So with the latest update to Mortal Kombat 11, the PC coding got datamined again. Some interesting finds in there that hint at future dlc characters. Keep in mind, this is the same methoding that revealed ALL the characters in Kombat Pack 1. Spoilered below for those that don't want dlc ruined

Spawn is a badass DLC character. Love his moveset...find myself laughing at the fact the new Power Rangers game is a brawler in the same vein as MK. Thank you game pass, for giving me this gem!

I'm at 314,439 with 652,739 lifetime on one account, and 223,449 with 656,789 lifetime on another.I mostly use it for Hulu, which used to be the best value on there, but it now one the worst. But I can't imagine actually paying for it each month.

134,903 with 331,502 lifetime points - Just started in late 2017.

 

I'm still set on Game Pass Ultimate until 11/30/2022 so I am gonna pass on the Hot Deal.

 

Debating on saving points to get a Series X next year or caving and buying it at launch.

 

 

 

2021 will be the 20th Anniversary of Xbox so I'm hoping there's a LE Series X.

What's the hot deal right now? I saw that $5 and $10 Xbox gift cards were back, but they were back to their normal points price.

92,327 lifetime points, and I've only had my Xbox for about three or four months. My current balance is almost 4,000 points, I've been tempted into using my points to buy games and dlc that I want for free. I really need to learn to be like the rest of you, and stop giving into temptation so easily. I probably would have over half the cost of a Series X saved up if I didn't keep spending them, by the time it comes out.

I really need to stop preordering games till the last day to do so. preorder RE3 last month and now a see a punch card for 6,000 pts for preorder. I did this as well for DOOM but was able to cancel and reorder for the pts. I'm also missing 4,000 pts for the Star Wars movies. :wall:

 

3,916 pts and 706,401 lifetime

32,434 points with 296,674 lifetime points. I kept using them for Xbox purchases and I didn't keep up with streaks until recently (currently at 69 days).  The last thing I used them on was a year of Xbox Live.

 

 

I've been in a "need to get through my backlog" mindset so I see my spending taking a major decrease while going through physical media for Xbox 360, PS3, Nintendo consoles, etc..  After Resident Evil 3, I can't think of any games I want that are coming out.  Nevertheless, I keep hoping for a new Timesplitters release and/or a Switch bundle with Super Mario Maker 2.

I never thought I'd favor digital over physical games, but GWG and now Game Pass sure has made the allure of not managing physical media more normal, since the vast majority of games I have installed are by some type of digital license.

 

At 23k points for $25, a 6000 point bonus is approx $6.XX off, making it more comparable to pre-release sales ($50 at Amazon), minus not being able to sell or trade it in. 

 

I'll probably end up buying a digital game or two *FF7 and/or RE3) with the stimulus check and donate the rest to a local relief fund. Everyone wins!

I heard that we have to pay that money back in next year's taxes. So, I think I'm going to open a savings account with it, and just let it sit there for a year. That way I can pay it all back in taxes next year, and still maybe have $30 or $40 left to spend on myself.

Does anyone know if jedi fallen order is still a little wonky on xbox? Heard it had some issues at release. I'm starting reduced hours at work next week so I'm hoping with Archives in overwatch coming to an end I'll be able to pull away from animal crossing for a bit to play star wars that I got for christmas.

I’m playing it right now. No issues. What do you mean by wonky?

They've patched it a ton, but I have heard that it still has some tiny issues. Like the spider boss disappearing.

I got it at launch and beat it. The only issues I had were maybe a few crashes and sometimes didn't like being in sleep mode (like every new title this year... Ori, Doom, etc). Totally playable and well worth playing.

 

I think there were some achievements that glitched also but I believe that was patched.

Glad to hear the issues have been patch and weren't too serious other than crashing. I had just read about small things online, not assassins Creed unity problems. Wanted to start it at the beginning of the year but a bunch of multiplayer games have been having events and I completed like 11 shorter backlog games.

I might as well grab that deal. I think that makes it about $10 a month. I don’t use my points often anymore lately.

You won’t have to pay it all back.. never have before on any stimulus.
Now next years taxes will probably have either a checkbox or line to enter the amount you ultimately receive this year (may be more than 1 stimulus) and we *may* have it added to your total income *or* have it taxed at a lower rate, possibly zero.

If there was some clause saying it had to be paid back next year.. it would be all over the news cause there are a ton of watchdog groups that have gone through the bill, both for and against.

Last stimulus I kinda remember a checkbox, but can’t remember if it was tax deferred or not taxed in the end. The business stuff is different though.

NYtimes has a QA on the stimulus. Says you won’t have to pay it back or be taxed on it.

SIX min WHISTLE

Just wrapped up my first work from home week. Actual work was coming in slow so hopefully nothing happens down the line to cut hours or get laid off like some unfortunate people at my company were. On the flip side, I saw something about those on unemployment getting a boost of $600 per week from this stimulus, for 4 months. This would be ridiculously high boost for likely everyone that was laid off at this place, and most of the other jobs that were shut down in my area.

 

I probably am going to pick up a game. I'm hearing RE3 is fairly short like the old game (it leaked somewhere and there was a full playthrough up) so I think I'm go for Animal Crossing.

That would actually be in line with movie studios going direct to home with some of the big theatrical releases these days.

The shelter in place is starting to get to me. The house has been packed up for our move and I can’t play Xbox for a couple weeks until we get settled into the new place.

I know, first world problems.
