Dunk Lords has a page, but I've only been able to find it from the link on the Games With Gold announcement.

I just did 100 searches on mobile to get the 100 daily Microsoft Rewards points on mobile since the change has already started for me.

 

God, that was torture.

I was really motivated with Operation 4 coming to Gears 5, they made a lot of good changes..then I stumbled across on the new achievement list...devastating..lol

I was able to stock up on plenty of salt from the TA comments.  Those are some pretty high requirements, particularly the kills and assists limited to Vs.

 

With the rebalancing of the Allies XP, I'm at level 5 with some people, but the achievement didn't pop for that.  Restarting the game didn't work, but haven't tried a hard reset of the console.

 

I've had Bloomy's drivatar knock me off the course so many times I cannot count. It's like, "What an asshole! (thanks for the dealz or whatever)".

Sounds about right.  Does my drivatar also take leads on corners by expertly riding the walls?

Don’t do them until they take you out of the trial.

If people are still willingly doing them for 1 point they’re gonna think it’s ok.

I was on TA and the gears forums, people on oth sides not very happy with this. And yeah the kills and Assists in only VS are way too high even if you do 125 Kills per Day in VS you will only have about 45k in 365 days assuming you play VS every day and get those kills...and assists not even counted since you can't get an assist and the kill at the same time..also without modifiers like in horde or escape to bosst damage, the 100,000,000 Damage achoevement will take a while as well..

As for the Best Friends and BFF achievements, they are bugged I spoke to a dev and we (me and other peole on the forums) were submitting support tickets for this bc the dev asked to do so.

I couldn't say because after you bully me off the course I usually go hide in the other room for an hour.

Ymmv but I saw people on reddit talking about letting your daily streak end removes you from the 1 pt search trial thing. Sucks to end a streak but atleast you’ll be back to normal

That makes sense. I was just thinking that the trial may be targeted at the heaviest users who accumulate the most points. I never do more than the daily searches, and sometimes not even the mobile searches.

Yea definitely could be, thankfully I haven't gotten put in it. You'll have to let us know if that works or not though I've seen a few people post on here about it.

Didn’t realize Grounded was out later this month. Carrion also looks promising. Good month!

I'm a little bummed to see Ooblets isn't going straight to Game Pass. It looked like it had Game Pass written all over it when I first heard about it.

 

I'll probably wait on it, I have too many games to play. And since it's game preview, it probably won't have any achievements.

 

I've been super curious about this game ever since the devs pissed off all of the Patreon backers by taking a deal with Epic without including them in the decision and then basically telling the backers if they are smart they will be happy with this choice in a super smug announcement.

If they change Bing searches for when the Xbox Series X rolls around, that's going to be a huge pain in the butt. But, it will free me from the prison of one achievement a day. And, I may start playing games for fun again, instead of playing them for points.

Was it at least with Bing points? And all that means is you deserve to get stomped in the dick.

Are you referring to something EVIL? And yup, with my Microsoft Rewards Silly Time Happy Fun Play Money tm and if anything all the controversy of PC gamers complaining spurred me on to buy it so they get a sale and I basically spent nothing! It's a win-win! I Think?

Any thoughts on the Season Pass content for the Far Cry games? Thinking of picking up Far Cry 3-5 though I see Far Cry 5 season pass includes FC3. Played some of 5 before and enjoyed what I played but haven't played the other 2. I mainly play campaign content and not multiplayer. Thanks for any input and suggestions

So they offer badges for up to a 999 day streak. But then penalize you if you hit those streaks. Makes no sense.

Juju is a pretty fun but very basic 2.5D platformer. It's nothing super impressive. But, if it had come out on something like the PlayStation 2, it would have blown people's minds. It feels pretty dated by modern platforming game standards. But, still a good choice of free game for Gold members.

Well it was a recent change, but yea still doesn't make sense. Those badges don't really give you anything though as far as I know other then bragging rights

From all the videos and comments I've seen, the FC5 DLC is so bad that all of them say you shouldn't waste your time with them. I had the same dilemma, but ended up just grabbing 3 for $3 knowing I can spend that $6 elsewhere. And I did, and I grabbed Shiness and How to Survive 2.

Retro pixel type games are hitting the spot for my brain right now. Jumped into CrossCode, digging it so far. I really thought gaming was over for me but Game Pass is saving me

It's a shame that Double Fine dropped Ooblets, it would have been a great addition to Game Pass.
