Weekly quests are out.

DayZ is the game you just have to launch (25pts) and Cities: Skyline you have to play (100pts).

As a reminder DayZ is part of XCloud so next time you are in the bathroom just launched it from your phone like I am doing now

Wow, wtf Xbox?   That has to be the weakest month of GWG they've offered in a long time.  Especially on the 360 side, which is only original Xbox games this month(no 360 games).  If it wasn't for Apex Legends requiring XBL Gold to play online(yet PS4 doesn't require PS+ for it), I probably wouldn't renew next month.

Remember that Xbox gold weekly deal where it was only just gamertag name change for half off? That shit humbled my ass I realize. That was the bottom of the barrel to reveal only an infinite loop of empty barrels.

I bought override a few months ago thinking that it would be fun. But, the controls are pretty bad. I ended up fighting with the controls more than I was fighting other giant robots.

What is the maximum amount of time that you can redeem a Gamepass subscription for? I thought that it was close to 3 years or 36 months.

You can't redeem any code that would take you over 36 months.

My only reason for liking good GwG offerings is that I don't have to worry so much about a countdown. They are usually games that go to the backlog while I worry about completing Game Pass games that might expire. I already feel like I am in a losing battle with Game Pass (not a bad thing) but it usually takes a game off the pile for play down the road.

Portal Knights is supposed to be a pretty fun game especially in couch co-op, so that seems like a decent offering.

 

Regardless I’ll always be team Xbox

I'll always be team wallet.

I couldn't even redeem a 6 month code until I had 29 months left because it was trying to give me a free month for turning auto-renew back on.

PSA that Carrion has a two point achievement that is so easy I got it by accident five minutes in.

Thankfully there is also an eight point achievement so it balanced out.

Code Vein is down to $14.99 at Best Buy. Had been tempted by it in the past. Guess I’m going physical on this one.

Heads up, just got a Microsoft Store e-mail with the subject "Tell us your thoughts and get a movie on us" where upon completion of a survey you get a free code for a recently released movie up to $14.99 in value. Code will be e-mailed to you at a later date.

Just got my first 4 star car with Forza Street of course it was not the one I wanted to aid in my progress to finally finishing the game. 

 

In other news Majornelson posted the 360 titles included in todays sale.

Im really not worried about gwg anymore anyways. Gamepass more then makes up for the gwg games


I’ve assumed they’re going to kill off GWG with the series X

After a couple hours playing it with my wife, Grounded really seems promising.

GPU includes GwG so I don't think they'll kill it.

With the GWG being such a let down and the sale this week being such a bust(if you found something, no offense), this is a bummer of a Xbox week. Sorta wish I had bought some stuff last week. Hopefully Saints Row the Third Remastered will be discounted soon.

Free Psychonauts: https://www.microsof...ts/c5hhpg1txdng

 

I had to use a VPN to grab it from outside of the US.

Woo-hoo! Awesome! I do love some classic Tim Schafer! I started this way back in the day when it came out on PS2 but never finished it. I definitely need to get it knocked out before the sequel comes out!

My guess would be that since Double Fine is an Xbox Game Studio now, they want to ramp up a little hype for Psychonauts 2 coming to Game Pass.


 

 

 

A little off topic: Anyone want to jump online with You Don't Know Jack (360) this week? I have a couple achievements to clean up. Also, darthfracas, I know you finished the game but are you still up for some Catan?

When I clicked on the link in the email this morning, it said that the survey had ended.  Oh well.  Easy come, easy go.

I didn't even get the email. After not getting this email, and not getting the $10 from Sony, I can only assume that gaming companies are fickle masters, or that the universe is against me.

Looks like Pyschonauts being free was a glitch -- when I first went to the link it was showing free but kept getting an error that something went wrong on their side - now it shows up at $9.99
