I know they’ve been mentioned but Endless Legend and Astrologaster on pc gamepass take a combined hour to complete and I was able to do them even though my computer is a piece of shit.

The Gardens Between was actually the longest game I completed for the 10k and that took around 1:30 if I remember correctly.

Subnautica is like 45 mins with console commands on PC too. It’s included in Gamepass. I’m not buying any games to get to the 10k

The fastest achievements are the individual Kunio games. Literally takes 2 minutes to get 600 points each. Then just get the decent Ratalaika games and get 1000 in like 10 minutes each game.

Finished up the 10K today.

 

Never played Ark so I used the admin commands to get a lot of GS.

 

250K MS Rewards points saved now.

 

Hope the MS Store gets a lot more Series X consoles in stock.

I'm just playing a bunch of games to get the 10,000 in achievements for the Bing points.  I'm not even at 2000 points yet.  What a grind.

 

 

 

 
I’ve downloaded a bunch of the free and old GWG games. There were several games that would have given me quick achievements I had already finished. After the first day, I knew I couldn’t hit the 10k but I’m close to getting enough that would equate to $5. That’s fine with me.

I am at around 5k earned myself and I a not planning to get much further.  Even with the easy achievement games it seems like too much work to me for too little rewards.

Nice. I hit the max rewards redemption limit this month myself.  No more rewards redemption for me until next year. I have around 80k points now. I will certainly rack up enough points between now and next year to purchase a Series X with rewards points.

Hey achievement hunters, just saw this on the MK 11 upgrade faq. Shared achievements between Xbox One and Xbox Series. I actually like this and I hope most games are shared lists. I'd rather keep working towards completing a game on the new system rather than starting an achievement list over. This is especially true with the long hours I've put into ESO and Dead by Daylight.

It might be worth it if it's a game that has high point level achievements.  The Gardens Between averages out at 80 points per achievement whereas Hotshot Racing averages out at 15 points per achievement.  So I'm trying to finish The Gardens Between since it's on GamePass, but I hate games like The Gardens Between.  Not enough action.

Do you think Xbox series x will fix some long running Xbox issues? My top 4:

1. Sometimes pressing A and nothing happening.
2. Controller disconnecting for no reason only to reconnect roughly 5 minutes later.
3. Static in connect mic in controller.
4. Links on dashboard like “play the cod Cold War beta” being clicked and taking you to the damn storefront with no tile but having to search it instead.

I'm in Alpha and i have all the same issues. The controller disconnect seems to be more of a battery thing. It never happens when i use normal ones, but as soon as i switch to rechargeables i have to swap them out daily to charge or i get random disconnects.

I am trying to finish Mr. Pumpkin Adventure which has easy achievements, but is definitely not my kind of game either. Some of the puzzles in the game are very tricky and you need to follow a guide if you want to complete the game quickly which is something I really don't like doing. I'd rather just play the game and have fun.

there is a free game called heart box that has easy achievements to get that I've been milking for a while now if anyone needs a random game to get their daily 50 points easily from

 

it's a puzzle game you can either figure out yourself or if you just want a quick achievement you can just watch an ad (there is really no watching it's just  a matter of 2 quick clicks) for the solution and you can power through the levels easily

 

I really recommend it also it'll prevent you from having to get achievements on random gamepass games so you can save those for potential future quests

 

34 achievements

Thanks to those who suggested doing PIxArk with a 1h trial and console commands, it was an easy 1000G. I'm now 255G away from completing 10 000.

 

Has anyone mentioned Wandersong (it's on GP)? You input a stage select code at the beginning and then you can rush through the achievements with a guide in no time.

I have seen #4, but I have no idea what you are talking about with any of the others.

Welp, one thing this Rewards quest has done is made me shoot my gamer score up quite a bit, and as it got closer to reaching the milestone, I decided to play around with the numbers. May I present...

Now I can go nuts again. Many thanks to everyone listing easy games, and big thanks to Moving Out for working on my old ass MacBook with Windows dual loaded so that I could get the 1 point achievement on both Xbox and Windows :)

I've had some weird controller disconnect happen occasionally. Not sure what causes it. I have also noticed pressing A not responding but figured that was just my imagination.

Oh shit maybe I am in alpha also. My dashboard is some pretty changing shit these past few weeks. I turned that on way back when but haven’t been back. Should probably check that.

Nice, how can you tell how much have you redeemed so far for the year and how much is the max per year? is there somewhere we can check or you just keep tabs on it?

I'm really interested in Obra Dinn at %50 off. ($10)  Today is the last day of the sale.  But it feels like a great fit for Game Pass one day.   What to do..... Maybe I should just tackle my backlog for now.

 

Interestingly this weekend the dev discounted it 50% everywhere to celebrate the anniversary. But Sony straight up rejected his discount request. Too good of a deal or what?

I got it so you can thank me when it goes to GamePass.
Pretty cool game. Sort of like a first person game of Clue but better than that sounds.

The final boss fight was tedious but fine. The one before it with the spring-jumps and time-limited weak spots, though, was controller-breaking, rage-quitting nonsense.

I am kind of glad I never finished this game I think.  I am close to the end but don't remember that boss fight.  I got annoyed with all the swing around platforming nonsense.  That isn't Doom IMO.  Always intended to go back and finish it but so far haven't.  Maybe I should play Doom 64 instead.

Agred. First fps (and Doom) I ever quit

Any sign of the Halloween sale?

I have wanted to buy Five Nights at Freddy’s for a long time and they’re reasonably priced at $7.99 each but maybe they would go on sale for an event like that.

$10 is the right price for Orba Dinn although I was in no way disappointed paying full price day one. There's not much out there quite like it. I guess you could kind of lean into it's a "walking sim" but ha as AWP said "First person clue" sure I can go with that. I think it's a decent Halloweenie game, it's got nice creep factor but not a jump scare thing.

Anyone have issues with Gears 5 getting stuck on a loading screen either just trying to get into the game and then after leaving a game to go to a lobby? This has been happening a bunch to me and then after I quit out my Xbox won't launch anything else until I restart it? Is this a Gears thing or a thing related to the updated UI?
