Looks like it's my turn for a piece of devastating personal news. I've been doing all the shopping for my grandfather during the pandemic so he can be safe at home. He is 86 years young. I've noticed that he has seemed off balance this last month and this week he actually asked me for help with yard work he likes to do himself. I felt like something was wrong but I thought maybe it was just because he had been sitting at home for 2 months not exercising. He is the type of person that does not tell family about issues he is having, he doesn't want to worry them. Yesterday he was complaining about stomach pain, he thought it was something he ate but he looked pretty rough when I saw him. This morning it was worse, we called 911 because he was pale and weak, unable to walk. It ends up he has really had pain for 4 days. They rushed him to the hospital and found internal bleeding. He was given a blood transfusion and the scans show intestinal blockage, likely cancer. He is having emergency surgery tomorrow morning.  I'm completely fucked up right now trying to deal with it. He is the bravest bad-ass I know. A military veteran and the rock of our family. He is scared to death to be at the hospital right now with how bad the virus is here. We can call him, but no visitors allowed

Grandparents rule!  Will be praying for him and your family.

Was this an email, a message on your Xbox, something that popped up as an ad on your Xbox?

It was an email.from Turn 10 asking If I wanted to participate in Xbox research and be compensated with a year of Game Pass Ultimate. Turn 10 has always been solid for rewarding research. They asked for me not to watch the.event live, but to wait until they send me a link and answer questions in a certain amount of time.

As someone who is in a similar position as you but also able to step back and see it from an outside perspective, this seems kind of silly (and I say this about myself as much or more than about your own comment).  The only real game in the franchise that you have finished is the very first one from a decade ago and you apparently own several others and you're wondering about buying another one?  This game will go on sale 10 more times for this price or better before you will even get to it and it will probably get remastered to Series X, Series Y, or PS6 someday. 


All that being said, I've only finished one AC (Black Flag) and own several others and I am still tempted to buy this very same game you are.

  Thanks!  You helped me not see myself as a bad CAG for passing up a sale on a game I want to buy...eventually.

Question guys.

Im trying to do the dc universe auick level up to level 30. I have the item in my inventory. It wont let me equip it though. How do you use the item to do the instant level up

It's used in the character selection screen, I think you press X to advance. If you have the item it will just do it, if not then the game will ask you to purchase the advance item.

If you suck at Gears 5 multiplayer, like I do, and want that 500 rewards point punch card; you can get a quick achievement by starting 5 custom arcade death match games set to 1 round and all members of opposing team locked.

Never did finish watching the show, but I'm pretty okay with anything involving Summer Glau.

Ditto, but add Shirley Manson to the mix so I did finish the whole series.

Do any of you have the Mortal Kombat Kollection on 360 (not backwards compatible). I put myself through hell last night beating the 3 arcade games and I'd like to clean up the online achievements. There are only two easy ones but no one plays this game anymore

I need those online achievements as well. Hit me up to coordinate

Man... my dog passed this morning. I could see it coming for a few weeks now, but nothing could have prepared me for the circumstances that it happened under. Trying to hold it together for my wife who is in deep mourning, but it's hard. My entire life, dogs were nothing but pets that came and went. But Leo was family. He slept with me, ate with me, licked my head for hours at a time if I would let him. Part of me wants to play some games to take my mind off of it... part of me just wants to sit and think about him. Anything help you all out in this situation?

Sorry for your loss. I believe I understand your pain. My dog for 17 passed away a while back, and I can't go through that pain again if I were to get another dog. They become family.

Random codes if anyone wants them.

Got the GTA one, thanks!

NBA 2K19 shows up as "With Gold, play this game, or buy to own." for me. I don't remember it ever being a GWG title.

Bought a PS4->XB1 Brooks adapter. Works great. Feels so much better using a DualShock 4 to play games that make heavy use of the D-pad like fighting games and platformers.

Blasphemy!!! Offset analog sticks or GTFO!!!!
All kidding asside the Kronus device would have been a better option, which would allow the use of any controller on an console. PS4 on a Wii if that's your thing.....weirdo!

How are you getting a year of gamepass for $1? It's usually $1 for a one month "trial".

Read more than the last post? It's being offered to Beta and Alpha Insideres

I like my xbox to work, after reading stories of consoles breaking or specifics not working after insider updates, Microsoft would need to guarantee me a brand new console for me to join up.

I had to factory reset my Xbox from a USB boot drive. The tech that helped me fix my console said if that didn't work then the console would be bricked. I opted out of Beta as soon as I could and no amount of new features could get me ti go back.

RIP Peter Mayhew aka Chewbacca

Noooo! He was such a nice person, an all around great guy. Met him at Celebration once, I was sitting down taking a break and he just sat next to me to do the same. Started chatting up, just such a nice guy. He was missed in TLJ and Solo and now he'll simply be missed.

Welp... I REALLY shoould get the missing Telltale Games I don't have yet...


Need to rip open my Tell Tale discs and check if I can download the episodes. Disc versions of Game of Thrones are useless if you did not download episodes before the delisting.
