Achievement tracking for the Rewards quests are totally borked for me. Completed a handful in the last 24 hours and none of them are tracking, they usually do. Anyone else having issues?

 

I'm having the same frustration. None of the 6 achievements in 2 dif games registered for the Weekly Rewards Quest, which is apparently going to break my streak. I tried the unplugging-hard reboot that was suggested above, but no luck. Any other suggestions?

Anyone else having issues with Bing searches not registering?

 

Do you mean the punchcard with searches over 3 days? I've done that every day for about a week and not a single one has registered.

I Gotta admit, Game Pass and the rewards quests are probably the greatest motivator I've ever had to start and finish games. I Feel like one of those commercials where I get paid to play games, except, you know, the pay is worse. Much worse.

Yeah. I bought The Turing Test over a year ago but hadn't played it until last night when I started it for the ID@Xbox quest. It's a fun Portal-like (so far).

I also got the free spin but I can't get it to "not" charge me.

 

Same here.

Does Cheapy really call acorns, "egg-corns"?

 

Yes, please address this on the next CAGcast. This word is a famous example of a kind of reanalysis that's actually very common in English (and other languages) where the make-up of a word is reconceived as deriving from something else.
