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. For the back story on this word and others, check out: http://eggcorns.lascribe.net

I'm thinking about giving Just Cause a try. I played a couple of hours of JC2 but didn't get very far. Is there any reason to play 3 or should I just jump to 4? I know that 4 didn't review well but it seems like that's mostly b/c people felt it was more of the same. I have Game Pass so price isn't a factor.
