Anyone have a spare buddy invite for the new Wolfenstein? I need to get those extra 250 points from the punch card, unless there's no achievements in the game trial...

Thanks for the heads up. I was able to grab one and am downloading it now.

Grabbed one too at that price. Too bad he doesn't have season 2.

Also picked Batman Evil Within. Too nervous to miss out, had hoped they would put these on sale. Really hard to pull the trigger at full price, been a while. Haha

Yeah I missed out on Guardians, and still need the season pass for Enemy Within, any specific date on when it's going away?

If you can, call them and try to cancel it. Seriously. Chargebacks will get your account permanently banned. I know this is what support told yo to do, but they are wrong.
 
Read this thread:
 
https://www.reddit.c..._support_tells/
 
And this:

Well my bank is closed for the day, but I had support just call me, gave them my support ticket number, and asked about the steps I took and about contacting my bank, they said my account will be ok. All I can do now is wait and see I guess. Maybe since I contacted support first and they have a support number for the case things will be ok. I can't see how following the instructions they give you would result in an account otherwise in good standing getting banned.

Yeah before I contacted them I changed out my password, so support really didn't do much of anything. Just surprised the only real thing they suggest is to dispute with my bank, that they don't actually do anything actually"supportive" at support.

See above post.
You're SOL if you aren't already an Xbox Insider but you should join the program anyway.https://support.xbox...insider-programhttps://support.xbox...box-insider-hub
90% of qs are answered in the two links. Just search for the Insider app in the Xbox Store to join.
If you want to switch "rings", go in the Insider app, click "This console is in ___/Select this to manage enrollment", click Manage on the next screen and switch to the Beta ring IF it's available to you.
Once you've joined the Beta ring, go to the Insider Content tab on the left and the option to join Xbox Game Pass Ultimate should be there.

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.

Are there any two+ player Mario Party type games on the One? Having people over and have nothing of that type to play.

Couldn't get past the map in Anthem. It kept telling me to select the mission, but I couldn't ever actually go anywhere. Uninstalled. I'll wait until the game has been out for six months and a decent sale knocks it down cheap. Learned my lesson with FO76, never buying an online game again until it's been out and updated for months.

I've got twenty bucks in credit to blow on a last purchase and still can't decide on what to pick up...

Dishonored 2 bundle
Diablo 3
Shadow of war
South park SBW
Injustice 2

Just can't decide...

complete under no flag war story for single player (took me way too long on medium difficulty)

if you can play multiplayer on the timed trial

call in 2 reinforcements in a round as a squad leader or 10 kills in a round may be the fastest

Fastest is playing an engineer in multiplayer, build ten reinforcement items, which takes like three minutes to do, and you get an achievement.

Just an FYI, CDKeys has obe month EA Access codes for $2.59

Just bought one, entered the code on my xbox, and already got my 6000 points for "buying' the Battlefield trial.

This must be a huge disaster for Bethesda, this is the fastest I've ever seen a big game get a $20 discount. Shadow of the Tomb Raider dropped by pretty quick, but that was still 3 weeks after launch. They're surely going to pass it off as a Black Friday thing, but we all know that sale started several days ago, and that it isn't the normal deal day either.

76's reviews have be worse than their worst case scenario expectations. Even on the highest platform it is now officially ranked worse on Metacritic than the universally hated Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel spin-off. Hell, Giant Bomb just said they're won't be a review from them because they don't want to bother fighting the bugs to suffer through to the ending. Word of mouth is in the toilet, they're getting trashed for the 50 gig "patch" that barely fixed anything, and now they've probably pissed off a good chunk of those who did give the game a chance by lowering the price so much so fast.

I think everyone that did buy this digitally should at least try to get a partial credit from Microsoft. Bethesda probably should do something nice for the people they screwed over too, give $20 worth of Atoms or some exclusive items or something.

I've been a Bethesda game fanboy since Morrowind, it was my reason for entering the world of Microsoft way back when, but my interest in '76 is Zero, even without reading all the bad reviews.

Didn't really play RDR on the 360, so not real interested in the new one. Westerns are definitely not an interest of mine, I mean the most I ever watched any was Little House on the Prarie...lol.

That Game Pass punch card was gone when I went to check the list of games. I had to find it on Reddit, hopefully it will still count since I have no way of checking now. As for the reward for the quest, in the past they have taken months to send them. Though I had to contact support multiple times when I heard other people getting the rewards, while I still had nothing. I'm still waiting for that same quest reward as you, as well as the Game Pass one for playing MCC.

Still waiting on the MCC one as well. They need to tie these things tighter to accounts, and give definitive info on actually completing them. Clicking a link, doing the stuff, and tgen just hoping it actually works isn't a great way for MS to give us confirmation.

I'm guessing it isn't for everyone, that just redirected to the rewards redemption page for me. Oh well.

Same, doesn't show for me either. Just the one standard credit reward offer. Heck, most things people find on here, like rewards offers, special deals, etc, never show up for me, or even work at all when links are posted. That three step one with the moongate never worked at all for me. The one for the 3000 points isn't working for me either. The punch card showed a checkmark, but I played several games from the two lists, got two achievements in each game just to be safe, and no advancement in the offer after waiting several days. These ms rewards things are just garbage. That Gold Quests too, played all three games for over 40 minutes each, used a timer to be safe, never heard anything after doing it. Meh.
