It was a lot easier to complete all the Halo Tenrai event challenges this week.

 

Only tricky/luck based one is ending an opponent's killing spree.

I've been in for i think 4 years and have gotten maybe 1 game and like 2 months of Gold. You aren't missing a thing. 

 

The program is good for the free month of Game Pass Ultimate every three months for hitting Diamond rank.

 

Won Yakuza Kiwami from one of the sweepstakes too.

Jump Force back to $5.99 again. Is it worth it for single player? Or does it suck that bad?

 

Played it through Game Pass and still had to force myself to finish it.

 

I love Naruto Ninja Storm and the DBZ Xenoverse games so it's not like I hate anime arena fighters.

I have completed 65 games in 2021.

 

https://www.trueachi...atalyst/periods

 

That isn't counting games like Forza Horizon 5, Halo Infinite, Psychonauts 2, Immortal: Fenyx Rising, and Guardians of The Galaxy that I beat but didn't go for all the achievements.

 

I'll probably beat a few more titles before the end of the year.

 

Hope everyone here had a good year.

 

I've had a pretty great year all things considered - Family is healthy, I'm still employed and get to work from home, Milwaukee Bucks won the NBA Championship, and I won a free pair of the Adidas Xbox shoes along with seven months of GPU.

I really should have just played Halo Infinite this evening instead...

Is there some resource that has tips to maximize these rewards? I know about the bing rewards, but I see people refer to rewards for buying games, watching movies, etc and I wonder if I'm missing out on some strategy to maximize points here.

Thanks

 

There's an old tutorial: https://www.reddit.c...for_ms_rewards/

 

It can seem a bit daunting at first, but once you get into the habit on doing it everyday it's easy.

Xbox Controller Clip from MOGA is half-off ($7.50), went ahead and bought it with spacebux since it ships for free without an order minimum.

Got one - Thanks for the heads up.

 

I had expiring auto redeemed Rewards credit with no clue what to spend it on.

Cuphead was never on Game Pass.

So it's a guaranteed Battle Pass rank up per day if you play at least 6 matches.

 

Not bad.

My Black Friday haul

 

Guardians of The Galaxy $30

Mass Effect Legendary Edition $28

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Pearl Double Pack $70

Life Is Strange True Colors $15

 

(Had free Best Buy Credit from my job to spend so I was fine paying the extra cash vs getting GoTG/Mass Effect at Wal-Mart)

Playing Haven before it leaves Game Pass and the game is so...awkward. The combat system feels it could've benefited allot more if it was an actual turn based combat not weird active'ish kinda turn based. Also the dialogue can get so fucking cringe. I'm not going to lie, I'm a man of culture, but some of the dialogue where it's them dirty talking to each other (you're playing as hot young teenage couple by the way) sounds on par with you being in a room when a family member are dirty talking each other and you want to leave...like immediately. Like there's a scene where they're playing an RPG and the dialogue gets stupid sexual and I kept thinking "Who the Fuck is this for???"

 

The dialogue doesn't get better.

Now I have a question about Bing lol so I signed up for the auto redeem does that usually hit right away on the first of the month? So then I have time to buy Control Ultimate (probably leaving Game pass) before end of sale?

 

The past few months it has hit early morning on the 1st, but sometimes it has been a day or two late.

The Halo campaign previews have me optimistic.

 

Sucks co-op isn't coming until May 2022 at the earliest though.

Nice, I just got my $35 Fanfest trivia prizes in email.  You have to first redeem them through the gear.xbox.com store though, it's not a normal Xbox code.

 

Same here.

 

Don't forget Xbox also sent FanFest members a 20% discount code for the Gear Shop too which stacks (though it expires 12/31).

 

In case anyone lost it the e-mail is titled "New Gear, New Offer, and FanFest Trivia is back!"
