I've been here forever and still don't know how to multi quote on mobile. I probably need to give in and download tapatalk.


I just learned a few months ago that the check mark means to like a post. I used to think it was to report a post. At least I hope it is to like a post otherwise I've been reporting a lot of posts.

Question for you fine ladies and gents:

I'm getting conflicting stories on this one. If you play Skyrim with mods do you still get achievements? The mods make the game so much more fun/beautiful. Some folks have said yes they still got achievements with mods and others saying mods disable the achievements. So what is it?


On Xbox One they disable achievements

Dungeon Defenders 2 servers are being overloaded. A notice in the main menu said they are adding more servers. Hopefully that finishes soon

Posting here since this is the most Microsoft product-friendly thread around.

If you're a dope like me and own a Windows Phone, prepare to be incredibly angry.

Skype on Windows Phone (including 8/8.1/and SUPPOSEDLY older builds of 10) is being killed on July 1st.

I use Skype a lot on my Windows 8.1 Phone (probably the app I use the most) and I'm fuming. They can't even support their own fucking phones with their own major apps.

I was eyeing a new phone anyway since it's been exactly 2 years since I bought my current phone and the low amount of RAM (1 GB) was starting to get annoying. But between this, their lies about my phone being eligible for the W10 update (it wasn't, only eligible for a Windows Insider build because I guess they didn't want to bother making a public version) and the general shitty app selection, I'm set on getting an Android and I'll never be buying related to Windows Phone ever again.

I hear Windows 10 Mobile is STILL absolute garbage and worse than 8/8.1 even after 2 years of development, anyway. You'd be better off just giving up on phones entirely MS. Buying Nokia was a mistake.


I recently switched from Lumia 950 to Galaxy S8. I love gaming on WP but there was maybe one or 2 new games a month. I barely game on phone anyway but it is nice to have choices (and VR games). I'm still sad to see WP dying.

I am extremely sad to see Skype on WP getting killed. I spent hundreds, maybe thousands of hours talking to my girlfriend now wife through Skype on WP. For several months we literally were connected 24/7 in a Skype call. Sleep, eat, bathroom, appointments, family gatherings, etc.

Loved Dungeon Defenders, but devs barely supported Xbox 360 version. PC got practically 2 new games worth of content. I'll give 2 a chance.

MS billing website warns of losing the balance of my MS account if I change regions. Can anyone confirm it's safe to change region and change back without losing my balance?

Changing regions that way to get a deal could get you banned. Just use the link then sign in without changing regions

When my wife moved from Canada we didn't change regions on the account because it said she'd lose Groove sub we have through 2020. Asked support and they said she wouldn't then a supervisor said she would so we didn't risk it

Microsoft doesn't care. Unlike the Wii vs. Wii U thing, the Xbone, Xbone S and Xbone X all have access to the same games, and all MS really cares about is software sales since that's where the bulk of the money is. As long as little Jimmy is buying one of their machines, they're happy.



Little Jimmy should be happy to get an Xbox at all after his behavior last week

RIP. Xbox One X is $599.99 in Canada :wall:


CAD? That would be about $445 US. Cheaper than US

I am so excited because I wanna play like 10+ games from the conference, but then I realize I won't play any of these until 2019/2020 most likely...

Maybe I should be watching the 2011 E3 Conference and pretend the games just came out.


Microsoft is pretty good about showing games coming out within a year if they don't get canceled. The Sony conference will have loads of 2019 to 2020 that will look exclusive to Playstation, but not be exclusive

I used to use Bob10191 name and birth date, but that didn't last long as a website (maybe RuneScape) required one more character, so I added 0. I wanted Bob so I wouldn't be confused when people called my gamertag.

I also use RoyalBob5 on Twitch as Bob101910 was a name I used on JustinTV briefly. I guess they merged or something long after I stopped using JustinTV, so they wouldn't let me use Bob101910. RoyalBob5 goes back to Halo 2/all games clan Royal Five Pro.

Which is what the RFP in my gamertag stands for. We originally we're going to change our GTs to Royal"Name"5, but only a few members did so. RFP was more widely accepted amongst the clan. Still friends to this day

Maybe SP.com isn't being straight with me, but I see the two Sam & Max games, and what else?


Jurassic Park

You expect the game to be fixed in a few days, and you bought it at release so you must be interested. Is your plan to burn your 1/year refund and turn around and re-buy on Wednesday?

I don't think refunds are restricted to once per year. Not allowed to abuse refunds though by "renting" a bunch of games

played the first few levels of the titanfall 2 campaign, made going back to black ops 3 campaign tough as fighting the robots in bo3 is way less fun. Hard seems a little on the easy side for tf2 haven't died yet


TF2 gets a little tougher later on, but not too rough. The hardest thing in the game is the training achievement in x amount of time and even that isn't the worst.

This new Minecraft set looks huge! $250 for 2,863 pieces

Mooshroom Island set got me into Lego. Just bought my 5th and 6th sets. I've been addicted to Lego Minecraft. $250 is quite pricey for me, but this set looks great.
