#14254960 XBL Deals - DwG: FH3, Dirt Rally 2, Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Crysis, more...

Did my daily tasks and searches this morning ok.

It probably worked itself out by the time you did your searches and tasks. 

 

Early this morning the site was having a bunch of issues. I had to take their quiz like ten times before it checked off the list. It is on their end.

I figured, but thanks for the confirmation.  When I was having the same issues you mentioned in multiple browsers and  apps I assumed it was something on the server side.  This is the first time I had this sort of issue. The XBox app is really bad because I assume it is just crashing since I was getting booted back to the dashboard with no error messages whatsoever.  That is pretty poor programming in my opinion.

Now I got 10 dollars of credit from MS and I'm tempted to get Final Fantasy 7 despite me saying I'm better off waiting for it to hit Game Pass.  LOL

Give in to your feelings. Strike down your desire to save money and your journey towards the dark side will be complete!

How many games a year does one need to finish in order to keep video games as a hobby? I only really played Forza Horizon 4 all year and did not care to finish any of the new releases that came out. Do I need to get rid of my Xbox now? Also, I do not play mobile games at all, do I have to give away my phone?

[sarcasm]It's your job to finish games as a video game hobbyist darn it! [/sarcasm]

 

Seriously.  I don't think he understands what the word hobby means.  I rarely finish games anymore. Too little time and too many games to play.   I am still trying to level up one character in Borderlands 3 to level 50 and I have only scratched the surface with Jedi the Fallen Order. These are 2 games I really enjoy by the way.  I still love video games. I just have a lot of other things I have to take care of before I can enjoy my hobby.

I have a ducktales remastered code for XBox 360 to give away. I will give it to a forum regular who shows interest.

 

gamegirlpocket posted about the amazon sale for ducktakes. I bought 2 which is the max I could buy. I gave one code to my close friend. The other is for someone on the forum :)

I'm closing in on 100,000 Reward Points. Goddammit, Microsoft. Put those XBox credit on sale so I can continue buying things for free at a good volume while you sell my search information to random companies. Companies who will know I search for "Texas Steakhouses" and "Texas Steakhouse" followed by "Texas Steakhous" and so on until I get a longer suggestion.

I am sitting on 130,000 and counting myself lol. Where are the hot deals? Seems like they have disappeared.




#14224467 Nintendo eShop Deals - 1/10: New Year's Sale! 1000+ items on sale!

Posted by entexman on 02 November 2019 - 01:36 PM

Lol, ok so if it dramatically takes a turn for the worse or the better please chime in, otherwise ill assume its a fairly decent game from what you and Tyler and Dave said....seems like its reflecting Close to the meta score at least (7-8/10).....now I was HOPING a IP. Luigi title that others were really looking forward to wouldve had a lot more hype and good reviews like a STRONG 8.5-9/10, but there is at LEAST a steady glow to the reviews....

I dont mind if anyone else wants to throw their 2 cents either !
Thx chris

It's another Luigi's Mansion game. It seems like a solid game. I played up to the first boss character. Not really my kind of game, but I had fun playing it. I got this game for my one son since he loves the series.  If you enjoy the series you will like this one too I would expect.

Has anybody gifted a game that had a 6000 point punch card? Wondering if both tags get it or just one. 

I have gifted games before and the points go to who purchased the game not the person getting the gift.

I don't know if anyone has noticed, but the Nintendo vouchers can't be redeemed unless you have a paid online subscription. Talk about a load of crap. Not being able to use something you paid for just because you don't have a sub.

It was a Nintendo Online exclusive offer. Not sure why this is a surprise. 

 

Here is some of the fine print from the offer:

 

 

 

** Paid Nintendo Switch Online membership required at the time of purchase and redemption of the Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers. The Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers must be redeemed within 12 months from purchase date,

Some of the funniest times in BL2 was crashing with the stupid cars while playing co-op.  After missing a required jump a bunch switching drivers after the passenger is like you suck let me drive.  Then watch him crash even worse.    Hope to play an hour or two tonight but not sure if I will have much time until Sunday. 

Been there done that with my friends in the past in Borderlands  lol :) I was playing tonight with one of my real world online Xbox friends and the driving around the map was hilarious as we both learned the controls. Good times...

 

I am really enjoying Borderlands 3 much more than I anticipated.

Well, experienced my first crash in BL3.  Had just picked my Vault Hunter and began the game when I noticed the subtitles were off.  Went to my settings to see if they reset and the game froze.  Had to quit and restart.  Maybe because I went to check the club section in the dashboard.

That sucks. So far no issues for me. Not very far into the game yet. Having fun. I have to get used to the new UI. I was doing side quests and I took on one that was a couple levels higher than my current level and was getting knocked down a bit. 

 

I love the new vehicles. They seem easier to drive than in previous BLs games.

You know what. I work all week. I rarely get to game during the week. Friday evening is one of my prime times to play on Xbox, Tonight I have not been able to login for the last hour or so. How is that acceptable for an online service? This is not the first time I have encountered such a problem this year. I am seriously doubting Microsoft's ability to deliver next gen at this point. I am sorry. Outages like this are just an indicator of Microsoft's inability to deliver reliable services in the future. I am done with gaming on the Xbox platform moving forward unless these serious issues are addressed soon.

 

I know most of you think I am whining, but I feel very strongly about the current lack of  reliability of Xbox live services.

It must be pretty serious if you feel compelled to complain to strangers almost a dozen times.

I don't consider this board "Complete Strangers". I have played online with some members here and I follow this thread every day. A dozen times? Now who is exaggerating?

With all due respect though, prior to this week when did you experience an outage? I just feel that your use of the term "constant" is a bit egregious. Obviously none of us are on 24/7 but I have experienced just as much stability with XBL as I have with Amazon, Facebook, or whatever other mega online dependent entity you can think of.

It sucks for sure though. I have been enduring my 12 year old agonizing for the last hour and a half that it's the end of the world because he can't play Fortnite.

There have been multiple outages this year. At least 5 I can remember. This is certainly not an isolated incident. That is the reason I am voicing my opinion. If this was a one off I would be totally fine with it.

You know what I have been on this board for years and I rarely comment on things that bother me. I have been gaming for many years and I am a huge fan of Xbox. Why else would I be on this board? When I complain about something you might want to think about why I am voicing my opinion. That's all I have to say about my "complaining".
