@Grumblevolcano same here, super annoying! I didn't check the rewards app before playing Titanfall 2 for my daily achievement.

I didn't know if it was a local issue or not because my Xbox was being a bit slow anyway. I have my Xbox unplugged currently. I was going to plug it in before midnight to see if it works. If not then uninstall/reinstall the app. Might not bother though if it's a xbox-wide issue

@Grumblevolcano quick shout to say that mine is working now! Thought I'd tag you before it got midnight/1am whenever it all refreshes. Not sure if fully shutting down/unplugging the Xbox helped or not

Thought I'd give a quick shout regarding the MS Rewards top 10: Bethesda edition punch card for 500 points.

Obvs have to activate the punch card first

I haven't played any of the games but I did have Doom Eternal installed. There's a relatively simple achievement on that game that I used to complete this punch card.

Mix and Match - Play as 5 different Player Demons in BATTLEMODE

Open Doom Eternal > Click Multiplayer > Click BATTLEMODE. You have to run through the tutorial for it but after that you can choose "Quick Match", "Slayer" or "Demon". Choose "Demon". When you get to the lobby, just hit RB to cycle through the demons and play a game with each one to unlock.

The achievement doesn't "track", it'll just pop when you have completed a game with each of the 5 demon types.

That's strange as the app worked fine on my Series X yesterday. I'm in the US, but I wouldn't think that would make any difference with that. Of course, given the time difference maybe it was down for a while and I just never knew it.

@KilloWertz ah that's weird, maybe it was a regional thing. It happened on Saturday. To be fair I have no idea when our days start and end comparative to eachother. I sort of know that Ohio (because I have family there) is either 8 hours ahead or behind us but how much of Sunday is actually Saturday for them or vice versa is beyond me 😅. I just can't picture it!

If anyone needs a quick achievement for the bethesda punch card, Prey has one for not turning up for work on your first day. Just wake up and put on your uniform by the apartment door then leave the room, turn left and take the elevator to the roof. Now jump onto the nose of the helicopter then jump up into the blades. Takes less than a minute.

@ralphdibny I'd be 8 hours behind you then (I live in Ohio too).

I don't feel like putting enough thought into figuring out if I used the Rewards app on my system during the time you mentioned or not though. It's working now, which is all that matters I guess.

If anyone is doing the subnautica achievements hack on a series s/x just a heads up the achievements won't come up. You have to either load your save up on an Xbone or via xcloud. I did it via xcloud but you need to wait an hour or so for it all to sync up before you try it.

I've hit 100K points today which is about £85 in vouchers. Not too bad I guess for 6 months of gaming.

I'm past the 117k points mark which is the amount that translates to £100 worth of gift cards!


It looks like the "Hydrogen Element" method of Bing Searches isn't working any more. The page looks different and there's no button to click to the next element. Here in the UK at least. So I've reverted back to the nonsense typing method.

There's also a cheeky but low scoring Olympic month punch card on the MS Rewards page (online) for 100pts

@IndoorHero nice one! Almost half way there on the controller! I'm saving for a series X 😅 so I'm almost a quarter of the way there

Cheers for the tip on the sports team, I'll give that a try tomorrow!

I'm at 83K. I look up Xbox then live then gold then games then list and just work my way through the years. That's in mobile. On the PC for the extra 100 daily points i look up 360 and Xbone games lists for a bunch of years. Only a few minutes and I'm done

@IndoorHero that's the idea anyway 😅

@Krzzystuff ahh cool, good to know that there is a couple more workarounds. Going to try them out tomorrow!!

@ralphdibny your picture is oddly disturbing...I'm pretty sure she's not trying to do what I think she is but....I'm not sure sure

@Krzzystuff haha sorry, the character is actually a he! It's Girahim from Zelda Skyward Sword and I'm not exactly sure what he's trying to do but I would assume it's not far off your imagination 😅. Its part of a larger picture:

Untitled

The game plays on androgyny and this character is a feminine man but there is also a female character who is a bit of a tomboy. So it's an easy mistake to make!

But yeah, I just got a bit uncharacteristically hyped for the skyward sword remaster and thought I'd try out a gif as a profile pic. I may go back to my Doom Patrol one at some point!
