  1. A smidge off-topic. But there was a very long time in my life where all I knew of David Bowie was his role in Labyrinth. I knew nothing of his musical career outside of that film.
  2. Don't forget to click on the drop-down in Edge (desktop - don't know if it's on mobile) and go to the shopping area. Scroll down a bit to find the daily "guess the lowest price" game. 10 guesses per day. 10 points for each correct guess.
  3. They can get a bit funny at the end of the month. It will probably be back tomorrow.
  4. I've spotted a new way of getting some extra points every day. If you open a new tab in Microsoft Edge (I can only speak for the PC version), you get a feed with loads of recommended news articles and stuff. If you choose the "Gaming" submenu, then one of the articles that appears along the top row is a Microsoft Rewards one. Just click it to get the points.
  5. Didn't seem to be clocking up for me either. But just played through a whole level on easy and it pinged when I completed the level.
  6. I've got to say. I was convinced that it was you, but you having no knowledge of it is making me second-guess myself. It may have been Mat. It was all getting a bit hazy around that time.
  7. It was right when we were about to start the late night, drunken laser quest session. So that would make sense.
  8. Yes David. Thanks also for stepping in when the woman in laser quest asked what the name on my badge even meant. And you gave her the explanation of a Chode. You cheeky scamp.
  9. Boom! Just finished* this with 120 hours on the clock. What a ride! * I know that there are areas and bosses I haven't found. Something to go back for.
  10. Is that the one on the bridge? If so, I ran to one of the little balcony areas, waited for him to get up to the other side of the wall. Utilised the terrible collision detection to stab him through the wall, then once he looked like we was going to come around the wall, I ran to the next balcony area. And repeat.
  11. We're big fans of Michael Portillo's Great Railway Journeys when it comes to gentle television. And NHK World is our go-to background TV channel when nothing else is on. Lots of documentaries about Japan. Including travel and craftsmanship. Very chilled.
  12. If you think you were close to getting it in two... Wordle 230 4/6 ⬛🟩🟨⬛🟨 ⬛🟩🟩🟩🟩 ⬛🟩🟩🟩🟩 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩
  13. Those trailers are nothing like the books. Where is the coffee?
  14. Judgment could be tricky. My girlfriend is into a lot of Japanese stuff and was occasionally glancing over my shoulder with interest as I was playing this. However, it's more serious tone in the main missions is not reflected in the side missions. So I felt I had to explain that I'd taken on a case from a teenage girl to track down whoever it was that was stealing her knickers from the washing line, as y'know.. this sort of stuff can happen. It became somewhat more problematic when a fist fight with the culprit culminated with him sniffing the stolen knickers in order to power-up for the fight.
  15. I went from being indifferent and just using it farm a few easy achievement/reward points while furloughed, to really loving it and getting every achievement possible, including some tricky ones. I've managed to find loads of clever ways of speed running the levels too.
  16. Using the threat detector to cover the rear: https://www.xbox.com/play/media/SY766F48
  17. It really is amazing that a company that codes operating systems as a core part of its business can have such problems running an online rewards scheme.
  18. Don't forget your streak bonuses. They can add a hefty extra chunk of points here and there.
  19. Well I've got Game Pass on my Xbox, and I see that there's plenty of Yakuza games to get stuck into on there.
  20. Chalk me up as a newcomer to Kamurocho with Judgment. Having watched trailers and the odd Youtube vid in the past, I've always been a bit unsure as to whether I'd like the Yakuza games. And as the series has grown ever larger, it's put me off the idea of giving them a try (let alone considering where to start). When I saw Judgment released and it being it described as a more serious version of Yakuza that requires no prior knowledge, I procrastinated but decided it probably still wasn't for me. However, a recent mention of it on TCGS a month or so back - and how it was on sale on PS5 for £15, tempted me to give it a go. So 40 hours in I've completed the game and thoroughly enjoyed my time with it. While the main story was quite straight, there were still plenty of outlandish side cases and stories to lighten the mood. And it looked great too. I've still got some unfinished business with the outstanding side cases and drone racing, so I'll be dipping back in to mop a lot of those up. To echo what was said above, the constant fighting on nearly every street was starting to grate a little towards the end, but the use of a few extracts here and there can speed up these encounters. I'm now looking forward to picking up Lost Judgment at some point and I may even be tempted to have a dabble with the Yakuza series too.
  21. Considering that the rewards system seems to be held together with string and sticky tape, it wouldn't surprise me that they just stick to quests that they know will work.
  22. I've got this same issue. Any of the rewards that require you to just play a game are not working. I raised a ticket last Tuesday and the last response that I had from MS was to tell me that they're still looking into the problem and will get back to me when there is any update. I'm keeping a note of all of the rewards that I can't get, so I can get them to credit me with those once they've got to the bottom of it. Probably worth you doing the same as you can potentially miss out on the 1000 point monthly reward if they don't get it fixed sharpish.
  23. It seems to be recognising my achievements, but I'm getting nothing for the daily 'play a game pass game' one, nor for the weekly 'play haven' or 'play 3 different game pass games' ones.
  24. Anyone else having problems with Game Pass Rewards not recognising that you've played any games?
