  1. No. He wouldn't dare. Just walking away after I put him on top of it.
  2. Thanks to @HarryBizzle for the Currys code. I'm now a member of this exclusive club.
  3. Yep. I've tried reinstalling it and everything.
  4. Anyone else unable to start the rewards app on their Xbox?
  5. I was on furlough last year, and told by the business owners that the plan was to bring me back to work part time when the furlough scheme ended - until things picked up. As a big PS4 gamer last gen, and someone who was very disappointed in the Xbox One that I had, my initial plan had been to preorder a PS5 and maybe get a Series S later on. I thought it best to put these plans on hold as it may be more prudent to hang on to my savings. When it looked like the government were going to announce an extension to furlough and I was told that I would remain on it for the foreseeable, I thought "what the hell". I was bored to tears at home, so I would try and get one of the new consoles to entertain myself. By that point, I'd missed the preorder windows for both consoles, but luckily I managed to bag a Series S on launch. I justified it to myself as the cheapest next gen option and thought that I could always sell it on if things didn't look to be getting back to normal at work. During the last year, I'd been earning loads of Microsoft Reward points, so have been using them on a Gamepass Ultimate subscription. I've been really impressed by Gamepass and by the Series S as a machine. The value for money from both almost makes me feel that I'm taking advantage of Microsoft, and at some point they're going to realise and take it all back. I've been so impressed by the whole thing that I'm considering an upgrade to a Series X further down the line. My initial FOMO regarding the PS5 has now subsided and the £70 price point of the games has somewhat tempered my enthusiasm towards getting one - certainly in the short term. TLDR : I'm really happy with my Series S.
  6. Yes. Just swap your reward points for credit. But be aware that the credit expires after 90 days.
  7. I ordered the new headset from them at the start of the month. After a few days I spoke to someone via the online chat function who told me that I'd been allocated a headset from the next batch which would be a further week. At no point did it say this when I ordered it. I saw the same "1-2 days delivery" as you. The money was allocated from my account immediately, but was pulled back by the bank after a week, so I had to authorise the payment again. A bit of a shit show, but I got the headset eventually.
  8. Especially at the new Sony endorsed RRP of £70.
  9. Has progress on this initiative halted? I thought we might be seeing a few games per week getting updated. But there's been nothing for a month now.
  10. @rgraves mentioned over in the Gamepass thread that they have a spare 14 day trial code available.
  11. Don't forget that you don't even have to install anything. You can always play the XCloud version.
  12. The good thing with Human Fall Flat, is that you can get the achievements a second time if you install it on PC too. I say "good thing". It's only a good thing if you're enjoying playing it and want to do it all a second time for the easy points.
  13. You can't have rinsed every achievement from every game on Game Pass, surely. I always have a couple of smaller games installed that dish out fairly simple achievements and just do one of them each day - it helps if they're enjoyable games too. Human Fall Flat is my current choice.
