  1. Yup, did a sweepstake, what a dick I am !!!
  2. Has anyone else noticed that their points tally is a little odd this month?? I keep a daily tally of mine with me noting them down on the back of a notepad at my desk. Seeing them add up over time helps keep me motivated to go for them and it also acts as a nice reminder too. So, early on this month I was pretty surprised at how quickly they were adding up, with me having had two very big days (2635 points and 2970 points!) giving me over 7000 points in the first 7 days!?! I had been getting my achieve more earn more points, I'd done all my daily searches and collected all the little 5 points here and there bits and I'd also collected the October 1000 and the Halloween 150. I'd also got a good few of the monthly / weekly quests too, but 7500 something points in 7 days was clearly a bit wrong. Anyway it all seemed to settle down and I just figured it was one of those things / a glitch and left it at that........till today. Yup today something else a little odd happened this morning as when I wrote down todays total and then deducted yesterdays from it to note how many points I'd got yesterday........I'd got -8!! Yup this morning my points total is actually 8 less than yesterday and yet yesterday I got all my dailies, I got 50 for an achievement, I played a Gamepass game and logged into the Gamepass app, oh and from memory watched a YT video and two games ones for 5pts a piece too!! Pretty darn odd eh !!!
  3. Anyone know where I can buy a mini chrome Electrolux badge… https://stickybunny.com/products/signature-edition-fridge-xbox-series-x-skin
  4. Yeah very easy. Go into sandbox mode, make sure you’ve got auto walk (in the accessibility settings) on, set your character off walking into the wilderness (across a big lake or similar works well) and jobs a good ‘un. That said I played a bit of it the first time it featured in the quests thingy and rather enjoyed it so perhaps give that a bash first .
  5. Xbox Weekly Treasure is up. Might be best to grab it ASAP, as whilst I'm sure it used to hang around for a few days it seems to just be up for a short time now and then disappears. In other news when I booted my Xbox up popped a me a message saying I could redeem a $5 (yes dollar, thought that was odd as I'm in the UK) gift card. Went into my messages and clicked on a message saying the same whereby it took my to the rewards app logo before saying "Oooops, something's gone wrong" then dropping me into the app and there's now no sign anywhere of anything relating to it. Nice one !!
  6. Yeah, just the once, think it was for a big (12TB) HDD iirr.
  7. Can someone check and see if they're able to save and send clips to one of their mates? It's not working for myself and friend of mine that have been playing Splitgate this aft and we're unsure if it's just an issue for us or something wider spread.
  8. There’s a v quick way to get 50pts that’s popped up on the rewards app tonight: “F1 2021 Play the free trial to earn (50) points” Worried about the rather large 81.37GB download? Don’t be, as soon as I set it going it gave me the points, hurrah .
  9. There's a 150pts Halloween punch card that's appeared today that probably takes about 30s to complete... .
  10. I’m avoiding most media / playing the insider thingy as I’m happy to wait till launch but by heck does it look (and sound, it’s v solid!) great!!
  11. It's a very good watch!! Brannon (starting 5:55) gives details of which areas they can improve accessibility for gamers (some of which will then also be listed / searchable on the store with publishers also able to link directly to further details) and Caitlin (at 20:10) details as to how they're going to present them to / help developers get them into their games, provide them with good working examples and also mentions an accessibility validation process that's based on their new (and now more prominent) guidelines. Nice. The third part of the jigsaw (one which is a waaaay bigger one than I'd ever realised!!) is that for game players, there's a new Xbox Accessibility Insider League (joinable from the insiders hub) upon which players can give accessibility related feedback on early builds of games, OS, services, fill out surveys etc. TLDR (or watch). They're clearly very serious about making big improvements to the accessibility of the games on their platform and seem to be going at it from all angles. With me now having a better understanding of the problems that some people face, I'll certainly not be quite so quick to moan about font sizes (for now!) as there are some much bigger problems that need sorting and it really looks like they're keen to address them. Good stuff IMO . Oh and there's a lady from 343 who gives details of their planning and implementation of accessibility for Halo Infinite. Thorough would be an understatement!
  12. I'm sure that there must be a whole load of criteria that has to be met to get games passed by MS (achievements being one that springs to mind). Why they don't add sensible txt sizes being one of them is beyond me. Fingers crossed that the labels that you mention do just that as there are far too many games that come out with poor accessibility, The Ascent being the latest one that I came across.
  13. Here you go: https://www.thexboxhub.com/unsighted-review/ Looks / sounds great to me .
  14. Nice month IMO. Aero looks pretty nice / was something I’d never seen before ans I’m another one that’s not played CV since my days of Dreamcast and I didn’t finish it back then! I have still got my DC and a copy of CV up in the loft which has probably stopped me re buying it on 360 but in truth I probably would never have got round to booting up the DC again so happy days on now getting on my Series X for nothing .
  15. Ah yes, of course! What a spanner I am, I spent half of last week reading up on it !!
