Well Inside is great but most folks will already own it by now. Symphony of the Night is a classic of course but I've owned the 369 version for over a decade. The other two are pure shit.

I've 100% completed Meet the Robinsons and it's a solid platformer.

I got a used Elite controller online from GS and was messing around with it in the accessories app to make sure everything is working.

In the vibration section I get some rumble when changing the values except on the right trigger. The other three (left trigger, right main, left main) all work. I'm leaning towards that means one of the motors is kaput? I don't know what my return window is, or if I could exchange it in store locally (it shows three of the local stores have one on hand).

Other than that it seems to be working okay, and was only missing the braided cable.

For those who converted to Game Pass Ultimate already and don't have a full 3 years, there is a nice deal that stacks with existing subscribers : Best Buy has a 3 month GPU card at 67% off for $14.99. Only one purchase per account

It doesn't stack for current Game Pass Ultimate subscribers, only those that have not converted yet. (The reviews mention this)

No, it does now. Once per Live account. Confirmed on CAG and in the official MS Rep's response below the negative review

Brand response

MicrosoftOutreachTeam

3 weeks agoHi there,

We're sorry if there was any confusion over this limited edition offer. If you already joined Xbox Game Pass Ultimate via the special $1 for one month E3 offer, you can now redeem this code for an additional three months. Please retry if you received an error message previously.

Important: This 3-month offer is for new customers only and will not stack with itself. It may be redeemed once per Microsoft account per year.

Hope that helps,
Chuck
Xbox Customer Care

^ Correct. And if you're already at your 34-to-36-month maximum, you'll have to wait up to 3 months before you can redeem it, but you should be able to redeem it without issue at that point.

Are there any deals floating around for XBox Live?

Just realized that my subscription expired last month.

No. You have access to stuff like Netflix and other streaming apps, but to play games online, you need Xbox Live.

The 14.99 worked for me. I did use the 1.00 offer earlier. My sub went from 2/2022 to 5/2022.
I don't even really use Live that much, other than the free GWG games, but if it's the same price or less than GamePass per month, why not.
