I didn't get The Final Station last year, was that region specific?

Otherwise, count me in again smile

I think the phone app is a bit fussy about recognising whether you are there and qualifying you for mixpots. I watched the whole Gamescom thing one on phone and didn't get the mixpots, something about the app not thinking I was active.

Excellent. I'm definitely looking forward to watching the conference. So getting free games is a nice added bonus.

I only received Rare Replay for free last year. Never got the additional games or DLCs mentioned.

Already had The Final Station and Rare Replay, but glad I got No Time To Explain. Really glad they're doing this again because who can say no to free stuff?

That seems a bit odd since it was all given at the same time as a bundle (at least mine was -- it all appeared in my download queue at the same time). Did you contact Mixer/Microsoft support when it happened? I'm sure they would have been able to help out.

They keep giving me copies of Rare Replay. I have it physical and digital now and I really hope they don't try to give it to me again lol


Also I recall all the DLC being useless to me.

I hope for a better loot pull this year.

There were some restrictions. Maybe region was one of them, and I think something had an age restriction.

Can't remember any of the specifics, but I'm sure it was posted at some point last year.
Just a guy playing games.

Just to confirm, can I watch this on my Xbox One, with my Xbox Account, without creating a mixer account? It starts June 12th right? I missed out on this last year, so would like to take part this year. I'm extremely tired right now and the wording looks a bit confusing, saying something about linking accounts.
Idk how it works on console, but when you go to mixer and attempt to log in from a PC, it gives you the option to log in with a microsoft account. You just need to log in with the email and password of your gamertag and watch while that account is logged in. So I'd assume it would recognize you being logged in if you're watching it on your gamertag, on your Xbox, but I'm not 100% sure.

Linking your account is mentioned because Mixer has options to log in other ways besides a Microsoft account (Facebook, Twitter, Discord, things like that). Users who log in with these options need to make sure their account is linked, otherwise Mixer has no way of knowing who they are on Xbox.

But yes, if you log in on your Xbox console and watch Mixer through the app, then you are automatically logged in on your Xbox account and don't need to worry about any of that jazz. And you do have a Mixer account technically, just one that Microsoft automatically creates for you with your Xbox info.

Give stuff away on mixer is stupid since Microsoft won't fix mixer which keeps lagging because to many people are watching
