    Just wanted to say I'm impressed with how hot off the press this news!

    Sadly I've finished a number of the easy ones, but there's a few on there that I've started and definitely want to finish. What better time to play them.

    Good luck landing on the solar station manually in Outer Wilds...

    To be honest though, I thoroughly enjoyed the game and highly recommend playing it anyway!

    Gonner is a very reasonable completion worth 6k TA and has a killer walkthrough ;)

    When I click to view eligble games in the app, it just takes me back to the quest page, so it makes me a little concerned it's not quite working yet? Has anyone unlocked the first part yet? lol

    It's really not that tricky. Plenty of good guides which show you the best approach.

    I guess I'll start with burying Old Man's Journey. This list isn't as bad as the last one is but I have to admit that saving up Rewards Points and Store Credit for this pretty terrible Black Friday Sale knocks my drive to strive for the whole 10,000.

    Roughly $10 (USD) in store credit.

    I disagree. The walkthrough for minit isn't that good at all. Why on Earth the writer does the speed run on play through one is beyond me. There is an actual mode you unlock that guarantees the under 25 turns achievement.

    Second this. The Scythe and Shark Fin combo make the game a breeze.

    I doubt I'll hit the full 10K, but if they are matching what we earn I'll try to at least hit 5K. Could use the extra points for the Holiday sale and get into a good place for the inevitable Christmas sale too. Besides, many of these games I planned on starting eventually so no better time than right now! Good luck everyone!

    To continue the discussion from an older thread: I firmly believe each achievement should be worth exactly 1 GS. All games would be equal this way, and the number of achievements would only be limited by the developers' laziness. They put 1 achievement in their game? Let 'em but their game would certainly be less desirable than one that has 200 of them. Why do we need those misleading thousands and millions of GS for? To impress? This is not a stock exchange.

    I guess it's not that bad, but it's still pretty tricky compared to the rest of the game (and if you aren't the most dextrous person it can be a real source of frustration!)

    Love the idea but not really a fan of the implementation. It's my own problem though, as I've already played most of these games and got most of the achievements. I think this is more focused on bringing in new players that haven't played these games.

    Its another con only select games from game pass and only games that are hard to get 10.000gs from in 10 days quests like this and the other cons buy a game that is not even in game pass should not be allowed.

    Why call them game pass quests when its only a small selection

    Thank god Tracks isn't included in that list. I'd have been so annoyed that I completed it yesterday!
    I think I worded that terribly

    Does anyone know if achievements from DLC count?

    WOW I Actually Predicted This Would be a Thing In the future. My thought was you get points by completing the randomly generated game that's assigned to you. But This isn't to far off!

    Too Bad I've done most of these

    Damn, looks like I have done a great deal of these. And in saying that also the ones I have any interest in.
