    Has there been any update if the Game Pass for PC lists work? I would understand if they weren't included, I just haven't seen any update.

    I guess I'll start Shadow of Mordor now. No chance I finish it in 10 days, but it'll get me something, and that's better than nothing.

    Gotta jump between Shadow of Mordor and Strange Brigade, which is leaving soon. Priorities, priorities.
    I am through with the base game for Shadow of Mordor but I still need to finish many of the dlcs as well as some challenges before the 10 day quest period is over.

    Fortunately I chose not to do Strange Brigade even after I found out it was leaving. I decided to play ABZU instead from the leaving gamepass list.
    I decided not to bother too much with Strange Brigade, as at leat £15 needs to be spent on DLC to complete it. Hopefully it will be on sale soon, and will buy the bundle, which was £21 when on sale last in the Spring sale, it may be less next sale.

    It ís probs not on sale right now for BF as the publishers of the game hope people buy it with the game pass discount.

    I was trying to get through Below and Kingdom Two Crowns but found them annoying with the restrictive time left, so may buy them too at one point, and play them with no time restraints.

    I am just mainly focussing on these games for 10000. Completed Minit and old mans journey. Yooka laylee is one game I have been wanting to play. I bought game on disc but not played it yet, but if I can play it through before it leaves game pass then can resell it sealed.

    Also trying to squeeze in last couple of seasons of Person of Interest which leaves Amazon Prime soon, end of month I think.

    All these things are becoming well overwhelming, but playing through the games more now. My Xbox ONE gamerscore has now overtaken my 360 gamerscore, even though I have bought way more 360 games.

    I am able to see the list of games in the game pass app on my ipad, but the xbox one still not working. The list of games in the mobile app match this article.

    I played Mutant Year Zero on PC unlocked acahievment for 10 gamerscore and then got 10 extra rewards points, looks like it works.

    The best way to see if it works is get the 500 to begin with, claim the points then when you unlock an achievement it adds to the rewards points almost insantly, although some may take time.

    The Xbox 360 games should work, but probably takes a while to see.

    I cancelled my Amazon Prime sub for now because I was spending too much time on my Xbox One X especially with Gamepass. I can always go back to Amazon Prime for a month to binge watch their TV exclusive shows.

    I can't even get to my backlog for the most part because of Gamepass Ultimate which I prioritized because of the limited duration of games on that sub. It is such a good deal. I also found myself playing more games now on my Xbox One X than I used to because I know the games on Gamepass might leave the service or are part of promos like the 10,000 points in 10 day MS Reward quest.

    And same as you because of Gamepass and Games with Gold, the gamescores I get from Xbox One games I have played have now surpassed those for my Xbox 360 games and the latter included back compatible games I can play in 4K on my Xbox One X.

    I did Old Man's Journey and got the points for that but I've been playing SR3 for the last couple of days and the achievements aren't counting. It may be because I'm playing on the 360 from a physical disc but I have the complete package version so don't really want to play the game pass version.

    I thought this would be a good reason to address some of my backlog but kind of put off now.

    It seems the BC Xbox 360 games achievements are not registering for MS rewards points.

    Samurai Shodown 2 doesn't work. Just a heads up to anyone thinking of trying that one. I played on my one x and my 360, and none of them added to my rewards points.
    I dont have any factual evidence outside of word of mouth on reddit lol but to my knowledge despite sometimes having 360 games tied to a quest, they dont actually count. Only XB1 games.

    I just reached 500 points on Old Man's Journey on PC, but I don't see anything new on my Microsoft Rewards page. Is there something specific I need to do?

    Claim the points in the game pass quest, hopefully the first punch of 500 will be completed with a tick

    On the Xbox app for Microsoft Rewards, you mean? Everything I'm seeing for Xbox Game Pass Quests is telling me to use my Xbox app, which...I don't have, because I don't have an Xbox One. :/

    It should work with the game pass app for mobile. I can see it on my ipad.

    I've finished Old Mans Journey and Minit, am working on Outer Wilds now, and will start on Momodora after. Playing a bit of Jump Force in between games. Probably will have time for another game, maybe Halo Wars:DE. I've almost completed the 360 version, haven't played anything from the DLCs, and it's semi quick might as well try and squeeze it in. Unless anyone has a better suggestion? How's Gonner, Bloodstained, Neon Chrome, or Shadow Tactics?

    Luckily, before this game pass quest, I've been playing Outer Worlds for a while, going for the double stack on this one, and haven't played most of the games on the list, although I already did complete Quantum Break -.-

    Xbox 360 games are glitched for this game pass quest and are not counted towards it. Do not play them.

    Xbox play anywhere games, such as Old Mans Journey, played on either the Xbox or PC will count towards this game pass quest. These are not the games with stackable achievements.

    Can anyone confirm if playing a stackable PC game counts? I might try SuperHot on console and PC to test, if anyone else does please sound off the answer.

    I can't lie I LOVE these types of quests. Although I wish it was longer than 10 days but I get the reasoning behind it. This will be my first time doing a 10k quest and while I won't get the full 10k I'll get some points and it will allow me to try some games I maybe otherwise might not have even looked at. So keep these coming Microsoft!

    Does this mean 500G per game, or just earn a minimum 500G from any games?

    500 GS from any game. It tallies up your GS until you clear 500. For example, I hit it at 520/500 so I missed out on 20 points. Just a warning.
