    Mortal Kombat will not accept easy fatalities you must use the correct input to get it to work.
    I did it with Liu Kang's Splitter: Back, Forward, Down, Up (Close range).

    Microsoft have been made aware of the gears and ori punch card issue so hopefully it will get fix as it's 750 points.

    Having Plague Tale be one of the game pass quest games seems a little tone deaf...

    Second thing to try if someone still has the quest available but doesn’t want to start the game.
    With Lego you could collect the bricks while on a second account as long as you were signed in to your main, and the tracker moved. Does that work for this perhaps too?

    Can the Plague Tale challenge be done without unlocking any achievements? I intend to play it but not yet and would rather unlock the full 1000G in the same month. Call me kooky.
    Yes. Start the game. When you get to your house, you might hear the stable hand tell you there are practice targets behind the stable. There is a missable achievement for practicing and hitting six. Skip this. Go to the left and proceed with the story. Soon, you will learn how to throw stones. You are only expected to throw one at a time, but you can throw all three you pick up. Go forward and find another three. Throw them and you'll get the game pass quest without unlocking an achievement.

    Alternatively, after throwing the first three, you can press cn_start and, from the menu there, reload the checkpoint. You will replay the segment where you threw the stones. The previous stones count towards the quest as do the new ones you throw.

    Except for the missable achievement, the next achievement does not come until after another 10-15 minutes of game play along a very linear path. If the game prompts you to run, do not, and you will not unlock that achievement.

    The daily "play Game Pass Game" isn't working today, for some reason, for me, at least. I've tried several Game Pass Games, and it's not "questing" to completion.

    Same here. I got credit for the five rocks thrown in A Plague Tale: Innocence as well as credit for unlocking a Game Pass game achievement. So, XBox knows I've played one of the Game Pass games. Still, when I check on the quests, I get, "Play any Game Pass game - 0/1." I've tried other Game Pass games and did a power cycle on my X1. Nothing worked.

    Same here. Think the daily "play Game Pass Game" didn't trigger for me earlier in the week either. Wasn't that bothered by it, so didn't do any additional troubleshooting.

    It finally worked, late last night. I also suddenly got a deluge of Achiements that I think I got earlier in the Week, but didn't show up. On the one I looked at, it said it "unlocked" on March 17, so, shrugs.

    Daily Game Pass acting up for me again today. Don't understand how something that tracked just fine last month can be broken this month when nothing changed about its unlock just its total points. Get it together MS

    Same here, and add to that the Daily Quests don't show up until 2PM ET. Been trying every hour all day since and it won't pop, now 11PM ET (USA). Game Pass Mobile popped right away though. Just doesn't make sense one works while the other won't, very bad coding - my dog could do better.

    Nothing yesterday or today for me, only the app one.
    With that I have enough days to get to 45 so it’s fine but doesn’t leave leeway.
    And will the new weekly later track for playing 5 different games as it’s the same thing..

    I'm also having problems with the daily quest - using mobile app worked fine and I got the Plague Tale one, but the quest for playing a game pass game refuses to pop. Hopefully they get that fixed or credit us for the monthly!

    I'm still having trouble with the daily quest, "Play any Game Pass game." In spite of having gotten several weekly quests yesterday & today for unlocking achievements etc. in Game Pass games I still showed "Play any Game Pass game - 0/1" for the daily quest.

    This morning, I got credit for playing a Game Pass game yesterday. Today, I played What Remains of Edith Finch. I did not get the "Play any Game Pass game" quest for playing it today. I loaded up a couple more just to be sure. But, in Game Pass games, I still showed "Play any Game Pass game - 0/1" for the daily quest. Moreover, the counter for the number of game pass games played did not advance. Edith Finch should have been the 7th Game Pass game played this month, but the counter is stuck on 6.
