You are a legend bro!
Hell yeah! \m/
Iron Crypticle is a very fun game i didnt know I had. Rouguelite with dual stick shooter. Id say 5-6hours
C8 all the way!
You've reached that stage of life, huh?

OH DEFINITELY the C8
If i had the money i would get the gt 1000
I'm a Mustang guy through and through, but that new C8 is crazy.
Never drove a C8. Love Mustangs though. But my all time fave is SRT Hellcat.
Theyre both pretty evwnly matched around a track which issurprising given the Shelby'snearly 250 hp advantage
As for reaching "that stage"if yu mean midlife crisis nah Ive always driven sportd cars and motorcycles since I was 20.
If you mean financially yeah, a 85-90k car is within reach now.
I just got a challenger hellcat and love that, had my eye on a gt500 but the markups were insane in Texas
That horsepower on the c8 is weak, thought it would be more. Haven’t heard of that style till you mentioned it.
Yeah it's weird that it's so fast wit only 495hp. It's beaten a 500 and a dodge demon from a dig at the strip bc of traction.
But rolling race it loses every time bc 500 and demon/hellcat have more top end
Ill prob track it but on a propr track not at the strip. And the vette makesmore sense as a daily driver
Besides the vette is only in its first iteration. I expect a huge power bump if they super or turbo charge it for the ZR1 version
Vette isa weird mix. Not as good on track as aporsche det understeer (for now), not as good in a straight line as 500/HC due to top end fade
But for a sweet middle-ground cruiser that can be fun if not perfect on a twisty track it cant b beat for the price point (without insane markup which will go away)
Yeah makes sense, probably lighter than the others which helps it initially. Looks nice and I am sure will like it
I need to take mine to the track sometime and take it out of eco mode. It still performs great in it, but that power!!!
Yeah anyone buying a hellcat/demon/500 and NOT tracking it is wasting $$ for the looks/status symbol imo
700+ hp cars need to be tracked. I had considered the Shelby 350 for that lovely manual tranny but its nearly as bad as the 500 on fuel despite way less power
That shelby 500 is sexy AF though. Prob the last true muscle car america will make.
Yeah it is, they had a lime green one at my ford dealer. Hated the color but loved the style. My hellcat gets a little better gas mileage and has a fifth seat
In the back, which is nice to take my kids out driving.
What’s the actual point of that...

The point is if someone in HongKong says anything aginst the PRC thwy can be banned. Even if it merely "damages the honor or interests" of the PRC.
Theres the direct link to he PSN legaldoc. Search "PRC" on it andit takes you directly to the section cesnoring anyone with a "mainland china" location.
Although HK has historically not been considered a partof "mainland China",the CCPs encroachment into HK in recent years is undeniable.
Wouldnt be at all surprised if this clause leads to the arrest of 'dissidents' in HK if they make the mistake of disparaging CCP/PRC over PSN.
I'm obviously not an expert. It doesnt specifically mention HK in the ToSparagraph and instead says mainland china,but the ToS itself is for users in HK (screenshot in
that persons tweet shows this). At the least if a mainland resident visits HK n uses PSN in any way that violates ToS, they could face retaliation as a mainland resident
Sad that Sony would support that. They deserve freedom of speech.
Sadly freedom of speech has never been on the table at least in mainland but even HK to a point
whats really insidious aboutthis is the other broad language like "heresy, damaging the honor of PRC,etc". Thats a broad f'n brush.
This game was honestly so charming and adorable. Such a fun completion

Why you cancelling the preorder?
I have a 2nd preorder only need 1. Made 2 in case any friends here or local wanted on and couldnt get an order in b4 all the bots.
3 other comments
And as a "just in case" if my bestbuy order got reversed (theyve been known to). But my BB order looks good.
So unless someone in central/south TX wants it im gonna cancel the 2nd.
Haven't got any news on my best buy pre order so I hope the same. Texas best buy here as well
Good game. One of the better Ratalaika ones
Basically a short metroidvania. 2-3 hours without a guide
Me too ... glad i 'waited' lol
Great game! Definitely going to be going back to it!

I put my goal to finish the Witcher 3 this year but when I saw they were going to enhance it for Series X I decided to wait. It is already a beautiful game but with that
hardware it will be even better
Might be time to grab GOTY next time it's on sale... Stack that mother. Not that I've gotten anywhere in the original release, mind.
no way ill stack it. I have GOTY. Is that version gettng enhanced or just a new release version?
I’ve only just hit 40 got a bit to go yet congrat thou 👍
Companies might as well just sell achievements at this point...
Lol right, that's pretty much what they are doing. These are the flash games of early 2000s on a shiny new platform.
Eh, as long as they stay in the 2-3$ range they can have stupid easy achievements.7 is pushing it ACA NEOGEO
It does make me miss the arcade games a bit... If these were all 200-500G games it maybe wouldn't be so rampant.
Totally agree, go back to 400g each
If people go back to judging tags on the quality of games played rather than GS, it’d stop.
Either masks work or they dont. I they do, allowing folks to take them off in a tin can with recirculated air "while eating" defeats the purpose.
It was a piecemeal protest. 🤣

I'm sorry how does this prove that wearing a mask is 'absurd'?
Because if you can take it off at ANY point while in the close confines and recirculted air of a plane with their blessing (to eat or drink), then the rule for wearing it
is pointless. If I am an asymptmatic carrier, and IF the mask stops it, alowing me to take it off to eat/drink defeats the purpose of the rule.
You either believe in masks' efficacy or you dont. If you do,these arbitrary rules like wearing it until sitting at your table in an eatery are just pointless.
And now they're saying its aerisolized... if that's true than all bets are off and wearing flimsy cotton homemade masks indoors is as useless as our elected officials.
Yeah, this is idiotic and selfish and I’m sorry that you’ve somehow convinced yourself this is wise or ‘sticking it to man’. I hope you can be more selfless in the future
Pointing out the absurdity of arbitrary rules is not the same thing as saying masks themselves are pointless.
But if it is in fact aerisolized then hey very well my be. But I have always railed against rules rhat lack any sense of coherence.
The point was they should either require masks or not require them. But requiring them then allowing for periods of removal to eat is silly and self defeating.
And I do plenty of selfless things. Like caring for chemo patients and givin away games and gaming stuff to folks here and elsewere. Sorry if you cant seewhere
I'm coming from with this issue.
Hmm, well clearly we see this differently, but my understanding is that masks aren't a "will absolutely stop it" and more of a "will help". Ie - wearing part of the time
is better than not wearing one at all, in which case it seems to me that rules that encourage or force people to wear them as often as reasonably convenient is a good
compromise to help curb the spread.
As for the aerisolized, absolutely, but we don't yet know if that's the case, so shouldn't we act on the best information we have now rather than throw our hands up and
be like "whelp we're screwed might as well do what we want"?
I can see that line of logic yes. But when I look at a country like Swede that never clpsed primary schools or most businesses n didnt mandate masks...
And still hasnt had a "second wave" like hard lockdown countries did (spain for instance), I have to believe we handled it wrong.
Whoa cell tower lag triple posted! I do firmly believe vaccine will be too little too late, and mask proponents constantly shout "follow the science" even tho the science
Is *far* from settled on the matter.
But i appreciate your reply and thoughts :)
I don't think it's fair to say Sweden is a model example, ~100k cases with a population of ~10m. By comparison Canada has ~37m people & ~180k cases & has imposed various
OTOH at this point New Zealand has virtually eliminated the virus & did have aggressive measures early on & suggests masking to prevent resurgence: https://bit.ly/34HIGHC
I do agree that there isn't a great deal of good science proving the efficacy of masks, that will take time.
I also fully agree that the US has handled the pandemic very poorly (the numbers certainly reflect that).
I think when its all said and done we will see that Sweden was right. Hard lockdown countries just kicked the can down the road. Eventually most if not all countries will
Have had about the same #s of cases per capita. The virus is in the world population and isnt going anywhere. Even IF a reasonably effective vaccine arrives.
It will become much like the flu where it circulates in and through various populations worldwide thanks to global travel.
Locking down until a vaccine arrives was never a viable option. Scandinavian countries that had severe lockdowns and "eliminated" it will see resurgence due to tourists.
But... I hope I'm wrong.
would be interesting.
Also just thought about the fact that I put up 263k gamerscore in 1 year give or take (since Sep 2019). Hopefully I can knock out the next 149k n retire by next fall.
When u stay retire u mean quite Xbox or just stop ach hunting and if so why? 👍🏼
Why would you retire?
Once I hit 1mil exactly with 100% this tag will be retired so that I dont reawaken the beast.
I'll still game on my korbekgaming tag and post on TA on this tag. But this tag will stay at 1 and 6 zeros.
And with how much MORE meaningless the score has become, I see no point in going beyond that milestone.
That's why I mostly just play what I want to and complete them. I don't always go after what's quick and easy. I play what I like. I don't go for Gamerscore.
What happens if 1million 100% and a Dlc drops cheevs?
It will with neverwinter
Then set it to incl. owned dlc :)
He said before that he’s done with that game after 1 million
I’m just promising to never again play “achievement games” after I eventually get 1 million, but I will always try and complete what I play.
I’ll just continue doing what I’m doing. If my gs improves as my completion % does, so be it.
However, I think life will defo have one of (if not the) most impressive tag on Xbox once done.
Celtic force account will always be more impressive, same ratio and completion % as life but he had 2 million gamerscore
Life has more impressive completions in my opinion
Yeah it’s a clever marketing idea from MS. Must be making loads of extra cash
My achievement hunting has slowed down a bit and I'm happy about that. I've started playing more games on Steam and such and love just enjoying games again.
@mystics - I was looking at what games were completed, not just pure stats.
Its all about perspective. While some of my games are "harder" truly think difficlty is merely a measure of time to completion 99% of the time
I think anyone can complete any game if they put the time in. So whether its a 300hr grind lik star ocean or 300 hours of practice to 1k a "hard" game, to me its the same
So from tht standpoint I agree that Celtic will always stand as the OG. And yes I'm quitting Neverwinter once I hit 1mil so my tag wont remain 100% permanently
As long as it's 100% 1mil/1mil when I get there, I don care about DLC after that (which will most likely ONLY be NW as I'm not playing DLC-risk games from now to 1mil).
Beautiful game marred by achievement tracking issues. Still enjoyed it though.
Got hard mode to pop rebooting and restarting a game in hard mode a few times. Now offering wont pop
Had to reboo game a few times to get offering to pop. I ejoyed the game until thse ach issues. Now its just annoying me.
I'm extremely surprised at how good this game is.
Wow. Unexpected. Is it as difficult as the originals?

It’s called “It’s About Time” because it’s about time it finally came out and the game is about time. Good one! Haven’t played it yet.
Harder than the originals, yes.
I've read mixed reviews about the controls feeling floaty and not very responsive? How have you found them?
Yeah this game is stupidly difficult! But fantastic none the less
I doubt that criticism is from people who played the Crash trilogy. I think it feels just like the originals. Responsive enough for sure.
Nicely done. Is it as mediocre as people say it is?
I don't think so. I was very hesitant to start it because of all the middling-to-negative reviews, but I ended enjoying it a lot.
If Fallout 4's gameplay mechanics appealed, and you like scavenging/crafting, it's definitely worth it. The storyline is weak, but the open world itself is great.
It really goes to whoever has enough money in they pocket
I guess im confused bc on Xbox.com it says is whoever has the most in each category for the ENTIRE GENERATION. Which would for example be Smrnov in Canada I imagine.

If its JUST during the contest period xbox.com is misleading and anyone who hasnt played the 300+ 1hr completions couled easily take it. Or create a new tag unless it has
to be a preexisting one.
Its not really meant for this community; its to try and get more people into this community. Alot of us (like myself) spend more money once we are hooked onto achievement
Plus the people who win I'm sure already had early access to preorder, and will probably do a 'Give away' creating even more brand ad
I really think they should have recognized highest per state and those with 1 mil
Life, there are multiple categories - achievements and gs this generation are decided sure. There are also seperate ones for 1st October til 20th, that is open for anyone
So who knows who will win them.
I'm definitely out of the running! I just started about 10 months ago, nothing compared to 7 years runners. I signed up anyways, maybe I'll win 12-month pass.
Ya there's definitely a race to who can get the most achievements and also most GS in 19 days. 2 winners alone for each country in it
someone who hasnt done all the 1hr 1ks coyld easily do 200k gs in 20 days. maybe 300k
def not a comp for TA crowd lol
Thats why I think its a joke. So far an alt account is in 1st in both categories.
They shouldve restricted it to only accounts 5+ years old or something. Even 7+ years so they existed when Xbox One launched.
My only opinion on the matter is how tf you award a HOF title to someone in a contest format? It should be an honour, no? There should be specific criteria that fits the
...mould of an HOF inductee! As well as categories! Absolutely SMRNOV and Stallion83 should be in there as the first inducted but many more should be as well. Content ...
...creators and influencers should have that category specific as well. I think a 2 week competition to see who gets a HOF induction is ridiculous and adds as much value
...to the awards as the easy achievements people are going to use during that time frame to get a HOF spot. Straight up! You should earn a spot that has value! Congrats..
...to Stal and SMRNOV for winning the award and to all the content creators and influencers that help make the Xbox community a great one! Just my opinion.
Agreed man. Couldnt have said it better.
The account winning in the U.K. (and doubling second place’s score) is most defo not alt account lol. Over a million GS and he did 30k yesterday.
I remember thinking my 60k was pretty good in july... Until I saw someone dropped 187k that same month.
Looks like the person with the most achieves today is a fresh account 6 months old.
Celtic force. Always remembered never forgotten 😞
Celtic was def top notch. And yeah re: the UK, Pigimus PM'd me yesterday. Also a solid chap.
It is what is with the contest. Even if I started a fresh tag I wouldnt have the time to drop 200-300k in 3 weeks. Far too busy. Ive got my preorder.
Maybe Rich could get MSto give me an honorable mention for the TMCC walkthrough (kidding obv)
Celtic Force = HOF
Its such a shame he had to die. 2 million gs with almost 100% completion.
adding this to my list of games to do. Easy enough?
Very. 2hrs, reasonably fun for bein simple.
Easy difficulty, choose short campaign from main menu.
Oh if u see this, put all upgrade points into Str and End as you go unless u die and want to use a point on a life.
Special abilities areso infrequent I was just doin a stick and move strategy wth the Y attack for 95% of the game. Didnt need speed or other stuff
Not a high scoring month by any means.
Nice TA ratio though.
MAka ONly plaYS EaZzy gEmes 😉
How do you get this monthly update to show in your feed? Thanks!
Keep it up maka!
I thought things couldn't get worse, but not Ratalaika and Eastasiasoft are putting out games together.

I still haven’t played a neogeo game, but shamelessly play these games.
Yeah I think I am going to permanently retire. There is not much keeping me going anymore. Just about all my old original hardcore friends have given it up.
I think I am still going to go after achievements but I am sick of getting gamer score for the sake of getting score. There are too many easy games out now.
There are what three or four developers including Ratalaika putting out at least one easy game a week? Meaning you have to buy these games every week to stay competitive?
^ aren’t these games bad for most competitions on here because of the low TA ratio/score?
So it depends on what you really care about. I started out with a goal to be 100% and just amass as much score as possible over the years. That is what I did.
Just there are too many easy games out now for me to keep wanting to inflate my score.
I agree with Fox, I want to stay at the top of the leaderboards but it really, really sucks to have to pay for these shitty, piss-easy games every week to do it.
Yep games that they have put no thought or care into and are only marketing for the achievements. The worst I had to do in the past was grind a game or play a kids game.
Which after you got the grind out of the way a lot of those games were at least decent. So were a lot of the kids games.
