Much Ado About Nothing (Removing Zero-Point Stuff on the One)
I'm going to do something different with my blog today: a little community service.

I rolled out of bed to the news that Alpha Ring Xbox Insiders Can Now Remove 0 Gamerscore Games from Their Profiles. This is a feature that many people have asked for, and I'm in a unique position to kick the tires: I'm on the Alpha Ring, I have an unkempt Microsoft profile littered with 0-point detritus on multiple platforms, and I don't mind at all what happens to that mess on the XBox side in order to test the limits of this new feature (just so long as I'm not starting any uncompletable games).

So without further ado, here's what I've tried, what is and isn't on my Xbox One list already and how it all gets reported. If you have any questions about how this feature works or want me to test something out for you, post it in the comments here and I'll report back. At least for as long as this blog is up, so maybe for the next couple weeks or so. :-)

  • What's On the List
Considering this feature to remove hide zero-point games is all about curating your XBox List o' Stuff, it's worth mentioning what actually is on the list to begin with (and what isn't, but that's next). Most platforms seem to be supported, as well as alternate-region titles. Here are some specific examples from my list, as well as where I played them:

1. Typical Console Titles - The Main Stuff You'd Expect
Maize (XBox One, played on Xbox One)
Assassin's Creed Liberation HD (XBox 360 non-BC, played on Xbox 360)
Assassin's Creed Rogue (XBox 360 BC, played on Xbox 360)

2. Alternate-Region Console Titles
Grand Theft Auto V (JP) (XBox One JP - digital, played on XBox One)
Shiei no Sona-Nyl Refrain: What a Beautiful Memories (XBox 360 JP - disc, played on NTSC-JP 360)

3. PC Titles
ABZÛ (Win 10) (Windows 10, played on Win 10 laptop)
Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY (PC) (GFWL, played on Win 10 laptop)

4. Games I Cannot Help You Play Because I No Longer Have Access to Them
A.k.a. Dead Rising 2: Case West (KR). I debated even mentioning this one considering it's highly sought after and I got swamped with PMs when I played it. I'm not able to help anyone else to play it (so please don't ask). However, it's a special case that checks a whole lot of boxes: this is an alt-region digital game that is BC, but was removed from the store a long time ago. I played it on XBox One after an account that owned it successfully downloaded and installed it on the One (despite the game being delisted). Anyway, it shows up on my achievement list on the One as a completed game.

  • What's Not On the List

1. Some Windows Phone Titles
I'd hazard to say most WP titles are missing, but for some reason I see Assassin's Creed Pirates (WP) and I know that's the WP version, because I haven't done the PC stack. I also have Hitman GO (WP) for both WP and Windows.

2. Obscure Platforms
Wordament Snap Attack (Win 8) is on the list. Wordament Snap Attack (WP), Wordament Snap Attack (Android) and Wordament Snap Attack (iOS) are not.

3. Apps
As much as I'm still irritated about the unannounced defeaturing of Netflix achievements while I was working on them, that title is nowhere to be seen in my XBox list. Nor is any other app. And thankfully app achievements can be easily filtered here at TA as well.

  • Stuff I've Tried Hiding (And How it Got There)
I have a bonanza of zero-point things on my card. Since each one is somewhat unique, I'll list these out by title rather than try to categorize them too heavily. But I'll aim to keep the list short and representative of zero-point stuff other people might want to remove.

1. The 360 Mistake: Doritos Crash Course 2
I'm sure I probably did click on this and start it up at some point, and I'm sure I didn't mean for that to happen. This title is full of discontinued achievements; I have no intention of ever actually playing it or having it on my card. But since TA doesn't count it, it doesn't bother me.

This title was on my list on both the One and on the 360. It's the first thing I "hid" on the One. Afterward, I logged onto a non-preview X1 and Crash Course 2 is not showing up there anymore. However, it was still listed on 360. So I deleted my game history there to see what would happen.

After logging out and back in on the One, Crash Course is still visible under hidden titles. So for those who won't be satisfied with anything less than total eradication of all traces of the zero-point stuff, there's no "empty the trash" option apparently. Only "sweep it under the rug."

2. The X1 Game I Don't Own: Cuphead
I'd really love to play this. I almost certainly will pick it up at some point and give it a go. But I'm not in the mood for a platformer right now.

A friend of mine owns this and I wanted to give it a whirl. But I was accidentally logged in with my profile (as a secondary--not even playing the game) when the game launched, so Cuphead landed on my card. I had no problem hiding it, and it's no longer visible on any X1 system.

3. The Play Now for Free Title: Titanfall 2
Several weeks ago Titanfall 2 was free to play for the weekend. I wanted to see if I could knock the whole game out without paying for it, so I started after the one nasty achievement right away:
Titanfall 2...Becomes the MasterThe ...Becomes the Master achievement in Titanfall 2 worth 53 pointsGet the top spot on the Gauntlet scoreboard

Annoyingly, I beat the target time and the achievement didn't unlock, but that didn't stop Microsoft from putting the game on my card, lol.

I bought Titanfall 2 later when it was on sale, but I'm saving it to play on Scorpio in 4k glory. So as a bonus experiment I just tried launching the game. It showed up in my list again, but I was able to re-hide it. That's about how I'd hope to see this feature work.

4. The Title I Only Launched to Finish Buying the Game: Minecraft: Story Mode - A Telltale Games Series (Win 10)
Telltale PC titles are annoying: there's no easy way to see when they're on sale, and there's no way to buy the whole game without purchasing Chapter 1 and then launching that to purchase the rest of the game. Which puts it on your list. But it can be hidden until you're ready to play.

5. The Title With No Gamerscore: Xbox LIVE Labs
Here's an odd one: a 360 title with nothing but 3 zero-point achievements. Yes, it's on the list and no, you cannot remove it. At least not when you have zero-pointers unlocked. However, it shows up as 0% in the list rather than 100%. Pedanticism Fail!

6. The Non-Title With No Achievements! Kinect Fun Labs Series
I linked the series here, because there is no game/title called "Kinect Fun Labs." At least not as far as TA is concerned. There is, however, a Kinect Fun Labs hub thingy on 360 from which you can launch various Kinect Fun Labs titles, each of which shows up independently in your achievement list.

For some dumb reason, this "Kinect Fun Labs" hub appears in your XBox One achievement list (but not on 360!), and is listed as 0/0 G with 0 achievements. At 0% completion, of course. But you can (and should, lol) hide this.

  • What's On Your List That You'd Like to Hide?
I've covered a pretty good slice of what's on my list, but I probably haven't hit everything that everyone would like to see gone. Which zero-point titles are on your XBox One list that you'd like to see gone? What makes them unique (compared to the examples I listed)? What would you like me to check for you? If you want to know if that GFWL title you started but never played shows up on the XBox App on your iOS device, I can look into that for you. :-)

Post questions in the comments, and I'll address them there. If I get some particularly interesting questions I'll update the blog with them.

I sometimes have not helped when some has needed help but that is mostly because I have felt burn out from too much online grinding.

It's weird, but colorful and fun. Reminds me of platformers like Super Mario 3 with some Metroidvania styled additions.
