    @HairyArse The points you rack up can be used to redeem MS account credit, game pass or XBL gold memberships, and other stuff. Copy/paste the url I posted yesterday (make sure you're signed in with your MS acc) and scroll down. You should see a link to see all rewards, which will take you to a page showing everything you can redeem them against.

    Typically, a £5 MS gift card is just under 6,000 points, as an example.

    Ha. Thanks. My currently-less-than-100 points isn't going to get me far then. :D

    They'll build up :)

    When I first signed up to Bing Rewards (as it was then), I switched from using Google to using Bing, as every search gives you 3 pts. With that, game pass quests, and the daily things on the rewards landing page, I managed about £50 of MS credit last year.

    So pso launches at 1 am this morning and itís been a bit of a clusterfuck. One server on out of six, that naturally filled in seconds. The cries of a million neckbeards going unanswered over on their twitter page. I tried for half an hour and managed to briefly log in, once before getting kicked out, then I went to bed. Judging from twitter itís not any better, but at least many Americans will be in bed over the next few hours or so.

    Ok apparently theyíve reset their servers and things should
    be a lot smoother now, itís a beta so these things are to be expected I guess, back to bed for now and Iíll take a look later.

    Yeah, itís not bad either. Thereís loads to do but then it has been going for a few years now. Iíll certainly grab the full release. Had a few very brief lag spikes but that could just be beta servers as well as anything else. It felt fairly stable too me in general though.

    Just a quick heads-up - the Kingdom Hearts are up on the NZ Xbox store now, so will presumably be rolling out to other regions in the next 12-24 hours.

    For extortionate prices.

    Also KH1.5 is still rubbish.

    Just to confirm on this point, Phantasy Star Online is coming to Xbox One? Not any of the sequels I don't like, but the original PSO? It's in my top 3 games of all time so the joy it'd bring me if that is the case is almost immeasurable! I know it's not unusual to re-master the older game when you're bringing out the new one so it seems plausible, but I'm trying not to get my hopes up.

    No, Chief means PSO2, so hopefully your hopes weren't raised.

    :( Honestly really needed some good news today. I was hoping that'd be it. Ah well, guess this really is the worst timeline.

    All the emulated severs for dreamcast version seem to be populated again.

    March GwG

    Batman and Shantae: Half-Genie Hero are your Xbox One offerings for the month, with The Enemy Within available from March 1st. Shantae, which recently left the list of Xbox Game Pass games, will be available for no additional cost from March 16th.

    On the backward-compatible Xbox 360 side, the Xbox marketing department is making the most of the Sonic movie hype by chucking Sonic Generations at us. We'll get that one on March 16th Ė before then, we'll get some gothic action horror with Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.

    Decent titles

    I liked Lords of Shadow more than I expected, so maybe I'll be giving LOS2 a look. Of course, there's still Mirror of Fate first.

    I loved lords of shadow but never got the second one. I played a demo and it put me off. I need to play the first one again though. Only finished it the once when it first came out. It's overdue really.

    And I have Yakuza 0 downloading, can't wait for that one!

    @Derblington so I've heard, but I'm willing to give it a chance and see for myself. Crappy sequels to good games are always fascinating, anyway (as long as they are free).

    Yakuza 0 is one of my games of the generation, utterly brilliant.

    I might get Nier automata for xbox despite having on ps4 at launch, MS rewards has paid for 2 games recently, had loads of points stacked up. Doom 3 xbox one port is about £2.40 this week in the sale, tempted for that price

    Reading reviews of lords of shadow 2, does sound like it was really shit the bed with this one
