Really, didn’t know that. Shame that didn’t happen but don’t they always add achievement points to the 1k that all retail games are supposed to have.

I remember getting 1000 achievement points for Bioshock and they added a 100 point achievement for not dying on the highest difficulty making my maximum not a maximum any more.

Assuming your GT is Vaderag (?) I have added you, feel free to drop me an invite if you’re on SoT.

I’ve been playing since release and really enjoy it, however it isn’t a game you can get a lot done in a ‘quick hour’ of play so can be difficult to find others for a session.

Just saw this and just finished our session, sorry! Next time could be good to have another crew mate tho!

As you say, loads to do and a hell of a steep learning curve but man it was fun. The lack of hand holding and just learning with a mate was so unique. Got a few bits of the way though a tall tale, found a message in a bottle and sold the resulting chest and did our first gold hoarder voyage.. Also accidentally started a fire fight, met a mermaid and realised that tall tales change on respawn by heading to the wrong island... All in all a blast

Since you've been playing a while, QQ, do you keep chests etc if you leave or do you need to ensure you sell etc in your session

No worries and glad you enjoyed your first session, it seems to be a bit of a marmite game.

You have to turn all chests etc in at an outpost before you leave - and that can be half the challenge! Once you leave the session everything you had resets.

Also annoyingly in a way, you can’t change ship size mid-session. So if one of your crew leave or you want to add someone it means leaving and starting a new session, and as per above everything resets.

So if you start a session with a crew of three, make sure you’re all in for the long haul.

So... Very odd. I've had Hitman 2 sitting in my games list for ages and I thought it was because they gave you like a free version to just import hitman 1 stuff into..
Seems somehow I have the full have but no idea how
Anyone know if it was gwg or similar at some point in the past,?

Has anyone else ever signed into their Live account on your console?

My friend signed into mine once and over the next few months I noticed more and more games were being added to my library (full paid for games). Turns out it had set my Xbox as his home Xbox for some reason, and I was seeing games he had subsequently bought but I could play because of this.

Have you tried playing it ?
Got as far as an actual level ?

Reason I ask is I had it showing but had, at time, only ever purchased Hitman 1
It loaded fine, all menus etc, but when tried to actually play it then took to store to buy the levels.

I ended up buying it dead cheap in sales not too long after. About a tenner I think

Yeah, I played the first mission (nightfall?) And then it suggested I try the training missions (which tbh I've played before, so no idea why it doesn't remember).

Ah. Mission 2 suggesting I buy... So seems you get training and first mission for free (or did at some point!)

Still, nice evenings gaming

Is there an easy way of finding out which games you (a) own digitally and (b) sorting by achievements obtained ?

I’ve been digital for years now, since Xbox one launched plus what games with gold and various sales have given away

I’d just like to see what’s in my library that I may not really have played much

I started a spreadsheet of all Xbox games I had, whether digital or physical if I still had disc or sold. Could I uninstall if sold/done

Found a few games both in shelves and bought digitally and not installed (had to get those off emails and Microsoft purchase account, could not find it via the Xbox)

Am now up to date!

If you go into my games and apps it lists all your games + those with gold / game pass in separate sections
It's not perfect as includes betas / demos / things like hitman above, but not bad

Really enjoying wasteland 3, but it crashes a lot still. Maybe not work on the expansions until the game is running without crashing and quest glitches.

The dialogue is so much better than the **** that is in fallout 4 and 76. Hopefully with MS backing them wasteland 4 will the best game yet in the series. Really didn't like wasteland 2 as the UI didn't work with controller and it was really old school RPG

I just started playing this the other night, same thing happened. I definitely had bought the super duper Hitman 2 that includes all the Hitman 1 stuff so was surprised when it asked me to buy them from the store. I went to manage game and there they were ready to install. I just ticked them all and installed them. Might be the same for you.

Nice one. Had an inkling it would hit GamePass swiftly, hence why I didn’t purchase.

Just a shame I didn’t have the same instinct when I bought Dirt 5!

I sadly fell for the “it’s a modern day x-wing” hype

It’s not
I didn’t like it at all
Seemed to have removed all that was simple and fun from the original games
Neither single player or multiplayer gripped me in anyway
