  1. For anyone that hasn't heard about this deal, it ends very soon. MS announced a new service at E3 called Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. This service includes Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for PC for one monthly fee. Now, why is this a great deal? Well, currently, if you pay the $1 for one month of the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, any remaining Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass subscription you have will automatically be upgraded to Ultimate for the remainder of your subscription at no additional cost beyond that $1. So, as an example, if you have 13 months of Xbox Live Gold remaining on your account but have no Xbox Game Pass subscription and you pay the $1 for the upgrade, all 13 remaining months will be converted into Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. That means you'll get Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game for PC for the next 13 months for $1. That's a fantastic deal! Personally, my Xbox Live Gold was good until May 2020. My Xbox Game Pass was set to expire in November 2019. So upon hearing about this deal, I went and bought another year of Xbox Live Gold. Once I completed my upgrade, my account has now been upgraded to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate until May 2021. I always have Xbox Live Gold anyways, so getting Game Pass (Xbox & PC) for the next 2 years for $1 is a great buy! Even if you don't know whether or not you'd like Game Pass, paying $1 to try it out is still a great deal. You get the opportunity to play over 100 games as much as you'd like until your sub runs out. The deal is supposed to only be good during E3, so you have to act quick if you want to get in on it.

  8. I've seen a lot of lists of tips and while some are key, I thought I would do my own because even watching videos of 50 tips for RDR2, they still didn't touch on things I would have. Constantly bond with your horse - this one is discussed in many, but it is pretty key. Click in the left thumbstick about every 5 seconds as you ride around to praise your horse. This will easily increase your bond with him. Feeding him does as well. At twenty five cents a shot, hay is the best meal per bang for your buck for your horse. Wild carrots are a close second since they are free, you just have to find them. And last, don't forget to brush your horse. You will CONSTANTLY see your horse's heart turn red. That is an image of the brush. Your horse is very needy. He needs to be constantly brushed. I make it a habit that whenever I get back on my horse, to brush him before I take off. This helps keep that heart core full as well as quickly improve your bond. If it flies, it dies - killing things is the best way to earn money. Buy the varmint rifle early, and whenever you see a bird in the air, be sure to kill it. Birds are the best because they provide meat to cook, as well as flight feathers which are needed to craft improved arrows and all other manner of upgraded arrows. These arrows are mandatory for many of the challenges should you pursue them, but are also a great addition to your archery game. Birds' feathers can be sold, getting you around 50 cents each, just don't sell the "flight feathers". Killing rabbits and squirrels with the .22 will quickly give you some cash without taking up any space on your horse. Now carcasses will get you more cash at the trapper and butcher, but you have to return to them within a day or two in game or the carcass will rot and then you end up with nothing. A skin is better than nothing, but a carcass will get you more. When I know I'm about to make a trip to the trapper/butcher, then I will keep a carcass. You can store one medium carcass on your horse along with two small animals. I tend to hold onto rabbits since they are plentiful and you can store two of them. I tend to only chase perfect pelts though. You may have to kill an animal at two stars first though to learn its' anatomy, and then you can start getting 3 star perfect pelts provided the animal is healthy enough. Just be aware of that and don't kill yourself outright trying to find a perfect skin/pelt for a newly discovered animal. Try to learn the animals you encounter most and which will get you the perfect pelt. Racoons, badgers, squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits and all birds are 22. Coyotes and Foxes are your repeater. Big animals such as pig, boar, deer, elk, moose, cougar, ram and bison should be rifle. I like using a scoped rifle, but if you prefer to get in close, the Springfield or Bolt Action Rifle will do the job. I typically use the latter if the animal discovers me and I have to chase them down while on horseback. Beware of cougars - if you dismount and are hunting, but sure you have one rifle that can kill a cougar that ISN'T scoped. A cougar will close distance fast and not even dead-eye can save you. Always have a bow, or Springfield or Bolt with you, or if nothing else the sawed off shotgun in your pistol holster. You will destroy the pelt, but at least you'll live. Save often too. Remember that if you have a legendary pelt or animal on your horse and you die, it is gone. I've reloaded many games just to not lose my legendary animal. Yes, you can re-hunt it, but why bother if you save often. Also be aware that any carcass or pelt that is tied to your horse (the large ones, not the multiple medium animal pelts that look like a blanket on your horse's rump) will fall off if you crash your horse. With all horses seemingly magnetized to crash into trees, this happens often, and in my frustration I just want to hurry up, keep back on my horse and ride away. Don't forget your valuables when you crash before your getaway. Learn how to read a topography map - your minimap is a topography map. I have the benefit of military experience but many might not. So remember that a thick line on that map is showing you a cliff. Many are just thin lines. This shows you a gradual incline or decline in the elevation of the land. But if you see a thick line that looks bigger than the rest, this is showing you a cliff of some kind. Learn to read the map so you can properly navigate the county. This skill will only benefit you as the game progresses. All premium cigarettes have a card - as you play, you will discover cigarette cards lying around. You can also collect cards from premium cigarettes. You will no doubt fill up your satchel though since in the beginning you can only hold 5, and even when you get the final satchel to hold 99, you will quickly fill that up. If you care about finding everything in this game, remember to always drop one premium cigarette when you are at max to pick up that next discovered premium cigarette for the card. Hold right to open up your satchel, hit R1/RB to navigate to the next screen, and then find your cigarettes and simply hold square/X to drop one. Or you could smoke one then and there if you need some deadeye. I often found 2 or 3 premium cigarettes together though and if you do them consecutively, you don't get the benefits, not to mention losing stamina core. Just be aware. *********POSSIBLE SPOILER************ I don't think it is, BUT just to be sure - Stay off the beaten path - this game has a TON to offer those that explore, but you will never find anything if you just stick to the roads. Map your destination, set your waypoint and put those newly acquired topography skills to the test. You will very often be rewarded with a stranger encounter, some oddity like a house or corpse or even loot. Get your guns cleaned at the gunsmith - Gun oil costs over a dollar, but if you get your gun cleaned by the gunsmith in town, it will only run you a few cents. Save your gun oil for unique weapons that you use which the gunsmith will not clean, or when you are in the field for a long time and have no choice. Much cheaper to just let the smith clean it. Fishing is hard - I only just discovered the secret. You DO NOT rotate the right thumbstick as quickly as possible. You just do a smooth, circular motion with the right thumbstick while pulling down on the left thumbstick, let go, pull down, over and over until the fish is in. You make the most progress pulling the fish in with that downward motion and when the fish gets close, you will see it. Fish close to yourself if you can, especially at first to see this, and you will be a pro in no time. You can cycle what you want to pick up with the R1/RB - many times I found myself circling something I wanted to pick up instead of picking up a body or gun. If you watch the lower right corner, you will see bubbles appear when you are over more than 1 object that can be manipulated. Want those coffee grounds, but that stupid stranger's body is on top of it? Just hit R1. I spent the entire game circling to get in just the right spot to pick something up, or tossing bodies further away from collectibles to get everything. Don't be like me. And that's my unique list. The first one is said in other places, but I felt it bared repeating because it is so valuable. Hope this helps if you are new to RDR2. Enjoy.
  9. So apparently Microsoft is making a "grease proof" controller that will have a urethane coating able to withstand minor scratches, water and even roast chicken grease. I'm most intrigued by the minor scratches and water myself, than the chicken grease, but I do have kids that game. My son is notorious for wolfing down a bowl full of pizza rolls while on his gaming kick. When they were younger, this definitely would have been nice as they would always get a hold of my controllers. Unfortunately though, only 200 are being made. Five are being given away by Xbox's ANZ Facebook group, but no other word is available yet. I mean, if it doesn't add a substantial amount of cost to the controller, this seems like a good idea on the surface. I'm curious how it feels in your hand though and what kind of "slippage" you get as far as grip with it and all. And what if it does get grease on it? Will that make it slicker?
  10. Sorry, I thought I had posted this, but don't forget to get your free games for the second half of November for Xbox LIVE Gold.

  11. I saw TagBackTV on YouTube stick dynamite to a safe and he tells you how to do it, but rather than watch the video, I tried to just Google it. No one out there discloses how to stick dynamite to a safe or wall, and videos on "how to use dynamite" just show people throwing sticks of dynamite. So if nothing else, this will bring people to DHO. Haha. To stick dynamite, you just have to hit the RT. If you aim in (holding down LT) and hit RT you will throw the dynamite. Now, TagBackTV does say you have to light the dynamite and then stick it, but I'm here to tell you that is not the case. You just have equip dynamite, and then hit RT and Arthur will stick it to the safe. Then just hold Triangle/"Y" for 2 seconds and he will light it. Then run. Be warned, the circle around the triangle/"Y" does not fill up like other tasks, and if you are zoomed in close, you might not see it is lit. Be sure you run after you light it because dynamite doesn't discriminate.
  12. Hey fellas, I'm surprised there's nothing in the forum on Xbox Clubs. I'm a community driven guy with not a lot of free time on my hands. For anyone that has experienced my reign in this forum I'm super quick to start a group, but I'm unable to sustain said group. It takes a good amount of work and effort to keep a group going. With that said I started a "Dads Hideout Club" and if you want you can join. There isn't a web interface for Clubs so you can only view it while on your console (or Windows 10 -- I think). http://www.windowscentral.com/xbox-clubs-looking-for-group

  16. Right now the premium pass for Battlefield 1 is free till September 18. I know the game is only $6 on Xbox and Playstation right now, so even if you ever think you might own this game, better to get a placeholder on this pass now then miss this great opportunity. $50 value.

  18. So with the popularity of Fortnite, everyone is jumping on the Battle Royale game mode. I know Battlefield is putting their spin on it with BFV, and now CoD: Black Ops 4 has jumped into the fray. The good news to me though is that no matter where you sit on the fence, it will ultimately mean more content in games. Maybe you don't like it, but there are always game modes that people don't like and do like. Having more variety is not a bad thing in my opinion.
  19. If you haven't bit the bullet on an Xbox One X, it looks like you might just want to wait. Phil Spencer has stated that MS is developing the next console "devices" to release in 2020. While all we have is rumor beyond that, insiders have pointed to what these "devices" will entail. MS wants to release a traditional console like we have now with all the hardware locally, in the console, to play the games you want and with a disc drive. It is said to be developing a second Xbox that is cloud gaming only, no optical drive. It is said to be less powerful (basically just hit detection and controller software) and less expensive than the traditional console, but many believe that it will come with a mandatory subscription model attached to it. Is this going to be like our cell phones where we buy a phone under contract? You get to bring home your $1k phone now, but pay for it over the course of the next two years. Will it simply be an Xbox Gold subscription, or will MS try to sell us on two subscriptions now needed for gaming? One for a game pass/cloud subscription, and one for Xbox Gold? Many say it will be this Game Pass subscription as a requirement for the cloud based gaming, and I sincerely doubt MS will ever stop doing Xbox Gold. Supposedly MS has kicked the latency issue common with other streaming devices and services, and says that gaming with the cloud is now comparable to a simple online multiplayer match. So some lag here and there, but nothing you would notice all the time. That remains to be seen however, and we are still two years away although MS has stated that development on this second, cloud Xbox is further along than many think. No doubt this is a continuation of what MS wanted to do with the initial launch of the Xbox One, but consumer backlash forced them to change. If you recall when Xbox One was first announced, MS stated that it was questioning even having an optical drive, would require a mandatory internet connection and would utilize cloud based gaming. To appease everyone and not suffer the same disastrous results, MS seems now ready to launch both consoles and let the consumer choose. Xbox One was released back in 201, so cloud based gaming and storage has come a long way since then. Was MS truly ready back then for such a bold step? Will they be ready in two years? Will the new Xbox have a mandatory Kinect? Will the Kinect even be included or compatible?
  20. Hey dads, if you've been on Discord, and judging by the attendance, you haven't, we are trying to have a game night tonight and tomorrow night in the FREE Fortnite Battle Royal game mode. This is a free for all game mode like PUBG or Hunger Games or Battle Royal. I'll be heading up the one tonight around 8 CST. I have it downloaded on both my Xbox and PS4, so just gonna depend where we get the most participation. Magma is going to run tomorrow night's Fortnite which I will be there for, but I'm just going to be late, probably not till around 10 CST for me. I think Magma is doing it on PS4, but maybe if I have more success on Xbox, he'll do that. I don't know. Right now he is all PS4. So post up if you plan to try to attend and what system so we can gauge where we will have the most success with this,,,,,,if any at all. And if you haven't joined us on Discord, it's a great time. Always discussions going on and great app to check to see what dads are playing what games currently and get their attention. https://discord.gg/JTvECvn

  23. Hey gents! So Halo Wars 2 is just around the corner! If you are planning to get the Ultimate Edition of the game and you pre-order the game (at least digitally), you will get a free copy of Halo Wars: Definitive Edition (which is playable now). The Ultimate Edition comes with the season pass which will include all the DLC. Also remember, if you buy the game for your Xbox One, you will also be able to play it on your PC if that is the way you prefer to play your RTS games. You will also be able to play with people that are playing on both their PC's and XB1's at the same time...
