This is for the 360, but I went back through my download history to grab a few things I wanted to replay, and I noticed it was light. Super light. Missing half the things I ever had light. Is it just pulling things out of the list or what? I know for a fact I've played Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light but my download history says I never bought it.

e: Also since I got around to playing it Fable Anniversary is loving awful
Did somebody else buy digital games on your 360? If they bought them on your console you'd have been able to play them with your account even though they're not yours. Almost like the "primary console" thing of this gen but not quite.

Might be that and I simply didn't remember then. Though I thought I was the only one on the console for some of these like Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.

On the plus side, I still have Yaris.

He ate too many cheesesteaks and had to molt into a large insectoid form that most retailers wouldn't welcome into their stores so he'll have to just lift gis pictures this time around

They used to call me tricky-kid, I lived the life they wish they did.

So my Xbox is connected to Live, I'm in a party, but games won't connect to their servers. I checked my Gold subscription and it's good through November. I've tried hard resetting Xbox.

I've tried Titanfall 2 and Rocket League, both launch but won't connect to the service. I've tested my network connection in the settings menu and everything comes up good.

Hell, I checked my email for emails from Microsoft in case there was treachery involved. Anyone have a clue?

Absolutely.

It doesn't go down as much as PSN but at this point in my life I get like 5 hours of a week to play games with my Xbros.

I just wanted to play Rocket League before the warden came home, I guess that was too much to ask.

and also conceal this frivolous waste of $600+ with taxes from the Mrs.

univbee's absolutely-not-from-personal-experience-I-swear guide to hiding your Bonx purchase from the wife, because pre-ordering a Bonx is THAT embarassing and also grounds for divorce in over 210 countries

This assumes your wife is looking at line items on your CC statement but not TOO closely to know that things are more expensive than usual.

This should work with Amazon, may work with other stores that have gift cards, those may require you manually get a store rep to intervene and apply gift card balances to specific orders.

You got your pre-order? Fantastic! Work out how many weeks until your CC will get charged (usually 7 days before release date or thereabouts, may vary depending on country and store).

Now what you want to do, is sneak the occasional gift card for Amazon or wherever into your normal everyday purchases in places like grocery stores and pharmacies, basically a store where you would normally do purchases and carries gift cards. You add on a $20 or a $50 gift card, once maybe twice a week, you have to math to figure out how long you have until release. In the case of the Bonx, you have about 10 weeks before the "hammer" drops on the CC, which means if you're Canadian (I'm guessing from the $600+tx comment) you need to sneak about $70 worth a week starting now. You need to buy something else with the gift card so the amount doesn't look too clean, like a candy bar so the amount says $51.14 and not $50.00. You may also be able to get away with a lower amount if, say, a $90 charge from Amazon is OK, you have to math and guess to figure out what's going to keep you out of divorce court (short answer: nothing will).

If your wife is definitely going to notice groceries are $300 higher than normal you'll have to spin other lies, which you should have experience with. Buy expired stuff at a discount and pretend it's prime grade stuff. gently caress it, I don't know, my wife loves me and I don't have to lie to her. No, really, she does. Shut up.

Why not just switch the bank statement to paperless billing for your email address only and change your email password?

For eco-friendliness I also recommend dimming your gas-powered lamps gradually. To maintain the surprise, deny this is happening and insist the light is fine every time your wife brings it up.
