Short version: 360 friends are automatically mutual, Xbox One ones aren’t.

How odd. It looks like you sort of follow people on Xbox one rather than actually become friends with them.

The next GWG have been announced.

Tembo The Badass Elephant Oct 1-31
Friday The 13th The Game Oct 16-Nov 15
Disney's Bolt Oct 1-15
Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor's Edge Oct 16-31

I for one am bang on Friday The 13th. Have been interested since release but just didn't want to have to buy it in case it just wasn't that good (thankfully Dead By Daylight kind of proved it by being on Game Pass) but I will definitely give it a go as it's free.

Word of advice: NG3 is a complete abomination which might give first-time players the absolute worst impression of the Ninja Gaiden series.

I heard Razor's Edge was a big improvement. Albeit one that doesn't save it from being a bad game, but still.

Razor's Edge is indeed an improvement in many respects. But there is only so much they could improve upon considering how the base game simply gets so many of the fundamentals completely wrong.

I’m finally getting Gamepass because of The Outer worlds.

Really, really looking forward to playing this.

Mind you - I won’t be unless I can work out “DNS is not resolving Xbox server names” error I keep getting meaning I can’t log into Xbox Live.

Cool man, I’ll make a note of that.

Coincidentally the other game that I’ve been wanting to play is “The Outer Wilds”, which is also on Gamepass, so I’ll take a look at that also.

Isn’t the newest Metro on there too ??

I had a look at getting a Gamepass trial just to use on my old 360 to play some older games I missed out on, but it turns out it's not available on 360. I realise it's a bit of a waste having it just to play the 360 games, but it's a shame the option isn't there for anyone who wants it.

So, my Xbox One won’t connect to my wireless network.

Previously, since I bought it, it’s been hard wired into my router - but, I’ve since moved the router and now my Xbox refuses to connect DNS’s with my Virgin Hub 3.

PS4, Switch, iPad’s, Mac’s iPhones, etc.... are all fine. Just the stupid Microsoft machine.

Virgin are just like, dunno, sorry it should be fine. My Router appears to be fine, the issue is just with my Xbox.

I could just go back to wired, but I’d have to move the router back and that’s just another story and is impossible now.

I really want to play The Outer Worlds on Friday.




I’m tamping fuming.

I know this is the lamest suggestion ever, but have you tried going into system settings / power and doing a complete shutdown?

This has worked for me in the past.

Yeah man.

I even did it again once I started following the MS support and problem shooting guides.

I’ve spent two nights now trying to get this working.

I’m at a bit of a loss now really.

I seem to recall having had a similar issue a few years ago on my 360. What fixed it for me was to deactivate the automatic DNS recognition and input all the data manually instead. I think I had to go to my router configuration and manually open up one of the ports there too.

Sorry I can't be any more specific at this point. :(
