I've had that stuck for a few months now.

I get that message every time I log in, too. It's a bug of some sort, and very common from what I can tell. Adding a credit card won't make it go away (I was paying with a card that expires in 2023, changed to one that expires in 2024, and still the message appears).

Has anyone tried deleting all the credit card info, then adding one?

I have a vague recollection of this happening to me years ago. In my memory, deleting all cards and then reentering the card you want will fix it.

Oh man! My kid loves ruining people's lives. Will have to get this!

"Tired of being a dick as a goat or goose? Have a secret, unexplored love for meteorology? Well, do we have a game for you!"

I have negative interest in seeing any of those games even in the available list. I guess they can't all be up my alley like the previous update.

Ooh, just noticed Zombie Army 4 dropped. It's a lot of fun and has a style all its own.

Yeah, I'm stoked I waited just long enough to get it via Gamepass. Almost bought it like five times.

So turns out if you (like me) have 2 xbox accounts linked to your ea account, then no EA Play on the PC for you. And I can't delete the older one because it's a decade old and I have no access to it anymore. Seems a google of the problem reveals that EA's response is tough luck.

I may have bumped into something like this, and I may have a workaround for you.

If I launch EA Desktop myself, it'll log into my EA account. And then none of the EA Play stuff that's tied to my Xbox account will work.

However, if EA Desktop is closed, then I launch an EA Play game from within the Xbox app, it'll open EA Desktop for me, and log me in with the same Xbox profile as the Xbox app is using, and everything works.

Once EA Desktop is logged in with my Xbox account, I can browse, install and launch things from it.

I think the problem is if you'd previously linked the xbox account to the older EA account at any point. You can't unlink them from the xbox side, only the EA side, and if you don't have access to that account...

I thought I was having the same issue (maybe I linked the accounts back playing ME2 on the 360 or something), but in my case it turned out to be that the first time I tried to launch an EA Play game from GamePass, it created a new EA account for me and linked that. So what I had to do was:

1. Log into the EA help site, choosing to login with my xbox account when given the choice.
2. Unlink that account.
3. Log out of EA help and EA Desktop
4. Log into EA Desktop with my real account.
5. Try to launch an EA Play game from GamePass, at which point it will link the xbox account with the correct EA account.

Since doing that, everything has been fine.

I was a big fan of Pathway when it launched. Picture an FTL-like structure with XCOM style battles, set in a less meathead-man version of Indiana Jones. And gorgeous pixel art! Here's the original thread for it, if anyone's interested.

How important is it to have played the other Zombie Army games to enjoy #4?

Hello YouTube.

So is it lore heavy? Or are you yanking my crank?

I'll save you the bother, here is the lore:

1: There are zombies, who are also Nazis, because reasons.
2: You have to shoot them. No-one but God knows why.

I am going to an outdoor venue for dinner with my wife tonight, but I should be on later and I would be down for this, since I just downloaded it last night.

I should be on around 8:30p central time.

Excuse me, sir. They are Nazis because Hitler executed "Plan Z" to try and turn the tide of WWII, which wasn't going Germany's way. Now, Nazi Zombies took over Germany. You shoot them because not only are they zombies, but Nazi Zombies, which makes them even worse!

(and that's it. that's the lore.)

Basically the Zombie Army games are and offshoot of the Sniper Elite games. Instead of having specific missions where you're going in stealth, this is more like L4D style survivor games. You're just trying to get to certain points on the map with the end goal of getting to a safehouse. At least that's how ZA: Trilogy was. I've only just started to poke around in 4 but it seems like it's the same thing.

Barely any story to care about outside of Nazi Zombies are bad and you have to take them out.

Advise for ea play issue

Thank you for the advice, the issue I'm having is that when I follow the instructions to unlink the account, it doesn't give me the option.

edit - all sorted, now I can join in with my mates playing Titanfall 2 co-op mode!

TF2, what a game!

@Dakhath I am online for some Zombie Army 4, if you are around. I am also on Discord.

Sorry! Was playing till 11pm since I didn't think anyone was coming.

No worries. I didn't see you in Discord, so I went on to play some Horizon Zero Dawn for a few hours.

My friend gifted me a copy of Hotshot Racing and it's awakened a new love for racing games in me. Sooooo, I resubbed to Game Pass and immediately downloaded Forza Horizon 4.

Now I'm really not a car guy, never found any of that stuff interesting...But this is really special, I'm having so much fun with it, and I feel like a whole new world of gaming has opened up to me. This racing stuff aint too bad at all?!

Im getting a region ping bug in Fallout 76 which can be fixed by moving the game to the same directory as the OS. Thats just too much work right now. Looking forward to giving it another shot when they fix this.
