Late Shift is well worth a try.
It's a choose your own adventure film with a great story and performances from the cast.

It was made in Wales and the game is set in London and it's amazing.

Go and try it now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!












Have you tried it yet?


I finished my first playthrough of it earlier. Pretty abrupt end - Got to the hotel: May-Ling is dead and the police burst in and arrest Matt.

It's alright, though. Had a couple of moments where the cutscenes stutter presumably while it's figuring out what branch it's going down.

Disappointed there doesn't seem to be a way of leaping through to various decision points, though. Will get a bit boring watching pretty much the same cutscenes seven times :shifty:

I think I got the best ending on my first try although it did mean the main character get tortured for ages so swings and roundabouts really. I ended up doing the heist and the gang all ending up dead expect for one (the hot lady) after I betrayed them good and proper and I end with with about £2.5M and overall the thing lasted a few hours.

Didn't they also say the collection was getting a big update for the One X?

Yes, its getting a big update in general to fix outstanding issues and streamline the UI and co-op stuff but within all that are Xbox One X Enhancements.

As sad as it is, if they get them all at (or near) 4K I'll play them all again. :fp:

It's quite a way off, they pre-testing with insiders at mo.

Not sure if it's a full list, but the app currently shows games leaving on 30/4 as...

NBA 2K17
WWE 2K17

If that's it then that's pretty good. :-)

Hello, fellow gamers! Welcome to your May Xbox Game Pass update.

We’re incredibly excited to bring State of Decay 2 to Xbox Game Pass members on May 22, the same day as its global release, as we continue to build our commitment to deliver the ultimate gaming membership for our fans. We’re also thrilled to announce the futuristic sports game Laser League will be making its debut on Xbox Game Pass the same day it launches in the Microsoft Store on May 10. But wait, there’s more! For soccer fans, we kick off May with Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 which joins Xbox Game Pass May 1 through August 31.

Xbox Game Pass members can also look forward to playing Overcooked! The Escapists, Homefront: The Revolution, Unmechanical: Extended, and Sonic & Knuckles coming to Xbox Game Pass May 1, in addition to the over 100 more great games included in your membership.

In addition to the great catalog additions coming this May, from April 26 to May 8, new members can take advantage of a special, limited-time introductory offer and get the first month of Xbox Game Pass for just $1! That’s unlimited access to over 100 great games and new Xbox Exclusives for just $1 as part of our Endless Play sale.

State of Decay 2
State of Decay 2 is the ultimate zombie survival fantasy that asks – how will you survive? A true sequel to the hugely successful first game, you take on the zombie apocalypse as you build a community with unique survivor characters who have their own backstories and motivations and develop a base that makes each experience completely different. In addition, State of Decay 2 features one of the most requested features from the community: cross-platform co-op multiplayer, where you and up to three of your friends can survive together on Xbox One or Windows 10 PC. State of Decay 2 is available for Xbox Game Pass members May 22.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2018
It’s time to take to the pitch and feel the match-day electricity as Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 comes to Xbox Game Pass from May 1 through August 31. Experience the award-winning series and play as iconic teams like F.C. Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund, put on a gameplay masterclass with the striking prowess of Luis Suárez, or make Emirates stadium rumble with Arsenal’s Aubameyang. The authenticity of the beautiful game is presented with true-to-life visuals and animations of players like Philippe Coutinho, Marco Reus, Lionel Messi, and Neymar Jr. Team up with friends in online 3v3 co-op matches to become the next great e-sports team. Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 is where legends are made. Become one with Xbox Game Pass.

Laser League
On May 10, Laser League, a light-speed, arcade multiplayer shooter like no other, will be making its console debut on Xbox One and join Xbox Game Pass the same day. Roll7, known for the award-winning OlliOlli series and Not A Hero, bring their trademark addictive gameplay to an original vision of near-future competition. Jump into exhilarating 4v4 local matches or go online for 2v2 and 3v3 battles, face off in packed and vibrant international stadiums with intensely challenging laser maps to master, and party up with friends to find the perfect strategic blend of the six distinct player classes. Make use of their unique abilities to dominate the pitch and fry your opponents as the pitch lights up with deadly laser lights. Climb the leaderboards and make a name for yourself, gaining mastery ranks and XP. Unlock new player kits, emojis, and laser patterns to customize your characters to leave your mark on the pitch and in Laser League history!

Overcooked
If you can’t stand the heat, it’s because your kitchen is on fire! Overcooked, the award-winning chaotic couch co-op cooking game for one to four players will be available on Xbox Game Pass starting May 1. Chop, dice, and fry your way to victory in a race to serve your hungry customers before they storm out, taking their precious tips with them! Choose from a variety of quirky chefs and take part in an epic journey, tackling an increasingly challenging gauntlet of kitchens that will push your skills of co-operation and co-ordination to the limits. Have you ever wanted to boil soup while moving between two speeding trucks or bake pizza in a haunted house? Then Overcooked is the game for you!

The Escapists
Award-winning prison break simulation The Escapists is coming to Xbox Game Pass on May 1. While the aim of the game is simply to escape, the beauty is in the execution. You’re free to explore the prison, grabbing every chance to plan your escape between the mandatory rollcalls and chores. Do favors for your inmates, build up your strength in the gym, or read books to increase your skills. Liberate items from your inmates to use for crafting weapons and tools (soap can do so much more than keep you clean). Whether you execute a stealthy breakout or go out all guns blazing, the goal is the same: escape!

Homefront: The Revolution
Rise up and lead the resistance in Homefront: The Revolution, an epic open-world shooter set in a dystopian near future, where the United States has been occupied by the overwhelming military might of the Korean People’s Army (KPA) — available for Xbox Game Pass members on May 1. As Ethan Brady, you must master the art of guerrilla warfare — ambush, sabotage, infiltration, and deception — and fight a running battle through the war-ravaged suburbs of Philadelphia. Homefront: The Revolution boasts a vast single-player campaign and the Resistance Mode, a fully featured co-op experience that lets you and your friends form a Resistance Cell and take the fight to the KPA in thrilling PvE combat.

Unmechanical: Extended
Unmechanical: Extended is a great puzzle adventure game that combines tricky puzzle solving, alluring exploration, and an engrossing atmosphere, and is available for Xbox Game Pass members on May 1. Players can look forward to losing themselves in a world of flesh, rock, and steel, solving a whole host of puzzling challenges, helping our little robot who is trapped in an underground complex find his way to freedom.

Sonic & Knuckles
Hedgehog and Echidna unite! Enjoy a different experience in the world of Sonic where adversaries work as one. Join Sonic and Knuckles from May 1, as they put aside their differences and combine forces to thwart the schemes of the conniving Dr. Eggman. Their goal is to acquire the priceless Master Emerald and save Angel Island—a goal they cannot reach on their own. You can play as Sonic with amazing new powers or play as Knuckles with your wall-climbing skills or bare-fisted fighting style to defeat Dr. Eggman. You have eight zones to explore and two adventures to conquer. And to enhance the excitement you can combine with Sonic 3 to blow out the experience—playing as Sonic, Knuckles, and even Tails to unlock the best secrets. Also, you can combine with Sonic 2 and all of Knuckles signature moves are now yours. Sometimes your enemy turns out to be your best friend!

With over 100 great games available for one low monthly price, including highly anticipated new games from Microsoft Studios the day they’re released, plus more games added every month – Xbox Game Pass is your ticket to endless play. Thanks for reading May’s Xbox Game Pass update and don’t forget: if you haven’t tried Xbox Game Pass yet, you can get your first month for just $1 for a limited time!

For all the latest Xbox news, stay tuned to Xbox Wire. Until next month, game on

Overcooked is a good game and I am happy to get a new PES. I used to buy them every year, but they take up too many gaming hours. I will play this one for the few months we get it for and will have my fill by then.

Has anyone played Homefront? I watched a video not long ago that made it sound like the jump One X completely changed how the game runs and that it's not half bad.

I bought it cheap on disc a while ago. I started it and did not play a huge amount as I never put the discs in anymore! From what I recall it was a solid FPS that will while away a few hours. With that, Book of Unwritten Tales 3 and Assassins Creed London all on the Pass or Games with Gold, I can almost get rid of my last discs now.

I'm still waiting for my gift for playing Cities Skylines pretty much solidly for weeks now.
I keep creating new cities and trying to get as little traffic as I can by supplying shitloads of public transport but my main problem is that as I play with infinite money (I know I'm casual scum and need to get gud but strawberry float that noise) I create dream cities with everything like about 50 parks, 20 schools and free public transport up the wazoo (both buses and an awesome metro system) but I end up with cities with 10k+ people and nobody wants to strawberry floating work in an office or industrial unit.

New Biggleswade has everything you strawberry floating wasters now go out and get a better job than working in a bowling alley I didn't give you all 1% tax while having 150% funding for everything so you can just laugh at my empty as strawberry float buses going round empty office/industrial areas. Also I normally end up with about 3k university places with about 7 students and university is strawberry floating free what the strawberry float is that all about? I'm strawberry floating paying people to stay in education and they still can't be bothered.

strawberry float you Cities Skylines, I will eventually break you and make Biggleswade great again :x :x :x :x :x :x :x
