Hope your right! And yeah, that does make sense. I will certainly be giving it a try. I gather it’s rather lovely on 1X.

Only console version to offer a locked 30fps and full 4K throughout. It’s very pretty.

Also, it’s about 108gb’s!

Well deleting GTAV will free up some space :roll:
I don't see me ever getting round to FFXV (do i only download games with Roman numerals in them?) so i think i might be back in the black with the removal of those two titles!

GTA V was only added in January, so it’s a bit off to be removing that so soon. Doesn’t give me huge faith that RDR2 will stick around.

This is what concerned me. I had not waited around for THAT long before getting started on V, only to find its going in two weeks. Still, that's the risk you take with a subscription service i guess. As long as though saves are usable with physical copies of the game (which will almost always be available at deep discount by this point in a games lifecycle) i wont be too bitter about it.

Red Dead 2, what a massive win for Game Pass! After FFR7R this will probably be my next game to take me through to summer.

Just started Deliver Us the Moon. So far so good, although it has timed sections :dread:

Really appreciating how great Game Pass is during lockdown. Never short of something to play and am quickly working through my backlog.

Just in the last 2 weeks I've completed Wolfenstein Youngblood & Halo 5. Started Super Lucky's Tale over the weekend & dabbled a bit with Totally Reliable Delivery Service.

Plenty more that I haven't tried yet and a few I'd like to revisit like Sunset Overdrive. Plus there's Streets of Rage 4 coming soon so it's the service that keeps on giving!

Been really enjoying DIRT Rally 2.0, though a little disappointing to see the Colin McRae section on the menus is actually an optional extra! That would have been pretty outrageous at full price. It appears the game needs to be always connected to the internet as well.

Handling and graphics are spot on, but I was surprised to see the return of screen tearing (seems to be worse on the night tracks), particularly on X. I remember it being extremely bad on the original DiRT on Xbox 360.

Redownloading Metro Exodus, as I’ve been informed by a gentleman on here that it now works on Xbone X, as opposed to continually freezing and bricking my console.
I started it on PS4 and ragequit fairly early on so hopefully things pan out differently :shifty:

After a terrible opening few hours to that game, it has ended up one of those most memorable games of the generation for me. It certainly splits opinion, but most would agree that it runs and looks lovely on 1X now.

Awful AWFUL load times though.

Does moving out offer a way of 2 people playing with one controller (like overcooked i believe did)?

8-)

What did you hate about Metro Exodus at first? I got to a small island, just having an explore, and kept getting killed by loads of blokes when I had, like, 7 bullets. They’re all crack shots, no cover to duck down behind...pad nearly went the journey through a window.

Well that would do it - but i hated the forced stealth near the beginning (when you are trying to hijack the aurora i believe). It just drove me mad. In the end i had to hide in a corner and gun down everyone who came looking for me. I hate stealth sections in games, and appreciated that you can always use it in moderation in Metro Exodus, when things "go loud" any stealth kills etc will just ease the situation, not make it an instant restart. The section i mentioned above was the one exception as i recall.

Ammo becomes far more plentiful as the game progresses. Never overly abundant, but certainly not scarce enough to induce anxiety.

Is that the bit with the crazy cultists? Yeah, it's a bit on the tough side and ammo is rather limited I think I managed to do it by being a total coward and just hiding as much as humanly possible as that's what real heroes do :shifty: .

Aren't some of them cannibals or am I thinking of something else?

Cultists, I think. It wasn’t there but not terribly far afterwards, just a random island I was exploring. Difficulty was suddenly crazy. Absolutely loved the last 2 games so I hope to get through this too.
