Oh gooseberry fool! :o

I don't expect it to be on there forever since Imperator: Rome will disappear tomorrow after less than a year on the service, but that's pretty cool.

New episode of War Stories is about the struggles of developing Alan Wake.

Maybe there's some sort of PS Now exclusivity? (It's on there until the end of August.)

If it ever comes close to £20, I think you should bite the bullet and get it. It's easily worth more. £25? Definitely. But £20 would be a complete steal. And honestly, the game is SO good that I don't think you'd feel any disappointment if you bought it and then it later did hit Game Pass. (Whenever and however you play it, go into it knowing as little about it as possible; the game is positively oozing with spectacle and atmosphere and they'll hit you all the better if you don't know what's coming.)

They're over there, by their theremin.

Problem is Phil Spencer mentioned it coming to Game Pass. It was then retracted, but he wouldn’t have said it for nothing. I’m convinced it’s going to happen, and I’ve waited this long. If I buy it, it’s bound to be added the next week.

And I’m not exactly short of stuff on my backlog.

I have always wanted to play Alan Wake. Really happy about that. RDR2 is consuming all my gaming time now though. Expected not to like it after everything i had read, and it turns out i absolutely adore it. Doesn't seem like an obvious example of Game Pass boosting interest in a game (its hardly a hidden gem), but i am so glad it got me to play it. Its currently on path for being one of my top 3 games of the generation. And my god is it pretty on 1X.

Alan Wake is Remedy’s best game and I just bought Control (which is great btw) but Alan Wake is a step above.

Glad you like it, I thought it was incredible and yes it looks stunning on 1X.

It's kind of like a first person shooter, but not really, but is. I played the demo.

I had it on pre-order with Amazon for 5 years and then didn't bother playing it when it turned up.

Fantastic :fp: .

It is only £25 though. And I do really want to play it.

Probably! Then again, like you said, if it’s coming off PS Now in August maybe that’s when it will go to GP. I’ll wait another three months.

Played FFIX briefly, this port is strawberry floating weird. Longer load times, animations aren't as smooth during battles. I don't think I could play the game again.

I’m going to sign up for Gamepass Ultimate when I get paid later this month. CDkeys have 3 months for £21.99

https://www.cdkeys.com/xbox-live/games/3-month-xbox-game-pass-ultimate-xbox-one-pc

That’s the right one for UK right? I guess this is the cheapest way to buy it?

Long Live Switch Squad!
