I'm definitely keen in give Fallout 76 a shot. Given all the bad press it has had, it's not something I'd want to pay money for without trying first.

Is it easy to play like a standard Fallout game just with daily and weekly tasks is there an equivalent of raids?

Started some remote downloads on the app today but they didn't actually start until I got home and was back on the same WiFi as the Xbox. Anyone else had this?

I used to get that but updated app recently, I’m on iOS... Fallout 76 is likely playing Fallout 4’a survival
Mode except it has co-op and other players around who can’t hurt you till your level 14 and even then it’s pointless.

Played the first couple of hours of Crosscode. Seems great, makes me fondly remember Secret of Mana. It has that lovely overly reverberated sound that was so synonymous to SNES games as well. Story is really intriguing (and so different from most JRPG's) and i love the little conversations you can "over hear" (people AFK, people scared of heights in VR etc).
I'm really bad at bouncing ball related puzzles though....

It's very hit and miss. Sometimes it'll work perfectly, sometimes not at all.

Game Pass seems to be OK for me, but remote downloading from the store never works.

Like Fallout survival mode in that you need to find food and water and lose everything when you die?

I guess the app is just hit and miss. Still a cool feature when it works.

Well no, you don't lose everything but you do need to eat and drink but it's not too bad. It takes a while to die a long time in fact so no DayZ situation where you can literally starve/thirst to death by being unlucky.

I get this problem. Sometimes it works remotely, other times it does not. It did not even start when i queued the game up (Crosscode) from their website on a PC. Which normally does work ok for me. All my permissions etc are correct.

Honestly, at this point its the biggest issue i have with the whole Xbox infrastructure. Everything else works excellently for me (i have even finally managed to get a spoof US address working with my card details, so i can finally download Xbox 360 GWG titles).

I played a bit of Cross Code last night, I like it a lot, it runs perfectly (so far) and the music is genuinely excellent. Apparently the guy who did the music had been writing it for years while attending College so he did tracks when he had free time.

That looks like it’s going to be great fun, in a Mutant Blobs way.

Nice! This service is remarkable for me. Best thing in gaming ever.

Currently playing The Messenger (which I would never have tried) and am loving it. Getting close to the troubled second half now though I believe.

Flight Simulator is going to look bloody amazing on the Series X.
Could be a game of the year contender for me.
