Do you have Ultimate?

Yeah I do.


Weird. Don't know why it's not working for you then. I've been playing The Sims and downloading Jedi Fallen Order tonight.

With Valhalla supplementing Gamepass, the fear of no games to play has vanished for the foreseeable future. I can’t WAIT to play Gears Tactics, Jedi Fallen Order and massively enhanced regular games like Sea of Thieves, Horizon 4, Gears 5 etc.

Plus next month I’m getting Cyberpunk and Gamepass has Destiny 2’s DLC plus 60fps patch, Dragon Quest and might even get FM21.

In case anyone else gets it, I reached out to MS and apparently many people are having this issue. No solution yet but I can report back when I get one.

Oh crap, those are some heavy losses this month. Might have to buy Mutant Year Zero, as I don’t want to lose that.

Demons Tilt has been on my 1X since landing on the service. Fun little game and not too late to try it (its only pinball) if that sounds like your bag.

Demons Tilt looks a lot like Dragon's Revenge and Devil Crash, if it plays anything like them then I can see why it'd be good.

Yeah, wait until you hear that soundtrack :datass: There is a real 16-bit feel to it.

Having they taken the Leaving Soon section out of the app? I can’t find it.

It’s not showing anywhere in the console menu either. Been like that for a couple of weeks.

I'm gradually growing to the idea of a library-type gaming service but it's the "games leaving" that slightly puts me off. There doesn't seem to be much notice and, if you're playing a big game, you might not have time to complete it.

Can't fault the value, though, and it must be fantastic to be able to try out all of the latest Microsoft Studios games at launch.

The least notice they give is probably 2weeks, but, they are VERY transparent about it, it's flagged up on the App both on Console and Phone. 10% off if you want to buy to continue playing.

I guess two weeks is kinda okay and I like the sound of the 10% discount.

It's happened to me a couple of times, I failed to get Strider and The Escapists: Walking Dead finished in time. But both those games have been on sale since for a lot more than the 10% Game Pass offers. I try not to worry about it too much.

I'm starting to switch away from thinking I need to complete a game and just having fun for the period I'm playing it. The fact I'm not buying the game means I don't feel the need to extract value out of it if I'm not enjoying it. I tend to drift away from games anyway as the next shiny thing comes along so at least this way I'm not increasing my pile of shame.

Except it doesn’t appear to be any more. Unless you can tell me where to find it.

They certainly don’t alert us that games we’ve installed are leaving soon (and they could, easily). The information might be there if you go looking, but that’s not the same thing. Thankfully Monkey Man does that job here (for which I thank him greatly).
