Would make sense if it was more like EA Play than EA Play Pro.

The wife and I booted up PHOGS! the other day, and we were very pleased with it!

It's very cute co-op puzzle/platform game where you each play as one of two heads on a weird conjoined dog noodle, a la CatDog. Lots of focus on grabbing onto things with one head and stretching out with the other to solve puzzles, like using your body as a hosepipe to water plants that will grow into platforms, etc.

Very very cute, with a non-zero chance of spiralling into "No, this way- no, let go of tha- no don't jump off-" "Stop shouting at m-" "I'm not shouting!"

Probably best in small doses. :lol:

Fan fave returning. Maybe GTA, Red Dead or Fallout 4.

Fallout 4 has been and gone more than once if memory serves...it’ll be back for good with the Bethesda deal anyway.
PLUS, all the cool hipster trendy gamers are supposed to hate it, ergo not a fan favourite. Which is why I like it.

Wouldn't the hipster gamers like it for the simple fact most don't?

The first Xbox Game Pass casualties of 2021 have now been revealed via the Xbox Game Pass mobile app. A total of four games will leave the Xbox Game Pass library, including My Friend Pedro (including the Windows 10 version), Tekken 7, Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet and FTL: Faster Than Light. No exact date has been given for when these games will drop out of the service, but we expect them to leave on January 15th.

This game might just push me too far. It’s like it was designed to destroy me.

I don't suppose if people know whether Fallout 4 coming to Gamepass would mean it's the GOTY edition/be accompanied by all the DLC. I'm probably 1/4 of the way through it on the PS4 (having bought it back in 2015 so I'm a bit behind) but would probably shelve that if the Gamepass version had all the extra content and a better frame rate.

Not sure if Gamepass deals, like the one with MS owning Bethesda, means DLC is free and automatically on the service too. Gears 5 had free DLC, but Forza Horizon still charges, so I guess there's no set rule?

Playing WW has made me realise how wierd by organisational skills are. I see an unlockable in the shop called time lapse. I'm hoping that it is exactly what it sounds like and will give a blow by blow acocunt of brain failing to parse where to store 100+ different abstract items.

THAT BEING SAID, if you need to know where to find thermometers (hot or cold reading) at a moments notice, i'm your man.

Fanastastic game.

No idea what version of Fallout 4 wil come. Hopefully find out in the next couple of days. Might well have the new double the framerate to 60FPS tech.

Getting significant free DLC with Game Pass is rare, only happened with Gears 5 & State of Decay 2.

Ooof, a rare miss for Game Pass. Genuinely terrible selection there for Xbox. That being said, anyone with a PC who has not checked out Edith Finch should really get on that.

The Little Acre is a beautiful, gentle little traditional adventure game. Don’t overlook it.

And the Torchlight series is brilliant, so I’m glad to be getting 3 for free.

To be fair this one did look like it might warrant a look.

Seeing as that’s just been tweeted today, but it’s been on PC Game Pass for a few weeks, could this indicate an imminent console release?

Doubt it. Interestingly, the company who make the game are just up the road from Redmond's MS buildings and they know them really well apparently according to Phil. Not quite sure how this would work with randoms but it'll be interesting.

I wonder if MS offered SE a boatload of cash to have FFVII remake on Game Pass in March?
