Just tried playing Nowhere Prophet (PC gamepass) and it just gets stuck on the title screen and doesn't respond in any way.

It’s a bit weird though. It currently doesn’t have ‘invite’ working. Someone hosts a game and you can join their game. It’s small thing which I presume will be patched.

Seems odd. It's early Access isn't it, that'd explain it. Maybe.

It is early access but it’s still strange alright.

It's finally consistent with the rest of the branding. As much as I love Game Pass, the neon sign logo looked kind of tacky.

They next to need make their box logos equally sleek; current iterations of front-facing box art has a version of the Series X logo/branding appear on it 3 or 4 times.

I haven't been active since before the Showcase so unsure if it's been posted by anyone else. The 'Optimized for Series X' badge has been retired and will no longer appear on the front of physical retail boxes. An 'Optimized for Series X' feature listing will still appear on the back of the box for applicable games. Not sure if MS will officially communicate on this (probably not). Expect to see online assets like packshots on retailer websites change over the coming weeks.

Did they use it on actual packaging irl? One less thing ruining art is welcome though.

The thing they only announced three months ago has been retired?

Working now.

Had a quick go but don't particularly like the battle mechanics, seems a bit unnecessarily complicated.

I really need to jump back into Game Pass, I got loads of value out of it at first but haven't really played anything it has to offer for a couple of months now

It's only retired from the front of retail boxes, the scheme is still going and I expect the badge will still be on webpages. The badge has had a bit of mockery and complaints about it online.
