And how dare they remove NHL 19 before I've even finished 18?

I'll have no idea of the plot by the time I get round to 20.

You will likely earn double that, due to monthly bonuses etc, so you should be able to get at least one months sub every month for free. I don't see myself buying too many games for series x and am hoping a lot of multiplatform games come to game pass, which will save me at least £50 per game. The series x and game pass are great value, even for people who have a ps5 and is the main reason I got it. Microsoft will reward game pass early adoptors for the first 3 years at least and once they have over 70 million subscribers they will slowly increase the price, which would probably still be a deal. At the moment, its a crazy deal, especially for those like me, who didn't get an xbox last generation and have a lot of games to play. Even something like Ori, which I wanted to play, saves me over £40 having to buy them on the nintendo switch.


See, we told you Xbox was better than PlayStation.

Its better value for early adoptors, but overall ps5 is quite a bit better and has better exclusives. Of course microsoft may get some great exclusives themselves in a few years time.

Started Oblivion, not really sure what I’m doing so far, obviously gone for a Wood Elf so I can be a sneaky archer type like my first run of Skyrim.

Edit, went for Wood Elf, Thief Sign and then Assassin build as I thought they’d gel nicely, fingers crossed I’ll be alright! From my very short time with it so far they did make a lot of advancements with Skyrim to make it much easier to pick up out of the box. I’ll certainly persevere with this alongside Fable 1 (which I’ve not started yet, maybe on my next day off from work when I can get a couple of hours into it).

I'm really enjoying Oblivion, moreso than Skyrim. Feels more like a real world with cool little weird quirks.

I dare say it’ll be really good once I’ve got my head round the menus, the Skyrim ones are just ingrained into me after so many hours with it. The start was excellent though, definitely want to do the Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood alongside the main quest, so that’s probably a fair few hours already before anything else.

I kinda missed Oblivion at the time, and played it after Skyrim. The Dark Brotherhood questline is really good in it. I don't really remember much else about it.

There are rumours that Battlefield 6 may be a day 1 gamepass title.

If so that's amazing as I was going to buy it.

I don’t understand why they would do this? It seems like an awful lot of lost revenue, so why?

The other thing. Expectations might be lower for a day 1 GPU game, compared to a AAA £50 game. Makes me nervous for how that would work day 1, knowing and experiencing what day 1 Battlefield releases have been like before.

For anyone who wants to top up for cheap:

12 Months EA Play, which converts to 4 months Game Pass for £17.85.

https://www.shopto.net/en/dwnld37378-ea ... n-p180020/

Good for those mid subscription and cannot do the xbox live to gpu conversion.

Better to stack them up before these kind of deals go, because we also have xcloud, which will be part of the gpu service.

Do you claim these via Microsoft account, or the EA/origin account?

The Dark Brotherhood questline is better than the main questline.

I’ve heard the Dark Brotherhood is (no idea on the Thieves Guild though), hence why I’m keen to play some parts of it. One thing that is seriously impressive about Skyrim and the PS3/Xbox 360 generation of consoles, is how much better Skyrim looks thank Oblivion, I obviously never played the 360 version of Oblivion but Skyrim looked loads better than this on my 360 when I got that, Oblivion isn’t a bad game visually from what I’ve seen although it seems really dark? Had to crank the brightness up in the sewers just so I could get out!

I played Gato Roboto pretty thoroughly when it first came to GP, but there were a couple of achievements I missed, so I’ve decided to go back and get them before it leaves.

Unfortunately the two are:
Complete the game without collecting any health power-ups
Complete the game in under an hour

Using a video to make sure I stay on pace, but it’s damn challenging. Good fun though. (May revise opinion when I get stuck on a boss.)
