So Xbox live runs out in September. I did have gamepass for a year but it ran out and I did not keep it. I just had other games on other consoles to play. I have a 12 month game pass sub code that I bought on Amazon. When will be the best time to use this with ultimate now. I'm interested in 12 minute, night call and gears 5. If I use the 12 month code do I get a discount on live?

You can get a Live Gold sub which when activated along with Game Pass you can upgrade to Game Pass Ultimate for £1 which adds and converts both subs remaining times and adds another month on top for that £1.

Just upgraded my subs, had 6 months of Live left along with 5 months of Game Pass + the £1 month takes me to May next year. I'm happy enough with that, rarely play my Xbox (Which will definitely change come Gears 5) so I'll likely make more use with the PC side of it for now.

Assuming you've not already added the 12 months, do so before you upgrade to Ultimate (if that's what you want to do).

In fact if you want Ultimate then buy up to another 20 months (on top of what you already have) of Live and then upgrade, basically each month of Live becomes a month of Ultimate when you upgrade at the moment.

One thing to note is when you add a code on, you'll get an extra month if you turn on auto renew if its off. So have it off, except the extra month and then turn it off again.

By my calculations I need to add another 18 months of Live Gold to my account to make the most of the Game Pass Ultimate conversion. Time to find some cheap codes!

I still can’t believe Metro Exodus has been added so soon. Went to download and they have Shenmue 1&2!

NO. No more games. I actually spend more time downloading or reading about games then I actually do playing them.

Played Metro Exodus for an hour. Hated it, uninstalled. No remorse. That's what's great about Game Pass. It will help me find my next game, but this was most certainly not it.

I do believe people suggest giving it a bit more time to get started. Still, an hour for some could mean no time for something that instantly clicks.

I dont understnd this, but;

I dont have game pass but I have gold until November.

So is my best bet to get 24months of gold then upgrade to ultimate for £1 which will give me ultimate until 2022?

The opening level is poor, but very Metro.
. The open worlds are ok, but not very Metro.
The final level is very Metro, and very good.

There’s also another linear level in the middle, but I’d almost forgotten about it already.

Your best bet would be to get 30 months of Gold and then upgrade, but yeah I think you get the idea.

I got caught up in things and converted before applying additional time, so only got a few months for the $1 :fp:

Yeah I strawberry floated up as well. I’m paid up until the middle of next year, but really should have thought about it and got an extra year or two.

Just watched the Kinda Funny E3 Indie game presentation, and now i want to play some Indie games.....

What are some of the highlights on Game Pass please? I have played The Gardens Between, The Swapper, Edith Finch, Abzu, Braid and a couple of others i have forgotten. Any hidden gems in the library? Was thinking Moonlighter next, though i'm not a big fan of Rogue-likes (Void Bastards has made me reconsider that view).

Thanks!
