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!


I just played through Old Man's Journey, which was a rather lovely two hour (gentle) puzzler. Also highly recommend Thomas Was Alone and Brothers: A Tale Of Two Sons if you haven't played them already. I believe Hollow Knight is supposed to be excellent, haven't tried that yet.

EDIT - Hue as well. That's ace.

I have played Brothers and Thomas. Both great. Hollow Knight really does not appeal to me personally, but the other two look great - I was interested in Old Mans Journey when it came to iOS way back. Thanks for the recommendations.

Tempted to sign up to the PC Game Pass but not sure if it's worth bothering with the Ultimate deal if I don't really want to be locked in for upwards of a year, and I don't have an Xbox to use Live.

Is Xbox Live / multiplayer free on PC? I seem to remember years ago this being announced as such for Windows 10.

EDIT - Oh, also, is literally every current and future Xbox Game Studios release actually included? That seems nuts.

You don't need Live Gold to play online on PC.

I was wondering where they’d modelled it on.

:lol:

I did enjoy it though, I don't like how Artyom doesn't talk EVER but does in between areas on loading screen. Also, the first 'open' area I got to had a massive loading time, I actually thought the game had crashed must have taken 2minutes at least. It's gorgeous but yeah my god.

Oh god, and that loading time is on the X?!

I haven’t played it yet, but I loved the original two. I bought an XB1-S the other day, and SO nearly went for the Metro bundle. Would have been kicking myself now it’s on Game Pass.

Yeah that was on X, I'm hoping my X had a mini stroke or something.

Only tried the start on the X to see how it looks (lovely btw on the X) but I'd made a start on the Windows version after upgrading to game pass ultimate and no loading issues as of yet (installed on regular HDD not SSD) only problem I have is it not saving the damn graphics options when exiting the game which tons are having trouble with and is likely down to the porting it from Epics store to Windows.

Looks so much better at 1440p/Ultra/Ray Tracing on though and actually expected my save file to be compatible with the console version but it's not :x

How long do games typically last on Game Pass?

Usually a year but some games get pulled earlier. This often means they will make an appearance as a Game With Gold freebie a couple of months later though. Sometimes stuff gets randomly re-added too. It's all a bit random tbh

So where is the cheapest place to get 12 months of Xbox Live as I want to try the Ultimate offer?

Seriously considering getting Gamepass after my trial runs out. It really looks like a fantastic offer.

These titles appeared on the Game Pass App briefly but couldn't be played - Rare Replay, Dying Light, and Torment: Tides of Numenera.

Probably out next Thursday. Also a reminder the State of Decay 2 DLC is free with Game Pass.

Rare Replay is the one game that seems an obvious fit but is missing. I will be real happy if this appears in the near future.

Reactivated my Xbox Live and took advantage of the £1 Ultimate pass.

Looking forward to getting a few games downloaded that I've missed over the past couple of years.

Might actually play through the full Gears of War series for the first time! :shock:
