~The Game Pass Thread~

Yep, in Windows. Definitely didn’t get that pop up screen for the two games, just the animated rocket that never goes away. I thought that pop up screen came up after that though?

I experienced the same thing even on the Series X though, at least once.

…and for some reason it’s just working fine today (well, I’m having a bit of an issue with Hi Fi Rush–I think it’s not the best choice for Cloud gaming, what with the extra latency introduced. Either that or I’m a rhythm-less clod).

Just finished Norco on game pass, and have really mixed feelings about it. Anyone else play it? Though it definitely has its moments, it felt a little too pretentious with its writing at times. Reminded me a little of Disco Elysium, though I thought that hands characters were much more memorable.

I ended up putting it down in the middle (at the point when I was sneaking into the mall?) partly because the writing style wasn’t gripping me, although I was curious about the main characters. A lot of neat elements, but it didn’t come together for me, personally. I found Citizen Sleeper and Pentiment both more interesting as stories and games.

Is the trick coming to an end?

For those who can’t be bothered to click, the 1 dollar for a month deal is gone, but you can still do the gold to gamepass conversation, for the time being.

I don’t think that changes the $15 subscription trick, just the $1 one that you can do once.

That’s right, but the writing has been on the wall for like three years. It’s gonna happen sooner or later.

MLB is out. I am very rusty, as I always am at the start of the season. Lost my training game 16-3, giving up 10 runs in one inning.

There’s a reason for Spring Training, it turns out.

I just checked the leaving soon section on xbox and Quantum Break is there.

Missed this with the earlier announcement so if anyone is close to finishing now might be the time.

Hey cool, Loop Hero is coming to Game Pass (and Xbox)! Always meant to try that one.

Oh hey, two months of Peacock Premium Plus? I hope that’s not just for new members but also for lapsed members. I want to watch Poker Face.

It’s super fun - and I will be happier to play it on the xbox!

Also, Remedy has posted about Quantum Break’s status on GP:

Whew - I’ve been planning on playing that and had no chance of doing it before it was removed.

I bought this shortly after release never even unwrapped it. At some point, realized it was on GP and thought, OK, will just download and play it. Read it was leaving Game Pass a few weeks ago and thought, OK, now’s REALLY a good time to play this.

Haha! Still haven’t played it!

PC Game Pass nearly doubled its footprint today, adding 40 countries where it’s now available for players. Not sure if any folks around here might live in one of these countries but now’s your chance to check it out, if so:

Ravenlock is coming May 4th. Day One Game Pass game. Apparently it was shown last year in the June showcase? I vaguely remember thinking one of the games was Alice in Wonderland and then being surprised when it wasn’t. I think this is that game. From the developer of Echo Generation, which I haven’t played.

I gave it an hour or so. Theme/story was ok, pixel art was meh, did not care for the combat. Too much time wasted seeking healing for the party members after a battle.

The look of this one is far more interesting.

MInecraft Legends seems good
