Xbox Game Pass & new MS game store app - PC thread

If you can get a good Xbox deal then upgrading it to Ultimate for $1 will include the PC Gamepass stuff.

Add as much Xbox Live Gold time as you are comfortable with (up to 35 months) then do the $1 for Ultimate upgrade deal.

The full monthly cost of Game Pass for PC is $4.99 for some unspecified period of time then $9.99 a month after the “beta” period. You can optionally buy 2 years of Xbox Live Gold for ~$115, then add the $1 Game Pass Ultimate giving you 25 months of Game Pass averaging ~$4.64 per month for the whole 25 months.

Yeah, I’ll never buy another Microsoft console or controller now. I hope they’re happy.

It’s something to ponder.

Just tried Old Man’s Journey on GP, it’s a pretty fun, lightweight “adventure” game, though I guess it’s probably more appropriately considered a puzzle game. That’s where the Game Pass app had it, anyway. It reminds me of another Game Pass game I played not too long ago, The Gardens Between, because they feel similar. Better as a nice little pause or breather between deeper, more involved games. But still worth checking out, I’d say.

New games announced:

Note that only Torment and Goat Simulator are for PC Game Pass though.

Nice… Goat Simulator…

I enjoyed Goat Simulator for 15 minutes once. But hey, they won’t all be bangers.

Oh no doubt, the pass already paid for itself in my eyes with the upcoming Halo stuff , Phoenix Point and The Outer Worlds.

Well, Torment is pretty good. Or so I hear at least.

Now I’m trying to remember if I ever succumbed and bought Torment when it was on sale. Hopefully not.

Just added two years for $120 with Ultimate. It’s a big bite, but it just seemed too good to pass up.

Maybe I should buy an Xbox One now?

That’s the same rabbit hole I went in and caused me to snag an Xbox 1 X. Not having to buy games (since I bought Ultimate mostly for PC at the time) made the price tag quite appealing.

At the risk of being an enabler, you’ve already bought two years of online multiplayer and Game Pass for Xbox. Might as well go whole hog.

And yes, I am looking for people to play games with, nothing wrong with that!

Fine, you win, brain! I pulled the trigger on the $299 eBay Xbox One X bundle with NBA 2k17.

Yay, the QT3 Xbox Squad is growing!

Game Pass is brilliant, it’s setting up Microsoft in a great position going into the next generation.

Hey you guys should download Sea of Thieves, I really need people to play with. I am bad at soloing.

Is there an alternative to onedrive that is decent? Cancelling every possible Microsoft service that I can. Fuck them into hell.
