Went back through the game briefly and cleaned up some achievements and checked out some of the stuff I missed.

- Went off-roading in my 4 wheeler cadillac
- Rode a motherfucking boat (and saw Bismarck I guess)
- Defeated Melusine
- Defeated Cerberus (required starting from chapter 14)
- Defeated Omega (dropped to Easy mode and still took almost an hour+ or plinking away with the new Armiger limit break, level 99 vs level 119 boss)
- Getting 80% of Datalog pretty much requires a playthrough or a bunch of annoying chapter select. No thanks
- Checked out the Terra Wars thing, I guess

All the DLCs are separate so I don't need to worry about levels and such, will dive into those this weekend, then probably check out Comrades

I just got a copy of Royal for X1 late last year. Was going to flip when i initially saw it coming to gamepass, but with the cross-save option may keep.

I guess something is up with FFXV on PC? This game runs under 10fps for me and I have no idea why.  :lol

ran the benchmark and got pretty good results so i'll see if its some random weird setting.

reinstalling the game from the xbox app fixed the issue, whatever it was. but also after playing the new ending sequence (thought i had a post-game save, guess not) i was reminded how much i don't like ffxv. :lol

gonna still play episode ardyn cause him and aranea are the only two good characters in the game so i wanna see his story.

Finished all the DLCs,

They're all pretty decent in their own way.

I enjoyed Gladious, though parrying is stupid broken

Prompto was cool, I like the way guns work.

Ignis was good, dude is OP and I wish we had more scenes of him being OP in the main story.

Ardyn was cool, was surprised to have the "Persona" people (Lotus Juice?) make a song for it.

FFXV is a very uneven game. From the halfway point plot wise, it be ones really engaging and it's easy to feel invested in the characters. Until that point though, it's like a neverending episode of Seinfeld or Friends. It's a game about nothing for the first half.

OH!

While not on gamepass yet, almost all Kingdom Hearts games have been ported and released on Xbone. A very odd stealth release.

Man they NERFED the rewards points for the quests - I guess people snagged too many last month? Oh well, maybe they'll swing back in the other direction next month?

I started playing Plague Tale - totally sickin' hollywood walkin' sim. Great art and colours, awesome VA and music. Love the cello shit - reminds me of the Joker score. Gameplay standard serviceable stuff.

From what I saw, it's pretty different.

I heard about the shit performance though. Late Gen games!

Biggest difference is the combat going from the projectile to melee. Got 22% completion now and have mostly been retreading mechanics from the last game.

Ori 2 gives you abilities very quickly and the pacing has been excellent. It doesn't feel like you're being drip fed tiny additions to your moveset. Combat feels a lot more satisfying than Ori 1 and Hollow Knight (HK would be more fine tuned and balanced for sure). Has the badge/pin system from HK, everything else is fine tuned and expanded stuff from Ori 1.

Playing on the Xbone X, performance had been fixed, probably the slickest looking 2D game this gen. Excellent music, great character and world design. If you're expecting this to be a action RPG or FPS, then yeah, it feels iterative. Its probably the most fine tuned MetroidVania in regards to design and world building.

Why would a 2d (even a great looking one) game have performance issues on Xbox One S? That just seems odd to me.

Never got around to playing the first Ori, one of the handful of top-tier metroidvania's I haven't gotten to. Figure I'll play the original first so I can enjoy the changes/improvements in this new one.

Really good get for the game pass service that continues to be well worth the price. PS+ sucks, humble choice is pretty good for $12/10 games, but game pass (and still $4.99 on PC gamepass) is a total steal. Could almost live off just subbing to game pass and only playing game pass games, there's enough quality added consistently to do it.

If you're a ult member you get a free month of premium and a gold battle pass in PSO2 along with some other things, the former two alone is $15 a month. They give us that every month I'll be on the NA servers more than I thought I would. Thread title doesn't lie. :rejoice

I'm up to like chapter 16 of 17 in Plague Tale - man this game is sweet. It's way more AAA than I was expecting, some of the later area designs/set pieces are really amazingly laid out and scripted and theres some really cool imagery.

Smashed out the 1000/1000 in Plague Tale. Sweet game and good new IP - looking forward to the sequel. I love these third-person single player action adventure things. Makes me wish I played the Tomb Raider trilogy (shadow, rise etc) while they were still on Gamepass. Oh well will get em in a 80% sale sometime in the future.

Started ACE COMBAT 7 last night. Holy shit this is a game alright. Loving the corny AF english VA and fucked up anime style geopolitics. Just got the F-14 SUPER TOMCAT :rejoice :danger-zone

Can you get better paintjobs for your plane? I'm stuck with drab grey atm. Guessing you can drop some $$$ on DLC?  :money

I know it wasn't in the cards for their budget, but i wish Plague Tale was a more open/free form style of stealth game.
Managing and exploiting the rat hordes with light and scents, could've been a fun mechanic, if it wasn't just basically a brain dead puzzle game, but instead tools you could be creative with, in more open maps.

Yeah the mechanics had some real potential - unfortunately there were only about 3 rooms in the entire game that let you be creative about how you chose to progress/dispatch the enemies. Hopefully the sequel will build on this!

Put 4 hours into it last night and got off the first planet. Didn't think it was that bad (playing the game minmaxing persuasion/intimidation/letting my partners do most of the work for me), but the art style is kindddddddda hideous.

Ace Combat 7 is downloaded.

I've got two external SSD drives hooked up for a total of 700gb of Gamepass games. Xbone seems to benefit more from SSD than PS4, am I crazy?

The thing is I think that Outer Worlds is by no means a bad game, in fact its technically good, but it just ticks all the boxes and is completely unexciting. my eyes wuld get sore after 10 minutes of play. Its strange because I loved Fallout New Vegas. I guess the world building wasn;t as good or my tastes have changed. Hard to know.

And yeah, Game Pass is a bonkers deal. I wish I knew  about the $1 upgrade scam before I upgraded, but I'm cool with paying $20NZD a month as the service provides insane value and I'm keen to support it.

Very dank meme. Damn, so Yakuza 0 is a prequel and Kiwami is a remake of Yakuza 1? Sweet I'd better get on these. I enjoyed the first 2 games on PS2 but havent touched the series since. I bet the achievements suck ass tho
