Pointless for me (since i already have it on ps4 and don't have an xbox) but  :leon
I'm assuming it's for, like, 2 months at most.

Actually, on PC they go cheap relatively fast and relatively hard.
For example they gave out all their shit for (near) free in plenty of occasions, just to promote their new thing.
I know they gave LA Noire, GTA4 and Max Payne 3 away for peanuts, when needing to promote GTAV and RDR 2 PC.

maybe its an attempt to get people into the MP, it was pretty dead the last time i was playing it. doesn't seem to be much to do, especially compared to gtav online

It feels like GTA V has had an MMO'S worth of content added, but I don't want to sit thru 30 cumulative loading screen hours to play thru all that shit.

Issue was it launched as garbage, I was pumped to play it as I put 100s of hours in RDR1 online. GTAV online was fine at launch.

RDR2 Online launched with a terrible F2P economy in a retail product, and nothing to do. They've added stuff but not sure how cool it is.

To me it was the same problem GTAV had, just constant griefing annoyance.
I know you can put some kind of immunity mode, but it's not exactly ideal.
I think i would just rather have a coop mode with 4 players, than this pseudo MMO thing they always go for.

Playing Worms WMD as there's a weekly quest for some rewards points (I'm pushing for the big 1000 monthly quest). I really dug the original game as a kid in the 90s and the classic formula is still good. Lots of customisation options in this installment

This has been my problem as well. It's not just that it's a bunch of F2P economy, so much as them showing off a bunch of stuff that isn't even available due to me not having leveled up. I mean, I got it in GTA Online, when they roll out options based level, on trying to ease the player into how many Jobs/Modes there are, but this SHOWS the player how much stuff is there, but doesn't allow them into it.

And the whole menu structure is hard to understand.

And they offer to drop the player directly into explanations of what each new item/mode unlocked is, but from within the Pause Menu, I can't dismiss it with Option Button, I've got to B-Button back out through a half dozen depths. Sometimes this happens during a mission online, where it doesn't actually pause.

I started up Gato Roboto and I swear some of the tileset is literally swiped from Metroid. This was released on Switch and Steam first too apparently. I guess they traded temp console exclusivity for not getting sued? Though you probably can't really get in trouble for having similar blocks. But it's just so so insanely obvious. :lol

GTA online should just be you can either go in with strangers or go in with a group of friends and do crazy shit, not shitty deathmatches or shitty races. You know like...playing GTA like you would by yourself, but with your bros.

I tried about 30 minutes and couldn't get into it. If you want a walk around adventure in space (or float around) Tacoma is probably the better choice here. Your writing or art's gotta be stellar if you expect me to play any of these, so hard pass.

Working on Plague Tale; holy shit @ these graphics, these are the same monsters who are doing Flight Simulator. They know their shit. Good prep for when the Corona Rats start arriving

Yeah, the Plague Tale gfx engine was super smooth and slick on my Xbox One S. Sweet game. Tks for spaceman impressions.

the only downside is that ff9 on pc is a port from mobile, dunno about the xbox port but i assume it will be too. not a ton of difference in the actual gameplay but the ui is redone and much uglier imo. also there's a bug that never got fixed where the field music restarts from the top after every battle, so you'll hear the first 30 seconds of each area theme a lot.

the game itself is still excellent though.

I think the UI is alright, people bitch too much about it.
It's a bunch of text boxes anyway.
Graphics look very nice and sharp, but you have to mod the backgrounds with that AI improved ones.

Seems I'm done with the gamepass for now. Finished like 70 of the games that are on the service. Basically the only stuff left I want to play is stuff I own myself.

Hope they've rotated in a new batch of games around the time the Xbox Series X launches.

If you’re expecting a good story or level design then lol.

If you go in just wanting some real satisfying shooting with varied weapons and abilities then it’s decent, albeit hilariously repetitive after just a couple of hours. I’ve had quite a bit of fun with it, but it depends on your ability to turn your brain off and check off endless outposts and points of interest on the map.

It's basically a modern Far Cry game. On a regular xbone I'd give it a pass. The 60 fps on Xbox One X made it a decent alternative to a Far Cry game.

I mainly booted it up cause I thought the story behind it was cute. 15 year old girl making her own game about mental health. Got more respect for that than these thot gaming influencers.

IMO Gamerscore has lost value to me due to all these "easy" games especially since XB1 launched and more indie titles came up.

I still like Gamerscore and Achievements and Trophies, but I try to focus more on games I want to play

I do sometimes cave and play some easy games like Tacoma so I'm not immune to hypocrisy



Very interested in Minecraft Dungeons I hope it's good

Yes a little. It's ok, in that Torchlight kind of way. Achievements don't look too bad.

I don't think it's cross-play, and you can only play online with friends, theres no random matchmaking.
