Can anyone recommend some linear shooter campaigns on GamePass? Rage 2 has some of the most fun shooting ever but itís wrapped in so many layers of pointless map icons and audio logs that itís strictly a podcast game

Halo and Gears will be good and probably Crackdown 3, Black, Doom Eternal, and Wolfenstein: Young Blood but I haven't played those last four. I would have recommended BF1/5 from the EA library but Dice decided to go wild with stupid stealth missions that don't work well. The other half of the campaigns are pretty fun in a mindless big war action way.

Quantum Break is a good story driven 3rd person shooter with a striaghtforward, self-contained campaign. No multiplayer, no GaaS, no DLC, no bullshit

All those are real good except for Young Blood. That game is hog shit and I was disgusted by how terrible it was. Fuck that game. This was clearly not the A-team working on it.

Apparently 343 are adding a BR to Halo, maybe get the game to a functional and well polished state before you try doing other things? Can see this game not coming until 2022 at this rate.

I learned today that if your XBL account is linked with someone else's, you also share GamePass. My sub ran out last month, but my nephew recently re-upped his and I'm still able to download and play GamePass games. This might be old news, but I had no idea.

Honestly kind of boring lineup after the big recent hits like Doom and DQXI.

I guess I'll try Medan.
Wish Code Vein was PC. I guess the issue with a lot of these is there's no windows store version, only Steam and Bamco isn't going to put the time in to port it between stores.

Literally in the first 3 minutes, she starts awkwardly describing everything, like a mad woman.
"Oh no, i've had that bad dream again, that i've been having ever since my husband died in the mysterious train wreck after he started his research on the lost city of Atlantis which was also his childhood dream as revealed to me by that old lady at the fair when i was a child myself, right after my dad left me and my mother!"

I can understand being overly-descriptive when you examine things around the room, it's kind of like PS1 survival horrors, classic p&c adventures or even RPG were, but you could try to be a tad elegant about it.

Its a good walking simulator. Its decently written and the artwork/level modeling is great - feels higher budget than it is. Its a little artsy without being too pretentious - a hard balance to strike. It's not too long either. I'd recommend it, especially at zero oppurtunity cost

Microsoft Rewards is doing a 10,000 Gamerscore promo again so I cranked out some GamePass games recently

- Sea of Solitude (EA Play)

Ok little "ICO" game about some girl's personal issues and her family's issues.

- Eastshade

Weird little game that looks like some Elder Scrolls mod. You walk around the land of Eastshade where you have to paint these 4 pictures of your Mother's last wishes, but in order to access these areas you have to solve some puzzles with people's issues. Theres no fighting you just explore and solve puzzles. There is some material gathering involved.

- The Little Acre

Nice animated adventure game, reminds me of Broken Sword (Charles Cecil was involved). It's very short, the puzzles arent terrible.

- Full Throttle Remastered

It's Full Throttle

- Call of the Sea

Not sure why this is promoted as Series X optimized, nothing really said cum in me that's next gen. Anyway it's an adventure game where you just solve puzzles. I got stumped on 2 puzzles, the rest are pretty easy to solve. I enjoyed it.

- Superhot: Mind Control Delete

First time trying superhot and this game is pretty fun. This is the "DLC" expansion, so it doesnt have the original story and such. It has this Roguelike element where you can unlock new abilities, and as you do a level you randomly get to pick from them as you progress through the level. So if you die, you start back at the beginning but you get new dice rolls for your perks.

- Touhou Luna Nights

Weebavania. You play as some Meido who throws knives everywhere and it has a "graze" gimmick where you brush your tits against enemies and you get HP/MP etc back. Pretty short game, I had fun with it.

- Hypnospace Outlaw

Very interesting game here. I enjoyed mimicing the OS of a computer more than the garish geocities websites. It's pretty much a puzzle/adventure game where you solve them by navigating the websites and find hints to search for stuff.
