Yeah just the original edition of Control is on gamepass (which is what I played and beat already). They might put the ultimate edition up but would be kinda weird to have two versions of same game on the service. I'll keep an eye on sales I'm sure I'll be able to get it half off sooner or later

I'd also be keen for a 4k 120fps remaster of Sleeping Dogs so I could get 1000/1000 a third time

Yeah you can already find the Control UE for 10Ä or so on PC (steam version), so it can't be much highr on xbox.

It's no 4K120 but the Series X does push the Xbox One version to a locked 60fps through their FPS boost stuff.

So I finally got my hands on a series x console :hyper

What are the best games to showcase the POWAH of the Xbeast? I'm playing the Ascent and it looks amazing. Might try Ori 2 as well

The best showcase of next-gen stuff might actually be the patched version of Metro Exodus. But you'd have to contrast it to the old console version for it to really show.

I'll check out Visage and Good Life, maybe B4B.

Wasn't TABS already on it though? I know i played it, and i certainly didn't buy it.

I imagine this is the full release. The version on there was called Game Preview which is Xbox' term for early access.

Games can come, go, and come back on GamePass. It's not like people complain about regaining access to a title.

I mean, outside of DP1 and D4 his games suck and the weirdness is all they have going for them. Good Life is like 60 metacritic or something and from all impressions I read just sounds like fetch quests the game.

I used to think Swervy and Suda51 were pretty similar in janky weird bad games quality, but nah, Swervy is a terrible gameplay designer and Suda51 is hit & miss.

*edit* Actually the Switch version metacritic for Good Life is 45, yeaaaaah, game sounds real bad.

GTA San Andreas Definitive Edition coming to GamePass day one

Quote
Players will also be able to experience Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Ė The Definitive Edition with Xbox Game Pass starting November 11.

Though honestly I expect everyone to just buy the trilogy out right instead

Not at launch is how they phrased it. So it might come later.

"Halo Infinite will revolve around a "season" philosophy of regular updates, each lasting "about three months." Staten says that his team is "targeting" a campaign co-op launch with Infinite's second season, followed by another delayed feature coming in the game's third season: the "Forge" customization suite."

Halo as a live service I guess.

so its the co-op campaign coming three (more like 6 :teehee) months after launch, i'm pretty sure the article i read the other day said it was the full (single player and co-op) campaign coming later and it would be multiplayer only at launch  :confused

Too late now.  :doge
Although i'm sad to find out that Ninja Gaiden Black & 2 aren't on GP. :fbm
And JSRF isn't on the damn thing at all.

I mostly bought it to get rid of the ps4 before it's too late, and to have an alternate access to GP games when i can't get on the PC.

Played some Unpacked, it feels like the videogame version of an adult coloring book. I beat the first level and then deleted it.

Played about three hours of The Forgotten City, it's a Skyrim mod that was upgraded to full game but it's still very Elder Scrolls-y, just with most of the combat and RPG elements stripped out and only keeping the talking to people, doing side quests, and looting their chests when they're not watching. Except the gods are always watching.  👀 It's really cool, I'm going to finish it.

With Warhammer III don't you need to have I & II installed to have the full package experience?

I wonder if you have Warhammer I & II installed through steam if it'll work with III on Game Pass for what it needs.

Played some Skate 3 with Gamepass on Series S.

Skate 1 and 2 are two of my favorite games of all time, and this plays just as well, but the map is surprisingly bland both visually and structurally.
I would like them to return to that grounded feel Skate 1 had, without the comedy bullshit (which i get, it's part of Skater culture apparently).

Anyway, the game is fun as usual otherwise, even though it just feels less polished.
For example every single time i need to clear some obstacle for a challenge, a crowd starts to form directly in front of the line, like mindless zombies, they spawn and occlude the space making it impossible to complete.
Difficulty also feels kind of all over the place, but that's not as big of a deal, as long as you can just dick around and your own thing.

Also continued a bit of Scarlet Nexus, but my opinion is more or less the same: skip all dialog, fun combat, a bit repetitive so far.

Oh yeah, and Quick Resume is really neat (when it doesn't bug out).
Granted having to wait 40 seconds to start a game isn't a big deal in the first place, but instantly jumping back to Scarlet when a challenge in Skate got too frustrating, was something i wouldn't have expected to enjoy, but did.
Granted i probably wouldn't use it with a more serious game.

Anyone tried xcloud?

Thinking about upping my sub to ultimate for 1 month. Going out of town next week and if I can transfer my FH5 PC save and play FH5 on Xcloud on a tablet w/dual shock 4 while on a trip that'd be cool. Otherwise will just be playing SMTV/Metroid Dread on the Switch I'm taking and Fantasian Pt.2 on my ipad. This of course only works if my save file is account/cloud-based.

I finally got so pissed off with trying and failing for the umpteenth time to nab a ps5 via Walmarts shitty online setup that in angry defiance Iíve purchased a Series S.  Itís my first bawks ever and I gotta say, goddamn does the controller for this one feel great.

Grabbed Rare Replay, and as an rpg fan am thinking of getting Lost Odyssey and Fable 2.  I already used my free trial of gamepass on pc but will still likely renew that at some point, any other recommendations that play nicely with the S?

Edit: itís taking some real getting used to with the button conventions in menus, working against my multiple decades of Nintendo controllering.

Well I subbed to game pass ultimate for $1 and tried out the xcloud. It's cool and my FH5 save even carries over.

...but the lag is way too extreme for a racing game. Hell I tried a bunch of stuff and anything that requires moving and coordination (fps/platformer/racer/fighting/action) isn't gonna fly and this is on my top-notch wifi. Good luck on a hotel's shitty wifi.

I guess I can play walking sims/turn-based stuff (cards/rpgs/srpgs). But probably won't use it and will unsub to ultimate.

The dream is dead, JSRF never ever. :fbm

I wonder if it was because of the music licensing, or the (allegedly) spaghetti code.
Up to SEGA now to do a proper remaster, like they had for JSR.
