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.

Im planning on giving it a shot tonight, I am interested in how bad the lag is gonna be... I am planning on using it for walking sims, RPGs. But will see if its even playable  :P

oh right, this is what you were talking about. did you figure out it's not available in nz? or are you talking about just streaming a game over wifi from your box? because xcloud doesnt work here. there's no azure servers in nz (though coming soon to a datacentre in akl)

Another ten or so games just dropped. Insane amount of stuff to play. Townscaper is a neat toy and the fastest 1000G since Avatar

Lake sounds interesting

The Gunk was a pretty fun and chill game. Not quite Avatar levels, but you can get the 1000G in about 6 hours.

The Gunk is awesome. Satisfying gameplay and I like the characters and VA. Looks and runs beautifully on Series X. Great soundtrack too. Ideal gamepass fare

Is Halo Infinite Campaign actually good if you haven't played a Halo game in a decade at this point? I liked Halo 1-3 & ODST pretty well back in the day.

Probably? It's more or less the same thing. I'm only a couple hours in but I can say with certainty the game just "feels" good. They've nailed the classic Halo physics

Yeah a lot of the 80s references are cool. I dug the mentions of Prince and Blue Velvet.

I got the 1k, was a nice game with a good story. It's kinda an observation on the lives of common people, how mundane most things are, and how seemingly minor events can be really impactful to some people and so on. The dating and romance was cute. Solid voice acting for an indie game, main character is likable. Great gamepass game to rip through in the holidays

Yeah, kinda reminded me of Beyond Good and Evil for some reason? Just a simple linear 3d action adventure game. Some really nice music. Perfect length for a Gamepass game

I'll take a peek.
BIL just gifted me the console GamePass, but I've only got 360/XbOne, no XSX -- and the Pass doesn't work on PC.  :'(

The majority of gamepass games are fine on an Xbox one. Hades runs perfectly ok. Not sure about Gunk

Dicey Dungeons is very very good, have just started it

Dang, Spelunky 2 straight to Gamepass. I was so hyped to play it on Switch but it's just a harder version of an already very hard game. May see if I can clear it this time, at least

This Gorogoa thing should be fun for the achievement hunters as well. Took me like 90 minutes to play through the game. You can mop up all the achievements in a second run, since you already know the solutions to the puzzles by that point.

Ubisoft+ also being on gamepass in the future is pretty nuts too.
spoiler (click to show/hide)
Hopefully it will be on PC gamepass too, but the wording is a bit sus

edit: wait they are only saying ubi+ is coming to xbox, not gamepass. total dicktease announcement

I've enjoyed my time with The Division. Pretty game. Still looks amazing today.

I didn't touch any of the online play or 'endgame' though. (I already have a treadmill I return to regularly. :shh )

Are there any other games with an atmosphere similar to the Gunk? Or maybe Journey to the Savage Planet?  The Gunk was surprisingly good.

Xcloud performance has been surprisingly good.  Been using that to knock out quests and check out some other games.  Online multiplayer has been pretty decent, too.

Same, finally.
Insane value for Gamepass, similar to the Yakuza titles, though i'll get it on steam obviously.
I figure Hitman is one of those titles you might as well own, given the replay value and ongoing support, but GP can be a good way to try them out.

Is PCVR support also on the same day? I may set the Oculus back up if it is.

Just finished Gorogoa. Pretty slick game, really one of a kind. Genuinely beautiful with some striking and thought provoking imagery. Didn't resort to a guide despite being kinds stuck at times, but the puzzles are never too tough.

Will rinse the cheevos with the help of a YouTube clip for minimal mistakes. I'd like to see the animated sequences again to digest more of the story too. Since the game has no language of any kind it's quite abstract as a given
