Nice, I heard Eastshade is good but it's always been a bit pricey. And wanted to try Knights & Bikes.

EastShade is a fantastic game. Very relaxing and laid-back experience.

Played through day of the tentacle, was awesome. Did complete a lot of the puzzles from memory but did cheat on a few of the more esoteric solutions. Those old point and click games could be so obtuse. Onto Full Throttle now. Great game, abysmal rock music

I think I just really didn't like the slow song that played during some early puzzles: "the population is slowly decreasing" or something. Will give the rest of the songs a go. The opening track was fitting for the biker dudes. I like how the baddie is named Adrian Ripburger

I actually thought the 343 campaigns were fun, but they definitely changed some of the formula. It's like walking out of a Taco Bell with a sushirito, it's still made with the same 5 ingredients but everything feels kind of different.

Nevermind then lmao  :lol. I think I actually played it when it launched, cool game.

Sadly I dont use the service enough.. I kept it on for Forza Horizon 4 but honestly I should have just bought it.
I dont think it offers too much for PC users.

Finished Full Throttle, man that was a short game. BS trial and error action sequences at the end. Defo a weaker SCUMM title but the setting was cool. Easy achievements.

Grim Fandango next!

Jedi Fallen Order?  If so, I enjoyed it a lot.  It kind of reminded me of a cross between the Tomb Raider reboot with a Souls type game.

Well deleted Forza 7 and downloading it now. Will give the campaign like 30 mins and see how it looks/plays on PC. Going back to Reach's visuals was...yeah, pretty dated. Hopefully Halo 4 being one generation ahead looks a little nicer.

Nm, Halo 4 was a X360 game. I wonder why I never got it/played it. I was into Halo and got them all through Reach. Thought I didn't get 4/5 because they were on Xbox One.

Grim Fandango is so good. I missed this one back in 98 due to only owning a ps1 (I had played the other T Schafer games on an earlier 486 w/ CD ROM I had access to eg. Day of the Tentacle and Full Throttle)

Manny's voice acting is so endearing and likable and the whole milieu of the game makes so much more sense to me as an adult with knowledge of film noir, smoking, and DŪa de Muertos.

3 month game pass ultimate for $20. If you remember to disable auto renew before activating then youíll get an extra month so itís $60 for a year.

Won't a year of gold still convert to a year of Ultimate if you let your sub run out? You can get a year of Ultimate for $60 this way also.

Halo under Bungie was space war opera that revolved around around conflict that spanned a short amount of time in the Halo universe. Halo at its best revolves around large scale war.

343 tries to tell a story incorporating lore into everything, and trying to inject storytelling into Halo when it doesn't need it. Halo 4 didn't invoke large scale conflict. Halo 5 didn't. Halo Infinite most likely won't.

Halo 4 should've been Earth getting destroyed, pockets of humanity escaping, Master Chief and the remaining Spartans end up being the remaining line of defense. A Halo ring ends up being habitable, Humanity fights to seize it. There's vaults on the ring to ensure survival if you use the ring. Space drama, betrayal, cliffhangers, yada yada.

Large scale and interesting conflict. Instead we got "how does Master Chief feel about this?????"

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.
