Huh, I never thought about buying game codes from third party vendors, always just bought shit direct from the console store. Will check them out  :)

Oberservation is awesome. Im about 3/4 through I think. It draws inspiration from basically every hard-sci-fi film but that isnt a bad thing. Theres touches of Interstellar, Gravity, Stowaway, 2001, Sunshine et al. The result ends up feeling quite original still, especially due to the perspective of the player and subsequent handling of the narrative

Yeah, the ending (no spoilers) is a bit rushed, but overall very cool and unique game.
Although some puzzles aren't really all that thrilling.

I just got a Series X.  Is there anything thatís must play on the Series X? 

Iíve been mostly playing Outriders with some friends.  Itís fairly fun but janky.  Iím glad I didnít spend anything on it.  Twenty second load times for the missions is nice.  It took forever to load on the One X.

I platinumed the game in like 6 hours on the PS5. It's a pretty decent mid-tier game. I enjoyed it.

Maneater is pretty good. Low stakes chilled out sandbox collectathon. Jokes are pretty funny, the guy who plays Jerry in Rock and Morty does the narration, just sprinkling in bullshit shark "facts" while you play. Even has a free DLC Tiger shark skin lol.

Also I played Hollow Knight for 5 hours straight today which is a very very long time for me these days. Wowee I don't know how they made a game that just keeps getting better but they did it. The design is absurdly good. Team Cherry are INSANELY talented. Almost crapped my pants going through the 'Deepnest' level. They totally nailed the atmosphere there. Terrifying, horrible place.

Ya, I'll probably skip Y4-Y6 for now and play Y7 to get the better money value before all these are removed from Game Pass.

Btw, Judgment still pretty good demi. The mini-games suck ass, but they always have and always will be nothing but time wasters.

Lol homeboy is getting "clowned" by the "clap backs" in the comments.

Gamers are some of the biggest nincompoops ever. Crying about games leaving service, wanting physical copies of everything, needing to own everything "forever". JFC man society isn't natural and the sun's going to explode. wgaf

There's a difference between game dropping from GamePass and a game being delisted from XBL.
If you love the game so much that you can't do without it (after it was playable on GamePass for over 6 months) you can easily find them on sale.

Half the people complaining 1. Don't use GamePass or 2. Didn't play and download these on time.

Yep. And a lot of my favourite games on Gamepass have been pump and dump titles. Play em once, get all achievements, delete, never have desire to play again. See stuff like Edith Finch, Donut County, Observation. Even Plague Tale

The campaign DLC for Dishonored 2 apparently dropped on game pass. This is fuckin good shit. At least 7 hours here. Longer, the way I play Arkane games.

Pretty sure Horizon DLC was still paid.

More recently Outer Worlds DLCs are paid. I can't think of any game pass game with DLC.

He is talking about Death of the Outsider I think, there was no campaign DLC for Dishonored 2

Dishonored (did have some campaign DLC)
Dishonored 2 (no DLC afaik)
Death of the Outsider (standalone game that is basically Dishonored 2 Epilogue)

Yeah, Arkane's art direction is stellar.

Wasn't Dishonored's art style by someone that worked on Half-life 2? Because it's basically that same good style.

Yeah he honestly "made" Half Life for me.
Also the only reason why i even attempted to play Dishonored (though i couldn't be bothered to continue).

He also worked on the Nazi Berlin in Wolfestein TNO.

Trying out Like a Dragon, I'm kind of surprised that Kamurocho looks worse than in Judgment which was two years earlier. Might just be the stylized lighting in Judgment. I'd assume textures & geometry are the same.
