Too bad they didn't make a PC version of MLB. I'd give it a shot. Played The Show like five years ago and was pretty good.

Does Outriders force you to sign up for a Square Enix Throbbing Members account, if so I will make one in advance

Beat Wolfenstein the New Order. Superb game. Downloading Old Blood now. For some reason The New Colossus isn't on gamepass? Will pop into gameplop to see if I can get a cheap disc copy

Just put 4 hours into Prey. Holy fuck this game is good. Like System Shock 2 good.

Also they finally unfucked the Xbox version, I know the console releases of this were SUPER broken, but now we coo

Genesis Noir seems sort of interesting in a museum exhibit art piece way. Very little gameplay so far, just a bunch of arty stuff.

But nice looking animation and music. Always a sucker for Noir stylings.

God almighty...
This EA desktop app is shit.
To uninstall games you have to go through the control panel of windows, which is already odd (unless there's some hidden button somewhere in it).
But then i uninstalled the app itself, because fuck it, and there's still a 500MB folder in program files i can't delete and the program is STILL installed in the computer (if i click the exe it just starts up like normal) despite not appearing anymore in the programs list, in the control panel.
EA is like fucking malware, goddamn.

Prey is a good game and we deserve a sequel to it. If you get tripped up by it do yourself a favor and stick with it till the end. The Mooncrash DLC is wild fun.

I stopped playing Prey because it's exactly Bioshock in space. You comb or loot everything in the area, turn loot into resources, use resources to get upgrade points or ammo/gear, kill all enemies, go to objective, rinse and repeat.

Not a terrible formula, but I enjoy the atmosphere of Bioshock games more than a scary space station.

This game is my shit because it's basically:

- Wake up in a spooky base
- Take your time checking out the cool environment, reading spooky notes and taking shit out of trash cans
- Recycle the trash can shit into cool weepon
- Shoot monsters from time to time but let turrets do the majority if the work if possible
- Repeat

Yeah it's straight up System Shock 2 / Bioshock but I'm cool with it, cloning that kind of game is hard as fuck anyway and nobody else seems to be doing it and it's included in Gamepass so I'm having a greeeeeat time

That being said I am 6 hours in and this game is still pretty stingy with the Neuromods. I've barely gotten any of the tech tree going and unless they open up the faucet I dunno what I'm gonna do

Just a heads up that there are achievements for not getting any upgrades and such - basically you will miss out on all the cool abilities and shit

Oh shit, they just added the Destroy All Humans remake.

I'd been eyeing buying that on Steam for a while. I never played the original and people seem to really like it and the remake seems a high quality effort. Will give this a try.

It's like GTA Mars Attack?

Yeah, the main thing is that it's a straight port, outside of the graphics, of the original. Which means sorta GTA III type clone in terms of design. It's got a lot of PS2-era legacy crap in the open world that other games have moved past.

For "free" though, I'd say check it out if you're interested. You can get a couple hours of it before it gets too repetitive.

Itís THQ doing a Mars Attacks version of GTA III on a THQ budget. It didnít grab me at the time.

Lego City Underground is a better tribute.

I started skipping the dialogue on the 2nd island. On the first island only the guy with the bowlcut had a strong accent. On the 2nd island it's everyone. It's just a pain to read, on top of being needlessly verbose.

'ang abaht? Spare me.

Another day one 3rd party game.  Just like outriders, itís an interesting game but not one I was willing to spend $60 on so this is perfect.  Gotta love gamepass.

I accidentally didn't check off autorenew and so got another month of Gamepass and haven't touched it in 2 weeks. I hadn't touched it in 2 weeks prior to that on a 99 cent month.

I did the 99Ę thing and then have renewed it 2~3 times now at full price just for State of Decay 2, which I could have just bought and own outright. Probably need to do that and then swing back to GamePass when it's cheap again.  :-\

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.
