I'm psyched to play Hypnospace, I'm surprised that got console ports.

I wish Resident Evil 7 had VR support on PC, can't help but feel no matter where I play it it'll be inferior to PSVR.

In my opinion for the price gamepass on pc is a bargain of a deal.
It better than a bargain it like basically stealing with Flight Sim, Battletoads, Wasteland 3, and Crusader Kings day 1 on it amazing that like 4 60 dollar games each right there and countless other.

I didn't realize Wasteland 3 was that close. Can't wait to play it. Some other good games coming too.

I think This is Biohazard's 2nd appearance, I seem to remember playing it with my 1st GP trial, I know I never bought it so it had to be GP.

If I see (new) multiplats on gamepass, I take it as "our game isnt worth of more than few cents -devs". So game must be bad and not worth to buy for PS4.

Because if they would think that their game is good, they would not give it away for almost free on launch.

So, time to wait until used one is 5€ or less.

Most of these are older games so those I understand.

New games = same as adding a movie in netflix on premier show night

This is a really good list. I'm actually wanting to clear out what I'm currently playing so I can get cracking on these.

I'm definitely going to download New Super Lucky's Tale, I enjoyed the original one on Xbox One. The best thing about Xbox Game Pass is there's too many day one games that releases on the service from Indies to triple A games.

Microsoft slipped up. They say New Super Lucky's Tale is headed to Game Pass for PC
The problem is that no PC version of the (new) game is known to exist.

Gamepass for the PC is the new Steam Sale, except it happens every month: you never know what games you’re going to get, but they’re usually pretty good and you end of saving a huge amount of money.

Capcom must be seeing some good returns on GP. Them along with Square Enix I feel like have had most of their library on GP.

You mean the return of that check they get from MS. If you have GP, why would you buy the game?

I saw some of these on the Nintendo Direct today and thought they looked awesome. I’m glad I have the chance to try them on GamePass before I pick them up.

Some solid games here. Microsoft Flight Simulator scoring a 94 Metacritic must be a nice little morale-boost at the company after so many “meh” first-party studio games, lately (Bleeding Edge LMAO).

Also looking forward to trying out Darksiders Genesis on GamePass — probably the best month for PC GamePass ever.

Downloading Spiritfarer as I type. Now maybe I can finally stop playing that damn Undermine game. Should be called Undergrind and I keep thinking just one more run, just one more run.

I dont own an Xbox.

I just sub to 36 months GPU to show my support for great value. I hope the Live Gold digital cards trick, will still work after 3 years.

Thanks to MS flight 2020, let's see what's the hype.

Im all in for Phil now. :messenger_peace:

Yow, not really sure where I'm gonna find all the time to play those. Ultimate keeps on delivering

The strange thing tho is that I was told gamepass was only AA type titles not even worth playing. Was I lied to or something?

Yes.....even coming from a PCMR user.

All, stop being a fanboy and join the GPU wagon. It is crazy value, lock that down for 36 months and you are half done for next gen.

There is no place for console wars, it is all Gamepass Ultimate future. 🤷‍♀️

I'm not a fan of game pass taking over the console experience. Kinda seems like microsoft is more interested in pushing the service over their actual games and system.


With that said. I just subscribed for my pc. I have a few year old pc and dont really use it much but for 5 bucks a month. I'll totally try this out. Kinda excited to try gears tactics, battle roads, and some flight simulator.

Who cares if they keep putting compelling games on the service? Personally I couldn't care less if they ever made another great first party title. If gamepass keeps getting great games I'm happy, I'll just buy a ps5 as the exclusives machine.

Spiritfarer is surprisingly good so far, just a chill little exploration game. I got Microsoft Flight Simulator downloaded but haven't had the time to jump in. Again, solid-ass month with even more games coming.

I’m sorry but what type of service do you think Game Pass is? Hint: it’s in the name.

Amazing that a topic about game pass adding new games can’t even escape the Sony trolls (not specifically talking about the quotes posts either).

GamePass is getting out of hand, they are just adding too many new games. Its really unbelievable that its this cheap to get access to these games, people are really missing out on something amazing.

I'm sorry, are we supposed to pretend those are AAA games? Wasteland 3? Battletoads?

Gamepass/subscriptions is making disc drive obsolete.

Gamepass let Xbox make a play for next gen at a lower price point and yet avoids becoming a console for playing just the exclusive games.
Gamepass is viable for them and value for us. win-win.

Wasteland is being priced like a AAA game on Steam.

Unless it's D:OS level of quality it's not going to sell very well long term at that price.
