Sweet, coffee talk on Xbox apparently supports keyboard, using a usb dongle based one. Pressing space to pass in game dialogue is easier than pressing A, IMO lol.

Coffee Talk and Opus are two great indies but overall kinda another lackluster month for AAA stuff though hopefully those surprises (likely coming at GamesCom) are AAA stuff
 
Ooh Coffee Talk is back! I played through it last time it was on Games Pass and really dug it. It's a chill game, which is more of a graphic novel with some gameplay peppered through it (making the right coffee, selecting responses for dialogue). Might not be for everyone, but I really enjoyed it.

Also the soundtrack is great!

I just watched an IGN preview of Midnight Fight Express and I’m in awe. Not sure why this never was on my radar.

Definitely a day 1 for me. Also looks like something that would rock on Steamdeck. Might check out Steam prices if reviews are great.

I've been counting down the days on this one since like E3 2021.

What Remains of Edith Finch and 12 minutes leaving ????
TERRIBLE month. TERRIBLE. One of the worst months ever.
i heard good things about edith finch but bad things about 12 minutes
so ur comment got me confused a bit

Ive heard good things about Fenyx Rising, too much backlog to play it but great add
The backlog is the biggest problem with Game Pass. I have a huge one. I'm currently playing Ghost Recon Wildlands and it seems to be a game that will take quite a lot of time to finish, but I think I will play Fenix next after I finish it because I meant to buy that game and never got around to it. Now that it's on Game Pass, I will make it a priority.

World War Z going :(

And this is probably what drives a portion of sales. When you get uses to these filler games and they go off gamepass. But I know it's only £20 now with GP discount so I'm likely to buy it as part of pick up and play games.

I didn't even get the chance to play Hades either but I will prob buy that at some point when I have free time.

Same will probably pick up WWZ for the collection.

Didnt care much for Hades but i know im in a huge minority there.

Why don't you play them before they leave? Or if you don't have the time you could buy with the usual discount subscribing to GP offers.

Hades leaving, guess all good things come to an end. Will pick up sometime on deep sales either Xbox, Switch or PC.

12 minutes is an absolutely fucking terrible game TBH.

I liked 12 minutes, I thought the loop concept was very well done. I'd like a longer game built on the same dynamic, a Quantum Leap game with the looping mechanic and maybe 5 or 6 "episodes" would be perfect.

I'll say the "big reveal" was painfully obvious before you got there, that was a bit of a fail.

For those considering it, like others have said, you can finish the game up rather quickly and outside of achievement hunting there isn't much replay value to it.

Coffee Talk is not to be missed. Honestly an excellent game. RIP to the dev too.

Immortals is fantastic.

Not a bad drop but would be nice to have something a bit more recent AAA wise.

Damn, gonna have to buy Hades, that game is just too good to lose. Might get Two Point Hospital also but maybe not with Campus here to fill the void.


Guess the PR peeps want some fun, no matter what it is in the end.
Now this is just irresponsible to joke about if there's no fire to this smoke. I would lose my mind if Death Stranding came to Xbox but I don't know how that'd even be possible (pretty sure Sony has ownership of the IP or at least some sort of claim to it?).

505 owns the PC version distribution rights. It's game pass PC, so if it is Death Stranding, it'll be on the PC game pass. Not console, unless Sony gets lenient.

Death Stranding comin to PC Game Pass is wild. I can't wait to read the thread on here when that's announced lol.
There will be people who will probably say the game is great now, and there will be a ton who will say its a bad game now and it's a old shitty one.

*if* it is coming at all, I'm gonna have to imagine it's the new directors cut with the extra content.

as a PC person who played the game just 2 weeks ago, its an AWESOME game. one of the most unique games I've ever played. I DONT CARE about the critiques it got. it got me hooked in, and that's enough for me.. great story. I'd dare say, great gameplay. it is not that repetetive, game pacing is quite good, you keep getting new means of creating transportation routes and stuff.

. it will be a huge win if this ends up on PC game pass. will attract quite amount of PC people to the service. HOWEVER, they must coincide the release of DS (if it is real) with a REAL, observable improvement to the xbox app's responsiveness. if not, half the people will still moan about how the app is unresponsive when they try to download death stranding. not to mention, there is still the issue of a serious deal of people who have trouble with the app, whether it is about installation or launching games

for some mythical reason, the app always worked fine for me, but sadly not everyone is lucky as I am

Microsoft really should be giving a month’s notice for these and I don’t think it would kill them to do so. I read Spiritfarer is at least 25 hours to complete, and a lot of games are leaving.

Spiritfarer has been on there since Aug 2020, Hades and 12 minutes went on last Aug.

There's been plenty of time to play them (and still is) before they leave. If you want to get a jump start on next month look at Sept last year for a glimpse of games that might be leaving.

RIP as in the studio went bankrupt, or RIP as in somebody died?

Anyway, I knew holding out on Immortals would pay off.

Yeah I agree but I also realized very quickly that its just not possible to play everything that you want with game pass xbox and pc game pass even with advanced notice. There's just too many things to try. You really have to pick and choose sometimes especially with other life things going on. I usually can finish 4 games a month with game pass. I'm definitely getting my money's worth.

So you wouldn’t prefer a month notice to two weeks?
