ARGH! Just tried to play A Plague Tale but kept getting kicked out during gameplay because of a weak wireless signal. Kinda my wife's fault as she's streaming Netflix in the other room.

The game decides it needs to be always online. Was this Xbox's plan to get always online running? You know, Game Pass, sweeten the deal. "They'll take it if it's free!" That's why they did the one dollar deals.

I know I have a solution, I think, either make it my home Xbox or go wired. But the first, I already have another Xbox in the room (the kid's) as home Xbox, and I don't know if wired will fix it with the wife's interference.

I'm just kinda pissed that always online is a thing really. I thought the internet was meant to solve our problems, not make them shitter. Shit.

Games leaving game pass has brought a joy back to gaming. Finally, stakes!

Doea anyone know from history the time at which the June 30th games leaving game pass will be delisted?

I'm pretty far in Metro, already beat Steamworld Dig 2. Fantastic!

That's why I stopped game sharing with my buddy.

If you're game sharing with another console and have shit internet access...

I have heard that SC6 Online is dead. If it is true, putting the game on Game Pass is the right decision.

Played some SC6 this morning and it’s....different then what I remember SC to be.

This create a character and go questing mode is weird. I like the Geralt weapon style though.

Dead Rising 4 is on it's way out (last day is July 15th). I genuinely laughed for the first time at a video game within the opening 30 minutes.

Goddamn, 60 bucks and games reviewers really like to keep people away from some lighthearted games with solid gameplay.

Works fine with me. Have you updated the Xbox app? They released like 2 updates in the past month

Doesn't it update by itself? Nonetheless, I've downloaded the latest version and installed it, should be up to date.

This is what I'm seeing:






Edit: Huh. Out of nowhere, the app closed by itself and when I start it again, everything went back to normal. Weird timing but hey, not complaining.
