Played Tell Me Why, not normally my type of game but i thought i'd give it a whirl and I've quite enjoyed it to be honest. I like the story and setting. Looking forward to the next episode this week (i think).

Makes me angry to want to buy the console, the game pass and then see how they spend money developing pc-only games. In a couple years, what will be the reason to buy a Series X if all the series X games and more are available on PC, if gamepass is better on PC than on series X and if PCs at the time are more powerful than the console?
I am a console guy but it seems that MS will get rid of it. Also Sony will probably go to the same direction. It is a shame
The only games that come to mind that are only on PC so far are Gears Tactics and Flight Sim. Both of which are coming to console. Its possible there are more but your fear is really unfounded in any real capacity.

Have you actually looked at the game list? There are only a handful of PC games that don't exist on console, most of which wouldn't work well at all or would require a TON of re-work due to controller only.
You could build a decent PC then have the best of both worlds, or buy a used one for dirt cheap and again stop being a gaming peasant and have access to everything that interests you.

In theory yes,they have announced in july the complete edition with dlc on gamepass, but i don't know if it's already this version or the base game
I haven't read the article, just watched the pic

Base game is already free and they announced the new DLC that hits this fall is included as well so I have to assume this is everything up till this point, but I am not going to pretend I know Bungee's confusing stance on these things sometimes.

That is a pretty hefty line up for PC right there. Maybe I will consider hopping into disgaea 4 again. CK3 is a guarantee for GP for me

If I need to buy a PC for gaming and all xbox games are on PC... why do I want an xbox?
There are only a couple now ,but it could be a start. Will there be more and more games coming out on PC first and then ported to the xbox? Will some of this games not come to the box ever?

Then dont buy an xbox and play it on PC. Microsoft makes money on software, not hardware. And they have said they are committed to having everything as much as possible be on both. I mean if they are putting Flight Sim on Xbox I tend to think they will port everything else.

Cost of entry is lower, in case you are budget constraint, you will just have to deal with the fact that some PC games just don't work on console so you will miss out.
Even playing field for MP games
Easier configuration, simplified setup
Integrated voice comms that EVERYONE already has
HDR works out of the box

I have a very good PC and still have a oneX and am interested on a seriesX. I still play on my oneX a lot, mostly because my RL friends don't have gaming PCs and so it's much easier to game with them via consoles. If you don't have any friends and don't really like MP games then yeah PC makes a lot more sense, if you can get over the significant cost differential.

I am getting familiar with Destiny until something titalating makes it to the leaving soon category.

I completed RDR2 in 2ish weeks, cementing my place as a game pass legend. I dont have a huge friends list, but I was rank 2 in completion in that tight timeline. I am a hero of the last minute game pass crowd, and I invite you all to join me until the Series X releases and I can really get into some optimized games I've been sleeping on with my OG Xbox One (Outer Worlds, Destiny, No mans Sky, RE7, Halo replay, Ori 1 and 2). Life will be great.

If you are into stuff like Stardew Valley, don't sleep on Spiritfarer. Such a relaxing game, but loads to do. Has a lot of darkness lurking underneath that cute, harmless facade.

I loved stardew valley, but spiritfarer seems so... gay! I dont want to play as a chick running around doing favors for sexualized animals.

Do you find it better than stardew, in that case i might be willing to try it, but the artstyle is such a turn off.

It is not better, at least not objectively and I don't think the gameplay is as complex and varied, but I've been drawn to it for the last four days - there is something hypnotic and weirdly relaxing about it. I mean, you can try it out yourself - the first hour is a pretty good indicator of what to expect from the game.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

If you haven't played Tales of Vesperia before, now's your chance! Excellent game and the definitive edition adds a bunch of new content and makes the game play smooth as butter.

Also, Swords of Ditto is a fun little indie Zelda clone and definitely worth checking out.

Nope, these games are similar to Final Fantasy in that the world and characters are completely different for each entry. The Tales of... games are just just tied together with a few loose concepts - except for the occasional direct sequel like Tales of Destiny 2 or Tales of Xilia 2.

Have fun!

I'll add it to the que. Don't know when I'll get to it but I've always heard good things.

With the notable exceptions of the direct sequels (Destiny, Symphonia, and Xillia) you’ll be fine going in fresh. Kind of think Final Fantasy. There are small references throughout for fans, but you’re not missing anything vital when they happen.

I'd wait and see if the original ever becomes bc. I found the definitive edition to be terrible. Sure , it is smooth, but all the new content they added in from the ps3 version is just boring filler with a new and obvious voice actor for lead character, plus an annoying new character who adds nothing of value outside of squeaky voice.

I stopped playing because it kinda tarnished my fond memories.

even if they would add most new games or even all of them it would be not enough to pay this money monthly ,because froma those all new ones i will need just 3,4 games no more.
