Dishonored 2 was fantastic and definitely the best add this round. That, the new Hitman games, and MGSV are the best stealth titles this gen.

Some really good games starting to show up on PC, I hope they keep it up as there are a lot more games I'd like to see.

Even at full price Gamepass has been worth the price. I haven't been paying full price yet and I've played through at least a dozen games I consider good games.

Do you need to play dishonored 1 before D2?
If you want to take interest in the story then it's probably mandatory. You can also have a lot of fun simply stealth killing enemies or experimenting with different powers, but it won't be the same experience.

To be honest, you probably don't need to but you should anyway. Dishonored 1 is a fantastic game as well.

Thanks for the reply guys.I got the first on PS4 but I read that if you kill to many people you get a bad ending and Im kinda bad at stealth games and killed a bunch of people right off the bat,lol. So I kinda gave up. But seeing how much people enjoy it,I'll give it another chance.

You don't need to kill anyone, you can put them to sleep with darts or strangle them when you're up close. That's the beauty of the game, there are multiple ways to do everything.

However, I found it to be a lot more fun killing people as all the best powers and equipment are for chaos kills.

Meh, the game is fun just playing how you want, there isn't some magical ending that changes the fun you had prior to the ending. Just play how you like. I played stealthy when it suited the situation and I enjoyed the game.
Looking forward to getting into the sequel, though this makes my backlog that much longer

Nice, new Vegas is going to get added. I wonder if it’s the vanilla version or the one with the dlc?

Pretty much every game on Game pass is vanilla. I guess the idea is to hook people on the base game in the hope that they'll spend extra on dlc.

Lonely Mountains Downhill

Take your bike on a thrilling ride down an untouched mountain landscape. Make your way through thick forests, narrow trails, and wild rivers. Race, jump, slide, and try not to crash – all the way from the peak to the valley! Explore rocky mountain slopes with your bike, jump over sandy gorges or find your way through the foggy forests. Each mountain awaits you with new challenges to find your own way to the finish line.

Minit

A peculiar little adventure played 60 seconds at a time. Journey outside the comfort of your home to help unusual folk, uncover countless secrets, and overcome dangerous foes, all in hopes of lifting a rather unfortunate curse that ends each day after just one minute.

The Outer Worlds

The Outer Worlds is a new single-player first-person sci-fi RPG from Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division. Lost in transit while on a colonist ship bound for the furthest edge of the galaxy, you awake decades later only to find yourself in the midst of a deep conspiracy threatening to destroy the Halcyon colony. As you explore the furthest reaches of space and encounter various factions, all vying for power, the character you decide to become will determine how this player-driven story unfolds. In the corporate equation for the colony, you are the unplanned variable.

Take on the role of journalist Richard Nolan, as well as five additional playable characters, and use deduction skills and research to reconstruct Richard’s past.

Afterparty came out yesterday.

I just sat down to check it out and there's a power outage on my street. My phone's almost dead. I don't know what to do :messenger_loudly_crying:

I highly recommend World War Z, first game I bought at EGS and still my most played to this day, its just simple fun, if you love Zombies like I do, you will love WWZ too.

Game is selling well, but it's hard to determine its actual success due to GamePass and the fact that while physical sales are down in the second week, it's because retailers understocked on the game.

So, its nice to hear Microsoft seems happy with it.
