Tunic is in the runnings for top games of 2022 for me so I'm more than happy with that, I'll remember it for years. Incredible game imo.
Yeah its awesome. And its the first game that Ive played entirely on cloud on my phone and its worked out really really well. I was expecting issues with the combat but its been super smooth, boss fights and combat feel great.

Wasnt there something about being able to play your own games over cloud? Or is that only at home? Im dying to play some Elden Ring on the go.

I need to get through Sniper Elite 4 before the sequel.

I don't think these games really have much of a connecting story tissue between games (not that I've ever noticed any lol) so at this point I'd just wait so you don't feel over saturated in similar content.
 
Again garbage, they clearly blew their load with GOTG and Total war. Why would you not just allow a game to be on all the gamepass versions. I would consider playing F1 but it's only on console and cloud...
Yeah its an ass month but regarding F1, that is down to EA and the fact they want to sell a premium subscription on PC.
 
Every 2 weeks I read some stupid things like....
-Worst Month ever
-Medicore Games
-Indi Pass
-shovelware

WTF is wrong with those Guys🤷‍♂️
You paying 14,99 for A month and get Games for more than over 100 dollars every Month.
Sure not every Month is for everyone but that's the time you can play you Backlog or cancel your subscription.
It's so Easy to do but some people must hate everything🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️
 
Tough crowd.
You guys seriously have everything played that you want to play on Gamepass already? I look at it as a long list of stuff that I don't have time for the way it is.

I can understand that view point, but I’m not going to NOT say that I think a drop is poor simply due to good games from past drops. I think it’s good to give credit when it’s due for great announcements and then a thumbs down when underwhelming. Because otherwise, what is there even to talk about in these threads?

Yeah I've completed them all.

The only real connection is they are all related to WW II and that


you always kill Hitler in every one of them.

Such a bad month, they had to announce Assassin’s Creed Origns 2 months early 😂
I’m still looking forward to it though, as long as it comes with a nice 60fps patch. It’s the only one of the new ACa that interests me as I hear Odyssey and Valhalla are super bloated.

Don't underestimate how much time many people have to game. I know people with over a thousand hours in a 2 month old GAAS game (Lost Ark). If you stay on top of new releases that you are interested in, a back-catalog of games isn't going to really do much for you. I game maybe 20 hours a week at most and even someone like me only found about 5 old games from Gamepass that I was interested in but hadn't played yet.
 
I want more Paw Patrol games on GPU.
It sounds like you jest, but I have friends with very young children. It's nice to have something to keep their attentions held when they come over.

Nobody wants to deal with bored children, especially little 5 year old hellions that will make their own fun with my easily breakable shit.

I think you can stream from your own Xbox to the app, but unless it's over a good local Wi-Fi I really don't think it would be a good experience out and about, if that's even possible.

I definitely remember ACG saying something when he was on Defining Duke about playing modded Skyrim in bed with one of those Switch-style phone controllers.

I bet many of these people pay $100/mth for a cable tv package with 100 channels and barely watch it.

Just a lot of Concern ™

Folks forget so quick that we had Life is Strange and a day 1 MLB The Show less than 2 weeks ago, along with other understated bangers like Lost in Random etc. (and motherfuckin' Cricket '22).

Man, what a shitty month. MLB, Life(time movie) is strange, Bugsnax are mediocre. Hope Norco and... Norco? is good. Not every month should be a winner. Still plenty of stuff in the backlog.

Playing devils advocate here, they are just expressing their opinion on the games that are being added. I don't see the harm personally or why that's stupid, it's just their own individual take on a public forum.

The same thing happens with PS+ and games with gold threads.

Like you said, the offerings can't satisfy everyone all the time.

I am not joking, i love dogs, i really want more Paw Patrol games on GPU.

Alright, looks like there's a solid Ubi + Game Pass rapport starting to be built.

Hopefully AC Origins release coincides with the 60 FPS patch.

Amazing news. The more studios onboard the better.

April was another solid month overall with MLB, F1, LISTC, etc. Quite a bit of variety this month.

Seven Days to Die, the awesome game that you and your friends take all sorts of time to build an awesome hideout,only to have it disappear via game breaking glitch that lazy devs refused to fix.

One of the weirdest games I've ever played. Its like Blood Omen + Shadow of the Beast (GEN) + Shinobi (PS2).

One of the ugliest games I've ever seen. But I kinda love it lol.

When is Fifa 22 coming i heard it drop already but i check my gamepass and don't see it

Probably first drop of next month, the xbox.com page already has the EA play mentions on it, and it's been announced for PS+ as well. So makes sense it should go live on GP at the same time.
