I never really poo pooed Gamepass, but it took awhile before it was a good enough deal for me to spend money on. Basically, I picked up Gamepass when a MS game I was going to buy regardless became available. From that point on, I've played enough Gamepass games that it has been good. My wife plays even more Gamepass games. The number of games we've bought have plummeted, but I think we play more games now.

For one, my wife has zero interest in really shopping for games. Everything she plays is what my daughter or I recommend, and that's been fine. But after I showed he how to browse the Gamepass, as well as EA Access and the Games for Gold libraries (MS has really nailed their game storage with different sections like this), she now picks more of her own games, and finds stuff I would have never known about, but which she likes.

For families and people that like the idea of gaming, but don't want to invest so much time and money into finding games, Gamepass if like dream. It's a set cost, and you can just enjoy the games you play. Parents can buy a new Xbox for Christmas, and the kids will have over a hundred games to play from a cheap Gamepass investment.

This game (Swimsanity) is a knockoff of Rare's Jetpack on the X360. It's an underwater version. It's fun and challenging, has a single player and multiplayer modes. It's part of this months Gold games.

The EA Play for PC is coming later. Do you have EA Play for both console and PC?

Thanks. I missed the December date. Thought it was all switching in November. Thanks again.

Yeah, that was a game I waited and waited on to come to GamePass, but finally bought 6 months ago on a sale because I gave up on it coming.

Then I spent all of 15 minutes playing it. That is why I should stick with GamePass.

And, by the way, Tetris Effect: Connected is still bloody brilliant.

I'm early on and really enjoying Control so far. Has an X-files vibe to me and the gunplay is fine. I hadn't read much on the plot, so I'm looking forward to how the story of the "oldest house" unfolds. Been actually reading the collectable notes along the way for clues.

I didn't want to like Control, as I'm usually just a military shooter guy. But I tested it the other night, and I was still playing after 90 minutes.

It's not great, but it's a nice change of pace from my usual lineup. Pretty cool vibe and some interesting mind-f*ck scenes.

Plan to dig in deeper.

I don't have a PC and am not interested in the Ultimate Game Pass.

But if I get the regular 'console' game pass, does that not include XBL along with it?

Game Pass Ultimate includes XBL and EA Play. If you have XBL already then it "should" convert it to GPU.

So finally bit the bullet and signed up, 3 months for $1 deal. They threw in another 2 months. Not sure why. But I got the gamepass ultimate now until June all for $1. Sweet.

I don't have a PC. Are there extra games they have on PC that are not on XBO?

Yeah they do. You can get them 2 ways. You can get them from the Windows 10 game store or thru the Xbox Game Pass mobile app. As far as PC games go, there's all the Age of Empires and Microsoft Flight Simulator and non Microsoft PC games.

Um there is a dedicated app for the PC Gamepass and it works great. I've never once had to go to the God awful Windows Store.

Strong lineup of new additions coming this month to GamePass: https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2021/02/16/ ... 21-wave-2/

DIRT 5 (that didn't take long), Elite Dangerous and Wreckfest are among the highlights for me, even though I already own Elite: Dangerous!

PC games should take a look at Superhot Mind Control Delete. It's such a cool, mind-bending, refreshing take on first-person shooters. One of the most unique games I've played in years.

It's because it's terrible. Oh how far has the DiRT franchise fallen. Played for a few hours and haven't touched it since. Xbox Series X enhanced and all. Yawn. It's not even a rally game anymore, which is a shame. But I guess that was to be expected when they made an actual rally racer.

I tried Wreckfest on the PC and didn't like it at all. Superhot IIRC has been on GP for some time and I did like it but it gets tough pretty quick.

I tried Wreckfest on an Xbox Live free play weekend. Was OK but not deep or fun enough to justify $30. But free? Yeah, it will get fun in a hurry.

That's my same vibe with DIRT 5. I would NEVER pay for it, as I agree with DB that the DIRT franchise is slowly flushing down the bowl. The last good DIRT game (not DIRT Rally) was DIRT 3. But free? I'll find some fun with it, especially when I'm f*cked up and just want to throw some cars around.

It is a warehouse simulator so you get a bunch of products constantly in and then have to organize them (whatever way you want) and then have to deliver and it keeps on coming with more different products. It has up to 200 items and trying to find where you stored them is amazing.

Wilmot's Warehouse is a cool little niche title. To me it is pretty chill and helps with my OCD as well.
