Short notice, but nothing to be bothered about on the list.
See You Space Cowboy...

It says underneath every title "available until ??/??/??"

As good a time as any for you lot to play Lumo. Great game.

Two months in Gamepass and a 12-days warning is just ridiculous, to such an extent that I will probably resell the 3 months subscription I got with my console.

Shame to see Lumo go earlier than I expected. Its well worth a try now and can definitely be completed before it is removed. The ratio isn't as daunting as it seems, its just a bit fiddly as it has loads of missables that you need to quit the game and reboot if you fail to get them. Great guide on the site that covers all that is needed.

Just three months is kind of a disappointingly short amount of time for those titles to be available.

I would hope that stuff would stay on there six months at a minimum, any shorter and it starts to feel like a free sample service rather than an instant game library.
but that could be an effective business strategy for the developer. the aim would be to put the game on XboxGamePass for a short amount of time, get people interested or hooked, and then quickly pull the game from GamePass, hoping the hook sunk in, thus requiring gamers to buy the game.

Do you like Netflix? Hulu? Unless your answer is a big NO, then please shut up. The fact people can’t underatand the service makes me wonder what the IQ of these people are.

Know what’s great? Old stuff leaves so new stuff can cycle in. INSANE CONCEPT.

The comparison is just irrelevant. Most people can afford to take one hour each evening to even vaguely watch, let's say, a Walking Dead season within two weeks, while a game like NBA 2K17 requires some serious dedication to be completed. If you're unable to see the difference between a videogame and a TV show, you shouldn't care that much about others' IQ.

If you can't see the glaring difference between watching a 1hr throwaway TV show and investing time into a 40+ hour game then talking about other people's IQ seems a bit silly.

Besides it's purely my subjective opinion on the service and the fact that it doesn't match up with yours is irrelevant. They're both valid opinions.

If you care about completion percentages and haven’t started WWE 2K17 yet, don’t. I like to consider myself one of the best people in the world at that game and it’s still a tedious grind.

Also NBA 2K17 has been uncompleteable since like Day 1

I would assume that MCC will arrive once 343 release the new patch that's meant to fix everything.

How could you possibly miss the point so damn bad? It’s not about games vs tv/movies. It’s about subscription services and how they function lmao. Wow. The IQ insult is cute too since you don’t seem to know how to get a point.

With that said, if you’re waiting until delisting announcements for a subscription service you probably aren’t using it right.

It’s nice that you copy and pasted your friend, but the reality is that this wasn’t games vs tv/movies. It was the basis of how subscription services work. Missing the point that bad is hilarious. These games are also on here for months, so even if we use your example, you are wrong.

Lumo is a gem, highly recommend this one. Don't care much that it's leaving game pass though as I bought it day one.

Three relatively impossible completions leaving with way too short of a notice. Love it.
