They should add Tekken 6 to the roster soon, Tag 2 was mostly the reason I kept buying Game Pass...
Tag 2 can be owned for $20. 6 is $15.

I appreciate the advanced warning on these removals. Compared to digital games just being delisted from the store and finding out about it afterwards, it's nice to have a few weeks to do something about it.

Time to finish off The Bridge, I'm at 235/1000.

TBF I basically used Game Pass as a premium demo service, if I could do it in the alloted time then great, but I wasn't scared to buy at the reduced cost. Unfortunately, for me personally, I couldn't warrant it with the amount of games I already owned. I might take up the service again, but for now I'm happy with the games I have to work through and the Games With Gold program. I feel like too many people expect it to be a subscription based unlimited gaming service which just isn't possible with any entertainment sub-industry; NetFlix, crunchyroll, hulu, spotify spring to mind.

Is it worth to launch The Bridge now ?
I quite enjoyed what I played of this - seems like it would be simple enough with a guide too.
Without a guide I would have never finished. With a guide I did it in under 8 hours.
I used a guide, took exactly 6 hours for me in total.
Man this one frustrated me. Still missing two. Followed the guide to a T. For some reason the missing wisp isnt in the location the guide shows. Apparently im not the only one that ran into it. Not sure if its worth going back just for two cheevos, hmmm? First world problems 🤣

Why are games coming and going on xbox pass anyway?? I can't make sense of it.
I PLAY TO HAVE FUN!!!! I do tend to play solo most of the time but always willing to play with others if they have time for that of course. TA ROCKS!!

Because publishers/Microsoft make a deal to include the game in Game Pass for X amount of time and if that deal isn't renewed they leave.

10 Second Ninja and The Bridge were added a year ago, so looks like they just made a deal for a year.

PES 2018 was only added a few months ago, so they possibly had a 3 month deal.

The rest were OG Game Pass titles, so they've been in for 15 months. They possibly originally signed on for a year and renewed their deal for another 3 months.

The Bridge is one of the first games I downloaded. It is a fun puzzle game. I didn't get all achievements but was satisfied with the time I put into it.

Spotify is kind of an exception to your point, since it more or less is a subscription based unlimited music service. Very few notable things are missing from the library, new things are very quickly added most of the time, and things are very rarely removed. Otherwise your point stands and largely applies to me as well :)

Pacman & Galaga are the losses for me,

So probably will wait to see them on sale next week

Most of these games if not all go on sale a lot of times for pretty cheap.

Plus you still got 2weeks to try and complete it

Those who want to complete The Bridge before it exits, it's not that difficult. I bought it last year on sale and, while using the walkthrough to complete it, beat it in just over 4 hours. I'm sure this will differ by skill level but it shouldn't take you more than 8, and it's a fun and unique puzzle game.

How long do the PES servers stay up anymore? Could have been a deciding factor with the game pass "lease"

I don't think so, knowing Konami's habits servers will probably close mid-2019. That's why I've just focused on the online achievements before it is removed, game will be dirt cheap by the time I motivate myself to go for the SP completion.

Thought I had to rush to complete The Bridge, been meaning to play it for a while. Realized that I purchased it at some point, if it wasn't for TA game collection tracking, I wouldn't know what I have, Hah.

Still, think it'll be my next completion. Just needed a nudge.

10 Second Ninja is a truly fantastic title, definitely doable in 2 weeks, solid game-play with a sweet story, I even bought the official soundtrack. Highly recommended. (I'm too old to 100% it, reflexes not what they used to be!)

The Bridge on the other hand is not. I thought it was one of the worst games I've ever played. And I love slow, artistic, deep games.

The Bridge was a fast and easy completion with guides if you get stuck; I did it in 4.5 hours. Galaga Legions DX was fairly quick and easy (except for the timed boss rush). SoulCalibur II is pretty easy but takes about 8-10 hours (which is definitely doable). The last game I'll try and complete is 10 Second Ninja X. It's actually really fun so far, and it's not as frustrating as it looks. I'm sure that last achievement will be a pain in the butt though...

As for the other games, I'll ignore them for now.

This is why I've cancelled my Game Pass subscription - with the amount of time I have for gaming, I just couldn't get games finished before they removed them. It's a pity, because it seemed to offer nice value-for-money when I signed up, but completion times can be an issue.

6 of the 7 games being removed have been in the pass for at least a year.
