    Overall what a good week, gamepass got some good games, Gamescom was awesome and a good game added for backwards compat. I think that all access is a really good deal. I would jump on it myself but I need to get a good tv to justify getting the one X.

    Cyberpunk looks amazing. I hope I'm not overawed by the size & scale of it. I loved the Witcher but it was so large I ended up never finishing it.

    Looking forward to Cyberpunk. I still haven't watched the entire gameplay video, but what I've seen looks great. Haunted Halloween helped me out with GTASC. Worth picking up for a quick gamerscore boost.

    I agree that Microsoft should get a guarantee that any paid updates also fix broken achievements. I'd like that for all updates, but that could discourage needed patches from indie developers. However, there was no excuse for Rocket League developers not fixing the achievements for multiple updates.

    On the subject of late TUs adding achievements etc:

    Rocket League: Adds new content, adds easy achievements relating to the content - just to let you familiarize yourself with the new additions and make sure you've seen it all yourself first hand.

    Gears of War 4: No new content. Achievements that revisit the same old content. Achievements that are not retroactive. Achievements that are a grind.

    The two couldn't be more different. Rocket league does everything right, Gears does everything wrong.

    As a "completionist", I also sometimes find myself being "forced" to play games past where I would have preferred to stop (Gears of War 4 is the pinnacle of that). When I feel that way, I typically feel like the game design choices were made to give the appearance of content but add no actual value. I think the problem is saying "forced" when really what you are saying is, unlocking them feels like a chore rather than fun.
    I recently felt that way when playing Mafia 3 DLC. It felt like the objectives were always purposefully placed on the opposite end of the map and with no fast travel, most of my time was spent just driving from missions to missions. The DLC took 3-4 hours, but probably only had 1-2 hours of actual content.
    I think "New Game Plus" will often feel that way as well. A few minutes of coding to allow you to import a character at the beginning and suddenly the developers can claim 20 hours of extra content. In some few games I think New Game Plus can make sense, but generally speaking, I don't think it adds anything of value to most games. That's when achievements for NG+ start to feel like a chore.

    Any half decent podcast app should be able to use the feedburner link.
