Is Mega Coin Squad really that easy even though it's got a 2.0 ratio? Most of the games considered easy here are like a 1.5 or below
Well, yes and no. The entire game is RNG. You need to collect enough coins to complete the level but the coins and enemies all spawn randomly. Even your upgrades are random.
Once you get the hang of it it really isn't that hard. I found the no deaths run harder than the speedrun. You need to complete the game 6 times anyways so there's plenty of chances.

I’m not sure why the ratio is high. I mean it takes a little while,but really not bad at all. Actually enjoyed it for a bit. The multiple playthroughs get a bit tiring near the end, but definitely worth checking out. Definitely can knock it out over a weekend! Might as well while it’s on gamepass toast

I got through to the second stage like level 2 and just couldn't get past it after numerous tries. Kept dying. Maybe I'm missing an easy move to use or something but the controls are a pain the ass to me. Switched to the final station and now I've been stuck at the same point for half an hour trying not to use a medkit and facing 10 enemies. Today is not my day for gaming I guess.

Just played through the base of The Final Station, I would highly suggest doing so before it comes off. Good stuff!

Is Sonic CD the unfinished but actually finished Sega Saturn game?
Sonic CD is the Sega CD/PC game. I think you might be thinking of Sonic Jam.

The Final Station was great, just tedious you had to learn melee + backpedalling. A ton of in game backstory hidden in it, though just how many times the DLC has you run thru it... TWD collection and Spyro reignited were 5k TA score for 3 games, TFS was 5k by itself for tedium, not even difficulty, still loved it.
Aven colony was fun, made me want to load up a Civ game, or Alpha Centauri tbh. Sad I'll need a disk to 100% it (update made lightning strikes not count) but really, the hardest part was remembering not to build too fast, thats it, really liked it.
I own SW and havent started it yet though I'll need to before 2 is in danger of going away, cant say Im upset over the other games though tbh never tried em so~

Thanks for the article. It's time to get fishing for me. I really wish they would announce these removals like 3 months in advance, but oh well.

Yes and no. 75% of the game is really easy. The last 25% requires knowing everything from A to B and be very fast. (You need to finish the game in under 30 minutes or so)

I finished the game with 850G in the bank and 2 achievements left.
(And some playthroughs as you finish the game with every character)

Annoying - literally downloaded massive chalice a couple of days ago and there's no way I'm gonna rush thru it. Let's hope it comes back on.

For everyone asking about unobtainables on Aven Colony, they patched the Lightening Strike one right at the end of last year. I got all the achievements on it with a digital copy with no problems once the lightening strike patch went in

Also agree on about the 15 hour mark for 100%, game is pretty easy all round apart from one mission.

It looks like Iron Brigade and Monday Night Combat are leaving as well.

Time to play through The Final Station and Mega Coin Squad before they come off Game Pass at the end of the month. Not looking forward to the no deaths run in Mega Coin Squad, though!

I just started it and I got the lightning achievement already.

Not a big loss but I'll be giving Aven Colony a go before it goes for sure!

I got shadow warrior with gold but having that removed i think lowers the quality of game pass.
