Shenmue 1/2 is now on Windows store and included. Can’t tell yet if there’s a seperate achievement list because the club isn’t working but looking promising

What’s weird is it wanted me to install an insider build to play

Signing up through windows store isn’t live yet
This reminds me of how much I hate the Windows store.

I currently have Windows Updates set to block any new version of Windows, as the latest version breaks Forza Horizon 4. You just don't get this nonsense with Steam for example.

It seems the major publishers are shunning the Windows store. Resident Evil 7 came out on it, but RE2 remake didn't, so I got it on Steam instead. Same with DiRT Rally 2.0.

I dont know why existing subscribers gets nothing always. After all they are supporting all your initiatives right from beginning. Ideally existing users should get first month for free on pc. Instead they are not even offered the 1 dollar promo and have to pay full price. Totally illogical
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Available For All – And 1 Month is £1/$1/€1 - get Ultimate for £1 and it'll apparently update all of your existing subscriptions to the same offer.
Thanks will check it out

I'm getting pretty frustrated. It wants me to get an insider build of Windows but it won't recognize that I have signed up for it. It keeps wanting me to register.

I'm assuming games like Wolfenstein II which isn't play anywhere, won't have achievements on the PC version? Does anyone know how those games work achievement wise? That's what I'm more interested in for pc game pass, otherwise I see myself mainly sticking with xbox game pass.
Assume no more.

Wolfenstein II PC Achievements Revealed, Available Now in Xbox Game Pass for PC
Yeah, came back to this article when I saw the one posted on the home page. I'm just wondering now if all the pc games will get separate achievement list.

There’s nothing wrong with the windows store. PC game pass went live early and everything isn’t quite propagated yet

Wow...

I got the £1 for 3-months promo offer for Game Pass in May, plus 12 months of Live.

Just paid another £1 for Ultimate Game Pass and am covered until September 2020.

That is insane value!

Both games BSOD my PC after I select them in the launcher, so there's no way for me to tell if they implemented achievements. I fully updated so IDK if this is a Sega mess up or something else since I've booted up other games in the games pass selection just fine.

This is what im screaming! Kinda mad they get it and we don't, like what are we chopped liver? lol
laugh hopefully it's just a matter of time.
It is available on Xbox as well, at least it seems to me. Search for it in the store, I can install it.

I installed that update but it seemed to cause issues with my video card as it wouldn't detect the driver. I had to revert back to the previous update but not sure if anyone else is getting this issue?

I'm on the latest version of Windows 10 but it's not letting me install any of these new games. I keep getting an 80070005 error. Anyone else getting this too?

Well after finding out that I keep getting bluescreens because the game hated that I had another game in my DVD drive (Yay crappy Japanese PC ports!), I got the same result, got a pop but nothing on my tag. Sega or MS must of not uploaded the list. Either way confirmed stack.

Edit: Problem came back, IDK at this point lol.

Does anyone know if you can set a "home" PC like you can with the Xbox so anyone else who plays on the PC can play the games too?
