250 hours, that's impressive! But 760 people still 100% the game before you. There are 26 people that claim they completed the game in under 200 hours. Now we all know that is bullshit, but people love lying about their completion estimates on TA for some reason.

The fact they kept adding achievements that made you repeat what you had already done means anyone starting now will have to go through far less bullshit than those that started back in 2016.
Yeah I started after all the title updates were mostly done so I didn't have to repeat anything. And I did all the reups during the 6.66xp event so it took only about a week.

I'm curious, if I play the game more, will it also increase that time played counter on the list of gamers who beat the game? I would hope not but I bet it does. TA should save a snapshot of what your hours played was when the game was officially completed to get better estimates.

laugh Good for you mate. Made me chuckle.
No it’s this guy - Vitiated1's Game Collection

He completed it from start to finish in 7 weeks
How do you know how much time was played in those 7 weeks though?

It will.

It takes 200 hours just for Horde and RNG.

Ew, really?
If you get caught, yeah. The problem is people boost in ranked. And TC doesn't like people fucking around with ranks. It's understandable, but honestly with Gears 5 coming out soon, I don't think they give a shit about boosting anymore.
Well, then do not put in Multi Player achievements!

I didn't have any of these either. I knew FM6 would be GwG, so I waited and played the other Forzas that became free before.
I didn't start GoW4 because I still need to finish 1 and 3.
I was never really interested in Castlevania, but now that I looked at it I'm excited to play it.
And I have never heard of Torchlight, but it also looks amazing.

Happy Gaming

Why do this? Why give us shit for 7 months then give us 3 great games in one month? Games that most already own. At least I can now own Castlevania digitally.

I never bought any of these actually, mostly because I've been off-the-job four years now with a back injury so no cash flow, and also because I could never find a disc w/DLC copy of Lords of Shadow at my local EB's when I did have money, but at least now I can get a digital copy and get started. Don't really care for Gears 4 and Forza 6 though, Gears 4 was a yawn compared to the others (including Judgment), and I haven't done much in Forza since the second game over a decade ago. Wouldn't mind trying Torchlight though.

Best thing about this is that I might as well trade in my steelbook of Gears 4.

Just so you know, you do not own any Xbox One GwG you download. If you ever choose to get rid of your gold membership, you will lose access to any Xbox One GwG games you've downloaded. You do, however, get to keep 360 ones forever.

Without Gold Gears 4 isn't much of a game anyway.

This is probably the most solid line up they have had in months regardless of the inclusion of games from gamepass. Especially since you dont really own those game pass games.

This is impressive! They are giving Brazil Castlevania SOTN as extra this month!
They claimed the game wasn't rated, so it now can be added to the marketplace.

Konami is very lazy to never care to rate this game here.
And I wonder if Sonic Adventure and many others are not available purely because of rating... I doubt it's just that but whatever. compute
