    Somehow never did around to Graveyard keeper, even though it was in my list of games to select next for over a year. I'd be upset with myself more for not playing it, but in the end I didn't start it recently since My Time at Portia is within the same genre and been great fun.
    So you can make burgers with human meat and extract human organs in my time at Portia and burn dead bodies you mutilated during the autopsy? I'll take 2 of those burgers by the way.

    Sad to see Graveyard Keeper leave (I haven't played it, but have had it downloaded since it first popped in to GP), which seems to be the early consensus here on TA. If the pricing isn't too bad with the GP discount, I may buy it, as I have about $10 in rewards credit to use... Hmmm....

    And nothing of value was lost. Though wasnt graveyard keeper just recently added ? Feel like it was.
    A year ago
    Problem with GK is the HORRIBLE framerates and hiccups. I love the game for what it is, a dark version of Stardew Valley, but holy hell, it becomes impossible (okay, not literally) to play with hiccups every 20 seconds. I would buy it if it were fixed, but I doubt that'll happen seeing how PC still has these issues.

    Hey TA staff, is there any way we can add the "date added into Game Pass" for the list of games that are in Game Pass?? This would be very helpful to me and many others who are always scrambling to play the games that are leaving.
    Agreed, adding this information to the “Game Pass Games” page would be awesome.

    Awww, I'm going to really miss Graveyard Keeper. One year wasn't enough with that one.

    3 of them were former GwG so that's a plus, I suppose... I already own Toy Soldiers as well.

    Will play through Monday Night Combat since it's fast, but will pass on the other 4.

    Hey guys. I'm still quite new to Game Pass, so how long does it usually take for a game to leave the program? Is there a set time limit for all games or it depends on a game?

    Most games that have left usually leave they've been in the pass for a year. Depends on the deal the game worked out.

    I really love Game Pass and the games leaving this month is no big deal but...I really think 2 weeks notice is not enough time. They should give us a months heads up at least.

    Castlestorm is a fairly enjoyable game, just finding someone for the online is a painsmile

    Whoa getting som Déjà vu vibes here, I wonder why?

    Xbox Game Pass Dashboard Indicates 12 Titles Will Be Removed in March
    Weird, did the repeats never get removed or did they all just come back?
    It's somewhere between rare and uncommon for games to be announced as leaving, but then never leave. Presumably has a lot to do with previous announcements being automated to a degree (showing up on the dashboard 14 days prior to removal), while the related parties were simply still working on terms of the continuation.

    I believe they switched to blog postings for the month (don't see the source in this article), but that to is likely automated to a degree so the same issues could still emerge.

    I see. Thank you!

    MNC is the only thing for me. But I figured I'd rather just wait for the next BC sale and get it dirt cheap so I can use my 360 and not have to set up some sessions for the game.
