    Crap, guess I need to get as much as possible done on both Joe Dangers and CastleStorm. That's going to take most of my gaming time for the month ...

    I'm new to this GP thing, when EXACTLY do these games leave? The end of the month?

    In the middle of the month, it's written in the last sentence:

    Don't forget, these games will be gone from Xbox Game Pass by August 14th, so if you haven't had a go at them yet, now's the time to do so!

    Graveyard Keeper was a fun to play. Not sure about the rest though.

    I'll never understand the negative comments here. Sure these are old games, but many of them were critically praised at release and sold really well.

    Thanks, I was expecting them to leave on different dates from each other for some reason so was trying to find a date by each game redface

    I'm confused as well, CastleStorm and the Toy Solider games were great! Not played the others yet, but most of them were very well reviewed.

    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.
    Never had a single issue with GK. Though this is not the first time I've seen a complaint about framerates.

    Graveyard Keeper was awsome, hunters will love it as well I got 90% of the achievements in one play through without a guide so people who use guides will do it easy and quickly. I'm not gunna bother with the rest though idc about the achievs.

    I had a few drops in framerates here and there I think? But they were so trivial i'm not even sure about that, unplayable is a gross exaggeration in my experience.

    I think you are right, but there is a lot of crafting and farming style resource gathering and without a guide this will take longer than the 2 weeks that are left unless you just do nothing but play.

    There was a little bit of stuttering at the endgame when I had dozens of graves and items built but it didn't render the game unplayable.
    Always number 2.

    Anyone had issues with adding DLC to a BackCompat Game Pass game? I "bought" the free Spunky Cola Special DLC for Monday Night Combat. It doesn't show as Ready to Install when I manage the MNC files. The DLC adds new options for Private Matches, like controlling their length, which could make some of the achievements easier.

    Hmm, the Joe Danger games appear to be generally well regarded. Doesn't look like those are likely completable in a couple of weeks, however, due to difficulty.

    Has the TA ratio always been like that on Spelunky? Holy buckets...

    Graveyard Keeper was alright but the completion time is inflated quite a bit by the fact that most of the relevant NPCs only appear on a certain day (though I suppose everything that's remotely Harvest Moon seems to love doing that). If you want to play it I would suggest researching everything so you can be efficient getting achievements, unless you simply want to enjoy the game of course dance

    Graveyard Keeper is probably one of the best games I played on Games Pass

    For the delistings could we have an indication if it has previously been GWG.

    I'll have to see if it has improved, because it would freeze for 3 or 4 seconds every minute or so, pretty tough to stay immersed when that happens.

    Shit, graveyard keeper has been up on game pass for a year already? It really hasn't felt like that. Suppose I might return to it now and knock out some more achievements hopefully. I appreciate these removal notifications at the beginning of the month now but this half month stuff is still turning me off majorly...bleh. roll
