    Can't wait for FM2020. Hope the Xbox Live port of it will be better than last years. It took a long time to bring in basic features, with a lot of achievements being broken for a while.

    just bought Journey yesterday because sale was about to end...I don't know why but somehow I could see this happening dance

    guess this means two things:

    game is meant to have a special place in my heart

    probably I won't be able to pick up code vein

    Well, I'd rather have Savage Planet than Tomb Raider, Prey, Shenmue, Lego Worlds, Cities Skylines and Vampyr combined, since I've already played or have no interest in them.

    It's all subjective...

    Ah, one of those Kemco RPGS huh? Been keeping an eye on those, to see if they ever get cheaper than half off, so far no dice, so this is welcome news.
    Did you miss the Korean free GWG? Its been three months already that kemco rpgs have been used to replace games over there... you can just go to the korean store and get them. So far Asdivine Hearts 1 & 2 and Revenant Saga have been offered.

    Hmm, isn't that against the MS ToS? I know people were banned in the past for doing that, getting other region's GWG.

    If you haven’t played it, you can get a refund. If you have, I believe they still can do it dependent on your playtime. Wanna say it has to be less than an hour or two. Not 100% sure on the exact amount of game time sorry. Definitely worth checking, so you can use that money towards the other game ya want. toast

    I knew Journey to the Savage Planet was gonna land on gamepass sooner or later glad i held off from buying it
    Gamer for life Fan of games not plastic boxs

    Awesome, was just about to buy Journey and Stranger Things. Glad I don't have to know!

    I've been trash at actually playing Game Pass games lately but I'm so glad this service exists. It's so nice.

    I suppose Vampyr is not worth replaying if already played 100%, but there is certainly no end to Cities Skylines or Lego Worlds.

    If you played Cities (or Lego Worlds) created something like this?:

    Now that is a true achievement!

    Is that really true? I hear those claims from time to time but no proof.

    We've had Surge2 and Nier automata or whatever and those 2 games are better than any game that has left GP in the last 2 months. I pay full price for GPU and consider it unbelievable value for money at £11 a month ;) Cheap bastards! :P

    Yeah, I had a friend get a temp ban IIRC, they removed the other region games from his account at least.

    I've not heard of people having issues with changing regions to get GwG; the main issue comes with changing regions and then using a VPN or false billing credentials to get the games. Changing store region with the built-in tools on the Xbox One is not against ToS to the best of my knowledge, but using a VPN to access XBL or using false account info has always been.

    Nier Autmata too good for game pass, worth the purchase.

    I am Still playing first Surge, Surge 2 will probably be gone before get to it, so that is going to have to be a purchase.

    Kingdom Hearts 3 was good too, but that will be gone before play through 1.5 and 2.8 before its gone, and that will be a purchase.

    I just get ultmate with reward points, so does not cost anything really, if it did would not be worth it as dunno when all these will leave, and 2 weeks is not enough.

    I enjoy playing bought games or games in PS Now with long warnings of departure as you can choose which games to play in the service and which ones to buy but I feel stressed playng games on game pass, and end up having to buy all of them.

    If I do not start Savage planet then I may not buy it, but if I start it and do not finish it before it leaves, then I will have to buy it.

    I lost confidence in Game Pass when Cities Skylines and Lego Worlds left same time. Cities Skylines was in there 2 years yet Lego Worlds was 6 months. The time frame frames are too unpredictable, and I think some games have only been there a month.
