    I might pick it up on a separate account to have a complete FH3 setup there.

    (do you know if you get to use GWG games from another account on your console if it is not actually that account that has the gold subscription? )
    Actually GwG games are yours to keep even if your gold expires.
    Actually the explanation of the home Xbox system is the most relevant response to the original posters query.
    https://beta.support.xbox.com/help/subscriptions-billing/man...
    That link does not explain anything either.

    I did not see in it that the gold had expired.
    All the discussion was around Xbox One, and XBL Gold having expired, and the link I provided explains that situation perfectly:

    What happens to my Games with Gold games if I cancel my Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription?
    On Xbox One, you’ll no longer be able to access your Games with Gold titles if you cancel your subscription. However, if you decide to renew your subscription at any time, you’ll be able to access and play your previously redeemed Games with Gold titles again.


    It was an interesting question - but taking out a Gold subscription does not give you access to any GwG already installed on your console. You have to renew the Gold subscription that installed those GwG games to regain access. It is the opposite for Game Pass. Any Game Pass games already installed on your console will be playable if you take out a Game Pass subscription.
    He is taking of ANOTHER account. It sounds to me he has a gold acount account and a silver account. He must get the GWG games on gold account as can’t get them on his silver account.

    The silver account can indeed play the GWG from the gold account as long the gold account is set as the home console or is logged in.

    The $20 Elite Dangerous super bundle from last week will last me well into the next gen, or at least until there are any other good sales.

    That was a hell of a deal.

    Keep getting notifications thinking it's someone suggesting for or against a game in the sale instead it's the same two going back and forth on who's right when the OP already said thanks and checked out. Coronavirus please go away, people have been locked up inside too long

    If I have Assassins creed origins on disc and only want the extra content whats my best choice here? The packs are so unnecessarily confusing.

    Also does anyone know the difference between Ass Creed Odyssey GOLD & DELUXE editions? if it's just cosmetic stuff does that cosmetic stuff have in-game benefits too?

    Thanks for help

    my bad I meant the Ultimate edition. I think that's what its called. Costs about £5 more.

    Initially decided not to pull the trigger on anything, but since Lumo was last on sale 3 years ago and made its game pass run, decided to pick it up. $6 seems like a solid deal.
    I was not 100% sure to buy Lumo. Read your post and will do the same now :)
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
    This game has an Equinox (snes) vibe that I really really like.

    Black Paradox and Kung Fu Kinect for me this week. BP looks like a reskin of Steredenn with some friendlier elements for low skill people like me. laugh

    How did this game get 29% when some other games like Deployment, Awesome Pea, Ice Age 3, Surfs Up got higher? Those games ain’t easy when Riverbond was SO easy.

    I take it back, I am as bad or worse at this than Steredenn. laugh
