    There is nothing about the ending in that post other than there are two kinds of with different flavors. The stealing part happens mid way in the first episode.

    I can't for the life of me find Metal Slug X on my Xbox's GamePass!
    The article seems to suggest it should be there for both Xbox and PC?
    Is there some region differences with what is available on GamePass, cause I was under the impression that we all get the same stuff.

    Tried to start Metro Exodus, but every time I played it, it would run for 5 minutes and then my XBox One X would say it was overheating and turn off. This is literally the only game that has ever made it do this. Anyone know if this was an issue that was ever fixed with a patch?
    Too much work, not enough games

    Oh thank goodness its not a major spoiler. That's a relief. For a minute there I thought you completely farted on my cornflakes.

    Alright, that will be the kick I need to get on with playing Life is Strange 2 then. Just loved the first one and the prequel.

    Are you looking specifically for "ACA Neogeo Metal Slug X"?

    Try going directly to the store page? Showing as part of Game Pass on Microsoft.com for me.

    I can find the PC version on the microsoft store page, but not Xbox.
    In fact, searching for it in the Xbox's store... it doesn't even exist for the console.

    I'm thinking this must be an Australian thing.

    It's very easy to glitch this and cut 10 hours off the completion time:

    Anyone else notice the achievement guide here for metal slug, lists the scores needed as being way lower?

    Metro Exodus keeps freezing for me... It seems I won´t get that 1000.

    Shadow Tactics is good. I´m going to get all achievements except the badges one.

    Yes, the TA Score is too low on this game, it also needs a disclaimer on it saying its only that easy if you're a pro. I couldn't even do the first achievement lol.

    You mean a particular guide or the walkthrough or...?

    I can't stomach Metro Exodus for the 100%, was a decent game though. LiS2 grind it is.

    Life is Strange 2. Do it now!
    To do or not to do. THAT is the question.

    Yes but thanks to GamePass you get a chance to try games before you buy. Unless you suffer from the pains of completionism and must run yourself into the ground until you squeeze every achievement out of every game you ever touch that saves you from regrettable purchases.
    You have free play days for that, no need to pay extra for game pass.

    I suppose it depends on your game collection, if you have a huge backlog of purchases, then game pass is not needed, but if you just use game pass and not buy, unless they leave then game pass is more wirthwhile.
    I have a very impressive backlog of which I'm proud but still I find GamePass compelling, even though the backlog suffers at its hands. I tend to buy games that have left GamePass which I started on it and enjoyed, and I don't finish them on purpose so I have a reason to continue later (but who knows if that day will ever come thanks to GamePass and the backlog). Free play days are nice but you can't seriously compare the variety and quality of choices, and availability. Very few free play weekend games had ever sparked a burning desire in me to get them.

    Already got the Exodus Season Pass on sale awhile ago so will finally get about completing those. Don't know if I can be bothered doing the Ranger Hardcore mode stuff.

    I guess I should also play LiS 2 as I've played all the others... zzz...
    There's a workaround for Hardcore.
    Ah so there is. I guess I'll give it a go at some point. smile

    Been putting off LiS2 for a while now. I was a big fan of the original and the prequel. Can anyone vouch for the sequel? I played Captain Spirit, and it was interesting, but for some reason I just can't find the motivation to start LiS2. Maybe it's because I was so invested in the original cast. It feels like Dragon Age 2 all over again.

    Is that the one where the final chapter magically appears in the chapter select list? I could never get it to work... angry
