    Nice additions. I've never played a Dirt game before but will definitely try out Dirt 5 as it's Series X optimised. Wish I had the time to play Pillars of Eternity 2 though.
    Gaming on the Xbox Series X!

    Is Dirt 5 an easy completion? The list and ratio make it look that way but I’ve seen people say they’ve had trouble with it.
    Easy list but the travel 10,000 miles achievement is a grind
    They lowered it to 1000 miles its not so hard anymore i still don't get it why there is so low completed
    Because after the career you are around 45/50% of the 1000 miles needed and there is really not much to do than playground races. There is a "rubberband" method but still a pain.

    The game is soulless, like FH2 when all that is left is finishing the championships.
    I'm halfway through D5 and can only stomach 5 races with each play before boredom creeps in.

    Damn, Dirt 5, that's real good addition. Came so close to buying it before from how the Amplified edition was on sale some time ago but glad I didn't now.

    Just worried that all the eventual DLC will have achievements like previous CM games often had, even after once Dirt 5 finally leaves game pass.

    And Elite Dangerous continues its warpath to being the highest TA points game.

    That’s lucky, I was toying with buying dirt 5 at half price from the store, glad I held off

    I'd say these are pretty good additions!

    I am shocked that Minecraft PC is still not on GPU. I guess it's too much of a money maker maybe?
    If they want to make people pay the $5 extra a month for ultimate, you'd think having it would help drive GPU sales.
    I don't get it either. The DLC purchases carry over between the versions regardless. It's kinda bullshit that it's not play anywhere as well. It's one of the only MS-owned IP that isn't. When I take my kids to work sometimes it would be hella nice if they could play it on PC n stop asking me a zillion questions LOL
    Or xCloud for countries that have it. I tested my internet speed at work - 1gbps up / 1gbps down, not that xCloud is available in NZ. The speed is actually throttled by my NIC from 30gbps.

    Minecraft Dungeons is available, but it’s not the same.

    Perhaps we can revive the pvp mode in elite dangerous


    Code vein is awful

    Superhot is neat but has a stupid final achievement

    Both Dirt 5 and Wreckfest are both pretty easy completions in my opinion. For Dirt 5, just be aware that the 1,000 miles achievement can be a bit buggy, and it may stop counting the miles. They may have released a patch to fix this issue, but if they haven't, the way to fix this is hard resetting your console.

    Elite is one of the best games I have EVER played. The scope is... incredible. I only bought it in May, and I've seriously dropped 1000 hours into it. And yeah, I jump from game to game too, but there's always Elite.

    Don't let the rumors of a steep curve turn you away. The community is AMAZING, and there are plenty of us here and elsewhere that will help you through the whole thing.

    Shameless plug for my Dirt 5 walkthrough:
    DIRT 5 Walkthrough

    Easy game, but if you are expecting it to play like 4 you are in for a BIG shock. It’s a totally different game, and as a massive fan of the franchise, a really poor addition to the series all in all.

    Don't waste your time on Dirt 5, play Elite: Dangerous and Wreckfest instead.
    If you have to ask, you're streets behind.

    Haha! Glad I didn’t give Codies any money for DIRT 5.

    Dirt 5 has no soul and is a major letdown. I also bought it last week on sale for $50. Oh well.

    Dirt 5 :D
    Selling warframe Platinum, I'm going to give up my favorite game for a while and I have too much platinum. I love Warframe and Destiny. Warframe <3

    Can't wait to see the ratio inflations on Elite Dangerous. An absolute experience of a game though. Nothing like it
