    I have seen this so many times on sale but still did not buy it because I want both dlc at the same time and think they are too expensive.
    The First Colony Edition includes both DLCs. For some reason the TA sales roundups only say that one is included, but the FCE includes the Season Pass which comes with both Space Race and Green Planet.
    Thanks! That helps!

    I hate to see Void Bastards go but, if we're getting Maneater in return, it's a good trade off IMO. I was planning on renting it and now I don't have to!

    I really hope the Kingdom Hearts games listed come back at some point. Never had a chance to start them and were a nice addition to Game Pass.

    Don't start Assetto Corsa if you don't have a wheel. It's barely playable with the pad

    They were pretty cheap in a sale at one point when I bought them, I want to say 70% off.

    dont get fooled by the 20 -25 hour estimate for Void Bastards. It is one of those games that while might be easy for some the game is quite hard when you add the restrictions required for some achievements.
    If you want to have fun because it is a fun game and earn a few cheevs then I recommend it for sure

    Yeah I might do that the next time they're on sale, hopefully this Summer Sale coming up.

    Ah, had FF9 and Kingdom Hearts in my "To Play", but they weren't priority because I'd already done them in their original form. Hopefully they'll come back one day, although not holding my breath.

    Time to start Void Bastards...

    While I agree with this, some of us did do it with controller...

    Anyway, thanks for the ratio boost all you folks who started Assetto while it was in Game Pass. wink

    Jokes aside, I do have a feeling the other Assetto game will be in GP soon enough to replace this one.

    Pretty much what I did, they were £10 each.

    Some of these completion times make me laugh. 20-25 hours for Void Bastards? No way. Look at the hours people have put in completing it - the enormous ratio. It's a stealth game - you are outgunned, outnumbered all the time and it's permadeath. Get a few achievements before it leaves for the ratios but a quickie it is not. A fond farewell for the game that kept me in GTASC week after week.

    Assetto Corsa looks good but that grind looked mega for me.
    Day 1 Gears of War player. Seriously achievement April 2007.

    I'm not sure if anyone else has mentioned this, but the link for Surviving Mars (Win 10) gives an error message.

    I think that's more of a factor that the vast majority of people don't bother to leave completion time estimates for games. So the people that did, did complete it in that time.

    Damn I thought I'd have to the end of June with Kingdom Hearts. I don't feel like rushing, so I'll finish the base KH1 list and wait for a sale I guess 😕

    I kept putting off KH over and over again. Oh well I guess if I truly wanted to play it I would have. I'm sure I could still pick it up in a sale if the itch ever strikes hard enough.
    So it goes...

    Noooo.
    I only have kingdom hearts BBS left, but I doubt that I will complete it within this month. I thought I would at least have time until end of June.
    Birth by Sleep is very short, nowehere near any of the other games. It requires two playthroughs if you do it with a guide and only has a few tricky parts. It is certainly doable by the end of the month if you have some time to play it.
    Ok. Will give it a try then. Thanks!
    I won't even try to get all achievements. No crit run and no level grinding if it's hours after ending the game (like riku in Com). Won't complete the whole collection anyway.
    EDIT: Okay I just realized I'm talking about the second BBS game. Sorry! laugh For some reason I thought about Fragmentary Passage.
    While the first BBS is much shorter as well the 100% is very long. Sorry for the misunderstanding!
    Hehe, no problem. I'll try anyway :)
