    are the forza horizon 4 DLCs worth it? i havent been able to play much of H4 (working on the slugfest that is motorsport 5), but from what ive played, horizon 4 is a lotta fun and ive also heard good things about the lego dlc
    100% worth it (especially the Lego one) but I'd recommend grabbing both - especially since Forza DLC tends to get delisted
    If you have Gamepass, you only need to grab the Lego DLC since Fortune Island is in Gamepass. Might save you a bit.compute
    ...?what are you talking about?...i have Gamepass and Fortune Island DLC is not included!!!...
    Forza Horizon 4 Fortune Island

    I myself surely didn't buy it (not even done with the base game yet) and still I have it... Since it is not free DLC and it is marked as Game Pass on the DLC page (see link above) I would assume Gamepass is what unlocked it.
    That´s odd...are you sure you didn´t buy it?...it is playable when bought and played via Gamepass FH4 base game but normally it is not included (looked it up on the internet)...

    Opinions on Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts? List looks straightforward but can see a thread from a while back complaining about bugs.

    Does anyone know if Metro Simulator has achievements on Xbox? It looks like it has Steam achievements but can’t find the xbox ones

    Can anybody tell me what is up with METRO SIMULATOR ?
    It has no achievements and not even a page of its own here on this site even though it was released ( did it ?? ) last year.
    Looks like it just doesn't have Ach's. There are plenty of Indy games on Xbox that don't. Shame, looks good and I imagine it would sell a bit better with Ach's.
    Games published through the Creators Program never have achievements.

    Yes, they'd probably sell better with achievements. But the devs would have to publish through ID@Xbox, which has much higher quality standards.

    https://www.xbox.com/en-US/developers/creators-program/
    Ahhh , ok , that makes sense. Just did not expect this game to come from that program I guess.
    Some other games from this dev do have achievements like both the firefighters games. This looks kind of the same quality.
    Anyway , it looks interesting enough to try it even though there are no achievements tied to it.

    Cyberpunk 2077 is 50% off as a massive update provides free DLCs (no achievements) & substantial game play enhancements.

    Street fighter x tekken is on sale for 360, which last went on sale July 2018
    Wow! Gonna get it, this also gives me hope that Enchanted Arms, Eternal Sonata, Infinite Undiscovery, Star Ocean: The Last Hope and Phantasy Star Universe go on sale.

    Bought Forza Horizon 4.
    Hopefully the online can be cleared.

    The game will be delisted in september.

    Yes, I am absolutely positive that I never bought Fortune Island (nor any other FH4 DLC). When I got the base game through Gamepass I went to the installation details of it (within the Xbox Games library on the console itself), there it had the Fortune Island DLC open for download. And if that does not do it for you then I have no explanation on how to get it and will take back my earlier statement.

    So sad games such as Street fighter x tekken and 3rd Strike are not backwards. I'd gladly buy them if...

    It's obviously not a licence issue, as both games are still available for sale.
    Yes I 100% agree, and the same with FIFA Street (2012).

    Might be good time to pick up the Lego and Fortune Island DLCs for FH4 I guess. Also thinking about finally getting Cyberpunk now.

    Since you've been doing Motorsport 5, have you received any $$$ for your paint or tune? I did at least 300 races in a day with my alt, and I did not get any money. Just wondering if you know or have experienced payback from it.
    i dont have paint/tune, but ive read on here that those achievements are discontinued unless the paint/tune is from before, like, 2016 (or whenever the game was put on end of life status) :/
    To add to this, I recently went back and finished off FM5 except for the discontinued Tuner/Paint achievements

    I actually had a paint job from 2013 that I downloaded with alt account and ran 300-500 races over consecutive days but still only got the message to say with continued use, I could earn credits but never did
    Ahhh same here… kk then its broken and I can consider the online for that game done with. Too bad I never got that stupid Impala to finish off the dlc though.

    I uploaded a tune and a paint like a month and a half ago and downloaded it with my alt. So that functionality still works… the problem is that after doing xx amount of races, it always comes up saying if you do more, then it will pay out.

    I just think its because the servers are garbage right now and it doesn’t connect consistently while you’re racing. So one can only assume that you only get credit for like 1/10 races or something like that. I might just go big and on a weekend just try like 1k races in a day since the rivals events only take a minute or two at most.

    Wow! Start your engines sale is great for racing fans. I got Crash Drive 3
    (real fun stunts game) Sky Rogue and Must Dash Amigos. I would buy Super Toy Cars 1-2 and Mini Madness if they were Xbox Play Anywhere titles as I don't have a Xbox and just use Xcloud on PC.
