    I'm definitely going to "rent" Dead Island when I have time.

    They said they plan to add at least five games a month, starting with this month (July).

    They were less descriptive about how much would leave every month, but did state that anything currently in the Game Pass will be there until at least November (not sure if inclusive or the month of November or not).

    Thought they were removing games aswell?

    I love this service. This, and EA Access. It strikes me as a rather good way for them to make money on games that nobody is buying anymore, and yet actually be damn good value for the consumer.

    Saying that, I do own about 60-70% of the games in the Game Pass catalog. Which sucks somewhat, but there's still a bunch of stuff there that I've never played, and wouldn't actively buy without a massive discount (Flame in the Flood, for example). But for the sticker price, I'll play the crap out of those I don't have.

    Now if only Ubisoft would follow suit...

    I thoroughly enjoyed my 14-day Game Pass trial. It's a service that I won't subscribe to just yet, but I look forward to what's to offer in the coming months and years.

    I think I'll keep my trial in bank a little longer in order to see what's coming next.

    Not until November from what I heard...

    Good to see Bard's Gold on the list, I had a lot of fun completing this a couple of months back, so for fans of Roguelike (loosely) platformers I highly recommend it!

    The Flame in the Flood looks like a lot of fun. I've still got far too many Indie games though that I bought during last week's sale to get through first roll

    Maybe I'll try Bard's Gold.

    I plan on using my trial in October since they've said that stuff would be removed in November, waiting to see what else gets added so I can knock out some easy GS in 14 days. I'm keeping a list as they add stuff.

    I got a month from Bing so I went ahead and used my trial. It's a nice service for when you want something new to play but I mostly just went after the easy completions. I'll definitely use it again as I've already seen some games come off my wish list.

    Sick! my friends won't shut up about Flame in the Flood so I guess it's good laugh

    Looking forward to playing it once the Bean Dive goes live

    I'm pretty sure my days of buying games are over, between my backlog and the game pass I won't have to anymore.

    Dilemma: I don't want to restart Resident Evil 6 on the Xbox One because I never finished the 360 edition :( Hopefully it goes backward compatible
  • Posted on 28 June 17 at 16:52Permalink
    Gonna wait for a few more games to be added before I use my Trial, but I like this service. Just wish I didn't already have a lot of the games! haha
