RiME is execeptional, and it deserved it 81% on metacritic. Looking past the (minor) flaws its the most fun I've had with an indie since Inside.
Such a good game, I really enjoy RiME. In the sameish vein AER - Memories of Old is a good relaxing game similar to this.

Hey cool, I finished Darksiders Warmastered recently thanks to Game Pass, and now I will be able to play Darksiders II Deathfinitive. I have 5 new games waiting to be played & I'll only be playing Game Pass ones, haha. Jeez.

This game pass seems to be a success so far.

Glad I never bought the remastered Darksiders games.
Every game with DLC that you pay for is a paid update.

I bought Halo Wars 2 physical retail, new sealed for only 5 bucks 8 months ago. ;)

Still haven't played it.
How'd you manage that?! I'd commit to that.

Also... lol at the multipass comment, I hear her voice in my head everytime.

Sure would be fine if Bf4 premium for the 360 were added. If not on Gamepass then on EA access.

Cool! A few good titles to try since I took the 3 months cheaper option.

It looks like MS is having to rely on it's own games too much. I wonder why ubisoft hasn't supported this.

Isn't it a year after release, effectively? Regardless, it makes perfect sense for a game to enter a subscription service prior to being released for a year; even the non-annual EA titles typically enter the EA Access Vault within 6-8 months after release. After the first 1-3 months, games simply don't sell in large numbers, and if your game is built to support smaller DLCs/microtransactions (like Halo Wars 2 is) then it actually makes more financial sense to open up the population count and make back the revenue on selling those cheaper DLCs and consumable content.

Letter Quest is a fun game and if you haven't tried it I'd highly recommend it. Same with Riptide GP. Both games in the series are great and I feel they're underrated. I heard it had issues with it at launch with the cops but when I played it in the summer it was decently easy and a lot of fun.

So let me get this right, the Partly Discontinued/Unobtainable in Fable Anniversary can be obtained by playing on a 360 console, but not through backward compatibility. However, Game Pass only permits access through the One and my 360 will not recognise my ability to play it.

Really want to play this one, but that will frustrate me if I'm right.
You are right.

Not necessarily.

You used to buy Microsoft Office (eg Office 2013), now you pay monthly for Office 365. It is much better for a company to get a committed amount of revenue every month, rather than a lump sum every few years. By adding a high profile title like Halo Wars 2 it increases the subscription base, and the theory is if your product is good people won't cancel their subscription.

Also, HW2 has Awakening the Nightmare for Halo Wars 2 for $20 and other add-ons with achievements costing $48 ($30 for Season Pass). We all know individual add-ons don't often go on sale, instead the best bet is to buy the the Complete Edition ($60) when it is on sale. Pretty much the same for GwG, you may get the game with XBL Gold subscription, but to get the add-ons it is often cheaper to buy the game again.

HW:DE no longer comes with HW2, but it is also in the multi game pass.

Might finally use my 14 days Game Pass trial just for Rime.

It's not completely Unobtainable, but won't be unlockable through Game Pass as it can only be done on an Xbox 360 console. See above.
