Not bad. Will need more before I sign up. Maybe when they do another $1 month.

Everyone play WWE 2K17 so I can get the gold medal achievement and finally be done with this game

I would play Darksiders if they would fix (which I know they are not) the unobtainable achievement.

Microsoft sent a message to my Xbox Inbox to say that on January 31st Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and WWE 2K16 are being removed from Game Pass so would be wise to finish them up if this is the only way you have to access them currently.

I'll also admit to almost buying Rime with the sale. This month is dope for Game Pass games, so happy to see stuff like this come forward, though I think that bringing awesome games from last generation to the service would be the best course of action. Stuff like Metal Gear Rising, the original Dark Souls, Katamari, or even GUN.

I'll definitely give RiME and Halo Wars 2 a look as I don't have them. I already have Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition but won't touch it until that unobtainable is fixed. Happy to see WWE 2K17 on the list since I wasn't paying close attention when I bought it and accidentally purchased the 360 version. I'm looking forward to all the features that version didn't include so I'll definitely replay that. Also excited about Fable. I played the Lost Chapters original Xbox version which is the same content as the Anniversary edition but being an original Xbox title has no achievements. So like 2K17 I'll definitely be playing this version as well.

Can a person avail of the $1 deal more than once? For some reason I have it in my head that its a one-off offer per user. Did you avail of both $1 months so far?

There are 2 leaving on 31st January 2018. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (which was announced as only being available until then when it was added back in November), and WWE 2K16 (presumably to make way for WWE 2K17).

I also notice NBA 2K16, which was a launch title, is no longer available. With NBA 2K17 being added next month it loos like they'll remove the older editions of "yearly" sports games before adding the newer ones.

I signed up for special £1 deal. The big reason for my decision was Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, but with Microsoft removing the game on the 31st, I think I will cancel.

I don't want to be a member, if they are going to be adding and removing games like this.

I was able to claim the £1 for a month deal twice over Christmas, and still have my 14 day free trial to claim.
Excited to check out RiME anyway! Loving Game Pass so far. :)

When MGS V was added they made it known it was a limited time offer...

Halo Wars 2 looks interesting
I'll second to that.
Third! Not a huge RTS guy but it's hard to turn down Halo
Luckily they made these easy to play RTS, not like Command and Conquer. I like both though.
I mean RTS on console is a doomed concept, Tiberium War was a poor port without the battle planner mode which was made for PC's some parts were near impossible with the limited controls you were given. They should at least be cross-platform like Universe at War so some of us can avoid banging our heads against the proverbial wall that is console RTS.

It's more like gaming Netflix (than say EA Access' vault) - there will always be games there, but not necessarily the same games.

It's not ideal.

I think Game Pass is a pretty awesome service. I have more games to play than I have time now...

To be fair, EA Access has removed games too.

I agree with the person who said that Letter Quest was fun. I bought it for the full 10 bucks. It is a good game and it is not too dificult to 1000. There is a little grinding (just a little) and it can be challenging.. but boy it is fun. Definitely check it out.

I am thinking about getting Game Pass again after my $1 month and with Riptide coming up, it gives me one more reason to get another month. dance
