I believe so. It's not showing up for me in either the Game Pass all games A-Z or the Sports & Racing sections (although I do get the option to Install it when I search for it in the Store).

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

Yes I got the $1 deal for december and then the $1 deal of january.

OMG I wasn't aware that Fable Anniversary Achievements has one Unobtainable. roll
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.
Thanks I saw that on the guides for the achievement and tested it in a dummy account and worked.

By the way, for those who are on the game pass, when you see a game priced as "free" with gamepass, do you actually get that game for free?

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.
With Metal Gear, the announcement of it being added to the game pass contained a remark that it would be removed on this date. Haven't seen such warning with any other game pass addition, but only with metal gear probably because of the short duration.

at first i was SUPER excited to see DARKSIDERS 2 but!! it has an unobtainable achv!! WTF!!!!!!

I can't believe Halo Wars 2 is already on Game Pass tho... does that mean it's not selling well... still haven't 100% Halo Wars 1, so I guess I'll pass.

I just might dive back in Albion and play Fable, But I've played thru Fable 1 on OG xbox like 5 times so I dunno, I might not.


Most excited about RIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I almost bought this so many times!!! clapclap

Thanks. That's good to know. I passed on the $1 Black Friday deal as I wouldn't have had time to play any Game Pass games during December, but the $1 New Year's deal was almost perfect timing for me. I've played 5 ID@Xbox games over the past 10 days that had been added in the months since Game Pass launched and, with my subscription running until February 3rd, I'll get to play RiME too.

Not to own, no, if that's what you mean. All Game Pass games are free to install and play as long as you're paying for Game Pass, but you lose access to them when your subscription lapses. Unless you buy them, of course.

lol noooooooooooooooo!!!

I just realised that WWE 2K16 was Games with Gold back in 2016, which I downloaded. I have been rushing to try and complete it before its removal from Game Pass, even purchasing the Kickstarter DLC to speed things up.

I am such a dickhead!

And my understanding is you can't complete it. As there are unobtainables.

Which is why i never started it, after downloading on GWG.
