    Glad I waited on Hellblade!

    Sadly, there no reason to buy a game anymore. It's kinda great, but can't be good long-term.

    Sad but true, this right here is why I buy games on sale 95% of the time, and even then, they usually end up on GP facepalm

    Hellblade is an awesome addition. I've already played it but I encourage everyone to give it a try. Really beautiful especially on the X. I guess this gives me the opportunity to try PUBG as well. I'm not really a MP gamer but with so many playing, it has be good. Right??!

    They said MXGp3, Agents of Mayhem and Thomas was Alone are November 22nd. Ori and the Blind Forest is December 20th. It is also on the Xbox Game Pass twitter page.

    Some of these titles will be interesting to test out. Void Bastards sounds promising.

    the game pass is a great deal for most but for those who support some of the more 'indie' and late-release cross-overs, it feels like- why take a chance? I don't moan about FH4 etc as it was known in advance that it would be part of the GP but I'm a bit annoyed about Hellblade and a couple of others. Nevermind. I think though, that this seems to give a big hint that the future and indeed the revolution will be streamed

    I bought game pass for $2 for one month during a sale, then I did the Halo Game Pass Quest and they gave me $5, and then I logged onto Microsoft rewards one day and they just had a code for 3 months free of game pass sitting on my rewards dashboard.

    Microsoft really wants me to use game pass so I have been here and there and this new list of additions will be nice.

    I also joined for $1 about 6 months ago and right away they gave me a 2nd month free for auto renewal. Then they added gamepass to bing rewards I got another 3 months free. Now I got 3 more free months for points crusader,and I almost have enough Bing points for another 3 months. Crazy!!

    It's odd, but Phil has stated multiple times that game pass owners buy more games, so it is profitable. Counter-intuitive I know, but there you have it.

    Did Xbox remove the video from their YouTube? It was embedded and the article even said something about checking the video below, I refreshed and the embed has been removed as well.
