Default Xbox Game Pass Discussion & Games List

Kind of surprised there are no threads like this already created. Discuss games you are playing or suggest titles to play on Game Pass. I will post a Games List (which I will update frequently) and I will also post any and all news, including games that are coming to or leaving the Game Pass.

Appreciate all the work (and obviously future work). Hopefully it can generate even a little more life into the Xbox section here, especially since the Series X is such a good console.

No problem! I am hoping the same. Although a lot of people here seem to “ride or die” with Sony. Even though Microsoft was utilizing a UHD drive before Sony was. I was a PS2 guy, then a 360 guy, then a PS4 guy and now I’m fairly certain I’m gonna be a Series X, guy. Basically, I’m only gonna buy exclusives on my PS5.

As for the Game Pass, Microsoft is really bringing it these past few weeks. All of those Bethesda games, and now Outriders, day one, and the other announcement that shocked me nearly as much, with Octopath Traveler coming to Game Pass simultaneously with its release to Xbox consoles. Octopath was literally a system seller for the Switch. And it being given to Game Pass subscribers for free right away - that’s pretty awesome!

Star Wars: Squadrons and Empire of Sin hit Game Pass, yesterday. I plan to try out Squadrons tomorrow.

If anyone is looking for a quick easy 1000 Gamer Score, Donut County is a quirky, fun and easy 1000 points. It takes maybe 2 hours to unlock them all. But it’s a really enjoyable experience, and if you have Game Pass it’s free to download. So, definitely worth the time and price!

I was going to play Squadrons at some point, but passed on it at release since it seemed like some people were disappointed with it. Now that it's on Game pass though, there's no reason for me not to try it at some point. Well, that is unless it sucked, but it doesn't even though it might not have met some people's expectations.

I saw you playing that one day and I was like "WTF?" Obviously never heard of it before, but might check it out at some point if have a couple of hours where I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Valhalla or Gears Tactics.

It’s showing up that way, with the X/S logo, so I assume it has been.

Bought a Razer Kishi to utilise the cloud portion of game pass. Worked pretty well. Gave Wolfenstein, Halo, and Carto a try. Clearly works best with a good Internet signal. Future of the service is very positive.

Most impressed that I could play using the cloud while my son was playing on the console. Presuming that means we can play co-op games that are not split screen.

I have not tried dipping into the Cloud aspect yet. I certainly plan to, eventually.

Glad to see this thread. I was once almost anti-GPU at one point (I like owning the games I want to own), but now I'm full in and love it.

I've tried a lot of games I never normally would have, especially due to the MS Rewards point bonuses (which are great - you can make twenty bucks a month in credit, even without buying anything). Even if I don't end up playing them for more than a bit, I really like being able to try new things and see what others are talking about. And I use the credit I earn to buy the games that I do want to buy that aren't GPU and I would have bought anyway.

The other day, I topped up my account until 2024. For anyone looking to do this who is already who already did the GPU upgrade and doesn't want to deal with the cancel/retry thing with the $1 upgrade deal (which does seem to work if you contact MS for help, but is still a hassle), the easiest way to add cheap GPU months right now remains the EA PLAY cards.

You can get them for like $27 online (cheaper if you look for deals) and the 12-month EA Play cards covert to 4 months of GPU. So basically it's less than $7/month.

So if you look at it a certain way, considering I get like twenty bucks a month in rewards credit from MS Rewards with all the GPU bonuses, and my GPU is costing me about $7 a month....MS is basically paying me $13 a month to participate in GPU.

the one thing that bothered me was the size of the screen. My phone is a Galaxy S21u, and i quickly realized most console games aren't designed for those screens. I could hardly make out any writing or details. So choose what you play carefully.

Since most here are Game Pass members, is anyone interested in trading any of the Game Pass perks codes? I have some extras I won't be using and am looking for some for my friends who aren't on Game Pass but play the same games I do. I have some current and previous ones, I believe they are region-locked so USA/Canada/Mexico are the North American ones that I have. I know they didn't use to be but I had heard some codes won't work outside the region they are intended for, much like XBOX Live Gold/Game Pass Ultimate codes.

Feel free to private message me if you are looking for anything, I need the Sea of Thieves one and Apex Legends one from the latest crop of offerings.

I'll dip into Forza every once in a while, like if my wife is watching TV or something
