That's cool. I've long preferred Xbox but always end up on the Playstation due to exclusives. I used to like the Xbox exclusives but they sort of wore out on the 360.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

Alright, question for the Game Pass fans. I have a trial that's ending soon but haven't gotten around to Tell Me Why yet. So I decided to check the cost to see if there was a GP discount. Lo and behold, there was a Buy it Now button like every game, except instead of showing a discounted price to purchase it simply said "Free." I looked at a few other games and they all simply showed discounts to own. So does this mean Tell Me Why is indeed free and clear from a Game Pass subscription?

Chapter 1 of Tell Me Why is entirely free, GP or not.
You can buy a pack containing 1-3 for 9.99 currently on sale. Looks like the regular spring sale price might override the GP discount.
If it weren't in the spring sale, I would expect a few bucks off for being GP.

1-3 for ten bucks:

1 for free:

Tell Me Why has a free trial/hub and is a "pay per chapter" type game like the Telltale games and Live is Strange.
You can buy Chapters 1-3 for $9.99 on sale now.

Enjoying Octopath on PC. Really brings back memories of SNES RPGs for me.

oh interesting, could be NFL licensing and the ability to use player likenesses.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

So I've been playing Octopath (quite good so far, and I love the generous save points). About 12 hours in.
I've done 6 of the 8 Chapter 1s.

Any high level, non spoiler tips? I've only had one game over, though I've had some tough battles.

I have a set of characters that I prefer, but my party is currently Main character, Character whose chapter I'm doing, and 2 Lowest level characters, to help level them up.

Should I try to keep the characters balanced level-wise, or just play with who I like?
Once I get them all, should I follow one char's whole storyline, or do all Ch 1, then all Ch 2, etc, and keep changing my party?
Spoiler:
Provoke

seems kinda mean, and I've
Spoiler:
Stolen from a whole bunch of total innocents....


I've heard something about
Spoiler:
using the OCTO characters as a party, then using the PATH characters.

The ones I prefer, so far, are
Spoiler:
Thief, Beastmaster, Apothecary, Scholar.

You all need to give Rain on your Parade a shot. Delightful and silly game. Seems a little one-note at first, but there's some really cute scenarios that'll look familiar to basically anyone in this subforum. Just play it.

When I saw that pop up, it reminded me of Donut County, so I'll probably give it a shot.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

Played through Rain on Your Parade last night and itís an amusing enough hour or two for Ďfreeí, but Iíd wager most people who drop $15 on it will be pretty disappointed by the length and simplicity. Just a warning for any non-Game Pass players who see it mentioned and think they might want to pay for it.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

I'll reiterate that the game has some nice surprises along the way, including a level that ends up being way longer than the others, but fantastic. If you give up after 5 min, you're doing it wrong.

I played through all of it over the last couple days and I was pretty unimpressed. Poor impersonation of better games Katamari Damacy & Donut County.

I hope Psychonauts being released for Game Pass means that Psychonauts 2 will follow soon.

Weird that Alan Wake is leaving considering Microsoft published it.
