It's half that if you don't install the offline mode. You need great internet though. And you can't crash into your house. It's just a black screen.

You can turn off crashing and instead of a black screen, you will just bounce off of your house.

Big article in The Ringer on new Game Pass game Twelve Minutes. They rarely do video game stories. This sounds interesting. I plan to check it out today.

‘Twelve Minutes’ Will Suck You Into Its Time Loop

I dl'ed 12Min but haven't played it yet. It definitely looked intriguing.
Started CrisTales, which I had first heard of about a year ago in a PC Gamer preview. Sounded cool. And it is, to an extent. The time switching is interesting, both in combat and out. What annoyed me was the real-time nature of combat, where you have to hit a button to block or critical. The animation and art style is cute and unique, but also (at least for me) VERY hard to tell the proper time to hit. And even early on, I'm finding that timing will make or break your success. I put it aside.

My recent 'random try' game is Crown Trick.

It just came out. It definitely does not harness the full power of XSX, but it's got personality. It's sort of a cross between Hades, Slay the Spire, and Fatal Labyrinth, the old-ass Sega Genesis game. "Turn based roguelike" (Roguelikes are apparently Teh Hotness now). A run seems longer than Hades or STS, so we'll see what happens when I finish/lose one.
I like it so far, but it's definitely slower paced and more strategic than twitch. I actually prefer that, it's a nice change of pace, I have always liked turn based RPGs (although I do like Diablo-like games as well.)
