Make sure to turn off auto renewal after getting the month free.

There's about 16 days left and there some quests where you have to do 3 weekly missions.
I also got the two months today

Now I'm good through July 2022.

I haven't tried Ultimate on my computer, and honestly don't even know how well the games would run. Is it just an app or something I need to download on Windows 10?

I never got to play New Vegas, so I might jump into that immediately. I loved 3, not so much 4, and I heard NV is a better version of 3.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

I've already downloaded Outer Worlds in full, but obviously can't play it. I'm sure there'll be another patch before the actual release... but my expectation is that it'll be playable the night of the 24th, if not the morning of the 25th.

edit: oops. I was responding to the previous page of the thread. Didn't see any of the new posts until I hit Post.

I liked NV a lot more. The main quest/story was a bit short, but there's so much to do for side quests and expansions, and I felt like they were of a much better variety than what we got with 3.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

I'm currently on a 3 month $15 promo that expires next week.

Are there any deals for this? I think I saw one on CDKeys for around the same price. I don't think I really want to subscribe to the 3 month $45 regular price for this.

Sweet, I'm wrapping mine up today so 2 months instead of 1 would be great. And don't forget to check rewards catalog as they now offer 1 and 3 months of Ultimate as well for points. I'm only about 3K points away from getting the 3 month for 35,000 points.

You need to download the Xbox (Beta) app. The games running well depends on the type of game and how your PC is built. I finished Hollow Knight with no problems, just a couple of frame drops here and there during combat, but Arkham Knight is simply unplayable with the massive frame drops. I expected that, since I just have a pre-built PC with a GTX 1050 TI.

Also surprised at how quickly my Internet downloads the games.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

I really liked New Vegas.

I'm about 10 hours into Outer Worlds now, and if you like Fallout 3/NV, check it out. It's Fallout-ish with a little more sardonic humor in the story and dialog, and COLORS OTHER than brown in the landscapes! Lot of fetchquesting but so far I'm still really into it.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

So if anyone needs a deal on Game Pass Ultimate, Best Buy (and others too, I think) are giving an additional 3 mo with purchase of a 3 mo digital card. 6 mo for $45 is $7.50 a month and a pretty good deal. I'm already good until Sept 2022 so I am passing for now and will have to hope it comes back around next year.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

Gamepass continues to be an amazing value

Nice to see Streets of Rage 4 on the upcoming list. It also kinda sucks for people who bought the season pass for Life is Strange 2.

Just imagine if somebody here bought Rage 2 on sale a few months ago and hadn't even opened it yet...

Well then I would call them a sucker

At least you have a nice looking coaster. JK.

Even now that it's on Gamepass, I can't imagine going back to that game with all the other great games that have come out recently.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

Rage 2 is on my list to try, downloading now, but yet, lots of good games (some not so good, yes.)
I may fire up FFIX and FFX2 when they release - I had been working on a replay a few months ago on my PS2.
GP is a great deal.

gamer-centric social network. Kind of a modernized IRC chat sort of thing.
Don't worry... I don't get it either. but "everyone" has a discord channel or server or whatever now.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

holy balls.

I just switched (I won't be charged until September 2022 anyway, because of the years I have stacked), but we'll see if MS fixes this.

$0.05/day = $18.25/year.

Yup, I just did the same. And I am good for the same period of time as well.

I am good through May 2022 and just switched over. Pretty sure MS will catch on to this.

Not sure why we needed this in 3 separate threads when it's most certainly going to get cancelled.
