Pretty much!

At $195 for three years, all you gotta do is not buy a game a year to make it worth your while.

I have an external hard drive that I want to use for Gamepass. It's NTSF. I formatted it to 2k cluster size, but when I try to install to it it says it cannot be used because cluster size is over 4. I've tried everything.

Someone suggested using the Microsoft store to install and it worked!

Do you mean your internet service is too slow, or specifically your wifi signal can't handle it. Because there's other options for connecting an XB1 to your modem/router.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

Yeah, it's sad the 1$ deal is gone, but it actually stayed around, and was much more open, than I ever expected it to. I'm still surprised they're not including a 2 week or 1 month code in new consoles, or with a controller, or whatever. IIRC many of those codes were for first time subscribers only, which I think is fair.

So - Ubisoft Plus, or whatever it's called.

I actually own and enjoy a lot of Ubisoft games, so I can see a value there. However, for the price, on top of GPU (admittedly subbed at various discounts due to deals), and with some Ubisoft games included, I'm not really interested in subbing to this one at this time. I hope publishers don't start carving out their games from GP so we have a dozen of these subscription services offered. Sort of like streaming networks, seems like saturation point has almost been reached. Also I hope the current Ubisoft games don't leave GP.
That said, historically, Ubisoft games have tended to drop in price reasonably quick and often, so on first thought I'd rather buy a game for fifteen bucks than access it through a sub for 18. I tend to know if I'll like a Ubisoft game or not, it's not like trying stuff I've never heard of from Gamepass. I don't want to have to have multiple monthly subscriptions, although even with the subs it's cheaper than buying a full price game a month, especially as base retail goes up to 70 bucks or more.
Anyway -
U+ is not for me right now, I'll follow it, I wish it was part of GP (would prefer Ubi's library in GP than EAs, actually), and I hope it doesn't mean Ubisoft games won't drop in price like they have been the last couple years.

I opened up Loop Hero to "check it out for a few minutes" the other day and ended up playing for 2 1/2 hours. It might not have dozens of hours of replayability in it, but I'll give it at least that much time again to build my village up some more. One of the first things I did though was speed up travel and combat a lot, since there's literally almost nothing to do hands-on during those other than equipping stuff or fleeing.

I'm also a big fan of most Ubisoft games but there's no way I'm paying $18/ month right now for this service. If it was $10, probably.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

I just finished Far Cry 4 and recently played AC Syndicate and AC Odyssey, so Iím the target audience, but yeah, not for $18. Maybe if youíre buying gold/deluxe/ultimate editions right out of the gate, but youíll notice I just mentioned Far Cry 4. And I already own most AC games except Valhalla.

I agree that itíd be a bummer if that means not including stuff in Game Pass. They have FC5 now and I was assuming thatís how Iíd eventually play FC6.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

Should've been $10 basic = base game no DLC

$18 Premium = all DLC

I rarely play tve extra stuff and for $10 it be nice to play launch games.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

Tips on getting Forza Horizon 5 to start? I have it on the main C drive, SSD. I press play on the XBOX app, nothing happens. I have it run on administrator on Windows 7 compatibility mode (and have Windows 8 and regular compatibility). I get the first screen, it logs in, then the smaller second screen, then nothing.

I have an AMD Ryzen 7 5800 8-core, Windows 11, 32gig RAM, with an AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT.

There's a whole Troubleshooting HUB on Forza.net . This is their thread for problems getting the game to run:

You may be able to post your own issue there, but you should read up on the forum rules:

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

Chicory is now up on Game Pass.

Here's some titles announced for the first half of June.

Car Mechanic Simulator 2021 (Cloud, Console, and PC) – June 1
Roll up your sleeves and immerse yourself in the highly realistic garage environment of Car Mechanic Simulator 2021. Start as a fresh owner of a car garage and work your way towards a service empire. Get ready to get your hands dirty and work on 4000+ unique parts and over 72 different cars.

Slayers X: Terminal Aftermath: Vengance of the Slayer (Cloud, Console, and PC) – June 1
Available on day one with Game Pass: So you got what it takes to be a X Slayer?! 7 weapons, blood and gore, twisted music by Seepage & Psyko Syndikate, and maps where you can blow up everything. It's awesome.

The Big Con (Cloud, Console, and PC) – June 1
Hustle your way across '90s America as a runaway teen con artist. Choose who to grift and how to make your scratch as you sneak around, don disguises, and pick pockets in this comedic crime adventure. Ride the radical '90s wave in all its plaid and payphone glory! Do crime, make money, and have fun.

Amnesia: The Bunker (Cloud, Console, and PC) – June 6
Amnesia: The Bunker is a first-person horror game set in a desolate WW1 Bunker. Face the oppressing terrors stalking the dark corridors. Search for and use the tools and weapons at your disposal, while keeping the lights on at all costs. Overcome fear, persevere, and make your way out alive.

Hypnospace Outlaw (Cloud, Console, and PC) – June 6
Making a return to the Game Pass library
, Hypnospace Outlaw is a '90s internet simulator in which you scour Hypnospace's wide variety of weird and wonderful websites to hunt down wrongdoers, while also keeping an eye on your inbox, avoiding viruses and adware, and downloading a plethora of apps that may or may not be useful.

Rune Factory 4 Special (Cloud, Console, and PC) – June 8
Journey to the vibrant world of Rune Factory and experience the legendary fantasy farming adventure like never before! Venture outside the town gates to explore dangerous dungeons. Use swords, spears, staves, and other weapons and magic to personalize your battle tactics as formidable monsters await in trap-laden dungeons.

Stacking (Cloud and Console) – June 8
From Tim Schafer's Double Fine Productions, explore a vintage world inhabited by living Russian stacking dolls as you jump into more than 100 unique dolls and use their special abilities to solve a wide variety of puzzles & challenges.

Dordogne (Cloud, Console, and PC) – June 13
Available on day one with Game Pass: Immerse yourself in a unique narrative experience and explore the thousand summer colors of Dordogne as you revisit your childhood to uncover lost family secrets in this touching formative journey.
They usually drop some higher profile titles around the time of their showcase, so we should see something interesting in a week or two.


Titles leaving June 15:
Bridge Constructor Portal (Cloud, Console, and PC)
Chorus (Cloud, Console, and PC)
Maneater (Cloud, Console, and PC)
Mortal Shell (Cloud, Console, and PC)
Serious Sam 4 (Cloud, Console, and PC)
Total War: Three Kingdoms (PC)
I'm going to try to put some time into Chorus before it goes.
As for the new/returning titles, Slayers X: Terminal Aftermath: Vengance of the Slayer is a kind of spin-off from Hypnospace Outlaw, so it makes sense that they'd bring HO back for a bit.
I've heard good things about Stacking, The Big Con, and Dordogne.
Busy month for indies... not so much for big games, for now...

not to mention the AA or AAA games (ratings aside, good or bad) that hit GP on day one in the last 12 months, but those don’t count.

Dan and I were referring to Game Pass games.

It's a huge year for big games overall, just not on Game Pass, yet

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

So, someone school my dumbass on how xbox live works. My subscription expired yesterday for xbox live/ultimate. I checked my Microsoft account online and it shows nothing active. I put in Modern Warfare 2 and was able to play online - then remembered it's free. I put in GTA online to test, no issues there either.

What exactly do I need a membership for?? I don't care about any of the games that get released on game pass at all.

Are all online portion of games free to play online now??

As I understand, you don't need it for free-to-play games. GTA online shouldn't have worked. Have you tried launching a GamePass game? If GP game launches then your live account is still active.

You do need a Live Gold account to play GTA Online on Xbox. Maybe your Game Pass expired but you still have an active Live Gold account?
