Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

Very interesting deal! So if I understand that correctly, you'll be able to stream ABK games if you have Ubisoft+ (or any other service Ubi makes a deal with), but I imagine you'll also be able to download and play them natively if you have Game Pass.


(assuming the entire Microsoft/ABK deal goes through, which, at this point, seems inevitable since the UK is quite literally the only holdout. Since this Ubi deal directly works towards the issues the UK had with cloud options, we should be seeing them approve the merger 'soon.')

I almost bought TCM but after watching online gameplay, I'll pass. One funny thing I saw is that there is an out of map glitch. It was funny watching leatherface and whoever the chick is supposed to be trying to reach them. The players who glitched just stood at the fence taunting them until the chick through poison at them lol.

They then started running toward the boundary, fell through the map and ended up stuck in a weird area that displayed a google earth pic of a neighborhood (close up). Pretty weird.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

I found a fun little game called Broforce on Game Pass... it's a small download and plays like an 8-bit side scroller. It's over the top mayhew using "bro" in descriptions for all the 80's and 90's action heres... Like Brommando (Commando), The characters have unique skills as you rescue them. Cheap, mindless fun

That debuted as a free game on Games with Gold or Playstation Plus. I can't remember which. It was kinda fun.

Not saying this game is going to be any good, but at least it's coming and won't cost you anything to play but your time.

And ask any PlayStation 4 owner : Pigeons are more powerful than Spider-Man.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

I just realized I just have to finish 2 games a year to get the $120 value. I'll try to get through Lies of Pi, Sea of Stars, and The Lamplighter's League this year. I still have 2 of the 3 months of my ROG Ally free months left, but I'm just going to go the 10 bucks a month on this.

I cannot recommend Wasteland 2 and Wasteland 3 enough. The OG Wasteland was the inspiration for Fallout. Also Slay the Spire is really fun.

It starts slow but once you get the hang of it, it’s a lot of fun.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

Do these expire? I have 2 months right now left. I may buy a few.

Nevermind they have limits. I was able to get someone to get me some under their Amazon account so I ended up with 7 total, 2+2 Amazon and 3 limit target, so 21 months for $146.93. I'll take a $3 monthly discount for almost 2 years!

I have to wait until my 3 month ultimate expires on 11/2/2023 then I can go ahead and add the 21 months, I don't want to switch to 2 months of ultimate per card. But they don't seem to have an expiration date.

Edit: You can do the target unlimited times 3 at a time. I went ahead for 3 more. 30 months for $209.90, I'll stop there.

The monthly thing in Xbox Rewards is gone now, making it just a little more of a headache to get a free month of GPU.
