Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

So I'm looking for a game for the Ally. BG3 doesn't work because you need to find crevices. Starfield doesn't work because the save syncing is wonky and it corrupted my save and I had to start from scratch lost 3 hours (no issues with BG3 back and forth). These are part of GP and I'm not planning to play them on the PC (got too many games lined up for PC), which of these would you recommend first?

Pillars of Eternity I
Pillars of Eternity II
Dragon Age Origins
Dragon Age II
Dragon Age Inquisition
Tormend Tides of N
Skyrim
Oblivion
Mass Effect Trilogy

COCOON is out tomorrow (maybe tonight?) and will be on Game Pass.


It doesn't look like it's available for pre-download yet, but should pop up soon enough.

Reviewers seem to like it.

Thanks Dan. I had posted here a month or so about how cool the game looked but then forgot about it. Will go check some reviews now.

It’s getting stellar reviews. Not my kind of game though.

midnight in New Zealand is common, but not always the case. Depends on the publisher's release plan, and other factors.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

NZ is the first time zone, so it's the earliest that a preloaded game can unlock by changing your Xbox time settings. Now as to when Xbox games can be added to Game Pass, that varies. Wait and see. It will be today.

New Zealand starts every calendar day before every other country due to their time zone. Games on Xbox generally target either a coordinated release time OR some specified local time in each zone OR some variation.
Midnight may not be the actual release time, but it has sometimes been the case, which is why some games show up in NA “early.”

there are also a bunch of games that, when “local time” is the release method, you can access early by changing your console’s time zone. Thousands of dorks (myself included) have switched our Xboxes to NZ’s time zone to play a game early. Doesn’t work every time, but often enough. And again… it depends on the release plan and other factors.

18 minutes into Lamplighters League and it's just boring. Not feeling. I LOOOOOVED Rabbids, it's the same gameplay, but with clunky controls. I think if it was easier to maneuver around I'd like it more.

I don't know if 18 minutes is enough to be bored. Most of the reviews I've watched on YouTube talk about how fun the game is.

I'm mostly annoyed at the controls.

You might want to wait on it for a couple months then. The general consensus is that it's fun, but buggy. It might improve after a couple months.

That's a good idea. I think I'll shelve it for now.

I guess better than the 8 minutes you gave Cocoon.

Well that was enough to know Cocoon wasn't my kind of game. I'm starting to not play the games that don't grab me wholly because I've seen that there's plenty of games that do.

I saw a picture of it and knew it wasn’t my type of game.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

I also will play anything on Gamepass that comes out (except for like Payday 3, I tried Payday 2 and didn't like it) and stuff like that. The last few games I've personally picked like BG3 and Starfield that I paid or would have paid money for I have played a ton.

I'm totally digging Lamplighters League and Payday 3. Both are great additions to GP.

Re: Xbox Game Pass/Game Pass Ultimate

So I spent about ten more minutes with it and I'm going to stick with it because it has an interesting story. Couple of bugs I found, after every fight you have to find your companions and regroup them. And it will randomly go into battle mode and you have to pass your turn to exit.
