Who has time to play a brand new release here? I still have the first game in my backlog.

You forget that this is a FREE new release, which takes priority over anything you paid to add to your backlog.

I'm enjoying it. A lot like the first, and Left4Dead, but the levels seem more open and interesting. I was also surprised progress during the beta carried over, and it always puts you in a good mood to get a couple hundred gamerscore just for logging in.

Well, it is multiplayer game so might as well toss the first game into the trash pile and move on to #2. 😁

That's what significant others are for, playing games nobody else will play with you because everyone is playing the sequel.. My girlfriend and I are currently working through the original Crackdown (Hey, I did beat it many years ago so it technically wasn't in my backlog, though the sequel is still in the backlog), Saints Row The Third, and we recently started playing Gears, we are now on the third installment. One day we will only play recent releases. Ha! At least we are working on a couple newer games, both The Division and Wildlands, so we aren't totally stuck in the past.

Dolby Vision support on Xbox One announced for preview members!!! Apparently just for Netflix for now but I can’t see how they would not eventually enable it for 4K Blu-rays if the encoding is in place.

Store Parser picked it up tonight (looks like the prior free period ended on the 3rd) and I didn't have it.  Though it could've been one of those cases where the web site doesn't properly show ownership.

For the racers out there, Ride 2 seems to be a good buy. About 3 hours of gameplay and the only negative I’ve found so far is the loading times. I’m playing on a S so the X might be better. However, plenty of bikes, classes, and tracks to choose from and nice physics. If you dig bikes and racing, don’t be like me and wait a year for this to go back on sale (but I did save $6 for waiting that year). Oh, and a bunch of free DLC of bike packs.

I believe it was free for around a week when Donken got it. I got an email today saying it was free for "phase two" of road to battlefield v with a second chance to pick up DLC for free.

Does Halo 3 ODST ever go on sale.  I know it's only $4.99 but I don't really want to buy digital since I prefer physical but it's the same price either way and the MCC add on has been enhanced. I have no rush to get it but I beat Halo 3 2 months ago and was told to play ODST before I play 4 so am wondering if it's ever cheaper than $4.99.

Dude... just buy it. There's a solid 25-40 hours of fun there depending on how much you like firefight.

If you’re talking about the 360 version, I know it was on sale sometime last year because I own it. I don’t think I’ve seen it on sale since.

I have the MCC for Xbox One and ODST is an add on that was remastered for it.

Is firefight an online multiplayer thing? I don't have gold if it is.

You can play it by yourself but it's better with friends. I don't believe it was included with the MCC version anyway.

Finished Brothers: a Tale of Two Sons, was good but glad it is over controls were annoying me.

Going to play some Sherlock Holmes next. There are 2 Sherlock games:

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments and Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter.

Was thinking of playing Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter but have not played the previous one.

Do these games connect at all?

I don't recall them connecting but being the same developer and by nature of the IP some of the same characters. There are 2 different voice actors for Sherlock in those 2 games so even less of a feeling of connective tissue. I haven't tried Devil's Daughter much yet but enjoyed Crimes and Punishment a fair amount. Kind of a glorified hidden object game but it seems to review better than Devil's Daughter.

Ha well Overcooked wasn't really cooked that long, but only being on Game Pass for 3 months has to be the new record for shortest stay. Ultratron is actually a pretty great twin stick shooter since we've been talking about those so much.

Maybe it's going GWG? Since the new one is soon.

Saved you a click, these 5 are leaving:
- DiRT Rally
- Overcooked
- Pharaonic
- So Many Me
- Ultratron

So many me was a bitch to 1000gs it and I started on pharaonic but never finished it due to lack of inrerest.

I been hanging onto a free one month of game pass to try and I redeemed it this month. Unfortunately I hadn't had the time I wanted to to play the games I initially downloaded until yesterday and then I found out that bomber crew was being added to the service on day one. Man is that a fun but tense game. I played a few missions yesterday and I really enjoyed it. It is a cool strategy game.

 

I also downloaded Next Up Hero, JumpJet Rex, Kingdom New Lands and Human Fall Flat. Not sure if I will have the time to play all of these before my free month expires but I think I may just start using this service in the future on Xbox. I've always been a game buyer and I have a huge collection of games but yesterday I was convinced that game pass may just work for me even with my large backlog.

 

I wish i would have used my free trial earlier but there was not that many games on the service that really interested me. I would have bought a six month subscription when it was on sale. Anyway I will be saving up some bing point for another free month and be on the lookout for some deals for game pass in the future.

I really enjoyed Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments when it was GWG a while back.  Went on to 1000/1000 it and have been excited to try Devil's Daughter if it goes GWG in the future.  If you like the Sherlock Holmes mythos and storytelling, I'd recommend starting with the 2nd one first

I don't think they're connected other than loosely since the same characters but Devil's Daughter completely revamped Watson, now it's basically Jude Law from the films

Mine arrived yesterday, and the free blueprint art thing of one of the exotic weapons is pretty nice in terms of quality. The box they sent it in, though, was so big that I'm pretty sure they spent more on shipping than I did on the game. They really want to get rid of them! Likely ahead of a new retail edition w/ all the expansions ahead of the big one in September.
