Awesome. I hope 6 soon follows.

Hard to know but I'd imagine Sega will gauge how well these release do. If they're a success presumably they would bring the upcoming ports of 3, 4, and 5 at some point. 

 

The other angles I see would be a faster port of 6 since it's on the same engine as Kiwami 2, or maybe a focus on Like A Dragon (7) since that focuses on a new character. We could see a curve-ball port of Judgment as another option, but I don't think it sold as well as Yakuza normally does.

Someone needs to make a guide of how to use game pass as the quality library grows I’m lost in what to play, how to play, etc. should I dabble in everything for 20 minute intervals? Make a list and power through one by one? So many games and no time.

I recently got a switch lite and I finished luigis mansion 3 so I’m feeling pretty accomplished but my backlog on switch has me interested in abandoning Xbox simply due to my giant backlog.

It's not a glitch, just how the system is set up. The moment it goes live at 3 pm on Dec 3rd you can gift it.

 

Thanks for the info. Yet another thing I have to wait for *sigh* - was incredibly excited to play tonight when the leak came out this morning, but after this long, a few more weeks will be ok.

Gamepass is definitely quantity over quality. There are a lot of good games on gamepass, but not nearly as many as people hype up. For every big Gamepass update, theres one MAYBE two games that are worth playing, and those you can definitely play before the next batch.

Here's how I manage it.  When I first signed up, I went through all the games and hid the ones that I've already completed/played or never want to play.  Whenever I finish a game (whether that means completing it or deciding it's not for me), I uninstall and hide them.  As of right now, there are only 60 games showing in Ready to Install when I go into Game Pass.

 

When they add new games, I do the same review process.  Anything I've already played or don't ever plan to play gets hidden.

 

I look through the remaining games and see which ones I'm most excited to try out (alternatively, ask yourself, "which games, if they removed them from GP today, would I be most sad about or regret not having tried?").  Then I install the top 2 or 3 of those games.  Play/try them.  Uninstall and hide when done.  Then repeat.

 

Also, if you do Rewards, I would recommend not playing new games right away.  They usually have Reward quests for new games the next month.  So all the new games they added today -- I'm not bothering to install or play them til I see what the December reward quests are.

Getting two free months of GamePass Ultimate makes this the best Mixpot since the early ones. The Discord servers I actually use already have maximum boosts so that's about all the use I get.
 
A quick look at EA Access shows that might has well not have been included. I assume A Way Out doesn't include the friend pass thing and I own every other game I would care about.
 
I guess this isn't technically the Mixpot if you had to have Ultimate to take advantage of it though.

How did you get 2 free months of Game Pass? The Mixpot is only supposed to contain Sea of Thieves and Gears Pop crap, and a chance to win a year of Game Pass.

Never thought about hiding the games in the gamepass tab, only did it with the ready to install. Just cleared up over 100 listed GP games and it looks much better. Thank you for the advice.

Downloading it now, but the low ratings put a bit of a damper on my spirits.

I might jump on Control, but for some reason I thought it launched for $40 so I'm hoping for something closer to $25. I think Shadowkeep can go lower by xmas as well. I think my spacebucks are safe for the time being.
 

Control will be $25 at Target Black Friday, I'm planning to try to grab it then.

Just realized that MS put out updates for 360 consoles, XB1 consoles and XB1 controller firmware yesterday while downloading the new GwG games.     Wanted to mention it in case anyone else missed it, since the Xbox One updates don't mention unless you look for it.

How did you get two free months of Ultimate? 

 

I thought the mixpot was for Gears Pop money, Sea of Thieves and a chance to win 12 months of ultimate?

i assume he's talking about the 3 free months from the free Discord Nitro, which converts to 2 months if you already have ultimate.

Downloaded Nascar Heat 4 due to it being free for the weekend and man oh man do I missed the PSOne Nascar games. This new game sucks with crashes and my favorite thing to do is go the wrong way to plow into cars just to see the chaos. I loved seeing how many cars I could take out before my car gets wiped out and to see who wins the race by merely surviving my death driving. This game, I try to doing it and nothing really happens except minor car damage and tougher car controls.

Guess I missed out on GPU for free. Didn't even know about watching anything, and I don't use Discord. They really should start advertising these things on the dash.

it wasn't a mixpot, it's just gifts for current Ultimate members. Current members can go to the Store > Memberships > get more info, and it shows up with the games with gold/ free play days.

Anyone own the Fortnite controller?  It looks pretty cool online... wondering how dark it actually is.  I'm hoping it goes on sale for $40 for black friday

Last year the holiday hotdeal started November 15th, was 7000 for $10 3500 for $5.

I figured it would be the same this year but with no hot deal last month I’m not optimistic.

It is VERY dark. I don't play fortnite (still need to list the code on ebay) but thought it looked sweet. I wish it was a little lighter. I thought I got a black controller at first since the room was a bit dark.

A few new things are up in the rewards app.

  • Xbox Weekly Treasure - 100pts (top of the quests area for me)
  • An invitation for all gamers - 50pts
  • X019 game sale: Spend $40 Get 4,000 pts.
What's the name of the rewards app
