Risky's Revenge is a port of a DSi game with Sprite graphics and ran at 60 FPS, I seriously doubt there are any real upgrades. Maybe a higher resolution like Sonic Mania had, and that didn't really make a difference since it was sprites.

So new Star Ocean game announced for nearly everything is a reminder I own a bunch of those games and maybe I should play one.

Will this only be the second Star Ocean game for Xbox consoles?

I Believe so, the last few on PS4 have just been rereleases as well if memory serves.

FYI, for those who got Guardians of the Galaxy, there is a 250 point punchcard under the show all section on the Xbox rewards. Activate it and earn one achievement.

This may not fix it, but when I had a similar issue turning on auto-renew actually resolved it.  For some reason, like you, connecting and using Live and Game Pass was an issue, but switching on auto renew basically 'tricked' the system into checking to get the subscription going, but I already 'had' time left.  I just have to remember to turn it off when my Game Pass expires. 
 
The concern is that if you activate auto renew, will it just bill you and think nothing is there?  That's the worst case situation.  Maybe remove your credit card, or connect an expired Credit or Visa Gift Card first (I think that's what I did to test it).  I have not had issues since.

Thanks for this. I turned on auto renew and now it's working.

The Guardians game is basically an evolved, big budget and vastly improved Tell Tale game and I love it.

So do you have auto-renew turned on right now?  I'm curious how it will behave if you turn it back off.


Unfortunately, yes. I cannot play on my 360 without it on. Even with the subscription, it caused both my 360 and 360 backwards compatibility to not work.

Hopefully I'll remember this trick in 1.5 years when my subscription ends. Who am I kidding, I'll forget it in 30 seconds.

After playing multiple many-hours-long games, Mighty Goose (recent Game Pass add) is a welcome silly action Metal Slug tribute.

 

EDIT: Also, good news, The Forgotten City looks like a short playthrough, HowLongtoBeat lists it as 8 hours for completionists. This increases the odds of my playing it significantly.

There’s a bunch of new GamePass games up today:

Alan Wake's American Nightmare
Backbone
Bassmaster Fishing 2022
Nongunz: Doppelganger Edition
Project Wingman
The Forgotten City

I had forgotten about Project Wingman. Just played a few minutes and seems like a worthy entry in flight combat games. Pretty on par with Ace Combat - minus all the typically over dramatic cutscenes in those games.

I finished The Forgotten City very recently and would say that time framing is right - took me somewhere between 7 and 8 hours to complete. It's a solid game. Definitely recommend

I Don't remember Left4Dead ever being as difficult as Back4Blood the more I play it. Took two hours for me and my friends to get past the damn fix the jukebox so these six people can get inside a whole ass school bus and then do it again for these other six idiots. This was also on lowest difficulty and Jesus it just took too damn long.

It is rather difficult, the AI director spits out the tall boy zombies almost as often as regular zombies.  Even just walking through a normal part of the level, not a you alerted the horde situation, things can go to hell very quickly with many special infected spawning at once.  My wife and i were playing it but she finds it stressful to the point of not really being interested in playing more of it.

Yeah, I'm not so sure L4D or B4B are my jam anymore. I think I prefer the pacing of State of Decay 2.

 

My Wife and I used to play L4D a lot back in the day, but I think it was for the lack of anything better. We end up going back to State of Decay 2 instead of B4B. It helps that they keep adding content too.

Fairly mainstream streamer/YouTuber Pokimane announced she is joining as chief creative officer for the company co-running EVO with Sony. Maybe some mainstream eyes could save Marvel vs Capcom or Killer Instinct.

Biomutant shows that you can download it with Gold I expect it to be part of a free weekend like Diablo was the other time not actually a  GWG title..

Yeah, one of my friend's was getting plain tired of the game. In L4D it felt like majority of the special infected the goal was to get you to coordinate as a team and sticking together by primarily having enemies that will basically mess you up if you stray from the group. B4B basically all the special infected are just there to annoy you and feel like shitty difficulty ramp ups. The fact they can do so much damage and really only way to kill them quick is to hit their bullshit weak spots repeatedly make them just the worst and not fun. If they got rid of the "aim at their weak spots" or reserved that for much higher difficulties I'd get it, but as it is now they kinda ruin the game.

Thanks for the heads up, I've been wanting to try that game out.

 

Meanwhile, I've been enjoying Moonglow Bay on GP. I like the pacing, and I haven't had any major issues or bugs, keeping my fingers crossed.

I recommend it If you're feeling for a chill, Stardew Valley type game and you're ok with voxel graphics.

B4B is definitely harder, but the card system plays heavily into getting much easier each time you run it. Things like the whole team healing for 20 seconds whenever someone goes down, etc.

Make sure to do the team quality/quantity upgrades. Nades can one hit kill a tall boy. Upgraded razor wire is also insane, it covers a huge area and helps in most situations.

Always wonder where to post about Gamepass for PC since it's not steam but not XBOX per se. Just wanted to recommend people try out Age of Empires 4 as it is available now on Gamepass for PC. I am more of an old school RTS guy (haven't messed with the total war stuff too much) and it seems like a nice modern take on the old system.
