Whenever I lose a streak I'm bummed for a few minutes before realizing I'm bummed over 15 cents and don't care. In short, I am very rich and own several golden yachts that I use to hunt genetically engineered animals on.

Imagine being that wealthy and not hunting humans.... #fakerichperson

Peasant! Once you hunt a scorpion giraffe you never want to hunt college graduates looking for an internship!

Definitely. If they can put it on a Xbox equivalent of a Fire Stick, they can put it on the VCR model, and it may even be more optimized since the hardware is all standard. Pretty damn cool.

 

Streaming for Game Pass games on the console itself would / will also save HDD space or let you demo a game before you commit to an 80gb download. 

Did anyone mention being able to start playing something you are downloading? Probably would hinder your download but still might be better than staring at that status bar or trying to play something else while you wait.

 

I'm on a 1129 day streak and I have nightmares that I forgot to do it.  I always have it done by 10 AM and one time when I was in the 700's, I lost all power and internet and had to drive 30 minutes to my aunts house to use her wifi.  

You may have a problem and need to check into that...

Is it possible to remove an update to a game?

Only if you have the disc version of the game, delete and reinstall with your system disconnected from the internet to prevent downloading it.

Made my final purchases from the E3 sale.

Bought Hitman 2 Gold, Civ 6, Street Fighter Anniversary

Used only bing points so $0 out of pocket.

If you mean to roll back the version of the game to n-1, I don't think there's a way of doing that.

Almost hit 100 days in a row with the bing daily sets and some how missed it yesterday. Its stupid how much its bugging me that my streak has reset.

I somehow missed a day and lost about a two year or so long streak and it bugged the hell out of me. After I thought about it, I was more pissed I didn’t get my points from the daily stuff than the actual streak.

It seems Mass Effect 2 in the Legendary Edition doesn't stop the play timer during suspend mode. Currently clocked in at 145 hours after the first Collector mission.

 

That's been my experience with every game I suspend. Pillars of Eternity even gets confused what day it is, I recently noticed when I resume it and make a save the day and time is in the past, not the current time and date like it was when I was playing on my One X. Though that game has issues, most achievements are impossible to get unless you never quit the game which is why I'm missing quite a few I should have.

Did we learn E3 awards mean nothing after Cyberpunk?


Is cyberpunk truly bad? Does the world/lore, story, and gameplay suck or is bad like how people claimed fallout 76 was bad? Fallout was good to me and it’s just better now.

I also lost my 600+ day streak over Memorial Day weekend.  My Xbox app streak is still going strong though.

Cyberpunk is great......on Series X. The problem with Cyberpunk is that it's a virtually unplayable mess on PS4 and Xbox One. I really like it and going through a second playthrough now but I really hope this IP survives the nightmarish launch and PR it had to endure.

I’m about 8 hours into Yakuza Like a Dragon, and it’s an excellent game. I never paid attention to the series, but I decided to download Dragon after it was added to Game Pass. I am really hoping the story stays as good or gets better because I’m hooked!

Just wait until you try to save Nancy, the game just gets better and better

The leaks and exploring point to a good game that was hacked down to fit out the door. Story is ultimately underwhelming and not unique. There's no accounting for taste though, little like 76.

Last day for the deals unlocked punch card and it still has not counted my purchases. Guess I will have to contact support like I did for the last punch card.

That's a lot of good games leaving. In fact, they're all good games. Didn't they say they still have new additions to announce for this month? Hopefully some great ones take their place.

These are great games. Finally.


Just 100% the first game on switch the other day. Great game, and worth it to get 100% completion for the good ending. Took me about 10hrs without a guide and few backtracks for missing items. Shouldn’t take too long if you use a guide. Looking forward to playing 2 and 3.

Wow that’s the best lineup to leave Game Pass in awhile. It’s odd that effort was put into touch controls for Battle Chasers on xCloud, only for it to leave the service a few months later.

Outer wilds is a game I just couldn’t get into but respect it a lot. If the movement wasn’t so wonky I might have enjoyed exploring more

Odd question but does anyone know if I'm playing a game through Steam (Civilization 6) will I still be able to unlock Xbox achievements in it? Thinking about picking up the platinum edition but it has a Steam activation code and I'm a sucker for achievements so not sure if it's better to just wait and by it on sale through Microsoft at some point.

Since there is a mobile version of the game anyways that already used touch controls I don't think they had to spend too much time implementing that feature.

Microsoft seems to be selecting certain games from xCloud to tailor touch controls around. Different games seem to have different touch control layouts, so effort from Xbox is definitely put in to these touch games.

A part of me feels I should try and go through The Messenger again, but then I'm reminded I'm a weak baby gamer now who is terrible at many games.
