There’s a bunch of Codemasters games also coming to GamePass/EA Play on August 10:

Dirt 4
Dirt Rally
Dirt Rally 2.0
F1 2020
Grid

Not listed in the GamePass announcement for some reason.

Edit; oh, guess they were listed in the “in case you missed it” section.

https://www.purexbox...e_pass_ultimate


This ones on me, bought Dirt 4, Dirt Rally and Grid on sale a month or so ago.

And I bought F1 for my son as a Christmas gift last year too.

Remember how I said I went overboard on GameFlip? Here's for anyone that is curious:

Spoiler


I didn't run into any problems with any of the sellers.
I paid more than I wanted for Tracks (more than free), my Son HAD to have it.

Damn. You got some nice deals there. I probably should have gotten Death’s Door there with how dirt cheap it is.

But don’t regret preordering it. Devs deserve every cent. It’ll likely be in my Top 5 games of all time.

What are you doing? This isn't the Steam thread! Our console backlog is only supposed to number in the hundreds, not thousands!

Yeah, I remember the stuttering complaints and a number of posts here about how it wasn't fixed but wasn't sure if anything changed between now and then. I have the 360 BC versions of the games (on disc) so I wasn't sure if it was worth upgrading or not given those issues.
Thanks for taking the time to respond.


I recently played through the remastered games on Series X, and I didn't notice the stutter from the DF video. Don't know if it's fixed now, or I just couldn't tell.

The BC games on One X/Series X are actually not bad. They run at 60 fps if you unlock the framerate in the menus, some of the rare 360 games that had that option.

I got Deaths Door through Game Flip, so thanks for posting that! There was a promo code for a first purchase, so it cost me a little over $2. Can’t wait to give it a try.

Fantastic game.  Even did the umbrella run to get 100% cheevos.  Really hope they do a more expansive sequel. 

 

Xbox Wireless Controller – Aqua Shift Special Edition ($69)
Aqua shift is the first Special Edition Xbox Series X|S controller to feature rubberized side grips with a unique dual color swirl on every unit

I'm not feeling it.

The silk look is kind of meh, but I love those rubberized grips.  The Forza Xbox One controller was one of my faves because of those grips.

No wonder the websites shot. I did one question of the survey and it booted me. Gonna keep trying a few more times if not oh well.

Gears 5 Operation 8 released earlier with new achievements.  There was supposed to be a gap between when the download became available and when the backend servers updated.  Was going to try to start the game during that window to see if the achievement for reaching Legend 25 in an Operation would pop.  I see it's popped for others, including Antarael Dulacre, and is currently worth 51k on TA.  Forgot to try earlier (damn job), and the game currently doesn't load for me.  Just cycling on the loading screen.  I see a thread on the official forums that some accounts are getting stuck upon start up and progress is reset, though the backend servers this have the progress.  I see 4 people on TA have also already unlocked Seriously 5.0 Chapter 2, though that's supposed to require 2 maps that haven't released yet.  Hurray for testing!

 

The update also hasn't shown up on PC yet, at least for me.

So despite owning a bunch of paid Forza 7 DLC for a while now and being a Game Pass subscriber, I didn't get a code for Forza 7. I assume this is because it had been in my backlog until the day of the announcement or they don't count redeemed Ultimate DLC codes and freebie claims as purchases.
Reached out to support per the instructions in the article, fingers crossed I get a code.

Curse of the Dead Gods going up the same month as Hades is pretty interesting.

 

 

Bought Katamari when it was on sale for $10 recently, you're welcome.

Purchased Art of Rally 12 days ago...you're welcome...great game nonetheless.

Yeah, Diablo III no longer works so free weekend confirmed. Oh well, I have the disc. Just was hoping to be able to sit my ass on the couch and launch it. :)

Well, I grabbed a Series S from Target on a whim.  It's going to be my Forza Horizon 5 box.  I'll get a Series X someday, but I don't have a 4K TV yet so no rush (my Panasonic Plasma refuses to die).  I'll still have my One X hooked up (for games that are One X enhanced but not Series enhanced, like Dragon Quest 11), so the 360 is getting bumped off the A/V tower of consoles.

It looks like the Necromancer DLC still works though.

Why do Sea of Thieves and Space Jam get special controllers while Forza Horizon gets nothing? Give me a Mexico themed Horizon controller, por favor.

There is the Forza 6 controller and the Forza 911GT leather wrapped elite controller, but maybe we are due for another.

That Sea of Thieves controller is pretty awesome though, with the glow in the dark skull.

I got what I wanted from the summer sale except two I’m waiting to drop lower. I had never looked at Dying Light until browsing the sale but it looks promising. Just from the trailers, the gameplay(except the parkour) looks similar to Far Cry. I’m not much of a zombie game fan though State of Decay and Dead Rising are fun. Anyone have any input or recommendations about it? Thanks.

Well... have you ever played the original first Dead Island and Dead Island Riptide? Which I think are great fun "B" games, even more so co-op. It's totally convoluted, but even though "supposedly" a Dead Island 2 exists somewhere, the team that made the Dead Island 1 made Dying Light. So it's kind of the "real" Dead Island 2. There is definitely a FPS open world "Far Cry" vibe to the games.

Random thought, man the music in that Halo Infinite MP/Bot beta was really really good... I also liked the rest of it.

I did play some of Dead Island but not enough to say it was good or bad. From what I played It felt clunky but the game itself felt like a solid starting ground for a more polished and streamlined game. Sorta how AC 1 was for AC 2 or ME 1 for ME2.

I had bought a few games the day punch card went up and punch card updated a couple days ago, still needed $22. Bought Lego DC villains deluxe on my laptop to take it over the required spend, check the app on the Xbox and it has updated instantly lol.

Anyone try Trigger Witch yet? I’m usually not a huge fan of twin-stick shooters but I love that the world is basically copy/pasted from Link to the Past, and I need something else to finish the $50 summer sale thing.

EA Sent me an e-mail about a technical test going on something like the 12th through the 16th for pc, ps5 and series consoles for a few hours each day during those dates

I loved dying light and the expansion DLC. But I did play about 50% of it in co-op, which I think enhances it when dealing with the tougher zombies. But I enjoyed my solo sessions too. I wouldn’t go into it treating it like a shooter. There are guns, but they aren’t plentiful at first, and honestly the makeshift melee weapons are much more fun. The parkour takes a little getting used to, but it lets you get a tactical advantage on human enemies with guns, or let’s you get out of danger quickly. I’d say go for it, and if you don’t have anyone to co-op with I’m sure anyone on this thread including myself could join you. I need to dust off my skills to prep for dying light 2.
