We Happy Few and Lego Movie Videogame show Game Pass discounts on their marketplace pages.  We Happy Few doesn't have the "With Xbox Game Pass, play this game, or buy it to own" banner, though.  I already own the Lego Movie Videogame.

 

And some new drops.

Looks like We Happy Few and Lego Movie Videogame could become available to Game Pass at 7pm Eastern tomorrow.

Others on the Forza forums are also reporting missing cars and cash as well. 

I can connect to the rewards site, but not the forums.  Some other MS sites are also having trouble.  Gears forums, messages can't load on XBL profile page, either Major Nelson's site got a bit of a redesign or it's not able to retrieve some formatting info.

If you are in the looks for an indie game, might I suggest Pizza Titan Ultra? While not currently on sale, it is a fantastic use of time, especially if you love giant robots that deliver pizza to Bob Ross lookalikes.

You dig giant robots.

I dig giant robots.

We dig giant robots.

Chicks dig giant robots.

Nice.

I'm stubborn, so I still try to complete things without easing up on the difficulty.  Particularly if there are achievements involved.  Last night, I was trying to complete the Porsche bowling showcase in FM6.  Target score is 470k, my first run was ~450k, so I figured it would take a few more tries once I got the layout of the track.  Got to 465k, but after many failed attempts, the game suggested I lower the difficulty.  Fuck that.  Check TA for tips - suggestion was to lower the difficulty.  Nope.  An hour and a half later, I finally crack 490k.  To think I skipped the endurance showcase because it would take an hour or so to complete.

 

Still partway through my solo Insane run of Gears 4.  Will complete that.  Eventually.  Then there's the Inconceivable solo achievement.  Will attempt that without cheesing it with a casual partner.

 

I may no longer have the reflexes to handle something Cuphead, much less Super Meat Boy, Celeste or Cloudberry Kingdom.  Though I will keep trying.

 

Added the Bethesda tables (already had the others on sale), Sine Mora EX and Stories of Bethem to the backlog.  May add Wonder Boy and Ys as well.

The Game Pass quest tracking is off for me.  It shows me having completed the one with 21 achievements, but I haven't popped that many since the start of the year.  If you go back to Dec 30th when I was still trying to complete the TA challenge, I'd have more than 21.  Also, the genre one shows me with the shooter and action / adventure ones completed, but not the sports / racing, while FH4 appears to be the only game I've got an achievement in since the start of the year that qualifies for that quest.

 

Countdowns.
