Gah i gotta try and finish hades.


Or buy it with the GamePass discount.


Really strong second half of the month for me, two games I’ve been really looking forward to (Immortality and Tinykin), and four others that pique my interest (Coffee Talk, Commandos 3, Immortals and OPUS)

I couldn’t really get into Hades

It’s clearly very well made in many ways but I just didn’t find it fun, Dead Cells was much better imo

This second gamepass drop is very good

Spiritfarer is a very cool game. Everyone should check that out before it leaves at the end of the month.


I reviewed it back when it launched on Game Pass. Gave it a 9. It’s an amazing game, but quite long. So if there are multiple games you want to finish before they leave, Spiritfarer maybe isn’t the best option.


Shit, I’ve still to start with Spiritfarer. And I kinda want to check out Edith Finch again too, since it’s XSX now.

Obviously, I highly recommend Immortals Fenyx Rising. Such an excellent game. While I most likely won’t be playing it, Midnight Fight Express looks pretty good if you’re a fan of beat em ups.

These two weeks notice is kinda lame. Give us a month at least.


Play the games the month they arrive and you won’t be caught with the too short of a notice… Yeah, I know, much easier said than done. I’m hit by a few titles I wanted to try but never got around to and now they’re set to leave. :frowning_face:


Damn, I think all of those titles will go on my Play Later list!

I’ll give Myst a try from that leaving list and will buy Spiritfarer, as my daughter loves it. Personally, I found it a bit too long, but it’s a very nice game.

I got into Hades quite a bit, but that particular genre isn’t for me. It deserves one last shot though, as it’s a very well-made game indeed.

There’s just too many games for that, at least if Game Pass is not ones sole source of games.

I just don’t see how a months notice would be a problem.


I almost wonder when’s the deadline for a game’s renewal in the service.

Like we’ve seen games show up on the “Leaving Soon” list before but were then told that was an error (or something along those lines) and then they stayed on the service.

Yeah it all feels a bit loose, I can’t find the right word for it in English but disorganised maybe?

That wouldn’t be a bad way to put it.

At least on the public front it should look cleaner (and in their defense, I think they’ve been doing better these last few months).

Would really love to know if there is a “Inform Party X on Renewal of Title on Game Pass by Y Date” clause of some sort and if that isn’t done by the deadline something automatically kicks off on the Xbox store/Gamepass pages notifying of removal.

Someone else pointed it out but it’s something iv thought about before

Games that go off the service that are touch compatible or have dedicated touch controls will no longer be playable in such a way until MS are able to sort out playing games you own via xCloud

Kinda sucks for people who play games like Hades and others that way, hopefully they get that rolled out asap


Yep! If anything I just hope that makes it safe to assume most (if not all) those games will be part of the cloud program.

Damn. Really great games leaving the service.

Got lucky since I’ve already beaten the leaving games I care about.

Already had Coffee Talk (GwG) and Fenyx, so I’m hoping Immortality and Opus hit the mark.
