Looking forward to trying the Tekken. Last played it on the original PlayStation I think, it was a long time ago anyway

The reason I bought an Xbox. One of the best things in gaming and will get even better next year when it will be on Xcloud, it will even have PS4 pad support.

Microsoft are doing a lot right these days, the next console could be a cracker.

Give peas a chance.
Say what you want about their first party lineup (and I know they've made some moves to bring studios in-house to improve that) but Microsoft's 'Netflixification' of the game space is what I think will really make waves in the industry over the next few years.

It's going to be a very interesting 2020 in gaming.

Sad that I can't play Age of Empires on xbox. Really wish Microsoft wise up and start putting some pc games on their bare bones console. Not all just some that could be possible. Good to see yakuza getting some love. Only played them this year and can't believe I've missed out on an epic series all these years.

If I have it on my Xbox can i get it on pc?
You need to sign up for ultimate game pass.

if you have gold and game pass they turn how many months you have left into ultimate game pass. So if you have 10 months of gold and 6 months of game pass then you get 16 months of ultimate game pass which includes game pass for PC and Xbox as well as Xbox live.

Yeh I have done that, just unaware of the PC side to be fair.

It's quite good. Don't quite get the buzz some people have for it. There's not loads on there that gets me excited but I've got my money's worth out of Rocket League and Outer Worlds and enjoyed Life is Strange.

It’s the games like devil may cry 5, monster hunter and Wolfenstein that really got me. Brilliant games that I just wasn’t willing to spend £50 each on but are well worth it through gamepass. I also completed all the life is strange games through GP, again a series I wouldn’t have paid for I think it’s brilliant.

I've enjoyed smashing My Friend Pedro the last couple of nights. As repetitive as it is, it's a real throwback and really smooth.

Has rave reviews so I don't have much to add, but my 6 months free game pass is going well so far!

Wait a minute, so next year I'll be able to play all these games on my shitty laptop by just taking this and subscribing to x-cloud? Shut up and take my money or is there something I'm missing?

Yes, you can. You could also do that now with PSNOW (I think).

Stream games on my shitty laptop? I don't have a ps4 or anything.

Edit - apparently it's only for residents of the UK, US and Canada.
So racist.
Also you can't play with keyboard and mouse which sucks.

I don't have PS4 either, but I'm pretty sure you can get PS NOW right now and stream, say God of War on your laptop. And you can do this with just a subscription and not a console. Any PS4 owners here know for sure?

I do know that with Xbox Game Pass next year that you will be able to do this 100 percent instead of buying a console.

Yeah, I looked it up but I'll definitely prefer the xbox one as I hate playing games with a controller.

Thanks, man.

Right then lads, looks like I’m not going to be in work anytime soon with this corona virus. Anyone got any games on game pass I should be playing?

Getting an Xbox one X next week. It'll be the first console I've owned since the 360! Excited, obviously, but also disappointed as I've just see that Just Cause 4 is being taken off the Game Pass library!! And Batman something or other. Curses.

Seen people talking about this Yakuza 0 so I'll give that a spin. 11 quid a month for gold membership + lots of games is fecking good in my opinion.

downloaded that the other day.


I don’t think I’ve ever played a Japanese game bar Final Fantasy X. Are they normally quite hard?
It has easy mode, so nah should not be too hard. It’s a good game you might enjoy it. Did you ever play Shenmue? It’s similar to that but better.

Have this on pc for £3.99 it’s a no brainer, loads of games better resolutions and frame rates and cheaper then a subscription on Xbox, cracking value

The new Xbox will be out in 6-7 months, can you not hold out?

Paying £300 or so for an X now probably isn’t wise. The new console will be fully backwards compatible too so you can play all the games you’ve missed this gen.

Be glad you've not had to suffer Just Cause 4. It's cack and a comeplete mess. Also looks pretty bad even on the X.

Play Yakuza 0, it’s a masterpiece storytelling!

You will be able to get the first month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for a pound. Depending on the week sometimes the offer can be multiple weeks for a pound. You will also be able to find a good deal for multiple months when that ends on hotukdeals, amazon or cdkeys.

Games wise as you say Yakuza 0 was added this week so thats a must, Yakuza Kiwami, and Yakuza Kiwami 2 will also be coming to game pass in next few months. Kingdom Hearts 3 was released this week. GTA 5, Forza Horizon 4, Wolfenstein and so many more. Great for indy games too.

Anyone play Sea of Thieves on this? Just downloaded it and it seems promising. Had a lot of fun pirating around with randoms.

Just bought Rocket League without checking Game Pass first. Suck a fecking idiot.

On the bright side, or maybe just adding to my stupidity, I now own it on every console.

I've been playing it on and off since launch and it has definitely improved over time. They've added a lot more world content that causes really good emergent moments of gameplay. I would still contend that the core gameplay loop is lacking as the basic tasks haven't really changed, but the addition of story content has been interesting and it uses some cool mechanics.

It's a game I would recommend to play with friends more than anything else because the best moments I've had were all with mates and the emergent moments are the special bits of the game. Try not to get caught in the grind of levelling up factions and make it an enjoyable experience.
