    I'm kinda liking the new dashboard update. It's a little more functional than before, and at least it seems faster.

    Then again, the old dashboard also seemed faster at first, then after a few weeks it got super slow for some reason.

    I'm home alone most of this weekend, so quite fancied settling in with an MMO.

    Ended up paying 15 quid to early access this new Bless Unleashed game. Good few hours in now at level 10 and it's actually surprisingly decent. Feels like a "proper" MMO with plenty of quests, collecting wolf sacks and exploring a big old world. The combo based combat is pretty cool too. Just feels comfortably old skool and miles better than Black Desert Online.

    Definitely think it could grindy later on, but worth a look when it pops up free next week. Has potential.

    I will point that it does have some dreadful Corean character design though. The shitty little imp people things can fuck off. The world design is a little bland so far too.

    In these dark days of working from home, would anyone be interested in some sort of EG games evening akin to Halo Mondays but without Halo and not on Monday?

    My console has the occasional habit of powering up by itself once in a while. It's set in energy saving mode, so this really shouldn't happen.

    Good thing I'm going to upgrade soon (if the virus doesn't screw everything up).

    Think it was to do with a new beta dash as post update I see parties are even easier to find now as ďhappening nowĒ is at the top of your friends blade and you can jump straight into others games or parties in one click I assume.

    Not sure if this is already common knowledge but after realising Forza 7 is full of ramming idiots I was looking at getting a different racing game

    Project Cars 2 is showing as free with Gold for me..

    No official announcement from MS yet, but it seems that the first two GwG titles are Project Cars 2 and Fable Anniversary.

    The latter works for me, I wanted to try it.

    Yeah, but since 360 games on Gold are yours to keep, I guess that at least makes it permanent even after your Game Pass expires.

    @Darth_Flibble that would work for me, I know Blinx has a bad rap but I've always kinda wanted to try it.

    Also, in these situations, you can usually just switch to a different region store and download the game. Chances are the Xbox One is region free for OG Xbox and downloadable game, whereas the Xbox 360 was not.

    You can change region and get both, can't quite remember how but I'm sure Google knows

    Edit- beaten to it :)
