    Quite like the look of that night taxi(?) detective thing. Might well give that a go.

    Just played a bit of Night Call, and it has some merit. The conversations can be interesting, but it's all done in a comic book style, and really would be better with some good voice over. Sadly it's lacking in the audio side of things and gets a bit dull. I've only got to the second night, so maybe it picks up a bit, so I'll give it more of a try.

    The writing is pretty good so far though.

    I really enjoyed BattleTech, but hit a wall with it where I just couldn't progress. Most likely I was rubbish, but definitely a turn based strategy worth playing.

    Man, i was shit enough at command & conquer, so i ain't trying that!

    Populous was probably my limit there. Maybe syndicate if that counts! 😃

    Started Night call, someone needs to be hit over the head about basic colour design for UI, don't use yellow with white text

    The game seems very basic and boring so far, just listening people gibber on

    There are some interesting encounters in the taxi, but it is quite dull to play.

    Sadly I didn't get on with Observation either. I wanted to like it, and the story gets a pit interesting after the prologue. The 'interactive' bits are just woeful.

    It's turn based though, so no need of twitch reactions at all!

    C&C is also a pretty challenging game as these things go, simple as it may also have been (fresh from playing the remastered version).

    Wasn't the Messenger already on it? Did it leave and come back?

    I think The Messenger might have already been free on PC, but it wasn't available on console.

    Deleted Night call now, a noir detective game in Paris as taxi driver is a really great concept but this is fucking boring. So many taxi fair are just just mindless filler and the case stuff is just naff

    I think this has been asked before but can't find the answer.

    Is there a way to get the game pass for £1 and covert to 12 months by having live gold after you've done once already?

    My deal is expiring soon!

    I haven't done it myself but I have seen that it can be done, you have to let it run out then you can get the offer again. I don't know if it shows up straightaway or if you have to have left it for a while or what though.

    It looks like Dead Rising 4 and Blazing Chrome are leaving Game Pass in the middle of next month. Probably Middle Earth: Shadow of War too as it was added the same time as the others. Not bothered at all.

    Greedfall has been discounted to £9.99 so will probably join Game Pass after the sale.

    Dead Rising 4 was not good. Not good at all.

    Dead rising 4 is terrible, even after ending the capcom heroes (adds new moves to frank) its still a poor game

    edit
    timespinner (and Unavowed) on PC might be leaving, timespinner is worth a play

    Since I got Game Pass I find it very hard to buy games that most likely will come to Game Pass at some point. Greedfall seems a likely candidate but it's not much money. I can wait.

    Devil May Cry V and Kingdom Come: Deliverance are most likely leaving in August so I will focus on them for the next few months.

    Dead Rising 4 is good you heathens. I enjoyed it, though not as much as DR 3.

    I liked DR4, and I didn't miss a lot of the faff from the previous games.

    @MrFlay
    I totally agree re holding off buying games unless AAA and not MS property or I simply "have" to play on release, as like you say within a few months (maybe 6+) they will end up on gamepass. I think Greedfall will very soon, along with Control but as I say under £12 is no big deal.

    I have really tried getting into KC: D as the setting and world are done so very well, but I just can't get past the systems the game implements in the name of realism.

    @monseieur, Techno. I still have DR4 to start (I own it though) I really enjoyed DR3 even bought the dlc content, although only played through one of those years ago. It is so hard to return to a game if you have left for ant time!

    Do it DUFFMAN5, play DR4. As I mentioned in another thread, what I absolutely loved about DR 3 was the sidekicks. You help a person with their problem, they join you to slaughter zombies. You can even give them weapons and food (to restore health), you can have as many as 3 sidekicks at the same time. I mean what can be more cool than a scantily clad hot chick killing zobies alongside you? I have yet to find an RPG that does this better.
    DR 4 is different in this, but has a more interesting story imho and overall is more fluent in certain mechanics.
