    Yup, can't sign into Live which means all of my games are unplayable currently.

    Since when have digitally bought games required an online connection? Pretty sure I don't need one on PS4.

    Odd, when I checked the "xbox console companion" app it wouldn't sign into live. New games wouldn't download, but all 3 games I already downloaded worked fine.

    No you're right they dont, though its something of a concern when we go all in with streaming.

    Yeah but last night's outage stopped me playing Forza 7 on my PC and all the games on my Xbox that I actually own, so I don't understand why that happened.

    I dont have an xbox. Is there some equivalent to the PS4's primary console option? On PS4 if the PS4 is set to primary games work offline, if not you need to be connected.

    I'd have to check the settings, but like I say this wasn't just my Xbox it was my pc aswell.

    Hereís a thing about rare replay btw, all the 360 releases install separately and launch without the disc so I assume in theory would be yours to keep?
    If your gamepass etc expired.

    I'm sure it is coincidental but the 3 games I have downloaded and played via GP so far have all crashed on occasion and have graphical glitches.

    The app has issues (but is a beta), but the main game ive had problems with is Metro exodus. Getting it to load, crashes, loss of save, etc.

    @waggy79 Is this on PC? Have you tried closing the Xbox App immediately after clicking the play button for Metro? I left the app running in the background once and it tanked my performance, and the game at one point hung. Didn't crash, but there was 20 seconds where I thought it would.

    With the Xbox App closed, I've not had problems so far.

    Yes it is, so Duff you'll probably be ok as you play on xbox right?
    I've tried a few things after reading the forums and got about an hour on it the other day.
    I wasnt exactly crazy about the other Metros so probably wasnt worth the effort tbh.

    I started playing Conkers Bad Fur Day as I've always wanted to play it, but the controls are horrendous. Is it worth upgrading to Live and Reloaded?

    Dunno, as they do start without the disc being present, basically they arenít on the disc And possibly gives you digital ownership once you click through replay itself. It may be different for the game pass version but I could sell my rare replay disc and still play them. Now some of them I do own digitally (banjo 1&2, perfect dark) from the 360 days but I have loaded pdzero and nuts and bolts from hard drive with no replay disc in the machine as they all install separately. No biggie but a curious thing is all.

    I'm downloading Rare Replay but I've got two of most games downloading (Kameo, Viva Pinata, Viva Pinata TIP, Perfect Dark, etc.) with a normal 360 version and a Rare replay version.

    Can I cancel any of these? What do I actually have to download?

    Iím playing Crackdown 3 on the 1X via game pass, expecting a crazy open world that if you had to describe in one word would be ďjankyĒ and thatís exactly what is.

    So glad I didnít drop money on this, yucky 30fps soupy controls but itíll be my guilty go-to for 10 minute bursts when Iím bored.

    I had this also for ages, just delete one of each itís all good, I deleted the replay badged ones to keep the cleanest tiles.

    @SnackPlissken I prefer the look of the N64 version, but there's no denying the Xbox remake controls and plays a little better. I do find some of the new additions a little annoying (having random enemies to kill around the place is just a pain), but in the end, if you just can't get used to the N64 game, the Xbox version offers a slightly more modern take for sure.

    Still, it's the same game overall, so it's up to you whether that's worth paying a tenner.

    The camera controls really are awfuli. The original, it is unbelievable some of the stuff it got away with especially on a Nintendo console. I booted the rare replay one again last night and got literally called a ďtwatĒ by an ingame character. I can only assume outside uk they didnít understand what it meant.

    I still donít understand why they didnít put the 360 one in it. I can only assume because itís a remake rather than a remaster.

    Anyone know how easy or not it is to get PC Game Pass games going through Steam/Steam Link?

    I like the way Steam makes non-Xbox Console controllers work properly, and also playing PC games on the telly!
