    Oooh - just spotted Darksiders III, so downloading that now. I enjoyed the first two games.

    And it's a bit shit. I might give it another try later on, but it feels clunky and lacks the sparkle of the previous games.

    Change to classic combat, if you haven't already. The soulslike rip off combat is turd.

    And, yeah, I started playing this today. It's ugly as fuck and proper janky but... I dunno... It's alright.

    I got a few hours into it before giving. It's just so fucking bland.

    It seems distinctly average. The checkpoints seem far away and there's no achievements which should be standard by now. Unimpressed.

    I just want to point out that, for the first time in ages, thanks to Game Pass, I have played and completed more than 10 games released this year.

    That end of the year top 5 list is gonna be real easy this time.

    Witcher 3 (standard version) is different to the GOTY version in terms of saves and achievements

    I think GP is one of the reasons I've completed less games.

    Looks like Pathologic 2 is coming on December 12th, both console and PC.

    Already have it on Steam but I'll check it out on console, just to see how it runs. It's not very well optimized on PC. Still my game of the year.

    So, I've just got one of those doorbuster all digital Xbox Ones for 99 euros, can I just do Gamepass 1 trails with new accounts ad infinitum? Don't plan on buying any games for it.

    @grassyknoll I mean you can, but you don't want to, you will lose your achievements, friend lists etc every time you switch.

    @BigOrkWaaagh I'll not be getting Xbox Live, playing multiplayer (will not have a friend's list even) or care about achievements. Will just play the single player games. Could work out being a real bargain.

    It is also possible they could suss out what you are doing if the same payment method is used for new accounts again and again and are all signing into the same Xbox. Whether or not they actually bother doing that or not I don't know.

    Even if it goes to plan you would have to make sure to not be half way through a game when it was time to change accounts as the saves are tied to the account. You would also have to redownload the games each time.

    @Spectral Currently got a 1 euro trail for 3 months, so that should last me a while. Between cards and PayPal I've got 12 methods I can use, so it should keep me going for quite a while. It's not a service I'll become attached too like Spotify or something where your playlists are important. If I like a game and want to fully own it, I'll buy it if it's available on PS4 or Switch.

    Worth mentioning that the current deal for 1 for 3 months is temporary. No guarantee that it will still be there in three months, in fact it probably won't.

    That said, there are regularly deals on Game Pass. And they are usually accessible to both new subscribers and people who have already subscribed before (but not to current subscribers). No need to mess about so much. In the past 12 months I have been subscribed for at least 6 months total, and always for peanuts.

    I think that's a great thing. Don't feel compelled to slog through boring or over-long games, since I didn't directly pay for them. Overall provides more fun and less tedium.

    Darksiders 3 is really fucking bland, the souls like combat is awful (which was their selling point at launch) It lacks anything to make it stand out, 1 had the zelda type weapons and portal guns, 2 had the rpg loot.

    Is it worth playing Gears 4 or shall I just go straight to 5? I quite like Gears but I don't need loads of it unless 4 is really good.

    Yeah. 4 is the series on vanilla autopilot. Bored the arse off me. 5 is far, far superior. In terms of the campaign anyways, never played the online in either.

    Reach will be available tonight, finally.

    Free for subscribers of course, but there's a 20% discount for buyers (I thought it didn't apply to new releases?), so it's just 8 euro. I elected to buy in the end. Gotta get the whole series on one console.
