Back 4 Blood comes out on the 10th/11th. That's a game I was going to pay retail price for, so it covers the cost of my Game Pass subscription for 6 months right there.
I let mine lapse, I'll probably pick it up again next time they do a deal. Managed to get Psychonauts 2 finished before it expired.
At this point Destiny 2 has oodles and oodles of content. If anyone hasn't played it, you can get lost for months playing it. That doesn't even count the upcoming DLC.
Never played Outriders, but Destiny 2 is part FPS, part RPG, and part loot grinder. It's been around for 4 years (it feels longer, though) and has amassed tons and tons of content during that time. It was pretty decent sized out of the gate, but it's MMO-level big now. The key is that it's also good content. The game is fun and there are so many secrets and hidden thing to do that it'll keep you occupied for months if not years.
No. They "vaulted" all the content that originally came out with the game, so it is impossible to experience the story anymore. They are about to vault even more content now that the new expansion is about to come out. I quit playing the game the day they decided to start removing content. I don't think I'll ever buy a Bungie game again due to that nonsense.I am interested in giving Destiny 2 a try again - I have it, but I never really got into it. Is it possible to start now and do the old content in order, see all the old story stuff? I have pretty much every season pass up through the current one etc.
I have to admit that GamePass is looking nice, but until they integrate with Steam (which would be very easy - you'd get the Steam version of any GamePass attributed game, ideally shown in a different color to show you only "own" it as part of a sub etc.) I can't bring myself to pay for something that requires yet another proprietary store/launcher/application. Valve is clearly open to the idea as EA Play subscriptions are viable on Steam instead of just Origin, MS has seen the success of their stand alone titles like Sea of Thieves and Halo MCC on Steam, so I can't understand why they continue to drag their feet - its a rare win-win for everyone. Steam gets a percentage of subscriptions that sign up through them and more users on its platform, MS gets the huge Steam audience and money from those like me who do not wish to use their Xbox app and prefer Steam instead, Players get good assortment of games for what seems to be a reasonable price, developers/publishers get more sales as related to GamePass etc. Ah well, guess I'll have to keep waiting.

It blows Outriders out of the water. Outriders is a cheap third-person diablo clone. Destiny is a first person diablo clone with space-magic!
In all seriousness, Destiny 2 is a lot of fun. I was disappointed with it at launch and stopped playing pretty much right away. I just picked all the expansions up for half off a couple weeks ago and I'm loving it. There really is an crazy amount of content. If you enjoy the gameplay you won't get bored. It's free to play just to test the mechanics for yourself, nothing to lose.
Wait...what? I thought there was supposed to be some person you spoke to in the main "hub" that would let you see content from every era of the game or whatever? Maybe that was before the "vaulting"?
Middle of February, if I remember correctly. You can check by going to Plans in the Xbox app. If you click Join it should show you when it expires.anyone know when the 3 months for $1 promo runs out?...I'm going away for a week for Christmas and would rather re-subscribe when I get back
Guardians of the Galaxy is being added to PC Game Pass on March 10. The Xbox app was also updated today to allow you to install games to a folder of your choice, manage and repair existing installations, and mod more games. You can move currently installed games to a different folder in a similar way that Steam allows.
Hopefully it also means you can launch the game with steam, to utilize steam input for controller support.The Xbox app was also updated today to allow you to install games to a folder of your choice, manage and repair existing installations, and mod more games.

I wonder if all first-party titles are still forced into the standard app folder. Maybe it's baked into them and it will change with future releases.
It seems to be mixed bag, Halo master chief collection and forza 5, both could install to any folder. But forza 4 and some others i could not. Also for the ones that install to any folder, i have complete access to add/delete anything. So this is huge improvement, at least for the games that are updated to allow this.
