    "raucous rhythm combat"?
    I think I'll be giving Hi-fi Rush a miss!
    Tatwamasi's avatar
    Take a look at the reactions of people who are playing it, it's being very well received. I wasn't interested either but I've decided to give it a go now.
  5. cool-capybara's avatar
    Can you play GoldenEye on cloud via PC? As it only specifies console and cloud versions.
    slippers1977's avatar
    Pretty sure anything on cloud can be played on a pc via the cloud gaming app. I was able to play flight sim on a chromebook via the browser so pc should be the same.

    Hot Wheels, Nice

    Honestly this is the month of Nostalgia for me , over the moon with Goldeneye and AOE2, grew up with those games (edited)

    when a game is pulled do you lose it or does it just mean new people can't DL it ?
    b3nwhy's avatar
    When the game leaves Xbox Gamepass, if you've installed it - it remains on your console, but you no longer have the ability to play it... Unless you've purchased it.
  10. Tjfish's avatar
    These games are why I pay for game pass
    Glasshalfsmashed58's avatar
    Yes. That's how transactions work. Money for goods or services.
  11. Kralz8's avatar
    Definitely recommend checking out Donut County before it leaves. It's a really quick game and a quick 1000 GS; you can easily get one achievement every day too for the daily Microsoft Rewards +50 points per achievement quest. Plus it's genuinely a great game that's funny and charming, and has a great soundtrack too. (edited)
    Bedrocks's avatar
    Agreed nice little time waster, no challenge at all but sometimes you just need to switch off and enjoy a short fun game
  12. DirtyQwerty's avatar
    I've loved the three hours I've put into Hi-Fi Rush, definitely recommend giving it a go if you're into action/ rhythm games. (edited)
  13. TheAmazingNoob's avatar
    Now it makes sense why Hot Wheels was announced and then pulled from joining Game Pass last month, they wanted to get the GOTY edition
  14. Propaganda_Panda_'s avatar
    Hi-Fi Rush shadow dropped & is surprisingly getting rave reviews. Heat
    StevieW0nder's avatar
    Can only find one review from a place called xboxera

    Nice! Hot Wheels!

    My mate plays AoE, I’ve seen him play and don’t see the interest but might try it..

    Darkest Dungeon is Anxiety inducing... Really tense for a turn based strategy.
  21. Red_Shift's avatar
    I've been pretty disappointed with Gamepass of late... I've let my Ultimate Subscription lapse last last couple of months after having Xbox Live in some shape or form since 2002 ?

    Only kept it for Flight simulator but managed to grab that miss price a few weeks ago when it was 11 quid...
    deleted2508999's avatar
    me too Redshift, I just think its utterly pants. The vast majority of "free games" released are old pap and gamepass doesn't have anywhere near enough decent releases. I'd usually do the VPN xbox live thing then £1 to upgrade, but its honestly not worth the effort nowadays IMHO.
  22. Nezben's avatar
    Theres only one game i see here. And its a 25 odd year old N64 game!
  23. 9pth9h8fvb's avatar
    So disappointed in goldeneye. Was expecting it to play at 4K 60 on the series S. it can’t even do that on the Series X? Come on! I’ve just loaded up retroarch, tweaked a few settings and get 4K 60fps on the series S. how could they not get that on this release? And why lie and put an optimised for S/X badge on it. It’s not been optimised at all for the next gen consoles.
    Illusionary's avatar
    Licensing issues.

    Your "tweaked a few settings" will include patching the ROM; this release is running on the original ROM under the hood, which is as much as was possible to agree between the various rights holders.

  30. JoeUk123's avatar
    Hot wheels isn't showing on the app but the others are?
  31. kaviraj's avatar
    Is that the original goldeye N64 game? I know Microsoft bought RARE and the game was made by them.
    COLDmate's avatar
    Yeah i think its remastered but believe no online multiplayer unfortunately for xbox
  32. joanddan7's avatar
    Hot wheels is a cracking game. I paid £13 for complete version recently. Well worth it and it’s a throwback to when games were just fun.
  33. Turnip's avatar
    Wheels nice hot hot!

    Wasn't hot wheels free before?
    amillstone's avatar
    It was a PS Plus Essential game recently, which is what you might be thinking of
  37. MrHappyGilmore's avatar
    How the wheels hot turn
  38. GameOverRob's avatar
    Sucks that GoldenEye 007 is local only multiplayer on the xbox, however I kind of have a feeling that this game has been released two generations too late and is going to look and play pretty poorly as it is not a proper remaster which is what the game needed... given that it was released over 25 years ago on 23 August 1997. I hope it doesn't sour the good memories of playing the game on N64.

    Does anyone know what time it goes live tomorrow for download and playing?

    I'd wish they would include JoJo's bizarre adventure all star battle R in the game pass.
