I can only imagine that subscription services would just add to the backlog. It's only good to have a subscription when there's a game that you really want or the backlog is bare.

Which Gamepass titles have you missed out on?

I got my GS of 54,000 something confused with the TA metric. It would take me about 4 to 5 years to earn an additional 50 thousand GS assuming there's enough games that interest me.

@cardcrusher29 quite a few. I'm intrigued by Diablo 4, Botany Garden, Starfield (strangely I let my sub lapse when starfield released) and a few leftfield games. I absolutely blitzed gamepass for the 15 months I had it. I must have played 120+ games.

I'm a bit of a gaming addict truth be told. Not that it effects my ability to function like an MMO addict, but I will batter a ton of games in my limited spare time, after work and on my days off. Gamepass is perfect for me as long as I take breaks from it.

I'm actually on a trip away in a lively spa hotel ATM and going to watch Sarah Millican with the wife later so haven't touched a game since Thursday afternoon. But rest assured my gamerscore will be heading northward from Sunday rofl 🤣

Diablo IV and Starfield will keep you pretty busy in case you like them. You're just in time when Diablo IV dropped weeks ago and Starfield has received a 60fps update if you're on the XSX

I've also been hearing about how Redfall is now more enjoyable with the updates and you can now play offline.

The MRS might not be happy if you get knee deep with the Diablo IV season/pass. I could imagine spring/summer garden and home DIY projects getting neglected

@cardcrusher29 rofl 🤣 I need some motivation to put a dartboard up and sort my garage out. So I may give D4 a miss (for now).

Went a bit mad since Im off work until Thursday and finished a bunch of games. Mechanika, super woden gp and plastic duck simulator. I'm probably going to tidy up my library, box off ultimate 2d racing (underrated gem), and delete the games I'm not enjoying and finally jump back on Sonic Frontiers or Sleeping Dogs.

Great game with a tidy 1000g is a game called islanders. Its cheap but entertaining. I won't spoil it, it's an abstract management builder.

You get more intune as you play. On your seventh or eighth run it all clicks and you will go on a goldilocks stretch knocking off all the achievements. Well worth it!

Achievement hunters who have a Gamepass sub and some free time could tackle either "High On Life" and "Bramble" for the next five days. Both are short and could be done in 5 hours each if you focus on the main campaign. A warning about "Bramble". It's more gruesome and explicit than the last "Saw" movie. I thought it was a child's game in the first 5 min of playing.

@cardcrusher29 High on life is a love it or hate it kind of game. I loved it! Some of the latter achievements are a tad laborious, but yes I agree - well worth a go.

I agree. The humor is indeed polarizing. I'm not familiar with the creator's tv shows but I enjoyed the dialogue. "High On Life" comes off as natural compared to the humor or banter that comes from some games. About 5 to 7 achievements require time commitment or advance guide lookup. By my estimate about 20 out of the 32 base game cheevos should come naturally with a normal playthrough.
