@LtSarge that room was so weird in that it has no gameplay purpose and is story only. Which I think is the only thing in the game like that. I guess later in the game you do fight something similar to what's in that room in the neighborhood level mini boss fights but still weird anyway!!

@LtSarge Yeah, it was pretty horrifying. Didn’t want to spoil people on the specifics but definitely freaky!

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

Black Lives Matter. Enough is enough.

I'm really struggling to get motivated with Psychonauts due to the lack of achievements. I'm already lagging behind this month (currently sitting bottom of the top 10) because ive been playing Hollow Knight and that's quite tight with the achievements considering how tough it is.

@ralphdibny @nessisonett Yeah I was honestly quite shocked when I discovered it. Sure you learn the backstory of each character in their levels by breaking open the safes but they truly went all out on the female agent's level.

@Mr-Fuggles777 Hopefully you decide to give it a try eventually! It's absolutely worth giving it a go even if it doesn't have achievements. It's one of the most fun 3D platformers I've played in recent memory.

@LtSarge I will do, its just killing me being so far down on the achievement leader board this month lol. I haven't got much more to go until I hit 100k so slacking off isn't great.

It doesn't help that a lot of the games I play with my Clan don't have many achievements or I've already gotten them

@Mr-Fuggles777 I mean, why rush it? I'm also very close to reaching 100k but I'm taking my time getting there by focusing on playing games that I enjoy, even if they don't have achievements. It seems to me that you're enjoying the games you're playing as well, so don't beat yourself up about it. You will get to 100k in no time!

@Mr-Fuggles777 Interesting that there’s no achievements on Xbox, there are on Steam!

@nessisonett I don't know why but im much more likely to play through a game if there are achievements or trophies to work towards. Its probably why a big chunk of my Switch library has remained unfinished.

I think I'm hooked on the little dopamine hit when an achievement notification pops up lol.

@LtSarge I'm 5k away, but have only earned 30k since coming back to Xbox in Feb so I'm not going mad for them this time around.
I just like to hit the top 3 of the leader board each month - it gives me something to grind towards.

Hi @ralphdibny just been chatting to @LtSarge about this and would love to join the club!

One caveat: probably can't start till September if that's OK, unless something changes! (Unusually busy and juggling a few too many games + life for the next month) It's normally not this mental and a shame as I really want to play and discuss both Psychonauts (missed it first time around) and replay A Plague's Tale (brilliant game!). But I'll see what I can do, stranger things have happened

I actually replayed Dishonored 1 + DLC + 2 in May, but didn't know this was here. Absolutely brilliant series that imho gets better with each replay as you master the levels, mechanics and stop worrying about high/low chaos to just have fun. I've always used the 2 Story DLC from the first game as an example of how to do story DLC right. i.e. not make it feel like it was cut or separate but make it cleverly integrate with the story and add another layer to the plot and mechanics. It's simply brilliant! (and you get to play as Michael Madsen)

Also played ReCore before... the same feeling as everybody else here it started great but very quickly become repetitive. But I am one of that 3% of players that completed it! I think that's more a badge of stubbornness than anything else, I probably should have stopped much earlier.

Have also previously played and finished most of the list - Observation, Battletoads, Tell Me Why, Hellblade, Ryse, Ori (one of my favourite games), Titanfall 2, Alan Wake, Dishonored & ReCore. It's a very very solid list. Kudos!

Yet to get around to Night in the Woods, Resident Evil VII & Psychonauts... though they're all on the backlog, this might make me finally promote them!

Add me to any notifications and I'll jump in asap.

@themightyant @The_New_Butler

Welcome brethren to the Pure Xbox Game Cult Club.

Just kidding, but seriously, welcome! I'll be happy to add you both to the tag lists!

Interesting to read your thoughts there mightyant on the previous GC games! But yeah, just jump in and out as an when you can. Plague Tale is looking likely for August, not sure if I'll join in on that one myself anyway because I have quite a bit on in August.

ralphdibny

@The_New_Butler haha not sure if collective sounds much better than cult anyway!

I've just checked the votes to make sure, I didn't want you delaying your plague tale playthrough on the basis of a vague comment from me, but the votes currently stand at:

A Plague Tale: Innocence - 3 (sarge, krzystf, dmc0)
Perfect Dark - (
Mirror's Edge - 2 (sarge, dmc0)

I might abstain from voting this month because people seem quite keen on A Plague Tale and I don't want to derail it. I'm not overly fussed because it doesn't really look like my kind of thing but I'll give it a go if I get time.

But yeah, barring any last minute votes which there aren't normally, plague tale should be a goer for August!

@The_New_Butler throw your vote in... electing a nation's leader is one thing...but for the game pass game of the month really every vote counts...we have like 5 of them.

I found a link to this club in the latest Psychonauts 2 post on the site! I started up Psychonauts last night to get my self ready for the sequel and so far I am really enjoying it. It is strange that I have not played it up until now as I love anything that Double Fine spit out!

@ZeD The only other Double Fine game I've played prior to Psychonauts was Costume Quest 2 and I didn't even know they made that game! I own titles like Grim Fandango but those point-and-click titles don't appeal to me due to their obscurity in puzzle-solving, lol.

I looked up what other games Double Fine has made and apparently they made Stacking and The Cave, both of which are in my backlog. I'll have to give them a try soon!

@ZeD @LtSarge The Cave was fun for what it was. Worth a play, typical Tim Schafer humour. But if memory serves it outstayed it's welcome a little, requiring about 5 or 6 different, but similar, playthroughs (it's quite short) to get the full story + achievements. It's not necessary though, you've seen enough by then and get the picture.

ralphdibny

@ZeD heya, Wana be added to the tag list for future month or are you just dropping by for Psychonauts? Either is fine!

ralphdibny

LtSarge

@themightyant Oh I didn't know that. Well I think I'll experience it once or maybe twice just to see how different the second playthrough is. Thanks for the heads-up!
