Recently finished off untitled Goose Game without doing the speed runs (i have no intrest in do it) and with me finally getting to the game after all theses years i dont get the hype it receives. It was just another indie to me...

@sib Yes, I’ve played both RE2 and RE7.

RE3 is pretty similar to RE2 but a little bit more action oriented I would say. RE3 is also a bit shorter than RE2, but that’s not a negative thing in my book, especially since there’s more action.
RE7 has too much stealth gameplay for me, and I only played it a couple of hours and didn't bother to finish it.

I would rank them RE2>RE3>RE7.

@JoakimZ
Cool - thanks for the feedback!
I'll probably pick it up when it's next on sale. I enjoyed both RE2 and RE7 so, from what you've said, I'm pretty sure I'll like RE3 as well.

Btw, I'm also a fan of shorter games..!

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood. Loved that end battle, enjoyed the feel of the game overall; it served as a good prequel to The New Order.

Some pretty ropey textures in there, but just love that Nazi shootin gameplay!

Just finished The Turing Test before it leaves Game Pass in a few days; another that I likely would never have played if it hadn't been on there. Enjoyable FPS puzzle game which reminded me of Portal a little bit.

Finished Gears 5 Hivebusters DLC campaign today. The DLC was absolutely phenomenal, I genuinely would love to see more games in this series with these characters. I liked them way more than the new ones from recent Gears games, they were like a mix of the original Gears of War characters and the new ones, i.e. a mix of badassery and "soft-heartedness". Kinda hard to explain but regardless I loved their personalities, especially Lahni's. Not to mention the other characters like Hana who's basically Baird but in my opinion more likeable and cooler (also she's Cole Train's daughter). Also, the set pieces in this game were great, so much so that it's too bad they weren't included in a full release in this series because they were seriously cool. All in all, if you haven't played this DLC then you really have to! It's just so good.

I think it's super awesome by Microsoft to release story DLC with Game Pass Ultimate. Most people don't really buy DLC that's rather short (3-4 hours to be specific) so including it with GPU is a great way for more people to experience this campaign and these characters and hopefully this will send a signal to the developers to make more games with these characters because they're amazing.

I also finished Peggle 2 and it was great fun as well. I can never get tired of games like this. Hopefully they'll make a sequel someday!

Just finished Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair and in all honesty, it's a well-crafted 2D platformer but it can be too frustrating to play sometimes due to how difficult it is. There are also some instances where you get hit or die in a weird way because e.g. the game is bugged. But yeah, it was overall a fun game but I probably wouldn't recommend it to anyone since it's such a hard game. The final level especially will test your patience since it's reliant on you having collected bees to protect you from getting hit. You get one bee for every level completed and there are 48 ones in total, so you'll be playing through 40+ levels just to have the best possible chance in the final level. So yeah not only do you need to be patient, you also need to complete as many levels as possible. Otherwise you'll be at a disadvantage in the last level.

I mean this concept sounds cool on paper but it really can be a deal-breaker for some people. I'm just glad that I didn't buy this game, it's definitely not worth spending money on because it can be outright annoying to play a lot of the times. And that's not what I'm looking for in the games that I buy.

Beat Gears 5 today. Mixed feelings on it really. Graphics are great, best I’ve seen so far on the Series X and it’s smooth as butter. Usual Gears things like shooting felt satisfying.

I don’t think adding small open parts helps the game at all, felt it completely ruined the pace of what I expect from a Gears game, sailing from place to place on the Skiv looked nice but the world was empty with nothing going on. Upgrading Jack was ok I guess but wouldn’t be bothered if he wasn’t a core part of the game at all. Changing the chainsaw to RB is a crime, countless times as close quarters it would start reloading instead of revving the chainsaw, made it less enjoyable than it should of felt.

Just some thoughts on the single player game. Never been interested in the multiplayer.

@Fenbops Did you do any of the side missions? They were pretty substantial and added more lore, battles as well as gave you more components to use to upgrade Jack. I personally thought the open world had plenty to offer, but not too much to distract you from your main objective.

Will you be playing the Hivebusters DLC campaign? I'm interested in hearing your thoughts about it compared to Gears 5 main campaign since they are pretty much polar opposite with the DLC being a pure linear experience rather than mixing in open world elements.

@LtSarge yeah I did the side missions, the combat is good, just felt the open world ruined the pace. There also one part of the story where you make a choice I especially did not like lol.

Just started Hivebusters. Only up to chapter 2 but seems good. Maybe I’ll enjoy it more!

I just finished Call of the Sea on Xbox One and thought it was a great game! The story was very enjoyable and the world was really immersive. I can't think of many games where I was completely engrossed in the puzzle-solving. However, while the majority of the puzzles were good, I found a fair amount that weren't too clear on what you had to do. These were among the more extensive puzzles and the issue I had was that you could think of numerous solutions to the puzzles but there's only one solution that the developers had in mind. I could spend up to an hour just trying to figure it out but ultimately I'd give up and just look up a guide. Then I would find the solution to be something that I'd never ever think of because there weren't enough hints to push you towards that kind of thinking. I think the developers could've done a better job at giving you a clearer direction. Don't make the puzzles too obvious, but don't make them too unclear. A lot of the times I genuinely thought that I had a clear understanding of the puzzles after having gathered all the clues, only to find out that I had literally no idea what to do because I couldn't interpret the right solution.

Other than that my experience was highly enjoyable and I didn't think these puzzles ruined it one bit, but it did make the overall experience not as fulfilling as it could've been. So it's something to keep in mind if you're interested in this game. I highly recommend it if you have the patience for some of the puzzles. Not to mention that it's a fairly short game, clocking in at about 5-6 hours, so there aren't too many of these extensive puzzles. It felt like the perfect length for this kind of game.

As a side note, this is a fairly good game for achievement hunting. I got 800 G from one playthrough and then cleaning up some stuff that I had missed in two chapters, which took about 10 minutes.

Just finished Unravel on Xbox One. Excellent game! It resonated a lot with me since it takes place in Sweden with a lot of environments that I'm vividly familiar with. It's like I was playing a game about my real life, lol. Anyway, this was a great 2D platformer with fun puzzle-solving, although some of the puzzles could get repetitive or frustrating due to e.g. not being able to distinguish between background and foreground. Sometimes it was just too hard to tell if you could interact with certain objects or not and that would lead to numerous deaths. But other than that I really enjoyed my time with this game and I'm glad that I finally got to play it after hesitating so many times on buying it whenever it's gone on sale. I'm so glad that it's on Game Pass Ultimate! I might even check out Unravel 2 soon.

I just 100% finished the Gardens Between last night. It's a great puzzle game, nice art style and soundtrack for it. Not a long game but certainly very enjoyable.

I'm now officially a member of the 10K gamerscore!! Bust out the confetti!

Just finished Battlefield 1's campaign. It was honestly pretty good, although the first war stories were definitely the most interesting while the latter felt rather shoe-horned in. The objectives because incredibly repetitive and it genuinely felt like they just took the multiplayer maps and added some story objectives to them. For example, the goal in certain missions was to "capture the flag" basically, which I'm pretty sure is not a thing in real life war, lol. But yeah, the stories were at least interesting with great acting. The gameplay was fun whenever you were in a vehicle, such as a tank or airplane, but on foot it was rather dull, especially when considering that this game tried to implement a stealth aspect to it but it honestly doesn't work that well. I'd rather just go guns blazing in this game and have the developers craft the missions with that in mind so that it works out better.

All in all, another game I'm glad that I played on Game Pass instead of spending €10-20 on just to experience the story mode, which wasn't anything to write home about.

@Krzzystuff Congrats mate! It's funny, because I just got the achievement for completing the Battlefield 1 campaign and it helped me reach exactly 80 000 G, lol. What a coincidence!

Just finished Far Cry Evolution on 360. I've had the Far Cry Instincts Predator games in my backlog for years now and after finishing Instincts I think a year ago, I just became too unmotivated to play the second game. Instincts was just too long, too difficult and not fun at all. However, as I was recently looking through a list of the best Far Cry games, I saw Evolution being near the top and it piqued my interest. I found out that this game is much shorter than Instincts (which was 12 hours long and Evolution was roughly half of that), it's more fun since you have your powers right from the start, checkpoints are way more frequent and so on. And that was indeed the case and it made for a much better experience than Instincts. However, it still wasn't all that great overall since the story felt so pointless, lol. Not to mention how the game ended, which was so abrupt and not gratifying at all.

Well I'm at least done with the early Far Cry games now. I've read that Far Cry 2 and onward are much better games than these so I'm looking forward to giving it a go hopefully soon!

@LtSarge I generally agree with what you said about Battlefield 1's campaign. I bought Battlefield 1 on release full price, but the purchase was primarily for the multiplayer with friends. That said, though the BF1 was a decent and refreshing experience (especially considering Battlefield has horrible campaigns, I like the war story vignette direction they took here) it certainly wasn't the main reason to buy the game.

I'd recommend it to anybody who likes historical fiction that has an active gamepass subscription.

Just finished A Way Out last night in co-op with @kefka2589 and it's a great story. Great twist at the end so don't spoil it by looking it up if you're interested in it. We have to go back and try and get the achievements unlocked as we only managed to get 2 and finished the whole game.

@Reverandjames
Just looking at each of your posts, it's like buyers remorse, and you have to actually produce hyperbolic reasons to not enjoy your purchase, to the point of not even believing this is next gen.

Quick resume not working at all, crashes, multiple games not starting, save games being lost, not interested in anything on Gamepass or 1st party.

At this stage, you should be going for the refund or selling it outright, but you continue with the negativity...

You've stated above that you don't enjoy 1st party games. Fair enough, they're not for you. What do you like? What games have you completed recently?

It's not anything Xbox vs Sony, we've covered that, it's yourself being so negative is such a hyperbolic way, that it just looks pathetic.

It honestly makes one question if you're this gloom-ridden outside of the forums.
