Want to enhance your Xbox Game Pass experience? Come join the official Pure Xbox Game Club!
We can't take any credit on staff for this — the PX Game Club is the work of ralphdibny and the rest of the contributors over at the Pure Xbox forums, who have established a community that meets up every month to play a game on Xbox Game Pass and share their experiences. Games are voted on every month by the contributors involved.
The game for August 2022 is Marvel's Avengers, which is available on console, PC and via Xbox Cloud Gaming. The intent is to play through the main story campaign, but feel free to dip into the multiplayer as well if you want to.
You'll find the forum thread to get involved below (it has over 1,870 entries to date!):
If you're interested in what kind of discussion goes on, here's what a couple of contributors had to say about last month's Pure Xbox Game Club title, Dead Space:
"I tend to have it in my head that anything pre-about 2016 looks like Minecraft, but graphically it holds up well. The plot is pretty generic SF/horror, abandoned spaceship, monsters etc, but the game is fun to play and I’m enjoying shooting the arms and legs off enemies."
"I'm rolling credits on Dead Space now. I think overall I enjoyed it but it took a few levels to move beyond finding it scary. The maps might be confusing to look at but the game is fairly linear and easier to explore than BioShock. I think my final run time was about 12½-13 hours. I had about 270K in the bank at the end and also like 13 power nodes left over."

Really wish they did better job work the online part. Did something like destiny with strikes, raids, etc. The level designs and missions in online avengers leave so much to be desired. The game had so much potential to drop the ball like they did.
Still kinda awestruck this lost to Yoku’s Island Express, which is objectively the better game of the two
(Honestly, I'm not a total maniac!)
And this is why I can't get myself to participate in the PXGC 🤣
Always good to see the Club here. It's a good bunch who often disagree respectfully, it's nice to discuss this hobby we all love. Thanks @ralphdibny as always.
@GuyinPA75 100%. There were a few levels like the opening leading up to the bridge in Avengers that felt wonderful, high octane AAA and Crystal Dynamics at their best. It truly had be wondering what everyone was talking about. Sadly those are few and far between.... it might even be the peak of the game. Will be interesting to see what everyone else thinks. It IS a divisive title but some people do enjoy it. All power to them if they do.
@Dusk_Actual Me too. I ended up buying Yoku's in the PSN sale in penance (it's currently £3.19) as I've already 1000GS it on Xbox. Will replay it soon. Absolutely brilliant game.
@themightyant no worries, cheers 👍👍
So….how is everyone enjoying Avengers (those who are playing it)?
The mere mention of GaaS made something click in my subconscious….and I re-downloaded Destiny 2 and bought the latest expansion and went on an absolute TEAR over the last 24 hours, nearly unlocked a Triumph seal.
These things are like crack to me
@themightyant gonna play it and try to finish I think. Just thinking of that cute little guy bouncing around the screen makes me smile
