For real life?!

I haven't played it but the reviews are not good.

Looks like Dead Island 2 was added. Was this a stealth drop? I bought it last month, but haven’t played it yet. So, oh well

Thank you for your service

I noticed that as well. The originals were on sale for $3 and I was thinking of a bit of a nostalgia play but I guess I'll just dive into the second game! Pretty wild couple of months for Game Pass.

Oh sweet. I wanted to try that, especially for the co-op.

Wasn't sure where to post this, but here is the Xbox Partners Preview from Yesterday, 3/6/24:

My biggest takeaway was.....S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Trilogy on Xbox.

I can't believe Frostpunk 2 is launching on gamepass. I can't wait.

I was excited to see Open Roads, until I realized that Open Roads is not Broken Roads.

Otherwise, D4 is obviously the big one, but I'm also interested in The Quarry, which looks like a campy good time.

It never stops! P3:R and Tales are taking up all my time already.

I'm already playing D4 with a controller; it'll be nice to have the option to put it on the Xbox without having to catch a sale and drop another $40 or so.

I forgot D4 was coming. Also Terra Invicta? It's like they are reading my steam wishlist of games that I won't consider until they go 1.0.

Don't forget Lightyear Frontier. It is *awesome*. Played it during Next Fest.

It's gotta be one of the most solid early access games I've ever played, and I normally have zero tolerance for early access jank.

This looks like a pretty light update, but I've heard really good things about Harold Halibut. It looks beautiful:

My son will appreciate Lego 2K Drive

Wait, is that Graham narrating that Harold Halibut trailer? I know I recognize that voice.

The voice acting is bad. How the hell did they manage to make the voice acting bad on Bluey? It sounds like the original voice actors, but every line seems to be delivered in complete isolation from any of the others, or any context whatsoever. And there's always just a little bit too long of a pause between the characters speaking. Was this one of those situations where a computer programmer just gave the voice actors a bunch of alphabetized voice lines with no direction? This is some serious early CD-ROM sh*t.

Oh and the animation is rough too.

If it wasn't for that, I'd have had a nice enough time wandering around the Heeler house, even if the gameplay is pretty basic.
