Only interested in The Gunk and Firewatch.. which is good, because I still need to finish Halo Infinite, Forza Horizon 5, Scarlet Nexus, Yakuza: LAD and CyberPunk (waiting on the next gen patch).

Still not seeing any big games coming to GamePass for Q1 2022, which worries me

Mk11 for the story, the gunk maybe, rest is a pass I still have the second wave from last month and the first from this month, I played only 2 hours of halo campaign...

So many games..
 
I was hoping Broken Age would show up being a Double Fine not on the GP list. I still need to play the second half on Steam but will start over on Xbox.
I've heard good things about the Deedlit Game. And The Gunk is already Preloaded.

thinks Halo Infinite is a new graphical benchmark
The problem is there's always going to be free games people don't want. At some point you buy the games you want and than look at the free game pass games.

I would have bought Lodoss War ($25) and Gunk ($20) for sure. This isn't counting Halo or all the other December games. A full price month being only $14, I've more than made my money back already several times over for December.

Wow.. this is actually a killer drop for people with young kids. No way I was dropping money on a Paw Patrol game... so this is welcome.


And I've been waiting for MK11. Awesome.

Usually these comes out of nowhere.

Remember outriders/mlb? They will do it like that. Unless they are partnered with xbox.

Honestly makes sense to announce it last minute. Otherwise you'll cannibalize months of potential sales from people who would just wait.

Total War is February I think isn't, though that is PC only. But, yeah they like to surprise with the bigger 3rd party gets.

Who needs reviews when u can try the game without even downloading it.
Very true. But I want the game to do really well. This seems like a much bigger budget game for the dev than they've ever done before. And every other game they've released has been a banger. So just wanting them to succeed again (although I guess they're getting that MS money so maybe already a success for them).

Some game reviewers like Jeff Gerstman seem to have literally said reviewing Gamepass games is pointless also. So who knows if that is a widespread sentiment or just his own opinion.

I'm sure people will talk about it soon if its good.

If its good it will do well.

Man I preordered Deedlit the moment it was on the store lol. Not gonna cancel either lol, I don't mind. I hope it does well just wish I could play as Pirotess. Actually, I went on a spending spree buying a ton of games to show support since I want them anyway after they leave GP, all the Yakuza titles, Dragon Quest XI S and Builders 2, Octopath Traveller and a few more. The GP discount is nice too.

I've also bought multiple games after they leave GP.

I think that gamepass money will help them make another game. Instead of relying actual game sales money.

Some games just fail, due to low sales. and we dont see a sequal for them. Arkane games are example of that.

Damn Yakuza 0/Kiwami/Kiwami 2 going off soon... glad I finished them last year.
Working on Yakuza 4 now - on final chapter. Hoping to finish Yakuza 5/6/7 - but will probably take a break with the Deetlit in Wonder Labyrinth. Need some 2D metroidvania fix...

Also important to note

The following games are leaving the Game Pass library soon, so be sure to jump back in before they go! As always, remember to use your membership discount to save up to 20% on your purchase to keep these games in your library.

  • Pro Evolution Soccer 2021 (Cloud and Console)
  • The Little Acre (Cloud and Console)
  • Yakuza 0 (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • Yakuza Kiwami 1 (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • Yakuza Kiwami 2 (Cloud, Console, and PC)

I've been trying games based on what's leaving

LOL, way to throw Arkane under the bus. Deathloop seems to be their only bomb I'm aware of. Dishonored got a sequel and it sounds like Prey is getting another sequel. And Redfall has the potential to be their biggest IP yet. So no need to worry about Arkane!

What do you consider Q1? Stalker 2 coming to Gamepass in April.

Good mixed list.

Mortal Kombat 11 and The Gunk for me. Heard really good things about Firewatch, Lake looks pretty interesting too, favorable reviews.

The rest of that list is perfect for my little boy.

I now have no reason to not play Firewatch. I also plan to play Lake - I honestly thought it was already on Gamepass.
Is the Transformers game any good?

Yes, the tutorials in MK11 are excellent. Probably the best of any fighting game.
My apologies I meant more storywise. As a fighting game I expect to just pick up what they teach me like any other game. Continuity in story just concerns me since I know MK and Injustice games have a storyline that they try with and make entertaining
