Xbox Game Pass - GUIDE TO BEST DEAL IN FIRST POST

Yeah, all three are worth playing — though you'll pretty much universally see Dragonfall praised as the highlight, a really brilliant piece of choose-your-own-cyberpunk-adventure; and Returns as the weakest entry, but still enjoyable.

 

Despite being a trilogy they can all be played discretely, so I'd generally recommend playing Dragonfall first — and if you like it, then give the other two a go.

I second and confirm this. @ScouserInExile do start with Dragonfall. It's the Yakuza Zero of this series if you will. These are fantastic games and I've been in love with this setting ever since the SNES game.

 

Fwiw, Returns might not be as good as the other two but well worth playing especially if you remember SNES Shadowrun. There's a bunch of references to that game in Returns.

Naraka Bladepoint review:

 

You cannot invert the aim stick.

 

The default sensitivity on the aim stick is set to warp speed. Unfortunately the default sensitivity is the only sensitivity.

 

I believe the lack of these settings is also the same with KB&M.

 

I couldn’t really focus on anything else so if there’s a good game underneath I do not know.

 

2/10

I saw some mention on Twitter that you only get access to the settings menu after completing the tutorial. Which is very lol

That’s insane if that’s the case. There’s a settings menu on the title screen but it doesn’t have any of the config options I mentioned.

I'm about three wins* into Naraka and rather enjoying it. It's a pretty shoddy port where all the menus are headache inducing, they've failed to remove some prompts from the mobile version to 'tap the + icon' and bafflingly decided to gate the controller options behind the tutorial, but it basically feels like a mad battle royale mash-up of a load of PS2/PS3 action games and that's about all I need right now.

 

*not sure the first one against very obvious bots counts, but y'know.

Sniper Elite 5 is quite good fun but as I'm playing it co-op with my brother he more often than not ruins most of my sneaky, perfectly lined up shots by rapid firing at enemies before going full Leeroy Jenkins.

Well to answer my own question, I just went for it with the CD Keys link in my post above and apart from being quite boring to copy & paste all the codes, it went like a dream - another 3 years of GPU for about £67 - madness!

Nice. I’m just about to do this and it works out even cheaper than the cards I asked about the other week, so thanks for that!

That time has come where my Game Pass sub has expired. I'm looking at XLG keys and Eneba has some 3 month keys for £4.75 - is there any reason not to use them? If not, I also see CD Keys has them for £5.49: https://www.cdkeys.com/xbox-live/memberships/3-month-xbox-live-gold-membership-card-xbox-one-360 - I assume that one would be okay?

Can you use these to extend an existing membership?

No. You can, but the conversion rate is terrible. Wait until your sub runs out before applying gold codes, only then will it convert 1:1.

It's even crazier to think that I paid about £130 when I did it 3 years ago, so I've renewed for nearly half the price. It's a ridiculous bargain even if I only played and completed one full-price game a year.

Sorry, rather than reversing watch each stick does, I need full flight control on left stick and then throttle/secondary flight control on right. Like a flight sim would.

 

I just can't untrain myself out of that. Glad I only streamed it instead of downloading.

See above - it is mostly scammers on EBay but it is using an exploit rather than gold conversion - it mentions "stacking introductory offer" in the article.

Yeah there is. Hold your pad upside down 

 

On a serious not, I don't think so

Urm you pick the swap sticks option in the settings. I played the entire game with control on left stick and inverted because spaceships need inverted controls.

The EA play integration is a war crime on game pass. On PC I was trying to download the Grid legends trial, so I opened Origin, then it said to close Origin and retry, then absolutely nothing happened. Tried to do it on XBOX but you literally cannot find it anywhere.

 

Trash.

my current GPU expires on the 9th.

 

So I've got two 12 month XBLG codes £75

 

I wait.

 

It expires.

 

I renew.

 

I upgrade to 24 months of GPU for £11, yeah?

 

Per the first post. That's still a thing?
