I actually started Ninja Gaiden Black a few days ago, but dropped it to play Devil May Cry 3 instead.

yay Road 96, was hoping that'd come to Game Pass

Escape Academy also looks interesting, though that one was announced a while ago

looking forward to As Dusk Falls, though I'm not entirely sold on the art style; I'd be more enthusiastic about it if it had fully animated characters, or at least more animated characters. still, it's getting good reviews and I'm a fan of the narrative genre, so I'll definitely play it.

Also, Raji is getting upgraded to the Enhanced Edition... ten days before it leaves Game Pass. Good thing it's fairly short, at least

Tinykin confirmed for Game Pass. Enjoyed the demo a lot, very charming 3D platformer with a dash of Pikmin.

What's up with all these shitty months lately. I still have 2.5 months of game pass to go as a demo service, but still...

Hopefully the other half of this month is better.

Looking like an alright half a month for me.

Cooking Sim - heard of it never played, not really for me.
Wildlands - Loved it, definitely a game to play if you havent (one of the best worlds made).
✅ Two Point - been looking forward to this.
✅ Turbo Golf Racing - Saw some streamers play, looks like a lot of fun.
✅Expeditions Rome - Been wanting to play this for a while.
✅Offworld - heard of this, know it has a loyal fanbase.
Shenzhen - Never head of this, steam page makes it seem like not my sort of game.

A thought: once MS get's the 1st party ball rolling, they will have weaker 3rd party offerings, so far they had quite good 3rd party offering, but it's due to the lak of 1st party games and for whatever reason the last months have been pretty week. Lol, a bunch of months ago people expected Tiny Tina, Nier Replicant, Tales of Arise etc.

Also, Im quite curious if devs/pubs signing up for the PS Plus tiers locks them out of a game pass deal, Im certain Sony at least is attempting that and that will also hurt PC game pass users.

Told y'all.

In fact, MS says that Microsoft's ability to continue expanding Game Pass has been hampered by Sony's desire to inhibit such growth. Sony pays for "blocking rights" to prevent developers from adding content to Game Pass and other competing subscription services (then there is a bunch of redacted content).

yeah, not surprising. A while back the Sony/Capcom co-marketing deal for RE Village leaked and it had clauses prohibiting Capcom from putting the game on any competing subscription services for at least a year after launch (might have been 18 months, I forget).

Dang, bunch of games leaving at the end of the month that I never got around to playing, including the Myst remake and Hades (I really thought MS would pay to renew that one for another year). oh well, additions at the end of the month are pretty great

Just announced as a day 1 Game Pass title, looks very promising for fans of cinematic platformers


also lol did I make a mistake by sleeping on Hades, may not finish it before it leaves Game Pass but at least I'm pretty sure I can copy my save and transfer it to Steam later

Should be some new indie Game Pass announcements from this next week:


And probably a few Japanese announcements from the TGS event the next day (last year, we got shadowdrops of Scarlet Nexus, Mighty Goose, and AI: The Somnium Files)

Preload is available for

Resubscribe for A Plague Tale and Scorn, perfect game pass games.

BTW, for those that have 0x80073d0d error, where installing to different drive than C: ends up in install error after downloading the game, do not follow those google searches result tutorials like "9 Ways to Fix Microsoft Store Error Code 0x80073D0D on Windows 11" etc.

Just do this:
  • Close Xbox app
  • Open regedit, and go to Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Appx\PackageVolumes\
  • Which has a list of subkeys (ie. 1, 8, 9 etc.) specifying Volumes where the system has created a WindowsApps folder. If you want to install on K:\ (example), delete the subkey that contains the entry for K:\ and reboot your computer.
  • Delete the problematic drive game pass install folder
  • Try installing the game to the drive again,
Works for me.

I wonder if it would have helped me in the opposite situation (could launch games on d but not c).
Then again, your error code is not the same I had if memory serves.

What's your error code? You can always export the registry key before deleting it if you decide to try the above method and import it back if it doesn't fix anything.

Pretty sure it was 0x80070005.
