    So for those who picked up the earlier version of Playful Studios' Super Lucky's Tale released in 2017, the 2 DLCs have been temporarily relisted as free on the store. So pick them up if you want.

    It's nice to see developers acting in ways to be consumer friendly when they don't need to.

    The current revised edition of the game is listed on Game Pass as New Super Luck's Tale. If you purchase the new revision you get the original version with the DLC packs.

    Don't Starve is a pretty fun game, but its open world nature struggles to hold my interest long term.

    It's the strategy (tower defense, limited resources, character development and equipment) combined with randomness (level layout, what characters you'll find to fill out your team, loot drops) that keeps me going in Dungeon of the Endless. Also since each level of the dungeon is self contained it's still a directed experience instead of an open experience (like Don't Starve).

    Regards,
    SB

    Yeah, I tried it for the Game Pass Quest too. Janky camera movement is apt. Would have been so much better with a full 3d camera. They need to take some pointers from New Super Lucky's Tale & fix it. As for the voice-acting, it was expected considering it's the same bunch that did Banjo Kazooie, but that doesn't forgive it. Without real voice actors there's not much to do to fix it except maybe turn them off?

    Yeah, I'd much prefer if it didn't have any at all.

    Wonder if it's 'family pass'? Having it work across live profiles would give parity with video streaming services.

    Thinking about getting a 2nd Xbox and just having Gamepass work faff free across both would be good move. As people upgrade to next gen it potentially keeps the One's in service elsewhere in the household.

    I think that's a user mash-up. The line of "18 month console upgrade option" is what I'm keying in on. It's there for the One S and One X All-Access options.

    Unless there's a 3rd console that users could upgrade to that's above and beyond the Xbox Series X... :runaway:

    I'm just carrying on what was already out there -- https://wccftech.com/xbox-edinburgh-count-codenames-xbox-os/

    So a bit back onto immediate topic. I do wonder what the strong news will be, that Phil hinted at days or weeks ago. So drip information releases suck, even when we get these controlled leaks.

    Seems a very bad deal
    Sure if you’ve only got $25 or $35 in the bank it’s you only option
    But it’s $600 or $900
    Hmmm so If we go off this they are asking an extra $300 for the SX, so $600 to buy upfront

    Not quite, unless the person wouldn't subscribe to Game Pass Ultimate. I think that's your point, right?

    Game Pass Ultimate is $360 for 2 years.
    Series S is then $240 more [24 * $25 = $600 Total]
    Series X is then $480 more [24 * $35 = $840 Total]

    If you look at it the other way, you get Game Pass Ultimate for a slight discount if you were buying the hardware anyways.
    Series S + Game Pass Ultimate = $300 more than console price, savings of $60
    Series X + Game Pass Ultimate = $340 more than console price, savings of $20

    AzBat has an updated list he posted elsewhere which goes over the implied discounts.

    If true these are pretty tempting deals for COVID-19 strapped gamers that only have $35.

    That table really makes it look like XSX will be $600 at launch, doesn’t it? As well it could be, with a $300 XSS blunting any price complaints.
