    Hmmm, I responded to someone else posting that article in All Sales thread. It probably would have been better in here. :p

    Loved the Arkham games, but I'm not sure I can handle going back to the old mechanics. That's a situation where I'd use CheatEngine on PC.

    Never finished Alien: Isolation (PC). I think that's a game I'd like to play as a backseat driver. :V Still curious about the 10-bit/30bpp setting.

    Headlander seems neat.

    I wonder if XGP Minecraft includes some of the DLCs or not. If not then a shopping trip at CDKeys may be in order, they have a lot of the MineCraft DLC packs for $2 or less (normal price at $20).

    Quick heads up for those working the MS Rewards programs, the current reward discounted offer is Xbox Game Pass. The 3 months redemption is discounted 25%, so 13500 points instead of the 18000.

    hm.

    -------------

    How do video streaming services communicate this?

    As to services giving notice about items about to be removed from the service, they typically don't give any notice (Netflix, Prime) . The only closest I've seen to this is from the cable On-Demand systems included with your channel subscriptions. They sometimes but not always, will have a "Valid until" or "Expiration" date on videos. Even then nearly all the items are 'renewed' once that time hits, so the information becomes meaningless. Why bother checking the expiration date when it's always renewed, and why would HBO/Showtime/Starz/Cinemax ever expire their own exclusive content from On-Demand?

    So there's no solid means I've seen to communicate this. I mostly catch the "What's New" and "What's Leaving" info posted on TA/Twitter/Reddit or other web sites about GamePass and Netflix.

    They've dedicated an entire bloody tab on the dashboard. Can they not just have a tile beside the "Recently Added" for "Leaving Soon".

    Edit:

    Ok, so they've got three immediate rows of tiles:

    1. Row 1: gigantic wide-aspect ratio tile for one game.
    2. Row 2: four side-by-side tiles
    3. Row 3: two text tiles "Show All" and Search. They don't even take up the entire width, so they could actually add more.
    Surely they could add more to the third row.
    • Ditch the "Recently Added" & "Most Popular" tiles in row 2. Dedicate Row 2 to four games - the publishers can pay whatever ad monies for being featured there.
    • add more text tiles in row 3. e.g. Show All, Featured, Most Popular, Recently Added, Leaving Soon,
    Everything below that is a waste of page up/down IMO, but w/e. The WinStore mimicry needs to be nuked from orbit.

    They don't. I had a series taken down from Prime while I was mid-way through it.
