Gamepass this month has been great. On top of Mutant Year zero and Strange Brigade, coming down the line for the rest of the month is Ashen, Below, Ori, Hellblade, MKX, Shadow Warrior 2. More games than I will have time to play.

I think my 6 month sub expires next month. Hopefully find another deal around Christmas, for me Game Pass is well worth keeping. I’m also on my 2nd year of EA Access.

I paid AUD$60 for 2 years of game pass.

I feel like Microsoft is hosting a gaming bukkake party, and my face is invited.

I'm playing games I barely had an interest in. I thought it was great value before, but even if I just paid for the one month, you'd be an idiot to be a nay-Sayer... *Cough people who said gamepass was stupid cough*

Not the real one. MS OZ hosted a bunch of stuff that I went to (but I was banned so I couldn't share any of it) if you lived in Sydney/Melbourne and played their Forza/Samsung thing at Flinders St, you got a bunch of gaming crap for their racing games for free, and 10 people won Samsung tvs and Xboner x's.

I rocked up to the racing final late. But the kiosk people were obviously over it. Now I have a wad of passwords for crap that I don't even care about. I assume it's more forza stuff.

Rollins is the one that went to the festival's.

I think they're Aus/Asia only.

And I don't sell anything! I've given away every code, early access and DLC Ive been given to peeps on these forums. Two people have my Xbox logins so they could play SoT beta.

If you have Forza I'll send you a code to try.

I think they're a pack for forza 7 of whatever they're up to. I'll MSG them to you later on. Xoxo have a few spares if the the first doesn't work.

It's a car pack if memory recalls.

Yeah I loaded up on 3 years of Game Pass when it was half off. Considering I bought the Nintendo Uforce, Sega CD and Sega 32X, feel like I’m owed some massive gaming value...and this could be the payback for all my stupid gaming purchases.

Like you I’ve played a bunch of things I would’ve never considered buying and found some gems and new addictions. It’s made me a bigger fan of Indies.

Xbox Game Pass: Just Cause 3, Life Is Strange, Ark: Survival Evolved, And More This January
January 2nd 2019, 8:06 AM PT

Lives are strange (even stranger in video games). Have you ever jumped into a game because you wanted to be someone else? Like a high school student with superpowers that can stop time, a sneaky invisible robot in space, or perhaps you just want to be a farmer riding his tractor all day. Maybe even be the tractor!
Okay, you can’t be the tractor.
But you can be so many other people thanks to January’s Xbox Game Pass titles! We have many great games coming your way, in addition to the over 100 great games already included in your membership, that run the gamut from the punch in the feelings from the Life is Strange series (which we sneakily added over the holidays), to an actual punch in the face from Just Cause 3.
Without further ado, let’s jump into the new games:
Life is Strange Complete Season (Episodes 1-5) (December 20)
Welcome to the portside town of Arcadia Bay. In the seminal award-winning narrative adventure game Life is Strange, you play as Max, a high school senior who discovers that not only can she rewind time, but that all her actions, no matter how big or small, have consequences that will last a lifetime.
Life is Strange: Before the Storm (Episodes 1-3) (December 27)
A three-episode arc taking place years before the first game, Before the Storm puts you in the shoes of Chloe Price, whose rebellious character formed much of original game’s tone. As Chloe struggles with difficult changes in her own life, she will need to support her friend Rachel whose world continues to be rocked and shaken.
Life is Strange 2: Part 1 (January 3)
A new adventure with new characters and the prevailing themes of friendship, family, and mystery the series has come to be known for. Life is Strange 2 will follow the path of two brothers, Sean and Daniel Diaz, as they are forced to flee from their home after an unexplainable and tragic event. Experience this first episode with Xbox Game Pass, plus look out for episodes 2-5 coming to Xbox Game Pass soon.
Ark: Survival Evolved (January 3)
Ever wanted to run around on a mysterious, futuristic island full of giant dinosaurs? Cool, we thought so too. Which is why we’re bringing Ark: Survival Evolved to Xbox Game Pass in January. You’ll have to craft, hunt, and survive against not only the ferocious local wildlife, but the hundreds of other players as well all in the hopes of escaping the shores of this deadly island.
Farming Simulator 17 (January 3)
It’s time to live out your dream as a farmer, but without that whole, getting dirt under your fingernails business. In Farming Simulator 17 you will have access to over 250 vehicles and equipment to help harvest a variety of crops, take care of livestock, and then sell your goods to your local market and continue to expand your farming empire so you can take over the world… ok, maybe that’s too far. But you can ride a tractor!
Absolver (January 7)
Live out a life as martial arts expert focused on a variety of fighting skills, weapon knowledge, and hand-to-hand combat in the competitive, online world of Absolver. Journey across forsaken lands and come face to face with others like you, learning new combat skills, obtaining new weapons, gear, and armor along the way, all in the hopes of being considered worthy enough to be welcomed into the corps of the Absolvers.
Just Cause 3 (January 10)
Cause chaos on a massive scale to take down a Mediterranean island’s evil dictator. Return as Rico Rodriguez in the third entry of this awesome open world action game that lets you skydive, swoop across mountain ranges, hijack vehicles, and experiment in all sorts of unique, hilarious, and explosive ways to get your mission done.
Aftercharge (January 10)
Aftercharge is a bit like a cat and mouse game. But in space. With invisible robots (and no cats). With teamwork at its core, two teams of three players compete against one another – one must sneak across the battlefield to shatter six cylinders; the other is completely invincible, armed to the teeth, and must stop that from happening. Both teams need to work together, either coordinating attacks or creating distractions, all in the hopes of coming out on top.
