Metro Exodus is so bipolar it is blowing my mind. I run the game but some times it will come in a windows which goes into my other monitor. Minimizing etc doesn't fix it. Close it run it again might do it again or it might be full screen. Getting in no matter what resolution i have it shows 720 or whatever. I change the resolution and then change it back to 1440 now it looks fine. In window form. Minimize and coming back will fix this. Some times though. Some times not so much. Must launch and try again.

If i manage to get into the game it either runs perfectly. Looks good. RTX is on ultra. Smooth fps. Fantastic i can play. Or it might have heavy fps drops. So i need to restart my pc and then start the procedure all over again. Insanity. The game it self seems pretty good but damn the hassle is making it not worth playing.

Forgive me if already talked about.

Is there any word on Gamepass PC Family sharing or anything like that? My husband and I would love 1 sub for the both of us!

I didn't realise Football Manager had achievements on the Game Pass version!

Might see if I can import my Steam version save.

Turns out that a bunch of people on the internet were right all along, Sunset Overdrive is indeed great! Seemed so unappealing to me in the vids back then when it came out on xbox. Love that with gamepass I can just try a bunch of games like this that I wouldn’t otherwise have played.
It is indeed a brilliant game, everybody remember to use the female character for the far superior voice acting! She really does make a big difference to the humour and tone.

I had all of this happen to me and it annoyed me so much I couldn't get more than a minute into the game because just getting past the main menu was such an ordeal. No borderless mode was the deal breaker for me, even alt-tabbing basically froze the game forcing me to shut it down in task manager.

You can import your Steam save, but no achievements will unlock on that save.

There are also some broken achievements (6 or so) which is a bit of a shame.

That should be easy enough as the tactics file should still be in my documents/football Manager, I hope anyhow!
It sure is. The path is: C:\Users\Your Username\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2019\gamepass\tactics

Is it possible to use the PS4 controller via USB like with the Steam etc or do I need to do something special?
I run DS4Windows and it works perfectly. Not sure if it will work without that, but it's an install and forget about it program that just runs in the background so you should have it anyways. Makes life easy for those non Steam games that don't recognize any non Xbox controller.

There is quite a bit of connection with 3, and it looks like 5 will also have a strong connection with 3. I recommend playing 3 before 4. As long as you played 1-2. You can skip Judgment I think.

I don't want to say too much as it may be spoilery, but yeah, if you are interested in the story, that's what I would do.

So are some people still needing to reinstall Windows to get their games to work or has that been sorted?

It's a great deal but boy would I like some kind of integration with steam to make in-home streaming seamless, and also it would be nice if half of the games installed I guess, but I'm willing to eat the beta pie on that.

wow... I need to sign up. the amazing thing for me is that there are games that my PC can absolutely 100% handle with zero problem, and it's coming up on 6 years old now (it's a gaming laptop with a GTX 870m in it). what a deal.

Anybody try playing CrossCode with an Xbox One controller? It flat out won't let me. It's even set up in the menus for a controller and I can't do squat unless I use the mouse and keyboard.
Haven’t tried it, but I heard the fix is to plug in the controller after the game starts. If you have the Xbox one controller plugged in and start the game it won’t work.

Funny enough I’m playing with a wired Xbox 360 controller and have no issues.

If you have multiple users on the same PC (local accounts), does anyone know if there's a way to install the games for all users? Right now it seems like it's only installing for the user who downloads the game.

Awesome list and thanks for compiling it for us. I did notice you have SUPERHOT as having achievements. Though according to its "capabilities" within Game Pass it does not note achievements as being supported. Curious if Microsoft missed this.

If you have multiple users on the same PC (local accounts), does anyone know if there's a way to install the games for all users? Right now it seems like it's only installing for the user who downloads the game.
1: Sign into second account on PC
2: Go to the Windows Store (the Game Pass App may work too)
3: Sign out of the Windows Store and sign in the main account that purchased/installed the content
4: Download the content (it will only download for a moment as it will see all the files there)
5: Play with second account. It will have permission from this point onward regardless of whether the first account is signed in

I have messed around with two accounts in the past, but I haven't found a way for an install to go across without doing the above. Someone else may be able to chime in with a better method, but if you just want to pass on the permission for the second account to play, do the above.

I'd say an oversight, as it definitely does have achievements (though one is glitched). I don't know if it's the devs or Microsoft inputting that sort of information, but there are some inconsistencies. Also, Bomber Crew just says: "Capabilities Xbox Live", which isn't very informative. It's not achievements or multiplayer, so I assume it means leaderboards?

I had Steam running in the background and Sunset Overdrive recognized the controller, although with Xbox control prompts. Have yet to try without Steam if that is still possible.
Thank you, folks.

So just a heads up to the people playing games on Xbox PC Gamepass.

Not all the games have Xbox Capabilities. Hollow Knight, Void Bastards, just to name a few, and there are others in the game. Some of you already know this, but in case to anyone starting the app new and wondering if you have xbox live cloud saves, or achievements or xbox live in general.

If in the capabilities it does not state Xbox Live, chances are it does not have any achievements or cloud saves or anything similar.
I've seen a lot of questions about which games have achievements and which don't, so I made a list that separates the games.

The store is missing a lot of games having achievements listed in it’s description.SUPERHOT does have achievements and is a separate list from the Xbox version.

Can someone confirm that Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden has achievements? The game on PC shares a store page with the Xbox version which has achievements in its description and on its club page, so I assumed that it did have them when I made the list last night. On reddit someone told me that the game actually doesn't have achievements on PC, but I'm not able to check now since I'm at work.

It shares the same list as the Xbox One version.

Can I run game pass or the games as non steam games in steam so I can stream to my tv in the living room? Sometimes I feel like playing on my couch and steam makes that easy.

Had some weird issue with my NVMe driver that was causing Windows 1903 not to install.. finally got that figured out so it's installing.. almost there!

Can't wait to give it a try.
