I'm playing Hellblade on Game Pass PC and quite often the fps drops to 20. Not 19, not 21, exactly 20. And the GPU usage will be at around 60%, so predictably, lowering settings did not work. I'm having a hard time googling any sort of solution because all the results are for Hellblade's steam version. Anyone here know anything?

I know it's not the proper thread, but how often 360 games/dlcs go on sale? I want to buy Dead Rising Case West but it's always full price.

Is it the same with v-sync off?

Played Jump Force

The game looks gorgeous on 4k, like is blowing my mind how pretty is, and I don't hate the models that much, but god the framerate is so terrible, in the cutscenes they look like slideshows

Between that and that the initial roster only has OP, DB and Naruto characters made me lost interest on this game quickly (which sucks since everything else is amazing)

I quit because the game itself seems awful.

Stilted dialogue, slow cutscenes, a far too large hub area that takes too long to get from A to B, and combat that's pretty dull.

I kinda want to play on a bit, but I can't say I disagree with anything you said. When the first cutscene started running at 15fps on the X (this several months after launch, so with multiple patches applied methinks) I thought to myself: oh boy. And the thought of having to endure that to unlock some of the more intriguing characters (nothing against the 3 franchises in showcase but I played those characters half a million times already) like the ones from Hunter X Hunter or Death Note... it's rough.

I think you unlock the HxH characters after the second tutorial. Couldn’t have even taken an hour. Pretty much once you pick from those three teams.

Have to echo the statements about that final Ashen boss.

I luckily played the game when it first hit Game Pass and was fortunate enough to be teamed up with a capable player. When the boss fell I immediately started writing a message to thank the stranger, before I even sent it they had sent a message to me thanking me and saying what a bastard of a boss it was. Pretty funny.

lol yeah fuck that shit. I'm glad I wrote about it, I'll feel less bad leaving it undefeated now. I'll look the cut scene up on YouTube just in case it's remotely interesting.

Use this site to get a handy graph for how often a game goes on sale:

Edit: not sure why my link turned out like that but it should go to the right page. Also, the search function on that site sucks so use Google/Bing + game title.

I have basically heard no one ever talk about Smoke and Sacrifice, but I randomly have been playing and enjoying it. The combat is janky but it has a nice Survival RPG crafting loop of building new gear for the next area and then exploring, etc. I'm on the last area and have enjoyed exploring to find all the craft recipes.

Late to the party, but just finished Gears 4. Enjoyed it a lot - won't change your mind if you didn't like previous ones though.

Took a bit to get going, but Act II onwards was great stuff.

never played any of the series, but I'll probably give it a shot soonish (I would play Gears 1 Ultimate, but apparently performance is broken on PC)
It's almost impossible to get to run smoothly (as in stable framerate, proper framepacing and no stutters), but it's not unplayable or anything. And even despite the shortcomings, it's stil a fantastic and almost perfectly paced action game, with a ton of variety from encounter to encounter.

I could have sworn Children of Morta was announced as a launch Game Pass game a while ago, but then Inside Xbox didn't mention it when they presented the game yesterday. Have I made a mistake?

Can anyone help? I'm owning Dead Cells both on PC and on Xbox (GamePass), but whenever I boot it up on PC with my Live Account, I cannot select the savegame from my Xbox (it just isn't there). Both are using the same Xbox Live account. Does this game not support cross saving?

So I just downloaded Shantae Helf Genie Hero which should be removed in a few days, when it gets removed can I still play it? How long does it takes to beat the main campaign?

Has opus magnum been on game pass this whole time? I just discovered it was there today. I’ve almost pulled the trigger on it multiple times

If I can barely run Forza Horizon 3 on my PC, should I expect the same or worse performance from 4? I'm curious if I can play it some time...
If you barely ran it I wouldn't expect much of a difference with 4. (although it seems more optimized than 3 tbh but not by a lot)

Ah, shoot!

Thought we get “Northgard“ today, but it is “Bad North“ instead xD

I don't mind. Downloaded it, played a bit on Normal difficulty and got a Game Over pretty early on, so I decided to lower it to Easy and now I'm having fun :)

Neat little game with simple Gameplay.
