Since the game pass library will be in flux it's worth posting the new additions and later on what they take out.

Firewatch! If you haven't played that it should be a crime not to grab that for free

I've watched a playthrough of Firewatch, I can't imagine enjoying the game after seeing the vast majority of what it has to offer.

 

Haven't we had FH2 before?

 

Meh month for me if this is it :(

Yeah, if you've seen it, there isn't much else to it tbh. Picked it up in one of the last summer sales, great game otherwise. The ending was a little meh, but the rest was fantastic.

I guess we give it a few more days and get the official word from MS or Major Nelson.

 

Edit - I've just seen some pics of the alleged first leak and it looks a little fake.

I'm not overly keen on either offering, to be honest. Gigantic is just not my type of game and Dark souls will likely end with me smashing something.

Man I could use Condemned.  And the sequel, which never seemed to exist digitally.  That was a great series.

      Microsoft Azure icon gets a Fluent Design makeover
      by Anmol Mehrotra



      In a blog post, Microsoft unveiled a new icon for its Azure cloud service. The icon is based on Microsoft’s Fluent Design System that debuted back in 2017.

      Microsoft has noted that the new icon will be available across all the Azure services as well as on the website in the coming weeks. The company also highlighted that the new icon represents “unity of Azure within the larger Microsoft family of product icons” and is carefully crafted to look familiar to “what customers know and love” while representing the future of the service.

      Microsoft Azure is not the first service to get a Fluent Design makeover. Back in 2018, Microsoft started rolling out Fluent Design elements for Office apps and in 2019, the company unveiled new icons for its services including Windows. Since then, the company has been hard at work to update all of its services with the new Fluent Design System.

      As usual, the new icon for Azure services will roll out in the coming weeks and Microsoft will allow users to chip in and share their thoughts. If you are interested in sharing suggestions or criticism with Microsoft, then you can do so using the feedback form.

      Microsoft Edge bug causing crashes when viewing YouTube videos, fix in the works
      by Abhay Venkatesh



      If you have been facing issues with streaming YouTube videos on Microsoft Edge, you may not be alone. Reports have been pouring in about users facing constant browser crashes when streaming videos on YouTube. Reddit threads detailing the issue (spotted by Techdows) date back to 15 days ago, with more users running stable version 90 builds seemingly starting to be plagued in the recent days.

      A response from a Microsoft engineer in the forums two weeks ago urged users to try disabling hardware acceleration as a workaround. However, the same engineer confirmed yesterday on Reddit that the bug is likely more significant and that there are a “couple of situations around this”. The individual added that those facing browser crashes can try downloading and running the latest Canary builds to check if their issues have been addressed via the bug fix that’s implemented in that version of the browser. Additionally, the company is also requesting feedback and crash reports from those that have been affected.

      To be clear, the Redmond firm has been tracking issues with YouTube playback caused by some ad blocking extensions in the Dev channel builds. However, the mentioned problem reported by users seems to be a different one, where YouTube begins loading the video in full-screen and then freezes the browser, often causing a crash. One of the workarounds mentioned in the posts was to head to the browser’s task manager (by hitting shift+esc) and ending the task that is consuming the most resources. However, this workaround too has been a hit and miss.

      With a partial fix already heading to Canary channel builds, it wouldn’t be surprising to see it propagate through the Dev and Beta channels quickly before eventually being introduced to the stable channel. However, those interested can head to the Insider downloads page here and download Edge Canary.

      Windows 10X reportedly delayed indefinitely, focus to shift to Windows 10
      by Abhay Venkatesh



      In what may be disappointing news for Windows fans, Microsoft is reportedly delaying the release of Windows 10X – its next-generation operating system – indefinitely. The report comes from Petri, citing information from those in the know of the matter.

      Microsoft originally showed off Windows 10X in 2019 alongside the Surface Neo and Surface Duo. While the Surface Duo that was powered by Android made it to the market, the Neo was delayed and Windows 10X was repurposed for single-screened devices. A supposed near-final build of the modern OS even leaked and Microsoft was said to be readying the platform for release sometime this spring. That timeline moved once again to later in the fall this year, according to reports.

      However, Petri reports that those plans have now changed, with Windows 10X now on the backburner. The company is reportedly moving resources back to Windows 10, which is expected to receive a major update codenamed Sun Valley later this year. As for 10X, there is no concrete information on if and when the OS will see the light of the day, and it is possible that the offering as we know it will never make it to users.

      A few reasons for the decision, according to insiders, include the fact that the OS just was not ready. The firm reportedly believes that the “timing and market conditions” are not right and that the feedback from users, too, has not been as positive as it may have hoped to. While enthusiasts hoped to see 10X make it to new devices, marketing a brand-new OS on new devices, especially during the times of the pandemic that has seen the adoption of traditional Windows 10 PCs increase, might have been difficult. Add to the fact that at launch, the OS was said to lack support for traditional Win32 apps, which again might have worked against the offering.

      Additionally, the report states that the company execs feel that Windows 10X doesn’t offer solutions that its customers want. Therefore, it makes sense for the Redmond giant to introduce certain features such as seamless updates and app containers to Windows 10 while working on a possible lightweight platform for release.

      As it stands now, it is safe to assume that Windows 10X as we know it is dead and so are plans to introduce a lightweight Chromebook competitor OS. It is not clear if the company will publicly announce the plans that it has for Windows 10, including the visual overhaul and new Microsoft Store policies at its Build conference later this month. The report from Petri does state that the company will make “formal announcements” about the fate of the OS, so it will be interesting to see what those are.

      Windows 10 build 21376 is now available with a new font and other improvements
      by João Carrasqueira



      Following on last week's release of build 21370, Microsoft is sticking to a Thursday release for this week's Windows 10 build in the Dev channel, build 21376. Like the past few releases, this one is from the co_release branch, which would usually indicate that Microsoft may be getting ready to wrap up development on the next feature update for Windows 10.

      This build is fairly light on news, but it does include a new Segoe UI Variable font, which is designed to scale better across different display sizes, specifically larger ones. The original Segoe UI font was designed to optimal at 9pt sizes, but this variant should adapt better to different displays.

      Not every part of the UI will be using Segoe UI Variable right away, though, so you may not see changes in all elements of the OS.

      Aside from that, the build mostly consists of smaller improvements, including a new icon for the Connect app. Here's what else is new:

      The focus right now seems to be on bug fixes, and there's a lengthy list of them to look forward to in this build. Here's everything that's been fixed:

      As Microsoft moves to focus on stability, the list of known issues keeps shrinking, and this time it's the smallest we've seen in quite a while. Here's what you need to be aware of before installing this one:

      Since builds in the Dev channel are no longer tied to a specific Windows 10 feature update, it's hard to say when general users may be able to try out the improvements made in the past few builds. The next feature update, version 21H1, is a simple enablement package without much in the way of new features. We're expecting to see a more significant update in the second half of the year, though, and it could include some of these changes, but that remains to be seen.
