At least the game pass offering has something to look forward to, this has to be one of the worst games with gold months I have ever seen.

I agree,  my hope for next gen is that all these new studios pump out some very good exclusives that they can then toss on GoG over time.

Given the popularity of Game Pass, I wonder if we'll see some kinda merging of Games with Gold with Game Pass.

I honestly wouldn't be that surprised if they just got rid of GWG full stop. Don't get me wrong I love the perk and I download every game that comes "just in case" but some of them I know I'll never ever play. If they could take some of the budget from that and put it back into the Game Pass and bring us more games I'd be fairly OK with that.

I mean they've already raised the RRP by £10 in the UK...which almost covers the cost of a monthly Game Pass sub....

It was £10 over the year though wasn't it? Game Pass is £8 per month, so It's only enough to give you a single month really.

 

I would be happy to see a combined subscription model though, maybe give a small discount across both passes to have them both going. 

 

I've always bought my XBL subs for discounted prices from various places, I don't think I've ever paid £40 for the year or whatever it costs for a year long pass. I am still paying monthly for the game pass now that I think about it though, I should probably look for a deal on an annual sub for that.

Oh yeah good shout. Not sure why I missed that. 

 

They're currently testing that, Game Pass Ultimate for 10.99/month. 

 

Think CD Key have 3 months for 9.99 at the moment.

I had to google the price of XBL because I thought had missed just how much it had gone up by!

 

Good spot on that, I saw they did a 12-month sub for £60 and was very close to just buying that, this works out as a much better deal.

And you can stack.....a whole year for £40 (plus XBL for around £30). Not a bad price.

Yep, I've not stacked anymore than just 3 months, for now, trying to save up for a new bike! 

 

But I think my Game Pass sub was due any day now so it's great timing to have actually done something about this

I keep toying with the idea of get a years worth, but I still only play for around 5/6 hours a week so I don't think I'd be making the most of it. I could probably buy (and own) and number of games for the price in the various sales and deals with Gold and they would keep me busy for the year 😂

Honestly, I should save my money and let my sub die, I very rarely play any of the games. I'm justifying it because I MIGHT want to play them at some point if I get some free time I wouldn't normally have.

Preach. I can't remember the last time I played online or played one of the GwG games. I just let them stack up in my never ending back catalogue. My sub expires in Jul, so I'm going to let it lapse. You've convinced me to do it. 😛

Sorry, I meant my Game Pass sub, I do have a game night each week where I play with some buddies so I definitely want the Gold Sub. However, I tend to play the same games and although one of those is PUBG, I bought it before it was on Game Pass.

I will keep my Live sub.  Every month cannot be good months an while I do not like Golf, or Golf games, I am sure there are many that do.   I will still get them since they are free, but there have been some good GwG or DwG over the years.

So does everyone get their Gold from CDKeys?

I have for a very long time, I know it's one of those grey sites where the legitimacy is questionable but from what I've read they're no G2A and are using the international market to their favour rather than any form of Credit Card Fruad.

I have for a few years, but last year MS had a dashboard offer for £26.50, which was cheaper than most other deals I found at the time.

Actually now you say that, I think I might have taken that one up too.

urgh, No Mans Sky is on there

 

I've really wanted to give that a shot for a long time now, I know it had a rocky start but from what I understand it's a greatly improved game. Just not quite sure I want to spend £30 on it :(

I swear we're the same person. I went through the same thought process when I was putting together this post. That's why I omitted it from by 'best of' list 😛

I know you were thinking about Elite at one point, I've not played nearly enough but I feel the game is just too big for me. I'm terrible at the combat so I've stayed away from those missions but other missions often involve travelling for 20 minutes through systems and it takes a while. I did get to the point of installing Spotify on the Xbox and playing music as I flew and a very laid back way to play, I enjoy it but it's not the most exciting gameplay.

 

NMS is £20 on Amazon which I think is probably more what I'm willing to pay but I'm lazy and really only like to buy digital these days.

      You can earn these Destiny 2: Trials of Osiris rewards from October 23 to 27
      by Asher Madan



      Every week, Destiny 2 hosts a Trials of Osiris event where teams of three compete for access to The Lighthouse. The Lighthouse promises Pinnacle rewards that boost you closer to the current Power Level cap.

      The player vs. player competition also grants other items if you get three, five, or seven wins. However, you'll have to get seven wins in a row, without a loss, if you want to grab the Pinnacle gear from The Lighthouse. You can take a look at the Trials of Osiris rewards from October 23 to 27 below.

      Three wins: The Scholar legendary scout rifle Five wins: Exile's Curse legendary fusion rifle Seven wins: Mark of the Exile legendary armor Flawless: Legs of the Exile legendary armor Trials of Osiris starts at 1 PM EDT on Friday and lasts until 1 PM EDT on Tuesday. You can use the Passage of Mercy from Saint-14 because it forgives one loss if you're aiming for Flawless. If you manage to get seven wins in a row, you'll have to manually select The Lighthouse location displayed in the Crucible menu to obtain the Pinnacle reward. This involves jumping across a few platforms and opening the chest where Saint-14 and Osiris are standing.

      Xbox Live issue preventing Xbox One and Windows 10 users from launching their games [Update]
      by Abhay Venkatesh



      If you were looking to play some games today, heading into the weekend, and fired up a game on your Xbox One or Windows 10 PC only to find that you are unable to access it, you’re not alone. Xbox Support just acknowledged on Twitter that it is aware of an issue with users being unable to access games due to some issues with Xbox Live. The company is actively investigating the issue.

      Depending on some users’ reports on Twitter, it looks like trying to launch games returns a "The person who bought this needs to sign in" message, which likely is due to some authentication issues with Xbox Live. The status page for the service notes that there are issues with ‘Purchase and Content Usage’ that affects launching games or apps. The problem is affecting Xbox One and Windows 10 devices. There is no word on a possible ETA for the restoration of the service.

      Those interested can keep an eye on Twitter or the Xbox Live Status page for updates for more information. Additionally, you can also choose to request for a notification by signing in on the status page and having the site send an Xbox Live notification or text message.

      Update 1: The support account has posted an update on Twitter noting that users should now be able to access their games. However, the status page still notes problems with buying "downloadable" items and launching games.

      Update 2: The Xbox Live Status page has also been updated to reflect that all the issues have been fixed.

      Microsoft releases Windows 10 build 20241.1005 without any changes
      by Rich Woods



      Two days after Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview build 20241 to the Dev channel, it's releasing a cumulative update. The new build number is 20241.1005, and according to Microsoft, it's sole reason for existence is to test the servicing pipelines. According to the blog post, there are no fixes.

      This is the third cumulative update in the Dev channel in less than two weeks, and all of them have been simply to test the servicing pipeline. This is a normal practice, of course, because Microsoft does have to be able to service its updates. It doesn't seem like something that would be quite as necessary in the Dev channel, being that the Dev channel is strictly for the rs_prerelease branch.

      Of course, this could also mean that the firm is prepping a version for the Beta channel. While the Dev channel isn't tied to a specific release, the Beta channel is. Being that the Windows 10 October 2020 Update, or version 20H2, was released earlier this week, something new should be coming to the Beta channel soon.

      It's unclear what's coming though, because there have been rumors that 21H1 has been canceled in favor of the Windows 10X RTM, something that was originally supposed to happen alongside 20H2 before there were delays. It's also possible that there might still be a 21H1 update, although it could be more similar to the enablement package strategy that we've seen from 20H2 and 19H2. we should find out soon.

      The Surface Duo is already $200 off at the Microsoft Store
      by João Carrasqueira

      Microsoft's highly-anticipated dual-screen Android phone finally released last month, and much to the dismay of some fans, it came with a high $1,399 price tag. That can be a bit hard to swallow considering the phone is using some less than stellar internals, like a Snapdragon 855 chipset without 5G support and just 6GB of RAM.

      If you've been holding out for a deal on the Surface Duo, today might be your day. Over on the Microsoft Store, the Surface Duo is on sale for $200 below its usual price, which means it now starts at slightly more reasonable $1,199 for the 128GB model. The 256GB variant is also discounted to by $200, so it costs $1,399.

      In addition to the Snapdragon 855 chipset and 6GB of RAM, the specs of the Surface Duo include a 3,577mAh battery and a single 11MP camera that serves as both a rear- and front-facing camera depending on the device's posture. Evidently, it has two 5.6-inch AMOLED screens with Surface Pen support, and they add up to an 8.1-inch display in the typical 3:2 aspect ratio of Surface devices. The Surface Duo is a very thin device, with each half being just 4.8mm thin.

      You can buy the Surface Duo from the Microsoft Store here. Best Buy also has a $200 discount on the phone without activation.
