    Fantastic, thank you. Might have to pick this up on Friday then.
    It's either this or going back and giving Witcher 3 GOTY a go.

    Never liked the Fallout games but the outer space bit has me interested. Either way, it's free on Game Pass so no disadvantages to trying it.

    I agree with you there but it's never cost me more than £1 per month for the six or so months I've had Game Pass. That's near enough free in my eyes. :p

    Lots of reviews out and it's doing well. Biggest criticism seems to be that it's just like Fallout.

    Reviews look good and being just like Fallout is perfect for me. Going to enjoy this.....

    Gears 5 great?! wow, not sure how anyone can claim that. It’s like a unity engine game and has such clunky “open-world” sections that have no purpose but to drag the game out. Easily the worst gears game.

    Behave yourself, it’s not a Microsoft published game. The distinction for 1st party game pass titles is that they are Microsoft Studios published.

    Microsoft have no need to put it on game pass.

    I'm trying to play it in coop and it's a buggy mess. Regular audio drops for player 2 and the camera losing connection to the player are ruining the game for me.

    More gumpf. Obsidian Entertainment is a subsidiary of Microsoft Studios, which now makes them a first party developer.

    I'll grant you that the timing of the purchase complicates things a little with the non-Microsoft publisher, but there was no way anyone sane thought that this was not going to be on Game Pass on launch day as it's a big title from a first party development team.

    Edit: Being a first party developer has nothing to do with the publisher, other than traditionally the console manufacturer also publishes the game. Nintendo don't publish all of their first party games (particularly in Europe) so this is far from setting a precedent there.

    5 was definitely the worst of the series, but I still enjoyed it. All the other games I have always had difficult putting down due to how the missions seamlessly follow into each other. With 5, I kept finding good places to stop playing for the day due to the open world nature (travel A to B) just giving me natural stopping points. Then because I had stopped playing, I found myself just playing other games instead.

    Downloading now with gamepass, great to also see Fallout New vegas on GP, I would have instantly played that as never did finish it, but with this being similar I hold off that for now.

    Does it use the same VATS thing where you pause time to target as everyone is saying it's like Fallout in space?
