  • Gotta try out Darksiders and Man of Medan, being wanting to play those games for a while but never got around to purchasing.
  • I'm guessing this is not the FF7 remake and is the original. I got really excited for about 3 seconds.
  • So is Kingdom Come only leaving PC or is it also leaving Xbox? Because that final part is confusing to me.
  • Not to speak ill of the games we did get in PC, but look at how console gets two AAA games and we get only indies. Is it really, really that hard to make the same deals for PC? Game Pass PC is still being treated like a second class citizen.
