YIIK: A Postmodern RPG (PC) ID@Xbox – January 14
This surreal JRPG-styled game set in 1999 has college graduate Alex witnessing a woman vanish from an elevator. He soon rounds up a band of misfits from the Internet to investigate her disappearance, employing vinyl LPs, cameras, and other oddities in battles that blend twitch-based minigames with turn-based combat, as they brave booby-trapped factories and puzzle-ridden caves in search of the truth.

  • My Friend Pedro (Console and PC)

Well, nothing there for me. This looks more like Games with Gold or PS+ than a GamePass list.

Which games are we losing this month?

So that email from Melissa few days ago was about PES? PES 2020 left GP and people were sad and now it returns as PES 21 Seasonal Updates.

These games are kinda meh, I got PES 2021 on PS4 to use Option Files with a USB which Xbox still doesn't allow you to do.

For anyone who has played Torchlight 3 how is it? I've wanted to get it but wasn't sure if it was good or bad.

Torchlight 3 is a bit better than at launch and still not anywhere close to the quality of 2. I might hop in to see how the console version is

This is the worst month yet I think, especially for PC gamepass.

I didn't realize that the games are split between PC, Cloud, and Console. I thought if a game was on one, it'll be on all 3 this whole time.

That’s a bad month, I guess I could try Injustice 2 though since Tekken 7 is leaving.

Nope, despite what some people like to parrot that's only always the case with 1st party games, same goes for cross-save.

It's not whole month, at least we know that The Medium is coming.

Sad to see FTL go. I don't know why they don't keep these cheap but really great indie games that got classic status on GP permanently. Seems like a bad decision. Doesn't affect me because I bought it so won't cry over it, but it's still strange.

F*ck me, just bought Injustice 2 two days ago.
At least it was the Legendary version and very cheap.

They are treating gamepass as an extended demo / preview service.. As a way to encourage people to try and if they like, buy
A pretty generous demo since it’s the full game and it was added a year ago...

I think it’s more the agreement being made for one year and expiring.

not gonna lie, this is the worst list of new games I've seen so far.

especially funny how Tekken 7, a really good fighting game, leaves...
and Injustice 2, a fucking terrible fighting game, comes in...

lol

I bought and played Little Acre on Switch. It's a charming little point and click adventure game. I'd recommend it.
