    Ugh. I guess we can't expect anything good anymore from GWG, with them putting all the good stuff in GamePass.

    Microsoft has obviously stopped even trying.

    This is embarrassing.

    Are they trying to force us all to not even consider their next Xbox next year?

      In reply to Hypnotoad:

      I switched my gold to the unlimited pass back in June when it was only a dollar or so. at this point, while I "buy" the games, I don't even care, all now simply suck. but at least I have access to the ones from the ultimate pass

    Disney's Bolt was one of my top-10 favorite Xbox 360 games, highly recommend it. There is a bug that if you attack an enemy when they are near a ladder it can crash the game but other than that it's a solid platformer.

    Who doesn't want to be a Badass Elephant? I'm actually playing the old Xbox Ninja Gaiden thanks to backwards compat and Game Pass Ultimate, so I think I'd probably enjoy Ninja Gaiden 3!
