    30 min queue because it’s busy or because it’s empty? Hmm

    Lol it’s a queue to get into the menu of the game cause it’s busy. You insta queue for games

    Any of the Borderlands games. They are masterpieces.

    The Outer Worlds is also fantastic.

    I'm confused how this works. I watched for an hour, clicked Claim on Twitch, and it never gives me a code

    EDIT: Nevermind, I'm an idiot.

    Watched the videos and they don’t seem that great? Also, isn’t there a long queue to wait to get into games? Like upwards of 30mins I read, not sure if that’s still the case.

    I played one game before I left for softball. Went 17-3 with a 9 kill streak. So yeah, it’s fun. The guns are pretty generic from what I see, but it’s cool picking from an AR to a Carbine to the Sniper.

    my dude, it's literally the next line after the part you quoted...

    I search with Bing so I don't have to pay for GamePass. Seems like a pretty fair tradeoff.

    Oops.... Clearly I missed this post and all of the responses to it before posting yesterday. Sounds like the reviews are generally positive if you actually get into games?

    Hades but with a light mechanic and a stamina meter that takes some practice to get used too. As you open more doors and get hit by energy your corruption meter fills which give you curses which give you new abilities but also take away some kind of like the attribute mechanic from Outer Wilds

    I feel like there are a lot of great hades etc style games out rn. Many not on xbox but Raji and Deaths door are and both are great. If you have another system Dreamscaper, Grime, Eldest Souls are all solid.

    Anxiously awaiting the announcement of the release date. In the past, they drop news like that and the game is available a week or two later.

    I love rogue lites. Hades is a wonderful blend of Diablo style gameplay with a rogue lite. It is just a delight.

    Is there any kind of estimate to when the next gen consoles will be readily available?

    Also I read an article a few days ago claiming that most people will need to spend 800+ dollars to get all the necessities for the Xbox next gen consoles. That can’t be right?
