Yakuza: Like a Dragon is coming to Gamepass.
Sweet, hopefully it drops during the presentation tomorrow …
Knew this was coming, but I already bought it and have no regrets, such a awesome game. Played Yakuza 0, then went straight to this because I love turn based story driven games way more than action based.
Great. I was just about to buy it. Gamepass is great.
It's a great gamepass game but I've only till start of July before my GPU is up. I dunno whether to carry on for another 3 months guess tomorrow's conference will make my mind up or not
Lol just make a new account every month and buy the trial for $1. You can play on your main works on PC and Xbox. Have spent like less than $10 since September 2020 and played over several hundreds of dollars worth of games for nothing.
Is this not stupid as you can't carry your gamer score.? If that's all you want to do I guess it's fine but true gamers dont do stuff like that as it's about your tag, your score and your respect.
@Orbilator “True gamers”…. Lol that was fun. Putting aside that constantly creating accounts sounds very annoying (and petty tbh), gamerscore and trophies are basically a cherry on top at best, completely irrelevant at worst. No one should really be putting any extra real value into them, they are just arbitrary scores/points
That's extremely dishonest.
@Orbilator ……I don’t mean to be rude… but that might be the most embarrassing thing I’ve ever read. Especially if you’re over 18. Please be under 18.
Who care about Gamer score or trophy. I already platinum this game, is that mean I should stop playing it? I rather save money than some stupid digital badge.
Anything not to do your part in supporting the industry, huh? Not a supporter of GP, as I prefer to buy my games like an adult. This is an example of exactly why MS can't actually sell games and has to buy them to GIVE them away. Perhaps if you'd actually think about what goes into a game, as a whole, you'd be willing to think about something besides your own pocket. No wonder all the best content happens to elude the Xbox while Sony and Nintendo continue to flourish. Their supporters are actually willing to support their efforts. I can't understand how people can't see how the affects of being so selfish can harm the community. I digress....
@surgical Calm down, champ. "I buy my games, like an adult" If you have any television subscription services, you better only be purely watching their original content, or else you're a complete hypocrite. Something tells me you probably are. While you mull that over, I'll enjoy the fact another quality title is coming to the quality service because I'm a consumer. Not somebody who feels the need to spend much more money just to award myself brownie points for being a big "adult" real gamer.
Making new account every month is extreme cheap skating no thanks.
Nah, that is silly. Every month you will have to start over in every game that you are playing.
Some of you guys don't understand. You make a smurf account which you set as "home" on your Xbox and play on your MAIN profile. It's a cheapskate way to play stuff for pretty much nothing and achievements and progress is saved on your main. I don't know if that made sense. I don't care if I'm screwing any developers over. I just play for cheap since games are half baked nowadays and some are $100 at launch (Canada).
Hey Teddy, if that's even your real name....😐 I, in fact, do only watch original programing on my streaming services. Here's a breakdown😁: Netflix: Atypical and Peaky Blinders Epix: Godfather of Harlem Showtime: Billions Hbo: Succession Paramount: Yellowstone Starz: American God's Outside of these things, I purchase my entertainment physically. I don't purchase as a pat on the back but because at full price the industries I support get what they've projected to receive in profitability. Hard work deserves a proper reward. Imagine your master paying you a discounted wage because it suited his motives better. You should probably speak on what you know instead of speculating on what you have no understanding of. I am a business and profit consultant so I love to see businesses flourish to their highest potential. Discounts are fine but the wait to get them is a choir. Paying full price is giving what you'd expect to receive if it were you selling a product. Imagine having a business where people were only willing to pay you if you discount your merchandise....you would hate it if it were you. Hypocrite much?🤣🤣
Game pass has some great games and getting more all the time, well worth the money in my opinion!
Same, honestly I cannot be bothered to keep canceling and looking for deals and honestly it's freaking $15/month (or $10 if you don't do ultimate) I have already spent more than that on my PS5 on SM:MM, R&C and Returnal and I have played way more games and more time on gamepass. That is not a drag on Sony, because I loved SM:MM and R&C is almost positively going to be my personal GOTY, just pointing out the value/quality gamepass offers for me.
Just think of all the great first party games that will be coming to game pass on day one via the Bethesda purchase! It's a good time to have an Xbox!
I don't see why people don't see what the reality of GP really is. It is the evidence that the Xbox community is unwilling to buy their games. When you start paying attention to a the 2nd and 3rd party profit reports, you'll begin to notice the pattern that even the Switch outperforms the Xbox in selling games. To each their own, but saying you love gaming so much that you'd prefer to force your preference to have to pay for a game upfront to temporarily allow you to access it, is absurd. Why is the Xbox lacking in the Exclusives department? Side stepping the acquisition talks and promises, it is because their community celebrates not supporting the industry with their wallets. What else could MS do besides GP? Continue to make games that no one's willing to purchase?
Are you okay bro?
More like those praising it don't or can't see the shallowness GP represents. The temptation it gives MS, who have always had issues with game development, to not make games. Just buy popular IPs or/and their studios.
This year, The Ascent, The Gunk, Horizon 5, Halo, Flight Simulator, Scorn, Elder Scrolls Online, and more are all Game Pass day 1. With Game Pass you get a discount to buy the games. Elder Scrolls Online, will be a minimum of $59.99 without Game Pass. That is 6 months of GPU.
@surgical I own all platforms and support and dev that makes a good game. Game pass is really great value it let's me try the games BEFORE I buy the physical copy. Just wish I could play some of the ps games before I buy them that way I'd never of brought the last of us 2 which I brought off of the greatness of the 1st game.
Gamepass your not buying any games you are just playing them but you have to keep a sub going
Back 4 Blood leaked earlier today too. I hope that one is true.
That will be huge if true. And I suspect it is - I doubt the publisher wrote that incorrectly.
I was definitely buying B4B. If it hits Gamepass that will be pretty awesome.
I really enjoyed the alpha, though it needed work. That's the point of releasing an alpha though; to get feedback.
I'll sign back up just to play Back 4 Blood. Make it happen Microsoft
Looks like it's happening.
Why don't you actually pay for the game so the DEVELOPERS can benefit from it too? I've never seen so many selfish gamers in my life. If I couldn't afford to pay, I'd just stop playing to focus on being able to....
Devs appear to love gamepass. The technical art guy from codemasters was positively dribbling over how brilliant it was
Why do developers/publishers happily take these deals? These businesses, both big and small - you know - those things who exist to make money and be financially viable, seem happy to take these deals. Some even state they make more sales AFTER being put on gamepass. How about you stop being greedy and allow these developers to make money in whatever say they see fit; and then not judge people for supporting those decisions?
What developer wouldn't take money up front instead of risking falling short depending on gamers who don't want to support their efforts?
Atm, 1$ and other deals are making gamepass a great option... not sure at full price...
If you play more than 2 games a year, it's worth the full price. I play 3 games every month.
But if you compare it to PS+ it suddenly looks pretty damn good
Even PS Now. People try to defend it with how many games are on offer, but so much of it is shovelware filler. It's like going to a used game store, and trying to buy Wii games. Even the exclusives they put on the store. They're now so cheap, you might as well spend a few extra bucks and actually own them, instead of using the service. And that's to say you hadn't already bought them in the years prior to being put on there. There's going to be biased people who want to claim that gamepass games are all trash, but I typically want to play most of the new games that come to the service.
"Gamepass doesn't have new or good games" Can we finally put this bs to bed now? Gamepass is great, I have been able to play so many games at an affordable price that would usually take me months and in some cases years to play.
And how does that help anyone BUT you? You can play the same games if you actually buy them. Though I understand everyone can't afford to shell out thousands a year on gaming, I also support the idea that life comes with sacrifices. If you can't afford to actually pay to improve the industry, that's evidence enough to hang the controller up until you can. Celebrating being cheap is not something that people should be proud of, if it hurts the industry.🤷🏾♂️
I for one couldn't care less about improving this industry unless we're talking about the indie gaming scene to whom Gamepass is actually benefitial. I don't see why I should help improve an industry thats asks gamers to pay to play the online portion of games they already paid for, an industry to whom false advertisement and broken games at launch are just another run of the mill business practices, an industry that employs predatory monetary schemes in order to maximize profits, an industry that designs games around those very same predatory monetization schemes. Your hollier than thou attitude is quite laughable considering the industry you're advocating for is as amoral as they come.
@surgical Man, you really sound like a spoiled, and bitter d-bag. 1st - you can also purchase games on GP at a discount. 2nd - I bet if (and probably when) Sony eventually copies Gamepass like EA and soon Ubisoft, guys like you will jump on it if you would be able to play Sony 1st party games for free on day 1. It doesn't make someone "cheap" or "unsupportive" of the games industry or developers. It makes someone a smart consumer in a hobby that's getting increasingly more expensive to enjoy. Telling people they should "hang up their controller" if they can't afford to "improve the industry " is pretentious and dumb. Maybe people like you are actually undermining the community because you're contributing to "development crunch".
I didn't realise I was obligated to help anyone but myself. They are offering me a service, I like the service, so I subscribe to it. Also, I won't apologise for not caring about the industry, it's not my job to care, it's their job, and all I see is an industry that is trying to drain the wallets of their customers. Finally, just shut up, I see through your bullshit. If this was Sony, you wouldn't give a damn. Just look at the state of your comment history. You have digs at Xbox, Nintendo and PC gaming but constantly praise Sony. You're just a pathetic fanboy taking jabs at something popular on another system.
I don't take part in anything that does not allow me ownership of my product. I've got well over 10k and I'm more than happy to purchase them all. I work hard to afford what I want so services like GP don't appeal to me. I own damn near every game they offer so why bother? When a company has a great track record of delivering quality product there's faith in purchasing what they offer. What more proof is needed of the lack of faith that MS has in their community than the existence of GP?
Bitter? To what end? The game industry is not a perfect one, but not one industry is, so if I wait for perfection I'd support nothing. Pretentious? Who's pretending? For what? Gamers like me? What type of gamer am I, sir?🤣🤣 I just prefer to pay, what's the issue? If you can't afford a vacation, you just don't go, how is gaming any different?
@ Hermit For a person that has dedicated his life to being more than just a couch dweller with a controller, I've invested enough to speak openly. Hey buddy, I own ALL the systems and have since I was 4 years old. Became a senior director for a leading game retailer, opened my own chain of game stores across multiple cities, gained over 88k customers, highly decorated in my community, currently thriving in spite of Covid....what's your resume look like? Or are you just another person that finds their confidence behind a keyboard with no real world results to show for their efforts outside of their gamerscore? I'm more than certain your type would NEVER tell me to shut up in person. Just another passive aggressive that can only be great in the virtual world. How many hours in Skyrim do you brag to your friends about? Pathetic, huh? Fanboy? I'm neither, sir, just a person who invests large volumes of actual money to add VALUE to his opinion through experience. When a person buys into a product and says what they don't like about it, that is not an act of fanboyism but a CONSUMER REPORT.🤣Perhaps, you heard of the publication that actually illustrates the same idea?🤔 Lastly, if this was Sony I'd still not support it as I prefer to purchase what I like. Hence owning well over 5k games on Sony's platform alone. Never have been in the market to receive freebies. That mindset would not allow me to be where I am today. Able to purchase what I like, no matter the cost.🤷🏾♂️ Clearly the definition of pathetic to be sure....I've paid my dues into what I love, what about you?🤔🤣 Note: Stop being a creep and stalking comments, it's not a good look and is in poor taste. Stay classy.😁
Like a Boss
Great game. Been playing it on PS5 since March. I'm enjoying it more than I expected to, I'm surprised by how well the turn based combat works. Not finished it yet, I'm at chapter 12 and suddenly found that I'm underpowered by about 10 levels so doing a lot of grinding which has taken the shine off somewhat. But overall I think the game is great, it is a lot of fun
GamePass keeps on giving!
