Indeed, I’m only half an hour or so in but already it is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. 

Yeah, I mean aside from the astonishing imagination that has gone into it, the graphics are jaw dropping at times - the incredible reflections, the lighting, the backgrounds - I'm not sure I've seen anything that looks like this before. Definitely enjoying it, and it deserves all the praise,  I wish in parts the actual game elements were fleshed out a little more - perhaps a bit more of a 'Limbo-esque' puzzler,  but with these aesthetics. Still, a massively enjoyable surprise.

The artful escape is one of the greatest games iv ever played. The style is lovely, visually it's like nothing I have ever seen, the music is out of this world. What a pleasant surprise when I stuck it on this afternoon. 

Well, you’ve certainly piqued my interest

I lasted approx 3 mins, was horrific


Thank christ - I thought I’d turned old when I couldn’t control the bloody thing. I did manage the first leg transplant but I rage quit when they wanted me to use the bonesaw.

It's sublime. Initially I thought this is pretty cool looking then when it got going I was say jamming away loving it. Really shows the strength of gamepass, I never would have even looked twice at this.

Not since Tekken 2 have I mashed the X button so much.

 

The Artful Escape is an absolute joy. It's staggering how good and how different this is to my tiny, now blown, mind

I just downloaded this based on the intriguing comments here.   I've just played for almost 2 hours straight, in awe at the visual and audio landscape.  Spectacular.  

 

I reminds me of Bill and Ted *air guitar*  :wub:

If like me you're constantly extending your 3 years GPU sub here's another great deal.

 

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate – 3 Month Subscription £14.85 using code (via Turkey VPN - New and Existing Subs) @ Eneba / Jetpak

 

Just added 6 months to mine for £29 so it runs until Sept 2024.

 

Worked amazingly painlessly for me too. My VPN even decided it was fine with going to Turkey, which it normally isn't.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but - I've got a Game Pass Ultimate subscription, should I be able to access Cloud Gaming in the Windows Xbox App yet?

So today, we’re opening up new possibilities for you to remotely play console games on your Windows 10 PCs (or later) with updates to the Xbox app, including support for:

 

Playing Xbox Game Pass games from the cloud  

Playing games directly from your console with Xbox remote play

 

With these new updates, you now can play some of your favorite console titles on a wide range of PCs, even those that don’t have the specs required for certain PC titles. Streaming games through the Xbox app provides the quickest way to play without having to install games on your PC, giving you more time to dive right into Psychonauts 2, Hades, or whatever else you are playing.

 

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members in 22 countries can now play Game Pass games directly from the cloud in the Xbox app on Windows 10 PCs.

 

To access games from the cloud on your Windows 10 PC, all you need is an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership and a compatible controller. Open the Xbox App, click the “cloud gaming” button, and select from hundreds of games in your Game Pass library, 

 

It sounds like I should, but there's no Cloud Gaming button in my app.

Sounds like it, you just need to download the necessary Xbox app apparently.

 

I'm more interested In the streaming locally from console, really missed that feature so glad it's back.

I can see Cloud gaming in the PC app now, but nothing about streaming from my own Xbox. 

 

If you have the latest update for the Xbox app it's in the middle of the screen next to 'All PC games'.  Its pretty much nothing more than a hot link to the web app though - performance seems identical to me (pretty damned good over ethernet but still clearly streaming).

 

The remote play option is in the top tool bar next to the bell for alerts (an icon of an Xbox with arrows above and below it).  Not working terribly well for me.  I managed to connect to my old Xbone but very laggy - refused to connect to my Series S at all (did the spaceship loading screen and then  black screen before throwing up an error message).

 

Work in progress I reckon

Frame rate discussion has been split into a new thread. I suspect there's another thread kicking around with that kind of thing in it, but it's probably old and I'd rather have a new thread than dig up the corpse of a long dead thread. Anyway, if you want to continue that discussion, fill your boots.

Looking forward to Phoenix Point, Julian Gollop is always good, had no idea it was even getting an Xbox conversion. 
 

Also have Aragami 2 downloaded and waiting. 
 

Didn’t know Subnautica Below Zero was arriving so soon after release either, just so many games.
