Well, the other guy got 25 kills, so I think it was actually a loss.

Got an Xbox Series X, because I have poor impulse control. Visuals aren't blowing me away so far. Halo Infinite is fun. Also got Guardians of the Galaxy from Gamepass... is there a reason Starlord is so whiny?

Tbf, the other guy maaaaaaaaaay play on a bit more of a regular basis than yourself lol

Yeah, the visual are alright. Definitely a cross-gen game for sure, but there's also a lot of issues with the engine. The gameplay loop is top notch for Infinite though. I just wish the content was there. Not really a reason lol it's just what the writers chose, but still a really fun game. 

I got 6 kills this time... so I'm twice as good. At this rate, I'll be the best player in the world in a month.

Any games on gamepass that will show off the graphics better?

Off the top of my head, Gears 5, Forza Horizon 5, Microsoft Flight Simulator, and Doom Eternal are the first I can think of. Psychonauts 2 is also really a great looking game.

You're already better than half of the players now. 

Forza Horizon 5, Gears 5, Sea of Thieves, Psychonauts 2, Jedi Fallen Order, Ori 1and 2, A Plagues Tale, Hitman Trilogy, MK11, The Ascent, Yakuza Like a Dragon, Jurassic World Evolution 2, Gears Tactics, Doom Eternal, and Sniper Elite 5 released today on Game Pass.

Already played Psychonauts 2 on XBone, and it was good, but not so good that I'd play through it again. Been meaning to try Doom Eternal, so maybe I'll try that.

I keep getting 6-th to 8th place, so probably not. Thanks for the recomendation. Maybe Ori is worth a shot. I try not to play Metroidvanias though unless I'm going to only play that one game for a while.

Edit: Finally won a game. Snipers and shotguns. Went on a killing frenzy and managed to keep a step ahead the rest of the game.

The Coalition is definitely the graphics powerhouse studio. Gears 5 looks so good, definitely looking forward to next game they make.

@poll, if coalition feels they can continue to make solid Gears games than I'm all for it lol I'm sure they can explore different characters and timelines. Though I'll admit the story in Gears is secondary to me, I love the top tier TPS gameplay and co-op exp.

The final goalpost should demand you buzz right by an ATC tower to get a short cinematic of some guy spilling his coffee everywhere and yelling "goddamn it!"



For a few years, rumors have persisted that Microsoft was exploring building some form of streaming stick to offer Xbox Cloud Gaming via a more affordable dongle, similarly to Chromecast and Google Stadia. The first hint was Project Hobart. More recently, a code name "Keystone" appeared in an Xbox OS list, lending fire to rumors that Microsoft was continuing to explore additional hardware for the Xbox lineup. 

We can now confirm that that is indeed true, and it pertains to a modernized HDMI streaming device that runs Xbox Game Pass and its cloud gaming service. Microsoft is, however, taking exploring additional iterations of the product before taking it to market. 

In a statement provided to Windows Central, a Microsoft spokesperson described its commitment to lowering boundaries to Xbox content via low cost-hardware, while acknowledging that the existing version of Keystone needs a little more time to bake before going live.

“Our vision for Xbox Cloud Gaming is unwavering, our goal is to enable people to play the games they want, on the devices they want, anywhere they want. As announced last year, we’ve been working on a game-streaming device, codename Keystone, that could be connected to any TV or monitor without the need for a console," a Microsoft spokesperson stated.

"As part of any technical journey, we are constantly evaluating our efforts, reviewing our learnings, and ensuring we are bringing value to our customers. We have made the decision to pivot away from the current iteration of the Keystone device. We will take our learnings and refocus our efforts on a new approach that will allow us to deliver Xbox Cloud Gaming to more players around the world in the future.” 

From what we understand, Keystone has been in development for a couple of years, with Microsoft continuing to finalize the product's featureset.

To speculate, Keystone could eventually run some sort of slimmed-down Windows or Xbox OS, given that "Keystone" originally appeared in an OS list alongside the different Xbox platforms like "ERA" and "GameOS." Utilizing Windows instead of alternatives like Android would allow Microsoft to offer its own streaming media apps like Microsoft Movies & TV. Although, using Android OSP would potentially be a quicker route to market, leaning on apps like Netflix, and perhaps Spotify.

The exact timeline for Keystone remains unclear, but I wouldn't expect to see it any time soon — particularly not at the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase coming up on June 12.
