Game Pass April 2022 Review – A Lot of Story games

I’m Kinglink and it’s April, so it’s time to look at the Game Pass April 2022 Review. 

Let me start by saying these images are a bit of a lie, or at the very least incomplete. These are the official list of games coming out from Microsoft. The problem is it doesn’t show the full number of games we’re going to be talking about, since they don’t appear on the images. Which includes the first title that’s going to be shown. 

I’m torn on this. Getting more games is of course better, but the games that appear as a surprise make it hard to track what’s out on the service and what’s coming up. Though the fact that it means you have more of a reason to check out this video and the rest of my catalog is good for me at least. Still, the choices are great this month, though they do seem to focus on a certain type of game. 

The response last month was positive so we’ll be continuing with a nice audio selection at the beginning of every game, hope you enjoy it. 

Finally, the rules, I spend an evening with every game on this list, sometimes more than one, and now I’m here to tell you what I think of them, and who should check them out. Let’s get started with the game on the screen and a surprise release.

Humble Choice April 2022 Review – Ninjas, the 1950s and Nintendo games

I’m Kinglink and it’s time for the Humble Choice April 2022 Review. 

This year is kind of racing past. but we’re here with the fourth bundle and for the third time, I will say that I think Humble delivered. It’s not a perfect bundle but there’s quite a bit here. Once again we only have eight titles. 

As always I check out each game for an hour and now I’m ready to tell you what I think and who is going to enjoy them. I will mention one thing. The Naruto game in this list is not available for the Asian Pacific market. Instead, you get a game called Space Accident. I won’t be reviewing but I’ll discuss that more later. That is a pretty major change, and I wanted to call it out, so if you’re not sure, check the list of games before buying the bundle. 

I’m sure you’ll notice some other changes with the video.  Let me know what you think.

With all of that out of the way let’s talk about what there is in the bundle. Starting with

Game Pass March 2022 Review – Smaller selection, bigger titles

I’m Kinglink and it’s the second week of March so here’s the March 2022 Game Pass Review. 

This month we have a smaller selection, but there are a couple of massive titles here which are worthy of your attention, at the same time, there is some variety between the Xbox and PC, as well as some cloud-only titles.  There were also a couple of surprise releases not on these lists. 

I’ve already reviewed the Mass Effect Legendary Edition, not once but twice this year already, and it’s only March, it’s the best way to play that series.  However, it’s not radically new, so if you have played previously, it’s just the standard game.    Lawn Mowing Simulator has been delayed for the Xbox One so that is incorrect, but I reviewed it recently, and I enjoyed it as a simulator.  Finally, I don’t have anything to say about Super Mega Baseball 3, it was released 2 years ago already, but I did work on a competitor to it, and haven’t played it so we’ll leave that there. 

But as normal I play all the titles on PC, and I’ll tell you what I think after a few hours of each, how the game is, who is it for, and who will enjoy them.  I’m also going to add in a little audio from the games to give you a flavor of them, it’s an experiment so let’s see how it goes.

Let’s just get started so you can see how it works, and we’ll start with what I thought was the biggest game this month…

Humble Choice March 2022 Review – A Major lineup

I’m Kinglink and it’s time for the Humble Choice March 2022 Review.

This month we once again have 8 titles, and shockingly, Humble might actually have a solid month.  Though there is one big asterisk, right below the Mass Effect title, which we will talk about later.  However the lineup is good, so let’s see how the games are. 

As always I play each game for an hour and will tell you what I think of them, if you should check them out and who might enjoy them.

Game Pass February 2022 Review – A packed month, but not a strong one.

I’m Kinglink and it’s near the end of February.  I know it’s late, but let’s do the Game Pass February 2022 review.  

We have seventeen titles this month including a brand new platform.  Two of these games came on Ubisoft connect.   I believe you only get the two games right now, and you have to use their launcher, but if that’s a deal-breaker, there are enough other games to look at..  Now there were some issues this month and I’ll talk about that at the end but, in general, it’s another large month with tons of games.  

Technically Game Pass also included Peggle Nights and Battlefield Bad Company 2, this month on Ea Play.  Those games are over a decade old, I mean I enjoyed Peggle a decade and a half ago, and Battlefield Bad Company 2 is popular, that’s all the coverage they deserve. 

So as always, I’ve played around three to four hours on each title and I’ll tell you what I think. Let’s get started with a throwback but maybe a remaster?  I don’t know.

Humble Choice February 2022 Choice – Returning with a vengeance!

I’m Kinglink and it’s the first week of February, so it’s time for the Humble Choice February 2022 Review. 

There have been some changes to Humble this month but before diving into them, let’s go over the games first.  As a rule, I have played each game for an hour on stream and now can tell you all about them, who might enjoy them, and what to expect.  It’s a short month with 28 days, so let’s just get started because time is running out.

Game Pass January 2022 Review – Starting the year with amazing indies

I’m Kinglink and it’s a couple of weeks into the new year so it’s time for the Game Pass January 2022 video.  2022, 2021… Ugh, not this again.  2022.. Ok, let’s do it. 

This month we had 19 titles released, and while it’s a smaller month than December, I mean what month is going to live up to Halo Infinite, it’s still packed with games, and I found many more of the titles interesting and completed quite a few already. 

At the same time there was massive news last week that may change Game Pass, but before we get there, let’s focus on this month first. We’ll start with…

The Best of My 2021. Which games are worth playing from last year

I’m Kinglink and it’s the end of 2021… or rather the beginning of 2022, but that’s the perfect time to discuss the best of last year. 

I make a lot of Youtube videos for everyone to watch, and I hope people are enjoying them. And from the number of likes, I think that’s what happening, remember to click it.  Though every time I get to this point of the year, I realize this video is more for me.  It’s a chance for me to take stock of everything I’ve played, become reflexive and just think about what I enjoyed the most or want other people to play.  In the past, I’ve talked about Yakuza, Outer Wilds, and Disco Elysium, and this year I’m going to give it another go. 

I obviously haven’t played every game that came out last year, though I did play 295 games, that’s not even counting games I emulated.  And yes, I do keep track of this stuff.  So I did well, though not every one of those games came out in the last twelve months either, and that’s just something I’m ok with.  I do what I can with the time I have.

I’m Kinglink and Happy New Year, which means it’s time for the Humble Choice January 2022 review. Where does the time go? 

A new year, a new bundle, and the same old me, though a little under the weather. This month we return to the 10 game lineup and there are a lot of interesting choices and discussions to be had, but in case you’re new I check out each game for at least an hour, and I’m ready to tell you what I think about this month’s offerings. We’re going to start with the game I was the most excited about. That is…

Game Pass December 2021 Review Part 2 – Finishing 2021 with a few more games

I’m Kinglink and it’s time for the Game Pass December 2021 Review Part 2.  

If you haven’t seen part 1, you can check the description, I’ll put a link there.  There were 13 lovely games to discuss. I also talked about Game Pass dropping Xbox Game Pass for PC, but as I said, I mostly cover all the Game Pass games, and again, Among Us is great with friends.  With that being said there are still 13 games to discuss and discover this month. 

Before I begin, just a quick reminder, I now have a Discord Server, if you’re interested, check the link in the description or the pinned comment.  Let’s get on with the games.
