Game Pass November 2022 Review – 17 Hits and Misses

I’m Kinglink and it’s almost turkey day here in America, so it’s time for the Game Pass November 2022 Review.  

This one is a bit late but, as you’ll see in the lists of games, I wanted to cover Pentiment and that came out on the 15th.  The good news is I have that and many others, so we talk about all of these titles, and even give a hint of what’s coming up, but that’s for later. 

Normally I play only the PC games, but give me a moment here, and let me call out Vampire Survivors, I’ve covered it previously on the series, and I remember I said you should buy it even if it’s on Game Pass.  It’s 5 dollars on Xbox and I still believe that it’s worth it.  It’s a lot of fun, so console gamers, you have the chance, check that game out, I will guarantee you’ll enjoy it, and good luck hunting me down if you don’t. 

This month I haven’t played all of these games as much.  While I do sit down with these titles for a night, quite a few of them are games I’ve played previously, or stopped for various reasons, we’ll get into the why when applicable, but I have had some great experiences, let’s start with what’s on the screen, perhaps the biggest release of the month.

Game Pass October 2022 Review – Impressive games and an important update

I’m Kinglink and it’s the middle of October so it’s time for the Game Pass October 2022 review.

I’m back once again with 16 titles new to Game Pass with a focus on PC.  I’ve spent a night, about three to four hours on almost every game and now am ready to talk about it, what’s good, what’s bad, and who will like each title. 

I am putting this video out before Plague Tale Requiem, and I really want to cover that game, but then this video would come out later than I wanted.  Don’t worry I’ll get it next month, and I have a good feeling that it’ll be another high-quality title. 

I do have some news for the channel and this series, but I’m going to save that for the end so we can focus on what’s important here.  

We’re going to start with a familiar title for this channel.   It’s a game I already have talked about this month, so let’s roll back time and go over it once more.

What’s “new” on Game Pass August 2022 – Can I really call these new?

I’m Kinglink and it’s time to talk about What’s New on Game Pass for August 2022. 

I’ll talk about the name change at the end but don’t worry this is still the same coverage you have come to love. 

If you’re new, I cover the PC version of Gamepass which is everything you see in these images except for Torment: Tides of Elysium, but I will say that’s a fantastic RPG with a text-heavy design. I think Disco Elysium does that style of the game better, but that’s not to say Torment isn’t worth checking out as well. 

Oh, I guess I’m going to cover all of them. I’ve played every game this month for a night, whatever that means, and now I’ll tell you how they play, who will like them, and if you should check them out. Let’s get started with this game on the screen.

Game Pass July 2022 Review – A lot of variety, but what about quality?

I’m Kinglink And it’s time for the Game Pass July 2022 Review. 

There are 19 titles this month to talk about, and I’ll cover most of them, you’ll understand when we get there.  However, this is a month that has some titles in unique categories, and some titles for the younger gamers.  Yeah, there’s Peppa Pig that the internet is making jokes about.

At the same time, I actually found some unique games, including the one on the screen, and this is absolutely a month for people who want something different than the typical big-budget shooter that is laden with microtransactions, though don’t worry though, we have one of those as well. 

Like always, I played each game for a night and now I’m here to tell you what worked, and what you can skip.    Let’s get started with…

I’m Kinglink and it’s the beginning of May so it’s time for the Humble Choice May 2022 Review

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 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.

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.

Humble Choice December 2021 Review – Ending the year with style

I’m Kinglink and it’s the end of the year, which means it’s the Humble Choice December 2021 Review. 

It’s been a great year, and we’re ending on a massive bundle, but before we get into that, I just want to say two personal things.   First, I broke 3000 subscribers and I’m staggered, so I want to thank all of you for subscribing from the bottom of my heart.  I quite literally couldn’t hit that goal without any of your support. 

Second,  I’ve created a discord server. It’s called The Roundtable, and if you’re interested check the description, or possibly the pinned comment, and let’s get that server going.  I’ll talk more about it at the end but I wanted to give everyone a heads up.
