What is Xbox Game Pass? Is it included in Xbox Live Gold? How similar is it to PS Now? And the most important thing, can I get it for PC?

Well, the answers to that is simple, let me explain what is Xbox Game Pass

Xbox Game Pass is a service that will be available to Xbox One users sometime later this Spring, which cost US$9.99 and allows you to play Xbox One/Xbox 360 games on your Xbox One and no, it’s not included in your already paid for Xbox Live Gold.

Xbox Live Gold has bunch of services, like dedicated servers to Xbox Live & 4 Free Games every month.

You might be thinking “Wait, this sounds like Sony’s PlayStation Now” and that’s what I thought first too but then my questions were answered. You don’t stream the game from their server (OMG YES!) but instead you download the game directly  into your Xbox One, so it’s perfect connection  because the game is IN your console.

Before I explain more about the service, PC gamers, I’m sorry but the service is only available on Xbox One and not on PC (Maybe in the future)

Xbox Game Pass also gives you discount on the game that’s available on the service so that you can own the game forever, you might wanna do that too because the games will be under the same rotation style of Netflix.

That’s right, the games are all in rotation that come and go, so you can consider it a trial with a way longer time length.

That’s pretty much it but if you are a Xbox Live Gold member when it comes out, you will have priority access to the service before anyone else. If you are part of the Preview Alpha (Like me!) you can access it today!

What do you think of the service? Let us know in the comments below!

Pokemon Go is Going Again?

So Pokemon Go died out in 2016 as the developers Niantic decided to not release the 2nd Generation of Pokemon or Legendary battles as quick as player would’ve wanted.

But it seems like Niantic finally wants to release some 2nd Generation pokemons out into the wild!

On their website, they post

Trainers,

Pokémon GO is in the process of being updated to version 0.57.2 for Android and 1.27.2 for iOS devices. Below are some release notes and comments from our development team.

  • Over 80 additional Pokémon originally discovered in the Johto region can be caught.
  • Gender-specific variations of select Pokémon can be caught.
  • Added new encounter mechanics.
  • Added Poké Ball and Berry selection carousels to the encounter screen.
  • Added two new Berries.
  • Added new avatar outfit and accessory options.
  • Added new night-mode map and encounter music.
  • Added bonus Candies for catching Evolved Pokémon.
  • Implemented Apple Watch connection stability improvement.
  • Various bug fixes.
  • Minor text fixes.

Including that, also a trailer for then Gen 2 pokemons!

Why Niantic took this long to release Gen 2 pokemons is really up in the air, most likely it’s got to do with just coding 80 different pokemons and getting it all right……I think but in the end of the day, it’s finally here

I think it might be the recovery that Niantic and Nintendo needed for the Pokemon Go app
