I've just played through the first couple of levels and it seems like a good purchase so far. And it's also highlighting just how unfit I am too :)

I really liked Little Nightmares.

Did the DLC come with it?

Yes, it's excellent, and you need to play it soon after the original (it's only a few hours long) or you may not get the significance.

I was not aware of its existence. Now I am excited, but will probably wait a bit.

Catching up on a couple of things

<12.79> Hotshot Racing, which I would have been better off spending on a month's Game Pass instead, as both Hotshot and Bloodstained are included on that at the moment. So to play Bloodstained, <7.99> one month of Game Pass.

Couple of grumbles - the revised Xbox dashboard really pushes Game Pass Ultimate; finding the basic Game Pass was fiddlier than it ought to be. Also, Bloodstained has already crashed out completely once so far, which doesn't fill me with confidence.

I've only for 8GB in my PC and I've always wondered whether it's making much difference. It's a relatively vintage spec in general though (older i5 and GTX 1060) so possibly the RAM isn't causing any kind of bottleneck.

Easiest way to check is have task manager open while you play a game and see if the RAM is used up to 100%. Likely in your system the CPU is the bottleneck. I have an older i5 (4th Gen) and a 1060 and the GPU is often waiting for the CPU in more complex games. MS flight sim being the most recent good example

Submerged (Xbox One) <1.59>

Not a bad little game so far; a kind of child-friendly Tomb Raider thing with lots of climbing but no combat and, as far as i'm aware, no way to die. So it's just gentle exploration with a boat and telescope looking for new buildings to climb. Usual price is £15.99, so it's a decent discount at the moment.
