Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams (Director's Cut) | Tried

Alright! I think I made it to the end of the gamepass games that I tried (and attempted to finish) before my gamepass expired in 2020 😂. It only took me a year (and a half) 😂This is the Director's Edition of Giana Sisters (which I always expect to be spelled as Gianna but anyway...)Plot (from wikipedia):Maria is abducted to the Dream World, where the wicked dragon Gurglewocky holds her prisoner.

De Blob | Tried

Tried in gamepass in May 2020This seemed like an interesting game - at least in premise. You arrive in a city that's just totally gray and devoid of any color, and you bounce around and make things more colorful.  In premise, it seems like a   nice game to get into a zen zone and just enjoy it, but in May 2020 I was working on finishing up my dissertation (or was I done?) and I

Rise and Shine | Done

Alright.  Here is another review from back when I had gamepass and I tried to play as much as I could 🤣.  I think that my general review of Rise and Shine is that THIS. GAME. IS. PUNISHING.😬😩😵Rise and Shine is an action platformer. In this game you are on Gamearth (basically a planet where everything is a game reference from our world). Gamearth was once a peaceful planet that

GoNNER - BLÜEBERRY Edition | tried

I guess there are more games that I tried and completely forgot about! Thanks to my drafts in Blogger I didn't totally forget 😂. Anyway, another gamepass game tried while I had access to it.  There really isn't much to write about this game.  I think I probably sent about 90 minutes on it and it wasn't very much to my liking. I did like the visuals, but I kept finding myself in a "WTF

World War Z | tried

Another "tried" review from my gamepass days. This one from April 2020.  I think this may be the last one!Anyway, I am a fan of FPS games, and of the zombie genre, so I had high hopes for this game.  It was a fairly fun game, but really low on replayability IMO.  The game teams you up with four other people and you can choose your location (see story summaries from Wikipedia).

Streets of Rage 4 | Done

Catching up on my quick thoughts on games that I played a long time ago (or so it seems!).  This one was completed on 5/31/2020 and it was a game that I had access to on GamepassThe game is a classic side-scrolling beat-em-up, similar to other titles like Double Dragon, Final Fight, and of course, the classic Streets of Rage.  Having played this game, I think I like Streets of Rage better

Creature in the Well | Tried

This is one from April 2020. I know, it was a long time ago (or so it feels), but I wanted to try this out before my gamepass subscription ended.  On the one hand, I wish I had gotten the Gold renewal when it was dirt-cheap (and then done the $1 gamepass lifehack), but it's been so busy this past year I don't think I would have had much of an opportunity to try anything that came out on gamepass.Anyway,

Double Dragon Neon | Tried

When Double Dragon Neon came out on gamepass, I thought I'd give it a try. When I was a kid, I rather enjoyed playing double dragon on my monochrome Gameboy, and it always seemed like a fun game - even though I never think I beat the original.  Since it was practically free to try on my Xbox, I thought: why not?On the surface the game seems like a nice reboot of the original.  Updated graphics,
