Its infuriating that it let me play a couple of days because I'm a wee bit hooked on Spire, though I'm not sure on the longevity of the mechanics.

So I installed the super early beta windows patch. And my PC wouldn’t boot. Got it restored to before the patch and BOOM it’s working again!

Reinstalled Spire since I uninstalled it when it wouldn’t launch to try a reinstall. Guess what? Apparently XBox app games uninstall their save games when you uninstall them! :cry:

yep - before the recent updates my PC booted no problem, now its going back to Win'95 boot up times. From the time I switch it on to the time windows finishes booting we are talking 2 minutes and you kind to have to leave it alone. Utterly bizarre O/S that only works well when you do you a fresh install and has the latest specs.

I've got to say I've had no issues with this at alll, perhaps I've been very lucky. I'm not sure how I feel about it though - I find myself less commited to games when I know I haven't 'Paid' for them and discarding them much quicker than I perhaps would normally.

These are strange times we are living in where my time is more valuable than anything else.

Kind of obvious what someone would pick there. Realistically i think a game pass style subscription on 200ish titles and others (newer?) are there to buy but if you buy you get a launcher on your PC where you can download and play locally too.

I updates the sub to Ultimate and downloaded Trackmania on the XBO. OMG this game is great fun especially when I can compete with my 5 year old son. Well done Ubisoft.
