  1. Godamn Game Pass is wrecking my backlog. They have too many games at this point.

  2. Cities Skylines is such a massive game. I’ve put over 350 hours into it. So, while it’s nice that it’s coming to Game Pass, I’ll be adding it to my Steam account 100%.

    Now I understand why they released the Remastered version.

    Really relaxing and chill game to play. When doing something else you could watch your city grow and make some adjustments.

    Even if you’re not into managing games, it is worth trying.

  4. I hope they’ll add connecting cities. I’d love to build an entire world where cities are connected and you can create a large scale economy based the goods and services provided by each city.
