    Fable Anniversary is one of my favorite remakes of any game, ever. Glad to see it made even more available!

    For my part I'd say it's really the only game worth playing in the series. The sequels were such generic fantasy material and added just a couple shallow features each. Obviously Molyneux over-promised and under-delivered with every single one of them.

    Basically, yeah. Only on Android phones and tablets as of now, but it’s expected to roll out for PC later this year. I think that’s in beta right now, actually.

    Thanks. I thought it was named xCloud, or something.
    For mobile devices only at the moment, hm? They are smart, indeed.
    I wonder why MLB is available in Cloud and console but not the demanding Phogs!
    I'd love to know the reasoning behind these choices.

    I bought a year worth of game pass for $90 I haven't activated yet. I used to praise game pass for being the best gaming subscription opposing to PS Now (it still is) but the delisting games left a bad taste in my mouth. This is good if you're going to play daily and beat the game in a month but if you're like me and procrastinate they'll delist the game before you beat it.

    Gamepass is still good don't get me wrong but I have all the last gen consoles and I have subscriptions all except my Xbox. (Sony robbed me for 2 years because I didn't take my credit card off file but I'll rather pick PS Plus because I still keep my games aslong as I subscripe to them. Also they are giving away PS5 games aswell so Sony have been improving.

    I still rather own the game versus leasing.

    Yeah it was called xCloud until recently when they decided to consolidate it all under the Game Pass banner (which seems a lot clearer, to me anyway).

    Wow, they really are hellbent on keeping Fable 2 as far away from PC as possible.

    Technically no streaming refers to playing a game media remotely that's installed on a machine you own while cloud gaming refers to playing a game media remotely without actually needing to purchase the hardware required to run it
    Xbox game pass is available for Xbox Android and PC with a slightly different selection of games offered in all three... Also they have a web version in beta atm that should be compatible with iOS mac Linux chrome and just about anything else with a modern web browser

    Edit: what's more the xbox and pc versions allow you to download select titles to your machine so they can be played without lag

    because they need mlb now that it's console exclusively with sony is over ... Was the other game you refer to console exclusive as well?

    You see the reasoning behind the need is the sony microsoft feud ... Said feud is also the reason why Sony gave the ff7 remake away for ps+ as its console exclusively is nearly up and they want to poop on xbox game sales
