Gears 5 now playable for Game Pass Ultimate subscribers

By Blackwalt - Posted on 06 September 2019

Other plebs will have to wait until September 10th

So yesterday Coxxorz texted me to say that once of his coworkers mentioned that Gears of War 5 was out tomorrow and that he (Coxxorz) may have to call in sick.

Then he sent a follow up text that he could only find September 10th as the official launch date.

I then told him about the early access for Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. Following up by letting him know I had already pre-downloaded it and with his reminder was all prepared to play tomorrow!

Very little of his response made it through my phone's profanity filter...

J.H. Putman, Rolly C's Middle School is closing for good

It stayed open for Rolly's Cohort to finish and his Grade Eight, of 2019, will be the last to graduate.

I am entertained by the idea of returning from Greece (in real life) so that I can return to Greece (virtually).

Of course, tomorrow is technically an all day travel day so anything may still happen

After three separate flights to get back to Ottawa it is possible that I won't even manage to turn on my Xbox, let alone install Assassin's Creed Odyssey.
