You're a pig farmer in Kansas. It's October. Cold, crisp mornings are the norm, and you have decided that you're no longer okay with letting the mob use your pigs to dispose of bodies. When your old friend - a hitman - arrives with his assistant to deliver another body, you finally screw up the courage to tell them that you're done.

Grab the xBox games while you can - free (in perpetuity) games with Gold is disappearing for GamePass Core as xBox Live! Gold is transitioned (and enshittified):
Today, we’re continuing our commitment to give players more choice and value by introducing Xbox Game Pass Core, launching on September 14. Game Pass Core is the evolution of Xbox Live Gold. Game Pass Core will give players access to our advanced multiplayer network, a select collection of over 25 games to play with friends around the world, and exclusive member deals, all for $9.99 USD per month or $59.99 USD per year.
Black Lives definitely Matter Lorini!

Also: There are three ways to not tell the truth: lies, damned lies, and statistics.

The pricing seems... odd.

Apparently priced around whatever Playstation is (has been?) doing?
The pricing of the service is somewhat curious, however. At 10 bucks a month, the full Xbox Game Pass on console is a mere dollar extra. It’s hard to imagine why someone would choose not to just spend the extra dollar and get access to a far larger game library that’s abundantly added to every month. It means Microsoft is now matching PlayStation’s Plus Essential service, which is the same price, with a similar library of games, except Sony’s version still offers a couple of free games every month to subscribers. What a curious move.

If you read the full announcement from Microsoft, it also says that Core is $9.99/month, or you can subscribe for a full year for $59.99. If you pay annually, it will only cost you $5/month.

I ended up cancelling all together. The increase of price and the lack of time just made it easy to do.

Yeah, I canceled a few months ago. I wasn't getting enough out of it for what I was paying, especially as they've been skewing everything toward the PS5, which I also can't afford. Well, technically I canceled my annual renewal, so I still have access for a couple of months.
