Vampire Survivors has consistently ranked as the most popular game on Steam Deck because it’s so much fun. As tens of thousands of adversaries encroach the screen, your character automatically shoots weapons. In the heat of battle, all you have control over is how the character moves and what weapons and items they have equipped (there are persistent powerups you can unlock as well). It’s one of those games that you really have to play to appreciate, but it will soon be much simpler for more people to give it a try.

For November 10, Vampire Survivors will launch on Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X, and it will also be accessible through Xbox Game Pass. This will significantly lower the entry barrier even though it just costs $5.

It’s not a great surprise that Microsoft is adding one of the biggest breakthrough hits of this year to Xbox Game Pass. PC Game Pass subscribers already have access to Vampire Survivors.

Return to Monkey Island will also be available this month on Xbox platforms and Game Pass. In September, the adventure series’ rebirth debuted on PC and Switch. On November 8th, it will be accessible via Xbox, PC Game Pass, and Xbox Cloud Gaming.

On the same day, the console version of Football Manager 2023 will be released on PC, consoles, and the cloud. The game’s complete PC version will also be available on Game Pass at that time. On the other hand, on November 8th, Football Manager 2022 and Football Manager 2022 Xbox Edition will be removed from Game Pass.

Members of Game Pass have a lot more to look forward to this month. On November 3rd, a 2D metroidvania game called Ghost Song will be released for the cloud, consoles, and PC. In it, you explore a far-off moon. On November 15, Obsidian’s Pentiment, one of the last first-party Xbox exclusives for this year, will be released on all three systems. On the same day, Somerville, from a studio Dino Patti, executive producer of Inside and Limbo, cofounded, will make its premiere.

The whole seasons of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier and The Walking Dead: Michonne are currently available on PC Game Pass. The Legend of Tianding, a side-scrolling beat’em-up, has recently arrived on PC, Xbox, and the cloud.

On November 8th, the winter update for Halo Infinite will be released. Along with new maps, a brand-new game mode, and (at long last) a mechanism to gain experience points solely by playing multiplayer games, it will finally add online campaign co-op and Forge mode to the game. Microsoft Flight Simulator 40th Anniversary Edition will be a free update starting on November 11. The additions include an actual airplane, gliders, and helicopters.

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.
