Tis the season…to further quarantine oneself from the madness of the silly season, as all hell is likely to break loose. Muay Thai matches in shopping malls with the last bottle of festive Sriracha sauce on sale, roads clogged with people on vacation, mountains filled with amateur climbers, business as usual.

For those of you planning to avoid the insanity, good news! Microsoft has a few ace offerings being added to its Game Pass service, a smattering of games that will consume your hours and finally allow you to fuse with your chair in an unholy union of fibers and butt.


The main event announcement is that Remedy Entertainment’s excellent Control is arriving on December 3, along with a number of other games. Here’s the full list:

“Control is an intriguing, fascinating experience,” Geoff Dam: Fight for New York said in his review last year . “The third-person action, while slick and elegant, is perhaps a little pedestrian – but the completely bonkers story and the rewarding sense of exploration and discovery help cement Control as one of Remedy’s best games.”
