Game Pass reminded me of a game I’ve wanted to play since December

Well, Tobi, didn't you want to play the chorus?

Game Pass is getting a little scary for me. Not only do games appear there with an almost frightening regularity that I would have liked to catch up on anyway, but now the service also acts as a kind of reminder for me.

I put some titles on my internal to-do list, but then simply forgot about them over the months – or even years. Fishlab Games’ Chorus is just such an example. I took a closer look at it more than two years ago at a preview event and was fascinated by the space ball even then.

Tobias Veltin has been an editor at GamePro since 2009. His favorite genres are shooters and racing games, and apart from video games, games are his great passion. He loves soccer and billiards and is constantly expanding his board game collection. Incidentally, it has nothing to do with the beer brand of the same name. Unfortunately.

First noted – and then forgotten

When the game came out in December 2022, Dennis was pretty excited about Chorus in his review, confirming pretty much all the hopes I had for Chorus. But because I was on the go a lot in Halo Infinite at the time, I put the title on my list just mentioned. And then forget him.

Now, a few days ago, while scrolling through the Game Pass overview on the Xbox dashboard, my eyes caught on the Chorus tile. And the memory shot through my brain like a bolt of lightning. Seconds later I started the download and I’m already looking forward to throwing myself into space over the weekend.

Why I really wanted to play chorus – and maybe you should too

I’m a big fan of vintage and linear space ballers like Star Wars Rogue Squadron or Lylat Wars, both of which made my N64 glow. A ship, a few weapons and umpteen enemies in the darkness of space – that’s all I needed to be happy.

Chorus promises me exactly that. Space action without a lot of frills including various possibilities to upgrade my ship, which should then provide a certain long-term motivation. There is also a story about pilot Nara and her spaceship Forsaken, which according to Dennis is said to be a bit confused, but which speaks to me in a strange way with Nara’s dark sectarian past.

Since the whole thing should also be presented technically, Chorus should be a game that I should like all around. And if you’ve also celebrated the games I mentioned in the past, you should probably check out Chorus as well. Maybe you’ll get a reminder from Game Pass too.

Have you already played chorus and can you understand my anticipation?
