    Windjammers 2 coming to GP day one on Jan 20th. 

     

    New Sniper Elite day one as well. 

     

    Windjammers is fucking amazing

     

     

    :omg:

     

    Awesome news. When I saw they were releasing another Sniper Elite I thought, wouldn't it be great if it came to Game Pass on day one. This service just keeps on giving. 

  2. Today was not a good day start playing this again. It seems like the latest patch has made many things worse for me. Slow loading, non responsive controller, several crashes/lockups, one even required a full power cycle of the XSX.

     

    Bug whack-a-mole.

     

    😭

    Good price and money going to a good cause at Full Circle Brew Co - 50% off select 24can cases with £5 going towards Womens Street Watch Newcastle.

    Thanks.

     

    Also placed an order for 24 cans of Disco Stars and got an additional 10% off for being my first order with them and putting my email address on the mailing list. 

  4. I've just picked this up for the PS5 and I can't believe there isn't an option to custom configure the controls at all. Absolutely shocking. :quote:

     

    Thankfully with the PS5 accessibility settings I can swap the buttons and sticks around but it's not ideal as it's a system wide change.

    Probably under accessibility in options for adjusting or - you know - git gud.

    I didn't see any options to adjust it. Please someone correct me if I'm wrong and I missed the setting. 

     

    Also it's unlikely I'll git gud. The aim assist on the earlier Halo(s) is what made it feel so good to play on a controller.

    Sounds odd, anyone/where else reporting it?

     

    I'm playing on PC/OLED so not got it on (I think) as Windows HDR is bobbins usually.

    I can't find any other reports at the moment. I'll do a full restart on the series x and see if it persists.

    Thought I’d try Omno but it seems to be in 30fps. Sorry lads, not in 2021. Too much other stuff to put up with that shit. 

    It's not 30fps. I think the first opening vista really tanks the frame rate. There's a setting to turn off v-sync. I turned off the setting and for the most part on the series X the frame rate holds up. I would stay with it as it's a really beautiful game.

  8. With the shape of the console and the majority of people being right handed it feels wrong to insert the disc with the shiny side to the right when the PS5 is vertical. I got it wrong the first time and a few times after when under the influence of alcohol. In my opinion it's a terrible design. But I'm left handed so I'm probably not right. 🤪

    I have explained to them that I have the official Xbox headset that uses the exact same protocol and doesn't suffer any interference at all, but they don't seem to care. First and last time I buy anything from them. It's genuinely one of the worst customer service experiences I have ever had. I expected so much more from a premium brand. 

    The official Xbox wireless headset isn't free from interference and disconnects, well not in my experience of them. I get sound cut outs quite often with mine. Unless my headset is broke too?  

     

    Anyhow good luck getting it sorted out, as said you would have expected more from a premium brand.

  10. I persevered through to completion of this over the weekend. I stayed for the fantastic visuals and soundtrack. Some of the core gameplay was pretty good but it got repetitive. I personally encountered many difficulty spikes. Probably down to me not understanding the upgrade mechanics of the character and weapons. I didn't even know I could upgrade weapons until I was coming up to about two thirds through the game. This caused me to die many times on several boss encounters and area defence tasks. I even got the achievement for dying many times and it's a big number of deaths for that one. The final challenge was an absolute pain which also resulted in many deaths, at one point I was going to drop it all, but I'm a stubborn chap and I spent about 2/3 hours getting through it.  

     

    I ended up with about 700 achievement points in the end, but I'm unlikely to attempt to pick up the rest.

     

    To summarise.

     

    The Good.

    Fantastic setting and visuals.

    Excellent soundtrack.

    Rich world with loads going on, maybe more visually than actual interactions.

    The Average.

    Core gameplay was fun but got a bit repetitive by the end.

    The Bad.

    Difficulty spikes. (For me, but I'm probably just crap.)

    Dodgy pop in of textures when using the lifts and the quick travel methods.

    Too much trekking around with a slow character run speed. 

    Horrible map, it barely helped at all.

    Bad UI with small text and unintuitive/inconsistent controls. (The amount of times I wanted to scroll the map and swapped tabs was stupid. It never sunk into my brain to not press the left stick).

    The Ugly.

    Many bugs.

    Several crashes.

    Weird sound issues when in upgrade shops. (I'm not sure if that's by design but it sounded like spaceships/hovercars flying around when I was browsing items.)

    Slow loading.

    Inconsistent saving. Sometimes checkpoints would set me back way too far after death. 

    A couple of times it completely killed off the Xbox guide.

     

    I'm still hoping for a sequel. :P

    It didn't used to be like that it's the new patch. And it's horrible.

    Darn. I'm going to see if forcing the X to be in just 1080p mode helps. 

  12. Is there any resolution to the horrible screen tearing on the Series X version of this? My daughter is currently playing the PoTC content and the screen tearing is horrendous. It's running at 4k HDR and it's connected to a LG B6 OLED. I have thought it would have able to run at a locked 60 fps on the Series X?

    After the first finish? Fuck knows what I’m missing then as I definitely cleared out every room in 1 & 2, 90% of 3. I still can’t open the golden shielded doors mind you so maybe that’s what im missing. I’ll blitz through the second half of the game and see what’s what.

    Yes you need to have seen the credits roll once before they start to appear.

     

    I don't think they are guaranteed to appear? I found mine in Biome 1 in an area that featured a blue orb that created a platform after shooting it.

     

    In Biome 2 I'm pretty sure it was in an area that you wouldn't be able to cross without a later suit upgrade.

     

    I don't think they are locked behind areas that require a key or the golden shield breaking thing.
