    The Witness

    I just don't get why people watch game streams - why watch when you could do it yourself? I've seen my kids watch streams, and they just look like the most inane waste of time. Or at least, that was the case until I tried this one out yesterday morning, and now I'm nearly finished with part 6. I love the enthusiasm for the puzzles in general, but especially his joyful appreciation when a puzzle blows his mind with its design - it's such a great way to re-experience the game, and if anything it makes me appreciate it even more than I did when I played it myself. Anyway part 7 is tonight and I'm thinking of watching live so I can type "BEAM" in the chat and I don't know who I am any more.

    I remember the 3D Freescape games on the C64, they would have an on-screen progress bar that filled up up between frames.

    Yeah, I remember playing a previous game in the series, Spintires - found it genuinely stressful, reminded me of getting my own car IRL stuck in mud and struggling to get free. I'm sure its accurate, but very much Not For Me.

    Not sure, sorry - I can tell you I bought 12 codes a few weeks ago, and 4 today, they all worked ok.

    @bradigor - understand the whole saving thing, just wanted to make sure you saw this which was posted earlier, 7-day GP Ultimate codes: https://www.eneba.com/gb/xbox-xbox-game-pass-ultimate-7-days-subscription-xbox-one-windows-10-xbox-live-key-global If you buy 4 of these at once, you get 4 weeks of GP Ultimate for £3.10 (scroll down to select the cheapest price). Each code will just extend your subscription a week, so you don't need to let your membership lapse or save for an initial outlay. I used them earlier today, and can confirm the codes work on UK accounts.

    Yeah, there's nothing stopping you doing that, but my worry would be if they had some kind of expiry date or if MS rescinds them - I assume they were harvested from some product promotion.

    If anyone needs to top up their Ultimate subscription, here's a slightly tedious way to do it for £3.95 / 28 days: https://www.eneba.com/us/xbox-xbox-game-pass-ultimate-4-x-7-days-subscription-xbox-one-windows-10-xbox-live-key-global It's delivered as 4 separate codes you need to redeem one at a time. I have a UK account and these worked for me, I've just added 12 weeks to the end of my subscription. The price is in Euros and they cheekily add on a service fee for PayPal, but £3.95 is what my card was charged (though of course this will vary a bit based on your credit card terms for currency conversion).

    Disco Elysium

    I would advise against this - it's been a while since I played, but I'm pretty sure there are dialogue options which have in-game consequences.
  9. Apparently pressures caused by the pandemic changed the finale quite a lot, e.g. https://www.slashfilm.com/wandavision-finale-matt-shakman-cut-storylines/

    Xbox Game Pass

    The EA Play stuff took a while to turn up in my app as well. Oddly, the Xbox app doesn't show all the available games you can get - in the EA Desktop app, it shows 132 games included on the EA Play tier. The Xbox app seems to be mostly missing the fairly decent (if old-ish) collection of indie games on there.
  11. That reminds me, I enjoyed this a lot:

    Is this a recent thing, or is it your first time with PC Game Pass? If it's the latter, I think it needs a certain Windows update before it will work properly - I remember having to find a way to force a particular update through. But if you've had it working ok before, that won't be it.
  13. I thought this was interesting: a well-written and highly critical review of the game, questioning whether Cyberpunk is actually cyberpunk. https://www.quartertothree.com/fp/2020/12/15/looking-for-the-cyberpunk-in-cyberpunk-2077/
  14. Really enjoying this so far - just got to Act 2, playing on a reasonably good PC. But I think I'm going to leave it there for a few months... I've seen dozens of glitches so far (no crashes yet though), and I do think it will be worth the wait to experience the rest of the game when it's in a better state.
