  1. GTA V is free until May 21st
  2. Just to balance some of the above. I've watched the new season over the weekend and absolutely loved it. Wasn't overly confusing like the last season and delivered a solid action romp that expanded the bigger picture with a nice rhythm of reveals and twists.
  3. I'm playing through Quantum Break at the moment, and the idea that you go off exploring to read people's emails really doesn't sit with the ongoing narrative. You have characters expecting you to walk and talk, or some emergent crisis and there you are moving around corners of rooms to find yellow icons. The game encourages you to do this by making it a means of powering up or to unlock/change events - but there you are whilst Beth or someone is saying quick we need to escape to save the world reading a historical document of how a monument was built or somesuch.
  4. Stereolab got their name from a test record for hifis on vanguard records that was "For Use In Aligning, Calibrating and Balancing Stereo Disc Playback Systems" An early pioneer of French disco on vanguard records was Which was famously sampled on It's taken many years to reunite DJ Premier with Guru but this landed last year
  5. Heavy Rain - Press X to Jason
  6. Well, what an utterly brilliant game this turned out to be. No idea what the title had to do with the previous game (I know about the name rights, but still feels a bizarre choice). Arkane certainly should be lauded for such a well rounded gameplay toybox and storyline. Clocked up over 40 hours and nowhere did any of that feel repetitive. It's a lesson to other games how no action or sidequest ever felt like a simple A-B fetch or collectaphon. Really impressed in how it left so many options open to the player as to how to progress and took, I guess, the Bioshock blueprint to another level. It was very satisfying to feel how empowered you become from a messy and unsure gluegun/wrench combat system to boss through areas towards the end, and still managed to raise the difficulty with further additions of Nightmare and Dahl's attempt to kill you. Wonderful stuff, highly recommended
  7. I swear Microsoft keep looking at whatever game I currently playing as to which ones they remove from Game Pass each month. First was Shadow of Tomb Raider, which I managed to complete, Deus Ex which I didn't so bought and now currently Prey....
  8. Well, series ended up finishing up quite disappointing after its early promise. Heavily suffered from its early reveal with a looooong stretch out of events meaning daft logic, linked narratives and a damp dragged out close. Kinda lost interest in how they covered up and cleared Terry's name. Had hints of some good drama wrung dry by unnecessary tension building. And as to the reveal during the credits....
  9. I did it! Found some kind sunlight bro. No-way I could have done it alone.
  10. I'm getting wiped by Lorian with his cheesing teleporting and never ending combo's, never mind getting to the 2nd phase of this boss battle To be honest, Ive found the bosses really difficult since Yhorm The Giant, which I consider where the game became weak because without googling I would never have known about using and how to use the Storm Ruler. Because I've come to the game so late on, I assume the options of having a online jolly co-op are now a lot smaller, and again looking at Lorian the way to get some NPC support seems to be too far gone without specifically knowing what to do in advance. I've never seen Sirris for example. Tempted to give up at this point now....
  11. I've been waiting for the next episode for season 7, hadn't realised that it looks like it stopped at episode 10 - that was the finale!!??
  12. I found last weeks episode the weakest when different historic events were being linked up, slightly too quickly and apparently.
  13. It'll be interesting to see how the market reacts to the RRP pricing of the next gen games, with the current gen still averaging RRP of £54 to 59.99 ( ignoring discounting ) the next gen releases are likely to go over £60 to demonstrate their prestige/newness etc I know people talk about Street Fighter days etc, but still paying over £60 for the latest version of a franchise is surely going to take it's toll at some point. Confirming the idea that outside of those mega-hits, the market will only really live on inside subscription models and collectors.

  15. Well I'm still gripped, although I hope the reveal doesn't disappoint after all the tension building.
  16. How will the physical discs versions of this work? For Halo Infinte will there be two different disc versions for original xbox and the new gen ones?
  17. Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons of The Chemical Brothers originally started life as The Dust Brothers, producing tracks like Song To The Siren and Chemical Beats, and remixing Lionrock and Leftfield. After objections from the original The Dust Brothers, known for writing and producing tracks for Tone Loc, Young MC and The Beastie Boys, Rowlands and Simons changed their name. EZ Mike and King Gizmo of the actual Dust Brothers would go on to contribute to the Muppets In Space soundtrack with a cover of Earth Wind and Fire's Shining Star
  18. With that free cassette coming from Select magazine, can look to their first issue which also came with a free casette featuring music from acts including House of Love, Electribe 101, Dusty Springfield, The Fall and Yello Yello obviously made a tonne of brilliant music including

  20. So Tina Weymouth goes on to help produce this dirge from shaun ryder, the proclaimed poetic genius by Tony/Anthony/Tone H Wilson. Money spent on ryders love for crack cocaine and bez's driving licence contribute to the end of Factory Records
  21. Any else find remote downloading through the Game Pass App hit and miss. I have the settings correct but some attempts will just remain as queued and not download unless I do it on the Xbox. Also the play later tab in the App will still show games that I have already downloaded.

  23. I know people have opinions and feel justified to vent them, but when you take a rollercoaster ride, just strap yourself in and enjoy it. Why some then start to complain that it's not the pirate ship?
