  1. This season is the first time I’ve sat and played Fortnite, bought the battle pass along with my kids as a way to hang out over the summer. I’ve really enjoyed it. I can use my old school FPS skills and enjoy the fire fights a lot. I can’t build for shit so when I come up against a really good vertical builder I usually come off worse. But a handy jar of fireflies helps take em down! I’ve loads of wins in solo, duo, trio and squads so happy with that. I did find the quests addictive, I’m level 190ffs! Tempted not to get next seasons battle pass tho as I’m afraid I’ve nearly burnt myself out. I might just do the kids quests when they are in school. Just helping like!

    I think £50 is fair enough for an old band plus the price of touring etc. Anyway got sorted for Dublin! I saw pavement the day before Crooked Rain came out, they played Belfast. It was fantastic, we got to watch the soundcheck and had a chat with a few of the band after as they went to eat and we got stuck into our carryout while hiding from the cops behind a big billboard that used to be beside the venue.
  3. Is there a link to the ABS extension anywhere? seems dead. I wanted to install it on a new laptop / show it to @Gringo
  4. my mate has, not sure what brand but he likes it
  5. Completed it last night and like most people, enjoyed it a lot. The occasional platform frustration is long forgotten, the inventive and visually stunning levels will be remembered. The story was interesting throughout, each original psychonaut got their history fleshed out - Tim did a great job. I did play the original back in the day. I cant see me spending too much time afterwards in the levels, mostly due to time constraints and gamepass games I want to try (Hades is calling). In the olden days I probably would have. A quick mop up of any achievements, an uninstall and a gold star for Double Fine and MS.
  6. actually one handy way round that is if they have their own controllers, set the controller to auto sign in their account - removes the pop up choose account page and takes each kid in!
  7. Sign your account into both, will automatically add any family accounts when you sign into the S. For the least amount of hassle, set the One X as your HOME console. That means they can work away and your account just stays in the background, never needing to be signed in and they can play gamepass games that youve installed. The S will need to be always online for you to play anything sadly. You cant have be logged into both consoles at the same time. Saves will sync, but probably not when using Quick Resume. If you set the S as your HOME then the kids accounts on the one X cant play gamepass and they have to play as you. I think this is right.
  8. I enjoyed the cooking a lot but fuck me that boss did my head in. It just felt like it was going on too long and the constant chase for health that drop off the map did annoy me. Beat him 2nd time round when I was a bit more savvy. Love the game but it has its share of annoying bits!
  9. Not sure what you mean by licenses? Anything you own digitally on 360 will be there ready to download (thats backward compatible of course) Just make sure all saves are in the cloud, not all there by default on the 360, I remember sitting uploading them in one one day.
  10. I just assume its a way for them to gague interest and also keep it in the forefront of your mind as you see it there every time you look at your games.
  11. Pace dropped considerably in the hub level but i suppose the needed time to get the story setup again after the cool first level. Back in business now and enjoying the next 'mind a lot!
  12. Played opening level this morning with the kids, my eldest (10) was really interested ad had loads of whys - around the brain and what the enemies meant (regret etc) so it was kinda fun answering and mucking about. We'll hopefully play it together if i dont sneak off and play it when they are in bed
  13. I'm not sure what's the point of these 'get an X' posts. People pop into the thread saying they love their S, cant that be enough? They cant actually buy an X without a load of dicking about. They have older TV's or are using it as a complementary device. Enjoy!
  14. Have played a few runs for the first time so excuse the total noob questions, ive just unlocked the shield. I've picked up various power ups (boons?) are they all applying on top of each other or do I have to modify / set them up somewhere? Im just picking what sounds nice at the time. Are the rooms i go into with different symbols (red trident etc) mean anything in particular? Do I need to smash barrels / towers to get stuff (my RSI hopes not)
  15. Perfect, takes about 3 mins including loading!
  16. Only one I had installed was Plagues Tale which took about half hour but I liked what I saw and had planned to start it someday.
  17. Ha you’ve been snooping in an apartment then!
  18. Yep i know, ive done the tutorials! This is a comical left 90 degress turn and crash i wasn't having before trying squirrells settings. I'll maybe go back and add them slowly and see whats causing it.
  19. Had a lot of fun on Multiplayer on this last night, just flying around Northern Ireland, local airports - taking off and picking a airport to land at and seeing who could stick the landing. Some harily small airports in the mourne mountains. Its just a delight and surprisingly fun in multiplayer. Especially when trying to land a cessna and someone is divebombing in an airbus.
  20. The twin prop did it the entire flight, no matter what i had the engine speed at. I may have missed something but mate had same settings and issue.
  21. I setup everything on xbox like Squirrel said but im having a few problems - some planes just want to keep climbing, constantly flighting to keep the nose down. (Twin prop c4..?) Others keep banking hard left while on the ground / as soon as i take off (the small biplane / stunt plane) If I set everything back to easy this seems to go away.
  22. Finished the Last Stop last night. Its a class story I really enjoyed it. Great script and voice acting. There's not much of a 'game' in it, its pretty rudimentary. I played the last hour in bed console streaming to the ipad. So in that way if you don't like walking sims you'd be best to avoid this. Its like a sci fi domestic dr who vibe.
  23. Was wondering this too - you go first and let me know
  24. Anyone get the multiplayer 'group' to work? Tried to join friends and we kept getting message we've left the group. Ended up just choosing LIVE and spawning at the same airport but hectic to find each other in the air at times. Was wondering if being part of a group actually highlighted the other player in the air
  25. eBay, nearly new, best offer! Really glad I got it. 2nd game using it was a trio on fortnite with the kids and we won, I was able to get more involved and take on people confidently. I see a set on there for £28 best offer at the moment
