    360 digital games are still region locked yeah.

     

    Found DOA4 on the store last night and it kept throwing an error. Tried 4 or 5 times no dice. Checked today and the £16.74 has been debited for every instance where it failed yet there's nothing in my MS purchase history. Fuck sake.


    Same thing happened to me with all of the cheap Tomb Raider games last week. Everything stayed in the cart but they all downloaded when I visited the store page for each game. I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to play them until I got a receipt from MS about five hours later.

    If this is genuine doesn't look promising for RR6 - unless it is a games with gold upcoming title and they have to stay quiet

     

     

    Linneman advocates for discs in his reply (he has his, of course) but it's a ridiculous situation. I have my RR6 disc but I would happily buy a digital copy so I didn't have to swap it into the machine every time I fancied a quick race. It's also not fair on anyone who wasn't fortunate enough to hold on to a physical copy from sixteen years ago and now has to source one.

    I read your post. I don't believe Microsoft have reached those limits for every game they could possibly bring back. It'll likely be the balance between what you've quoted and justifying the resources for the exercise, although I'll concede that this doesn't explain Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? Make the Grade appearing in today's list.

  4. Wasn't aware this thread existed until recently.

    Late last year I decided that a wonderful way to take my mind off being in lockdown was to finally get around to playing The Last of Us. (I know, I know.) Before the pandemic hit I'd spent some time taking black and white photos with film in preparation for a photography course that ended up being cancelled. Trying to mimic some of the look by taking photos of the locales in TLoU was an interesting exercise for someone stuck indoors- the only rules were that the camera settings had to largely be the same (except for exposure and depth of field) and character models were a bit too dated/stylised to photograph, so those were out.

    The last one is a bit more "gamey" than the rest but it came to mind after reading "Who do we not save?" in the news earlier this year.

  5. On to chapter 7 of Zero. I might've made Kiryu into a monster- he's sitting on top of a skill tree taken as far as it can go, the three basic fighting styles maxed out, a complete real estate empire and trillion yen. The boss fight and enemy rush was a bit anticlimactic when he was slapping everyone down with ease. He might as well go after the Dojima family right now. :lol:

  6. BotW2 is the only thing released next year that I'm likely to play. No PS5/Series X here and no feeling of urgency to get either, plus the massive backlog I've accumulated is keeping me occupied.

    I wanted a palette cleanser after 0, so I never really continued straight onto the others but I could be tempted to jump back in after I finish Spider-Man. 

     

    I'm feeling the same way. I love Y0 but I don't think I could move straight on to Kiwami after this.

     

    I'm the worst type of person to play these games because I just want to do everything. I get wrapped up in pursuing the side quests as often as possible, like a greedy kid wolfing sweets before dinner. (58/60 Kiryu quests done by chapter 6 is a bit indulgent.) I'll be quite pleased if Kiwami's scope is as vastly reduced as people say it is, because 30 hours the next time around will be more than enough for me. I need to go on a side quest diet!
