  1. Cheers, I'm really not keen on taking out a subscription though, if anyone else has a recommendation, that'd be great.
  2. What do you guys use to edit photos? I don't want to start subscribing to Photoshop as I like to own things outright, needs to work on Mac.
  3. I can't be bothered to even scan through sale lists. It'd be good if Microsoft would make personal landing pages for sales that say something like "these are the games that you've looked at before" or are games that people who play what you play are also playing, etc. If they're going to mine me for data constantly, at least make it beneficial when I'm trying to give them even more money.
  4. I think it goes like this for me: 1sec - know instantly (as has been the case the recently) Or 1sec - think it sounds a bit like a band/artist I've heard but don't know well - guess at the options available until the time runs out, maybe stumble across the answer.
  5. correct. Doesn't work with some of the more well known free VPNs like Tunnelbear.
  6. I think Jim Ryan needs to write a letter to Rllmuk.
  7. Why would you be ashamed? #Heardle #76 ️️️️️ https://www.heardle.app
  8. That stupid jumping traversal mechanic looked so cringeworthy (and the glider for that matter) but when seen through the eyes of another player it looks terrible. The rest looked like the Arkham games... but worse. Must be sad working on a game and being told it must be shown before it's ready.
  9. I played last man standing in my lunchbreak today and made it to the final. It was quite tense. I still had one life left, but he had 4. Owing partly to the geometry of the final circle, there were actually some options on how to engage and approach/defend and the regenerating shield and relatively low damage rate of the zone means you can run in and out of the circle without worrying too much. It actually makes Halo's Battle Royale a little more interesting than you might think. In my favour I had fully levelled up to shotgun/BR while was still using a commando, but I was quite resigned to losing, given his 4 lives to my 1. My heart was in my mouth throughout. The other player sent me a message congratulating me on my win at the end.
  10. When this happens I'm under the impression it only affects people who haven't set their console to be their Home console. Certainly my downloaded games worked last night.

  12. Nah. Some games are 1440p, Some are lower, some higher (Ori is 4k on series S, I think)but I don't think most games hit 1440p

  14. #Heardle #64 ️ https://www.heardle.app I didn't realise the crosses were colour coded.
  15. I did something similar but it was even higher. I cashed my points in and don't bother with it now!
  16. I just saw this: If this is correct and 343 are really only planning to release 2 extra maps in the first YEAR of Halo Infinite then heads should be rolling. I am pretty much 100% in the "WTF are 343 doing?" Camp. They have finally burnt through the goodwill I had for them.
  17. I hope Forge maps are not the answer. They're always poorer quality maps, imo. To some degree I think I'd rather have fewer maps than Forge maps. I don't want to come off as one of those entitled fans that Halo has so many of, but I do wonder what 343 expect infinite to look like a year after it's release and if the Xbox heads are happy with how it's going so far.
  18. Interesting to see that the article says Sony paid to do the same thing at launch, I wonder if Microsoft have been waiting their turn since then. I've never heard of it before, I wonder if it's something we could see more of in the future, buying up production and interrupting your rival's supply.
  19. I thought they'd be offering 4 arena maps at least. I think infinite plays really well, but this isn't enough, imo.
  20. I just saw a preview of the new maps. ...are they only adding 2?
  21. I reckon that they don't need something as crude as achievements to measure player's actions, I'm sure they're constantly monitoring what players are doing in much more detailed ways. But on topic, on Xbox (no idea on playstation), it'll tell you how many players get a particular achievement. Years ago I noticed that really easy achievements - things you'd get in the course of playing a game for an hour would have really low percentages, like 50% of players wouldn't have the equivalent of "finish the first level" or whatever. When I beat Margit on Elden Ring (which despite having played a fair amount of these games before took me a few goes) I noticed that around 50% of players had managed it too. Now, vs the whole game, this is not much of an indicator of a rabid player base, but to enthuse 50% of the players of the biggest selling game of the year (maybe) enough that they'll all fight through a fair number of hours to get to the boss and then prevail does show that ER must be some sort of engagement hit.
  22. First time playing, heard the voice and thought I might know who it was. Typed their name, no options came up. Meant I knew that it wasn't the answer, which is a bit of a limit of the system.
  23. Can I upgrade weapons with abandon or are smithing stones going to become scarce?
  24. Sif. I've got a tshirt with them on and everything.
