  1. The characters level up together so you can switch between them, but annoyingly you have to do the Knighthood challenges on all four to get the 4th skill tree and the extra navigation ability which takes a bit of grinding. Depends how much time you want to take over it I guess. I’ve been flitting between Nightwing and Batgirl so far (Barbara seems far more powerful) and each character seems to have their own subplot story you can access but unless you play the game through 4 times fully with each character you will miss quite a lot of stuff as apparently all the main story cutscenes are different depending on who you are playing.
  2. It’s actually pretty good, in a generic open world fluff fashion. No doubt it helps immensely that I both have weaknessfor the genre and appreciate the level of fan service in the setting which of second to none. It’s a well executed triple B game. But it is fun. It’s nowhere near the standard of the Arkham games, there’s too much filler in between the story content, the frame rate it a bit choppy on my mid range 3060 laptop (veers from a nailed on 60 to dips down to the mid 30s) but it does look pretty. Some of the appeal will vary on your tolerance for messing with gear and levelling but there is a very decent core game in here. Im enjoying my time with it anyway and having the four characters that play noticeably differently is a neat touch. No disaster certainly but no masterpiece either.
  3. Nope you have to buy them all separately. Witch Queen is plenty to be going on with and all you need to play the current content. Beyond Light is only really needed for the Statis class and Shadowkeep can be safely skipped unless you get madly back into the game.
  4. FWIW it definitely used to be very noticeable on some games…AC: Origins was particularly badly affected I remember, although it might be something Windows has subsequently patched out. At any rate I’ve used the adapter for the last couple of years and it works a treat, caveats about being careful with them notwithstanding.
  5. Bluetooth has a habit of really killing frame rates on some games, causes some weirdness when the batteries run low and also doesn't play too nice with the Xbox Wireless headphones for some reason. You can still get the wireless adapter (Msoft are selling the Series pad with an adaptor for £45 currently) - worth the money in my opinion as removes all the above issues. https://www.xbox.com/en-gb/accessories/controllers/xbox-wireless-controller-adapter-win10 Warning though they are fragile as hell things - I recommend using the extra wire it comes with and hiding the little stick thing away somewhere safe where it will not get knocked - I've killed two of them so far where they've taken a gentle blow whilst sticking out of a USB port on my laptop.
  6. The reviews suggest its thin but trashy fun and as it’s on Gamepass so don’t need to commit any funds that’s enough for me to dive in. Although seems silly to have released it on the same day as Evil West which looks to be going for a similar old school action vibe but more successfully
  7. Woot. Took a chance on this for £30 for a steam code in the Voidu sale as I thought it looked proper old school AA fun so delighted that’s exactly what it’s turned out to be.
  8. £29.99 for all versions at Smyths Toys https://www.smythstoys.com/uk/en-gb/video-games-and-tablets/video-games/sonic-frontiers/sonic-frontiers-xbox-one-series-s-x/p/214838
  9. Any half decent high speed USB C to USB C cable will work fine. I have this one and it has no issues https://amzn.eu/d/5wQOsCn If your home wireless setup is up to it however infinity superior to go wireless however. I needed a new router in the end as my old BT home hub 5 wasn’t up to it but when we switched ISP the new Plusnet one was fine. Best results if you can go Ethernet to the PC and play in the same room as the router but the free Air Play software seems to work great now and playing Alyx cable free is a far better experience. You just need to download the Oculus client to your PC.
  10. Game Freak have always been fairly rubbish at optimising their games, needs to be remembered they are not a Nintendo internal team.
  11. Yes but your kids will love it. My pair will be annoyed it’s being removed
  12. Meh people keep saying that but I switched to be a largely PC only gamer about 5 years ago; now on my second gaming laptop and 99% of what I play has no issues with booting it up and letting the GeForce experience thing work out the best settings. Doesn’t seem much of a difference to the various graphics options being offered with the current and souped up last genconsoles
