  1. I had a Spectrum 16k then 48k, taught myself BASIC, and like others owe my career and passion for computers to this. A true innovator.
  2. https://worldofspectrum.org/archive/software/games/robocop-ocean-software-ltd Used to love this on the Spectrum. Just add Ray Tracing please.
  3. If anyone's after MH:World and Iceborne for PC, I picked it up for US$30 from Greenman this week. They have the various bundles all with a good discount. https://www.greenmangaming.com/games/monster-hunter-world-iceborne-master-edition-pc/
  4. yep, the forced swear-iness stuck out to me in the demo. A real turn-off.
  5. Me too. I've played about 20+ hours of Prey on PS4, PC and now Xbox Series S, and I assumed all that stuff came later on.
  6. 'There’s no point acting all surprised about it. The Game Pass roadmap has been on display in your dashboard for fifty of your Earth years, so you’ve had plenty of time to lodge any formal complaint and it’s far too late to start making a fuss about it now.’ ‘What do you mean you’ve never looked at the "leaving Game Pass Soon" section? For heaven’s sake Gamers, it’s only four clicks away you know. I’m sorry, but if you can’t be bothered to take an interest in your subscription service, that’s your own lookout.
  7. It was on display in the basement, in a locked filing cabinet, stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying "Beware of the leopard"!
  8. I notice that Bloodstained is leaving Gamepass on 16th March - at least for my region. Quite sad about that as I was taking my time with it.
  9. Sniper Elite 4 is like a World War 2 "Hitman". It's great. I read somewhere that you can complete each level in an hour and the whole game in 10-12 (or something along those lines). I think I'm currently spending at least 2 and probably 3+ hours in each level. I'm not trying to perfect them, but I'm getting all the main and optional objectives done. Superb stuff and seems a waste to rush it.
  10. I wanted to try Dishonored 2 and booted it up on Series S. Is it me or is the frame rate quite low and the input a bit laggy?
  11. I tried Sniper Elite 2 a few years ago and didn't like it much. However, I tried #4 a couple of weekends ago and was glued to it for hours and been playing it a few evenings each week. I'll put this on hold until the 60fps update is out. Can't wait. It's like a WW2 Hitman.
  12. Maybe it'll distract people from ganking me after I've just picked up some neat treasure and want to take it back to port.
  13. All they need to do is add a player economy and pirate clans, and Sea of Thieves is the new Eve Online.
  14. Playing most evenings (GMT+8): Routeburn
  15. Super happy with my Series S and Game Pass. I actually bundle the two things together, as it's not just the hardware but the way that Game Pass provides a "Netflix-like" experience. Personal view on hardware is that 4k60 with ray tracing is the target for this generation, but I've not seen evidence so far to suggest that XSX or PS5 are built to support that across the board. I'm thinking of waiting until XSXv2 or PS5+ to get a high-end console.
  16. That's what I originally thought about the Series S and my PC. However, I spent an hour or so with Doom Eternal on Series S and by golly... it is silky smooth, looks fantastic, and is a much nicer experience on a big TV and speakers. My PC is only a GTX 1080, but still looks very nice and has a high frame rate. But comparing some Series S games, I struggle to say that my own PC is more suited to "heavy lifting" over my Series S. I wonder what the balance point is for this - i.e. when does a PC become noticeably better.
  17. OK, this is good to know. I heard people (I think the TGCS gang) saying how good it was, but installed and tried it for half an hour or so, but.... meh. But you're saying it gets really good? Roughly how far in? 1hr? 2hr?
  18. It does. I was very surprised. Looks great. Very smooth. I wasn't interested in getting it, but now I'm tempted.
  19. This is my experience with No Man's Sky after playing it occasionally since launch and with every new update. I really like what they've created, but unfortunately the actual game translates in to endless busy work and artificial speed bumps, the mechanics of which just aren't fun (to me). I think if they re-visited the inventory, resource gathering and crafting systems then it could be a really enjoyable game. But I know many people really like it. It's just not for me the way it's currently designed.
  20. Completely agree. There are some controllers like the Switch Pro Controller which have awesome internal batteries, but these designs are few and far between. I much prefer to have a controller which takes AA batteries so that I can use rechargeable ones like the Enerloops you mention, or if I'm desperate, just slap in a couple of AA's I have in the kitchen drawer. Under-spec'd internal battery designs for controllers with complex lighting, sound, and rumble features is a nightmare.
  21. Another happy S customer. Performance is great so far, super smooth, and I prefer Destiny 2 on XSX than on my PC. In terms of storage, I have about 4 "big games" and a whole bunch of small/medium games installed and have around 10GB spare. Given I'm using it as a "Game Pass Box", I don't think I'll have more than 4 big Game Pass titles on the go at any one time, so it should be fine. Let's see how it goes as the native X/S games come along in the next year or so.
  22. I discovered this today and am super happy about it. I've been wanting this as a consistent feature for cross-platform play for a long time. I wanted to try DQXI on PC after playing it on XSX, so fired it up and was ecstatic when it offered to let me continue the game where I'd left off a few days ago on another platform.
  23. This is currently PC and Switch as far as I can see. Presumably it will come to Xbox at some point? Is there any particular reason to get it on PC if you have the choice?
  24. Out of interest, does anyone know how well F1 2019 is mean to run on Series S? I installed it last night and the frame rate really wasn't fantastic, and quite inconsistent. However, I've watched a couple of YT videos and it looks buttery smooth and I guess 60fps. Anything I should know?
  25. I've tried again recently, but decided I'll wait for a "next gen update". I just want it in 60fps.
