  1. It's great when you get all 6 weapons leveled and evolved and you wade through the masses destroying everything in your vicinity. 

     

    I'd did try getting to the bottom of the Gallo tower last night to unlock a secret character (using the Witch with cat) and still got murdered around the 25 min mark as my setup was off. Did manage to unlock the little white dog though!

    I have been chipping away at this and to give you an idea of where I am at, I get to last about 14 mins on Stage 1.  Something mad just happened, suddenly my character got some insane upgrade and was destroying everything in a rain of bullet-hellfire, so much so that I managed to survive the whole 30 mins killing almost 10K baddies in the process.  I have no clue what I did to get that, might it have been something from a Chest..?

    I had this, its a power up that gives you a flame that destroys anything in its path. I got it once during the skele attack, fantastic! Then you need hoover to pick everything up!

     

    My current go to is Impela (one of the starting characters) with the Laurel shield, spinning bibles and wand. I have been buying Into luck on the start screen as this does seem to help with the crazy power ups, health drops and bags of money from torches.

  3. On the Dreamcast I remember Sega doing an offer through retailers where they offered a free DVD player with every Dreamcast purchased. An obvious attempt to try and counter the PS2 and its DVD drive.

     

    To be fair the DVD player I got with my Dreamcast lasted a good 10 years, can't say the same for the console!

  4. Fed up of fan noise when playing Series enhanced games I finally moved my Series X behind the TV last night and it worked! 

     

    Although the X had ventilation in the unit I had it in, it was still enclosed and I think it reverberated the sound of the fan.

     

    I can finally play the likes of Deathloop in peace.

    When do we see our first non human in the Rebel Alliance in the original trilogy? 

    Technically Chewbacca but in terms of serving officers it's Ackbar and Prune Face in RotJ.

    I agree with this to an extent, but to compare them to Nintendo, yes Mario Kart is their biggest game, but every year they churn out successful games that people buy and that keep the train going.

     

    I don’t think there is any easy way around this for MS. They need big tent pole games to sell their service and get those subscription numbers up. It doesn’t matter whether they are exclusive or available on every other platform, but Phil Spencer’s comments about GP don’t ring true with me at all. Those numbers aren’t where they were expected to be, they didn’t think it would stabilise and stay level two years into the generation. 
     

    I’ve just read the hit points and it totally says what I’m trying to say there, but obviously much better than I have and with numbers and stuff. 

    This is also why the buying of devs and Publishers won't stop with Activision. MS will keep buying to get as much games and IP to fill GamePass as quickly as possible whilst they are waiting for the inevitable churn of first party to finally catch up.

    I love that boot animation sound. It's like a tiny blast of Tetris Effect every time you turn the console on.

    It's the best Xbox Boot sound and I will not be turning it off! I was upset when they shortened it.

  8. We bought a Series S for daughters birthday but I have been sneaking in plays of stuff on my account and seriously thinking of getting a third one for the spare room, great little machine!

  9. Anyone get select games that seem to make the fan on the Series X loud?

     

    I started Deathloop last night to be greeted to this. Last time it happened was Avengers last year. most if not all games I play don't seem to do this, its usually whisper quiet.

     

    What causes it? Why would one game make the console go into takeoff mode (I understand games with some graphical oomph will push the machine a bit but I've played plenty more visually taxing games with no issue)?

     

    Anyway, playing with headphones for this from now on, it reminds me of the PS4!!

    What happened to the rumours that the next AC game would be "the last"? I've no idea where the info originated from, but there was talk about the next AC game simply being a huge sandbox that would live on for years and years and would simply receive content in the form of expansions. 

     

    If the current rumours about Basim being the next protagonist are correct I'd be fine with that, but I'm not sure if I'm overly excited about Baghdad as the area of choice, the endless vistas of sand and dust in Origins was more than enough of that kind of place for me. 

    From what I understand this was going to be another bit of DLC for Valhalla but they decided to spin it into its own game whilst they work on the big live service style AC game you mention.

    Her Story is still in my steam library, untouched. I should remedy that.

    I played Her Story recently and would agree that it's the better game over Telling Lies. It's also on PC Gamepass (No console version unfortunately).

     

    Completely forgot about Immortality coming out today. Having enjoyed Barlows other games I will definitely be giving this a go.

    they must mean “like Xbox one launch era Microsoft”… :coffee:

    I think a better phrase would be "Mattrick era Microsoft". He came in around 2007, began pissing away all of Peter Moores work to establish Xbox further by focusing on Project Natal for the future and not on building a better first party output. The rot really did set in during the 360 years.

  13. It looked like Maz Kanata was in that trailer (or at least an alien of the same species?)

     

    Either way this looks great. Loving all of the Imperial Senate stuff they are showing. Wonder if we see Palps on his throne in the Jedi Temple?

    Loved Sable. Some great climbing in there. I almost completed it but I think I've got one more egg to find and no clue where it might be. Argh!

    I didn't bother finding all the eggs myself in the end, just enough for the achievement and the mask (100). 

     

    A couple of screenshots from my post endgame sojourn. The graphical style is just stunning in certain instances.

  15. Technical issues aside Sable continues to l impress me. I am at end game (need to head back to the starting camp to choose my final mask) and just mopping up Chum eggs and the final ship quest.

     

    It's also very chill, no combat, just zooming along the dunes in my trusty hoverbike.

  16. I played the tech demo version they released when the Series X came out (just called Bright Memory) which was OK, if lacking polish. Environments were glitchy and enemies a bit bullet spongy.

     

    Is this any better? The graphics certainly look flashier.
