  1. Their FAQ confirms you shouldn’t have to pay any extra taxes or duties and points you in the direction of their international shipping partner Passport: https://help.play.date/shipping/countries/ Contact information here: https://help.play.date/shipping/where-is-package/ Edit: Hope this isn’t something Brexit-related. I got stung for an unexpected import VAT charge on the Wonderful 101 kickstarter, which seemed to affect UK backers but not EU backers. But then if others upthread have already received theirs without problems, hopefully it’s just a one-off error.
  2. The Zero Escape collection is currently on GamePass so I was going to leave VLR, but it would suit me better to play it on handheld. Is it best to play 999 first or are they completely separate stories?
  3. PlayStation is easy. The triangle is like an up arrow so it’s the top button. X marks the spot for treasure buried underground, so it’s the bottom button. The sun rises in the east, so circle is on the right. And that means the square is the only one left. I’m 39 years old.
  4. There are still plenty of seats on the Team 2022 bus.
  5. I’m feeling this. Really wanted one but it’s a premium price to pay and a big part of the appeal is surely the sense of shared surprise and discovery as the games unlock each week. Plus, there’s no knowing when the first 2022 batch will ship. If it’s more than 3 months after launch then there may already be units on the second hand market from people who have played through the entire first season and have had their fill. Disappointed to miss out but I’ll probably still get one eventually. In the meantime, I’m looking forward to the feedback in here. EDIT: fuck it, Team 2022
  6. I think the 360 games that were enhanced for One X are also enhanced for Series S, but they get the 1440p treatment instead of the full 4k. At least that’s what Digital Foundry was reporting pre-release, based on information they were given by Microsoft. It’s native Xbox One games that won't benefit from One X enhancements on a Series S, although any game that has dynamic resolution or an uncapped or unsteady frame rate should still run better.
  7. Top marks. Yep that’s what I was going for, but @Jamie John ‘s answer works just as well so points all round.
  8. 1. : 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. (()) 8. 9. 10. I think these are all gettable but 7 is a bit obtuse... well done if you get that. Might need to call it a day as my other half is starting to ask difficult questions about why I am spending so much of my day looking at emojis... edit - answers to those that haven’t been guessed:
  9. 1. 3. 4. I think the others have been got already!
  10. Hmm, tricky, is this a game by ? The same studio that made ?
  11. 3: Edit: Aha, just got 2 (I think):
  12. Of course! Very good, that one had me stumped. Taking inspiration from one earlier in the thread:
  13. 1. 2. 3. edit - answers to those which haven’t been guessed:
  14. Possibly... I never had Gold and remember buying points cards from retail rather than from Microsoft to redeem on XBLA. All my other backwards compatible games seem to be downloadable, so I think it’s going to turn out to be that my partner bought the game rather than me and my memory is playing tricks
  15. I have this problem too. I'm almost certain I bought the original Geometry Wars back in 2008/9 when I got my 360 but the store does not recognise that I own the game and wants me to buy it again. The purchase history for my Microsoft account only goes back to 2010, and for the first few recorded transactions it only records purchases of MS Points and not the XBLA games purchased with those points. This was back when you had to buy points to spend on XBLA and you couldn't just buy the games using real money. So I can't tell what games I actually bought. MS changed its approach at some point around 2013/4 because after that my order history records the actual XBLA games purchased and prices I paid in £GBP. I'm not sure why my order history only goes back to 2010 but I vaguely recollect linking my XBLA account with my Microsoft account at some point during the 360's lifespan. Perhaps XBLA purchases which pre-date that aren't associated with your Microsoft account. I actually queried this with MS support who directed me to check my download history for my Xbox 360. That should give you a record of every game purchase as well as every demo, bit of DLC, movie trailer etc. that you bought or downloaded on your 360. Your download history is no longer accessible from the Xbox app or online but if you don't have your 360 set up (which I didn't at the time) then you can still check this via the MS Store app on a Windows PC. If it's there in your download history, take a screenshot and get in touch with MS support. If it's not there, MS will assume it was probably bought using a different account and that your current Microsoft account has no licence to the game.
  16. Perhaps the Live servers are just being hammered now US users are getting their machines. Keep getting error code 0x800704cf (not connected to the internet, check your connection). Frustrating, just finished work and want to play some games! edit: back in now (6.33pm)
