  1. Finishing up Get Back today... just amazing and much needed these days. The polis have just turned up telling them to turn the noise down. Looking forward to Macca tonight next.
  2. I've been away from it for at least a year but still hold it up as the best co-op experience in gaming. It's been hugely added to over the years but is still a game about having a fun with friends be they old or new. @Simmy This is purely based on hundreds of hours playing it but it always starts slow to ease you in, within an hour you will see it start to throw random stuff at your crew whilst on the seas. Storms, Megalodons, Skeleton ships. It's a long haul game, not a quick 30 minute pick up and drop type design. Only after a voyage of at least a couple of hours will you understand what its about. Leading to hundreds of hours if it grabs you. It's really about who you play with and comes to life once the screaming, infighting, arguments, idiocy and laughs start. :"I've fallen off the boat" "Sorry lads I shot a gunpowder barrel down below during a storm whilst we were getting attacked by a skeleton galleon." "Somebody fix the boat while I stand here shouting orders." "There's somebody on the boat!" "Shark !!!!!" It's more than possible to have a boring session on it where nothing much seems to happen but fortune favours the bold and attacking other ships or going after a fort elevates it and shows the possibilities far better. It only takes one good session with a good crew to show its good side.
  3. The Xbox showcase fallout. Forza looks crap, Starfield analysis, Kojima is a traitor and Persona sends people over the edge.
  4. 16th at 5pm (BST) Turning gamers into car lovers and game lovers into cars x 10.
  5. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/publication/a-tale-of-two-cities-software-developers-working-from-home-during-the-covid-19-pandemic/ Not game developer exclusive but might give some insight.
  6. If their developers weren't walking around the house in their pants watching Netflix for 2 years why are all their games (and others) delayed by years then ? I don't think they'd be able to just transfer critical code and assets over the internet in emails or discuss anything over Teams for fear of leaks. It was just my attempt at figuring out why this show and the next 12 months was missing so much of the content we already knew about.
  7. I think that MS basically furlowed their own staff and developers for 2 years and essentially shut down any production outside of the offices due to security concerns. You can call that bad or good management depending on which arguement you want to make but one of them will put you in the same boat as Rees Mogg.
  8. 2 hours into a Cesna flight from my local airport outside Glasgow to the Isle of Barra. This happened.
  9. Halo Pelican available in in game marketplace. 14 Liveries. edit: 10 minutes later - it's a bit rubbish.
  10. I'm still looking forwardto it but it was admittedly very rough. I highly suspect the Xbox folks only found out how rough the day before they delayed it.
  11. Hopefully we can meet somewhere in the middle.
  12. I'm going in with the expectation that everything will be 2023. It'll make the Forza Motorsport release easier to deal with.
  13. Tomorrow is going to make 2013 look like a good show. There I said it.
  14. Every xbox podcaster on the youtube superchat grift is convinvced we're getting Forza Motorsport announced this year for release. Having seen nothing of it since the announcement I have my doubts.
