  1. The PC demo of Skate Bird was pretty rough a few months back tbf. I've downloaded it to see if my kids enjoy some mindless flipping and flapping.
  2. Got a surprise £8 voucher for taking part in the Summer Showcase event (bought enough to fill the punch card) which coincided with a 30% discount on Little Nightmares 2 Was a nice little bonus. Came through as a message on the Xbox from Microsoft so might be worth checking if you've muted them in any way.
  3. Yep, I think Ultimate is it's own thing so you can still upgrade from the PC one as if you were a new subscriber.
  4. Pretty sure I only paid £1 when I did this after letting PC GamePass lapse a few months back. Worst case it's £10.99 but you may be pleasantly surprised.
  5. I installed the Discord alerts more out of interest than anything else. My 2060 is plenty good enough for 1080 75hz. Having said that, a Founders 3060ti came on for RRP but I was on holiday and didn't see it until hours later. I should probably check my PSU as that may need an update before GPU does.
  6. Neither. Carry on and all will be revealed. Nothing has gone wrong.
  7. Me four. The punch card link goes to the full Gamescom video rather than the SoD3 trailer and doesn't activate. The weekly one just sends me on a loop.
  8. It's a grower rather than an immediate banger. Some lovely callbacks to earlier albums with some of the melodies and Riffs (or blatant recycling if you're feeling less generous). Not sure about the 'doing stuff that nobody would expect Maiden to do' hype that Bruce was spouting though.
  9. Generally speaking, VPNs aren't a great solution for Steam as they used to be pretty quick with code revoking/banning etc. This may have changed recently but the portable Deck may be different anyway as you could feasibly move it between regions in your hand luggage
  10. Yeah, especially with Brave's bowling lineup. That being said, Moeen is a big add for Phoenix as long as he isn't in Test mentality.
  11. Put a few hours into this and it really is as good as the hype. Had it on Epic since Early Access but kept putting it off until it was ready and then just forgot about it. Currently getting absolutely wrecked by the Elysium boss(es) so am busy levelling up my upgrades. Also decided to switch on God Mode so that I don't get too frustrated and not finish it.
  12. WWE SUMMERSLAM WWE Universal Championship Roman Reigns (c) vs John Cena 250 points WWE Championship Bobby Lashley (c) vs Goldberg 250 points WWE Raw Women's Championship Nikki ASH (c) vs Charlotte Flair vs Rhea Ripley 225 points WWE Smackdown Women's Championship Bianca Belair (c) vs Sasha Banks 225 points WWE United States Championship Sheamus (c) vs Damian Priest 200 points WWE Raw Tag Team Championships AJ Styles & Omos (c) vs RK-Bro 200 points WWE Smackdown Tag Team Championships The Usos (c) vs Rey & Dominik Mysterio 200 points Edge vs Seth Rollins 150 points Drew McIntyre vs Jinder Mahal 150 points Alexa Bliss vs Eva Marie 150 points NXT TAKEOVER 36 NXT Championship Karrion Kross (c) vs Samoa Joe 250 points NXT Women's Championship Raquel Gonzalez (c) vs Dakota Kai 250 points NXT UK Championship Walter (c) vs Ilja Dragunov 175 points Million Dollar Championship LA Knight (c) vs Cameron Grimes 175 points Two out of Three Falls Match Kyle O'Reilly vs Adam Cole 150 points BONUS QUESTIONS 1. Which match opens the main SummerSlam card? US title 2. Which is the shortest match of the weekend? Lashley vs Goldberg 3. Identify a wrestler to debut or make a return on either show. Becky Lynch
  13. There's a couple of VR hiking games on PC that are pretty good proofs of concept but I agree some kind of orienteering experience could work really well.
  14. Ah, cheers. Only recently got back on the Xbox train after a few years away and haven't caught up on the different jargon yet
  15. https://www.xbox.com/en-US/play Log in here and you can play the X-cloud enabled games on your PC. I've used it for a few Rewards based games (especially while my One X was getting repaired) and it works ok. A bit laggy for more twitch based experiences though. @therearerules
  16. The PS4 one certainly does - my kids have been obsessed with it for months. Also opens up some cheeky item duplication glitches that can bypass some of the more laborious opening hours if you want
  17. Exact same thing with Undermine here. A bit gutted that I'll lose the progress I made on Xbox but hoping that I'll make up for that with the benefits of my experience starting it on Switch. Perfect for handheld too (just as well as I'm on a Lite).
  18. That website is a Godsend as the wifi is a bit patchy for phone play. That'll definitely tide me over until the One X is either back or replaced with a functioning Series S
  19. D'oh! That's a good point. I stupidly thought the streaming was only through connecting to my own console via the Console Companion app but it's not is it? In my defense I've been out of the Xbox scene since the 360 days until about a month and a half ago.
  20. My Xbox One X is off being fixed (retimer chip has died) so I'm just doing the browser stuff at the moment. Annoying that PC Gamepass stuff isn't integrated into this yet - not sure why not as they are pushing for the two to be taken together through Ultimate. Oh well, saves me downloading huge games for 5 minutes of play then uninstalling them I guess
  21. They're just scared of not having the most number of batsmen as they can get, especially with Stokes out. As you say, though, this hasn't stopped the collapses and batting failures anyway and just limits the bowling options. Seems to be team selection out of fear rather than confidence - the opposite of what they've done in being successful in the limited overs formats.
  22. Done about 4 areas so far and totally agree. The controls are smoother than the demo too which is great. I love the little critters - look like the lovechildren of Journey and Rare games
  23. Omno is a great laid back game with a lovely atmosphere and some cute creature designs. Probably best paired with something like The Ascent as a cool down experience though
  24. Most of them have been. Between that and the BBC coverage I think there's only been a few games not available to watch live for free,
  25. It's the kind of finish the format needs to get people rooting for the new teams. Was genuinely tense stuff and I was far more involved than I expected to be. Hales probably got a lot of satisfaction out of it too, given how Stokes is the golden boy whilst he is clearly never going to get picked for England again.
