  1. It was very good. Not the best episode, and followed the tried and tested Curb formula very obviously, but there have been much worse season openers. Predictions:
  2. @mdn2 Should have my copy arriving today! I had it for the Wii U, but the lack of off-screen play made it really limiting for me - I much prefer playing RPGs on a handheld of some sort, so I loved how it started but never stuck with it past the first few hours. Can't wait to play it on Switch though.
  3. Some of my favourites from recent years: This has such a great energy thanks to the editing and Kanye, and it gives a decent flavour of the film without spoiling anything. This is one of my favourites for telling you everything you need to know about the film without telling you anything. Love it. This is just cute as hell. Again, great music and no spoilers.

    Xbox Game Pass

    As mentioned, Into the Breach is fabulous and works perfectly fine with a trackpad as it’s turn based.
  5. My point exactly. The current setup required is janky as hell. But a Switch-style device that can be turned on instantly, connects to a remote streaming service in a second, and can start playing a game straight away (resuming where you left off) would be perfect for me, and probably many others. It would offer something new at least - the ability to play graphically intense games anywhere in the house in an instant.
  6. I'd say at least 80% of all Switch use will be at the owner's home. Like I said, my favourite things about the Switch are instant off/on, and off-TV play, not the fact that I can take it out the house.
  7. A more viable piece of hardware would be one purely based around streaming, either through Steam Link/GeForce Now/Stadia/XCloud, with a decent-ish sized screen (7”-8”)? I’d love something like that in a year or two when the streaming services are ready, with a form factor very much like this one (but obviously a lot smaller). I rarely take my Switch out, so portability (i.e. lack of fast internet) isn’t an issue for me. The best things about the Switch are instant off/on, and off-TV play, not the fact that I can take it out the house. As it is, this will be expensive, big, hot, not all that powerful, and won’t have all the benefits of playing on an actual PC (no or awkward keyboard/mouse compatibility etc). Looks cool in a Tesla Cybertruck kind of way though.
  8. Perhaps restrictions made him a better, more creative filmmaker (limited budget and special effects etc), and when they were no longer an an issue with hundreds of millions to spend and the advent of CGI, he went shit. Kind of like Quentin Tarantino.

    Outer Wilds

    Just got the ‘You’ve met a terrible fate’ achievement, along with the best game over screen ever

    I did the same earlier, but instead:

    Xbox Game Pass

    Yeah, I had 12 months of Live and 12 months of Game Pass on my account, and they stacked and became 24 months of Ultimate.

    Xbox Game Pass

    You don’t need Ultimate, the beta is £3.99 a month, rising to £7.99 after an unspecified time. But you’re much better off getting 12+ Xbox Live and adding the £1 Ultimate trial, as it’ll work out cheaper(!).
  13. Yeah, this always makes me laugh when it comes on TV. Superbad is another one. I never had fond memories of it, but when I rewatched it a couple of years ago, it was much better than I remembered. Team America: World Police is another great shout. Dumb & Dumber is my favourite comedy, but you’ve probably seen that already.

    Xbox Game Pass

    I love Game Pass, and I’ll probably get the next Xbox as my new ‘main’ console (secondary to the Switch still, obvs). My preference this gen was PS4 originally, as Microsoft fucked up the One launch so bad, but I’m leaning back towards the Xbox now. Having Game Pass for Xbox and PC, and the possibility of Project XCloud allowing me to enjoy those games streamed on my iPad or Mac in future, is a huge interest. I probably won’t renew my PS Plus sub when the time comes as it’s a bit crap for me really. I actually looked into subbing to PS Now when we stayed with the in-laws for a week over Christmas, but it‘s Windows only Competition is great though. It was Sony who started to give away games with their service first, which led to Games with Gold and then Game Pass.
