  1. My Son's MS account is part of my Family account setup on our Xbox. I have a GPU sub that we can all use. He's just installed the Xbox app on his PC (which he signs into using his MS account) and logged into it using his MS account and it's not recognising that he has access to Gamepass through it. Do I need to log into the PC app with my account in order for him to be able to use it? And if I do that, can he still then switch it over to his account rather than have to use mine on it? Is this one of the many foibles of the PC app I keep reading about?
  2. Have to admire your commitment, not sure I could play through EGA versions of games that have VGA versions available. This is a genre very close to my heart, but just don't have the time to go back to a lot of these classics. Instead I've found a great way to revisit them is to put their longplays on in the background while I'm working.
  3. Would be interesting to see how all of this data was compiled. I'd imagine the vast majority of these types of purchases are just private 2nd hand sales so where are they getting the data from? Completed ebay listings?
  4. Ta, might download it and check it out this weekend.
  5. How invasive are the rpg elements in this? Could you play it (on the easier difficulty levels at least) pretty much as a straight action shooter and ignore a lot of the tinkering? This looks like it might be a contender for me and a couple of buddies to get into but we have very limited gaming time each week so if you have to spend half the time fiddling with builds it'll suck a lot of the fun out of it.
  6. I got stuck on this at first also last night, trying to set up some demos with a couple of friends. You just have to cycle through a few different track locations as not all locations seem to have all race types available.
  7. Yeah this took me AGES to work out! Just having a tiny flag indicating you need a vehicle from a specific country/continent to allow you to compete in a challenge is bonkers. Especially as you get no indication anywhere else that that is the issue. There doesn't even seem to be a filter when viewing new cars that you can set to only show vehicles from certain regions. Other than that though it's a fantastic game, and is really scratching the the arcade dirt racer itch. WIll hopefully get some multiplayer action on it tonight with a couple of friends.
  8. I'd make sure you go into this with your eyes open, and are very confident with a soldering iron. I'd say unless you have a decent de-soldering station it's anything but a quick job. IME it's more like an hour+ per stick, by the time you've teased the existing solder out, with 14 contact points to address. In case you've not opened one up yet, this is what the joints look like that you need to re-do: In addition the newer bluetooth-enabled controllers use lead-free solder so you need a higher temperature and some flux applied to get the solder to
  9. (On Xbox one) is it possible/straight-forward to set up private games with a couple of friends on this? tried to have a read around online but looks like the info I'm able to find might be out of date.
  10. I've used both the direct Xbox streaming to a windows 10 PC, and using the xcloud gamepass service on an android tablet. It's been an absolute godsend for me. We got a new puppy last Oct, which we had to keep out of our main lounge where the xbox lives, which meant as I was always on late-night puppy duty I was also locked out of any gaming, while being stuck up late doing nothing. Being able to stream to our oldish non-gaming spec Win10 laptop has been a brilliant way for me to be able to continue to play. I still find it incredible that the functionality even exists, I let out a
  11. Darn it, I've just ordered both available issues of Amiga Addict thanks to you lot. It was - ironically - the image of the old Games-X weekly mag in one of the sample pages that sold me on it.
