  1. Thought the idea of R-Type Final 2 was they were going to just release packs as DLC that had new levels in so kind of like a R-Type platform. Final 3 is also PlayStation exclusive which is a shame. Hopefully it might be a timed one guess we'll find out. Might at least come to the PC.
  2. Just picked up Outrun 2 for the Xbox today. Works on 360 BC which is great. Forgotten how good this is. Visuals and sound still hold up today and gameplay sublime as ever. Nice to have the Ferraris in there too.. which is why we'll never see this working in a Xbox One I guess due to licensing etc. IIRC the arcade game was based on Xbox hardware so explains why its such a good "conversion". What with this and playing some HiFi Rush feels like I've gone back to playing Dreamcast era games. Its great and what I've been missing from most of the new games released these days.
  3. Well good is subjective I guess but it feels like a breath of fresh air. Well defined genres fused together with a Japanese feel to everything. Fast, slick and fun gameplay with fantastic visuals and sound. I like the way this was simply dropped out and released during a presentation too so no opinions all over the web before release etc just download and form your own opinion! Probably why there aren't many reviews either because you don't really need them as it's out there and part of GamePass just try it. You can even instaplay it via xCloud. I get tired of all the crap these days the reviewers put out before a game releases over hyped? Paid for reviews etc etc. It's great to just play something without all the hype beforehand. In fact I'm going to adopt this on future and just wait for things to get released I'm interested in.
  4. Becausse they want to give players the "Edge"... All BS TBH - get that you pay a premium for all the configurability of the pad but to use the same components as the regular pad inside? And a smaller battery? I'd expect better quality components inside.. and still using carbon track based potentiometers in 2023 ... yep only reason for this is they are cheap and expect people to cough up for a new pad all the time. At least you can swap the modules out on this one for better ones... But really at £210 they could do better IMHO. Same with MS and the Elite controller too. Shameful.
  5. This is great. Fast smooth fun and just very playable. It's like the essence of what gaming is about for me brought upto date a bit. Loving the visuals and sound. A lovely fusion of rhythm game, fighter and platforming. Someone mentioned upthread it feels like something Sega would have brought to the Dreamcast. Absolutely. A "gamers game" - old school concepts fused and brought upto date. Certainly a refreshing game after all these open world movie type games.
  6. Just watched the last half as I turned it off the first time mid way though! 😂 Interesting to see what they have added. Still miss the point to point races from earlier Forza games. (Fujimi Kaido type locations). Fingers crossed the inject some fun races back into this rather than all circuit racing.
  7. Indeed no date on Forza Motorsport is a bit poor. Half expect this to slip to a winter release or forth quarter. Also would have been nice to see a build of the game running. What was shown tonight has already been shown before. To be fair unless they've add VR support not really getting that hyped about Forza no mention of new tracks or anything. Great that they have lots of cars but for me tracks are where it's at.
  8. I've been playing a bit of Tempest 2000 tonight since the update. Strangely the Series S controller seems a bit laggy* on this compared to my older Xbox One controller (one before Series). Thought they'd reduced the lag on the new controller. Hmmm very odd. Other thing is that the analogue controller is now an option however if you enable it and using a pad the cross pad up and down stops working making the warp levels impossible. Anyway T2K plays really well at least with the old controller! EDIT * did a firmware update on the Series controller and it seems to have fixed the issue... Forget everything seems to need a firmware update these days.. sure it wasn't that long since I did this...
  9. Ssssshhhh this was one area of the forum where the mention of FR stuff wasn't mentioned. Until now at least Think a majority of people playing this package don't really care that much about frame rates given the software catalogue on offer here....
  10. Bad news. So even if you have bought a physical version will it update and patch this out? Guessing it you just don't update anything you'll be fine however that means no bug fixes etc. Sigh this is a sign of things to come I guess its actually questionable what you are actually buying if they can change and revoke things in their initial offering. I remember when Sony patched out other OS support from their firmware (PS3) technically altering and removing a feature that was part of the original console offering. Of course you couldn't play the latest games unless you did a firmware update so nothing you could really do about it. Same as games. If they put some features in that depend on the update you loose out if you don't update. Of course they will cover off everything on the T&C's which you sign upto when you buy the game or use a service. Progress I guess.
  11. Can you use to Xbox remote on the app via a phone? Think I used to use this to play video etc. It was a while back so may not be there anymore now ... Edit just checked you can Just select the Library button in the app then the consoles menu. Your Xbox consoles will be listed there and when you click on one it will give the option to "open remote control". Saves buying remote controls for it. All for saving e-waste and all that....
  12. A few.... Setting up my ZX Spectrum Xmas morning in 1983 and then loading up Manic Miner. Pretty much had it on most of the day and any visitors having a play with a new fangled computer thing. Remember trying to teach my Grandad how to move left right and jump on the old rubber keyboard Gran Turismo 3 on the PS2. Spent most of the day on that. Experiencing VR for the first time on an Oculus at one of our contractors playrooms! Amazing especially the demos and Project CARS with a wheel. Still think VR is the most innovative thing to happen to gaming in years. They just need to get things more accessible.
  13. Same thing here. Especially when you have been through eras when you'd get enough AAA games coming through to keep interest. And when new.AAA games do get released these days I do wonder why they have taken so long to make when you peel back the visuals the game bit itself seems a bit generic. Perhaps I've just been playing to long so things never feel that fresh anymore and probably why I keep picking up older games and playing those despite their relatively crude graphics etc the gameplay is great. This might actually be the year I leave new AAA games behind and focus on things I actually enjoy playing rather than the new and shiny big budget games.
  14. Recycled my Edge collection a while ago. Kept a few select issues mainly the 100th Edge with the cover drawn by Miyamoto and the three file issues which captured many of the significant stories and developments over the era. I couldn't even give the old mags away even to libraries etc didn't want them.... So off they went to be recycled into making something else....
