  1. Just had an amazing three days at the Goodwood Revival! Didn't realise that the Goodwood circuit is part of an update to GT Sport.... Might be trying that out in a Mini! Love the way they were drifting around the corners this weekend. Plenty of exotic cars racing this weekend.... Highly recommended for classic car fans and well car fans alike! Now I want to have a track day.... My SAAB 9-5 turbo doesn't feel fast bah....
  2. Sad news indeed. My first computer was a 48K ZX Spectrum with rubber keys and all. Innovative design and accessible to the masses like most of Sinclairs designs. British tech icon.
  3. Wonder if they are saving 8 to up against GT7 next year.....
  4. Probably COVID related issues getting it out in the scheduled time...and licensing running out on the current game.. (think this was mentioned up-thread).
  5. Probably... it did with some of the older Forza Horizon games. the 360 versions of Forza Horizon fetch good money these days in particular....
  6. 3 was amazing! My favourite Forza game ever made. Still have it and a 360 to play it on (along with PGR4 which is my favourite arcade racer)
  7. Surprised there 8 is not ready yet. So at the moment you cannot buy a Forza Motorsport game? 7 was a big improvement over 6 IMHO and enjoyed it more. Especially as it brought 4K to the mix which was a huge achievement especially on the older Xbox hardware (X).
  8. Need one of those given how much I've spent over the last year! My aim at the moment is just embrace what I do currently have and actually play the games I have on the new hardware and enjoy them! So no season here...
  9. To be fair. I leave the PS5 in rest mode and allowed it to download and install updates in rest mode. Not had a problem so far. Its so transparent the only time I know something has updated is when I get a notification when I'm playing something else! (happened this morning whilst playing Returnal - got an notification message saying that GT:Sport had been updated). So not sure am I lucky? I think anything that involves networks and connectivity can be hit and miss to be honest from experience. Mostly I guess its the OS software not well designed for a fail condition. Ironically I guess my PC seems to be rock solid in this respect on Steam. Never have any problems at all on that...
  10. Problem with modern consoles though... they are complex and essentially PCs these days - along with updates etc. Although agree it should be more seemless on consoles... its not has if Sony have a seemingly infinite number of configurations of PS5 hardware to contend with....
  11. Ah OK. Guess it depends how much time you have for a gaming session? And this is why Sony put a rest mode on the PS5? Agree this is why they haven't patched it. It doesn't need a patch as it changes the whole premise of the game.... Anyway I'll take further comments into the Returnal topic... Needless to say its on my winter play pile now...
  12. Just spent a bit of time on this for the past hour or so... Impressed. I get it now. Saving is irrelevant! Each time you come back you are presented with a different scenario - its the whole premise of the game and as the title suggests "Returnal" its actually really different. Must remind myself to not be so judgmental sometimes..... and of course make some time to put into games. Need to do another cull I think.
  13. Hang on you can't save in Returnal? I really need to put some time on that game. ... Only played an hour or so if it and then switched the machine off ... Not been back to it since. Guessing as it's a Housemarque game it leans towards more of an arcade game approach? Same way you can't really "save" in Resogun (other than high score table). Anyway I'm in danger of de-railing here so just say I'll be playing this over winter!
  14. Have SMB BB on the Wii... installed onto a USB stick with a bunch of other games its great. Almost feels like a NG console using solid state to load things from! Not sure about the new one... have to look into what it offers over the Wii one...
  15. Wondering the same myself! I'm getting too old for this crap... probably shouldn't be even in this topic... but it is amusing at times...
  16. Far to much of a backlog to even worry about new releases to be honest! Given up looking at new releases.... Still have Ratchet and Clank and Returnal practically untouched on the PS5, then the Steam backlog... GamePass.... it goes on.... Although will obviously be spending a bit of time on Forza Horizon 5... because its on GamePass and its the only AAA arcade racer of note at the moment...
  17. A game is an interactive experience... actually I'd go as far as saying Electronic Interactive Entertainment- game is far to simple catch all term these days.... Wasn't it Edge that even coined the term "The Future Of Interactive Entertainment"... or something anyhow...
  18. Probably as its running on 4K with all the bells and whistles turned on. Surprising it makes it through testing though...
  19. Depends on what your view of "engaging" is of course.
  20. But then we get bland "cookie cutter" games that are so generic and formulaic.... There is room for all types of experiences I guess and we don't have to like everything. Finding this incredibly refreshing. Sure the mechanics are pure formulaic and to all intense and purposes its a basic platformer but its all in the delivery.... I go through stages of loving gaming then getting extremely tired of it. Then something like this pops up...like this.. or Gris... or Flower.... or Journey basic mechanics and simple premise but just great to chill too. See recently The Magnificent Trufflepigs too... which kind of also falls into this category for me.
  21. Think I'm realising I just don't have the time to put into this sadly - not enough to make online racing fun for me anyway. Sigh. Also the fact that I've been spoilt with VR too - just can't go back to wiggling sticks around to look around. Feels dated. I may pick this up again with GT7 and PSVR2 gets a release to see how it pans out but think I'll be staying in the PC side of racing. Thanks for all the words of encouragement and support but for now I bow out of the GT fold...
  22. Played over two hours more tonight. GLORIOUS experience. Loving every minute it. It's not a game. Its an audio visual art experience. Love how you can get creative with the guitar making tunes as you run and jump through the trips. Fantastic stuff. And this is why I love interactive entertainment! No other medium brings experiences like this to us! Well done Annapunra taking this onboard and Beethoven & Dinosaur for developing this. Oh finally MS for picking this up for GamePass a service that keeps giving.... Looking forward to exploring further trips.. going to drag this out as I don't want it to end.... One thing to add for anyone yet to experience this gem. WEAR EARPHONES. TURN UP THE VOLUME and ZONE OUT. This is not a game it's an EXPERIENCE.... Right... power down and jacking out....
  23. Indeed... not everyone's thing I guess...and everyones experience is personal to them. I'd say its a Interactive art experience... Much the same way Journey, Flower etc etc are. I like it...nice break from traditional games...
  24. Really? Runs buttery smooth on my ancient PC! (GTX 980ti based)...
  25. Same argument can be leveled at Nintendo. Lets not forget also that not everyone has been on the Playstation platform for as long as others so there might be actual new customers buying the first party titles for the first time. No harm in updating great games to experience at their best and take advantage of newer hardware.
