  1. I thought it was that there'd be a next-gen patch available at launch, which adds a little bit of shinies, but the full next-gen version (which will also be available as a free download) won't be available until next year?
  2. - Wake up - Check email - A dispatch email from Amazon! Yes! - Click order number in email - Oh.
  3. I remain unconvinced that the major existing IPs will go Xbox-exclusive, because if that was going to happen why wouldn't MS say so now? Console manufacturers are hardly backwards in shouting about their exclusives - I'm sure MS wouldn't be so cagey about the idea of Halo appearing on Playstation, or Sony about Uncharted on Xbox. For instance, here's a member of the Xbox team being unequivocal about Hellblade's exclusivity: If MS want people buying into Xbox or GamePass to get Bethesda games, now is the time to shout their exclusivity from the rooftops, because the prim
  4. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2020-11-17-microsoft-wants-bethesda-games-to-be-either-first-or-better-or-best-on-its-platforms A bit more clarity from Microsoft on what their intentions are, and it sounds like Xbox exclusivity is probably not on the cards:
  5. I've been assuming that the silence around Last of Us 2 is either because there's a PS5 patch due some point next year, that they might push during a fallow period, or because there'll be full-blown remaster, like for the first game. Hopefully the former, but who knows?
  6. Not until it lets me play Outrun 2 again.
  7. Or alternatively, they haven't made a blanket decision and genuinely will decide on a case by case basis. I expect there will be some, maybe even most, Bethesda games that are Xbox exclusive, but I don't see any reason to believe that the odd one won't show up on other platforms. And the interpretation of Microsoft's statements about the situation seem entirely at odds with how statements about exclusivity are normally read. If a publisher says "we're not talking about other platforms right now, but it's definitely out on platform x" the default interpretation is that the game almo
  8. I've pre-ordered because most of my favourite games this gen have been Sony exclusives, and I haven't seen any exclusives from Microsoft that pique my interest. If I couldn't play God of War 2, or the next Naughty Dog game, I'd really feel like I was missing out. Nothing MS has shown makes me feel like that. I get that GamePass is a fantastic deal. There's no denying that. But the reality is, I've been subscribed for the past 12 months and only spent meaningful time with a couple of games on there. Unlike in my 20s, when I'd have eagerly consumed dozens of them, I'm now in a situat
  9. Everyone: "I'm worried Sony are going to go crazy with PS3-style pricing again." Sony: "Actually, it's in the same price range as the Xbox." Everyone: "Well done Sony! So what can you do to compete with Ga—" Sony: "WORK A SECOND JOB TO AFFORD A GAME."
  10. Went £349/449, but I think £100 is too big a gap between the machines, and £349 is optimistic. So suspect it will actually be £379/449.
  11. To be fair, that is the correct reaction to all versions of Gran Turismo.
  12. I'm a little way into Act II now, and it's definitely picked up considerably, both action- and looks-wise. There is something I'm slightly confused about, that may have been explained in a cutscene I didn't pay enough attention to: is the only way to get between the north and south islands to fast travel? I tried going via Castle Kaneda, but the gates were shut even though I've liberated it.
  13. I don't really see the comparison between this and BoTW, beyond the generally green, slightly painter-ly look. The thing that made BoTW great for exploring was the fact you could see way into the distance, pick a landmark, then have fun navigating your way there, with confidence that there'd be something interesting at the end. In this, you usually can't see more than about 10 metres in front of you, so that doesn't apply.
  14. What’s the best approach for combat in this before you’ve got all the stances unlocked? I’ve got water now, and it makes a massive difference when fighting shield users, but against spear holders and brutes I tend to end up running round, mashing buttons and hoping for the best, especially when almost all their attacks are unblockable. I feel like I’m missing something, because it makes the fights frustrating and messy, and I’m often getting through more by luck than judgement.
