    Rock Band 4

    I dunno man, initially I was like that, I was genuinely gutted when I first tried one and realised that's how most of them work, I switched it off hugely disappointed and then went on a download spree of only the multitrack tunes. Then last night I had another go on a load of the non-multitrack customs and had a blast, if you set a difficulty that means you don't miss as many ie: hard iinstead of expert, then I found I I actually didn't really notice it. I mean, it makes a noise if you hit the wrong note or strum at the wrong time which helps and my wife remarked she enjoyed it more because she could just listen to the song without important notes not sounding when I screw up. Not ideal but more than acceptable in my opinion, considering the library on offer.

    Rock Band 4

    Update on my continued Rock Band revival and it's fairly significant and epic - Pro Drums and CUSTOM SONGS (OMG!!!!11!1), LOADS OF CUSTOM SONGS. Found a 3 cymbal RB3 pack and wireless beatles drums set for £100 to go alongside the full Beatles Rock Band kit I bought (basically new) fror £150, and the cymbals really do add another dimension and makes the kit look awesome too. Loving it. I also got myself a 360 (With Rb Green Day, Beatles and AC/DC as well as RB1 and 3) and on looking into 3 a little more I found it was super easy to run customs on the 360 and sure enough it was a piece of piss and I now have a huge setlist of incredible content. Eveything is authored and created with real care and passion and is incredbly fun to play with a MASSIVE variety amongst the thousands of customs available - I had no idea this was a thing but I'm super glad I do now. Incredible scenes and well worth jumping back in if peeps can get up and running on RB3 on 360 easily enough.

    Rock Band 4

    Bit the bullet and sourced a new legacy adapter and a basically new Xbox 360 Beatles band set for £260 which felt decent even though it's clearly expensive, there should be resell in both though so that helped justify it. My first RB on XBox and now I'm set I'm hoping to buy all the 360 games so I can play the whole series again on 360 alongside RB4 on the One with the same instruments. The driver behind my recent obsession with getting back into RB is my 6 year old daughter who is mad about RB4, like I used to be with everything up to RB3. Seeing her singing There's No Other Way while I'm on the guitar is awesome and it's an experience I never had before as my wife and i never used to sing or even play multiplayer, it was usually just me playing. It genuinely is a fantastic party game and perfect for our blossoming gaming partnership (she legit beat me on Mario Kart for the first time not long ago!). Since RB first came out I've started playing real drums too so this will be an opportunity for my daughter to get her head around some the concepts before she uses my kit for real. It's been a totally overpriced headfuck to get to where I am again now but I'm pleased I did it. I've had to move from my previous RB dlc, instruments and game exports on ps3 (basically i had everything you could export) because i stopped using my PS4 on account of how loud it is, and the whole thing has set me back the best part of 500 but it feels like a new experience again and that's really nice after all those years of Rock Band loving and subsequent years where I forgot all about it. Tl;dr I needed RB in my life and it's not a cheap game to have a sudden desire to play on a new system but very happy to be up to date.

    Rock Band 4

    Guys, really long shot but does anyone have a legacy adapter for Xbox that they'd be willing to let go of for a semi reasonable sum? Failing that an Xbox One drum kit or band in a box they want rid of? I know it's very unlikely but any help hugely appreciated. Thanks.

    The Spurs Thread

    Joking aside, I can't see us losing tbh. Maybe we'll see Dier take a staring role on Saturday too, JM is a big admirer.

    The Spurs Thread

    I was all for Poch going, it was clearly stale and a fair amount of it was his doing. 5 and a half years is a lot of time and we never really looked like winning anything seriously, although he did give us a glimpse of what it could be like. I wasn't up for Mourinho massively, like most people I was tired of how he behaved in his most recent jobs but I know deep down although it's the polar opposite of what Spurs would typically do, I think that's what the club needs - everything is in place bar a winning mentality. Thankfully it was a great press conference today, some of it gave me goosebumps and Jose was great, very relaxed and behaving with a bit of class. He also looked far happier than his most recent first press conference at Man U. The box office draw of the man has meant the last few days has been utter madness but I'm now fully onboard and can't wait to lose 1-0 to West Ham on Saturday.

    Dirt Rally 2.0

    Dirt 2.0 was a mess IMO, WRC8 is great and has wonderful tracks but it's not as sim like although the handling and ffb in Dirt is weird. The new locations in Dirt were really poor and lacklustre In their design but you do now have all the DR1 tracks... Honestly I thought DR2 was a major letdown but I love WRC as it's more fun. Then again I played WRC 5, 6 and 7 which people hate, and thought they were fun, so don't listen to me.
  8. Thanks for the invite last night, sorry I had to ignore it but 2 mates dropped by and saw the wheel setup and wanted to try it themselves, then we stuck it in VR and then I had to give them the VR guided tour which takes a while. They loved it but I didn't get a chance to play last night and I was quite gutted. How do I get involved in the TT being discussed, @Junker do I just add you?
  9. Righto chaps, cleared it with the missus, have my wheel set up and have been playing this a lot the last 2 days (although I'm nothing special). @PeteBrant, @mexos, feel free to add me (PDogg) and should be good to play tonight
  10. Might be able to join at 9.30, will you still be on?
  11. "You're not in my plans" most probably.
  12. Labyrinth definitely stands the test of time, my 5 year old loves it (and so do I).
  13. I'd be up for a TT although I'll have to look into it needing PS+, which I don't have..
  14. Want to say thanks to Rushy for giving us DC, easily my most played and loved game ever. Made loads of friends playing it, a genuinely wonderful community and a game so beautifully crafted it's still a sight to behold. Sadly it was never able to shake the early issues. Such a shame. DC forever.

    Trials Rising

    Really enjoying the riding in this but holy cow the grind is awful - playing it with my 5 year old daughter who loves it but rather than grind for the harder tracks as I would we're actually just looking for all the squirrels which she thinks is fantastic. More au faix with the world map now but just having to grind to level 48 hoping it'll open the harder tracks is putting me off.
  16. Was having trouble but kept hitting A on the tile in my apps and eventually it just loaded. I've done the tutorial and it seems cool enough, the grainy style might not be to everyone's taste but a welcome addition to GamePass
  17. I've had this, it slows down then goes in fast forward for a sec, usually after pausing. Annoying but rare thankfully.
  18. Finding it hard to chose between Performance or Quality.. I thought 60fps would be the winner, and while it is wonderful to play FH in 60fps, the 4k resolution is so stunningly awesome that the 30fps is actually bearable just to have the graphical fidelity the 4k mode brings (HOLY MOLY those car models!) I keep switching and both sides have pros but for the first time ever the 4k resolution is so insanely good that I find myself preferring that over 1080 60. Thoughts? EDIT - Brand new Xbox One X has crashed 4 times playing this game which is really annoying, hope it's not a sign of things to come Aside from that, amazing game and incredible console. My PS4 Pro is so horrendous to have on (noise) that the X is like a breath of fresh air.
  19. Still falling short on numbers for these challenges, come on peeps give them a go
  20. Watch my drift video and keep trying dude Sometimes just turning the car starts the drift, no handbrake required, then you have to balance it and retain speed coming out of the drift.
  21. Will do buddy, sorry about the car I thought these would be fine!
  22. Challenges picking up pace now, bring it on on the drift Neil!! I'll post up a drift video soon in case it helps anyone
  23. New challenges sent, let me know if anyone didn't receive them , it's a long process ticking everyone off a huge list so I might have missed someone. Good luck!
  24. Cool beans I will probably send them out tomorrow at some point, a TT and drift challenge
