  1. Have you noticed at all that whenever you get off a vehicle, your field of view becomes squint? It's doing my head in.
  2. I noticed that and was tempted myself. But I also noticed that only some of the DLC is included. I think you still have to buy another three expanded maps at £5 a pop on top? All of which is more than you're getting with the base game on Game Pass, of course, but still.
  3. I gave 'theHunter: Call of the Wild' a try, expecting a janky, rough-looking old game. But it's really beautiful. The sense of desolation is very much my thing too. I feel like a Republican voter for even downloading it, and the entire trophy-hunting premise seems questionable enough to make me feel somewhat guilty for enjoying it, but it's something I can imagine myself spending a lot of time playing. I'm appreciating these tranquil, desolate games more than some of the big-name games I had my eye on before subscribing. Outer Wilds, Bard's Tale Trilogy, Lonely Mountains Downhill and now theHunter have eclipsed stuff like Rise of the Tomb Raider and Devil May Cry 5 for me. I'm queuing up What Remains of Edith Finch next.
  4. Man, PC cross saves is fantastic. But my main save is hostage on PS4. PS4 saves on Switch is never going to be a thing, is it?
  5. I've been doing a couple of loops a night for the last, what, two weeks now and it is just as enthralling as it was at the beginning. Almost every loop I make some revelation, or something fascinating happens. There've been lots of games over the years that have given the opportunity to piece stories together through exploration and puzzle-solving (from early 90s Myst to recent stuff like Gone Home), and there've been just as many games with fascinating worlds to explore, solid physics systems to play with and fun mechanics and controls to use in your travels. But it's very rare to play a game that does both so brilliantly. For my most recent loop, I indulged myself by
  6. Well, I'm not leaving this rickety ass old BT hub switched on for too long at a time. It's got to be over a decade old and is clogged with dust. I don't trust it for shit. Thankfully I'm getting fibre in April so we can all relax in a couple of months. Mark it in your calendars.
  7. I didn't realise it was such a weird thing to do. I thought most people went round switching everything off before they left the house but I guess not. I've also never had any problems with other consoles in this respect. The PS4 and Switch always resume downloads when I turn everything back on, as do Steam and GOG, I think. So does the Xbox, in fact, most of the time, and when it doesn't, it's because something has gone wrong. So, yeah, I shall continue to expect games consoles to resume downloads after breaks without power, and complain about them when they don't, particularly when some single file sizes are 100GB+ and BT broadband speeds here are under 5Mb/second (yes, that's 5 megabits - slooow).
  8. Typically the only things I leave on are my fridge and freezer. I'd switch those off if I could. I just don't like leaving electronic devices running unattended in case they malfunction and burn the place down.
  9. Almost every day, yeah.
  10. This Partbreaker bike is absolutely shite, what the hell. You barely graze a stone on the ground and you're thrown off your bike. And the challenge specific to this bike is to crash no more than six times and do it in the fastest time yet. What!
  11. The first bike you unlock is even more rickety than the starting bike! I want to do big drops, damn it. They're saving that for last, aren't they?
  12. The only thing I'm not sure about so far is the way new bikes are unlocked. Breaking bikes up into parts to unlock, and spreading them out across challenges on so many different trails, delays the opportunity to experiment with new bikes longer than I'd like. I keep spotting shortcuts on the trails that my Grasshopper has no chance of navigating (offroad sections or huge jumps, mostly) and it's a bit annoying having to move on without taking advantage of these alternative routes. Other than that, this is my new favourite game. I hadn't even heard of it until I saw it on Game Pass.
  13. Like, really amazing. Why is this thread only two pages long?
  14. Just did the first two trails off the back of reading this thread and, what the fuck, this is amazing.
  15. I didn't even make it through the tutorial.
