    Picked up Ruiner for around three quid in the sale. Very slick twin-stick shooter, looks absolutely lovely and very satisfying to play.



    Yeah I stumbled across it when it was on Game Pass and was very pleasantly surprised as to how good a game it was.

    I make it £80 for 2 years, or is there a better deal?

    Apologies, turns out it was indeed 2 years that he got and it was nearer £90 than £80 too!!

    Think I'll load up on gamepass with the money I've saved using the upgrade for £1 trick if it still works


    It worked for a frined of mine just yesterday (coming in at £80 for 3 years!) so hopefully you'll be fine :)

  6. I'm ok with them to a point but when it all gets a bit busy I find myself flapping a little and then next thing, dead! 


    No too sure why it is but I seem to have a real peripheral vision problem with this game alone in keeping a bit of an eye on the health bar, with me often dying just because I haven't topped it up! I'm not too fussed about losing the bone I've acquired but having to play again for a while to get a few decent spite perks is a bit grrrrrrr.


    All that said I'm still enjoying it, though the first main boss is proving to be quite a challenge in particular as I've go there in angry moon mode and don't have any Glands left to appease it! I managed to get it's health bar down into it's final third a couple of times last night, tonight it WILL fall :)!!!

    Yep, that's the same point I stopped.

    I've just started Moonscars, also on Gamepass, but I think I need to remap the controls as it's little fiddly.


    I started it mid last week and I'm finding the controls a little tricky too. 


    Did you remap them and find it made things any better?

    Do you have to go through any kind of app or specific page to get the points for these, or will bring logged in and "watching" them do? Another couple of tabs for my Rewards browser window.


    Am I missing anything?


    As an aside, I've ended up playing and really enjoying a couple of games that I only initially played for points. Namely Killer Instinct, Taiko Drum Master and Sniper Elite. So it's been worth doing, even beyond the points I get. 


    No I've just been working my way through them by clicking on a couple of them each morning and it's been giving me the points. 


    Nope, as far as I can see you're doing pretty much the same as me, so I'm guessing you too are probably pulling in somewhere around 22k to 25k a month, great isn't it!


    And yes, I've also found a good few games that I was initially playing just for points / easy achievements to be unexpectedly enjoyable to the point that I've stuck with them. The same can be said for some that I played to complete the weekly / monthly quests too with me just earlier this week being prompted to play (the so far superb) Inside :).

    I got to 530 something, then I forgot to do the This or That one day.


    Oh I can relate to that.....




    Yup! After seeing the banner yesterday and posting it on here, it would seem that I didn't return to complete my daily streak :facepalm:!


    To be honest I'm not as annoyed with myself as much as I'd thought I'd be and the streak will be back up to it's full points earning potential in just a few weeks, but still, me:






  11. There's a new rewards thingy up today titled "Spooky season is here" for a very quick and easy 150 (I think, may have been 100) pts:




    Also there's another easy 40 a day to be had by watching a couple of fitness videos (20pts ea). You can work your way through this list (spoilered as it's q long) or the link bellow.

    Namco Museum Arcade Pac is on sale for £4.85 - can anybody confirm that it has ALL the content from Namco Museum? I basically just want to have Galaga and Galaga 88 on Switch. Anything else is a bonus!

    These are the Arcade Pac titles:


    Dig Dug


    Galaga '88


    Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus

    Pac-Man Vs.

    Rolling Thunder

    Rolling Thunder 2

    Sky Kid


    Tank Force

    Tower of Druaga


  13. Bloody hell that's a bit of a good deal isn't it!!


    I've already got a 1TB one, and with my 500mb BB downloading 90% of games in minutes it's hard to argue that I need one but bargains pull at my purse strings like you wouldn't believe!!


    I think I'd best go play a game and if "buy a 2TB card, go on do it" thoughts resurface (they will) I might be best off instead thinking what else I can spend £266 on!!

    How's the Switch performance with this? I might finally pick it up.


    Pretty sure I remember it getting quite a slating on the performance side of things pre release / early days but that some early patches made some pretty big improvements. Not too sure as to how it ended up so you might want to have a bit more of a read up on it before taking the plunge. 

    Edit: just took a quick look for my own curiosity and sadly it doesn’t sound great:

    As far as I’ve read it also doesn’t pop if you own the game so someone’s messed up. I expect it’ll be sorted for a compatible game in the next day or so. 

    Nice one, I did wonder if perhaps someone had just cocked it up :).


  16. Treasure is up on the dash today :).


    Also in what is a first (as far as I can remember, and it could well be a mistake) one of the weekly “play” quests that’s gone up today is The Artful Escape. As good a game as it is, it left Game Pass a few weeks ago and I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m not gonna splash £16 on it for 25 points :wacko:

    Think that might be one to avoid because of lag in the Saturn emulator, unless it's been patched up sufficiently? I think M2 are releasing a version of it in a triple pack later, which I'd guess will be better, but also maybe not suitable as it'll probably be more expensive and maybe ps4 and switch only.



    Thanks for that, I did see that there was apparently some lag issue on the Switch version though some said they found it just fine. I did also when digging around this  morning see that there's a Switch demo so I've downloaded that to see if I feel it's OK though in truth I suppose that doesn't really guarantee anything either way on the Xbox version.


    I'll try the switch demo later tonight and see how I get on / if I notice it at all but the more I think about it, the more I think I'm best just heading up into the loft and dusting off / setting up my J Saturn and the copy that I've got for that :)
