  1. That's fine. I basically paid that plus £15 for costco membership, so I'm happy.
  2. Thanks Nige! I did exactly this with Richer Sounds (I did need to join costco and show Richer sounds evidence, but that was fine). I now join the people who can boast about their OLED. I've been waiting years for them to be small enough to fit in the space. And then when they arrived this year £1400 was too rich for my blood, but £700 is much more reasonable.
  3. The LG C2 is now available in 42” but it’s not cheap.
  4. Still worked a week or so ago according to the thread so you should be safe.
  5. In a way you only need what you’re personally playing right now, as the S is a one person machine for me, and with the “Home Xbox” limitations I guess the rest of the family would have no luck anyway. But yes, it’s very tight. I would have said the X didn’t have enough space before I experienced this!
  6. I have an X in the lounge and recently bought an S for the office from the trading folder, and I’m delighted with it. Just as good really. These are the main reasons to have an X: It supports 4K. I think I can tell I have a lower spec machine as I’m sat so close to my monitor with my S. The X supports the high resolution modes in the backward compatible games. (See this Resetera thread ) the disk space is pretty constrained on the S. As flight simulator is enormous, I’ve only got that, some emulators and 3 other games on there. The expansion SSD is like £180. If that’s a problem may as well have an X from the start. Set against that the S is small and lovely on my desk. I like the restrained design of my X under my telly but it can’t hide its bulk up close. *EDIT* forgot to mention S is digital only!
  7. The good thing about casting Debicki is she got to add to her oeuvre as the first choice actor if you ever need someone to look sad with their bad husband on a superyacht in the Med. (The Night Manager, Tenet, The Crown). Of the three you’d have thought in this one she’d be the least at risk of being killed, but… I’m hoping for guest appearances on the next series of Succession and as Steve Coogan’s wife in The Trip.
  8. Anything that’s Xbox compatible I should be leaping on in the sale as a beginner?
  9. I watched The Game (1997) today. Michael Douglas’ dad, who appears in the flashback scenes that looks like the credits from Succession and who commits suicide by jumping off the roof of his mansion, landing in a bloody mess in front of the young Douglas, is played by Charles Martinet. That guy loves jumping.
  10. Now I like to think that I would only go to bat for actually good, clever movies that critics of taste would concur with, but I’m here to tell you not to go popping off on me when I recommend the 42% on rotten tomatoes Den of Thieves with Gerard Butler, Master Chief, 50 Cent and Ice Cube Jr. It happily rips off Heat, Inside Man and everything else you love, but doesn’t worry too much about a lot of the boring stuff De Niro and Pacino would claim is important, and instead fires way more bullets than them. It’s a lot of fun.
  11. I'm primarily not interested in them for nostalgia. For me it's mostly stuff I haven't got around to yet, or started and haven't got closed to finishing. Then a stray thought or a podcast makes me think about the game, and when I want to play it I want to play it in the best form available to me. Whether that's a remake, a remaster, or Xbox magic I don't really care, I just pop on a forum like this, someone will say which version is the good one, I play that one, not particularly caring if it's 20 years old or 20 days old.
  12. @YasawasI found .cia files for the GBA games I wanted fairly easily online, so I didn’t need to find a way to run the Windows injection tool myself.
  13. It looks like it is available on Series S, but not Xbox One.
  14. Yeah, this episode was a real treat. Congratulations big lads.
