    Mortal Kombat X

    Now this is on gamepass anyone playing for the first time? I picked up XL a few months back and there has been renewed interest online. Some great King of the Hill matches to be had over the past few days.

    Race The Sun

    Apologies if there is a topic for this already but I did a search and couldn't find it. As many of you will have seen this was free the other month on Games with Gold. It wasn't even on my radar but I have to say it is an addictive wee score attack style game. It's a simple concept in that you control a solar powered flying machine and as the sun is constantly going down. Once it's gone the game ends. You must race through the levels and pick up items to raise your score multiplier bit there are obsticles everywhere and as you progress through the regions they become harder to avoid. There are ways of extending your playing time like picking up boosts and using warps but even then you are up against it. As you get better you unlock more power ups and skills and also higher starting multipliers for your score as well as different modes (including the harder than hard "apocalypse mode". One very interesting aspect of the game is that it changes slightly everyday and the map seems to randomise for each level. The themes for each level broadly stay the same but the layout will be switched about and positioning of the pickups and warps change. If you haven't given it a spin then I'd urge you to give it a shot. No game lasts more than a few minutes and it's uber competitive as scores of others on your friends list appear in the sky as you pass them in game. I'm keen for extra buddies on my leadeboard as there only seems to be three on my friends list who actually play it!

    Ever been totally hooked on one game?

    Over the years I must have put hundreds of hours into Street Fighter games specifically Turbo and more recently Street Fighter 4 and its various enchantments. Other than that some of the online modes on the glory days of Call of Duty titles on the Xbox 360 ate up a fair amount of time. This year I know I have put over 80 hours into Forza Horizon 4. That game sucked me in more than any other recently.

    Splatoon 2

    Is there much in this for a child to play in single player? My eight year old daughter fancied the first for her Wii U but she is getting a Switch for Christmas so considered this.

    Best to tell them to check themselves. It's their bloody system!

    Dreamcast is now 20 (in Japan)

    I remember buying on when it was declared "dead" and got the console, vmu, keyboard, msr, jet set radio and chu chu rocket for 99 quid. Also picked up crazy taxi and dead or alive 2 at the same time and bloody loved it. Even though I have sold my dreamcast I still fondly remember playingoads of ace arcade conversions and Capcom fighters and thanks to a boot disc I had a fair amount of import games like typing of the dead and sega sports jam.

    Xbox One backwards compatibility - Server Runtime Error

    Oddly I have a copy of The Bureau that I have never started. Got it for 2.50 in Asda a few years back. Maybe the perfect time to give it a spin!

    Crash Team Racing Remake (rumour)

    Crash Team Racing never clicked with me. I always saw It as a poor man's Mario Kart and I was genuinely surprised to see that it seems to be held in high regard.

    Games with Gold for Christmas 2018

    I'm usually positive about "freebies" but I'm not a huge puzzle fan. Having two in the same month is a bit poor. Never got on with Dragon Age either.

    I'm going along to this Escape From New York as well. Very excited for it on the big screen

    Last game that you couldn't put down?

    Forza Horizon 4 for me. Haven't played a game this much in such a short space of time for ages. I'm over 70 hours now and still playing!

  14. Yup. I found it very unstable and your shots don't always connect even if your aim is perfect. The world constantly breaks up as you move and as for that area which turns "toxic" without much notice...
