  1. I still have the physical copy for the Xbox 360 (doesn't work in Xbox Series X unfortunatly) and had kind of forgotten about it. This write up makes me want to revisit it soon as I don't think I played past 2 or 3 hours.
  2. Yeah I have tried a good few of them and have been mostly good. I just have reservations as I know these ones are brewed especially for Tesco, so may not be quite as good as normal.
  3. I'm finding the same in that a lot of the newest wave of supermarket beers are really underwhelming. I find it especially so for anything that has a higher abv. I feel there is a lot of corner cutting from breweries to make it within the low price that I expect the supermarkets buy it for. Markies stuff has been the pick of the bunch recently, in particular Gose to Hollywood from To Øl, which I thought was way nicer than anything I've had from Asda and Tesco of late, although I do have a couple of bottles of the Vault City sours from Tesco in reserve and I have high hopes for those.
  4. It loads faster on the Series X than the one X but it's not so pronounced as from the standard Xbox One.
  5. I personally don't rate the S at all. While it's a nice budget option and a sleek little machine it's pretty much a downgrade from a One X. I came from a One X to a Series X and tbh there isn't a lot on it (with the software that is available atm). If my One X hadn't decided to slowly die on me I'd still be happily playing on that and I wouldn't have missed out on much so far.
  6. I played Civilisation Revolution on my Xbox Series X tonight and it's improved performance for sure on this 360 title. Animations are smoother and faster, and the loading when "space events" take place is a genuine massive boost to the pace of the game. This was a Xbox 360 fave of mine for a few years and it is amazing to see the same game I have played hundreds of times with these wee upgrades.
  7. Finished the game tonight. That last water tank section was a stinker, but otherwise enjoyable and harks back to the horror titles of the 90's. I quite enjoyed the relative straightforwardness of the whole thing. I think the constant obsession in modern gaming with large maps and sandbox gameplay makes this more simplistic title a treat in the present climate.
  8. I have had a couple of sessions on this game think I'm around half way through. Usually story based games with little action aren't my cup of tea, but I'm suitably motivated to keep going with this one. I fully agree the shit stealth can do one, but even my clumsy non stealthy disposition has manged to get through these sections so far. I really like the atmosphere and the setting of the game, and part of that is the fact it's Poland based, which is pretty unique in my experience. No section has out stayed it's welcome so far and the sound design (as others have commented) really
  9. I feel much like the OP does about Gradius 5, with Streets of Rage 4. Never did I expect it to be so finely balanced between a new experience and pleasing the nostalgia crowd. The developers obviously love the series and you can see the care and effort in everything from the graphics to the music, the characters and the general atmosphere of the game, as well as the easter eggs and unlockables. I just wish that all other reboots/sequels had as much passion apparent in them.
  10. Tropico 4 is an absolute classic. I havent heard of the Xbox one games, but they both look interesting.
  11. Mine arrived today which was superfast, and I don't even have Prime delivery. Gave them a wee shottie on Streets of Rage 4, and The Medium, and I have to say they seem solid. They are comfy, sound good, and make me feel like I'm the Bo Selcta Craig David. I havent tried the mic yet but for 14 quid I really cannot complain.
  12. I too watched Mortal Kombat tonight. Great opening, but it's pretty trashy overall. Kano is great, but the main guy is a charisma vacuum. The gore levels are pleasing and if your a fan of the games (like me) there is LOADS of fan service and references to the various titles. The cast are lacking overall, the budget is obviously quite low and Goro looks like Shrek after a Puregym membership. Unfortunatly this films future is destined for ITV2 (heavily edited) at 10.40pm every Tuesday night. A generous 3 (flaming) Skulls out of 5, but if you are
  13. Cheers for that. I've just ordered a pair too. Checked out some YouTube reviews and they are well respected for something in the $35 bracket, so for 14 quid they seem a steal!
  14. Eh?? I understood these were 4 unique Cloudwater x minority brewed beers (albeit by Brewdog) that wouldn't be available seperately.
