  1. I’m slightly concerned at these ‘perimeter security’ devices at building sites in the city centre, why do they make me think of half life 2’s sentry guns . do I need to bring my crowbar to work?

    Microsoft & Sony sitting in a tree...

    It’s certainly a win for 3rd party / small publishers. They can probably release online / cloud games for both platforms with a tick box for each console, surely that’s good news for them to keep prices down.

    Human Fall Flat

    My kids started playing this on gamepass because he looked funny. They love it, they are both under 8 but have picked up the basic mechanics and have even finished the fist few levels themselves and run about laughing their heads off half the time at the ragdoll animations. We sat and did the construction level on Saturday and it was high 5's all round after it. They replayed the level themselves yesterday morning and were very chuffed. Its a great game to get passed the 'mummy police' as its puzzle solving once they get passed the humour

    Xbox "Scarlett" - next gen consoles

    Id like the performance edition to have 2tb please Mr Klobrille
  5. I just mean some kinda cpu overclock enough to scale up. I guess I don’t really care as I use an X. But a nice small diskless model for bedroom would be nice.
  6. It’s a shame they couldn’t do a spec bump to at least match the PS4 in performance / target 1080p. Putting this out with the intention of it having a few years shelf life seems an opportunity missed to make it the base model going forward . Plus it should indeed be smaller and cheaper. It’s a bit disappointing.

    Battlefield V

    I liked firestorm - it feels so slow coming off the back of Apex but i got more kills last night in the last 3 weeks of playing Apex so im feeling positive. Plus a squad win with the Adrenalin pumping, the final circle was 1-1 my squadmate and another guy - the other guy got burned in the fire - its pretty mental at that stage! I liked the map. Overall it feels like a slicker PUBG.
  9. No, Xbox. Maybe the smaller player pool are more talented
  10. I think I need a break. I’ve played 25 hours, had 2 wins and many, many, many rounds with 0 kills. I play with mates only, all older dudes but we play smart enough but when it comes to combat we just get dropped too easy. We actually get a fair amount of 2nd place finishes but can never do the business. I’m disappointed but the frustration is overtaking the fun. Yet in BF5 when we play we do really well and an swing a map by teamwork. Looking forward to trying firestorm, maybe it just suits better.
  11. I love the game but still finding it very hard. I play with other ‘average older gamers’ so we are shite aim but reasonably sensible and get to the last 2 often. We just shit ourselves then and get wiped out lots, regardless if in good defensive positions or whatever. Personally I seem to panic in the last 2 and mess up shields, smoke, reloading or whatever. Can’t seem to stay calm and only 2 wins under my belt. But the speed into next game and smoothness keep me playing!

    Metro Exodus - First on the Epic Store

    I'm really enjoying it, heading towards the end of winter myself. The game play appeals to me, I like narrative shooters in the Half Life vein. Yet I can still go off from the story for a while and explore and fight monsters I don't like fully open world games in the ubisoft mould as i get overwhelmed with trying to do everything and it begins to feel like a tickbox exercise. I think they'd make a great Half Life episode if valve ever outsource.

    Minecraft - Better Together update now available

    My kids have played creative for a year now and still aren't bored! They're building bigger and better things! We have now started a survival map and they now understand crafting much better and get a real kick out of it.

    Metro Exodus - First on the Epic Store

    I’ve just finished the first few intro hours and it’s opened up at Volga. Instead of following Anna I’ve went off piste exploring. It was fun and scary! But I’m assuming I’m coming to places that will feature in the story, am I better just following her and doing some light exploring during that? Note that I’m a time sensitive gamer who likes narrative
