  1. We'll just leave that one right there Xbox update - has now been switched on but Switch still favoured.
  2. So cool watching everybody's reaction to this game, I jumped in on early access day 1 and was amazed at how playable and polished it was even back then. I have to admit I haven't touched it for several months so now it has released I must dip back in. Be sure to watch the NoClip documentaries for the making of too, they are a really good developer to listen to. If you enjoyed the Building a Bastion documentary from GiantBomb all those years ago then this is basically the same thing. Part 1 is here -
  3. I think minecraft dungeon and Hellblade are the only ones at the moment. Apparently Gears5 touch controls are being tested as well. Just tried Hellblade and it doesn't have touch, so seemingly just Minecraft dungeon at the mo!
  4. This is what I was raising yesterday but shot down. I just don't buy that the S will maintain good performance especially when the generation kicks in properly - either that or the X will never get to its full potential as developers always have to consider the baseline console. This would mean the X is more likely to achieve 4K 60, but in reality I wonder how long it'll be before developers would rather drop the resolution and go back to 30fps in order to achieve better graphical effects, essentially do what they can to keep up with the PC side, leaving the S with a much lower framerate and\o
  5. Well just assuming obviously, but it's inevitable isn't it? How long before a Digital Foundry video shows a game running well on X but not on S?
  6. Looks ideal for us but need to see some comparisons, either this is the real next gen (ie the Series X is compromised) or this is going to struggle to run things well. Should be interesting!
  7. Haven't tried it again to be honest, I introduced the household to Breath of the Wild on the Switch and the Xbox hasn't been switched on since!
  8. A couple from Dartmoor at the weekend, handheld jobs whilst on a walk.
  9. If you are in Skye then the Old Man of Storr is a must, the view is breathtaking. The path to the 'classic' viewpoint is pretty easy to follow now but even walking through the sanctuary (the fingers pointing out of the ground) is incredibly atmospheric. Honestly, the walk isn't that much either if you take your time, have water, snacks and appropriate clothing... but get there early as parking can get tight later in the day (pic from 'classic' viewpoint - https://www.petejohns.photography/Gallery/Scotland/i-RmkHsSM/A) The Quiraing is incredible too but the walk is a little more challengin
  10. The whole game is broken for me (XBO) - was fine for the first ten hours or so but we get a hard system lockup when trying to change car. Bit frustrating as my lad quite wants to try the hotwheels DLC but no point in buying it if the game doesn't work!
  11. Getting it to work on Shadow is a bit of a pain in the backside but it is possible. Once you get your virtual PC up and running you have to make sure it's on the very latest windows update, which is at least two major updates from the image they provide. It takes a few hours and multiple restarts. I put this on their official forum as the steps I had to take to get Flight Sim to work: NTFS install bug from Microsoft store - https://www.reddit.com/r/ShadowPC/comments/h0pifp/xbox_game_pass_and_ntfs_error_workaround/ Have removed lots of games but still not en
  12. So I'm sat at my kitchen on a fairly under-spec'd laptop (for gaming at least), streaming* MS Flight Sim at ultra settings over wifi on a fairly average connection, flying over my hometown and in realtime - real time! - playing with lighting and cloud levels in order to get some nice pics. First 'next gen' moment I've had since first experiencing VR. Wow. *I'm using the basic package of ShadowPC. I haven't tried going to a more populated area yet but the framerate is holding up pretty well so far. (Game is running at 1080P with everything on Ultra, I've lowered t

    Xbox Game Pass

    Quick question - my lad plays a lot of Forza Horizon 4 via Gamepass on XBO. If I upgraded to the Ultimate edition will it apply to my Gamepass download? It's on sale at the moment and seems pretty good value. https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/p/forza-horizon-4-ultimate-add-ons-bundle/9p7jj1fkqwxh?activetab=pivot:overviewtab
  14. I'm not getting very far with this >_< Getting stuck on the Install button from the Gamepass app ! I am using ShadowPC though which is no doubt causing issues (I've created a new volume to solve the NTFS error) but so far no joy. Edit - looks like I'm well behind on windows updates...despite checking for windows updates multiple times!
  15. I also have Shadow and getting nowhere fast. I've created a thread on their forums to see if any help comes along. Didn't know about the gamepass install issue, certainly hadn't been an issue for me in the past with Shadow but I very rarely use it. The limited disk space is a killer though, despite the 256gb drive even if I remove everything non-residential I'm still quite anyway off being able to install it. There doesn't appear to be a way to buy more space at the moment either... Very close to cancelling and then renew when cyberpunk comes out.
