  1. I saw this video and this game has really piqued my interest. Seems like something actually different. On gamepass from the 28th too. Edit: another video here: https://youtu.be/iD-eMNAAt1U
  2. The guy who does music for Remedy is amazing, definitely one of the best bits of AW and remarkably unsung. I met him at a composer's conference a few years ago and had lunch with him. I couldn't quite believe it.
  3. I'm thinking about buying some batteries. Any tips? I got some from Amazon and they seem pretty good, but I'm not sure if there are better ones or not out there.
  4. Just get the 1tb card bought next time it's available at a discount. I definitely would not suggest buying slower storage since you'll only end up buying the official card later on anyway and then you'll be left with a hard drive you don't really want or end up leaving connected so you can have even more games on hand to not play. If Microsoft are putting out a smaller card so they can sell at a lower price, that tells you the cost of storage is not changing very quickly.
  5. I don't want to sound like a broken record, but this really feels like bad form from Remedy. This really does look like the kind of upgrade that has been given away for free by other companies. Actually, it looks less comprehensive than the upgrades that have been given away by other companies. I've bought this game a couple of times already, including the dlc and spinoff game but I don't think I want to suppprt this. It's one of my favourite games. I reckon they could have given this remaster to existing owners for free, got some goodwill and charged new players to recoup the costs involved and it would have kept everyone happy. Alternatively, they could have done a proper job of bringing AW up to date which I'd have been happy to buy. AW has some really passionate fans and Remedy themselves speak of their love for the character and game (s), but this remaster doesn't really marry up with that. As is, it'll come as no surprise that this is a no from me.
  6. Quickly, someone start complaining about DRM and then someone else tell them about the home console setting. Then someone ask about cheap gamepass.
  7. It's been like that forever, even on Xbox One for me, I've never noticed it being closely linked to a particular event like your achievements, but that is interesting. I wonder if I'll notice something now. If it is related to things running in the background, I wonder if it's linked to those progress meters in games updating? I wonder if games where you have unlocked all the achievements are breakup free.
  8. Reward Points' conversion rate (£=5850 points) is very disappointing, I just did the calculation, it looks like I've got £110, but I've only got £90. I'm holding on for a new Elite Controller and hoping they release a V3 when I've got the right number of points. I'd totally cash in what I've got and grab a Halo version of the V2 if they had any stock... but they don't. So weird how poor they are at stocking things I want to buy, but excellent at offering stuff I don't want.
  9. I think that is a crucial difference, I've got used to games getting resolution and framerate boosts for free and I have the game installed on the console connected to my TV already. Through that lens, it feels a bit underwhelming, but for those who haven't played this before or can't currently and would like to, it's great news. Also, Alan Wake is one of my favourite games ever, so it's great to see that Remedy are clearly signalling that AW2 is on the agenda.
