  1. Really rather keen on the look of this; cross Zelda with a 3D platformer. Should really wait for it to inevitably in the epic game store sale in a few months though
  2. Pretty sure they can’t use the phone app as they don’t have Gamepass in their own right but when logged into their account on the Xbox they will see and be able to download all Gamepass games as normal if it is set as the home Xbox for an account with Gamepass (even when that account is not signed in). (this actually also works on a second Xbox providing it is online and the main account is also signed in. Any other accounts on the console can see all the games and download them as long as the Gamepass owning account is also signed in. So my kids can play on both Xbox’s at the same time playing Gamepass games (although I couldn’t log in and play anything on a third Xbox, but interestingly I can play PC Gamepass games when they are both on).
  3. Feels like a Halo game....Halo 5 really didn't I'll admit I'm in the minority in that I think that Halo 4 is great (i actually think its better than 2 and Reach) but I thought Halo 5 was a the weakest game in the series by a ridiculous amount
  4. Halo 4 was great Its Halo 5 which is the low bar it needs to beat
  5. So loaded this up for the first time in a fortnight on my new laptop (GTX 3060, I7 11800) and threw up to every thing to max as you do with sexy new hardware. And OMFG this game is stunning with the twiddly bits on. I thought it was very pretty on my old 1060 set up but on ultra and with the DLSS and the ray tracing on it is absolutely gorgeous. Its still a little basic as a game and with major design oddities but god it looks amazing. And I still maintain its a lot of fun
  6. Oh two Tvs and playing at the same time - I get it now (and yeah I remember - that front room would have put my other half into a trauma based coma but I could see the appeal). Its completely understandable though - I have a stupidly expensive laptop to game on as we like to be together in the evening even though we don't want to be watching the same thing and we only have the one TV. I reckon the Series S would be perfect for you then - its a fabulous little machine. Maybe an external HD to transfer stuff though rather than the ridiculously priced SSD card thing - it really doesn't take long to move things. I have a 2gb HD hooked up to mine and its easy just to move the things that are frequently in play in and out.
  7. You have 2 Series X's in the front room? Would it not make more sense to move one to the games room and just have 2 profiles on the one in the living room (adding extra storage if required)
  8. I preferred Origins (but I have a big thing for Egyptian mythos) but Odyssey, Origins and Valhalla are all great (albeit largely very similar games). The female leads in all three are the more interesting characters
  9. Ooh yes forgot Guardians…I really liked the Avengers games despite its myriad faults so I’ll no doubt pick that up this year
  10. The old console companion app only works for Xbox One machines and not the Series S or X (never been entirely clear why). Steaming now works for all Xbox’s in the main Xbox app (formerly Gamepass Beta app) and they are sun setting the console companion app. As I noted yesterday however although it’s there and can see my Series S in the app I couldn’t get it to actually stream…
  11. Been playing through the content in order - the original game is great but the bosses are bloody awful. So far the expansions are actually a lot better (finished Armageon, half way through Dissolution) - far more intense and leave you thinking about your weapon choice and positioning. Looking forward to trying the two MachineGames penned packs as I love their work on the Wolfenstein reboots
  12. I have about 1000 games I've not touched so really shouldn't be hyped for anything (too many subscriptions and Humble Bundles) but Kena looks really like my kind of thing and I will no doubt pick up Metroid Dread and try Halo Infinite when it hits Gamepass. The kids are hyped for the latest Pokemon reboot for Xmas so I guess there is that too
  13. If you have the latest update for the Xbox app it's in the middle of the screen next to 'All PC games'. Its pretty much nothing more than a hot link to the web app though - performance seems identical to me (pretty damned good over ethernet but still clearly streaming). The remote play option is in the top tool bar next to the bell for alerts (an icon of an Xbox with arrows above and below it). Not working terribly well for me. I managed to connect to my old Xbone but very laggy - refused to connect to my Series S at all (did the spaceship loading screen and then black screen before throwing up an error message). Work in progress I reckon
  14. If you have Gamepass PC the initial download is only 1.1gb. The quest pops when you open the app before it asks to download another 124gb
  15. Has a real look of a classic 3rd person platformer with a heavy combat element to me. Rather like Alice: Madness Returns or more recently Psyconauts 2. Oh yeah and Kameo. I really loved Kameo. Which makes it pretty much an instant buy for me. It is still coming to PC at launch right?
