  1. If I already have game pass, what the cheapest way to top it up? I've got about 6 months left...
  2. Which games would these be?
  3. I do mine at the same time every night. Put the kids to bed, head into the back room, where all the kids' stuff lives, switch the xbox on while I plug all the tablets in, do the two dailies. Annoyingly, I managed to miss out on the 1000pts by one daily last month.
  4. I've worked my way through Abnett's Inquisitor books - Eisenhorn, Ravenor, the Magos and the new Bequin books. I don't know if he's only recently started doing it, or if I've only just noticed it, but he's in the really bad habit of using really obscure words, when there's a perfectly good, common word he could have used. On pretty much the first page of Penitent, he uses half a dozen words for "yellow" that I had to Google, where "yellow" would have done the job. I'm all for an expanded vocabulary, but there are times where it seems like he's picking random words and looking up the most obscu
  5. Yeah, definitely. They're pretty much Sharpe in space, but they're full of great characters, really good story arcs and loads of action. I've recently reread them all and was thoroughly entertained throughout. Speaking of which. I've just finished the latest Bequin book, which seems to be about to make a massive change to the 40k lore, which might be interesting. Looking for recommendations on what to read next. What's new and exciting out there?
  6. Is this on any of the streaming services? The Mitchells vs the Machines Great film. Couldn't really fault it, to be honest and the kids absolutely loved it. 5/5
  7. Mortal Kombat 11 had a preorder bonus character that was a fiver otherwise. I seem to remember there was something similar for Forza Horizon 4...
  8. Is that the 2D side scroller with really simple graphics? I think we played that and got stuck...
  9. Ultimate would just add the dlc. Be careful, though, there's a couple of versions of "ultimate" one of which doesn't include the extra story or some of the characters. I was somewhat irked about this.
  10. Right. Me and the kids have completed Rain on Your Parade in the space of a weekend. Need something similar now. Simple, bit of puzzling, not overly wordy (otherwise I have to read everything to my five year old). They bounced off Donut Country, but I might get them to try again. We liked Yoku's Island Express. What else might work?
  11. If you're just after achievements, have you done the Killer Instinct ones? You get one for winning a single fight, one for winning a survival fight and one for winning 2-3 fights with each character. There's approaching 30 characters and you can literally just button mash your way to wins (on easy), so it's kept me in three weekly achievements for some time now.
  12. Hmmmm.... I'll have to look into that further.
  13. Ed Boon posted about that on twitter a week or so ago. He did a "would you like to see this?" poll, then did a "okay, great. Now name 15 monsters we could use". They've already had: Alien Predator Freddie Kruger Jason Vorhees Terminator Leatherface Spawn(?) That's 6/7, what else could they include to make up the numbers? They could go down the Darkstalkers route and have generic vampire / mummy / zombie / Frankenstein's monster type characters...
  14. Decided to have another crack at this last night, having watched a couple of perfect / speed run videos. Going to state the obvious and say its still completely amazing. Never been one for game music, but the music in this is astounding. Just perfect. I've always just button mashed my way through my way through it and accepted taking loads of damage. I've started being a bit more clever about it and watching what the enemies do, rather than just steaming in. Which has added a new lease of life. Can't stop trying to jump in on the topless baldy fellas and keep getting swatted out t
