  1. Course I am. It’ll be great. I’m just concerned that my 11 year old boy has such bad taste. I thought he’d have his dad’s sensibilities, but oh well.
  2. Shit, my eldest son wants a PS5 for Christmas and he even thinks it looks good. If he didn’t look exactly like me, I’d be moving my partner out right now.
  3. @The Bag As I said, I was really into LSD when I was younger, so that level really resonated with me. I think it’s an absolutely excellent game anyway, but the culmination of everything and the obvious real life experiences of the designers really came together on that level for me. The only things wrong with it are the amount of mini cutscenes that break up the gameplay too much and the combat, but I’ve made myself invincible, so that doesn’t bother me too much. I honestly think the creativity on display is so far ahead of most other games, that it’s up there as one of my all time favourites. It looks absolutely stunning in places on the Series X as well.
  4. Are they even comparable though? One’s a track based arcade racer that’s heavy on set pieces, while the other is an open world graphics showcase, that has more realistic physics. They’re completely different beasts and there’s room for both. Saying that, I did post in the Arcade Racer thread hoping that they’d do some DLC in a similar vein. I’d love to see that kind of craziness with the handing and graphical fidelity of Horizon.
  5. I quite like how everyone’s arguing about Halo 4 & 5, while Infinite is slowly creeping up. They’re doing another test flight next weekend with big team included. Should be a good opportunity to check out the larger maps and vehicular combat. I’ve always enjoyed big team, so I’m really looking forward to it.
  6. Nice one! If you’re still not feeling it after that, then fair enough.
  7. Have you done the Psi King level yet? Please do that before you give up on it. It’s one of the best levels I’ve ever played in any game. It probably helps that I was a raving trip head in my youth though!
  8. God, I hope it’s way better than Halo 4. Bar the graphics looking a bit basic, I think the campaign reveal looked great last year. I’ll be massively disappointed if it turns out to be average.
  9. Nah, it’s always been brilliant on Series X. There’s a few minor bugs, but nothing game breaking and it’s looked fantastic since launch day.
  10. Yeah, it was great, but I want more madness! It’d look absolutely stunning using the Forza engine.
  11. I wish they’d do some DLC for Forza Horizon like this. As much as I love it, I’d really love them to push it into proper crazy land. Maybe they will for the new one after seeing Cruis’n Blast.
  12. It was far from a disappointment at launch and I honestly can’t see the X version being much different. It’s already an amazing looking game. Still, you’ll have plenty of fun when you do get to play it.

    Of course it’s fine that people enjoyed it and I’m really not against that in any way. Just as I can imagine some people will like Skate Bird. Maybe I should have said they saw what a daft premise and name did for Goose Game and thought they’d try it themselves, or maybe I should have just used a different example, even though I personally think it fits quite well. Either way, you all know what I was getting at, so berating me for not liking Goose Game is way off topic and I’d rather we leave it there, so I don’t have to keep explaining my obvious point in ever more convoluted ways. It wasn’t really a point that needed stretching this far really.

    Have you ever heard of these things called opinions? I’ve given my reasons for not liking it and that’s it. You can’t force me to see it any differently. Besides, how could it have caught on because it was a good game, when they gave it that ridiculous name before anyone had even played it? The whole marketing campaign around it was built off the memes and that’s why I’ve always been cynical of skate bird using a wacky conceit to put the game in people’s minds. But anyway, this has gone off topic enough. Maybe I should have said 12 Minutes instead, but that pile of shit tried to hoodwink people with the use of Hollywood actors.
  15. Just wait for it to pop up on Gamepass.

    I just thought it was really poor. Bad graphics, boring gameplay, annoying controls, etc. But above all, I just didn’t find it fun to play. Maybe I got suckered in by the hype because everyone seemed to be hailing it as the second coming, but it just felt like it was trading on its daft name to me. I haven’t played skate bird yet, and I’m unlikely to, but it seems very similar in that it’s a very underwhelming game that’s trying to grab an audience by having the wacky conceit of cute birds on skateboards.

    Ok boss. Am I allowed to think it’s complete shit?

    I thought they were both just cynical cash-ins on their daft premise. I suppose they both had working control schemes though.

    I don’t get why people had any interest in skate bird really, it always looked like another one of those twee games that are complete shit, like untitled goose game, goat simulator, etc. Trying to rope people in with a daft selling point rather than on the merits of it being an actual good game.

    Isn’t that just the quality of games in general? Most are shit to average with just a few being really good. I don’t mind what they put on there as long as those rare gems keep appearing.
  21. Which games are they, out of interest? Can’t you just have them installed on the S’s internal drive, so no drive swapping needed?
  22. Oh, that’s disappointing. Can you give a few more non-spoilery impressions on why you didn’t enjoy it all that much? I didn’t think it was out until the end of October either.
  23. I can imagine it’s taken a fair bit of time to do this remaster, but that just makes me wonder why they didn’t just go the whole hog and really go to town. As it is, it’s like some halfway house, that just doesn’t look worthy of buying again. To me, at least.
  24. Is it all in 4K now? I presume those assets, if that’s what it is, will be taking up the space. Also, thank god I’ve got no interest in CoD.
