    XBOX gamepass and Xbox app coming to switch?

    How do Nintendo make money on it though? From Microsoft's perspective it seems great but if they get 4,243,607 people to sign up to Xcloud on Switch, to throw an arbitrary number on it, how do Nintendo make money from that? Will they get a percentage of the subscription, are MS paying them a set amount to allow Xcloud? etc.

    Anyway, I'm not sure why Nintendo would allow GamePass/Xcloud to be made available on the Switch. May lock access to it behind their online subscription or force people to subscribe via the eShop so that they get a cut. Not sure how that'd work for someone already subscribed until 202x.

    Average speed is a fairly worthless stat given the sheer gulf in speed between something like a FTTH connection and ADSL. We really need a better breakdown of how many people are on less than 5mb connections, between 5 and 25, 25 to 50 etc. Of course those sort of stats are harder to make looker better each year so we'll never get that.

    Well, no. The new rumours (for what little they are worth) are about Gamepass/Xcloud being available via the Switch and Microsoft porting some titles like Ori to the Switch.

    Chris Hemsworth is... Hulk Hogan!?!

    Casting someone a couple of inches smaller than Hulk Hogan to play Terry Bollea makes perfect sense. Liam as Brutus Beefcake?

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    A few quick questions. 1. Do the Intel Fragments and Agent DNA carry over between saves? I can understand why the Propaganda Towers etc. wouldn't but the fragments and DNA seem like they should. 2. If I max out a skill do the hidden orbs stop boosting that skill and instead give a bigger boost to skills that aren't fully levelled? 3. Do you have to beat the final boss to unlock all the Intel Fragments or are they all available in the world before that fight?

    Have to agree with Ketchups point about the music being too loud compared to the voice overs. I could barely make out a word of what was said in the introduction to the Terra Nova bosses. I'm enjoying the game though. Being a low level character takes some getting used to. My last experience of Crackdown was with a near maxed out agent so going back to bunny hops and weak grenades is strange, enemies being a threat feels weird. I do like feeling the difference leveling up makes, especially unlocking moves. That air-dash move when you click in the left stick is great, whoever came up with that deserves an entire pack of chocolate hob-nobs.

    I think this news from earlier in the week shows the level of expertise in the FAI. Bunch of cowboys.

    I wonder how much of that divide is down to reviewers treating it as a $60 game and people on here treating it as part of the gamepass subscription. The Verges review calling it The Netflix Original of videogames seems a good description.

    I think I eventually got over 490 agility orbs in the original so there's plainly some corner of the map where there's a handful of orbs just waiting for me. I keep meaning to dig out my 360 and upload the save just so I can give it another run through to see if I can finally reach 500. I got all the agility orbs in Crackdown 2 but it was significantly easier in that game.

    This quote from the Polygon review is a real bugbear of mine. This constant pressure for bigger and bigger environments is something I hate seeing. Over the years I've come to appreciate just how little wasted space there is in GTA3. Surely the quality of the playground should matter more than the size of it? Putting 17 gajillion miles between the monkey bars and the swings doesn't make either of them more fun to use.

    Sorry for doing the grammar Nazi thing but when you are talking about Captain Toad then Charming is spelled with a capital c.

    They showed multiple new titles/expansions that I'll probably end up buying so that qualifies as a good direct by my own arbitrary measure. More Captain Toad though. Hopefully they'll add the 3D World levels back in to the Switch version so it can be the definitive version of that game.
