    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    I believe that will be an option sometime down the road. Someone here highlighted an Ultimate Upgrade option on the MS store a week or two ago..

    Fortnite is free though isn't it? For that reason I can't see a physical release being especially likely/profitable.

    Good new horror films

    I hear from a friend that The Wind is very good. Still on the festival circuit for now I think but one to bookmark..

    Killing Eve - BBC Spy thriller, comedy, drama

    This is truly excellent, one of the best TV series I’ve seen in a long time. This, rather than The Bodyguard, is the one that should be on prime time Sunday evenings... Man Bites Dog x Hitman x Prime Suspect.

    The Worst Videogame Article Ever Written

    More like journajism. I could only manage a couple of paragraphs of this but they are shockingly bad. Couldn't read anymore as Inside was my GOTY and, as such, I didn't want to tarnish it by association with this dreadful nonsense.

    Demo was fun, especially the offroad races. Only niggle was that the time pissing about having your score updated at the end of the race was a bit long and a bit irrritating. The option of 60fps is lovely and means that, unlike FH3, most of my time will be spent on the Xbox. I wish more games would offer a choice of 60/1080 or 30/4k as i'd take the smoothness over the resolution any day of the week.

    How did you get it for that price @ScouserInExile? Or is that pre VAT?

    Yes, I'd imagine that is exactly how it'll work. The release date of this has crept up on me a little and I am now rather excited at the prospect of playing this quite soon.

    Aah right, I'm with you. It would certainly be great if MS were to offer all the Ultimate additions for Game Pass owners and it'd be interesting to see how they price it - I'd guess at £40. That said, I'll likely do as I did with FH3 and just go Ultimate from the start as the expansions alone should be enough to justify the uplift from the regular release. I'll duck out of this topic again now as MS seem to be showing way too much footage and screens of this for my taste. I even briefly glimpsed the map in this thread a while back which was a bit of a spoiler really as I'd like it to be fresh when I start playing in a few weeks.. EDIT: I've just remembered that the expansion packs weren't included with the FH3 Ultimate Edition which, in hindsight, made that a much weaker edition than this years' offering.

    That VIP pass is just a selection of cosmetic items (and a couple of cars) and, as such, doesn’t include the good stuff from the Ultimate edition - car passes, car packs, the expansions, etc...

    I'm pretty confident that FROM would care, for starters. In a game where every action is saved, and and the consequences permanent, the ability to load up an earlier cloud save would totally remove the tension and fear that the game excels at and upon which so of it's reputation is founded. It doesn't matter if the game is 'competitive' or not, you'd not be 'cheesing' the game, you'd be breaking one of the game's key mechanics - that of actions having consequences that will remain with the player for the rest of the play through.

    It really isn't. The risk v reward mechanic is what makes Dark Souls so rewarding, if there was a chance to undo a mistake then the game would be significantly compromised.
  15. I hope lots of folk now start playing Onrush as it is brilliant and hugely compulsive chaos. I stopped playing a while ago as being one of two or three human players in a 12 'person' race was just no fun. I think I can count the number of times I ever saw a full human lobby on the fingers of one hand which was quite depressing given how much fun everyone was missing out on. After Forza Horizon 3 it's the best car (and bike) game on the One by a country mile so you all should get after it..
