    Statik is great. One of those incredible VR experiences where what you can see in front of you matches up with what you can feel with your hands in real life.

    Spyro The Dragon Reignited Trilogy

    I enjoyed Spyro back in the day, but the gameplay didn’t compare with something like Super Mario 64 and Banjo Kazooie. It looked great and was incredibly solid for a PS1 game (arguably better than any other 3D platformer on the console), but the structure was unremarkable: enter a level, collect all of the gems, reach the end. The flying stages mixed things up a bit, and the running gave it a nice sense of pace, but it’s not something I was keen to revisit. It’s fair to say I wasn’t expecting to pick up this collection, but after the praise it received, and watching a few videos, I bought it on Friday. I must say, it’s delightful. It looks stunning, and controls better than ever. While that structure hasn’t changed much, they’ve created a beautiful world to interact with, and the whole thing has put a huge smile on my face. I completed the opening world in the first game, but moved on to the sequel fairly quickly as I’d never played it before. After a few stages, the levels seem more inventive, with the orbs giving you extra tasks to complete besides ‘getting to the end’. It isn’t up there with Super Mario Odyssey of course - Spyro’s controls lack the nuance of even the worst 3D Mario - but it’s far better than the mediocre Super Lucky’s Tale and Yooka Laylee. A great game for kids, too. I’d just like to give a special mention to the audio, because they’ve done a tremendous job. The sound effects are crystal clear, and the generous use of the surround channels places you right inside the environments. Makes a change from the usual ‘NPC is stood here so you can only hear their voice through this single channel’ sound mix you tend to get in games.

    I guess these issues wouldn’t be sorted by a simple reboot of a console, would they? Which is what’s always sorted this exact issue in the past. Unrelated to this, I’ve ordered a new router anyway, so hopefully the Xbox will work better through Ethernet using this

    You could try moving the camera forward. How far is your sofa from the TV? And in my experience, sofas don’t work too well when you need to look around you. If you can get a chair placed in the centre of a room, that tends to work better.

    Pos’d for getting rid of your plastic tat.

    You can buy online and return it if it’s not for you, I guess. Image quality is fine. In general, the games look simple, and jaggies are rife, but you genuinely forget it all. There is no lag whatsoever when moving your head around - which still amazes me to this day - and along with the 3D sound it really sells the experience of being somewhere you’re not.

    Is the wireless MAC address usually blank when you have a wired connection? I’ve tried clearing the alternate MAC address, and on the next page there’s a restart console button, but it doesn’t actually restart the console

    You don’t need them for Astrobot, but some of the best games require Move controllers. £40 is a good price

    That does seem to be the obvious conclusion, but it won’t see any other networks - including if I make a hotspot available from my phone. It just doesn’t see anything

    It’s right next to the router, but it won’t find any other networks either (from neighbours, for example - normally it’ll find a good 5-or-so networks nearby). Had the same thing with my One S, and a reboot fixed it. I can use it wired, but I get 40/50Mbps for some odd reason, vs 120Mbps using WiFi. Using the same wire I’ll get 380Mbps on my Windows laptop, MacBook and Mac desktop.

    Rebooted a few times (and held the power button on the console down), and it’s still not finding networks. Got to say, I’ve had a fucking nightmare with the connectivity on the One

    Xbox One Console Thread

    Gah! Used to have a problem with my Xbox One S randomly not finding wireless networks (seems other people online have had the same issue), but a reset would usually sort it. Hoped I’d seen the last of that when I upgraded to a One X a few weeks ago, but it’s started again Want to keep it wireless too, because the connection speed through the cable is poor. Can’t be my router, because it doesn’t pick any other nearby networks up. Anyone else have the same problem?
