    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    Me neither. Its been on the shelf after I sunk around 12 or so hours into it. Think I just enjoyed Zelda for what it was before a fairly linear story telling experience. This seems more like a traditional RPG experience... Personally I liked the hand-holding nature of the previous games earning the equipment etc needed to complete certain bits of the game and gentle progression to the end of the story - its what made Zelda fairly unique to me. Never liked things like Skyrim etc because of the openness of the world and they just eat lots of time. Guess we cannot all like everything but this Zelda isn't for me.... and for me Its disappointing. Reading this:- https://nesn.com/2017/03/the-legend-of-zelda-breath-of-the-wild-could-hurt-not-help-series/ Think this is the aspect I miss:- "The game’s story, although great, is entirely optional. If you wanted, you could skip nearly every major story-telling moment and head right for bosses. Previous “Zelda” games merged gameplay with storytelling in ways that, while predictable, were always rewarding." Also not sure where Zelda will go after BoTW? (as mentioned in the article above).

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    How long do games stay on game pass? Guessing this will be a play-anywhere titles so it will work in the PC too! Think the gamepass route will be the way I go for this... There isn't that many titles on the play anywhere thing yet but they are steadily increasing.. oh and Crackdown 3 should be on there at some point too. Looking about you can get a month gamepass for £1.99... wonder if these are stackable...

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    Me too... and game manuals too... IIRC FM2 Special Edition came with an nice chunky manual... 3 not so good though with a key fob and USB stick (although managed to get that for the same price as the Standard Edition due to an admin mistake at Blockbuster online at the time). In the end though I guess it was all useless tat LMAO... just felt like you were getting something more for your money. Happy enough with the standard editions these days especially for the main Forza series as more interested in getting more tracks than cars... and you never seem to get additional tracks with the SE versions. In fact FM3 is still one of my favourites in the series due to the number of tracks in that in particular the point to point ones....

    Nintendo Switch

    Believe it or not there is an ISO standard for country abreviations both in double and triple letter formats... https://www.nationsonline.org/oneworld/country_code_list.htm I know this because in financial calculations you have to stiplulate currency codes... Sad....

    Shenmue 1 and 2 coming to PS4,XB,PC

    Yes this is what is a bit confusing! I bought Cuphead on the Xbox and then could play on PC... and then it became available on Steam... what I'm guessing is that MS had an exlusivity period on the Xbox/Windows store and then allowed for its release onto Steam. MS really need to sort this stuff out.. confusing....

    Shenmue 1 and 2 coming to PS4,XB,PC

    Anyone know if this will be X-Play on Xbox? Hoping so - be good to buy on PC and have the option to play on the Xbox at some point...

    Shenmue 1 and 2 coming to PS4,XB,PC

    Well it might do... I wouldn't rule it out! Guess we'll have to see how well it does on the other platforms...

    Are games fun?

    Think thats the thing really.. using a blanket term like "games" for the medium is really doing it a disservice ... "Interactive entertainment experiences" or something maybe better I mean something like Dear Esther or Everyones Gone To Rapture etc can hardly be called games in the traditional sense...

    Are games fun?

    Depends what you enjoy playing I guess and whether you find it fun. There is so much content out there whatever your type of game is you'll find something that appeals. Sure AAA games these days are narrow and focussed on specific themes and these are the ones that get big marketing budgets and draw attention to themselves so designed to appeal to as many as possible - much like big budget movies. Anyway long way of saying Yes.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    Me too... it's been a while since I've been so hyped about a game...... Anyone know if they are releasing a demo? They did on all other Forza Horizons so expect it will be business as usual?! Wish MS would release FH2 on the PC... really miss that game and wouldn't mind playing it through again before 4 is released...

    Reverse rose tinted glasses!

    Mostly agree. Think this is the main reason why the Switch is doing so well... I know the Wii got a bit of a kicking from the "core gamers" when it was released but for me it felt like a return to form for console gaming... games that were simple in concept but easy to pick up, play and just have fun with. Problem with gaming these days is they seem to be getting ever more complex and to the point where it feels like a chore to play them... another job if you will seemingly micro managing all sorts of things... and as metioned sometimes a huge time commitment is required. Recently fired up my Saturn and played some Sega Rally... ended up spending 2-3 hours with it... it has what 4 tracks and 3 cars? The game plays so well...even now its fun - sure the graphics are basic but just feels great to play. Similar with a lot of the Saturn games I revisited. Think the other element (and it is probably a bit rose tinted stuff going on here) is I think we tend to forget how much time we spent in our youth playing games and as we get older we have other responsibilities and the old school apporach suits much better as we are used to those games so naturally pick up and play them quicker. Whereas with gaming now we have to effectively learn some elements again... which takes time....and feels like hard work at times. Saying all this from the modern batch of games really enjoying playing Fortnite a bit at the moment... easy to pick up and have an hour or two in there. Feels old school with modern visuals and makes muliplayer gaming more accessable. Oh and its free. So I'd argue that gaming has never been cheaper... (if you adjust the old game prices by inflation).

    Sony Blocking Accounts Between Devices

    Interesting though that agree that Sony and MS don't want you spending VC you bought with them on another platform. However what of items you have *already* bought? Say you buy an item on the PC and then can this be used on the XBox/Switch/PS4 game? I guess ultimately the Epic account will have a record of what things have been bought on your account... It will all get a bit messy In an ideal world it shouldn't really matter where you spend your vbucks your game profile should be updated to reflect that you now have access to that piece of content. Kinda like buying a steam key from any vendor and then using it in steam I guess...

    Finally setup a PS2 HDD /FHDB

    Platformers:- Jak and Daxter series Ratchett And Clank Others:- Okami Silent Hill 2 (best version IMHO) Gran Turismo series Burnouts (1+2) - incredibly fast and fun... Ico and Shadow Of The Colossus (although I'd play the latter on PS4 if you have access to one.. much better experience as frame rate made this nearly unplayable in from my experience on the later colossi...)
