    Quantum Break

    There are some weird exchanges in the cutscenes where I didnt always understand how they got from one scene to another, but I dont know if thats because of some underlying premise of the game being more like a TV show or if I just didnt get it. It looks like parts of the game was cut from the final version and thats why some of the dots are tough to connect. I didnt follow the game much at launch and played this only after it went on Game Pass, but Im glad I did. Really cool game, with great visuals and audio - and I think because it has been maybe 5 years since I last watched The Wire I didnt have any problems seeing Gillen and Reddick again in this. It works really well I think, and also the entire cast did a great job with the TV episodes. It took an episode and a half before I got into it, but at the end I was all up in the story and actors and everything. The final boss fight can fuck off, though. I spent something like 25 tries praying for a lucky round of the random red areas from killing me no matter what I tried, on Normal setting. Totally unfair encounter, mostly because its so hard to see the red flashing of the bombs in time to get out, and especially when your screen is already red from having taken damage so you cant even see that one has been dropped in your vicinity. Felt good flashing the bird at Serenes face as he came flying across the room at the end of the fight. "Fuck you game!". Any way, I would love to see more of this kind of mix of TV series and videogames on Game Pass, maybe in episodic form. I also went through Late Shift thanks to it being on GP and similar to Quantum Break, it is perfect for the service. Sort of like how Netflix and HBO produce their superhero series and other stuff, but with videogame elements to them. So you could have a couple of favourite series that you followed, with new chapters every other month or so which I dont think is unfeasible for a medium sized studio (or someone like the now closed Telltale Games) who would specialize in this genre.

    The Nismo is great, and you can also unlock it from one of the other Nissans in the shop. 1080p

  4. Theres a reward up for desync and disconnection issues in the past on the console version And a new Lvl 1 Helmet skin in the Store to spend the 20k bp on.
  5. Im not going to go into a discussion with you over what Microsoft are releasing or not in 2019, but you are already ignoring other games announced for 2019, and then there is content coming to Game Pass. Wishful thinking, or just ignorance. I cant tell.
  6. Ps5 in 2019 makes no sense - what are they going to launch with? Its just wishful thinking, because the alternative is too painful for many to accept: that they need to go back to the drawing board and update their games services among other things. They are probably going to put a lot of resources into that and try to present a new vision of playstation at E3 2020. With a possible release date in late 2020 but more likely early 2021. Which makes it look like we have the X, the Pro, and the Switch to deal with for maybe 2 1/2 more years, although I would expect an upgrade to the Switch maybe in 2019. And E3 is the Superbowl of the business, this would be like one of the major teams just cancelling the entire season.
  7. Is there any use for the Pokéball outside of this game? Like with Pokemon Go or something? It costs as much as the game itself, just wondering if its worth it.

    Sounds like the Razer kb+m is the stuff they were talking about a couple of months a go https://www.theverge.com/2018/6/25/17500298/microsoft-xbox-one-keyboard-mouse-support-razer-chroma But they didnt really say much during the Inside show other than confirm it, and pointed to another show (Game Awards?)

    I have to catch up with the Bards Tale series, the only one I played was the first back in the 80s. Bards Tale 4 was out recently and looks good, turn-based combat. Reviews citing 'technical issues'.

    I was lucky in a wheelspin with the Senna There is a drag strip that only appears in winter at Derwent Water in case anyone is missing an exhibition race towards the 70/70.
