    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I remember Sam Houser (or was it Dan?) quoted in Edge magazine years ago, saying that running in real life is hard work, so running in a game should be hard work as well. The trouble is he confused hard work with pain in the arse.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    I know people generally didn't like it, but I really enjoyed the Bond game made by Bizarre back in the day. Anyway, I am pathetic and weak. I was determined to just play this using gamepass, but saw the bond cars and have -pre-ordered the ultimate edition on the Xbox store.
  3. Talking of Jet Set Radio, has anybody seen this on the Xbox store. Quite the "tribute" (ripoff?)

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    It makes such a difference when you have to actually look around for everything. It is just a shame that the map still shows quite a bit of stuff in the area. I'd prefer to have to scout around for all of it.
  5. Have they given any hints as to what the next enhanced backwards compatible title might be? Seems like forever since the last one was released.
  6. They are doing a special deal on Gamepass at the moment. It is reduced to £79 for a year, and you also get codes for Forza Horizon 3 and Forza 7 to keep forever. It hasn't been updated on the site yet to reflect the Forza games (codes will be sent out later for them) but the Gamepass Twitter account has confirmed the free games are for all regions as well as the discount. Not the best price that Gamepass has been, but not bad for anybody wanting the Forza games to keep.
  7. I've done 3 or 4 areas. They aren't too hard to find really, and the rewards so far have been seeds for permanently boosting various stats if I remember rightly.
  8. I can't help but think that if it was any other game series that kept using the same setting, especially one so small, they would have been torn a new one by now. Crackdown had one sequel, and still gets shit for using the same city. Don't get me wrong, I love the games and will be there day one for this. But I'm bored of walking the same streets now.

    V-Rally 4 - PS4, XB1, PC, Switch

    Am I the only person here to pick this up then? It feels like I'm the only person in the world who has picked it up judging by the lack of topics around the internet. It isn't that great though really. I believe it is by the devs who made WRC 5, 6 and 7. I enjoyed WRC 7 quite a lot, but the handling in this feels off. Some cars are way too twitchy and some races and really bloody difficult, with the A.I smoking me. Which is odd as I imagined this would have been much more arcade'y than WRC 7 and therefore a little easier. I believe they also made Isle of Man TT, and the handling in that game is a mess, so I suppose I shouldn't be too surprised by this game. It certainly doesn't bear any resemblance to the old V Rally games, to my mind at least.

    Give MyTube a try? I haven't used it in a while, but it was a pretty good alternative last time I did.

    When did that start? I pre-ordered a ton of stuff about 2 weeks ago (Tomb Raider, Assassins Creed and Red Dead amongst them) and it took payment for them all straightaway Edit: actually I pre-ordered Red Dead 2 on the 5th, and it took payment instantly. Ah, just found the FAQ page. It is only 10 days if you use a credit card. Otherwise payment is still taken immediately.

    How have you managed that? I'm always charged immediately when I pre-order digital stuff.
  13. Why don't they have the option to just let the spoken conversations flow? It is annoying me having to keep pressing X to hear the next sentence.
  14. Absolutely loving this so far. As jonamok says, it is utterly gorgeous etc etc. I'm just in my element playing a good old fashioned RPG. It seems like forever since I last played one.

    No Man's Sky

    Why the fuck do they have to fuck around with the UI and item management? So many things that need fixing and they waste time pissing around changing things, and not for the better. Moving stuff around is now a little more fiddly, and they have taken away the ability to move anything to your storage units from anywhere in the universe/galaxy? Since moving from PS4 to Xbox, it seems this latest version doesn't add that much other than make inventory management and crafting lot more difficult than it used to be.
