    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    Presumably they tried it, and the player was just confused about the number of options that were open to them. It's a tricky one.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    It makes sense in context, it’s just that the choice of context is unfortunate. the game is lovely once you get into the city, but I wonder if (theme aside) the reaction would be better if you’d been dropped in a brightly coloured world with blue skies (which, unsurprisingly, is far beyond Crackdown 1 or 2), rather than a blue lit grey cell then a post apocalyptic shanty town for your first fifteen minutes (which HDR aside, is less so).

    The first moment you get control: is grey, grey, grey. im sure the argument is that you’re rewarded by the city once you get through the gate, but while dark and grey shows off Theresa’s food bank well, I’m less sure it’s the “best” intro.

    Anthem - February 22nd

    Its worth pointing out that, at various points (and not just for the initial release) there have been missions/activities in Destiny/the division/Diablo which have been unnecessarily grindy and requiring specific fluky drop rates. Or tedious running around harvesting materials which only turn up every now and again. the question isn’t whether anthem has them. It’s how they react to them when they start getting metrics from much larger player bases than their internal test teams.

    HDR on Windows is just a shit show, and apparently continues to be.

    Xbox One X

    Think that’s an offer elsewhere too.

    Ah, if you’re playing coop certain settings are set to the capability of the objectively worst machine.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    I dunno, I played Crackdown 1 again last year when it was released with enhanced backwards compatibility. Given bloated open world game collectathons it felt fresh then, so I’m quite looking forward to a more modern update with a city I don’t know backwards.
  9. Anna's then a particularly godly cleric, Amos a barbarian, Naomi a wizard (though this doesn't come across in the TV series) and Alex a, um...
  10. Is Strait Holden? As written he's basically an impossible role.
  11. There's just too many characters thrown in, too fast, and there's not that much to distinguish "space person number one" from belter number two; or white earth politician one from white earth military person two. And, unlike in the first bit of Game of Thrones, you're also bouncing between three different locations for the first few episodes (Canterbury, Ceres, Earth) with a different cast of characters at each. It just about works in the book. It requires a hell of a lot more focus on TV.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    Theres no difference between playing it on GamePass and buying something digitally. You simply have a digital licence for as long as your sub lasts. if you’re likely to buy two Microsoft published games a year, and aren’t into trading physical copies in, you might as well just buy cheap games pass subs when they appear.
  13. Season 3, Episode 2, non plot (think hype) spoiler.
  14. @Escaped you missed out audience favourite . I see final story where might be difficult to film, but there’s always hope?
  15. This is far better than the hd links (comparing the last episode of S2 yesterday to the first episode of S3 today). Cheers!

    Audica - VR Rythmic Shooting from Harmonix

    (Scroll down) thank you... though I don’t quite see it. Beat sabre works because it’s entirely natural. The mixture of shooting in time + the uzi thing I’m less sure about. though the music will be better.
  17. Series one I started a few times, like the first book. Then at some point about two years later I burned through season one and two, and books 1 to 7, in the course of a month. having not watched season 3, I’ve a reasonable idea where it might end. What I’m less sure of is whether they’ll get to the best cliffhanger by the end of season 4.

    Veronica Mars - revival in the works?

    Season 3 is weaker, but still quite fun.

    Games Industry Dead Pool

    It does feel more like a clearing of decks in preparation for a few years of not much. What are they releasing this year - no blizzard titles, call of duty wotsit, a ftp game from king?

    I just read dignitas throughout that press release.

    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    There aren’t any dolphins in the demo, so it’s not surprising you didn’t notice them. There’s also no need to time your button presses to the music: there’s a tiny delay introduced where necessary to ensure it all lines up.

    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    The point is that it’s in your perphipial vision (spelling!). the track which most makes sense (New York jazz?) isn’t in the demo.
  23. Any 4k version in the U.K.?

    I hear there's a Portuguese manager looking for a job, having recently been paid off.
