    Days Gone - Sons of Anarchy x Last of Us

    Can't climb scenery, good gravel textures.

    Sea of Thieves - Sign up for Adventures Ahoy

    You know, I think I've actually got this installed but never played it (on Xbox, gave it a brief play on PC when all the achievements were still broken). How do you do voice stuff on Xbox One, can I use my old standard 360 headset? XBL username same as here.

    Welcome to how I've felt far too often, to that guy.

    What games did you complete? 2019 Edition

    Driver: San Francisco (PC) This was decent but strange in that there's almost no reason for the majority of the content to exist. Fun enough to play, swamped by the worst of Ubisoft. Literally hundreds of utterly inconsequential icons littering the entire map, many upgrades to buy, cars to unlock and purchase, all completely nothing whatsoever to do with aiding you through the storyline in the slightest. It's really weird, all these cars you can buy to get in and drive from the garage... when the main and quickly introduced mechanic is that you can magically warp to other cars so buying cars to drive in is literally pointless given you'll spend five seconds in one before warping elsewhere thus rendering the entire event/unlock/earn/purchase aspect seemingly entirely redundant. I can see why they did it, the map would have been sparse and empty otherwise, but they could have linked it all in together a bit better. Or at all.
  5. Hold throttle. Tap brake so you see the tyres smoke. As the countdown reaches 0 time it so you let go of throttle for an absolute instant and hit it again right on "go!". Instant boost and a part filled boost meter. Not the most intuitive, but that's the only way I've got it to work 100% of the time.

    Xbox One Console Thread

    Man, don't think I ever got anywhere near alpha before I sacked off the Insider thing due to the issues not being worth the hassle. Nice perk though!

    Antstream - It's Netflix for Games!

    A more pertinent question is who in their right mind has ever loved a boss rush to the point that they've ended up thinking "I know what'd be a great idea, more boss rushes!". Madness.
  8. It still outputs them as a 4K signal though doesn't it (upscaled by the Xbox)? Having it on the box doesn't mean much more than it's a supported output, arguably the HDR part is more important but they kind of go hand in hand, at least as far as marketing goes.
  9. It also plays games in such formats, or am I missing an epic joke

    Microsoft Rewards

    Jul: MS Credit (20% off) Aug: Xbox Credit (20% off) Sep: MS Credit (30% off) Oct: Gamepass (25% off) Nov: MS Credit (30% off) Dec: XBL Gold (20% off) Jan: Skype (25% off) Feb: MS Credit (20% off) Mar: Gamepass (25% off) Apr: XBL Gold (25% off) 25% off Gold this month, and if you go for the 12 months option it's a mere 22500 points. My gold sub expires in September 2020, I should be able to add another year onto that, right? It'll supply a code is all, don't want to be left with one I can't use. Probably be back to MS credit again next month, unless they slip Skype back in again to the interest of no-one.

    PlayStation 4 Console Thread

    Should say CUH-7216B on it, 7200 is just the series in general. RDR2 boxed bundle definitely did have that though, ended up with that one myself just to be sure (fortunately at a time where I could shift RDR2 for a decent amount still!), and while it's not Xbox One X silent it's certainly been pretty quiet for me.
  12. To be fair, some other arcade racers do expect you to let up on accelerate (albeit very fractionally, and on auto gears where there's an option) in order to drift. But I've only noticed that because it doesn't work if you don't which means you need to try that instead. Pedal permanently is always the default action of the connoisseur, that's for sure!

    Xbox One Console Thread

    Did you know that the shortcut to unhide your hidden games from the "available" list is now L3 + X (used to be RB + X but the UI changing to use LB & RB to flip between "installed" and "available" broke it)? I did not, but this makes me happy.

    Xbox Game Pass

    A quid for three months at the moment, apparently open to existing subscribers (edit: actually, my sub might've just lapsed which doesn't make huge sense seeing as I bought two months on the 14th Feb - but it's now showing three months as 50% off at £11.99 which might be what some of you see from the off, who knows): https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/p/xbox-game-pass/CFQ7TTC0K6L8 Not that excited about too many games on it, but so far I've been through: Kingdom New Lands (deleted) ReCore (finished) RiME (finished) Super Lucky's Tale (finished) Sky Force Reloaded (finished) Forza Horizon 4 (deleted) Crackdown 3 (completed) Kingdom Two Crowns (deleted) What Remains of Edith Finch (downloaded, to play) Can't argue with the value (especially seeing as I've only paid £6.59 for 9 or 10 months worth in total now), but the thought of it doesn't really set my pulse going. ReCore and Crackdown 3 are highlights, the rest I don't think I'd have missed out had I never heard of them. Prey and Edith Finch I'm looking forward to though!

    Abandoned Games (2019)

    There was a PC mod that removed them, so Frictional patched in Safe Mode where they're still there but more passive, retaining the feel and experience of the game really well (apparently, I've not got round to it yet but it's the only way I'll be able to attempt to play it). This explains it: https://www.indiegamewebsite.com/2018/01/25/soma-safe-mode-review/
