  1. I've managed to get it working early this morning. I deleted the Dolby app, did a full restart of the Xbox and re-downloaded the app. I then connected the headset and launched the app and it says the licence expires in 6 months. Not sure why it was playing up last night.
  2. Has anybody managed to unlock the Dolby Atmos offer? Doesn't seem to work for me probably region locked?
  3. It is solid for the most part. I only had issues when I suffered a bad crash near the start of a race and had to 180 spin back to the track with the other 15 cars ahead of me. I'm sure the guys at Digital Foundry will give it a full work over. But I'm super happy with it.
  4. 4k. I'll give it a blast at 1080p. To be honest with my eyesight I probably won't notice the res drop.
  5. Just played the Series X recent update. There's a few screen tears and frame drops but it's a massive improvement on the 30fps version I ditched after 10 minutes of play. Now at least I'm looking forward to putting more time into it instead of removing it from the storage. Great work BugBear.
  6. I ordered mine from Amazon on the 17th of Feb and they sent me an email yesterday saying it wasn't going to be dispatched for today. The email also said it was going to be dispatched soon, but I'm not confident. I guess they've had supply issues.
  7. Ah, the good old 1-2 (backwards) grass grind, it will be forever burnt into my memory. Thank goodness for the PS5 load times.
  8. Definitely agree with you on the Maneater hate. It wasn't too bad on New Game but on New Game+ I really struggled. My build just wasn't up to dealing enough damage to get the first one down before the second one showed up. That coupled with the guy flapping about all over the place I was having a bad time of it. It caused me to drop the game completely. Yesterday after a couple of weeks break I finally mustered up the will to have another crack at him. I got close a couple of times only to be knocked off the arena which added to my rage. With my Grass supplies slowly depleting I decided to hav
  9. Have they sold out (been scalped) already? I can't seem to find them anywhere other than the official MS store but they're out of stock there.
  10. Coming off the back of playing Halo 1 to 4 and Reach on the Master Chief collection recently on my Series X I thought I'd give Halo 5's campaign a go. What's with the game running in 60fps and then certain enemy animations running in 30fps? I never played 5 before. As a campaign how does it rank against the others? I loved replaying 1,2,3 and Reach. 4 had it's moments but the story made no sense. Currently on 5 I'm fighting Prometheans that just seem to stand in front of me without reacting whilst I blast them in the face and when they move in the distanc
  11. What's the general consensus regarding using the supplied stand when the console is being placed vertically? I didn't read the instructions so I only thought the stand was for horizontal use.
  12. Wow. I was wondering why my amp never displayed Dolby Atmos on it even though it supported it. I didn't even know I needed to download a separate app for the Series X. Turns out the Dolby app is free for AV amp support. Thanks.

    Xbox Game Pass

    I used this one but struggled to buy more than one off ShopTo's website as it was restricted to one per customer. I was able to by pass that by creating multiple accounts. https://www.shopto.net/en/dwnld46902-xbox-live-prepaid-12-month-gold-membership-card-p83275/
  14. I tried to get into Connected mode and some other modes a few times last night with no joy. I even tried turning the router off and on but still nothing. The servers are a joke and it makes me sad. I'd be up for some Connected games on an evening. My gamer tag is Onze.

    Xbox Game Pass

    Untitled Goose Game - Those geese can be pretty violent.
  16. There's a Camera Zoom option in the Gameplay settings. Have a play with that so you don't have to use the Left Stick to Zoom in each time.
  17. Quick resume doesn't seem to be working. Swapping between Gears of War 5 and Tetris Effect Connected seems to go through the full load sequence for each game everytime.
  18. I just re-opened my Microsoft Store website basket that I was receiving the payment error on this morning and it allowed me to check out. This was about 5 minutes ago.
  19. I've just bobbed to my local Currys/PC World which was about a 5 minute drive away. I've put down a £5 deposit on the Series X. Hopefully they'll get enough stock allocation. They seem to have their stuff together regarding Covid safety. All the staff either had a mask or visor on and I was all masked up so it all felt pretty safe. I was in and out within 5 minutes.
  20. Just tried Brave now and it's still a no go.
  21. That's a BIG if. I've had it in my basket on the MS website for over 1 hour and I can't check out. I spent 40 minutes on hold on my mobile for a support representative but I finally gave up.

    Xbox Game Pass

    So I let my Xbox Game Pass Ultimate expire a couple of days ago. I did the Xbox Live Gold 12 month upgrade to Ultimate for £1 last year at some point. Just to confirm that the 1 to 1 ratio upgrade from Gold to Ultimate is still available. I bought 2 x 12 Month Xbox Live Gold Subscriptions from ShopTo today for £39.85 a piece and redeemed each Gold subscription. When I redeemed the first 12 month Gold sub I turned on Auto Renew to gain 1 month extra. I then turned off the auto renew and redeemed the second 12 month Gold sub and once again turned on Auto Renew to gain ano
  23. A bit of a faff but if you're playing on Xbox One then you can use the Xbox Accessories app to override the in game button mappings.
  24. Thank goodness Season 4 is coming to Netflix on the 19th of June.
