  1. Absolute garbage as expected. An entirely meh episode with a couple of fams and an entire nation apathetically making it through the episode hungover as fuck from the night before. Set fire to it and walk away for a few years pls.
  2. @BoothjanI had no idea what SO much of it was these days, it was brilliant! Roll on when we go for a sail again, I'll save the Tall Tales for then Also my eyes nearly fell out when playing it on the Series X, absolutely eye popping and plays so well.
  3. Went back to sea of thieves for the first time in about a year last night, my friends and I normally play xbox on Tuesdays but this week we took my friends daughter on a sail with us as she just inherited her own xbox (thanks to dad getting a series x) and wanted to play but is a bit young to be unleashed to strangers. Absolutely brilliant, I'd forgotten the sheer joy kids have mucking about with the strangest stuff, what a joy thist game is still and absolutely masses to do in these days. Even better was we rolled up on an island which had a boss event going (the firey hurricane) as sh
  4. I played an hour this morning on my One X (as thats in my office and my Series X is in another room hooked up to the big telly) and it was absolutely fine. Some footage here, not watched it myself.
  5. re: Season 2 Episode 4 What was the significance of Got to admit I thought I was done with SW after the films put me off so much but Mando (and I've been recapping Rebels) have sucked me riiiight back into it.
  6. Isn't it just adding Halo 4 (which has just shown up on PC Gamepass) Edit: No I was wrong Patch Notes Optimisation, Cross play and more.
  7. They could not have bollocked this up more, now a new order is raised (just came through via email no explanation) saying they will charge on dispatch - Estimated delivery Jan 10th.. Another hour long call here we go..
  8. mines still not arrived, on the phone to MS again now. No tracking details No delivery Cash taken from account Order vanished from history....
  9. Anyone had a delay on the expansion drive from MS?
  10. Sea of Thieves is staggeringly beautiful - not sure if it's 60fps upgraded or anything though. Gears 5 will be a good one, it's already eye popping on a one x. Forza Horizons 4?
  11. In exciting order news the MS site details have changed to pre-ordered and Est Delivery 10th. re: CD-Keys, they are absolutely dire these days, barely any savings and busted keys galore. They cancelled my pre-order of watch dogs (ult edition was £51 when they put it up) ON RELEASE DAY citing technical issues then put it back up at £79 seconds later.
  12. After hearing nothing from MS since pre-ordering the Series X, a pending charge has appeared in my bank statement tonight so it looks like it's happening.
  13. Playing on the Xbox with a HOTAS, really enjoying it so far, annoying that you have to have a controller on as some of the on screen prompts (like press X to begin right after loading) dont get recognized on the stick, it also means you need to have the standard controller plugged in via usb so it doesnt turn off every five minutes.... Also came across a bug in the Fleet Battle tutorial where I destroyed the Star Destroyer power generator before it asked me to and wouldnt let me progress. restarting and waiting till I was required to destroy it sorted things.
  14. I've got a Titan too (work from home and game in it so it gets a lot of use), absolutely sorted my back, was a pricey but utterly worth it purchase for me.
  15. re: performance, on my xb1x I changed the display mode from 4k to "best performance" and it stopped the fans going mental and defiantely ran smoother.
  16. I finished it this morning, the campaign was great, absolutely loved it. I was pretty under powered at the end especially the final mission was quite tough. I skipped most of the side missions to plough through as I didnt want to do any multiplayer before I'd completed the campaign (thanks to the spoiler warning when you pick it at the main menu). Edit: You can go back to any skipped side missions post campaign as info. You can press up on the d-pad at the wartable to swap modes
  17. Im 11 Hours in, really enjoying it. Not even going to attempt to disuade anyone thats already made up thier mind but I'll basically say this is superhero Anthem. Absolutely love Kamala, was utterly wrong about who I thought I'd like to play and who I actually do like playing. everyone feels very different apart from basic attacks. Combat is quite different from the beta with lots of tactical changes and skill trees changing your version of each hero a lot. It takes ages to unlock anyone via the story but I recommend you do play it as its really quite fun. Dying causes a ridiculously
  18. Had another quick go at lunch, paused it to make a sarnie, came back and bang, 14gb update... thanks
  19. I like loot, I like superheroes, I like beat em ups and I like coop, I'm really enjoying myself to be honest as I thought I would during the beta. I't got a long way to go to compare to similar titles but its scratching that part of my brain that enjoyed such bobbins as Too Human and I'm hugely just enjoying Kamala and her story. It's not going to change your mind if you didn't enjoy the beta but I think for those that like the setting and characters they will get a lot out of it. Note: I went halves with a gameshare friend £46 (cdkeys) I definitely wouldn't have took the plunge full pri
  20. I'm going to ignore the umpteenth time you've had a pop because I liked something and move on with a different angle, what would you like it to do that the beta currently doesn't? Have you left them feedback to let them know (you know the entire reason for betas) , if so what? I already said it's not brilliant I just got some fun out of it. Will it sustain months of gaming? hell no. Am I going to buy it full price - not in a million years. but smashing around with friends was good fun, like a 3D streets of Rage with bolt on loot. Actually it did feel a bit Anthem dare I say... My take:
  21. Im sorry I offended you by enjoying something, I shall remember to be an rllmuk bitter old man in the future.
  22. lll be honest, as a fan of MUA and comics in general, I loved this, just really enjoyed playing as the heroes and smashing stuff up, even moreso with friends. Yes it's not an absolute masterpiece but it was really fun, and that trumps flaws for me. I do think people are just doing the queue up to internet bash yet again.
  23. you can get a code here if you're on Virgin you can buy a code for 1.49 on cdkeys here (it says xbox one but there is a choice of platform when you redeem it at https://avengers.square-enix-games.com/redeem/code
  24. Haha so you did, great minds Just gave it a go on an OG Ps4, not as smooth but still really fun. Also I was some chips, I am part of the problem
