  1. This generation has seen more developers move away from just pushing graphics than any other. Rage 2 is a recent example of a game that runs at 1080p on the 4K consoles because the devs wanted 60fps performance. Lots more games have 60fps options, and dynamic resolution scaling is becoming standard. I disagree. You just have to look at the third party output on the Switch to see it's not the case. EA are actually paying another studio entirely to make a version of FIFA which runs on the Switch. Likewise, Microsoft had another studio build a completely separate version of Forza Horizon 2 for the Xbox 360.

    Xbox One Console Thread

    I just selected the update in the download list and chose “cancel download.” It even says something which basically means it won’t delete the whole game anyway but the whole system locked up for a second and the game had disappeared from my hard drive. I definitely didn’t choose “uninstall.”

    My Xbox is struggling to download at higher than 5Mbit/s. This is despite the network diagnostic tool saying my down speed is 70Mbit/s. Anyone know how to fix this? I’ve tried the daily restart but no joy. On top of this, I cancelled the update for Just Cause 4 and it deleted the whole bloody game off my HD. What an awful OS they’ve got on these things.

    Just Cause 4 - After Rain Comes Explosions

    Tried to jump on this only to find there’s a 12.2GB update out today. Few big features like redone lighting and more ammo capacity detailed here: https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2019/05/21/5-reasons-just-cause-4-spring-update-more-destruction/

    Just Cause 4 - After Rain Comes Explosions

    Apparently they prioritised performance this time around, so while it’s locked at 30fps, it often drops down to 720p on the base consoles. I’m visiting my brother next week so will download it on his OG Xbone and revel in the 720p grainy glory. I’m still loving it. Far more enjoyable than JC3. The new tether gadgets are so much fun. I find myself using them more than the weapons.

    Was it last year they gave this away free or the year before? Anyway, I’m looking forward to it.

    John Wick 3: Parabellum - May 2019

    ?! He’s brilliant! One of the best things about it. And JW2 has Peter Stormare repeating exactly what Nyqvist said except hammed up ten times as much! This actually sets the tone quite nicely for the rest of the film. You’re getting a low effort retread with no new ideas.
  8. With the caveat that I don’t think any games are entertaining to stream, I know some people like to watch people chill out and talk over a pretty laid back game, in which case this should fit the bill. In many ways it’s so dull (like during the travel between locations) that it feels a bit like watching someone stream it even when you’re playing it.

    The iOS gaming thread

    Has anyone played the Gardens Between? Looks interesting and is very highly rated on the store.

    Xbox Game Pass

    I think that’s a pretty much perfect description of it.

    Games that you nearly purchased but didn't

    Mass Effect Andromeda. I had it pre ordered, was hyped to have a game made with PS4 Pro in mind, etc. Then the memening happened. Still haven’t got around to trying it with the free trial. I’ve heard it’s actually alright.

    Xbox One X. I like the leaderboard stuff they’ve carried over from JC3. @Mr Do 71 has got some great records to beat.
  13. @Jamie John If you like arcade shooters, Resogun is one of the best. Nearly up there with Geometry Wars 2 as the best of its genre. Talos Principle is supposed to be excellent so I’ve picked that up as you mentioned it’s on sale. No doubt it’ll be on PS+ next month now. @Calashnikov I thought it was good. Definitely frustrating in places but I was more frustrated at myself for being crap at pinball than feeling it was totally random. Once I got into the flow of it I got much better at doing what I needed to.

    Thanks. It took a few minutes but seems to have gone through.

    I just tried to buy Talos Principle on PSN. It said something went wrong, but took £3.99 out of my wallet anyway. Now when I go to my download list it’s not there and if I try to add the game to my basket it says I’m not eligible to buy or download this item. Anyone had this before?
