  1. Star Wars Squadrons coming to GPU via EA Play in late March
  2. Completed Desperados 3 today. Really worth a play if you like the RTS genre or fancy playing an isometric Hitman. Here's hoping that Blades of the Shogun appears on GPU or on sale sometime soon.
  3. Looking at the blurb, it seems like a thematic follow up from Dogs of War. Which is also rather good and can be picked up for £2.99, or free for those on Prime. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Dogs-War-Adrian-Tchaikovsky-ebook/dp/B06XXJ4P9H/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?keywords=dogs+of+war+adrian+tchaikovsky&qid=1613086637&sprefix=dogs+of+war&sr=8-1
  4. I love the sound of the haptic triggers, but the cynic in me is concerned that there may be a higher fail rate in a controller with lots of gizmos and sensitive parts. My Switch controllers, for example, have the drift issues despite all the magic within them. The Series X just feels like a solid gaming workhorse. I get games at 4k60fps, and it runs near-silently with a controller that feels like it could withstand a few drops. I switch it on and it gets me into a game very quickly. Thanks to Game Pass I have not purchased a game for the system, yet my SSD is full of titles I am in
  5. Played through last week and finished last night. It is longer than the first game, but does not outstay its welcome at all. The first is just as good (IMO) - and, if you are not bothered about the storyline being spoiled by playing the second first then I would give it a play through. That said, Hollow Knight is also on GP, and is every bit the game that this but with a different style, if you want some variety.
  6. I liked it. Proper Trek storylines but with a self awareness of the ludicrous situations and very light touch social commentary. My favourite bit, from the last episode:
  7. Another vote for Ghibli. At that age, my son has a lengthy Fantastic Mr Fox phase as well.
  8. I enjoyed the first game more. Whilst lengthy, it felt like a tighter and more focused game. The sequel is great, and has some wonderful set pieces. But to my recollection the first felt like it was throwing new things at me right to the end, whereas after a point Shadow of War just dropped me into areas with a bunch of new castles to capture.
  9. AFAIK, yes. But there are ways to get around that on the Xbox.
  10. Agreed. If someone told me that it was a newly-released parody of the circumstances that led to Brexit set a hundred years ago, I'd believe them.
  11. The combat in this is tough, but I managed to compete it on Jedi Master and I'm not the best at such games. That said, if you are not looking for a Dark Souls experience you should drop the difficulty to a more enjoyable level to rattle through it. As a SW game it benefits from velocity, not being stuck on the same boss for days as you learn its attack patterns.
  12. Pro tip: switch off the characters' voices in the sound options.
  13. Was just coming to post that. The Series S is a bargain at RRP. An extra controller thrown in, at a time when stocks are limited a few days before Christmas, is madness. Edit: looks like it was a misprice as it has gone up to £299 now.
  14. I was in exactly your situation. XBL Gold on 360, shipped Xbox on the last gen entirely. I paid £1 to convert 3 years of XBLG to GPU.
