  1. This is bloody great - shame the EP its from is a little mediocre
  2. Kena: Bridge of Spirits What you get if you cross a large helping of Zelda with a side order of Pikmin, a dash of Uncharted, a smidge of a hundred odd PS2 platformers and a large measure of Dark Souls and chuck it all in a blender with a Pixar film. Its very likely to be my GOTY
  3. Well I'm in - got it for £30 from CDkeys pre-order and I think it looks great* *I actually liked The Avengers game
  4. Pleased about Forgotten City, I oh so nearly bought that last night using my Epic £10 voucher. My kids will be pleased with Echo Generation as they loved Riverbond
  5. Weirdly looking at the install sizes on PC, 3 remastered is a mere 18gb rather than the new version of 2 is 54gb (1 is 20gb for reference). Suggests that the work on 3 maybe somewhat lighter touch than it’s predecessor
  6. Well it’s not the best deal in the world but as I have no choice but to get the AC paid DLC for an obsessed wife and 2 kids over 3 separate switches buying one family subscription rather than the same thing 3 times alone makes it a bargain. (and the N64 stuff a nice freebie)
  7. Technically the Gamepass PC launch in Beta was June 2019 so we are talking years now (albeit just over 2). I’ve had no real issues with it either but there are multitude reports of issues all over the internet of problems on different builds (the resetera thread/poll on the matter record just under 50% of respondents having problems). Gamepass on PC is a great service but I think there’s no denying it really doesn’t work very well on everyone’s system
  8. This was bundled with my new laptop but have had to wait until release to claim the key. Will probably give it a spin in the near future
  9. It only converts to 12 months if you don’t have an active Ultimate subscription. You have to let Ultimate expire, then load the Live and then subscribe to Ultimate again. The remaining live subscription then converts on a month for month basis.
  10. Yeah actually the occasional difficulty spikes have a real bite to them which actually gives the game a distinctive edge given the Pixar-style theming. I took down down Taro last night and it was very satisfying when he finally went down. There’s a nice mix of the Zelda boss battles and general brawling with the clear weak spots for exploitation for certain abilities combined with the parry and dodge hack and slash. It has got a lot in common with Fenyx but far tighter and unlike that game it gets trickier as it goes along rather than the typical open world inverse difficulty curve.
  11. Its only those you’ve claimed sadly (I forget occasionally).
  12. Actually it could be that as pretty sure I used the 360 version as it’s already in my library and didn’t know there was a Xbone version (which is presumably the one In Gamepass). Although the PC version didn’t work at all and that is definitely the Gamepass version. Dead Space 3 is a 360 title so it not working would be consistent with this, although god knows why they are listing it as a qualifying game…
  13. Is that really a spoiler…I mean it won’t even make sense until you near the end of the game. Actually it doesn’t even really make a huge amount of sense when you’ve completed the game, which is why the writer dlc is essential content. And really the actual ending to the game is really in the AWE content on Control which is little more than a teaser for a sequel.
  14. Dunno it’s been a specific problem with these 500 point top ten promos for a few months now, the 360 games don’t seem to make it pop (but they do work for other reward promos such as the weekly game pass achievement or the daily one in the rewards app). FWIW I tried Limbo twice (on Xbox and also on PC as separate achievement list) and got the wrong way achievement twice (how did I miss that when I originally played it…) and neither worked. Undertale (which is a Xbox One game) worked fine
  15. McGee has been teasing/trying to get funding for a sequel for years (Alice: Asylum) Hopefully he will get there eventually https://www.americanmcgee.com/category/projects/alice-sequel/
  16. Ah I tend to dodge rather than parry/block unless the mechanic clearly needs you to so that’s maybe why I hadn’t noticed it
  17. It’s probably closer to GoW (and you can remap them controls if you like, I’ve never got used to having light and heavy attack not on the face buttons) but you’re right the combat lacks the reliance on combos of Gaiden or DMC but it’s a lot faster than Dark Souls and Kena doesn’t really have a stamina bar at all, the rot attacks charging is closer to the magic/powe charging mechanic from GoW. The combat is a lot simpler than all of these games mind as it’s not really the main focus, which is why the huge difficulty spike on the bosses is a bit surprising. Either way it’s navigated around by dialling down the difficulty if required and the main charm of the game is the exploration and light puzzle solving really, the combat is just there to give it a bit of fizz.
  18. So I started this and as was probably predictable (as it looked tailor made to hit my buttons) I love it. Only a couple of hours in, just got to the first of no doubt many find 3 things to summon a boss points, but been having a lovely time wandering around and finding all the things the rot can interact with. So far it’s more God of War (2018) crossed with Uncharted with a small side order of Pikmin rather than bringing to mind PS2 platformers or Zelda. The combat is surprisingly intense once you get out of the village. My god it looks so pretty though.
  19. I hit the buy button so I’ll confirm on Wednesday if no one else does prior to that
  20. Slightly disappointing as you can dock with them attached on the 'old' model But I can live with that...
  21. The Hori split pad works fine with this right? I'm hovering over the buy button on Amazon now having been completely disinterested (no white ones but neon ones available on Wednesday) but I can't deal with the joycons and the lack of grip on handheld mode if my Hori sticks don't work.. Its clearly because I want to play Metroid on dat screen...
  22. My copy just arrived courtesy of Argos (got to love that same day delivery, I only ordered it at lunchtime). Feeling slight regret that I didn’t get the OLED to go with it, but I’ve already bought one Switch upgrade… Anyway @Cyhwuhx suggesting this is a refined 2d Zelda makes me suspect I am really going to love this
