  1. Another Arcade racer which I loved and haven't heard mentioned in ages is GTi club remake on PS3


    Again another Arcade racer gem by sumo (puts hotshots racing to shame) and remember having fantastic force feedback support to. Had some great times online with it as well.


    Makes me sad the state of arcade racer scene these days. Forza horizon pretty much closest we get.

    No chance my friend, the cars are exceptionally bouncy and the handling is just the right amount of drifty.  It's great! (Especially on PC as the frame rate is better). Got it from eBay last week for £2 and I'm playing it lots.

    I have it on 360 and pc. Pc might run at 60fps but the frame Pacing is way of, which makes it feel worse than 360 version. Only way to fix it is to restart the race. So puts championship out of question and only single race viable. It's a shame there was never a fix :angry:

    I noticed today that Dishonoured 2is no longer on the “leaving soon” list on Gamepass. It was there up until yesterday.

    Good job as i`m currently playing through Dishonored 1 for the first time and was gutted when it came up as leaving.  Fingers crossed they put Prey back up to as i never got round to playing that either.

    Any recommendations on where to get the codes from?  Doesn't have to be cheap, just reliable.

    Got my 12 months gold from shopto last week for 40 sheets. Instant delivery no problems.  

  5. Microsoft really pulling out all the stops on the run up to launch.  Hopefully see Dishonored 2 come back on Game Pass as its shortly leaving and i`m currently playing through 1 atm for the first time :( Might hold of on buying Doom Eternal now aswell as you know where thats headed :D 


    Wonder if Ghostwire: Tokyo will end up exclusive for Xbox then :eyebrows:




  6. Picked this up on steam, played for an hour wasnt that impressed tbh.  Not a fan of the graphical style (Virtua Racing meets Fortnite springs to mind) tracks are unforgettable and don`t get me started on the AI.  Disappointed is a understatement.  After the fine work Sumo has done over the years with Sega ports and Sonic all star racing, I`m surprised this is the best they can come up with!  


    Anyway, still got my 360 under the tv with Outrun 2, Daytona, Sega Rally, Ridge Racer 6, PGR4 on for some Arcade racer goodness. :D



  7. After seeing what Microsoft and Sony have to offer, think I`m gonna stick with my PC.  The only thing that would of pushed me towards a PS5 is Horizon zero dawn 2, and with it coming out on ps4, that will do nicely :D 


    TBH if i pick anything up short term it will be series S, as that suits my needs for living room and will be able to cross play game pass stuff (PC/Series S)


    With me having a RTX 2070 and 2700x cpu, I`ve been next gen 2 years ago, so this launch is nothing that I haven`t already seen my PC do.  And with decent exclusives no where in site and Sony's expensive pricing strategy, PS5 has totally lost my interest.

    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 another month. I then turned off Auto Renew again and upgraded to Ultimate. On the first screen it said the upgrade from Gold to Ultimate would cost £1 but when I finally confirmed it showed £10.99.


    So after all that I've got 27 months of Game Pass Ultimate for around £91 which is about £3.37 a month. :omg:

    Cheers for heads up.  Paid up till nov next year on ultimate for the grand total of £40.  Bargain!

    Looks like the party is over for cheaper game pass on the PC. 17th onwards it will be going up to £8.99 ($9.99)  I guess...Still good value. Guess it's finally coming out of beta. Looking at my backlog of games I currently own it won't be for me!


    Dam it, Wondering how long it would be before my £1 PC Game pass subs per month came to an end.  Looks like that day has finally arrived :(


    Saying that, still a good price when you put ea play into the mix on top.  Wouldn`t sub every month though, only odd times when there is something I want to play.

  10. Will go nicely alongside my 1080p Panasonic plasma :D  Wasnt interested in 4k side of next gen consoles, this will suit alot of gamers out there inc myself perfectly.  Also a far more acceptable price to.

  11. Just signed up for the year via shopto offer. Cracking value for the price. Been messing round with the streaming side. Not a bad work around for playing back catalogue of PS2 and PS3 games. seems to play ok on my 60mb connection for the most part with minimal image breakup and lag.

    Being able to download ps4 games is where it's at though. Finding far more to play on here than gamepass. 

    Currently playing through Spiderman, which I never got round to playing. Also dusted of my 3d glasses and playing through bound to. Plenty more on here I want to try like gravity rush and Bloodborne, but will limit myself to a couple of titles at a time.

    Overall well impressed and a definite contender to gamepass.

    I have the latest nvidia driver and 2080ti and at dlss 1440p it was still hanging around the 40-45ish fps mark which is what I was getting months ago. Am I missing something? 


    Im running 2070 at 1440p DLSS at everything medium (dont see any difference between high tbh except frame rate) with all ray tracing effects on except debris.  


    I`m finding on foundation dlc averages round 50-70fps for the most part.  Can drop into 40s when it get really busy though.  Usually I wouldn`t except this sort of frame rate, but with my new freesync monitor, you dont notice the frame rate drop the same and smooths it out. God bless Freesync/Gsync.  


    Turning Ray Traced Diffuse lighting and contact Shadows of, with just Reflections can easily keep me cooking over 60 though.  Struggling to turn them of after having them on though :D 

  13. Been playing The Foundation DLC yesterday and a little today, don`t want to rush through it.  Taking your time and soaking everything up is how to play this. 


    If you loved Control, you will love this.  This a a full on campaign (4-5 hours i believe) with a massive new area to explore.  The story is as weird as ever and have just had a nice chat with the former which was bonkers.


    Also last mission i have just done made me laugh to (you will know which one when you reach it)


    The Foundation is beautifully crafted like the rest of control and no corners have been cut when it comes to presentation and missions.


    Perfect addition to the main game, definitely will get your moneys worth compared to other dlc out there.  


    If your remotely a fan of Control, owe to to yourself and the developers to pick this up.







  14. Finished it yesterday.  Overall really enjoyed it and a worthy sequel.  But it wasn't without it`s flaws though.  


    First of the game is way bigger in scale then I thought it was ever gonna be.  Especially Niaowu.  At first I thought i was gonna be a promenade and main stretch, but really opens up as you progress.  The same with Bailu village.  As for the story, reminded me of previous 2 tracking down certain tasks down to the last quarter of the game where it ramps up big time. The only thing i found the game lacking, was characters unlike in one and 2.  Other than Shenhua there no one else you really click with.  Not going to much into these cause of spoilers.


    Also I never been a huge fan of the gambling side and felt forced to have to plough through it a period of time, saving and reloading saves all the time for me to progress. Even though i wasnt sure of the change to the fighting system, I really started to appreciate toward the later parts in the game as I managed to scrape together enough cash to unlock some of the more kick ass scrolls.


    If i was to score it, probably around an 8.  For me the budget wasnt the issue, more the choice in gameplay decisions sometimes which hampered flow of the game.  Also coming of back of Yakuzas, it shows how far open town games have come.


    Glad I laid down the $100 on kickstarter to make it happen and still can`t believe we are here talking about it.


    Will most likely pick it up on pc later on as the ps4 framerate is pretty dire and the loading in on assets in niaowu is shocking.


    Can`t wait for Shenmue 4 :D

    You can? I’ve been trekking back to my house.


    Also a telephone booth which doesn’t double up as a save point, annoyed me more than it should.

    Yep, press R1 and goto settings. Highlight where it says save and press x. Job done.

    Are trophies not enabled yet, they don’t even show them at all on my machine? I’m playing on a base PS4 and it is loud but nothing as bad as other here have and it’s still a lot quieter than my Dreamcast ever was.

    Yes trophies are working, I`ve unlocked a few.

  17. Done a few hours on Shenmue 3 now (can't remember last time I played a game this much in one day haha)


    Starting to get hang of fighting system now as it has been altered a fair bit from the previous 2. Don't seem to be any throws upto yet, not sure about later. (I want my dark side hazuki) There are plenty of sparing partners though to help hone your skills.


    Another thing I noticed is, that it doesn't open up bailu village in one go, rather takes the approach of opening up areas bit by bit as you advance through the story which keeps you focused on one area and gets you curious what it's gonna reveal next. 


    Plenty of dialog conversations with shenua at the end of the evenings, which opens up ryu and shenuas background which is a nice touch.


    Also a mention to health system, don't take long to get used to and can't make my mind up if I prefer it or not. But it definitely gives food/drink meaning now though.


    Been a long time that a game has got me this excited and can't wait to get back to it.



  18. Played around 3 hours upto yet, awesome stuff.  Yu has done this game justice by staying faithful to 1 &2, whilst bringing upto date. All i will say is fans wont be disappointed by what i`ve played.


    Also I went for ps4 version and had played trial version of pc maxed.  Visually doesn`t seem to be anything in it other than ps4 framerate, which hovers between 30 and 60fps.
