  1. Tried demo last night on PC, looks lush!!  Ralph and his team have really excelled themselves on every level with this.  Visually looks fantastic and far more interesting than FH3.  PC performance is on point this time round!!!  Running a I5-4690K with a GTX 970 and performance is rock Solid 60fps on high settings :D


    Challenges seem ok by what i tried of the demo but did not want to spoil it to much. Can`t wait for it on Game Pass next month

    Game Pass is a funny one for me. It’s brilliant value, but I just don’t play enough games to justify it.

    Thats a shame cause for the price you cant argue with the value it gives. I havent brought a game since having it. I just see it like my netflix sub now, when i feel bored or want to chill, browse the catalogue and away i go. Rocket league has just come on and is perfect for 10mins or half hour if your struggling for time. Constantly in and out of sea of thieves to. Also completed rime and coming to the end of Resident evil remaster on game pass. No way would of played these 2 otherwise if it wasnt for game pass and had a great time on both. There is always something on game pass to fill in the time no matter how much you have. 


    Oh and having Forza horizon 4 at launch on game pass is great news. Would have brought it anyway, but with having gamepass no need to

    Loving the beta! Any chance the base xb1 version will have a 60fps option? 

    Second. Enjoyed the game, but felt aweful playing at 30fps. Even if they added framerate smoothing like in forza horizon it would of been better. If there is no option for 60fps on xbone its a pass for me :(

  4. Me and a friend took to the seas for a couple of hours this morning, ended up doing a 3 part treasure hunt.  2nd part took us a while to figure out where the treasure was and to top it of a skeleton took to a cannon on the island and sunk our ship grrhhh.  Luckily we retrieved the treasure and pulled up a new ship.


    But the worst part is as we finished the quest and was going back to the outpost for our reward, we were blind sided and attacked by another crew and long story short ended up sinking us and lost everything :(  Felt like 2 hours down the pan.  I know thats the name of the game but still frustrating when it happens!  Suppose i will learn for next time to keep dropping the treasure of instead of hoarding it. 


    Still loving what i played upto yet :D

  5. Had a good session on this yesterday. Tried it with some randoms and got lucky, everyone was chatting and having a laugh which is what this game is about. Also tried it with a mate later on for a hour and had alot of memorable moments. Especially being caught in a storm and having to work our asses of to keep the ship afloat.


    For me this is the perfect game for where i am in life. I havent got time no longer to spend hours getting great at a game or leveling up to the max, so i can unlock stuff and stay competitive. For me these are the reasons i dont really bother with multiplayer gaming anymore. Where with this i know i can come back into it anytime i like and know im not at a disadvantage.


    Im sure rare will build on the formula down the line, but for the moment there is more than enough content to keep me going with what time i have.

    Day one impressions


    1. It doesn't handhold in the slightest. There's a tutorial but it's almost nothing. A very brave decision by Rare that I hope pays off for them. It was certainly fun learning the basics tonight.

    I agree with this. I sailed on my own first few times to get my head round how everything works. Tried to start of with a crew first but learned nothing this way.


    Also tried a merchant quest and again doesnt explain much. Tip: if you need 2 chickens make sure you get 2 cages; they dont fit in one :)


    Been switching between pc and xbox one. Pc definately way to play. Hitting stable 60fps on legendary settings on a gtx 970. Saying that still prefer playing xbox one as its hooked upto my plasma.


    Overall looking forward to trying it out again as there should be plenty on today.





  7. Picked this up over Black Friday and by what i played upto yet, I`m really enjoying it.


    Doesn`t have much depth in its combat system, but it`s nice sometimes just to have a quick pick up and play game you can get stuck into in shorts bursts without remembering where you left of from last time and what button does what.


    Has plenty of platforming within the levels to fill out the combat sections and reminds me of the earlier days of videogames in its execution.  Graphically looks lush aswell.


    Overall well worth picking up on the cheap if your after a platformer/beat em up up can chuck on for half hour here and there





  8. Until Dawn (ps4)

    Yakuza Zero (ps4)

    Horizon Zero Dawn (ps4)

    Mirrors Edge Catalyst (pc)

    Quantum Break (pc)

    Titanfall 2 (pc)

    Uncharted Lost Legacy (ps4)

    Zelda BOTW (Wii U)


    Has been a fantastic year for gaming for me, played some cracking titles this year. Titanfall 2 campaign was the biggest suprise for me, loved it.


    Some big GOTY contenders, with yakuza zero, botw and horizon zero dawn being the main ones for me. Will be difficult to decide out the 3.

    God it looks beautiful, makes me want Nintendo to hurry up and have their console business fail, cause we'd get a much better looking and running Zelda on PS4 (and of course play it on Vita/ any mobile phone for those saying "only Switch you can play on toilet/bus/etc", seem to forget you can play PS4 games on Vita/Android/iOS). Nintendo and their dev teams make my favourite video games of all time, I just hate how ass-backwards their hardware constantly is.


    I do kinda agree with this.  I just wish Nintendo went down the dedicated console route instead of what we have with the switch, which is essentially a jack of all trades, master of none.  Which is why my Wii u will be my last Nintendo purchase, until they go back to producing a dedicated console or go multi platform.


    As for BOTW running on CEMU, looks lovely.  Currently playing on Wii U and still looks great, but seeing it on emulation does get you mind ticking over what Nintendo could of done if they weren`t limited by there own hardware.

  10. Looks promising, been waiting for something like this to come along on current gen platforms. Cause its definately a genre that has lacked this gen.


    Thats why i have had to go back to my 360 for my arcade racing goodness. Pgr4, burnout paradise, outrun, daytona, sega rally, split second, ridge racer 6, the list goes on.


    Heres hoping to 60fps.

    Hopefully, i just found m,y email in Junk.  Called the store a few times but no answer and probably wont get to it until tomorrow. 

    You will be fine. Just collected mine now no probs. Guy said head office told them to hold them all until collected due to system error.

    Check your spam folder. My email went there, with no change to the "In Process" status on the site.


    Bear in mind though that it's past the 2 days they'll hold it for, so you may have lost it.

    You was spot on. It was in spam. Just phoned them and said system has been down all weekend so alot of people arent getting any txt/emails and was told to hold them all. Gonna collect now. Many thanks

  13. Managed to get a pre order in on smyths before they hiked the price a while back.


    I did it on a collect from local store but still stuck at processing stage from last week.  Anyone else in the same boat? Can you just go and collect or do you have to wait for the txt/email?

  14. Its amazing when you think about it, how quick most people dumped their Snes and collection for better and greater things in 1995/97 Playstation/Saturn/N64. Now we are going full circle and scurrying to get back the thing we couldn`t wait to get rid of all those years ago????


    After all these years, i still can`t figure out how the Human mind works, where a object can loose meaning so quickly and then to regain meaning once again years down the line.  


    Are we wanting the snes mini, because we will replay these games and think the last 20 years in gaming have got it wrong? Or are we looking for a time machine which will transport us back 20 years to a more simple life, more simple games and aren`t always chasing the latest and greatest!


    Or is it that people just see them as another object to scalp and make some money on side to spend on more pointless crap. Hmh.


    For me I have one pre ordered, I`m gonna admit. But I still can`t figure out why I have and if i really need it. 






  15. Played a couple of hours and is superb. 2048 is a big upgrade over the vita and no more framerate issues.


    Great value for money


    Dissapointed that they didnt add stereoscopic 3d support like the ps3 versions as ps4 would be perfect getting it to run at 60fps in 3d as ps3 version only managed 30fps. Any chance of a upddate later down the line please :D

    Playing on the WiiU game pad for the first time tonight. I know it's not HD, but I think it looks great! Also all framerate issues have vanished.


    Agreed, only just started really playing it as yakuza has been drawing me in. But the missus has some crap on the tv so decided to spark Zelda up on the Wii U controller. Looks really good.


    Being able to go from tv to portable on the switch, sorry Wii U is a life saver. 




  17. It is a thing of beauty.  Love the art style and direction it has gone. Its gonna be one hell of a ride.


    And seeing that everyone is posting their new shiny switch pics of zelda, heres one running on the once loved but not forgotten Wii U. And no left thumb stick issues in sight ;) IMG_20170303_153846549.thumb.jpg.701bdcfdf1b12f268ec525614a2f868c.jpg

    It's just dark/overcast in the Switch version at that point in the video isn't it?


    it is, but notice a a definite green push as well.  Overall the wii u colour palette looks more pleasing to my eyes than the switch.

    Just reserved the Wii U version at my local Argos for £48.99 for immediate pickup. 


    Same here, need to get dust of my wii u first and get some charge in the pad, been dead for the past 2 months :D

    So glad I cancelled my Switch pre-order and went with the WiiU version as there's literally no difference between the 2 -



    Whats with the dreadful matrix style green tint on the switch version or is it the way its been captured? Especially around the 4 min mark into the vid. Going to pick up the Wii u version in abit, cant wait.


    Just been watching last gamers thoughts, he wasnt blown away either. Dont think ive seen a positive review yet. The hardware looks flimsy and very underwhelming. Its gonna be a hard sell for Nintendo. 

  21. Been playing this on and off for the past week and what a fantastic game. Well polished, good story and you dont know who you gonna bump into next and what crazy side mission you will end up doing. 


    Currently investigating Tachibana real estate and have done the most bizarre side quest ever which involves underwear ;)


    Then there is all the mini games you can waste endless amounts of time on and probably havent seen all of them still. I love this game, if you have a ps4, do yourself a favour and track down a copy.


    Welcome back Sega we missed you
