  1. I really liked this. Reduced the quantities of sugar and soy sauce, could’ve got away with not adding the deglazing water and next time I’ll do some veg on the side instead of putting carrots in.
  2. Giving this a go in an hour so, looks very good!
  3. Started this tonight and only played for a half hour or so (hope it saved!) so very quick impressions. Looks great, driving is terrible, combat seems weird, London is pretty recognisable which is good. Does feel Incredibly rushed though.
  4. Tried disabling the HDMI Audio option but kept on throwing up an error around the av receiver not liking it. Guess it looks like downing the volume to 0 is the way forward. It would be cool to get some sort of prompt on screen with options on what you want to do once it detects a headset though.
  5. Its got people talking about the show, thats for sure. Did they also go all out this year with the more obscure technical challenges, I'm not exactly a patisserie expert but some of the things they were asked to make seemed well out of the range of a home baker.
  6. When you put it like that I guess so should probably stop looking at this as a continuation from the previous weeks and instead as one off tasks as you say. Demographics was a poor choice of word, what I was trying to convey was that for a baking competition there wasn't that many people with actual baking skills so they just picked a load of different people with adequate skills. I dunno, maybe I'm expecting too much from this from a skills and quality level and should just take it as an enjoyable hour-ish of telly.
  7. Ahh yeh I found that slider yesterday when going through every menu and option and managed to increase the volume there. Will try the disabling hdmi audio out as well before plugging them in as well. Thanks to all for the advice.
  8. I think the quality of the home bakers just wasn't good enough compared to previous years, so many challenges had half finished or totally borked submissions at the end. Could be COVID related but could also me the producers trying to get certain demographics in and ignoring their actual baking abilities. Don't mind the Lucas & Fielding side show overall but might take another series to tweak it. Having Laura in the final was just a mind boggling decision, she's been consistently poor yet Hermine has one bad week and she's out seemingly based on that only. Be good i
  9. No I’ve turned pass through off but I’m guessing as it’s powered and reviving a signal it will keep playing the sound... I just assumed that the Xbox would know a headsets connected and would kill all audio via hdmi
  10. Evening, Is there anything special I need to do to get the audio to come out of just the headset when plugged into the controller? Have poked around the settings a bit but can’t see how to set it to headset only. The only workaround I have is to mute the av receiver but then the mute graphic stays on the screen all the time which is a bit annoying. Series X is connected to the av receiver which in turn connects to the telly. The headset is being recognised fine as audio does come through it. Its a Chinese branded Amazon type jobbie rather than a know
  11. Thanks, took a few mins to set up but it working as expected... massive time saver, i lost count how many times I have searched for SNES games and then clicked the tiles!
  12. Is that using the shortcuts app on iOS? I don’t suppose you have a guide on how to set that up?
  13. Thanks, claimed
  14. DPD Prince is about 10 minutes away, seemed to have lucked out this week with deliveries. EDIT: that was for the free Stadia that google were giving away so big disappointment. But them 10 minutes after him the Royal Mail chap turned up with it. Will have a play after lunch.
  15. I did a couple yesterday and it was quite fun just zooming around the environment with the drone, shame it doesn't go treetop height and have a video mode, after watching some of the excellent drone footage in some of the episodes of top gear quite fancied giving it a go.
  16. Ahh interesting... What is she supposed to have done?
  17. The jelly art cakes looked good, checking through YouTube there are some serious artists out there. Need to find someone selling those in London. I think all reality style shows have had a massive dip in quality of participants, as mentioned up thread they seem to ignore actual quality and just go for characters. At least they didn’t do a sky history and get a neo-nazi on.
  18. I don’t think it’s possible, would be great to have a link to either locally stored music or Spotify/iTunes playlists.
  19. I think I I’ve spent more time in this game driving around and doing the non racing stuff than the actual racing elements. Found all the barns and beauty spots this evening and raced a fighter jet.
  20. Ahhhh never knew that... that'll save loads of time for the barn finds, glad I popped in the thread. Fired it up on the Series X last night and wasn't expecting to be as good as it was, and it was pretty special on the One X as it was.
  21. Strange, didn't notice it as much before on the One X. I'll try and find the track again and will see if I can get a screenshot to try and highlight what I mean. Gave me the same weird feeling like when I walk down escalators.
  22. I got a bit of Forza 7 in yesterday and noticed a really weird visual effect. On one of the circuits the road surface had textured grooves in it and once you got to a decent speed it gave the effect of being one continuous pattern and the car was kinda floating on it. So the road and car were almost stationary and the scenery and sky were whizzing around. Is this because its in 60fps now or am I getting some sort of motion sickness?
  23. Played Tetris Effect for the first time last night right before bed. Is it possible to get screen burn on your eyes, that was immense!!!
  24. Sadly after PS4, Switch and One X shenanigans no dog photo this year. Have been copying data for the last hour, another half hour or so and I can actually play something on it!
