    Mortal Kombat 11 | April 23rd 2019

    I'm in two minds about preordering this. I'm still really enjoying X and haven't really rinsed it yet. I've probably only completed the standard tower with half the roster and haven't really dug into more than a handful of characters. Not gone through the Krypt either. Though I can't help thinking that the online will drop off a cliff when 11 launches. So I may hold off until the price drops. Who am I kidding? Preordered.

    Oh yeah, you commented on that, didn't you? Sounds suspiciously like we're doing exactly the save things at the mo. Is there a way to see Xbox friends progress on stuff like that? A bit of friendly competition might be a good motivator. Are we friends on Xbox?

    Think I'll be putting my credit from Microsoft Rewards towards this. Possibly the Premium version, depending on what you get. I've been playing X(L) quite a bit recently, which is really, really good fun. And I like what I'm seeing of this one so far. Looks good.

    On Fortune Island or the mainland? The Fortune Island ones are really easy - they must be, if I completed them - but some on the mainland just take the piss. I also think it's overly sensitive when it comes to the scoring zone. There's been a few times when I've been fully on the road and it's not been giving me points.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    I keep feeling the need to collect em all, but then kinda wonder why. I only use a couple of cars...

    Have you ever completely mastered a game?

    Gran Turismo 3 This came along at a time where I had the time to get really good at a game and I was obsessed with it. I played it so much that I reached the point where I could gold all the licence tests first time - this verged on a rhythm action game, it was essentially a question of the right input at the right time. Since I had a couple of memory cards, I kept an "ideal start" save - all licences gold with minimum days played - which I would copy onto my main card and work my way through the game from the start. Even without the cars awarded for getting gold on all licences, I could play through the game from the start with minimal buys - only using prize cars to enter races (there were a couple of cars you needed but couldn't win) and doing minimal tuning (as you got into the final sets of races, you had to tune, and sometimes max out, your car to be even vaguely competitive). Some race series were absolute slogs and some were just stupidly hard because the AI pretty much straight up cheated, so I only actually did those ones a few times. But everything else I could walk through... And all this was done with a Dual Shock, not a wheel.

    I have no hope of winning one. Might see if there are any in the auction house

    Evidently there's a big ish update today that brings back Mitsubishi. Which I nice. I do like an Evo...

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    I've completed the Fortune Island DLC now, as much as you can complete it - I've beaten the end races, found all the treasure chests, three stared everything. So, full of piss and vinegar, I went back to the mainland and thought "I'll work through the drift challenges, I had very few problems with the Fortune Island ones". Spent about half an hour trying the one closest to where you come back to before rage quitting a few thousand points short of three stars.

    Have you ever found a game too hard?

    Driver There's always a point in fighting games where I can't get my fingers to input the commands with the correct timing so I can't get past a couple of hit combos. This invariably means I never complete training modes.

    Do you cheat on games?

    When I had the time, I used to play a lot of Open Transport Tycoon Deluxe. I've always played in sandbox mode (no AI companies) and used the cheat menu extensively. The fun for me wasn't the business side of things, it was building huge transport networks. The what?

    Do you cheat on games?

    Yep, all the time. I love a good cheat or exploit, I do. I only play single player games, so it's only me I'm hurting. I don't get a lot of gaming time, so if I can skip the bits I don't like, I will. I've used Action Replay devices from the C64 up to PS2, hex editors, trainers... I even worked out a way to cheat on the original Xcom (the save games were stored as a series of files with helpful names like "bases.dat", "soldiers.dat" and "money.dat" that you could just use DOS to copy from one savegame to another). I've been exploiting the AI in Forza Horizon 4 of late to avoid too much grinding.
  13. Last time I checked, anything Forza was holding its value. The original Forza Horizon was about fifteen quid second hand not that long ago.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    Is it just me, or is the sound even more buggy these days. Played yesterday for a good half hour where only loading screens had sound. After it crashed, I rebooted and the sound was all over the place - the usual one engine note and some weird things where bump and crash effects would play a couple of seconds after the actual bump or crash
  15. For PlayStation, last I heard, the process now is an automated TRC check (done in Liverpool) them a content test that evidently only scratches the surface (done in India these days). As opposed to all TRC tests, content tests and a full playtest being done in Liverpool, as it was in the PS1, PS2 and into the PS3 days. Though how good the game was wasn't within the remit of QA, it was always "does it work?", not "is it any good to play".
