  1. I downloaded Lonely Mountain on some recommendations here. Did not disappoint.
  2. Late to the party, but I started watching Staged this week. Funny shit. Think 'The Trip' with David Tennant and Michael Sheen, a bickering buddy comedy set in lockdown. Superb writing.
  3. If anyone is looking for a Series X for launch, I have a 'spare' for sale. Pick up from South London. Edit: now gone.
  4. I don't have any reason to doubt MS regarding series S performance, but they haven't done themselves any favours by focusing on the reveal of the X so far and showing a lot less of the S. If they showed them side by side playing the same game at different resolutions it would be pretty convincing.
  5. Yep, same here. The various weapon upgrades change things significantly. My right hand is pretty fucked from holding the controller too tightly and hammering the attack button. This game.
  6. I haven't watched it yet, we'll be watching the bleeped version on Sunday with the kids. But I always find it interesting how people can relate completely differently to the comedians in this show. It's like a microcosm of comedy in general I suppose. You often see people saying they can't stand a certain comedian's style, one that's clearly very popular with others. But, with a Taskmaster series sometimes you'll see people warming to certain comedians as a series develops. It's like a gateway show to acts you are not familiar with. Plus the vibe between c
  7. I wonder if there will be a bleeped version available. Our while family (kids 5 & 8yrs) watched that version on Dave and the kids loved it.
  8. So this never happened. Too much to upgrade and play with still. To anyone struggling a bit: Keep going. I really think it's worth it. You'll improve each run, and you'll get better boons the more you upgrade at the mirror and the more nectar you give each god. And when you beat the game once, it gets easier, at least for a while, because you are now upgrading your weapons alongside better boons. This game is just so good.
  9. I don't think there's a big difference between early episodes and later episodes in terms of acting. This may not be for you.
  10. Hollow Knight. Never beat Hornet The Return. But loved almost everything up until that point. Great game, just can't quite make it.
  11. This is definitely a thing, yeah. But it's also pretty funny when you notice it. It's like a dance. And the flourish is the particularly audacious claim that any members calling them out on it must be raving fanboys themselves.

    Xbox Game Pass

    I have used it on Android, and I've not got an Xbox right now, I have a series X pre-ordered. You download the app, connect a controller by Bluetooth (I used a DS4) and that's it. It's streamed using MS servers. I played Forza on it. Very impressive I thought, though not perfect in regards to consistent framerates. I think it would be perfect for turn-based games. The screen is small on a phone (I ha lve a 5inch screen) so it's tricky for games you've never played before as it's tough to read explanatory text. They have a 'Perfect for mobile' section in the app, so thos
  13. So I have a spare 1TB external SSD. Sounds like I could use that to store games I enjoy but don't currently play, and then it would presumably only take minutes to shuffle games back and forth between the Series X and external SSDs. Is that right?
