  1. I’ve replayed the original Halo far more times than I’ve watched any film.
  2. It’s been inevitable for a while. Phil Spencer said a few weeks back that they’ll be raising prices at some point, so this looks like how they’re doing it.
  3. They gave RDR2 a 10 and it’s a worse game in pretty much every way than the original bar the graphics. Yes, I went there again! Seemed apt though, as that’s about the time I completely fell out of love with Edge.
  4. No wonder he cried after what they did to Luke’s character in that film. I’m only joking, it’s a nice story.
  5. I’ve just read the review and when they get to this bit they don’t even explain why it’s not for everybody. That statement leads me to think it must have niggly flaws, or that only people who love the genre will enjoy it, or anything really, but how are we supposed to know without them explaining?
  6. My point is that people seem to think it was fucked across the board, when it’s been absolutely amazing on the next gen consoles/PC/Stadia since launch, bar the odd graphical glitch. I agree they should have been rightly pulled for releasing it in the state they did on the the last gen consoles, but I still think they got too much vitriol and I think it put a lot of people off who had a machine capable of playing it. It should never have been developed for last gen consoles anyway. It’s far too ambitious.
  7. I know, sorry! It just does my head in that the rhetoric around cyberpunk is still that it was fucked at launch. Yes, it probably was on last gen consoles and quite possibly on PS5, but on Series X, and I presume PC, it was great. I just find it a shame that so many people have missed out on it. Still, since they’ve been patching it, it does seem like more and more people are getting to play it, which is great. I don’t think I’ll ever stop pulling people for being wrong about it though.
  8. Well, apparently it had the odd cosmetic bug, although I never encountered any myself, and they’ve tweaked some of the UI, but underneath it’s still the same brilliant game is was right back at launch.
  9. Always has been. On Series X, at least. All this talk in here has made me want to play it again. I’m lining up God of War as my Christmas game, but another run through this might take priority!
  10. Ah, I didn’t know that. The first one it is then. Thanks.
  11. No I haven’t, but I have got it somewhere. Maybe I should just go with that for my Christmas game instead then. I was only looking at the new one, because of most people saying it’s better than the first.
  12. Blimey. Better combat AND a better game than Elden Ring? That’s some praise between these two posts. I’m definitely making it my Christmas game, so impressions like these are great to hear. I just can’t see it coming anywhere close to Elden Ring.
  13. Yes, I was going to say something similar. I vaguely remember someone else having a problem with the BT deal, but I can’t remember who it was or how they resolved it. Sorry!

    The Man Utd Thread

    All fair points. All we can hope for now is that they do sell and they sell to the right buyer, who’s willing to put things right.

    The Man Utd Thread

    In that MUST statement, what do they mean by not a single penny invested? Don’t the crazy amount of players we’ve bought over the years since their arrival count? I’m no fan of the Glazers, but that bit doesn’t seem right to me.
  16. Sort of, but these S and X were developed in tandem, so in theory their plan should work out a lot better for developers this time around. I guess we won’t find out until the end of the generation, but I’d be surprised if they started to lock S owners out of games before the next gen arrived.
  17. I can’t find it now, but there was a video with one of the engineers a couple of years back who said it had been designed specifically to be able to play any game that is developed for Series X, just with lower res graphics, lower frame rate or a bit of both. It made total sense what he was saying, so I wish I could find the video. I wouldn't mind seeing it myself again as well, just to see exactly what was said.
  18. No, that’s not going to happen. A cutdown version of anything that runs on X will be available on S. They said as much back before the consoles launched.
  19. What do you mean by this? The X was never designed to play different games than the S. They’re basically the same console, with one being a cut down version of the other. All games that come to X will come to S too, just with less bells and whistles.

    The Man Utd Thread

    I’ll have a proper look into it today, but I agree it’s a bad situation and I don’t think Ronaldo could have made himself look any worse. I wonder who advised him to to a public interview, rather than discussing all his issues directly with the club.

    The Man Utd Thread

    Thanks, but that’s not convincing in any way. If anything he came across as though he was put on the spot and was struggling to find an excuse to get off the subject.

    The Man Utd Thread

    Have you got a link to it? The video I saw makes it look completely different, and to be honest I wish it was. Ronaldo knew what he was doing with that interview; making it all about him as usual. His ego knows no bounds. As much as I think his first stint at the club made him a legend, I honestly think the way he’s handled his return has been nothing short of pathetic and he deserves to have his contract terminated and his legacy tarnished. He could and should have handled it with a lot more maturity and humility.

    Somerville

    It controls like a dog though, which is where I presume most of the criticism is coming from.
  24. Thanks! That’s made my job a lot easier.
