  1. I reckon they’ve purposely shown as little as they can as a dig at modern trailers showing everything worth seeing and laying out the whole story in 2 minutes. After his first 2 films, I expect this to be brilliant.

    XBOX gamepass and Xbox app coming to switch?

    Ah yeah, that makes sense. Let’s see how they try and tackle it.

    Smaller install? I was thinking more along the lines of a small install to help with things, but the majority is server based. I've no idea really though, just spitballing.

    I really don’t understand it at all, but here’s some random, and probably completely mental, thoughts... Why would it be any more laggy than what we currently have? Is it because they’re having to pump the game through the internet as well? If that’s the case, how much bandwidth does our current online gaming stuff need? Can’t that be given a protected part of the bandwidth? Couldn't they install the part of the game that causes the problems and use their servers for everything else?

    There must be some other solution though, or else why are they doing it?

    I hear this mentioned a lot, but surely they’ve been working towards something that gets around this somehow? I’ve no idea what that might be, but I’m sure they know what they’re doing.

    That ultimate goal MS are aiming for is the perfect evolution of gaming for me. It’ll be interesting to see how this pans out. It’ll also be interesting to see how Sony react. They’ve undoubtedly got some amazing games, but they come across as very protective and insular with this kind of stuff. I’m actually surprised Nintendo are so open to the idea to be honest, but it can only be a good thing for gamers, in the long run.

    For me it’s alk about having as little clutter as possible. I’m currently using my Xbox as a media hub. I can play games, watch 4K Blu-rays, use Plex, iPlayer, Netflix, etc without having to continually swap inputs. The only reason I ever buy Nintendo consoles is for the few amazing exclusives I want to play, then it gets left to collect dust. I’d absolutely love it if I could just buy one console that covers all my needs and MS are the best at delivering that. Ultimately though, I wouldn’t really care who made the console as long as it covered everything. The only benefit I can see in the Switch is portability, like you said, but I’ve got zero interest in that.

    XBOX gamepass and Xbox app coming to switch?

    Well that’s my point really. I’m looking at it from a totally selfish perspective. I haven’t touched my Switch since Zelda and there’s nothing I want to play on it, so having access to the few Nintendo games I have to play on my Xbox, where I do all my gaming, would be perfect for me. You’re probably right though, but I can dream.

    I want it the other way. Hopefully this is just the beginning and we’ll soon have Nintendo on Xbox. That’d be amazing.
  11. Who are they? I mean, by the law of averages we must all know people like this. I can’t say I’ve ever spoken to anyone who’s admittedly had such weird views though.

    Rian Johnson Star Wars trilogy

    Probably the wrong thread, but when can we expect to see a trailer for Episode IX? When was the first trailer for VIII released?
  13. Yeah, I was more wondering why it had been latched onto in such a big and pervasive way. I don’t get why it’s more appealing than any other multiplayer mode, but loads of games seem to be shoe-horning it in and using it as a big selling point.
  14. Why has battle royale become such a buzzword? Isn’t it just another multiplayer mode, basically elimination on a big scale? It seems weird to me that it’s getting shoved into every genre possible. I’m getting old.

    The Man Utd Thread

    I got a notification on my iPhone earlier from the BBC Sport app saying that tomorrow night’s game has been postponed, but when I clicked through to read about, there was no article. It’s just the intern trying to be funny, isn’t it?

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    Sorry! It just fires me up with an irrational rage! No idea why.
  18. It’s not about the casting though, it’s about the tone. The original feels like a real world, all gritty and lived-in, with cynical characters and plenty of black humour. Struggling to make ends meet and being chancers to get what they wanted. The remake/sequel/whatever it is was so far off the mark in this respect. It felt like a Saturday morning cartoon, with bright, garish colours, caricatures rather than characters and no sense of threat because it was all so frothy. Like I said, they can cast whoever they like, but they have to get the feel of the world right. That’s the main hurdle in my eyes.

    The Man Utd Thread

    If only we could bring him in!
  20. I don’t think making one shit film in completely the wrong tone equates to impossible to please. They just made a mess of the last one. A new one that has the feel of the original - a more grounded film, but with excellent comedy performances, rather than an extended ad-libbed Saturday Night Live sketch - would go down a treat. Whether that has women, kids or whatever fronting it, it doesn’t matter. To me at least, anyway.

    Alita: Battle Angel

    I don’t get it. How does swapping around the words in the title allow them to name any sequels easier?

    Reading your condescending responses to everything has always been boring.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    You’re so difficult to discuss things with. Can’t you honestly see that those points I raised are detrimental to the game for a lot of people and you think that it’s because we’re all shit gamers who can’t be arsed, or are willing, to learn? I liked RDR2, but it would have been even better if they’d pushed those parts of the game as much as they did with the visuals. Game controls and menus have moved on and improved massively since the original RDR, but Rockstar chose to go backwards rather than forwards in those areas. And I haven’t seen anyone asking for a sandbox style structure to the progression, just less enforced, restrictive areas while you’re on a story mission. But none of this is relevant to Crackdown 3 and we’re going way off track again, so I’ll leave it there.
