  1. My brother who has recently got his Series S has been blackmailed into starting the Halo MCC with me. I played it through earlier this year with a view to it being ready for Infinite. I was wrong. No where near ready. But, he played Halo 1 for the first time. We did the first three missions and hes gagging to play more. Awesome.
  2. This is absolutely up there with my favourite games of the generation. Loved dipping back in for the MS Points, but its utterly fantastic and with a 4k60 update, I'd happily start the whole thing again.
  3. Add me to the list of those suffering from party chat issues. My brother, after getting jealous of my Series X managed to get a Series S from EE, which arrived yesterday. After his traditional 'ring me and get tech support' on setting it up, we played a few rounds on Fortnite and he spent the time just saying how good the graphics were. His purchase also coincided with a new 4k telly which was a huge upgrade for him. Proper.
  4. I find the tutorial videos from Chicken Possible help a lot - the Payday one took me 10 minutes, which was enough for me to determine it was a bit shit and not worth my time.
  5. I loaded the game up post 1.1 patch and am still getting the bug on 'Dredged Up'. My assumption is that this is still broken?
  6. I couldnt be more pleased with the Xbox Series X. I'm a realist and I know that the game that really blows me away hasnt come out yet, but the loading times, the speed of processing has made such an infinite difference that its unreal. As I posted elsewhere, I just got a telly that does the 120hz VRR stuff and whilst theres only a few games that takes advantage of it, its lovely enough to know I made the right choice. Equally, I'm an Xbox guy anyway - my whole family have Xbox, my closest pals who game have Xbox so to me, it makes perfect sense. I'm relatively sure I'd be very torn if I wasnt
  7. I bought a new telly this week, (Q95) and the Fortnite 120fps mode is absolutely gorgeous. To add to that, I'm still utterly awful at this game, but have been spending lots of time playing with my brother online and with my 10 year old daughter who is much, much better than I am at it.
  8. Not sure if this is spoilers or not, so tagged anyways...
  9. So, completed this today. I'll go through my thoughts in spoilers, but will summarise and say that the Series X experience only had a few minor bugs which were very bearable. (Bar one which stopped me from completing a final side mission and therefore an achievement). Anyways, spoilers ahoy:
  10. I’m almost 50 hours into this now. Got to the ‘point of no return’ so have just been buzzing around cleaning up any side gigs that come up. it’s glorious. I’m a tad heartbroken it’s had so many buggy issues because frankly it’s the most jaw droppingly immersive game in so long, ive just got the cyberware where I can shoot grenades out of my hand and equally, the double jump one is equally very very useful. Long story short, it’s ace.
  11. If you scan the room and then focus on the cameras it gives you hacking options

    The Division 2

    Huge fan of The Division and The Division 2. Sank so many hours into the games and the DLC. Every time Ubi do a presentation I'm just desperate for them to announce number 3. Just use the blueprint from Watchdogs from London and get on it with I say...
  13. Was on with my daughter who loved it, my brother was also on and went bananas when AC/DC came on :-)
  14. Yep, MTC are pretty good in my view. I've used them for a few years. For new games, you get the code on release, for COD, Watchdogs etc I got the code pretty early in the morning. Just requires a VPN to process, theyll tell you what country you need and Bobs your uncle.
  15. For COD, Watchdogs and Valhalla i ordered the code off of MTC games and got the points :-)
  16. Finally received notification that my SSD has been shipped by UPS arriving tomorrow. Good to know their pre-order process works so well *rolls eyes*
  17. You can only receive 5000 a month once per account. (And send once per account) I have four xboxes in the house, so have a family account set up. So I use one to farm the 5000 a month to send to my main account. Then I end up with a spare account which slowly builds to 12k and an extra month of GPU every now and then...
  18. I’m a hardcore Rewards dude and I’ve netted around 213,000 points so far since the turn of the year, including the 5k transfer from my family account. It’s paid for a large portion of my Series X SSD and whacked a chunk off the cost of my new turtle beaches. I can’t recommend it enough.
  19. Did the website update for you or just arrived randomly?
  20. I know a few mentioned no progress on SSD orders from Microsoft - anyone had any joy in receiving theirs yet? My order stuck on 'pre-order' with no date now. I rang MS to be told 'yes, its pre-ordered'. Gee thanks...
  21. Exactly the same here! EDIT: Have also tried to speak to MS support a few times today without success
  22. Amazon/Hermes just delivered. Yaaaaaay!
  23. The difficulty will be in opening the front door after encasing myself in goo. BUZZING.
  24. I awake to the notification on my Curve card that Amazon have taken the money. HUH HUH. One day more!
  25. Got Tuesday and Wednesday off and I actually have two X's arriving, one S and an SSD. (Me, a friend, my son, me again lol) So, I have a greater chance of getting the Shopto before my Amazon.
