  1. Assassin's Creed Origins

    I’m gonna persevere for a bit after hearing so many of you say you were turned around.
  2. It’s the little moments of sheer triumph in this game that make it so good. A tweet what I just done from the train after dying 50 times on this bit. I was determined to do it in one go. Nearly managed it...
  3. Assassin's Creed Origins

    Thanks. I think that seals my thoughts and will pop it in the trading folder shortly. I totally get what people love them but to sink even 30 hours, let alone 100 (to get the most out of it) into a game where even the story isn’t doing it for me is just not an option for me any more. Ta.
  4. Assassin's Creed Origins

    So played through Ass 1 and a wee bit of Ass 2. Then about a quarter of Black Flag. Played the first 3 hours of Origins yesterday. It’s beautiful on a 4K TV with an X but it left me cold. I wanted to try it to see if was still interested in playing the big solo 30 hour adventure thing but I think I’m out. I think it’s partly because I’m time limited and maybe a lot of the fun is exploring the open world but the time thing means that I want to mainline the game only and there is a grind element that doesn’t want me to do that. Also. I didn’t follow the plot for the first 3 hours at all. Just didn’t grab me and it seemed muddled. For someone who isn’t a completist does the quality of the game warrant turning it down to Easy and getting through it or should I cut my losses now and trade in?
  5. Xbox One Console Thread

    Not really anything you’ve forgotten there I don’t think. If you’ve discounted all the exclusives, you don’t care about the X enhancements that much and all you have more MP friends on PlayStation then those are the big 3. I like it because it is more powerful when it comes to 4K, I don’t have many friends I play with a lot on either eco system and I’m looking forward to SOT immensely. The only other thing to consider is the game subscription services. Gamepass and EA Access are good services that will suit a lot of people who don’t like going out and dropping £50 on the latest games. MS are specifically going to be pushing the hell out of Gamepass in the next 6 months as a way to revolutionise the industry when it comes to new AAA first party releases. That’s something that I’m quite excited about. Though, if as you say none of the big 3 this year interest you (SOT, Crackdown 3 and State of Decay) then I can’t see it being a draw.
  6. Nintendo Switch

    Is FIFA 18 on the switch decent? Does it play a decent game? I totally ignored it.
  7. PlayStation 4 Console Thread

    @K I bought Late Shift in the Xbox sale. I saw it and thought ‘what the hell is this?’ and upon reading that it’s an interactive movie game I had to buy it. Not played it but when I read up on it they seemed to say it was an interesting enough return to a dead genre. Mainly because the budget seemed pretty lavish and it’s pretty well produced. How long does a play through take?
  8. Bayonetta 1 & 2 - Nintendo's Witch

    Having just got a 4K TV I’m not sure whether to go for these on Switch or wait for them to come out in remastered versions or play them on PC. I even have the first one on 360 as part of Gamepass so it wouldn’t cost me anything. Still tempted to go for switch double pack though. Does it look decent docked in 1080p?
  9. Nintendo Switch eShop

    Gunbarich is fun in a crazy Japanese type way. Music and atmosphere is great. I’m playing with an arcade stick which feels great but not sure how it plays on controller.
  10. Monster Hunter: World

    Ha ha. Exclusive. There are 4 of us now (and more lurking I’m sure!) and we will try and get a few sessions this week.
  11. Monster Hunter: World

    Any Xboxers (In the tiny Rllmuk Smashers quad or not) want to help me smash some Diablos tonight as part of the limited bounty?
  12. Xbox One Console Thread

    I managed to get Assasins Creed to install eventually after half a dozen reboots and installing Doom first. Doom itself failed quite a few times till it worked overnight. After that Assasins Creed worked. It’s deffo not the discs in my case and the internet is awash with the problem. Very odd. To cap it off my X then got itself in a failed console error with the options to reset forcing into a constant reboot loop with nothing working to fix it. So it went back to the shop and I now have a replacement. So far that one seems to be fine. After numerous 360 RROD errors back in the day and the crashy slow installing mess of my launch one machine MS are not filling me with confidence. But I’ll see how this one goes as aspart from that I am hugely impressed with the X as a premium bit of console hardware and games look utterly amazing on it.
  13. System Shock remake

    So basically they said that all our investors gave us the money to make a specific game to a set of specifications we defined in the pitch. We then decided to change that game and thr tools that we were going to use because it felt right for us to do so. Because of these decisions we ran out of money and the whole thing is at risk. Sound to me like some very poor management decisions were made and that they let their hearts rule their heads. It might still get made but the fact that at the very least it’s going to be massively delayed means they’ve really shafted those who have backed them with passion.
  14. Xbox One Console Thread

    I have just had something like this happen to me with my X. Assasins Creed Origins just stops at a random point during the install. If you do a resin all in the queue menu it spins up, does a few more meg then stops again. Are those the same symptoms?
  15. Monster Hunter: World

    Actually looks like this didn’t work. Give me your gamertag and I’ll add you up tomorrow eve.
