  1. In the same vein I imagine the Japanese equivalent of all the "mad sick bare tings in my socks oh my days" would better super entertaining.
  2. I would love this. I realised though a huge huge part of what I am enjoying so much about FH4 was the setting in the UK. The familiarity of the UK country / village areas and Edinburgh is lovely and reminds me of a UK road trip holiday I had years ago. On the other hand the thought of Australia (that's Fh3, right?) just didn't appeal. Japan is lovely though so would interest me, especially having finally visited there in 2018. But the location would really make or break the excitement for me. More than next gen graphics or whatever else.
  3. No you are 100% right on the branding. It feels like they are old man real ale CAMRA type stuff. Perhaps they are - I feel like I had Thornbridge cask before I had keg and very good it was too. But they still make a good core range of craft beers. I actually think they're not so good on those seasonal short run wacky cans that you get from Siren, Cloudwater etc. They're just not exciting in a wanky bottle shop. They're just really good VFM on stocking up on a bunch of session beers. They're miles better than Punk IPA, or Gamma Ray, Neck Oil, Camden Pale ale etc is all
  4. As above. Thornbridge zero five is one of the best. We've been trying a load of them. Leffe is actually nice but probably because they just add syrup or something to get that Belgian taste so it's a little sweet but there's more body to it than non alcoholic beers normally have. Try Nirvana brewery if you haven't, they only do low alcohol beers and the couple I've tried have been tasty. I find the Brewdog ones to just be bitterness rather than flavour. Free dam and the erdinger non alcoholic are quite drinkable too. Would like to
  5. On day 1 / 2 I was getting some problems with QR - to the point I had assumed it was specifically disabled for Forza Horizon 4. Then it was pointed out it wasn't - for what it's worth, ever since I stopped turning the console off in game but going to home, then turning it off, QR seemed to be a lot more reliable and to work as expected. I haven't tested that though. If nothing else I think games should perhaps think about not showing 18 dev logos and a long animated intro menu in any game that a user has played before and should just go "hmm, they've already been play
  6. It's not a big deal. It's something that might spoil us though. Like, I don't know... We get annoyed if a film buffers a little when streaming at 4k because that's the step up from 1080p which is dark ages resolution. Forget that it'd take 40 mins to download a 240p avi back in the day... Basically QR for many games is just a convenience of not having to skip through developer logos, the main menu and then finding your save game and then getting to play. But with loading times I've found for the games I'm playing, quick resume is saving me about 20 seconds.
  7. I do like Thornbridge. They have some of the best "core range" beers along with Siren I think. Too hard to rank craft breweries generally as it's all down to what random crazy fun they haven, but when you just want to stock up on a good few cans. Green Mountain is nice enough normally! Incidentally, Thornbridge's low alcohol beer, zero five, is probably one of the nicest non alcoholic /. 05% beers we've tried. We've been through quite a lot lately because we've been on diets, low alcohol beers are good for midweek too. A lot though are still a bit calorifi
  8. Which app do you download for this? I haven't tried to set it up yet but it feels like it should be more obvious. I mean, Microsoft...this is a really sorry state of affairs. Sort yourselves out.
  9. After getting a Series X, the Switch has gotten no love. But it's very likely my wife and I will be spending Christmas at my mother in law's and it would not be seen as reasonable to take and hook up an xbox... so I'm using Christmas as a reason to give my Switch some attention again... Namely a good session on this game. I can't wait! Sounds like just the thing to get sucked up into.
  10. Is there an app or a preferred way of testing these different headphones options? I did a trial of the dolby thing and it sounds good but it's hard to figure out if it's better. I just wonder if there's a tech demo out there or if people just go into Halo and spin around on the spot or something.
  11. Honestly this is a good idea. This would be a huge huge benefit for something like Star Wars Squadrons. I think this idea that a HOTAS is really necessary for flight games (Elite, Star wars, Flight sim etc) would be negated a fair bit by having this extra axis available. Add a throttle slider like this thing (which I had and I believe I actually played X-Wing Alliance with) and you're golden. I actually think the throttle thing was really quite ergonomic, pads will have plenty of space for them, I think they could have a lot more use in many games.
  12. @ScouserInExile - I'm playing with a Series X controller and it's fine for me. I did find it a little difficult at first and couldn't go more than five minutes without trying a different setup, but eventually I just stuck with the default control system (I might have gone southpaw actually - roll and throttle is on the right stick) and it started to click and I began to really really enjoy the game. The only thing I'm finding a little difficult is switching shields forward and back, and rebalancing power just isn't as ergonomic as I'd like considering how often you need to keep swi
  13. For what it's worth I'm playing 2 on normal and that's fine. I'm ploughing through and it's taken a couple of sessions to get just over half way through. The reason being is there's a lot of Halo for me to get through and I don't want to slow myself down, but as I near the latter games I might go harder. But to be honest it's still a fair enough challenge to be interesting. If you go in guns blazing thinking you're immortal you'll end up dying very very quickly, so just enough covering, waiting for shields. I think it's set right for me. If you have nothin
  14. I ended up giving Halo 2 a go. It has aged well. I think I'll keep going with it and sack off Gears 5 because I just don't like it. I am excited about ploughing my way through all the games in the Halo series such that I am glad the new one is delayed...gives me time to catch up!
  15. Yeah I also am wondering what to invest time in. Gears 5 hasn't clicked with me. I find the duck and cover mechanic to be a little at odds with the heavy metal waves of gore monsters and I'm not mad on the third person view or controls. I say this because as soon as I gave Halo 5, later Destiny 2 a go suddenly I realised how much more natural it was. I'm wondering then whether to deep dive into the entire series and start with Halo 2 as I think I never completed it. I only really tried gears as it felt like the most next gen. Despite being in absolute awe
