    Is the Razer Turret pay to win?

    There are adapters that allow the use of M&K on all games, although sometimes not with exactly the same precision as native M&K as they are pretending to be a controller, and those same adapters can run scripts to automatically adjust aim when firing to offset recoil patterns for example, turning guns into lasers.

    Amazon Prime Video

    Yep. Currently a shit-show on Xbox, PS4 and Apple TV. Doesn't happen on my old Sony blu-ray player, but that's running a 2012/13 version of the Prime video app. Watching The Man in the High Castle last night I tried all 4 because it was so obvious. No issues with Netflix so presumably an Amazon thing. I was already annoyed because I can't get PCM surround from Prime Video watching TMITHC on the Apple TV (defaults to DD2.0) which is presumably some incompetence by Amazon or nonsense between them and Apple.
  3. If it's the grip on the outer panel that's come unstuck it's pretty easy to pry that panel off with a plastic tool (it's the first stage of stripping any Xbox One pad down) and then you can easily peel off and re-glue the rubber covering into place. Edit: I should learn to read - easier to get the refund This is a little more work to fix. You'd need to pry both side panels off and remove the 5 Torx screws that secure the faceplate to the chassis. After that you can unclip and remove the silver panel that surrounds the Xbox button, and then replace the broken shoulder button set with a third party replacement. I did this with one of my two duffers. If you decide to give it a go, let me know and I can dig out the link to the Amazon listing from which I purchased the replacement - there are loads of crap ones, but this was pretty decent and finished in matt black so complemented the Elite quite nicely. There are also three revisions of the shoulder buttons, so you need to get the right one! There's a ifixit guide to dismantling the pad that I can look up if it helps.
  4. What percentage of the games used to compile that figure received both a physical and digital release? Edit, includes micro-transactions

    Nintendo Switch

    Yes. The MP is fantastic.
  6. Does anyone know which vbucks are spent first, those purchased or those earned through the battle pass? I received 1,000 vbucks free from MS but they're locked to the Xbox. I have another 700 earned through the battle pass, so the Switch only shows a balance of 700. If I spend 1,000 vbucks through the Xbox, will that be deducted from the balance that is locked to the Xbox, or will the 700 earned through the battle pass be used first?
  7. It depends on your time zone. If you're in the US, then yes as there are noticeably more US players on the Xbox, but matchmaking is regional so if you're in Europe you probably don't want to play against US players with a 120-200+ ping. If you're in Europe, then the answer is "Xbox is a little more populated". The other morning there were (worldwide) 1,450 players on the PS4 and 1,750 on the Xbox at the same time. I can't say that I find the PS4 anything near "mostly dead" - unless you're trying to play something other than Attrition, in which case you'll struggle to find regular matches on either platform.
  8. Most people are playing Attrition now (usual wait time is a couple of seconds to a couple of minutes depending on luck and time of day), so the wait for other modes can be 5+ minutes irrespective of platform. Although the Mixtape matchmaking system allows you to search for multiple game types at once, just set it to the one you want then search. Based on reddit posts, Mixtape really just searches one mode at a time, which these days means significantly extended waits if you queue for more than one mode because there are few people playing anything other than Attrition. In a bid to encourage players to queue for other modes instead of gravitating to the most populous, Respawn removed the regional playlist player counts in a patch about 6 months after release, leaving just a single global figure on the main matchmaking menu. Sadly that's been counterproductive, because you can't see if it's worth trying to play certain modes in a particular region these days, which has meant people really only queue for Attrition.
  9. I've started playing it! Just done Effect and Cause
  10. I mean, you could have Titanfall without the wall running/parkour traversal but it'd basically be Call of Duty, and fuck that. Chaining wall running, sliding, grappling, phasing and shooting is glorious and renders traditional FPS games redundant for me.

    Abzû - Journey Successor

    I disagree (that it was forgettable). I enjoyed Journey but I thought this was beautiful.

    MGS V bargain

    Does the bundle include anything that the PS+ versions of Ground Zeroes and MGS:V didn't include?
  13. Shamefully, I've still not played the campaign, despite owning the game since release on both PS4 and Xbox and having spent almost 3 weeks of my life on the multiplayer. I should probably do something about that.
  14. I've literally never experienced this. Unless you're playing against teams who play it like Call of Duty I don't see how it'd be effective. Anyone who's still playing MP want to team up? I've got it on both PS4 and Xbox
  15. I have over 18 real days in the multiplayer across PS4 and Xbox Eighteen days.
