  1. Pretty sure I remember it getting quite a slating on the performance side of things pre release / early days but that some early patches made some pretty big improvements. Not too sure as to how it ended up so you might want to have a bit more of a read up on it before taking the plunge. Edit: just took a quick look for my own curiosity and sadly it doesn’t sound great:
  2. Nice one, I did wonder if perhaps someone had just cocked it up .
  3. Treasure is up on the dash today . Also in what is a first (as far as I can remember, and it could well be a mistake) one of the weekly “play” quests that’s gone up today is The Artful Escape. As good a game as it is, it left Game Pass a few weeks ago and I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m not gonna splash £16 on it for 25 points .
  4. @Sixkiller There’s deffo something going wrong there. I’ve got one on (in?) my Series X and it’s always seen it regardless of which power mode the X is set to.
  5. I’d never heard of it but I just watched about a minute of its trailer (sold on it by then and didn’t want to see any more!) and it looks / sounds great!!
  6. Thanks for that, I did see that there was apparently some lag issue on the Switch version though some said they found it just fine. I did also when digging around this morning see that there's a Switch demo so I've downloaded that to see if I feel it's OK though in truth I suppose that doesn't really guarantee anything either way on the Xbox version. I'll try the switch demo later tonight and see how I get on / if I notice it at all but the more I think about it, the more I think I'm best just heading up into the loft and dusting off / setting up my J Saturn and the copy that I've got for that .
  7. That's great news!! Fuga has been on my want list for some time, and I really enjoyed Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion with it (for me) being rather funny .
  8. Am I the only one that didn't know that Ni No Kuni was coming to Game Pass......today?
  9. Not a bad sale (IMO) this week on the BC side of things, there's also a pretty decent Tokyo Game Show sale, which includes such delights that are on my "grab em when on sale" list as Layer Section and Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection, not to mention Mr Driller DrillLand which is less than £5.00 . Battlefield Bad Company 2 £2.99 Blue Dragon £3.74 Borderlands £5.99 Borderlands 2 £7.99 Call of Duty 2 £7.49 Call of Duty 3 £7.49 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare £9.99 Call of Duty: Black Ops £12.49 Call of Duty: Black Ops II £11.99 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2009) £12.49 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 £12.49 Call of Duty: World at War £9.99 Castlevania: Harmony of Despair £3.29 Castlevania: Symphony of the Night £2.22 Contra £1.69 Crazy Taxi £1.68 Duke Nukem Forever £3.99 Fable Anniversary £7.49 Fable II £7.49 Fable III £7.49 Far Cry Instincts Predator £3.59 Frogger £1.69 Frogger 2 £1.68 Guardian Heroes £1.69 Gunstar Heroes £1.69 GUNVALKYRIE £4.19 Hard Corps: Uprising £3.29 JUJU £2.99 LEGO Batman £5.99 LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes £6.74 Lost Odyssey £13.39 Lost Planet 2 £2.99 Lost Planet 3 £2.99 Mafia II £6.24 Midway Arcade Origins £3.74 Prey £2.99 Realms of Ancient War £1.19 Rayman 3 HD £3.37 Rocket Knight £3.29 SEGA Vintage Collection: Golden Axe £1.68 SEGA Vintage Collection: Streets of Rage £3.37 Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution £4.99 Sid Meier's Pirates! £2.29 Spec Ops: The Line £3.99 Super Contra £1.69 SEGA Vintage Collection: ToeJam & Earl £3.37 The Bureau: XCOM Declassified £2.24 The Darkness £2.99 The Darkness II £4.99 The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings £3.74 Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell £4.79 Trials HD £2.02 The Misadventures of P.B.

  10. Sorry, I'd seen someone mention an LG C7 and had kind of got you down as having one !! Anyway I'd be very surprised if it didn't support VRR as it's got the full ultra high speed bandwidth (48Gbps) so it should be fine. That said if you want to perhaps be sure (by way of the manufacturer saying that it will) then you could go for this one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/CSL-Highspeed-Ethernet-Dynamic-Variable-Black/dp/B09GKCDRNR/ref=psdc_1338420031_t5_B08BRYJWSM?th=1 .
  11. This will do the job just fine (there is a 1.8m one but it's actually more expensive) for less than a pint and a pork pie, facilitating all the features your TV / Series X combo can offer to one another and being suitable for the latest TVs HDMI / your Series Xs features (I think you're only missing VRR TBH) should you upgrade. https://www.amazon.co.uk/AmazonBasics-High-Speed-HDMI-Cable-Black/dp/B08BRYJWSM/ref=sr_1_3?crid=3CGAV1VBU3BGI&keywords=amazon%2Bhdmi%2B2.1&qid=1662629387&sprefix=amazon%2Bhdmi%2B2.1%2Caps%2C70&sr=8-3&th=1 Personally I'd encourage people not to buy from the likes of Currys when it comes to connects, as they've been spanking customers for years with all kinds of crazy claims of superior quality, picture and sound enhancing capabilities etc on their snake oil cables. They make a killing on them by tagging them onto TV sales as whats another £30-£150 when you've just spent a grand on your lovely new telly? Well I'd argue that for 99% of people that do buy them its probably around £20-£140 more than they needed to spend.
  12. Thanks for sharing your detailed thoughts on the extra content (oh I had no idea that 3 was going to be a thing!) . I did also find this guide to 2 and the amount of info on it has kind of fried my mind somewhat: https://rtype.fandom.com/wiki/R-Type_Final_2#Description
  13. Ripped from Reddit here's a list of various coastline lengths for this weeks This or That. I tell you what, there are a good few places where on a nice weekend you'd likely struggle to get a decent spot on the beach!! List ordered in Alphabetical order A,B,C. Albania --- 476 km Belgium --- 69 km Bosnia and Herzegovina --- 20 km Brunei --- 160 km Cambodia --- 440 km Comoros --- 340 km Djibouti --- 314 km El Salvador --- 307 km Ghana --- 537 km Guatemala --- 330 km Guinea --- 320 km Guinea-Bissau --- 350 km Guyana --- 459 km Iraq --- 58 km Ivory Coast --- 515 km Kuwait --- 499 km Latvia --- 531 km Liberia --- 680 km Nauru --- 30 km Puerto Rico --- 501 km Sierra Leone --- 483 km Singapore --- 193 km Suriname --- 386 km Togo --- 56 km Tonga --- 419 km Tuvalu --- 24 km .
  14. A big fan of R-Type since it's arcade days I keep dipping in and out of this thread, it's great (IMO) to see such a classic being reinvented and positively chatted about . I've been sat on the fence for a while as the reviews were good but not great but that said I'm sure my love for the game will elevate it for a bit for me if that makes sense and I can't help but think it'll look amazing on an OLED! If I take the plunge and go all in buying the Digital Deluxe version (not cheap, but probably still less than I paid for the two PCE cards all those years ago!) which comes with a season pass that gives me DLC packs 1, 2 and 3, will that give me all current and future content or am I better just getting the base game and a select pack or two and if so are there any recommendations on which to go for / avoid?
  15. That was pretty much what I thought too! I had no idea it was coming to console so this is great news . Ghost Song and Moon Scars are two games that I knew nothing about and I’m really liking the look of them as well!
