    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    One thing it does, that earlier Assassin's Creed games desperately needed, is give you lots and lots of targets. If you want to perfect your assassin-ing in large forts, caves or camps, you have lots of opportunities to try out different styles. Whereas older games would pay lip service to the idea, then drop you out to a cut scene.
  2. Liked it, but then Chazelle doing a movie about Gemini and Apollo was always going to appeal. Little sad that we didn’t manage to sort our calendars out to see it at the BFI IMAX. perhaps a little long, though I’m not sure what I’d cut. wife also nodded off briefly on the moon. I wonder whether it was just the sudden silence.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    Deleted drivel, wrong thread.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    It also gives you the opportunity to change your skill set at any point in order to let you change your play style when it starts to pall. I’m basically warrior and assassin with only three points in hunter. (level 19, probably 25 hours, keep getting distracted and suspect I could be a lot further through the story if I was being more focused)

    Xbox One Console Thread

    No, because there’s additional processing and games modes don’t support it. An additional limitation on my relatively old B6 was that I could play 4k60 in HDR10 mode using my PC, but only 1080p60 or 4k30 in Dolby Vision mode (using mass effect andromeda). Colours/colour balance was far better on the latter, but the drop in frame rate or resolution was pretty disappointing and visible. Never worked out whether the problem was: - inherent in the support on the tv - inherent in the support from the game - inherent in the support from the drivers - something to do with 4:2:0, 4:2:2, 4:4:4 being needed for Dolby Vision, and some other issue in the chain - windows having fucked HDR support, this being about this point last year. - all of the above.

    Flight of the Conchords Appreciation Thread

    I saw them twice this year and there was a tendency to mumble or lose their voices in the mix. The two songs I’ve seen from the special (gender reversal and father/son) were much clearer, but then I’m familiar with them now.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    Decided to attack loads of ships last night, which I’m pretty rubbish at. Splitting individual ships off from a pack seems more difficult than I expected.

    Marvel's Iron Fist (Netflix)

    I’d agree it was the best of the season 2s. The others were all disappointing in their own way.

    Cricket Thread

    A drinks break, two overs from the point where the match might have a result, with rain imminent. Ridiculous.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    Floral tank top, leopard print shirt, autumn trilbey, yellow wellies, tight silver leggings: that’s the look. Can only swap out part of the ensemble if it’s more garish, but I’d be more interested in garish colours than additional cars - I have lots of cars.

    PlayStation 5

    Yes. And clearly “use the disk, get a digital copy, trade the disk in” is just asking for rampant piracy.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    It is. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transport_(typeface) Hadn’t realised that it’s also the font at https://www.gov.uk/.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    I upgraded to ultimate, which is an interesting choice if I ever stop paying for game pass: but then I won’t be playing this next July anyway. i just had everything download. No complications.
  14. Be interested to know how long the demo is, and whether they include enough of it to get past “platformer in VR” and into the more novel stuff.

    PlayStation 5

    The PS3 was partially backwards compatible in software with the PS2, and only after they scrapped the HW backwards compatibility.
