    Xbox One Console Thread

    Under the games > available bit on the left there'll be a Game Pass Ultimate or whatever it's called option. It's got Ultimate in it somewhere. Make sure you've extended Gold as much as you want before setting it up as it won't match any you add after, you can stack up to 36 months of future Gold beforehand I think.

    Download the Xbox Insider app and apply to be in the program. You might need to be in it for a month before getting the offer, whatever it takes to get into the Delta ring basically which I think is the earliest point you'll get the offer - that's when I got it anyway (levels are Omega, Delta, Beta, Alpha see https://support.xbox.com/en-GB/xbox-one/console/xbox-insider-program).

    Steam - UI Overhaul Coming Soon

    I've got to be right at the last bit. There's exposition being spouted and allsorts, except the fucking sound is missing the first second of every sentence so I've no idea what anyone is saying. Even putting subtitles on isn't catching all the audio, Alyx is just miming at me now. Fifteen fucking years I've been playing this and this is what I get - no idea what's happening at the end. It's been fine 'til now (well, I think I fixed some echoing that cropped up around 2010-2012)! Christ. edit: snd_mixahead 0.3, and done. Phew.

    Oh my god I think I've almost finished Half-Life 2!

    Football Thread 2018/19

    I don't agree with this in the slightest; despite the scoreline Watford did make a decent game of it, Man City were just better and finished their chances. In the second half Watford came straight out to give it a go - arguably a bit too soon for that - but it didn't work out and the third really killed them. It looked like the occasion got to Pererya, maybe the early miss was on his mind but there were a few instances after that where he could have done better but seemed indecisive and they really didn't need that. Unfortunately for them it wasn't to be. Either way, some of the play was exhilarating to watch with that move where de Bruyne ended up wildly sidefooting over the bar being one of those where I was willing him to score even though the score didn't matter. It wasn't boring in the way I could find those matches where Barcelona would spend 95% of the match just holding onto the ball and suffocating the other team. Man City just kept attacking, and not in any way that was taking the piss with tricks and flicks, just directly in a manner where every player showed they wanted it and cared about it as if they were men possessed. So not the greatest final, but I can't say I was bored by it and ended up being fairly in awe at the performance Man City put in.

    Xbox Game Pass

    I'm only on Delta but I just noticed while trying to rate some stuff to move up that the Ultimate Game Pass offer was in the list of Insider Content under games anyway. So I've now, presumably, got Gold and Game Pass til December 2021 for a quid as a result of having a Gold sub with that end date before doing this. And a quid a month thereafter (on the vanishingly unlikely chance it's still on that offer in 2 1/2 years time). Mental.

    Team Sonic Racing

    This doesn't seem to be up for preorder on the UK Xbox store yet - when is it out? I've got enough MS rewards points built up to get it assuming it's thirty quid. Not entirely enthralled by the team thing still, but I'm torn between that and not supporting a developer who could be the only hope of ever getting another Outrun game.

    One S? Nah, you're alright.

    Steam - UI Overhaul Coming Soon

    Here's something I never knew; while you can delete an item permanently from your Steam account, it's not actually permanent at all and you can undo the action by finding the game again under support. And if you can't get the game to come up in the search on support (eg, if it has a common name and given it's no longer on your account it doesn't get bumped up the search results), just stick the appid on the end of this link: https://help.steampowered.com/en/wizard/HelpWithGame/?appid=<gameappid> Ideal for deleter's remorse. Or for if you delete an unknown package that Team Fortress 2 was in that turned out to be The Orange Box meaning Half-Life 2 was no longer in your library when you go back to play through a bit more of it, like I did the other day.

  11. That blue one you linked to is the actual Megadrive compatible one rather than the USB one though, which is here: https://smile.amazon.co.uk/Retro-Bit-Official-8-button-Arcade-Control/dp/B07H3Q2CFS
  12. I think midway through the season I was pretty bored with football in general. Couldn't be arsed watching anything any more. Last couple of months though? Fucking hell, there's been some blood pumping stuff!

    Microsoft Rewards

    The latter, it's just money that is deposited into your MS account either way. There is no distinction between the credit bar the name, and it's baffling that there are two listings for what are the same thing.

    I was reading about Bernardo Silva, because he is nice. Then I chanced across this video of him on a chicken shop date (and Jesse Lingard - not at the same time tho that'd be even weirder) I like him even more now.

    Abandoned Games (2019)

    Loco Roco (PSP, on Vita) Lovely, charming, cute. Tedious, boring, deleted. The challenge, if there is any, seems to be going back and doing levels to find all the stuff in them, but given it's pretty much inconsequential and thoroughly unexciting to do so I feel like I'm wasting my time for nothing. And given this pastime literally is about wasting time for nothing, I don't need explicitly reminding of it and would rather have fun doing it. Loco Roco 2 (PSP, on Vita) See above.
