Untitled goose game wasn't a cynical meme thing, it caught on quite organically because it was a good game.

Have you ever heard of these things called opinions? I’ve given my reasons for not liking it and that’s it. You can’t force me to see it any differently.

 

Besides, how could it have caught on because it was a good game, when they gave it that ridiculous name before anyone had even played it? The whole marketing campaign around it was built off the memes and that’s why I’ve always been cynical of skate bird using a wacky conceit to put the game in people’s minds.

 

But anyway, this has gone off topic enough. Maybe I should have said 12 Minutes instead, but that pile of shit tried to hoodwink people with the use of Hollywood actors.

Yes. You are giving yours and people are giving theirs in response. 

 

Goose Game was great, leagues above the likes of Goat Sim and Skatebird. A fun, chilled out Hitman game with a really relaxing vibe. 

Of course it’s fine that people enjoyed it and I’m really not against that in any way. Just as I can imagine some people will like Skate Bird.

 

Maybe I should have said they saw what a daft premise and name did for Goose Game and thought they’d try it themselves, or maybe I should have just used a different example, even though I personally think it fits quite well.

 

Either way, you all know what I was getting at, so berating me for not liking Goose Game is way off topic and I’d rather we leave it there, so I don’t have to keep explaining my obvious point in ever more convoluted ways. It wasn’t really a point that needed stretching this far really.

My gamepass expired and I'm taking a break before I renew it. Is there any way to change my Destiny 2 back to new light? It wont launch at all without telling me to renew gamepass. I tried deleting the expansion packs but would rather not download the full game unless I really have to.

I actually find Bradigor’s reviews to be the most helpful of anyone’s as I know if he likes it I’ll think it’s shit. Don’t mean that to sound aggressive, it’s just genuinely the case with most things. 

Same. Bought a couple of things on their recommendation and quickly realised we're polar opposites when it comes to games.

Their, not his :)

 

And I... actually don't mind Skate Bird? I went in expecting something completely broken — glitchy controls, non-functioning physics or similar — and it's none of the above. I definitely don't rate it as a brilliant example of its genre, and the fact that THPS and Skate are finally getting attention again does render it a lot less relevant, but it's a perfectly acceptable skatearound with a lot of character.

 

(it probably helps that I'm a sucker for miniaturised perspectives in games — they just take me back to that happy place of Dreamcast-era games like ReVolt and Toy Commander)

As I've decided to repurpose an SSD as an external drive for the Series S, and mucking around with games that may/may not run from the drive, I ended up stumbling into Descenders and Crown Trick.

 

Descenders is great - there's a real sense of speed when you're bombing it down the track, general controls are super tight (maybe the trick aspects could be on a better button but an actual solution is beyond my brain power at the moment), and the procedural generation combined with active players just playing the game in the same session just makes it a very lively experience, bit like the multiplayer aspects of No Man's Sky. Except you're definitely riding a bike into a tree in the process. I definitely prefer it to Lonely Mountains Downhill, which is a bit more ruthless but still a decent bike-based jaunt.

 

Crown Trick was.. not what I was expecting, honestly. I saw some PoE/Diablo streamers were playing so I thought it was an ARPG, but it's definitely more in the vein of a traditional dungeon crawler. Not my cup of tea, but it's well presented and seemed mechanically sound.

 

(Unlike Skatebird, which was shiiiiiiiiit ;))

For the record I was just having a quick little giggle with Carlos bye skatebird is a little bit disappointing from why I wanted it to be however I am enjoying it enough that I think it's good for a quick 5-minute pick up and play I'll be talking about it in the podcast hopefully this week if my surgery goes well today but it's a it's just my load games where it's not as all four was a lot of people making out but it's not as great as some of the many of the early expectations were expecting it to be so yeah but it has a cute bird and that bird thinks they're people and does skateboarding that's enough but yeah no it's you know it's average game I would say I spoke about that not on last lot on this most recent podcast but the week before I spoke about average games and I think they're good to have I think I've only sometimes we get a lot of hyperbole when it comes to discussing games if I forgot to be absolutely exceptional or complete and utter dog sites and to be honest I think skateboard falls in the middle somewhere ok that's why I don't score games I refuse to score games because I don't know what I would score it because it is enjoyable to me but not as great as I would have hoped but yeah definitely not as bad as what some people are saying

After sinking 50 hours into Like a Dragon and hitting the highs of level 66 I'm finally done with Yakuza Like a Dragon. It's my first proper attempt at playing a Yakuza title and it really swept me off my feet. So much fun and going to miss wandering around with Ichiban and the party. My next step was straight into Yakuza 0 and though it was short still managed a good 5 hours yesterday afternoon. I wasn't a fan of the combat and do prefer the RPG elements of the other and after a bit of time swinging Kiryu's fists around I had to lower the difficulty a bit :lol: I aiming for a straight run through of the full series so I don't want to be stuck on battles for ages. LAD had a few bottlenecks where I just hit a brick wall in progress and needed hours of levlelling up but not got the patience for too much of that going forward.

 

0 has a broken save system right off the bat. It was a good hour before I realised it hadn't saved and you had to use though phonebooths everytime. Quite the change from the save most places before. You can go 30-45 minutes in some sections without a save option with no auto save so you are in for a tough ride if you forget. Thank god for the X's Quick Resume. It's a much older game and very clunky but being able to see Kamurocho and where Ichiban was born in passing is quite interesting, never played a series of games before that are based around the same place. Hope it doesn't become too repetitive the further I go. Having loads of fun getting into this series and after this I'm probably going to take a break to finally play Red Dead 2 as I'll need a brief break before pushing on. Quite enjoying what I've seen so far and punching my way through a Yakuza base like a badass was all kinds of awesome. God knows what's coming next but I'm in for the long haul. And ALL of this is available for free on GP :o even the spin off Judgement (that might be a Gold game buut I installed it anyway).

Most of the Yakuza games use the phone booth save system, unfortunately - only the newest games (Kiwami 2, 6 and Like a Dragon) have autosave/save anywhere. Like you say, the Quick Resume feature is a godsend.

 

Working your way through the whole series will take you a good long while, make sure you spread it out a bit. They're long games and quite samey so play other stuff in between. You'll also have to get used to the way you will jump backwards and forwards in terms of the age of the games and the technology used, as they've had differing standards of remake, so that'll be less jarring if you space the games out.

 

Zero is absolutely brilliant though, arguably still the best in the series. Enjoy!

They can download and play everything you can, that includes everything on game pass and all the gold games you've claimed.

I've seencomments made of it being a masterpiece in some places. I've been trying to keep away from possible story stuff in case I ruin it, few things I'm sure were past references in LAD so sure it will all make sense soon. I did see a piece saying that the 4th game was the worst and a real slog to get through so I might jump into Judgement after the the 1st Kiwami game to give myself a proper break. Just not enough time in the day to get through them :lol: Was up til 2am yesterday to hit the end of LAD. Crazy.

Opinions vary but 3 and 4 are the bump in the road for most people - they're early PS3 games and are really showing their age. Kiwami 1 is also a bit peculiar as it's a remake of the oldest game in the series (and has carried across a lot of its problems) but then also has a load of stuff shoved in there following up from events in Zero.

 

But they're all good, and all worth playing through for the plot and crazy side-stories!

Thanks. But does the stuff available to them show up as free, if that makes any sense? Like do they have access to Game Pass app or does it just ask them to sign up to Game Pass?

If they are logged in with their own account they will see what they can see in the store (so if they don't have a GP account they will not be able to see stuff for free). If your account was set to auto login (or they log it in via profiles) then they could use your account to browse and download.

Pretty sure they can’t use the phone app as they don’t have Gamepass in their own right but when logged into their account on the Xbox they will see and be able to download all Gamepass games as normal if it is set as the home Xbox for an account with Gamepass (even when that account is not signed in).

 

(this actually also works on a second Xbox providing it is online and the main account is also signed in. Any other accounts on the console can see all the games and download them as long as the Gamepass owning account is also signed in. So my kids can play on both Xbox’s at the same time playing Gamepass games (although I couldn’t log in and play anything on a third Xbox, but interestingly I can play PC Gamepass games when they are both on).
