MKX is on Game Pass. Really great fun if you have never picked it up.
Not played an MK game in years and will be giving this a bloody good go (gore-based fully intended)!

Re: Microsoft Xbox news and discussion thread

I played quite a bit of Strange Brigade as it goes, it’s ok, good fun with a group of you. I picked it up when it came out a few months back. Played enough to finish it, which by the time I’d got to that point, was fairly glad to see the end of it. It’s a nifty little team shooter. Great - thanks f...

Re: Microsoft Xbox news and discussion thread

I’m also planning on checking out Strange Brigade, the recent Rebellion game that got decent reviews but obviously not much sales traction. Game Pass seems to be becoming a bit of a haven for stuff like this that doesn’t set the charts alight for whatever reason, which I’m all for as it gives me a c...

Re: Microsoft Xbox news and discussion thread

Is there any way to tell your xbox one to download updates in stand by mode? Yes, there is. I’m fairly certain it’s under ‘Power’ in settings. You can choose options on how it powers down, what it does asleep etc... Yes definitely do this! All my games and the system itself just update in the backg...

Re: Videogame News

I think it’s a shame it had to move on from its Nottingham site (cause that’s my old home town) but when I visited it there it was pretty clear the location meant it wasn’t getting much casual footfall, and the space was quite twisty and maze like (old building, lots of support walls). I did wonder...

Planning a visit next year. Also Arcade Club in Bury!
I've heard Arcade Club is very good! Just a shame it's in Bury as it's not very easy to get to unless you live Manchester way. Will have to make the pilgrimage one day :roll:

Re: Videogame News

Awesome news for me specifically - the National Videogame Museum has just opened in Sheffield, my adopted home city! https://www.thenvm.org/ Not managed to get over there yet as it only opened on Saturday, but apparently it's packed with games including lots of arcade cabs. Only a tenner to get in w...

Re: Videogame Deals

I didn't make any big Black Friday purchases this year, but I did get three gaming bargains - God Of War (£19.99), Detroit Become Human (£13.99), & Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection (£14.99).

Under £50 for all that ain't bad I thought!

Have never played a Civ game as they always looked a bit intimidating, but a well thought out and streamlined Switch version sounds seriously interesting to me!

Streets of Rage 4 announced! https://gematsu.com/2018/08/streets-of-rage-4-announced Not convinced, and sounds like I'm in the minority about the art style - doesn't look like Streets Of Rage to me. Should have been really high quality pixel art with lovely animation. Or maybe I'm just being grumpy...

Re: Cyberpunk 2077

This just looks incredible. I'm now officially more excited for this game than any other, apart from perhaps Shenmue 3, and my excitement for that is tempered by the fear it could be terrible, so Cyberpunk maybe takes it! https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-08-28-cyberpunk-2077-finally-shows-e3-...
