Re: Games Completed 2021

Yeah, MP3 really was one of the best examples of 'just get through the first couple of hours and it goes amazing' I think. Looking forward to replaying it some time now it's been made BC on Xbox.

Re: What's Out This Week?

Yeah just read the IGN review and they weren't overly keen on it. I played the first two on PC pretty much when they came out and enjoyed them enough at the time. Might give this a go since it's on Gamepass.

Re: What's Out This Week?

Serious Sam 4 comes out on Xbox and PS this week too, and is Gamepass on day one. Think this is the one that was Stadia exclusive, wasn't it?

Re: Forza Horizon 5

FYI, they seem to have fixed the Horizon Arcade issue in the patch over the weekend, in that they now scale to how many players are taking part. I managed to clear one totally on my own last night fairly easily. The requirements for passing were waaaaay lower than previously. I've not read any patch...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Hmm, I guess I'll try to blast through the series then - might just stick 4 and 5 on the easiest difficulty to get them done quicker. Thanks for such a detailed answer!

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Everyone else has gone out so I've been playing the first Halo game, inspired by the recent Back Page podcast episode. When I first got my Series S I intended to make my way through the Halo series, having never really got stuck in to it before (played 1 and 3 and about half of 2) so downloaded the ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Yeah I honestly couldn't tell what they'd done with the aiming and shooting. Didn't seem modernised or improved in any way whatsoever to me.

Re: Mobile phone gaming

The first Monster Hunter Stories is on mobile and you can play the first 5-10 hours free to try it out. Really charming little world and characters, although it has a different aesthetic to the sequel. More chibi! I actually bought that for a couple of quid months back and never tried it yet - than...

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Definitive Edition - sit down, this may take a while. Yeah... I mean, I'm bitterly disappointed with the package and having tried both GTA 3 and San Andreas from it, I can't help feeling that actually, technical issues aside, the games don't hold up particularly well. ...

Yeah, looking at my stats I've tried it 10 times and successfully completed it twice (and I'm not sure that is counting the few times I've started and just abandoned it when it became obvious hardly anyone else was joining in). Only do it when it's a seasonal objective, though. I've seen a lot on Re...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Does an icon come up on the map for Jack to follow? I can't remember now. I remember going to get my revenge but can't remember whether it was because I had heard from mates that's what you were supposed to do or whether it was because an icon came up on the map. That moment had been spoilt for me ...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Started watching that Beatles doc on Disney Plus, Get Back. Fascinating to see them rehearsing and trying to come up with song ideas. As someone who's been in bands for the best part of 30 years, that tension between them when trying to write songs was so relatable. The niggling nit-picking and shor...

Re: Forza Horizon 5

I made another course this evening, featuring my favorite part of the world to drive on - up and down the volcano. I'd recommend a rally type car, but it's open so anything can enter. I just test drove it and had fun, hope anyone who plays it enjoys it!

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Forza Horizon 5 Oh. I don't like this much at all... What's with all the silly, GTA-style cutscenes and constant irritating voiceovers? Why is there a player character avatar? Isn't this a driving game? Where is the motivation to progress if I am given top-tier supercars to drive right out of the g...
