  1. Overcooked free on Epic https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/overcooked/home
  2. Indeed - apparently the next games to be given away by Epic will be Borderlands: Handsome Collection and ARK. They're going all out to promote their sale (which is very decent btw - you get £10 vouchers to use on each purchase £13.99 or higher, so e.g. I got Control + Season pass for £24).
  3. Civ 6 free on Epic https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/sid-meiers-civilization-vi/home
  4. Ubisoft are giving away the educational Discovery Tour modes of their Assassin's Creed games: Ancient Egypt and Ancient Greece. These are really good! There are loads of narrated museum-guide style tours you can go through, with extra photos of historical artifacts etc. If you have school kids around to keep occupied, they make a fun history lesson or two.
  5. Now free on the Epic store: Amnesia: The Dark Descent Crashlands
  6. Second this, a really interesting game with a powerful ending. Another recommendation: Eliza, a visual novel about therapy and the implications of AI. Very well written and acted.

    Xbox Game Pass

    Separate things, you need to pay for each. But both are included (plus Xbox Live Gold) in a GamePass Ultimate subscription. There are various tricks to get an Ultimate subscription for cheap if you pay in advance (iirc it works out as under £4/month, for up to 3 years).
  8. The Walking Dead: Season One is one of the best narrative-based games of the last decade. Hexcells is a really good puzzler, like a cleverer Minesweeper.
  9. Exactly, which is why it was so weird - I was changing all sorts of vsync and other GPU settings trying to find the one that had made it slow down. I might email Dan Marshall to let him know what the workaround is in case anyone else comes across the same thing. Anyway, now that's sorted - great game, enjoying it a lot!
  10. Can I ask, how does this perform for everyone? When I'm platforming, the screen scrolling is really jerky, like about 15fps if I had to guess. It doesn't matter what resolution I'm running it in, and CPU and GPU usage is never more than 40% each, so I don't think it's a lack of power. EDIT: oh never mind, found out what the issue was - I have two screens set up in Windows, with the display duplicated (I only ever have one of the displays on at any time). Changing this setting to explicitly disable the screen I'm not using makes everything a lot smoother. Weird, first game where this has been a problem!

    Half-Life: Alyx

    Maybe Valve have cracked it somehow, but every time I've tried to use that kind of movement in a game it makes me feel very uncomfortable. Roomscale + teleport generally feels the best imho.

    Nintendo Switch

    Huh - that maybe explains what the missus saw on the weekend, someone buying 4 (four) Switches at Tesco, if resale prices are high?
  13. Depending on how attached you are to your Gamertag, there's always the nuclear option of abandoning it and starting a new one to get the 3-years cheap deal. (It's what I did recently, but I never play multiplayer, so don't care about friends lists, and don't have many purchases on my old account.)
  14. I would recommend The Hex, I played it recently and it’s clever and interesting, but go in blind if possible. When RPS reviewed it, they said: “...while The Hex doesn’t quite reach Pony Island’s feeling of a near-perfect package, it’s a far bigger, more complicated, and astoundingly ambitious game.” Eliza and Shenzhen I/O are both excellent as well.
  15. Or is it a handheld / docked difference?
