    Depends. Might not be much in it between them if you can sell the old PS4 for a reasonable amount.

    Xbox E3 Briefing | Sunday June 9th 9pm UK

    Boo. I've got work on the Monday. Hurry the hell up and get it done in an hour. Not sure exactly what I'm after from them, but wouldn't mind a bit of Crackdown 3 DLC.

    Void Bastards and Outer Wilds both look like fun.

    Playdate-A new handheld console thingy

    My main question is whether this at least a recyclable bit of tat that no one really needs or one that’s destined for the landfill.
  5. Kids are going to go mental for this. It’s basically pure evil.
  6. Yeah, stuff like this is not always fun. The Red Faction games, for example, had complete destruction and this was permanent per level. So I made it 80% of the way through a level, blew up a bridge and couldn't complete the level because of it. Likewise, all the "better AI" stuff often boils down to the games not being fun if the AI basically ends up being superhuman, which is what happens if you make it too smart. I remember Bungie's AI designers discussing this years ago.
  7. This generation has seen more developers move away from just pushing graphics than any other. Rage 2 is a recent example of a game that runs at 1080p on the 4K consoles because the devs wanted 60fps performance. Lots more games have 60fps options, and dynamic resolution scaling is becoming standard. I disagree. You just have to look at the third party output on the Switch to see it's not the case. EA are actually paying another studio entirely to make a version of FIFA which runs on the Switch. Likewise, Microsoft had another studio build a completely separate version of Forza Horizon 2 for the Xbox 360.

    Xbox One Console Thread

    I just selected the update in the download list and chose “cancel download.” It even says something which basically means it won’t delete the whole game anyway but the whole system locked up for a second and the game had disappeared from my hard drive. I definitely didn’t choose “uninstall.”

    Xbox One Console Thread

    My Xbox is struggling to download at higher than 5Mbit/s. This is despite the network diagnostic tool saying my down speed is 70Mbit/s. Anyone know how to fix this? I’ve tried the daily restart but no joy. On top of this, I cancelled the update for Just Cause 4 and it deleted the whole bloody game off my HD. What an awful OS they’ve got on these things.

    Just Cause 4 - After Rain Comes Explosions

    Tried to jump on this only to find there’s a 12.2GB update out today. Few big features like redone lighting and more ammo capacity detailed here: https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2019/05/21/5-reasons-just-cause-4-spring-update-more-destruction/

    Just Cause 4 - After Rain Comes Explosions

    Apparently they prioritised performance this time around, so while it’s locked at 30fps, it often drops down to 720p on the base consoles. I’m visiting my brother next week so will download it on his OG Xbone and revel in the 720p grainy glory. I’m still loving it. Far more enjoyable than JC3. The new tether gadgets are so much fun. I find myself using them more than the weapons.

    Outer Wilds

    Was it last year they gave this away free or the year before? Anyway, I’m looking forward to it.

    John Wick 3: Parabellum - May 2019

    ?! He’s brilliant! One of the best things about it. And JW2 has Peter Stormare repeating exactly what Nyqvist said except hammed up ten times as much! This actually sets the tone quite nicely for the rest of the film. You’re getting a low effort retread with no new ideas.
  14. With the caveat that I don’t think any games are entertaining to stream, I know some people like to watch people chill out and talk over a pretty laid back game, in which case this should fit the bill. In many ways it’s so dull (like during the travel between locations) that it feels a bit like watching someone stream it even when you’re playing it.

    The iOS gaming thread

    Has anyone played the Gardens Between? Looks interesting and is very highly rated on the store.
