  1. I suspect some of it is due to things being very down to the wire. Halo Infinite’s launch day release obviously wasn’t workable, and games like Gears 5 and Forza Horizon 4 have only had their Series X/S patches go live in the last week or so.
  2. It’s a convoluted coping mechanism rooted in the fact that the PS5 GPU runs at a higher frequency than the Xbox’s. This doesn’t matter because the latter has more compute units.
  3. 1. Metro Exodus 2. QUBE 2 3. Darksiders 3 4. What Remains of Edith Finch 5. Ori and the Will of the Wisps 6. Doom Eternal 7. Journey to the Savage Planet 8. Dark Souls 3 9. Carrion (Game Pass) 10. Fractured Minds 11. Dark Souls: Remastered 12. Return of the Obra Dinn You can see from the list above, I’ve played some absolute stunners this year. Well, this one is easily up there with the likes of Edith Finch and possibly above the Dark Souls games. It honestly might be the perfect video game. You play an inspector for the East India Shipping Company,
  4. Supraland is wonderful and we need a proper thread to talk about it:
  5. Do you like physics puzzles, secrets and platforming? Then you should play Supraland! It’s out on all formats and is wonderful. It’s also out on Game Pass (Xbox, not PC, unfortunately). I’ve just got the McGuffin from the Crystal Tower and have been incredibly impressed by what I’ve seen so far. I
  6. Agreed. The Series S is essentially for people who don’t care about comparisons to the X and is only going to confuse the messaging. (I’m still super keen to see comparisons, obviously).
  7. The streaming is really nice, though. Missus can watch TV while I play games on the iPad. I don’t even have to connect the Xbox controller to the iPad as it’s connected directly to the Xbox. I suspect there’s less lag this way, too.
  8. It's not content you can use on your phone or via the app, so they can sell it without paying Apple a cut. They have done until now.
  9. Yep. I had a look at the wiki and the two I was struggling with do indeed have (quite obscure) clues which allow you to deduce who they are. I expect there will not be a sequel, but I'd love to see more of this kind of game.
  10. @Calashnikov I remembered it’s also on PS4, but I don’t have one of those, so that doesn’t really help me.
  11. Are they even taking preorders? Saw a morales gif yesterday and suddenly £450 didn’t seem so expensive.
  12. Yeah. I really liked Origins. It has some wonderfully memorable locations and the basic story is simple and it's easy to root for Bayek. Odyssey introduced these stupid faction wars, bringing down nations and too much other nonsense that just made the game feel like a sprawling mess. All the locations look pretty much identical, and the story is a convoluted joke. Alexios, in particular, sounds like what my 3 year old would produce if you told him to be a baddie.
  13. Am o missing something it fits the new Xbox app on iOS only do a fraction of what the old one did? No region settings, no store or ability to buy games or see prices when searching for them. No way to redeem vouchers. What a shame. The app was my preferred way to browse the store.
  14. Finished it now. Anyway, what a game. I think it ran out a bit of puff at the end as there’s a couple of people who you essentially just need to brute force, I think. There’s no way to tell which of a few characters is which, except for trying different combinations, for example. Re: the ending- Still, absolutely brilliant.
  15. Sounds about right. I would say play Origins instead. Better story, far better locations, less pointless busywork and no dull grinding. The world is smaller and wonderfully varied. It also has truly wonderful HDR which they messed up in Odyssey. I remember being in a pyramid and thinking my OLED had turned off because it was pitch black.
