    PS+ December: Soma, Onrush, Iconoclasts

    Looks like it was patched on to the PS4 earlier this year: https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-02-19-sea-horror-somas-no-death-safe-mode-is-now-available-on-ps4

    Marble it up was made by some of the people who made Marble Blast Ultra for the 360. This RockPaperShotgun article covers the games background and has a link for playing Marble Blast Ultra on the PC: https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2018/11/16/marble-it-up-pc-version-out-now/

    Let's talk about Loot Boxes

    Also the main issue with loot boxes isn’t really to do with the use of rng in games but with the monetisation of these systems. Especially within games where these ‘rewards’ give players a marked advantage over other players in multiplayer.

    Let's talk about Loot Boxes

    You can’t spend real money to buy wheel spins in Forza Horizon 4, they removed that mechanic for that game. Likewise Prize Crates have been removed from Forza 7 after complaints about the system.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    One of the Barn Finds is tied to a property as well and won’t appear until it’s bought. I think it’s the castle by the Sand Dunes.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    If you buy the PC version won’t that give you a digital Xbox version as well? I’d have thought that you could run the digital version on your Xbox with your old save that should then sync everything.

    Off the top of my head I think you are at the following bit:

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    The remaining races in your championship should appear as big white shield markers rather than the big red shields for starting championships. It doesn’t explicitly tell you this after a race though. I haven’t tried asking ANNA to set a marker to the next race which it might also do.

    General chatter - discuss anything here

    Thanks for finding the copy at Spirit Games, as it happens one of the ‘Lite’ pledge levels became available on the Kickstarter so I decided to take the plunge on that.

    General chatter - discuss anything here

    Thanks @Lochenvar that’s sounds just like what I’m looking for then. I was thinking of backing the Kickstarter, it seems like it’s quite hard to find the first two games anywhere for a reasonable price.

    General chatter - discuss anything here

    Has anyone played Dale of Merchants before? I’ve been looking for a light-ish drafting game to try with my girlfriend and this looks like it might hit the spot from the reviews I’ve seen but always good to get further feedback from people who have played it.

    Antstream - It's Netflix for Games!

    I got to try this out at PlayExpo and I was impressed by the demo. Me and my friends got to try a couple of games out for both a full version and the challenges. We all had a go, it got a little competitive, and none of us felt any discernible lag while playing. Personally, I really liked the challenges and I can see them being a great implementation, especially with the leaderboards. The only ones I saw were for points, which is fine but it would be interesting to know if there will be other challenges such as time trials.

    Yoku's Island Express

    Definitely picking this up, I just can’t decide whether to get it digitally or wait for the physical version.

    Xbox One Console Thread

    You can also buy single pieces of downloadable content that you own from a season pass. For example, I bought the big Telltale pack and I could potentially still buy the episodes separately.
  17. Rumours are that there maybe a Battle Royale type mode added in place of the campaign. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/kotaku.com/sources-next-call-of-duty-wont-have-a-solo-campaign-m-1825338768/amp

    The Witness

    Is that a rhetorical question or do you want an answer on how that is the solution? The other panels on the learning boards are usually pretty good at teaching you what the rules are.

    Forza Horizon 3

    Interestingly for Blizzard Mountain and Hot Wheels each race has stars and medals attached to them and winning is a condition of getting them all. I’m not sure if you can still unlock everything without winning but it’s definitely more noticeable. Wonder if this will carry over to FH4. For me FH3 has been the right mix of things, if I want to race I can get straight to it, if I want to just drive and explore or try throwing myself off danger signs then I can do that as well. Once I had finished the main championship in FH2 I was done but I keep coming back to 3. The Forzathons definitely help with this and I try to do a different race for each challenge to get all the routes done.

    Let's talk about Loot Boxes

    Chris Lee the Hawaiian representative has been questioning the ESA about loot boxes in a televised session. They don’t have much to say but it is interesting how unprepared they are. The video is below, the questioning starts at around 4.20.

    Forza Horizon 3

    I wouldn’t mind them so much if there was an option to turn off the traffic. It’s more than a bit annoying to have a run cut short because there are three cars racing each other coming at you on a narrow road. At at least they are optional events.

    Forza Horizon 3

    Unlocking all the fast travel boards definitely helps with cutting down on the non-racing when you want to. Being able to fast travel everywhere for free is a huge boon. Especially when Championships are very spread out or you just want to change car quickly.

    Your dream game

    The Bit-trip runner series is a bit like this, especially Runner 2 with the music getting more intense as you collect more pick ups. Not quite what you've described but possibly worth a look if you haven't already.

    Football Manager - FM19 release date Nov 2nd

    You can add me to the list of people who have bought FM18 due to the stories and reports in this thread. Haven't had time to install it and get set up yet but looking forward to it as it will be my first one in a long time.

    Danganronpa v3 Demo - where is it?

    Having just looked for it on Google it looks like it might only be on the US PSN store. I found a link but when it tried to change to the EU store on loading, it couldn't find anything.
