    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    Have to agree with Ketchups point about the music being too loud compared to the voice overs. I could barely make out a word of what was said in the introduction to the Terra Nova bosses. I'm enjoying the game though. Being a low level character takes some getting used to. My last experience of Crackdown was with a near maxed out agent so going back to bunny hops and weak grenades is strange, enemies being a threat feels weird. I do like feeling the difference leveling up makes, especially unlocking moves. That air-dash move when you click in the left stick is great, whoever came up with that deserves an entire pack of chocolate hob-nobs.

    Football Thread 2018/19

    I think this news from earlier in the week shows the level of expertise in the FAI. Bunch of cowboys.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    I wonder how much of that divide is down to reviewers treating it as a $60 game and people on here treating it as part of the gamepass subscription. The Verges review calling it The Netflix Original of videogames seems a good description.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    I think I eventually got over 490 agility orbs in the original so there's plainly some corner of the map where there's a handful of orbs just waiting for me. I keep meaning to dig out my 360 and upload the save just so I can give it another run through to see if I can finally reach 500. I got all the agility orbs in Crackdown 2 but it was significantly easier in that game.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    This quote from the Polygon review is a real bugbear of mine. This constant pressure for bigger and bigger environments is something I hate seeing. Over the years I've come to appreciate just how little wasted space there is in GTA3. Surely the quality of the playground should matter more than the size of it? Putting 17 gajillion miles between the monkey bars and the swings doesn't make either of them more fun to use.

    Sorry for doing the grammar Nazi thing but when you are talking about Captain Toad then Charming is spelled with a capital c.

    Nintendo Direct - 13.02 10PM GMT

    They showed multiple new titles/expansions that I'll probably end up buying so that qualifies as a good direct by my own arbitrary measure. More Captain Toad though. Hopefully they'll add the 3D World levels back in to the Switch version so it can be the definitive version of that game.

    Xbox One Console Thread

    Most notable thing was how often Spencer referenced the PC and needing to do better there. I know Nadella has mentioned bringing Gamepass to the PC but it does seem like MS are going to try and push the Windows 10 store much harder. There doesn't seem to be much in the next Windows Update focused on gaming but maybe once that ships and the Autumn update starts coming together we'll see just what their PC plans involve. Based on what I've read in the past it doesn't seem like the Store was built in a way that was very game friendly, hence the lack of support for stuff like the GeForce Experience at launch, but it seems like the Xbox team is getting more involved with that aspect of Windows 10 going forward.
  10. I'm not sure but the last Call of Duty listed on either companies site was Advanced Warfare which came out in 2014. Either way theres a lot of people at those studios facing uncertain futures and I hope their potential plight gets highlighted. Does that not leave them tied into Battle.net for the PC version? I don't think Tim Sweeney and Mark Rein are congratulating Bungie just out of the goodness of their hearts.
  11. I can understand why the likes of Schreier are including how the Bungie staff reacted to this news but I hope we see more coverage of what the feeling is like among the staff at High Moon and Vicarious Visions. Those poor sods look like they are in an awful spot right now. Will they go with Bungie, will Activision reassign them to supporting something like Call of Duty or is it just waiting for the axe to fall? Happy New Year everybody.
  12. How big is that segment of the market? More importantly, how valuable is that segment of the market to publishers? I'm not saying the end of physical media is great or even good for customers, I just think that the big players want a digital only future. If they don't kill it off at the launch of the PS5 and next Xbox then they'll have to wait another 5+ years for another chance. They won't wait that long.

    Nvidia Shield GeForce Now

    Its £190 for the console and controller bundle on Amazon right now but its been on sale for £130 for stuff like Prime Day and Cyber Monday. Gamecube emulation is borderline. Some games are fine, others have noticeable hitches. Its a really good emulation box right now but an updated version, which looks unlikely anytime soon, could be amazing. EDIT: One thing that is annoying is that a lot of apps that should work well on Android TV aren't compatible with the Shield. Segas Mega Drive releases for instance.
  14. According to Brad Sams, who has a good record of breaking Microsoft news, they are working on a scheme where you can trade in discs in exchange for a download code to go alongside the launch of a discless Xboxone this spring.
