    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    Which could be levelled at most games these days to be honest (at least AAA games). However think the devil will be in the detail. It looks and feels like the original Crackdown. I expect it will have more bells and whistles and subtle details and upgrades everywhere

    They'll probably patch it if enough people shout out about it...

    Agree completely. Me neither. Just get on and play it. If you liked the first Crackdown you will love this. Crackdown powered up.

    One game series I never got around to playing. Sigh. Only so much time in the world... but I have one downloaded somewhere from Games With Gold or GamePass. Will investigate at somepoint... but first... well... Crackdown 3?!

    Yes this seems to be the trend these days unfortunately. And comparisons to games where its not really compatible because the game itself sits in its own pretty niche area. Crackdown IMHO is one such game. Only thing that has come remotely close was infamous on the PS3/4 even then these were not as much fun as Crackdown IMHO. I just love the freedom in Crackdown to do what the hell you want when you want. No artificial barriers, no hidden weapons. Power up as and when you want to. It's like a breath of fresh air in this seemingly very linear age of game designs. Part of the reason I never really read reviews these days. Either the reviewer is completely biased or employed to say things or the just make silly comparisons to other things whilst not reviewing the game they are supposed to be reviewing on its merits. Don't care much for games "journalism" these days TBH. Not enough time to read most of the drivel written. Edge is probably the only mag I read from time to time. Now I just grab something I like the look of and give it a go. Mostly my games come through Steam and Game Pass these days anyway so no stress cash investment. Another thing I like about GP. Just bob about trying different games seeing which ones I enjoy playing. Saves me reading reviews TBH. Best reviews are from the players themselves mostly.... and experiences of gamers on forums such as this.

    Yes indeedy. I even used to hear that blinking orb hum during sleep too... Collected every orb in the original Crackdown. Found orb hunting that addictive... also of course having lots of fun blowing things up and getting distracted many times during the process....

    Absolutely. Its not RDR or GTA. Two games I actually loathe TBH - love the open world elements but just can't be bothered with the sprawling worlds created as technically accomplished as they are. I want a GAME. A game with tight controls, in a world that is a playground to have FUN in with a super powered human which who I can evolve and shoot lots of stuff and blow things up in. What I don't want is a game that tries to be a film or create an immersive environment to provide a world for a story. I want to make my own stories. Like I did when I was a kid. I want to throw things around and create my own adventures. I love the non-linear approach of the Crackdown series. Kill a villain any way you want with whatever you want anytime you want... So for people who want GTA/RDR go play those. Leave Crackdown as it is. For me this is and always will be a true gamers game. And thank MS for being brave enough to invest in this. We need more games like this. Sick and tired of boring open world games with "deep" storylines... yaaawwwwnnnn.

    Let the haters hate. I'm be busy having too much fun to watch or read their lame comments TBH. For me it ticks all the boxes, plays and delivers exactly what I expected.

    OK. Couldn't resist a download on launch day. Had a bit of time on it this morning (played until the city opened up). Well its true to the original Crackdown with some great tweaks to the controls and additions. Its the little refinements everywhere that make it so far... anyone noticed if you jump and quickly tap the jump button in mid jump you get a little boost... gives you an extra chance at making that jump you might have fallen short on before. Also most of the buildings are climbable now and I don't seem to be slipping from the sides of buildings that much anymore. Loving the graphic updates too its like this is what Crackdown would have been like given the processing power. The lighting, the neon glow to things. Feels like I'm playing in a real life 2000AD comic strip! Really impressed with it so far builds on Crackdown which for me can only be a good thing. Tight controls. Small city. High on fun. Has all the elements I like about open world games but much more fun. Love being a superhuman and just playing around. It will be interesting to see what multiplayer is like too. Thats it for me until Sunday afternoon/night now. Enjoy everyone!

    So is that humming orb sound there!!!! Really itching to play this but will have to wait until Sunday night. Beer and snacks will be at the ready though. And it will be played at 4K on my Xbox One X. Where its supposed to be played. @Kevvy Metal - What a project to work on! Lots of interesting tech to play with knowing MS... And despite the whining around the 'net about CD2 I for one thoroughly enjoyed it - the additions were subtle but added suitably to the first game without completely taking away what everyone loved about it. Hell even though I have this on GP I might even buy a physical copy of this. The Crackdown series are amongst my favourite games ever.

    That is all I ever wished for. A revised and revamped 4K Crackdown. Oh that I can also play on the PC if I choose to. Oh and comes as part of Game Pass. MS you are delivering for me these days. Loving Game Pass.

    Who gives a flying fig about silly critic reviews these days?! I'll wait for opinions of people who have played it on here. Besides. I have game pass. I can play in 4K. I can play Crackdown in 4K. What is there not to like?

    Collecting old magazines

    Yes best to keep select ones... used to have piles of Edge magazines but just binned them when I moved house keeping the "File" issues which were single volume issues containing a selection of articles from a range of issues. Have three of them covering all the early Edges and kept a few special Edges back. In particular the 100th issue whose cover was created by Shigeru Miyamoto. Like any art... its best to curate a collection of some great pieces and appreciate them rather than have stacks of stuff. So pay that bit extra and get the best pieces for the collection you can! And only get a few pieces for each era!
