  1. Seems this is how getting a release and even better for Game Pass subbers it's heading to that platform. Glad this is getting a release I was thinking it was going to get canned at some point!
  2. Fantastic had my eye on this for a while.... I even started a thread up a while back for it. However nobody seemed interested.
  3. Read my post above... Just MS tax again.. but as can be expected you are in a closed system. At least there is an option to expand storage....
  4. Indeed. But you clearly understand the point I was making... a SSD is much faster than an old school hard disk. But going from an SSD to MS's solution is not worth that much extra money over a SSD drive for example. Or even a nVMe drive (which are around £80 for 1TB). The one in my PC runs at 1.5GBps... three times faster than a SATA 3.0 SSD. Which is the tech MS will be using I guess. Anyway £180 for 1TB of fast storage is too expensive IMHO. That is the point I was making. Edit. It isn't even that quick apparently https://www.storagereview.com/review/seagate-storage-expansion-card-for-xbox-series-xs-review. However depends what the test rig was. My PC is over three years old and the nVMe drive on that reads at 1.5GBps. (that is giga bytes not bits!).
  5. Just bought a 1TB SSD for the PC @ £80. Sure the Xbox expansion card will be super fast etc. BUT. Do we honestly really care that much? I'd rather have 1TB of slightly slower speed (which is still much faster than spinny old school hard disks) for say £99 (with MS's Xbox tax added) than pay nearly double because "its a bit faster". Why I went back to PC for Xbox gaming in the end. Pays your money and make your choice. If you are in console land you have little choice. But it is what it is. And the Xbox machines offer a lot of performance for in relative terms little money.
  6. TBH I'm done with the series now. Peaked at FH2 for me. FH4 because it was set in UK and added weather was a highlight - but never liked the actual "game" bit. Great environments and graphics etc but in the end just felt like a mindless grind in the same way many RPG games are. And then the clothing etc they added.. It will have its audience I'm just bored of it now.
  7. Indeed. Think that is where I'm heading.
  8. Had a Google around and found this:- "Reddit - linux_gaming - Virtual machine for gaming?" https://amp.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/hdaj63/virtual_machine_for_gaming/ So looks like there are things I can try.
  9. Hi all. Probably one for the more techie amongst you. So I'm thinking of rebuilding my PC and running Linux as my base OS. Putting a VM host on there ( probably VirtualBox) and running Windows 10 as a VM on that. So the question is has anyone done this and played games through such a setup? Do VMs now have more ability to access GPUs etc so you don't loose performance? Any advice would be much appreciated before I attempt this! Thanks in advance....
  10. Have one of these kicking about if anyone is interested? It a collectors edition Skyward Sword Guide. You know when they used to make paper ones!!!! Bought back when I had the Wii version. Send me a PM with an offer.... Not sure if this should be in trading or not but thought I'd post in the topic area on this as it might get lost amongst the noise. Note: This did come with some sort of cloth map but its somewhere in the house after a house move so not sure of its exact location!
  11. Ratchet and Clank : Rift Apart. Really enjoying it nice to play something that is full of humour and lovely environments. Old school gameplay I guess but the time rifts make things a bit more interesting. The visuals are lovely too as is the sound. Like playing an interactive Pixar cartoon.
  12. Never had any issues when I had an X or now on the PS5. I tend to only have a couple of games on the go though and just delete stuff if I don't play it after a week or so. Unless you have a slow internet connection I see no need to have a local disk rammed with things I don't play. I just download what I want on a night ready for the next day. And download again if I feel a pressing need to revisit something.
  13. The magnificent trufflepigs. Wonderful experience.
  14. No. :) Gaming is something I enjoy over watching other media so it fits in where TV and films usually do.
