  1. Xbox Test Server with Miramar map going up some time today https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/store/p/PLAYERUNKNOWN-S-BATTLEGROUNDS-Public-Test-Server/C4T3V1J9J63V https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-04-23-pubgs-miramar-desert-map-is-playable-on-xbox-one-this-week
  2. Xbox One Console Thread

    God of War is amazing, but I would argue its the first killer exclusive for the PS4. BB and HZD doesnt do anything for me, and Spiderman may turn out great but its not the kind of game I am looking forward to personally, which is more to do with apathy toward the franchise than anything else. Detroit looks interesting, that and God of War are two good reasons to get a PS4 now I think. On the other hand, Microsoft has done major work in software engineering, which has enabled stuff like BC and Game Pass to be possible. Perhaps to the detriment of their exclusive stuff, or maybe thats something that will always be a problem for Microsoft, and how the best Japanese titles seem to be connected to Sony first and foremost. In any case, the xbox has features which are non-existent on the PS4, features which add up to more than the 'killer exclusives' for me. And I have no problem with having both an xbox and a ps4 in order to play these games. PUBG is one of the most influential games to come out in over a decade, and I love Sea of Thieves. State of Decay and Crackdown3 looks brilliant, and apart from Destiny 2 and Fortnite there are no persistent online games of that quality on the PSN service. As good as the PS4 exclusives are, none of them can argue with my collection of 200 + games gathered from GwG over the last few years. So its swings and roundabouts really, unless money are tight there is really no reason to have to choose either or.
  3. DailyMail article on David Cage's Detroit

    I think this looks really cool, but I have always enjoyed Cages games. Never really understood the backlash with the earlier games, all memorable stuff especially Nomad Soul.

    @Vemsie does the DMC4 Remaster for PS4/XO count? Its a pretty sweet update.
  6. Xbox Games with Gold | May 2018

    Im really grateful for MGSV coming to GwG; it was on game pass for a short three months over Christmas and I never had a chance to play it. Ground Zeroes is on game pass as well, so Ive downloaded that to play through before Phantom Pain.
  7. Xbox One X

    How nice of Microsoft to reach out to the poor and destitute in society But I think Nintendo did the same thing with the Switch, and Barcelona FC? Yep
  8. Xbox Games with Gold | May 2018

    I bought the disc of Vanquish when it hit BC, but its nice to have the digital version at hand. An enhanced update at some point would be awesome, it could benefit a lot from a higher res and some work on lights and shadows.
  9. Sounds like just about the right scores for the top three games on that Play list.
  10. PS4 Pro

    Is it only God of War that does this, or other games as well? I dont think I could play anything under those circumstances, even with headphones on just knowing there is that noise in the room.
  11. Xbox Trial weekend going now https://www.vg247.com/2018/04/19/pubg-xbox-one-free-weekend-is-now-live/ And some Xbox items are available for a limited time https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/p/playerunknowns-battlegrounds-5pack/c4g4t04gk6gp
  12. Hearthstone

    There are a couple of suggestions for the hunter deck on icy veins which might be indicative of how the meta plays out; im not really into the theorycrafting sites but that generally helps me keep up to date. Two new spell decks with combinations of Rhok'delar, Y'Shaarj, and Barnes, and then two Baku Hunter decks; one for All-in Face which is pretty much the same as the one on metabomb, and another by a player FreddyB which adds some more midrange power with 2 x Bittertide Hydra. Which is the one Ive had most success with, mulliganning for Tracking, Animal Companion, and Fire Fly.

    That is pretty much how rhetorical exaggeration works. I dont know if this dude had the literal definition of hyperbole on his mind when writing the tweet, but the goal was probably to connect God of War with the singular greatness of each of those games, rather than drawing comparisons between their different gameplay mechanics. Which works brilliantly for propaganda purposes. Some reviews have also claimed it is the game of the generation, yet another hyperbolic statement with a hollow ring to it. Its going to be interesting to see what the fuss is actually about.

    Maybe you are, but the game sure isn't.
