    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    I have to say, the concept of filling a garage full of cars is really wearing off, particularly as they're not really tangible, unlike your physical garages in TDU. If I could put together some sort of Jay Leno's garage, complete with gorgeous forza vista mode, I think I'd enjoy that. But we've had a rapid succession (relatively) of collect-a-thons now, and I'm really starting not to care. The number of new cars feels like it's thinning out, and that's because there's only so many exiting enough cars every year. It was a brief novelty to buy the Kia Stinger, first to see a Kia in game and second because I quite fancy it, but there endeth my purchasing spree. Everything else has come from spins. However, I did get really existed at the 3 FEs I've won, can't wait to try the drift car in the summer. I also got a speed boost FE VW camper van last night, outstanding. I was really thinking about this last night - remember grinding your guts out to get into the Skyline in Gran Turismo 3? That felt like an achievement, suddenly being unleashed in that thing. An abundance of cars is almost like pirating games, having so many that I don't care about them. I think this is why I like the barn finds so much, tends to be more thought gone into them. I was gob smacked by the Mk3 Escort RS. Couldn't wait to get inside, and then I was gushing over those awful sliding heat controls and soundly ignored by my family as I did so. But it was a lovely bit of nostalgia. Anyway, it's fine, it's more about the exploring and racing, so I'm not worried about the cars. I've already got more than I'll probably ever drive. I guess the difference here is that I'll fully upgrade my favourites, which is a neat twist.

    Nah, I've left 5 sitting there on the map ready to do with the kids, we're always a bit gutted when we've finished them. They get a kick out of finding it, and I enjoy seeing what car is next.

    Outstanding, with the super wheel spins this gives, I got the FE Landover that's the current forzathon shop thing. Farted out 1.4m points barely trying, bonkers car. Of course, no idea what my overall tally is. Getting so many cars thrown at me, some fairly exotic, that I'm thinking the houses with bonuses is where all the money needs to go first.

    Xbox One Console Thread

    I've got older Xbox one pads (i.e., pre Xbox S) that have the headphone socket. I want to use these on my PC (surface) without the cable - am I right in thinking these older ones aren't bluetooth, and need this adapter to work? https://www.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-one/accessories/adapters/wireless-adapter-windows

    Microsoft’s xCloud Game Streaming Service

    It'll depend on your internet provider. When you're playing a shooter, it's easier to get a tiny amount of data to you quickly. For streaming from things like PS Now, when you do something that thing needs to be encoded and sent to you quickly, so variances in throughout, which stuff like Netflix is going to naturally iron out with buffering, are more apparent. I bet it'll depend on your local equipment, too. We're all going to have to get into quality of service settings on our routers, which at least helps on our side of things. @Uncle Mike cheers for the Wireshark suggestion, going to have the Pi say monitoring my network traffic to figure out why the Xbox streaming blips.

    Nintendo Switch

    Throw up a "loading" screen, Team 17 should know better from their Amiga days. That's interesting though Ste, I figured there Switch would just hammer along naturally with solid state storage.

    Has anyone bought the 2m house which unlocks fast travel anywhere? Got the money but don't know where the house is. Don't really want to force myself to explore all the roads either, I like to drag it out a bit

    Microsoft Rewards

    Having bought FH4 on the 11th, a day before the offer ended, I no longer have the ability to claim to 6000 or 1500 points. I hope they're added automatically at some point, I definitely activated those two offers. If an offer runs through the 12th, the ability to claim it should stay there throughout. They need to be clearer in general, too. 3000 for doing a couple of things in game pass. I'm 2 out of 3, and need to get an achievement from "this list of game pass games", one of which I already had installed. So I did, 2 days ago, and nowt. edit - they need to make their messaging MUCH better. I just found, on reddit, a link to the game pass offer page and it actually lists the qualifying games: No wonder it didn't work.

    Well, I'm back to zero points on the Forzathon. I honestly can't be bothered to plough on and hope that it adds up each attempt after the 5 days elapses.

    PlayStation 4 Console Thread

    It definitely speaks to a lack of experience in identity management. Until recently, their Sony rewards site accepted logins over http. Now PSN makes money hand over fist, I hope they're investing in better practices across the platform.

    Mobile devices surely throttle too much, even if they did find parity in terms of oomph. Although, on such a small screen it's easier to fudge visual quality.

    Or just hire them in general.

    Ok, but why are totals getting reset? I can probably just about do 7m at a million a night, with about an hour's dad gaming time.
