    A couple of other questions. Do the variously coloured small circles or rings on buildings have any significance? Do bosses scale at all to your level once you have exposed them?

    Agreed. Just wish you could carry 2 gadgets at once, or 1 gadget and 1 grenade.

    Should have added, the other really useful button is the right hand side one with horizontal lines- possibly called the "menu" button. If you hover over any tile on your home page, or your list of installed or ready to install games it will give you the available options for that item.

    Pin all your favourite games and apps (or create subgroups for them). The guide button is your friend - from there whilst ignore you can: message start / join a party see whose doing what review your achievements on your current game take a screen shot (Y) or record a clip (x) review your most recent captures start to broadcast (I think) probably other things

    Quick question - how are you supposed to overload the industrial machine things? By chucking boulders into the pits where they are coming down? Grabbed a fast car and went for a spin around the freeway - the poor lass couldn't keep up in her commentary with all the sites which need attention... I don't understand the comments along the lines "its just a 360 game". The draw distances are insane. I also like the blend of 50s Stalinist and ultra-colourful design, odd though that reads.

    Final Fantasy IX

    Yes, it's excellent. It just feels 1000% more accessible than before even playing totally by the rules and not enabling any cheats. I suppose I will hit a gigantic brick wall before too long but still.... Tadpoles It also helps that you get 10,000 gill at the beginning by rinsing the fencing duel which is now a complete doddle - all those years of QTEs have paid off!

    I think we have been a bit spoiled by Forza and FH. FH3 is still a great game, and has more extremes of location but FH4 is wonderful - the lighting during any day during any season is something to behold. FH4 is moving toward GAAS I suppose with the drip of new career chapters, seasonal events and so forth; its a slightly different animal to FH3 in that regard.

    Final Fantasy IX

    Is it the same code for each format? I'm really enjoying the XB version, including all the cheesy side activities. No technical problems here either. You can't rename characters but that isn't a biggie. Just bested a certain forum member's namesake Probably the end of CD1 or thereabouts.

    A playoff final at Wembley between Salford and FC Fylde would be embarrassing - probably the Vase teams would bring more support! I still reckon Wrexham will have to finish above Leyton to be promoted automatically.

    I guessed this might be the case

    Sutton Utd 0: Barrow 1 Terrible performance by Sutton. Barrow played long ball when building from the back but mixed things up on the counter, playing with pace and precision, and the writing was pretty much on the wall all game. They somehow contrived to miss an open goal and find the post when scoring would be easier, not to mention having a good penalty shout which was deemed a dive before they finally tucked one away very late on. We had fuck all decent attempts, despite fielding all the strikers (we have signed a young lad from Harrow and have Roarie Deacon - he of the FA cup wonder run 2 seasons ago - back from Dundee although he looked way off the pace) by the end of the game. The trouble is, that left no midfield. No wit, no attempt to play the ball on the ground, simply dreadful. And Barrow didn't bring their choir this time either. Next up Barnet at home so we'll see if that challenge will bring about any change in approach or performance.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    I approve of one of the tweaks from the latest patch - displaying the 3 star & 2 star targets for many of the story chapters. Beforehand it was a little deflating to think one had done well only to get just the 1 star.

    Oh dear Mine was on a rocky outcrop on the coast (possibly near the lighthouse). A nowhere location really; maybe the colour didn't stand out particularly well v the sea/rock/ sky background /get excuse in early.

    Yes definitely. Just as I look at cars differently after a lot of Forza Horizon. Most folk here would be able to tell you, at least roughly, where they found the last agility orb in the first game.

    Gaming tropes that need to go away

    Generators which always require re-powering. Curiously when the leads have been re-coupled and the missing batteries located, the lift either descends or ascends, the doors open and ............the enemies pile out. I mean how long were they waiting in there?
