    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    Is anybody else getting the sound glitch still in this expansion? Where the engine noise sticks at one note for ages? Also, when you load up a game, it takes forever for the start/select (whatever they are called) to become useable? At least this is graphically more stable so far. Not had buildings and roads vanish in me yet.

    Subnautica - Ver 1.0 Out Now

    I bought this on the day of preview release on Xbox One, but wanted to wait until a final retail version before playing. So I've started it now and I'm loving it - despite kind of fumbling my way around. But I now have just curious.

    Ride 3

    Nobody playing this? It's a great improvement over Ride 2. And on the Xbox One X you can choose to play at 1080p/60fps. I'm playing on a 1080P TV and while some tracks lack the detail of a Forza or Gran Turismo, they look more than good enough, and the bike models are fantastic. Really having a lot of fun with it, and it's quite a generous package with the amount of tracks and bikes. It's great to be playing motorcycle game where the bikes feel like bikes, instead of the disappointing shit show that was Isle of Man TT.

    Your old arcade and game shop hangouts

    That Game Express store in Stockport! I remember when he was further down the road, up the slight hill next door to Richer Sounds. I bought a fair few SNES imports from him as well as an Atari Jaguar. It went downhill somewhat when he moved near to Stage Door. From my earlier years, my favourite was Atari World in Manchester city centre on Fennel Street was it? Near the corn exchange.

    What are you playing Christmas Day?

    Not sure what my main game will be, but I'll be playing some Steep just for the snow

    Just Cause 4 - After Rain Comes Explosions

    I'm kind of having fun playing it, as I like traversing the world with the parachute and wingsuit. But they have removed the stuff that really hooked me in in the first place. All the small villages/towns have fuck all to do in them now apart from the piss easy challenges. No red stuff to find and blow up, no hidden chests where you followed the blip on your radar....nothing. All they needed to do, starting with JC3, was take the gameplay elements and build a new world to stick them in. But this other team seem determined to mess around with the formula, and keep getting further away from what made JC2 so great. They have built a much more interesting world this time around, and then given you no real reason to go exploring it.

    Just Cause 4 - After Rain Comes Explosions

    Totally agree about the challenges..... "jump through this ring in vehicle "X" " ...oh ok, easy enough because here is the vehicle parked right next to the ring! As Max Damage has said, the wingsuit ones are shite, always 3 rings and always piss easy. One odd thing as well, with the gold edition you get access to the rocket pack flying thing right from the start of the game. But to equip it, you need to pause the game into the actual pause menu where you quit the game, access the DLC section etc. You equip it there from a customisation option. It warns you that doing wingsuit challenges are void if using it. But why the fuck is it in a separate section like that? It makes no sense! Also, when doing missions with multiple parts, more often than not, if you die as you get to the next part of the mission, when you get back into the game, it treats it as though you completed that section. So you miss seeing what you might even needed to have done!? Nice if you are struggling I guess, but at least give me the option to retry.

    Ashen

    I'm really enjoying this. I really like the art direction and it's like a nice relaxing Dark Souls which suits me just fine.

    Just Cause 4 - After Rain Comes Explosions

    That says Avalanche New York. I thought it was the Swedish team that made Just Cause 2? That explains a lot then, as the New York team made JC3 didn't they?

    The last Remnant

    One thing I didn't like in the original, was the towns looking like big areas, but having lots of loading as you went from place to place. Did the PC version improve on that? Or do they load quicker now? Really fancy giving this another go.
  11. Well I liked that trailer. It's basically Mad Max 2 (the movie) isn't it? The player in what looks like Max's V8 with your dog companion. I'm ok with that

    Game Awards 2018 (1:30am England time)

    Oh dear....that was it? So gamers are all one big family - but it's some kind of miracle getting 3 people on stage together. Hmmm

    Game Awards 2018 (1:30am England time)

    So what was the super special surprise that Geoff Keighley hinted at on Twitter??
  14. This isn't due next Christmas is it? I'm sick of seeing trailers for games that are years away from release.

    Just Cause 4 - After Rain Comes Explosions

    I'm still sort of enjoying it on the X. Mainly because the world feels much more like JC2 than 3 and has some decent variety to it. But it really is ugly....the water is a joke. There are too many instances of not knowing what is happening. Small villages had a question mark against them initially, with no clue as to what you were supposed to do there. It turns out it's just stunt stuff with the vehicles.....but until I unlocked a certain mission, I had no idea what I was supposed to do to start doing those challenges. And a lot of the red stuff you can blow up just respawns now once you load up a save game. So in theory you could stay in the same region and blow shit up, wait for your next game, blow the same shit up, and increase the damage meter that way. Bobbins! I have to agree with Max Damage, that hopefully a B team were making this while the main team are working on Rage 2. Because otherwise that may well turn out to be a big bag of shite. Is it using an ID engine or Avalanches does anybody know? This is by far the worst Xbox One X game graphically. You'd be forgiven for thinking they had forgotten to add whatever tells the game which version of the console it is running on.
