    Star Trek Discovery

    Why do they walk around in the dark using piss poor torches strapped to their shoulders? Did somebody outlaw any future developments of night vision goggles in the future? And Jar Jar Tilly continues to be an annoying arsehole.

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    Is there a reason certain games, such as this, ask you to sign in on your Xbox when you are clearly already signed in, when you first load it up? I'm not complaining, I am just curious as not all games do it.

    I thought the same about that Orb actually @Pavey but then saw how to get to it quite easily That's if I'm correct in thinking that is right near the start of the game?

    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    I'm enjoying running around collecting orbs. But something lacking from the first game, are orbs tantalisingly out of reach until you have levelled up. Right at the start of the first Crackdown, there were orbs that you needed a couple more feet of jump to be able to reach. Or the top of a building had that one ledge slightly higher that try as you might, you just knew you'd have to level up and come back to. I played for hours in the first game with a mate of mine, just seeing which tall buildings we could "cheat" and try and get to the top of. But so far in this, I have collected maybe 100 orbs so far, and every single one has been really easy to get to. Every rooftop has been accessible. It all just feels too easy and not challenging at all, which is what I really liked about the first game.
  5. Off to watch season 3 now it is finally up on Amazon. But Burn Gorman....jesus…..they may as well throw in Statham as well to really fucking ruin it.

    True Detective - Season 3

    I think this has the best old person make up ever.
  7. Is it ok to sell older weapons, the ones that are named after some of the characters you have fought? Or looted. I am short on money and have a ton of old weapons and armour, but I have been loathe to sell them, just in case. I haven't ever played an RPG like this before, and as much as I'm enjoying it, the camera angle is doing my nut in. I'm always trying to swing it that little bit lower and behind, to see what I'm running towards. It's so frustrating :/

    A Quiet Place

    I was totally bored watching this, and can only agree with all the criticisms. It was so dumb in places, and I found mini Susan Boyle particularly annoying and really wanted her taken out by the creatures.

    The Evil Within 2 - Welcome to Resident Hill

    These games would be so much better if the main character could run for longer and faster than Stephen Hawking.

    Amazon Prime Video

    Am I missing something, or via the Fire TV stick is there no obvious way to continue watching stuff? Netflix has the rather handy continue watching section, but I can't see anything even remotely similar for Amazon stuff.

    Star Trek Discovery

    There are some silly little things in this that really wind me up. For example, "hail them" … "beep (hailing sound!).no response sir" literally no time given to get a response at all. Less than a second. But then they think they have lost Burnham and it's "Burnham.....Burnham.....Burnham...." I know it's a silly niggle, but it is so stupid. And I know I'll probably be alone here, but fucking hell I can't stand Tilly. I don't need a court jester in my Star Trek thanks. It was done so much better with Data, used sparingly. It's like somebody watched early episodes of Arrow with all Felicity's dumb waffling, thought it was amusing, gave her a few extra pounds and ginger hair, then stuck her in this show.

    Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown

    Anybody playing on the One X? Few people on Reddit saying that the game occasionally crashes and then when you reboot you get a warning that your console overheated. It is apparently repeatable so isn't actually an over heating problem. Bit loathe to start up my copy now, just in case.

    Forza Motorsport 7

    I wish they would take a leaf out of Polyphonys book and add some more tracks. I suspect we won't see another Forza this year so giving this game a new lease of life with some tracks would be nice.

    Subnautica - Ver 1.0 Out Now

    I usually avoid survival games like the plague, but boy has this one sucked me in! I finished the story the other day, but don't want it to end so am now building a large base down in the depths of the lost river. I have no idea why, other than I have been watching a youtube streamer called Cougarific and his series has been superb. He has some videos showing what he missed after finishing the game and I'm playing along with what he's doing. Then I think I'll start over as I really don't want it to end, and I suspect the new DLC won't be on console for quite some time yet. The only disappointment has been the performance of the game. Even on the One X it runs like dogshit once you expand your base. The framerate drops to single figures which is inexcusable really considering how long the thing was in preview.
  15. I'm surprised there hasn't been any talk of the game anywhere here. For £12 I took a punt and...…..it's ok. The transitions from the show to game are done really nicely I think. It is low on content though. They have icons representing seasons 1 and 2, with 3 to come when it airs on Friday. But in fact seasons 1 and 2 comprise of one episode each. You basically watch the show (which you can skip) and as they start racing in cars, or doing various challenges, it switches to the game and you take over. You can be thrown into a race, a timed section, a drag race, or drifting. It feels a LOT like Need for Speed handling wise. Basically full throttle and hit the handbrake to do a nicely controlled drift around the corners. Some races have various pickups, like smoke or nitrous. It looks functional, if a bit empty on detail. And for some reason they have added really low bitrate soundbites from the show, which sound completely out of place. But it does play well, and if they keep adding episodes it could be pretty good fun.
