  1. Not exactly the point I was trying to make, but whatever.
  2. I know it's not something to be applauded by any means, but equally I wouldn't say "well, a character has boobs in some cutscenes that look a bit ridiculous so I'm thinking about not playing it now" either. The clips reminds me of Darksiders a lot for some reason, not a bad thing. But a bit more anime-angsty rather than fun.
  3. Abandoned Games (2018 Edition)

    Kingdom: New Lands I had a look what happened. Seemed like I'd died before it switched itself off (it was set to 1hr). However, somewhat weirdly the game hadn't actually ended as the crown hadn't been nicked, I wasn't on screen and the crown was just sitting there, floating on the edge of the pier where I'd left myself waiting for impending doom. My avatar wasn't there, but I was sure I could hear the trotting sound when I moved. The screen locks to the crown, so I just held "right" for a while and I eventually trotted into view. Couldn't pick up the crown. So what did I do? Well, I was one day off the 60 day achievement so left the game running. Turns out nothing could pick up the crown. So what did I do then? Left it running 'til it got to day 100 to get the achievement while I did some DIY in the garage. The Xbox phone app is pretty cool, it remotely alerts you when you hit an achievement that you're cheesing in a filthy manner but I felt no shame as the game deserved it. I've deleted it now, for the final time. It was some fun, but fell on the wrong side of endless rote busywork over being interesting enough to see it through. And it's so slow I can't believe it doesn't have some sort of fast-forward function.
  4. Xbox One Console Thread

    I think you're oversimplifying it a little here, it's not just creating a game to run multiplatform it's also allowing the game to work seamlessly between those platforms as well, even if those platforms are broadly similar. Even if they're wired into the same underlying infrastructure at some point it's still got to be able to function where I can kick off a game on my PC, play online with some Xbox players for a while, then the next day continue on exactly where I left off on the Xbox instead. It's certainly a push towards Xbox being a service, although it's still got a long way to go.
  5. You're saying it wrong!

    I always go for pop-olo-crois, even though given the stylisation on the letters there it must be po-po-lo-crois. It's a weird one, I often say it in my head for some reason but bar the name I've literally no idea about the game whatsoever. Knowing would probably remove the wonder of it, you know? Given it's probably shite, whatever it is.
  6. Yeah, I've got a huuuge list of BC stuff already that were all nicely sat waiting, it just didn't feel right the way this was going! Didn't realise Ninja Gaiden Black is only £6.75 as well, was thinking they were both £8.99
  7. I'm at work and was looking at buying Orta through xbox.com, but it always redirects from the Xbox One listings through to the old style purchase page for the 360. Same for Ninja Gaiden Black, the other game I'm interested in. If I buy it that way will I just be getting something I can solely play on 360, or will they be available on the One?

    Kingdom: New Lands I caved. And I did what I thought would work, and it worked. And it was still boring, yet strangely moreish. Relaxing and cathartic. Then I got to a point, I think 49 days in, where I thought "I really can't be arsed, I wonder what'll happen if I just leave it" so I went to bed and woke up to having got the 50 day achievement and looking at the Xbox app it tells me that the longest survival I've had is 59 days Three days is about 20 minutes, and every 5th (or is it 10th?) night brings a strong wave of enemies so either I died on day 60 or the Xbox is set to shut itself off after an hour of inactivity. This is a silly game. I'll see where I did get to out of curiosity, then I'm never playing it again. Honest.
  9. Football Thread 2017/18

    Having seen Paul Schole's punditry, I'd have to question anyone who describes character as one of his qualities.
  10. Xbox One X

    I already did! Handily, and perhaps unsurprisingly, it was in the room behind the box. The meeting room that's totally curtained in so nobody can see in. The meeting room that's going to be getting booked out a lot reeeeal soon. Got Forza Horizon 3 and Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice to have a look at on that front, as well as that Insects sampler. Surprised how few games have the HDR certification, to be honest.
  11. Hang on, is that not in Rare Replay? I've no idea but kind of expected or hoped it was.
  12. Abandoned Games (2018 Edition)

    Kingdom: New Lands You know what, I can't stop thinking about this. What I'd do differently. How I could easily beat it, even without the best of seeds. And it's only about 500MB to re-download. Gah, fuck off, game!
  13. Xbox One X

    I have a plan, it goes like this: 1. Bring my Xbox One X into work. 2. Discover where the contents of this box have ended up:
  14. Abandoned Games (2018 Edition)

    Kingdom: New Lands Yeah, that's gotten dumped. Restarted now I knew how to play it a bit more, but my word it's slow and also a right pain if you don't get a good land layout. Nevertheless, I continued and was doing great. Wasted perhaps too many coins on Knights that I couldn't work out how to use, but they were handy in defence. Then I made one single mistake on about day 19, starting a wall upgrade without realising the time of day and that was that, near everything fucked but not enough to realise for about another half hour of soldiering on that it'd be ultimately impossible to complete the level. The thought of repeating the whole fairly unvaried process at snail's pace didn't fill me with any excitement whatsoever. Thus far, Gamepass does seem like a good idea but I'd have probably been better off not wasting my time with it at all. Why am I even trying out these things?! If I really wanted them, I'd have bought them.
  15. You're saying it wrong!

    Here's one, how are you actually supposed to pronounce the Namco short-lived peripherals NeGcon? It's actually neeji-con or something, I think.
