  1. Very meh showing for me, most of it was "I guess I'll play it anyway if it's on Gamepass". I will say this about most Xbox showcases; they just don't understand the concept of a megaton announcement in the way Nintendo do 🤷‍♂️
  2. Tunic

    Started it last night...it's brilliant so far 😍 so simple yet so effective game design, and already finding it bloody difficult in places!
  3. Xbox Series S | X Console Discussion

    Did you get the message from Phil in yours? I cancelled mine in the end, what with Christmas coming up and kids presents to buy, and I also thought that as I'll eventually get a Series X, I'll have a new controller with that. That's what I'm telling myself anyway despite only wanting it for collectors purposes 😢 I know it was never going to happen in a million years with licensing issues, but the one 360 game that I managed to keep after my console was stolen all those moons ago has still managed to avoid backwards compatibility. 007 Bloodstone, the true 3rd Daniel Craig Bond film 😎
  4. Monster Hunter Rise

    I mean, if they could make some weird app based system to swap saves between Wii U and 3DS on 3 Ultimate, surely this can't have been beyond them 🤷‍♂️ This game continues to be possibly my greatest disappointment in my long and storied gaming life 😂💔
  5. Xbox Series S | X Console Discussion

    Pre ordered mine on Thursday...quite possibly to sit in its box on my shelf for years to come 😎😂
  6. Nintendo Direct : 23.09.21 (11pm UK time)

    There just has to be...HAS to be something Monster Hunter Rise related in here, G rank DLC or whatever, my NSO subscription for another year depends on it! (And at the moment the auto renew is off) Hopes are not high, but yet we can only dream
  7. Xbox Series S | X Console Discussion

    Is it just me, or have 343 Industries been terrible custodians of the Halo franchise? I feel like every one since 4 has either been a let down or some catastrophic bungling has happened (here's looking at you MCC's launch and first year or so). Every time Bonnie Ross walks out on stage at a MS conference, you might as well disregard what she's about to say 😂🤦‍♂️
  8. Sea of Thieves (XBO/PC) - New Rare game

    in case anyone missed it who might be interested, or wants to watch it again like I had to 😂 I enjoy the original lore they've created themselves in SoT so my initial reaction was one of trepidation, but the more I've read up on it the more it sounds like this isn't just tagging it on, more like a proper integration. Either way new locales, enemies and Tall Tales makes this actually quite exciting. I'm sure I'll be playing it next week so you don't have to, anyway 😂☠️
  9. Most of that was generic "look we have games and sequels for me", especially RedFall...can we not end on a game that is just a cutscene that has no gameplay at all? 🤷‍♂️ Having said that, it does make me happy to be in the Xbox ecosystem to see so many "day 1 Gamepass" games, which means I'll likely try some I wouldn't have before. Being a big Sea of Thieves fan, I was abit taken aback by the Pirates stuff, wasn't sure I liked it at first! Re watched that trailer though, and it's tall tales mainly (their take on a story mode) so I'll be really intrigued to see what they do with it. By the looks of the trailer, they've been testing different elements in the "Insider" version of the game individually as new enemies or weapons, without giving the game away as to what it was all coming together for! Overall I mean it's a good showing in generic gaming terms with a few touches here and there, should at least keep existing Xbox gamers happy. And my 75 year old dad who's been asking me about Flight Simulator for the last year, at this rate he'll be getting a Series X before me 😂
  10. Games You Never Played

    Aero the Acrobat on the Megadrive! I can remember pouring over the pictures of it in some old gaming magazines, I'd go to bed dreaming about playing it...and then for some unknown reason by the time my birthday came around, I didn't ask for it 🤷‍♂️ still a big regret of mine 😢
  11. Monster Hunter Rise

    A choice presented itself in front of me last night, to play either Rise or World...and I went with World 🤷‍♂️ I definitely feel that Rise has the better game play, I love the zipping around and how fluid fights feel, but the lack of substantial content (I've taken personal offence to this drop feeding of a few quests every month 😂) now I've reached a certain level has really disappointed me. Think I'm about HR80 with no desire to get to 100 to face the Valstrax or Apex Zinogre because I know at the moment after that is simply the abyss again until the end of the month. I'm lucky enough to have both options and at the moment I feel like World will better scratch my MH itch. I realise that when I properly came to World Iceborne had been released, imagine if I'd started properly at the beginning I might have had the same feelings as monsters like Deviljho and Zinogre were only added later from what I remember. I prefer the 'world' of World as well, I mean story has never been MH's strongest point but World feels abit more lived in and breathable than Rise at this point. I'm sure they'll announce something massive at E3 now that'll make me eat my words, but I want to try and the Alatreon and Fatalis bested at least before I come back to Rise 😎

    "And so, yet again, @nekunando has fulfilled the prophecy; destined to be cursed to a lifetime of desire, impulse, indecision and then immediate regret, only to repeat the same cycle, sometimes with the same console, months later" (KG 3:16) Madness. I mean we all knew it was coming, but still, absolute madness 🤦‍♂️😂
  13. Xbox Series S | X Console Discussion

    Talked myself out of it on my dog walk, come back home and open this thread back up and will power is leaving my body 😂 My new plan is to put aside some money over the next few months ready to buy it out right, not convinced being "locked in" to it is the best idea at the moment, at least with just Game Pass I can just drop it any time... Christ I've got myself in a right pickle with this 😂 maybe I just buy Mario Golf on the 25th and be done with it 😛
  14. Xbox Series S | X Console Discussion

    I know, right! 😛 Not usually like me at all either. I'll give myself a talking to tonight and try and get on with it without dithering about it 🤦‍♂️
  15. Xbox Series S | X Console Discussion

    I've got pre buyers guilt; finally some All Access Series X's in stock, and now I'm talking myself out of it, convincing myself I don't need it after all...🤷‍♂️🤦‍♂️
