  1. Google Stadia

    Phil Harrison's reign of terror continues to yet another platform! A shame but completely foreseeable; if they weren't launching with some big exclusives, then it had to be a Netflix type thing; if it had been I probably would have bitten. As it is, Xbox game pass (and the potential with streaming I mentioned in the Xbox thread) will likely put pay to this pretty swiftly until all the features are there that they've promised and it becomes subscription!
  2. Xbox One Console Discussion

    Stepped into the future today and got an email saying I could try the Xbox game streaming beta, I'm sure not at all times to coincide with the launch of Stadia... I'm running off an original Google Pixel XL so my phone is a good four years out of date, and yet, somehow, miraculously, it all works! It wasn't perfect, but I tried Ori, Sea of Thieves and Gears 5, and they all worked with varying stability, Gears you could literally see continually rendering, but the input was great (just used my Xbox controller) and once I switched to 4G it was alot more stable and clear. I was tempted by Stadia when it was announced as I'm a bit of a Google fan, but no new games and it not being the Netflix type system I thought it was put me off abit. With Xbox and PlayStation both using this system, the future is here! R.I.P the Switch 😛
  3. Luigi's Mansion 3 (2019)

    About 5 hours into this now and... I wish I was playing the original again! It's enjoyable, sometimes creative and the cutscenes and animations have raised a laugh, but it's definitely missing something...charm, perhaps? I'm finding in just going into rooms, hoovering, blowing, using torch etc, rinse and repeat. It's good fun, but not at the same level as the first one or even the second on 3DS as it stands, in fact it just feels like more of the same of the second one rather than something new!
  4. The Jimquisition Thread

    Well... I haven't played Fortnite for the best part of a year but with the advent of chapter 2 I've got back into it recently; I've been racking up wins left, right and centre, generally killing most players I come across (probably averaging 3 kills a game) and generally thinking I might be able to make a career out of streaming the game now I'm so good at it... Consider my resignation letter to my actual job rescinded, I've been had! 😂
  5. PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

    Absolutely mental consistency. I think the PS2 is a bit of anomaly in that it's ridiculously high, but to be selling consoles at pretty much 100 million every version shows its not luck at all, they always manage to tap into the magic something that gamers want, even a "failure" like the PS3! They still can't design a decent controller, though...🕵️
  6. General Switch Discussion

    Yeah got that through today, my son caught wind of it and saw Mario, now he's asking what santa might bring him at Christmas from it...
  7. The Jimquisition Thread

    If you can watch the start of his Call of Duty Jimpression and not laugh at the coronation Street scene he's used, you're not human
  8. Mario Kart Tour (mobile)

    I imagine it's also to give a bit of weight to Tour as well; if it's considered the next game in the series then people will take it more seriously than just a throw away mobile game. I'd love to know either way, apparently my error code means I need to uninstall and reinstall the app (done that) restart my phone (done that) and if neither of those work (they haven't) the I've got to wait for a version update...great...
  9. Mario Kart Tour (mobile)

    I've been doing "Google Opinions" which is answering questions on where you've been shop wise etc, which gets me some pennies every time I fill one out; I've saved up about £7 so far, so once I actually get to play this I may be tempted to try the pass for a month, see if it's worth it or not!
  10. Mario Kart Tour (mobile)

    At least you've got to play it, can't get it loaded up at all yet!
  11. Gears 5

    An hour and half later, SNES games haven't had a look in: Good to be back in the Gears universe, glad they had a recap at the start as well as I'd forgotten half of what happened in 4! Classic gameplay, good patter between all the characters and Act 1 chapter 1 completed, looking forward to seeing how it all pans out and what new game play is brought to the table too!
  12. Gears 5

    I got home from work last night around 10 to see if the game had downloaded and wondered if you may have started it, @Hero-of-Time... Of course you've finished it already! 😂 Looking forward to starting this, had thought I would do this morning but those SNES games are tempting me...
  13. Gears 5

    I think there was always a long enough gap in between playing the Gears games for me to slightly forget/just accept what was happening at the start of each new entry in the series, never realised the books were so intertwined with the games! Before 4 was released they were fan faring about a movie tie in being released, no sign of that yet, either...
  14. Xbox One Console Discussion

    Yeah it can be a pain when nonsense like that happens; happened while I was playing Ori and then I had to uninstall the game and re download it as it corrupted the game file...which is fine for a 15GB game but Gears is 100GB or so 🙈 Super Lucky's Tale as well, of course! There are some gems on Xbox, once you get through the UI... Holding firm on Gears, I've got Monday off so will try and continue with Arkham Origins instead of giving in, he says...
  15. Xbox One Console Discussion

    How are you getting on with operation Gears? Once you've finished up with the series and 5, I'd recommend Ori as a completely different style of game to sink your teeth into, it's a great Metroid style game and beautifully presented
