  1. Microsoft bought Zenimax/Bethesda

    Especially when Sea of Thieves takes up most of the time 😎 I think the only Bethesda series I've ever been find of is Wolfenstein, apart from that...meh from me. However what an announcement! I've seen the bits saying the games will be day 1 Game Pass, but nothing about exclusivity...I wonder if they'll keep the games multiplatform (the big series at least) to take in as much money as they can.
  2. Monster Hunter Rise (26th March 2021)

    This looks like a mix up of World meets the 3DS era games; you've got the Bug Wire (or whatever it's called) which seems like an extension of the clutch claw, open maps with no loading screens...with no fire flies or hit numbers popping up 😛 I've grown to love World, I'm about HR130 and got the MR99 Ruiner Nergigante quest to do tomorrow night to reach MR100 or above...but I'm looking forward to getting a portable and home console MH I can sink my teeth into again!
  3. Sea of Thieves (XBO/PC) - New Rare game

    Cheeky thread bump! With some chat about this game in the Xbox Game Pass thread, I wondered if we could gather an NE rabble together at some point to sail the seas and cause havoc, mayhem and sing sea shanties while we do it!
  4. Xbox Game Pass (Console & PC)

    Sea of Thieves has come such a long way, I loved the base game mechanics, the music, the Rare charm (which they somehow retained despite being a completely different team and generation) but the game itself has come so far, and all with no additional cost for DLC etc (except if you want those Banjo themes for you ship...) it's such a great game now for Xbox, absolutely love it ❤️
  5. Xbox Series S | X - 10th November

    @Julius Tech Radar have a bit of a financial breakdown Here that outlines what the deals are, and the penalties; looks like two missed payments and your APR goes from 0% to about 25% and you start getting fined etc. Let's be honest, they're absolutely banking (lulz) on looking like the cheaper option, I bet the Klarna credit checks are simple as anything...and then they'll be an element of hoping people don't make the payments so they get that extra money from them!
  6. Xbox Series S | X - 10th November

    Well if you're clearly like me and just see the words FIFA then you'll be easily swept in to it, too 😛 (To be fair the last football game I bought and still play is PES 2016, but the power of FIFA is still an eye catcher I guess)
  7. Xbox Series S | X - 10th November

    Yeah, absolutely is I reckon. I mused when Halo Infinite was delayed that they would somehow use Game Pass as the big selling point as there was no "tent pole". Now they've announced that EA Play is being integrated into Game Pass at no extra cost, that's another 60 and some big one's like the FIFA's etc, as someone who uses Game Pass that Series X price on All Access is amazing, I'll be tempted to go for that finances allowing.
  8. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity (20th November 2020)

    I would tell anyone that listened that my main criticism of BOTW was that the more interesting story was the one set 100 years ago...I'm absolutely thrilled with this, looks amazing! Really keen to play it, the more I've thought about 3D All Stars the less I'm interested in it...so colour me up for this!
  9. Xbox Series S | X - 10th November

    Still baffles me why they try to keep these things secret, or indeed how leaks get out (talking about the Lockhart rumour that'd been about for months, this 'reveal' was clearly controlled) If the only/main difference is the disc drive then count me in for this version. Still interested to see how all these different options are going to work for MS...
  10. Super Mario 3D All-Stars (It's a out now)

    I was thinking about pre ordering the physical copy, but that box and package look absolutely abysmal for a Mario collection, not a chance! I'll probably go digital, finally cash my two games for £84 voucher in on this and 3D World, as nothing else has tickled me for awhile on Switch. Or I blow the budget on the new Mario Kart which does look really cool!
  11. Monster Hunter World (PS4)

    Developer Diary is coming tomorrow, described as the "Final" one, so perhaps the last of the free content updates and big event Monsters, if the rumours are to be believed it'll be a big one to go out on...
  12. Gotham Knights (2021)

    @Julius @Cube I'm pretty sure they've said this is based in its own world, while the Suicide Squad game is based in the existing Arkham Universe, might be wrong on that though. Either way, this game appeals to me a lot more than the mentioned SS title, the trailer for that one just didn't really do much for me. I'm sure closer to the time and when we learn more about it I'll get excited but at the moment, this is the one I'm really looking forward to playing and getting back to the Batman Universe with!
  13. Gotham Knights (2021)

    I hope there might be some sort of link between this and the Suicide Squad game, I mean it makes sense in my head but perhaps it's too much wishful thinking. Either way I'm looking forward to a new Batman game, I've loved all the Arkham Games, even Origins and Knight, so I'll be interested to see if this game is just a continuation of that style from WB Montreal or something new and different...only a few days til we know!
  14. General Switch Discussion

    I just wish they'd show us something, to be honest! I've put my Switch on a handful of times since losing interest in Animal Crossing after about a month, and it's frustrating having nothing to look forward to properly. The only remake I'm particularly interested in is a Star Fox Zero one (yes I know, but I love a bit of Star Fox and I really enjoyed Zero personally) apart from that, I would love to see some new reasons to get hyped for my Switch and dusting it off. I'm thankful Nintendo are riding high again after the murky Wii U times, even though I really enjoyed the games that were being put out on that and personally had a great experience with it, but in the last year I've had very little reason to play my Switch and feel that Nintendo magic!
  15. Xbox Series S | X - 10th November

    If they don't have a specific game to push the new console they need to do something...I can smell another Game Pass deal coming on, get 6 months free with a Series X or something daft like but if they don't have Halo they can't launch the console with nothing to promote it. Brave decision to not enforce a crunch and the right decision as well from a human POV, still playing the consumer friendly angle at MS!
