  1. 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!
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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
  6. Gears 5

    I watched the last trailer that was released for this, but I've kept a distance apart from that as I want to be fairly fresh going into it after getting hyped for 4 and feeling abit disappointed by it; encouraging reading some of those snippets though and as much as I love the Gears style gameplay, I'm glad to hear they are mixing it up abit! Roll on Friday, still can't believe I'm getting it launch day for nothing 😎
  7. Xbox One Console Discussion

    I'd say you've over faced yourself, but I'm sure you'll manage to squeeze it all in some how, Dr Strange... 😉
  8. Xbox One Console Discussion

    Thought I saw you on my friends list last night @Hero-of-Time! Game pass is such great value, especially with that £1 deal for 12 months I blagged, the downside as always is the installation process... Really in the Gears mood now but I'm not touching the others so 5 is fresh next week... you've got a week to get through all previous entries...
  9. Gears 5

    Yeah I agree, I think if it wasn't on Game Pass I'd have some doubts about getting it at launch as I'm not completely sold on it (in fact Gears 4 was a bit of a disappointment) however like you I do love Gears so I'm sure I'll be excited to actually dive back into it and make myself a promise that I'll spend ages on multiplayer this time too and get really good at it...only to barely touch it 🙈 saying that some of the new modes sound like they could be fun!
  10. Your 2019 Gaming Diary

    I feel like I should maybe have another go at some point just to see but it was certainly very strange, no idea if it had anything to do with the age of the game, but I think it was the camera and how it was jerking around Leon. I had Arkham Origins in the pipeline as well so I may just crack on with that before Gears 5 hits in a few weeks!
  11. Your 2019 Gaming Diary

    I completed Ori and The Blind Forest this week on my Xbox, an absolutely incredible game that deserves a go (and is already very old but holds up well) hopefully Switch only gamers will jump at the chance to play it and enjoy it as much as I have. I planned on tackling Resident Evil 4 after, again on my Xbox as it's free on Game Pass; I fired it up but it literally made me sick to play, as in the motion of the controls messed with my head so much I was sick, which I've never experienced before with a game, and certainly not when I played it originally on the Game Cube and again on the Wii. Any one else have this with the HD remake of Resi 4, or did the jump from 2D to 3D set something off in my head?!
  12. Indie World Presentation on 19/08/19

    I've actually been playing through Ori over the last few weeks thanks to my game pass deal on the One; it's an absolutely incredible game as far as I'm concerned, the closest I've played to an actual Metroid game since...I last played a Metroid game. Well worth a purchase for anyone into that sort of game, or even if you aren't, it's such a beautiful game and an engaging little story as well, excited for it coming to the Switch even if I won't likely double dip!
  13. Dr. Mario World (Mobile) — Coming Summer 2019

    Couldn't disagree more; I can't say I've felt the effect of my goomba or koopa assistant too much, I've got past level 50 now and I've had to replay a few levels here and there but nothing too chaotic. I've never played a game where I've noticed how my "performance" drops depending on how tired or switched on I am. Last week managed to get from versus mode points of 200 up to almost 600 in one sitting, it was like the matrix, and now I'm back down to 400 odd after trying to plough on when I just wasn't seeing it. Haven't spent any money on this and I absolutely will not either, but it's probably the most fun I've had with any mobile game, really enjoy it!
  14. Xbox One Console Discussion

    Yeah apparently was put in in the anniversary update ... hoping to get on it tomorrow morning, if I do I'll let you know!
  15. Xbox One Console Discussion

    , Traded some bits and bobs in for a years live subscription for £12, signed up for ultimate for £1... nothing to pay again until September 2020! Almost seems too good to be true... At least that's Gears 5 sorted, Monster Hunter World is downloading so I can crack on from HR12, Wolfenstein II, and the single player from Sea of Thieves to keep me occupied as well!
  16. Xbox One Console Discussion

    I've seen a few people online talking about this, I might just get involved and buy another years on CD Keys or trade some bits in at Game for a code and do this, I'll want to play Gears 5 when it comes out at least 😎
  17. Nintendo at E3 2019

    Super Lucky is a really, really enjoyable little game, a great addition to the Switch lineup! Not sure I'll pick it up again myself as I had it finished over two or three days and towards the end my enjoyment came from achievement hunting, if they add in an in game achievement system I'd be quite tempted mind...
  18. Nintendo at E3 2019

    After what's been a pretty poor E3, that completely stole the show, mainly for the way they just went at it game after game after game with minimal nonsense (sure I had a nightmare I watched 20 minutes of Watch Dogs Legion gameplay at the start of the Ubi show last night...) Loved the Banjo reveal and the BOTW sequel teaser too. It's great to see publishers getting involved and starting to realise that the Switch is the biggest console in pretty much all territories now...and delicious that EA are no where to be seen 😎😂
  19. Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate

    Think I'm going to have to rain check tonight; a bit of food poisoning has become a massive head ache and temperature!
  20. Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate

    I could always bring terrible Smash abilities to the table if everyone is playing that tonight
  21. Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate

    Anyone online tonight @Hero-of-Time @RedShell @Glen-i @S.C.G Off sick from work today, so could be on earlyish til late 👍
  22. Fine. Super Mario Advance 2, then... If I really can't have Mario Advance, I'll plop Wario Ware in there instead
  23. Super Mario Advance ( Super Mario Bros 2, I know...) Mario Kart Super Circuit F Zero Maximum Velocity Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga Metroid Fusion Done and done!
  24. Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate

    I thoroughly enjoy the mundanity of my repertoire... Truth be told I haven't even looked at them, or even know how to come out with them, and here I am almost maxing out my Ahtal set!
  25. Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate

    Thanks for the hunts tonight chaps; got three of the five hyper hunter VI tickets I needed, and now all three sets of armour maxed out, two more then I can focus on the weapon upgrades too, alot more Ahtal fights on the cards I think...
