Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 surprise launches on Xbox Game Pass

ChiefGB

2 weeks ago

@Rpt81 just signed back up, canít see any gamepass rewards bar a course as usual. In fact the rewards seem considerably watered down then a few years ago. But then Xbox havenít really had much to shout about/sell for the last few years and I think thatís why I didnít bother extending it last time. But free is free after all so Iíll have a poke around about maybe get one of those light up pens or something 🤣🤣 just need to validate my account, do you still have to do this every year or so?

Life is Strange 2 coming to Xbox Game Pass this month

ChiefGB

@rep- lol whatís stale? The greatest line up of single format titles over the last 3-4 years, yes, very yawnsome lol, please. However itís hard to argue with how decent gamepass is turning out but then xbox needed to respond somehow, so itís buy up rights to their subscription service and grab any dev not nailed down. Throw enough shit at the walls and some will stick. It will be interesting how the next format will shape up though Iím still not interested in digital only, there will be no market if xbox dictate the price on their format alone.

This is all seriously ridiculous now, if I hadnít seen footage cast involved etc Iíd be worried it was an elaborate scam. Game looks ace but come on now is this all being mismanaged in same gross way? Are they just sitting back as the money keeps rolling in, someoneís getting rich all the while anyway.

At this rate half the cast will be dead before it releases.

Spider-Man Silver Lining DLC launches next week

ChiefGB

1 month ago

Dlc hasnít been all that so far really, first one was ok, second is combat heavy (weakest part of the game for me and over relied upon in the main game) this doesnít look much better or different. They needed to dial down the combat encounters in the main game and put more puzzles in the world. For example all the backpacks were just go here press triangle, why didnít they use environmental puzzles etc.
Nice game but overrated. Nowhere near ďgame of the yearĒ material as many bandied it as.

Battlefield 5 review - DICE's most entertaining shooter in years is also its most compromised

ChiefGB

2 months ago

Played a few hours of mp today. Canít say I agree with the absurd way ea have gone about launching this, but the game seems fine. Can be quite hard to see the enemy at times due to a muted palette which leads to some frustration early on. I bought the digital deluxe for £48 so I know I donít need to shell out anymore and I know it will get tighter and more content, so was happy to buy in now at the right price. Of course the removal of the season pass means a reduction in post release content as ea are tight but least we can all stick together with whatever comes out.

Digital will have been a massive amount for this one I reckon, coming on the back of the cod mega patch scenario plus the convienience of not needing to switch discs and the fact the special edition was the same price digital or physical. People would have wanted to get a game of this size locked down for launch (I know I did)

Are they doing all they humanly can to fuck this one up? Why stagger the delay so much, oh yeah because they have subs to flog. I mean ea access is actually a good deal but all this just leaves a bad taste.
The news of the br delay must have been hurtful on top of all the bad press this seems to have attracted since reveal. Personally Iíd rather play it than black ops, but not much good news has been coming recently.

Two Point Hospital review - pitch perfect retread that manages to improve on a classic

ChiefGB

I never played theme hospital as I didn't have a pc or a ps1, think I may have to rectify this. Thing is sometimes I like the idea of sim games more than I like the practicalities of actually playing them. I have so many games that I like to dip in and out of them. I get the feeling this kind of game won't necessarily fit with this?

No mention of whether there's a sandbox option in this, surely it's a given?
