Thankfully, I think most of the trailers were released afterwards in 4k. That steam wasn't doing some of the games many favours, compression artifacts all over the place.

Really enjoying Journey to the Savage planet.
Also a bonus as the kids are both enthralled by exploring the planet (for a bit anyway)

I'd probably never have played it if it wasn't for game pass either, was just planning a dip in to see what it was like but with hindsight I'd pay for it

Some background for those interested

sure the games will be fine but I agree there is nothing that is system seller. I think the problem is its all cross gen, made for the limits of current consoles (the ones from 2013) Yeah you will get nicer graphics, better frame rates and resolution on the X series

Don’t expect amazing gfx off the mark. Current gen is at its pinnacle and they’ve barely got going with next gen. On top of that we have to realise that the better things get the smaller the gap will be to the next level up.

It’s the things we won’t see that we’ll be the most important, the feel of a game underneath, the geometry and physics.

Till we get 120hz TVs we’re stuck with 4K 60fps, can’t wait till we have 1080p 120fps though.

pfffft 4k, its all about 8k now


Recently played Control on standard ps4 and didn't run well (heard the standard xbox one version is bad as well). An control 2 would be hamstrung that it has to run. good point about games needing better hardware for better geometry and physics

A game made for series X, would be the massive jump from this gen but this goes against the playable on last gen as well. While graphics are not everything, Ryse is a good example, blew away anything from 360 gen. Sometimes its nice to have a game that can't be done on last gen. Also graphics add to the experience like in a horror game, PT is great example

Current top spec PCs can’t do 8k now, next gen consoles won’t be able to but I’m hoping you knew that

Fractured Mind is on Game pass today, probably the easiest 1000 achievement points, only just second to Avatar. Literally took me 20 minutes to play through the whole game, it's more about the message than gameplay, it's extremely basic.

Minecraft Dungeons is out, had a quick go earlier and it seemed ok, was playing with my 6 year old who likes to just run off though.

Very riverbond with a few added touches.

Destroy All Humans isn’t a 360 games it’s an OG Xbox game, bit pointless seeing there is ANOTHER remaster coming

minecraft dungeons should be more like minecraft eg build stuff or destroying the landscape. Take away the graphics and its like any other game. As its on gamepass its worth a play, no doubt kids will love it
