Completed rage 2, while the combat is sublime, the open world is the usual cookie cutter crap with no real effort put into. Make a massive map and just toss some repetitive objects. Also the trailer said it was this crazy OTT neon pink Apocalypse but its just the same old ****

worth playing if you like the doom combat and its quite cheap if you look about or ebay (got mine for Ł22 in total) Also crashed a few times, on standard xbox it looks rough in the jungle area and you fight enemies as the resolution drops

I'm currently playing through it (about two-thirds through the story) and still enjoying it. I agree the combat is fantastic and almost as perfect as the last DOOM game. I also love the look of the game & like the mix of garish neon/post-apocalypse grimness. Runs very smoothly on Xbox-X & despite the lack of HDR, it still impresses at times.
Too a lesser degree & also agree that the large, beautiful sandbox you get to play in, is littered with a mix of unoriginal, unchallenging content. Some of the larger Bandit camps provide some entertainment & challenge but it doesn't take long to encounter all it has to offer.
Also the story is very bland & poor & character conversations are dull. On the plus side, the actual story missions have been large & entertaining so far...

I’ve just played my first EVER game of PUBG (it was the mobile version but I’ve got no where else to talk about this) now I am no shooter nut and I can only assume I got VERY lucky but somehow I won. Winner winner and all that lot. I punched out someone who must have had some seriously good gear as after that they couldn’t kill me. Level 1 to level 7 in one game.

Should I be blowing my own trumpet or is this a regular thing?

I'm pretty sure I heard the mobile version starts you against bots.

Also I know we like to use big catch-all threads on this forum but there is a PUBG thread:

I did, I guess I was in the general games area and I’m now thinking it would be in online games, not somewhere I normally visit

As its on gamepass, thought I would try res evil 4 again, time has not been kind to the game First of all its lazy port (which is typical of capcom) but the aiming feels horrible sluggish now and feels weird when aiming like you can aim and leon will aim at something else like a little killiable spider

Borderlands 2 has aged well, the graphics are not bad for 2012 game (looking at 3, and you can see a massive difference in colour, gunplay and also movement

Borderlands 2 has aged well because they released a 4k update for the graphics (not that it really needed it). But Borderlands 2 is absolutely a huge amount of fun which is the best thing it has going for it, just working my way through true vault hunter mode with Gauge

Borderlands 3 will be a day 1 purchase for me

How is it single player? And how is it without playing Borderlands 1?

You don't need to play Borderlands 1 to enjoy Borderlands 2 as the story is standalone. The player characters from Borderlands become NPCs in Borderlands 2, but you don't need to have played through as them, they're all explained in Borderlands 2.

It is better in a group, but great fun to play as a single player, finding people to play with is hard these days, so my last playthrough was on my own and I had a lot of fun

I don't have a X, so its 1080p for me and looks good, no doubt its due to the cel shaded look to the game

If you have gamepass the "Handsome collection" (2 and the pre-sequel) is on there. the pre-sequel is not as not as good as 2.

2 on gamepass has all the DLC* and there is a lot of gameplay there. (edit: apart from the recent one, it might be still free?)

Thanks. Sounds like it might be worth playing when I'm done with tomb raider

The last boss for pre-sequel is ******** crap, infact the last section is trash. but i just discovered that as I reinstalled it to see what I left it on last playthrough. If you don't have the right weapons then you are a bit *******

I heard a rumour years ago, the game rushed out at the request of gearbox and 2k as it was 3rd party studio but what kind of prick designs a section like these. Maybe if you 4 good players with good weapons

The Pre-sequel is poorly thought of all around in the Borderlands community, nobody plays it. You are correct that it was rushed out by a third party

PSA: Forza 6 is being delisted next month, so download if you have Gold or gamepass ultimate

While this looks a bit janky, its closet to Breath of the wild that you can get to playing on xbox. Looks decent if at the right price

Have to say that Slay the Spire, a card/deck builder, turn-based dungeon crawler mash up, now available via Gamepass, is the most addictive “just one more go” game I’ve played on Xbox for ages. Got great reviews when on PC & I can see why. The visuals are basic but the strategy gets deep & rewarding very quickly...
