Itís certainly on my one x as well as series x

And well worth paying for.
The way it positions accurately in my room is so impressive. Like the sound really did seem as if coming mid way between my front left and rear left speaker or from below / above

Need to try this then
I have some new heights relatively recently, tested with the Atmos app which is okay, but I haven't found a really great test

Sounds like what I'm looking for

This the one?

Yes I’ve seen this bug. If you leave and go into another building or get far enough away you will see an exclamation mark to indicate someone needs help to open it and you’ll be able to do it.

Just been playing with that. I couldn't work out why I was getting nothing from my height speakers... Then I realised...
I'm such a douche, DTS X is for making 5.1 or 7.1 sound like it has height
So, in theory I'm better off back with Atmos

Valhalla patch also available. Just tried it for 5 minutes & the minor tearing I was witnessing has gone. Also canít see any lessening of the visuals so far.

Iím not sure. I donít do any movie watching on the Xbox, but switched between atmos and dts for games and dts is much more spatial

Maybe too ďenhancedĒ for some. Like those old dsp modes you would get on the old Yamaha amps years back, but for games it really seems to work.

Much more noticeable height prescience and seemingly ďdepthĒ as well somehow

When playing cod, it did sound / feel like people approached from bottom of stairs etc

Don't. The save game fix for series X isn't included yet

Getting back to the game, Iíve now reached the ďfantasyĒ locations & the visuals are spectacular....
I still think Iím playing a different game / previous gen version to anyone else and not the series x version

It looks no better to me than when I played odyssey in 1080 on a one s
I know itís apples / oranges but the most recent tomb raider looks so much better

I genuinely did think maybe it had not downloaded the series x version so went as far as deleting and downloading again

also, is it just me, but are the image controls frozen out for anyone else?

Anyone else finding the day/night cycle on Valhalla way too short?

Yeah that's what I had to do in the end. Since the update it hasn't happened again.

Played some of the Dragon Quest XI demo. Oh my god I’m going to love this just as much as Dragon Quest VIII I think and I remember posting lots of impressions of that game back in the day. That game still ranks as one of my favourite games of all time and this one is just Dragon Quest through and through - traversing the world and the enemy types; it’s like visiting a game from a forgotten age only with modern visuals.

For a demo this is really generous, said to be about 10 hours of the game and you can import your save game into the full version so no reason to wait until next Friday. You can’t try out the 2D mode in the demo but the world looks great and the full orchestral soundtrack is really well done.

Too many games at the moment but I know how addictive Dragon Quest games are. For those who have Game Pass I think it is on there day one as well. Highly recommend.

Not sure I've ever played a dragon quest but it occupies the same spot as Final Fantasy in my head... Numbers that are too big for me ever to dive in

I had one the other day where I needed to get past a barred door to get in and loot the big chest. But one of my crew had already got in somehow and it was giving me the exclamation mark to go help him.

Dragon Quest games are surprisingly straightforward and offer quite simple gameplay compared to the complexities some Final Fantasy games can become.

Probably the only person that thinks this on here but I want the AC games to more like the older games but taking the best bits from the new games. origins and odyssey were horribly bloated games (that made you do side stuff to level up)

Iíve gone back to Odyssey after about a yearís break because I got bored. Iíve not done any side stuff, just want to get through the story so I can move on to Valhalla.

Not had an issue being underlevelled.

Would prefer it if levels were at a set level and didnít level up with you, but then I suppose itíd be too easy.

I miss the original ‘memory corridors’ from the first Assassin’s Creed. Reviewers seemed to hate them but the idea of this conversation when the target knew they were about to die was a really interesting one. This is when they were at their most honest about what they were trying to achieve and their beliefs. Although the memory corridors returned they were so short and meaningless, they really stripped away the purpose of them to begin with.
