That would put me off too. If you get past that you find save points all over the a place in the main game.

May give it another try then. It wouldn’t be so bad if you could skip the tutorial cut scene right at the beginning and get right into the proper action.

You can player Nier on easy (and its very easy) and the turret shoots for you but you change the difficulty on the fly if you want

Played through Marvel vs Capcom infinite on gamepass, glad I didn't buy it, its really poor. Also capcom can do one over the skin and new character prices, talking about milking the fanbase

Thanks, might try that just until I reach the first save and then up the difficulty after that.

Game pass is such exceptional value.

Moving Out is awesome ( and on Games Pass ). Similar local co-op style gameplay to Overcooked

from Geoff "Doritos" keighley on his reddit AMA

Did you see The Game Festival on Steam last December or around GDC? There will be another one in June with games. And Xbox will also be doing a playable festival. More platforms to be announced. You can download and play from home!

I miss demos and trials for games this gen (its still laughable how biased people in the game industry crap on the idea as they get playable or try demos before gamers)

Yeah, I never really stopped to think about it but having the first hour of a game would likely help sell a lot of titles that wouldn't otherwise get seen.

The likes of Stadia, xCloud and GeForce Now must surely be the demo platforms of the future? No-one wants to download 100GB just to try a new game.

yes, although demos can be a couple of gig and upwards

it would be nice to stream a trial of the game, although some companies don't want yo to try the game before you buy

That was a novel approach from Assassin's Creed Valhalla.

A "gameplay reveal" that didn't contain any gameplay.

I'm not an Xbox owner but I tuned in to see what the next MS machine is capable of.

Yeah, it was all very impressive but calling most of that a gameplay reveal was hugely misleading and I'm sure it has gained a lot of negative feedback.

The only two points that have really stuck with my is the Madden 21 game which in the end just revealed eight seconds worth of footage!

What really stuck with me though is Scorn. As an Alien fan, this looked utterly amazing! It turns out that this game has been in development on the PC since around 2014. You can find plenty of videos playing the first twenty minutes or so. You can also see the visual upgrade the Xbox Series X version will get compared to those earlier videos.

Yeah, I found it lackluster overall. And the AC gameplay trailer was bs
Huge fan of what ms are doing at the moment with gamepads etc and a huge AC fan but overall it all felt a bit flat to me

I guess it's difficult to really show off new tech when most people are watching in 1080p and missing a lot of what's trying to be shown
