    Xbox will continue to lose to Sony until they start actually investing in big budget first party titles.

    Xbox 1 was q huge disappointment because all it had was EA titles and Call of Duty, i.e. no good exclusives (Sea of Thieves aside).

    They bought up a load of developers, so hopefully that investment starts to show some return soon.

    Out on Game Pass in a couple of days. Looks great and it's from Justin Roiland so it's guaranteed to be good!

    High on Life turned out to be a dud but since then I've played and finished A Plague Tale: Requiem and As Dusk Falls, both very good story driven games. Highly recommend both.

    Played about an hour on High On Life and thought it was cack.

    I completed the original Plague Tale on PC about two years back, will go for the second one in the coming months. I saw it on Game Pass.

    I thought the gun play and enemy AI ruined High on Life. I enjoyed the juvenile humor and it did look quite nice but yeah, game play really felt like you were going through the motions.

    Plague Tale is great. Fun game play, 10/10 story and looks great as well. Some small graphical issues like it sometimes turning blurry? I read afterwards that you can turn chromatic abrasion off in the settings and that fixes it, so heads up on that. Was too late for me though. . :cry:

    Is Plague Tale that medieval zombie game?

    Medieval but not zombies. Rats. Set during the black plague.

    Yes, I know which one you are taking about now. There's another game called Blight, which must be the zombie one that I have also seen. It's a bit more MGS though.

    On the exclusives debate, most top PS games come to PC now. Been playing God of war, Horizon, Spiderman and Days gone on my Steam Deck. Miles Morales also out, with Last of us soon. OK a few years late but with so many games to play not a problem having to wait. They go dirt cheap as well unlike rip off PS prices.
    It's a bit easy but am enjoying the brainless fun, pretty funny game. I got bored of running from 1 bush to another in Plague, stealth games aren't for me. I'll check out As dusk falls.

    Some interesting games launching on Game Pass soon... Wo Long fallen dynasty, and Atomic Heart. Starfield has loads of hype.

    AOE2 and Goldeneye (yup, the original) are on game pass. Controller version not as bad as i expected for AOE2.

    Thought I woke up in 1998 when I turned the Xbox on this morning

    Annoyed that you cannot just buy Goldeneye, as I would happily pay full price for it. I don't want to pay for game pass, as sometimes I go months without any game times.

    There's no reason to be annoyed. You can get a year of game pass for about 25 quid, which would give you access to loads of quality games. Or complete the game in a month for a pound. Great value.

    Getting a PS5 tomorrow. Mainly because the first Horizon Zero Dawn was probably my favourite game of the last ten years and I'm deaparate to play the sequel. Getting the God Of War bundle on a chummy deal.

    iirc, you can play GoD 2018 free too before starting Ragnarok. assuming you haven't already played it. You can also get Horizon Forbidden West from Cd keys for about £35. Which is much cheaper than on the PS store, assuming it's not on sale.

    @Pagnell Have you bought Horizon Forbidden West yet? Might wanna hold off if not since heavy rumours are saying it’s coming to the PS+ catalogue on the 21st.

    Borrowed off a mate, but would be great if it did as I'd hand it back. Hopefully the save progress would be compatible between the physical copy and PS+ as I'm around 6 hours in.

    Saved data should be the same since it’s cloud based now iirc.

    It’s official now btw.

    Fantastic news. Also means I don't need to swap between Hogwarts Legacy and Forbidden West discs every time my son uses the console.

    Good to see Sony introducing relatively new AAA titles to PS+.
