I suppose! I rarely put anything in this thread because I'll just wait to write it up in Finish 52 when I'm done, but for stuff I give up on it means that never gets any comments otherwise. There's probably another thread somewhere for this actually.

One of the reasons I've barely played games since I moved in 2015 is because we moved to a wee fishing village with internet that runs like treacle. Well, today BT have confirmed we're ready for FTTP with speeds of up 900Mbps 8)

Hopefully we'll be setup in a couple of weeks and we'll no longer have all of the fun sucked out of gaming by being killed by people who haven't even appeared on our screen yet!

To celebrate, we've ordered MW and it should arrive today so look out for us online on Jen's tag Thespacegiraffe. Might be a few days before we can play though; it took three days of constant downloading to install Warzone!

Warzone is so big because it contains the rest of the game, so you should be fine.

Send me Jen's Activision tag! :)

This might help: https://www.gottabemobile.com/modern-wa ... s-to-know/

@satsuma has done it already as I play with him and he’s on PS4. Maybe he has some advice.

I think it forces you through the Activision account stuff when you first login - but if your in the game main screen hit options then R1 twice to take you to the accounts page then the activision details are the 3rd line down

It tries to be too clever and make everything work with the activision account stuff only , but then you need to hit weird combinations of buttons to filter so it shows you other players and those buttons are not anywhere obvious (like where the cursor is) but are in one of the corners of the screen - it took me ages to work out some of the regiment stuff because its all hidden in a submenu somewhere

Yip :-(

I think i've only ever gone the other way (from a disc game to a download) but reading online it looks like yes its going to remove most of it - copy some old stuff from the disk which is way out of date and then redownload

If your lucky its only the base game so not the whole 100 gig , but if your unlucky it will be

Blood Bowl Two - it's blood bowl (a madly violent fight with a shade of American football) but considerably better than the last iteration. It is turn based sports strategy game, and I am rapidly learning the best tactic is to avoid risk. Some bits are annoying at first, like players just falling over because they ran to far and failed a dice roll, or being unable to pick up the ball for the same reason, but then one begins to enjoy the pratfalls and the referee running into the field to knock your player out just because. Plenty of teams, commentary is quite amusing, and graphics are ok. Worth £6.

I'm playing Gears of War 5 with a friend at the moment and it's great. The fighting is proper meaty and the graphics are a joy to behold.

For a princely sum of $40 (that's roughly a crate [or 'slab' as they call it here] of 12 cheap bottles of shandy) I downloaded a few games to keep me busy. Ghostbusters remastered, Guacamelee 2, Octodad and Everybody's gone to the rapture. Should keep me busy for a while.

I started with Guacamelee 2 as I haven't had much platforming fun for a while. Wow, it's a stylish and fun presentation and the first hour or so of gameplay felt pretty neat. It seems like a lot of the theme and the humour is done in an affectionate way but I'm not sure if it might actually be a bit offensive to some Mexicans... that won't stop me from enjoying it but did give me just a little pause. I'm looking forward to playing some more of this.

I adored the coop split screen in Gears 1 and 2. Are you playing coop through the campaign or just playing online multiplayer? Is it still an Xbox exclusive?

I'm playing online multiplayer through the campaign and yes, it's an Xbox exclusive although you may be able to get it on PC? Not sure on that.

There are no Xbox One exclusives anymore. You can get them all on PC through the Xbox app.

Gears is published by Microsoft, so not on PS4.

Elite Dangerous for a bit last night. Currently mainly using a python shop, and have been running missions for The Empire to get bits and bats to modify my jump drive so I can go further and therefore make my trading more efficient. Considering removing my shields for extra cargo space, The ship is already mad slow and poor to move about, but I am working out the range. I got promoted to "Knight" recently, so a few more missions and I can get a faction ship to look cooler. Confirmed space pew pew kills is one.

Once you get it installed, join the regiment that's on here too. Easy to see if people are online and the happy hour gives you bonus XP

Well, Ghostbusters isn't great - the core mechanic of running around bumping into things, then shooting a sponge of a ghost for ages by holding down R2 until the ghost is weak enough to let you hold down R2 for even longer to try and grapple the ghost into the trap, isn't that much fun.

I have no idea why I’m enjoying Star Wars: Republic Commando (OG Xbox) so much. Blurry, fiddly shooting, annoying AI fuckers, jump on Y button, ADS on R3 but I’m enjoying myself. Pew pew.

I played it recently and also enjoyed it. Then got to a timed mission that I couldn't get done quick enough after about 10 tries so gave up.

I'm currently plaing heat signature, whcih as I've already put on finish 52 (Sept 2017, fact fans), I can't again.

Lots of stuff has been added to it since I last played it. It's still excellent.
