Oh right, no. Is that what you mean by survival elements then?

The Xbox are doing their year in review and along the way, with all your stats, you collect pieces that go towards a snow globe. It's quite neat!

Celeste - Want
WRC 6- Do not want

Lara Croft - Already got
Far Cry 2 - Already got. Great if you like MALARIA. Otherwise the later ones in the series are probably betterer

I don't believe it is.

Super Bomber man R may be the way to go here. This is the one we played at the Cottage.

It runs really well on my modestly specced PC at 1080p. Syncs the game with the Xbox too. This is how gaming should work.

It’s great. Maybe a bit hard for kids though.

We finished this a four player co-op machine last night. It was admittedly on Beginner level, but we had great fun.

Super Bonberman R - Ace!
Bloodstained - I’d never heard of this but just from the box art I thought it was a pixel art Castlevania type game. I was right.
Assassins Creed - I reckon I’ve got all the Assassins creed games through games with gold and I’m yet to play a single one of them. Stop giving us them!
Star Wars - This is probably good. I’ve probably already got it. I probably won’t play it.

The Curse of the games with gold... You can sometimes tell when games are destined to be given away free, I never expected Bomberman however.

Why are XBox download speeds so bad? I've got Apex Legends downloading and it's all over the place, in a range from 'shit' to 'really shit'. Our internet is 100Mb/s and Steam will max this out no problem, but XBox can be anything from 5Mb/s to about 40-50Mb/s at the upper end. I've certainly never seen it max the connection out for any appreciable amount of time.

Mind you, Playstation downloads often aren't much better.

Wank!

I had to plug my PS4 in, as Battlefield complained about latency constantly on wireless.

Wired, I don't like wireless. Wireless is for girls and iPads.

Everything that's hard-wired is on gigabit Ethernet, which means speeds of 100MB/s+ on file copies and suchlike on the LAN, but of course the limiting factor for the internet is 100Mb/s down and 11Mb/s up.

Steam will merrily max it out on any PC in the house, the Battle.net client usually does, Origin will, etc etc. It's just XBox and Playstation downloads that tend to be a bit shit.

Steam sucks a rotten dick at feeding me downloads, weird. Doesn't even get close to a quarter of my downstream, which is only like 70Mb.

Huh, Steam hits 20MB for me. That's odd.

Steam goes like a train for me, but only in bursts. MAX OUT - trickle - MAX OUT - trickle etc...

Xbox usually holds steady at about 75% of my max speed (about 27meg, I need to go back to Virgin)

Just out of curiosity, I've just checked my current broadband speed and the tester reckons I'm at 15meg upload and FIVE MEG DOWNLOAD. I feel a conversation with BT is imminent.

Using a combination of Teamviewer, VPN and Parsec, I am able to play on my xbox from work.

The latency is pretty bad, but slower paced games are fine. Not that I'll ever get a chance to play anything, of course.
