I don’t think it’s the case at all. Watch the PS5 reveal. They were pretty positive about that show while I personally was pretty down on it. I didn’t come away from that showcase that the PS5 is something one should be buying this holiday season but maybe in 2021 or 2022 instead. The Ubisoft conference has nothing going on (seriously, how are you supposed to be excited for the same cookie cutter games) and the same for EA. I haven’t really been keeping up with the crew since lockdown as they put out so much content while I’m also keeping up with games, films, YouTube and other media all trying to keep my attention. I don’t come to GB for faux enthusiasm. That’s disingenuous to who they are and to what they stand for. I had zero interest in CoD. It’s been a series I’ve been done with for years but when pretty much everyone on staff was excited about the new one, it got me to take notice and it’s been a game I’ve played more than any other this year.
I was excited about Legion due to being set in London and as a Londoner, it’s nice to actually see some representation which feels long overdue for one of the worlds major cities. That said, I think it looks pretty bad and that CGI trailer before the gameplay stuff was so fucking cringe. I haven’t really played much in the way of Ubisoft since Mario + Rabbids but that felt so different from typical Ubisoft which all seem to be open-world games that don’t have the polish. I saw a clip from Legion where the player forced an npc’s bike to hurtle forward, crash and send them falling off but it was just so janky looking.
@tp0p: Spiderman is launch, R&C they didn't put a date on.
I'd say it was a better showing than the Inside Xbox showing (not that would take much) but I wasn't blown away either. So many of the games shown look like they're 2021 or beyond so what other than Spiderman is coming with the PS5 launch that's not third party?
I stream 99% of everything on the site but I don't have much time to watch things these days due to work and socialising so downloads really help with my commute, especially keeping up with Mass Alex. It'd be a shame if they ever got rid of downloads.
Due to Horizon's open world nature as opposed to Motorsport's being track based, I find the former a lot more difficult to wean myself off of certain assist. I don't really see myself turning off the driving line just because the course can go over all sorts of terrain and I find it quite difficult to really know where the game wants me to go. Heck, even with it on I've missed plenty of check points because I wasn't focusing on the line.
I only played it for a few rounds but it was rough. On the Xbox One S it's super blurry but also jaggy as fuck and the performance left a lot to be desired. Hopefully this test isn't going to be indicative of the full game release (but who are we kidding, these tests are usually the end result), but the game stuttered every few seconds making each move a guessing game.
London is such a huge city it's actually pretty hard what to suggest. I'd say you'd pretty much want to stick to zones 1-2 or if you have the time and opportunity, visit our lovely country sides. London offers a lot to do with the majority of museums and art galleries being free. I'd recommend the London Eye as it gives you a chance to see the city from above but you have to pay for that but there's always Sky Garden which is free but you just need to book in advance and October is pretty much low season for tourists until you get close to Halloween.
I've only been to Dublin once so I'm sure others that do live there can clue you in more but it felt like a very walkable city. I didn't feel like I was missing out by just walking around. Just be aware that you probably won't be able to do much until at least the afternoon if you're there on a Sunday.
