    Always install the disc before downloading the update.

    This should be on the loading screen when you turn on your Xbox.

    They're the sensible option for those who don't wish to be ripped off with digital prices and want to make a bit of money back on a game after they've finished it.

    @SiroccoJetProp Sensible option is split the cost of digital and game share with a spouse/family member/friend once they come down in price, also never pre order.

    @StarchildHypocrethes I never had any problems with patches downloading during the install process. Done it with many games, never an issue. At most it was slower than usual. But 0% overnight is just ridiculous.

    What's the deal with Xcom 2? There's a base game for about 14 in the sale, a deluxe game for about 18, and then there's War of the Chosen. I thought that was a DLC, but it's 26? Also, has anyone tried this on the X1X?

    Very close to pulling the trigger on Halo Wars 2 and Ghost Recon. Some crazy-good prices for once!

    I don't know if you'd want to co-op with me, with my level of tactical nous :D

    Is OK. You can spam shit out and I can weave the Napoleonic web.*

    *read: spam units to key locations, panic as overrun, use all leader powers ineffectually, retreat, scrape through, repeat.

    Is Mass Effect Andromeda and Just Cause 3 any good? Does the X sort out the reported issues with JC3?

    The deluxe version includes 2 DLC packs that run alongside the main campaign introducing an extra unit and 3 mini bosses. Well worth the extra 4 considering they were originally 8 each. WoTC is a major expansion, some say as much as a new game again, which adds much more depth to the strategy layer, more enemies, more classes to use, more factions to deal with and 3 major bosses to go up against. This was originally 35 and I couldn't pull the trigger fast enough at 26 yesterday, especially as I watch a lot of Marbozir on YT so knew what I was getting for the money.

    As for the 1X version, I have tested this out and apart from load times pretty much being halved across the board, the game no longer has framerate issues or tearing in loading screens or cutscenes. Overall it generally runs much smoother during gameplay and when navigating the base, even when using the fixed zoomed out view. Really it's night & day compared to the vanilla Xbox One version, and just goes to show how much raw power can improve a badly optimised game...


    Here comes the science bit...

    Initial Load from cold
    Xbox S = 1m 26s
    Xbox X = 1m 06s

    Load Early Mission save
    Xbox S = 30s
    Xbox X = 14s

    Load Pre End Mission save
    Xbox S = 1m 22s
    Xbox X = 52s

    Quit mission to title screen
    Xbox S = 43s
    Xbox X = 16s

    Any more questions, just ask, but I think that's everything!

    Only just clocked the BF1 premium pass at 12 quid. That's a bit of bargain.

    Is anyone having problems with the media player app? I'm trying to play off my hard drive and I'm randomly getting messages saying the content could not be played. I've tried different USB ports and the HDD works fine on other devices. Only started to be a problem when I got the X!
