    That's an uninspiring list.

    How long do I have to wait for halo 5 to come up in this? I'd like to see the 4k updates without having to shell out for it, or sign up for game pass.

    Anyone else tempted by Final Fantasy XV Royal edition in the sale?

    Worthy?

    Gah.

    Bought the Sea of Thieves S bundle last night as I'm looking forward to FH4 – I'd sold my OG One last October as it wasn't getting enough use.

    However. Do you think I've been able to play anything on it yet? Fuck me. A 1GB patch to complete the console set-up process which seemed to download at 20kbps, the quick-ish installation of No Mans Sky followed by its desire to download a 9GB update, the queuing of 50GB of FH3 – which had completed by the morning, but I ended up watching another loading screen as it continued installing…

    Gah and double-gah.

    Although what doesn't help is that my connection seems to have deteriorated from ~20Mbps down to ~5 over the last ten days…

    Check that isn't your Xbox being weird - as in, run a speedtest on your phone or laptop. I've seen my xbox drop to crappy rates when downloading a mass of stuff. Might just need a reboot/refresh of the MAC address. (Gawd knows why.)

    @TOOTR FF15 was great, I can't be bothered going back to do the DLC though.

    Probably not helpful.

    Naw, I logged into the router and it's also reporting a shit-awful speed. Have contacted Sky, but wonder if somebody else has reported something as I've seen an Openreach engineer fiddling outside.

    @askew When I got my new X1X at launch I re downloaded some of my games. Was a 700GB download. Took all night ;) First world problems.

    Got an engineer coming out to look next week. At £65 unless I extended my contract. No thanks. I suspect it will resolve itself over the next few days. Each time I've power-cycled the router it's reconnected a little quicker – as though it's in the training mode it goes through when established for the first time.

    Rebooted the sky hub. 35 down on the wired connection, which dropped to 20 when Mrs Hermit started streaming. Wireless coming in at around 20 down dropping to 15.

    Alright, I'm definitely dropping a couple euros on that Game Pass deal.

    The Doom demo didn't convince me enough to buy the full game, even if it's really cheap now, so being able to play it for a couple euros is more up my alley. And then I can play some other stuff too. Win-win.

    It's absolutely essential in my opinion. It only gets better as you become accustomed to the combat flow.

    Side note on the other topic: my internet is 1000 down, 200 up :p

    I've never really got why the announcement of consoles/accessories in new colours are such big news.

    Same for bundle announcements.

    @TOOTR I would, there's a lot of fun there for £16, even if you only complete the base game. Also, it is exceptionally pretty.

    Cheers. It's the prettiness. I was never a graphics whore (is that still a thing?) but I do love me some pretty.

    Gamepass is becoming a must have.

    Can only be a matter of time til Steam and PS start to emulate MS and the 'netflix' of gaming.

    And then one day Ninty will wake up and do it too :)

    I'm teetering on the brink of buying the criminal enterprise starter pack for GTA Online while it's on sale. You get the thing that means you can be a CEO, a few other expensive buildings, plus some vehicles and weapons I don't really care about.

    Can't quite decide if it's a justified shortcut to getting to the extra content without having to grind for cash, or a waste of money on stuff that's not much better than the stuff I'm doing in it now. Probably better to buy a shark card for the CEO thing and then earn cash that way, but the cards seem more... icky somehow

    It's definitely icky, but I did it just to mess around online with my nephew and it's definitely worth it for messing around with what the newer updates have to offer.
