    I'm tempted by Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Someone stop me. It's on sale.

    Is the DLC any good? And it comes with Assassin's Creed 3 too. Also tempted by the Ezio Collection.

    I can play these games when I retire.

    @MrFlay I can't help you. Everyone I know that has played Odyssey won't stop raving about it.

    It's OK, I suppose. I enjoyed Origins more I think, while Odyssey is bigger and has more stuff going on I just can get past the frankly terrible character animation. Like God awful, as in the characters aren't tethered to the world. It really takes me out of the world.

    Don't listen to Jambo. Odyssey is proper great. If you love Ancient Greece it's even better.

    Don't even worry about the DLC. That might crop up 50 odd hours down the line.

    Origins is better by a long way, and fundamentally the same. The added character choice and dialogue options are largely pointless, the rest is just "more".

    The difference between Origins and Odyssey is basically down to which setting you prefer

    I like both of the settings, and bought Odyssey because of how much I liked Origins.

    Origins is leaner (and it's not lean by any stretch) and has less of the boring/irritating shit, like sailing, swimming and the Mercenaries (it has them but they're less intrusive).

    Odyssey is an even bigger, longer version, with even more systems layered over the top. The geography is more distinct in Origins too, despite half of the world being different coloured sandboxes. Odyssey feels like the same environment throughout (from what I've played so far - I'm not finished) just scaled up or down as needed. The cities and regions all felt more unique in Origins.

    Having a bit of a mooch at the games and have noticed that Titanfall 2: Ultimate Edition is £3.74.
    Haven't played it, believe the single player campaign is excellent so have snapped it up.
    Seems very cheap unless it's going to be a GWG next month.

    3.74 for TF2 is a crime. Respawn deserves full price for that game. Incredible!

    It is!
    I had to look and check it about 3 times in case as I thought it just had to be for a DLC pack or a set of armor with "LOLZ" or something written on it!
    Will give it a blast this week at some point.

    A while back my gold and game pass were running out, so I upgraded to ultimate (before Iíd heard about the cheap conversion trick). Both run out today... if I were to buy a lengthy gold subscription now, could I do the cheap upgrade to ultimate thing, or have I missed the boat having already been on ultimate once?

    Another vote for Titanfall 2 - the campaign is great fun and more than worth that asking price.

    It's the best online shooter this gen too.

    @smemma I think you might be able to, but you should probably wait for the Ultimate to expire first, because I think if you try to add one of the single subs (Gold, console GP or PC GP) while you already have Ultimate, it gets down-converted into a shorter amount of Ultimate.

    For instance, I had Ultimate until mid-December and recently got a 3 month GP PC code with a new CPU. When I redeemed it, it converted to two months of Ultimate, instead.

    There's a table here that should help (click on the FAQ question: "After I join Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, can I still redeem...").

    The £1 deal seems to still be live, going by that page, so I'd say best bet is to wait until Ult expires, then grab Gold, then do the upgrade.

    Has anyone else on beta dash had it revert back the current ďolder oneĒ a week or so ago.

    Yeah, bit longer than a week though. They did mention they were reverting, and put out another blog post just recently to detail the future plans. Let me see if I can find it.

    I can't get the page to load, but essentially they'll be sending out updates to three groups, iirc - one will keep the current dash, the other two will get a different variant of the new one.

    Ok, least itís not just at my end then as my Xbox wouldnít boot up properly several times the night before it changed back and I wondered if it had rolled itself back in some way. Did you have similar issues at the time also?

    @ChiefGB Sorry, only just seen this. Yeah, mine did the same. Fine since, though.
