    Just a quick heads up that you can get three months of Discord Nitro if you're on GP Ultimate. You might not care about that, but I just redeemed that offer, logged into Discord, and they gave me three months of GP as thanks for subbing to Nitro :D

    They give you the choice of 3mo console or 3mo PC, but if you have Ult already, that gets downconverted to 2mo of Ult.
    I would love to take you up on that ki d sir but I dont know what a discord or discord nitro is.

    Text and voice chat. Nitro is just their paid sub.

    I think I saw the Nitro offer on the Xbox dashboard, but I'm sure you can probably find it with a search online.

    That sounds good as I am in no mood to die over and over again for 200 hours.

    Need a slightly less demanding game.

    Great shout. Iím absolutely loving this. The 3 player coop works really well.

    Is there an option to turn friendly fire off?

    I don't think there is any way of claiming the free Discord Nitro offer without access to an Xbox One, at least I can't find it. There's nothing in the PC app.

    Rage 2 is rather good so far, looks stunning.. Freezes in the menus quite often though.

    Yeah I'm enjoying Rage 2. The aiming felt a bit weird after playing Borderlands, very snappy compared to Borderlands smoothness.

    The graphics in Rage are impressive. Can't believe it's 1080p in fact because it looks so sharp.

    Rather annoyingly I am playing rage on PC and Far Cry New Dawn on Xbox. They are the same game.

    Another one enjoying Rage 2 so far, although I got stung by the rather poor autosave and lost a couple of hours progress last night. Must remember to save manually more often!

    Subnautica has no autosave at all... I lost over an hour's progress the first time I quit and had to start all over again. Crazy exclusion in this day and age.

    I'm still absolutely loving it though. One of those games where you can think "I'll just log in for a quick session, maybe go and explore that new thing in my quest log" and then 5 hours later you've opened up three new crafting pathways, set up a forward base, sorted your entire inventory into labelled cupboards and completely forgotten about the quest.

    I enjoyed the start of Subnautica, but kinda lost may way after a while and just swam out to some wreck in the distance, but without enough provisions to make it back. I might have to start again and give it another go.

    My turn to start Rage today I think, Star Wars and Outer Worlds are not as good as I was hoping, at least not yet. I don't think I have started so many news games inside of about 2 weeks (BL3 on ps4 start of last week as well) EVER!

    @DUFFMAN5 I find Iím that way lately, too. Got bored after chapter 3 on Gears 5, stopped after the second planet in Outer Worlds and fired up Remnant last night for a few hours. Who knows whatís next.

    I'm gonna add Rage 2 to the list of games that run like crap on my computer. I'm starting to notice a trend.

    Maybe I'll play it on console instead, but what little I tried didn't seem too good. Everybody praised the gunplay, but it seemed stiff and unwieldy to me.

    @Malek86 Are you still running that RTX480?
    The gunplay is up there with Destiny and Doom for me its razor quick and loads of head popping feedback. Plus i'm only using a pad.
    It's Mad Max in fps (with poorer driving) but i'm enjoying it.

    Ryzen 5 1500X and RX480, yep. But processor usage was very low, as expected of a Vulkan game, so it is definitely a GPU problem.

    I'm reading some benchmarks on the internet, and it seems this is a heavy engine that doesn't gain much performance even on low settings. It kept 60fps well enough when I set it to Low and used dynamic resolution, I guess, but it also seemed kinda buggy... I'll try on Xbox One anyway. Maybe it will be better with a pad.

    @CrispyXUKTurbo what are your settings? I know it doesn't help that I was running at 2560x1080. On the plus side, this game has some real good upscaling. At 75% rendering resolution it still looks pretty sharp. What a difference from Gears 5, which got blurry even at 90% resolution.

    In the end, with a lower rendering res and with low-medium settings, it seems to play well enough. It occasionally drops, but not noticeably so. There are still issues though. The dynamic res doesn't seem to actually work (I had to set it to be upscaled at all times), some subtitles are missing, alt-tabbing makes the game crash, changing vsync options made my game stuck at 30fps... and someone should tell them that iron sights need to deactivate when I reload.

    I had bought Rage2 on the cheap via eBay and quite enjoyed 15 hours or so. Love some of the open world but I did start to feel the repetition. Some of the bigger bandit camps are good fun and the gunplay is great, though, as many have said, I just stuck with the machine gun as it feels great.

    Made me want a full HDR update to Mad Max actually.

    @Rusty_M I think it's that you get extra Game Pass.

    So, just started Rage 2 on Gamepass (PC). It's nice and all, but I can't shake the feeling it's Mad Max in a different setting. Actually, not that different. Some textures look familiar, like they were re-used or something. Also there is this strange micro-stutter as I move around places, not that it bothers me too much. Might be my laptop.
    Don't mean to spoil others' enjoynment - it's a great game overall.
    A 7/10 great, that is.

    Rage 2, what a steaming pile of shit. Controls like ass due to the aim acceleration on the controller as well. Dull world and dull gameplay digging about looking for supply crates.

    3/10 and doubt I will bother going back to it.

    Just started Shadow of War a couple days ago. I haven't even played any of the quests past the tutorial yet, I just spent some hours going around killing captains for funsies.

    I thought it would be similar to Shadow of Mordor, and I guess it is, but it also has a different feel overall. Now, SoM bored me after around 15 hours so I just rushed through the story. We'll see if this is any better.

    The nemesis system is better in the second game but I thought the first was the better experience
