    Outer worlds is good. It has its problems but it's great fun.

    I never played Fallout 4 or Fallout: New Vegas. Should I just skip FO4 and play NV instead? It's annoying that NV won't have the lovely FPS boost though. I could play Outer Worlds instead, I guess, for my FO-like RPG fix but I heard it's pish.
    NV is pretty funny. Probably the last decent Fallout. I'd skip 4.

    Is there a stock tracking site or app that also includes Spain? For the life of me, I havenít been able to find a Series X anywhere - checking everyday.

    I've been looking for an equivalent and the answer is no. I just got a Series S from the Spanish Microsoft Store instead as it's essentially impossible to get one in mainland Europe normally which is really weird.

    @JamboWayOh Yeh, the S is available on Amazon.es (has been for over a week) but no joy on an X.

    Out of curiosity, where in Spain are you?

    Do you get reward points for ordering from Microsoft?

    This. Also, I didnt like FO4 so much, even though you could just ignore the base building shit.

    NV is probably the last ok FO, Outer worlds is streamlined FO in spaaaace.

    Make of that what you will!


    Might get the Outer worlds dlc some time yet.

    Not in Spain, I'm in Andorra and you can't get either console here, but it's a tiny place so I get it's not of any importance for the sales machine. I think the ps5 list is in the hundreds at the big department store and we only had one Series S drop in January, never had any Series X stock and I'm apparently on a waiting list and they couldn't even say if getting one was a possibility. I just got a Series S with the intention of upgrading to an X later. I don't know if you get reward points, I hadn't really checked.

    For a next gen game Outriders doesn't look particularly stunning. Looks like Halo infinity circa 2019.

    Just tried The Falconeer via Game Pass. I'm very much up for Crimson Skies with giant birds, but why does the voice acting sound like the cast of Mrs Brown's Boys reading Warhammer Fantasy fanfiction?

    Yeah, it was the incessant talking that put me off too. I think I ranted about it earlier in this very thread.

    And?

    Outriders probably has a sliver of budget compared to those that you listed. But you are right it isnt a looker, but hey its on game pass and some of my favorite games from last year have been purely from game pass that didnt think to buy.

    Hopefully Outrider will be another to add to that list.

    So no mid-mission checkpoints in The Falconeer? At all?

    Think that's dropped.

    Yeah the budget probably isn't great but for an UE4 game it doesn't look particulary great I mean their last game Bulletstorm is still a good looking game on the old UE3

    Anybody know what the deal is with the Xbox Series X restock in the UK? The last I heard was that retailers would have stock today, the 26th March. Argos now allows me to add one to the trolley, but I can't actually pay for it as it shows as out of stock. Alternatively, GAME still has bundles for Pre-Order, but the pre-order date is 26/03/21, which is today. Does that not mean it should be available today?

    You need to download the hotstock app and the discord server for stock informer. I got an alert for stock for ebuyer today. If youíre serious about getting one thatís the way forward none of this hearing about stock stuff.

    Gah. To be honest, I'm not mega desperate. It'll happen when it happens. Just both sites have changed the visibility of the console, but stock still seems to be zero. I can hold out until the shortages disappear.

    Itís actually not that bad. Get the CtrlAltStock discord setup. I could have bought one about ten times last week.

    Theyíve been on amazon, Microsoft, Smyths and argos.

    Argos is so shit as you can't have one delivered even in 2021. No where near me had one this morning at 7.30am. Also my friend is getting on my nerves as big xbox cultist, keeps asking if I got a series x yet

    They were sold out at around 6:45, spent 20 minutes trying to get an X, added to trolley okay, but checkout Kelly crashing.

    Got an S this evening instead, it will do my needs.

    Remote play is pretty decent on this (on Android)

    Just been playing Jedi fallen order in bed with a dual shock 4 and clip for the phone, works brilliantly.

    Might give it a bash with Xcloud for comparisons sake, great to have these options!

    Wonder if Sony will ever bring PS Now to this standard. Would be nice to be able to subscribe for a month to play the exclusives through streaming without having to buy a PS5.

    Yeah it definitely needs mega WiFi signal. I've got the console cabled in (power line at least) and full signal on AC 5ghz WiFi for the phone so it's a near best-case (but not out of reach for most) setup.
