@KilloWertz well I got a good chunck of the map discovered last night (at 165% atm with 97% on the normal castle) and I am missing one of Vlad's parts só me Guess I will finish it afterall (or at least will give it one or two sittings more)

Started Tiny Tina's Assault On Dragonkeep today and I am having alot of fun with it. It's easy to see why so many people say this was the best DLC for Borderlands 2. I am playing the stand alone version as I don't have a character high enough to play it with Borderlands 2.

I am playing it with my son and we are doing a Kreig/Maya team where I am doing a healer Maya build and it's working really well. We got some decent gear including the Magic Missel grenade mod and we just hit level ten.

One thing I will say with the standalone version is if you never played Borderlands 2 and are remotely Interested in the story do not get the stand alone version of Tiny Tina's because it contains alot of.spoilers which obviously should because it was the last DLC released for BL2 so it makes sense. However if you have no interest in BL2 story or like me played BL2 in the past but never got hight enough level for Tiny Tina's DLC then this is a great way to experience it.

Can't wait for the new one next year.

@Tasuki I've never really been into Borderlands, but the trailer(s) (don't remember if there's more than one) for Tiny Tina's Wonderlands intrigued me enough that I want to play that when it comes out. Now that they released Assault on Dragon Keep by itself, I want to try that sometime soon as well. I'm not worried about being spoiled since I have no plans on playing any of the regular Borderlands games.

@KilloWertz Just keep in mind that Assault on Dragon Keep plays like BL2 while Wonderlands is its own thing.

Finished Symphony of the night and moving on to the outer worlds. So far not a big fan of the gunning mechanics (as I am pretty terrible on a controller I like my shooters to have some auto aim on consoles) but the narrative is interesting for sure. Meanwhile will also start Dante's inferno as part of the monthly play here on Pure Xbox

I tried Haven last evening. It was somewhat intriguing but I don't know if it's worth paying the price now that it has left Game Pass. The love story and the graphics are fine but the hovering gameplay didn't convince me, not as smooth and fun as I expected but I only played a little while. Has anybody beaten the game?

@BlueOcean i finished it almost a year ago. It was a good game but no one i would pay for. I'm a cheapo Philipo so I really wouldn't have played most of the games I've played if i had to buy them outright so not sure if that's helpful. I liked the story a lot and the tunes. The game will basically be all about gravity boot hovering for your travel so if you didn't like it that's likely the deal breaker for you

I finished off call of the sea last night so now I'm focusing on finishing Halo Wars 1 and 2 before i allow myself to start infinite campaign. Some infinite multiplayer and likely FH5 will be played in between however.

@Krzzystuff Thank you, it was helpful, indeed. What I saw of the world was a bit meh, too.

I can finally write here now that Microsoft has added Cloud Gaming to Xbox One and the games are the Series X/S versions.

So I've played a bit of Forza Horizon 5 and Marvel's Avengers and both games are absolutely phenomenal. There's basically no lag at all and the gameplay feels very smooth. I'm playing both in performance mode because I assume that playing them in higher resolution will cause more issues for the streaming. Plus I prefer performance over resolution anyway. But yeah, I've missed playing the Horizon games and I'm genuinely impressed by how good Avengers is. Can't wait to play more of these and possibly other titles as well.

KilloWertz

@LtSarge You actually like Marvel's Avengers. Might as well just block me all over again. You're dead to me...

Best I've heard about that is the campaign is decent, but that's about it. It's free, so I can't criticize too much, and I have yet to try it out myself. So, in the end, I guess I'll just say it's good that you are getting more out of it than most people.

Played a few more hours of Assault on Dragon Keep tonight I am still really enjoying this game, in fact it has me wanting to start up Borderlands 3 once I finish this.

Anyway reached level 15 today and finished off the Dwarven mines. Not quite sure how much I have left but I feel that I don't have too much more to do.

@KilloWertz Yeah I mean, I would've never actually paid for the game since it's online only and I've heard other bad stuff about it e.g. you have to grind a lot and so on. But I've been playing through the campaign and it's awesome. At first I was going to complain that they should've marketed the game differently as you're clearly not playing as the Avengers all the time. You're just playing as this random girl. But then I realised that this random girl is apparently Ms. Marvel, a superhero in the Marvel universe, lol. So now it makes a lot more sense and I take that all back. It's a great game but I'm still glad that I'm playing it through Game Pass, it's definitely worth checking out.

So I've been playing Halo Infinite for a few hours now and so far it's an incredibly fun game that feels significantly different than previous Halo titles. It's going to be hard to go back to the previous games now without having things like the grappling hook. That thing makes a huge difference, it opens up so much freedom when fighting enemies or just traversal in general. I'm also finding the story to be very interesting and it appeals a lot to me as a person who's played all the mainline games.

It definitely feels like Halo has finally become a modern franchise now with this entry. Can't wait to play more of it!

I also started Halo yesterday. I've only played a bit and have just reached the the very first part of the Halo ring. It seems very much like Halo of old but with added niceness and the grapple is a good thing. I'm playing on normal and I must be a bit rusty as I'm getting killed more often than would be ideal.

I fired this year briefly last night. Made it past the first section. As someone who has only played bits of Halo 1-3 via the Master Chief collection on Gamepass, this feels and plays far better than those older titles. It's not quite Doom Eternal either control wise or visually but it's close.

I'm surprised at how well this runs on Series S. A buttery smooth 60fps. I never noticed any dips in the framerate. Digital Foundry say both modes on the S are capped at 1080p which was also surprising as the S is capable of running harder than that. Hopefully 343 will release an update to lift the resolution.

As it stands it looked pretty sharp on my 4K panel.

Dark mode or go home.

Just finished up Halo Wars last night and i started up Halo Wars 2. Im so close to finishing up all the pre Infinite titles that i decided to stay the course and hold off on Infinite for one last game. Halo Wars 2 is supposed to be the closest relation to the infinite story would be odd to skip this one.

@Krzzystuff Nice one! I still haven't played the Halo Wars games but I plan on doing it eventually. I'm just not that big on RTS games. Would you say that the first HW is pretty accessible for newcomers to the genre or is there a steep learning curve?

LtSarge

Krzzystuff

@LtSarge they are very accessible. It's not like StarCraft or old school command and conquer. And it handled comfortably on a controller as well. Highly recommended giving them a go at some point, I'm still very early into 2 but they got me with the story and cutscenes already. Atriox is a great villian
