Its nothing out of the ordinary in size, its about 100GB. Remember it streams most of its data as you're playing it. Having a really fast stable internet connection is vital.

100GB still takes a bloody long time to download on the console, regardless of the internet connection. Microsoft isn't as bad as Sony, but I never anywhere near my full internet speeds downloading games from thier stores. 100GB is still pretty big anyway for the Series S's measly 364GB SSD.

Regardless I'm looking forward to have giving it a go. Some of the videos I've seen from the PC version look so good.

Anything good yet, feels like it's been downhill since Elden Ring.
personaly not impressed even by Elden Ring...

The Xbox show was great. Outer Worlds 2, Psychonauts 2, Flight Simulator, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and nearly all the indie titles looked great.
Happy to see 12 minutes and Hades coming to Gamepass.

LAD coming to Gamepass is also a treat.

The only thing that worried me was the fact that they didn't show any Halo Singleplayer gameplay. Still not convinced that's gonna be good.

Tomorrow the Direct. Very much looking forward to that.

You'll love it. Its very playable with an Xbox controller but if you really find you're enjoying it I recommend investing in a HOTAS. There's a few for the sim which are compatible with the Xbox.

They've really worked wonders recoding the sim with DX12 optimising it for better multicore processing. That trailer they showed was captured on the Xbox in 4K at 60FPS. Currently my RTX3080
won't even achieve that. Though that will change when the new version gets released alongside the Xbox version. I'm hoping to get in on the closed beta test starting next week.

Not being funny but if you play on Xbox your a paedo?

Hopefully gonna get XSX to play Flight Sim and crash into my dad's flat.

Really want something good to happen.

Mostly been a bag of wank. So many publishers and brands doing showcases and appearing in the showcases of others, with the cumulative effect that everything gets diminished and feels slightly less exciting, slightly more like filler. "Did that Indie game look like those other Indie games, or was it just shown at three different events?"  I suppose that's just the era we live in now: staggered reveals, leaks, dedicated events leading up to a game's release, every publisher wanting a piece of the pie. But you feel like something's always being held back for next time.

Highlights so far have been Xbox and Devolver Digital - the latter of which are still putting on very "Marmite" showcases, but do at least feel like they've earned their place with the bigger boys, and can back it up with some of the best looking indie games on the market. Trying not to get too carried away for Nintendo tomorrow, but if Zelda doesn't get shown I'm slitting my throat.

I'd honestly recommend heading back to check out the Day of the Devs showcase by DoubleFine. It was a really well-curated set of upcoming indies, most of which I hadn't heard of before but which looked delightful. It aired just after the SGF opener so when everyone was still rushing to watch 4K Elden Ring on Youtube, but yeah, go check a look.

Not even sure why Capcom bothered with a showcase there.

As in writing articles etc about the game, or writing for the game?

Utter Shit

Writing for the game itself. Nothing particularly creative - just info on the various genera, formations etc.

It's got allllll the versions and all.

That was alright, considering we've another year lost to COVID.

Dread: bought
Warioware: bought
Advance Wars: bought
Monkey Balls: bought
Cruisin' fucking Unicorns: bought
All the Cave shooters: bought

That'll do.

They showed loads of Metroid Dread after the main stream thing. It looks disappointingly similar to the Metroid II remake (same dev team), a game I enjoyed but found completely forgettable. Here's hoping it turns out as ace as its name promises though.
