No one else played the medium yet? I’m loving it, missed these type of games and it’s a great one for Microsoft to have as an exclusive.

Yeah I'm playing it. It's different and has a interesting story. Looks good. I'm enjoying it but only downfall is it's a bit of a grind type game. I wouldn't say it's a scary game though. Creepy yes but haven't had any jump scares and I'm half way through it.

I'm a few hours into Medium and quite enjoying it. I love the psychological horror genre but have always been a massive wuss when it comes to playing horror games so I decided to force my way through this one. Not as bad as I was expecting. Definitely creeping. Had the one jump scare early'ish (won't say where obviously but for those who have played it you know when you get the knife) but I'm liking the overall vibe. I wish it were a little more interactive with the items and stuff though as everything is pretty obvious with what to do.

Looks great. I’m a wuss so it might be a YouTube play through watch for me. Just like the new Resident Evil game lol

I was going to force myself through the new RE but I thought I'd at least youtube the demo first. NOPE lol. Medium is really good so far though, not as bad as I had thought it would be.

Before receiving the XSX I remember people mentioned storage issues.

Having the console for 3 weeks now I have over 20 games installed and still plenty of GB left.

From fallen order, control and medium and small indie games like ori with a couple of 360 games like banjo.

If I need space I'll delete games I don't play to make room but currently the storage in the XSX is more than enough.

Completed fallen order today, I must say I really enjoyed it. The end was intense!

I didn't want to play any other game while still playing fallen order. No idea what game next.... I tried sea of thiefs, I want to love it but got bored early on.

SOT is amazing but you definitely need to play with at least a couple friends.

Have you played Control?

Tried medium for 45min, that pace of game just doesn't do it for me.
Gave destiny 2 a shot, really like the graphics and game play but no idea what I'm doing in the story line.

Unfortunately I have no friends online I really like the graphics of SOT so I want to love it.

Just finished control. I didnt LOVE it as much as I thought. I had 2 main issues:
  • I found the old house just boring with no visual variety. Just drab endless hallways
  • I wasnt a huge fan of the "mysterious" nature of the mainline. It was almost like it was "stingy" with story progression and kinda put me off with the entire narrative entirely. I dont mind complex stories but i shouldnt have to look at collectables to figure out what the hell is going on.
I know Quantum Break had worse reviews than control but i had a better time with than this. QB had varied environments from the university to city outskirts to company's building and I could at least follow the story.

It was still worth playing ofc coz the combat was pretty nice.

Assuming you've tried ori, Halo MCC and Gears 5?
For some Series X enhanced titles:

Call of the Sea- puzzle-adventure game
The Falconeer- flying action game where you control giant falcons

Others:
A Plague Tale- action stealth with a wonderful story
What Remains of Edith Finch- emotional tale about a girl that finds out how her family dies. Its only about 2 or so hours long but has a total top tier gameplay mechanic (dont wont to spoil!!) so must play
Titanfall 2- one of the best fps experiences around

HirdyLannister I played through What Remains of Edith Finch all in one setting and I think that's the best way to experience it imo. If you spare a Friday or Saturday night without distractions I'm sure you won't be disappointed. 👍

My Xbox One controller rechargeable battery is on the way out. I can't justify buying an Elite controller - but I am thinking of an upgrade to the Xbox Series X controller. Reviews online are a bit all over the shop as to whether the XSX controller is an improvement over the XBO controller.

Any thoughts from those who have had both? I mostly play PC.

I’ve got an Elite so I’ve hardly used the Series X controller. Just seems silly to buy a last gen controller.

I'm still sitting on an X Series X to scalp

It's hard to gauge the best time

1k is a given but can I extract more 🤔

You're not missing much. I've returned 3 series x controllers thus far (stuck right trigger, b/y buttons etc). There's also a fiemware patch coming doon (hopefully) as the controller can lose sync and the only way to get it back to normal is to reboot the console. I'm using the controller for pc and original xbo.

Funny thing is next gen provides nothing, but I can sell 25 consoles for profit.

People are strange
