Assassin’s Creed Valhalla? Which is cross-gen and also on PlayStation 5. The best launch line-up was probably still the PlayStation 1 with classics WipEout and Ridge Racer, while the biggest for PlayStation 2 was SSX and Tekken Tag Tournament. Knack and Killzone: Shadow Fall were among Sony’s five most anticipated next gen launches. Notably, the Xbox Launch Line-Up is pretty bad. So bad I’m not even sure it can be said to have one.
Sackboy: A Big Adventure, Destruction AllStars, and Astro’s Playroom for the PlayStation 5. That’s five first party titles and I think they deserve something close to top marks, given the circumstances. Regardless of how good Game Pass is, this is the most feeble launch line up I can remember in my 35 years of gaming. Microsoft must be totally embarrassed by their lack of coordination for next gen consoles.
The way they were meant to be played, not designed with some imagined next generation console in mind. I suppose the reason we have console wars is simply that most people can only afford one console. Notably, I’ve held off playing Destiny 2, Control and Monster Hunter: World until now so I can experience these games as they weren’t designed for next-generation consoles.

All the same third party games and exclusives of its own not to mention incredible indie support, Game Pass, and backwards compatibility. It’s certainly a nice gesture from the publishers who are offering the free upgrades for games that are straddling the generations. But who in their right mind is going to pay for those next gen games, considering the price hike?
The current gen versions. Not every game has a free upgrade offer. I’m confused to how it all works. Didn’t play Devil May Cry 5 at the start of lockdown in March. As DMR pointed out, not letting you play as Dante until halfway through was, for me, an poor choice. With V you can just spam the attack buttons and easily get an S rank or better, so there was no incentive to play him properly.
I was stuck with Zelda: Breath Of The Wild and wasn’t up to playing the game without a gaming laptop, so I would say it’s cheaper to get separate lower spec laptop and higher-spec desktop. Also, CPUs and GPUs run slower due to heat dissipation being harder. My second question would be, “Why? If you want to play whilst travelling,” said captainbloodsnot. Notably, only for gaming purposes do laptops exist.
I finally got my gaming mojo back GC, after purchasing an Oculus Quest 2 headset. The first game I bought for it is the table tennis game Eleven Table Tennis VR. I have not set up my Facebook account yet, as I am hearing stories that if your account is inactive then you could be treated as a ‘bot’ and banned from the game. However, I can use my wife’s (highly active) account for purchases. Notably, the price is just 299!
GC any advice? Will I be OK with my own highly inactive account or will Facebook continue to act as reprehensibly as they are often called to do? WC: We used an account that we haven’t used properly in over a decade. Other than that, we’ve never actively made use of it. If you want to try God Hand, please let us know who owns the Hulk character rights.
Was suggested by Cray, who asked how has the coronavirus changed how you play games this year? Since the start of lockdown in March, how many have you beaten? Have you taken more interest in parts of gaming you didn’t used to care about, like esports, or have experimented with genres you wouldn’t normally play?
