No Vice City?

No just SA. GTA3 is on PS Now and SA Gamepass. Vide city the odd one out!

I would warn caution on Vice city. Rockstar lost the rights to a lot of the music that was in the original game.

That includes Billie Jean by Michael Jackson

Anyone played The Sinking City? A mate of mine recommended it recently, said he found it really absorbing.

Remember installing and uninstalling it the same day   :P

That was on the Xbox One mind you, but I seem to remember the controls and game design being really clunky. The concept and story sounds great on paper, but I found the game to be quite poor (and I'm usually one to give games some time!).

Have you read reviews or are you putting all your faith in Rawkites? :)

I have no idea what I’m taking about

It's got generally favourable reviews, some do mention the clunky design (something that has killed well-reviewed games in the past for me, see Greedfall) but I do tend to get a good feel on games from people on RAWK  ;D

Downloaded Alien isolation. yeah it's an old game but it's halloween and the dark nights are drawing in so want something scary. Downloading that Visage too. ooh that looks creepy. Shooter wise i downloaded Wolfenstein 2 the new colossus. never played any of them. That quick resume is amazing

Will probably have to get a 4k tv now though ::) pointless buying this piece of kit without one isn't it

Alien Isolation is fantastic.  I never knew hiding in cabinets for hours on end could be so rewarding.  The art design has Alien down perfectly.

Halo multiplayer dropping tonight, apparently.

Got some anniversary stream on from 6pm, so will likely be announced there.

Good news for fans of Max Payne. All 3 games now backwards compatible and available on the digital store as well.

Mortal Kombat 9 and Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe too.

Been dying to play Max Payne 3 again for years, you couldn’t even buy the old version. Downloaded it last night on Xbox will start playing once I’ve finished Deathloop.

Had a couple of games of Halo last night, both CTF. Plays like Halo which is refreshing from the COD's and BF's..

Made me want a Resistance FOM remake too. Not enough of these games about anymore. I find them easier than to play and not rage at.

I feel like the standard of player is higher than when for example Halo 3 or 4 came out. I'm kinda hoping it will attract more casual players when the official release date arrives, I've mostly been playing the unranked playlist and everyone seems pretty capable! Having said that, I'm really enjoying it - feels better than 4 and 5 already. 
Loving Everton's business this summer. Here's an early call - they finish above Liverpool this season.

Xbox ending the backward compatability programme quietly last night, that was the final update to it due to ‘legal and technical constraints.’

Glad there’s finally some new, big hitters coming out, my Series S has been gathering dust for a while but been hammering Forza lately and going to give Halo a go tonight.

Bought the 20th anniversary controller, should reach here in time to play Halo Infinite on it

Has a nice little message in the battery cover from Phil Spencer as well apparently
