Flashback! I didn't even know it was getting an XB1 release. I'll be revisiting this one - it's pretty much a fixture in my all-time top five games.

I've never heard of it - what kind of game is it?

It's an old 2D platformer with puzzle elements, Cora... it launched on the Amiga in the early 90s and has been ported to many other systems since then.

I remember thinking Flashback was great, but then I remember thinking Another World was great and revisiting that last year was like meeting up with an ex-girlfriend and finding out that it was actually Boris Johnson in drag.

:lol:

I thoroughly enjoyed replaying Another World, despite how ludicrously badly its ages, so I’ll give this a shot. :D

If anyone was looking for a decent Xbox One S console deal, there are currently some amazing offers at Amazon. MS appear to be going in hard with the console in the run-up to Christmas.

Hope you guys can give me a few pointers!

Finally picked up the Xbox One X i’d been lusting after since I got a 58” 4K tv last year. Upon setting it up, the home menu says I have 32 ‘Xbox one x enhanced’ games in my library but when I click on it, it just takes me through to all my games. I seem to remember being able to sort my games by size, 4K, 360 etc but now I don’t have these options. I can just adjust the tile size and whether they’re arranged alphabetically, by size or by letter. It’s a pretty lacklustre UI. I’ve updated Forza Horizon 4 and Left 4 Dead 2 as I know these are both enhanced but i’m Just looking to find a less frustrating way to navigate my new console. So, my two questions are, how can I sort to see just the enhanced games and perhaps more importantly, what would you recommend as being the best demonstration of the hardware based on how much it improves the game either on 360 or One... I hear that the first Forza Horizon from the 360 has seen a massive improvement and I remember that game playing brilliantly at the time. Thanks!

I'm sure on the game list you have 3 options on the top. The 3rd option lets you choose 'all games', 'Xbox One X enhanced Games' and 360 and Original Xbox Games '

I just went to buy Flashback and... it's gone. No sign of it on the store. Did a bit of digging (and translating - the publisher is French company Microids). It sounds like there was a bug that prevented progress so they've pulled it. Disappointing.

I’m guessing that’s clips that are uploaded?

Also on the subject of captures... is there a way to properly disable automatic recording? I thought I had but after playing Forza 5 and Forza Horizon 2 over summer I now have hundreds of random clips to delete :fp: they don’t even seem to be recording anything noteworthy like a fast laptime and sometimes my Xbox makes a capture 2-3 times in a minute. Crashing in to a tree... capture etc

Ah well, it was only a fiver. And I’ll be glad to have the original AC back in my collection. I traded it in years ago after 100%ing it.

Battlefield 1 could end up being more profitable for EA than the new game. Looking on Xbox at all the DLC and the amount of microtransactions/unlocks holy gooseberry fool. Is it a big grind to unlock everything? I hated when they did it in Battlefield 3, requiring you to get so many kills in certain ways (like 5 grenade kills leads everyone to spam grenades and completely unbalance online play :fp: )

I didn't find it a grind at all but then again most of the stuff I wanted was easily got (the med bag and ammo crate) and even the better guns for the medic and support (the only classes I use) are easy to get with few requirements.

I've tried being a sniper but unless someone literally stands still, waves at me and and then makes themselves as big a target as they can I'm not going to hit them from anything over about 20 metres :lol: . There's more chance of them dying of old age.
