Well as usual, Xbox feels weird compared to PS4. But **** me the graphics the One X produces. I'm astounded.

I get side tracked so often. Bounties are killing me. I owe hundreds.

You get a bounty if some clown walks in front of your horse and gets bowled over

Like seriously?

A few mishaps have caused some pretty funny bounties for me

Tried to mount my horse, which is the same button as tackling an innocent bystander - Bounty
Had a friendly chat with an NPC who offered me their herbs to pick, which apparently is the same button as choke - Bounty
:lol:

enjoying this game so far though!

Story should have ended when Arthur died. Having to play farm boy for half a day to get the final credits was pretty lame IMO.

Yes the Epilogue was a bit of a slog

Those of you with Xboxes - if you haven't seen it they're doing a 'first month' discount for Xbox Game Pass. $1. It's the Netflix of gaming, for those playing along at home.

There's some good stuff on there, been using it a bit while I'm on break. I completed Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice, the Life is Strange games, and a couple of little platformers. Ori is in there as well, as well as all of the Halo games and a bunch of other first party stuff.

I was pretty 'meh' towards game pass before I tried it, but it really is astounding value at $11 a month. I am going to let it lapse, but just because I've got a bunch of other titles to work through... I will be back!

Thoroughly recommend "Control", Remedy's new game. I'm not too far into it, but its a blast.

Picture yourself as an adult Eleven (from Stranger Things), in a government building running through a story that's somewhere in between The X-Files and Warehouse 13.

Worth mentioning that the graphics are amazing, but you'll want to be on PC, Xbox One X or PS4 Pro - I hear its a bit too demanding at times for the entry-level consoles and runs poorly on them.

I’ve been playing Control, pretty difficult - I had to get my gamer son to beat one of the bosses for me - but fun, runs fine on my original PS4, can’t recall any issues
