    Trying to play oblivion and I had to turn the hdr off. Issue was that in dark caves the ui elements are way too bright and when I open the menu or open a container I get blinded.

    I often jibed with @Kreeeee about how gamepass wasn't that great value for someone like me but I realised something. Some weekends when bored I flick through the PSN store for deals and buy a random game (£14 on watchdogs legion last). I've wasted a lot of money that way. Gamepass allows me to scratch that itch with no risk as I've already paid for it. Also I recently played a game I wouldn't have noticed probably called Call Of The Sea which I really enjoyed.
    I've also played some terrible games but they didn't cost me anything to try so I think actually it's probably well suited for me. I'm still not sure if I'd feel the same paying full price but certainly with the current rate its working out well.

    I'm currently playing Worms W.M.D such a great game!! Brings back memories.

    I do have the voices stuck on Essex girls though which is a bit annoying

    Got mine at AO. I don't think this is a direct competitor but happy to edit if mods think it is.

    Not buyer's remorse per se.
    I was going to get one eventually, I just got caught in the hype and got one early.

    Yup been hearing it's an amazing system. That's why I got it but technically my PC can do most of it. Still Gamepass is better on console than PC.

    Added you :)

    Anyone else feel free to add me, my tag is in my sig. :)

    (Added a couple of you from the Gamertag thread but couldn't see everyone who has posted above)

    Snap on that one. Not usually the sort of game I look at (adventure puzzle like) but I played it straight through from start to finish and really enjoyed it.

    Have you bought the game directly or via GamePass? I was kind of hoping it might have been available for pre-load like The Medium but I can only see the demo as being downloadable (which I have) and the main game pre-order only.

    might be worth checking or changing the channels on your router? at least give it a go. It could be a device in your house or possibly a neighbours which conflicts with yours, hence seemingly fixed then broken again. I use wired on my SX and PC I appreciate this isn't always an option for some but does offer far better and consistent connectivity. I use flat cables so they slot along the skirting boards and carpet nicely.

    Just searched about my issue where button presses don't register and it seems to be a fairly common issue. Looks like I am able to get it changed under warranty. I have a wired pad too so can still play.
    If I can hear the button click I'm clearly pressing it hard enough.

    Which button out of curiosity? My L1 button needs pressing really hard to work, on the black controller that came with it. Makes grenades/skills really frustrating.
    Don't fancy sending the whole thing back, but if you can just send controller?

    Seems to be Y. I haven't noticed it on any others yet. I'll fire off an email to support tomorrow.

    I've seen LB mentioned a lot too.

    You can pre-install the game using the Xbox app on your phone if you have that. It just needs to be connected to your console. Then you search for the game under the library option on the menu bar at the bottom. When you select the game from the results, you'll get an option to download to console. Choose that and it'll start downloading immediately. I've just done that about 45 mins ago for Outriders.

    You've got to do it from the Xbox app, not the Game Pass app :)

    Awesome, glad you finally got it! It did seem iffy when you initially posted so at least it's a good outcome for you :)

    Hehe well the hype has been real tbh! Hopefully you keep it and enjoy using it. I certainly have. My PC barely gets a look these days although I don't have loads of time for gaming anyway. But the Series X is amazing for that, especially with Quick Resume being so awesome. I'm back on AC Valhalla at the moment and after a break from it, I'm really enjoying it again. Looking forward to trying Outriders tomorrow though. It should be downloaded by the morning :)

    Damn. I’ve been trying to preload Outriders from the Xbox Game Pass app and wondering why it was only queued up to download today. Gah.

    That's how it worked for Flight Sim on the PC so I'd assume you'd be able to do the same with the Xbox :)

    I thought it was out today though. It's just loaded for me without changing country so it is!

    Weird. Says 2nd April on my GP app. Oh that's UTC


    Yeah I didn't spot the time zone. You'd think it would be tailored per your region.

    Regarding headsets. I foolishly purchased the Audeze Penrose instead of having the foresight to get the X version (unofficially supports ps5 too).
    I assume if I wire them into the controller it will just work that way?

    If the headset supports a 3.5mm jack then yep, wiring it into the controller will work :)
