    Yeah, data is like gold for me living in the sticks just outside Perth.  50 gig is pretty much it unless I want to pay a couple of hundred a month.  I am literally updating Halo Wars 2 (16 gig) over a 2 month billing cycle Laugh 3 Crying or Very sad

    You're welcome to drive on down to Scarborough and hook up your xbox and update all the stuff you need to mate. I've got unlimited.

    It shows their positivity towards whether you will like the game - if you like it and buy it you've already got it installed so you can instantly play it. If they made you download 43GB after a free trial most people wouldn't want to do that.

    i think finding a way to even just half the download size for a trial would've been the way to go, then download the other half for the full purchase, as it stands i don't see a great deal of people downloading 43 gig for a game they might only drop a few hours into before deciding it's not for them, but i do appreciate that i have no idea how they might've done that and it prolly would've been a hell of a lot easier said than done.

    Yeah it's bloody tough to do - they're obviously short of projected sales so need to boost something to get it over the line. Spending more money to make a trial version of the game would be counter productive. I do get ya though - especially if it's a weekend free special and you find out on Sunday you're not going to do it are ya haha

    Alright been playing the new Crash for a good 5 days or so now, only Crash 1 so far.

    One of my new favourite hobbies is to watch Youtube videos of people raging.

    "Game........Over" If I had $1 for everytime I've seen that...

    I bought a 4tb hard drive for my xbox on the weekend to store all my games. Fuck me it's so much better than only have 10 games on my xbox. By the end of this week I'll have my whole library on there which will be 50 odd games, then I won't have redownload them when I get the new xbox one x

    It's kind of amazing, the catastrophic and absolute failure that was 'GO Fest' probably should've been the death knell for it, but in the aftermath, i haven't seen this many people out playing since the initial hysteria after its release

    Have they bought out a big update or is it just a unexplained swell?

    they've finally introduced some legendary pokemon into the game, with more to be introduced over the coming weeks, plus they're running an event at the moment where pretty much everything you can do in-game has been increased, until saturday morning - Double xp, stardust & candy. More frequent pokemon spawns. Egg & buddy distance decrease by 2/3rds

    nope, supposedly in the works, but they're trying to severely restrict spoofing and botting before they even think about rolling it out
