made it to the Midnight mission which I believe is the last one on Halo 4 flying the fighter through the Didact's ship is quite hard but good fun. Composer was a good fun mission that felt more like a proper Halo mission. It was kind of reminiscent of Halo 2's first mission defending the station. Shame more of the levels didn't follow this pattern.

I do hope that 343 get the level designs better for Halo 5 though because right now after playing 4 I'm questioning whether I'd be better off leaving it. The first trilogy was great but I've found 4 a bit of a slog more akin to a COD type shooter and I find that a bit of a put off. They did an awesome job remastering the games but difficulty wise at times on 4 they took things just a touch too far for me.

@RevolvingPrawn‌ Might have to send my fucking Xbox One back again! It started making a chirping noise again, but different from before at three different pitch levels.... It has stopped now, but I have a bad feeling it'll get worse. Why didn't I just stick to my PC, as I can fix things my self.

Happens sometimes bud. Like when I got my GTX 660 I had to send it back 3 times till I found one that didn't coil whine so badly.
This is something that really annoys me though, whenever you get a product that has a built-in fan (Like most PSU's) they never put in a top end one, they always use crappy sleeve bearing ones that die if breathed on from a meter away. At the moment though I'm wondering something similar, it's been probably more than 2 months since I switched on my X1. Kinda wondering why I have it when my PC is so much easier, and games are mod-able that way. Suppose I have to wait for F1 2015 to release before I use the console again for league races.

Can anyone tell me what you do on GTA V online? As I'm yet to play it, and people keep saying how good it is.
Have you got any friends with the game? Playing solo online can be pretty boring. The most fun I had with GTA Online was playing with 4 people I know :)
Nope I have no friends :p In all seriousness most are PC gamers. Everyone on here has it for PS4 so can't play with them, I'll be able to play it with you when it's out on PC. Shame I thought you could do stuff solo and have fun :s What do you actually do though? 

Just hope you're still playing it when I get it, as I probably won't buy it until it's cheaper and when I have a new GPU.

Lol, you loner :p You can do a few solo things but it isn't the most fun. Best thing to do is meet random people and if they seem cool then ask if they wanna do some missions. 

Probably will still be playing it. The only reason I stopped playing it on the 360 was because I was getting much more heavily into PC gaming after it came out and the 360 graphics started becoming disappointing and annoying to play with :p Hopefully the price on the Steam key sites will be pretty decent.

Ah fuck sake, that noise wasn't a one off! And it's the same bloody noise as last time! Getting really fed up with my x1 Calling Shopto tomorrow as this is ridiculous!!!!!! I'll be on my 4th X1 after this, and if anything this time it's louder than the last one......

That sucks. Is it a common problem on XBONE's ? It could just be from a bad batch of them or something like that.

Could be a dodgy batch, but with the gap between him sending them back I'm not sure how likely that is :s So far I'm on my first, had it since April with no problems so far.

If you look on the net it's a very common problem :( Remember I said it made a slight noise when I got this one? As the others never did it, but after that I was worried it would eventually make the chirping noise and now it has...  The most annoying thing is having to re download my digital games and installing the disc versions (as they take a while to install and update.) This is the one thing I hate about consoles, as it's just a bloody fan that I could easily replace myself if it wasn't for the warrenty.

Had the same problem with the 360, think we went through 3 of them in the space of 2 years before getting fed up of it and buying a PS3.

If I didn't have so many X1 games I'd probably do the same as I already have a PS4.... They use a really cheap bearing in the fan, yet say it can be on for 10 years non stop. I'll probably ring Shopto tomorrow, as I know they will change it as its the same problam as last time.
Never understand why consoles don't use good fans that last a long time as you can't change it, they should have an opening so you can change it yourself. It's going to take bloody ages to set it all up again, when really all it needs is a new fan :(
Should've stuck to PC.

Yeah the only problem I have with mine is my screen flickers and sometimes the sound cuts out for a few seconds when using it but generally aside from that mine is fine but I assume that's something to do with screen refresh rate not too sure. I've tried playing around with the settings but no luck yet.

Loved battlefront I and II! Especially the space battles. 
Yeah I've played the earlier ones have to say I'm tempted by this as well

It's not mine either if I'm honest, but it just completely sucks you in. It's like watching a hardcore version of Skyrim.
It's a telltale game so I'd probably love it without watching the program. I have been meaning to watch it but just never had the time. Currently watching Arrow as I love the series. As I have Sky I can watch the box set when I want o:)

Have you watched Arrow already or are you just re-watching it ? I've only just caught up to the current episode.

Lol , series 2 is much better than series 1 imo. I found series 1 a bit anti-climatic. It's still a great series though. It reminds me quite a bit of the dark knight trilogy actually.

@Lukedfrt‌ Just got The Last Of Us remastered from PS store as its on sale for £17.99 :D Can't wait as I loved the PS3 version. I'm actually timing how long it takes for my X1 to make that chirping noise before I ring Shopto. Wanted something to play while my X1 is being exchanged (as I won't be able to play GTA V :() So thought it was time to buy TLOU o:)

@RevolvingPrawn‌  If you like playing Worms, Worms Battleground is free with Gold at the moment on Xbox One :D

Things: 
1) GTA 5 is awesome to play online with friends. If anyone has it on the PS3/PS4 hit myself or @onetwothree up as we play it occasionally late at night in Aus which is early-midayish in England.
2)  SW:BF3 will hopefully be awesome, I got out my PS2 a few days ago and had a game of galactic conquest on SW: BF2 with the CIS, it was beyond fun (and all the childhood memories came running back :P)
3) I brought the The Last Of Us Remastered on the PS4 (I heard that the game was fantastic so I thought why not) and I really haven't enjoyed it. Does it get better as you continue through the story line or is it a pretty 'consistent' game?

And the games for gold continue being rubbish. @Hughesy Not a fan of Worms :p 
You sicken me, Worms is awesome! :o




 :p 

@Matthew77258‌  How can you not like The Last Of Us :o One of the best games I've ever played, the story alone is brilliant imo. Pretty sure @Lukedfrt‌   feels the same.

I feel like I haven't gotten into the story line as much as others, and in turn I've relied on the game play to keep me entertained. I may give it another try soon but I played it for a solid 3-5 hours and I didn't really enjoy it.
