    Hellblade looks pretty good. I gotta say, if I didn't have such a huge backlog, I would have probably bought it already.
    Broke is a state of wallet. Poverty is a state of mind.

    I'm really glad I'll finally be able to play the Shenmue series. Hopefully we'll get 3 too someday.

    Pure nostalgia. Adventure Pals reminds me of Yoshi's Island. One of the best games I played as a kid.

    The avatar discussion part of the podcast sounded like a troubleshooting session for Microsoft to figure out how to utilize them better laugh

    Didn't get a chance to watch the stream of it, but Adventure Pals sounds like it's full of over the top ridiculous fun... I'm definitely interested in it now after not really caring much for it before.

    Hadn't heard of Adventure Pals until now, but it sounds like a future pick up

    One thing I’d like to see with avatars is the ability to get new items from hard achievements. So if someone gets Seriously 4.0 you can get a gold lancer. This way when someone sees your avatar they you’re total boss at that game. So not only does it look cool but it also becomes a badge.

    I remember devs did this in the form of Avatar Rewards on the 360 in like 2011-2012. Unlocking specific achievements in game would unlock like shirts or other things. Unfortunately they were pretty trivial and not difficult to get, except Sonic Generations apparently has some that I haven't unlocked for whatever reason and I completed that the game. Maybe they'll bring them back for this round of avatars which would be cool.

    I'm with the guys above in that Adventure Pals sounds like a must buy based on Jack's appraisal

    I am in the minority, but I like the avatars and I wish more games used them. Joy Ride Turbo was cool watching your avatar drive around. What about a special mission in Hitman where you hunted your own avatar? Use your imagination game developers!! I also enjoyed unlocking avatar awards even if I never wore the clothing.

    Avatars on screen is an essential. Although the home page is better space is still wasted and just a place to go elsewhere from.

    Not trying is the same as failing!

    Shenmue is available for pre-order around £23 so it is quite reasonably priced.

    As a competitionist, please no series achievements!

    Series rewards like gears of war 2/3 (or even cross series unlockables - think halo driversuits in forza etc.) would be nice and things like forza hub and uplay rewards that give you stuff for completing other/older games would be nice - but it doesn't need to be achievements. Sounds like an even worse version of the "unlock all other achievements" achievements warning
