This was quick!
Rome 2 just came last year. I know this won't be out until next year but still seems way too soon

Yeah, I hope it'll be cool. I could do with an actually good Sim City game.

Though it's made by the Cities in Motion devs, and those games are rather meh. It can't be worse than SimCity though and I'm hoping this becomes a hell of a city builder.
Agreed, Cities in Motion games were pretty weak.
This looks good on videos but we'll see how it plays.

... Definitely not going to pick it up on release, but might be fun to pick up when it's 50% - 75% off.

That actually ever happens with the COD franchise?!
It did but with older titles. By older I mean 3+ years old like Black Ops1 or MW2.
After the atrocious pile of shit Ghost was with it's fish Ai I am going to wait for a sale with this one if I'll ever even bother to get it.

Bought it! Can't wait to get home and check it out.
The first one was my all time favorite tower defense game.

No there is no story. You can play single player only but that just means everyone around you is npc not human players.
The game is a sandbox game take missions from agent type of deal or just go and explore, become a pirate or do whatever you want type of deal.
That other space game is going to be a little more story driven SP experience, Elite isn't like that, never was never will be.

Thanks (you too, DangerDog). I was aware of the sandbox and persistence plans when I backed it (fairly low/basic pledge, iirc), so that's alright, and everything I've seen so far looks really yummy ... but right now I'm not really sure I'll actually have time to play anything like that anytime soon, so I guess I was hoping they'd tack on a basic campaign to get a taste.
Well the single player "scenarios" are essentially a tutorial and they start you off with the basics and ease you into the combat and take on a dogfight against multiple enemies at ones etc.
If you want a taste that is your best bet. You can replay them as many times as you want if you do not feel like launching into the game and open world just yet.
There is also a "horde" mode where you can really hone your skills.
They did make a lot of effort to make the game easy to get into but difficult to master. Fun for everyone.

Hey, can I ask something stupid and basic?

Does this game offer anything for folks who like story-driven singleplayer, or is it purely sandbox when played alone? Is there any sort of story campaign?
No there is no story. You can play single player only but that just means everyone around you is npc not human players.

The docking tutorial is finally included into the single player portion as well, which is nice seeing how many people are having issues with docking.
After the first few speed docking attempts (try to land with HUD aka broken windshield) docking will be easy breezy.

My only gripe is them selling paint jobs. Is that new, or had it been there before and I just missed it?

Other than that, it's all good...

They've been selling those for a while now, and they are only cosmetics. I am sure they will have sales on packs of those or get them as rewards in game etc.
They don't bother me as much as the different ship variants for $100+ for that other space game

Imagine if they did what Valve does and created a marketplace where players could submit content, and the devs take a small cut from each sale. That would be amazing. The market is already there. They could even implement some kind of system that mirrors the existing in-game market that allows the price of things to fluctuate automatically based upon demand, should the content creator set it up that way, and only allow a certain number of the items to be allowed into the market, or something like that.

If you were a good enough artist/modeler/etc, you could easily make back the money you put into the game (and then some), while helping out the developers as well. Why haven't they done this already?
Maybe because noone suggested it to them yet?
Who knows, but it is a good idea.

For an early buy. Launch will be $72 CDN. That's way too much for any game, nevermind bare bones with the actual gameplay supposedly coming later on. I'd go $30, maybe even $40 with what I'm seeing and hearing, but double that? No way.


I am sure it will go on sale down the line, I personally have no issue paying more than retail price for this game as I am a big fan of it and by far the most entertainment I got from any games in the past 6 years, and it is still in beta!
But I understand everyone has their price range and reasons.

I think $60 is a sane price. These guys are clipping along pretty well I think final release is near.
Beta 2 will have a lot of stuff, I've just finished reading the newsletter link here if anyone interested.
The finished game will kick so much ass.

This game reminds me of FUEL from Codemasters a few years back.
That was freakin boring. I literally had a piece of duct tape over the trigger of the controller so my finger wouldn't hurt after 15 minutes of just full throttle.

I didn't get a chance to try it last night, installation stopped at 24% and I didn't notice it while playing Destiny.
Hopefuly I can give it a try tonight.
Friends that played it were saying similar things about it as Fantaz. Best graphics on the xbox and the driving physics are pretty good. Different from Forza 5, much easier to drift for example.

Looking forward to check out the Forza Horizon 2 demo tonight.

Since I no longer have a console I highly miss the Forza series, and would greatly appreciate your feedback compared to the first Horizon.
I'll try my best to give you some feedback, although I haven't played a heck of a lot of the first Horizon. It was a great game though.

Why oh why oh why is it only for the bone...
Same reason why The Last of Us is only for the PS
With that said I really wish some day these console manufacturers would make out and allow cross platform MP for cross platform games.

I know this will probably never happen but it would still be pretty awesome.
