I am sure there will be plenty of gameplay videos on youtube ones the beta is out, if not already.
I saw Raptor had a few video up on youtube including an interview with the devs.
The game looks good there's no doubt about it, but so did all their previous games.
Link to the Raptor vids

Awesome developer with great support of their games, free DLC etc., but unfortunately their main focus for all their previous games were on the MP.
With RTS games, I have zero interest in MP.
I'll keep an eye on this one but I won't be preordering. Probably grab it on sale after release

I am just glad I did not back this game with more than the minimum $35 or whatever it was. Clearly putting more money into the game won't make it come out sooner.

Only played the second. Concept was great, but the driving was meh. Hopefully that's fixed.
The driving looks twice as arcadey this time around. Looks like they may having improved handling, but there doesn't seem to be much weight to the car
Yeah, thankfully you did not have to do much driving as parachuting around the map was way faster/more fun than any other form of transportation.
Or you could just hijack a chopper or airplane if you've preferred that.

The 3rd game looks like fun and I will probably grab it on sale down the road.
I don't put enough time into these open world games to justify the full asking price.

ahh yes the RED TEXT.. the internet equivalent of clapping your hands rhythmically while youre yelling at someone.. you know, to emphasize the DRAMA

No, no, no. RED means STOP, and in this case RED means FACT. And we all know, when somebody says FACT!, then the discussion is over. You cannot win against FACT and even less vs. FACT!

I think The Cave and most of the Lego games aren't split screen, everyone just shares a single screen.
The newer lego games (ones that came out in the last 3-4 years) are split screen
For Trine I think you have to coop on the same screen anyways, no need split screen for that.
Does Grid 2 have demo derby mode like Grid 1 had? That would be kick ass in split screen

They're just the games that have support. Splitscreen is unfortunately rare.
There are still a few good games that have split screen, like the Lego titles, Renegade Ops, The Cave, those are a few I usually play with the kids on the PC, but I agree it is not an over populated genre on the PC. Consoles do not have a crap tons of local coop games either. Can't remember if Portal 2 had split screen on the PC, I believe it had it on the console.

EA did the same with Garden Warfare only the console versions had split screen. Such an idiotic decision. Especially nowadays when the living room PCs are a lot more common than they were a few years ago. Local coop split screen games are great fun.

Not that I ever buy any EA games - I boycott them on principle.
I've heard Chris Roberts is teaming up with EA because he is running out of money and needed a publisher to finish Star Citizen

3) Sometimes you just don't want to play multiplayer with people
Exactly
When you are tired and don't feel up to the task of competing against other players online, it's nice to just jump into the game with a lower difficulty setting bots and just stomp them because that is all you want to do.
It's great to have bots for games like these but sadly less and less developers care about that because online MP is the shits these days.
There are still some games that have bots like CS GO, Insurgency, some CoD titles, UT.
I used to enjoy just jump into a UT game against highest difficulty bots and just run and gun for 10-15 minutes to let some steam out at the end of the day.

Plants vs Zombies garden warfare was the same, no split screen on the PC only on consoles.
Not sure why EA cuts features from the PC versions of games.

There's no excuse when the previous games support it. All they have to do is not break it.
As far as I know they are using a new game/graphics engine for this title, this is the first F1 title on "next gen" consoles, so that may explains the reason why SLI worked in previous titles and not in this one.

With that said I am hearing a lot of issues with the PC version. I'd hold on with the purchase and maybe grab this on sale down the line.
The console versions work fine though.

Yeah many of us are here since the beginning of times, just did not create an account until later. I was reading and visiting Blues every single day for a long time before I created an account also.

And to add to what Derek is saying... if you're already invested and want out, see if your package is worth selling on the gray market. You may even be able to turn a profit if you have a decent LTI ship.

I sold my Scout LTI package today, so I'm happy with that. Tripled my "investment".
I wonder how long before they will crack down on these sales because you know Mr Roberts doesn't see a single cent from these sales!!

Oh we are still very far off of anything that can be called finished.

I didn't play any MP at all. Usually playing against the Ai in demo derbies and races. Kids and I are having a blast playing it, but like I said I haven't checked it out in a while.
Not sure how much SP they can add to a racing game.
Those screenshots do look pretty bad though, wtf

Next Car Game seems to be stuck in development hell, they just released an overhaul of their engine and the visuals took a pretty big step backwards.
It did? I haven't checked it out in a while but I did see the e-mail about changing the engine.
Well that sucks
