I'd prefer more interesting tracks but focusing on turning left is rather missing the point. However, it's an easy target for cheap jokes and I'm in absolutely no position to criticise that!

Between Nascar, Semi-Driving and Point and Clicks, there are plenty of jokes to go around.

It always baffles me how many people seem to think that racing is about a driver beating a track. If that was the case, it would just be whoever lapped the best time and they'd be done with it.
The inclusion of right turns along with left hardly makes some big difference in the competition, it's a detail. Of course, if you look at many other racing disciplines they MOSTLY turn right, with a few lefts thrown in. I'm not sure why turning LEFT is seen as so miserable.

Oval racing since the laps are much shorter makes it door to door racing, which some other motorsports would love to have on their grad prix tracks. But hey if many of Blue's Posters like Euro Truck Driver, really there is no reason to point fingers now. A good sim is a good sim. Not saying this offering here is, but in general. I go back to Papy Nascar 2 and Glide with video circle track racing.

I liked Grimrock, but playing Might and Magic lately has made me realize just how much I missed the story and dialog rather than just a mindless dungeon crawl.

You beat me to the comment

M&M X Legacy knocked LoG right off the table. The game has me addicted. I wanna freaking call in sick for work ffs. Must buy for M&M fans. And Lands of Lore fans.

On top of that all meaningful gaming numbers are housed in csv's so you can tweak game play to exactly how you like it. I'm not sure I've played a TB game with so many tactic options.

EDIT oh and lol at the 13gig patch for DR3 that didn't fix the lag issues... was kinda pissed it went XB1 exclusive but not so much anymore, they deserve each other.

What else did that patch bring besides the same performance?

I'll have to read up on what improvements were done to see if it is...."worth a buy". Probably not is my initial guess.

Will still probably go for Grimrock 2 when it comes out, though.

In this case it's all good. Liked Grim, like MMX, will like Grim2. I do like inside and outside, Grim2 fixes that. I do prefer true TB combat in these type games, but Grim's still fine. Using Cheatengine you can slow down combat if you want a more TB feel.

Not that it really matters for the crossplatform titles. They are going to be built around the lowest common denominator anyway.

Not in a FPS case. We see companies have no problem making the same game and one running 30 fps the other 60 fps.

Gross, gratuitous sex. The franchise would be better off not using such shameless tactics. Ohhh, we are talking Thief right?

What is the Xbox known for? Halo and GoW. Not much. Not surprising they wanted it, little to cling to.

4 EA over here:

Blackguards - Was In EA. Released. Good.
Divinity OS - In EA. Will be good. Glad to support.
7DTD - In EA. Already good. Glad to support and play as we go.
MMX10 - Was in EA. Released. Good.

I've had zero issues with it, happy to have the option than not. Now if you don't do some research and buy these blindly and then get pissed about it, that is more on your end. It's a product offering. I like the sneak peak, I like to give feedback, I'm all for supporting games that the big boys won't make but that I want.

It's amazing how awesome SWG was and it went under. That's all I hear and always wonder how this could be.

As someone who spent years with Neverwinter Nights - and to a lesser extent it's sequel - this is rather appealing to me. The editing tools looks fast, easy to use with lots of options.

That's cool. However Divinity Original Sin is going to be out much sooner and has many of the same qualities. So we have a couple to choose from.

there shouldn't be an objectively wrong choice and no choice should result in a dead end.

Direct TV disagrees.

As someone who is a big fan of World of Xeen, the pre-release version of the game was a huge disappointment. As a result, I didn't spend more than a couple of hours with the game, but the first few hours were enough to turn me off.

There were quite a few like you. Playing the release though, so far they have polished this up really well. This baby is slick. The only thing I would ask for is the ability to add more power bars, if only one more. I'm not a fan of opening a spell-book if the spell can't fit on my 10 slot power bar. But performance, move speed, loot qty and uniqueness, day/night cycle, map, quest tracking and other things are now finished. Many of us were concerned about the release being early... they were holding back some.

+They kept the csv files in which we can change a lot of gameplay mechanics easily. Like... I dropped the cost of mana for all spells noticeably along with a little drop in power. I want my magic users to be able to hurl early and often. But tons of #'s tweaking you can do there.

I'm absolutely swimming in good games atm.

I found the voice acting to be wooden, and lifeless. Really hope they do way better next time.

Bethesda has some amazing strengths. But they need to hire some hollywood wizards on both animations, voice and directing. If their games had State of Art qualities in these categories, we might not even need another game. I just assume someone untouchable does these and it is what it is. Tough.

Well said, Tom. You'd think this would be common sense in game-design 101. Does anyone really buy a game because some actor is voicing a character?

I thought the same until some people round here made the stink about
Garret.

But same with movies, spread the money around. Don't care about voices on cartoons as long as they are good.

I seriously doubt Stephen Russell costs as much as John Cleese or Patrick Stewart. The issue with Garret is that so much of his character is bound up in Russell's voice -- get rid of Russell and it's no longer the same Garrett. But Uriel Septim VII? The voice is irrelevant to the character and could just as effectively be voiced by a low-cost, but talented, professional voice actor as by Patrick Stewart.

We've had good batman movies that have survived different actors. Hey I love me some Russell, when he is in other games like Skyrim, you instantly know who that is. But I'm not religious about it either, it's a reboot of sorts and they have someone else and to me if I can let this go, the videos with the new voice I found good.
