News Comments > Forza Horizon 2 Listed for PC?

It's probably just a listing error but I think Forza would do really well on the PC. They're not my kind of games but racing enthusiasts are a pretty hardcore/spendy community on the PC platform.

Yeah wow. This is probably one of the craziest release days I can remember. I'm going for Far Cry 4 until more people weigh in on DA:I. GTA V I'm waiting for the PC version, I sold my PS3 copy awhile ago about 20% in because the load times and visuals weren't up to snuff.

Still hadn't unlocked on Uplay by the time I left for work but I will check it out later for sure. Got it for free for my videocard, between The Crew and AC: Unity it was an easy choice.

I was disappointed to hear the grappling hook is only for preset spots in the world though, big missed opportunity there.

How about people just keep their piracy stuff to themselves then we don't need to have these silly discussions? I've never understood that mentality. It's not enough to get something for free, you have to go on the internet and brag about it too. On a website where we have developers and other members of the industry. It's really inconsiderate and frankly it doesn't impress anyone that you downloaded gigabytes of shit or whatever.

It's really hard to fault publishers for their attitudes about PC/piracy when people here are being the literal stereotype they complain about. Have your little piracy demo and maybe show the slightest bit of gratitude by not throwing it in their faces.


Now onto actual games, I got this for free with my videocard and did the preload but UPlay still hasn't unlocked it Anyone else having the same thing? I thought it would release at midnight.

E:D looks like a nice enough game but nothing I've seen suggests it's anywhere close to SC in any respect (gameplay, graphics, userbase, depth, etc), nor would I expect it to given it was developed at a fraction of the budget.

You are 100% right.

ED is currently nearly finished while SC is a hangar, and limited dog fighting module.

ED is certainly not anywhere close to SC. It's light years ahead.

Cold as ice, well played sir

I know Linux has had them at least since '94 because I thought they were the shit back then (fvwm2).

The only reason MS decided to implement this feature is to throw a bone to hardcore users. This will be a support nightmare, I know at least 3 relatives that won't understand them, ever.

They needed some sort of bullet point other than "a different version number". I agree that its not going to get a lot of use outside of enthusiast circles. Heck I'm an enthusiast and I can't see myself using it much outside of work.

The PT video is amusing. It is one of the more memorable experiences I've had on a console. My brother was visiting and asked to see a PS4 game, I happened to have downloaded it (totally free little game btw) so I figured why not. 4 hours later it was like we were kids again - still going on trying to figure out all of the puzzles and picking up on changes in the level. It was a really engrossing little game with a few quality scares. I hear the full game won't be like it which is kinda disappointing but I am definitely intrigued to see what else Kojima has come up.

Games change and I can accept that but they should have been out in front of this in a better way. Devs need to acknowledge this sort of thing can affect future performance in crowdfunding though, be careful.

This is a terrible thread BTW, I feel sorry for any newcomer trying to parse this sort of shit.

So long as Sweden is going to label books, music and movies as sexist too. I wonder what they would think of the content on ABC.

Is this the social justice troll with the fake lesbian persona? Reading more yep I guess so, I read about this person last week. Someone was trying to silence others and ruin reputations under the umbrella of 'social justice', often displaying massively hypocritical stances and tirades. Didn't like the same author or book? You were a 'woman hater who needs to have acid thrown in their face'. They would then delete them later to erase evidence. Reminds me of someone else.

Yeah this is the same woman (or whatever). According to Scalzi's girlfriend she would lash out at people about social justice issues but then engage in extremely graphic messaging herself. It is an interesting situation, she basically got away with widescale trolling and unfairly tarred many people. She even got cooperation from people who just automatically believed her because she was talking about social justice issues in her complaints. This is why its good to question, not just believe.

there are still people in the 30fps camp?!? man i used to be one of them, like, 15 years ago. that was my first real taste of bumping up against my own ego, when my friend showed me a quake game side by side, rendered in 30 and 60 fps. clear difference. that was the first time i can remember being unequivocally wrong in my adult life, and i'm glad i chose the path of truth where a lot of people would just argue endlessly because they con't actually care about the truth and just cant suffer the embarrassment to their ego of being wrong. just thought i'd share that interesting tidbit in my evolution as a person =D

You usually see apologists trot it out when their plastic box of choice can't render at higher framerates. I see people frequently say "the human cant blah blah" too and I'm going to start pointing them to that article now.

Taylor swift has made "Less than $500,000 across hundreds of millions of plays."

The poor thing. She's probably starving. Maybe we should start a fundraiser.

If shes that poorly compensated, how well can anyone else be doing? I don't know shit about Taylor Swift other than she seems to mega popular but it seems like these companies aren't being fair about how revenue is split.

You can get one from other countries without issue it seems. Looks like they just didn't make that many of them.

Ubisoft put literally no effort into porting from the consoles. They took advantage of bare-metal console APIs to push 50,000 draw calls per frame (which is outrageously unoptimized already), and they just stuck that as-is on DirectX 11, which tends to hork up around 10,000 calls per frame.

Some Ubi Toronto anon on reddit. So yeah it sounds like just bad optimization.

I really like the game. A shame Ubisoft rushed this out. In 3-6 mo I think this could have easily been the best of the series and blown people away.

The AC games seem to thrive on christmas period sales but personally I think they would have been fine, Far Cry 4 lands in what, a week anyway? They already had Rogue too. This could've been pushed back for much needed optimization and bug fixing. I hope their sales are down enough for them to get the message.

No game gets shipped in a perfect state but this is too far in the other direction.

I find TB is pretty close to what I consider a normal "core" gamer, hes really good at some types of games and bad at others like most people. Anyone who has streamed with commentary knows that its very difficult to keep a running commentary and fully concentrate on the game too. Giantbomb on the other hand, those guys are just straight up bad at most games and I find watching them play kind of painful. Their interaction with each other is more entertaining than anything else.

I've seen too much evidence of problems from almost all platforms to bother with this until its cheaper. Shame because normally I like the AC games.
