While this game looks worse all the time I'd be willing to give the beta a go. But forget paying for the privilege.

It only takes about 10-15 minutes to get from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. The map scale seems largely out of whack considering California and Nevada are the 3rd and 7th largest states by area. Can you imagine a trip to Rhode Island? If you're not careful, you'll sneeze and blow right through the entire damn state.

I read Steam reviews that stated the scale was poorly done. But it's really that bad?! Woah, it's unlike SCS to drop the ball like that.

While the general consensus is that it's good and looking nicer than ETS2 there also seems to be a good deal of disappointment in being limited to 2 trucks and just Cali and Nevada. From what I've been reading most people seem to be equating to a good DLC rather than a complete game. I know SCS says they'll be expanding on it but that'll obviously be paid content.
There is going to be free content with at least two trucks and one state in it. SCS gave away all the added trucks for free in ETS2. I think this trend will continue with ATS at least for awhile. The real question is the states. I'm worried at how quiet they've been about their release plans. If they are going to charge ETS2 prices getting through the lower 48 will be far too expensive. I just really hope that they don't add micro-transactions out the ass as in one state per purchase.

I'm really torn about whether or not to pick up ATS. On one hand I loved ETS2 and pretty much played it to death. On the other hand a trucking game with only 2 trucks rubs me the wrong way. Could you imagine people defending a racing game with only 2 cars in it and the promise of more coming soon? I know SCS will make good on that but I don't understand why they didn't delay the release to put more trucks in it. Unless the licensing situation is worse then they're letting on. I fear there is a slight possibility we will only get two brands of truck in the game.

Plus if I'll never be able to afford to drive cross-country some of the appeal of it is gone.

Woah, you're diagnosing mental conditions based on TV viewing habits? Can you be any more full of fucking shit?

Hit a nerve did he?

Your taste in everything sucks by the way.
Taste is subjective. Hence your taste sucks. But yes I have no patience for trolls.

Introspection is not your strong suit apparently.

Hey, I never said my tastes were the end all be all.

The few bright spots-
Bojack Horseman- Actually funny!

This is when I realize you deal with depression and are probably on meds.

Jokes are incredibly lame and forced but I find that it's mostly sadistic sense of humor since the entire show is about depression. Bojack, his best friend, his ex and even his writer are depressed people and about their lives.

I've been saying this for awhile but Netflix needs to stop adding shity originals that no one wants

You mean some of the best-received titles of last year like Master of None and Kimmy Schmidt? Daredevil? Orange is the New Black? House of Cards? No one wants those, right?

Lets see here.

Master of None- Stupid sitcom.
Daredevil- Generic super hero drama.
Orange is the new black- Stupid sitcom.
Hemlock Grove- crap
MArco Polo- only semi interesting
Bloodline- uninteresting
Sense8- meh.
Narcos- clip show and generic.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt- crappy sitcom.
F is for Family- so bad it's first episode is unwatchable.
Arrested Development- They ruined a wonderful show by changing it from ensemble show to another crappy sitcom.

The few bright spots-
Bojack Horseman- Actually funny!
Longmire- Continues on a solid show.
House of Cards- the one show that actually rivals HBO in terms of quality.
Winter on Fire: Ukraine's Fight for Freedom- All around excellent documentary.

Netflix is peddling and making enmasse the mindless crap that caused me to cut the cord. I want to watch good movies and TV shows not the watered down crap that is peddled to middle America. If Netflix wants to rival HBO as they appear to do the need to step it up.

Of course all viewing habits are subjective. That begin said NEtflix viewing numbers aren't as good as most people think.

They are essentially becoming a network unto themselves, projects are being pitched to Netflix first because of how artist friendly they are and their original programming deals are rapidly picking up pace as a result. At some point in the future Netflix won't be over the barrel anymore but they need to appease Comcast/etc in the mean time while they lay the groundwork.

Ditching Netflix because you can't watch season 7 of TNG is really silly. As if the big media corps are going to treat you any better, there's a reason people sought out Netflix in the first place. Stick with them, they're doing great things for that whole industry and the value proposition is good. Otherwise well whatever, theres alternatives like Hulu. Sort of.

The original content thing would be great if 90% of their content was good. But it's not. I'm not paying for crappy original content. I'm paying to watch movies and yes TV. I'd go to Hulu but I din't cut the cable to watch commercials and pay for the privilege. Your notion that demanding worthwhile service for your money is "silly" is beyond ridiculous.

I've been saying this for awhile but Netflix needs to stop adding shity originals that no one wants and getting good movies as well as shows on. The only good things they've produced as of late are Beast of No Nation and Making a Murder.

This and the cost increase make the service look horrible.

Or they make the full game, have a few months of solid bwta testing, then release a full product... You know, like how they use to do it?
Yep! So wise thing is to wait and see how this unfolds and then get the GOTY/ complete edition at the end of the year. Hopefully they don't abandon the game halfway through releasing the episodic content.

I'll drive my own car, thanks. I don't want Google deciding to fling me off a cliff to save some asshole who cut me off.

Read the article, it's actually the opposite problem. People are hitting driver-less cars because they are too cautious and often stop to assess situations instead of blindly acting as a human would. But keep driving your own car, to continue your scenario you'll simply get pushed off the cliff by the same idiot who would've cut you off.
Or people are driving too aggressively while distracted by cellphones, radios, GPS etc. This is a major problem in many major cities.

No no there not. If you actually played 1 and 2 or read the backstory you know that's not possible at all. Hell even if you just played 3 and 4 and Skyrim you know it's not possible.

GMG totally screwed up the Battlefront pre-order. Tons of people got keys late, and then those keys didn't even work. Now people are waiting for GMG customer service to do something about it. And of course there are still plenty of people reporting they haven't even got keys at all yet.

DO NOT trust these guys with a pre-order. Personally, I won't be doing business with them again. This was not worth it to save $15. Can't play with my friend for a second night. I should've just ordered direct from Origin.

I've preordered a few times from them and never ever had a problem. I also haven't heard about these "tons" of people who got their keys late.

I've bought quite a lot through GMG and never had a problem. IMO they are just as trustworthy as STEAM.
