Over 70 thousand people liked the trailer video on youtube for this.

So either is a giant joint troll going on, or there are there are at least 70k people excited about this game.

Pretty frightening.

Bus simulators have their niche and I can imagine them having a ETS2 vibe to them to some people. I've no idea if Bus Simulator is their thing, I think Omsi is the most popular sim.

For some reason I thought FCP was going to be a standalone thing like Blood Dragon and I'm definitely going to wait for more word of mouth before splashing out £40.

It's interesting to see an AAA game in this sort of setting. Just not £40 interesting without a good game attached.

havent seen Fury Road - i heard that Mad Max is more of a side character compared to Charlize Theron, who is the main... it sounds fucked up

It's about Max's role in someone else's story in a similar way to Road Warrior and Beyond Thunderdome.

Last year it was Boyhood that people spent much more time talking about how it was made than how good the actual film is. This year it's The Revanant. That worries me, I don't care if an actor lived in the wild with nothing but a loincloth for 18 months or if they sat in a heated studio in front of a green screen, I care about how good the film. These things, like method acting and practical effects, are a very rough indication of quality, not a guarantee.

I thought Fury Road was excellent. There's no hard and fast rule for how to do art but their mix of CG-tweaked practical foregrounds and more heavily CG'ed backgrounds worked superbly.

anyone tried and got results for vr ready or not, and have their specs too would be awesome.

Mine was at the top end and hovered around 110 - 120fps. GTX980, 16 gigs of memory, and an i7-4771 Haswell (3.9GHz). Download size was around 1.5ish gigs, not the full 4 gigs. Does seem rather large for what it does.

I got 120 FPS steady on GTX970, 16GB, i7-3770 3.5Ghz, Win10 so something's holding you back. Running anything else that is intensive?

Thanks ViRGE, that makes sense.

I get a steady 120 FPS at high fidelity but it appears to be in approximately 720p which means I'm not sure what the point is. I suppose they can't require people have a >= 1440p monitor to run this test but I wonder how useful the result is at that resolution. Perhaps this is why it runs at 120 FPS but refers to 90 FPS as required, although this would be a rather clumsy way of accounting for the difference.

I'm going to assume those game references are trolling/easy publicity unless I see a reason otherwise, although HL3 exclusively for SteamVR would cause quite a reaction

My complaint of this game is that it is just ridiculously easy to succeed. It offers nowhere near the challenge of SimCity4 (the last real sim city).

What were your guys take on the difficulty curve? I know its quite popular and well received here at Blues.

I found it to be similar to SC4 except that I'm wise enough not to place every service building at the start, which made SC4 seem difficult at first. I use Difficulty Tuning to make it a little more difficult.

At present, I find myself running very low on money until I reach about 10K population, then finances are very healthy until 50K - 100K, at which point I've gotten sloppy with my budget and haven't been placing service buildings as efficiently so I'm roughly breaking even.

My Logitech S510 keyboard is on its way out. What do people recommend as the best keyboard with laptop-style keys? I'm not bothered about extra controls or macros but wireless is important.

It's not a "map and theme editor", it's a "map-theme editor". They've added the ability to make environments and texture packs to customise how the world looks. The map editor has always been available.

Now's the problem with having hundreds of mods and assets. Some modders got early access so their mods will be compatible but not all.

Releasing a multiplayer game without online support? That would have been a terrible idea. First impressions matter!

It's really no surprise but it's not healthy for a franchise to rely on existing fans. However it's only just out, so a large proportion of the players will be XCOM players who were counting the days until they could get their hands on it.

I wonder how these graphs will look in 2 years' time.

the next expansion is paying tribute to one of the most famous branches of the US Army: the Marines!

I really hope, for their sake, that was a joke. Otherwise I fear for the safety of the dev team.

Enlighten us foreigners what you mean. Isn't the USMC part of the US armed forces?

It's part of the armed forces but not the army: Marines are navy.

Population growth goes stale around the 115-120k mark and you have to focus on building the Eden project to make any significant population gains at that point.

I got my main city up to ~300k population but then I didn't touch it for a few months and now when I load the city it's just too overwhelming to get back into and remember all of the things I was trying to do... like why are there entire highways and transit systems missing in the middle of my city you drunk bastard! So... I'm probably going to start a fresh one after this patch comes out.

I've got my install so bogged down with mods (approx. 30) and assets (~250) that performance goes to hell over about 130K. By that point I have opened the whole map and built what I had envisaged so when someone (typically 1Runar) puts an interesting map on the workshop, I'm happy to move on and start over.

Without these mods and assets, I would have gotten bored long ago. Also, Chirpy Exterminator.

So everyone will get it on March 10th, then? Since I doubt there's a way to play this without Origin.

Access is their subscription service. It's where people just pay money directly to EA every month, which I think we all know has been EA's dream all along.

I've been keeping an eye on The Long Dark. I'm wary of Early Access but it is getting good reviews including the most recent ones, where complaints about a lack of updates can be red flag.

The Climb looks cool but not something I'd buy hardware for either.

They're really making a point of how it's not like their previous piece of junk. I've no idea if this will be a good game but at they are at least pretending to listen.
