I've been wanting a game similar to Test Drive Unlimited 2 and people in a thread a couple of years ago told me that what I'm looking for is Forza Horizon 2 (since The Crew is pretty terrible due to bad driving... why you would fuck up something like the driving in a racing game is beyond me).

Is Forza Horizon 3 going in a similar direction? If that is the case I'd need to upgrade to W10... which I really don't want to do.

On the other hand I did upgrade to Win XP back in the day so I could play X2.


The Horizon games are some of my favorites across all genres, and certainly best in class in racing/free roam!

Agreed. I had a TON of fun with Horizon 2. My wife at first enjoyed just being able to drive around in it (and wrecking MY cars!), but eventually she wanted to be able to discover her own roads and set her own speed trap times etc, so I created a new profile for her so she could have her own settings. Not much later she was actually doing races.

It's a really good and fun racer. It's not a sim, don't go looking for actual Forza levels of simulation in it, much less something like Assetto Corsa, but the open world and the cool stuff to do make it well worth it if you like driving games.

When he says that, he means next year. My money is on next fall/Xmas. It's already been 6 - count them 6 - years since Skyrim, no way the next one is going to be several years off, that's simply too much money to skip.



4.5 years. Skyrim came out on 11/11/11.

My guess, Witcher 3 came out and they were like "Shit, we need to really up our game"


I'm sure they took note of many things in Witcher 3 (hopefully especially on the quest writing front, though FO4 has significantly better written quests than Skyrim), but again, it's a ridiculously unfair comparison. Skyrim came out in 2011 and had to run on the shitty Xbox 360 and the even shittier PS3. Witcher 3 came out in 2015 and had to run on the PS4/Xbone. It's a night and day difference.

The only real issue I have is how game time is linked to frames generated, which is really weird for today's standards.

Just out of curiosity, how do more modern engines deal with it? I know engines have an internal tick rate, but isn't that just the same thing?

Well duh. Was there seriously anyone who thought Bethesda WASN'T working on another Elder Scrolls? Skyrim sold like 35 million copies.

But yeah, it was five years between Oblivion and Skyrim, I expect probably 8 between Skyrim and ES6. Fallout 4 has got them tied up for the moment. I think ES6 will get full steam ahead probably early 2017, to be released Xmas 2019.

Sigh

As for HD, I'm looking for something in the 2TB range. SSD's on the other hand have changed a bit with this new generation of hardware. Other than the regular old SATA drives, there are two new types supported, M.2 and SATA Express. I don't see any SATA Express drives for sale anywhere and M.2 seems kind of pricey, so I'll probably just stick with an SATA SSD.

Note that M.2 is just the slot/port, and has nothing to do with the bus that drives it underneath. So you can get a SATA (3) SSD that fits in an M.2 port. The nice thing about it is that it just slots into your motherboard (be careful though, they come in B and M connectors and if your mobo has a B connector and you get an M drive, it won't fucking fit. FUCK the goddamn asshole who thought of this horseshit), and thus doesn't need separate SATA and power cables to be routed.

An M.2 SATA 3 SSD isn't that much more expensive than a regular SATA 3 SSD (like 30 bucks or so), so I'd actually advise just getting the M.2 one. Now if you want the monstrously speedy SSDs, you need to get the NVM M.2 PCI-E SSDs. those are the ones that read/write at 2000MB/s. (in certain tests. In most scenarios it's more like 700-800MB).

Giving people a copy for both when they buy either is a smart move. It drives adoption to either platform. Probably not a ton, but it's one of the smarter things they've done with W10.

My problem is I want nothing to do with win10 OR the bone...thank god for steam and gog, I guess.


Yeah I wouldn't switch to 10 or the bone for Gears of War 4 either.

How exactly is this game going to work when it's so 'cloud dependant'?

Only thing I can think of is that they are going to launch this with the updated Xbone.

Don't be silly, Helf. ITS TEH CLOUD MAJICS! IT WILL WORK BY MAJIC! OF THE CLOUDS!

Maybe Walgreens can also sever ties with the imbecile executives who were so fucking desperate to sign a deal with Theranos they never even bothered to verify a single fucking claim that scambait company made.

Oh what am I saying. Of course that'll never happen. BONUSES ALL AROUND!

"We admit we fucked up royally when we specced out the original Shitbox One. It was so underpowered it was the joke of everyone, everywhere. So now we're fixing it. You as a customer, however, are still fucked, since you'll still have to buy it full price."

Or at least that's what I'm assuming. It'd be nice if Sony and MS did a GOOD upgrade program, but it seems unlikely.

The few things I've seen about this make it look amazing. Of course, most Ubisoft games look amazing in trailers...

I got a good feeling about R*...not totally positive, but a good feeling.


Eh, whatever. MS announced Forza Horizon 3, and after the STUPID amount of fun my wife and I had playing that game, I'm already stoked enough for the day as it is.
