well somehow the PC masters have invented space to planet seamless transitions. that'll really blow the minds of the console kiddies if this has them. i think it'll also really enhance the sense of exploration, seeing a planet go from faraway point to standing on its surface without any load screens.

Oh God, don't tease me.

I SERIOUSLY doubt that will be in Andromeda, but if it is, holy shit. I may never stop playing it.

Don't worry, Chinese firm, the US will take your copyright complaints just as seriously as you take ours.

That's a LOT of fixes in W3. Dang. I've only got a few bugs, Marlene did indeed disappear in Corvo Bianco for me (eh, not sure what other purpose she served anyway), and my 1st extra skill slot won't unlock in NG+ after mutation (slots 2, 3, and 4 work fine however.)

Only got Aerondight last night, so not sure if it's not scaling properly or not.

I don't really even get excited for these anymore. The last couple have been kinda underwhelming, and for the next nine months there's so much coming out that even IF there was a great deal on the few games I'd still like to add, I wouldn't have time to play it for the next year anyway.

I hope they bring back ME3 multiplayer too. That was so fun.

They had confirmed the same form of mp, only expanded, a long time ago during one of their first announcements of Andromeda. Whether that's remained the same, I don't know, but I assume so. The MP packs made them a lot of money, so I doubt EA will let them drop it.

but in this case it really is all cosmetic. So *shrug, who cares.

bank spaces, loadouts, or boost their XP and credit earnings

I dunno, man, doesn't just seem 'cosmetic' to me.

But is the driving any good? Like I said, I loved the idea of TDU2 but the driving was just okay and that is also the reason why I stayed away from The Crew.
I'm not a sim guy, although I do play Dirt Rally with a wheel and without assists and it is so much fun, but I would like the cars to feel different and not be too arcadey.

The driving in FH2 was pretty decent. Again, it's not a sim, but you could do burnouts and power slide etc, so there were at least some rudimentary physics going on. More importantly, different cars FELT different when you were driving them, and you could feel the upgrades making a difference.

All in all, it's a huge sandbox full of great looking cars and lots of fun, arcadey stuff to do.

Since Amazon gives 20% off preorders, I went with the Ultimate edition.

I played the 1st one. Honestly rather have Forza 6 full.

Ehh, it's all down to what you like in your games. The Forza numbered series is super dry and I don't find it very engaging. I got F5 with my Xbone and was very disappointed in it. You spend as much time in menus as you do racing, which isn't my idea of a good time. Races in the Horizon games require you to drive to them the first time (can teleport to locations once you've been there). The game world is actually something you explore, it's not just shit on the side of the track.

I spent more time play Virus tag in the Forza # series (and having more fun) then in Horizons. In Horizons cars aren't really ALL that defined (more sim meets need for speed'ish/arcade) where as in Forza I could take a awesome little Lotus with amazing handling and off the line power and utterly destroy cars that people picked for just say speed.

In Forza Horizons 2 you can buy a Volkswagen Transporter (aka the Bus), and modify it so that it goes 0-100mph in 4.4 seconds. And then drag race it against people in Hennesey Venom GTs, and beat the living shit out of them.

Winner: Horizons.

Full priced game. Half the roster locked. Season pass. Microtransactions for non-cosmetic items.

No, you fuckers aren't greedy at all. What a fucking joke this game is. Back when this shit was called Evolve everyone in the world was calling the devs out on it.

Look, we've given MS a TON of shit over the years for their 'support' of PC gaming, but they have just announced three (four?) major AAA titles that would have been exclusives last year, and said they are coming to the PC.

Yes, it's a UWA/UWP (whatever) and only on Windows 10, but they ARE going to be on PC, and I think the "buy once play wherever" thing is also to be applauded as a good measure, especially since it will allow mp crossplay. (more controller peasants to frag!)

So, for my part, good on ya, MS.

I gotta give that a dismissive wank, Creston!



... that's fair.

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?

First here is a video showing what I'm talking about.

Okay, that is just fucking stupid. What the hell, Bethesda?

What?? FO3's quests had multiple ways of doing them. You could be an a-hole and all that. In FO4, there's no choice(other than the big main quest choice) and you have to be the good guy.

Granted, FO4 misses a lot of the "you can be evil" options, but in general there's more ways to do quests, and there's no such shit as the quest in Little Lamplight, where the fucking kid refuses to open the gate for you, even if you're the evilest bastard the wasteland has ever seen, and you would have no qualms just shooting him in his little shit face.

For the record, once you got power armor and plasma weapons in Fallout, you would steamroll everything in your path as well. But there it was obviously just 'great writing?'

Edit : Apologies, I thought I was replying to Scottish, not you, Beamer. The Fallout One comment was more directed at him.

Hey, at least you don't find that power armor and plasma rifle in the crater of a bomb that didn't actually explode, all while asking people if they've seen your father, "a middle aged guy"!

Haha, fair enough.

You'll get no argument from me on Fallout 3's writing. It was abominable. I still loved the game, just because the exploration in it was so much fun, but the quests were absolutely fucking terrible. They HAVE gotten significantly better in FO4, though.
