V8 (Though I am slowly coming around to both of Ford's EcoBoost V6s)

The Ecoboost isn't as good as people tout it to be. It isn't all that fast and the gas mileage SUCKS! I am averaging 16 mpg.

(I own a 2013 Ford F150 Limited with Eco)

I don't know about the F150 eco, but my '15 Mustang with the Ecoboost is fantastic. Plenty of power, and even going 80-85 on the highway (with plenty of switching to Sport mode and flooring it for overtakes) I average an easy 30mpg. If I put it on cruise at 70, I get 33-34mpg.

It's a lot of fun. It's not as charming as Horizon 2, but there are a lot of fun races to do, a lot of cool cars to get, and it's fun to drive around in it.

The whole "customize everything" was a little lacking, I felt, and the hire and fire your friends is just a lame bullshit gimmick which essentially boils down to you getting a few % bonus on XP and cash earned.

Thank you for feedback Creston; I'm down loading right now. I assume you're playing the PC version? How well does the X-platform work?


Actually, I just played the Xbone version. The PC version was rumored to have a bunch of glitches, and it's more relaxed to sit on the couch and play it on a big screen, and it runs fine on the Xbone. Haven't tried the PC version yet.

the amazon prime savings don't apply to the digital download option ?

Thought that was towards physical only, unless they changed something recently?


Correct. Which means that it's cheaper to buy a DVD case (which Amazon has to ship to you) which only contains a Steam/Origin download code than it is to buy the download code directly from Amazon and bypass the physical case and the shipping.

I'm sure it makes sense to SOME genius over at Amazon.

Maybe those app developers should test their apps in test environments first then.

News Comments > 10 Million Play The Crew
1. Re: 10 Million Play The Crew Nov 4, 2016, 10:57 Creston
 
10 million in total have tried it, sure. I mean, it was free on the Xbox, free on the PC. People will definitely give it a go.

But actual people playing was maybe a few hundred on the xbone.

That said, it's a fun, though flawed, game. For free, it's a no-brainer.

One of the most-anticipated releases of the year is here

but sadly, to get Modern Warfare remastered, which is packed in with Yet Another Bog Standard Call of Duty, you will need to buy the latter to get the one you really want.

It looks nice, I will admit that. I watched about five minutes of 'gameplay' from that video, however, and I have to say it also looks boring as hell.

But eh, for free.

I'm not even a huge sports fan, but I'm kind of hoping they put out a box set of the series as they've done in the past. Quite the nailbiter...


It's already an Amazon best-seller



I'm thinking it might be this one, since it's 8 discs? But there's no real description yet...

Right in time for xmas, I see...


There are always like three or four different ones. Some include the ALCS/NLCS games of the champion as well. I think the one I linked is literally just the 7 games of the World Series and nothing else.

I have two sets from the Cardinals' last two championships, and it's a few games of the NLCS and then all the WS games and the celebration afterward. I think they were $29 or so on release.

Something about a murder and a daughter?

Did you play the first one? It's pretty clear what they're referring to, I think?

"We’re working very hard on making sure that is an extremely deep and engaging offering."

So it's going to be deep and engaging, while also being playable on consoles?


By deep and engaging they mean that it'll have shitloads of DLC that you will have ample opportunity to buy.

People REALLY need to stop buying these Season Passes. It's showing incredible faith in companies who have done nothing to earn such faith; quite the opposite really.

Depends on the company. The season pass for Witcher 3 was a fantastic deal.

True. The season pass for just about every Ubisoft game has basically been garbage.

I also like that this thing is now just 40 bucks. They don't even bother with the "It's 40 bucks worth of content, but you can get it for 30!" bit anymore. It's just straight up "three missions and some suits. 40 bucks."

In 2018, Ubisoft's season pass will basically just be a guy coming over to your house and spitting you in the face once every three months.

Beyond the upgraded graphics fx and 64 bit exe, there is NO REASON at all to play this.

The 64 bit exe is the only reason PC players need. No longer having that 2.8ish GB limit for your mods is a gift from Alduin.

I just made the minimum specs, but once I upgrade to Windows 10 with DirectX 12.0 I should get awesome framerates and terrific colours.

That made me gigglesnarf.

In any case, very excited for this. Need to check GMG if there's a good deal on it.
