Newegg isn't the Newegg anymore, they were sold to the Chinese. My credit card company flags purchases from them as potentially fraudulent.

Try pcpartpicker.com. They do price comparisons across multiple sites.

700 cars would be great for Grand Theft Auto game but in a racing game you only care about maybe 25-50 of them, if that.

No Toyota cars either, stay classy Toyota.

That's the whole point, you will CHOOSE 25-50 (given that the game modes encourage you to use many different cars its more like 75-100) out of 700+. Of the other games he mentioned there are 25-50 cars total in the entire game. You have no choice, its linear as shit.

The entire game is based around choices, same as Gran Turismo used to be (not sure about Sport, looks like a linear PC racer). Not to mention all the customization choices that dwarf whats available in any of the games mentioned.

That's the difference, and Project Cars/Assetto Corsa and any other racer on the PC never come close to approaching that depth of these games. I will give Assetto a nod for having a much more mature driving model then any Forza/GT ever has.

That "bullshit" is what separates Forza from PC racing games in general. Campaign mode & buying/collecting cars is a big part of the draw that few PC racing games attempt.

Right, because Grid didn't have a career mode or the ability to collect your season winning cars. Or TDU. Or MCLA. Or The Crew. Or tons of other racing games. Forza Motorsports is no longer a "motorsports" game so the excuse of "those games had street cars in them" won't wash. Racing Polaris ATVs around Spa is "motorsport" now? Or Isettas?

Oh, let me guess, Forza is different because you can customize your driving suit!

700 cars

Despite Whole Foods flaws (i.e. mackey, the drumpf of grocery) it was a pioneer against Mindless pesticides, processing and antibiotic usage in food products. Not to mention, globally supporting lower carbon footprint agriculture and helping to establishing international guidelines.

Oddly they never seem to advertise their budget line 365 and now seem to be building a different chain for it.

They might have started out that way but have since slid into the same corporate slime pit that all the other grocery store chains operate under. Their form of exploitation is a special kind of sleaze though, asparagus water anyone?

Amazon knows what they're doing, harvesting data and money from people with more money than brains.

So I looked that up, one store in Cali did that. Corporate response was to shut it down. I suppose you could say they were testing the ability to cheat people but it sounds more like a California hipster running a store then a scheme.

Because I wouldn't use Win10 as a primary OS unless its gutted of Microsoft's spyware. If the games are going to require it then it's boot to play and shut down after.

How is Win10 free to register? I see it going for $92 on Amazon. You can run it essentially forever without buying the license without personalization options but I'm not sure about their store.

The only reasonable solution is to buy a cheap SSD solely for Win10 gaming. I wonder if you can buy/play their games from the marketplace without registering the OS.

I disagree. I have no doubt that if it was not episodic there would have been smaller levels, less objectives, and less time overall to make the game what it is today. You would probably be left with a Hitman that had 60% of the current games content at best if it all came out as a single package.

They made mistakes and tried to fix them after the damage was done (always online, online unlocks) which hurt them, but the game that they made was great. Its failure being attributed to the episodic aspect is unfortunate because we might not see that format again.

What about Shroud of the Avatar. They raised 10 million for some shitty alpha MMO and they are apparently starting a phase 2 kickstarter to keep the funds rolling in.

Most of the Vive exclusive titles utilize room scale and the tracked controllers. Until touch comes out for Oculus they cannot support this.

You can't change the settings in Horizon to match the sim aspects of standard Forza. Even with full sim settings in Horizon its still an arcade game. I actually can't use my wheel in Horizon, its made by the same studio but the way it controls is so bad I have to switch to controller.

I'd say there's about a 75% chance if I use a terminal, I'll get stuck to it. I understand that's common enough to cast some serious doubt over their QA effort.

Disabling clipping between Dogmeat and the player would save some annoying and unnecessary deaths as well.

This is a framerate bug, limit your frames to 60 to fix it.

Why doesn't Bethesda just release some actual in game photos with UI and videos of gameplay. They seem to have something to hide with this game and these photos show why.

This will take some UI overhauling and high resolution character mods from the community to fix - I bet the long distance detail is terrible as well.

I wonder sometimes if Bethesda plays the mods people make and think to include some of that detail and popular style (SkyUI) in their games as options if your computer can handle it. Or do they just do the bare minimum for consoles and let the PC folks sort it out...

Dying Light 2 may be too ambitious for PS4 & Xbox One.

Wow, so it hasn't even been two years yet, but next gen consoles are already becoming last gen.

There's hope in this headline. It could mean that DL2 might be a PC exclusive.

More likely they will scrap all those ideas and bring it down to a homogonized console appropriate level with smaller levels, simpler geometry and less tech features all around. Out of the two choices guess which one is more likely.

Apparently they downgraded the graphics from the original E3 showing. The speculation is that once they discovered the hardware limitations of PS4/Xbone they were forced to downgrade the complexity of the games environments and effects. This shouldn't affect the PC textures though - I would still expect high resolutions there.

I can't even play this game, I bought just BF4 and whenever I tell it to join a match it pops up messages telling my to buy the DLC's. It seems that 90% of the matches require some DLC to join and they make sure I know that by wasting my time until I relent and pay them. That and trying to match up with a friend of mine is a pain in the ass through Origin. I just gave up trying and moved on to other games.
