Got this for free with my Ryzen CPU, and it's basically a jankier, AI-director-less, not as fun Left 4 Dead 2 (or Vermintide, if that's your flavor). At least The Division 2 is pretty sweet, and that's the usually-a-C-bill Gold edition, not just base.

Bah! If it doesn't start with Road and Track Presents and have delightfully bad 90s postage stamp videos with stiff narration, it's not a true Need for Speed game!

Porsche Unleashed is probably the best driving game in the NFS series, but on the whole it's always landed on the side of "arcadey bullshit", and at this point half a dozen developers have had their go at the series, to varying levels of success. GRID or Assetto Corsa have a similar "real, but softer" feel that PU managed to a magical degree.

On balance I like the 2010 Hot Pursuit best out of the series. It's Criterion (of Burnout fame) laser-focusing their brand of vehicular violence on a pretty open world, now with shiny licensed cars and more focus to the main progression (DJ Atomika was taken out back and shot). It hadn't yet been taken over by the wannabe-RPG stat creep of every modern open world game, instead it was a game that let you just drive but also gave you plenty to do when you wanted to evade (or take part in) a pursuit with spike strips, EMPs, and helicopters.

Apparently Epic's payout is so immense it's going to take them three months to count the money.

I can still remember saving up so I could get a 3dfx add-on card (12MB RAM, yeah!) to play MW2 in shiny mode. My little sister liked watching and her favorite thing was to say "NumLock em!" which unleashed all weapon banks at once and put on a pretty show.

So if Forza/Horizon proper are an RC car, this is basically a slot car? Thrilling. I'll pass, and by that I don't mean "move to the other lane to overtake".

Bah, don't tempt me by making me think we were getting another Rise of Nations game, an RTS that minimized unit/army babysitting without being dull grand strategy either. Haven't had an RTS grab me like that since, and rarely before that (Dark Reign/Total Annihilation).

This looks...well, utterly unlike that, but also pretty fun in its own right. Probably worth putting on my Wishlist for the eventual sale or "Oh, my buddy's actually put some time into that one" purchase.

It should be noted that Xbox Game Pass allows you to play any of the crossplay titles on your PC, and that's downloaded and run locally, not streamed like PSNow. With a 14-day trial and $1 first month I paid barely over a dollar a week for ten weeks to play Forza Horizon 4, one of the most joyous and exuberant driving experiences I've encountered in decades of gaming.

Edge was such a disaster, I can't help but imagine the movie scene where Satya Nadella stands looking defeated with a gas can in hand, then throws a match, kicking up flames that light his face in flickering orange-yellow. Then the reverse, and over his slumped shoulders we see a towering notched letter 'e', fully alight and with small flaming chunks and embers already falling off and distorting its shape.

Broken, slow, and lacking basic features from the start, I get that they wanted a new browser with Windows 10, but it needed another year of behind closed doors testing and development before it was ready. For some reason, I still hold on to the faint hope that Microsoft will start testing its products on humans (before release, that is) as the number of engineer-minded screw-ups that'd be caught quickly by an average end-user is truly and consistently bonkers.

Can't wait to hear how Ajit Pai shamelessly spins these new fees into being necessary for "broadband innovation" and "freedom" and "remodeling my lake house"...wait, don't think he was supposed to let that last one slip.

It's the same basic game as NetEase (Blizzard's Chinese publisher/partner) used for Crusaders of Light, Endless of God, and...Kung Fu Panda 3. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8hK1UFzyBg

Fans are right to expect more, and to be frustrated that this pablum is what they're getting "from Blizzard".

The problem is that very few VR games are actually using the medium to do something unique, and in most cases are giving a lesser set of activities and options than the gaming experiences we're used to. Superhot VR is one of the few I can think of, because the gameplay flows well with your natural reactions and the visuals are very screen-door-defeating. Being able to swat bullets, crouch, and aim a gun around a corner without having to "process" your actions is a trip, but it's still pretty limited, and hardware has a few generations yet before it's truly user friendly.

The least worthy Burnout to remaster. Remaster Burnout 3 ffs.
Came to say this. Burnout Paradise was generally less fun than other entries in the series, and the "open world" is really just a menu system that requires you to drive from option to option, otherwise it's dead and pointless (and DJ Atomica was /the worst/). Resurrecting Burnout without bringing back crashes a la Burnout 3 would be like resurrecting Julia Child and having her make you Mexican food, sure it'd be fine but you're under-utilizing the unique thing that led to all those fond memories in the first place.

So bad they had to release an update to disable the Bixby button, because it existed solely to be pressed by accident.
