I can't see this come off the ground with the pricetag involved on both the VR and the PC hardware necessary to run games properly. I can't see publishers willing to invest in making VR games, if only a relative handful of rich elitists are your target group.

I'm tired of the 'it's too expensive' argument.

1) Technology always get's more capable and cheaper over time. Look at smart phones, models that went went for $300 plus a contract a couple years ago are being given away for free.

2) Gaming is a hobby, and like all hobbies, there are different levels of commitment and investment. If someone likes golf but can only afford miniature golf and plastic putters, that doesn't mean $800 drivers and 18 hole golf courses shouldn't exist.

It's called early adoption. Google it. This is all part of bigger movement. The impatience of "it needs to be better today" is ignorant consumerism.

Please don't take it personally, your perspective is very common.

Well... I actually watched the whole reveal last night... and that simultaneous multi-projection tech is pretty neat... can drive 3 monitors with 2 angled in and no distortion / warping (perspective is corrected).

That might be worth the upgrade for me from my GTX 680 with only 1 monitor.

1080 Reveal

Go 51 minutes into the video and watch till 58 minutes.

Thanks for that.

I bought two additional monitors for triple screen gaming a couple years ago. Couldn't believe how distorted it looked with my SLI'ed cards. At the time I didn't understand why it looked terrible, thought it was more game related than hardware. Pretty neat stuff from NVIDIA to fix that for one card.

I stopped playing TF2 when it got all crazy with crafting, but the thing that stands out the most is the player count.

A. Overwatch has a much lower team size compared to TF2, and this means, which means newbs, AFKs, and poor teamwork is more obvious and can be a significant disadvantage.

B. Teamwork is a MUST in Overwatch, it's up there with Counter-Strike IMO because your team could be completely outplayed without coordination, aka voice comm.

C. Adapting to the other team by changing classes throughout the match is also required, your can't just pick one class and use it for an entire night, without potentially undermining your team.

I will not waste time on a racing game that has no support steering wheel. I am not even talking about mod support or other features... Play a racing game on my Playseat with a gamepad is ultra retard.

I will paid $10-20USD if MS made this with a proper wheel support (using DirectInput not XInput) and available in Steam (plus other digital distribute that others care). But not this half-a$$ sh!t even if it is free...

How do you launch a racing game with zero wheel support?


Simple.

Step 1: You hire a bunch of monkies who fell off their trees one time too many (i.e. really dumb monkies).

Step 2: You name your company Microsoft.

It's much worse for sales to be labeled "best enjoyed with a wheel", because that market is niche.

Looking at the top 100 games on Steam, the simulators leading the way are Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator, not competitors to to Forza like Project Cars and Assetto Corsa (which don't make the list.) Yes, I know that lots of sims do not require or even support Steam.

What is high on the list is Rocket League, and that casual crowd is more of a target for M$ than iRacing or rFactor.

I'm a fan for Forza, Turn 10 have produced technically great titles on Xbox, and I think Forza's presence on PC is good thing for the long term. They can bridge the gap between casual and sim racer, a free albeit gimmick of a launch isn't that bad of a way to kick it off.

I'm curious to see where Apex is by the time (or if?) the next Gran Turismo game comes out for PlayStation.

Patience.

There's a lot of ignorant and well-justified criticism from the PC-sim crowd via forums. Taking baby steps with this is clearly a smart choice by Microsoft.

I'm REALLY considering upgrading to Windows 10 for this game...been a Forza fan for almost 10 years and always wanted them to bring the series to PC. I skipped the XB1 release because my wheel that was compatible with the 360 would not work with the new Xbox.

I did play the Forza 6 demo on a friends XB1 and HANDS DOWN the XB1 controller is magical with driving a car. The impulse triggers are used fro gas and brake, so when you spin up the tires and loss traction under heavy acceleration, there is vibration feedback from that trigger. Same thing for the brake when you lockup wheels under heavy braking. And with the puddles, you can feel each moment of lost traction through impulse triggers and know exactly what is happening with the car.

So if anyone is serious about this on PC, for sure pickup an XB1 controller for the experience.

It has an elaborate rock-paper-scissors-Spock-liazard feel to it.

I played against some experienced opponents last night, clearly they went through the closed beta, and my team of strangers was destroyed each time.

One of the issues is communication. Blizzard titles usually don't require voice comm for casual modes, but with Overwatch, it's very difficult to win without some attempt at coordination. Other 5vs5 shooters require extensive team talk in order to counter the opponents tactics. It may talk a slight culture shift for the Blizzard fanbase to do that with random players in 10 to 15 minute matches.

I played for an hour or two last night, hard to comment on balance because there are so many damn characters and abilities. Lots of news not doing things properly, players with more experience really stand out as usual. I'll have to play a lot more before I can comment on the meta game.

I don't fully agree with the Ultimates, some are too powerful,l and some players focus too much on getting the most out of their Ultimate, rather than using all their other abilities to consistently influence the game.

"Play of the Game" gets a nod from me, helps new players learn, and will also push make the gameplay evolve faster because great plays/tactics will be less of a secret.

It also looks like it will play well on a console too...

Wonder how much of a shit show Forza is going to be.

Was never a car game person until the Forza series.

Me too, a lot of sim racers have never played the series and shit on it because 'console' even though it was way more fun than most sims on the PC. It may be simcade, but they were the best at it.

I skipped the XB1 release because of how much the PC sims have grown. And now with Forza on PC too, I can skip the console and use my computer.

Unless, as you suggest, M$ fucks it all up! *curses*

If the rumor of a BF 2142 followup are true, it sounds like Activision is trying to beat them out of the gate...

Was gonna say this does seem like they're trying to take the wind out of the supposed Battlefield announcement this week. Especially if it turns out to be a 2142 sequel.

I'm not sure if it matters...both camps have a lot of fanboys who are disinterested in one or the other. regardless of what that franchise shows off.

Anyone swayed by announcements (like today's) will also likely be swayed by the ads and marketing that builds up towards the launch date...which is why these guys dump huge sums into that.

Assuming the WW1 rumors don't pan out I'd love to see a return to Vietnam now that modern technology can do jungle & forests realistically. I miss the music playing from the vehicles.

Battlefield: Bad Company-Vietnam perhaps?
Would be nice to see the re-spark of the Bad Company 2 vibe.

Put me down as another vote for Bad Company 2 vibe.

I'm hoping the next game will support 128 players but I doubt it'll happen.

The problem I have with this and where I think they started to go wrong with BF3 and off the rails with BF4, is that an INDIVIDUAL cannot influence those big public game servers like one could do in Bad Company 2.

In BC2, I could have a truly heroic moment by somehow saving and MCOMM station from blowing up at the last second, or getting a plant when there was almost no time left. And the entire server then descends into frantic chaos towards the objective.

With 64 player servers or larger, either:

A. The map is simply too large with empty space, and zones of combat are disconnected with significant travel time required to get there.

B. There end up being 10 snipers on the other and ANYONE caught in dead-mans-land that isn't moving around like an erratic butterfly gets drilled in the head.

There's a balance between squad and individual tactics, infantry and vehicles, heroics and stalemate.

And Bad Company 2 hit that perfectly, compared to what has become of the franchise.

Er, they announced a very clear 'THERE WILL BE NO WIPES, DON'T WORRY, PLAY ALL YOU WANT' at E3 last year... I'm not aware of any indication that they've gone back on that.

From the store page: A note from the PC Gaming Show at E3: we will NOT, repeat NOT, being wiping stats and achievements during Early Access or at any time, so go get 'em!

To me, that doesn't say XP. So....

Your point? Call of Duty's demographic is almost entirely made up of 18-30 males. It's the archetypal "bro" game.

I think it's 10 to 25.

Don't expect this franchise to go anywhere or slow down: there will always be tween/teenage boys full of angst and an unwillingness to do homework who are overdosing on Mountain Dew and leftover stuff crust pie from Pizza Hut.

Ah, the joys of stereotyping complete strangers with different tastes...


You're missing my point.

Call of Duty is fucking sweet to any kid who's allowed to consume gun violence. Keep in mind that the game is rated for M for +17. And there are always more and more of those kids, above and below that age, who want the game because, A) gun violence entertainment isn't diminishing, and B) natural population growth. COD is the juggernaut in its genre and will forever be. I've bought a few myself and quite enjoyed them.

And the rest of my comment is a joke full of half truths. Some people prefer Dr. Pepper over the Dew...

How has no one mentioned this yet? Call yourselves #MasterRace?

The game is CAPPED AT 60 FPS. On an engine level. No way to disable it.

I played one round, went 21-3, then immediately uninstalled.

Fucking console GARBAGE. it's 2016. anyone who buys this game for PC needs to be publicly humiliated.

Whaaaaaaaat?!

I assumed the new id Tech engine would have more flexibility since the negative feedback from Rage. I guess not. So just same shit, different pile.
