Been playing the Crew Motorfest Beta. Much better than the first two games. Basically Forza Horizon Hawaii. Mimics almost everything about FH. Driving doesn’t feel as good IMO but it’s still decent. Also has the boat / plane races so that will set it apart a bit.

Overall pretty good and worthwhile FH stand-in if you want a different location. And good for PlayStation owners that don’t have FH.

 

The driving in The Crew 2 felt terrible so I hope it's a huge improvement.

I'm currently banned there for uhh..."locker room talk".

 

Went a little too heavy on the Shaq-Fu's?

Let me be the lone dissenting voice in the current sea of negativity against Automata. Suppose it's not for everyone, but I thoroughly enjoyed it going in fairly blind. Maybe it's been built up too much and people's expectations are too high.

Spoiler tagging the multiple playthroughs and endings thing as well since I think this point gets overblown. Still trying to be vague enough about it but only read if you don't care to be spoiled in some way.

I enjoyed the game as fun hack-and-slash with great atmosphere, cool designs, and some inventive/surprising gameplay. I would recommend if you like JRPGs or Japanese-style weirdness in general.

 

As for the supposed philosophical brilliance or how it's supposed to blow your mind and destroy your emotions or whatever... eh. I did the multiple playthroughs and all the endings, and it's same type of JRPG surrealism that any number of games since Xenogears have trafficked in. I didn't find it to be particularly unique in that way.

Yep. This.



I mean WTF?!?

 

It's clear that for whatever reason, Sony has the FTC eating out of their hand. FTC didn't know the first thing about how the video game industry works, they went straight to Sony to find out, and they're willing to believe whatever Sony tells them.

I just spent $500 on a PS5 to play Final Fantasy. So it's pretty funny to me to see people raging over needing an Xbox to play Indiana Jones or Starfield. That's the way of the world, if you want to play the game, buy the console. Or don't.
