...

Just heads up to those still doing FH3 Forzathons.

Thanks but I'm done with Forzathons in FH3 as I'm on with FM7 now.

 

How was Orville overall?  I started watching ep1, but I've been too busy for much tv or gaming and I'm way behind on so many shows.

 

...

 

What if you logged in during the post show?  I forgot all about it with Psych: The Movie on!!!!  

The Orville is a good Star Trek alternative. It's a comedy show but it also follows with drama and sci-fi elements/ topics. Def recommend catching up with the first season. They already renewed it!

 

DMC HD collection remaster. Let's be honest. This is why we don't see more games backwards compatible. Because nobody would by these remasters like Bulletstorm and LA Noire for $50 bucks a pop if they were backwards compatible. That's why. MS have a working 360 emulator all they need to do is flick a switch to get any game working on the One so it has less to do with technical issues than it does other things.

 

Yeah It's not that easy as flipping a switch. Far from it. Turns out it's an extremely complicated balancing act:

Borderlands maybe, it definatly has a better item system, but the game play is not a smooth as Destiny.  Gears is some of the worst mechanics ever IMO.  I cant play that game for more then 30 min without turning it off.  

Everyone is entitled to their opinions here but I'd say you're way off on this one.

 

At a quick glance I'd say Gear of War's gameplay mechanics is infamous for the:

Cover system

Roadie Run system

Active-Reload System

Drop in & out 4 Player Co-op

& of course Horde Mode.

IDK i think destiny 2 is the best shooter in terms of just fun to play.  You can deny that the gameplay, graphics, mechanics, and sound is top notch.  As a hobbyist game, its not the best currently, but I do believe it will get there at some point.  Is it worth running through the story, even if you dont do the endgame raid and nightfall PVP it's still worth it IMO.  If you can get at least one other person to run through it with you, it's even better. 

Skip Destiny, play Borderlands 2, Gears 1, 2, 3 & 4, hell ME3 multi even.

 

Was thinking about buying Far Cry 4 but never have played any of the other Far cries before. Does it follow a story or can I just jump right in?

Debating between Far cry 4 and the divison through amazon credit

Like all iterative forms of entertainment, Far Cry 4 improves on the formula they came up with with Far Cry 3, which improved on Far Cry 2, which some would say was better or worse than the OG Far Cry lol.

Far Cry came out and was a game about open ended mission structure. Which that meant was that you could tackle a mission with a vast open ended world going about it however you wished. Far Cry 3 added in the amazing story/infamous villain angle & the watch tower's from Assassin's Creed Ubisoft infused into the series. Explore, find the tall vantage point, explore some more and expand your gaming territory. Far Cry 4 copied it again but you had a larger playfield along with flying vehicles at your fingertips, expanded outposts & Elephants! I might be a bit biased as I loved each entry into the series, even Far Cry Primal - which initially I was like but but Far Cry is all about modern day weaponry lol.

I'm with Spectrum and my downloads were actually too fast and swamping the modem so I had to throttle the Xbox to 90 Mb/s out of a 120 Mb/s connection.

A bit of a few gems in that pile.

If only there were download kiosks where you could plug in your external hard drives and download everything quicker (for people with crappy bandwidth limits and speeds, or do away with the bandwidth limits). Some game stores might already be doing this, if there is nothing stopping it from working. Sony / Nintendo, GameStop etc... I want 20% for this idea, Microsoft I want half. p.s. I can only wish an idea I'd talk about openly online would actually pay me for once... lol. dream on.

You can use a USB flash drive to download the OS update for the Xbox if you're having an issue downloading the update for your Xbox, which has happened to me in the past, so we need this option for games as well. Totally agree.

 

Edit: Ha, Fuck, I unlocked the #18 Toyota M&Ms Sprint Cup car which can do 180 easily on the Miami NASCAR track. Oh well. All the Forzathon challenges are done lol.

^ The great thing about Reach was one of the one things some didn't like, you weren't Master Chief. You were an ODST character, "the Rookie", and you had to play the game differently because you weren't a tank like you are when you play as Master Chief. It also has a beautiful soundtrack to go along with the game. I enjoyed the campaign as the flashback segments were a fresh new take on the Halo formula and it reminded me of reading a Halo book tbh.

This is also easy to say coming from someone who doesn't have an X1X or a 4K TV. I just don't see how 4K gaming is more important than exclusive games that aren't FPS-oriented.

Try Free Play mode. Choose Rise of the Supercar. Rent the 1993 McClaren F1. You should hit 180 easily.

Ha, believe it or not I got it with a Racing Index Mazda MX-7 but it never registered 180, only came up to 178. I then used your suggestion and it finally registered the 180 mph. Thanks

 

Did the required tasks and unlocked the '69 Mustang Boss 302 FE!

Hmm, initially I was like wha? The more you look at it though, yeah the better it looks actually.

I'm in for Seasons.

 

We really need to have the DLC from the older games just dropped to free or at least heavily discounted. I think they simply forgot a lot of older 360 games had DLC when they think about sales/

what-if-i-told-you.jpg

They want you to play the discounted games and then pick up the full priced DLC.

And you can turn those assists off if you wish. Problem solved.

You basically backed up his point with that statement. You can play with or without all or nothing with assists, or play with just ABS and braking line, it's all up to preference.

 

I was a little weirded out when I was racing the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS and while holding down the gas would slow down on places of the track that the assisted brakes thought was a corner or a part of a curve. LOL, went to options right away and turned that shit off. I'm pretty sure they don't even have that for Forza Horizon titles but I may be wrong.

 

However I think we're going down the wrong road, pun intended, when comparing Forza Horizon and Forza Motorsport. The original question was if a car guy or a gearhead would like which one. Car guy = Motorsport.

If someone is a "car guy", would that like the Forza Motorsport or Horizon games more? I was hoping to get a couple copies of Horizon 3 from Expertzone so we can play together but I guess they had a limit of 1. So I was looking at either H3 or Forza 6, 7 is out of my budget.

It used to be gearheads would enjoy the Forza Motorsport series as it was track and car customization/design/upgrade focused. Of course you'll have more of a simulation for Motorsport but you may have assists on depending on your racing preference. I found GRiD to be a good balance of physics/arcade racing but Forza pretty much starts with the simulation base and then adds on assists afterwards.

 

Yeah, I think they've come a long way with the Horizon titles now so you could say the developers have also targeted gearheads for FH3 as well. Feel like while Forza Motorsport titles are the pinnacle of racing titles, Forza Horizon 3 has so much to offer - more bang for your buck so to speak - that's your best bet atm. There's circuit racing, open world collectibles/discovery and point to point races which unlike the previous titles in the series allow you to go off road as well as zoom down the paved highway. Online is a good time getting together with friends and strangers alike too. If you're looking forward to shaving off a few seconds each lap, tuning your vehicle to be in the best performance index or spending several hours working on a livery for your car than you might want a Forza Motorsport title. If you want to race around, smash through things, go fast and work on your Scandinavian Flick while also discovering a new open racing world than I'd say go with a Forza Horizon title.

You can't capture screenshots? Is that game issue across all platforms?

 

Is not an "issue". 2K implemented the restriction so the games wouldn't be spoiled to those that have never played a Bioshock game.

 

Would be nice if they restricted it to certain chapters / levels, or certain sequences. It's 10 years old, but I'd still hate to spoil any of the major twists for someone who never got around to playing the first game. The setting of traps and Big Daddy takedowns, especially with the revive chambers disabled, are the kind of thing gaming captures exist for.

There were some pretty dramatic combat fights in Bioshock, totally damming not to document them over the years lol. There were some pretty cool moments "running and gunning" with the rails system in Infinite as well.

 

It was clearly done for that reason, but I still think it's unwarranted. Those who want to avoid spoilers can simply not watch the clips. It makes 2K seem a bit out of touch considering how huge streaming, sharing, etc. is today.

See, Nintendo has a Spoiler tag, you can implement into any upload, therefore if Bioshock/Microsoft implemented this it'd still give people the freedom of showing off their heroic feats. Nintendo was lagging behind in many areas but this one they've been in-front-of-the-line with, so to speak.

Well those are two of the system's best games.

 

Even so you've heard it from everybody, even if you're not into racing games, Forza Horizon 3 is a lot of fun and a great game.
