I'm wondering if they will accurately model our incredibly pothole ridden roads. No need for offroading

Yeah, no-one's going to be overclocking their top-end Threadripper 2 chip with that Dark Rock Pro TR4.

TBH maybe some new blood might do this game good. It's not really gone anywhere near its potential. In fact I'm not sure if it's made any real progress for years.Reply

It hasn't. And I mean no disrespect to the team with this observation, but .. They were in over their heads. The result would have been the same with any genre, any scope for a game. They just couldn't, and can't develop what they envision. Whether that's down to actual knowledge of code, leadership or discipline, one can only guess. The result we have now after years of "development" is plain as day however.


It's been many days of Zzzzzz.

I'd add 911 Operator to that list. Shows you just how hard it can be when juggling all the requests with limited resources while having to get enough and the right information out of callers.Reply

That's a great shout! I'll check it out and consider it for the list.

Forza Motorsport 7 PC performance review: a PC port in need of a pit stopForza Motorsport 7 PC performance review: a PC port in need of a pit stop

Lots of these issues were present in Forza 6 Apex, and still are there in horizons.
Even simple stuff like the mouse pointer always being shown gives you an idea on the level of the port.
You can get performance boost by using native resolution rather than setting it to 1080 etc.
Also wish I could achieve those frame rates on my 1070. Juddery mess.

They've now gone back on the VIP and it'll work like previous versions. To say sorry they have also gifted cars and credits.

Wonder if the experience will be better than that with PCars1? Felt like it was kicked out then abandoned. UI was not that great and too many little glitches especially with the multiplayer.

Flashy graphics doesn't make a game.Reply

The first game was marketed as the best looking racer with flashy bullshots etc. It turned out to be such a disappointment. I'm worried about this one.
