Bonnie Ross, Head of 343 Industries, has announced that the Halo 3: ODST Campaign and other content will be coming to Xbox One’s Halo: The Master Chief Collection, as a thank you to the fans for their support and understanding regarding the issues that the game has suffered since launch.

Ross’ post on Halo Waypoint and Xbox Wire is a follow up to last month’s, in which she apologised for the game’s problems, and said that 343i would “make this right” with the fans once it had dealt with the “issues at hand”.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity update 4 brings fixes and problems

Assassins-Creed-Unity

Assassin’s Creed: Unity has had a troubled time since release. Now Ubisoft has released the fourth update to squash bugs and performance issues.

To explain the big size of the download, Ubisoft commented on what went into building the update.

“Part of the team’s effort to enhance frame rate for players involves replacing and updating portions of the Paris city map where we are seeing issues,” explains Ubisoft. “This explains the large size of this title update (6.7 GB). However, since a large portion of the patch replaces existing files the net increase to the game’s overall size will be less than 6.7 GB.”

For full patch notes, check the Ubisoft forum.

If you have the disc version, you can uninstall, reinstall, and then just download the 6.7GB. If you have the download version, you're going to have to wait for the whole 40GB...

If i had paid for it i would be all over it and finish it even if it was shit. Because i borrowed it im just like "meh, same old shite"

You're still basically in the tutorial section of the game so I'd give it more time because it does get better once you become an Assassin.

Played an hour of it. Its gobsmackingly beautiful at times but is a bit buggy. But the gameplay is just tired for me. I loved AC 2, Brotherhood and Revelations but im just bored with the same old gameplay mechanic. Dont think i will bother with it any further.
It gets considerably better once you become an assassin and the coop missions etc open up. It is still a bit more of the same but you can see they have tried to mix things up a bit

This is now under £20 on cd keys! Played a coop mission with a random last night. Neither of us had mics in but it was great fun. I'm enjoying the game so far, there has been some changes for the better (especially how you upgrade your assassin) though so of technical issues can be a bit jarring at times

I didn't even unlock all the viewpoints.
:o I am enjoying it enough. I think it looks fucking amazing. Technical problems aside the game is very much a traditional AC, which is something I love.
Lostcauz
Finished the main story last night, not a bad game but like it was mentioned in the far cry thread, Unity takes the series backwards. It was good to see less tail missions but there's still too many uninspired missions and pretty much every memory ends in the same way. Can't be bothered with the collecting or the side missions as they're completely boring at this point, I didn't even unlock all the viewpoints.
Pug
Loving the animation, bit more realism. Not experienced too much graphic glitching, it's there but not "OMG THIS GAME IS SHIT" stuff. Was expecting a real mess, but that isn't so. I have it on PS4. Got to the point I become an assassin and choosing gear and colours is an awesome addition. Overall pleased at the mo, don't let the internetz put you off this if you dig AC games.
Mr C

They've took out the modern day stuff? That gives it a few points in my book.
Ditto, massive plus in my book. Going probably get this around Xmas time by which stage they should hopefully have fixed a lot of the issues with the game
MoBiUGeArSkIn
Yep, appears to be gone. I've just seen cutscenes so far, where the modern day stuff is just interrupting the memory sequence. I liked the meta stuff, it was especially fun in Black Flag.
Craigimt

MoBiUGeArSkIn
Technical issues do blemish the experience. Frame rate drops being the biggest issue, I think. Still a blast though! Played for a good few hours, went through the first 2 sequences. Even with the hiccups though, I still think this game looks staggering. The leap between this and previous games, in terms of visuals, is immense. I think the core gameplay has seen improvements. The navigation is better but the complexity of the world and all the additional animations therein result in the occasional awkward transition. Combat is definitely better and presents a challenge. Lost and I played coop earlier and it was heaps of fun, even if our attempts to play properly diluted into merciless killfests :lol: Looking forward to playing more. I'm bummed that they've pulled out the modern day meta stuff though. So far, that's just relegated to cutscenes.

Hmm..... I'm quite enjoying this so far. Who'd have thunk it?

Well....it's all very well saying you can't criticise it if you haven't played it, but the reviews are there for you to make an informed decision if you would like to buy that game, there's plenty of information out there. I'm sure all the issues will be patched, but it doesn't stop it being the same old assassins creed game with a few new mechanics bolted on. I read quite a lot and watched quite a lot, I hadn't planned on getting this anyway, but I was up for being proved wrong and it might made it on my Christmas list. It's a shame.

Oh I agree. The embargo think was a bit of a piss take though. But I will probably still enjoy my time with the game, technical issues aside. For me Alien Isolation was a low frame rate riddled buggy mess.
MoBiUGeArSkIn
There might well be a heap of technical issues, can't say for sure. Alien Isolation was meant to be full of them too. I just get fed up with the gaming press and the people who fill the bottom of those articles, like they were waiting for the next target to show up.

Mobi, I am still looking forward to this, as I like you even enjoyed AC3, but you can't ignore the obvious problems this game has!
MoBiUGeArSkIn
Tezcatlipoca
Have you not seen the negative reviews?
Yeah, there are twice as many positive, coming from decent websites. Metacritics own harsh score system classes this games response as "generally favourable". The best part, for me, is that much of the staunch criticism comes from people who haven't experienced the game for themselves. How do I know, for example, whether these issues raised their head after... 10 hours? This week, 343 took flack for Halo MP not working. Apparently, some people tried to get online for "6 hours"... Who does that!? Gamers are just mental.
Born2beSlicker
The embargo was set hours after release, which is dangerous because there's many impulsive people who buy things because it's available due to temptation. It's a bad sign when websites don't get review code or if they do, they can't publish reviews until after the game comes out. Then there's also how the micro-transactions weren't made available to the reviewers so some of them weren't even aware that they exist. Glitch compilations are common (and sometimes very interesting) but they're normally months/years after the game is released and the hardcore community has been able to break the engine in some capacity and learnt how the game works. You don't see them hours/days after release with them being so blatant unless it's a technical disaster. Thankfully, Ubisoft has pledged to clean the game up. What's disturbing is that the game was in this state and they said "yep, ship it".
Tezcatlipoca
Have you not seen the negative reviews?
MoBiUGeArSkIn
Even so, they were already written. Would a few hours have changed them from positive to negative? What is that guy implying? That, had the critics kept playing, their opinion on the game they finished would have changed?
Tezcatlipoca
Instead of midnight Pacific / 3am Eastern as is apparently usual (see below), it was embargoed until 9am Pacific / noon Eastern. Several hours after any midnight launches, several hours after any digital downloads would have unlocked and become un-refundable. Second Kotaku link from my post:
To my surprise, I discovered late this weekend that I would be ready with a review of Unity, in time for Tuesday morning. I'd played enough of it. I double-checked the embargo, assuming it'd be the now-standard 3am ET of release day, at the latest, and saw it was actually set for nine hours later.
I know that Ubisoft tends to have launch-day / near-launch-day embargoes anyway, but from the above and from various comments I've read by other reviewers, this *was* "unusual" as they are not usually *this* late.
MoBiUGeArSkIn
Come on, I can go on YouTube and find glitch compilation videos for virtually every open world game. Why is this so special? And the review thing... The press had the game ahead of release and the reviews went out on the day the game hit shelves. Not unusual. And what would have happened to the reviews at that point? They were already written. Most of them positive. Did Ubisoft pay them all off not to mention how broken the game is? Or is the internet exaggerating again...
Tezcatlipoca
Unity's issues have made it to the BBC: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-30040613 ... complete with an Ubisoft rep using the "populated worlds" excuse :lol: :roll:
Tezcatlipoca
I read the Kotaku review earlier today. http://kotaku.com/assassins-creed-unity ... 1657368877 Really reinforced my view that this is definitely one to miss. I also like that Kotaku has now said that it "will not accept post-release review embargoes tied to early review copies". http://kotaku.com/regarding-post-releas ... 1657482663
Born2beSlicker
Damn, this is pretty bad in execution. I really wish Ubisoft didn't annualise every franchise and have 3-10 teams of hundreds of people working on it, as it makes their games feel like a feature spreadsheet by people building a car rather than a work of art. The Ubisoft open world development plan is clearly wearing out and the rate they're cranking them out now is going to make it burn out much faster than it should.

Harry
If you watch the giant bomb quick look they play the pc version with great results even though it's on a monster rig. They then switch to Xbox one and you can definitely see a difference in the console version. It was the same with lords of the fallen though, stuff just looks better on a massive PC. I thought the Xbox one version was extremely dark too, probably not calibrated their equipment i guess. Xbox has always had high contrast.
Lostcauz
I've noticed the locked loot chests and they're absurd, I don't want to be forced into using a second device to unlock items. Played a bit more last night and the drop off in frame rate during big crowds was immediately noticeable. Bizarrely early indications are that it performs better on XBO but no one is a winner when they both have technical problems. http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digit ... e-analysis I haven't seen chests that point me to the XBO store that Harry mentions, just says to use the companion app but I probably need to play more.
Harry
I've watched people play this extensively on Live On Playststion and nothing interest in happens. Just random killing and roof top running. It looks absolutely gorgeous though it's sad I already know these game well enough to know I'll hate it. As I have watched it extensively I can confirm that there are chests you can't open and when you try it just directs you to the Ps Store.... Also there are clothing items you can "hack" unlock with real money. mKe no mistake there are teams of people everywhere working on how to chop stuff up and resell it to you.
MoBiUGeArSkIn
Can't be sure whether the real money thing is true, but the app is free. And most people have the means to access them. Never understood why AC3 gets a bad rep. It was well received critically and... Hell, I loved it.
patrick_bateman
The game could be flawless and the best game ever but i will never buy it. Some guy over at gaf said he tried to open a chest in the game and a notice popped up saying "You have to log into the companion app to open this chest" and also he also tried another and it popped up saying he had to spend real money to open it. Fuck Ubisoft. Parts of gaming are a complete mess right now, thank fuck im back to playing my older systems. Its a joy.

August on XBO/PS4
Are you feeling that uncomfortable “Minecraft” withdrawal from not being able to go all next-gen with your favorite blocky life simulator? If so, great news: “Minecraft” creator Mojang has just announced that “Minecraft: Xbox One Edition” is coming to the Xbox Live Marketplace this August – and if you’re a current “Minecraft” enthusiast, it’s only going to cost you a mere $4.99*! Get ready for even bigger worlds (with scenic vistas), all of your favorite features from “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” and the option to import your saved game data and your beautiful, one-of-a-kind “Minecraft” world onto your Xbox One. That’s right: You don’t have to start from scratch. You can just keep going, right where you left off! That goes for most (but not all) of your downloadable skins and texture packs, though not all of them will make the jump. “Minecraft: Xbox One Edition” will debut at $19.99. But here’s the best news for current “Minecraft” junkies: If you’re moving up from “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” (either the disc or Xbox Live Marketplace version), the Xbox One upgrade will run you a mere $4.99. And, even better, you can upgrade at this price for a full year from the game’s release! So, get pumped for the sure-to-be-awesome “Minecraft: Xbox One Edition,” coming your way this August. And if you’re not already one of the 12 million-strong fans of “Minecraft” on Xbox, what are you waiting for? *Users must own the retail version (disc or digital) of “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” in order to receive the upgrade price of $4.99 for “Minecraft: Xbox One Edition.”

Telltale presents Minecraft: Story mode game

minecraft_storymode_logo_650px

After the success of The Walking Dead, Wolf Among us and the recently released Tales from the Borderlands, Telltale is taking a stab at another game crossover. 

Minecraft: Story Mode is a TellTale adventure game based on the world of Minecraft. Though Mojang and TellTale have said that it won’t be an origin story for Steve or explain the world of Minecraft in a canonical sense. It is just a cool narrative game with the Minecraft world used as a set.

Episode One is set to be released at some point in 2015 on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One, along with other platforms that you can find TellTale games on.

Check out Mojang’s blog and TellTale’s blog on the game for more information.

If it's anything like the XBLA trial, it would be a 15 minute timer so you can explore the tutorial world. Mind you, the trials for DLC are unlimited but lack saving.... Either way, totally wish the XBO version would release today and not for £114.99.

For those who never bought it. Technically you could rent the game for free on Boomerang or something and get the discount. It's just checking to see if the game is on your gamer card after all. £4 is an insanely good price for a game that could last you hundreds of hours, if you click with it.

I was going to give it a miss but for £4 May as well give it a go (even though I hardly played it on the 360 :oops: )

August on XBO/PS4
Are you feeling that uncomfortable “Minecraft” withdrawal from not being able to go all next-gen with your favorite blocky life simulator? If so, great news: “Minecraft” creator Mojang has just announced that “Minecraft: Xbox One Edition” is coming to the Xbox Live Marketplace this August – and if you’re a current “Minecraft” enthusiast, it’s only going to cost you a mere $4.99*! Get ready for even bigger worlds (with scenic vistas), all of your favorite features from “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” and the option to import your saved game data and your beautiful, one-of-a-kind “Minecraft” world onto your Xbox One. That’s right: You don’t have to start from scratch. You can just keep going, right where you left off! That goes for most (but not all) of your downloadable skins and texture packs, though not all of them will make the jump. “Minecraft: Xbox One Edition” will debut at $19.99. But here’s the best news for current “Minecraft” junkies: If you’re moving up from “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” (either the disc or Xbox Live Marketplace version), the Xbox One upgrade will run you a mere $4.99. And, even better, you can upgrade at this price for a full year from the game’s release! So, get pumped for the sure-to-be-awesome “Minecraft: Xbox One Edition,” coming your way this August. And if you’re not already one of the 12 million-strong fans of “Minecraft” on Xbox, what are you waiting for? *Users must own the retail version (disc or digital) of “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” in order to receive the upgrade price of $4.99 for “Minecraft: Xbox One Edition.”

The Crew review

rsz_11thecrew4

Ubisoft’s The Crew is the most ambitious take on the driving game in a long time. Set as an always-online open world MMO-racer that spans the entire continent of America, you and three friends can take on races and challenges to become the best Crew on the streets. It’s a shame that it’s resulted in such a car-wreck.

Exploring the United States can at times be a blissful experience. Driving coast to coast through five condensed states displays what The Crew wants to be remembered for. Finding hidden collectables and data towers helped me see some breathtaking scenery that allowed somebody who’s never been to the USA to appreciate the variety in its landscape.

You guys have no faith! Once the servers have been populated with "thousands and thousands and thousands of players" all of these issues will magically disappear.

Both Hallben and I are playing this, as we have review codes. Did anybody pick it up? As we're aiming to form a crew tonight or tomorrow. I can't get over how ambitious this world is, even though right out of the gate it stumbles hard in executing an actual fun game.
patrick_bateman
I played it a bit of it yesterday, its nowhere near as bad as some are making it out to be.
Born2beSlicker
The eta was hot trash. The full game however seems more of a shrug. Not offensively bad but not a patch on Forza Horizon and will be forgotten in a few months. Which sucks as the technical achievement is bewildering.
Craigimt
So it's better than the beta? Playing that put me off getting this.
Born2beSlicker
It is better. I can't say it's "good", though I'm only 3 hours in. The rubber banding is still horrendous and is the biggest offence in this game.
Mr C
The words rubber banding have been used a lot by people describing the game. I love the idea of the game but can't be doing with unfair AI in a racing game
Born2beSlicker
Yeah, the AI is a big fat cheater. They have god-like reflexes. No matter your level, the opposition will always stay with you, so you can't leave them in the dust. If you're far back, you end up having a hyper drive attached and you slingshot back into the race. Some mission races feel scripted, as certain crashes or jumps just feel too coincidental to be authentically cool. The best thing is the PvP as its more authentic but still not 100% genuine.
Born2beSlicker
You can expect my review in the next few days, most likely Wednesday. However, after half dozen hours and about half way through the story, I just rage quit for the first time. Why this game sucks in one video:
I'm still on this mission! It's clear from the start of the game the cheating AI and physics are going to screw you over but this has been the single worst experience I've had in the game. Which is infuriating because the open world driving is actually pretty damn sweet. Exploring the USA for fun is actually a lot of fun. Then your destination is a mission and you're forced to eat a huge shit sandwich for scraps of XP/Bucks.
Born2beSlicker
My review is up. If you were annoyed that my TWA review was tiny, well this is the opposite of that. This is also the first racing game I have ever reviewed, so that's kind of weird as I never expected to do one.
Tezcatlipoca
Good review :) Shame about the game ;) You've actually managed to be harsher than Polygon for a Ubisoft game! :lol:
Born2beSlicker
I actually expected to give it a 5 or a 6 before I started writing, as there's stuff about the game I really enjoy. It's just ruined by so much shit that it's unsalavagable. Thinking about it critically and seeing it all typed out, I realised just how negative it really is. It sucks, as I want to really like it. I can see what Ivory Tower wanted to do but then it's splattered with Ubisoft's spreadsheet design that strangles it.
Tezcatlipoca
Having actually been on a road trip in the US, that aspect of it did interest me, despite me not really being one for driving games... It's just a shame about *everything else*...
Tezcatlipoca
Oh, and speaking of Polygon... I think the last Ubi game they had a proper review copy of was AC Unity, which of course their reviewer slated. After that review, and the subsequent embargo opinion article, Polygon bought its own copy of Far Cry 4 (positive review) and bought its own copy of The Crew (negative review). Made me wonder whether Ubisoft decided "fuck Polygon" after the Unity stuff...
Born2beSlicker
What the hell has YouTube done to my video?! It's drunk! Fixing now. Edit: Fixed.

A lot of websites didn't get FC4 and nobody got The Crew before launch. I doubt Polygon are blacklisted. For the record, our FC4 and Crew codes aren't from Ubisoft PR. I'd imagine a lot of codes used for reviews aren't directly from Ubisoft.
Mr C
Good review in which you have tried to be fair about the game. The pluses of the game really appeals to me but the dodgy AI would annoy me to much. It 's a game I'd still like to try but will wait for a big price drop first
Born2beSlicker
That's the funny thing about it. I'd like to return to this game if it gets patched some more to be a bit more balanced. There's potential for a somewhat competent driving game, even if it doesn't rival Forza Horizon. In its current state though, anything above £15 is too much.

..,and no doubt my iMac will eat this alive at 60fps in 1440p despite it being 'not for games' but you'll never ever capture that X factor feeling consoles have. I can't put my finger on it but it's why people pick consoles rather than get games for next to nothing on Steam, with way better visuals.
You can't really say that without statistical proof considering Valve is a private company though they don't release sales figures but everything always points to the fact millions every year buy those games and enjoy them. There is no X Factor there is only what environment you're tied to the most. If you like Consoles fair play but I really don't get the need to shit on something that you obviously don't care for. PC has its audience and when a developer actually takes the time its always shown to be best simply because hardware is always changing there is more horses that can push whats on screen. Anyway there is room for all formats but consider this PC isn't just for games its for everything from business, graphic design to everything else in between it plays games too :geek: . Its not in a war with consoles it doesn't need to be lol.

This game is fucking glorious on PS4. Watch Dogs looks like a last-gen game in comparison.
Harry
It is indeed. I just wish it controlled like a modern game. I also wish the characters were more likeable. The dialogue is extremely abrasive.

This game is fucking glorious on PS4. Watch Dogs looks like a last-gen game in comparison. In fact, this game puts to shame many games for various reasons.

..,and no doubt my iMac will eat this alive at 60fps in 1440p despite it being 'not for games' but you'll never ever capture that X factor feeling consoles have. I can't put my finger on it but it's why people pick consoles rather than get games for next to nothing on Steam, with way better visuals.

Rumor: GTA V Already Runs At 60FPS On The PC, “Max Payne 3″ Team Handling The PC Version I have no doubt that this will be the case Max Payne 3 is by far the best PC port from Rockstar in years Mark (Born2BeSlicker) saw it running on my older hardware and it ran pretty damn well. Looks to me like the PC version is the one to wait for :hi5: Can't wait to return to this game and see it as it was really meant to be seen.

Is it anything to do with your parental settings?
Thanks for the tip, but alas it didn't work.
Harry

Yes I do. Got it with the console. I can still play the game fine. I just show offline while doing so.
Sephiroth360
Never had that problem, only thing could think of is do you have PS Plus? think you need that to be able to play online?
blackwatchEoEB
I know this is an Xbox part of the forum, but I see a lot of you have PS4s. I'm hoping someone can offer some advice. I'm having a strange issue with this game on my New PS4. I purchased the PS4 with GTA 2 weeks ago. Everything seems to have set up as it should, even my character transferred across for my Xbox 360 account with no issues. The issue I'm having is that whenever I go on the GTA Online, my PSN profile shows as being offline with a red circle/cross. It only happens with the online mode, not the single player and no other games. I've filed a ticket with Rockstar and Sony and received the generic responses. I've re-installed the game and latest patch, everything is up to date, I've forwarded ports on my HomeHub3, I've place the PS4 in the DMZ, I've even tried turning off the HomeHub3 Firewall, I've tried to create a new character for online. But I still get the same issue of showing offline. All other features are available, I'm just not showing online until I reset the console. This is an issue with friends inviting me to games etc. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Has anybody else had this with GTAOnline or any other games? Thanks.

This game even though its a HD upgrade can be extremely pretty at times, I was pratting about in the Sea Dodo on multiplayer and was about to land when the sunset caught my attention http://gameclipscontent-d3003.xboxlive. ... e06cc419c2 Also practice makes perfect for roadkills in a plane! http://gameclipscontent-d3004.xboxlive. ... 6527ceccee Craigs view (in first person too). http://gameclipscontent-d3002.xboxlive. ... 8d6ca92c50

Agree with you about the FPS mode not having the finesse of other games. It feels like there's too much recoil with the guns.

I absolutely adore Trevor. One of the best characters in games for sure. Los Santos is an amazing achievement and puts Watch Dogs' Chicago to shame.
Harry
I met Trevor last night for the first time. That was quite an introduction! This game looks pretty amazing out in the desert. I have to say, I think this is the best in game world ever created. It's so thick with interesting stuff.mit looks natural yet you know it was hand crafted over many years.

So I tried to play this online and sat in party chat while I quickly did the tutorial ...."I'll just do this and then we'll meet up online" 90 mins later , can't i fucking skip this tutorial. WTF this is a single player mission. WHY ARE YOU TELLING NE THIS LET ME PLAY THE DAMN GAME. Absolutely infuriating. :x
Due to the issues during the last gen launch I had to play that mission about 5/6 times. So consider yourself lucky.

2013 GTA Online character transfer problem: PS4 patched, Xbox One should be fixed tomorrow. https://support.rockstargames.com/hc/en ... GTA-Online
Born2beSlicker
If you haven't played GTAOnline this year but are considering upgrading to PS4/XBO, log in on 360/PS3 first and get up to date. It seems to be having issues with people who are very out of date trying to transfer over.
Harry
I know it's a GTA game but my god does the language just bludgeon you over the head. I'm all for it but it's a little much here. The dog sex thing fell flat with me too, I even rolled my eyes. Is this a sign of my age?
Craigimt
I've changed my controls to the FPS config. It makes left analogue your run button. @Slicker, I didn't get all the achievements straight away.
Born2beSlicker
Craigimt
For anyone that likes achievements: if you transfer your character over from last gen then it'll give you all the online achievements you had. I'm guessing it's the same with trophies.
I got a bunch but didn't get all the ones I earned, including "do the introduction". So I'm level 49 but never did the intro. :facepalm:
Harry
Yeah this is pretty great. The controls are still like playing twister for me. Why can't we have a complete custom map option. I just can't stand having to press X to run. Why not just use the analogue transition between walk and run like every other game!! Shooting while driving is impossible too! This was great fun though...
I plugged my shit into the tv direct which by passes my blu Ray player and I'm probably just making it up but it seems slightly more responsive, either that or I got used to it. EDIT: the motion controls you can turn on work really well for things like the motorbike.
Craigimt

Born2beSlicker
You should get used to it soon enough. Each car has its own handling which can be upgraded at the mod shop to make them more responsive and faster. I'd recommend lightly holding the brake as you come to the corners, as drifting at high speeds makes you swing out at a wide angle.
Harry
Yeah, throws my driving off though. It like playing with a 50ms lag
Born2beSlicker
I wouldn't say movement is laggy, more that it's weighted. Characters and objects have a sense of weight because the physics are so well realised. You can't just snap into place like other games, like other Rockstar games, you need to naturally move into the position you want.
Craigimt
Is there? I was expecting it to be for completing the story in first person.
Harry
The game is impressive and does indeed look nice. Unfortunately I think rockstar have continued their tradition of awful control schemes. They just do not make sense. Also I finding movement and driving slightly laggy? It could just be my setup , I'll have to see tomorrow but there is Definately lag when steering I'm just not sure if it's the animation. It's been a long time since I played GTA. Last time was probably a year or two ago on my android phone.
What's wrong with the controls? I'll admit that aiming seems harder when driving in first person.
Born2beSlicker
There's an achievement to play in first person for 15 hours. WELP! Guess I'm going first person.

Think it'll be the new year before I pick this up. Waiting the year has just proved to me that I can wait, an extra few months it's going to make the difference. Maybe if this had come out before MCC it would of been different. But I feel like I've got plenty of gaming to get through.
Ditto. I almost started a new game on the 360 yesterday, but decided to hold off. I'll probably pick an Xbox One up around March. Hopefully the price might have dropped under £300 by that point.
There are some silly deals going around. I saw one Xbox one with 2 games for 300. I saw another with 5 games including gta and cod aw for 399. Ps4 can be got Dr 300. They are throwing these consoles at you right now.
Yeah. Thing is, I've got three or four projects to close before Christmas, then I'm planning on taking two weeks off over Christmas to relax. I know myself too well. If I get a console, I'll spend the best part of those two weeks playing and then wonder where the break went. :lol:

Storm Island expansion released for Forza Horizon 2 on Xbox One

Xbox Wire and the Forza Motosport website have announced the release of the Storm Island expansion for Forza Horizon 2 on Xbox One.

Downloaded the storm island expansion today. Was a little pricey at £15.99 but there does seem to be a lot of content. Played for a short while earlier and it looks absolutely stunning, they really do have the weather effects nailed down in this. It's very much an offroad/rally experience so if you enjoy that I'd say it's highly recommended.

The third bucket list is available now.
Forza fans, your Bucket List in Forza Horizon 2 just got longer. Today’s content update for Forza Horizon 2 on Xbox One adds 15 new Bucket List Challenges added to the game for free. Bucket List Challenges have proven to be an enormously popular addition to the Forza Horizon series – the most popular event type in the game after career races, in fact! – and today’s update brings more of these automotive adventures to your Xbox One. Some of these new Bucket List challenges feature DLC cars, including cars from the Falken Car Pack like the Alfa Romeo 4C and the Lamborghini Jalpa. Here's something you might not know: You don't need to own the DLC packs or the DLC cars themselves in order to do these challenges! Even if you don't own any Forza Horizon 2 DLC, you can hop right in any Bucket List Challenge right away and take that car for a spin in the event as many times as you like.

Joined the club yesterday. Not a massive fan of racing games normally but this is superb. I love the open world nature and side quests, was happy to see I had missed an xp board and had a 20km drive to go back for it. You know you're onto a winner when that doesn't feel like a grind. One gripe would GE the lack of songs per station, listening to Horizon XS and gone through each song numerous times. Will give online a bash later this week, would welcome a few on the friends list who play this so please send me an invite.
Craigimt
I'd say this is a Forza game in name only. I love both versions, although I prefer Horizon. I prefer open world racers.
Phlashman
I don't think it's that much of a good representation of the mainline forza games, largely those have bored me. Horizon though has all the fun that Forza Motorsport lacks most of the time. But then for me Horizon is almost the perfect racer.

this is my first taste of a Forza game and I'm very impressed. I got the xbone on friday and i've not really touched anything since Forza 2 since I got it. Joined the BXB club last night, would be good to meet up for a road trip soon

Well, finally got it today. And yeah. It's pretty much the perfect racer. There have been a few moments in the built up areas where I've got a really strong PGR feeling. They've really nailed that Sim/arcade sweet spot, again and refined the already great original. Really addictive "oh just one more" becomes "might as well play another", to "I'll just get the boards around this area" then "just this feature race". Seems like they've got load of content in there too.

why do people who play freeroam never enter races? its the only thing spoiling it for me. why go online and then just piss about doing your own thing? online road trips are the only way to get decent numbers but then you have to play the silly non race games that im not a fan of :cry: we should have a bxb night

I'm having probs with steering the blipping' things. What settings should I have? I'm always correcting over steer and it's spoiling it a bit for me. I'm a force-feedback wheel racer and find it hard with sticks.
Different cars have very different handling. I have my favourites where the handling is just perfect. All of the cars can be tuned though to correct over steer. It may seem complicated but it's fairly easy to do. If you can't be bothered to tune you can download others tuning set ups. Have a look in the descriptions about what type of tune it is (ie. Speed, handling etc) before downloading

I'd have to echo that, infact I'd go as far as to say I think it's the best racing game ever, all formats, it just nails the sweet spot for me, great visuals, great handling, great environment, great cars, great online, it's just amazing.
Born2beSlicker
Finally sitting down with the demo. Wow, I'm very impressed. I appreciate the hell out of Forza's technical ability but track racing gets boring fast for me. This is arcadey enough to be fun as well as respect Forza. It's also fucking beautiful. This is a racing game I can get into over Xmas. Playground/Turn10 did an amazing job finding that sweet spot between simulation and fun.

I've been in awe at some of the lighting/visuals, in particular sunset/sunrise. The game is incredible and smashing through fields is bloody brilliant.

Wish they'd implement custom soundtracks in games like on the 360, only like listening to my own selection in games. Always turn off any in game music tracks.
Mr C
I think to be honest it's the case with most online racers that dicks try and spoil it. Still playing the single player so haven't tried online yet though. I have to make a special mention about the soundtrack which has to be one of the best in any game ever. There are so many good stations which are perfect for different moods. Loving XS and Pulse at the moment but also enjoying the classical station when the mood takes me :)
