    Yeeeah, quite frankly, Turn 10/Microsoft can p*ss off for all I care. Real shame since I very much enjoyed Forza Horizon 3 and their previous Motorsport titles, especially the 4th one, but I can't bring myself to support this greedy behaviour in any way shape or form.

    Built from the ground up for micro-transactions:

    Destiny 2 also looks quite micro-transtastic.

    Like I always say: they'll continue selling whatever we continue buying. We vote with our wallets: every pre-order & purchase is a vote that says "yes, give us more of this." If we want better, we have to stop throwing money at worse. So there's 2 more games for me to vote against by not purchasing them.

    #NeverPreOrder. It's outrageous that consumers have to BEG game companies to simply make games that reliably function properly. Consumers do NOT buy video games to waste their recreational time doing the unpaid work of a paid professional tester. It's nonsense to imply game companies have no obligation to deliver games of consistently reliable function quality just because "it's not easy & nothing is perfect & you can't please everybody." Company decision-makers listen to consumer spending, not consumer feedback - they don't care if it works properly as long as it sells enough, and every purchase is a vote of approval that helps fund more of the same. #VoteWithYourWallet

    Anybody know if F1 2017 has the two hour rule in it? I just did a 115 minute race at Singapore without any sign of a clock.

    Also, a rather bizzare incident. I was 40 seconds behind Vettel when the SC came out. I followed the delta time, then when it switches to "catch the car behind" I got 2 drive through penalties for exceeding 10 car lengths. Mate, I'm 40 seconds behind driving flat out, give me a break! Had to go back to a save and do it again.

    The safety car is a complete mess. Managed to get 6th in a Sauber at Monza because a lot of the AI had to serve penalties for what you were screwed for, illegal blocking and overtaking under the safety car. The rain also helped i suppose...

    There were moments Jeff kept telling me i had permission to overtake the car in front but the OSD was telling me to stay behind them! 

    I've also had races where the AI decide to drive into the back of the safety car and end their race. Maybe they were just putting themselves out of their own misery.

    I've just done some browsing through the forum and there's a patch coming which should sort a lot of it out, so I'm not posting a bug report until after I've tested it. Interestingly, Grosjean in my last race got 4 5 second penalties for ignoring blue flags and Sainz got 2.

    By far the worst thing during a safety car is the restart. If you are mid pack and they all slow down, you turn into a ghost and they all just overtake you. The worst track for it seems to be Mexico.

    In my last race, Stroll wiped himself out after trying to force his way through me. I overtook him at the last corner on the pit entry side but obviously he wanted a change of tyres. Bloody youth of today

    Nice I can now record videos on my Nintendo Switch, welcome to the 21st century Nintendo. It’s only the last 30 seconds, but it’s a start.

    Edit: Not quite 21st century, it’s only supported in a few games, Fifa isn’t one currently, which is a shame as I’m scoring some cracking goals. Hopefully EA add support for it.

    Must admit I'm really liking the look of Star Wars Battlefront 2's SP

    Bought Gran turismo sport, the graphics are amazing but the game doesn't have any cars older than 2009 except for 80s model group B Audi. So no classic cars which is a real shame.

    Battlefront II looks so great visually, and the campaign stuff is no doubt going to be good but the whole loot box stuff in multiplayer is just awful, are you getting it on launch sj?

    yeah I am I'm mostly interested in the single player stuff though I'm not interested in the MP. Gameplay wise it looks like it plays a lot like MEA in SP and I enjoy Andromeda's combat. It's one of the main reasons why I'm still playing it.

    Probably for the best you're not interested in it, can't see EA changing much between now and launch in terms of the multiplayer. Really disappointing what they've done with the multiplayer considering how much potential there is there :(  It's pretty much the reason I would have bought it...

    yeah it's the main reason why I stayed away from Battlefront 1 no SP. I liked what I was seeing graphics wise though as Frostbite is a beautiful engine and given how it handled Battlefield I knew it would look great for games like Mass Effect and Star Wars type games if done right. Wasn't too sure at first about Dragon Age at first when I heard Inquisition was going to use it but it worked out well. So it's certainly not just showing how pretty it is but how versatile as well especially given EA's sports games like Fifa are using it too now. It's taken a little while to get it where it needs to be to handle these games but I think they're getting there. Perhaps my only criticism is that faces do look a little cartoony from time to time but that aside I think they've done a good job with it.

    I once followed the delta time thinking I was safe and then it randomly added 5 tenths to a second at the very end of it, giving me a penalty.


    So I crashed out Massa as a response, caused a SC and won the race because I pitted. Take that.

    Really enjoying Destiny 2 on PC. It looks so much better than the console version and playing at 60fps is so much nicer. The fact that my 980 can max the game and get 60fps most of the time at 1440p shows they put a lot of work into the game. The graphics are a lot better than most games, yet my aging GPU keeps up.

    It’s a great week for games for me, as MARIO Odyssey is out Friday  :D

    I probably will play it gain once the expansions come out.
