    The Crew 2

    I don't agree. There's a world of difference between some of the cars in the Street Race category, for example. The handling and performance can vary massively, even with identical upgrades fitted. Add in the bikes and you've got even more variety. I've been playing TC2 on and off for a couple of years now, and never get bored.
  2. I struggled at just about the same point you're at now. I was getting a little bored with the pattern of getting to a new area, some enemies appearing and needing to be taken out, then scavenging for every last item you could find. Then the game just got better and better from this point, in my opinion. You're a long way from the end, but don't let that put you off. There's so much good stuff to come.
  3. I finished this in the early hours of this morning, having played 2-3 hours per night since release. I was fortunate enough to be able to avoid all of the leaks/spoilers, and only ever watched the very first trailer, so it was all completely fresh to me. I loved it. I had a slight wobble with the repetitive scavenging about 10 hours in, but it quickly turned things around and was an absolute roller-coaster ride from then on. The stand-out section for me was the bridge sequence with Abby and Lev (not sure if I'm spelling that correctly). Climbing the tower, across the bridge, down the other side ("Fuck this building!"), etc. Just so well made, and absolutely thrilling from start to finish. There were so many great moments though. Fuck... making your way through Haven. I don't remember experiencing anything like that in a game before. Now I'm going to read some stuff (like, this entire thread, for example) and watch some videos. Oh, and I know we don't really need to choose sides, but Team Abby all the way.
  4. I just started creating one, but then decided against it. It's too easy to have the game ruined, and at this stage everything would need to be in spoiler tags anyway. Happy for somebody else to do it, but I won't be reading just yet. Just going to have to bite my lip about *REDACTED* and *REDACTED*. And that's only the first few hours! Fucking hell. This is brutal.
  5. Do we need a separate spoilers thread? I want to talk about things I've seen so far, but no way I'm risking putting them in here.
  6. So, so, pretty. A couple of hours in, and absolutely loving it. The combat seems way smoother than the original, and completely fucking brutal. Not sure what else will be able to compete for the “PS4 Swansong” title. They’ve done it again.
  7. Same here. I was underwhelmed by the Session demo, but I really do hope they can get it to the point where it's a really playable and fully featured game.
  8. Oh, that's not sounding good. But I guess we've been waiting so long for a new skate game, another year won't hurt. I do wish MS/EA would make Skate 2 work on the Xbox One though, as it was the best in the series IMO. 3 is fine, but the environments just aren't as interesting as 2. Are there ramps in Skater XL? I couldn't find a single halfpipe or mini-ramp in Session last night.
  9. Spent some time with Session tonight, trying some different control schemes and just generally messing about. I really appreciate what they’re trying to do with it, but it’s not for me in its current state. Hopefully this early access period will get them all the feedback they need to make it into a great game, but I don’t have the patience to stick with it right now. I’ll try it again in a few months. Now, when do we get to try Skater XL on a console?
  10. I played the demo for 2 minutes and the controls absolutely exploded my brain. This is going to take some serious reprogramming. Also, had my son sitting next to me, and had to turn the sound off because the music's all F**k and N**er this and that. What a bizarre choice.
  11. Session confirmed for Xbox Game Preview on the 17th June. That's next week! What's more, there's apparently a trial available RIGHT NOW.
  12. I've been listening to this loads lately. I think it's my favourite cover of all time.
  13. You what now? You seriously can’t do races in VR?
  14. You can change weapons?? I played through the whole thing twice and didn’t see that option.
  15. Join us. Joiiinn usssss. There's an amazing skate thread in Off Topic. I'm on the fence with the THPS remake. I loved 1 and 2 so much when they were released, but they're just not as enjoyable as the Skate series now. Probably still day 1, but we'll have to wait and see.
