    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    Yeah 60Gb on PC

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    So a complaint about how microtransactions ruin the game for a game with no microtransactions. Clickbait/fake news.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    Car packs aren't even microtransactions, they're just oldschool DLC. That's cosmetic only, and that excerpt doesn't even say it's buyable with real money, it just seems to be a different unlock method.

    Never, if it's like FH3.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    This feels like a film no one would care about if it wasn't Star Wars tbh.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    The intro to this is really bad, almost every line in the first five minutes is ADRed over really obviously with the characters out of focus, probably because the scenes were initially for something different.

    Star Citizen - Fishing for Space Whales

    Lmao. So it's literally about daydreaming for you then? Actually playing the game turns the ideal experience into a crushing, banal reality. This trailer for the most recent patch where basically none of the content shown is actually in game or in that patch. I've also talked to numerous backers who believed the project would hit dates and include features like salvaging that were "nearly done" because they just watched the ATV's - 2 years later, that stuff is not even planned for another year. This is a backer line, and it's complete bullshit, a forum poll about stretch goals had very few responses, and the letter from the chairman directly after said the extra funding would allow the game to be done faster. Since then they said SQ42 will be done in 2016, 2017, 2018, TBD.

    Revealing info from Trophies and Achievements

    I never completed GTAV. I got right near the end of the campaign, decided to do all the side missions first, then my HDD died and I discovered the Rockstar Shit Social Club doesn't do cloud saves.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    Solo makes it even weirder, when Han gives his wife and child a surname made up by an Imperial officer he met for a few minutes.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    But all the Last Jedi does is recreate bits of Empire and ROTJ and have then go the opposite way - ah there's a Lando style character who doesn't turn good, ah the Jedi characters parents are revealed and they're no one important, ah they go to turn the Sith apprentice, but he doesn't turn this time! Like if you're bringing back stuff to do it again or to do the opposite, both approaches are still hidebound by what's come before. Do people just want the tramp freighter full of plucky rebels vs the evil empire forever? The prequels, at least tried to break out the template. Instead of the tramp freighter it was a glossy royal spaceship, instead of plucky rebels it was the government, instead of an evil empire it was an internal group manipulating things from the shadows, instead of the wild west frontier worlds it was developed core worlds. There were no superweapons, unless we're considering the droid control ship from Ep 1. Like it didn't do any of it well but it tried to make a clean break, even if the early backlash lead to an increase in nostalgia callbacks and fan-pandering as the trilogy went on.

    SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    I thought the whole point of the reboot was ditching the expanded universe and it's weird fan-pandering desire to see non-characters who just had a "cool design" brought back from the dead. Should we expect Boba Fett to turn up in EPIX?

    Star Wars Episode IX (December 2019)

    What? I think creating something that keeps going for 20 years means creating something well-liked, like Marvel has done. I reckon EPIX is probably going to chart 20-25% lower due to the Last Jedi backlash, and given that chartered significantly lower than Force Awakens I'm not sure haemorrhaging a big chunk of your audience every time is sustainable or works out as "20 years!"

    Death Stranding - Kojima at it again

    A lot of the weirdness kind of collapses when all the visuals and interesting production design results in a dog enemy - it's a very stock enemy archetype. I do think the focus on evocative cutscenes will disappoint people when the gameplay is revealed and looks very traditional, a bit like Cyberpunk.

    Telltale Games closing

    You wouldn't think they'd be a bad acquisition for someone like Microsoft, they have a good amount of staff, just get them off the shit engine and focus on fewer, higher quality products like the Until Dawn guys. But it sounds like they're already "board up the windows" dead, not even got a chance of being shopped around first.
