@  TonyDP : (01 September 2014 - 07:47 PM) I just reached Cursed station in Metro 2033. Game controls well, has nice graphics, well detailed models and excellent lighting effects. Aiming can be a bit tricky based on the weapon but this is deliberate given the world you're playing in. Checkpoints could be closer together (no save anywhere available). Game is very bleak and depressing and probably not a keeper once I beat the games. I've read that Last Light looks even better but I haven't looked at that yet.
@  KaliniuS : (06 September 2014 - 01:32 PM) In case you guys haven't heard, Forza 5 is free to download this weekend only for XBL gold members. I'm pretty impressed by it and I'm not usually a fan of realistic racing games.
@  TonyDP : (06 September 2014 - 05:55 PM) I've played a ton of Forza 5 (as well as every game since Forza 2); they are all very accessible games and can be customized controlwise for pretty much any racing style.
@  KaliniuS : (08 September 2014 - 07:24 AM) I made a pretty cool Pac Man design in Forza 5 but the servers haven't been working properly all weekend and I can't upload it :(
@  d2_s : (11 September 2014 - 03:06 AM) Forza 5 for free? Now that's a bargain and a half! They've made a really nice engine to go forward with and just need to see it put to use in a true Forza title not rushed for launch. Forza 5 is really lacking in content compared to past entries and is the only thing holding it back IMHO.
@  HumpYourWayT... : (11 September 2014 - 10:52 AM) Forza 5 yikes - looks so awful with all the jaggies and toned down smoke effects. Also the slim package of tracks is a bummer....
@  HumpYourWayT... : (11 September 2014 - 10:53 AM) ... on the plus side: Clarkson from Top Gear doing Commentary - yay  :girlwacko:
@  TonyDP : (11 September 2014 - 03:41 PM) They've actually added a few tracks since the game was released including the Nurburgring, Road America and St. Petersburg (all free). Personally, I think the game looks great on my 55" LED.
@  d2_s : (12 September 2014 - 08:12 PM) Yes they have added a few tracks, but those are tracks we already had in past Forza games and in comparison Forza 5 is still an empty shell next to Forza 4. I'm banking on Forza 6 to be the proper next gen Forza entry we should have got. 5 is a nice tech demo, that was rushed out to meet the X1's launch. Same can be said of other titles like Infamous on PS4.
@  d2_s : (12 September 2014 - 08:13 PM) Rushed for launch window. Nice and pretty, but lacking in substance.
@  d2_s : (12 September 2014 - 08:43 PM) @Hump I would personally add Clarkson to the list of negatives. Guy is a tosser :P
@  TonyDP : (13 September 2014 - 10:22 AM) Never liked Clarkson; he really comes across as being condescending and way too into himself. Forza 4 did have everything including the kitchen sink; I still play it as well. But Forza 5 is a lot of fun. Forza Vista for every car is cool and I'm pretty sure St. Petersburg was never in Forza before (or not for a long time anyway).
@  KaliniuS : (14 September 2014 - 03:32 PM) Well, Forza 5 was only free for the wee end. Now if you want to continue playing, you have to pay up and buy the game. I wasn't aware of that until the final day. I wasn't impressed enough with it to pay full price for it.
@  KaliniuS : (14 September 2014 - 03:32 PM) weekend*

@  ermac666 : (15 September 2014 - 05:59 AM) Bayonetta 2 has performance issues on the wii u. Ouch..
@  TonyDP : (15 September 2014 - 04:15 PM) Disappointing to read but not really surprising. The Wii U is one of the few consoles I passed over without so much as a backward glance. Usually a new piece of gaming hardware has me foaming at the mouth but I could not muster any interest in that console.
@  d2_s : (15 September 2014 - 08:30 PM) @ermac. not such a big deal. The 360 had big frame drops and it was fine. The Wii U version looks fantastic and though frame drops suck I don't think its a deal breaker. I mean look at Ryse on X1 it can barely stay above 25 frames at 900p most of the time and I barely see that mentioned anywhere.
@  d2_s : (15 September 2014 - 08:33 PM) I like the Wii U-it has some great games-but Nintendo did royally screw up. They tried to plesse eveyone, but instead made a system that could really satisfy anyone other than the hardcore Nintendo faithful.
@  d2_s : (16 September 2014 - 09:57 PM) Guess who received an email from Sony today about the Bloodborne Alpha? Really hope I get in its my most anticipated game on any platform.
