NFS 2015 really soured me on the franchise, some of the worst driving mechanics I've seen since saints row. The best thing about that game was when they included the best of the Rom Di Prisco tracks from the PS1 era, Quantum Singularity and Sirius 909 being two of my favorites.

But yeah, the driving was so very bad. If they really finally came out with a game with good physics after 15 years (or however long it's been since NFSU2), that is excellent news and very exciting. Until I check it out I'm going to remain skeptical.
Iโ€™ve hated every NFS game since MW05/Carbon and I really am enjoying this one. If you liked the older ones I think you would get a kick out of this one. Ghost Studios did a great job with it, I was very skeptical too as I had more or less permanently given up on the franchise until a buddy bought it and let me try it.

My one hope is that โ€œget woke go brokeโ€ is now seen as undeniably true. At least as far as video games is concerned. The Last of Us 2 is proof of this. It got super woke and now it is not selling. Anywhere. The game took multi-millions to make and it will lose 80% or so of that money. Don't be surprised if Naughty Dog is gone by this time next year. That or on the desperate edge of bankruptcy.

CD Projekt Red had better watch the hell out. The gamer is not having this shite any longer.
It's not though, lol. Even if one of these overpriced poz vehicles totally bombs, the developers will just take the hit and do it again. A smaller developer might be wary of angering customers, Sony and Microsoft aren't.

Who is actually playing this on release day, I'll play it if it works on steam proton or wine on Linux, does anyone have the capability to test raytracing within the game, I'm on AMD so I can't but I'd be interested in how good it is considering this is the first big release with ray-tracing and the RTX 3000 series is coming out alongside the game. Check out the RTX 3000 series btw, the 3070 seems like a very good buy, especially for those looking to play this title, it's basically an RTX 2080ti at half the price.

Probably not release day, but I'll get around to trying it sometime on my RTX 2070 Super. There are some early indications that the 3000 line may be somewhat of a disappointment considering the 300W+ high power draw (e.g., 3080 in reality ~25-30% over 2080 Ti in-game). I'm not buying into the low-price, generational-leap hype; Nvidia still has no competition in the high-end GPU department. I predict decent models will be priced well over MSRP, and that they will be effectively out of stock for many months. May be worth it for someone coming from less than a GTX 1080 though.

AMD's Zen3 CPUs should finally bring parity with Intel in gaming performance- so another ho-hum event for me. Reveal in early-October and release by mid-November (probably).

I also think the consoles will fall a bit short of the marketing hype and expectations. It's unlikely that AMD has all-of-a-sudden figured out how to create some powerful small and efficient power-saving GPU chip, given their inability to be competitive with Nvidia in that realm. Games will look good, but likely with some downgrades from what we've seen presented, similar to previous generations. If I had to guess, I'd say the next-gen consoles will be more on par with a Ryzen 3600 & RTX 2060 Super in terms of raw CPU, GPU power- not 3700X & RTX 2080'ish- despite whatever numbers they're throwing around. Not too shabby, and platform optimizations (akin to DLSS, etc.) will aid in comparison with PC counterparts.

As for Cyberpunk 2077... at least it shouldn't have DRM being released via GOG so will make it out there pretty quick.

I for one am slightly bummed but not by this game, but by the dev. I am about 70% through the third Witcher game and the "muh stronk wahman" shite is almost going to make me vomit. It is "Vikings" tier level now.
Nigga, I've played the game four times, the strong women meme (at least for the Witcher) is misinformed. People who have never read the books nor played the older games do not understand that sorceresses are bitches, especially Yennefer and Phillipa

It's much more than just the sorceresses cunts. If you did not see that, I am amazed.

If you're talking about Cerys, I'll give you like an inch only because

If you don't finish it, Svanrige takes the throne and Skellige prospers

That's the only obvious girl power moment in the whole game that doesn't involve sorceresses

I'm pretty sure NFS underground actually heavily influenced the 2000's custom car scene

Having been fairly heavily involved in that particular scene (to the point of being chased out of obscure parking lots by cop helicopters with spotlights), IMO NFS Underground was the result or reflection of the 2000s custom car scene, not the initiating influencer per se. What really made shit go nuts was when The Fast and the Furious was released in theatres. You came out of that movie, and dudes with combovers were burning rubber in minivans leaving the parking lot all over the place, it was insane. The laws on drag racing in the street were swiftly changed in many states because of that movie's influence. It made the previously low-key street car scene just blow up exponentially. NOS became a huge thing because of it, also.

I agree, the flim is pretty special because all the cars are donated from real enthusiasts so you get a really authentic atmosphere.

Reminder that Andrej Sapkowski is a male feminist. Witcher was kinda pozzed from the start. Andrej also committed blatant and egregious plagiarism when he made The Witcher. See also: Elric of Melnibone
Razorfist did a good takedown of how much a hack Sapkowski is.

I have read Elric. Long time ago, but I was addicted to fantasy books ages 11-15 or so. I agree with the take. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Someone needs to make a based af Elric series.

Amazon or Hulu was going to... Until they dropped it because of the similarities to The Witcher.

Meh, they would have gheyed it up. Good thing they didn't. They ghey up the Witcher is one thing. Gheying up Elric? That's a whole other level of heresy.

man do i love that movie. the f'n'f franchise peaked with tokyo drift. everything after that was shit.

also regarding cyberpunk:

if the storytelling is better than bl3 and you can do stuff without actually playing the story, like in gta it will be alright.
i will not pay full price for of course because i will get it next year as a goty with possible dlcs.

Delayed yet again. Apparently due to the challenge of shipping it on so many consoles and because of the hoax virus and all that.

Most likely, there are many emotions and questions in your heads,โ€ they said in the announcement, โ€œso, first and foremost, please accept our humble apologies.โ€

The team cited the complexity of creating and testing what amounts to nine different versions of the game ahead of its launch. The game will be compatible with current-generation consoles as well as the next generation PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. It is also coming to Googleโ€™s Stadia cloud gaming platform.

I'm sure Cyberpunk 2077 will be a great game.
I don't generally buy new games anymore tho, got "burned" too many times because there's always expansions coming out for these games, and I have switched to waiting and then buying the Game of the Year Edition / Complete Edition with all expansions.
Only exception are games that are fully online, so that would justify an instant purchase if it's a great game.
I already got a library of games I didn't play all that much, literally thousands of games, from PS1, PS2, Dreamcast, original XBox, now a used XBox360, and I'll buy a cheap used PS3 soon to mod it and put all my PS1/PS2/PS3 games on hopefully.
So I rather save my money for essential stuff instead of throw it at new games, and I enjoy modding old consoles. Currently modding a X360 with a 2Terrabyte HDD. going to be fun.

Consoles messing it up again. But well a hint for the final release date might be in the game's title given all these delays.
