Once upon a time I made a blog about video games. And this is what's left of it (mostly tweets).

People complain that Horizon 4 is too hard with a steering wheel, and I find the new handling too easy on a controller, so I figured I’d try, but somehow my gas pedal doesn’t work in the game—yet the brake does.

And I really don’t enjoy how the game feels on gamepad 😕

Why is the Forza Horizon 4 demo giving me a 6-speed gearbox on a 1969 Dodge Charger or a 1982 Lancia Stradale.

I’d decided to try as many custom songs as I could (it’s easier now that there’s a Delete button right in Beat Saber) but there’s so much crap coming out every day — the prospect of going through a bunch of bad maps, even for ten seconds, actually began to sour me on the game.

I love that Playground decided it couldn’t portray the English countryside in Horizon without developing destructible drystone wall technology.

The driving model feels more arcadey than I remember, though. Or have I just played too much Dirt Rally?

Looks like Forza Horizon 4 has dialed down the obnoxiousness and walked back the structural changes that both made me give up on Horizon 3. Glad to have a good driving game again to burn off stress at the end of the day—I’m gonna need it come October.

Agh! Had no massive desire to play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, because it looks like Origins 1.5, but this has piqued my interest… [twitter.com]
