Hey, game: you know exactly when was the last time I played you. So just pop up a diagram of the damn control scheme when it’s been a while.
Fuck Forza Motorsport, once and for all. I just tried the trick of lowering all gear ratios in order to fool the gamepad-steering algorithm into making my car turn into corners, but of course the car’s too slow now.
I suppose if you want to be competitive in Forza you “just” have to fine-tune the balance, and find the highest gear ratios that will let you handle a hairpin turn without losing too much performance in the straights, but WHY IS THIS A THING I SHOULD HAVE TO DO.
Or, hey, I could buy a $400 wheel and get rid of the problem entirely. But, you know what, Microsoft, you haven’t earned it. And since I can’t buy a steering wheel that would work with both the Xbox One and PS4 (at a reasonable price) I’ll definitely get the one I can use with VR driving games.
And it’s all the more infuriating as I don’t have this issue with Forza Horizon, whose developers must have agreed with me and removed the offending code. So all it would take in Motorsport is a setting to enable Horizon’s steering controls, but Turn 10 has ignored the complaints for years so, you know, like I said — fuck Forza Motorsport.
What we have here is a failure of imagination.
I wouldn’t count on Valve to design a great UI but, come on, you can do better than just projecting Big Picture in the middle of the space.
Mass Effect 3: “Humans First”
The ending was so bad I’d forgotten the rest of the game already rubbed me the wrong way.
I mean I’ve played it for two minutes and I don’t think I like it, but even the quasi-Newtonian flight model is pretty close to what I wanted.
Oxenfree’s dialogue is fantastic but I’ve had to restart chapters twice in an hour because Jonas got stuck, so… make it a visual novel, ok?
Until Dawn tricked me with a metronome into answering the ‘worst fears’ questions honestly and I’m gonna be sorry when it plays out.
At 960x1080 pixels per eye I can’t imagine that you’ll want to use the virtual theater mode all that much?
I can understand Sony not including the price of 2 Moves with the PSVR, but if you really need the camera too, that should be factored in.
A weird contrast with the whole “NYC felled by its consumerism” premise.
I wish Apple would release a VR headset so I could make stuff for it without having to learn a whole new platform from scratch.
You’d think Sony would have kept Evolution on life support until it had released the VR edition of Driveclub?
I hate just about every aspect of the game design in Crimes and Punishments but I really want to see the other investigations.
Checking out Mad Max: I can’t stand the laggy, floaty camera of recent third-person games with their cinematic ambitions. Hello, migraine.
The Mass Effect: Andromeda leak sounds to me like we’re disturbing the fragile equilibrium between two local races, rather than “invading.”
The Twitch app for PS4 won’t launch if you’ve disabled HDCP to use an external video capture box. Well done, team!
