The Grand Tour Game is a bad game, but an interesting vision for interactive TV

There is actually a point that's been totally lost here in all the bickering. In the future when everyone is putting on their VR headsets to play a character in the TV show they are watching, this will be looked back on as the first game to do this new kind of mixed medium, whatever it ends up being called. And it will be massive

I'm all for competition, but the stats are a bit disheartening. This is a 7nm GPU that has twice the memory bandwidth, a way higher power draw, 30% higher computational power in terms of TFLOPS and still just manages to compete with a 12nm 2080 GPU in terms of FPS.

I've not played it for 20 years but the Dark Link fight was very memorable. The silence once the door closed with a thud behind you, then the pitter patter of your feet as you ran towards the lone tree, then your reflection vanishes as he appears. Very effectual for the 12 polygons they had to work with!

I just downloaded this and booted it up in 4k to see how it looks. Character models look a bit dated but the environments still look amazing. Light shafts and floating dust particles and a great sense of it being a real space. Ambient noises of rumbling machines and distant clangs spot on too. Looking forward to exploring the Ishimura again!
