Is Far Cry 2's tech really more advanced than Far Cry 5's?

@MARATXXX I would add Red Dead Redemption. The atmosphere felt unparalleled when I first roamed the harsh landscape, only to be mauled by wolves while skinning a bison.

In interviews with Vavra, there is definitely an unpleasant undercurrent to his beliefs which has surely influenced the final game. In many ways it's just a marketing stunt but it's highly problematic.

Putting inflation at 2.7% that 15k in 1991 would be worth about 30k today. Not a small sum by any means.

In moments, I had similar feelings to first roaming the plains of Red Dead Redemption. The beautiful but harsh landscape playing such an integral role in the atmosphere. Mad max is a surprisingly modest but excellent game.

Titanfall reveals its second DLC pack Frontier's Edge

@matt27
Expansion packs were quite uncommon before. Because DLC is so common now and with many bare bones games being supplemented by DLC, the annoyance is justified I think.

Titanfall feels adequate but you feel that they've held back a lot of elements for the inevitable sequel.

It's almost expected that this would be a work in progress and to be honest I'm fine with that. Despite all the flaws in the series no other game captures the enthusiasm and love for Motorsport like Gran Turismo. And if I'm not getting a PS4 for a while then I might as well get this.

Digital Foundry vs. Forza Motorsport 5

walidb123

4 years ago

@traind The micro transactions would have been implemented early in development so the balance of the game would have been affected to justify their place in the game. The EG review talks about there being more grinding to get premium cars which I always hate because it doesn't reward progress but repetition until you get frustrated and cave in or just get bored.

When you pay full price for any game you shouldn't have that crap there at all, especially as an early adopter. Most of Microsoft's exclusives on XB1 have micro transactions which could foreshadow how they handle all their games in future.
