OK, this made me LOL.  first of all is the name, obviously, where they couldn't come up with something more interesting like Old McDonalds Farming Sim EXTREME! featuring the Grimace or Famland: Ee-yi-ee-i-OWNED.

next up is the bullet points:

Quote
4 different crops: barley, corn, canola & wheat

no beans?  soy? okra?  maybe they'll be modded in, because:

Quote
A large MOD community where you can download additional vehicles and equipment.

I can't wait to see someone re-create the cow level.

worried you might get bogged down and create a traffic jam in the fields?  worry not!

Quote
AI traffic and computer-controlled assistants

and finally, in case you were worried about the controls:

Quote
Gamepad and steering wheel support

yep, you can use your Logitech Steering wheel to motor along with your John Deere tractor.

"Become a farmer and experience the thrill of driving heavy modern farm equipment ..."

I think "thrill" might be a bit of a stretch.

Right, you buggers.  I'm going to "play" this tonight and report back that it's a great little game.  Then who'll be laughing, huh?

Ahem.  I mean play, not "play".

OK, that was the worst demo I've played since, well, Majesty 2.  icon_twisted

It might be a decent game, but I wouldn't know because all I did was drive a frigging tractor around for ten minutes.  The entire demo is comprised of two "missions."  These are a simple driving course for the tractor, involving some very improbable manoeuvers, followed by the ultra-taxing "roll 20 bales of hay."  Both were against (very easy) time limits.  The tractor doesn't even handle well.

That's it.  Looking at the other missions, it seems the whole of the mission-side part of the game is focused on similar antics.  There's also a career mode "with business element!"  Well yeah, I'd hope so!  But from the look of it, and the fuss the game makes about all the different vehicles, it seems the whole game is spent in first-person with you hopping in and out of vehicles as necessary in order to actually do all the farming manually.  Imagine that.  I was hoping for something more akin to Sim Farm.

And I didn't even find any sheep to shag!  Screw this game.

perhaps the driving would have been easier with a steering wheel from LogitechTM.

Nah, Scots are transvestites who eat things deep-fried in fat.  We Welshmen are the ones who shag sheep.  Well, and Yorkshiremen but they take it way too seriously.

Saw this on Steam last night.  I love how they use a very similar font like MS Flight Sim.  It says there is MP, I'm in if it includes PvP.

At least as exciting as the Blackjack Simulator (these are the "highlights"  icon_razz):
-Wake up
-Feed the cat
-Eat breakfast
-Waste too much time posting gibberish on GT forums (iPad)
-Drive to work
-Waste too much time posting gibberish on GT forums (PC)
-Write some trade media articles
-Eat lunch
-Waste too much time posting gibberish on GT forums (PC)
-Eat a snack
-Write more
-Drive home
-Eat dinner, watch TV
-Play with the cat
-Waste too much time posting gibberish on GT forums (iPad)
-Play Torchlight II and X-COM, and die a lot
-Eat a snack
-Go to sleep

Yes, my life is pathetic. But not as pathetic as a Farming Simulator!  biggrin
