Are you playing with the unlocked sphere grids so you can experiment more with your character builds, or do you fall into the camp of people who believe that just removes the safeguards preventing you from hobbling your party?

-Autistic Angel

I went with the standard grid.  Partly because I didn't want to accidentally gimp my characters, and partly because the unique roles each character plays is a big part of the story.  Messing with that and making Yuna a melee fighter or Kimahri a healer would just mess with the core of the game, IMHO.

This is exactly why I went with Standard.  I think I had started to play this on PS2 but got rid of my PS2 and didn't play very much of it back at the time.  However, I have no memory of the beginning of this game...for some reason I remember it starting on a beach or something and it starts in a city.  At any rate, anxious to play both of these HD remakes to play these two games I never played.  So far, they look good on Vita.

I'm in the same boat. I started X on the PS2 back in the day but never got past the two hour mark, even though this type of Final Fantasy is my favorite. It seems like a mix between the PS1 era and XII and XIII. So I picked it up on the Vita, this time I vow to finish it. X-2 I'm not so sure about, but I will definitely finish X.

Same here, a remember a bit of it but not a lot, looking forward to giving it another go.

Yeah one thing i have noticed is a real cross over between OO, GT and QT3, i give all of them priority but normally i thread somewhere is bigger.

I have played the tutorial so far and it looks great, problem is im really getting in to Terraria so finding enough time for both is difficult. Shall try to play more later.

1 thing i think is it looks great, amazing for just person in fact.

I find one of two things, either i don't get them annually but say every other year regardless or once i stop buying one then i don't buy them again like CoD.

There is so much to buy and play that there is just no need to keep buying the same football game year in and year out.

I'd be a helluva lot more worried about the reports that bathrooms where the press are staying warn them to not flush used toilet paper and instead put it in the trashcan by the toilet. puke

Most countries don't have the high pressure sewer lines that we have in the US, so yes, the above is completely true.

wat?

Is true, i have been to parts of France, Cyprus, Greece, turkey, most of Africa,  all have put the paper in the bin not down the loo. Not so true of northern Europe or UK. It is to do with the size of the sewer pipes, they get blocked as they are very small.

My parents lived in cyprus for 15 years and when they came back to live in the Uk they love being able to flush the loo paper again.

I know this is a conversation for another thread but this is just one of the many reasons I hate/fear the move to all digital.

This has nothing to do with what's going on right now. The digital copies will continue to exist for all foreseeable future. The only difference is that they can't sell the games any more. If you own them digitally, they're still yours and you can download and reinstall them as often as you like. Retail is no different. Expect these Marvel games to have a mass recall from stores in the coming days. You can still play your retail discs, but you can't buy new ones.

You're hating/fearing the wrong thing.

The only difference is it is possible to pick them up second hand even if you have to pay a premium, can't do that with digital sales. Still I won't lose any sleep over not buying specific games, I mean there are thousands more to choose from.

Just got my class b(?) license. Last GT game I played was GT4.

I like it, but not as much as Forza 4 or 5. Where are the cars I want, namely musclecars? Are they still locked, or are they never showing up? I mean, there are some, but not many compared to Forza. Forza even has my Scion IQ (Aston Martin Cygnet) but with right-hand drive.

And what's with no test drives before buying? And the "loaner" car choices are slim.

ehh, nevermind.....it must have updated cause now i have a bunch more cars to pick from  icon_confused

Well there is 1200 cars, as a European Muscle cars are not my thing, prefer ricer style jap cars or european sports cars

Nice,

While I still don't have much time to play I am really enjoying it. Just got all 90 stars on the national 1b category. Found the kart racing the hardest and had to change gear ratios to win 2 of the races.

Money seems to be no issue. I have 9 cars now but nothing super sporty. Car I enjoyed driving the most was an MX-5 in race spec, handled lovely and seemed very nippy.

I think Forza 6 should well be an amazing game, get the track and car numbers correct and it should blow the system away, of course maybe DLC could add the missing stuff and a GOTY version would be the one to pick up in 18 months.

hopefully they make another Horizon in the meantime.

Yeah definitely, really like horizons.

Welll I got to play Forza 5 in my local Game shop today. And I was really impressed. the graphics looked great and so did the course I played, it was the snowy one.

The cars handled well and the controller with trigger rumble was superb, would love one of those for PC use but not at 70 (not sure if they are compatible yet either)

Can you set the racing line to show braking-only?  That was my preferred setting in Forza since I felt it helped compensate for the lack of depth perception making it hard to judge braking points.

Nope, which is also a pain, I liked that setting to learn the tracks rather than having the full line on. to be fair teh driving is good enough that you should be able to get rid of it once you know the tracks

I've been in the Forza club for a while and haven't played a GT game since the days of yore--in this one do you need to earn licenses by doing various maneuvers well enough, or has the series done away with that? Does GT have something like a racing line or braking line like Forza does?

you have licenses to do but they have been toned down so they aren't too hard to get bronze on.

There is a racing line etc, the only thing it doesn't have is auto braking which is fine except for my kids who cant do it that well, but they use the wheel and I do the pedals which seems to work well.

I eventually got a new car but it wasn't that much of an upgrade since I didn't have much money.   After I completed the amateur circuit it did open up new events with different cars that are specific to that event so even though you can't afford them you do get to race other cars. 

I have noticed some sound problems especially the engine.  I need to hear it so I can change gears and when it cuts out it's annoying.


There is no denying teh sound is appalling. There is no excuse in this day and age for the quality of it. Luckily I normally play with the sound off.

After 4 hours I was able to start playing. 

I have a CSR Elite Wheel and it works/feels perfect, you can really feel the differences between the cars. I started playing in Cockpit view and the sense of speed wasn't there, of course you do start off with slow cars so it could just be that, but when I switched to the hood or road camera it did seem to be faster.

I'm playing on a PC monitor at 1080P and it's not as sharp as a PC race game but it isn't that bad. I have noticed a couple of road textures that aren't sharp before the race and some of the cockpits aren't hi-def but overall it looks great. I haven't noticed any screen tearing which I read on other forums. There are some jagged and flickering edges from time to time, but it hasn't been distracting. The replays look good.

The single player campaign is fun they mix things up with different events like hitting cones and other challenges that aren't just races so it make things interesting. They do force you to pick your first car from a selection of 1, I didn't like that. I don't think I've opened up multi-player yet but hopefully I'll get a chance tonight. The AI isn't fantastic, but they have given me a little challenge on some races but there isn't a way to increase the difficulty during the campaign just the arcade mode.

I was really worried about the loading times because of GT5 and I almost bought an SSD but with a normal hard drive they are minimal maybe 5-10 seconds, which is awesome. I hate the loading times on Forza 5, plus my wheel isn't compatible, that's another discussion.

I've completed about 25 races and I've liked all the tracks so far, each one feels different and has their own challenges. The races occur at different times of day and some of the effects look great, racing at dusk is awesome.

Overall I'm having a blast and the initial impression is so much better than GT5. I like the looks of the menu's and they are quick and easy to navigate.

Don't forget to change your oil when you get a new car.

Great write up, I agree with the choice of 1 to start. Did you trade up quickly or upgrade it?

I have a GT Driving Force wheel and cannot find the pedals, bloody annoying.

I came across a bug, I like to use the triggers to accelerate and break so set it up and on the 5th race on the final lap the controls just stopped working and reverted to default causing me to lose the race. NOt sure what is going on there, really need to find my pedals though.

Still zero damage modeling, poor sound, no change in the AI. But the usual tons of cars...sorry I don't see how people keep giving the series a pass based on memories of when they played GT1 or 2. This just isn't acceptable from what's supposed to be a AAA racer in 2013.

It's no issue for me, i play with no sound on in all my games and always turn damage off so those 2 are no problem for me. AI is too early to tell but i've yet to play a game where the Ai was anything but average, hence the popularity of multiplayer.

I have done 6 or 7 races, it looks amazing and the cars seem to drive superbly. The bits that really matter, like lots of cars, tracks and the way it drives is superb.

Maybe if I could put some go faster stripes on it as well it would be even better slywink

Lots of reviews out now.

Lots of good and the usual GT bad.

Looks great, great frame rate, loads of tracks, courses, night and day rain driving etc.

Damage still sucks, sound is crappy still, ai still isnt great.

Eurogamer seems to sum the good and bad. The good works for me and not bothered by the bad.

well... if you are on a budget and are not interested in the other stuff, I would say it is not foolish. 

On the contrary, it's when you're on a budget that PS+ gives the best value. There are new free games available to you every month, and you get access to lower prices on a lot of stuff as well.
on the contrary... if not interested in the other stuff it would be foolish to pay for it.

thanks again for the quick answer on the requirement for multiplayer. 

Obviously if you aren't in to any of the game supplied then yeah don't bother. However you do get to have access to all since you join so been there for a year and you have all of them available an dunlike MS they arent putting up a pile of shite.

Really it seems you have an issue with paying for Multi, which is fine but PSN+ in itself is a massive bargain. If you want free multiplayer then PC will be the only way to go in the future.

This game finally clicked for me last night. I went from 9th and 10th place finishes (at best) to finishing gold in 6 of 15 races. Glad I stuck it out because I went from general disinterest in the game to being hooked. It feels really challenging on a technical skill level which is really fun.

I'm also really starting to appreciate the Drivatar system. In one race last night I was fighting for first when the guy ahead of me made a critical mistake and sideswiped a wall. I took advantage, passed him, and eked out a win. I don't think you'd ever see that with traditional AI.

I agree.  The game is certainly rewarding when you stick with it.  I've been getting Gold & Silver in my 2013 Focus ST consistently

Oh dear, a Ford Focus driver(Miss Daisy) ;D
39  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1]Forza on: November 21, 2013, 09:12:28 AM
It seems career mode is crap, no reward cars, not much of a mode and poor rewards. It looks like you need to buy everything which really will turn in to a grind. With Micro transactions and loads of dlc it seems thew ay to get what you need is to pay more for it.

For me half the fun is winning stuff i didn't expect and getting to try lots of cars out on the different tracks.

Forza is a superb series but this has been rushed out because of Xbox One. It needed another year to do it properly, xmas release next year would have made it a must buy and maybe the console too.

The question i ask myself what would I gain from buying F5 (which will work out at 500) which has less cars, less tracks and an even worse career mode than Forza 4 and the answer seems to be better graphics which was always going to be a worry. Playing F4 last night didnt make me think i need better graphics, really concentration is on the driving line etc, i only notice how good it looks while watching my son drive.

Gran Turismo 6 could be my new goto racing game for a change.
40  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XB1]Forza 5 on: November 20, 2013, 02:34:02 PM
Eurogamer gave it a 7/10.

I am very under whelmed, 14 tracks is not enough, tracks are the meat of the game. Its like playing an Fps and shooting the same enemies over and over.

200 cars is not that many either, i mean i am no hardcore collector but how many out of those 200 are must haves.

Also 10 hours to grind out a million to buy a car sounds less than fun. No career mode as such and too much grinding to buy too few cars.

This was the one game which i was hoping would make me want to get an Xbox 1 instead it doesnt. Forza 4 is one of the few games i still play and is always something you can come back to.

Flash graphics are all good and well but I am no graphic whore, too much to ask but i really hope GT6 does the business.
