Well I haven't had the last 2 versions but picked this up for 25 as it looks like a marked improvement. Played a bit last night and enjoyed it.

As to the complaints I don't think it matters what they do people will slag it off because it is CoD. If you like these games for MP I think you will be happy, it's quicker, cleaner and different enough to be fun imo. If it's not your cup of tea it never will be.

It seems more effort has been put in to it and there are changes and improvements but it still is a CoD game at heart.

Puzzle ring is great, socket it and add boon of the hoarder to it.

You get 30% chance of a gold drop and boon adds 30% more gold. I pull down about 10 million gold an hour on act 1 bounties in the field using it, great way to keep your gold count up. Add to that getting the odd legendary as well its great as a farming ring.

PC, console for racing games atm but with Project cars coming to PC that could change. The value proposition in the console just isn't there for me. 50 for a next gen game is just way too expensive for me with a young family and financial constraints whereas PC has a great backlog and new stuff at really good prices.

I got Fifa 15 for 25 on the PC against 50 on the consoles, it's just a no brainer.

However there is some great stuff coming on Nex Gen and after Xmas and there is a better choice at a more reasonable price I could be adding a new console and losing the 360 and PS3 but not this year.

I hit 70 on my Monk a week ago.

This my current build

Putting out about 400k dps and 3.7 mill toughness.

Got a few ok bits but as I've just started running rifts etc got a way to go.

I can run Torment 1 easily but not tried anything harder yet.

Yesterday I got a Treasure Vault and pulled 15 million gold from it.

I have found coop a lot of fun and is definitely the way to play as long as your play styles intersect.

This is about the only game I have played once reaching the level cap, normally I just stop straight away but it is good fun after as well now you can run adventure mode or rifts.

My boys are 4 and7 and love gaming on the iPad as well as the pc but havent shown any interest in the online portion of gaming.

However my eldest loves learning and whatever. He is in to he like looking up on youtubs if he can. Like videos of his favourite songs, luckily they are golden oldies atm so nothing inappropriate. Its not going to be an easy thing to monitor as inapproprinate stuff can appear anywhere.

This summer he has really been in to cricket(us brits eh slywink) well he went on to youtube and found a 10 best cricketing moments and said can we see it, sure i said.

All fine until we got to number 4, the match was in Austrlia, the camera man zoomed in to 2 lovely young ladies in the crowd who saw themselves on the big screen and went on to lift there tops up showing everything to everyone.

My boy goes, dad why are they doing that, i really couldnt answer that one and ended up with, they are just being silly, take no notice. He went and told his mum all about these silly ladies.

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.

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.

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.


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.

Yeah I don't play these games to 100%. Batman 2 we did about 75% and that's fine for me, ignore the stauff that is a pain and move on. However I agree the actual premise of the games is amazing but it does need something new, maybe the next gen will help with that.

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, 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

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
