am I the only one who misses Dave a lot around here? no mention in the OP.

Nah man I do. Dave, Vinny, and Drew were the perfect combination and that was what I was subscribed to the site for. It's a shame, but it's the way it is sometimes.

Fried, then omelettes, then scrambled.

Fried eggs are really fucking good in a fry-up or in a bacon and egg sandwich, omelettes are great cause you can put all kinds of stuff in them and they're still great, and scrambled eggs are good on toast or something.

Songs for the Deaf was the only one I ever liked or listened to much really, haven't listened to it in years though.

Maybe its just the way boxing is these days but, for the last superfight, its not really making the ripples it should be making in Britain. Maybe because these events now get hijacked by satellite and cable but I just wish the hype was being felt over here.

Yeah, it must depend on your provider. We have Sky TV and the hype for the match is constant and unmissable. I turned on the Sky PS4 app yesterday and the entire dashboard was full of various different hype shows.

They have to bombard you with ads else how else will you eventually give in and give them £20 to watch it. £20 for single match of boxing.............

I have a bit of a nagging fear that this is going to tank. It's targeting the middle of nowhere-ness (some narrow void between the raft of hardcore simulations and more 'approachable' racing replicators currently available that have well-established userbases) and seemingly doing nothing extraordinary (dynamic weather is the exception, however that's more of a novelty, and furthermore, doesn't look especially great, graphically-speaking*]. It's making a belated entrance into a crowded marketplace. I hope it impresses me somewhere down the line, but it's not an attractive proposition right now.

*Compared to, say, Drive Club.

Is this a joke?

You guys do realise it means multiplayer bans right? They can't just ban you from using your account. You'd be banned from playing that game online, much like a VAC ban.

It's not the entire account, but they can outright ban offline play of their game as well.

No they can't. http://steamcommunity.com/actions/WhatIsGameBan Multiplayer stuff.

I remember when Skyrim came out and it was only 5GB and everyone was moaning about 'how can a 5gb game even look very good it's 2011 come on bethesda' etc etc And hey, the textures were all very low res and it didn't look very good. If we want games to look better and higher quality textures then games will keep on increasing. With storage at such a low price (relative) and internet speeds only going up, it's really not a big deal, especially as with digital downloads you can just download the game whenever you want.

I totally didn't even know this game was coming out on consoles, crazy. I put money into it years ago and kinda forgot about it 'til recently, didn't know it was out so soon though, nice.
