Cant wait for FM6! Every year a different flavour, I really don't consider motorsport and horizon the same game. Enthusiasts get what they want, then take a break the next year with a big dumb open world thing. Win win.

It's the internet.When your website is more blog then publication you present yourself as a less professional outfit. You bring politics into a discussion, you bring political discourse. Not professional political discourse is the worst. People feel strongly about that stuff. Right/Wrong, all opinion. Neither are right, neither are wrong. Just because you 'feel' it doesn't make it so. But neither 'side' is going to realise any of that.
I guess I'm getting old. I genuinely believed that putting anything on the internet is done so at the risk of both reward and hate. Hate is a very easy thing to put on the internet, it takes fractions of the effort and care then to do it in actual reality. It's when people take the internet as their primary means of communication and interactivity that causes it to carry more weight. If you read every bit of text with the same brevity, you are assuming that everything a youth is saying carries the weight of a wise, weighted thought, considering person. Thats not how the world works. Twitter is just like the worst irc chatroom, but now open to the entire world. People can't express themselves through text as much as in real, actual converse, so they tend to over react and bring normal to incredulous rather quickly. Pointing a finger at someone in real life is a much stronger gesture then doing it online. It's really easy to do with a keyboard. But its all empty, and not real. Obviously this is about a culture that attracted itself a coordinated attack, victims without reason gave an opportunity to attackers without guts. All done over a medium without nuance, and without any humanity to begin with.
Has much happened in real life though? Actual, interpersonal interaction?
This is why you stay up and watch grands prix live, even if the races get brutal for us down under!! Fuck yes Ricciardo!! My mates are watching it in a few hours, gonna have to stay up and go watch it with them again, worth savouring!
This is the only site that deals around video games that isn't all so dry and benign like a bunch of haunted nerds. Except for that haunted nerd segment. And the webcam shit. The guys in the office are the only part of any site that deals around people, and video games, that isn't dry and boring. There are plenty of sites out there that are boredom ventures into the mundane. I'm on team personality myself
Skyrim was a less vaired Oblivion which was a less varied Morrowind. COD4 was a completely new experience in the FPS format. The every game is WW2 was past its prime and this was a shock of modern exactly when it was needed. And with that brought the best fps combat ever. Gripping story (with a fuckin NUKE) and touching first person scenes, which nothing has come close to reimagining. Games kill you every other level now days, but back then, that helicopter scene, man.
And I haven't been as attached to multiplayer since Quake. In fact, it was as good as pre-quakeworld Quake. And no consequent release comes close in that regard. It's easily my GOTG, but its also Number 2 of all time. I actually ponied up for live because of it. Went through a couple of xboxes because of it. All totally worth it.
I'm using a G27 and even with the aids off you have to be pretty rubbish to spin it. Not much seat time so far, and only time attacking the retro stuff, but the on the limit feel is really great
People like to over analyze stuff I get that, but I just think they picked a date they would be ready for in the markets they need to hit. These are big companies with very solid distribution in place, so its just supply. Microsoft also has elements that need extra localisation support. Sony may stagger release to help focus marketing, or it may be supply. It's just a product launch!
