@jeff The game does NOT run locked 30 either on PC. I have an i5 6600k and GTX 980, a reasonable high end system above their recommended specs, and on just high settings set to 30 fps it will still dip down to 20 at times.

I really like this game, but it's an unoptimized mess on PC.

Being able to see Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions for free is worth it alone. That performance is DOPE AF.

I know how much you love Captain Cold (who doesn't?! SO GOOD), so if you want a weekly dose of Snart I can't recommend Legends of Tomorrow enough.

Sure, it has the typical new show and people working together and writers trying to write these characters just right, sort of thing going on at first. Especially since with most of these characters viewers are already familiar with and we know how they're portrayed by these actors, so it can be odd at times until the writers were able to figure out having them all on screen at the same time.

That being said!, Legends of Tomorrow is totally worth giving it a go. At the very least binge it when the first season is on Netflix. It's certainly better than the current season of Arrow...

I'm really REALLY tempted to go to the USGP when I saw that. Two of my favorite things at once? WANT.

I don't listen to as many podcasts as I wished, but always loved 8-4 the few times I've listened to them.

Halo Reach was actually a 3 year turnaround. Halo ODST was in fact made by a smaller team. It was the same engine as H3 and didn't have a full multiplayer component. Full development for Reach though presumably started immediately after H3, so that would've been three years.

I understand the analogy, but NO ONE should want to be the ESPN of ANYTHING. As someone that watched it religiously a decade ago, ESPN is fucking awful nowadays.

So @danryckert missed a few things when talking about the Elite Controller. I wrote a review (and shot a video review) and posted it on the site.

I am by no means a racing game savant, but I'm also not terrible. That being said, the AI is so bad in the Forza Motorsport games that I have to turn the difficulty down for single player to get any enjoyment out of it. This has nothing to do with Drivatars, as this has been a significant problem since at least FM4.

In a single player race, you're typically started farther back in the pack, if not dead last. This makes sense and doesn't bother me. What does bother me is the fact that the first two cars on the grid are significantly faster than the rest of the pack. So while you're fighting your way through a bunch of AI cars that have ZERO concept of where you are, or give a rats ass if they've made contact with you (again, this has nothing to do with Drivatar, the AI in Forza is awful), the first two cars are like 30 seconds ahead of you by the time your through the rest.

So, I turn the AI down a couple notches from my actual skill level in order to get around this. So instead of the first two cars being 30 seconds ahead, they're maybe five seconds head. That's much more reasonable. Oh, and once I pass the front two? Their speed drops down to the rest of the pack and I leave them in the dust.

I love Forza, and single player was often what I played while listening to podcasts (it's how I stayed sane getting 100% completion in FM3). But, I'm legitimately baffled as to why, after at least three games with this exact, reproducible problem, it hasn't been fixed yet.

As someone with limited time, and only one character (a maxed out Hunter), I would pay $10 to max out a new character (and all 3 sub classes). But yeah, this is fucked.

PS - Sparrow racing is fucking AWFUL.
