@fatalbanana:I've only had like 1 game out of a 100 that were toxic. But, this was pre-ban rules. Now I hardly see or hear it. But, I have a high tolerance for what is considered toxic. I have no problem with occasional banter or bro-chacho talk. I draw the line on racial slurs only.
It seems like most people playing online realize that just by informing someone new about some stuff they see better results out of the new comer.
@inevpatoria: Yes and Yes. I forget where the setting is but it is disabled by default (4k texture download). That podcast with the marketing manager "Albert Penello" explains it at some point but I don't think mentions that it is off by default.
So, I have had an Xbox One X for a while. It looks like it super samples, 4k to 1080p. So, Forza 7 with regular textures on both PC and Xbox look great. I have a high end pc and the quality is comparable between the two.
@frostyryan: It doesn't really have a training mode. It is one of those you just need to study it. I highly recommend Aris "AvoidingThePuddle" that is linked in the Original Post. This game is very movement heavy. Mastering movement will go a long way. I feel like this game makes Street Fighters 'footsies' seem basic. I haven't played the game since Tekken Tag on PS2. So, it has been a really interesting learning experience.
What is really terrible in this game is that is has a lot of hidden techniques that are never explained and not much community support explaining them. A parallel example of this is Balrog's super in street fighter. I had no idea the super has two different states, straight punches and uppercuts. Tekken is worse in that it doesn't make it clear when you need to crouch dash or do a QCF movement in some cases. Also, characters have different stances that aren't explained at all in the move list.
It is a really fun game. Just requires a lot of extra curricular to git good.
I was most surprised at how far Phil was willing to go with the whole Sony cross-play thing with Minecraft. He said publicly and made it very clear that it wasn't on them. That was pretty bold. Also, Sony's excuse according to him was extremely weak and he called them out on it.
