@pseg: Yeah, totally understand: I went to "rest my eyes", woke up, powered on my console and saw that you were last online 4 minutes ago...whoops.

I'm still waffling over the $50 season/car pass: that LaFerrari content is tempting, but I could almost buy another game with that...

I'm excited! I didn't play Alan Wake, so it'll be my first Remedy game in quite a number of years.

There's no one more interesting than Jeff Gerstmann (GiantBombing)! I'm also following Major Nelson and e, might add a few others over time.

If I recall correctly, Xbox One games are not region locked but content rights for movies, television and music will still be region specific.

Yeah, Microsoft themselves have confirmed that this works. Albert Penello confirmed it on Twitter before launch. Haven't tried it personally!

That's pretty neat, some of those game download sizes have to be painful for users on smaller data caps.

Crap, I fell asleep and literally just woke up hoping to join. I guess the race nights are shorter now?

Hopefully next week!

I find that playing within the system helps: I try to corral attacking players towards Roy Hibbert or David West when using the Pacers, and use a more man to man D/deny movement style with the Bulls. I also have a habit of switching to an off ball defender and modifying his behaviour to create a pseudo zone if I have a really athletic/fast/tall defender like Kevin Durant.

@jjweatherman: God forbid the PC crowd gets a Next Gen title before the PS4 does.

I don't think that has anything to do with it. PC has just always been an afterthought on these 2K Sports games, and it was probably easier to just build on last year's port of 2K13 and focus on doing their new build on the consoles which will probably be their primary focus for the foreseeable future.

You're probably right. I am just being bitchy because I want the "next gen" 2k and now I know I'll have to buy a PS4 for it. sigh.

Or, an Xbox One!

Agreed: the increased physical contact isn't ideal, but overall I think the Drivatar behaviour is a big improvement in AI realism over the previous entries (caveat: I didn't play Horizon).

Real racing means waiting for a passing opportunity and then executing it cleanly. It doesn't mean smash-em up.

We can agree on this. I haven't said anything to the contrary.

The remaining point of contention seems to be that you think the Drivatar AI is only capable of crashing into other drivers intentionally, and as I've said and others have stated in here, while it's an issue from time to time, in general the increased aggression and speed leads to more exciting battles for position than what Forza's had in the past.

I'm seeing more and more Drivatars that behave like high speed battering rams already, it seems to be par for the course...
