    I knew about Road Redemption which has been in early access for years but never heard of Road Rage, it's good to see these Road Rash style games come back.

    I've never played an Assassin's Creed but I might check out the Egypt one

    ill def be copping that too and i only buy maybe 4-5 games a year at most. I've played the majority of the assassin's creed games but the setting for this one looks especially dope.

    Road Rash looks interesting, nice little throwback

    Didn't they take a year off releasing AC titles as well? I hope that was put to good use

    Yeah they took a year off with the AC titles as the last two were not that good and were unplayable thanks to the bugs. The problem the AC franchise has is as they progress through history it gets less interesting as the setting doesn't match well with the game mechanics. The Crusades, Renaissance Italy all were great settings for the game. AC3 sucked because you didn't have the same grand cities like you did in the previous game, Early Boston and New York sucked compared to Jerusalem, Venice, Rome and Istanbul. Black Flag is an exception cause the Pirate theme was so awesome. Reason why with the latest game Origins they going back way to the beginning. Still I don't know why they don't to a game set in Japan or China.

    Anyway none of this matters as I read AC origins will have Loot boxes. So instead of collecting 100 pieces of crap around a city to gain access to the dungeon that will give the coolest sword or armour in the game, you could gamble and see if you get it.

    Don't know if anyone has any interest in the Forza series. They literally fucked with it. Before you could gain more credits by modifying the difficulty in a race, so turn off ABS, traction controlling, driving manual etc etc. Now theres no such option. You can get those 'modifiers' but you need to unlock them through .. you guessed it loot boxes. So you earn credits to get loot boxes, so you can get modifiers to earn more credit. The game becomes a massive grind if you don't choose to dish out actual money to buy the cars you want.

    and apparently Battlefront 2 has the same loot boxes but even worse.

    Please tell me Road Rage is a joke. An open world with nothing in it lol. The first Driver game in 1999 had more going on.

    AC looks kinda cool as usual but I wouldn't spend my money on any of the other games.


    De mijne is 4x duurder!

    Honestly somebody (not Bioware though) needs to do a pirate themed RPG. I want Elder Scrolls 6 to be based on the seven seas lol

    It did look pretty empty and weird. Even that pc game Midtown Madness in 99 looked more polished.

    This would be fucking great, cd projekt red could probably knock it out the ball park, I wouldn’t even mind Warner brothers and them giving it a shot

    Warner Brothers are surprisingly good you’d think with their name they’d be the biggest Microtransactions cunts going around that’s actually a good shout and from what I hear they did a really good job fixing the AK pc port. CDPR steam punk game hasn’t come out yet has it?

    Apparently there is a huge push by big publishers for open world games because they are the easiest to monetize.
