Our PC videos of NFS Payback

Before the Star Wars: Battlefront II scandal, EA had already implemented forced grinding and loot boxes in Need for Speed Payback, which logically had an impact on the game's pace. It's not a bad title, but it doesn't really bring anything new to the table and its world is not as appealing as, say, the maps of the Forza Horizon series or even The Crew. The PC version could probably use a little more polish, as there is just as much pop-in as on Xbox One X, and playing in ultra above 1080p with our GTX 1080 seems to cause regular frame drops. Check out our videos and tell us what you think.

Our Xbox One X videos

We have been among the lucky ones to receive an Xbox One X beforehand, something like 4 days ago. it didn't leave us much time to download the games and record some gameplay footage, but we did our best as usual. Inside, you'll find a bunch of videos showing titles that have already been updated with their Xbox One X patch. Most of them are Xbox One games obviously, but we also have 3 iconic 360 titles to show you with a massive bump in resolution. Finally, we have tried the first Project CARS to see what forced v-sync and anisotropic filtering can do to a game that hasn't been patched for Xbox One X. If you want to compare, see the last base Xbox One footage we captured back in 2015.
Note: Some games are yet to receive their Xbox One X update, so we'll try to be thorough and propose more videos later.

What's up?

    GriftGFX But they haven't stayed consistent. In BF1 the best vanilla SMG is *by far* the hardest to unlock. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Example: the best AR in BF3/4 is the AEK and it's one of the first guns you unlock in both games. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tinks: Right.. a lot of their unlocks avoid this issue by putting all the best stuff at the front of the unlock tree. (8 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks the unlock rate is bad when it means gaining perk advantages against others with less playtime. (9 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX and then letting you use those weapons against users who don't have them has always seemed wrong to me (15 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MikeManiac61: I don't mind the unlock rate too much (although there are a few exceptions in BF1) since they frontload the best weapons a lot of the time. But locking good weapons behind DLC (15 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Having the same sentiments. It's reminding me of Battlefront 2 and their system where you have to grind so much for an unlock. (15 Hours ago)
