The second PC beta of The Crew is now officially over, which means our next hands-on will be on consoles in late September for another closed beta. Yesterday evening, we went for a 3 hour drive, leaving the suburban New York area to get to Miami via Cap Canaveral, then headed straight for the Everglades before deciding to go to Dallas. We eventually ended up at Pikes Peak for a beautiful sunrise and then parted ways to get some sleep as it was getting kind of late. Not everything was perfect technically speaking, but despite the few hiccups, boredom was nowhere to be found. We spent time watching the beautiful scenery, having fun with the locals sometimes, or simply chatting. Here is a very short summary of what we saw last night, we couldn't put everything in there, but hopefully you'll enjoy the ride anyway. The music we've added may not be the most appropriate one as we never set wheel in Alabama, but it suits the mood perfectly so we figured you wouldn't mind.
just started playing the Forest today and sunk too much time with my buddy. WOOF that game is fun (8 minutes ago)
New enemy types, namely the Snatchers, Pouncers, and Carriers were aggressively unfun to fight. Still a good game, not a great game by any means. 7/10 (1 Hour ago)
The new characters mostly uninteresting and their chatter during the game annoying at times. Marcus/Cole/Baird was very fun. Giant robots super fun. Wind mechanic way overused. (1 Hour ago)
Beat Gears 4 last night. TLDR review: Interesting story that they fail to give a satisfying ending (or any ending at all to). Hit and miss graphics, mostly hit. Weak beginning, and super weak end. (1 Hour ago)
@KORNdog: It depends on how they define succes. If it's viewers, then it's a succes. If it's no increase in subscriptions, then it's not. (2 Hours ago)
preordered snes mini. just waiting for the order not to be honored. (3 Hours ago)
@droezelke: not in regards to costs. If it was a success, they wouldn't have cancelled it now would they. Lol. (3 Hours ago)
