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.
... I can't even think of what they want. Maybe expecting CoH or AoE or even a Starcraft like game, but it's not even trying to be a strategy game like that. (2 Hours ago)
@rayy: I think so. If I hit on something later in the game that I haven't gotten to yet I'll let you know, but so far I don't see any control flaws. (2 Hours ago)
If you took the sword work and handling from Witcher and put it in Skyrim, you have the ultimate game in that genre. Mods made Skyrim in my opinion; vanilla was stunted outside of stealth backstabbery (2 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: Both games in my eyes had spotty combat. I played W3 for its story and life. As for Skyrim, the vanilla version of the game felt bland without the mods. (5 Hours ago)
And I think the gameplay that is there is pretty janky and pretty shallow. (5 Hours ago)
I get that you think Skyrim is crap, but The Witcher 3 aint "a good version of Skyrim" because they have totally different goals. TW3 doesn't even attempt half the systems that Skyrim does. (5 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: Nah, that's *really* not all there is to it. You're comparing a broken apple with a poorly designed orange. (5 Hours ago)
