So long The Crew

So long The Crew

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.

Sweet Ride

I've played the beta for the second time and it was much, much better than the first time. Still feel like the handling needs some work, but it's not as bad as handling in most open world games.

This is a fantastic year for racing games with The Crew, Forza Horizon 2, DriveClub and Project CARS, Mario Kart 8, Grid: Autosport and etc.

Music made that video unwatchable. Sorry.

The handling is pretty good with a wheel, I'd definitely recommend one for The Crew

What specs did you run this on? My card did not deal very well with it.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (47 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (49 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (2 Hours ago)
