  1. Most Wanted Upcoming Games

    My list goes sorta like this (by release date): Destiny 2 (October 24) Assassin's Creed Origins (October 27) - Maybe meh, not sure I like the new approach. The combat is sort of off-putting. Wolfenstein II (October 27) Star Wars: Battlefront II (November 17) Far Cry 5 (Febuary 27, 2018) Red Dead Redemption 2 (Spring 2018) - The only PS4-exclusive game in my list, and the only game I'd want to purchase a PS4 for. Anthem (Fall, 2018) FAR OUT: Cyberpunk 2077 (CD Projekt Red) Death Stranding (That one with Mads Mikkelsen)
  2. Forza 7 is live if you bought the Ultimate edition! And for anyone that might have been wondering, the target FPS is no longer limited to 30/60!
  3. Whole thing downloaded - no day one patch download faff.
  4. Yeah, it prompted me to pick a drive where there was at least 95GB of free space to even start the download. Not sure if it's only downloading the 45GB now, and the 50GB patch on the 29th though.
  5. Currently preloading Forza 7, so might actually be ready to play on Friday.
  6. Made a little video of the Forza Motorsport 7 DEMO in 1440p @ 60 FPS - going over some of the graphical settings, doing a quick benchmark, and at the end you can enjoy some fantastic gameplay of me, sliding around on the Ring.
  7. It's running quite nicely for me at 2560x1440. I turned off all the Dynamic stuff, and manually set everything in the Advanced tab to the highest setting (including 8x MSAA) - it looks great! I'm getting a steady 60 FPS, so I think there's potential for more - I just hope we'll be able to unlock the FPS in the full version. I've only encountered a few hiccups during gameplay, probably to load in some of the gorgeous scenery. But they're rare and far apart.
  8. Anybody get access to the Forza 7 demo yet?

    I just gave it a whirl. Seems alright! Got my 920 hooked up, and FF settings dialed in, and having fun. I have only experienced momentary stuttering, probably to load in some of the gorgeous scenery, which I'll just put off to the fact that it's a demo. I turned off all the Dynamic crap, and manually set everything in the Advanced tab to the highest setting - it looks great! I don't have a way to measure the FPS at the moment, but it seems fine, probably around the 60 FPS limit. I hope we'll be able to unlock the FPS in the full version. The sound design seems to have gotten a proper nude, and is really immersive I feel. The only thing I do dislike, is the fact that it feels a bit too much like Horizon, in the sense that there's fireworks going off, helicopters flying close and other shenanigans. Not really needed in a game that should be more focused on the driving experience.
  9. Gaming screenshots

    Quite enjoying No Man's Sky after the recent updates. It certainly feels a bit more worthy of its price tag than it did at release.
  10. Are Fallout 4 and The Witcher 3 similar?

    The Witcher 3 is a much purer RPG than Fallout 4, and more story driven. Its pace is slower, but I felt at least, that the world is more complete than Fallout 4's. More interesting characters, and infinitely more interesting quests. So while it's a very different beast than Fallout 4, I think you should give the Witcher a go, as it's a game that can really grasp your attention, and steal all your time, if you let it.
  11. Watercooled NZXT s340 Elite (white)

    Looks great man! Clean build, the lighting is spread evenly without being overdone - lovely! I haven't seen that pump top/housing before, but it fits the build very well.
  12. Why would he put those lovely pictures in a spoiler tag? Build looks awesome!
  13. Logitech G27 VS G29

    There's also the Logitech G920 if you want a wheel that looks slightly cleaner than the G29 - you miss out on a few of the buttons, and the shift light, but that's a bit of a gimmick anyway, and not that usable. I just got one the other day, and I'm quite enjoying it - I also play ETS2 and ATS, Forza 6 and Horizon, etc. I found the brake pedal way too hard though, to the point where you can't achieve 100% brake pressure even when applying your entire body weight. That can be remedied quite easily by removing or trimming the little rubber stopper in the pedal though:
  14. Which case should I get?

    Not sure how the prices are on the Corsair 760T at the moment, but that's probably the case I've enjoyed working in the most. The build quality is awesome, everything's laid out neatly, and the insides are very accessible with the hinged doors.
  15. Not sure if this is the right place for it, but I felt the need to flaunt my stupidity somewhere. Prior to picking up my new Logitech G920 wheel and pedal set yesterday, I had read that the brake pedal was overly stiff, and that there was an easy fix for this - removing a small rubber stop inside the pedal spring. I found a Youtube video explaining the process, so the first thing I did when I unpacked my new pedals, was to rip them apart. Simple enough. What could possibly go wrong? (Everything) While assembling the pedal housing again, after removing the rubber stop, two of the screws had a bit of resistance to them, but I didn't think much of it. When I plugged the pedals into the wheel however, the force feedback motor just started humming and vibrating violently. Thankfully I have enough insight to realize that it was probably something I had done to mess them up. Opened them up again and: Yeah, not in one, but in two places. Impressive. So in stead of spending time getting to grips with the wheel, and having a blast, I had a blast soldering these three immensely thin copper wires. All good again, and working as intended. Just wanted to share in case someone here has a set of these, and maybe didn't know about the mod - now you know how it ISN'T done. The mod does wonders to the feel of the brake, so totally recommended - I actually cut the bumper stop in half - removing it entirely will make the pedal feel like the clutch, but it'll hit 100% braking before bottoming out.
