This reminds me to actually play Rise of The Tomb Raider.. I really enjoyed the reboot... It does look pretty though.

It's very much like the reboot, in a good and bad way. Overall it's well worth playing.

Will replay and get into the DLC on the X.

Played the demo on my HTPC and Xbox one S.

On PC with my 2500k/GTX1080 setup, the game runs 4k 60fps with ultra dynamic setting, I got HDR to work on PC and it looks amazing, GPU utilisation is around 60-70% so the ultra 4k setup mirrors XOX. Menus on PC seem a bit stuttery, I have experienced 1 or 2 mid race pauses, overall pretty rock solid though.

On xbox one S, HDR looking great, you can notice a the drop in resolution and texture filtering, still looks pretty nice on xbone, none of the menu issues on xbone, no pauses experienced at all.

I just put my preorder down for my xbox one X, they're live now at EB and JB. :up:

Oh and I already have Forza 7 preordered of course. Pretty happy with the PC performance and HDR, will do nicely till the XOX comes.

Looks like Turn 10 (or MS) have decided to play around with the CR system by releasing loot boxes. Instead of turning up the difficulty by turning g off assists to increase CR you need to buy loot boxes to win Forza "Modifiers" which Turn 10 have admitted they will sell for real dollaridoos.

Ouch. I decided I wasn't buying Forza 7 (well, immediately) a while ago. It might be the first one in the series that I don't plan on buying day one.


wait a minute.I just read the article. Yes, lootboxes...bleh bad, but you didn't mention you get to dress up your own online Barbie doll driver. I might be back in now.

It's not just loot boxes, but VIP now isn't lifetime double credits but 25 mods you use up.

http://wccftech.com/fans-furious-forza-motorsport-7-vip/

They didn't make this change known to people preordering, super scummy.

I normally get the VIP editions because I'm time poor, but something compelled me to give the VIP a miss this time, i just preordered the standard edition. Glad I did but the whole thing leaves a bad taste in the mouth, one of the other games I was looking forward to (Shadow of War) has fallen prey to this loot box shit.

I'm really questioning if there is any point to being a day one gamer any more.

Oh wow I didn't know that. I haven't bought it yet so that's really good to know. You'd think they'd have learnt after the Forza 5 reaction. I'd have thought Turn 10 would already be very profitable.

I didn't get the VIP either because usually I end up with way more money than I can be bothered spending. I've skipped VIP before. I tend to alternate between buying it and not. The Forza Hub rewards are often worth 400-600k per week for me which is more than enough to buy some cars without playing much of the single player.

The impressions that I've read seem to be suggesting that Forza has regressed to the tight arse micro transactions that 5 was criticised for. Forza 6 was overly generous to make up for it. But I'll wait to play it before I cast judgement. A lot of people are obsessed with collecting all the cars and buying from the auction house, whereas I'm happy with 10-15 cars to use in multi player.

That combined with the $749.50 One X release price says no FH3 and FM7 this Xmas.

Yeah I noticed that too, I always seem to have an abundance of cash, I thought as well there is no point paying an extra 20-30 bucks for VIP.

I think they screwed the economy in these games from 5 onwards, all these VIP/rewards programs just distorted the grind for cash. Now the loot boxes will distort things further.

Oh well, it's an easy decision then - stanard edition.

The demo is awesome, there's no way I'm not getting this game. Especially when I have an X.

Just read this too

They already lowered the amount you get from Forza Rewards and changing difficulty no longer gives you added credit bonus.

Well damn, loot boxed in.

Here's one good thing about Forza Rewards: they've retrospectively given points for the DLC and token purchases for past Forza games, even if you hadn't bought the DLC/tokens. So people who've played all the Forzas will get 1000-2000 or so extra points which might put you up a tier. The tier rewards are:
Tier 2: 25,000
Tier 3: 50,000
Tier 4: 75,000
Tier 5: 100,000
Tier 6: 125,000
Tier 7: 175,000
Tier 8: 225,000
Tier 9: 275,000
Tier 10: 350,000
Tier 11: 425,000
Tier 12: 500,000

I've ticked over to tier 11 thanks to the extra DLC points so that money will keep me going.

This whole loot crate thing has been overblown. They're no different to the wheel spins in previous games. You still level up every few races and get a free car, which means that you only need to spend credits on cars if you really want a specific car.
