    Has the gaming season just arrived

    As much as the fall game releases signify gaming season, in our household so does the start of The Voice! And whenever Janice finds a show that she needs to binge watch...

    Forza Horizon 4 Demo is Out Today!

    As smooth as that Performance mode it, in a game like this I prefer the extra resolution and detail of the quality mode. I felt a little ripped off buying the ultimate edition of FH3 and not getting the two expansions as part of that package. It looks like the two planned expansions are included in the price this time though. Makes me thing about getting it.

    Sweet, I'm going to try Performance mode tonight. Still HDR in performance mode?

    IGN Editor caught for plagiarism

    I put significant money on the fact plagiarism is like an iceberg. I bet we see less than 5-10% of how much is really going on. When I was doing the COG thing we had several instances of plagiarism, both with our writers and people ripping us off. When it was one of our own doing it they were immediately let go. Even if the site that was plagiarized wasn't aware they would be sent a note explaining what we'd found and the action we took. That was always received welcomely. Getting offending sites to remove content was much more difficult. it takes zero credentials to create a "reviews" site. We were proof of that (well me more so that @The Outcast...). Too often, actual journalism takes a back seat to revenue generation through clicks. Unless you're absolutely thorough with the content you create you'll get torn apart by today's gaming culture. You need to commit dozens and dozens of hours towards playing a review game. Not that IGN is a hobby-ist site but I'm sure the pressure of committing enough time to properly review a game would have many sites "looking" for material.

    Shadow of Tomb Raider Goes Gold

    I loved both previous games so much I played them through to 100% completion. This one I think I'm going to take a pass on for now. I've got my eyes set on FH4 and Destiny 2's been taking up what gaming time I have lately.

    Forza Horizon 4 Demo is Out Today!

    Have you played it yet? I gave it a quick spin this afternoon. Looks terrific in Quality visual mode. Haven't tried Performance mode just yet. I do like the new dash cam that gets rid of the steering wheel but I still prefer the hood view. I just get a better sense of speed from the hood camera for some reason. Definite day 1 purchase. Doubt I will plop the $130 for the Ultimate edition this time. Probably just the standard.

    Shad is gonna be a happy guy!

    Anything is an improvement over the Orca logo. Vancouver logos don't have to always be indigenous and the fact is the Orca was a corporate symbol for the ownership group at the time way back in the 90's (Orca Bay Entertainment). With the exception of maybe the New England Patriots the most popular and best logos in sports are relatively simple and have stayed somewhat consistent with maybe some subtle stylized changes here and there (the Leafs' logo, for example). If it were my choice I would use the restyled stick-in-rink logo jersey that Vancouver has recently used as their third. The colours look amazing on tv and there's brand consistency there. Make a white version for away games and then use the skate logo jersey or even the V as thirds. Just lose the fucking Orca.

    Is it just me or...

    ...does going back and playing nostalgic games again always feel underwhelming? Example. I love Halo. I bought the MC Collection and played through 1 & 2 before getting tired of it. Tried it again now that its on Game Pass and was back to playing Destiny in less than an hour. Too much been there, done that feeling for me. I want to play new experiences. Anyone feel the same way?

    What is your favourite console?

    95% of the time I play on my XB1X. For me its a combination of the features the X offers, the controller, online implementation and its where I've built the most of my online relationships. Not that I don't enjoy the other consoles. Own them all. I've always had a distaste for the Playstation controllers but I have to say the PS4 controller was a major improvement.

    Onrush

    @Tywaz did you end up getting this? What did you think? I immediately thought of how much I used to kick your ass in Split Second when I first saw this one. (I never did)

    Sports Game of all time?

    It was loosely based on an old movie called Rollerball (look up the James Caan version, not the remake). It even had motorbikes! Rocketball the game had the best clothesline move ever.

    Division 2 Gameplay Walkthrough Trailer

    I'm still playing the Division. I find it extremely difficult. I'm level 23, not even through the main campaign yet, and I see these other players in safe zones with levels over 200! I've played this game with friends precisely once. With Brewguy. It was awesome. Why restart Sam?

    What, Who won at E3?

    Agreed. I am not a fan at all of the lines the gaming community seemingly has to draw in the sand.

    The Crew 2 Beta Registration Is Up

    I tried it (albeit quickly) and was rather underwhelmed, too.

    Games coming shortly on the switch!

    Surprisingly, my son Sam isn't all that interested in playing either Fortnite or Minecraft on the Switch. I thought he was going to be for sure but he's still so wrapped up in Zelda. I would really love to see a Mario Golf again.
