Very cool.

Seriously guys, Forza Horizon 2 is so much fun. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone with a Xbox One who's ever liked any racing or driving game of any sort.

Awesome radio stations too:

Chvrches
War on Drugs
Pixies
The Clash
Cut Copy
etc.

I will be playing that shit in a week, hopefully you're still enjoying it by then because I will not feel complete until I have forced your car off of a cliff.

Oh, I will be (except I'm in Texas & Mexico the 12th - 22nd or 23rd).

I took these myself from the in-game camera.

Interference poll: should I buy Shadow of Mordor? For reference, I love Skyrim.

Honestly, it's easy to say this, but the relevant comparison for Shadow of Mordor is Assassin's Creed. The nemesis system is cool, and you have more freedom, but it's functionally a LotR-themed AC.

It's nothing like Elder Scrolls at all, except - maybe - in the really intricate skill trees and rune system.

It is, however, a lot of fun.

Ugh. I'm not a huge fan of AC. Liked the first one, sort of like the one with the pirates, but it gets so repetitive... I'll have to look at some gameplay videos to make up my mind.

I stopped playing Watch Dogs about 2/3rds of the way through. There are a couple of missions that really made me go "ick" to the point that I couldn't get through them. That, and the main character is totally a psychopath and would be the villain in any other game. I got a bit sick of playing someone with his only redeemable qualities coming when I go out of my way to stop a petty crime (even though I'm pretty sure - the story got tough to follow - he's got someone tied to a chair and is paying another guy to actively torture him for the entire game). It's one thing to play a morally flawed or even "bad" character, but he should at least have some sort of moral conflict about doing terrible things. The main character in Watch Dogs seems to go out of his way to be awful and I couldn't take it any more.

I've bought Civilization: Beyond Earth on Friday and it is phenomenal - I already have about 10 hours played and it's an amazingly deep game. I love the new "tech web" and the quests system and it is already apparent to me that there is no way you could possibly play this game the same way twice. I'm about 3/4s of the way through my first play through (I really botched the opening 100 turns getting used to the new systems) so it's still up in the air as to whether or not I'll win but that fact alone (Civ tends to become a cake walk about two thirds of the way through for me because I know how to set up the end game for pretty much any victory I want) makes me want to keep going. If you liked Civ at all then definitely check out Civ:BE. I'm so happy with this game because Civilization, going back to the very first one that I played on a Tandy (!!), is my favourite game of all time (TIE Fighter is #2 - a game that desperately needs to be remade).

Oh man, the LucasArts news is wonderful. I was a teen in the 1990s, so this is what I grew up with.

TIE Fighter, Sam & Max, and more LucasArts classics get re-released · Newswire · The A.V. Club

Sam & Max! Indiana Jones! X-Wing!

Day of the Tentacle next, please.

And Gabriel Knight is also getting a re-release (with a remaster):
