    Of the 494 cars available in this game, i currently have 491 🤗
     
    One car, a Porsche, is locked behind an invitation, so that's in the lap of the rng gods 🙈
    The other two, a Ferrari and a McLaren, I'm waiting to reappear in Hagerty's Legend Cars. The Mc was there last week but very annoyingly it had sold out by the time I'd raised the 20 million required, so will have to wait for it to rotate around again...

    I said Goldeneye on the N64 in chat the other night but DOOM is probably my earliest FPS.  Though both were played on other peoples computers / consoles.  I think my first FPS was probably Battlefield 1942 as I can't think of any earlier than that.

    As we were discussing the other day, my Astro's are 16 year old and on to their third generation of console but being wired they seem to just keep going and going.  But it would be nice to go wireless and retire my current Astro's and de-clutter the bulky set up I have for my PC for one headset to rule them all.  I'm in no rush though so will wait until release and a lot more in depth reviews to drop before deciding.

    I love Astro's for the sound but I found they made my ears ridiculously hot.
     
    Greboth suggested a Seinheiser headset and astro mixamp combo that I've been using the last 5 years and show no sign of wear or tear, so I'm all good too.
     
    These do look nice though 🙂

    By the leaked information and report to investors it should be Q1 2025 so a year and a bit rather than 2 years.  Still, plenty of time for it to ge delayed yet.

    As ever with CoD the hit detection is meh.  Dying to what feels, and weirdly occasionally sounds like, a sniper shot but seeing the kill cam and it shows you getting hot 4 or 5 times.  Yet other games, going on a spree knowing the enemy team are probably at the end of the horrible deaths.
     
    That said overall, I enjoyed what I played last night and great to be playing the old maps again.  The new unlock system is weird in that it doesn’t really tell you what to do or how to do it - in that it says complete 3 daily challenges to unlock.  Which I unlocked but as far as I can tell I didn’t complete any daily challenges so I dunno.  But I like the system in general, being able to unlock the perks, greades, kill streaks etc. you want rather than just grinding levels unlocking loads of stuff you’re not going to use to get to the stuff you want.

    Oh @Luseth you are too kind!
     
    Wiping out parties is never part of the fun and it was your first times so it's hard to navigate the options you have in front of you. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and watching you all slowly fall into your characters was great to see. You should all be very proud of yourselves.

    Simple - $, or probably more accurately, $$$$$$$$$
     
    Sony have previously paid for special access or content to come to PS before Xbox.  So it could be that contract, which may have been signed before MS bought Activision, is still in effect.  Or potentially MS don't care about PS having content first - the console war really happens in the early years of a generation so by now it's relatively settled not to mention consoles are, or were for a long time, sold at a loss with money being in the games.  MS gets the billions a year from the game either way so don't care too much about shifting less consoles.

    Well that was a bit of understatement as I realised last night I'm halfway through Polyatomic now with 25/51 done.
     
    I probably could have finished all Polyatomic's by now but slowed down as, while unlocking Polyatomic, I've been making sure I've completed the gold and platinum mastery challenges too.  So I've unlocked Polyatomic on guns but carried on using them to get another 100-200 kills with it.  I haven't done the Polyatomic mastery though as I figure I'll do that when I go for Orion.

    So the second part is to be played this coming Sunday 🙂 I am quite looking forward to dying....
     
    On a serious note I did enjoy the first part though I think we were very much finding our feet. I don't know about the other guy's but it definately stoked my interest and I like the idea of having a regular group playing (how that pans out with home life though is probably the issue). My wife has also shown interest and it has led us onto a new hobby in which we have been creating, buying and painting various models such as D&D and warhammer. My wife is definately better at painting than I am but I have done 1 or 2 and have a set still to build and paint.
     
    But yeah I am quite looking forward to this Sunday ^_^ If it goes well I'd definately be up for future sessions, maybe even doing them in person as well seeing as a few of us don't live all that far apart. We just need to convince Elliot to carry on being DM or see if any of us would be willing to give it a go!
     
    Also I have 4 sets of D&D dice already, I feel like that is a bit of a rabbit hole if I'm being honest....

    CPP Benchmark video with some interesting findings.
     
    TL;DW
    - 8Gb VRAM is pretty much required.  It’s playable on lower but 1% lows get very low
    - V-sync should be kept off.  1% lows are far better with it off (some GPU’s seeing 10x the fps) though doesn’t seem to change average fps.
    - 1080p recommended but 1440p possible on high end GPU’s.  4k is pretty much a no go even on an RTX4090.
    - FPS drop with city size is not linear.  0-25k population saw a large drop while 75k-100k only a few fps.
     
    It’s worth a watch to get the full picture but they were the points that stood out for me.

    It’s a weird one as you have people like in the video saying performance is unplayable.  Yet others, like Biffa, running it at 1440p with almost everything on high and getting a solid 60fps (v-sync) while streaming.  Now yes, Biffa has a 4090, but with his settings and streaming you’d expect to see some issues.
     
    I’ve seen 2 plausible answers; the first is a bug that means low isn’t low settings such as keeping the different LoD textures loaded even though the high res won’t ever be used.  There’s also already been a bug found that the game defaults to the system resolution even though it doesn’t say it has and you have to manually change it back.
     
    The other is hardware though sample size is relatively low still.  But it seems those with GPU’s with lots of VRAM aren’t suffering with performance as much.  Then those with with high VRAM and high system RAM again are suffering even fewer problems.  Why it needs so much VRAM and RAM though is up in the air and something that will need to be fixed if they want it to run on consoles as planned.
     
    Neither excuse the game being launched as it is but it’ll be interesting to see how quickly they can fix it.  As it could give an indication as to if it’s just a bug or a systemic issue with the game.
     
    Personally I’m keeping my preorder though so will report back how it runs.

    That depends what exact question you’re asking.
     
    Are longshots easier in hardcore? most definitely.
     
    Are platinum challenges easier in hardcore? not always.
     
    The amount of camping that goes on in hardcore means less kills and so less long shots.  That’s fine for some guns, like the M4, as they’re just so difficult to get longshots in core ao it’s better to do slowly in HC than not at all.  Other guns though, like the ISO hemlock or fss hurricane spring to mind, are piss easy in core and I think probably makes them quicker to do in core.
