Epic bought Cloudgine - http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2 ... -cloudgine

Good sign for Crackdown 3, maybe what encouraged MS to buy Playfab.

I hope the new Age of Empires is part of the Game Pass offer.
Has any more news surfaced about when it may get a console release?

I know it’s doesn’t impact games but Microsoft makes an absolute fortune from their cloud based stuff.

This, Amazon even more so it is how can do things like Prime, Video, Music, Fire Devices etc. all dirt cheap for what you are getting.

I hope so, I never owned it back in the day but my brother had it and I enjoyed playing it. It was one of those games I never got around to buying. :(

Both of those 360 games will be mine. I'll give them a play and relive Crazy Taxi [even if the reason I like that game is more due to Simpsons Road Rage].

I was tempted to start getting the forza 7 dlc when it started going cheap after the launch window, but then i remembered the lootboxes.

It's all he talks about.

Does he even own Forza 7 to consider the DLC?

Forza 7 is already down to £20 in several places but i'm not getting it at all on principle

Other than that I refused to buy Forza 7 and NFS Payback on principle because of their lootboxes.

I would have said Turn 10/Playground Games but Forza 7 kind of ruined it.

This can join forza 7 in the "wait for a year until its reduced or very cheap second hand" club.

To me its the principle - i haven't played shadow of war, forza 7

Like I said in the Forza thread, I shall not be purchasing any game with any kind of loot box bullshit in there

however the forza 7 debacle has refocused a few things for me.

but I think the fiasco around forza 7's lootboxes and 700+ car roster has perhaps pushed me away from it

If they had made forza 7 free to play i'd have less of a problem - microtransactions and boxes are the faustian pact .

Why did they waste time with customised driver overalls? :lol: I think I've seen the driver maybe 3 times in the entire history of playing Forza games They've got to pad the lootboxes with something desirable to get you to spend money.

After forza's fall from grace i'm more curious about this.

I suspect petercrisp started this thread after making a point in the forza thread about my not being able to buy forza 7 in good conscience due to microtransaction lootboxes, i'm glad this thread has become a shitshow.

- Back to work but these are quotes from posts with nothing to do with Forza...

I don't, i was considering getting the dlc ahead of buying the game to save money in the long run. As for talking about lootboxes, if companies didn't do them i'd stop talking about them. If having principles about anti-consumer practices makes me "actually mental" then i guess they're coming to take me away haha...

I don't know if he owns Forza 7 or not but I suppose if that's all he talks about, I can see why that'd get annoying.

Pretty decent sale, quite a few tempting offers.

Word of warning for anyone thinking of purchasing any Artifex Mundi games, these games have had their prices increased and then 'reduced' in this sale back to their original prices. Absolutely shocking business practice, pretty sure there are supposed to be laws in place to stop this kind of thing.

Anyway, don't buy them.
