    I think they'll sooner make a Linux only title than VR.

    Bought Cities: Skylines on sale last week. Have had quite a lot of fun with it so far. Might be interested in some of the expansions later down the line. On my first city I tried hiking up the tax rate after getting a decent sized city and then everyone left and massive debt ensued. Lesson learnt.

    Some mods really improve that, most importantly the one that lets you assign where each lane goes.
    What is the sin bin? Is it some kind of Catholic skip area?

    That would be great, I find a lot of the time the traffic is just the cars being useless and only using two of the four lanes available.

    The system the game uses is logical but not intuitive. The cars use lanes based on the number of lanes leading off a road and destinations. For example if you have a 3 lane highway with 1 lane going off and a 2nd going off later, the cars for the 1st turning off will be in the "slow" lane and the cars for the 2nd turning off will be in the middle lane, they filter across as they pass the junctions. If there are 2 lanes coming off the 3 lane highway then cars turning off will occupy the 2 slower lanes. There is a guide somewhere but once you understand that, it makes road planning much easier and explains why some lanes are just never used.

    PC people. I have bought Motorsport Manager and whan I can play it I like it, however every time I do it freezes. The screen freezes but I can hear the game carrying on in the background as usual and I am stumped as to why. Here are my specs and the games reccomended specs, is that the reason, I know little of CPUs and graphics etc to know myself.

    My specs

    Windows 10 Home
    Intel Core i3-4005U CPU @1.70GHz
    Intel HD Graphics Family 4400 (DirectX 12.0 runtime version, Hardware supported version 11.0)
    12gb ram

    The games

    MINIMUM:
    OS: Microsoft Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit).
    Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo P8700 @ 2.5 GHz
    Memory: 4 GB RAM
    Graphics: nVIDIA GT 335M, 512MB or AMD Radeon HD 4670, 512MB or Intel HD 4000 series
    DirectX: Version 11
    Storage: 16 GB available space

    RECOMMENDED:
    OS: Microsoft Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit)
    Processor: Intel Core i5-3470, 3.20GHz or AMD FX-6300, 3.5Ghz
    Memory: 8 GB RAM
    Graphics: nVIDIA GeForce GTX 660, 2 GB or AMD Radeon HD 7870, 2GB or Intel HD 500 series.

    Looking at the info seems to be the processor IMO.

    What game setting are you playing it on?

    Your graphics and CPU don't look up to the task of running any games that put even moderate demand on the system, that and motorsport manager is pretty poorly optimised as it is. General rule of thumb, laptops are not good for games unless you spend an absolutely ridiculous amount on them. Games are for consoles or Desktop PCs (preferably own built or specialist built rather than off the shelf crap like Dell put out).

    Yeah It seems that way though it plays Football Manager, Crusader Kings 2 fine. Upon further tries it seems that my RAM dedicated to graphics might be causing it, its only got 128MB of dedicated Video RAM.

    Looks like I need to start saving up for a new one with a better graphics setup

    Yup, probably a combination of graphics and CPU, the older onboard graphics like that intel isn't that great..

    You should be able to get a relatively cheap laptop with a 950M / 970M on it which will pretty much run anything

    Might need a retro thread for games that decrepit.

    Well ME:A is getting slammed online currently.

    From what I have seen of it so far I am pretty underwhelmed.

    I've played 6 hours....the.Internet is being ****s like usual. Yeah the animation can be odd at times and the lighting in some areas if you don't have it turned up full(PC version) can be diabolical and lead to very poor looking very over saturated.

    But the game play and story is pretty good and that matters way more to me than how it looks.

    Well I have watched enough live streams to gather some idea and the Internet whilst over reacting isn't that far off TBH.

    Whilst you say the graphics are not that important which they are not to some degree, its a pretty poor showing for a AAA game.

    For me I'm going to wait till it is on sale to pick it up. Zelda and Horizon are keeping me busy ATM anyway.

    Story we will see from what I have seen it doesn't seem anything special.
