It's still a week until F1 2020 comes out and I'm so bored. I'm boycotting nearly every game company that exists over politics and I genuinely can't find anything to play for the week I'm waiting.

What do you all play? Do you boycott the major companies like I do or do you play anything you like and try to ignore where the money goes?

Replaying Sleeping Dogs again.

Playing FF series on the switch and just started playing Xenoblade Chronicles.

Waiting for f1 2020 as well, and also Cyberpunk. Just canceled my Bloodlines 2 preorder, them dropping Chris Avellone's contribution from the game was the last straw, there was already enough warning signs but them removing content was just a sign that they prefer virtue signaling over providing content to their consumers.

I never got around to playing Sleeping Dogs, I always said I would and just never did. I wonder how long it would take to deliver it.

You're getting it too? Who you planning on picking as your teammate in MyTeam?

I have a bad feeling about 2077. I feel like that one will burn a lot of people. I wouldn't pre-order it if I was you, we've seen hardly anything (unless I missed something) and it's already been delayed twice.

It depends on who they have as the secondaries and if you have the option of choosing some legacy drivers. At the moment Raikonnen, but I will have to do one run at least with Ricciardo, be all patriotic and make an all Aussie team.

If you can go and get past drivers or drivers in other categories then Takuma Sato or maybe Alonso.

Its the only franchise I get every year no matter what, but I'm glad they have brought in this aspect considering way back in the 90's I remember playing a PS1 game that you could do that and also still play a PC game called Grand Prix Manager that is still getting modded to this day.

Sleeping Dogs was good, a good story interesting setting and the difference in combat compared to the GTA games is fun. The driving is a bit off but overall I think its still a great game.

2077 has me worried as well, but I'm trying to ignore all the PR stuff now and hoping that some of the virtue signalling we've been seeing is just marketing and that the actual game will be largely unaffected.

I'll be very surprised if you're allowed to start off with F1 drivers. I'm thinking you'll have to pick an F2 driver as a teammate from the beginning otherwise it'll be too easy.

I doubt that's the case, but I think they should try to do that kind of thing for 2021.

I heard they're bringing in a Battle Pass, like Fortnite. Not sure how to feel about that. You can get new liveries, celebrations and badges apparently.

I might as well try it. At least I'll have something to play for the week.

I feel like wokeness won't be the real issue. I think it'll be a genuinely overhyped game that doesn't meet expectations. Maybe I'm just overly negative.

I'm tempering my expectations. If its as good as Dues Ex Mankind divided and human revolution I will be happy so the bar I am setting isnt that high.

People have crazy expectations but I just want a solid RPG with a good setting and a good story. If it can deliver that I will be happy.

You might be right about the driver line ups but not to sure how it will be implemented. It might just be the current F2 lineup (so Mick Schumacher has to be my pick as a Schumey fan from way back).

Unless I misunderstood their statement, they said that he had left early in development and that pretty much everything he worked on had already been changed.
