    It gets a lot better later in (in cutscene vs gameplay balance) IMO, although it never drops an aspiration to be a 'cinematic experience'.

    I enjoyed it quite a lot, though, on that superficial...

    In fairness, they do have to make a load of them and you only see them in cutaways. I'm trying to work out if either PES or FIFA (new versions) are worthwhile investments for someone who last bought...

    The antagonist is meant to be Immortan Joes son, no?

    (although AFAIK it's a very shoe-horned in reference, where the game was really designed as entirely standalone)

    Here's a thing I've not seemingly seen mentioned... a lot of graphic-changing mods, at least when I was doing it, would use stuff like 3ds max and/or photoshop.

    Normally those'd be pirate copies...

    I think the predecessor did that (VRAM thing) too, no?

    I'd like to know how medium details compares to PS3/4 graphics settings, though. Also worth noting the minimum is apparently for 800x600...

    I honestly don't know if this is a sarcastic comment or not. Wouldn't there be a cost to obtaining an issuable Steam key, as Valve presumably don't want to just become a free distribution/hosting...

    From what I recall - and this is from a while ago, so the situation probably has changed a bit - one of the specific drivers for lower pricing is that there are street markets selling pirated copies,...

    The reason that the Vulture is (argued to be) overpriced is how outlandishly effective it is as a combat ship, though, rather than the difficulty of earning that money. And I think in the latter...

    40k(!)

    I've seen an Annie for 56k, and both a Python and (IIRC) Dropship for twice that, so I think they didn't just change the base amounts but increase the scaling range.
