Ahh PGR 3 & 4..great memories! Love the PGR series and Bizarre Creations (RIP).
TDU was a solid but flawed gem; TDU2 was a rushed disaster thanks to Atari. Loved crusing around despite the car handling being awful.
Yes, TDU2 was trashy yet fun. There was something nice about the feeling of just cruising, driving for the enjoyment of driving despite the limited physics. Will be interesting to see what the new version comes out like.15/12/2018 at 10:29 am in reply to: Ride 3 Thread #49293
I havnt bought the game yet but was extremely disappointed to see when Alan did a lap of north west 200 on the stream theyd got the track wrong again. Left out the chicane at start and finish. the road is there they just didn’t use it. Macau is wrong too again!!!
Yes it is a surprise and a shame that improvements requested by the community weren’t included. No word from the developers as to why?10/12/2018 at 2:56 pm in reply to: pCARS 3 confirmed on GT Planet by Ian Bell #48911
No surprise, they’ve still got an open market to play with. But I would be surprised if there weren’t more developers aiming for this market share in the coming years.
It won our Racing Game of the Year, Best Environment and Best Audio awards but there was no getting away from the bugs and inconsistencies that ruined the launch. Obviously Ian made it clear that he feels the handling is already award winning, so we’ll wait and see where the other changes come?

Kevin is finishing his review will be up this week and if he has time, we’ll get a team chat up as well.10/12/2018 at 11:34 am in reply to: Asetto Corsa Competizione Early Access on PC starts September 12th #48905
I’ve been playing it, will make a video at some point so won’t go into too much detail for now. But overall I’m very impressed with the visuals, the physics work well but like all elements they still need work.
You still happy with the graphics Alan?
I think ACC is a jaggie mess at 1080P. 4K is doable so long as you have a GTX 2080Ti or a 1080Ti. We have a long way to go with ACC but right now I’m not super impressed with the visuals.
I haven’t played it for some time and likely won’t get the chance again this year but I will take a look at it in the months to follow.06/12/2018 at 11:24 am in reply to: Ride 3 Thread #48556
Oh it takes time but don’t give up, that just shows you’re too reliant on the line.
Look to other objects around you, look to your exit point and aim for the exit of the corner, you’ll gradually string it all together. Start on a course you know well and work from there.03/12/2018 at 12:33 pm in reply to: Ride 3 Thread #48489
Generally for videos we use, it will need to be more defined. A performance test wouldn’t be of a great deal of interest, compared to say, winning a race on a high difficulty, nailing it with all assists off on a difficult track, comparing bike sounds or handling models. On your multi-cam the black drop shadow is unnecessary and hence really irritating. Also, lose the racing line 😉
How are you finding the game?30/11/2018 at 9:42 pm in reply to: Ride 3 Thread #48450
Nice, ultra-wide looks cool!
Yes, I’ll be giving my frank opinions on the game with Kevin on Tuesday. There’s a lot to talk about. What are your first impressions?27/11/2018 at 11:38 pm in reply to: F1 2018 Season Thoughts #48342
I think its been a good yer overall, more of a battle at the front with a mix of winners from the top 6 and some good mid-field action as well. For all of the media waffle, Mercedes are still the strongest tea by some margin but Ferrari are closing the gap, as are Redbull.
McLaren started the year well but switched development to the 2019 car back in May, making the rest of a year a never-ending test. Renault also ceased development of this years car as soon as they had established 4th place in the constructors. Force India were surprisingly strong and I look forward to seeing how they develop. Haas failed to maximise their package and I really feel Romain is holding the team back. Torro Rosso worked well as a test bed for Honda which showed regular signs of improvement though still a lack of reliability. Finally Williams, a dismal year and in any other team Claire would be out of a job by now, a total disaster.
Driver wise we all know Alonso is amazing. Lewis wasnt put under enough consistent pressure, Vettel did more damage to his own championship than anyone else could do. Daniel Ricciardo is amazing as ever and could have been a title contender if the team let him, Max hasn’t learned anything yet, lets seem him race clean under championship pressure. More later when I have time.26/11/2018 at 12:21 pm in reply to: Fav Retro inspired racing game? #48209
Yes looking forward to a hands-on this one, had mixed impressions on the handling so far, mainly because it handles more like ridge racer than Virtua Racing.23/11/2018 at 6:35 pm in reply to: F1 2018 DX12 Beta #48161
Thanks Nelly, going to create a streaming thread to get more feedback on what games people would like to see me play.23/11/2018 at 1:29 pm in reply to: What do you make of the PS Classic lineup? #48046
Perhaps more important than the list of games is the fact it’s using a not-brilliant freeware emulator to power the whole thing. Very lazy, very cheap. A definite no-buy from me. Extremely disappointed in Sony’s cash-grab here.
Absolutely, the whole thing is an embarrassment to Sony and ridicules their own heritage.23/11/2018 at 1:28 pm in reply to: Street of Rage Live Music Concert #48045
I would have loved to have been at an event like this, properly embracing gaming culture of the early 90’s.23/11/2018 at 1:27 pm in reply to: F1 2018 DX12 Beta #48041
Thanks Nelly, good play with the controller there. I can’t test this on my rig for now as I’m actually lowering the graphics so I can stream PC games but as ever, it does look smooth. Looking forward to streaming my career.14/11/2018 at 1:49 pm in reply to: F1 2018 Conspiracy Theories Thread #47219
We had a couple f good one this weekend.
The FIA calling in Vettel to the weigh bridge in the middle of qualifying before he had set a time and potentially influencing the entire qualifying session. Then blaming Vettel for damaging the weigh bridge, all a bit petty.
Of course there are a few floating round about Ocon, but in reality, Max was the source of his own demise. Though you could arguge that the FIA invented rules to put against Ocon.
