Yes it’s a mess and right now a failure when it comes to the top level motorsports. Ocon is clearly very talented as is George, yet Mercedes will do nothing to secure their drives. Money is not the issue here, so it does create an issue that they are now both surplus to requirements. This situation is exacerbated by the obvious limitation on racing seats available, with half the grid being pay drivers. F1 used to be the best drivers in the world (with a couple of gentlemen drivers), now it’s a handful of good drivers and a range of wealthy also-ran’s to fill the numbers.
No sign of any new teams till the regulations change and so far the 2021 regulations have failed to alter the key stumbling block, that being the prohibitive cost of the power unit. Until then, we hope drives becomes available in other teams.28/09/2018 at 9:40 am in reply to: Gaming is all about war, fighting and bleak dystopian futures…! #43832
Yet it’s nothing new, but it shows how the wider population are controlled by marketing. Literally being told what to like and what not to like if you want to be up on the playground chat with your friends.27/09/2018 at 10:34 pm in reply to: Valve: Only 118,000 wheel players on Steam at max! #43824
One thing you have to consider is, what percentage of those games are driving games?
Then what percentage of driving games players are using a wheel?
Over what period? You might find the most committed players regularly use a wheel.
How have the stats changed? I would bet a very different stat 8 years ago, this would show a radical rise in wheel use and ownership.
Data like this can be quite misleading when quoted out of context.
The key aspect for wheel companies is understanding what prevents growth.18/09/2018 at 11:24 pm in reply to: Gaming is all about war, fighting and bleak dystopian futures…! #43192
It does seem to be a reoccurring theme these days and all a bit repetitive. A games company gets a success, then everyone attempts to copy that formula a safe bet, rather than creating something original. In the end, its all more dark death and destruction, trying to get a few headlines and ultimately, taking sales off of each other.16/09/2018 at 4:18 pm in reply to: Singapore: Ocon or Perez who was to blame for the contact? #42983
Yes, the on-board shows that Perez turned into Ocon, he took him out and then tried to take out Sirotkin. Expect Force India to bring in rules, but its unlikely Ocon will be in the car again as apparently Stroll wants to be in the car for Sotchi.16/09/2018 at 3:33 pm in reply to: What did you think of the Forza Horizon 4 demo? #42978
Yep, the PC version is a whole different beast, it really is a taste of the next gen and another amazing example of how far we’ve come. Here’s another comparison video with the PC version.16/09/2018 at 3:20 pm in reply to: Show us your racing rig or gaming setup? #4297516/09/2018 at 2:28 pm in reply to: Singapore: Ocon or Perez who was to blame for the contact? #42965
Either way it’s not a good day for Perez or Force India.15/09/2018 at 11:31 pm in reply to: Nickelodeon Kart Racers Trailer #42932
It’s a competitive genre, Sonic Racing is probably the favourite right now but we’ll keep an eye on all of them including this. As it happens, I just got sent a trailer for this one a few days back.14/09/2018 at 12:55 am in reply to: What did you think of the Forza Horizon 4 demo? #42760
I’ll definitely check it out in 4k, though I always prefer frame rate over resolution. Will spend a bit more time on the demo over the weekend.
EDIT: Just uploaded another comparison video.

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. Having said that, I felt it handled well though I have encountered steering issues, also the in game rotation is not the same as my actual rotation which makes it impossible for me to drive with the standard cockpit cam.
I’m down into the 1:58’s, almost did a low 1:57 but made a mistake on the final chicane, I have a 1:56 in me but sadly not the time to put the sectors together. I noticed Gamermuscle didn’t like the FFB but missed the specifics on what he didn’t like, I guess more consistent resistance matching the feedback from the tyres could be better. Also the wet weather has way too much grip on the rumble strips and white lines, suffice to say it’s still a work in progress.13/09/2018 at 10:34 pm in reply to: Hey everyone! My name really is Earl. #42747
Hi Earl, good to see you on the forum, and as you know, I can ramble on about anything and hopefully as we gett this forum going, we’ll see more people interested in every aspect of racing games, motorsport and retro gaming.11/09/2018 at 8:20 pm in reply to: pCARS2 DLC: Ferrari Essentials Pack – Impressions #42606
Certainly sounds like there’s a lot to get your teeth into in terms of debating the handling. I’ve popped a link to this one our FB page, will be good to get more feedback. The car being drawn to one side is interesting, I’m assuming the chassis were designed for the consistent power output.
I always enjoy Mugello, so smooth.11/09/2018 at 7:53 pm in reply to: Forza horizon 4 demo #42605
No date on a demo yet, when we know you’ll see it in the news.
