I really wish I knew what you guys meant by "Americanized" considering Clarkson and the gang are all the scriptwriters and the Americans also hate the "American" stuff. GT just feels way too scripted. The part James did on the Ford GT40 was cool.... which Tbsttstttststtststtsts mentioned. So I'll just stop talking.SkyRex said:Yeah, GT lost some of the TG flair, it really felt a bit americanized, but maybe they've learned for season 2. Also watched the new TG, which also wasn't as good as the old, but they seem to learn and focus more on Rory and Chris (H. not Evans), who might really make TG their own now.tbtstt said:I watched the first season and was, for the most part, very disappointed. I hope season 2 will be an improvement, the inclusion of a 037 is a step in the right direction!sqdstr said:Not gossip but anyone else on here who watches the Grand Tour?
Just watched the season 2 preview trailer on amazon and there was a Martini Lancia 037 in it.
What I really miss are those specials though. Anyone seen the TG North Pole, Patagonia, Birma, River Nile or Botswana Specials ? Those were the days
Like if you made the sky purple it'd be in Star Trek?gfRally said:I was there back in April, this is an awesome place to see, like another planet.VirtuaIceMan said:
Unfortunately, the color grading, models, lighting, and background trees all suggest DR. I mean, we could tin foil hat it into something.... but... the energy and charisma just isn't there.BadD0g said:Hey, where's your wildly speculative spirit? This thread has been down on the tin-foil hat conspiracy energy lately, we'll take anything we can get.dgeesi0 said:or its just a dirt rally shot
I'd still honestly say it's not worth $60. $40 tops.Alf72 said:If i had to guess, i'd say exactly the same words as Mesa. If you don't wanna pay full price, keep an eye on the game because, sooner or later, eventually, it will be on sale.mesa said:Because Dirt Rally still the Best available rally simulator on the market now.
Partly true there too. Before launch I asked Kickup if it would ever become available, hopefully for free. He didn't say free, and I'm pretty sure he just said it might happen. So, in lieu of any confirmation I did pre-order a few hours before release, and everyone is fairly disappointed in the current handling.kobeshow said:Maybe he is coming from a different perspective, maybe he is mad because he wanted the pre-order car, so he bought the game in advnace without waiting for reviews, and is now left disappointed. Would CM have told us that the car will be there as DLC after release he may have ended up not buying the game, but if he liked it he might not mind paying a little extra to get the car.gfRally said:Not sure what you paid for your copy and can't remember what the pre-order price was, but the 2 packs only cost $5 total, not exactly braking the bank, and if you didn't pay the retail price anyhow, possibly you are still getting the base+DLC for less than the initial pre-order. Not trying to argue at all, I know DLC is somehow taboo around here, but I don't think its that big of a deal.JZStudios said:Somehow I don't believe that, though they are Japanese, so it could be true. Think Forza 6 and H3 had to skip on VW altogether for some reason.tbtstt said:An exclusive license deal with Polyphony perhaps? Be interesting to see what makes it into GT Sport.VirtuaIceMan said:Not DiRT related, but it's been announced that Forza Motorsport 7 won't have any Toyota production cars, only racing models. Toyota's licensing is becoming a law unto themselves!
Real shame, and it's weird that they won't license out the street cars. Even AC has a few. I always liked the MR2, but I don't want to buy an Xbone just for Forza when my wheel won't work with it. Really hope they manage to make the Win10 version actually work.Figures. And it's the worst possible outcome. Selling the pre-order bonus is always bullshit.TURBODEVIN19 said:I might be late on this, but I just noticed the Hyundai R5 rally car is available for purchase as a DLC now
The Team Booster Pack is available as well http://store.steampowered.com/app/437121/Team_Booster_Pack/
Preorder just seemed to be a way to secure sales then, if the DLC is available for everyone now, without properly communicating that prior to release.
I'm sure I can find the direct quote from @kickup somewhere in the gossip, but paraphrasingly he said "because of the suits, preorder was the only way to get the car into the game"
I can't even update my game without uninstalling something else.SkyRex said:please CM, if you have to use those nefs archives, maybe next time make smaller chunks of them...
It's really bad for my SSD if it has to rewrite all the gigabytes for every small patch...
By the way, how are clubs coming along? Once I'm ze fearless h-shifter historic champion I will need those sweet sweet leagues against real players
