    Silly mid-season driver transfers..

    Nah he'll become your teammate. 😛

    Yeah it is good I'm not too worried about it getting out of control as it keeps things fresh though I'll admit it might have worked better with the way the 2017 game handled it.

    Personally I think it has something to do with the contract windows because in the 2017 and earlier games you have 1 mid season one and one end of season one which might have worked t ohelp keep things more organised but because you have I think 3 or 4 contract windows in the season drivers can move any time within those. If they stuck to the old setup used in 2017 and earlier it might have been better given then there was only 2 transfer windows and the player could only move to the teams most interested in them.

    Must the Moto GP 19 game is a bit easy I've got the AI cranked up to 70 and I'm still beating it. The graphics are really nice but the AI is somewhat slow I expected more speed so either I'm better at bike racing games than I thought or this game is easy although I'll admit I've only been racing rookies cup races so far. Maybe it'll get tougher once I go up the order

    There is a car performance update incoming I think CM are just getting the launch period over with first. I haven't played it yet but I'm looking forward to giving F2 a go when I do. I won't be touching career yet mainly because I want to finish careers on the older games first that I have on the go as I have careers on the go on 16, 17 and 18 and I want oat least finish one of those before I get one started up on 19. I'd say 16 is the one I'll likely finish first mainly because once you've unlocked al the upgrades there's nothing more to do in it. Whereas in 17 you have the classic car events and in 2018 with the rule changes you'll always need to earn points to keep your upgrades up to scratch so at least with 17, 18 and 19 also with the driver transfers the games always kept fresh.

    Yeah they rtied to use a more official TV graphics style I just don't think I like the style of it much tbh.

    Yeah seeing Aarava's vids and that ultimately is what swung me. I was still sceptical until I heard about the addition of driver transfers but once I heard that drivers can move teams and even retire and be replaced by F2 drivers I was sold. The only thing I'm not a big fan of is the new HUD as I think that's going to be tricky to read at a glance. It's OK for TV even though I didn't like it there either but I don't think it'll work too well on a game. I've not played it yet so can't speak from experience but from what I've seen Codies would have been better sticking to their own HUD

    Yeah I was planning on holding off but in the end decided to buy it on disc from Amazon as it's cheaper than getting it from Steam I haven't played it yet but I've heard the AI are tougher and more aggressive this year. I'll still hold off on playing it until I'm finished my other careers but I thought that at least if I have it I can stil lboot it up and just stick with F2 until I'm ready. I'm looking forward to trying my hand at F2 anyway so I've the new F1 and the new Moto GP games on their way to me. As for watching streamers I sometimes watch people playing games on Mixer mostly games I play or have played though. Lately I've been watching people playing the Tomb Raiders

    Strange that the disc copy of F1 2019 is cheaper than direct through Steam. Was thinking I might go disc this time as the last disc I got was 2017 so with interviews rule changes F2 and driver transfers all been added to the game since 2017 I'm tempted to go with the disc version given it may take a while to download. Was thinking I might pick up the Moto GP game up too as I'm quite impressed by the graphics on the new one.

    Vettel must really hate Canada now 😛 He's jus tDNF'd ther on one of my career modes

    F1 2019 A disaster.

    I agree I was thinking of doing an F2 season before I started career mostly to get a feel for how they handle before I take on the scenario's. Not sure which F2 team I'll do yet but most likely one of the bigger ones

    F1 2019 A disaster.

    In fairness CM have designed their games to be the FIFA to F1 games I think which means they have to appeal to casual fans as well as the sim racers that's for me why things like T-cam are in besides I use T-cam myself simply because it's a lot easier to see what's up the road. I'd say so far they've done a pretty decent job but I can't speak for 2019 yet as I've not playedit and it likel ywill be a while before I get a chance to. But with F2 an driver transfers in the game it's likely only a matter of time before I do try it.

    F1 2019 A disaster.

    Indeed I never judge a game bfeoer giving it a try. I can certainly see myself getting 2019 at some point as I like the sound of the new features but with the fact I do have career modes on the go on the other games I want to finish at least 1 o r2 of those first. I'm hoping to work on doing some of it over the next few days and weeks but we'll see.

    The Stuff Thread

    Yeah we all go through rough times even I've gone through times where I've just hated life. I've not got to the point where I've felt suicidal or anything but I have been depressed to the point where I jus t don't want to do anything not even eat or drink and I usually quite like my food so it's unusual for that to happen. I think it's just natural that we go through these periods.

    The Game Thread!

    Yeah that combined with the interviews and rule changes that were introduced last year will make the career very interesting to play. I'm definitely tempted to just say to hell with this and buy it but I've just got too much on with other stuff atm. Maybe it'll become too much to resist but I want to finish the careers on the other games first before I purchase and play around with this one.

    The Game Thread!

    Yeah I don't use it mainly because I can't afford it. But then I don't use cockpit view either so I'm not sure I'd really benefit. I do like the new features and I think the driver transfers along with the rule change system they introduced last year in 2018 will make career modes on 2019 very interesting to play for the full 10 seasons. My problem is trying to find the time to really experience and enjoy it. It's not that I don't like the features it's more there aren't enough hours in the day. If I do get it before I finish my other careers though it's likely I'll just stick to the F2 mode until I'm ready. But that'll only likely happen if it ends up on a Steam sale or something. I think the fact they added driver transfers as well as F2 has made it a buy me game eventually for me just not quite a full price one considering I don't spend the time I used to playing these days like I did back when the series started with F1 2010
  17. sjsharp2010

    The Game Thread!

    Yeah I'm not going to be buying it at launch either as I don't think the changes are significant enough for me to buy full price. I've still got careers on the other games to finish too so I'll focus on them as I still have careers on 16, 17 and 18 I want to finish first. I admit I like the driver transfers and the F2 storyline bit at the beginning of career and the addition of F2 in general but I don't feel it's worth paying full price for when I don't spend as much time playing these games as I used to. I still play them and like them I just tend to lean towards other games these days.

    Must admit driver transfers being in F1 2019 is a big shock. A very crafty move from CM to just throw it in there

    Nice was thinking of getting that myself at some point.

    Worst pre release ever!

    Wrll there's nothing wrong with a little optimism but right now I'm not planning on pre ordering it so that las t thing is wrong as I haven't preordered yet and I'm not planning to atm. ATM my only plan is to finish the careers I have on the go in the previous games

    Worst pre release ever!

    It could be they spent those 2 years ironing out the bugs in the engine and previous games rather than adding a ton of new features we don't know let's see how the game is first before we judge it. I'm all for criticizing CM when it's needed but lets not jump on the hate bandwagon before it's necessary. I'm still not sure if I'll get it on day 1 mostly because I've not finished my other careers yet but even if I do I'll probably hold of on playing It until I am done with those I'll likely just buy it and let it sit in my Steam library for a time until I'm finished with my other careers. Either that or download and stick with F2.

    EA play starts today will be interesting to see what they do with Fifa 20 now that the Journey is finished. Personally if it were me I'd go with either another story mode or expand the womens side of the game as I'd love to be able to do something like play a league or something with the womens teams because atm all we have is the cup tournament mode or friendlies with them. I've heard rumours tha t hey'er considering a FIFA street option but tbh that wouldn't interest me. I think if there isn't anything significant though from a single player perspective then I'll skip 20.

    Since the campaigns are really short I don' ttemnd to pick up the COD' sand Battlefields until they're really cheap tbh. I recently picked up Mortal Kombat's 10 and 11 so #I'm looking forward to playing those eventually as I did quiet enjoy Mk 9 and I've always kind of liked the MK series
