    WRC 8 vs DiRT Rally 2.0

    Never heard so much utter garbage in my whole life. Wrc 'feels' faster because its 30fps, in this day and age that's an absolute joke. Audio is gash, visuals too, physics are broken as cars can bounce and take off at the slightest hint of a tap, and be stopped dead in their tracks on the smallest of objects. Co driver sounds like hes giving a WW2 news report on a radio broadcast. Only thing it has going for it is the amazing track design and half decent ffb Also, if you think dr2 is slow, it's you, not the game, git gud ya scrub 😂, when you are flat out on the absolute edge it's hard to keep up what's going on

    DiRTy Gossip about WRC8

    FH drops to 1080p in 60fps mode on X Dr2 is 4k on X and has been since day 1. Fh4 drops to 1080p in 60fps mode, exactly what wrc8 should have imo, a 1080p 60fps mode for X and pro Dirt games have never had dynamic weather. Project cars has amazing dynamic weather though, time of day and even seasons, all with full grids which makes me wonder sometimes that it's possible in other racing genres

    DiRTy Gossip about WRC8

    Looks awful, sounds awful, co driver sounds like he's about to jump in a spitfire and defend the white cliffs of Dover, physics look like we have teleported back to 1997 and v rally has just landed, epic store on pc, 30fps on all consoles, even X.... staying well clear of that abomination 😂

    Too old for survey!

    35 and didnt qualify, and know a few in their 20's who also didn't qualify, so I guess its across the whole age range, either that or they need less males applying 😂

    2001 Focus and Subaru

    Of course I know what they are, I just never knew the early 2000 scoobies also had them at the end of the exhaust. They're simply there to meet road regs, although I doubt they're effective right at the back, who knows lol

    Your thoughts on the pricing for Season 3 + 4

    Apologies if I didnt make myself clear. I was indeed referring to costs. Simply wanted to point out that the base game is more expensive via digital due to the added losses they get from digital sales, so realistically content within dlc costs more than it does in the base game as they pass those stoppages onto us. I was not sure if you were comparing the base game on disk price or digital. And I am in no way 'sniping' at anyone if that was aimed at me, nothing wrong with a healthy back and forth on a forum 😉

    That isnt a catalytic converter, and my X version of dr2 does it. Off the top of my head the R5 fiesta does it under lower light conditions

    Your thoughts on the pricing for Season 3 + 4

    The costs certainly do differ from country to country. Take Brazil for example. Someone I know has to pay 200 BRA real for this new season pass, which is a whopping £40. But my point was that digital content incurs more charges. I look at it from another perspective, the base game was standard price, it wasnt a £100 game, the base version had the typical codies rally title amount of content, the optional dlc is just that, optional. It will only appeal to people who love playing the game, as it's worth the money for the amount of hours they will play it. They were always clear about what content the first seasons had, and we all knew there was more dr1 content not announced like Finland and Greece, and put 2 and 2 together. But each to their own mate, they'll never please all of us, it's an impossible task

    Your thoughts on the pricing for Season 3 + 4

    You're forgetting to factor in the extra costs that they are charged by MS, Sony, steam etc for digital content sales. Not entirely sure of the figures and obviously it changes per country but they all take a large slice per sale, sure I read it eats more into their profit than disk manufacturing costs. That taxation is transferred onto us. Something to think about maybe. Or not, it doesn't really bother me, I tend to look at how good a game is, how rare it is we get a very good game in that genre, and how many hours of fun I am going to have from it. DR2.0 is amazing, we dont get many rally titles, let alone good ones, and I already have hundreds of hours on it, I'm not prepared to miss out on content because it may be a few £ over what I wanted to pay, and nor am I prepared to waste something even more valuable to me, my time, on thinking about the few £.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Force Feedback

    Road feedback is poor yes, but not completely missing for me on X, nor is tyre slip

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Force Feedback

    This must be a platform specific issue because the ffb feels great for me on X, with a TX wheel. I have run a stage on dr1 and then dr2 straight after, several times and dr2 feels better every time for me Its far from perfect, but so was dr1.

    I'm in the U.K so I wont vote on the price, over here its £24.99 and worth every penny in my book. 15 cars, 2 rally stages and the rallycross stages. Awesome. I hope they do more seasons. It's not very often we get a very good rally game come along, I hope they support it for a long time, this game will last me years as it is

    Just to back up what I said ealier, watch this. Skip forward a little to the '01 footage, you can clearly hear the higher note of the 2001 (ish) cars, DR2.0 sounds very close
  14. They said they fixed it? As you say its still there and still does it to me all the time 😭
