  1. Hello fellow racing fans. I was at the Circuit of the Americas this weekend for the 2015 Pirelli World Challenge races. Below are some of the photos I took in the paddock. Enjoy

  4. The repeated delays & vague second/third-hand stories from CodeMasters regarding a console patch to fix Grid AutoSport's widespread corrupt save defect have gone on for far too long to retain any credibility for me. I'm now finding it nearly impossible to simply take CodeMasters' word for it without any proof to back up their claims that such a patch is even in development. I've counted at least 4 occurrences across 4 different weeks in which someone from CodeMasters has claimed (either on this forum or on the CodeMasters Twitter feed) that a console patch to fix corrupt saves was "in submission" with console makers and/or should be available "hopefully next week" - yet it's now been 2 months since Grid AutoSport was released & this elusive patch has still not materialized. ...CodeMasters has proven that they could release the entire Grid AutoSport game across all platforms. ...CodeMasters has proven that they could release multiple DLC add-ons for Grid AutoSport across all platforms. ...CodeMasters has proven that they could launch sponsored in-game events for Grid AutoSport across all platforms (this new Intel Challenge on RaceNet). ...So it seems unbelievable to me that releasing a console patch for critical game-breaking issues in Grid AutoSport has somehow continued to meet insurmountable obstacles. The Xbox 360 & PlayStation 3 are mature platforms that CodeMasters has developed numerous games on. CodeMasters, Microsoft, & Sony have all been rolling out countless patches & updates on these platforms for years. This should have been an easy slam dunk by now. What is so different this time that has delayed a critical update for so long? @Satine @Loore @JustBigLee @Hatta ... Can anyone from CodeMasters provide customers with any hard evidence to support your unsubstantiated claims that CodeMasters does indeed have a console patch currently near completion to fix Grid AutoSport's widespread corrupt save defect? Can you provide customers with any direct & verifiable information about the current progress & expected deployment date of this reported patch?
  5. Every time I start Grid AutoSport on my Xbox 360, the game's audio sounds like it initially defaults to some settings other than the audio settings I setup & saved in the options. After I go to the "Options & Extras" menu, then select "Options," then select "Audio," the audio kicks in at the settings I had previously saved & I can instantly hear the difference. The game appears to save my audio settings, but the audio engine itself doesn't seem to actually implement my saved audio settings until I "remind" it by opening the audio settings menu. It's been this way for me since launch (both pre-patch & post-patch). It's not a huge game-breaking bug, but it's something that seemed worth reporting.
  6. Greetings all. So far, I'm loving Grid AutoSport on the Xbox 360. I've noticed often that the "Lead for a lap during a Race event," & "Set the fastest lap in a Race event," & "Finish ahead of your teammate in a race event" post-race XP bonuses are sometimes not awarded to me after single-player career events, even when I do indeed lead for laps & set the fastest lap & finish ahead of my teammate. Are there some other hidden criteria for these awards (such as: having to do them without using any flashbacks, or without having any collisions, or without going outside the track lines, or only when I'm on the top of the series team standings, etc.)? Or is there some other reason I'm missing out on these bonuses? Thanks.

    I don't usually go for "rogue-like" games, but something about Dead Cells got my attention. So far, it seems fun & challenging to me, not unfairly punishing just for the sake of being 'difficult.' The controls are simple & responsive, and the game runs smoothly on my PC. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys 'Metroidvania' games.

    The Game Thread!

    I can't explain why (I don't understand it myself), but I am somehow finding Need For Speed: Payback to be addictively fun. I don't even particularly like the casual open-world driving/street-racing genre, but something about Need For Speed: Payback pulled me in, more than the Forza Horizon games or Burnout Paradise or The Crew games. I've never been a fan of the Need For Speed series, so I wouldn't know (or much care) if Need For Speed: Payback is "true to its roots" or not, but as a stand-alone single-player game regardless of its predecessors, I've just been having a really good time playing it. :)

    I played through Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, & Arkham Knight (twice), and enjoyed them all. Arkham Knight was my favorite.

    I very much enjoyed my play-through of Bethesda's & id's first Rage game on my Xbox 360. If I recall correctly though, the game wasn't much of a commercial success, so I'm pleasantly surprised to see a sequel coming. I hope it's at least as awesome as Doom's 2016 comeback.
