     Look how twitchy it is to drive with a console controller.   People who don't drive with a wheel are crazy. 

    If you say so
    I say more than that.  I say only Chavs drive with a console controller.
    Sadly for you I'd drive circle around you with a controller. The fact that you dont have the finesse to use a controller properly does not  mean no one else has.
    HA!!! Finesse. I was gonna stay out of this and just let you have at it until you got all arrogant and frankly delusional.

    What finesse? you have steering assist. You should bloody run rings around people with a controller. you flick a switch left or right and get the exact perfect amount of steering angle for every single turn on the track no matter what the lock, if you're not beating a wheel with a controller you should probably give up.

    Finesse...HA....Finesse.....hehehehheehe, aaaaah, finesse. Give me a sec to get my breath back. God that was a good'un.

    Its funny Codemasters say they won use the FOM HUD because "its an interactive game, not built from the spectator POV. We require different elements".. 
    And that wasn't what @Hatta told us most recently about why they don't use the FOM HUD anyway...

    Hatta said "we've approached FOM about this. Its not possible right now", Steve Hood said what I originally commented, and a couple years ago some Codemasters official who went by the name T4NRG or something like that said the hardware was too old and couldnt process it.

    How many times do the fanboys need to be lied to before they pull their heads out of the sand?
    You mean T4RG4? Thats Steve Hood I believe.
  3. Let's get penalties for cutting Ascari right after 4 attempts then we can concentrate on the trivial stuff.

    Point I'm trying to make is there is surely a list of priorities in these bug ridden debacles, and the minor aesthetics isn't, and shouldnt be very high on that list.

    Of course if CM ever just managed to do it right we wouldnt be having this conversation would we?

    Don't bother asking, they wont be doing any of this, it'll just be another rehash. There isnt that much improvement from old gen to new gen either so they don't have much power for it anyways
    Well a ps4 has 32 times the RAM and ~4 times the processing power of a PS3 so I think the step up is bigger than you might expect, especially with things under the hood like physics, AI, lighting, 'dynamic-ness' of the world, etc...
    This is the company that can't manage a rear view mirror in GRID Autosport.....Yeah, no rear view mirror.....In a racing game.....Yep, you read that right. The company that releases patches TWO MONTHS after they release broken games. The company that is trying to sell us a game for £40 that has half the content of last years game........Which was £40.

    All the processing power in the world can't make the staff competent. 

    I now have a very cautious approach to CM now. I'm not gonna say the game IS gonna suck.....I'm just saying it's probably gonna suck....

    CodeMasters have been Minor League for half a decade now....You can't expect them to be Major League just 'cos the fields changed.
  5. Finally finished career.

    The worst single player in a racing game ever. No structure, no real reward, repetitive races, etc...

    The AI are abysmal. They don't even take the apex, they kind of brake and then edge over to an inside line and get crappy exits, terrible racers. Thats probably why I found myself restarting races over and over because I was being taken out by these psychos race after race.  And who programmed them to bang and barge down straights? What is the end goal here? 

    I feel a sense of achievement but not that I completed the game, It's because I know I never have to grind and fight through simply the most gruelling, ill thought out career mode I have ever played.

    What a Slog.....But I did it.

    That is all.
  6. I get kicked for being Brazilian :)
    I think they should take the national flags off display. There is no reason for them and it only leads to judging drivers before a race has even started.  I race with a group that kicks certain nationalities and as much as I think its harsh, I can't argue with some of the reasoning. 

    Take the flags out and we can judge people on how they race, not what part of the world they live.

    The only national flag that should be used in the game is the French one, and it should be an impact rating icon.....
    So it should go:
    French Flag.


    ^^^^tongue in cheek, hope I dont get in trouble.
  7. Good to hear you got a full refund too, it's not quite unprecedented though, I received a full refund on the 11th of July.

    I also had to go through a trouble-shooting session with one of their tech wizards before getting the refund.

    Yes, I really think the advisors should be briefed on the known fault in the game so that the troubleshooting session can be bypassed, but either way I was surprised with the refund.

    Good on you as well, I commend anyone that refuses to be walked all over.

  8. We have offcom offtel etc.

    Surely there must be a governing body we can complain too.

    People power let's put a stop to these cowboys once and for all.

    See my earlier post. I got a refund from MS. I've seen at least one person on this forum getting a refund from Sony and Im sure Steam would cave if you kicked up a fuss in numbers.

    Take the money away from 'em.......Thats the only solution and the problem with Codies over the last 4/5 years will not be fixed until this solution is taken up by the consumer.

  9. In an unprecedented show of customer service by Microsoft, I today received my £39.99 refund for G:AS

    This is special in the fact that Microsoft are known to be very hard headed when it comes to refunds. I was even told by the customer services advisor that all purchases are considered final and no refunds are given, although fair play to them I managed to change their minds.

    All I had to do was a few things on the Xbox such as clearing cache etc... to confirm it wasnt a technical issue with the system (We already know that, I didn't say they made it easy, haha) and then take a screenshot of the corrupt save message, gave him a link to the screenshot, and lo and behold, £39.99 will be back in my account after 72 hours.

    I did it all through the chat support on the xbox website, so go for it if you wish.....Or wait for the patch, it's your decision, I'm just informing people of a very rare event in history, an MS refund.

    I didn't get the £2 odd I spent on the booster pack, but you can keep that codies, It'll be the last £2 you ever get from me.

    N.B. I was also told by the MS agent not to buy games from this developer in the future.........I don't even know what to say to that. They won't take the patches and they're telling people not to buy the games.....Sums up the respect they have for this lot over at MS, says a lot indeed.

    What's the point in saying that on their forum? You think they really car about losing a customer? You've already bought their games.

    If customers were not going to be coming back to you in the future, wouldn't you want to know why? Or would you prefer to just watch your sales drop without having any advanced warning & no idea why customers left or what they chose instead?

    This guy just did CodeMasters a huge favor by pinpointing the exact things CodeMasters got wrong: "the bugs, the lies, the endless delays." Now CodeMasters doesn't have waste time or money guessing at what to do better in the future.

    If Codemasters really needed data on why people aren't buying their games anymore then they either need a new brain in the marketing department or they're in complete denial at the state their company is in.
