    Just finished One Punch Man and thoroughly enjoyed it. One of the few times I wish the series/season was 24 episodes.

    No idea what to watch after that... 
    I'm about to watch The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan. I have no idea what to expect.

    Also enjoying One Punch Man so far, though I'm not all the way through yet. Current status: he's on his way to punch someone once.
  2. Sounds fun; perhaps I'll check that out sometime. I'm currently on Ore Monogatari which is amazing. Typical romance for the most part - shy girl, dense guy, neither can read the other properly and it all gets very awkward. Except in this one there's a third character whose sole purpose is to point out all this stuff to the main characters, so he just sorts out all the difficult situations in a heartbeat and they can just get on with things. It's fantastic.

    I've tried watching Steins;Gate like three times and each time I just cannot get into it :( I think I'm going to give Future Diary a try.
    How far did you get in? I also struggled a bit for about the first 10 episodes or so. It's quite slow until a certain moment, at which point it completely shifts pace and tone into something much more engaging.

    And is it just me, or has the School Council VP's voice changed?
    Oh hey, missed *this* comment! I don't think her voice has changed, but I think she's shouting a little bit less this season which might explain the difference ^^

    I'm two episodes from finishing Bakuman...and I don't want it to end! Great series so far. No idea what can follow after this series, but I'm open to suggestions.
    Have you watched Steins;Gate? I just finished it the other day. O.O

    I really need to watch Durarara x2 at some point. I saw the original series when it aired and it was very good, but for some reason I haven't watched the second. First of all I'm currently finishing off Gate and Stein's;Gate. My friends'll get mad at me if I don't finish Stein's;Gate in particular because they've both played the Visual Novel and can't discuss spoilers while I'm around ^^
    Durarara is on my watchlist. One of the shows I'm most looking forward to... and how far are you on Steins;Gate? What did you think of it?
    I'd actually forgotten that it was a short series, since when I 'marathoned' it I didn't exactly have much time so I ended up taking a lot longer than the 2-3 days I'd initially planned to finish the show in.
    I'm only on about episode 6 of Steins;Gate, so it hasn't really kicked off yet and I've yet to figure out why they have that stupid semicolon in the title XD But I'm enjoying it well enough.

    Have you seen Baccano? That was the thing the Durarara folks made before Durarara and is also a lot of fun.

    Does anyone have recommendations for Autumn? And what were people's selection for best anime of the Summer? Just wondering.
    I really have enjoyed Gakkou Gurashi! this summer, and I think everyone's excited for One Punch Man this fall.... 
    I'm really not sure if I want to watch that one! I like cute comedy things and hate horror. I've heard it's both and it makes me uneasy!

    So I've been watching stuff like... Working!!!, Himouto Umaru-Chan, GATE and so on. Oh, and Shokugeki no Soma continues to be brilliant as well ^_^

    In completely unrelated news, the Queen got killed on week 27 on my first attempt at Long Live The Queen.

    Now, on my second attempt, I'm at week 31 and the Queen is still alive.
    Pretty sure she's just a Princess... ;)

    You're doing all right. I didn't play it too much, I got her killed by a snake and killed by poison and then I kinda moved on to other things!

  9. Lol :P 

    Well, I'll be here waiting on wheel and coop info regardless of what we are discussing. 


    OK so, you will be astonished to discover that I can't give you a supported wheel list! Basically there are one or two devices that have little bugs that are being worked on, and until they're fixed there's a small chance those devices won't make it on the list. So rather than risk releasing one list then having to remove a device from it, we're just waiting until everything on there is definitely good to go. 

    Personally I think your devices will probably be fine. But that's not totally confirmed at this point, so I recommend waiting for the full list to be certain.
  10. Mmm that sweet nectar called honesty. I like it.

    Any idea when we'll know about wheel support on ps4? Fanatec specifically. 

    Also co-op. @Britpoint 

    We'll be here talking about pcars to the annoyance of one user til then.
    I don't think I can talk about multiplayer stuff yet, you'll have to bear with me on that side of things for now. I'll have a look into wheels when everyone's back in on Monday. Dave (one of our handling guys) has been busy setting up action maps on various controllers for a little while now, but I don't know what the full list is. Bear in mind as with all things there may be stuff that prevents me from just posting a 'supported peripherals list' but if that happens I'll try and let you know at least.

    If you must talk about something non-F1, talk about Stock Car Extreme for a bit. Might be a nice change of pace and I actually play that one ;)

    The physics in '15 are muchos better than in previous years. Way more feeling through the tyres, way better on both pad and wheel, much more subtle throttle response. 
    Good to hear that. Gameplay videos?, oh sorry I interrupted....
    Ah, I'd love to say 'soon,' but I'm actually gonna say don't expect one for a week or so. There are some things holding up the planned videos. Not entirely sure on the specifics, although it is our side, this isn't FOM approvals or anything.

    Sorry about that, I know you all want to see the game in motion. But I figure it's better than just leaving you completely in the dark. Still, at least you won't have too long to wait before playing it for yourselves this year... :)
  12. Steven Hood maintained that real car physics would only cater for a limited minority and would not sell very well. Project Cars seems to be doing rather well so what's up with that! At least Project Cars covers all bases what with it's wealth of handling options available.

    The physics in '15 are muchos better than in previous years. Way more feeling through the tyres, way better on both pad and wheel, much more subtle throttle response. OK, it's still not 'hardcore sim' but let me put it this way: the physics/handling we have this year are the biggest step away from 'arcade' we've taken since getting the license in 2010 in my opinion.

    I'm sure I remember Steve Hood saying lateish last year when asked that F1 2015 does have the ability to watch other cars on track while you're in the pits in practice and qualifying. If so that that is at least something good.
    Still a thing. :)
    Does this include both online and offline? Or just online?
    Both! As @giommino mentions, I don't think there's replays in the multiplayer races, but if you're in Practice/Qualifying you can sit in your garage and watch a live feed of the other players, or AI if you're in single player.
  14. @britpoint whilst we are on the subject of starts is there any set range of throttle application to get the perfect start or just nail it hard for the launch?
    Yes you have to be careful about how you apply your throttle. Not enough revs and you'll bog down, too many and you'll spin the rear tyres. So you'll need to find a sweet spot and then feed in more throttle as you get moving. The engine is more sensitive to overheating as well now which will compromise your performance if you sit on the limiter for too long.
