  1. whats happening with these updates? one in January and another in march? that's 2 months between a weekly update lol
  2. whilst I have absolutely no problem with sports stars earing loads of money I do have a problem with these things, Lewis lives in Monaco as a tax exile and pays zero tax to the uk treasury. now how can he be the uk's highest paid sportstar if he don't even live in this country. sure he is all nostalgic when winning a race and doing it for the uk but when it comes to paying your fair share (like everyone else) these sport stars run a mile and think they deserve to paid millions without paying tax. it really sickens me as I have dedicated my whole adult life to this country by joining the army when I was 16. im not just singling out Hamilton as most are at the same thing.

    FIA cover up

    there is something not quite right about the bianchi accident, normally when there is a serious crash we see it from all angles, close up's, slow mo's and from that we learn what went wrong and what can be done in future to stop a repeat. FOMtv refusing to release the footage which was recorded on at least 4 hd cams, 1 onboard cam and 2 from above on lightposts. They say its out of respect to Bianchi but I just don't buy it. Senna's, ratzenbergers, massa's and kubica's crashes were all replayed over and over with close ups and slow mo's etc yet now the FIA have seem to have found some long lost respect for there drivers. in my opinion they are trying to cover themselves by implying Jules was going too fast and not adhereing to yellow flags. what do you guys think?

    new engine for next gen game

    well well well looks like we are being listened to guys! next gen exclusive, early season release (2015)and a brand new enging built specifically to run formula 1 on next gen :D  oh and its not called F1 2015,,, i wonder why? perhaps because it will have more than 1 class of racing? i honestly have not been this excited about an f1 game since 2009 waiting on 2010 to arrive.

    Congratulations Codemasters

    i am amazed, speechless even! At last we feel like we have been listened too! Firstly, the news that 2014 is not on next gen is a bit dissappointing but we forgive you for listening to us about bringing 2015 out exclusively to next gen at an early season release, this was the only way to ensure that the game is released early season and i give my full praise to the powers who be and look forward with great anticipation to playing F1 2015 on next gen at the same time the seasons going on, it has been a dream for many of us for the last 3 years and am obviously very delighted by what is the best choice codies could have made. Well done to the whole team!
  6. whats your favourite game of all time? and some reasons why. I have a top 3 1, GTA san andreas (all gta games are good), the graphics at the time on the ps2 and the size of the whole map was amazing, the amount of content, the crazy radio staions and just the bad ass shit you do every minute while playing it meant I played it for well over 1000hours 2, Battlefield Bad Company 2 (Vietnam also), best destruction, stopped me playing cod!, choppers, tanks, 50 cal snipers whats not to like and the maps were amazing, the campaign was good and there were no zombies in sight 3, its a flip up between Gran Turismo (ps) and Project Gotham Racing (xbox),,,,,both great games, probably give it to project gotham just because I could race around my home town and along the very street I stayed in at the time plus the nurburgring in that white Porsche was stunning, I had a top time in the world on time trial after doing over 200 hours just on the ring.
  7. it amazes me how little communication there is between the developers at codemasters and the large community of followers who have bought there games through thick and thin. I always have little ideas that pop into my head about how this could change so im going to start this thread and drop little ideas in from time to time and everyone else is encouraged to follow suit. let me start with this. Music for F1, why dont the devs or a moderator start a thread asking what types of music people would like to hear in the game. personally I turn off the music as that orchestra music in the menu's is mind numbing and when playing on multiplayer the music is too quiet in the garage to hear it. I want it to be like the red bull pit in real life and be blasting out at full volume at all times (obviously I don't want to hear it when I drive past the pit but these new cars might be that quiet that we could) in the menu section i'd like a playlist of various songs not just the same orchestra loop over and over again. I liked the 2010 intro song the best, ian brown F.E.A.R (forget everything and remember). its a pity that you cant use "the chain" section used by the BBC as the opening song especially in the uk just for immersion, its such a well known and catchy rift. Opening graphics for the game (intro), im amazed that with the sheer amount of quality footage available to recreate a montage out of real footage from real life f1 races that this is not done and we are treated to animations that don't really look like anything from real life. i'd like to see some clips of epic races in the past and present, perhaps focus on the champions and legends of the sport, I think a tribute to Michael Scumacher would be fitting this year more than any other as its such a shame what has happened, Michael Schumacher is thee greatest driver in F1 history and he should be highlighted in every intro section to any F1 game, as should other legends in my opinion, Prost, senna, fangio, lauda, Clarke, stewart and many others to name should have there place in present F1 games even if its a quick clip in the intro. as an example the BBC intro video on there coverage takes a look way back to when they started races with union flags lol and all the way through to our current crop of champions. But im sure licensing plays a great role in all of these ideas and some would be hard get. Multimedia, as you progress thorugh your career you should open up videos from days gone past. one thing I never get sick of seeing is Alonso holding off Schumacher for the win in imola in 2005 and the very next year Scumacher done exact the same thing back to Alonso, this is racing we rarely see nowadays, the art of defensive driving has largely been eroded from the sport largely due to drs and the tracks they race on now. Jenson Buttons win in Canada 2011 would make a good video. I cant stress this point enough, whilst Anthony Davidson has driven f1 cars in the past and works on simulators for Mercedes I think that the game would benefit from one of the current drivers testing the game and there are a few who publicly state they play your games, sutils career could do with a boost pick him :) lol
  8. what should be in, what do you want, 2014 speculation, gossip 2014, the list is endless. cant they all be put into 1 section its so annoying?

    moto gp 2014 by milestone

    what do you guys think of the new moto gp game?? I think codemasters could learn a lot from this game, the immersion into the sport is superb, the official FIM graphics before the races, all official teams and riders from 3 classes with the correct pace from each team/rider and all within a july release date. the way you have to play the game to open up different teams and riders is the way it should be and not have everything available out the box, it makes you play the game to gain rewards and that's something that's always been lacking in codemasters f1 games. over 100 riders all with different sponsorship 50+ teams all with different liveries and they can do that for a july realease, for such a small company compared to codemasters this is a fine example of what can be done. online seems pretty good too if a little bit quiet, not encountered any lag whilst racing and there doesn't seem to be many cheats, sure some guys are 2 secs a lap faster than me but with this being my first attempt at a motogp game I think I can get to that pace easily as I still don't know 80% of the circuits. The way the setups are worked on is great with the support of your engineer explaining what to change when you feel certain things on the bike like corner entry understeer for example he explains what needs changed so you know for in the future, simple yet effective. the different classes of physics is good for beginners although im not sure how that could be implemented onto f1 games. the multimedia section is an added bonus with great videos to watch between races in the career. the champions section of riders is great too, doohan, criville, biaggi, rossi all on there old bikes, sound great too. I like when you race on multiplayer you can choose to ride as an official rider of any team or a custom rider based on your character in the career game with your own number on the bike. all in all I think its a great representation of the sport, good graphics, tracks look great, bikes sound good but could be better imho and to top it all off the game was tested by 2 times moto gp world champion Jorge Lorenzo who actually plays the game in real life, codemasters should really try very hard to get someone with similar stature within F1 to do the same, lewis Hamilton would be an obvious choice as he plays the f1 games and is a former world champion in F1.

    you say about flame comments, what about your comments about Lorenzo? don't you think that flames the emotion in Lorenzo fans? man just move on and don't respond to any of my posts and I shall do the same with you? I mean you already said earlier you were done answering me but you just keep niggling and niggling at me to get a reaction.

    MotoGP

    the onboard from rossi's bike shows it pretty clearly. The way he turned and looked after he kicked him, the sunglasses in the interview to stop people seeing his eyes when he was downright lying, the statement this week about how he regrets it. but I'm sure you will have an answer for all of that. Even the telemetry data you will somehow turn it around on marquez. I will never be of the opinion that it was marquez's fault.

    don't know how long u guys have been watching motogp but for me Rossi has got form for being quite a dirty rider with a win at all cost attitude, maybe its just karma and he is getting what he gave out all those years ago but doesn't like it at all. Must be annoying for Dani Pedrosa tho, he wins race and everyone talks about Marquez, Rossi and Lorenzo lol 100% agree with goldencolt that Iannone is rider of the year

    I really hope the championship is not decided by one of them crashing out and getting zero, lets hope its won by good, clean but hard racing!

    MotoGP

    because he is the "magnificent marc marquez" lol he really is something special. Malaysia and Valencia left, my bet is on Lorenzo. Predict Lorenzo to get 2nd place in Malaysia and win in Valencia, Rossi 4th in both races, marquez win in Malaysia and both Hondas on podium in Valencia. If that does happen  Lorenzo wins the championship by a few points. Remember when Rossi just had to finish in Valencia in 06 (I think) but he crashed and hayden won the championship, Rossi does not normally do well there. Whatever happens I think we can all agree its been an epic season and may the best man win!

    it really is the best most pure form of motorsport, F1 can only dream of having flag to flag action like this. it really was epic and will be remembered for a very very long time. Ride of the day was Andrea (the maniac) Lannone just for that double pass on marquez and rossi coming out of Honda corner, fantastic absolutely fecking fantastic.
