    The Game Thread!

    Gonna spam a couple of videos from my recent gaming exploits. iRacing - Final lap at Road Atlanta in Skip Barber the other week. I'm the red car at the back of the trio. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7EVnP0c5beI Rainbow Six Siege is the best FPS I have played for years. When/if Ubisoft fix the server issues, which it seems like they're doing, I won't have any complaints about it. Plus with all the free DLC coming out with it over the year it's going to have legs. You need to be playing with a group to fully enjoy it though. Anyway a couple of videos.

    I don't think any of them will be under £500. HTC Vive comes with it's own special controller, so that will up the price as well. Will be waiting a few years until VR is affordable, hopefully the tech is awesome by then though.

    Going to wait until after Christmas for it, unless they drop the price massively before then. Trying to restrict my spending with my new job starting next month.

    The pricing model is what puts me off iRacing, but its the best online racing game you'll ever play. You just need to put lots of practice in to get the most of it. You get moments like this from it though (I'm the 7) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_NSfPpVQcEU

    Formula 1 TV Coverage Thread

    I don't watch the pre-show for races much anymore, most of the good segments can be found online later anyway. BBC's pre-race show for Brazil was awful. They spent most of it talking about whether Hamilton could win in the country of his hero. I know other countries are just as bad when it comes to favouritism to home drivers, but its getting farcical and part of the reason I'm losing interest to watch. So yeah, I agree with what's being said above and the article.

    Iracing is adding the 2015 McLaren MP4-30 to the game in December. It sounds like its going to be really well made. "Just to give you an idea of the new technology we have developed for this car (by the way we received updated CAD for the MP4-30 as recently as three weeks ago), we are integrating all the technology you would expect in a currently competing F1 car. This work has required us to redesign our engine model to support the F1 Energy Recovery System (ERS) which allows us to harvest thermal energy from the turbo and braking system. We are then propelling the car with a Motor Generator Unit (MGU) that provides a bank of extra electrical power that you will be able to use for overtaking. Because you will not be able to harvest enough energy to fully recharge the system, you will need to manage this extra power over the course of a race. You will also need to manage your fuel to ensure that you have enough to run the full race distance.We will also be implementing a Drag Reduction System (DRS) which I am sure is familiar to many of you. Basically there will one or two zones around each track where, if you are within a second of a car in front of you, you are allowed to open a flap on your rear wing to reduce drag. During qualifying and practice you will be able to open the flap in the marked DRS zones regardless of your proximity to another car. When the new car is released we will have all of the primary tracks used with the F1 cars configured with DRS zones and will roll-out additional tracks as time allows. Ultimately it is our goal to also have multiple tire compounds available for the McLaren MP4-30 in a session and require the use of both. Unfortunately, this feature will not be in the December release but it is our goal to have it ready for the start of the 2016 iRacing World Championship Grand Prix Series." Definitely going to give it a try, even if its just in practice.

    After seeing his quotes, I don't blame them. Lorenzo: "We are Spanish and this title had to stay in Spain. The Italians would have done the same with Valentino" But the majority of the hate should go to Marquez.

    Been playing a lot of Dirt Rally recently. Had trouble with the handbrake, so I bound it on the clutch pedal and the problems are gone. Such a great game, shows what Codemasters are capable of.

    Any other race of the season and Marquez would have attempted to overtake Lorenzo.

    Its a great game mode. I wish the maps were darker and more open. The point to point makes it too easy. Hopefully they'll add some more maps in the next update.

    I done a race on that Race Team Simulator demo last night. I picked "Red team", started 2nd and 3rd at notSilverstone. One car took the lead, the other dropped back to 6th at the start. Adjusted the strategies, leader took options and pushed as the majority of the field took primes. Managed to get a lead of 15 seconds at the final round of stops with 16 laps left, but with "Silver team" on options they caught up at about 1 second a lap. Managing fuel load and getting the driver to push at the right moment meant I won by 2 seconds in the end. I got the other driver back to 3rd, and one of the "Purple team" drivers stayed out at the start for too long on the primes and dropped from 4th to 13th. The race engine is pretty good, in-race management is all there, not sure the other drivers/teams use engine modes and other options like that though. Interesting to see where it goes from there. It needs to have all the features of the old GPM games to be a replacement, but its a good start so far. If they add lots of modding/customising options then it'll be a good game.

    Demo for Race Team Simulator is out. Looks like a good replacement for GPM. http://www.indiedb.com/games/raceteamsimulator/downloads/race-team-simulator-demo-oct-15

    Rossi's more amazing than I realised if he's able to kick the brake lever on a bike at 50mph while turning.
