    The Game Thread!

    Finished the 2nd race on F1 2015, and I'm still impressed by the game. Finished 2nd, I was leading for most of the race but for the final stint Hamilton put on options and managed to fly off into the distance. I am struggling with putting the power on, keep losing the rear and struggling to accelerate out of corners.

    National Report is a satire news site, like The Onion.

    Did you really just fall for a satire site?

    I have iRacing if I want to race online, all the other racing games I have are mainly for offline.

    The Game Thread!

    Completed my first race on F1 2015. Have to say I'm impressed. Picked Kimi at Ferrari, but I need to up the AI level as I won by 20 seconds, and I was on pole by 2.5 seconds. The feedback from the race engineer is great, the ability to ask for information is awesome but the HUD for it is a little clunky. AI is decent, need to race them more. Handling is fine, fun to drive which is all that matters. Wish you could drive to the pitbox though.

    @Lukedfrt  I didn't know you were responsible for putting the name on the badge of the new Birmingham kits. http://metro.co.uk/2015/10/12/fan-complains-as-birmingham-city-manage-to-spell-their-own-name-wrong-on-a-kit-5435321/

    Dumbed down is always used in a negative sense though.

    Neutral game... Assetto Corsa. I'll beat you both ;)... if I dare to play it again after it fried my last GPU.

    Does it really matter if its dumbed down if its fun? Not aimed at you, but its another thing about gamers that I don't understand. Games are supposed to fun, who cares if they're "dumbed" down or whatever term people want to use. Just because a game is full of depth doesn't mean its fun. Example of this is Battlefield 4, that game has loads of depth and is utter tripe because of it. Sometimes simple is better, simple in a Star Wars universe is better still. I just want to shoot rebel scum with my blaster.

    Having played it too, I found it really fun. Looks, sounds and feels like a Star Wars game should. Hoth isn't the best map, and with a little balancing the Walker Assault mode will be fun. Spawning needs fixing, but they've already said they're working on that. Hard to tell how deep the game is given its a very limited beta. I'll be picking it up and I'm certain I'll get my moneys worth from it, I can see myself and my friends on it for a long time. Hard more fun with this beta than I have with the whole of Battlefield 4.

    FIFA/PES thread

    I started two games for England. A group stage one that we drew 0-0 with Switzerland, then a knock-out stage game against Italy. Had a goal and assist within the first 20 minutes before getting my ankle broken.

    Finished my first season. Yeovil finished 3rd, I got League 2 player of the season and called up for the Euro 2016 England squad... Makes sense.

    That's how I take that section on iRacing.

    Battlefront is pretty fun. Not much depth in the beta, but gameplay seems good. Had a nice killstreak while being Luke Skywalker, but flying seems all kinds of weird.

    FIFA/PES thread

    So far for Yeovil, played 21 games, scored 6 and assisted 7 from CM. Sitting 3rd in L2. I did just turn it up a level to World Class, much more interesting to play. I expect my form will crash though.

    In my BAP I've gone on loan to Yeovil. Thought I'd help your team out @Hughesy :smiley:

    I saw FIFA on sale for £35 at Tesco today if anyone was thinking of getting it. Probably going to grab it tomorrow, get some pro clubs going @Lukedfrt

    Just installed the Corsair H60 cooler. Checked the temps and I was getting higher than I did with the stock cooler. Swapped around the wires and now im getting 30c. Panic over.

    I'd probably get FIFA because I want to do Pro Clubs again. I think Luek was involved last time I played.

    The PC Thread

    Just tested it with my old GPU in place, everything works. Going to order a new CPU cooler and look at moving where my PC is so it had a better airflow. Probably won't make a difference but its better to be safe than on fire.

    Contacted MSI, going to send it to them for RMA. Thanks for the help @Hughesy

    I bought the card from a seller on Amazon, so I guess I'll have to go back via them for the replacement?

    Yeah, was playing Assetto Corsa then sparks. I hope it hasn't shorted the MOBO or anything else. Going to look into replacing it tomorrow and will use my old GPU to test if my PC isnt dead. I thought it was catching fire, managed to get my wheel out of the way quickly lol!

    So I may have shit myself because of this http://imgur.com/5wCxFV9 Going to guess the mass sparkes means it doesn't work now, should still be under warranty hopefully they'll replace it. No idea what caused it though. Fuck :(
