    I Found My Dream Car

    Yes it's true, it's a Porsche CTR in Project Gotham Racing 3, I just love this car and guess what the game is a solid as a rock, I am just loving it! Anyone else like this car?

    AI speed in racenet challenges

    Go to steam community and read the reviews on this game they mostly go like this: The driving is awful. The cars wallow all over the place, the grip modeling is bizzarre, you have to brake at sim-like distances, though the AI does not--and meanwhile the AI's only goal is, seemingly, to wreck you at every opportunity, or at least shove you off the track or into the nearest barrier. They will honest-to-god plow into you at the startline if they can. It's like multiplayer with twelve-year-olds. The cockpit cam is pathetic. It's worse than the Grid 2 mod. No team of your own, no personal livery, no stable full of cars--just mercenarily jumping from sponsor to sponsor and racing whatever they have for you. The only reason I'd give this anything but a zero on a 0-10 scale is that it looks very nice, all things considered, and has a pretty interesting car list--that I will never fully get to experience because of the godawful nature of the basic game. It's a two at best. If you want an arcade racer, pick up the first game, or grab any of the NFS games. If you want a sim, Assetto Corsa is the answer. Reading through some of these other reviews, I'm boggled by the low standards and mean value to which people hold their entertainment dollar these days.

    Cannot turn off the AI? They are either lying or really stupid, you decide.

    THEN: Nicholls then talks about the main reason why they went for PS3 and Xbox 360 instead of PS4 and Xbox One. We’re working on our next-generation technology already and our future games will take advantage of it, but right now we feel there’s a great opportunity to use the existing EGO engine to make a GRID game that responds to our community and makes and awesome motorsports themed racing game. - GRID: Autosport’s lead designer James Nicholls NOW: There old technology, we don't have time to waste on them anymore. - Loore (Paraphrased)

    I read somewhere that Norfrost is going into partnership  with Codemasters. ;)

    The future of grid

    I wonder if they will make the AI playable in future iterations?

    If you buy a toaster and all it does is burn the toast then  it's not doing what the makers claimed and you have the right to a full refund. You buy Grid Autosport and it says that you can play online, then you find you can't, it's the same thing, it's not doing what it was claimed to do. It's quite simple when you think about it.

    Team objectives and AI rubber band.

    They can make the AI as aggressive as they want, but for some obscure reason they make them race like rabid dogs on coke.

    What system are you using? PC, PS3, Xbox 360 etc.

    Team objectives and AI rubber band.

    The AI is ridiculous, they have code in there that lets the AI get a boost in speed under certain conditions, Codemasters team must think this is funny but the vast majority of complaints about playability is about the AI. They obviously don't want to sell more games otherwise they would fix it.

    What's wrong with Grid Autosport AI?

    Codemasters developers are a cruel lot and don't want fair racing, or better sales for that matter, if they did they would do something about it, the company must be making too much money. They delude themselves into thinking that actual races are demolition derby's.

    Has console support ended already?

    I could make a website and start saying sales numbers, can't say I've ever seen one be correct on VGChartz, don't believe everything you read :) Grid Autosport on the Xbox 360 did quite well in sales, so much for the PC brigade: GRID Autosport .................... The Xbox 360 version accounted for 55 per cent of sales, the PlayStation 3 for 41 per cent, and the PC for 4 per cent. - GameCentral  Monday 30 Jun 2014 10:35 am

    Codemasters blame xbox live

    I answer questions that I have an answer too, I like to think I've been pretty open to be honest, at least more than we have in the past and certainly more than other devs. If this is in regard to the freezing issue, we're working on a patch and it's currently going through internal QA, once that's complete and we're satisfied with it working we'll pass it over to Microsoft. Hopefully it will work, the Xbox 360 still has a huge following with new games coming out all the time, to abandon it would not be a wise decision.

    Codemasters blame xbox live

    Did they not test these things "before" they released the game? On the PC there are a bazillion different hardware combinations, on the 360 basically one! They know the limitations of the 360, they did Grid 1 & 2, Dirt and F1 games, they are just pointing the finger elsewhere IMO.

    Grid/Codemaster's killer

    Great post,  just doesnt need the last part.  Im more than happy thanks.   Still not a believer though.   @TUSMBOX,  Show me the replay.  Can you prove he did use a keyboard? NO.   It doesnt mean it didnt work for me,It had to work for me, there was no other option.  It was keyboard or dont play.  Years went buy, game pads were bought and binned, Then I stopped gaming for a few years, untill PGR4 on the xbox, and I had to get used to thumbsticks, which I didnt like at first.  But realised the're a better way of giving me more control.   This is going nowhere,   You say he did use a keyboard and I cant prove he didnt.  I say he didnt use a keyboard, and you cant prove he did.   So Im going to just leave it there.   Believe what you want.    Try to beat that. It's done with a keyboard. Got beaten by it. http://youtu.be/Mj4Rwom1E_M That guy was excellent. I don't know how anyone can race using a keyboard, my fingers are big and just seem to get in the way of each other.
