  1. Playing GRID with a keyboard on two different PCs (same KB used on each) I use different Advanced Settings on each in order to get the handling I am accustomed to on each.  Can the new game automatically optimize the game on different PCs and arrive at solutions that fit not only various systems, but personal driving style as well?  Doesn't seem likely, but I'm willing to be persuaded if I'm wrong.

    Realizing that the very difficult keyboard handling in GRID could be tuned (default is not sacred, in fact sux), and arriving at my own
    solution was one of the personal achievements that helped make GRID my favorite racing game.  No Advanced Settings seems like a move toward NFS ProStreet rather than toward GRID.  And I know that's not your intent.  I've got my order in, but I'm beginning to question my sanity.

  2. I was sort of with you until that last part.  I agree about G2 tracks (I'm more interested in more tracks than in more cars), but putting out a track or car expansion pack for multiplay but not single play would be a big mistake - like putting out an expansion pack for a platform or two but not all platforms supported in the original release.  Which Codies did in GRID (08) and royally pissed off a lot of fans.  That's one of the old major issues that this team should take to heart.  Don't release any DLCs or expansion packs until they are ready for all platforms and both types of connections - in other words, if you're going to raise the tide make sure it floats ALL the boats.

    As for San Franciso and Washington:  very much like old home week.  Detroit:  as far as I can tell it's only for Derby; is that right?

  3. I was just looking again at the confirmed/likely track list on RallyDriven's thread and I've just got to say, looking at what we know we've got and disregarding what else we would like to see added, this is a great track list.  Sure, it would be easy to add 20 more, but the existing list of 21 looks really good to me.  I can drop a few tears for missing friends, but this is good stuff.

  4. Don't know if you are old or not, gor, but I am.  I'm still playing SP exclusively and enjoying it.  And paying full price + offshore delivery costs for my GRID A disc.  So pretending like SP doesn't really matter is pretty uninformed.  I reckon there are quite a few of us, still.

  5. I would rather pay to import a disc then not have one.  Got into Steam not long ago and have downloaded just enough to confirm that I really don't like it.  On my miserable service it means spending a day or two nursing the damned thing along (G2), vs an hour installing from a disc.  The freight for the disc is still a bargain to me.

  6. Like GRID.  On keyboard at Savage (2nd from Extreme, the hardest) and assists off, except Traction Control on, I can usually win except beating Ravenwest requires lots of restarts.  Leaves the challenge of upping difficulty to the last notch and/or turning off Traction Control, either of which make it very difficult to win.  With all assists off at Extreme I can still drive the car, but winning is pretty much impossible.  And that's the way it should be, I think.  Settings can be adjusted to where anyone can win, but difficulty options are sufficient to always have something more to achieve, at least at my level of driving.  Just make GRID the reference and you can't go too far wrong.
