    The Game Thread!

    Hooold your horses! Unless I'm missing something, when you're ceasing development it is not possible to apply upgrades inbetween seasons in F1 2016? How does that even make sense? That's the time most upgrades are applied to any car. And it also seems a bit weird to arrive with last year's car at Australia, only for it to become a rocket shop at Bahrain. I'm still on the fence about this year's game, but it's details like this that definitely put me off.

    So, instead of getting some sleep, I played some Mankind Divided. Worth it. But I do need roughly 5 litres of coffee to get through the day now.

    It's been one of my strongest tracks in every single game so far. Then again, I'm nowhere near the pace in China. Like it has been in every single game so far. So yeah, the game seems to be fine then, maybe I need to mess around with the setup. Oh, and one more thing, Codemasters. Why the flying F is there a 50% chance to get stuck behind an AI car if you go for the flying lap option? This has been bugging me since F1 2010.

    Huh, played for another one and a half hours. I played on 6 different circuits, had no trouble to perfect the track acclimatisation every time. Until I raced on Malaysia. Like, I have no idea what kind of speeds the game expects me to pass here O_o 10 attempts and I couldn't go purple at every single gate. Weird.

    I've seen the game on the highest settings on PC in the rain. The spray is still crap. But I guess that must be the YouTube compression ;)

    Oh, and before I forget about it. The driving in the rain is the best it has ever been. But the rain effects (spray) are crap.

    True, but this was after 4 laps in Russia. The safety car was out for 6 laps, and somehow the field still didn't bunch up entirely. Something similiar occured in Monaco after 15 laps. Late P2. Didn't try it in P3. Could be the reason though, I have to admit. Also, eff the castle chicane in Baku. Took me way too long not to crash there.

    Right, I was able to play F1 2016. Still not sure whether to purchase it for myself or not. The handling is excellent, but I knew that. Input with the PS4 controller seems iffy however. Not entirely sure why. Seems awfully difficult to take tight corners like in Monaco. AI has some problems. They're still very reluctant to get out of your way if you're on a fast lap, same for backmarkers. Sometimes they also try to get out of your way, but instead drive right in your way. Simply because they try to get away from the racing line, but not from your car. Which means, if you're approaching them off-racing line, you're going to have a bad time. M'kay? That effing bug where the AI sets completely  unrealistic lap times is *still* in the game. And I very much dislike this. Like, why? Safety car - oh, boy. I'm glad it's back. But, oh my god, can it lead to problems. The field never seems to properly bunch up. And it never seems to get triggered when really needed. Car parked in a dangerous location? So be it. Someone knocks their front wing off? Safety car deployed! Never saw the VSC. Little graphical glitches in Australia. Looks like artifacts. Again, why? The practice program is awesome. So is the sound of the cars. I do have to say one thing, though. I hardly ever hit the optimal qualifying time in practice, but I had no problem hitting it in qualifying itself. Bit weird. Just some impressions from playing it for 4 hours. And like I said, still unsure about it.

    Right, looks like I'm not purchasing F1 2016. For now, that is. Spotted a potential bug in a stream. The cars didn't bunch up entirely even after 5 laps behind the safety car, which not only is weird, but defeats one of the purposes to have the bloody thing in the game. And then there's still this dreaded bug where a limping car on the racing line is holding everyone else up. An issue that has been in the game since F1 2015. I did enjoy the handling from the beta, and the career mode looks alright, but if you can't fix a bleeping issue that has been in last year's game, then I can't be bothered to spent money on your product.

    15 hours so far. But I already started looking for a different game to occupy me. And ultimately, I shouldn't complain too much, as the game was a gift and I probably shouldn't be bothered about it too much not hitting my nerve.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLtmEjqzg7M Compared to the trailer it almost feels like a barren wasteland. Of course, making your game look far more vibrant and lively is par of the course in today's game development. It's still a disappointment, all in all. Yeah, that's what pretty much all of the encounters boil down to. Multi tool, new word, a different ship, or a vendor. Same with the buildings. It's amazing really, how it seems like the same architect was able to find work on every single planet in this vast universe. Even more so as it does seem like most systems are dominated by one alien species, yet the buildings all look the same. So not only are you as the player incapable of building something, but all the aliens out there suffer from the same fate. And it's true, they never promised base building, however, it would finally give the resources more purpose. As of now they're mostly fuel and money. At the moment it simply plays like an early access game. It has its moments, but I never feel compelled to return to it. Maybe the ability to interact with other players would have motivated me to do so, but as we learned, we are unable to do so.

    It's OK not go for lots of action, it's not what I expected. But there is simply nothing to do. You can't build anything - apart from a few little upgrades - the planets biggest differences usually are the colour palette, and the interaction with aliens fall flat on their face after a few hours, 'cos they always feel the same. And another thing: https://twitter.com/Britbongreturns/status/765190830894317568

    I feel the exact opposite. The first few hours were enjoyable, but now after only 12 hours, I can hardly be bothered to boot up the game. Every planet features the exact same things to discover. A few buildings, a few monoliths, a few weird animals. And some planets are just dead, and not worth to visit at all. You gather resources to traverse to a different system, only for you to gather some more resources so you can travel to the next system. Learning languages is tiresome and ultimately does not seem to pay off. Sure, it features a massive playground, but there is no depth to it whatsoever. It feels like a massive tech demo, but not a full fledged game. Not yet at least.

    Now that's a tasty treat. And I really love the old school packaging :D

    Just started a new season in F1 2010 after not playing it for 2 years. Holy understeer! And the Bahrain layout? I mean, does it get any more awkward? Watching it was one thing, but driving it is close to being painful.

    Decent? It blew my trousers off. No, I'm not joking. If you find them, please return them to me. And the games were one thing, but revealing Hideo Kojima to take together with Norman Reedus a massive shit on Konami? Now that's, that's how you do it.

    You know, I wonder, how did chromatic aberration find its way into video games? Or better yet, how did the bloke who came up with it justify it? Pillock: You know what, dear? Today at work, I've added a completely new effect to our shiny new game. Pillock's wife: Oh, that's lovely. What does it do? Pillock: Well, it makes the game look worse. Pillock's wife: But, why would you want your game to look worse..? Ah, I know. It saves resources, right? Pillock: No, love. It doesn't. Pillock's wife: So, this new effect makes the game look worse, and it doesn't improve performance of the game? Pillock: Correct, dear! This is quite possible the best idea I've had since motion blur and the lens flare effect in first-person gam- Pillock's wife: I want a divorce! That's how I'd like to imagine it at least.

    Bollocks. Looks like the new Doom is just a cross between CoD, Halo, and possibly a little bit of Doom. It's not fast-paced, feels gimmicky, and isn't all that fun. It's just a beta at the moment, yes, but yeah, it's pretty clear what this game wants to be. And if I want a proper modern arena shooter, I guess I'll have to wait a bit more. Brb, installing UT 99.

    Oh, you better believe I'm going to get DkS 3. I've been replaying the previous titles this past few weeks and can't wait to delve into another Souls game. Even more so since it looks like From Software combined the best of the first Dark Souls with the best of Bloodborne. One way or the other, my insomnia-infused nights will be filled with lots of deaths.

    This whole PS4.5/PS4K rumours are getting on my nerve. We don't even know for certain that they're building something. There is simply a rumour floating about, but what do you know? Every crappy YouTuber and gaming site sells this crap as a fact. And what else do you know? The majority of people eat this crap up and spread this junk even further. Rant over.

    Is your commentary in German or do you get the English commentators? German. High quality. Ernst Hausleitner and Alexander Wurz. Easily the best sport commentators they have. Are you austrian? Yep. Born and raised.

    Formula 1 TV Coverage Thread

    http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/2015/01/27/fans-worldwide-reveal-cost-watching-f1-2015/ Interesting read up. Never realised just how expensive watching F1 can be. And also, I can't believe how lucky I am living in Austria. Not only do I get to watch F1 for free, but also Formula E, WEC, and MotoGP (Moto 2-3 included). Not to mention the ticket prices are relatively low as well.
