    Hmmm... it might take a while, but I could probably make 22 posts including only the letter b.... B

    I hope they add in a feature to watch your co-driver burn alive.

    Nice watch. Isn't that a Seiko? Otherwise seems like you could've shortened the shutter speed a bit and played with burst mode. Would've helped a bit with the blur on the fast movers. But I'm no Steve either. Also, a polarized filter will help cut glare.

    I'm not entirely sold on D shaped wheels. Then again, I tend to drift and countersteer a lot.

    I still hate having to "research" a game in it's entirety before you buy it. Mostly due to poor refund systems and the lack of demos. For a racing game, okay, you can look up the tracks and cars which are advertised, but even still then you won't actually know what it feels like until you buy it, and then you could end with a game you don't like and no way to get your money back. Oddly enough I predicted 2 of those 3 things would be an issue. VR is still a pretty minor subset. But hey, everyone wanted to push for paid DLC. And I'm not surprised that it ended up being remade tracks from the first game that everyone already knows now. They're doing a good job with them, but it does still feel a little cheap. Which reminds me, there was zero indication or clarification of what the season pass or whatever would include at launch. Most games have at least something to say what it is you're paying for. I wonder how many people would've bought it if they knew the "new rallies" were the original ones. But... every Ferrari you buy will break quickly anyways... Sorry, but... no. Odyssey is terrible with historical accuracy. I'm not getting into it.

    I'm not comparing it to early access. Compare it to other large studios. Even EA and Ubisoft are faster and more accurate with their feedback. Going on the stock market doesn't limit developer feedback, or prevent them from accurately reporting on what they're actually doing. EA is on the stock market, so let's take Battlefield V as an example. It's kind of a **** show, but DICE is still relatively active in stating what they're working on, and what changes and bugfixes are coming, as well as mostly everything that's in those patches. DICE just released a new patch with features the community was asking for while being pretty clear the entire time about what the patch entails and how these things work. Take it back to Battlefield 4 and the devs were EXTREMELY active with the community in order to find and fix bugs, change and add features, make new maps, etc. It's pretty common for CM to just update games without patch notes, or with things missing. It's also now pretty common for them to just channel their internal Sean Murray and go silent for a month or two at a time while people are asking and wondering what the hell is going on.

    That's an annoying and apologetic outlook for making something seem better than it is. People complaining about the game lacking things it never advertised is one thing, but people being upset that they spent money on a game they don't enjoy is valid. I don't play the game much because the FFB before the update was an utter bore and uninspiring. A few others of "significant" import have also put the game on hold. I'm certainly glad and appreciative of CM for letting me take part in the early stages and provide all of us last minute digital keys, which we weren't expecting. CM is also very slow to respond to things, even if it is the higher ups immediately sending everyone on holiday the day of release and then taking the majority of the team to work on other products. We do have the forum, but the interaction between the devs and the community especially in this thread has practically vanished. I remember Paul, Christina, and Urgaffel in here constantly, just chatting and shooting ideas if not dropping hints. Now it's game release, flood the forums with feedback, and then eventually just a general "We're working on things" a month later. Half of that is probably due to the 2 week post launch vacation. Not that they don't deserve it. Even if they did respond quicker, again, I'll blame the higher ups, but the team never seems to have enough time to actually do what properly needs to be done anyways. The games haven't really been shipping in an amazing state. It's annoying how the trend is to now push out games as fast as possible and maybe fix them later. I certainly don't have any insider knowledge, but there's been a lot of big key members bailing out of Codies. Let's not forget Dirt 4 was supposed to get reasonable post-launch support, but there was almost none and the devs went pretty silent. Haven't seen the Mighty Craic since. And then there's being ****** about DLC not being in the PS4 at exactly the right time.

    I didn't like the first one, but Grid 2 and Autosport work pretty well with a wheel. Grid 2 being more arcadey. If you played Dirt 2 or 3... or really any of the other CM racing games it's a familiar feeling.

    I have all the Grids... they're all pretty colorful...

    Heh, that game just went free on the Humble store. Now the graphics are arcadey!? WHEN WILL THE POPCORN END!? The road made of mirror isn't great though. I'm assuming the cars are remade though. Unless they had higher res versions they just kept on file. Reworking a car is usually just about as difficult and time consuming as making a new one.

    Well, while you're here, you can give me an opinion for my pick for the next DLC car;

    Haha, he was talking to me about a guy known as "The Beard" so I mentioned that there's a guy here who's "advertising" is his big ugly mustache. Unsurprisingly similar really. But this isn't the place for such topics.

    Ugh. They're doing that reboot thing of just naming it the same as the first game, so it's not Doom, it's Doom 2016 and God Of War 2018. What? Last day it's only been... THREE AND A HALF YEARS!? The hell have I been doing with my life? Who... who are we gonna whisper secrets to now? Seems like a lot of important people are leaving Codies...

    I had a conversation with an Argentinian about roads and he was appalled by the roads we have here. Then it got into greedy corrupt politicians.

    I don't know about console, but I didn't really get any notification on PC. I just booted up the game and looked for it in the custom championship and there it was. Not even a splash screen of "Here's that DLC you own!"

    The quotes don't work in posted posts though. That's why I edited the post saying I didn't want make a new post. Back in the old forum you could keep quotes and posts from older pages. Now when you quote or make a post it takes you to the newest post. So if you're pages back like I am not being in EU so everything is talked about when I'm sleeping, I either have to make a post for each page, leading to double or triple posts, or only posting on the newest page. I don't know why they changed that feature. You can't edit your post to add in quotes from other posts so you have to post post if you want to quote a new post or just a post that you didn't quote. It's all very simple.

    You bet. Except I just put my wheel away for the third time this week. ...last 5 days, whatever. Suck it Steve! Edit to respond to Riggs since I don't want make a new post, but can't quote in a posted post; It would've been a big change before the game released, not after. We didn't even get the press build until just a few days before launch, so when they were showcasing NZ n such at that event it was news to us. But the early build we had and the press version had some rather noticeable changes

    I don't follow the Discord, but something along those lines. I think I mainly just can't say what exactly it's in reference to be compared with. Although it might not be a big deal now. I'll have to wait until Germany actually drops. I'm not 100% it's solely the fault of the camber, but I guess we'll see.

    Well hey, I did sign an NDA. And I like to hold it over the plebs on console or that missed the invitation. I'm not lying though, I've been expecting and waiting for Germany for... since it's been teased... ...yeah...
