    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...

    Well, based on my [REDACTED] in the [REDACTED] I was actually quite looking forward to it to compare with [REDACTED]. Some of the other testers have some theories about the physics oddities in Spain that could maybe be explained depending on what we see in Germany, as a [REDACTED]. Depending on how it goes it would be basically irrefutable proof that [REDACTED] in a way that I personally don't see for the better. At least on tarmac.

    For trying out the FFB I took an R2 Ford around Sweden and actually thought it was pretty decent. Guess just all around the RWD is off.

    Well... if my front wheels aren't in the apex/inside line then something's gone very wrong.

    I was using it on Australia, but there's no way I could have pulled off those slides. It just doesn't react to countersteer well for me. I don't think I've tried it on Poland though. But that bizarre sudden snap sideways is what I'm talking about, but it does it nearly every corner. If it behaved like it does in your vid I'd be happy with it. *cough cough*

    So it's meant to be driven in circles? I can drift cars fine, but that thing is a turd.

    I just can't get the damn thing to go straight on wheel or controller. Halfway through every corner it just decides to spin out with no warning. It's not that fast and doesn't have that much power so I don't know why it can't just go bloody straight.
  24. JZStudios

    DiRTy Gossip

    Open question, can anyone drive the 240z in game? It's like halfway through every corner it gets all inspired and thinks "I wanna be an Escort!" and Ken Blocks it into the nearest available rock. I can't decide if the front is made of balloons, and the back a tank, or vice versa. Maybe it's just got GTA4 style greasy tires?

    At least it looks like more of a game than what I've seen of Absolute Drifts primarily empty play spaces. Following unrelated news, Guacamelee is free on the Humble store right now. As an addendum, Steep is also free on uPlay, which I think is a great game to unwind with.
