  1. Yep. Like it means anything. They might get a slight boost in sales, but I feel like if it went to DR2 it'd be a bit disingenuous to win a category for "continued support" months after the final update. Just got Elite Dangerous for free from EGS. They released in 2014 and they're still updating the game.
  2. Isn't it explicitly not getting new content though? Toyota confirmed?
  3. Kind of like when you need to race home to use the bathroom and just don't quite make it.
  4. That list includes HR, QA, and localization departments which are typically outsourced. Even still, compared to the size of teams now it's not that big.
  5. Depends. You'd think Burnout would be pretty simple.
  6. Let's all pour one out for Pork. What do you mean sometimes?
  7. I'M 100% SOBER! I can NOT be the only that can't ever understand what he, @dgeesi0 as a native English speaker, is saying? He's literally told me before he speaks in gibberish to win internet debates! That's not how it works! You can't just start an argument, speak gibberish, and then claim you won because they have no idea what the hell you said! I've worked with African immigrants speaking Afrikaans and Mexicans speaking only Spanish and I have exactly 100% success in translating and understanding what they're saying through broken English and heavy accents. Somehow, Dgeesio eludes me.
  8. What the **** are we talking about? You make that argument and it's false every time. You speak English, and yet manage to find a way to type sentences specifically so they have zero ******* meaning, or possibly 3 or 4 contradicting meanings so I don't know what the hell you're trying to say. It's frustrating trying to talk to you and decipher your Navajo code. Seriously, when WW3 breaks out, join in on making the enigma machine, because Holy ****. As you responded before my edit, I'm going to reiterate and ask you to clarify this sentence, because I legitimately don't know wh
  9. This isn't English. I have no idea what you're trying to insinuate. Dirt 5 is now on a completely separate engine, meaning the physics can be, and probably are, completely independent. The physics engine and other aspects are also generally overhauled and changed over time. UE4 is not the same as when it launched. As to you not saying they don't update it; Which isn't true. They've reworked the physics engine, and it wouldn't be starting over from scratch. You make changes, add new features, more calculations. You don't just throw everything away and start over, and even if the
  10. Forza and Forza Horizon are in the same situation. They help each other out, but aren't directly tied. The physics in Horizon are not the same as Motorsport. Except actually, now that Dirt has an entirely separate engine from Dirt Rally and it's not like there's never been any physics changes since the launch of the Ego engine at the start of the 360 era, this is a bad argument. Updating, improving, and adding new features are key to making yearly or bi-yearly releases not stagnate, unless of course you're COD and people like playing the exact same thing for 20 years. Every major franchis
  11. DR isn't a yearly title though. It's bi-annual. If you don't ever change or update anything then people lose interest.
  12. Didn't know who Luther Vandross was, but I can see it. To be fair, it seems a bit **** with a controller. Then again, PCSX2 doesn't actually do analog buttons, and I don't have an analog button controller to try it with. Feels great with a wheel though.
  13. That seems way too intense for just a car dealership. It actually has a rising tension, it kind of sounds like some of the pre-race menu music in Enthusia. The song I posted would be in the menu equivalent to the replay theater, it's energetic, has sick bass, and some cool guitar riffs with interspersed piano, yet remains relatively relaxed. Like a cool jazz club or something.
  14. The dirt racing in GT4 is kind of terrible. It's much more akin to ice racing in that you never actually seem to have any amount of actual traction and the Grand Canyon course is very tight with very close barriers and slowdown dirt banks. It's way easier to get used to DR and DR2... or any other game with dirt racing I've tried. As an aside, the Enthusia Library music is way too good for something people won't ever hear. The whole soundtrack is actually pretty good.
  15. That's why I like Forza more, at least more than GT4. You're placed into performance classes, not just completely open so the racing is tighter, and even the first game had damage that you had to pay to fix at the end of the race. I bought a car to do a "spyder" race, but was outclassed by everything else. So then do I buy another faster car and hope it's good enough, or do I spend way too much money upgrading the **** one? It's much easier to just hit a performance class. I also wish racing games would stop the irritating trend of 2-3 lap races and you always start in last place. That by
  16. But how do you beat a time when the car your following doesn't even come close and forces you to back off? Most of them are just "Do this one corner with no sense of how the car feels, and when you inevitably fail we'll play a dumb sex song." I looked up a video and the guy did it in 8:40 something, but I don't know how because I had to keep backing off and the pace car wasn't anywhere close to that time and I got 9:11. I tried one in a TVR going around a corner, but I'm pretty sure the over/understeer control was on and it massively gimps your speed. The only way to get around the corner
  17. Dunno. The GOG version has no DRM at all. In other unrelated news I'm trying GT4 with my wheel, and I hate the license tests. I nabbed a save file that has them all done, but I thought I'd try some of the higher level ones anyways just to prove I can do it. IA-15 is total garbage. It's a lap around the Nurburgring in a 190E aiming for under 9 minute lap time, which would be pretty easy, except there's a pace car that automatically fails you if you pass it, and if you don't you fail for being too slow. I don't understand.
  18. So I dragged my wheel out to try it with Toca 3 in the interest of trying the whole package. It's worse with a wheel. I could see people having nostalgia for it if they didn't have any better realistic racing games like GT or Forza, but it's not great with a controller and worse with a wheel. There's a "pro-sim" handling model that's anything but and in either flavor regardless of input device the physics are just weird and make no sense. Really disappointing, it has a nice variety of content like if F1, Dirt, and modern Grid were all combined, but it's all pretty poor to drive.
  19. The festival atmosphere in racing games is a trend that needs to die. It's fine in Horizon, but it's been going on way too long and everyone is just copying everyone else. The Crew 1 had a pretty mediocre story, but then the Crew 2 is just a straight rip-off of Horizon and has no story at all. I also just don't get it. I assume people buy car games to race and look at cars, not listen to wub wub and do stupid dances wearing dumb clothes. In other news, I've *cough*acquired Toca 3 to try out. Apparently the Steam version has some type of DRM that will brick your PC. Super cool. Than
  20. Considering how many other franchises Take Two has killed in favor of forcing everyone to work on GTA and milk money from players I'd hope CM keeps control. These big buyouts always lead to the death of franchises. That being said, I'm still surprised how many studios CM has bought out themselves since I figured they were closing in on bankrupt.
  21. I still feel like tarmac was way better in the alpha build. I don't know what they did to it. Then again I haven't tried Germany since frankly, I'm not paying for it.
  22. Once again, lifetime and active are 2 very different metrics. Your favorite movie was probably seen by millions on release, but now no ones watching it currently so therefore no one's ever seen the movie. Or at any point since release. The Fulvia also easily outclasses the Mini.
  23. That's comparing current activity to lifetime activity, 2 different metrics.
  24. Someone posted it on the forum a while ago. Doesn't seem like they put it on Nexus... HAHA! Found it. Why it's not on Nexus, I don't know. Maybe I should think about adding it there, but then end up too lazy and not actually do it. For proof that D2 actually looked as bad as the picture I posted, here's with and without the filter.
