Just had an epic touring car championship decider on Grid Autosport.
Coming into the penultimate race, I was 14 points behind in the championship and started third with the two ravenwest cars on the front row. Nathan McKane was the championship leader. Off the grid, the two ravenwests collide, I sweep through and win the first race.

Last race, McKane starts on pole after finishing last in the first race. I start last. I come through the pack to second - the position I need - but manage to get past. I'm quick in the last and first sectors but slow in the middle two (the track is Algarve). I manage to win and claim a brilliant championship!

Thing is that it's up to the game devs to implement them. I'm guessing most early games didn't because a lot of them were also on 360 and PS4 so they just ported them. But I'm expecting to feel them in most new games :)

I hope so bud, then maybe Sony will bring a new version of the DS4 pad out as it feels empty when using that controller now. It doesn't sound exciting but once you use it, it feels awesome!


Just used the head tracking on Forza 5 and although it works ok it makes the sound go all messed up.... Impossible to use while it's like that.

@RevolvingPrawn‌ Will you be getting Forza Horizon 2 when it comes out bud? I loved the first one and although it's not set out to be a sim it still looks awesome. It seems to build on the first one which was fantastic fun so I'll defiantly be getting it, but I'm hoping some people I know will be getting it as the social features look good.

I sure will dude, really enjoyed the first one too so the sequel is a must have X1 game for me :) It may not be sim, but it's still closer to sim than most other arcade racers out there :p

Yea it is. I loved the first one and was surprised how sim like it was. It's sorta the same way Codemasters make their games. Also for me it seems like a much better prospect compared to DriveClub, the more details I got about DC the less it appealed to me but who knows it could be great. Horizon2 looks amazing and with day/night cycles + dynamic weather it seems to build on what Forza 5 did. Glad I'll have someone to play it with  :)

Pretty shocking that Titanfall doesn't, I thought it would. If Sony made a similar feature then it would get implemented in more games. I remember when I got a PS3 it didn't even have rumble effect lol. I already have Watch Dogs on PC so I won't be getting it for X1.

Hughesy said:

Probably won't take as long installing Fifa as it's a smaller game. I still only have Forza for X1 but might get Fifa 15 when it's out for it, as I already have '14 on PS4. Don't think you'll get to test the new impulse triggers on Fifa 14 as I don't think it supports it, but Forza takes full advantage of them. Shooters make good use of them according to @RevolvingPrawn‌  

Yeah that's why I chose to start with Fifa as I was just looking to get started and given Fifa I knew wsa a smaller game it wouldn't take so long. I've ordered 15 for PC rather than my X box but I ordered that before I made my plans for the Xbox though. I may get 15 on the Xbox as well but I won't be rushing into it given i'll already have it on PC I've got watchdogs on PC as well. I'll mostly be playing sports games on my X box  as I got an NBA demo downloaded as well will probably get the full game of that eventually but I'm just going to stick with the demo for now as I've just spent enough money given I've only just got the console. I do plan on grabbing that Master Chief collection though when it's released and am looking forward to that as apart from Halo's 1 and 2 on PC I've never played the series and being the sci fi buff I am I know I'm going to enjoy that.

So nobody found that article funny then? Here's another one, Ryse (so called Xbox exclusive) is coming to PC. Must be one last chance for Crytek to make money before they go bust.

Not for me, I actually find it quicker to use ie switching between things, and my games download faster but that's because less people use it. Maybe try quitting and restarting Origin to see if that fixes it.


@AMS97KRR Mario Kart 8 is brilliant but if that's the only game you'd play then it's pointless. I play it quite a lot. Mario games are great fun on it especially 3d World, and the new Donkey Kong game. Pikmin 3 is very addictive too. For me it has so many great games that you can't get on the other consoles which is why I bought it. 

Unlike other systems the first party games always come out perfect or near as and don't require fixes before everything works.

@Hughesy Yeah that is the only issue, I might only play a couple of games on it. Mario Kart 8, Super Smash bro's and maybe a couple of others in the future. Maybe when the price drops (if they drop the pad thing, apparently that thing could drop the price by like £50) I'll pick one up or maybe a pre-owned one but for now I guess I'll just wait and see.

I'm glad there's a free trial for BF4 otherwise I'd be pissed right now..... Can't even get past the menus as it's running at 1fps lol I'm sure a 780 with 3570k can run the game near maximum setting let alone the bloody menus. Got a serious problem somewhere but not sure what. Can even get to the graphics settings, the mouse moves across nice and smooth as if it's playing a 60fps but everything else is running at 1fps.


Edit: Found the problem, seems to be to do with MSI afterburner but not sure why.lol

Honestly, I wouldn't bother with Ryse. The story is ok, it's entertaining enough, and the fighting mechanics are pretty good. It's a brutal game with some of the executions you can do.

But it's extremely rinse and repeat. About 95% of the time you play, it's just the same melee combat over and over again. It's not a terrible game or anything, but wait till it hits £10/£15 before dropping money on it.

that's what I would probably do anyway given I do have a lot of other games on my radar like Fifa 15 Project Cars and the Mater Chief collection for XB1 definitely looks good

Destiny > Halo ;)

struggling to decide which one to get  :p


 For me it's an easy choice I don't really do multiplayer well and Destiny is mostly multiplayer being an MMO plus other than 1&2 on PC I've never played Halo. I often struggle with shooters on console but Halo (or at least the Master Chief collection) to me now I've chosen the XB1 as my next gen path looks too good  to turn down

I'm not much a fan of MMO's or mainly online games either, but the way Destiny does it doesn't really make it feel like an MMO. 

I never had to speak to any player I met, I'd just help them out, or get help from them, give them a wave or a dance and then shoot off to do my own thing. It feels like a single player game where you might randomly run into other players, team up with them shortly to achieve an objective, and then carry on with your mission. You don't have to interact with them at all if you don't want to other than that :)

BF4's pretty damn good so far....

I'll see what the online is like later. Absolutely crap with a keyboard and mouse


Graphics are awesome and they aren't even close to being maxed out :L

Why not use a game pad then? I am as hands won't let me play  for long anymore using K/M

@RevolvingPrawn Can't wait to team up with you in Destiny, should be fun.

I reckon it will be man :) We'll have to play with the random purple ball and the football, set up a dance off, and trampoline on the building at The Tower :D That stuff is far more important than completing missions ;)

Well I was using some programs to get the DS3 to work. The 1st program worked fine and got all the drivers downloaded, but the 2nd program didn't recognize it despite it being shown in the devices and printers bit so god knows whats wrong

@RevolvingPrawn‌  I have no idea what any of that means but sounds fun! I didn't play the beta.

BF4 looks amazing on PC especially at 1440p. I'm surprised it's playing at 60fps as I couldn't max bf3 at this res so they must've done a good job at optimising the engine.

I've had to re type this twice now as each time it says "this post will show after it's been approved"


Silly Forum, this time I'm not quoting any posts as I think it's something to do with that...

If you had an Xbox controller it'd work without any issues ;) Xbox FTW.

Yeah, that works. But I saw that after you've used that you use something called DS3 Tools which assigns the Xbox controller buttons to the PS3 controller but it doesn't recognise the controller so the aren't assigned :L

Even when using a 360 controller some of the menus won't work without clicking the mouse and in game lol really breaks they immersion and the ingame button prompts are always keyboard which means you have to guess what controller button to press, very lazy from  Dice. Now I know PC elitists will say "oh you should you k/m" but nowadays a lot of people use a controller. Other devs cope just fine so not sure why they couldn't put 360 prompts ingame.

True. But BF4 is the only PC game I've ever had that problem on :)

Gotta update my graphics card drivers (?) or something before I can do the 2nd mission :/ Attempted online...............Oh dear...

@Hughesy we'll need to have a game on BF4 sometime :P

Probably won't play it online sorry bud. I'm just going to complete single player and move on lol  I always get slaughtered when playing fps online on pc, I don't seem to have that problem when playing them on consoles (I'm not saying console players are worse btw before someone gets offended) I'm just not as good on pc for some reason... 

What's wrong when you play the second mission then? I have the latest Nvidia driver so I won't need to do that, does your framerate go down or something? I haven't got to the second mission yet.

Our PC uses AMD. Nah its just needing an update of some kind. It warned me before the first mission that I needed to update it or the FPS and quality could suffer significantly or just not work at all.

I never buy games for the PC so I'm not too surprised its needing updates installed :L

Probably going to jump on RACE 07 sometime tomorrow. I'm terribly out of shape with this game, but still a blast.

@RevolvingPrawn Thats because you can't actually talk to anyone, you can only talk to people if your on a fireteam.

@SynGamer Ive been on Race 07 lately my username is cougs100 if your ever on at the same time :)

Not really a game, but it's on the Xbox One, and I think this is awesome! For the price, I'll definitely be picking one up :)

http://www.totalxbox.com/80169/xbox-one-tv-tuner-announced-available-in-october/

Seen that although pointless for me as I have Sky+HD box. It's a fantastic price though.
