  1. Though even by late 2001 wasn't the internet pretty widespread for many people under 40 in the home, broadband was starting to be installed in homes for that demographic at reasonable cost (£30 for pipex?) and forums/online sites were pretty up for it? I wonder how many people read gaming sites in the UK v magazines even then? Funny thing is reading that PS2 mag from the time and the review for GTA3 was spot on. 8/10, lots of praise but criticism of the out of car shooting and some repetitive missions. Yet they led with WWF which at the time many couldn't care less about. I mean it was hardly no1 seller each year? Looked like many mags were going for a 15 year old demographic.
  2. Boring end to boring race. Always likely given these cars
  3. Merc that struggles to follow now struggling to follow. Who knew
  4. GTA 3 having no hype thing is odd to me. I loved GTA and couldn't wait for it and I recall others being the same? Must be wrong then on that front. I was actually disappointed with it at first beyond the 3d. If I recall they kept in a top down 2d view. The mention of GTA London reminds me I bought that on release for PS1. It must have been buggy as could never get .ore than 1 star for chases but no one else ever mentioned it. Maybe they patched it quick for subsequent copies.
  5. No idea why Merc didn't pit Hamilton the lap after Perez as he was quicker and had the undercut? Or at least the same lap as perez which was one lap after the other leaders had. Once they decided to stay out may as well stay out. Three options there no taken and he ends up 5th and could so easily have been seventh with graining everyone knew about. He's rightfully pissed off
  6. We come back to the issue again of so much ad revenue across publishing now going through a few big companies who take a large share (Google and Facebook). Other countries are trying to push back on that but not so much in the UK. Because of those companies taking big shares of revenue, sites then often compensate through more ads, so more people get as blockers. A downside spiral ensues. Reform of the whole advertising industry is needed. In the meantime subscriptions are adopted by more publishers. They're in a very tough place.
  7. Probably no penalty from the incident itself. Penalties for both for what happened after? Verstappen flooring it when rear in the air in another car and Lewis trying to reverse with Max getting out.
  8. GT Sport for me is head and shoulders the best GT ever, and I'd never played an online racer before. It made it so simple to play online and ensures a good race almost every time. More cars and tracks in the same basic concept and I'm in. Single player with AI would need to be radically better than every single previous version in GT and I can't see it. I'd love good AI and damage but Polyphony never do it in single player.
  9. Let's hope it doesn't become the bore fest many predicted at this track
  10. More heavy rain coming. They'll get 10 laps in at best with this new 3 hour limit.
  11. Was it Fuji 2007 that spent about an hour behind the safety car at the start? Looks like similar today at best
  12. Bottas new contract incoming Knew the rain would ruin the race. 99 per cent I'd welcome it. Not today
  13. The one race where I was hoping it'd stay dry at the start as the top 3 lined up nicely.
  14. Have you never watched football? Questions always asked by pundits and (decent) press after every defeat. And some very valid ones this time. England sat back and lost their flow.
  15. Goodness me the Express is drivel. Is there a find Maddie quest?
  16. How was the Red Bull half a second quicker than Mercedes on the straight? I've heard this a couple of times and it seems massive. Has something changed very recently?
  17. Even in the last 10 seconds England would do anything but but the ball in the box. Not that there was anyone there half the time
  18. I don't see it either. Have rebooted to no avail
  19. Well it got me on wiki to read about Commedia dell'arte which I'd not heard of. A quick read brought to light some tropes they'd taken across. Not sure that added a great deal in retrospect, though I thought it was alright beforehand.
  20. Links Awakening didn't do great numbers if I recall correctly?
  21. I grabbed a Series S as couldn't find an X anywhere. A waste of time really having had a One X. Older games look worse (900p v 4k or 1080p) and almost no exclusives for next gen. I expected a slow start but expected some more optimised for S/X and exclusives 6 months later.
  22. Ham was 1.5 secs behind and catching rapidly (albeit with traffic) when he went off. Who knows if he'd get past Max but seemed very possible.
  23. Looking forward to trying today's addition rain on your parade. Barely know a thing about it but pics look a bit katamari-like
