  1. So they are charging for stuff they have no idea if it's any good or not? What happens if they implement them (beyond the concept art they must have at minimum done so far to even know they have 12 of them) and they're shit - they just ship them anyway?
  2. There is no point in developing great wet tyres if the race director is basically going to wait until the track is virtually dry before going racing anyway. It certainly felt at times this year that the wet tyre was redundant as the racing was basically only ever allowed in intermediate conditions. As soon as it got wetter, they stopped it.
  3. Is this, from the Wiki entry, true!? I would have loved to have seen that if so (as well as RS of course):
  4. Wowzers - looks like somebody is actually giving that a go! https://www.lsdwa.com/projects/fractalus/ Fractalus 1.0.0 VR for Windows x64 (146.1MB) VR-only build. Please read instructions. Controller required. Windows 64-bit only. Compatible with Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and OpenVR/SteamVR compatible headsets.
  5. List for the 'This or That' today (atomic numbers):
  6. Not overall though really - I mean they've sold 250k this year compared to 87k last - I'd say they'd be happy with that kind of progress really. It's certainly a better picture than prior gen for them. Especially when you say: But they are the ones running behind YTD still (885k vs 917k), and must be disappointed they are fighting more with MS in Japan and just having to watch Switch disappear off into the distance.
  7. Let me know when you're on and we can set a password to ensure you get me - it'll likely scale me down (what lvl are you at?), but I'll give you a hand no problemo! My tag is rxgraves - add me
  8. I'd be happy to help if needed - it's basically all I'm doing now; going on, putting my sign down (near & far of course) and helping people. I've wrapped everything else up and can't be bothered to do it all again (twice) jsut for the final two achievements (I did the Ranni/stars ending)
  9. Some good stuff, but they totally lose me when they suggest the game would be better if the enemies scaled. I totally disagree with that, in any game really. If I've gone away and got stronger, I want to come back and swat the earlier stuff like the powerful beast I now am, not struggle against an early enemy still because they've also managed to miraculously power up despite not having to undertake the same bothersome quests as I have. It's not bad to come back and feel stronger, it's bad to come back and feel like everything you've done was for nothing really as everything around you has just matched you up anyway. Blurrgghhhh. There's always challenge in ER if you want to find it, but going back to Limgrave and feeling like a god compared to how you had to creep around earlier is awesome not something that needs to be designed out.
  10. I'm sure I read some back-story on that recently that basically said the developer(s) had a disagreement with Atari and basically gave them the rough version of the game to publish as a protest against not being paid or some such.....I'll try to find it again! It's such a shame the Jaguar selection is so small - would have loved to have seen titles like Ultra Vortek, Iron Soldier, Checkered Flag - and some of the CD stuff as well like Battlemorph, Hover Strike, or even Highlander. EDIT:
  11. It's deffo on the XBox store: https://www.xbox.com/en-gb/games/store/atari-50-the-anniversary-celebration/9n3tfdsq531t
  12. That's a claim that basically ignores Switch - which is is certainly larger as a total userbase, quite often larger on a monthly unit sales basis, and only mostly behind on revenue because it's a lot cheaper.
  13. This is a great point - it would be a bit strange for Amecia to be silent and just expect Hugo to deal with everything - he's a kid, so constantly reminding, encouraging, helping him is natural. You would say "over here, through this gap" rather than just nothing and expect the child to be Indiana Jones.
  14. You don't have to, but it will certainly help as it doesn't do any kind of re-cap at the beginning oddly enough. I'd say play the first one as it's great anyway, but YMMV on that (and this one as it's deffo more of the same).
  15. If you didn't like the first game, no it's not going to convince you. Not sure even why you'd really hate the first one but download and play this on day 1 to be honest. But if you did like the first, and many people did, then it's more of the same and I'm genuinely looking forward to that as I loved the style and atmosphere of the first one. Not perfect by any measure, I'm looking at you cart section, but fun and an experience. I get you don't like it, and that's fine, but it's nonsense hyperbole to call it "one of the worst games" you've ever played unless you've been a very lucky and very selective gamer for your whole life.
  16. Personally, I'm more bothered about the quality of the game than the frame rate - I'm certainly not going to deny myself a good game because it's "only 30 fps". Christ, some stuff I used to play years back did well to hit 10 and I still had a good time. Imagine never playing something like Starfox because it wasn't 60 fps. I'm not saying 60 would not be better, before anyone jumps in with that one...just that a solid 30 is perfectly fine in some places (this is hardly a twitch shooter etc) I'll save you Hugo!
  17. If I was MS, even if I'd planned to be nice about this originally, I do my best to shaft them now. They're being massively hypocritical.
  18. That Marko quote should set alarm bells riniging at the FIA (yeah, I know lol) - if the teams think they lack teeth, and they won't punish infringements in any meaningful way, then the risk is well worth the reward every single time. They have to do something to make teams think [at least] twice.
  19. And that's a big issue with the other teams - the overspend gives them a headstart that just remains there if they take points or fine them etc - they got 'artificially' ahead by spending more so it needs something to allow the others to get caught back up. The entire idea was to 'level the playing field', so you need to be seen to do something if one team just ignores that (especially when it's the team that has pulled itself so far ahead in development terms - everyone will always wonder quite how much was brilliance, quite how much was just raw development spend.
  20. Yeah, blatantly now the championship is won they will invoke "suspension from a stage in the championship" at one of Austin/Mexico/Brazil/Abu Dhabi that really makes no difference at all to anything. It's a mess though - because if it's not a significant punishment you can bet every other team will look and try to work out if the risk is worth the reward moving forward....certainly will have been for Red Bull. Horner calling for Merc to 'retract their dafamatory statements' now looks like [even more of] a prize twunt.
