  1. That race was amazing, only beaten by finally getting gold on the Spa test. End of the first lap in 7th place and it starts to rain as I'm coming up to the pits, nobody in front has pitted so I come in for wets thinking finally some good luck. Rain is brief so I get maybe a third of a lap before it's back to slick territory, but there's more rain on the radar but who knows if it will hit or if it will be just another brief shower. So do I listen to Brundle and pit to always be on the right tyre, or gamble and stick with the wets in the hope the weather comes back to me. I decide to stick with the wets and just hope I don't lose too much time or burn through them. Whilst it's easy to drive a wide car around parts of the ring I still end up losing places and time, I think I fell down to 11th and maybe 2:30 off the lead. Then towards the end of lap three the rain came in, even better the heaven's opened and my tyres where still in great condition. So I went from struggling with wets in the dry and falling back to flying on the last lap, taking huge chunks out of those ahead each sector, I got really dialled in. In the end I was 3rd I think 15sec off the lead. So in the space of a few laps I went from Vettel making his early bold gamble to Russell on Saturday then finally to Schumacher dancing in the rain. The Le Mans races in the Nations and Toyota cups have also been great. Which just adds to the annoyance, there's possibility for so much great racing but it feels like they don't mix it up much. Give us a daily race D, make it 25min with variable weather and light conditions. Have they ever said why there's only three daily Sport races?
  2. This week is a great example of this issue, start 7th or lower at Spa and you start in the Bus Stop. I didn't set a time for my first race so I was at the back of the grid, I was still in the Bus Stop whilst the leaders where going through La Source, kills the race before you even start. The variety is a real annoyance, feels like Brazil, Austria, Suzuka and Spa are on rotation for Gr.3 and little mixing it up with weather and laps. Then instead of adding a daily race without DR/SR as I thought they would they've just changed Race A, so if like me trying to improve DR is a driving factor it's one less race. Still enjoying it, I just wish there was more choice. In more positive news I got a BMW Z4 GT3 engine swap for my roulette today, which I could drop into an M3 '03. The M3 is ridiculous now, well in a straight line, far too much power for the chassis in the corners but still fun to drive. Was only a couple of second slower than a Gr.3 911 around Monza.
  3. I just really enjoyed the Ezio trilogy and always wanted something similar with another character. Syndicate and Evie Frye where great but she got left behind, at first I was disappointed at the Odyssey announcement as I thought Origins perfectly set up a Bayek and Aya sequel. Odyssey did then go onto be one of my games of the generation with Kassandra but then we got Valhalla, which I'm fine to leave behind. Now it's onto Infinity which is years off and an unknown change and who knows what could change along the way.
  4. I found the DLC fairly substantial, 12hrs roughly for First Blade and 20hrs for Atlantis, that was after about 100hrs in Odyssey scouring the map which I absolutely loved. I did find myself starting to get burnt out in the DLC, First Blade wasn't as fun but Atlantis is much better, so take a break before that if needed. Still disappointed Ubisoft don't stick with a protagonist but especially so after Odyssey, a Kassandra trilogy would have been brilliant.
  5. I didn't like it at first but the Toyota GR010 turned out to be pretty great at Le Mans, top speed of the Group C cars but much more stable, doesn't want to kill me when I tap the brakes unlike the XJR-9. Used it for the Nations race at the weekend, I was quite surprised when I breezed past a 919 down Mulsanne, I thought they must have been doing some extreme fuel saving but I kept passing them with ease. Checking the replay after the race and the Toyota was consistently 20-30 mph faster, I was slower in the corners but that's likely more me than the car, that straight line speed was key to the win.
  6. The Capcom EU stream is smoother:
  7. Not available for download yet but now showing as enhanced for Series X|S. So seems to be looking good for a release tonight at the showcase which starts at 11pm.
  8. 2, 3 and 7 are getting free next-gen updates. Seems the updates have been added to the PSN servers, so hopefully not long to wait, maybe get a date or release on Monday when Capcom have their showcase.
