  1. Hola! This thread is for exchanging thoughts about sim racing in general. So whether you're an avid sim racer or looking to get into it, this is the thread for you. It doesn't matter if it's on PC or console... as long as the game simulates real-world visuals/physics/audio, supports FFB steering wheels and features tuning, it's a racing sim as far as I'm concerned. Show off your racing rig setup, talk about your favourite titles, what gear you use, ask or give advice and whatever else is on topic! Willy-waving time! I'm heavy into Assetto Corsa and Dirt Rally. AC because it has a great community and loads of mods (such as the fantastic content manager UI and the Sol shader mod), and DR because it's the best rallying game I've played in ages. Other titles I'm playing are Dirt Rally 2, RaceRoom, Forza Motorsport 7 and Horizon 4, and I've recently bought Assetto Corsa Competitione. I'm actually using a laptop to run these in 2K resolution (2560x1440). It's a Lenovo Legion Y520-15IKBN with a quad-core i5-7300HQ CPU, Nvidia 4GB GeForce GTX1050 GPU, 8GB RAM which does the job for most of those games, but lacks the muscle to run DR2 and ACC on high/ultra setting so I may have to upgrade to a more beefy setup in the near future. Gear wise I'm using the Fanatec CSL wheel base with the P1 rim, CSR Elite pedals and the h-pattern/SQ shifter, which are hard-mounted on a Wheelstand Pro V2 deluxe. I'm using a very comfortable fully adjustable AutoStyle seat which I've hard-mounted (together with the wheel stand) onto a 22mm thick MDF base plate to minimise movement. I've screwed little rubber door stops underneath the base plate to minimise vibration into the floor. I'm using a Panasonic Viera TX-55CX700 as a monitor, which I'm planning to mount on the wall with a bracket soon so I won't need the table anymore. Lastly, I'm using a Turtle Beach Stealth 700 headset. Now show me yours!
  2. The original Automobilista was released in 2016 and is one of the most highly regarded driving sims ever released. The new game has just released into a short early access phase on Steam at a discounted price of £24.99. As a side note, it's only come out in early access due to the Covid-19 crisis, which has affected their ability to get everything finished on time and the main release will be 1 or 2 months from now. There is a crazy expensive season pass (£71.99!!), but you can ignore that as the game is pretty much feature complete and contains a crazy amount of content already. It's primarily based on the Brazilian racing scene, where the developers Reiza are based, but the new game contains content from all sorts of international racing disciplines. It's got racing trucks! Cars (and Trucks!): Tracks: Here's a link to the Reiza forum post for current content, as the image is hard to read here: https://forum.reizastudios.com/threads/automobilista-2-all-cars-and-tracks-currently-in-the-game-beta3.8704/ And this is just what's available now, there's more to be added during early access. The game is based on the same engine as Project Cars 2, so has all the same great weather/time-of-day features, but has been hugely tweaked by the devs and already has excellent force feedback/AI etc and is fully VR compatible too. I'm very impressed with it so far, driving the 90s F1 car at Suzuka felt pretty special for example. Anyone else interested or getting it?
  3. Ongoing expansions are PC only, but you will be able to copy your console save (not just your asset balance) over to the PC version, and Frontier will provide a free copy of Elite Dangerous for you to play.
  4. By Maxis Official Site Release Date: September 4th 2014 ABOUT IMAGES VIDEOS Went ahead and got my girlfriend the limited edition, custom Steelseries mouse and Qck mousepad. Now here's hoping the thing will actually run properly on her laptop as we did a "Can You Run It?" system requirement check and it didn't meet the minimum specs required. I swear, when I explained to her what all of that meant and how she might have trouble running the game, the utter disappointment and misery across her face was priceless. Later I told her that the only component of her laptop which doesn't meet the requirements is the processor and that the game will probably run just fine. Probably. I do have to admit kind of looking forward to checking this out myself. Had a ton of fun with Sims 1 (must've been 1997 or something), mostly with the building of stuff and constantly redecorating the house. Except for the mancave where all of the electronic gadgets were (including an Oculus Rift even!). That room was perfect from the start. I also recall setting Sims on fire. Good times indeed. Oh I dread to think how the weekends will be when she's too busy with her Sims and therefore not coming over. I'll have to play Titanfall and watch Football or something instead. Damn.
  5. Assemble your own colourful crew, hop inside a range of specialised tanks and roll into crazy tank warfare for up to six players in Tank Troopers! Operate more than 30 different tanks with intuitive controls and slog it out with the enemy in a number of expansive maps, complete with destructible environments. Perch on a faraway hill and aim through the periscope to expertly place your shots, or face your enemies head on with a frontal assault! Rally the troops and buckle up for a panzer bonanza in explosive local multiplayer matches for up to six players. With download play, you can enjoy six-player skirmishes with just one copy of the game between you – no soldier left behind! If you consider yourself a one-man army, there’s an action-packed single-player campaign with 30 objective-based missions where you can hone your tank-based tactics. Want a little extra firepower? You can augment your abilities and get brand new ones by hiring troopers! These wacky warriors ride alongside you in the hull, and they can supply increased firepower, improved mobility and more enhancements at the touch of a button. Some troopers can even fire paintballs to block the enemy’s view, or stop them in their tracks entirely with a freeze attack. This is not your average vehicular warfare! Debut trailer: Tutorial: >> Official website The game in itself looks nothing out of the ordinary, but it's been developed by Vitei (the guys who did the Steel Diver games) so it might prove a neat little download title.
  6. This looks intriguing, and only a week to the release of Episode 1.
  7. Out now!! And this time... ... it seems you can swim :-D
  8. So the latest addition to the immensily popular Animal Crossing franchise is this; Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. An upcoming community simulation videogame developed and published by Nintendo, and due Q3 2015 for the Nintendo 3DS. The game is a spin-off of the Animal Crossing series where the player has to design homes for the various anthropomorphic animal characters. Central to the game's concept is the ability to completely design the villagers' homes. The game was also confirmed to be the first to support amiibo in card format, to be released along the game. The Amiibo Cards are obviously more portable for on-the-go play, and the new Nintendo 3DS comes with built-in Amiibo functionality. Other forms of 3DS (i.e. the original 3DS, 3DS XL, and 2DS) will require a separate NFC reader/writer accessory that will launch the same time as Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. And with over 300 characters, that's going to be a lots of cards...

  9. Not content with only having only one second-life experience in Animal Crossing: New Leaf? Then have another one in Tomodachi Life. Welcome to “Tomodachi Life” ("Tomodachi Collection" in Japan) for Nintendo 3DS — a living world in your pocket, made of people you know! Take all your preconceived notions about life’s possibilities, crumple them into a ball and toss them out the window. It’s time to star in a whole new life. On June 9, visit the outrageously bizarre island world of Tomodachi Life for the Nintendo 3DS system. Everyone you know, and everyone you wish you knew, should prepare to meet their Mii maker – you! – as you build a bustling fantasy population of friends, family and even celebrities, all in one wild and hilarious world. The real emotional connection you already share with your Mii characters will keep you glued to the drama, intrigue and hilarity that ensues as everyone goes about their extraordinary daily lives, evolving and interacting in unpredictable and often uproarious ways. The Tomodachi franchise already has taken Japan by storm, selling more than 5.5 million games. Its first European title, Tomodachi Life, is poised to stake out unprecedented video game territory when it launches June 9. Nintendo fans are familiar with Mii characters, but now they come to life in ways they never have before – with their own lives, interests and personalities. Customization and open-ended play are two big video game trends for 2014, and Tomodachi Life delivers a fun, creative experience that makes you want to visit again and again, because there’s always something interesting going on. “Tomodachi” is the Japanese word for “friend.” After completely customizing all your Mii characters, from their voices and appearances right down to their personality quirks, you’ll recognize them instantly. But you can’t possibly predict what they’ll do next. For the first time ever, Mii characters behave based on the personality traits you select, playing out the drama you set in motion. A celebrity might fall in love with your math teacher. Your mom might jump on stage to belt out heavy metal songs. Or you could become famous striking poses down the runway of a fashion show wearing cute and silly outfits. Best of all, you can document these unbelievable moments for posterity and share them all with your friends via the Nintendo 3DS Image Share service. Even your far-fetched celebrity dreams can come true in Tomodachi Life. If you have ever wanted international superstar Christina Aguilera to join you in a sing-off, or believed that she would become BFFs with your cousin or wished she would perform a song with your customized lyrics, it could happen here. The multi award-winning singer has signed on to be a part of Nintendo’s promotional campaign for the game, and her Mii character will be available at launch. Aguilera’s Mii character also will guest star in a TV commercial and in online videos that show all the exciting things that happen when celebrities mingle with Miis players know personally. Additional celebrities involved with Tomodachi Life will be announced over the upcoming weeks. The plot of Tomodachi Life thickens with the addition of each Mii character. As they deliver one gripping twist and turn after another, you can reward them with in-game gifts and clothes, their favorite foods or special flourishes for their apartments. Together you can further broaden your Tomodachi Life horizons by exploring the island, solving characters’ problems and helping them with their needs. Japanese overview trailer: Official Japanese website: http://www.nintendo.co.jp/3ds/ec6j/index.html Official European website: http://www.nintendo.co.uk/Games/Nintendo-3DS/Tomodachi-Life-871968.html Still, the Tomodachi Collection series is one of the best selling Nintendo games over in Japan, and I will definitely have a go at a more antropocentric version of my beloved Animal Crossing series. Hopefully before long
  10. I couldn't find a thread about this, an Indie game in the Papers, Please vein. Apologies if there is one already. You control a newspaper in a totalitarian post-war state. New trailer. Developer Wired preview Playable original Game Jam version Full version coming to Steam later on in 2015.
  11. As requested by a few people in the Steam thread, a thread of its own for this excellent latest instalment in the Tropico series. Here's what I posted there: The game is excellent. Since posting that I've played a good bit more of it and can attest to the high quality of the campaign, which is pretty surprising really! It's very clever and frequently very funny and satisfying - it has actual plot twists and everything, and combines some excellent continuity between missions with allowing you to more or less start over once you've figured out most of how the game works. I know there are quite a few management-game fans on here - and rightly so. I highly recommend Tropico 5; it's accessible and not too difficult but can provide a good challenge. It's probably the management/citybuilder game that I find most compelling and the one in which the growth of your settlement seems most natural. I'll probably do a bit of a let's play in this thread later just to show how an island can evolve through the eras and go from a tiny no-horse village to a thriving modern metropolis.
  12. Just had the heads up about this new game coming soon. Its in Beta so join now to get a key. You basically take part in famous war battles with players around the world.

  17. This is pretty incredible. Attempt to perform heart surgery using controls as unresponsive and cack handed as those in QWOP, with hilarious results. Its a free game developed from one of those indie game jam things. http://globalgamejam...-simulator-2013
  18. Mario Wynands of Sidhe expanded on some comments he made on NeoGAF: http://www.nowgamer....ox_720_ps4.html So is Mario correct? will somebody have to leave the island as the food runs out?
