I't pains me to buy each and every Playstation just for Gran Turismo alone and miss out on Pc's superioriority in presentation and controls.
I could never get into Gran Turismo for some reason.
I am curious to see how the new one will look on the PS4 however.

By the way did anyone else have noticed the little text at the beginning of the trailer "actual PC gameplay footage"

Turns out, you make it about delivering cargo around Europe by truck.
You got it, and guess what it has Rift support too!

I've tried every CM racing game since Dirt, and I think Codemasters biggest fumble has been the alienation of it's original fans over the last 7 years. Where in GT and Forza add and improve with each title to meet the demands of its maturing user base, CM seems content to keep focused on selling to the same demographic, 12-18 year olds who aren't avid fans of any motorsport.

It's probably just their business model. They know they can't actually make fundamentally sound AI or a car physics engine to compete with the best sim racers on any platform, so they're selling to kids who have a passing interest in automotive sports, and through CM market research, this target market cares about how many followers or fans they have and always want to put their raddest race on Youtube. And because they are crushing can after can of Mountain Dew, you need to keep telling them to put it on Youtube.

And yet rally and F1 are the two most awesome motorsports to simulate in video games, and those games attract those new to the sport and those how have been following it for decades, and CM doesn't know how to please everybody.

Remember kids, you're sick bro, that was awesome. Put it on Youtube!
I think you go a bit overboard with that stuff.
I don't think Grid or Dirt were ever aimed at the hardcore racing sim guys the begin with.
I agree the latest iteration of their games had too much of the Dudebro-ing going on but if you go back and play Grid 1 or Dirt 1 those games were hardly sims.

Forza is great I've put endless hours into it but every single Forza game had the exact same problem. They become super boring.
Grid never got boring for me, every race was exciting (except those damn LeMans races they were fucking frustrating)
Even Forza tried to go down the Dudebro path with Horizon and those drift events they've added into 4.

Anyways hope CM will return to their routes with this game and finally move on from that premature Ken Block style hip hop bullshit the whole Dirt series is poisoned with.
Leave that type of shit for Need For Speed.

I think the argument in other games to remove damage modelling is that companies don't want their logos being destroyed or something equally dumb.
Yeah I remember Forza using that excuse a while back.

Please have damage-modelling. Please have damage-modelling. Please have damage-modelling.
What makes you think it won't have dmg modeling?
Grid 1 had the best damage modeling I've ever seen in any racing games.
That demo derby mp track was one of the best.
They've toned it down a bit for Grid2 not sure why, but I don't see the reason why they would get rid of it in Grid Autosport.

I thought Elite: Dangerous was primarily a single-player game with traditional multiplayer?
Yes that is how it is as far as I know

Not for me either. I prefer racing games that are closer to simulation the ground.

It's funny how he is almost the exact opposite of Chris "Showboat" Roberts who went from a pale, chubby, grizzled nerd in a jumpsuit at the start of the KS to a change-jingling nouveaux riche yuppie in a suit with dyed hair as the millions kept rolling in.
Braben on the other hand has managed to stay grounded with his humble British understatement where actions seem to be much more important than words to him.

ED FTW..
I am sure SC won't disappoint either but we will have to wait a lot longer for that game to be ready with all the bells and whistles those guys wants to have in that game.

I just got the Elite newsletter, in case anyone interested, some interesting stuff.

Hehe reminds me of these e-mails I am getting from "Apple" that I have to reset my password because it has been compromised and the e-mail has a special link to the pw reset.
Sure let me click on that and enter all my info why not, seems legit.

Have they got to the point yet in their development cycle of "Only 1,000 of these ships is available at this time with no future release. You can have one today for $10,000"?

Cause if they haven't, I predict that next.
I thought they did have some "limited edition" ships.

But I think 37% is probably the amount of games I own that I haven't actually played yet. It might even inch closer to 45-50%.

Sigh.
By the time you get to play them they will look and feel so outdated you do not want to play them at all.

Ricochet was part of the Half Life 2 pack years ago.
It came in at least the silver edition.
Oh that explains it
