This game and 2033 are two games on a long list of "to be played" for me. Curiously, I just noticed that there are a lot of shooters in my backlog. (FPS or TPS) I seem to be putting the entire genre off to the side...without really consciously thinking about it. I haven't played Dishonored or Bioshock Infinite for example. I know I will like them, just haven't prioritized them.
I can understand this. I bought all these games but for some reason they sit unplayed in my Steam list. I don't know if it's losing interest (I grew up on Quake and Doom) but these days all I play are RTS. Perhaps because they don't take much time. It's easy to predict how long it'll take me to get the game finished. I no longer enjoy the "visceral" nature of FPS. Seeing shell casings eject from yet another AK or AK-like weapon does not provide me the simple pleasure it once did

The tires are under heavy development. Keep in mind, we've only been on the new SETA tire model for the last few months, tires are still being made and tweaked. Right now they are adding the tire heating and wear that seems to be causing all sorts of issues, but is to be expected in pre-alpha with an early implementation. Also FFB is far from final AFAIK. Could account for the disconnected feeling. This all changes from build to build.

I'm sure Dmitri knows this, but those without access to the info we have may not.

We also have 2 pro drivers as handling and physics consultants, and judging by their forum posts, they take the job very seriously.

I'm not saying you're wrong. I'm just saying it's a bad time to judge the handling.

Well I don't get time to read the changelogs. I just run the updater occasionally and see if things have improved.

My point was mostly that a plethora of older and current sims feature better handling. Rfactor, the Simbin titles, on and on.

Their budget is going on great graphics. I still like it a lot.. They're getting there.

Been an "investor" for a year now. Car handling is an issue. It's not arcade. They seem to be trying for a sim but the cars somehow feel disconnected from the road. The game sorely needs some "ordinary" slower cars, too many super powered monster cars that are quite tough to drive with the disconnected handling. That said, it does look amazing. And driving the nippy Caterhams is fun.

Perhaps too many failed Kickstarters will teach us why traditional game development is run by bean counting MBA grads.

The backers are the publishers. This is a company approaching it's publisher and saying "hey this is where we're at, we need more time/funding". If the title is looking good the publisher will probably grant extra time/funding but require much closer involvement. With kickstarters the titles should be good, we know roughly what we're getting from the pitch. But if that title is crap, well unlike a publisher who has a contract with the developer he can't cut his losses and release or easily cancel, sue for breach of contract etc. We ultimately don't have that much power. This is a gamble.

If a kickstarter get's to the point of being funded initially one would hope it's already worth potentially kicking in some more cash.

I'm getting a strange lag with this game. It's running smoothly but it seems to be moving at 0.8x

Perhaps a vsync thing. It's odd. Never seen that before in a title.

I've also had some crashes.

This still looks like a COH expansion to me. Some of the reviews I've read confirm this. But I really didn't need reviews to know that. It was so obviously clear from the very first screenshots. Are PC gamers really happy to settle for the same engine and gameplay dressed up as a sequel at full price?

It's been 7 years since COH 1's release.

What about physics? In Arma 2 the vehicle physics were total crap...
Physx is now partly incorporated into the engine. Vehicle physics are largely the same though but things seem a little more natural. Ragdoll physics are finally in an ArmA title, less canned deaths. On the whole the physics are improved.

I wouldn't give most of them a second glance. Those were the best of show? Cereal? Man, I'd hate to see the worst. Still, good to see how the major publishers are taking the issue of sexism in the industry so seriously. Nope, no hypocrisy going on as far as I can see.

You wouldn't give them a second glance and they're "cereal" then go onto lecture the games industry about sexism. A classic cutter post

I can barely play Grid 2 because of the Bro who is always telling me what to do. I long for simple menu --> quickrace --> play. Rather than menu --> yo bro blah blah blah --> pointless title text --> wasup blah blah blah --> quick race blah blah blah --> blah blah blah --> blah --> play.
