You can get in by preordering
You can keep your "beta"

These could be the glory days of Dirt modding because when the game is finished, they may tighten down the hatches. No one has figured out how to crack the new file system for F1 2015, but looks like Dirt Rally Early Access is more like previous releases (perhaps because it doesn't 'yet' use EGO Engine 4.0 like F1?)
I was just reading the F1-2015 review on PCGamer, what a mess.
The last F1 game I got is 2013 with the classic cars, they've yet to top that version.

I am much more interested in the wireless dongle for the xbone controllers so I don't have to plug the controllers in anymore.

So I guess Microsoft's dedication to PC gaming is an xbox app in windows 10.
Just fucking great. What's next? DX12 requires the power of the cloud?

G2A is your friend. I bought my copy - GoG verstion - for $38 CDN, they're selling for 18 Pounds on G2A right now - again the GoG version. Steam wants $60 CDN atm and they can kiss my ass.

It was similar with GTA5, The Steam version was the most expensive

Anyone know if you'll be able to do a full (free) install as opposed to an upgrade? Most of my files are already on a back-up drive, and I don't have much for programs with the exception for games; so all else being equal I'd rather do a fresh install than a back-up.
It looks like it will ask you if you want to keep your files or erase everything according to this point 6

6. Archive Your Old Data & Create A Back Up

Even though the Windows installation asks you if you want to keep files on your computer when you start installing, it’s always a good idea to archive any files you want to keep.

Yeah the no DLC statement was a bit surprising.
It's almost like Dirt Rally was just kind of a side project for them just to see if there's any interest. Kind of like Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

I am not sure how much more $$ would moddability of a racing game bring in.
It would be nice but I personally never missed mods in racing games tbh.

it was the nay-sayers that brought the CIG system to a collapse?
That is totally possible.
Nay sayers talked people out of pouring more money into Star Citizen, and Roberts ran out of cash and bankrupt.

By the way I've tried the tutorial mission last night after downloading all the patches. I got into a ship pressed the go forward button and the ship went from 0 to 10,000 miles/hour in 0.0001 seconds so yeah ship handling still needs a tiny bit of work imo.
At that point I just shut it down and went to play something else. I'll check it again in a few months.
Graphics looked pretty good though.

I have not downloaded the patches in a while, does the space ships still control like a free floating camera? No weight, or mass stop and spin around on a dime?
Nope. In fact controlling the drift it a major part of the gameplay. The latest patch has considerably restricted boost to prevent it being abused, making it a strategic tool rather than a fundamental flight mechanic. The controls have changed in this latest patch and more work is being done. The flight model is not final.
Thanks
I will check it out than. Ones the client downloads all 16Tb of patches

haa!! That's the rub..its supposed to be a space combat flight sim, and you'd think they'd put SOOO MUCH resources into that huh so its like the BEST experience ever??? Wrong..it feels like they put 10% effort in. Its awkward and just feels 'wrong' -again because the fan boys demanded that all the thrusters all over the ship have some point of control over its vectors..while that sounds cool N all it doesn't make it fun, so they have to come up with ways to counter the 'purists' method of control with a fake fake computer control that's supposed to turn the Newtonian physics into a semi-arcadey but 'fun' flight control, which in turn is complete bollocks and feels horrible..fuck up after fuck up.

But as a stretch goal shouldn't this have come after the, you know, actual space game is complete?
I guess the argument now is that the fps part was always a main component of the game and absolutely needed for the space game because of the boarding mechanics or whatever.

I actually liked the other BiA games. With the amount of modern warfare shooters I am aching for a good WW1 or WW2 game. It looks like every developer and their dog is working on either a space game or modern/future shooter
A little variety wouldn't hurt

I just wish they had a 40" model that wasn't a few mortgage payments.
Same here man. I don't know why 27" is the top and you can hardly find anything above that.
Even 32" monitors cost multiple times the 27" price

I am sure there will be plenty of gameplay videos on youtube ones the beta is out, if not already.
I saw Raptor had a few video up on youtube including an interview with the devs.
The game looks good there's no doubt about it, but so did all their previous games.
Link to the Raptor vids

Awesome developer with great support of their games, free DLC etc., but unfortunately their main focus for all their previous games were on the MP.
With RTS games, I have zero interest in MP.
I'll keep an eye on this one but I won't be preordering. Probably grab it on sale after release

I am just glad I did not back this game with more than the minimum $35 or whatever it was. Clearly putting more money into the game won't make it come out sooner.
