I think the last world sums up the part the argument is about. Driving a "bad" car at slower speed gives more excitement than driving a safe modern car with that same speed.
It's simply because you think you are going to die all the time. Driving a modern and 24 year old Toyota feels completely different. In the old car you got more respect for the car, the steering is heavy and the car is lighter, and not the other way around. You can feel the road. Down a motorway 120 km/h feels absolutely insane, when in a modern car you feel completely numb.
The gameplay in the video looks shit, I was honestly very disappointed with that when I saw it yesterday. The sounds and the movements are not really there, and the driving looks just awful and static, might be the camera though. Or it might just be my too high expectations, because the original Mafia was so great and that GTA IV just raised the bar on arcade car handling and everything. I don't care if people consider it the most over rated game ever, it's not, it's awesome (if you don't care about how your cousin wants to go bowling and drinking with you all the time). I'm sure we all are expecting a more sophisticated and stylish mobster version GTA IV.
But let's hope they are still far away from release. Cutscenes and athmosphere seem to be spot on. I hope they can finish up the most crusial part, the gamelay itself.
Yes, probably the reason, didn't realise they are not all the same cards after all in the highest speed class. The camera should be able to do unlimited 3 fps shooting, this card gets stuck after that three. Shitty Verbatim with their affordable mediums. Guess I need to get a quicker card some day.
You mean too low as too fast? Because I'd imagine that was the reason the blur is not that good, he was doing much slower than any of the cars...those shots game out even worse imo, plus the bike isn't lined up properly for the plane of whatever is called. It sure is hard, was nice trying it though.
Well you should have had your window down and been hanging outside the car of course, show some commitment! But still some nice pictures I give you that.
Was trying to do some panning practice today myself, first with a train and then with some cars doing about 80 km/h. Nice spot in the way that you can see the cars coming very far, but the traffic was just so damn slow at the time. Waiting for the cars was too boring, taking my folding chair with me and sit there for a traffic peak next time.
I think this was maybe the best shot I got. I know its quite static, and I'm a total noob but the driver is sharpish and the backround is kinda blurry, and the wheels are not distorted like on most of my other shots. Although I should have been closer to the road for a proper picture. Didn't want to distract anyone so I wasn't.
But the thing I like with the picture is the way he just glanced at me like I was the fool and not him. Must been a bit cold.
Things I learnt today: My Nikon D60 is not really good at taking a burst of more than three pictures, it just can't do it. Good to know, maybe it makes me better. Panning is hard and the frustration of having your camera fail at you and missing a great shot is awful.
^^ FFS S14 it's 50 hours of voluntary work for free, not free work for your lifetime.
Love the panic.
I think it would be good for your young people. Over here we got "work training" in schools, instead of school you go to some place to work for a week. I think it was fun, you got to know new things and stuff, and got some more perspective on life. No heavy works of course, more like something young people do as summer jobs.
And of course, we also have compulsory military service. You do you get paid. About 5 euros per day, and get free food, clothes and shelter, but it's still more like free work for minimum of 4320 hours. But of course, you do learn more than just kill your opponents and get even more perspective how things, people and world works, and more likely, how stuff doesn't.
Interesting how things are different, if your country asks you for something it's 1984 omfg gtfo all over the place.
Hah...Brawn doesn't really have the resources like Mclaren after after Honda quit. Didn't they just sack plenty of their working staff? I honestly can't see them going on dominating the field for more than first half of the season, the big guys will catch up soon with sheer manpower. If not this season, the next.
Lewis making a move and changing team is probably pure bs. The source is more than questionable for starters. Plus, I really doubt Lewis is sort of man who jumps ship at the first trouble. Hard years will make him more hardworking, hungry, and more humble and more deserving champion - the underdog everyone loves (Brawn GP at the moment).
