To be honest it sounds a lot like they're looking for reasons not to like it. Every single review says it does what the original did but without the annoying or broken bits. Then again, to already have played 3 or 4 days of a game that's been out for only 2 at the most sounds like they're missing out due to what's been ripped

My pre-ordered copy has been delivered. So don't waste your time sending me any kind of game invites for the next couple of weeks

Until the grass and mud are modelled better it's sort of pointless. Now grass is just reduced friction, but it'd really benefit from the effect of digging into the dirt underneath. Autocross would benefit from it too.

I prefer the 4th-gen one with the aggressive-styled headlights and better weight distribution. I gather that none of the Preludes are as comfortable as the Civics or Accords of the same age. But I much prefer the look of the Prelude.

Pretty sure that's the whole point of the votes. They want to keep the community happy. Obviously they've got the licenses for 120 cars but they want people to buy the pack so the more cars in there people actually WANT, the more likely those people are to stump up some green

I'm glad to see more American classics making it onto the list - I love them. They might be boats, but they have style. I'd have loved a 57 Chevy Bel Air or Ford Fairlane as well though, I'd own one IRL in a second.

Voted for the Capri since my stepdad used to own one, and the Starion because of the XRG Wish the Mazda Lantis was on there too though; it's been in a couple of the Gran Turismo games.

As long as it's not both. Because you'd have no hope then

I've got something like 380ptz so far, but I've no idea what I'm saving them for. At first I thought I'd go for the PS3 version of Rock Band, but I've gone off that idea now. If there's a laptop or something with a decent graphics card I might go for that.

But I'm starting to think that this new system is going to involve bidding for items rather than buying them. That way the company can get away with having less in stock and more players getting rid of loads of pointz. I hate sites that do that.

Maybe my problem with the quick getaways is that I'm still not quite used to changing gear in the diesel and quite often get a big notchy shudder when it doesn't go right But while I do love that torquey I-can't-move-my-neck feeling, I don't reckon it's as fast from a start as the 323 was. Could be the extra weight of the derv engine, but I'd have thought the 25 or so horses difference would make up for that.

There's plenty of kits available for remapping my engine, but I've never seen the point. It's a diesel. The throttle response is delayed compared to a petrol engine, and I bought it to save money on fuel over the thousands of miles I do per year (which is set to increase if I can get this new job). I didn't buy it to be a performance machine, and if I'd wanted a performance traffic light drag racer I certainly wouldn't have bought a diesel

Although an R8 on the other hand...

Quote from danowat :A spreadsheet?, you do suprise me Dajmin!!!!

Yeah, who'd have thunk it? Turns out I quite like spreadsheets It was the only way I could keep track of which planets I'd scanned for minerals/artifacts, which I'd landed on, the decisions I'd made on the missions, etc.

I'm with you on the "lite" inventory system. The old one was horrible and it was nearly impossible to leave your pockets empty enough that you didn't have to keep clearing it out, but I'm not sure how the new system will work. I guess time will tell.

I said from the start that the Mako was pointless. Who would use a wheeled vehicle to explore uncharted planets? Something that flies would be much more sensible

I'm sort of wondering what glass "should" look like anyway. I always thought it should be pretty transparent, otherwise you'd be as well using wood. I can't say I've ever really paid much attention to what glass looks like.

As for the rest of the argument, I don't care. If you want to shout abuse at each other, please create a new thread or, even better, a new forum where such a thread won't get you banned and I don't have to look at it. I'd love to ignore forum mongs, but the problem is you end up only catching the odd comment about it and that's even worse. Shutting up and actually physically ignoring them is much better.

Of course the mature thing to do is not respond, but you can't have anyone have the last word on the innertubes, can you? The last word makes your penis bigger.

I just completed the campaign with the character I want to port to ME2 and I'll be picking this up on day one. I absolutely love the original. Alright, the Mako control is rubbish and the non-mission planets are a little dull, but that doesn't really take away from the epic story and the level of depth you can uncover if you enjoy poking around as much as I do. It took until my 3rd playthrough (with a spreadsheet to track my progress) before I got the Completionist achievement and I think that's pretty impressive.

Can't wait to pick up the sequel.

But that would totally change the cars that they're based on. I've not seen Citroen facelift a 2003 Saxo, it looks the same now as it did back then. A small boxy hothatch. Like the XFG. The Mitsubishi Starion hasn't been updated since 1990 so it looks the same now as it did 15 years ago - a boxy coupe. Like the XRG.
Just because they're not real cars doesn't mean they aren't of a particular time period. Would you be happier if the exact model names were like 1993 XFG? I didn't think it needed pointed out, but plenty of people seem to somehow think they're rolling off imaginary factory lines as they are.

Any new cars being added with features from the last few years should maybe have more modern lines to reflect that, but I don't see Seat taking my car back from me and replacing it with the new shape Leon just because it's no longer current

Please, that one isn't an image that describes the song it's just Google images in place of the actual words

Very similar to Mazda's MX-3. I prefer the MX-3 front but the Sera rear. And of course the MX-3 had the smallest ever displacement V6

I think I finally worked out a way to set up my equipment so I can start recording at home. Maybe. It should work, but I don't know exactly how well

I really like the new VW Bug. I can't call it a Beetle because it's so vastly different from the original, so I call it by the American name to differentiate I'd love to have one.

But I think my biggest sin is liking the Chrysler PT Cruiser. Nobody else I know can stand them but I love how they look like a reinvention of 30s and 40s hot rods. The only downside I can see is they're FWD. My girlfriend has expressly banned me from ever even thinking about owning one.

I think it would be better if it stayed up for a few seconds and then got placed somewhere eout of the way. It could be slotted in around the laptime clock or under the position/lap number text. I wouldn't even mind if it flashed to attract your attention or if it was in brightly-coloured text. But having it slapped across the screen in big letters all the time is just annoying.

And as far as driving slower goes, that's a pointless argument. Nobody MEANS to get a penalty, and thinking "I should've driven slower" after the fact is useless and doesn't help the issue of the message at all.
