Has anyone tried those Seasonal Time Trial events? I did the second one, where everyone chose the RX8 on Rome. I'm 5 seconds late, is it my problem, or the people are not running it stock? And the combo is :vomit: Funny how this game can vary so much depending on car/track/tires combo.. one time it's NFS Pursuit, the other it's an awesome sim...
I played Forza 3 for the first time about 2 months ago while on holiday with some family, and on AI pace it wins so handily it is embarrassing. On medium level they are quicker than GT5 AI and on slow are still smoother drivers(none of the multi braking zone, braking on apex crap, the GT5 AI does). On hard I had a very hard time winning with the controller, with the wheel it got easier but was still a really fun time(and actually the most competitive AI on any console game I've played), I actually had to try really hard when out-braking them and if I did get alongside enough they tryed to hold on around the outside.
Also just in general racing with them I could be right behind them and brake at my normal spot keep with them through the corner and do a whole lap, keeping a good pace but not go past, in GT5 I would have rear ended him or had to evade him at every corner due to the really really early braking.
GT5 is more fun for some reason but on:
Tuning(the sheer amount of stuff you can do)
Setup(same as above)
Car count of cars you actually WANT to drive(MORE Ferraris, Lambos, Porsche, MANY race cars in the form of V8 Supercars, LMP1, LMP2, GT1, GT2 cars and LESS prius, samba bus, station wagons etc)
AI(faster faster faster)
Customization(Immense number of colours, wheels. Ability to paint any car anyway you want, with stickers and paint and and and. Artsy people must love it.
Events(SO MANY, in groups of power, class, make, real life classes, Drag races, point to point races)
It is so beaten by Forza 3 its ridiculous esp considering it took so long to make in comparison.
I've had cosmetic damage whilst racing before now though
They need to fix leaderboards so driving aids are on a different leaderboard all together. I don't wanna see what the fastest person can do with all assists on ffs.... This what I HOPED PD wouldn't do, the leaderboards will be just as retarded as the Forza ones........
I don't often laugh out loud at stuff on the internet, but that really cracked me up.
I find it amazing how they took 6 years to deliver a half-finished product and then hastily try to fix it up within a matter of weeks. What, please tell me what, have they been doing?!?
At least for me however these patches are reinforcing the completely wrong behaviour. I could buy the game right now, grind the hell out of ugly cars and illogical design decisions or hold out on the game, wait for the most anoying things to be patched out and then buy the game at a reduced price.
I think they said originally they had planned to release the game about 8 months after the release of Prologue, but Sony required a number of shitty targets for PD to hit with the full game, which meant they had to take longer in optimising it and pretty much making it much worse than it could have been. I can't remember exactly what they were, or if I am talking any kind of sense. I'm sure I remember reading it on GTPlanet though. I wish Sony would just let them get on with it and decide what is best for the game rather than what is best for their bloody company. :hbomb:
E: Glad to have made you chuckle without the aid of slapstick. Got enough bruises thank you very much
