Thread Since getting a new WipEout game is unlikely, which was, in your opinion, the best WipEout game released?
My real answer is HD/Fury but WipEout Pure should be up there. If anything HD and Fury are updates of it and Pulse. Pure especially massively showed off the PSP and it got a tonne of free DLC. Fantastic game. I also love 2097, 3 and 3SE so this is a tough poll to vote in. I guess 2097 is the most influential?

Thread PS5 and Xbox Series speculation |OT12| - Aw hell, Transistor's running this again?
I guess the difference between MS and Sony right now is that Sony has FFVII remake, Last of Us 2 and Ghost of Tsushima coming up over the next few months. MS has Ori next week and then not much else till next gen? Just talking about exclusives, obviously there are multiplatform games for both. Looking at that it is understandable to see the two different approaches.

Hey there, so I have a bit of a conundrum... When the Lite came out I sold my switch and got a lite as I much preferred the shape and size of it for playing handheld, this is how I mostly played it. However I am very interested in getting ring fit adventure... Should I go back the other way and sell my Lite asnd buy a new (better battery at least) Switch? Is it worth it?

I have to be honest not many of the recent shows have been hitting for me, the last one I genuinely enjoyed was 13 Deadly Sims. I honestly would really enjoy them just playing the games they enjoy regardless of when they came out, for example Brad playing more Doom has been good as he actually wants to be doing it. Unprofessional Fridays has always been my favourite show but the last few months other than Business Dave killing it has been pretty tough to stay awake for. I like Ben but he just needs to not make a joke about everything that comes up.

Thread Why is SSD in PS5 made to look like a game changer? PC’s have had it for decade and it hasn’t made that much difference?
When you know there is definitely an SSD you can design the game, and the layout of data, with that in mind. Also going from an HDD to SSD in a PC was huge, especially for the OS. Also having the bandwidth to then use that transfer speed will be important.

The PS2 game, Fusion was the most like F-Zero and it was by far the worst. I don't think the PS1 games were like F-Zero though. Also I wouldn't recommend people go back to the original. However I think that 2097 and Wip3out are still fun games now. Pure was an amazing launch game, Pulse was ok but then WipEout HD was for me the amazing high point. Everything after that has been pretty much at that level, especially once 2048 got a nerw lease of life in the Omega Collection. Then you have the VR mode...

The thing is GT4 was amazing as well, especially for those more interested in the motorsport aspect. GT3 was always more open for the less "hardcore" as much as I hate that term. I think it can be tough to go back to that though, not because of anything to do with games but more about how people feel about cars.

Thread Mario Kart 8 still remains the King of Kart racers 5 years after release
Mario Kart 8 is fantastic but I have to say after playing CTR last night it has a franticness (I don't think that word exists but whatever) and a much more technical drifting model that makes it a lot of fun. I have been really enjoying it and the single player is definitely better than what MK8 has to offer. Both are great in different ways. MK8 is definitely the easier and more accessible option, I was really struggling with CTR for the first three races or so and then all of a sudden it clicked and became very satisfying.

It's near future in a different world where they had to build superweapon a to kill an asteroid. After that they turned the superweapons on each other! Also Jet Fighters are the equivalent of a ford focus, they are all over the place. You have different mission types, be it on your own, with wingmen against elite squadrons, normal jets or loads of ground units, massive evil bases or huge gunships. the story plays through your radio and through cutscenes. The storys are always fun and silly but the one thing the Ace Combat games do is they give you a sense of exhilaration and a feeling that you matter in the world, no other game builds into a crescendo the way this series does for me. The music is also top notch and Strangereal, the world is just crazy. You could do landing and refueling bit it really is an arcade action game, you carry hundreds of missiles and can take a decent amount of damage but it's just all so exhilarating! The pre mission briefings and post mission "replays" are pretty iconic as well

I think the main issues for me would be the bombs spawning underground/not updating their position when picked up. Games not ending when they should. Black screen on loading requiring a restart When entering the gunner seat on tank the gun isn't centred. The bug where ADS isn't working properly on your main gun. The gunner seat on the blenheim being unavailable to squadmates. The issue with spotting when getting a kill. The rest would be balance issues and I imagine those will be adjusted back and forth over the next year!

The only thing I would say is that medics have tools to reduce that distance that the other classes don't have as well as the ability to heal all the time. I feel if I had more range the class would be OP. Honestly I think the SMG updates should be a pretty good improvement as well as the nerf to some specific weapons.... but of course we have to see how it is in practice.

In BF1 there were more than a few "medics" who played at range and topped themselves up and that was it, to be honest I think it really hurt the class, BFV's medic feels a lot better in that regard and to be honest feels like this was the fix for those problems. I did have no issues with the class in earlier games though.

Also the game has got a tonne of free content and updates, and even with these microtransactions all the content is free and as easy to get now as beforehand.

Especially weird considering an Italian won the round at the Nurburgring... Asking here as well, anyone got any experience with using the Fanatec CSL Elite with GT Sport? Considering a change from the G29.

Hey, I may have to pull out entirely, have had a few new additions to the family via brother and sister, one of which is very premature so I don't have the time free at the weekends as I will be travelling a good bit, so good news that I am an uncle but not good in that I don't have time to race :( I can share the livery I made for the group 3 merc so whoever takes over from me can have it to use. Uhh after re reading that I want to make it clear that my brother and sister have individually had kids with their respective partners...

Will see, I tested the actual settings and did a 1.54.3 so that was half a second quicker than I qualified last night. I had 2 laps of fuel left at the end so reckon I can run at 4 if I was to do the same strategy. To be honest if we do a rerun I think I will thrown on softs and do 5 lap stints.

In Group 3 I used mediums until the last three minutes and then pitted and threw on supersofts for the lap that put me on pole. Am ok with people going slow as long as they pay attention to the road around them.

That is the way it has been since GT PSP in regards to weight reduction, I think maybe the wording has confused some people. I do know that I would much rather lose 60 kilos than gain 18 odd horsepower so am happy to have been wrong :P

You slid and I knocked you straight then you slid again and I had nowhere to go! Umm does the weight not relate to the overall weight of the car, eg if 100% = 100kg 105% = 105kg? Am pretty sure that is how it is so my car was actually overweight for the race, am happy to have my points taken off regardless if that race counts, or make sure it is correct the next time. Yeah if you look at the video here you can see as he reduces the weight reduction number the weight of the vehicle goes down, so while I was 4% up on power I was also 5% up on weight :/

Just had a really fun Sport race, the replay of myself and the winner looks like it could be a real race! Was quicker but just not quick enough to get alongside... In regards to other classes I would love to see DTM and SuperGT back in, both those classes run to broadly the same rules now so would be a great group of cars. I would like to see some GTE cars as well. Together these would bridge the gap between Group 3 and 1.

So that is a Group 3 road car, which harks back to homolgation specials. These are road cars that were specially built to racing regulations so a manufacturer could race in that series. In GT Sport there are some road editions of these, namely some Group 3 and Group B cars. These have some of the extra aero parts etc and more performance but aren't actually Group 3/B cars.

I agree there can be too many dives but there are also far too many issues of people just turning in and causing contact, sometimes you have to accept you are being passed. Also the one move rule is not the case for all race series, in NASCAR for example if you try that you are just going to get dumped off at the next corner.

I would honestly have no trepidation licking and sending a pass into that corner, it's the first braking point after the longest straight on the track, it's THE passing point on the track if anything, especially with a bit of a slipstream. Contact still sucks for those involved of course. I also recommend the radar as well when not racing with fuel use on, helps with those moments when you aren't sure where people are, as Bradley said the lack of peripheral vision doesn't help either.

Umm, can I get a confirmation of what the next race is? I thought it was the KYM and Honda at Tokyo but I saw some people mention Dragon Trail? Personally I would go with no damage, I don't mind a rolling start either but am also ok with keeping it as it is and going with a standing start. But hey, look at the F1 race at the weekend, even the best can get it very wrong and they don't have to deal with racing over a network!

Man CLR, you are just that wee bit too quick :P Great consistency, well done :) In regards to the incidents here is a replay of the start from my perspective, imo there was nothing malicious just difference of metres in braking distances and I guess reverse grids are always going to throw those up. Just need to be a tiny wee bit more careful:

The problem here is in race two Bradley going off was caused by lag, you can see in both the videos that both myself and experienced different things so in reality it wasn't the fault of either of us, but Bradley was the one who came of worst in the race. Who slows down in that case? I thought I was disadvantaged as I took an impact and lost two spots, Sejanoz thought he was disadvantaged as he thought I hit him into Bradley and Bradley was totally disadvantaged as he was sent off track. If something similar happened again I know I wouldn't be slowing down. Obviously if I make a mistake and knock someone off I will, and have in the past, wait.

So, I need to start paying more attention to things, didn't realise no setups were allowed so any practice I had done was moot. In all honesty the Honda was terrible over kerbs so the last half of the lap was a bit of a nightmare, however the car was still pretty good in the fast corners which ended u saving me in race two.... Qualifying was nice and close think 4 tenths or so covered the top 4 which is always entertaining. Race 1 Made a good start and then you can see what happened haha, Got a run on the inside then I should have lifted but didn't so CLR and I ended up at the back. Had a fun race following him through the pack until I made a mistake again and he left me behind. Fought through to 7th by the end. Race 2 I got a good start from 8th on the grid and managed to get to the lead by the end of lap 1, from there it was relatively uneventful until I made a mistake through the penultimate corner and picked up a penalty. I managed to lose a bit of it which lost me a bit of my lead but the rest I was able to get rid of over the next few laps. The last 8 laps was then just trying my best to old the lead lol, DHC was crazy fast compared to me but I was quick on corner entry on the sweepers so was able to retake the lead a few times at those corners. The second half of the lap was all about getting a decent exit off the corners as DHC was all over me. Very fun race and was delighted to be able to take the Honda to a win.

The key part is to reduce BHP till it shows N400 before going into time trial. Then when in time trial go into settings and turn BOP on. It will then set the weight and power accurately.

Yup. And the corner is just slightly not flat so very easy to run wide especially in a rear wheel drive Beetle. The first corner is something else as well, so hard to judge so very inconsistent. And then we have the fast bit towards the end of the lap, it is juuuuust flat, like 1 time in 5 for me so far.
