Goddamn piece-of-shit “realistic” game keeps re-enabling traction control. No wonder I find my Ferrari easy to drive.
Ta-dah, all gold on beginner and amateur series in GT5, all assists off (but with overpowered cars on some of the races, obviously).
Imagine a restaurant where you wait for your table in a dirty room. The hostess is rude to you, and the process of ordering food or even getting a reservation is confusing. You’re having a bad experience well before you’re eating, and now the chef is going to have to work much harder to satisfy a grumpy customer. Like all metaphors, this is imperfect, but the lesson remains: a great game is a great experience, and the interface is a large part of creating that experience.
I was very impressed by Forza 3’s menu system when it came out, by how streamlined it had become (when the previous game was a bit cumbersome). In fact, Forza 3 is a better game in a lot of ways, and its developers must be suicidal when they compare it to Gran Turismo 5 and realize that what is really holding them back is that there is no remotely decent wheel for the Xbox 360.
And now, instead of a good wheel, they have to support Kinect for their next version. Argh.
While it is unusual for deaths to occur during sanctioned races, there are many accidents and several deaths each year during public sessions. It is common for the track to be closed several times a day for cleanup, repair, and medical intervention. While track management does not publish any official figures, several regular visitors to the track have used police reports to estimate the number of fatalities at somewhere between 3 and 12 in a full year.
Emphasis mine. Niiice. (No wonder, when you see the track.)
But it’s 250€ and they have the worst reputation as for reliability.
My hands are sweaty and cramping just watching this.
Damn good thing I don’t have a PC, because I’d be emptying my bank account on the seasonal Steam sales.
Not what I expected.
Well, since my steering wheel isn’t here yet, I’m gonna download the Starcraft 2 demo. That’ll learn them.
Watching a video of Uncharted 3 gameplay, I just don’t understand why they’re sticking with the bullet sponges. Does anyone ever enjoy that?
