  1. Just popped by to pimp the fact that this also has a pretty awesome Photo Mode I also get the initial concerns over the rubber banding but once you get use to it its not as unfair as it first seems. I actually relish the challenge the difficulty levels offers and atleast its not a racer where you can be ahead at the first turn and remain there for the duration of the race. For me its the most fun I've had with a racer in a long time.
  2. Apologies in advance for a bit of a self-indulgent post but just wanted to pop by and say a big thanks to Rllmuk. I was given some great news on Friday when I was inducted into the Codemasters Racing Ahead program as one of their first Virtual Photography Content Creators. The news is still sinking in but I genuinely don't think this would have happened if it weren't for all of the support and encouragement the Rllmuk community showed for my posts when I first started dabbling in Virtual Photography a number of years ago, which in turn led to amazing opportunities being involved with the likes of Driveclub and Onrush, thanks to Rushy! Realise I don't post much here any more (with most of my VP activity now taking place on Twitter) but just wanted to say thanks to all, and will keep you posted on where this latest VP journey takes me.
  3. It's from Bound. Has one of the most versatile photomodes out there. You can create some amazing effects with it. Not posted on here in a while, but recently finished the first Mass Effect and took advantage of the photomode in the Legendary Edition.

    Oculus Quest

    Think its to do with it not running properly in VR if you have the PC window maximised. Ive got it running on Quest 2 via Virtual Desktop fine after a bit of initial faffing about. You also need to ensure that the "Keep Audio In Background" option is enabled in the in-game Audio settings.
  5. I get easily overwhelmed when faced with new maps. So I've found best approach for me is to turn off mini map, then play though one of the set Mission Stories. This gives a good initial feel for each map ready for a deeper dive later on. I also just play through each map once in set order first, to experience the story and then revisit places afterwards. Completed Dubai and Dartmoor last night. Dartmoor is an instant classic and already one of my favourites of the series.
  6. Sound advice.. Turns out I was actually lvl 40, so spent last night levelling up. Completed the Arena, got most of my team up to lvl 46 (with job levels somewhere in the 20's).. then got sidetracked as usual into Cinema & Hostess Club visits to try and max out the Bond levels of remaining party members. The main plus point, even though I spent the night essentially grinding I still had fun doing it, which is rare for an RPG. Will see how the boss fight goes this evening.
  7. This post has taken the wind out my sails a bit.. Unlocked the Arena last night, got to floor 12 without any issues so figured I was good to take on Omi HQ this evening. Seeing as Im only lvl 30'ish I may need to rethink my plans! As others have said though the game is such a joy to play and I'm absolutely loving all of the new characters. Totally addicted.
  8. Finished my first playthrough on New Years Eve. Here are a few of my favourite shots taken so far:

  10. Despite 2020 being an absolute shitshow it did provide me with one of the best years of gaming I can remember. From a completion perspective I also finished way more than during a "normal" year. This was thanks in no small part to a new years resolution I somehow stuck with all year, involving reducing backlog and only ever having a single "big" title on the go alongside an indie game at the same time. Worked an absolute treat and will be doing exactly the same during 2021. Favourite Game Released in 2020: Final Fantasy VII Remake Favourite Game Not Released in 2020: Witcher 3 Full completion list as follows:
  11. Cheers man.. can see why this isn't for everyone but I'm loving it. Hope to group up with a few of you again on NFS once the new hardware next gen buzz dies down a bit.
  12. Oh god I knew mentioning Driveclub and Onrush would cause issues. Their influence on Dirt5 is undeniable no matter how much you may hate those titles. As for Driveclub being for hardcore racers... no comment.
  13. I'm doing similar and bouncing between the two.. seem to compliment each other quite well. Alongside Pacer its been a great month for Racers.
  14. So how are folks finding this? Personally I'm loving it. The Driveclub and Onrush influences ooze through the games veins, all for the better I might add. My only issue is that Im having to hold off progressing the career too far ahead of my PS5's arrival, given I'll have to start from scratch again. Still atleast there is the photomode to keep me entertained in the meantime.
  15. Oh god how I've missed Rllmuk
  16. Well I'm "finally" on it, and its glorious. Naturally one of the first things I did is try to recreate one of my first ever NFS shots on the 360.
  17. My copy shipped Wednesday and still hasn't arrived. Bloody typical
  18. I'm so there! Some of my fondest online memories
  19. Still on Act I but making progress
  20. Fuuuck! Had a feeling that might happen. Oh well only a few hours wasted. Cheers for the heads up, should speed progress up a bit.
  21. I'm still messing around in Act I.. lets just say progress is slow. I've sadly fallen into the Far Cry trap of having to remove the fog from every section of the map before moving on. ..oh and photomode certainly isn't helping either:
  22. Last game to feel this therapeutic to play has to be Breath of the Wild. Like others I just find myself totally ignoring the questline and embarking on my own Samurai pilgrimage across the continent, going wherever the wind (or Birds & Foxes) takes me! It's an utter joy.
