  1. That’s cool, I really enjoyed NG+ on the first game as by that point I just played straight through the Story Missions with none of the filler. Keeping this one for Christmas and really looking forward to it.
  2. Does a New Game+/Ultimate difficulty mode unlock when you complete it?
  3. That’s a great price but it’s all a bit underhand the way you could end up paying far more for the same content. @davejm look forward to hearing your impressions.
  4. My post from the PS5 thread, didn’t know this existed. For me WRC has more of the Colin McRae feel than Dirt Rally, I think it’s a combination of the track design, the fact that it plays amazingly well with the controller and is a bit less brutal than DR. Portugal, Finland and Sweden are my favourite locations so far, Sweden on the snow flows beautifully. Monte Carlo is brutal but after trashing my car and having to limp home it demonstrated the Dualsense well, my right trigger became really stiff and ratchety making it more difficult to accelerate and the left trigger went soft as
  5. I think iRacing suffers a lot with that too, American favoured events like oval racing are popular but some of the other series not so much. I wish ACC would build something a bit more structured around the Competition servers but I think they’re leaving that to 3rd parties. There is something Race Department set up that @davejm has tried out and also something by David Perel that I kept meaning to try out.
  6. That’s a shame, hopefully it’s a good implementation of Steam VR!
  7. I’m assuming it runs pretty well on a PS5, anyone tried it? And how is it with the dualsense (last gen mode)?
  8. It is, I might have to give it another try, I think you can test drive cars.
  9. Astro is a 9 for me, yes because it’s free but also because as an experience with a new machine it’s right up there with Wii Sports. Took me 9 or 10 glorious hours to platinum and complete, taking in all the game references and memorabilia. I’m just praying for a Christmas Nights style unlock on Christmas Day . Sackboy sounds like a slow burner until you get into it but 6 is surprisingly low. I think they’ve had too much bah humbug juice this month.
  10. Do you mean it’s £66 if you buy straight off but £54 if you buy vRP first? How many vRP is that?
  11. I don’t understand RR pricing, if I log in to the RR site through steam the price drops to £61.25 which I thought was a discount for existing content but then I add to basket and it drops further to £50.23, so perhaps that’s the discount for ADAC I previously bought but it didn’t cost that much in the first place. That price is equivalent of 6867 vRP but it looks as though you can only buy vRP in game, ffs. To answer @SharkyOB original question, it does look like a good price though, 94% discount from 109,892 vRP. Maybe I’ll give RR another try if MP is improving but I’m also tempted
  12. I think multi-player is pretty dead on RaceRoom, I could be wrong though. There also used to be different levels of physics applied to different cars which always put me off (all can be tried for free though???). I think the general rule is buy via the website rather than in game/Steam but to also buy their currency (vRP) first, presumably because the conversion rate is better? 7500vRP seems like a good price after a quick google. If you buy the Premium Pack do you continue to receive content or is it only up to the point you buy it?
  13. For me WRC has more of the Colin McRae feel than Dirt Rally, I think it’s a combination of the track design, the fact that it plays amazingly well with the controller and is a bit less brutal than DR. Portugal, Finland and Sweden are my favourite locations so far, Sweden on the snow flows beautifully. Monte Carlo is brutal but after trashing my car and having to limp home it demonstrated the Dualsense well, my right trigger became really stiff and ratchety making it more difficult to accelerate and the left trigger went soft as if the brake pedal was going to the floor. It’s a bit
  14. Yep you’d have thought they’d have done this to the games going into the PS Plus Collection. Bit of a shame, I wonder if it was a bit of a last minute thing to counter GamePass a bit.
  15. In terms of VR (2nd edition or whatever it’s called) what are the issues with the breakout box and PS5, is it just 120fps or does it affect 4K/HDR too?
  16. With Astro Bot can you save mid-level (other than via rest mode) otherwise isn’t launching a level just the same as launching your save? Granted it’s not Quick Resume but I find rest mode is adequate for that. What I’d like to be able to do is create/pin my own cards e.g. WRC 9 has a card for the weekly challenge but not the daily so I’d like to create a shortcut for that.
  17. Yep fair point, just seems like an unnecessary restriction/complication that only harms multi-player in an already small fragmented player base. It’s very difficult, creating DLC tends to split the already small player base further and therefore harming the product but is essential for something like ACC. I wonder how the Automobilista 2 approach of a high cost one-off payment that basically gets you everything (I think) has worked out and what % of players went for that?
  18. Hmm, I feel putting tyre model updates into DLC is a bit of a change, I thought Kunos always tried to keep the base game the same and add tracks & cars as DLC.
  19. I did wonder if that was an effect for Ford heated windscreens (they have wire mesh in screen), does it happen on all cars, I tend to use bonnet cam? I particularly like the surface changes, really well done. I’ll send out a few Friend Requests to the people on here I’ve seen mention WRC 9, will be good to get some people on friends leaderboards.
  20. Feels like they’re fragmenting the multi-player base even further which I’m not sure is a good idea.
