They could probably be a little bit more creative with the front cover but hey, it's F1 so I'll buy it regardless.

I hope for next gen visuals this time round. There is a clear pedigree downgrade from the visual potency of DiRT to the visuals found in last years F1. Running of the same engines makes this desparity inexcusable, hopefully that's rectified this time round.

The driving looks amazing. Will buy this one for sure! They should be making a replica formula 1 steering wheel for this game looking like the one in the video

Maybe because Formula One has 24 cars at the same track that all need AI and physics calculations? Maybe because Formula One has dynamic weather and a track that has to remeber the amount of rubber and water laid down on specific places?

I only hope for a 'real' AI throughout the whole race instead of the system they used last year where slow cars were the fasted of the field because they had to make up time they lost earlier. This spiced up with a better damage model and improved physics will make it a winner for me :)

What's up?

    Tiz If Joe Staten is working on H6, then they have a lot less to worry about as he can steer Halo's cinematic direction very well. (19 minutes ago)

    Tiz @amerakindesi: I think the planets are aligning quite nicely for Halo 6. They don't have to worry so much about multiplayer save for map design. Now they can focus efforts on the campaign. (23 minutes ago)

    aphex187 Best Xmas game evah! :D [url] (1 Hour ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo definitely relies more on individual skill, because every one is essentially the same character. halo is a still a great idea of a game. i hope they improve on "halo" for 6 (1 Hour ago)

    docLEXfisti Snatcher was awesome, played it on the European Mega CD (3 Hours ago)

    droezelke @Moonwalker: I agree. Other than the Metal Gear series, he didn't really present something as good. And I thought MGS5 was ultra boring (4 Hours ago)

    nostradamus never played snatcher, but policenauts has a awesome scenario. (4 Hours ago)
