GC: F1 2010 in Quebec

GC: F1 2010 in Quebec

Let's continue our F1 2010 media frenzy, and this time, we are going to Montreal for one lap in cockpit view. You will see how hard it is to drive at full speed when you barely see the road and you don't know the track by heart.

I hope they have endurance races and you have to watch tyre wear and stuff, even If I only do that a handful of times, it's a whole different game then. I think the said they will be doing that my memory fails me... it would be very cool if they have some of the older F1 cars before all the regulation came in, the really ridiculous fast and hard to handle cars of old with manual gears -_-

Yeah, it's really hard. I don't know the track also. I know it, but I don't like it so I never try to really know it. Also, the camera doesn't allow much perception, you really gotta know the track and the braking spots when trying to drive with that camera.

Great job as always...you should've tinkered a bit more with the menus(in-race and the pits) though. It's always interesting to see the the changes you can make to the car during a race.

P.S.- This season's tracks are not the best, I'm afraid I'm gonna have to learn a lot of new tracks with this game(Valencia - new one, Singapore, Korea, Malaysia, Hungary, Abu Dhabi, etc....). They need to bring back some mythical races in Europe.

Oh also that aerial? doodad in the centre could get really irritating, I know it's authentic but still it would look less stupid on the drivers head. Gonna really benefit from a tripple head screen setup with this :-)

Is that really the visibility that F1 drivers have? Just higher the head a bit and maybe I could actually see the track.

Not having driving a F1 car, I couldn't possibly tell if the height is accurate, but from these shots(below) it looks pretty low.

Note that some cars vary the nose type so this Mercedes has those very high "arches"(same as the Red Bull) on the sides of the nose.

Now some videos that showed what I wanted to see from gameplay:

Expert difficulty and no assists(all off)

Messing with the setups before the race

Multiplayer ?

Looking really cool, the driving with assists off looks to be a little chalenging, not hardcore simulation but I wouldn't have expected that from Codemasters(I wished it though LOL).

If I buy this game I'll be buying a license, not the crappy gameplay.

I like this view but TV cockpit is also nice.

About the game


What's up?

    Sdarts The Witcher games - and books - aren't perfect, but nothing is. For what they are and what they have accomplished, I thank both the author and the developers from the bottom of my heart. (8 minutes ago)

    Sdarts And it ran for years under the radar of almost everyone before the anime, then it suddenly became an enourmous worldwide success. In a way, the same happened with The Witcher books and the games. (10 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Megido: Just because certain works aren't very popular doesn't mean that they aren't great. Take for example Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), the manga is even better than the anime. (10 minutes ago)

    Sdarts @GriftGFX: English. And also listened to them in English. Same with Game of Thrones' books. (11 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Although the games' writing isn't at the same level as the books', it's still far, far, far vastly better than 99% of the writing in games, movies, TV shows and books. CD Projekt RED did an epic job. (12 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX @Sdarts: Cool.. what language did you read them in? (12 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @GriftGFX: From someone who read and even listened to all The Witcher books before playing the games. The books are on par with The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and Harry Potter books imho. (12 minutes ago)
