Grid Autosport

Well, we’ve had Grid Autosport for a week or two now, personally I’m loving it!
Time trial mode has been getting a solid workout with some friendly rivalry between myself and Parts as we don’t have to be online at the same time to compete.
We’ve set times on most tracks in the classic Mini’s and now the V8 Supercars, with Bathurst the obvious focus for domination.
Fastest laps are added to the “Global Leaderboard” so you can tell how your holding up against other drivers from around the world!

I was until earlier today just .002 seconds behind Parts, but have now moved up to claim the world’s 21st fastest lap time around Mt Panorama in the V8′s.
I also currently hold 5th place on Jarama GP, 7th on Mont Trembland, 8th on Autosport Raceway and 12th on Brands Hatch GP.
None of this of course means anything if I can’t race consistently on gaming night – which, all going well should be on September 26.

ProjectCarsAnother upcoming racing title to watch out for is Project Cars!
Slated for release on November 20, 2014.

“Project CARS is the most authentic, beautiful, intense, and technically-advanced racing game on the planet.

“Featuring world-class graphics and handling, a ground-breaking dynamic time of day & weather system, and deep tuning & pit stop functionality, Project CARS leaves the competition behind in the dust.”

15/8 … So …

Is there anybody out there?
Is anybody really keen or just ho hum?
Has a certain headlight been fixed yet?
Will there be a huge throng of keen gamers flocking to the Edge,
Or should I just call it now – Cancelled.

It’s been a long week, I’m ready to nod off now.
Thoughts?

War Thunder – FREE TO PLAY!

I’ve never seen anything like this – must watch FULL SCREEN – and prepare to catch your jaw as it falls to the floor …

 

Arcade has a simplified flight model and unlimited ammo, and takes place in fantasy zones with exaggerated canyons and mountains with holes to fly through. Realistic has the full sim flight model, but doesn’t require full manual controls (fuel mix, radiator and manifold settings, trim etc), and is set in loosely historical scenarios with semi-accurate maps. While Full Sim forces cockpit view, manual flight controls and removes the player tags that make identifying enemies easy in the other modes.
