    I would say arcade, I'm used to sim like cars so it's hard for me to learn that 80% of the time faster to drift... Like you can watch the car in front, then they will start to drift and it's like they got some sort of speed boost! But it's still fun to play.

    I know eRocker has been at it with Codemasters driving games since Race Driver GRiD at least.
    I personally have been playing Codemasters driving games since Colin McRae Rally 2.0.

    This is where car racing games began for me.

    Played them all, but never excel! TOCA is great as you get a historical "campaign", old F1 cars I do like :)

    Yeah Erocker is really good, Ive played all the CM games, but I'm best with Forza in the top 0.4% but Grid 2 I just cant learn to go fast.

    Till now, I have had ZERO problems. I am going fast.

    I hope you changed WASD to arrow keys.

    Plus all the whining on the interweb about stuttering and what not, NOTHING TILL NOW!. Running at ultra with 16xQCSAA.

    The only point in all of that (whining) I know would be true is the Touge part.

    Need to find more friendly players.
    Public matches have in the AU/NZ region have been not good at all.
    No such thing as fair play.
    Me speaking up only seems to make the little teens go quiet and/or leave shortly after I beat them.

    I mean come on I am pretty sure I don't give off the same vibe as this guy : /

    I see CM have tried to set up the online set list sessions to work with regions.
    Looking at steam profiles, every player has been either Aus or NZ when i have been online in public matches.

    Unfortunately a lot of them were ram the person ahead for the win types.
    T-Bone them into the corner to get yourself around to corner easy.

    When I was invited by das dude to a session I ended up in a lobby full of Indians talking and trying to figure out how to start the game.

    Your ping would have been horrendous. He lives around that part so he is OK. Not you.

    This was the first racing game I played... a lot.


    The next racing game I played a lot of was the original Race Driver TOCA, then a little bit of TOCA 3, then a whole lot of the original GRID.

    I've had some really good MP races with GRID 2 so far but if you happen to drop to the middle-end of the pack you usually have to deal rammers and trolls.

    The guys you were playing with (early AM for me) were pretty friendly, but they sure did like to touch! ...their car to my car a lot. Where'd you go?

    He kept ramming my rear-end out of control the last race I played him. I was having some connection issues though, so I was probably lagging in front of him.

    So I fired up Grid 1, and man, that is still a super fun game. Has a completely different feel since I don't get any advanced control options with the 360 pad in Grid 2.

    Also, ran a test with the flashbacks. Grid 1 would pause the race, and go into the replay mode, where you can use a flashback if you wanted to, or hit the "Y" button to exit the replay and not accidentally waste a flashback:

    Dunno why it's only showing a white box, maybe it hasn't quite finished on youtube's end yet

    It was time to pick up the pizzas....actually was over due time but wantedto race for the whole session since it was fun and hadnt laughed that much in a while.
    Usually during pizzas I watch movies and during the movies I fall a sleep. :D

    Great false thick gravelly Aussie accent BTW.
    It was pretty hard to keep control with all the laughing.
    Especially when i am pretty sure they don't know you are not an Aussie.

    Yes they were actually the best two people I have met up with so far.
    They sounded like they were also out of their teens (based on voice) so a little more mature (assuming).

    Das dude and I came across a really rough Indian driver who won by magically boosting up to use then T-Boning us in the corners.
    Eventually the guy started following us for lobby to lobby to do the same of what he was doing before.
    Das dude came up with a brilliant plan.
    No collisions and full damage.

    After beating him three times he rage quit out of the game.
    As far as I was concerned even though I was first das dude won the event for his brilliant scheme.

    SL65 AMG Black.

    Has to be the most pathetic car I have driven till yet. Damn it is bad!.

    BTW, I dont see any Porsche or Lambo yet. If none, then easy -1 for this game.

    I cant even win it, let alone race it (which wont happen even if I win it).

    First true failure with 2 tries and 3 or 4 restarts in between.
