F1 2016 review

RageBoy

2 years ago

There are still faults to be found. The AI sometimes makes some funky calls - with two laps to go of one race and running in second place well clear of any competitors I was told switching over to a third tyre compound would be the optimum strategy at that point, an offer I politely declined
I dunno, that sounds kind of similar to some of the Ferrari pit wall decisions this season.

Looks like it has a smoother frame rate than the version on my 4S after I installed iOS7 - which is awesome and frightening at the same time.

Tragically, today's GOOGLE Doodle game is probably the best Doctor Who game in a long time.

Although I do remember playing a mod of Doom once where the imps had been replaced by Daleks - which scared the bejesus out of me :/

300 jobs lost as HMV quits Republic of Ireland

RageBoy

@myms1ps3 yeah, I'd forgot about Argos. They can be hit and miss with new releases but tend to peg their prices with the UK stores, which means they can be competitive.

And kudos for the shout for Rage - great little shop!

Tesco in Dublin still have PS2 games on the shelf for €40 plus which shows a complete lack of interest and/or understanding of games.

GameStop were on average €10 more than HMV for a new release. As are Smyths (Toy Store). These are the only two places in the city centre that I can think where you can get games.

Irish Internet gaming retailers are generally independent with great customer service but invariably charge more than amazon.

Sadly then, I will only use Amazon from now on probably - since I have a UK bank account still, the small VAT difference (20% compared to 23%) is the only markup I will pay.

I bought it in a whim, having read some other players exploits on the forums. I love it, what it misses from the PC version it makes up for in accessibility.

I only have one friend who plays it regularly so need to find a few more players.

In fact the only bad thing I have to say about it is that my pet wolf, Wolfie, went missing last night :/

I'm excited by this but the whole project is ruined for me at the moment by idiots buying them for £100+ on eBay. Kinda defeats the whole idea of a cheap computer.

In my case, it's like giving a four year some paint and an easel and expecting them to draw a masterpiece.

I have a feeling most videos will end up as surreal. Anyway, here's my first creation, called cat nip:

I just went to download Papa Sangre and noticed it's Headphones only. I'm guessing that the ability to hear both channels is pretty vital then.

I'm completely deaf in my left ear and I think this is the first video game that my 'disability' (in quotes because I feel a fraud calling it this) will have prevented me playing.

Shame, as it sounds really interesting :/

RTE make one of the best programs I've ever seen - Reeling in the Years. A 30 minute montage of news clips and music from a given decade. Starts from 1969 and the new series is up to 2005 I think.

"Also also, while we're here, why does the 3DS have its own category in the main nav bar of the site when it's not even out yet whilst the fastest growing mobile platform - the iPhone - is under the "more" category. Doesn't make sense to me."

It always makes me smile that one of my most visited pages on the EG Forum - the iPod game/app review thread - is listed with the subheading of non-gaming.

No F1 2010 demo, says Codemasters

Ideally I like the handling from Forza 3 with the depth of F1. And keep the rewind button but limit its use-it's too tempting to use otherwise. Oh and have random but rare mechanical failures.

I really want this but as much as I enjoyed Grid, the handling* of the cars never felt quite right.

Indeed, I found it got worse as the cars got faster-which doesn't bode well for an F1 game.

Can't you watch the Grand Prix qualifying with the iPlayer? But being able to watch the free practice sessions and F1 Forum would be nice.

Not that it matters to me since iPlayer doesn't work in Dublin :(

I have one and it compliments rather than replaces my existing gaming setup.

I don't see touch screen gaming as dead in the water though-obviously it suits some genres more than others but there are some great games available.

The iPlayer can only be used for radio in ROI - TV programs aren't available. This is direct from the BBC website anyway. Would be great if TV programs are available from the PS3.

Just tried iPlayer on my PS3 and it still doesn't let me watch TV Programmes - i get a message saying that it is available in UK only. This is from Dublin anyway. Oh well
