  1. No worries on the name! Dan was @Baldy/Baldred iirc! I met them at the TDU2 preview which I went to with Diablo and @Camel God that was 10 years ago. Bloody hell.
  2. I'm not Dan I'm Arwyn, though tbf it's been so long since I was active here that i'll let it slide But yeah, I've worked at No More Robots for about 2 years, and I was at Rockstar for 5 years before that . I kinda vanished after TDU2 was.... a bit crap, and then the Crew give me about a month of entertainment then also went in the bin. Fingers crossed for the new TDU though, if nothing else it's on the WRC engine so I unlike TDU2/The Crew it should actually be fun to drive I'm really glad you enjoyed our game! In other news, do you think that a bad CGI trai
  3. Not gonna lie I'm slightly concerned about the fact it's releasing on Switch. It's an amazing console in it's own right, but when my company ported our game descenders (High paced downhill mountain biking game) we had to cut A LOT of corners, and that was just for a Unity game with relatively small procedurally generated stages. An open world game is going to take some biiiiiig cuts to run on that hardware.
  4. Good news! A trailer is dropping tomorrow!
  5. I love that some news pops up and suddenly the gang starts getting back together! welcome back tim!
  6. Oh god I had to spend so long looking up the power of my partners bikes xD 1996 Volvo 940 2.3 Turbo - 210bhp (Lightly modified) 2002 Renault Megané Coupe 1.4 - 100bhp 2003 Honda Pan European - 120bhp 2000 Yamaha Thundercat - 100bhp 1999 Yamaha XJ600N - 60bhp 2008 Yamaha YBR 250 - 20bhp 1977 Suzuki GT 185 - 20bhp So 630bhp all in
  7. I know this is really lame to get nostalgic over, but it's so cool to see that this gamne which defined my teenage years, which I'd followed since even before the 360 launched is still getting dedicated support. I'm installing platinum now for some muuuuch needed nostalgia. Thanks everyone for keeping this game alive ♥
  8. Oh look, a new TDU game, and a dinosaur arises from the shadows 'sup guys! good to see you again
  9. Hey @theinsaneone, it was awesome meeting you dude, it's definitely weird seeing how much i've grown since this place showed up, I mean, it must've been about 12 years ago now? This place definitely holds a real place in my heart and it was great to be here.Strange to think that I joined here at 16 and now I'm most of the way to 30. Crazy shit.
  10. Probably going to change the boost controller first, internally it's pretty much the same as the high pressure turbo, the LPT just farts out its boost before it does anything interesting. That'll give me about 50 ponies, after that it'll be stiffening the suspension as it's an absolute boat. maybe after i'll lookl at changing the pipes because with a proper kit the red block sounds angry as hell.
  11. Literally had 5 folding tables in it yesterday and 2 bits of 2x4 in it today. seats folded down is about the size of a double bed back there (proof, put an inflatable one in there and used it as a bed once :P)
  12. The new TVR Griffith finally got shown off and my god is it a looker. It's not quite the carnival of sneering, ludicrous, plastic, slashed and vented danger which would have been a pearlescent painted TVR from 10 years ago, but it still looks mean. Really looking forwards to seeing and hearing it on the track. Especially since they're taking it to LeMans [ATTACH]29950[/ATTACH] [ATTACH]29951[/ATTACH] [ATTACH]29952[/ATTACH]
  13. Met up with a friend recently who convinced me to get back into sim racing, so i've been giving automobilista a go. Graphics leave a lot to be desired but it feels really really good. Kinda like Live For Speed if they actually added content.
  14. Well look what the cat dragged in (Spoiler, it's me) I finally got bored of 2 wheels and bought a car! I also started as I meant to carry on by buying something with a big engine, a turbocharged and RWD... Oh... Well then... [ATTACH]29949[/ATTACH] Jokes aside, I love my big floaty turbobrick, and getting it sideways is so fun/wrong/hilarious that it almost justifies the abysmal economy
  15. The map of this game is amazing. No doubts. Its vast, its beautiful, its immersive and there are lots of challenges for any driver. Truly wonderful to behold. The cities are pretty big as it is, and then you realise there are hundreds of miles between them with the same level of detail. Incredible. Vehicle models are pretty nice too, things like the charger's headlights are good and I'm keen on customisation options. Sadly I haven't seen any way to edit fullstock vehicles colour. I'm happy with my viper freebie(ish, it uses the uPlay points) but I wish I could have it stock in yellow
  16. I wanted to be hyped for this game, but its all melting away thanks to Ubisoft. Holy crap what is it with Eden Games and its successor getting roped in with awful French publishers. Compared to Ubisoft, Atari are a damn diamond. Having to use uPlay for it was a shortcoming I could live with. So was the tiny car list. The news that I wouldn't be able to buy through steam was a stinger, and seeing the uPlay preorder price of £50 for a damn digital distribution was even worse. Maybe that would be it though, an overpriced game on a terrible platform but at least it was a good game under
  17. Getting tired of being told that I'm not high enough level :P That oversight of the level cap is getting real old now. I'd prefer if when you set a target, the distance showed the distance of your route, not the 'as the crow flies' distance. Yesterday I drove from Miami to LA and was wondering why the distance kept going up despite the fact I was doing 160mph :P PATHFINDING Talking of setting a target, Jesus wept the highways are screwy. Unless there are physically 2 separate 1 way highways, the GPS and traffic will do seriously dumb things, like suggesting you cross 2 lanes of onco
  18. I used the challenger approximately once. Bought a 300c as soon as I could. In hindsight, I'm not entirely sure why xD
  19. The manual gearbox is utterly god awful. The right stick should be for looking about, not making (really, really slow, laboured and bad) gearchanges. The slowness especially shows when you're trying to get into reverse after a crash. It is awful. Oh, and you can't change gear when there's a notification on screen or a menu open either, so when you touch a kit car you can't get back into reverse because it keeps telling you how many more bits to find there are.
  20. I'll be on PC for this one... When I eventually fork out for it anyway... £50 for a PC digital download my arse... bloody uPlay rip off merchants...
  21. Atari never dies. Some relatively unheard of publisher will just rebrand themselves to invoke nostalgia like infogrames did. (See: how many companies have called themselves 'commodore' Hopefully the license for test drive goes to someone competent.
  22. Looks like its all blown up ;D Who knows, with Atari US selling pretty much all of its IPs, including test drive, this could even end up actually called Test Drive Unlimited
  23. Another video: The formula rookie is a fun little car, hilariously slidey at speed, but fun on the whole. Looks like a canoe and handles like one too, imo it needs downforce but i'm sure that a wing would rob the already poor top speed performance
