I like cars and I'm decent with photoshop... That's all there is to say I guess.
6th May 2016
Especially on the Twitter post for GT regarding the new update, there has been a lot of hate on the micro transactions feature.
If you didn’t know, GT Sport’s most recent update added some new cars, a track, and a feature where you can spend a dollar (probably varies based on region) on any car less than 2 million credits to purchase it.
Anyway, everyone on the Twitter has been complaining of how micro transactions are ruining the game, but none of them ever said why… I mean, PC2 or AC have around the same number of cars, and both have micro transactions, but it didn’t get nearly as much backlash. Sure, you could argue that the physics on either game are superior, but that doesn’t answer my question.
(Besides, physics are subjective, so there’s no point responding with a 4 paragraph argument about why PC2/AC/whatever has better physics than GT - if you’re here to hate then go join the rest on YouTube.)
Not looking to start an argument, and I don’t wanna see any negative comments about any racing game (“Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing” is excepted). kthxbye
Not long ago, an article was released on the latest cars in Forza’s “Forzathon”. This is great and all, but I feel as though the coverage of other video game titles is a little underwhelming.
Quite recently, Slightly Mad Studios has (officially) announced that they will be adding nine new cars to Project Cars 2. So far, I’ve seen no articles regarding this somewhat significant update. You may also know that Polyphony Digital added another twelve (free) DLC cars into Gran Turismo Sport. Again, nothing in the way of articles about the update.
You could say it’s just a coincidence that they haven’t given us anything about this. But how could it be a simple coincidence? The CT staff have released heaps of other articles regarding previous video game updates from GTS and PC2.
Assetto Corsa was received very well in the hands of critics and gamers - with some dubbing it as “the most realistic racing game of all time”. We’ve seen from the past that FM7 and FH3 were extensively covered by CT when they were released. If a sequel to a highly successful video game franchise such as Forza is covered extensively, then you’d hope that any upcoming sequels (cough cough) for any other highly successful video game franchises (cough cough) will be reported as soon as possible.
Assetto Corsa is starting to show it’s age, so when it’s sequel is announced sometime in the near future, you’d assume they’d cover it extensively. Oh, wait… Assetto Corsa Competizione (AC’s sequel) has just been announced… Almost two weeks ago! We’ve seen nothing in the way of coverage for any other racing title than Forza and it outrages me.
CT needs to realise not everyone has a gaming PC/Xbox, and that not everyone on CT will play Forza. Some people will play games on mobile, for instance.
And don’t tell me “it’s nice to know about video game updates even if you don’t have the game” unless you want to sound like a massive fool
