I found it ! The Ultimate racing simulation game on PC : Assetto Corsa

Hello everyone,

Once again I’ll write about racing games. I’m playing racing & cars games for nearly 30 years 😉

My first game of cars ever was Test Drive in 1987 on Amiga !!! OMG so far away 😉

Then I played a lot of games, Virtua Racing on Mega Drive, and the 1st Need for Speed on Playstation.

Then one day I had a better Pc than the video game console and started to play simulation with a mod of F1 2002 called GTR 2002 from Simbin. It was awesome. On this mod I added plenty of other mods from Porsche Carrera cup to Le Mans prototypes, etc…

I kept playing also arcade games, like the NFS series with a preference to NFS Porsche Unleashed, and recently The Crew.

But as a real driver on tracks with my own cars, playing simulation is a must do.

I searched a lot, trying Forza, Gran Turismo, Project Cars, Grid, Shift, etc, etc and then recently after playing a little bit RaceRoom Experience, I discovered Assetto Corsa.

WOW, this game is so good, so realistic, the graphism, the sounds, the special effects, the handling, everything is really great, awesome.

I’ve made a couple videos to show you the game. Those videos are not about my driving skills, but to show you the essence of the game.

 

 

 

Others important points : Like I’m saying in the videos, you can customize the UI, the setup of the game, the setup of the cars the way you want. Everything is customizable !

And another point that gives devs the best credits ever in the game they continue developing and evolving the game, regularly and also the game is modeable ! You’ll find on internet plenty of mods, cars, tracks, etc…

 

What are you looking for ? Go try it 😉

 

Have fun guys and remember, play a lot 🙂

 

Later

Star Trek Online season 11.5 is here and well, nothing has changed, almost

Following my blog post of March, season 11.5 is live for more than a week now, with lots of changes and nothing that changed.

Wait what ?

The game has new features, that destroyed the pleasure we had. I explain : new skills system revamped !

As usual Cryptic starts something always by the behind door to stab you in the back. They introduce a while ago specialization points to push lvl 60 to keep playing to gather points corresponding to extra levels to add into one primary and one secondary skill tree called “specialization”.

Ok those skills tree gives extra bonus, defense, power, etc etc…

But the fact is that now, this system of skill tree has been switched to normal space and ground skills. Paf in our face ! Good job Cryptic.

If you are tactical, you’ll be obliged to put 27 points in the tactical departement, even if you don’t need some skills, just because now to get the final bonus of the tree, you need 27 points. Which also limits a lot the attribution of points to other area of the tree. before we could select how we would like a skill to work by placing 30-60-90 or 100% points in it.

example of skill tree build can be found here : https://www.sto-league.com/skilltree-suggestion/

I believe Cryptic is doing all this just to make the game playable by everyone, simple, easy, removing the difficulty of making toons, as more toons = more ships sold.

I’m disappointed. I’ve made an introduction video to season 11.5. You’ll see what I’ve already said, game is dead ! less than 50 players in pve queue.

 

I’ve also played the new feature episode. You can check it here, but honestly, it’s always the same now, space fight, ground fight, meeting with intrusion, etc etc, and nothing depending the classes you play. That’s why I’m wondering what Cryptic expect. Yes it cost money to create content, but do it well, do it correctly, with faction specification and classes specification.

 

 

Thanks for reading, have fun guys and remember, play 🙂

 

Finally : Marvel Heroes 2016 reviews

Hello all,

After making and uploading my videos reviewing my test of Marvel Heroes 2016, I completely forgot to make my blog’s post. :p

I repair my mistake by posting them today 🙂

1st part :

 

2nd part :

 

and last part :

 

I’ve kept playing it, and leveling several heroes. I have, now, 2 at 60 and 1 close to 60.

The fact is each heroes have a different play style, a real one, with even on each different play style compared to other players. This is good. The game is active, lots of events, and also if you don’t want to pay, you can play it free all the way as you’ll gather regularly by playing a lot an ingame money to be able to unlock other heroes, team-up, pets, etc…

 

If you like Heroes, if you like Marvel universe, then you should really give a try to the game 🙂

 

Have fun and play
