Well, I now got the car the feel naturally when driving at speed (by fiddling with the Logitech profiler) but at slow speeds it's like you're driving around in a boat, drifting is also out of the question: try to countersteer and you're of.
Anyway, still playing it because of the awesome cars, environment looks good too.

Yep, the sheer amount of content encouraged me to keep going until I got the controls down. More cars would be nice though. Many more cars. Often you have a choice of 3 in a class, one of which is prohibitively expensive (I bought the damn Spyker SUV anyway, because fuck yeah).

I was being my asian self and bought the Mercedes ML63 AMG, figured i wanted a bit more of a challenge :D

Though comes to think of it, haven't been bothered to play TDU2 for awhile due to being busy (last 2.5 weeks of my Highschool life :p), Once summer hits, plenty of time!

Ooh just wait till you get to 'Dangerous Descent' on Hawaii Cup 1, every little ounce of power counts. By the way, with the exploration pack released on PC, how much are the reward cars worth when you sell them?

The Spyker SUV is my fastest car full-stop, power is not an issue :D

But for a challenge I just bought the C1 Corvette for the Classic-3 races. Slightly disappointed that you can't raise the roof when it rains, and that it doesn't use the amazing 2-speed autoglide transmission :(

I'm already in Hawaii, what? :O
I actually think offroading in my Lancia Delta is the most fun :p

Also, just bought a 458 Italia

Not that anyone cares anymore...TDU2 is as good as dead. I won't start playing it again until they release a substantial car pack. By substantial I mean at least 50 cars. Price doesn't matter. I just need a bigger variety.

Ooh, Steam sales :woot:

TDU2 is easily worth 5 Euros to me. Now what else to get? :hmm:

Edit: crap, I was slow. It's at 10 now - not sure if want.

I don't see where it says "fall"? Now, I believe it, just don't see it.
It must have said it wherever I got that link from. I thought it was an e-mail, but now I can't find the e-mail. Maybe it was Reddit? No, can't find it there either...

I swear I'm not going crazy...

The DLC has been out for PC since late April. Eden/Atari claimed that the DLC for PS3 and Xbox was ready and it was in Sony and Microsoft's hands for approval. That was 2 months ago. I don't think Sony or Microsoft are that slow in approving patches. Atari are just lying...

In case you didn't know around 70% of Eden's staff was sacked because of Atari's restructuring model.

Haha, like I said, I believe it though. Hopefully it will be out in a couple weeks when I get back in town, because there's not really any new games I want to play until F1 2011 is out, so I would be very much inclined to get back into the game. After Sep. 24 or whatever, it's game after game of awesomeness, very little chance.

I heard about that, but if they already had most of it done, it shouldn't be a huge deal. Obviously they didn't. And from what I remember, it usually takes 7 days or less for MS/Sony to approve patches, it depends on the game and the degree of importance. Sony first party titles can usually patch when they want and even set a date a week or two out (I believe GT5 dated a few patches earlier this year), third party games need a few days.

With the way it's going, I don't think a second sequel to TDU will ever see the light of day.

We're finally gonna need a car where we're going.
I'm trying to join the FinalGear club but there is no proper way of browsing through all the clubs. Can anybody send an invite?

I'd love one as well, thevictor390. My fastest car is A5 or A4 or so and I haven't played online much though.
