Is this game done with DLC, or can we expect things to get back on track (as it were!) for further downloadable content? I'm eager for more!

Yup, dlc today for NA, wed for EU I think.

Quote:
Twin Ring Motegi Pack (2 tracks, 4 layouts)
The Twin Ring Motegi is a racing circuit located in Japan that has both an oval and road course. The 2.4km oval ‘Superspeedway’ is mainly used as the stage for American motorsports, while the 4.8km road course is used for races like the Super GT and Formula Nippon.
In addition to these two tracks, the Twin Ring Motegi Pack also includes the West and East courses that are formed by separating the first and latter half of the road course, letting you enjoy the different technical layouts of the Motegi Track
Price: $5.00

Scion FR-S ’12
The long awaited compact FR (front engine, rear wheel drive) sportscar from Scion carries a 2-liter horizontally opposed engine that gives it a very low center of gravity and great weight distribution, and the car is specifically designed throughout to provide driving pleasure. The car is a brother of the Toyota 86 sold in Japan, and its front engine-rear wheel drive layout makes it perfect for learning sports driving techniques. Put one in your garage!

Price: FREE

ok, i just have to gripe about this.....

when i go to do the seasonal events, it just aggravates me to no end how you can't just "continue" on to the next race instead of going back to the previous menu and then selecting the next race from there.

sure i guess it works for those that would want to use a different car for the next race, but for those of us that like to use the same car it would be awesome if you could just select the next race like in a series event in gt mode. if you want to use a different car for the next race then yes, go back to the previous menu and select a car from there. otherwise.......

i know this seems frivolous and it's not a deal-killer or something that would make me stop playing, but it's just one of those little things that aggravates me about this game.

skeeter i think the reason they wont do that is because some of the seasonal events like the aspec races are 400-530-650pp so you have to exit to pick another car. I don't think they can do it just for the events where the pp is the same but yea i found it frustrating as well.

yeah i thought about that, but only after i made the post.

[SARCASM]
this is the worst game ever. they should have the capacity to do that. it's only fair. they have the technology. they can make it better, faster, stronger. i hate this game. why can't they just make the game we all want? this is the worst game ever.
[/SARCASM]






oh, and Grim Reaper, i just drove the fr-s for the first time. that thing is absolutely amazing to drive. it has great balance and nice pick-up out of the corners. very fun, indeed.

I have NEVER seen an S2000 in person until a recent dental visit, I'd only seen them in GT or other video games. I have seen 3 more since! And last week saw something else I've never seen in person, a Roush Mustang. My 9 year old caught that right off the bat. And I even saw an orange Prowler this week. I can't remember the last time I saw one that wasn't at a dealer. I rarely go out but its been cool to see these cars. Drove over to the Dodge dealer. They are loaded to the gill with 392 Challengers. They cost 50 Gs but they are so cool looking. The Chargers, with no graphics pattern, looks plain in comparison. When they told me it was going to be 8 grand to paint my vehicle, I started thinking trade in, lol.

Menu navigation has improved 100% over release. It took FOREVER to go between events and sections when the game first came out and it was very annoying. It still could be tweaked but I am glad they do so much work on it.

so i was going back and doing the seasonal events that i haven't yet done.

i was having fun using my b-spec drivers to get some experience for them when i come to b-spec online challenge #5, third race at cote d'azur, 650pp car.

i have come in second so many times it's really not funny anymore.

NONE of my drivers can pass when it's opportune for them. they all try to pass at the chicane just after the tunnel. and what happens? they try to pass too late on the inside and wind up hitting the barrier and getting stuck there and subsequently get passed by at least 2-3 a.i. cars.

i've tried using the commands at the right times, but nothing seems to work.

and the ONE TIME i finally passed for 1st it was on the "back stretch" in the left-right section, he hit the barrier on the very last turn and got passed to wind up in 2nd.......yet again!

i've tried several different cars and every one of my drivers. i've probably run that race at least 15 times to no avail (made some decent credits, though; small consolation).

and the one car it seems would do the trick well (after some reading on other forums) is the bmw mclaren f1 gtr. you can only get it in the used lot but it hasn't showed up in a long time.


sorry, just had to vent for a bit.

That one was a tough one for my Bob as well, you have to send a cooler-headed driver and keep telling him to stay cool BEFORE the car enter the tunnel.

I finally beat that race after a couple of hours.
