Enjoy sim racing? Got myself a new Thrustmaster T500RS wheel and pedals set yesterday and decided to fire up rFactor 2 for the first time in a while. The game has come a long way since I last played, both in usability and in visual appeal. It is still a very hardcore simulator, so many of the gamey elements and hooks aren't present. In fact race teams around the world use it to train drivers and develop race cars. It also has (to many) unmatched force feedback. It's on steam sale at the moment if you have the urge. Fair warning though: to play online you need to pay a subscription or buy the lifetime pass version, however the subscription is <£10 per year. Most of the online servers are unpopulated, with few people racing with random strangers. The real meat of the online experience is either playing with friends and/or joining a third party league. For solo play, the AI is generally extremely good. It occasionally behaves stupidly on some sections of modded tracks. Overall though it's regarded as the best race AI out there and can fool you into thinking you're racing against human opponents. Last night, @cjo and I had a few runs at Silverstone, Melbourne and another track whose name escapes me using either the Renault Megane or the Formula ISI (essentially Formula 1 without the trademark) and had a great old time of it with much crashing, bumping and spinning out. Would be cool if other B3Ders wished to join the fun.
