F1 2010 Broken

It all seemed to be going so well and then bam like an engine blow out, a puncture or Mark Webber up the inside your race is ruined. After a hugely successful launch for F1 2010 (outselling both Halo Reach and Dead Rising 2 combined) It’s now spun off on the last corner before taking the chequered flag. Many players are experiencing severe game breaking issues, the worst being game saves, which are becoming corrupt…

Codemasters have said;

We believe this only occurs if, after completing an R&D objective, you…
- Retire to the paddock via the Engineer (in the garage).
- Terminally damage your car and select retire to paddock.
- Get disqualified and select retire to paddock.

And provided a work around until it is fixed;

After a practice session where you complete an R&D objective and unlock a new upgrade make sure you then load in to the following qualifying session before exiting the game.

So at least you can load up your save files, shame then that there are many bugs wrecking your racing experience here’s a full list & video of all major bugs and glitches that have been found so far from Codemasters Forum after the jump Read the rest of this entry »

New DiRT 3 Screens

DiRT 3 is, arguably, going to be one of the best looking racing games out there (CodeMasters has always done a really awesome job of making great looking games anyway). They recently released a collection of 5 shots from the game, which show a lot of the detail in the game, as well as the diversity in the tracks (something DiRT 2, at least, was lacking in).

I love racing games, and DiRT 2, in my opinion, is still one of the best off-road racers (though, RalliSport Challenge 2 might edge it out on track variety, but it appears DiRT 3 could take that away from them). Can’t wait to get this one. With older rally cars being a part of it (it was mentioned in a press release a couple weeks ago), I’d like to get my hands on an old Lancia Stratos, assuming it will make an appearance in there. It’s one of my favorite rally cars. Be sure to check a larger version of this picture, as well as 4 other ones, after the jump.

F1 2010 Developer Diary Video No.5 (Live The Life)

This is the final Developer Diary for Codemasters F1 2010 and features the career mode detailing the many facets of an F1 driver’s life. The car setups sound great with slight tweaks being all that’s needed to fine tune the car. I’m really hoping they have a Fallout 3 style dialogue tree for the paddock/interview areas allowing you to build your own reputation and smack talk other drivers. Secretly I hope you get the chance to chat up the grid girls, but then that might not be realistic assome drivers seem care about their car more… F1 2010 is due out the end of this year.
