      hahaha, the track creator is terrible, imo. 99% of the tracks people made were basically unplayable. Off-camber blind corner + off-camber blind corner + off-camber blind corner + off-camber blind corner + off-camber blind corner + off-camber blind corner + off-camber blind corner + finish.

      XL comes with Version 2.0 of the game saving you the need to download a few gig of updates that happened between version 1.0 and 2.0 of the game (you'll still need to patch all the way up to the current 2.08 if you want to use online features though).

      It also includes a DLC code for the SPA Francorchamps and Kart Space DLC tracks, a touring car pack, Scirocco R, Golf R, a Mini and R35 GT-R Black Edition car DLC, a paint pack and I think a racing gear pack.

      Good value for $20 if you don't have the game already.

      it takes about 2.5 hours to download and install the 20+ updates if you start with 1.0. I did it recently when i upgraded my hdd.

      Depends on ISP speed.
      I noticed my PS3 downloads are MUCH quicker now that I went from 3 to 30 MB download speeds.
      Who would have thunk it?
      Previously, updates could take 30 minutes or longer...

      haven't played in a long time. did they make the seasonals MUCH harder? i'm lucky to get a 3rd place finish going balls out. very rarely do i get a 1st anymore. thats with the PP at the max, tranny topping out perfectly on the straits.

      IIRC seasonals were a fun fast way to get some serious points.

      the ai is still ****. They need to take a lesson from Forza, at least the AI in Forza is fun and even funny at times.

      The hardest seasonal I've had thus far is the Lamborghini one sometimes last month. Most season I can get by doing at the PP level suggested to double the winning, but that one I had to max out the PP and I am still short 3 sec at Nurburgring...

      i used to. If you want serious racing you need to head over to gt planet and join a league. Some are more casual than others. Some are very serious...too serious.

      I could get back into doing some races on GT5. I start to free up a bit more time in the evenings heading into the winter.

      A.Wilder tried for ages to get racing going on this forum, nobody was interested. I remember he and I raced in a 400PP "league" from GTplanet on a fairly regular basis for a while there.

      I was playing pretty much every night in a 450pp casual league. We didn't keep track of who won. Just raced clean and had fun. Also did some dirty racing which is a blast as well. I think we had ONE 2-3 hour session with some vwvortex people including quin and vwlarry's son and some of the poopers.

      yeah, the seasonals are absolutely harder. 80s car challenge, tsukuba circuit, first time check i am 16 seconds behind, 2nd time check i am 28 seconds behind.

      there is NO way i forgot how to drive that much in the 6 months since i played it last.

      Fo free??? Sheeet...


      Has the team revealed any information at any point in time about customizing livery? I feel like that would make the game a lot better and get some fun factor equal to that of Forza.
