Playing FarCry 3.  It helps me with my anger management.  I like to think.


Shut your face. If I wanted to hear from an asshole, I'd fart.

Is Asphalt a decent racer? I haven't found a good free one.

Real Racing 3 from EA was released on Thursday. I've been playing it this weekend.I've played 6 total hours on it, and made it to level 15. Much more realistic than Asphalt. In Asphalt, when you wreck your car, or cause a competitor (computer controlled) to wreck, it flies through the air dramatically. In RR3, I've only caused one competitor's car (actual person) to spin out. I've had multiple players slam on the brakes in front of me, causing me to rear end them and destroy my hood, reducing performance. That's another difference: in Asphalt, when you damage your car, you just damage your car, performance isn't affected. In RR3, damage affects performance. And you have to service the car, oil changes, tune ups, new tires/brakes. This takes time, and makes that car unavailable for use, just like in real life.

 

Forgot to mention, RR3 is free.

I just tried this. Only had a few minutes on it. Seems fun. I'm not used to the steering (I don't even like steering wheels for consoles, just a basic controller). I'm oversteering a lot. (And I wish the track mini map was top right, not bottom left on screen.)

That's odd, the track mini map is top left on mine. Maybe the camera view being used affects the map location. I've been using the cockpit view, as if I'm the driver. I'll see if I can get a screen cap later.

 

Also, I'm playing on an iPad, not sure if the layout is different between iPad & iPhone/iPod Touch.


No.

Yeah, I'm using the outside-the-car-slightly-behind-it-and-above-it view. You're probably right that it's view dependent. I'll try to check it tomorrow. I obviously haven't played much.

I played a ton of it this past weekend (up to level 48 now), and switched from the Driver's perspective to the outside-the-car-slightly-behind-it-and-above-it perspective. The map is immediately to the left of the car in that view. It's nice that it's there, following the car, instead of up (or down) in a corner where you have to take your eyes off the road to see the map.


No.

Yeah, I'll probably get used to it. (I've never been good with cockpit view.)

 

I guess the thing I like about minimaps at the top of the screen is it's where my eyes are. I'm trying to look down the road, not at my rear bumper.
