Must confess, I had a bit of a post-birthday splurge as a result. Picked up ACC + DLC, RFactor 2 + a load of DLC and the AMS2 Season Pass.
Already had that one in the library, destructive fun.Beam.NG is also on sale. Only thing I bought this year is Kokoro Clover.
I gave it a quick go last night and yes, the 'ring from my NVMe SSD chugged away loading, but once it did, taking the SR3 around it was just wonderful. Its just such an odd title, the driving is amazing, the mods are a doddle to install, but as a package, the UI and UX seem to have been designed simply to piss people off!It's a fantastic driving experience, but did you ever have an 80's home computer where you had to load games from a tape cassette? Well if you did then you're in for a nostalgia trip because that's how long it takes to load some of the tracks, even from an NVMe SSD

I also (non-racing) picked up Portal, Portal 2 and Deux Ex Human Revolution for under a fiver for all three.
Ooo telemetry, that’s getting installedAnd then some. Honestly I really don't do any time in it these days due to the UI and the loading times. They are working on a new UI which I've not seen yet, but for those that are running the UI beta it's been a mixed bag as far as I can tell
Never did get on with the Deux Ex titles, but the Portal series are an absolute treat - totally fantastic and a masterclass in game design.
Oh and by the way, as you've picked up ACC for PC there's something that you can do with it that you can't on console. And that is MoTeC Telemetry
Go to https://www.motec.com.au/i2/i2downloads/ and you can download i2 pro for free, and then follow the instructions on https://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/...-telemetry-and-dedicated-acc-workspace.55103/
Even if you don't need it, it's fun to look at the pretty graphs.
Ooo telemetry, that’s getting installed
I’ma long time follower of the crew chief dev, used it loads in PC2, even had my weird first name included the name list.Oh, one more thing that's essential for a PC sim racer, if you haven't got it already - Crew Chief - http://thecrewchief.org/
Just make sure you put "sweary mode" on for full effect. It's simply uncanny how it knows what's happening, it adds a complete new level of immersion, works with just about every PC racing sim, and it's totally free unless you want to donate a beer or two to the developer - which you will want to do
Sort of Steam-related: RaceRoom also has a 20% off for most of their stuff. I’m waiting for Black Friday though to grab the premium pack (all the content) with vRP.
Will take a look at the new UI, the marketplace I’ve already hit, lots of fun stuff from it and Race Department (already found Oulton Park, one of my favourites).A must have for rFactor 2 if you want to create a career or custom championships.
It's such a powerful tool I actually use it for league management.

Don’t forget to use the new UI, load times and the interface are much improved. They are switching to it permanently next month.
Also, visit the Workshop on the rFactor 2 steam homepage to get lots of great free mods. Just hit subscribe to automatically download.
Seems like new liveries are the only difference. Picked up 4 on the psn sale this week.
I discovered this in the featured section of Steam today. Have you played it yet? From a little bit of research it seems to be a blast to play with friends, not so much solo.No racing games for me - got enough on my plate with Wreckfest, ACC, iRacing and F1.
Picked up that new horror game Phasmophobia, the one nobody seems to shut up about. Yet to play it...

Thanks for the reply.I've logged about six hours in now and I've definitely enjoyed it enough to recommend it. I paid £9.39 for it, and my usual Return on Investment ratio for recommendations is £1 an hour, so to get over two thirds of that in two weeks is pretty good. It's brilliant with friends, especially a four person party on the big maps, and it works equally well alone, although my heart and sphincter recoil at the thought of another solo game would heartily recommend it if you have any mates with the game
