    Greece is brutal but still fast and exciting for the most part. Argentina is mostly narrow and slow, I actually like it a lot because it's so technical but it's very understandable if it turns off new players. It seems to be mostly hardcore players who enjoy Argentina at all.

    Good to know. I'm sure I'll get this at some point, though I am kind of curious about WRC 8.

    I've made a wee request to the exploding gekz club, if you don't mind.

    I like the Greece stages, I remember liking Greece waaaay back in colim McRae rally 1 on PS1. They are quite demanding, though, and I find it hard to put good times down. I also feel like the codriver instructions come a little later than other tracks for some reason. In USA or Poland, for example, I have the instructions coming in a good 100m meters or so before I enter the corners, but on Greece he is telling me 'slow, open hairpin right' as I'm already on top of the hairpin, more or less.

    I actually quite enjoyed wrc 7 so if 8 is better than I might pick it up.

    Just started playing this on Game Pass, and its properly good isn't it. The handling feels spot on. One of the few games where it actually feels like driving a proper car, for me at least.

    It seems a bit more accessible / forgiving than the original although maybe that's just be because I'm still in that FR Lancia thing at the start.

    Looks stunning in 4k. Prettier than Horizon 4 even.

    @Rodney It is a bit easier to play, the handling is awesome, it's probably my favourite driving game ever.

    @KD I have accepted your request. Apologies for the delay. I am just working through the requests at the moment. I assume it is all people from here.

    Sorry for fucking up the lighting conditions in the current event. I received adequate punishment by having to drive the whole midnight stage without lights--and the rest of the event with a wrecked engine.

    @DrStrangelove I avoided major problems on the night stage, just a couple of minor scrapes on the first couple of stages.

    My attempt to overturn Salrip's 17 second lead on the final stage was scuppered when I rolled over a fence into some spectators.

    Salrip was flying early on!

    Yeah, it went really good, few mistakes apart from a puncture on the last bit of the last stage, so I didn't lose much time fortunately. Helped that I've been playing the usa stages a bit lately, as I have goldfish memory I must trust the notes extensively, wich usually means I make some dumb mistake when my mind starts to wander :)

    Ah well. I'll still play it a bit, but might have to plump for the Steam version at some point.

    Hi. Any chance I could join Exploding Gekz 2 please? Will be active. I'm not that good or anything, playing on a pad. Have the full 4 season pass.

    Edit: have sent a join request. I'm already in EurogamerDR2

    So there are two more requests in EGDR2, brainbird and EstelUK. Is that anyone here reading this?

    I'm genuinely shocked somebody would ask this. I'm posting at least twice a year.

    @DrStrangelove I haven't posted on here in many years but I still play Gears and Halo with EGers occasionally. I just want some times to race against as I'm off work for two weeks with a busted knee. Any chance I could join Exploding Gekz 2? Bitte ich werde sympatisch sein, versprochen.

    @racing_fan
    If you're Esteluk, you've been added to EGDR2. There are no other pending requests currently. As for Exploding Gekz 2, I can't do anything about that, I'm not a mod there.

    I didn't expect to do so well with me playing it in VR and no assists, first DR game I was still trying to stop using assists and not long before that changed to manual gears for all driving games.

    I just cant play it not in VR, I just think I'll do absolutely shit bouncing between modes.

    Congratulations to TheGreenYamo on his victory! Someone else will have to create another championship though, I really lack the motivation to play or create events.

    @DrStrangelove Cheers Doc! It looks like everyone crashed out on the last event, I'll take it though.

    I'll happily make another championship, I'll see if Decks set me up with admin rights, if not I can ask for them!

    I'd stick with non-DLC stuff, so the gamepass folks can join in.
