Few things here since the new sneak previews. Will we have commentary during the game? If so can we turn it off and just have the spotter,crew chief? Or is DW, MJ just part of the intro in career mode like announcers where in last year's game.
Also, Im not on twitter so i cant ask these questions but just wanted to kno if in the career or exhibition mode will you be able to practice after you qualify. I like'd how on last year's game, you could practice, save after qualifying and practice the next day, race the next day. Honestly, I use a wheel and i got a great in home race set up and i follow the season race by race in the one car that i choose. I race the full lenghtand it is great. I can watch practice and figure out things i need to do. I don't go all out and dog it every lap. I more less run my lines clean and give the A.I. its line. This is a great, fun, and realistic way of running these races.> NTG11 in my opinion is really tough and hard to stomach at times. If playing in a conservative realistic way from the cockpit, with a wheel. But still fun and a challenge once you get it handling descent.
I actually used the RGM#7 and ran the daytona race this year and by using real practice and qualifying times from the real NSCS race weekend, I judge my times and where i rank by the times in real life cause i race with the weekend. Saying that it doesnt always work like you would like it to. I even treated it as if i didnt qualify under a 134.966 or 59.11 and that was the last go or go homer time to beat. I didn't happy hour the next day or race. It's a humbling feeling but it makes for when you do make it, it feels really cool. The racing and pet stops in NTG11 are broken. I didnt even download patch #3 because i was scared it would make it worse but i do enjoy the game. > I just have to do it my way. Like running 40-50 lap races till we pit and restarting the race if it gets ridiculous and i race the 50 again. I even back out and run shorter laps to end it. I have been running Nascar 09 truck series and nationwide at a few tracks. Treating it like was ARCA and K&N series. Nascar 09 has a very fun driving style with the wheel and I hope NTG12's has a simular style to that game wheel.
All in all the power that you feel in the cars with the wheel in NTG11 was great but no dead space in the wheel is torture to the experience. If you pull the wheel a little to the right you go hard left it pull way hard left. You should be able to slightly rock your race wheel left and right and the car not jump out of lane. Then a pull fitting the style of your set up you make your corners high, middle or low. And please let us be able to race three, four wide without bouncing around. NTG11 was pretty good in the minus the obvious..... I am loving everything i see so far,,,,, The future looks bright for Eutechnyx.
Many of you will say, "man you are too serious about these games," But i have to say I'm 27 and this is the most i've had fun with racing games racing with the wheel. Nothing like missing a race and,,,,,,, I'll even play the role of a start and park with the 7. I base how many points i make againt the real live point standings. I've only made two races this year lol Like i said been on Nascar 09 more this year.
P.S. Make online great, but dont forget what made nascar and sports games what they are. OFFLINE. It's what made games, never forget that Eutech. Keep up the great work!!!
