Things you will need: a 3D Printer, an old SNES controller, a really clever friend.

Strangely, whilst the Wii U version is clearly superior in its graphics, the gamecube version actually has small details that are missing from HD remake, such as the wake behind the boat in the bird scene, the foam at the front of the boat, and the wind 'swirls' in the bird scene. I wonder why those omitted those?

I've been TRYING to get into R3E on and off for a year or so now, and just simply can't.  The cost of content is far too high (I'd rather pay a one off fee, regular game price, and have access to almost all content) but more so, its been almost impossible to set up my DFGT correctly. I've not found a way to have true 1:1 ratio and because of this, its ruining it for me.  

Also, the game really doesn't appear to have progressed much, and I find the UI more complex than it should be, especially in regards to FFB setup to which there is ZERO explanation as to what does what and how it affects the driving.

On a positive note, it runs well and easily has the best sound of any racing title I've played to date. It's reasonably good looking too, although not up to par with PJC. I should also add that the sense of speed seems much better on this than AC or iRacing.

+Inside Sim Racing I can't remember if there is an option or not as its been some time since I opened the program, but I believe the camera appears to be locked to the horizon, which is why the car is jumping about. It needs an option like AC to uncheck that so the camera bounces about, and not the car.

My word! Nintendo are blowing it up! A new Zelda AND a new Starfox! That Zelda trailer looked absolutely amazeballs!

So glad I have a Wii u! Its turning into a Stella console!

Wowza. Fantastic video. How the hell did you get AC looking like that though! That's project cars level of detail! My ac looks no where near that good!

Hi Lee
I have been looking at getting this, the Obutto Ozone, or the Volair Sim, but cannot decide between them.

What is the seat material like on this rig? I am worried that being faux leather, it may peel/crack like many other chair's I've purchased in the past (although these have been cheap Homebase/B&Q office seats).

Do you know if the frame can 'push-up' easily. By that, I mean can the chair base be released easily so it can be pushed up closer to the console to reduce footprint when not in use?

And lastly, the console base says it can hold 8KG - do you think this would be able to hold a PC and route cables neatly?  

What are your impressions of it a year on?

Hi Jamie,
 1. After a year of pretty intense use the seat material is coping very well. 95% of it looks brand new still, the faux leather is now starting to wear through just at the point where my arse is! Its purely cosmetic so far, pretty happy it looks like it will last much longer still.
2. You can disconnect the chair section from the wheel/pedal section quite easily just releasing 2 pinch bolts (I had some bolts that were allen heads and other that are hand operated). I wouldn't be able to tuck it forward much further though as the shifter and keyboard mounts would get in the way.
3. I haven't used the console base at all, mostly because for some reason I couldn't figure out how to mount it....

My overall impressions of it a year on are that I am still very happy with my purchase and the rig still functions exactly as it did one year ago. It is extremely solid and does every thing I expected from it. However I am very keen to have a more formula car style seating position and am eyeing up some alternatives for the future.

Interesting that there is Nvidia advertising on the PS4 version. I wonder what AMD will have to say about that!

Graphics looks ace, but it does all like a bit "arcady". I'm sure it'll be a lot of fun to play though.

If only more famous people donated some of their "pocket money" to causes like this the world would be a much better place. I used to dislike Leo a lot when I was younger, but over the years he's proven himself not only as a very talented actor, but as a genuinely good bloke! +Richard Branson would be proud!

I never knew about this the first time around! Whilst the start is a bit slow, the 2nd half is actually great, and a perfect fit for the legend that is Rik Mayall!  Campaign to get this to number one!
I for sure would rather this than another hippitty hoppity song or something from Simon's crutch! #england   #worldcup2014   #rikmayall

Story
Introduction
A technology fan at the core, I enjoy reading and involving myself in it. The distance we have come as a race is phenomenal and I look forward to seeing more of it. 

On the flip-side of this, I love nature and all the beauty and curiosity it brings with it. Nature, our relationship with it and how technology has helped us understand it better is always my biggest joy.

As an avid scuba diver, the ocean has always been my dream destination for a job, which I hope will one day become a reality.

Back on land, I love PC gaming, getting out and about and socialising. 

My interests vary from making bread on a Saturday morning (which the Mrs loves) to getting up bright and early to head on down to Thruxton or Brands Hatch for the latest motorsports races.

My interests in music are mostly based heavily around Trance and house, although do dabble in the odd bit of indie/alternative music and Jazz!

Film wise, I will watch anything that makes me smile. Action, Comedy and Rom-coms are the normal, but naturally love a good sci-fi flick when the Mrs allows it ;)
