if all that is true, i'm pretty excited and it'll finally mean dusting off the, erm, dust from my ps3.

track editor eh, hmm.

i hope they have open wheeled vehicles in this, something i love.

I still don't believe that this game will really, finally come out November 1st (and possibly earlier in Europe / Japan?). I don't quite understand how the track editor is supposed to work - that'll be interesting if it really makes it in (was it PGR 3 or 4 that had one where you just kind of moved pieces of their existing tracks around to make slightly new layouts - that didn't add much, if I remember right). The WRC license is very cool, especially as the official new WRC game coming out in a few months looks to be crap, but too bad the game will only have a few tracks that it'll be good for. Same with Nascar. I may buy a PSeye for headtracking - seems like a very cool feature (if it works). Based on the Prologue and recent demo, I don't believe the "best graphics in any racing game" claim (that's just fanboys posting that) - they've been working on it so long it's already dated - I doubt it'll reach the levels of Dirt 2 or Need for Speed: Shift on PC or Codemaster's F1 2010 (which looks amazing). Hopefully they've done a lot of work with the online as it was really lackluster in Proglogue. The day to night transistion (in the video above) looks beautiful. I don't quite understand the 20 locations and 70 variations - twenty seems like a low number for a track count in a game with 1,000 cars - GT4 had around 40 different track loacations, I think... http://www.gtplanet.net/guides/index.php/Gran_Turismo_4_:_Track_List

really want this but don't feel like trudging a whole 10 minutes to the game shop. guess i'll have some more potato chips.

progressive cuts (Tracer Hand), Wednesday, 24 November 2010 23:14 (ten years ago) link

I got this last night and am pretty addicted. I haven't played a GT since 3, so after almost 10 years it all seems pretty fresh again.

get off my lawn (rockapads), Thursday, 25 November 2010 18:24 (ten years ago) link

I still think this game would be better with more realistic penalties for crashing and running other cars off the road. I play it like NASCAR or some shit and it's almost always effective if I cause enough havok.

apparently the damadge system unlocks as you level up... some kind of crazy design decision.

Jeff LeVine, Thursday, 25 November 2010 18:56 (ten years ago) link

huh. yeah that is pretty weird. i would really be OK with a substantial wreck just ending a race. in the harder races, you can't recover from rubbing against a wall or spinning out one time anyway.

get off my lawn (rockapads), Thursday, 25 November 2010 20:02 (ten years ago) link

at least give us a cool animation of the car wrecking, and make us have to pay for repairs. if this game is like others, money gets plentiful 75% through it.

progressive cuts (Tracer Hand), Tuesday, 30 November 2010 10:08 (ten years ago) link

ha

I am still hooked, but I agree with most of the negative criticism I've read. I wish they would have just put less "premium" cars in the game instead of having 3/4 of the cars look like they were ported directly from the PS2 generation titles. The lack of customization options for the "standard" cars is lame. Some of the tracks look pretty bad. I don't understand why they put so much work into modeling tracks, then paint the grass bright ass florescent green. Mute that shit a little. Make it look like a Ridley Scott movie or something. 50% of the appeal of these games for me is just driving fast through cool surroundings. I also despise the menu system. Even with the 10GB disc install, the loading becomes unbearable after a while. You screw up and go into the wrong menu, or hit the back button, and you have to sit there and wait for an eternity. I don't understand why it took them 5 years to make this game. I guess they spent all that time coding the useless online features that I will never use.

get off my lawn (rockapads), Tuesday, 30 November 2010 17:43 (ten years ago) link

ouch

still probably gonna get this - haven't played GT since version 2 came out in what, 2000?

progressive cuts (Tracer Hand), Tuesday, 30 November 2010 17:51 (ten years ago) link

online is also a bit undercooked actually (no credits earned, no leaderboards, ranks, records, no punishments for racing like an ass, etc). but you should at least try it out - kart racing against a full lobby is super fun.

Jeff LeVine, Tuesday, 30 November 2010 17:52 (ten years ago) link

the feature list in the 2nd post itt is *drool* but i can't imagine a GT was made w/o a bunch of infuriatingly stupid design decisions. the damage system is... unlocked? the fuck?

first as tragedy, then as favre (goole), Tuesday, 30 November 2010 17:53 (ten years ago) link

but i shd probably butt out since i don't have a ps3 and probably never will lol

first as tragedy, then as favre (goole), Tuesday, 30 November 2010 17:53 (ten years ago) link

Yeah, the car damage stuff is really wtf. I have been playing for probably 15 hours and am still not high enough level to see any significant damage.

no punishments for racing like an ass

this is actually a huge gripe about the single player mode for me, too. I wanted damage because I wanted a race to basically be over once I smashed my car badly enough. Instead, I can just use the other cars to cut corners and circumvent the whole apex turning they spend so much time teaching you in the license tests.

All that said, I am still having a great time playing it. I haven't played since GT3, so I really missed the feel of these games. I haven't enjoyed any other realistic racing game like I have enjoyed the GT games. They always just feel off to me somehow. Despite all of the complaints I've listened, I am asking for the Driving Force steering wheel for x-mas, despite how 40 Year Old Virgin it'll make me look.

get off my lawn (rockapads), Tuesday, 30 November 2010 17:58 (ten years ago) link

ugh I'm entitled to a free copy of this game with a telly I bought but don't think I can be arsed chasing it up.

Interests: eating my cookie (Autumn Almanac), Tuesday, 30 November 2010 21:43 (ten years ago) link

I have about a billion problems with this game already but one that I don't think has been mentioned here is the 3D settings. It offers parallax and convergence, gives you a vague description of what they do and provides no on-screen queues. At all. You have to GUESS a setting, go all the way out of the settings menu and wait for the opening sequence to load. EVERY TIME.

i don't understand that paragraph

progressive cuts (Tracer Hand), Friday, 3 December 2010 12:07 (ten years ago) link

Then you are 2/3 of the way to understanding my problem.

maybe i'll just wait for the slim version.

progressive cuts (Tracer Hand), Friday, 3 December 2010 12:18 (ten years ago) link

wait, what are we talking about?

progressive cuts (Tracer Hand), Friday, 3 December 2010 12:18 (ten years ago) link

All right, let's say you have to fill out a form specifying how far up your arse the doctor sticks his finger. You get to choose a number between 0 and 10 and you have no concept of what the numbers mean, so you arbitrarily pick 7 and submit the form. Two minutes later a doctor's got his fist so far up your bum that he's picking your nose.

I may rent this first.

dude come on, it's a huge, crazy game, it's gonna have some loading screens. i think developers have become so adept at hiding the loading progress in-game that when a game reverts to type (remember the loading screens on the original tomb raider, or GT1?) it's like break out the pitchforks. but you know, it'll get there. you're at home on a comfy chair. no rush.

just reliving the perverse, masochistic pleasure of trying for gold in every driving test. i've never played a training level in any other game as difficult or rewarding

progressive cuts (Tracer Hand), Wednesday, 8 December 2010 00:39 (ten years ago) link

xp That may be so but the menu convention and horrible 3D calibration system make this game a real chore to use in 2010.

I'll play it properly soon (haven't touched it since last week) and am prepared to eat my words.

unintentional boob pic (Autumn Almanac), Wednesday, 8 December 2010 01:02 (ten years ago) link

The loading for a race isn't so bad (30 sec. or so, pretty standard for racing games), but it's the poorly designed UI/menu system that gets to be a drag as you have to go through a variety of menus to do anything and each of those menus takes 10-20 seconds (or more to load)... it adds up to a lot more time spent in menus than there needs to be. Sometimes I feel like I'm in the menu system more than in races - I'd love to see the stats. The menu system is weirdly poorly designed & just because it has always been poor in GT isn't an excuse. I keep a sketch book by my side when playing and have filled pages with doodles and whiney complaints.

For me, the variety of content is the best thing about the game, but sometimes it's a weakness as certain areas seem to lack focus (rally in particular feels like shit to me). Online is undercooked and a mess... and that you don't get credits or experiences for online races is absurd (they claim it will be patched in at some point, I guess). Also the cars I'd most like to drive are too fucking expensive - I mean 14,000,000 credits expensive - THE GRIND.

Jeff LeVine, Wednesday, 8 December 2010 03:13 (ten years ago) link

Yeah, no excuse for poor UI design these days. Good conventions are so widespread and so absolute that reinventing the wheel is mental whichever way you look at it. I don't know what got into these people. Pseudo-mouse-pointer to select buttons? Back + acknowledge to go back? The stupidest settings menu structure I have ever seen? etc etc.

unintentional boob pic (Autumn Almanac), Wednesday, 8 December 2010 03:16 (ten years ago) link

I dunno, it just feels like someone suddenly manufacturing a car with the brake pedal on the ceiling.

unintentional boob pic (Autumn Almanac), Wednesday, 8 December 2010 03:17 (ten years ago) link

Don't get me wrong, at times I really do like the game (in particular I've mostly had a blast racing karts online), but at other times it has really aggravated me. My main gripes are the absolutely shockingly shit AI (which is why I most want credits for racing online) and the 80% standard cars (not just because of how crap they look, but mainly because I like to race in cockpit view, which they don't have), and the used car dealership for the standard cars that only stocks a small random batch at a time that is never the cars I need to do certain events.

Jeff LeVine, Wednesday, 8 December 2010 03:24 (ten years ago) link

Ah, I thought maybe I just didn't know the correct button to engage cockpit view. Can't believe they locked that down.

haha i actually got hit with that right after the 45min GT installation, when it asks you to login to PSN. which required quitting GT, then installing the update, then starting GT again..

I haven't been playing this as much due to other distractions, but I am at a point where I would almost be tempted to enter a full unlock cheat code just to do a cool arcade mode race once in a while.

get off my lawn (rockapads), Tuesday, 4 January 2011 17:01 (ten years ago) link

Also, I really want a wheel peripheral. If I could afford to plunk down $100 for one I think it would breathe new life into this game.

i'm having an absolute blast with the seasonal events, special events and license tests - all of them test your finesse to the utmost. i am sooooo far from getting golds at nurburgring it's not even funny

it's just so strange that the A-spec meat of the game is so utterly unbalanced in comparison

progressive cuts (Tracer Hand), Wednesday, 19 January 2011 23:44 (ten years ago) link

OK i discovered the secret to A-spec being balanced and fun:

- DON'T SPEND ANY MONEY if you can help it

your natural inclination is to tune the shit out of these cars... so you can win... duhhh. but no. if you do that, then 1) the races are no fun, because you blow away the competition and 2) you will be hurting for cash

progressive cuts (Tracer Hand), Thursday, 27 January 2011 11:40 (ten years ago) link

anyway i've gotten back into this and i am having a blast.. finally went back to the VW bus challenge at the Top Gear track and i have to say that is maybe the most challenging and exciting races i've ever played on a console..

(despite the fact that in order to win you basically have to drive like a complete asshole)

Gonna keep spamming this thread out of futility.

I'm ~33% done with RR3, it's been pretty great so far, though starting to get slightly repetitive and the next class seems to warrant a huge jump in game$ that I'm not sure corresponds with the prize $ but I could be wrong. I'm still playing freemium style with $0.00 of my own $ invested despite being tempted up the wazoo. Good game! Best free game I've played on the iPhone w/o a doubt.
