the funniest GT5 video…..evar!

I love GT5.  It is an incredible game.  A must own for anyone into cars.

This video absolutely cracked me up!  It is a replay of what happened to someone in the supercar challenge.

2011 video game preview: Dirt 3

Next week, i am trading in my dusty, neglected old Playstation 2 for a new Playstation 3 with Gran Turismo 5.  Gran Turismo 5 is released next week, on the 24th….i’m damn excited.  The previous games in the series have been amazing…..each one bettering the previous.

Here’s another game I just found out about today.  It will be out in 2011.  It’s called “Dirt 3” a continuation of the Dirt series of Rally games.  Looks like my GT5 disc is going to have some company in the flat!

GT5 details for Japan.

i’m not a big video game buff, but damn i gotta say i’ve HUGELY enjoyed the Gran Turismo series over the years.  So many classic cars, new cars, supercars, regular cars, modifying, some of the world’s greatest tracks, places i don’t think i’ll ever go to…..it’s like being able to enact a dream garage as realistically as possible……..

I haven’t bought a PS3, but i’m definitely ready to buy one when GT5 (Gran Turismo 5) comes out.  And now, FINALLY, after what seems like several years of rumours and gossip; it seems there are some concrete details!

November 3rd is the day it goes on sale in Japan.  What does that mean for us? I have no idea—they’ll probably try to create some cheesy holiday chaos for it, so that none of us will be able to find it…bastards.  But in Japan, they will get a special GT5 Edition PS3 bundled package.  This is the package I would buy, if they make it available here—here’s to hoping they do.  Check out the photo below for what it’ll look like.

Gran Turismo for PSP: A quick review

GTPSP_coversheet_Mech1

Earlier today, I picked up a copy of Gran Turismo for my little PSP.

The game does NOT have a Career Mode as Playstation versions of Gran Turismo have previously had.  In those versions, you can collect cars, compete in multi-car races, and keep a garage with a collection.  In this version, the gamemakers have NOT incorporated those features.  Basically it is single player race mode, time trial mode, and then a series of driving challenges to win you money and open up new cars you can buy with that money.

I think the purpose of this game was to give people a copy of their favourite tracks in the world—-to keep in their pocket, and play whenever one wants.  And for that purpose alone, GT for PSP is a superstar. Fantastic graphics and gameplay, and superb rendering of classic race tracks such as Suzuka, Nurburgring, Laguna Seca, etc.  All in all, a very cool idea.  I AM HOOKED ON the NURBURGRING, as always!

9/10.
