GTPlanet Weekly Rewind: My Favourite Game

October 25th, 2013 by Terronium-12

Lamborghini Aventador

I assure you I’ve had this particular image earmarked since last week, the fact that there just happened to be a “Lamborghini Exclusive” Seasonal Event this past Wednesday was a pure coincidence. A coincidence that almost swayed me from using this, but aren’t you glad that I decided to use it anyway?

We’re coming up on the Rewind’s first year anniversary and I haven’t the foggiest idea how I’m going to handle that, which is why I’m turning to all of you: if you have any ideas for the upcoming celebration don’t be shy, drop me a private message or post whatever idea you have in the comments below. Remember, next month is poised to be full of gaming related news every which way, so it will be better to have ideas on hand now and not at the last minute.

We’re quickly approaching the beginning of everything new in November and of course, Thanksgiving. I’ve been looking forward to that particular holiday since June! Of course there’s a lot more going on in November as well: the launch of nVidia’s GeForce GTX 780 Ti, the launch of the PS4 and XB1, games galore, the aforementioned Thanksgiving, and then Black Friday. I feel like I’ve left something out but with so much already going on, that short list of things to come will have to suffice for now.

For the past three weeks things have been particularly quiet in the GT camp so you’ll be pleased to know that has changed with an incredible announcement that some, if not all of you here would have read by now and in the event you haven’t read the particular announcement of which I’m referring, you’ll just have to wait just a little bit longer.

The storm is officially on the weather forecast and is slowing building momentum and before long we’re all going to be overwhelmed, such an outcome is inevitable. Is anyone else reminded of the movie “Storm of the Century”?

And now Bruce Nolan with tonight’s news.

GTPlanet Picture of the Week

10211515996_6d0c644d14_z

Normally there would be a description of this week’s featured marvel, but this week’s image coming to us courtesy of eugene2023 speaks for itself; the amount of detail is utterly ridiculous. Look at it!

Have a suggestion for next week’s featured image? Drop me a private message, entitle it “GTPlanet Picture of the Week” and fill it out with your two choices and they’ll be featured in upcoming Rewinds. NOTE: You cannot elect your own work.

Ayrton Senna is Coming to Gran Turismo 6

ayrton-senna-edition-gt6-playstation

Announced just hours ago at the Brazil Game Show in São Paulo a special collaboration between the Ayrton Senna Institute and Gran Turismo 6 which will see “a variety of content” related to Senna coming to the game via DLC. There’s more to this fantastic announcement which you can read about right here.

As many of you will know I’m practically an F1 diehard, I express practically due to the length of time I’ve been watching religiously, which is a little over 5 years. I’ve watched the occasional race here and there beforehand, but I never indulged in the necessary initiative to really learn the sport, the rules and regulations, the dangers, or the drivers. Drivers such as Damon Hill, Ayrton Senna, and Alain Prost are just a select few drivers who raced in a period where my eyes weren’t on F1 programming.

Senna’s ability when driving an F1 race car was a significant talent within a talent; the kind of thing that comes along once in a proverbial “blue moon”. I may not have been fortunate enough to experience his incredible talent before his passing, but with all of the footage I’ve seen his most impressive talent, in my eyes, was his ability or should I say inability to treat a dry and wet track surface as if they were different.

Take a look at this video narrated by former F1 driver Sam Posey where he gives his own personal insight into what made Ayrton Senna so quick. Note: this video was put together around the time the 2010 film “Senna” was premiering.

This is fantastic news for the GT series and is something I’ll be excited to see. As we all should know, while this will be the first official use of not only his likeness but the cars he drove, it won’t be the first time we’ve seen Senna’s cars in a GT game, as that honor firmly rests with Gran Turismo 3.

Will the Interlagos Circuit Be Featured in GT6?

F1-2013

The Interlagos Circuit, home to the Brazilian GP now known as Autódromo José Carlos Pace, was recently acknowledged by Kazunori Yamauchi shortly after the announced partnership, however, Kazunori stopped short of actually confirming whether or not the circuit would be featured in the game. For the entire story you can stop by the official news posting right here.

GTPlanet Weekly Race Series (WRS) Week 140: Super-Cali-Fuji-Listic

wrstitlestimetrials2

Mary Poppins! I’ve a feeling both that joke and this week’s title will mostly fall on deaf ears. Any takers? Moving on, this week is all a group of SuperGT Nissan GT-R invading territory they’re not exactly welcomed in, and with the 518 horsepower powering it’s lightweight aerodynamic shell it’ll be plenty easy to escape those who should oppose the idea of fun.

Fuji Speedway may be owned by Toyota Motor Corporation, but we’re spearheading a virtual Nissan invasion this week. The Calsonic has been used in several arcade mode events, but never with tuning which can bring these GT-Rs to life. Tune out the “stock” under steer and you are in for a real treat this week! All four models drive close to identical so pick your favorite team/livery and hit the track.

  • If you use one of the models requiring ballast be sure to check the ballast is on and at position 0 if you switch tuning sheets. Any submissions without the required weight will be DQ’d.
  • There are areas of the track clean by WRS boundary rules that will get red flagged by the game. As always any system flagged red laps cannot be saved as ghost replays and are considered dirty for this event.
  • All 4 cars (already broken in) are on share from both GTP_3D3Racing and GTP_3D3_C. If you’re not on either friends list, send an FR to GTP_3D3_C, as the main account is close to the limit.

Stop by the official thread here and remember that you NEED to be registered before officially participating in the WRS, and that can only be done by submitting a time for the official GTP Registry Qualifier.

Forza Motorsport 5 – The Roundup Continues

It’s almost zero hour for the Xbox One and it’s AAA launch title Forza Motorsport 5 which means news should begin to pour at a steady rate, which is fantastic news for all of us as we’ll no longer have to wander about in a seamless mystery wondering what’s going to happen next.

Things may have already taken a turn for the better as we’re finally given a look at Spa Francorchamps while behind the wheel of Ferrari’s F12berlinetta, and if you pay close enough attention you’ll spot the KTM X-Bow R – another open-wheeled racing notch in FM5′s belt. For the original capture be sure to stop by Gamespot right here.

R18-E-tron-quattro

This just happened to slip by me last week, and by “this” I’m not referring specifically to the R18 E-tron pictured above, what I’m referring to is the track it’s on – the Top Gear test track. Last week a handful of pictures went up showcasing the special section of the Dunsfield Aerodome in Surrey, England and they’re breathtaking to say the least.

Beyond that continues the weekly reveals for vehicles set to be included in FM5, and the total list up until this point is 110 confirmed vehicles. Today sees the next batch of vehicles set to be included in Forza Motorsport 5′s lucrative list of automotive history, and the list is as follows:

Anyone you’d like to see recognized as the Member of the Week? Drop me a private message, entitle it “GTPlanet Member of the Week” and fill it out with your choices and they’ll be featured in upcoming Rewinds. NOTE: You cannot nominate yourself.

GTPlanet Vehicle of the Week

Ford-Focus-ST_exterior01

The dramatically new Ford Focus ST is the company’s first truly global performance car, building on the heritage of previous Focus ST models in Europe and evolving it to allow drivers around the world to experience and enjoy the exhilarating performance, unrivaled handling, addictive sound and muscular sports design that the ST badge represents.

Taking advantage of innovative design and technology throughout, the Focus ST is powerful and fuel efficient, offering everyday refinement and exhilarating performance when necessary. Powered by Ford’s lightweight all-aluminum 2.0L EcoBoost Inline-4 engine utilizing high pressure direct injection, low-inertia turbocharging and Twin-independent Variable Cam Timing (Ti-VCT), all resulting in the power of a larger engine in a fuel-efficient smaller displacement.

Driving dynamics are at the core of the all-new Focus ST with the newly-developed Ford Sport Steering System, a variable ratio steering rack designed to increase the agility of the Focus ST on winding roads while still inspiring high-speed confidence and stability. The system makes steering less sensitive when driving in a straight line, but increases the sensitivity during cornering.

Working in harmony with the rest of the advancements found in the Focus ST is the finely tuned suspension setup, uprated shock absorbers and springs lower the chassis of the car by 10mm allowing a more aggressive stance, and with a lower center of gravity precision is aided as well.

The Focus ST is offered in three distinctive tirm options – ST1, ST2 and ST3. ST1 is the standard model, offering the key features like cloth Recaro seats, keyless start, front door scuff plates with ST logo and standard ST rear bench with centre armrest. The ST2 builds on this with the addition of partial leather Recaro seats and dual zone Electronic Automatic Temperature Control (EATC), and will also include unique floor mats, automatic headlamp control, auto-dimming rear view mirrors and automatic wipers for right-hand drive markets; features that come as standard on left-hand drive ST1 models.

Finally, there’s the top spec ST3 furthering the features found in the ST2 with heated leather Recaro seats with 8-way adjustability and pull out cushions, the newly developed Recaro rear bench, and Bi-Xenon headlamps for ultimate night time visibility.

GTPlanet Tune of the Week

6h1l

Simply described as fast, fun and easy and the “Perfect online weapon”, this week’s tune, recommended to us by tuning aficionado danbojte and courtesy of praiano63, features the 2009 Lotus Evora tuned to perfection for 450PP outings specifying Sports/Hard compound tires.

Victory is the name of the game as usual and if it’s a deserving victory that you’e after and you want to do so using the lightweight brilliance known only as Lotus, then you’ll want to stop by and see the tune for yourself.

Exactly like the Picture and Vehicle of the Week features, if you have any suggestions for the upcoming Rewinds be sure to drop me a private message, entitle it “GTPlanet Tune of the Week” and let me know. NOTE: You cannot elect your own work.

GTPlanet Photomode Competitions

10452274444_2565c598c5_o

In Week 151 of the Standard and Advanced competitions you are to put your best foot forth and show the community just how seriously you take your in-game photography. All you need to know is as follows:

Week 151, Standard: Heave, Pitch, Roll, Warp, and Yaw - “Soften up that suspension, max out the ballast and let the car move on it’s axles. This is more than just body-roll: this is cornering, braking, accelerating, expansion over the crest, decompression in the dips; take your favourite ride to your favourite track and let the physics take centre stage.

For you technical folk, have a look here to see what on earth I’m on about.”

Week 151, Advanced 2.0: Opposite Lock - “Take your favourite ride to your favourite track and take it over the ragged edge. 

Try and capture that moment where driver control has just dried up, where the rear wants to dress up as the front, and where the front wheels are aggressively angled into the skid.”

For all of the relevant information pertaining to this week’s challenges be sure to stop by here and here.

Photomode Tournament Season 06, Advanced 2.0 - Yet another celebration of the fifth Gran Turismo chapter coming to an end. The qualifying round has just begun, so if you love taking photos and want to engage in this tournament, giving a proper sendoff before GT6 arrives in December, you’d better get a move on as the qualifier closes on the 30th of this month.

You can get the entire rundown by having a look right here.

Closing Thoughts

I’m a bit under the weather (although I am quickly recovering!) so I won’t be gabbing this week.

I’m feeling tons better (I’m not quite at the one-million dollar mark, but I’d say I feel closer to half a million with the only remnant being a nagging tickle in my throat) so let’s talk a little more! You’ll notice an entirely new section about the possibility of Interlagos making it in to GT6 (with a screenshot from F1 2013), and the Vehicle of the Week section has been expanded upon which was something I originally intended for before being published, but alas I didn’t have the proper frame of mind to carry through with it. Improvements are always good, wouldn’t you agree?

For those of you into your fair share of Batman games you will no doubt be aware of Batman: Arkham Origins having made its way into our hearts this past Friday, and I have to be honest, so far I absolutely love it. There’s just something satisfying and joyous about methodically smashing in the faces of the many villains looming about Gotham City on Christmas Eve.

I may be playing this on the PC but I assure you if anyone should be jealous it’s me because every one of you guys who have this for the PS3 are going to get the Knightfall DLC, which of course includes Jean Paul Valley’s mechanical Azrael-infused batsuit.

Batman-AO

Looking at the picture above you may be wondering to yourself what it is that I have to be jealous of when Arkham Origins on the PC looks like that, but I’m a comic book guy and it eats me up knowing that I may never get to go through what is perhaps one of my all-time favorite Batman story arcs. If any of you have seen The Dark Knight Rises which is very, very, very loosely based on KnightSaga then you’ll have an idea of where I’m coming from.

I enjoy coming back to the Rewind every once in a while and giving it a good refresh, given the refresh has enough merit and is not just me yammering about because that can be saved for the following week. Don’t I talk enough as it is?

Another thing that I intended to do was mention the official GTP Weekly Rewind thread. Seriously, it’s pretty empty in there so do feel free to post some ideas or what have you, or to even treat it as a place to discuss the articles week in and week out. That was its intended purpose.

How many times have I said “intended” right now? I’ll intend to never say “intended” again.

Now a message from our sponsor, me:

While you’re salivating at the very thought of Gran Turismo 6 finding itself into your PlayStation 3 this coming December why not take the time to become a full-fledged member of our wonderful community. It’s free and we have cake! Okay, we don’t have cake (the cake is and always will be a lie, remember this!) but we do have a strong community and we’re always talking about something interesting. If you aren’t already a member you should join today and maybe you can work out a patented antidote for “Lying Cake Syndrome”. Seriously, it’s been years since I’ve had cake.

My shameless Twitter plug has also returned!

Once again I forgot to mention that I’m on Twitter now. What was once going to be a bit of parody account (because I don’t use Facebook or Twitter for any reason whatsoever) has quickly turned into me using Twitter rather effectively. So, follow me and suggest all things Rewind-worthy from the comfort of your tablets, phones, or Skynet-linked computers. Remember, when the machines finally rise you’ll need someone to write pieces regarding the matter littered with Armageddon-y undertones and I can be just that guy! What were we talking about? Right, Twitter, so if you’ll follow me here the Rewind can be delivered to you in a timely fashion not seen since snail mail. Wait, that’s not the right thing to say!

You will be showered in Rewind, Seasonal Event and future article goodness courtesy of yours truly, so there’s that worth looking forward to once I’ve bothered to get the thing up and running. It can also be used to suggest things for upcoming Rewinds, so that’s now two ways you all can keep me on my toes.

Ayrton Senna is going to be featured in GT6! Next month I am going to have several hundred holes in my wallet and it’s conjoining pocket. Until next week, keep racing!

    What’s that you say, the Rewind has gotten longer? No, that’s not what she said!

    Rewind has been updated. Read up, folks. Should be easy enough to spot the new bits.

  2. PS3LUV3R

    One thing I really like about Forza is the ca lineup. They include all of the cars I want to see in GT games. The cars people really want in a game like this, supercars! F50, GTO, etc. I think they have a much more fun focused car lineup.

  3. Nato_777

    No I don’t and I don’t ever use the chase cam but a lot of casual players do and the current GT one is rubbish.

    • Nato_777

      Darn phone – supposed to be a reply to my earlier post.

  4. Mr C5 Z06 Vette

    Wow the f12 berlinetta is an ugly car but in an awesome in your face, i’m gonna kick your @$$ type of way i’m loving it

  5. Nato_777

    [Forza video] – this is how to do a chase cam Kaz!

    • Magic Ayrton

      Kaz is making a simulator.. do you drive a road car from behind? Nope.

    • PepeMickey

      It’s still a game and games are supposed to be fun, what do you care anyway?

    • Johnnypenso

      Lots of people use the chase cam for driving. I don’t drive cars from behind but none of my cars ever sounded like vacuums either, nor have I ever driven a car beyond the limits of physics and then had an invisible magic hand (SRF) keep me on the track. A great deal of this game bears no resemblence to real life. It’s a game, the “simulator” part is just marketing.

  6. PepeMickey

    Wow, FM5 looks incredible.

  7. ajrichar

    That Forza video looks fantastic! I’ve never played Forza (apart from the pick up and play in electronics stores – hate the controller) and Forza has never grabbed me. But that Spa video looks brilliant. Looking at the cars in that race, I can really see a convergence in the range of cars between the GT and Forza series – Vipers, R35 GT-Rs, Yellow Birds etc.

    I’m not that interested in the Senna connection unless GT actually does something with it properly. GT5 had a NASCAR licence, WRC licence and Top Gear licence and didn’t use any of them properly. Forza seems to have used their connection to Top Gear far more effectively. So, if the Senna connection isn’t done properly – cars, helmets, driving suits and some special events – then it’ll just be a puff piece to generate more sales for the game but leave fans disappointed.

    Great picture of the week with that Mazda too. Stunning! GT is still ‘My Favourite Game.’

  8. sailworksman

    Finally, the first gameplay video that does the game justice (FM5). No racing line, and someone who actually knows what they are doing!

  9. roamer2629

    I’m turning 40 next year and my dad (who passed away almost 20 years ago) and me used to watch the Senna Vs Prost battles at the edge of our seat. I was a Prost fan at that time, but was always amazed at how Senna could always go a little faster than everyone else, and was way too young to know about Ballestre and the politics of the sport. I cant race Suzuka without a remembering those two crashes, at the chicane and the first turn, that decided the championship twice…
    Give us a McLaren F-1 for any of those seasons and I tattoo Kazunori’s face in one of my arms…

  10. GRAN_TURISMAN

    I hope you feel better soon T-12!

  11. GRAN_TURISMAN

    Awesome rewind! That mazda pic is amazing! The level of detail has impressed me in GT6! I can’t wait for GT6!

    • GRAN_TURISMAN

      Oops I ment the level of detail in GT5 has amazed me!

  12. I’ve played all the Forza games, I’m not a fanboy of either GT or Forza, I just like car games. But, you think with the power of the xbox one, you think they would of fixed a issue that’s been in Forza forever…..

    Outside view, notice the mirrors. The side mirror on the right, shows the reflection of what the left mirror should show and vice versa. That makes me question what else haven’t they touched. That’s pretty sad that’s still there in next gen.

  13. Terronium-12

    I may very well add a bit more to this over the weekend, stay tuned!

  14. Quigz125

    Amazing the picture of the week. Hard to believe it came from a game. They’ve come a long way graphically.

  15. Blood*Specter

    Ayrton Senna is a watered down, poor man’s version of……..GOD.

    And just in case some are not understanding what I’m trying to say….Senna was simply born to drive…fast and well. To see him handle a car was simply jaw dropping and delightful.
    He was the master.

    Dale Earnhardt Senior had the same gift of being one with a car……ANY car.

  16. forzaturismo

    Forza 5!!!!!!!!!!

    • TokoTurismo

      Yes. It looks pretty, doesn’t it? ;)

    • HuskyGT

      Youtube doesn’t do justice. It might look better in person. However I still notice “toony” animations in the cockpit camera. Other than that, the game looks very nice.

  17. Am i on GTplanet or Umplanet? …just asking… ;)

  18. Good choice for VotW…my friend has a black ST, and it’s a fun car.

  19. ameer67

    Great Rewind (as usual), Mr. T!

    The title of this rewind just brought back waves of nostalgia for me xD

    T-10 supposedly Kaz has advised Interlagos will be added to the game, is there anything you or Jordan or Famine have heard on the grapevine or something more concrete you can advise through your “regular” channels of info. If this is the case surely PD will be announcing this post haste if he did say it at the BGS.

    Damm Forza 5 looks amazing,the colors really pop and the atmosphere feels very alive, thats one thing that GT lacks,you can also hear individual car notes,I can almost name every car he comes near with my eyes closed.

      Same floaty physics though?

    • Steph290

      That’s in part due to the processing power. If GT can bring the environment “alive” instead of a static feeling background that would be a plus. And yeah, the physics still look a bit arcade like in FM5, but I’m still curious to hear from an unbiased review what the physics feels like on a professional setting.

    • Swagger897

      at least they have a bit of a proper tire model

      Never, ever understood these ”floaty physic” statements. I mean there must be something there I don’t get ’cause so many people talks about it but I play a lot of car games and do 6-8 trackdays every summer and I don’t get what people mean by that.

    • HuskyGT

      I interpret “Floaty physics” as the cars not giving you sense of weight. It’s all very… “Floaty.” Gran Turismo is not perfect, but it does a better job at that.

      Overall, animations still look a bit artificial. Still looks like the best option after Gran Turismo though. Awesome sounds as always. And finally they got red right!

      i interrupt “floaty physic” as people talking out their rear, I too play GT and Forza and what ever else i can get my hands on along with 1/4 trips at the drag strip and random runs on back roads. I don’t feel the floaty, that the local experts feel.

    • BoneSawTX

      interpret*

    • Magic Ayrton

      Bonesaw, just shutup douche.

    • Steph290

      I know, the jerk had to ruin the positive feedback. Anyway to add to what Husky said, it is in part due to the weight of the car not being accurately translated into the tires/road, but I always say its so noticeable due to Forza’s “perfect road” modeling. Because the road surface is flawlessly flat in all areas, when a car gets up to speed it appears/feel as if its a hovercraft “floating” above the ground, and that is an honest observation.

    • BoneSawTX

      about the response i expected from an expert. Btw I’ve played FM5, no floating but please carry on. I love to read physics discussions with 12 Y.O.

    Good work T-10 another quality weekly rewind!

    Forza 5 is looking sensational from that Spa vid, very impressive work.

    Sennasational news for GT6, looking forward to seeing Interlagos coming to GT (apparently KY has advised this at the Brazil game show) and hopefully some of the cars as well

    • Magic Ayrton

      What if that’s the Brazilian version only?

    • sayba2th

      “An Ayrton Senna Limited Edition PlayStation 3 bundle will also be sold in Brazil, which will include a copy of GT6 along with the Anniversary Edition cars and bonus in-game credits”. The Interlagos track would be available in all regions as per all other tracks should this be “officially” confirmed

    Thank you GTP!

  26. What storm?

  27. SnakeOfBacon

    The release is so soon!
    Can’t wait to see how they integrate the Senna stuff

    • Mr C5 Z06 Vette

      SnakeofBacon? Youtube snakeofbacon if so I think that you do great reviews and you should do a gt4 review nxt. This is coming from a sub

    • SnakeOfBacon

      *gasp* someone here knows me from my channel? wow! Thankyou very much, I wasn’t actually working on a GT4 review at the moment, I’m sure I will eventually. I was going to do Tokyo Highway Challenge (Tokyo Xtreme Racer) for the Dreamcast next, but I will absolutely do GT4, GTConcept, Tourist Trophy etc. eventually.

    • Mr C5 Z06 Vette

      Awesome

    • research

      Sega Dreamcast FTW!
