    Gran Turismo 5

    The game just crashed on me in B-Spec mode, the first time I've had a PS3 game crash. LOL.

    Gran Turismo 5

    In B-Spec, I found that tuning my Miata so it doesn't oversteer is very important to my racer's success. The car is supercharged, but less than 200hp. I immediately command him to overtake (which usually gets them to 2nd or 3rd place), then cool off his pace for a bit before trying to overtake...

    Gran Turismo 5

    As person who loves the cockpit mode, the standards don't cut it for me. For example, why can't they throw in the Premium's cockpit into a Standard car? For example, a MX5 interior will look the same, despite it being '89 or a '97. Likewise for a GT-R32 and a GTR-32 Vspec II. I would even...

    The AI is very underwhelming so far. Hopefully that improves with the higher tier race series.

    Depends on the car, but that does sound slow. In my stock '89 Miata at practice, I managed a 1:55. A nice rendering of my favorite track, but iRacing's is far superior.

    Gran Turismo 5

    I went into that race not knowing I was outclassed. It was tight, but I only managed to finish 4th. It was a real dirty race though. I don't think I will waste money to upgrade a Vitz at this point.

    I was not impressed by that night-time race. It really reminds me of GT2. Have you noticed that cars in your review mirrors don't have headlights on? Looking backwards shows that they do. The headlights should really be causing a blinding effect in the mirrors to convey realism.

    Got mine before I went to work. Although it's really sucks to know GT5-goodness is sitting in my trunk while I still have to be in the office for another 5+ hours. Surprisingly big and heavy box. Good sign.

    How do you intend to play GT5?

    That doesn't look anywhere near stable enough for a wheel. Needs more cross bracing or something (maybe at the bottom?). The keyboard tray doesn't look strong enough and the desk part may be too tall.

    It's available for streaming on History Channel's website, surprisingly.

    Gran Turismo 5

    That looks incredible. Remember that Namco game, R: Racing Evolution? There was a system in the game in which you can cause the driver in front of you to lose their nerve and make mistakes if you stick on their tail for a while. I always wanted an aspect of that in GT - the beginner level races...

    I enjoyed it. I can see the three growing into their roles and becoming more natural. A solid 6 for me. Rate it against the last season of Top Gear, I would say they're not that different in the entertainment factor. I'm getting tired of the ultra-scripted stunts by the Clarkson May and Hammond...

    Gran Turismo 5

    The first full release of GT on a new system is always the lesser release. This is nothing new. I had hoped that they considered GT5P a full release, but it's clearly not the case.

    Test Drive Unlimited 2: Wanna get dirty?

    I just assumed because people were playing the TU2 beta in the previous pages that I didn't get in. Is the PS3 beta still forthcoming?

    Test Drive Unlimited 2: Wanna get dirty?

    Dangit, I applied for the beta way back when. I guess I didn't get in.
