Now the analogue nub on my PSP is too damaged for Gran Turismo, so it's just Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny.

Finished my annual play through of Advance Wars on the GBA... Need to find part two under my goodies mess....

In the mean time I'm playing Racing Gears Advance. This is too hard... It's fun but lots of frustration involved. Makes Neo Drift Out feel like Teletubbies.


And also.. Sonic All Stars Racing Transformed, on the Vita. Just as good as the best Mario Kart.

Gran Turismo 6

It took almost 4 days to download all the updates this game has got. :problem:
Now I'm asking myself why did I waste so much time on something so uninspired and frankly just boring. This game hasn't evolved at all in the past 15 years and some parts of it are still lifted form GT4 wholesale and it shows.

From 1-4 I really loved this series but now I'm at best indifferent to it. Luckily it was a free gift from play-asia and I did not pay money for that.

You know.... Gran Turismo has always been boring.... I dunno why people think otherwise. I mean it was great when it first came out (and the 2nd one) it was one hell of a time. But it's always been utterly boring compared to the likes of MSR, Project Gotham, Ridge Racer, Sega Rally and do I need to mention Mario Kart and Forza? Fuggedaboutit.

I know Gran Turismo has a lot of depth etc... But it's like Caviar... more than highly regarded, though nowhere near as satisfying as a KFC.

Yes, all true. But this one feels like they completely lost their plot and forgot to make a once compelling game. There are some cars lifted straight out of Gran Truism 3 in there and they look amazingly rubbish. It seems to me that everything they could realize with the formula they achieved already with GT4 and now all they do is treading water which gets muddier and muddier :(

GT hasn't been that great since this one.



Also finding Forza 6 dull. Driveclub is the best racer out there at the moment. A 6/10 on release, a 9/10 gem now.

It's embarrassing but I've been playing GT6 since my last posting in this thread :oops: and I don't even know why because there isn't much fun to be had besides Sennas old F1 Lotus. Guess I'm playing this out of habit which is a bit scary.

Oh well I'm 80% done so I can put it away soon. :lolno:

Dabbling in and out of three different games atm.

Zelda skyward sword

Gunbird 2

New SMB Wii U

All are very good games, the motion controls on zelda have actually grown on me now.

Took about 15hrs to really start getting into it though and does require practice to get it right, my tips are sit up straight and only move the controller a litte, Do not swing it around like an idiot (like I did :oops: )

Gunbird 2 .. really tough but im chipping away slowly , whole different beast to cave games but still fun

Mario.. Nice game starts off slow but really gets going on the later levels , as long as you dont use any of the helping hand stuff Nintendo keeps putting in there games lately (helping blocks and golden suits Iin 3D World) I know thats ment to help kids play but seriously cant they just add a kids mode or something.

Also the speedrun trials are loads of fun.

Finished GT6 @ 96%, all stars, all gold, can't be bothered to play those stupid Vettel/Red Bull missions as I hate both with a passion. Game was no fun and felt more like a chore. Also: load times, clipping, pop-ups, frequent framerate drops, cars and environment lifted straight out of GT4 and being totally unengaging as a whole makes this for the foreseeable future my last Gran Turismo game.

I must be thick to have wasted my time with this.

i find myself like this with most racing games these days , granted i havent bothered with the latest GT OR forza yet ,but i have always found that they go like this ,start real slow, **** cars that can barely pass a flying bee .. then you get to the better cars where the racing is dull the only thing you have to worry about is keeping it some bit on the road ......then to just not giving a **** about the rest of the game :lol: mk8 is where its at :P

On PC i play Assetto Corsa, Project Cars and iracing and on Xbox one Forza 6. Do i play something else on the PC? Not much except MAME and Killing Floor 2 8-) .
I don't get it how people can compare Gran Tourismo with something like Project Gotham, Ridge Racer, Sega Rally. It's something completely different. On one side we have a "Simulation" and on the other side arcade racer games.
