PlayStation Informer: "Some videos of mechanical damage in GT5 introduced by the patch v1.03."
and they implemented it so easily and quickly... I think they had it ready but they didn't know whether people would want mechanical damage or not.
Actually, it's more than that, but the secret will be revealed in time...
Why don't you tell us then?
I just realized this is mechanical damage... I thought it was just damage because when that car went 130 into the wall with a couple of minor dents I was like WTF!
GOOD now people can STFU... but wait the menus are too....STFU enjoy driving the best cars in the best sim. BTW this was in the code so it was in the game. just saying
... but he rammed straight into a wall and the car was fine. That's fail fail fail fail fail fai- *spontaneously combusts* On a serious note, was this an online race?
ok so play forza and crash a sticker with damage is put over the car...A STICKER so you can STFU as well worse part is it pop in after the crash
Would be kinda hard for me to play forza without owning an xbox. I'll try a find a sim for the PC though. Thanks for the suggestion. =) (Are we being sarcastic or serious?)
i see very well then
You were being sarcastic. That was obvious. I'm pretty sure that went right over trounbyfire's head though...
they should have unlocked the level 40 damage then tried it out... though that system was a mistake to put in the unlockable damage to begin with.
troubnyfire: "ok so play forza and crash a sticker with damage is put over the car...A STICKER so you can STFU as well" Just in case you are really that clueless, Forza has damage where parts fall off as well. Bumpers, wings, splitters, mirrors, all fall off. Hoods crumple. As far as scratches go, yes, it's a texture.
GT5 FTW. Kaz wont stop the patching, and Dan Greenawald is going to get bigger bags under his eyes trying to find a way to stop the freight train that GT5 is. It will sell for a long long time!
Who is this Dan you speak of?
Dan, the creator of microsofts rival simulator Forza. Fanboys can have their tug of war, luckily for me I own both consoles so enjoy the best of both worlds. I put 150hours into forza3 and will no doubt put a similar amount into GT5. Both great games, period.
He's my dad... i disowned him since he made Forza
Thank you Si-Fly and thank you for making me snigger redDevil. Sorry to hear he is your father does he beat you if he catches you playing GT5 lol.
Why would the creators of Forza care anymore? Their game came out a year ago, and they are well on the way of making the 4th one.
It looked like it worked like it should. I am only driving in cockpit, so if this comes it the career-GT mode, then it is of greater importance than visual(graphic) damage to me. Keep up the patching. Still want more Premiums.
Why is it limited to online only? Can someone explain this to me? I'm really just asking. Btw, and I really don't want to troll, but those video mostly show incredibly bad VISUAL damage (sound, physics, etc, everything is so off)! Well at least now there are mechanical ones, but I still think PD should improve the visual ones.
Probably to balance out online racing. Prevent people from going all bumper-cars and whatnot. From what people say, single-player already has that damage. Just gotta level up.
I thought this rumour had been debunked by Sony and PD themselves. They clearly said damages were not unlocked by leveling-up. Maybe they were talking visual ones and not mechanical ones.
Well it already costs half a million to repair a Bugatti so I am guessing it won't just be to fix the bumper...
No one can explain it.... I would guess because, online... it's to stop bumper cars and people forcing bumper cars.... Why not offline? Welcome to the world of Polyphony Digital where nothing makes sense.
Whilst I do like this game I have to agree it is most disappointing it is not in the single player as it will stop people from cheating.
I wasn't aware that what people do in the privacy of their own gaming space would effect your life so much. If people want to play bumper cars at home by themselves, let them.
Agree with Biggest. I would like to have that choice to have mechanical damage or not. Great freedom is mostly paralell to games with high longlivety. And im not talking about freedom like in open-world games.
good game getting better :)
Great damage hopefully we may see gear and clutch damage like Forza but I am very happy this is in! This game is certainly heading in the right direction good work PD.
Hmm 2 disagrees would that be about the Forza comment? Well sorry folks but Forza has some cool damage mechanics as well...just saying not trolling. I want GT5 to improve on what Forza does so I can wipe it in the face of those who mock GT5 constantly. Look at my comments history I only want what is best for GT5. Unless you have disagreed with GT5 being great not perfect but great... in which case provide constructive criticism or bugger off.
hummmmmmmmm well said ryesher i just picked up forza 3 and i can see what GT5 had to live up 2 .Forza is near Perfect.Both games are great in there own way though
I am hoping the mechanical damage will become like Forza 3.
Why didn't they just delay the game for about a week and implement this? They must have really not cared about the metacritic score.
Only fanboys trolls, haters and people who don't know nothing about games care about review score.
I'm not a fan of GT or any racing game for that matter but I picked up GT5 and the Game Stop steering wheel to give a try. Hands down best racing game I've ever played. I thought the demo sucked and it doesn't do the whole game justice. It's fun and easy to pick up and get into. It's hard to put it down if you don't place 1st!
I Guess you never played Forza 3 have you.The game is near Perfect as far as i see.GT5 must be Great as well .Hope they fixs all those Bugs though b/c GT5 could be a Perfect game if they did.
I tried the Forza demo and thought it sucked too. Which makes me wonder if the whole game isn't represented fully by the demo? I think GT5 is enough for now. I've seen some pretty good things about forza so it's probably the fact I'm not big on racing games that ruins the demos for me.
Still looks terrible. Has anyone ever hot a wall at 90+ mph?? It would cause much more damage then that.
At least it way better than instant paint scratches.
