It's insane that the rally events, the co-drivers notepad actually does have the correct directions on it.

In. Sane. I couldn't get over it when I noticed it.

its sad that they put so much detail in the interior but didnt include a feature in photomode to take pics of the interior

Kaz doesn't like to brag I suppose. It was like the illzone 2 developer interview where he said

'Well we decided to texture this area in the distance and render it in 3D, it's on a static image.'

To which the interviewer said

'So will the player go to that area?'

And with such swathe he replied

'No, in fact the player won't be able to see this at any time, you only notice this stuff in-dev and in all honesty we just like the bigger CPU numbers'

I love that side of development where people do stuff not just for money or because they where told but rather because they can. Just so damn funny.

I wish I could think of more examples, it's just so funny when an interviewer ask about it and is left with no plausible followup.

I bet there's soo many games out there with just quirky little feature nobobdy ever hears about, all indev. I'd love a game to be released on console with this indev stuff left in and feature like

-Real time HDR
-Cell shaded option
-God mode

I bet several singleplayer games also got tested for multiplayer just because they could. If I got a job developing a game I'd make it so that 90% that could be accessed was just for me and the remaining 10% was just a HD remake of Star control 2 in the sins of a solar empire engine and combat style (P.S I'd leave the in-game drawings in for cutscenes but have them upressed or re-drawn but EXACTLY how they where, with the same voices )

P.P.S I just sold you on my Star Control 2 game, named The Ur-quan Masters : Star Control 2. If interested developers just MAKE IT HAPPEN!

This is what someone wrote to me in an article earlier today:

"Substance101  +   10h ago
@shadow flare

Did you watch the GT5 trailers as well? lol id say the final product is no where close to what Sony was trying to pose in the trailers. Take trailers from Sony with a grain of salt.

laughs at Sony fangirls."

Hmm. I dont feel I need to say anymore after reading this article. Just wanted to share the stupidity of some people with you all. It's ironic that I was discussing with Substance101 pc vs console power. Yet the graphical detail of GT5 (especially regarding this article) could easily make it the best looking racing game on pc. If it were on pc.

Even rating this game a 9 is BS. If you use the same standards that are used to rate other racers out there like Need for Speed, Forza, etc etc there is no way this game is not a 10/10 unanimously.

Even those that hate the PS3 and were happy GT5 was getting shafted w/ reviews could see there was something not quite right even though the loved the treatment GT5 was getting.

This gen has really nonsensical reviewing. They just don't give a damn just give them ad space dollars and they'll give your game easy 9s and sheep will follow.

Nope. I glanced over in cockpit mode in one of the rally events, had whatever written on it I assumed it was just generic scribblings, then it started, he was saying what he had on the notepad on a randomly generated track... it's, as I said, insane.

lh_swe2950d ago

It does explain why this game took soo long to make though...I am a person who loves those kinds of details though so I aint complaining :)

thor2950d ago

Yeah the rally mode has some really nice touches - great attention to detail.

It's just a shame that for every little bit of detail I notice, there is also a massive gaping hole in some other area of the game. I think I would have preferred a decent A-spec mode (you know, with actual challenge and no grinding) rather than to know that my co-driver has written the correct directions on his notepad.

Bathyj2950d ago

You've got a couple billion dollars worth of cars to save up for, how the hell are they supposed to take grinding out of the game?

DigitalAnalog2950d ago

So I can assume you're able to get gold in the Expert and above events?

-End of Line

I went on the first race in the extreme series just to try it and I zoomed in front of the competition; it was as easy as the sunday cup. Every race in A-spec prior to this that I tried was just as easy (even the single-make races such as the Gallardo trophy once I'd installed new tyres in my car).


You're not taking enough steps back. If you implement a system where you need to buy cars at roughly real-world prices, and the prizes you win for single races are also realistic (well they're not really), you're going to have grinding that's true.

But it doesn't have to be like that, does it. So many other games unlock cars rather than you having to buy them. Even GT5 does this it's just it doesn't unlock the cars you need for the races. In fact GT5 doesn't even need to have a garage - it could simply give you the cars you need for the races and the challenge could come from the other drivers rather than from the grind.

You're hanging onto this archaic system which necessitates grinding and easy races, when it could use a much better system. In fact GT5 does have a better system for the special events, at least most of them, where it gives you the car you need. Then there is some actual challenge (and in fact it's quite tough).

I was doing this earlier taking interior screenies but i couldnt get thru the side windows to get the full-on good upclose. Hopefully this will help.
