In Other News – November 30, 2010

1 min read


It’s the last day of November and summer is in full swing, which means that there are sweaty gamers grossing up TV rooms across the nation. So please, be kind to those around you, use deodorant and don’t forget to shower every now and then.

We have a lot of great goodies in the ION today, ranging from an awesome cosplay gallery of Samus as well as a video link of a comedian’s segment about how much he hates the crouch button in games.

Here’s the news we didn’t post because we were catching word thieves in the act again. Sies!

    Damn, get out of here you spammer, pedophile!
    Anyway, I was going to comment on the fantastic header image, but Mr Hinds recently informed me about the news in the ION post.
    So… very interesting stuff there! 😀

    Kazunori Yamauchi has been fielding questions from fans on Twitter over the past few hours. The tweets are in Japanese, but with a little help from Google and medhi_san, we can get a pretty good idea of what he’s talking about. Here’s the highlights:

    * Flexible camera angles and “dynamic and wide-area lighting needs” are to blame for the sometimes blocky shadows. Yamauchi admits they are a problem and wants to improve them.
    * Yamauchi appears to consider the possibility of removing the in-game HUD (heads-up-display features) at some point in the future.
    * To unlock the Red Bull X1, you’ll need to complete the “Sebastian Vettel Challenge”, which appears at Level 30.
    * Online “lounge” functionality and other features will be added “one by one”.
    * Polyphony Digital continues to work on fully supporting the Logitech G25 and G27, though Yamauchi admits he would like a “new steering device soon”…
    * Mechanical damage options will be implemented in a new update for GT5 coming “early December”.
    * As you may know, many players noticed that GT5’s face-tracking functionality only worked in Arcade mode. According to Yamauchi, it’s not available in GT mode due to memory issues with the PS3.
    * In-game rewards (such as the monetary prize in GT5 Prologue) for your performance in online events is something Polyphony Digital is considering, and may be implemented in a future update.
    * Gran Turismo 5’s official, 2-disc sound-track will be released soon.
    * Yamauchi wanted to implement a “free roam” gameplay mode in GT5, where players could drive around, respecting speed limits and obeying traffic laws, and even exit the car to walk around and explore the environment on foot.
