Yeah, I haven't played GT5 for a long time. I have a somewhat short attention span, so I find it hard to get into the racing mood. With that said, when I'm in the zone... SPEED RACER!!!

That smilie reminds me of a C&H Video:

Had a couple of awesome races on GT5 online yesterday morning with some other locals (and a few people joining from other countries). Played a bunch of Shuffles on London, Monaco and Rome (which I got a podium and a first on a few of those). The Nordschleife came up as well and 4 of us were given RUFs, and three of those were Yellow Birds (I was in one!)
I spun out early on in the race so I decided to go the other way to the end of the home straight and offer people free slipstreams Very Happy= :D
Btw, what are your guys thoughts on the DLC? TBH I think it's pretty stupid, $5 for Spa and a go-kart track that will give someone epilepsy. And a bunch of cars that are practically RM'd (and a few Go-Karts). The only thing that will keep my liking GT5 is Kaz tweeting saying "I wanted it to be cheaper but Sony f***ed up and made you guys pay for it."
I don't even want to know how much an Original Tracks pack will be.

*tear*

I don't mind the DLC offer, just the pricing isn't too crash hot. I really like the 2.0 intro though Very Happy= :D

It's good, the border is a great idea, but I found myself looking at the border more than the car. So in a way it kind of detracts from the car itself. If that makes sense... Then again, I'm no expert either. Laughing

I updated GT5 last night. Five updates, probably collectively 2GB to download.

I feel really sorry for someone who hasn't bought this game new and hasn't updated it regularly. Between the updates and the install people could be waiting a long time to actually start playing this game.

I want to get the DLC, but It's $22 for the full pack here compared to $15 converted if I get it from my US account (although I have no way of getting funds onto it). I don't play GT5 that much for me to want a Prius TC Laughing

It was $18.95 here in Aus, but really, sort of not worth the money.
The original PDI go kart is a 100cc whereas the three in the dlc are jnr. (about 50 cc), 100cc (only difference is a cosmetic headlight and tail light) and 125cc. So really all you're getting (in terms of go karts) are a kids version and a 125cc. All the other cars are quite unique and shiny, but that's all I feel they are... Shiny. Sure they're upgradeable and all, but it still needs a little extra something, like some already in game car tickets would have made it just that little bit better. X2011 is just as intense as an X2010, and looks a tad bit better, but still the same car... I mean, monster! XD

Paint chips and tracks are probably the best part of the DLC. 10 new types of paints including chrome, gray, gunmetal, japanese, metallic, military, Old GT gen, pastel tones, polarized and fluoro colours makes amazing combinations. Plus ten different colours of each type make a ton of amazing looking cars look even better. It would be cool if you could win some more dlc paint chips after the purchase in game so you're not only limited to one colour, EVER.
The two tracks... All I can say is, wow... Spa may not seem all that, but both are so balanced and perfect for GT5 that I may just go to Spain just to visit this track. Kart space in combination with the mix of karts can make it a family orientated game, but still leaves it fun for those who want a challenge.

The racing gear is actually quite fun to mix and match. If Kaz does intend to make an online based GT world like PS home for example, it will be interesting to see more put into this. Until then, I am the Stig!
Spoiler:
 

Also, seeing as the dlc is only available to the account that purchased it, the cars are still giftable, I think.

My mini dlc coverage/review = over. I'll also be adding you, Dan, after posting this up. Maybe we can organise a sixthnation GT5 race, if we can get enough people interested.

The second half of the Spec II Intro is epic. I so badly want that 5OUL ON D!SPLAY remix, just without the engine noises Sad
Oh, and I added you on my GT5 account O Lover of Ninjas Smile

Thanks for the add and I agree, that intro is awesome... I still feel we could have done with this as the initial intro though

The Japanese one is just so much better cuz "Moon Over the Castle" is in it. I mean, Soul on Display is a cool song, but Moon has been in the games since the first GT. I was sad when I didn't hear it in the GT 5 opening when I first bought the game.

I know what you mean... I was thinking "Well, if it's not in the intro, maybe it's in the credits."
*unlocks 1st ending - no Moon Over The Castle*
Sad Better be in 2nd ending...
*unlocks 2nd ending - still no Moon*

Hey Daniel, I've been using your shared B-spec driver in some remote races. Check to see how much dosh you won!! cheers Also, there might be a large jump in your b-spec level. I went 6-12 in one race, then 12-16 in 2 more. You've won 1/4 so far... Cool

I must've been in some hypnotised/drunken/stoned state but I actually have bought GT5 again!

Pssh, why would you think I bought it for racing? Razz
