Weekly Racing Video Game News Episode 28: Senna-sational

Martin Bigg On June 3, 2014

In this week's better-late-than-never Weekly Racing Video Game News round-up, Gran Turismo 6 steals the spotlight once again with what we consider to be the most anticipated update in Gran Turismo history: the long-awaited Ayrton Senna Tribute, starring Senna's racing kart, Formula Three car and Lotus 97T.

Not to be outdone, Forza Motorsport 5 struck back with one of its best updates yet. The Bondurant car pack added a slew of previously unseen supercars, including the debut of the Corvette C7 Stingray to the Forza Franchise.

Elsewhere, Fanatec continue to bombard us with new racing peripherals with not one, not two, not three, but four new products, including something that might just be revolutionary to DIY sim racing enthusiasts

All this and more can be found in the TeamVVV Weekly Racing Video Game News round-up embedded below. As always, links to all articles discussed in the video can also be found below.

The screenshots look like photos, never underestimate the power of realistic looking trees. Assetto Corsa can we have these now please? 2D trees are so last year. Seriously though, this looks (graphically) a lot better than WRC 5 and given Milestone's background in racing games the physics are more likely to be decent. Haven't really see what Kylotonn can do though so I'm keeping an open...

I still play SBK2000 and SBK2001 regularly. Physics is pretty good but imo not quite as realistic as gp500. There are two camps on that argument dating all the way back to 2001! wink I agree SBK2001 is pretty good but the more you grow accustomed to the physics of motogp14 on the limit with no riding aids whatsoever and zero or low tcs plus a decent set-up the more one realises that motogp14 is...

Reason I misunderstood you Travis is that Dorna have already confirmed to Milestone that they are retaining the motogp licence for 2015. Milestone have already started work on motogp15. In fact they have been working on this for quite some time now as I understand it. Also we at xbla are provisionally lined up to commernce a beta testing programme on the game. We have been running monthly Q&A...

Here's a recent example (one of many) in which Milestone have listened to us and have acknowledged that improvements are needed in motogp14:

By the way, and I don't really endorse this concept myself (I would rather Milestone dropped it) the whole idea to combat the understeer in motogp14 is to use a manula "tuck" button. Hey presto..no understeer. Use the "tuck" as you come off the brakes and get on the power. 

Personally I would much rather Milestone dropped the manual tuck requirement though. There is no manual "tuck" in...
