Gran Turismo 5 has seen lots of post-release support in the form of updates to the game as well as seasonal events. There hasn’t been much DLC yet, and it’s been a long time since we’ve seen any impactful updates. That’s about to change though.
Kazunori Yamauchi, creator of the Gran Turismo franchise tweeted earlier today that GT5 Spec 2.0 update will be coming in the 3rd week of October, followed one week later by DLC. Nothing else is known at this time, but hopefully it will be big.
But what does big mean? Will we see some new cars? New tracks? Some standard cars made into premium? Will it include trophies? It could be many things. I hope we’ll see little bit of everything. New tracks would be the most important thing, but it would definitely be sweet with some new cars and trophies to. Maybe some more A/B-Spec events to.
I can’t wait to hear more about what this will contain. I’m exited anyway!
Uncharted 3 went gold last week, and that also meant that the hunt for the trophy list was on. Bro Gamer Blog found it in an unlikely place. They played Uncharted 3 Multiplayer at EuroGamer Expo and they filmed the list.
They’ve used much less space for treasures than in the two other games. I think that is a good thing as it opens up for more interesting trophies. You still have to collect them all though. I will make video guides for them so you needn’t worry.
Combat Trophies – 24 trophies (17 Bronze, 7 Silver) – 465 points Survivor (Silver) – Defeat 75 enemies in a row without dying Combat Leapfrog (Silver) – Defeat 10 enemies in a row, alternating hand-to-hand combat and gunplay 20 Headshots (Bronze) – Defeat 20 enemies with headshots 100 Headshots (Silver) – Defeat 100 enemies with headshots Headshot Expert (Bronze) – Defeat 5 enemies in a row with headshots Side Arm Master (Bronze) – Defeat 30 enemies in a row with your side arm Reload Master (Silver) – Defeat 50 enemies in a row without auto-reloading Rolling Ammo Master (Silver) – 20 times in a row, pick up ammo while rolling Blindfire Marksman (Bronze) – Defeat 20 enemies by blind-firing while in cover (without aiming with L1) Run-and-Gunner (Bronze) – Defeat 20 enemies by shooting from the hip (without aiming with L1) Hangman (Bronze) – Defeat 20 enemies with gunfire by aiming while hanging Land Shark (Bronze) – Defeat 20 enemies while swimming Pro-Pain (Bronze) – Defeat 10 enemies with propane of acetylene tank explosions Dyno-Might Master (Silver) – Defeat 5 enemies with one explosion Grenade Hangman (Bronze) – Defeat 10 enemies with grenades while hanging Drop the Bomb Headshot (Bronze) – Make 5 enemies drop their grenades by shooting them Throwback (Bronze) -Kill 10 enemies with thrown-back grenades Throwback Master (Bronze) – Throw back a grenade and defeat two enemies at once Bare-knuckle Brawler (Bronze) – Defeat 20 enemies with hand-to-hand combat Bare-knuckle Slugger (Bronze) – Defeat 50 enemies with hand to hand combat Master Ninja (Bronze) – Defeat 50 enemies with stealth attacks Expert Ninja (Silver) – Defeat 5 enemies in a row using stealth attacks Riot Rocker (Bronze) – Defeat 5 Riot Shield enemies by running over their shield Brute Beater (Bronze) – Successfully counter all of a Bruteâ€™s damage-giving attacks
The big portion of this list is the combat trophies, and that’s not including the weapon trophies and a couple other trophies I decided to put in a different category. Most of this is the same as the previous two games, but there is a few new ones that hints at new features. Like the “Trhowback” and “Throwback Master” trophies where you have to throw back a grenade and defeat your enemies. Do that 10 times, plus kill two in one throw back to earn those two.
Weapon Trophies 12 trophies (12 Bronze) – 180 points 30 Kills: Mag 5 (Bronze) – Defeat 30 enemies with the Mag 5 30 Kills: Arm Micro (Bronze) – Defeat 30 enemies with the Arm Micro 30 Kills: TAU Sniper (Bronze) – Defeat 30 enemies with the Tau Sniper 30 Kills: KAL 7 (Bronze) – Defeat 30 enemies with the KAL 7 30 Kills: M9 (Bronze) – Defeat 30 enemies with the M9 30 Kills: G-MAL (Bronze) – Defeat 30 enemies with the G-MAL 30 Kills: SAS-12 (Bronze) – Defeat 30 enemies with the SAS-12 30 Kills: Dragon Sniper (Bronze) – Defeat 30 enemies with the Dragon Sniper 30 Kills: T-Bolt Sniper (Bronze) – Defeat 30 enemies with the T-Bolt Sniper 30 Kills: RPG7 (Bronze) – Defeat 30 enemies with the RPG-7 30 Kills: PAK-80 (Bronze) – Defeat 30 enemies with the PAK-80 30 Kills: Mk-NDI (Bronze) – Defeat 30 enemies with the Mk-NDI
The weapons trophies also makes a return. This time however you only need 30 kills for each of them. No 200 kills with the GAU trophy this time. I’m missing the Desert – 5 from the list, and sincerely hope the gun will be in the game. One of my favorite guns.
Miscellaneous Trophies 5 trophies (5 Bronze) – 75 points Quick Study (Bronze) – Inspect every display case in the Cartagena Museum Ride the Crocodile (Bronze) – Stand on the crocodile in the Secret Library Heâ€™s Gonna Need a Sturgeon (Bronze) – Hit three enemies with fish in the market Marco Solo (Bronze) – Play in the swimming pool on the Cruise Ship Truck Brawler (Bronze) – Defeat 10 enemies using hand-to-hand combat on the back of the convoy trucks
This is the interesting part of the list. I like the do-random-stuff trophies in games, and this is a first in the Uncharted franchise. Some of the things you have to do in this category is to throw fish at enemies in the market, take a swim in a pool on a Cruise Ship and stand on top of a crocodile. Geez, I hope it ain’t alive when I’m gonna do that.
Difficulty Trophies 4 trophies (1 Bronze, 2 Silver, 1 Gold) – 165 points Charted! – Easy (Bronze) – Finish the game in Easy Mode Charted! – Normal (Silver) – Finish the game in Normal Mode Charted! – Hard (Silver) – Finish the game in Hard Mode Charted! – Crushing (Gold) – Finish the game in Crushing Mode
Just like the other two games. You’ll likely have to beat the game on hard first to unlock crushing and then beat it on crushing to get these four trophies. They stacked in the first two games, so they should do so this time around to.
Online Trophies 2 trophies (2 Bronze) – 30 points Thrillseeker (Bronze) – Complete one Competitive Multiplayer game Buddy System (Bronze) – Complete one Cooperative Multiplayer game
Also identical to Uncharted 2 are the online trophies. You only need to finish one competitive multiplayer game and a cooperative one and you are done with the online part as far as trophies are concerned.
The Platinum 180 points
Platinum (Platinum) – Platinum
The Platinum is always getting all the other trophies, so the only interesting part is the name and the design of the tile. Just like the other two games, it’s called Platinum. A little disappointing, but expected.
The trophy list is what you expect from an Uncharted game. Combat related trophies are the biggest portion of it. The amount of treasure trophies have decreased to make room for other trophies, but you still have to collect all of them. At least there aren’t more treasures than the last game. 100 treasures are a solid amount though. The miscellaneous trophies where a nice addition, and adds some spice to an otherwise straightforward list.
As I did for the first two games, I will make a trophy guide, complete with videos for treasures and other select trophies. Still haven’t gotten all trophies in the previous games? Then take a look at my previous trophy guides.
NCIS is easily my favorite TV Show, and season 9 got underway yesterday in USA. What better time to announce that on October 27th, assuming in USA due to this being a Tuesday, will see the release of NCIS, a game made for PS3, 360, PC and Wii.
I don’t expect this to be game of the year, as games based on TV shows rarely turn out that good, but this gets me really exited anyway. In NCIS The Game, or whatever it’s called, you’ll investigate crime scenes as Tony DiNozzo and Ziva David, conduct forensics analyses as Abby Sciuto, perform victim autopsies as Ducky, interrogate and break suspects as Gibbs and use satelite tracking as special agent McGee. There will be four episodes in the game, spanning exotic locales such as an Atlantic City Casino to a luxury hotel in Dubai. You’ll tasked to solve these four crimes, as well as solving an overarching plot line.
I really hope this game at least will be decent, and will bring with it the humor from the show. I’ll be all over this game when it comes out the week before Uncharted 3.
