Let's Do The News! (April 7, 2014)

The big scoop today...

Eiger Nordwand - Short Track

- Now, while I was conducting the latest GT6 entry regarding my new Lotus Elise in game, the latest minor update (Update 1.06) is now online on Gran Turismo 6. For this update:

Data Logger now available
[Data Logger] has been added to the [TOOLS] section in "My Home". The Data Logger analyzes the driving data stored on a Replay file and displays it in a graph, allowing users to view and compare variations in vehicle speed, acceleration points, braking points, engine rpm values and gear positions.

GPS Visualizer function introduced
[GPS Visualizer] has been added to the [TOOLS] section in "My Home". By driving a car equipped with the "Sports Drive Logger" (sold by Toyota) on a real-life circuit, the recorded GPS data can be transferred to “Gran Turismo 6” via a compatible USB storage media, and then subsequently converted into Replay file in the game. It's be possible to compare and analyze these GPS data using the [Data Logger] feature. This feature is currently available with Fuji Speedway, Tsukuba Circuit and Suzuka Circuit, with more tracks to be added later on.

Custom Rear Wing option implemented
[Custom Rear Wing] has been added to the [External Parts] menu, accessible from the [Custom Parts] options within the [Tuning & Maintenance] section in "My Home". You can choose a combination of wing mounts, wing style and side winglets. Users can also adjust the height and width of the wing to their liking. (*Please note this feature isn't compatible with certain cars.)

3DTV compatibility now added
A [3DTV] option has been added to the [Display] category within the [Options] screen in the [MENU] (accessible by pressing the START button). A 3D compatible TV is required for this feature.

Adjustments to the Open Lobby
- From the Member List, it is now possible to see the Performance Points, maximum output and weight of the cars that have joined the room.
- An "Overall Best" time is now displayed on screen while in Practice, Qualifying, Time Trial and Drift Trial.
- The minimum value for [Max Power Limit] and [Minimum Weight] has been changed from 10 to 1. 
- The options available in the [Race Type] menu within [Room Settings] of the "Event Settings" screen have been changed. 

Other improvements and adjustments:
- The Traction Control System (TCS) which is activated when driving off-track is now used only in sand/gravel pits.
- The strength of the "Real" option for the [Slipstream Strength] parameter within [Race Settings] when creating a room in [Open Lobby], has been weakened.

- GREAT SCOTT! The DeLorean that was displayed at the recently concluded Manila International Auto Show is up for grabs and the handler, Oliver Corpus, priced his DeLorean for around three million pesos.

- Reports told that the 6-wheel drive Mercedes G63 AMG might get featured in the upcoming Summer 2015 flick, Jurassic World, the fourth installment of the Jurassic Park franchise.

- Mayako Nigo, the voice behind THE iDOLM@STER's Yayoi, gets married.

- Masato Masuda, the mastermind behind the Fire Pro Wrestling franchise, passed away. Goichi "Suda51" Suda tweets about his condolences of his old colleague.

- Star Movies Philippines aired the hit 2013 movie, Olympus Has Fallen, but there has been some negative reactions regarding how did the last 15 minutes of the film was cut. It was cut for a commercial break where Mike Banning (played by Gerard Butler) come face to face against a terrorist (played by Bond Villain Rick Yune). After this, the viewers notice that it's The Lost World: Jurassic Park already. What just happened? How come Star Movies PH cut the last 15 minutes of the film for some pointless commercial breaks? Here's why...

- WrestleMania XXX sees Brock Lesnar putting the end of The Undertaker's winning streak of 21. After unleashing his trademark F5 attack, not only he countered Undertaker's Tombstone attack, HE DEMOLISHED IT.

Still, Undertaker's humiliating loss in WrestleMania XXX is probably known as one of the most humiliating moments in WWE history.
