What Can This Possibly Mean

WTF

This is the footer on the Gran Turismo 5 Prologue page.

Note the rating – E for Everyone and… “Mild Suggestive Themes”? What can that be? They suggest that you might drive quickly on a racetrack? Is that even a theme? What constitutes Mild from Medium or Spicy? These are suggestions? These are whispered furtively in your ear, eminating from the rear left speaker of your surround-sound, as you drift ’round a corner on the Eiger Nordwand in a Mitsubishi Lancer, telling you to, oh I dunno, maybe go forth and kill the unbelievers, if you have time after lunch?

I don’t get it.

  1. Race girls, of course!

    Y’know all those skin-tight latex suits and whatnot!! ;)

  2. Most likely it’s music related.

  3. I’m thinking it may have something to do with post-victory champagne celebration imagery. Aphex Twin style.

  4. From what I understand, it’s the inclusion of the ‘08 Opel Fuckshit Coupé. When they omitted that Datsun Pisstits a few years back, the community really tore ‘em a new one. Nice to see they learned their lesson on this one.

  5. no car upgrades, thus crap and not worth the coin. I’ve got the Japanese version, had it for a while, looks good, but needs damage modeling.

    If Forza can, why can’t this?

  6. Damage modelling would be sorta nice I guess, although as soon as you tapped someone the race would end….

    GTA5’s car models (including the in-car dash stuff) sort of pathetically shame Forza’s efforts. They laser-scan the cars in 3D. If I had to pick I’d go with GTA5’s method for a sim.

  7. Hey Arc… log on with the Japanese version and you can download the Spec 2 update. It’ll bring you up to parity with the otherwise far superior European version.
