Gran Turismo 4 has arrived!

A long time ago, a PS2 was bought,
For a series I hold so dear.
Or so I thought, but all for naught,
As I sat waiting for a year.

After multiple delays,
The day has finally arrived.
Time to hibernate for days.
In racing, pleasure derived.

It's off to the races we go,
Engines roaring, tires burning.
Weaving in and out of the flow.
Throttle, brake, shifting and turning.

to be continued...

%@$&*, this version's hard as hell, I swear every car understeers now (or maybe I'm just braking too late). That and relearning how to play with the wheel has led to a stressful night. Pictured is a temporary setup, still haven't decided on a suitable cockpit, so I have the wheel mounted to my laptop desk. Not that great of a solution as I have to retighten the thing every so often. As for video, I'm projecting from the desk onto a screen at the other end of the room, wish I could pull back the projector more to get the video feed a bit larger, but that'll involve too much work. Currently have the audio jacked into my desktop's Onkyo system. Anyone want to buy me an HDTV? =D

BTW: Anyone need a copy of GT4 for $39.99? I mistakenly ordered two copies. LMK! Immediate delivery! N/M, giving it to my cousin. Price is up to $44 now at eCost.

Hey DC, did you try turning down all the stability/traction assists? It makes FWD cars more willing to turn in, but it will take some getting used to if you are used to them saving you with RWD cars. I think there's a huge difference with the assists off, at least in FWD. Man, I have to get the wheel. After playing with it, the controller doesn't feel right at all...
