It’s been widely known that Gran Turismo 5 features the track of dreams; BBC’s Top Gear test track, famously renowned for testing the driving diligence of celebrities and, of course, the Stig.

With this in mind, I decided to put its authenticity to the test by compiling a recorded lap in a Ferrari 458 Italia coupled with Jeremy Clarkson’s commentary from the Stig’s televised lap in the same car. The result is what you see in the video above.

While I think you will agree that with a spot of editing it is indeed possible to create a convincing Top Gear imitation,  it’s a shame the game doesn’t include the authentic camera angles from the show, not to mention his Stigness as a playable driver. Nonetheless, it’s still tremendous fun to drive around and offers great incentive to try and compete with Top Gear’s Power Lap board.

Gamer Limit’s review of Gran Turismo 5 will be up this week.

Early Friday morning, GameTrailers revealed the world premier trailer of Telltale Games’ long awaited episodic adventure, Back To The Future The Game. Back in June, Telltale released a teaser announcing the project along with a Jurrasic Park title. For six months, fans have been on pins and needles — and for anyone (including myself) following the hype, this particular trailer was supposed to be epic. Telltale themselves said, “it looks fantastic!”

All subjectivity aside, there can be an argument as to why the trailer fails or succeeds in delivering 1.21 jiggawatts of excitement. It lends itself perfectly to this next installment on what it takes to hype up a game right, or wrong. A bit of fair warning, this article bears potentially gruesome videos after the jump.  We’ll let you decide why they’re both gruesome.

It’s the announcement Battlefield: Bad Company 2 veterans have been waiting for: the release dates of the recently announced Vip Map Pack 7 and Vietnam expansion revealed back at E3 in June.

Vip Map Pack 7, which contains four new maps including fan favourite Oasis from the original Bad Company, will be available December 1st (that’s tomorrow), and should provide the perfect excuse to get back into the excellent multiplayer action of Bad Company 2.

Vietnam on the other hand (which features four new Vietnam maps along with a host of new weapons and vehicles) will deploy on December 21st for the consoles and December 18 for PC on Steam EA’s online store, retailing for $14.99/£9.99 or 1200 Microsoft points.

Have you ever wondered how one of the many high speed car chases in Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit would translate in real life? Well, EA seems to have answered that question with a new live action video that pits a Pagani Zonda against a Lamborghini Murcielago police interceptor, as it dodges spike strips and evades low flying helicopters.

Unlike in the game however, they don’t smash up these extortionate exotics. Pity.

Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit launches today in Europe.

In the run-up to the launch of Gran Turismo 5 next Wednesday, Sony’s advertising campaign for the game is in full swing with the release of a new advert starring the ever hilarious Kevin Butler.

So it turns out that Mr. Butler is fully responsible for the delay of GT5. Shame on him.

Only 5 agonising days left…

Developer People Can Fly just released a new Bulletstorm trailer today. If you’re like me, you clicked on right away to watch the gory goodness. From the sights and sounds, it seems the game will live up to its promise of being jam packed with colorful language and massively entertaining shooter action–even if it is only remotely close to the trailer.

You want more? Of course you want more.

The latest trailer for EA’s upcoming DLC expansion Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam not only contains high-octane gameplay footage of the game in action, but also reveals the pricing details.

According to the trailer, Vietnam will retail for $14.99 /1200 MS Points, which doesn’t sound too dissimilar to last year’s Battlefield: 1943. In a similar vein, the DLC will include four new maps along with four new vehicles and 15 weapons that compliment the new era.

A precise release date has yet to be disclosed however, as the trailer still points to a winter 2010 date for deployment.

A new trailer has been released for the Criterion’s forthcoming Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, once again highlighting the range of ludicrously powered supercars and the equally preposterously police cars that will be available.

The trailer also provides a further glimpse into the long-winding tracks from the past and the new Autolog feature for online play that allows you to connect to others and display your friend’s stats.

Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit is slated for release November 16th in North America and November 19th in European territories.

NamcoBandai has just released the latest trailer for their upcoming hack and slash title Knights Contract. Expect lots of man on wolfman violence to ensue, with the ocassional magical incantation or two. Overall, the motion capture work is incredible, and I’m really interested to see some gameplay, given how much effort they put into the above video.

The visceral medieval feel of the game actually reminds me more of Berserk than Dragon Age, but this is a video game website after all, so don’t expect a huge rant!

As if we didn’t already know from the multitude of hints that have prevailed over the last year, Resistance 3 is coming. Today, however, saw the official confirmation from Insomniac along with an intriguing live action teaser trailer. I think it’s rather delicious myself, but you can judge it for yourself in the video posted above.

No further details were announced other than the fact it will launch next year and, judging from the logo, will see the Chimera turn their attentions onto New York just in time to coincide with Crysis 2.

Sony simply can’t get enough of flaunting Killzone 3. True to form, Gamescom has brought us yet another trailer of the 3D brethren, this time offering the first look at some multiplayer action.

And in case you were wondering, yes the jet pack seen in the initial trailers will be making an appearance. As will the almighty Exoskeletons from Killzone 2, it so happens. I would call that a result.

Fresh from Sony’s press conference at Gamescom comes a brand new trailer for Media Molecule’s LittleBigPlanet 2, which contains a glimpse at some new creation tools including some fancy music and cut scene editors. Not to mention the fact that the music used throughout the trailer is ridiculously soothing.

Sackboy is once again set to melt the hardened hearts of gamers November 12th in Europe and November 16th in the US.
