AOR Weekly Recap #2 & #3

Hi and welcome to the second (and third) AOR Weekly Recap! You may have noticed this entry is late, my apologies for that. My laptop is having some problems (RIP) so I was unable to publish it on time, as it was originally intended. Technology is great, but it can let you down when you least expect it – always backup your files kids!

Anyway, this week will be a two for one recap as we’ve got the usual races to cover, a new way for the AOR community to share their in-game photos, DiRT 4 Rally League results, and some other bits to cover. So let’s get this recap out of the way, and hope that nothing else prevents me from posting the next one on time.

News

AOR Community Gallery
Photomode – a built-in feature in video games that allows the players to capture their own photos – has been growing in popularity in recent years. So much so that is now a standard feature in most titles. Racing games are no exception, and they have a history with photomode long before the rise of social media platforms. The very first racing game to do more than just “screenshots” and have it’s own dedicated photomode, was Gran Turismo 4 for the PlayStation 2 in 2005. Featuring dedicated locations around the world, where the player could place any of the 700+ cars, take action shots during replays with a vast array of fixed camera placements and generous free movement, this feature included realistic camera settings (such as shutter speeds and aperture) which allowed players to produce some incredible photos.

 

 

This feature has evolved thought the years and was implemented in each new iteration of the series. Eventually, other games picked up and developed their own photomode. Now it seems to be the norm as most racing games have their own dedicated photomode feature. Therefore, AOR has come up with a new way for you to share your own in-game photos with the rest of the AOR community – AOR Community Gallery.

 

Click the image above, and it will take you directly to the dedicated forum thread where you can share your own shots in the forums, or on social media by using the hashtag #AORPICS – it might get featured in one of our social media channels or entered in future competitions!
