Jalopnik broadcasts Tourist Trophy on Twitch at 4pm Eastern
This is the day of the live stream at Jalopnik! Last week, our friends Steve, Andy and José discussed a potential motorcycle purchase, although my brain wasn’t clear on the specifics because I was preoccupied with making a name for myself. for myself in ‘s Midnight Club version of Los Angeles. Well, I may not ride, but I do happen to know what the best riding sim is. Today we will play it at twitch.tv/jalopnikdotcom at 4 p.m. Eastern.
It is called Travel Cup. Released in 2006 – the end of the PlayStation 2’s life cycle – Travel Cup developed by Gran Turismo Polyphony Digital manufacturers. Polyphony has replaced GT4 engine and many content of the game for the motorcycle riding simulator. When PS3 came out and Xbox 360 came out, many people ignored it Travel Cupthough those who don’t know it is the best two wheeler racing experience you’ll find in the game, to this day.
Travel Cup there are more than 120 bikes and almost every asphalt road from GT4, save for Circuit de la Sarthe, home of 24 Hours of Le Mans. Yes – that means you can ride on the Nürburgring Nordschleife in this game. Certain cuts have to be made on the gameplay aspect – the bike and rider animations are quite complex to model and are an enhancement for the old PS2, so Polyphony has reduced the number of objects. AI competitor down to three to ensure that- hit the 60 fps solid target.
Honestly, the lack of competitors on the track doesn’t really matter. Physics is the star of the show in Travel Cupand Polyphony’s ability to convey the power of the rider’s movement add Doa for the bike’s density is the crowning achievement of the developer team. It’s still a joy to play, and realistically or not, I’ll take it on on modern riding simulators like Ride 4 Any day of the week.

I’m excited to mingle with a dedicated two-wheeler for the first time on one of the streams; I just knew José would love it, and probably taught me a lot about bicycles! Join us at 4pm ET on Twitch channel jalopnikdotcom to find out its contents.
