    Forza 4 looks to blow that out of the water. If you like cars, you won't be disappointed. Period.
    And even if you don't, it still looks pretty.

    So my dad comes into my room randomly the other day and says "by the way, i've bought a game for the xbox. For- something"

    "Forza?"

    "Yeah that. I saw an advert for it and thought "yeah a racing game, ok" and bought it.

    "uh... ok. Cool!"



    So I have absolutely no knowledge whatsoever of the Forza series other than it's a racing game series. What's it like?
    don't expect unrealistic shite like our adventures in tdu2 with rampageturke, it's a lot more realistic and gritty as well as a hell of a lot more fun

    Edited:

    also forza 4 doesn't feel that much different in terms of driving to forza 3 for me, I also thought that maybe on non-HD tv's we'd actually be able to read the text in the menus this time around

    Forza 3 was probably the best racing game out there, until 4za came along. A huge selection of well detailed cars, excellent graphics, good gameplay, the greatest livery editor in the history of ever, a deep customization and tuning/upgrade system, etc.

    Forza 4 looks to blow that out of the water. If you like cars, you won't be disappointed. Period.

    EDIT: And if you don't like cars, you probably will by the time you're a couple hours into the game. It's really that good. At least Forza 3 was.
    Forza 3 was a great GAME except for the matchmaking, but the tire physics were, let's be honest, pretty fucking bad. The suspension physics were crap too. Forza 4 fixes all that though.

    Got paid today. Plan on pre-o'ing tomorrow.

    But before I do, what are the "in-game" benefits of preordering besides a special car depending on where you place your order. Also, what are the differences between the platinum and regular edition of the game?

    The Limited Edition has like 25 extra cars, and even more Top Gear content (I think it's an art book or something, not sure. Don't take my word on that), not to mention a metal box and a couple other benefits in game (if you remember VIP from Forza 3, I think it's similar to that.) Not bad for only $20 extra. I paid for it and I don't plan on regretting it anytime soon.

    Actually it's only 5 more cars (VIP pack) over getting the standard version, 15 if you count the 10 car muscle car pack that you can get free with the Season Pass anyways. If you want to count the 5 car BMW art car pack then I guess it's 20, but those are just reskins of cars that are already in the game. The other 5 are the launch bonus pack which you get for pre-ordering/buying near release regardless of what version you buy.

    I remember them saying something about being sponsored by LeMans and they were going to do something with the game related to it.

    Anyone know about this?

    How is driving with a controller going to affect my times and ability in Forza 4? I've played Forza 3 forever but I understand it's going to be a different experience entirely. I can't afford a wheel and pedals, and my friend in Minnesota is willing to send me his because he has no use or room for it, but for all I know it could be a crappy one.

    Honestly it probably won't make an extreme difference and you'll probably do well with whatever you're most comfortable with. In the demo I was able to score in the top 1% in the Ferrari overtake event in Rivals mode using a controller.

    Tuesdays are always my busy days, and of course, they always release games on Tuesday.
    Might skip my useless "Interpersonal Communications" class to go pick this up. Really looking forward to it.

    Who wants to start up a Facepunch car club? I got a bunch of agrees when I suggested it, but someone needs to actually start it.

    I'm sad. I haven't received a confirmation email from TigerDirect and I don't even know when it's going to come. I look at the website and it just says "No word from Drop-shipper, item not shipped."

    God I hope it does come, I spent 80 bucks on that thing.

    Some people on the Forza forum had their game shipped to them on Saturday, but I don't think anyone here.

    I'll gladly join the car club if a no-racing-wheel pleb like me isn't going to drag our stats down

    Maybe you ought to start it, you're the general.

    Shit I just got an email from Best Buy saying they can't send me my Limited Collectors Edition because they're out of stock. I pre-ordered when it was in-stock. Gotta be fucking kidding me, now everywhere is out of stock and I won't be able to buy it on release day.

    I realize a lot of people have had problems with Gamestop, but I've never had any issues with them whatsoever- the store in my town is always friendly and helpful and has my preorders when I ask for them. It really depends on the store though.

    really the only problem with my local gamestop is that there's only one person there that plays stuff other than madden/shoot dudes: the game

    well, they also cut 10% off my trade in because it was cracked and they had to fix it. silly gamestop you can't fix cracks! also they weren't cracked at all

    Anyone got a link to more info on clubs? I assume it'll be a pretty straight-forward "Create New Club" option to found one, but will there be associated costs, membership approval, certain features that need to be unlocked?

    Hey that guy was one of the announcers/presenters during 2 paid-entry endurance races that were broadcasted live with rFactor some years ago. Well, more than 2, but I mean the two I actually raced in

    EDIT: Or playing now and installing content later.

    Soooo I said I'd get this when the price dropped.

    Then I played the demo and immediately went to the store to preorder a copy.

    Turns out there aren't preorder bonuses though. Shame.

    Edited:

    Wait. There are. The gamestop girl had better given me my Alfa Romeo. Girl didn't know what she was doing at all. She read the limited edition bonuses to me then realized that was the LE.

    Your Alfa code should be on your receipt just below the big barcode in the middle, and I'm thinking you probably got a card inside the case with your launch bonuses, but that might depend on how many copies your Gamestop had already sold before yours.

    There's an adapter so you can use G25 or G27 wheels with Fanatec wheels, so you don't need to spend 150$ to get good pedals.

    I know this, with the shifter, the adapter and a wheel it'll be 399 + shipping, I'm trying to make my parents buy it for me.
