I just picked up a 360 on Saturday and forza 4 on Sunday. I think I sent a request for the club and few days ago. I've been a hermit so far this week.

Shiz told me that the new viper is available for free in the marketplace. Lo and behold, IT IS! It's also an autovista car too. It's pretty stable in stock form at 204mph down the mulsanne straight!

Now, go download that bitch!

I was actually pretty excited about the last car pack because there was an old school VW Beetle. I finally got to make a Herbie the Love Bug replica! Little car actually handles pretty good too.

Maybe i'll put it in club garage.
The way its set up it's good on small tracks, but anything with long straights your gonna get beat.

Bringing this back to the forefront since I dropped some times in rivals last night. Enjoy.

^^ Why does it have to be the FR-S? I would have even been OK with Toyota badging, but the fact it's a Scion kinda pisses me off.

I know it's the same car. The fanboi in me wanted a BRZ.

Anyone pick up Forza Horizon? Just got the only non-pre order copy Best Buy had in stock.

Demo was fun, not the Forza we are used to, but, fun anyways. Its kinda like NFS Underground meets Dirt meets Forza.

Exactly what I thought the demo "felt" like. I don't think it's worth 60$ though. I'll wait for a used copy and give it a shot..

Need for Dirt 5? I have to say it was a huge let down. If I wanna play a game with those physics and that style of game play I'll just kick it old school with Need for Speed Underground 2.

I'm hoping the full game is at least entertaining. The handling didnt seem too bad, hard to tell with the one of two races i did in the demo. It def felt more realistic than NFS. I'll post opinions once i play it for a few hours.

In my opinion I want to play a sim race game. I've tried IRacing and that might be almost too simulated but still the car does everything I expect it would. After playing the Horizon demo I was able to go flat out at 120+ mph through turns in a stock Evo. To me what's the point in playing a racing game to doesn't require any skill. Again just my opinion.

^ Its a fun game, but the handling is completely stupid. Even with all assists off, screwing up is a chore

I found it to be pretty easy to out brake myself going into slower corners in the demo. Even with ABS on.

The physics on Horizon are nothing like the phsics on Forza 4. As people have said it feels like a NFS. Plus there is no tuning, only upgrading.

Yeah, it def seems a little more realistic that NFS... but, still no where near reality. The normal Forza is still by far my favorite. But this will keep me entertained for a while.

Forza 4 I keep playing because I love it, this game I'm prob gonna play just to make progress in the game and have a little fun while doing it. Then once i'm sick of it prob never play it again.

I haven't played it yet, but I hear the single player is fun but the online play sucks. I'm guessing its going to be one of those games that is fun for the first couple of weeks but gets old. Forza 4 is an awesome game, I wish they carried the physics, tuning, and handling aspects over to horizon.

If it was a free roam version of Forza 4 with little "missions" to do it would have been an incredible game. I always love the free roam aspect where you could just mess around for hours driving the speed limit, racing other cars, or avoiding traffic, lol.

I'm confused? isn't FH a free roam game? I dont think you're forced at all to race.
