UNYSOC Forza Horizon Car Club.

Awesome game, figured I'd start a UNYSOC car club on it. Club tag is USOC. Just add yourself or shoot me a message on XBL. StatusSno. Mention the forums

Im tied between this and NFS Most Wanted. I already have Halo 4 pre-ordered through Microsoft(i get $25 to spend on microsofts site...so that could go towards either game.)

I'll just bum NFS The Run off someone else after awhile.  Or Most Wanted.  Or whatever one is currently the newest.

I haven't seen the trailers for the new Most Wanted, but I did reinstall the original on my PC last night. 

Why doesn't Turn10 Develop Forza for PC, dammit!?

Probably some BS about not being up to standards they want with reliable visual and the like...

i really dont care for forza. every forza game so far seems to lack the fact that your going fast. so it always feels like all im dong is driving a slow ass car. they need to add more sound affects and graphics to get their cars feeling as if they are moving at a high rate of speed. i dont understand how tit could be hard to do. nfs has been doing it for years.even burnout had that high speed feel to it that got your adrenalin going.

and another thing, they always start you out with cars that no one would race. who the fuck would take a chey aveo or similar car to a track. so the game always pisses me off and bores me from the start. you never get good cars until you are get into the 3rd class. so your stuck driving pos cars that no one cars about when they could start you off with something at least a little entertaining. i mean come on, give me a civic or something.

also i tried the demo and this game will be the same way. i will pick it up when it drops to about $20 but i wont spend anything higher then that for it. but i will be picking up assassins creed 3 & nfs most wanted tomorrow when best buy opens. so if anyone gets them and your not on my friends list please send me one.

I never had this issue.  In forza 1, I started with a DSM, and in every forza there's always at least a cool(if not fast) car.  I started with the fiesta in F3...and there's rally parts and spec racing parts available for both series from the factory in RL.   :smitten:

Yes, I meant lazy developers.  Just...  Nicely.  I had been in computer engineering for a while there...

I started with an Alfa Romeo Brera Independent in F3.  I proceeded to take that thing beyond S level, before I realized there were a ^$%#load of cars.  I think it had an 8C V8, a centrifugal supercharger, and every other thing.

My only complaint about Forza is how hard it is to "feel" the car.  I refuse to play racing sims with TC/ABS/etc on, and in most games I can still learn the braking points and feel the car sliding.  Can't do that in Forza.  That may be my inexperience with Xbox-style controllers, though.

try a feedback wheel, buddy of mine had it and it was great (except for the price).
I think the new forza is great. Its a good mesh between realistic driving characteristics, and new age racing culture.
Its half need for speed, and half forza. the best parts of both all in one - a real story mode and true driving realism.

I already have a Logitech MOMO Force wheel for my PC.  If the Xbox supported THE MOST GODDAMN COMMON COMMUNICATION HARDWARE ON THE PLANET, I would love to play it with that.  But NOOOOOOOOO, you have to buy Xbox-specific wheels....


Bullshit, I say.
