Kinect Support, more cars, more polygons, more tracks, better lighting system, better tire simulation, CAR CLUBS

I dont like that they went the NFS with the forced cockpit shake and the zoom "speed" effect on the cockpit and cars around you. Forza 3 "felt" plenty fast to me even without those BS effects.
An AWESOME addition is the car club feature. lets say all of us guys on CF who play forza buy forza 4 and create a car club. Lets say i buy it 3 months later than you do. By that time sting and V-eight have tons more money and cars than i do. I can join the club and literally borrow cars from them. We can SHARE cars without any of us being online. so as dan greenawalt puts it, if im a great tuner, youre a great painter and someone else is a great driver. we can share a garage without having to use the auction house or trading system to pass files back and forth. Once you have access to the car, i STILL have access to the car. (they didnt mention if we could both drive it simultaneously, i doubt it.)

Also, i cant remember what the previous amount of polygons per vehicle was. It has been increased to over a million polygons per vehicle

Already have my copy pre-ordered :dance: I'm gonna have to get a nice speaker setup to properly enjoy this game too and also probably pick up a Kinect because that head tracking feature is just cool.

Forza 3 car polygon count was 400,000 I believe.

im torn. i know ill love the game, just like i love forza 3, but i know whats gonna happen. Im gonna pay upwards of 70 bucks for forza 4 on launch day, take it home, play the mess out of it, buy dlc as its released if it appeals to me.

A few months later, Forza 4 ULTIMATE, will release for a much lower price than the original 60 bucks, and will include all the DLC i paid $5 a pop for

If you love something that much, overpay. For me, I like GT game play better. Good night.

That probably won't happen for at least a year.

gotta convert a gt fan over


man i had a ps3 for a couple of months, got it by trading a phone i didnt need any more for it. Also won some "reward points" from at&t for selling so many damn cell phones. So i "bought" gran turismo 5 with the points. played it 5 times. hated that it took longer to get through the menus and loading than the race lasted. Ended up selling the PS3 for 280 (new style 160? gig 1 controller, hdmi with a couple of sports games and MW2) and giving gran tursimo to my gf's little brother who has a ps3. i hope he likes it cause i hated it

Nah, I got my brother with a PS3 and a couple of friends with 'em. I like Forza, but I still enjoy playing Outrun that I used to play when I was a kid. I'll trade in graphics for gameplay any day. Besides, I've got other things I'm paying for lately taking up my $$$. Like TSW Nurburgrings, Hankook Z214 C91s, Hawk DTC-70s, Motul 600. Things like that.

Real life trumps all games...

true. i dont have any fancy schmancy luxury sport sedans to buy expensive parts for but i know what you mean about other expenses.


as far as gameplay vs graphics, 1000% agreed. When i was younger i shared a house with a couple of my brothers and a friend. We had a sick gaming computer, a modded xbox, an xbox 360 (has JUST released) tons of games for both the xbox and 360 and a dreamcast. The NES emulator on the modded XBOX got the most play.

When all of our friends came over though, this game got the most play

(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHF7EDmrebg) It was literally a button masher with crappy graphics but it was FUN! instead of tapping a then b we would slide our finger quickly back and forth, which quickly burnt our thumb up.

i woke up one morning to the weirdest site, it was about 5 o clock in the morning and i heard a noise from the living room. I walked out to find one of my buddies with his shirt stretched past his waist, one hand under the shirt, one had over it. he froze when i walked out and i thought the worst haha. i started to turn around and walk back iunto my room when he pulled out the controller and said "im playin dreamcast man its not what you think haha!!! he was using his shirt to prevent the thumb from burning up so fast

LOL. That used to be one of my favorite games.

I remember playing this as a kid - my favorite arcade game. Pretty good dynamics for its' time too. My first experience with "Press clutch to start"

I loved Hard Drivin'. Also Road Rash.

Ridge Racer was a favorite as well... and I'll smack down any motherf*cker at some Super Mario Kart.


Also, I've totally been moving my hand/head with the car on track for YEARS. Kinect just found a way to make it cool. I will definitely purchase Forza 4 on launch day, and not a single f*ck will be given to anything else that day. :thumbsup:

I'm trying to get 100% before Forza 4 comes out, I'm at 54% right now.

I got the VIP car pack since it dropped down to 400 points, in addition to the the six cars that are in it the game gifted me like 15 other cars with it haha.

OffThaHorseCEO
06-20-11, 11:55 PM
yea it would have retroactively gifted you every car that the vip members were gifted since the game released.

im trying to get 100% as well. i came very close in forza 2 but missed it by 1 achievement. i had created a dodge charger highway patrol paintjob though and made a killing, maxed out the money counter. not so lucky this time, ive made a couole mil max.

unfortunately, i lost all my forza info when i tried switching hard drives.
