    Forza Motorsport 7

    How the fuck did I not see that?

    Forza Motorsport 7

    I definitely lean on the driving line a touch to get around the course quickly. I may drop it to braking only and see how I go. The Forzathon I looked at yesterday included one the involved driving round Bathurst, but I couldn't find it in free play. Was I just being blind or what?

    Forza Motorsport 7

    Have played this for a few hours now. It's just more of the same, but every so slightly different, isn't it? If you started with the original on Xbox and worked your way through, you'd essentially be playing the same game over and over, just with better graphics each time, different cars and tracks and a few new game mechanics thrown in. The series has never deviated from the original formula too far, despite there being seven incarnations now. And I love them all. Turn 10 clearly know what has made the series popular and are sticking with that. Where Gran Turismo has, IMO, wandered off into a self indulgent vanity piece for the developer that peaked maybe three games into the series, Forza has stuck to its roots and just tried to get a bit better each time. I imagine I'll start to find fault as I go further in and I'm thinking that maybe the Ultimate Edition has given me too much stuff from the get go, and Forza Rewards has essentially broken the economy for me (I started the game with 3.4 million credits, so cash rewards are pretty meaningless right now), but I'm loving what I'm seeing so far.

    I'm actually a bigger fan of Hot Wheels than Blizzard Mountain. It's silly and arcade-y, but just loads of fun.

    Rllmuk racing wheel thread

    Given that the most played games on my Bone are all Forza titles (Horizon 2 & 3 and Motorsport 6), I've just got FM7 and Horizon 4 is in the erm... horizon, I'm thinking I might be able to justify a wheel. Thing is, the Bone is in the lounge, so a wheel stand isn't much of an option. I actually really like the official 360 wireless wheel sat on my knees, is there a modern equivalent? Everything I'm seeing on Amazon needs either a stand or a surface to bolt it to.

    Don't you mean "going back in the day"?

    Forza Motorsport 7

    I've only had four races, but so far so good. I always find the pointless races at the start of Forza games a bit annoying, so having three of them wasn't great for me. Not sure about the loot boxes just yet either. I never really bothered with the mods in 6. I might use the extra xp ones, but that's about it. I already have probably more money than I need - Forza Rewards has given me something like three and a half million credits. I could possibly do with more Xbox friends for drivatars - I only ever seem to be racing against TheStu, MultiClunk and Dudley. Any volunteers? Speaking of which, is there a "beat your friends time" thing in this?

    The Ultimate Edition is reduced to £32 on Amazon right now, so I've decided to take the plunge. Waiting for it to download now. Quite excited to see how this compares to the previous games. Other than car packs, have there been any expansions? Are there likely to be any?

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    This is really for another thread, but it depends on whether there's enough content on there to warrant the fee. As I said further up, I currently have a free trial and haven't found anything I'm interested in or don't already own, so I'd be wasting nearly £100 a year. Horses for courses, though. I can see how it would be good value if there were a couple of things in there you are interested in.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    Same here. I got a free trial which doesn't run out for another three weeks or so, and I've never used it. I've flicked through the list of games a few times and that's it. It just isn't worth the price of entry for me.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    Has there been any mention of Forza level rewards? Currently a little way off level 9 and debating whether I should grind for points between now and launch.

    Finally setup a PS2 HDD /FHDB

    No chips needed (mmmmmm, chips!). If you have a free mcboot card, you just need one of the network adapter things and a hard drive. Psx-scene.com has all the guides you need, links to software and so on.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    The Ultimate Edition includes: Car Pass Day One Car Pass VIP Formula Drift Car Pack Expansion Pack 1 Expansion Pack 2 At £30 more than the standard edition, it seems decent value when you consider the expansions were £16 each for 3.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    For the first time since GT6, I'm going to pre-order a game. I got £20 credit for my birthday, so I'm going to splurge on the Super Mega Deluxe version. I'll be getting any expansion packs anyway, so I may as well pay up front. Hoping there's more of a focus on racing than there was in 3. I've been playing 2 again and it's just a better racing game. Though I still had loads of fun with 3...

    Great gaming tutorials.

    Blood Bowl 2. The campaign starts with a load of matches that gradually introduce the game mechanics. So it starts off really simple, then the next match will have a new rule applied, until you're playing with the full rules. Like all good tutorials, I didn't even realise it was a tutorial until I'd been playing a good while.
