    I knew that was there. I just thought it wouldn't be a bad idea to make one in the Forza Horizon sub forum.

    If that trailer is all they are going to show I am going to be pissed. Regardless, it will be epic. Definitely do not see them holding 60 fps on this title. The draw distance will most likely be extremely restricted as well. I had read from a site a month or two back that Horizon might be on PC as well. I would **** myself if that were correct.

    "Action racer" not arcade. FM was considered an "action racer" as well.

    We still know nothing official regarding physics. Hopefully the Horizon booth will have demos, interviews, etc.

    Hopefully we will have that trailer uploaded in HD so I can watch it over and over again. Just like I did the FM4 trailers pre-launch lol.

    They just put up a bunch of info over at fm.net.
     
  14. The absence of cockpit driving in that trailer scares me. I might not buy this game.

    Not knocking it if it is TBH. It may be the first arcade racer I purchase in a long time. Especially if the livery editor is in. Even more do if I can transfer decals.

    Im not to bothered. F4 more than satisfys my needs.

    Difficult to tell from the trailer TBH. I remember GT5 trailer and that never lived up to it.
    Posistives to take is that Dirt and night are both in.
    I imagine it's playable at the booth there and that should answer some questions.
    Needs to be good with a wheel though for me.

    I wonder how they are going to swing liveries online if they have to be downloaded to be seen. I guess anytime you get within a certain vicinity of another car (before you see the car) that livery will start downloading.

    We don't even know if it is going to be an MMO style open world free roam like TDU.

    FM.net just says you can race other players in events.

    "trading paint with traffic or destroying roadside objects like fences and signs intensifies the action and multiplies your style score." -from FM site

    Yeah, with this carnage and no cockpit (maybe), this is looking more like nfs, than TDU :(

    If you don't like that then you can just stick to the circuit racing. Leave the open roads for the rest of us.

    With 65 types of road surface, any chance there counting duplicates.
    Example. Tarmac, wet Tarmac.

    See where I'm going here.

    If not could anyone name 50 of them.

    Of course it's going to be something like that. I mean what 65 types of road surface are there in the world? I mean what a toy truck overturned so now they got marbles on the road, an ice-cream truck blew up so now you have ice-cream physics? There's only but so many surfaces in the world.

    So rain is a strong assumption then.

    I'm pretty sure rain will be in or at least after rain. Some corny voiceover "Wow it's just came down cats and dogs over the next 5 miles of road , be careful out there Ace" and then you get wet conditions.

    That looks like so much fun. As a story line, getting to the festival first sure beats getting to a mafia boss to pay him off with stolen diamonds yada yada.

    The Autoblog article reassures me the game will have Forza's feel, too.

    Good link. Notable quotes IMO:

    Sounds like TDU, based on the real thing but not exact.

    This is good news. :)

    So much for a full FM4 list. Let's hope they strike the right balance between new vs old, and fast vs significant.

    Personally I don't care if there are no interior views, or fewer polygons on the cars, or if the game ends up resembling any other racing game (how does that matter??). With FM4 physics (tentatively confirmed), enough great driving roads to get lost, offroad/rally, night racing, and more to do than just lapping racetracks, this is SO my kind of game. :tup:

    Look to apex (hopefully) and "Kinect will also play a new role in the game in the form of a voice-activated GPS system." Awesome.

    And I am not dissapointed by the exclusion of cars from FM4. Personally, I couldn't give a crap about 50% of them.

    Damn, I'd love to see cars I could drive in real life too. I know lots of people like driving Ferraris and Lambos and stuff most of us could never afford, but I prefer the ones most of us could. Makes it lot more "realistic", which of course may not be what we're after here with this game... We'll see, we'll se....!
