Why do they always have these crappy police cars that would never keep up IRL

car games are fun and all but they are nothing like what that ad was talking about. so now games are being advertised in the way that any product is, selling aspiration and emotion rather than the product but does this ad really make you want to buy forza 4?

IMO the only people that are sold on products by this type of marketing are literally stupid. its an entertaining ad and very well made, not denying that... but like the celeb cod:bo ad, it has nothing to do with the game and i dont think we should be encouraging it when most of the people (at least I hope) on QGL and other gaming sites still like to be sold by a nice raw gameplay stream. because Im not looking forward to the day that we dont even get that... its already begun with review embargoes that end after the game is out.

not overly concerned with these things if it has an awesome driving model (like forza usually does) and damage

Forza 3 has these things and Porsche cars.

Definitely waiting on the reviews for this one.

There is a demo up on Xbox Live

The graphics certainly looks much nicer, especially the interior and lighting

Agreed, GT5 looks pretty but is a useless driving simulator. The physics alone are frustratingly bad.

Hopefully Forza 4 doesn't commit the same error.

I'm starting to think i need to give iRacing another go. Only for the v8 racing tho I feel.
Need someone to hook me up with the best way to get into it.
it seemed tedious to the max last time i tried...I really don't want to drive s*** cars for 6 months before I can drive something decent. I can even put up with the sub standard gfx if it really is that good driving.
I understand I may not be able to race in the big leagues until I get my s*** together - but do I really have to drive mums mazda before I can use the better cars?
Had a go at GT5 at a mates place recently but the low res, average gfx and the fact that I'm a PC user put me off. The wheel n pedals are staying hooked up to the pc..
One thing I was amazed at in GT5 was how incredibly f*****g lame the music was! WTF!? I wanted to kill someone when i got to the first menu. Yeah you can turn it of but really WTF!?!?
are they really that clueless?

I sold my last fast car after I got so f*****g sick of being pulled over by the cops. Just cos of what the car was - not cos I was doing anything wrong.
Sticking to virtual now.

hell yea dethon. it rocks.

yea you have to race the mx5 for a while to prove that youre safe enough to earn the D or C license, then youre right to drive the v8 in the monday night league.
]-[itman from quake races these also :]

the v8 is very tricky to drive but equally rewarding, vid

just costs a lot. about 200 for a years subscription + all the tracks. annoying but worth it.

I was into it for a while, but the lack of official races in anything after the MX5's was a big turn off.

If i knew I could jump on and find an official race in any class I wanted at any time, i'd keep my subscription, but as it is, not that interested at the moment.

lol I would do almost anything to see Hitman's face if /when I got good enough to beat him.
Like a nightmare returned to haunt him ;-D

$200 a year isn't so bad if it kicks ass I guess - looks like it does.
Mind if I PM you for some knowledge sometime?


I'm needing to step up from the dirt games - I hold most of the WRs on all the circuits - which really says to me that I need to try something harder. Its more exciting chasing faster drivers.

The fanatec wheels are supported by the 360 and are apparently good. Pricey though.

Dethon tried rfactor? I just won a 20 car race at Bathurst which was highly competitive. The mod is fantastic, V8factor unleashed 2011. Pretty easy to drive 90%, but seriously hard to max the cars - need to use all driving techniques like good throttle modulation, power on oversteer + straightening the wheel, and obv trailbraking + left foot braking etc.

no haven't tried rfactor - will look into it. I do all the left foot trailbraking etc etc in dirt3.
( i know its not a sim but to beat the best in the world you gotta be doing that stuff)
Does rfactor suffer from any cheating issues?
Thanks for suggestion!

In about a year I've only come across 2 noobs who were cheating, and we permabanned them.

edit - these guys http://transtasmanrivals.forumotion.com/ take things pretty light heartedly but have very high driving standards, no ramming/using you as a brake in corners etc. and if someone does accidentally hit you, they wait to redress.

Tuesdays is a new series, DRM revival; saturday is the V8s (series matching the real things + visiting overseas tracks in between), and sundays Touring Car Legends (this weekend at Lakeside).

If you can beat me on Saturdays or Sundays you win a prize.

tempting but simple - i'm a student, iracing costs way too much.

Come join TCL, start at 6:30 this sunday lakeside, i will be seriously impressed if you can be competitive out of the box

awesome thanks guys! I will follow up on both of these. I know I won't be competitive out of the box - it does take me a while to get up to speed usually.
