Re: Forza Horizon 3 is pretty damn great

I was actually thinking about buying this game, but €100 for the full game? Still? That seems a bit steep for a game that's almost a year old.

The standard version is 70, and I like the game too much.. Just bought it, no regrets.

Downloading the demo now...
Be aware that the demo can't save your progress. I was pretty pissed when I found out.. But then again the demo is insanely good.

I like the Dukes Of Hazard paintjob.

Shameless selfbump.

I played the first 2 races, and am about to buy the game. Had a big fucking smile on my face the whole time. It's been awhile since a game made me feel this way.

Hehe, I had the exact same feeling! Bought the base game and the Porsche Expansion.

Playing it a bit further, I'm starting to get the feeling it's a lot like Test Drive Unlimited 2, but better looking.

I really liked TDU2, so, nice.

Time to modify/tune some of my rides ::3:

What are you driving?

On a slightly related note, I found that Queen really works well as a soundtrack. Anyone have an idea how to get around the stupid paid Groove crap?

No idea how to get around groove.

Drive a Cayman GT4 now, and I love it.

Re: Forza Horizon 3 is pretty damn great

Somehow I knew you'd take the Cayman.

I saw my favorite car, the Honda NSX, and immediately bought it. I was playing around with a design for it, but decided just plain red looked way nicer.
I took photo's, but I can't seem to find them :\

Download the Forza Hub app, that's where your photos will appear.

Man I've basically played this game every chance I got. Love it.
Only wish I'd get money faster.

Also curious about the "best" cars in every class, gonna look for a list.
Also how hard is tuning? I'm a bit lost in that menu..

I have had no issue with money so far, but I did get really lucky and get a crapload of credits from the level up spinner.
As for "best car", it's not really relevant. Whatever car you pick, the AI cars will be toned down or up to that car's level. So if you get a S2 car at 988, the other cars are around 990. If you get a B car at 730, the other cars are around 730 as well. Just pick a car you like driving.
The only reason to get a car with a higher speed is to nail the speedtraps.

Nice ride!

And are you sure? I had to race my Peugeot rally car against Lambos and of course I couldn't keep up on the straights :/



Finally won a Horizon edition car!



These cars give you special boosts: http://forza.wikia.com/wiki/Horizon_Edition_Cars



Bought this one via the auction house

Pretty sure about the skill matching. The stats might not be the same, but the overall performance score will be somewhat equal. As far as I've seen, anyway.

Oh damn, kinda forgot about this game.

I finished all the exhibition races, completed all the showcases, managed to get all festival sites to level 5, found every board, 3-starred every challenge, and photographed every car available. I also managed to complete 35/65 championships, and am finishing those up as well.

The only thing I can't complete is the Barn Finds, I'm stuck on 18/20 :/ The completionist in me is howling.
