FORZA 5 ...

Post by ZAR Eries on Thu May 23, 2013 4:03 am

Well hi Guys,

Just read this:
How will this create a better gaming experience than the Xbox 360? According to the demos from game makers like EA and Activision, the power of the Xbox One will mean more impressive graphics - from the car tricks in Forza Motorsports 5 to the ability to knock down buildings for cover in Call of Duty: Ghosts. Activision actually showed a side-by-side comparison of COD: Ghosts and COD: Modern Warfare 3 and with a new Activision-developed engine, characters in Ghosts on Xbox One looked much more real.

Car tricks in Forza 5, do you remember the Alpine Jump, lol is this now a feature? Who knows?

The graphics look good already...I hope(and doubt) they can put some formula cars in the game,more tracks,better pit stops and bikes(not a chance).

I'm with you DC, forza 2 pit options, TIRE WEAR that will be functional. I don't like mandatory pit stops. If I can tune my car, and drive smooth enough to go an hour with fewer pits than the competition, that should be what dictates pit strategy. More tracks certainly would be great. This same dozen, though continuously challenging, should be augmented. NO to open world horizon style, its fun enough, but not the direction I hope the franchise is taking.
now, BACK TO WORK!;!

Yes, but I think this time they will be very very close to this because of the new Xbox.

I'm throwing around the idea of having separate events and World Championships for Xbox 360 FM4 racers and Xbox One FM5 racers next year so that our members can have the option of whether to pay $560 to continue racing with us. What do you guys think?

very good idea Abe, that's the kind of advanced thinking you will need here.  You will want to think in visionary future tense terms, so that you can stay ahead of the members and plan for the future. That way when you roll out your idea and do the reveal, you will be ready to do it as though you have been doing it for a long time already.  Everything should always be in place and ready to go BEFORE you go public with a full reveal.

Underwhelmed yet?  After watching the Dan Greenawalt E3 interview, that sickening feeling of a little bit of throw-up rising up and stinging the back of my throat is starting to set in.  I know it's awful early to judge FM5 on any level, but boys, I've been here since the beginning, and know when I'm being BS'd by T10.  And I'm smelling the BS already.

How you say? Let me explain. The graphics are great of course, but shouldn't they be?  I expect them to be, don't you?  New Box, new graphics engine, it should be good. So why go on and on about how the graphics are so amazing?  Why go on and on about how the graphics have been in the works as the main point of interest for the past 4 years? 

Let me ask you; how many times have we told these idiots that it's not about the damn graphics!  How many times have people said it's about the game play, and that if the game play isn't there, then to hell with the damn graphics.  How many times have we said we would rather have a great racing game than great graphics?

How many times have we all scoffed at the Forzavista thing, and opening the doors of the cars. It is the least used feature of FM4 because no one cares about it.  Look at how little time you have spent there in your stats, and you'll see it is next to nothing compared to racing.  But once again T10 has pursured this failed feature and expanded it to all the cars!? WTF!? Why would you waste programming resources on something no one uses??? 

When Dan was asked about day night cycles, and weather, all I could hear was crickets! He looked totally put off by the question, and even ashamed to have to meekly admit, "no, not in this version."  Really? Meanwhile your competitor (GT5) already has this on their old console, but you couldn't put this in on the new Xbox ONE?  Really??

Then there was the talk about the "drivatar" and how cool and amazing that was going to be to have a computer mimic my style and skill and make money for me.  Well, that is sort of cool, but should that be one of the primary features? Tell you what Dan, why don't you just have the computer buy your game and play it for me, how bout that? (Okay, that was a little cynical)  But c'mon! Is this all you got??  After years of people from the community begging you to stop with the "car culture" crap and start getting serious about competitive racing, it's like they (T10) are completely tone deaf!

So far, not one microscopic mention of anything to do with Forza becoming a better racing game.  Not one!  Gobs and Gobs of eye candy crap, but not one word on any updated features having to do with racing. No controlled pits, no flag system, no pace car, no practice sessions, no tuning in lobby, no changing track conditions, no updated tire wear and fuel consumption, no stagging for drag racing, no live tree, etc. etc., just nothing.

And as I listened to Dan, I got the strong impression that even he would like us all to forget about all the BS he sold us about his games in the past.  Suddenly all that "great" stuff about FM3 and then FM4 isn't so great anymore, and wasn't even all that exciting to him at the time.  Well thanks a lot Danny boy.

Though it is very early guys, I just have that icky feeling that FM5 is just a prettier FM4, and not an actual improvement on what is supposed to be a racing sim.  The problem is, no one at T10 is a real car guy.  No one is a real racing fan either.  What they are, are computer geeks who like programming the looks of cars more than racing them.  They don't appear to be taking any steps closer toward a better racing sim is my observation at this time, but at least they are consistent.  Are you starting to taste the throwup too?
