I've been wanting a game similar to Test Drive Unlimited 2 and people in a thread a couple of years ago told me that what I'm looking for is Forza Horizon 2 (since The Crew is pretty terrible due to bad driving... why you would fuck up something like the driving in a racing game is beyond me).

Is Forza Horizon 3 going in a similar direction? If that is the case I'd need to upgrade to W10... which I really don't want to do.

On the other hand I did upgrade to Win XP back in the day so I could play X2.


The Horizon games are some of my favorites across all genres, and certainly best in class in racing/free roam!

Agreed. I had a TON of fun with Horizon 2. My wife at first enjoyed just being able to drive around in it (and wrecking MY cars!), but eventually she wanted to be able to discover her own roads and set her own speed trap times etc, so I created a new profile for her so she could have her own settings. Not much later she was actually doing races.

It's a really good and fun racer. It's not a sim, don't go looking for actual Forza levels of simulation in it, much less something like Assetto Corsa, but the open world and the cool stuff to do make it well worth it if you like driving games.

But is the driving any good? Like I said, I loved the idea of TDU2 but the driving was just okay and that is also the reason why I stayed away from The Crew.
I'm not a sim guy, although I do play Dirt Rally with a wheel and without assists and it is so much fun, but I would like the cars to feel different and not be too arcadey.

In Horizons 1 the driving was light years ahead of TDU2. So I would imagine that it was even more refined for H2. But in TDU2 you really could go anywhere, as H1 was more stick to the road.

I played the 1st one. Honestly rather have Forza 6 full.

Ehh, it's all down to what you like in your games. The Forza numbered series is super dry and I don't find it very engaging. I got F5 with my Xbone and was very disappointed in it. You spend as much time in menus as you do racing, which isn't my idea of a good time. Races in the Horizon games require you to drive to them the first time (can teleport to locations once you've been there). The game world is actually something you explore, it's not just shit on the side of the track.

I spent more time play Virus tag in the Forza # series (and having more fun) then in Horizons. In Horizons cars aren't really ALL that defined (more sim meets need for speed'ish/arcade) where as in Forza I could take a awesome little Lotus with amazing handling and off the line power and utterly destroy cars that people picked for just say speed.

In Forza Horizons 2 you can buy a Volkswagen Transporter (aka the Bus), and modify it so that it goes 0-100mph in 4.4 seconds. And then drag race it against people in Hennesey Venom GTs, and beat the living shit out of them.

Winner: Horizons.

Anyone can drive in a straight line Creston, but when you're playing the ultimate game of tag in very expensive vehicles you drive it like ya stole it

Dead Rising 3 was on Steam so there isn't a reason to freak out yet about the Windows store.

What, the first comment wasn't "Uplay too bad lulz"?

This...this IS Bluesnews, right? I thought only cranky assholes were on here.

As a lover of the AC series I have Uplay and haven't had any issues with it. Ubisoft allowed me to link my Steam and Ubi account together and so far haven't done anything for me to hate it (except the giant icons for games). If anything it's like Battle.net Launcher, tells me who's in what games, easy to join them from the launcher etc.

How exactly is this game going to work when it's so 'cloud dependant'?

Only thing I can think of is that they are going to launch this with the updated Xbone.

Don't be silly, Helf. ITS TEH CLOUD MAJICS! IT WILL WORK BY MAJIC! OF THE CLOUDS!

If I wanted magic clouds I'd smoke pot or crystal meth.

I don't mind Windows 10, but I can't stand the Windows Store and have no fucking desire to deal with it.

That being said, are we getting the FULL fucking game or just part of the game like with Forza and Halo?

I thought about clicking that, but then I realized I stopped giving a shit about anything Notch has to say about anything quite a while ago.

Actually it would be worth your time to click on it. Notch pretty much nailed someone talking shit, which was worth admission alone
