Giving you a real good look at the new and improved track known as The Green Hell, this unusual race was an in-house challenge at Turn 10 studios.
Man I love the Nordschleife. If I had $120-150k to spare I would buy a apt near the track.
LOL. That would be pretty cool. Do you race in real life?
I've been a track instructor for 2 yrs at TGP...it's a small road course near the Talladega speedway. Mostly SCCA stuff. I've tracked mostly at TGP, Road Atlanta, and Barbers. The best track..well isn't a track at all. Ever been to Deal's Gap? AKA the Dragon's Tail? (TN Chat area) 318 turns in 11 miles with a 5,000 ft drop on one side! If you got balls go full speed in the wet! I've taken all my cars there. 00' DC2 ITR 04' MK4 R32 06' MK5 GTi 03' Lotus Elise(not my car but a friends car)
hmmm R32 love that car, I myself am planning on buying either a Skyline R34 Nur spec, RX-7(FD),RX-7(FC),RX-8,240SX, or an AE86. (initial D got me into cars)
That's awesome. Sadly my racing experience has been mainly limited to the virtual world. I am interested in getting into the real thing, but I don't really have the money yet to support such a habit...maybe in a few more years. In the meantime I feel incredibly lucky that I can even experience some of excitement I would in real life due to the increasing realism of these impressive sim games!
Agreed! THIS GAME IS FUN MAN I LOVE DRIVING THE CARS, LOOK SO TRUE TO LIFE COMPARED TO OTHER GAMES. The sense of speed is great and the braking and gas is unmatched.
but definitely improved from the previous builds. I did notice a quick moment of pop-in near the beginning though (when the camera's faced to the side of the track), but I'm probably just nitpicking.
Wow, this vid shows this game looks really good in motion and its much better when you play it live for yourself. I can't wait for the final game because the demo is a blast to drive but I know the online will be sick. oh and LoveHate so far in the demo its super smooth, NOT one pop-in or slow down ever....its freakin smooth.
and I think the video just skipped a frame or two. It's not pop-in (I take that back). I still think Project Gotham has better lighting though; for some reason Forza just comes off as unnatural.
Does it have any in-car camera angle like the one in PGR3 where you get to see out of the interior of the car? The only thing that's really noticable though is the forced lighting on the streets and onto the cars., or the tellie has had it's brightness set a bit too high?... Game seems good.
No. Do you know how long it would take to create all of those interiors for the 300+ cars? Not to mention creating the weight reduced versions. That's a lot of data, too.
Hm. GT5 has teased that they'll be incar views.
Heh... don't get me started on GT5. I'll believe it when I see it.
Deep, I don't want to derail things, but since you brought it up, with all the inside info you seem to have...Do you know if the in-car view is still being planned for GT5. Last time it was shown was E3 05' or TGS and we know how accurate those trailers have been so far....
Yuh I don't really want to derail, as this vid looks really good. I'll pm you Rybnik
loving the look of this game, i cant wait to buy it! =D
its gonna be great
#7 go out side or drive around and look at paint jobs on cars when the sun is gleeming off the paint you'll see radiation(sun glare) not color. They did a great job i dont think gamers are use to it and dont see what the devs have done yet. If it bothers you just race maps with lots of cloud cover lol or play racers with 5th generation effects. Caint wait for the full game i can see in this video the real time dirt is enabled but was not added to the demo etc. I don't think the demos is as complete as the real game and i'm not talking about modes,tracks & cars etc.
That is such a bummer... Now that I'ved been treated to so much eye-candy on the PGR3 Series with it's stunning in-car shots ( this is the benchmark on which other - racing sim/arcade should follow... ) as well as Test Drive Unlimited, GTR2 - on PC and the up-coming DIRT: Colin McRae. This has now been one of my basis if ever I was to buy a certain racing game ( don't really care if it was a sim/arcade ). Also that this type of technology is getting more cheaper and a little bit easier for the programmers to utilize, hope they include this in the future... It just brings that much more oommph, don't you think? It is truly boring when your're there playing and staring at what? - just the speedo/tacho ( snooze.. ) on the tip of a hood ( more snooze.. ), asphalt/grass ( really more snooze... ) or like playing an RC game with the back of the car in front of you. Plus this is the 21st century, Hammer-time has long been gone, everything before this is already Last-Generation...
forza 2 has 300+ cars thats way more than PGR3, GTR2 and Dirt put together. IF foza 2 had only 80-100 cars then im sure there would be an in-car view.
Im not gonna say its amazing only because it can still be improved. I hope the amount of cars they have in this game are above 150.
