Traffic is bad enough when there are cars all around you. It's worse when they're on top of you and you're floating in a void. Also in today's Highlight Reel, a new Mario Bros world record, Destiny meets Tony Hawk Pro Skater, and more!
Forza Motorsport 4 was released this month. It's a great game—a great-looking game, too. Gran Turismo 5, released last year, is also a great-looking game. But which one looks better?
Despite the fact you can't drive it in the game, Forza 4 includes a Warthog from the Halo series, viewable in the game's gorgeous Autovista mode. If getting access to this is the first thing you plan on doing, well, here's how you do it.
I'm usually disappointed with most user-made video game content. Usually, if gamers are asked to make some art for a game, you get dicks and swastikas as far as the eye can see. But I checked Forza Motorsport 4's custom paint jobs section today and couldn't find any such thing in design section.
While we're still a week away from the big batch of downloadable content for Gran Turismo 5, the free 2.0 update drops today, delivering car interiors, 2011 NASCAR racers, and tons of fixes and tweaks, just in time to turn racing fans' heads away from Forza 4.
As the proud owner of a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder in dire need of a new manifold, I feel unqualified to say much more about Forza Motorsport 4 than the reviewers seem quite taken with it.
Brian Crecente: The Forza franchise continues to dance the fine line between a racing game too authentic to interest me and one designed to be intuitive enough for someone who likes going fast, but doesn't necessarily have the abilities to do so well. The new racing wheel and those amazing graphics are drawing me in,…
I love it when games are inspired by games that are nothing like them. Take sports games, and how they're up to their eyeballs in RPG mechanics like character creation and levelling. Or driving games.
Microsoft has announced that a demo for upcoming racer Forza 4 will be released on the Xbox Live Marketplace on October 3. The actual game is out just over a week later, on October 11 (Oct 14 for Europe).
Not content with throwing some Kinect support into Forza 4, Microsoft is also releasing a wireless, motion-controlled racing wheel for the game. It didn't sound too promising when it was first announced. And doesn't look too promising in action, either.
If you've ever wanted to hear the Top Gear star drawl "light plasma cannons", you should watch this clip of Jeremy Clarkson giving the rundown on the Warthog that'll feature in Halo 4.
One of Australia's most iconic muscle cars is coming to Forza Motorspot 4. In Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior, it was the Pursuit Special, a tuned and customized 1973 Ford XB Falcon GT.
One of the biggest surprises of this weekend's Halofest celebration of all things Halo here in Seattle is the news that Halo 4's Warthog will make its interactive debut this year, in a non-Halo game.
Because EA is evil, that's why. Kidding! See, EA has the license for Porsche cars, thus, making them available only via a sub-licensing deal. The cars did appear in Forza 3, and featured RUFs, which are tuned, unmarked Porsches.
Microsoft isn't kidding around when it comes to a Gamescom presence. The company's booth is enormous, encompassing everything from Kinect bubbles to Forza demo stations to the largest bank of computers playing Age of Empires I've ever seen.
The Limited Collector's Edition of Forza 4 will ship with an art book (with content written by Top Gear magazine staff), metal case and a range of extra cars, including the 2012 BMW M5 and classic American muscle cars. More info at the link. [Jalopnik]
There's been a wired Xbox 360 steering wheel for years now. I should know, there's one in my closet gathering dust. There's now a wireless Xbox 360 steering wheel. Think Mario Kart's plastic wheel, only a lot more expensive.
One of the first proper uses for Kinect outside ass-shaking and party tricks will be in upcoming racer Forza 4, when drivers get to use the camera to look around their car.
Three hits of news on the Forza 4 front today. First, Turn 10 Studios has revealed the official shot of the game box art. Second, they've announced that the "Hero car" for the game is the Ferrari 458 Italia. Third, they've announced the five pre-order cars — along with "showroom" shots of each. I can't tell you more…
