I'm pleased to see Infineon in the tracklist... finally! Not so happy however to see car bowling and soccer... keep it racing please. And they remapped the controls... I thought the old ones were perfectly fine.

Something I just realized that I HATE about Forza... the gear noise is way too loud compared to the other sounds, and sounds the same in all cars. Sort of irritating. I want to hear engine noise, not gear whine.

I do like this preview of how the game has changed. Love the new career mode and how you can choose prize cars. Also the world map thing is cool, zoom into a satellite view of the track. And Clarkson...

In FM3 you could change that sourt of thing in the "audio" section, you could make engine/tire/opponent/music sound louder or softer. Idk about ear noise though.

Don't know if anyones posted this yet, but here is the "official" car list. Don't know if it's real or not, but I think it looks incomplete (only 1 viper, and its the Competition Coup.).

Where's the best place to preorder? Are they doing some thing where you can only get certain cars if you preorder again? I was pissed to no end that I could get in a ZR1. And no, I'm not going to buy additional car packs.

I hate gamestop but it's the best place unless you don't care if you wait 1-2 days after it's out you can go amazon. I'm picking mine up from gamestop at midnight because i'm a nerd like that.

Limited ed are sold out at most places already.

I can't see how any GT5 fanboi could claim GT5's graphics were superior either, even in the 5% of the time when you were on a 'premium' track with 'premium' cars.

Very, very impressive

Getting Clarkson was their smartest move ever, that little intro he did sums it up perfectly.

Only Oct. 11th?!? I thought I was waiting longer, not a good time to start a new school term...

Preordered. Still waiting to see nordschleife on the track list. Preferably a reworked one with better accordance to the real thing.

The worst part? The Warthog's only viewable in Auto Vista mode, and won't be driveable in actual races. We suppose that would be unfair, because, you know, chaingun.

I call him a liar because when he said they weren't able to test it for obvious reasons, so we'll have to test it out ourselves.

Me too. I usually don't do demos, since I like the full experience at once. I feel like demos ruin that, but it was there on the dashboard, and I'm bored.

DL complete!

It's not bad. First time I've seen an AI not blindly follow the racing line. Otherwise pretty much the same. Got thoroughly depressed when I scored only in the 39% after two laps in every "rival" race, but other than that I like it. Stupid track.
