Forza 2: One minute for your ear's pleasure

Forza 2: One minute for your ear's pleasure

As a change from the images, and since we are still not allowed to do any videos, I'm putting online this one minute long audio file of a Porsche 962 on the Nürburgring. It's encoded in Dolby Surround, so make sure you listen to this on your 5.1 audio system if you have one.

Thank you sir. Very clever.

Now how 'bout a series of a few thousand screenshots that we can combine into one long animated .gif? ;)

He, I could do that easily in fact ;)

Nice work. Which view is this taken from? Somehow the engine doesn't sound very "raw", like it would in say GTR2.

Holy crap. Sounds amazing on a 5.1 system. Thanks so much, Blim.

Edit: I've been a member for 360 days, on the day of the dash update. That's got to count for something.

If you really want to see Forza 2 in motion you can use the following link for a little preview:

http://www.tilt.tv/extras/tiltplayer/FLVPlayer7.sw...

Just select "Tilt.tv 13-07 Gamestyle-Forza 2" from the right. You can also see many other gamerelated videos from that site.

@BlimBlim

Why you are still not allowed to take vids? Other sides (worser one's) are allowed to do ... does this depends on the version or a special agreement? Thanks!

Ps.: Great sound. Thanks fot the effort.

On worldwide releases we get it first :D, i.e halo 2 we were playing online a day before everyone else got it (sadly no one else was online to play against lol).

I'm never sure what to think of this, as I don't know how the car sounds in real life, I think this sounds pretty bad. Ah, guess it's because I don't like cars with that high pitched zooming sound. The classics, those make a nice sound, the really monstrous bulky motor sound, that's what I like.
Commented on 2007-05-09 11:41:27
Can you please take some pics of the Shelby Cobra? Please:)

BlimBlim,

Could you tell me about the music, are you able to have your own MP3 when you race, how is the ingame Music anyway, any famous songs?
Commented on 2007-05-09 13:52:11
No music while racing, at least by default. The menu music has a few well known stuff, but nothing I care about.

Commented on 2007-05-09 14:10:08

You can play your own mp3s during any game on the 360. Just go into music on the guide.

It's high pitched cause it's turboloaded. It's a pure racing car after all. A BMW sounds great in Forza 2, and I bet a Shelby Cobra or any of the US Musclecars will sound like it would eat you alive... ^^

Great idea BlimBlim, at least we can now avoind these discussions. :D

Do the '69 Dodge Charger next please Blim, the sound is very distinctive and people who saw Grindhouse will know what it should sound like.
Commented on 2007-05-09 17:52:00
Well, if you are doing more sounds Blim, you should lower the sound of the tires and perhaps even environment to zero so we can hear the engine. Or just offer the two downloads, I don't know.

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Still very different. More like Diablo but the "game feel" is not as polished. Systems are more well designed, but I have to give it to Diablo when it comes to fit and finish. (9 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (10 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (10 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yes.. the passive skill tree is pretty insane. It has a healthy mix of rigid decision making in its passive tree and flexibility in the active skill system. (10 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Path of Exile is an endlessly playable action RPG and Pillars of Eternity is a turn-based single player game w/ a party system. (10 Hours ago)
