Forza 2: The Auction House

Forza 2: The Auction House

Microsoft and 10-Turn send us this new trailer of Forza 2, showcasing the Auction House. To put it simple, it's like Ebay to sell and buy your cars, replays etc. with the virtual money earned in the game. Nice idea !

It is like PGR3, when the cars race they look nice but when you go to photo mode or the garage the game looks even better.

It's funny cause you'll be eating those words when the game is released... PGR3 looks very close to this already.

Anyhoo, most games I see on the Xbox actually don't aim for realism... most are high contrast and are over exposed with vivid coloring... real life is super bland and un-interesting.

I'm too lazy to find direct comparisons of a car in the trailer, but you cans see how real life really don't show the vivid colors that are seen in most xbox games. One reason I've stopping taking interest in GT is that it looks like shit, yea it's going for realism but the real world sucks, it's boring. Look at Gears, it's anything but real with the intense amount of detail in your face all the time, but it' interesting to look at all the time.

I'll put an emphasis on rayy's post: He's right.

There's already some gameplay footage released, and my, I hope that that footage was really old, because I expected more from Forza 2 and all it's hyped-up stuff.

Eddy, do you really think this is ingame?

Um, wait a minute. You're trying to use a photo of real life, to show how real life actually looks? Have you ever been outside, it's actually pretty colorful. Maybe your city is cloudy. How about this image of a Camaro:

Pretty colorful. Real life does not look dull, I'm sorry.

Wow, how does Tiger Woods play on all these shitty, dull courses every week? No vivid colors at all!

Im guessing they used game assets, but its obviously prerendered. Which is horrible, because they even go into the menus and are giving off a misleading vibe. And those sounds in the menu remind me of splitercell. lol
Commented on 2007-03-08 23:22:26
Fucking hell, why do you guys turn every forza thread into some debate over which game has the bigger bollox ?

Picture the scene, game comes out, you buy it, you play it, you love it. You lot are never going to enjoy any games if you keep putting "lighting/shaders/colours" over everything, i for one am fully enjoying FF8 at the momment along with 11, yes there not the best looking chicks on the block but damn there great under the covers.

They need to release some direct-feed HD gameplay footage.
Commented on 2007-03-09 00:59:03
The game looks great in motion, so wtf is the argument about? This is about the Auction House, which sounds awesome from what i read bout it on Gamespot.

6 weeks before gold, they better be busting their behinds to match those renders.

Note to Microsoft:

Stop releasing all these CGI BS trailers of Forza


That's a very sony-esque move

This movie is without doubt prerendered. However it is also using the ingame assets which is common.

That being said, the game does look good in motion. It could still use polish as some areas still look very arcady, but it's improving in the looks department. I do expect it to really pleasant to play, but I also want a game that totally obliterates GTHD in the visual department. I'm not quite sure it's quite there yet... Sadly.

Why would you.. Sure, it'd be nice, but what i really wants is a game that obliterates GT:HD in the gameplay department. Which i'm pretty sure it's going to, at least for me.. :) I like Forza so much more than GT4, and i can't see Polyphony changing their gameplay that much. Sure they might add a bunch of stuff, but in essense it's probably going to be the same.. As is the case with Forza2.. :)

Forza2 does look great, judging from the last couple of screens they've released. The car models are incredible. And the degree of costumizing seem pretty mind blowing.. o.O

well Buktu, that's rather easy to explain. I want Forza to be as good (or better) as GT because I don't plan to own ps3 anytime soon and since I already have a xbox360 gettting forza seems like a good plan.

I did play the first one and while it was ok, it was hindered by three major issues.
1. No forcefeedback (MS fault, not 10thTurn)
2. no 60fps
3. none of my friends had an xbox. which meant they were all playing GT.

Now the game is more open to which console we play since none of them is buying it before GT5 is released (yes, we are racing game geeks) but I might persuade a few of them to go buy Forza2 IF it delivers on ALL fronts. That is what it takes, I'm afraid.

Well I think the reason people take note on the graphics so much is because we know (judging from the original) that it will be steller in the gameplay department. If it were indeed all about the gameplay, we wouldnt have even bought a 360 and just stuck with our xboxs. lol

About the game


What's up?

    amerakindesi @Tiz: who is joe staten? I agree with your point though (8 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz If Joe Staten is working on H6, then they have a lot less to worry about as he can steer Halo's cinematic direction very well. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I think the planets are aligning quite nicely for Halo 6. They don't have to worry so much about multiplayer save for map design. Now they can focus efforts on the campaign. (4 Hours ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 Best Xmas game evah! :D [url] (4 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo definitely relies more on individual skill, because every one is essentially the same character. halo is a still a great idea of a game. i hope they improve on "halo" for 6 (5 Hours ago)

    droezelke @Moonwalker: I agree. Other than the Metal Gear series, he didn't really present something as good. And I thought MGS5 was ultra boring (8 Hours ago)
