More Forza 3!

More Forza 3!

I'm just back from a press conference from Microsoft about Forza Motorsport 3 where I got to film the final version of the game in motion. I've had quite a few issues with the camera but some videos turned alright, like this first one running at 60 fps :)
Update 5: Che Chou of Turn 10 just contacted me and basically ordered me to put the two Fujimi Kaido videos back online. So, there they are for your enjoyment.

Awesome! :D Looks just beatiful.

I agree... the track especially looks gorgeous and a far cry from the bland ones features in the last game.
Commented on 2009-09-18 22:59:50
looks beautiful. I could nit pick some.. but theres no getting away from the fact that its silky smooth and looks great.

And they actually showed a different track!

I'd love to just drive slowly around that having a good look. :D

smooth, like butter!

Amalfi Coast all over my face.

I especially like these unrealistic “anime” like clouds in the background. Looks awesome even so the town itself looks a little bit blank.
I get the feeling that I will enjoy these few fantasy tracks more than the actual race tracks. The elevations levels, richer environments and more creative layouts look like fun to me.

Good lord this game is smooth as hell. Also the cars seem to have a physical presence that I haven't really seen before in a game and I can't quite put my finger on why that is.

Ishigami: What are "anime" clouds? Do you mean Amalfi or Kaido?

After playing about 2 hours of Need for Speed Shift on my pc with a racing wheel and all graphics at MAX... Looking at Forza 3 is actually pretty damn impressive. I know you can't compare both as one if a Simulator and the other an Arcade racer (Not as much as previous version however) but wow Forza3 is smoooth to watch. I'll certainly drop Shift when it'll come out!

Just want to add something else... If you look carefully you can clearly see the game isn't 60 FPS locked. There's some very apparent slowdown especially when turning. It does look sluggish at time...

Nice! but I think it sits too high up on the Cockpit.

My desktop is filled with Forza 3 vids, but curiously enough, Im not a racing fan, as a matter of fact I dont even own 1 racing game.

I saw judders that disappeared when I scrubbed back and watched again, quite often it is just the player or your CPU causing it.
Commented on 2009-09-19 00:07:58
Probably your PC. The game is locked at 60 fps period.

I'm sure the demo we're getting in a few days should make the wait a little more bearable.

Is it just me or was there a raindrop on the windscreen in the Fujimi Kaido video?
Commented on 2009-09-19 00:17:23
HOLY SHIT LOOKS INSANE..
Commented on 2009-09-19 00:18:00
Kaido just completely sold me on this game, damn why the F does it not support my G25, forcing me to use the crappy MS Wheel.
Also being a big GT5 fan(Fanboy) I hope GT5 has it's own touge Initial D homage track, because Forza3 is looking very slick at the moment.

Amazing! looks just amazing :O

Oh wow, the NY track actually looks pretty damn good...Nice!

This games visuals are very hit and miss to me. Some levels look so so while other levels look good. The same applies to the cars...
Commented on 2009-09-19 01:42:29
My GOD man... these video's are beautiful!! I'm feeling me heart racing faster the more I'm watching these vid's!! I think I'm hooked up to the engines! :)

About the game


What's up?

    amerakindesi @Tiz: who is joe staten? I agree with your point though (9 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] (5 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)
  • docLEXfisti
    docLEXfisti Snatcher was awesome, played it on the European Mega CD (7 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    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)
