@slowbird: Here's that thing I wanted to tell you about last night.
This topic is locked from further discussion.
Good to see you guys are still going strong.
Question.. Forza 5, Xbox one, how many people here are gonna jump on that when it comes out?
Dead Rising 3 and GTA V already have me sold, it would be great to know some Race night action would come from it too.
I think as a proper send-off of the Xbox 360, we should do some kind of special event, whether it be at our normal Race Night time, or some other day of the week, where we go through all the Forza games...we can play Forza 3 and drive on the long version Rally de Positano, and that stupid New York track, and we can play Forza 2 and the ridiculous Sidewinder track in all its variations...we could even hit Forza Horizon again for some rallying/virus tag/randomness.
Remember that Panoz race from last week on Tsukuba? Remember when some (myself included) blamed the crash on @slowbird? I saved the replay to see what happened and finally got the video just right to see the important bits. Turns out the initial crash wasn't his fault.
From the video. I'm in first. Slowbird is in second. Sushi in 3rd. Hay4z in 4th. The camera is following Hay4z. Give the video a watch.
The video absolves him of some of the blame. Just something I thought was worth looking into. What a race though, huh?!?
We all knew it was going to happen, and now we know what we're getting. Basically the same stuff as last year. *sigh* Never again will we see a Forza LE as cool as FM3, aka the best Forza.
I think the VIP thing is useless. I'd rather see the season pass tied to the LE like with Halo 4. I probably wouldn't have gotten any of H4's DLC maps if it wasn't for the LE. Also, my FM4 art book is still in the shrink wrap. Glad they didn't waste time with that this time around.
So if anyone is still reading posts here, something interesting to know. Criterion is now only ~15 employees and the majority of the team left to form Ghost UK, the developers behind NFS Rivals. I don't think that's enough for me to buy a second racing game at launch, but definitely something to know for the future.
Hey, I finally finished that hyper series video! Was the wait worth it?! No, definitely not. It's kind of long too, so if you watch it you might need like a sandwich and a beverage before embarking on the adventure. I didn't do a normal recap type video because its been so long that I can't remember any positions, laps or winners. Also, there were too many individual races for that to be fun to keep track of anyways. So instead I just kind of mushed everything together. Way easier.
I did have fun writing fake-ish driver biographies for each of the participating drivers in the style of like an old arcade racing game (e.g. Jet Moto 2) or those wcw trading cards jeff reads on UPF. I ended up not using them because I hit the description character limit on youtube (I didn't even know there was one) and because they might possibly upset some people.
I'm basically done with another jelly car video too, but I'm not really liking it. I may fix it or maybe just forget about it. I don't know.
Wow, as we've taken to the TweetZone, we've let this thread slip, haven't we? That's just as well, because in roughly two weeks, it will be locked, and a brand new Race Night thread for Forza Motorsport 5 will spring up in its wake.
We celebrate four years of wild, awesome, and straight-up dumb racing tonight. I suggest perusing this playlist if you need a reminder of just what the hell's happened since 2009. Otherwise, I hope to see many of you in the lobby at 10:30 PM EST.
Three more weeks of Forza 4.
Our final Forza 4 Race Night is about to begin, and so this thread comes to a close.
The next major thread for Giant Bomb Forza Race Night, featuring Forza Motorsport 5 and a new start time of 9:30 PM EST, will be up within the next 12 hours or so! I hope you'll join us then as we carry forward into a scary new world.
EDIT: Oh, right, we might have parting words. I'll temporarily unlock this until the new thread's back up.
