Hey Forza Horizon fans! Get those cameras out! As the game makes you well aware of (if you've done any of the outpost PR stuff) Forza games have always had a photo mode so lets see that hot hot car porn. Simply take a picture in game then upload it to Forzamotorsport.net then go to the website. You can instantly log into Forzamotorsport.net with your XBL credientals since it is a Microsoft run site. So no signing up for an account or anything! Then, grab your photo's and upload them here for all to see. Show off your designs or just designs you thought were cool! I'll get this kicked off with a picture I just took of a Subaru WRX '11 featuring a High School of the Dead DxD character design on it. I really thought the pink & black were pretty cool on this thing.

Fuck. Now I want this game just to have cars with awesome designs like this on them. That car is awesome bro.

#3 Posted by Demoskinos (14512 posts) -

@InfiniteGeass: Heh. Yeah, part of the fun is seeing all of the crazy designs people come up with.

#4 Posted by ImmortalSaiyan (4673 posts) -

Do designs from other Forza games transfer to Horizen?

#5 Posted by Demoskinos (14512 posts) -

@ImmortalSaiyan: You can't import designs but you can import Vinyl groups that you made from Forza 4.

So you just layer those properly to remake the image? Are there lots up on the store now?

Whipp it!

#8 Posted by Demoskinos (14512 posts) -

@ImmortalSaiyan: Well you can if you want. You can just go in and buy full car designs too. Although I'm guessing most of the people who make this stuff make the vinyls first then just position them on the car instead of making everything on the fly.

@Demoskinos: pink and black always look great on a car, it's the way I gotta roll with a car. Oh, and I'll be sure to upload a picture soon!

The only thing I love more than someone calling their car their "whip" is when someone calls their PC their "rig."

Crap I've had it backwards this whole time!

#16 Posted by Stahlbrand (835 posts) -

Most of my driving is in various BMWs, per personal preference, but I had a race I needed a "B" class car with very high final top speed to win in the orange bracket, so I took the barn-find Cuda and dropped all engine upgrades into it (on stock tires, oy...). Had to paint it though, like how grey/black/orange works together.

After winning that race, I topped it out at a high "S" ranking (mostly by dropping good rubber on it) and blew the freeway speed trap at 328km/h.

#17 Posted by EarlessShrimp (1631 posts) -

Here's the latest one, I bumped it up to the top end b class for the street races, and decided to actually paint one. I didn't put much effort int but I like it. And yes, it does say sexy on the roof.

I agree about pink and black.
#18 Posted by Demoskinos (14512 posts) -
@Stahlbrand Simple yet classy I like it!

#19 Posted by UberExplodey (923 posts) -

I did it.

#20 Posted by RoyaleWifCheese (540 posts) -

This was a regular-ass M5, but then...

I remembered Halloween.
#21 Posted by Sparky_Buzzsaw (6037 posts) -

@RoyaleWifCheese: Love that design. I made a Halloween-themed car for Forza 4 and posted pics of it in the Forza 4 picture area. I might recreate it in Forza Horizon, but I doubt I'll buy it in time for Halloween.

That feeling when you're not sure if somebody just thinks it's a cool skull.

I'm debating getting a used 360 just for this. This game looks incredible.

#26 Posted by Andy_117 (169 posts) -

I should probably buy this game, huh.

I bought Forza 3 used for like $5, and I'm enjoying it, but... damn. Damn.

#27 Posted by david3cm (635 posts) -

Hot damn, this game looks pretty awesome.

#28 Posted by Carncarn (32 posts) -
@RoyaleWifCheese Great song, great looking car. Wish i had a 360 to play this, you guys are killing me

#29 Posted by DukesT3 (1888 posts) -

I think I might just buy this, Most Wanted and AC3 this weekend.

#30 Posted by RoyaleWifCheese (540 posts) -

@Strife777: Yeah, like I said, I remembered Halloween.

@Stahlbrand: Breaks my heart. I've known of people that wear shirts, but couldn't name one Misfits song that wasn't covered by AFI. Ugh.

#31 Posted by Strife777 (1490 posts) -
@RoyaleWifCheese Wow, I didn't even know they had a song titled Halloween. I feel like kind of an asshole now, my apologies for that.

I've seen people say Forza 4 is about as good, but in a different sort of way. Do you think this one is blatantly better than 4 in every way, or if I prefer on-track racing and car maintenance would 4 be a cheaper alternative?

#36 Posted by mfpantst (2574 posts) -

This bull has wings!

#37 Edited by Slaughtahouse (7 posts) -

How is Horizon compared to the originals? I'm big on the professional races and all the tuning. Does this game offer the same customization options? Haven't touched my xbox in... well a very long time.

Blatantly better in every way? Absolutely not. Better? Probably, but it's arguable. More accessible? Sure. Better atmosphere, tone, and feel-good vibes? Certainly.

I look at it this way, though some people will likely find it contentious. It's not a Forza game, but ostensibly a sandbox Project Gotham. It plays, feels, sounds, and rewards like a Project Gotham game. As a person who was obsessed with Project Gotham Racing 2, that means so goddamned much. The driving isn't as rigid and sterile as it is in the Forza titles, but it still maintains enough integrity to trick yourself into thinking you're really driving these vehicles.

The obsessively-detailed tuning is gone from Horizon, and you'll miss it at first. But you are still choosing from a plethora of upgrades for your cars and each one can make a noticeable difference. There are dozens of configurations for each vehicle, so you'll still get the sense--even if you're driving the same model of car as someone else on the track--that your setup is unique to your sensibility.

---

I hate those people who say "they're too different to compare" about games they simply don't want to judge against each other. But in truth, Forza 4 and Horizon appeal to different perspectives. If you truly want an organized, "track-based" racing experience, and tuning your cars to the slightest degree is a meaningful activity for you, then maybe pick up FM4 now (for cheap) and grab Horizon when the price drops. Or for the holidays. If you want a free-wheeling, happy-go-lucky romp through a gorgeous--and I mean GORGEOUS--rendition of Colorado, where you have a wide selection of highly customizable cars and can shoot the shit free-roaming with your pals, then maybe Horizon is your flavor. Your delicious, delicious flavor.

I'll say this, breaking any guise of objectivity: I have played every Forza since the original. And I haven't fallen in love with a racing game the way I have with Horizon in a long, long, long time.

#39 Posted by Slaughtahouse (7 posts) -

@HistoryInRust: Very good explanation. Maybe i'll grab it cheap in the future. I don't see a reason to spend 60$ on a game right now, but it definitely sounds like a great game. Huge fan of PGR.

#43 Posted by Spankmealotus (277 posts) -

@Slaughtahouse: There doesn't seem to be any way in this game to actually tune the cars and there isn't any simulation damage, only cosmetic. It's definitely more leaning toward arcade style racing without going all of the way there. I'm having a lot of fun with it but wish it had more of the Forza things we come to expect and love.
