Day One

#1 Posted by matt_wickstrom (156 posts) -

First off, who plans on buying the season pass tomorrow? I plan on buying MS Points tomorrow when I pick the game up to do just that.

Also, if anyone is interested in racing tomorrow afternoon, hit me up (GT is mjwickstrom1). Just let me know via message on here or XBL that you're from GiantBomb. I'll be on all day and would love to do some racing, car soccer, rivals mode, etc. to pass some time, especially since I doubt I'll be available for the first race night.

I was hoping Amazon would've shipped my copy Saturday so I could get it by tomorrow (I live waaaaay the hell in the sticks), but it just shipped this afternoon, so I doubt I'll be able to play until Wednesday. Damn you, waiting! Damn you's straight to hell!

@Sparky_Buzzsaw: If it makes you feel better, I don't think the Microsoft Store is going to ship my copy until release day (tomorrow) so I'll be lucky if I even get it by Thursday. D:

@slowbird: Bah, it's just because we're so skilled that they need everyone else to have a handicap, right? Right? Echo?

Got it an hour ago, between the system update, redeeming preorder/lce bonuses and installing the discs, I still haven't played it.

Tell me about it, the wait is killing me.

I've got the game, but I have to wait till I get off of work to play. Work cannot go slowly enough. At least I work at Audi :P

Looking good. Out of interest, is the limited edition 10 mucsle car pack thing the one that is included in the season pass?

#14 Posted by Daltonv (6 posts) -

@Garfield360UK: Ya, the muscle car pack comes "free" with the purchase of the season pass.

#15 Posted by gnarlycore (86 posts) -

Yea essentially we paid an extra $20 for nicer packaging, and some ugly BMW art cars, and a book I'll read once while I'm on the toilet.

Pluss 10 american muscle cars, 5 VIP cars, VIP status with the community (free cars etc) and top gear and Forza stickers! And I paid only 10$ more for this package so good deal. Now, if it only could get in my mailbox then I would be happy.

I thi k the main bummer is you still have to buy all the cars you paid real dollars to get.

#18 Posted by matt_wickstrom (156 posts) -

@gnarlycore: I couldn't agree more. Unfortunately, I've completely forgotten about most cars I've bought in the DLC of past Forza games, just because I never had the credits to buy all of them, or that I never realized you actually had to buy them in game.

#19 Posted by FritzDude (2273 posts) -

You mean in-game? That's no problem seeing that upgrading cars is now free when you hit level 4 with that car manufacturer. Also you can always do a test drive of that car in free play, which is essential what I did with all of the DLC cars from Forza 3. You only need to buy them in the career, which in my opinion is much better than getting everything for free like in Shift 2.

I´m visiting the FM4 forums daily, waiting until the game to come out on friday (like the rest of Europe). Good to hear everyone is having a good time so far though. So the Muscle Car Pack comes with both the LCE and the Season Pass!? That is a bit unfortunate! I was planning on getting the Season Pass and i pre-ordered the LCE.

#21 Posted by matt_wickstrom (156 posts) -

@Bouke: The American Muscle Car Pack is the first batch of DLC. When you buy the season pass it automatically unlocks the Muscle cars. Also, buying the game new gets you the Muscle cars as well. It's also available on the Marketplace for those who buy the game used, or don't get the season pass.

@Bouke Those who purchased the LCE got the Muscle car pack. Those who then go on to purchased the Season Pass will be given 250,000 credits at the end of the month.

You are still saving 5 USD even if you already have the LCE. The car packs are going to be 560 MS points.

Played all day yesterday. Great game!

@Grnd_Lb_Knt: @matt_wickstrom:
