As stated earlier by other users, there's already a thread with the same basic premise that has been around for an unsettling amount of time. There's no need for a second thread on this matter.
PsEG's forum posts
Going to close this down, since the staff don't solicit suggestions for Endurance Runs, and I swear I've heard them say in the distant past that constant suggestions from users only deters them from starting new ERs.
The staff will choose a game, and it'll probably be a title they wanted to play but never had a reason or excuse to jump into. We can't decide what fits that criteria. (Sorry.)
So I went through and looked at individual car prices in the launch pack, just for the heck of it. Here they are:
- MINI John Cooper Works - 160 points
- Alfa Romeo Giulietti - 160 points
- Honda CR-Z EX - 160 points
- Subaru WRX STI - 160 points
- BMW 1 Series M Coupe - 160 points
- '65 Ford Mustang GT Coupe - 160 points
- '97 Lexus SC300 - 160 points
- Tesla Roadster Sport - 160 points
- RUF RGT-8 - 240 points
- Koenigsegg Agera - 240 points
Not exactly surprising. At least all of the store exclusives are $2, but I'm going to wait and hope this pack becomes a part of a future Deal of the Week.
@Sparky_Buzzsaw: That's hilarious. While my parents had a few weird cars when I was very young, the first one I have any memory of was our Dodge Shelby Charger. Such an utterly peppy little rocket that I wish would make it into Forza.
Heads-up, folks: The once-exclusive pre-order bonuses are going to be available later today in a purchasable car pack. That includes the store pre-order bonuses and the cars available only in the first production run.
- 2011 MINI John Cooper Works Clubman (Walmart's exclusive)
- 2011 Alfa Romeo Giulietti Quadrifoglio Verde Fettuccine Alfredo (GameStop's exclusive)
- 2011 Honda CR-Z EX (Microsoft Store's exclusive)
- 2011 Subaru WRX STI (Amazon's exclusive)
- 2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe (Best Buy's exclusive)
- 1965 Ford Mustang GT Coupe (first run)
- 1997 Lexus SC300 (first run)
- 2011 Tesla Roadster Sport (first run)
- 2011 RUF RGT-8 (first run)
- 2011 Koenigseggseggseggsegg Agera (first runununununun)
The pack's 560 points/$7, just like the other car packs, but it's NOT a part of the Season Pass. People who picked up Forza 4 well after its release may have reasonable incentive to purchase this pack, but those of us who bought early and already have 5-7 of these cars should probably consider whether picking up the remaining cars is worth the money. Remember, cars can be purchased individually at a far heftier price of 160 to 240 points each.
@Sparky_Buzzsaw: That's awesome to hear! Is this the Bullrun reality competition, or just coverage of the point-to-point rally?
Looks like Patrick's article was ejected into space!
Nobody messes with the might of Kid & Play.
I hate to be the buzzkill here, but the forum rules state no material of an overtly sexual nature. A giraffe receiving fellatio from a woman falls under that category, even if it's just a drawing. Sorry.
...plus, we've had plenty of discussion regarding the odd shape of this number in the Resident Evil 6 trailer over the last day. Artwork aside, we don't really need another thread about it.
Not exactly the Super Bowl I was expecting to see, but given the four possible teams at the start of the day, this was the outcome I was hoping for. Seeing both Harbaughs miss the Super Bowl pleases me in the most petty of ways.
That said, interesting rematch, and while I don't really mind either team winning, I'd prefer to see the Patriots take this one.
...and I'm going to step in here and stem this conversation off, now that it's run its course.
Over the years, there have been countless threads from users suggesting what they think the next Endurance Run should be. The staff pay little to no attention to these threads, and given their responses about this sort of jazz, it would seem that any requests for specific games only diminish their desire to start new Endurance Runs at all. As other users have stated, the staff chooses games for ERs based on titles they otherwise would not take the time to play. Maybe it's a cult classic, maybe it's a classic, maybe it's just weird, but it's never our call or place to suggest the next title.
Since this has run the typical gamut of ER suggestion threads, I'm going to lock this down. Otherwise, we're going to fall into an endless, repetitive cycle of insults, retorts, and declarations that [insert game here] is a terrible/great/adequate idea for an ER.
