Drivatar... Man that was painful to watch.

Race Night's not going away anytime soon, clearly.

Hopeful that the user AI system is massively improved from Forza 1. Having AI portray my playstyle hasn't excited me this much since ESPN NFL 2K5.

hope there's some new wheel for this

Man, I love that top down view of the Huayra. Very excited for this, I hope it's more of a jump than Forza 3 to 4 was.

They've been calling their AI system Drivatar since Forza 3.

Buggy Heat for the Dreamcast - 1999

http://implantgames.com/implantgames/1000

"Where TNN Motorsports Hardcore Heat breaks some new ground is with an innovative A.I. (artificial intelligence) feature. You can create your own A.I. driver. To train your A.I. you must run dozens of laps on each track in the Time Attack mode. The game will slowly learn your driving style and habits. You can then use this trained A.I. file to race for you in multi-player and championship modes. This is an interesting addition to the game, and offers some replay value as you want your A.I. to get good enough to decimate the competition."

Drivetard?

Posted by Owennerd

You know, Forza 4 already looks super beautiful. Honestly, this doesn't look that different. I only own an Xbox 360 for Forza, and I don't think I'm willing to drop $500 plus $60 for a new one.

Oh wow, nice memory. For me, it just reminded me of Gran Turismo's B-Spec mode.

I bet you that you will be able to make it a Drivetard by constantly crashing into shit whenever you have the chance. Then you can annoy the fuck out of people even when you're not playing. :-D

I love every view of the Huayra. Sexiest car on the road.

Edited by SolongWrex

I hope they'll put in more real-world circuits, because all the tracks they've designed themselves have been incredibly bad.

@rolento: Oh I don't know, I think I still like the Zonda more as my Pagani of choice.

Lets just make vowel to never say Drivatar again after this.

Oh, no argument. The Zonda R is one of the most amazing pieces of engineering around. And quite beautiful, too. But I dunno.. That Huayra.

I'm assuming you've seen this Zonda R ridiculous lap:

Edited by TopSteer

@rolento: Yep, that lap is beautiful. It's insane to think how far they can push the Huayra considering how fast it already is.

I'm also excited to see how Mclaren can shake things up with their P1.

Yeah, except all it takes is one person on the team having foresight to ruin this dream. You can probably rate the awfulness of the AI's so that they don't pop up anymore

I've got no chance if my opponents are "CLOUD-POWERED"

This and Titanfall are the only things that bring the heat, at least for me.

I feel like this trailer needed Kanye West's "Power." But I feel like that with most trailers.
