Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    In Forza 2 I play without the driving or brake line on

    I keep most of the other stuff on though

    because man

    I am bad enough at driving as it is

    I keep the brake line on until I get comfortable with the course. I don't need no line to show me when to put the pedal to the floor though.

    I might try to drive without it on Forza 3 for a few races and see how that goes. Usually until I get a decent car I'm just so focused on getting my junker to squeeze past everybody that I'm oblivious to the corners unless I see that yellow or red line start to show up.

    uugh

    assists in a racing sim

    you should be ashamed

    yes

    how dare these new people try a new game type where they may need help at first

    They should suffer unmercifully until they quit in frustration.

    I felt so accomplished when I actually won a race

    I was like wooooo!

    It's crushing when I do really well, though, and then fuck up in the last second of the last lap and everyone races past me and fuck I'm eighth god damn it

    I've only played 3 races so far but this is exactly why I love the new rewind feature.

    This rewind feature sounds a bit gay. It's not a racing sim without massive frustration and racing a track 1000 times until you know it like your own face.

    Then don't use it? Hell, I am a beginner at this racing sim scene and I only use it when I really screw up a turn. if it's bad but I pull out of it I just suck it up. It can be used just like an assist for the beginning learning the ropes then gradually turned off/just not used when they get better.

    I had brake assist on for awhile until i realized it wasn't really assisting as much as just doing it for me. I was able to just lay a book on the gas pedal (No, not literally) and be able take all the turns easy enough.

    I learnt in GT that traction control only slows me down

    quite literally

    TCS senses wheel slip and puts the brakes on that wheel to provide the friction that was missing

    so I turned it off and now I am the coolest cool guy

    I try to be as sim as I can be without shifting. I can't afford a wheel, and I can't get into it otherwise.

    Sometimes I only do limited damage though, because bumping dudes out of your way can be pretty fun. And they usually start it!

    Yeah in the demo I was kinda excited for the damage model and trying to keep the car in tip top shape but then I started getting paranoid.

    So now I just try to do the pit maneuver if they start shit.

    If I ever get passed by getting hit, that son of a bitch is going to get drifted into at the next corner. The best part is, I usually barely lose any speed.

    Man, why did Turn 10 ditch the qualifying before each race? Every car on the grid is placed in order of speed...expect the players which is placed last. Fuck that noise. It's making the 2/3 lap early races almost impossible to do without resorting to demolition derby.

    It just reeks of being a video game.

    Yeah, that's pretty balls at the start. But I just turned down the difficulty to medium and blasted through it. In the longer races I really don't mind though. Passin' dudes is my favourite part.

    It was the worst on that five-door challenge track where you only had 1.5 miles total to go from 8th to 1st, and 1/4 of the track was just one big turn so you couldn't really overtake heavily on that section.

    Also, racing with a wheel is hard but so awesome. Doing that new mountain course with a Lancer Evo while using it was awesome as hell.

    Hideo Kojima? Because that is the best track I've ever raced on in any racing game ever.

    It's so good.

    I also really enjoy taking the old cars in the game for a spin around the biggest iteration of that island map, just doing hot laps over and over.

    I'm so terrible with these new track names still. I know Le Mans though! And that's a really nice track, too!

    I fully understand that it really isn't for me, like I just don't want to play a racing sim, I want to play a racing game.

    But a guy at work was like "Oh man, it's so good," and I mentioned that I really didn't foresee a day when a racing game got me to play it instead of Burnout Paradise, which I totally love. So he told me to download the demo. And I was riiiiiiiiight.

    If people don't like sim racers they shouldn't be turned away by Forza 3 just because of its legacy.

    It has a feature where the game applies the brakes for you.

    but it only does this in GMs with on*star
