  1. Hey! No no! You two don't be going setting better times now, you had your chances 5 years ago
  2. Once again I disgrace myself as a supposed Forza fan, only just getting round to the Horizon Rally pack now I think if I remember right it came out the same week as a Trials Evo DLC pack and that got priority for my limited budget back then. In a way it's good going into it now as I've pretty much forgot the original roads that the rally stages are built on, so it's a nice new experience. No X 4k prettiness here, but it still looks pretty damn nice on my S though, good enough for me. And new/old rivals to race like @spatular http://xboxdvr.com/gamer/meatball46/video/45469492

    I'd be up for some tournament action, but shift work on varied days means I can't commit to a regular day/time to play. Played my final round for that international tournament earlier. I definitely peaked too early in the qualifier @marsh

    Aye, rather strong winds out there. I had to do some major correction with my aiming to account for the ball getting blown about and seemed to mostly get it pretty bang on. I just remembered to check where I qualified with that score, 218th out of 48k qualifiers, with even par apparently being the requirement to get through to the final. 22 hrs left to post a score for that, so I'll have a go on that some time tomorrow. Fingers crossed for a repeat of my first round!

    Cheers for the heads up @marsh just had a crack at it now. I'd like to say it was all down to skill, but there was probably more than my share of lucky bounces in there. -22

    Forza Horizon 3

    Nah, I usually play without fiddling about with all the setup and upgrades stuff myself and I manage ok. I think it does try to match the AI car’s PI rating to match your own car, so you shouldn’t get outgunned by much faster AI. Snow/off-road dirt tyres I think are worth upgrading if you’re doing races on those surfaces rather than road, but other than that I personally don’t bother getting in depth with it to any detail, just maybe go with the quick upgrade option to max a car out in its class if I want to go attacking the more higher places of the Rivals leaderboards. Yes, Boozy is still tearing up his rear tyres frequently. In one race of our recent FM7 championship series I was leading and I think he’d possibly had some incidents and so was running last when I came around to lap him and I was amused to find when I spotted him up ahead it looked like he’d given up on the serious racing and was just having fun blasting round everywhere sideways

    As mentioned there’s similar elements with the tuning options and stuff, but with more ‘relaxed’ handling characteristics. I enjoy the Motorsport series a hell of a lot, but where that’s more from the aspect of trying to find the optimum line through corners whilst keeping the car in line and under control (unless your name is Boozy McSideways Clown) in Horizon you’ll be sliding drifting around dirt tracks, bouncing across fields, smashing through fences, splashing through rivers, getting huge air jumping off ramps and cliffs, racing your monster truck against a bunch of speedboats, hunting around the map for hours for trying to locate that last bastard bit of undiscovered road, speeding round upside down in massive loop-the-loops (Hot Wheels DLC), etc etc. Forza Horizon is much FUN!

    Forza Horizon 3

    After a couple of months away from it I’ve been dipping my toes back into the FH3 waters the last couple of days, with my now updated telly letting me get the full HD goodness and with HDR lighting its looking lovely and nice to be back in. Even a ugly pile of crap Bentley Bentayga can be fun in FH3 http://xboxdvr.com/gamer/meatball46/video/41373671 So close!

    I tended to go for the view with no car visible previously, but around FM5 I'm sure they lowered it down from the bonnet level it used to be to more of a bumper cam height now and very low to the ground so can restrict your view ahead severely if you're in a bunch of cars etc. So bonnet cam view is my most used now. But like there was one of the muscle cars with a big supercharger or something poking up through the bonnet blocking a large chunk of the view, and do find the reflections on the bonnets and stuff a bit off putting at times so switch back to bumper cam occasionally. Couple of nice cars in the new Forzathon there.

    18 under for me after scraping through with 11 under in the quali round. I was happy with my 18 under, 25 is And it took me a while, but I just dropped in my first hole-in-one... Then just 3 holes later...

    I don't hate it, but yeah it wouldn't be my first choice for a enjoyable driving experience for sure. Anyways, after you besmirched my good name by publicly posting dodgy dirty laps you will now find the leaderboard updated... In its defence it can't be that bad though, quick enough to allow me to get up in the top 300 of the world. With room for improvement. And @Boozy The Clown you've posted a few times saying about a nice car/track combo you've been enjoying. Isn't it about time you set up one of those as one of your world famous time trial challenges?

    Challenge accepted! Guessing all the times but yours are classed as dirty because they were set during a race, so had some slip streaming etc involved to void them.
