After the first hour of not knowing what in the hell I was doing and getting trampled to death by mammoths I think I finally have the hang of it. It's wicked addicting. 




Really? Thought the first hour would have been taken up with all the updates that were required.

Fun game. Need to start playing it again.

The XBox isn't hooked up to the Internet, I can just say no to the updates.

Ahh, okay, enjoy the utterly broken and incomplete quest borking up your queue then.

The PX here isn't even putting PS4s on the shelves; they are selling out too quick.  On the other hand, there have been 10 XB1s sitting on the shelf for a week now.

Yeah, I'll just wait for the price break myself. I want to see who wins out with my friends.

I already said I got a PS4. Dilemma over.

Ugh, tired of arguing with the spam filter.

Bought an XB1 yesterday for Forza 5. Love the system, Forza 5 was a huge letdown.

It's a list man. For starters, Forza 4 had 400 cars and 26 tracks at launch-F5 has 200 cars and 14 tracks. They've decided to really start pushing tokens in the form of microtransactions and in order to so they've made earning credits a much slower process. On top of that they've taken away the ability to sell your cars to the computer and they've eliminated the gifting system. They've also cut the test drive function and free play is essentially gimped.

I have a nasty feeling they're gonna be adding the extra cars and tracks from Forza 4 as paid DLC...I've already seen a couple on my car buying screen.

The game itself is still fantastic, and the upside to the slower economy is that it forces you to spend more time in the C class events which, to me anyway, are the most fun. I get way more of a thrill out of building up an VW Rabbit or Honda S2000 from D to C than I do from spending a million credits on a pre-made S Class racer.

The trigger feedback effects are also pretty nifty, but they've still added nothing in the way of night racing or weather effects so you'll be seeing the same 14 tracks at the same time of day over the course of your career. I'm honestly not sure why they cut the track count down so low if they weren't going to add variety to the system.

The new Drivatar AI is decent but it seems like half the drivers on any given track are bumbling idiots with one lone car seemingly an impossible lead to catch up to. I thought Forza 4 was a bit too easy but I think Forza 5 pushes it into the wrong direction. I guess they realized this as well because now 1-3 place is Gold so you don't have to catch up to Speed Racer to win the race.

I noticed the lack of cars on F4 too.  a few months in to F4 I was wondering why it was asking me to pay for cars that came with F3.  It's all one big racket I tell ya.

The lack of cars I'm pretty okay with, I do hope it's just a launch thing, though, and not a trend that leaves us with 50 cars in Forza 6.

T10 is hawking season passes like CoD or Borderlands now so I may bite my consumer pride and plop down the 50 bucks for that. I pretty much only bought the console for Forza and Titanfall so I might as well get my time out of it :P

Anyone on PS4 have some game suggestions? Quickly grew bored of Ghosts. Not a big Battlefield/racing games.

Also extremely disappointed that The Division isn't slated to come out until some time in 2015.

I enjoy AC: Black Flag.  If you have PS Plus, Outlast is free this month.  I've heard that is pretty spooky.

Haven't played it in ages.

I did see a Lego Minecraft set the other day. Thought that was quite hilarious.

im jumping into this really late I know. I got a PS4, the only reason. my friends did it. ill miss the 3 A.M. Forza drag racing screaming matches with my buddies. I really do enjoy battlefield 4, ghosts is horrible and NFS: rivals is just too sci fi of a racing game for me. AC4: black flag was amazing. especially after the disappointment that was AC3.
