      I'm already Driver Level 50 on Forza Motorsport 3.

      Fucking ridiculous if you ask me :/ Too quick for my liking, even if I did do an enduro at my favourite circuit of all time.

      I went 28 laps in my tuned-up Lexus IS-F before I had to pull in for pits in the Suzuka 169km event XD God I love the fuel economy in this game, so much more realistic. And the tires didn't wear out much either which is awesome :3 Anyways, now that I've gotten one good part of the achievements done, I shall write a quick and half-arsed review.

      Forza Motorsport 3 is a vast improvement over the previous instalment, even with the more stable content. Sure, there are still a fair amount of flaws with car modelling *cough*McLaren F1*cough* but for the most part, the cars look good. The tracks look spectacular, especially the revamped and restored Fujimi Kaido (god that waterfall is beautiful). The 'Ring looks better with more trees, but I'm sorely disappointed with the omission of one particular underrated track that is basically a deity in the books of Australian motorsport. But, there's always DLC for Bathurst, so hopefully we'll see it some time next year.

      Speaking of Australia, the V8 Supercars is a welcome addition to the flock of over 400 cars in the game, and they're hella fun to drive :D They sound great, they handle well, and in general make for very fun rides. The ability to paint race cars is a bonus, and I'm sure eager people will be recreating liveries from past cars that can be legally classified as eye-candy. The large assortment of race cars makes for a definite thumbs-up, and I'm real impressed with the noticeable difference between the different fields of regulations (i.e. GT3, GT2, GT1, GT500, DTM, LMP, etc.). The variety of tracks thus far is also awesome, and I'm finding fun in the current swathe of these configurations, especially when I go to catch air in a rally car! Of course, I haven't had the chance to check out the two extra sets of tracks that are available for free download, but I'm sure that'll change soon enough.

      Onto the career mode, and I've found the season play to be quite some fun, albeit lengthy at times, where you get bored having to do an event involving putt-putt cars then all of a sudden being dumped into a monster of a car doing a much longer race. Still, it's all worth the fun as the events in between the championship rounds do get better. One of the big disappointments for me is how quickly I was able to reach driver level 50. I found that it took a bit too quick for me to get up there, however I'm not complaining a great deal about the reward cars, because a few of them are pretty decent to drive with. Obviously the ability to go off on a tangent and do your own thing in the Event List is a plus, especially if you're looking for the enduros, since I'm yet to see one pop up in Season Play.

      One of the biggest things to come to FM3 is the cockpit view, and I absolutely love being able to read off the gauges when I'm driving a car, so I don't have the HUD speedo being obnoxious in the lower right. Of course, the in-car view does fall flat on its ass at times with positioning, but at least you can look around inside it to check your mirrors (of course, the field of view can be fixed when dealing with in-car views... just need to fiddle with the multi-screen settings ;D). Some cars do seem a little disappointing with the display of gauges, or lack thereof. I'm not sure if the developers didn't get all the info down right, or what the story is (I'm sure the Holden V8 Supercar drivers do have a display to look at when they're driving the car).

      A pretty big negative is the seemingly child-like achievements that have been put up on offer. I know, achievements for a racking game are hard to come up with, but bloody hell, most of these achievements are childs play.

      Overall, I'm really happy with the way that Forza 3 has come out. I'm sure the next instalment (if there is one) will be better than ever, and hopefully there's some content that'll really hit home for me. The next thing for me is to get a bloody racing wheel for this thing, so I can really experience the thrill of racing :D

      I can't really remember how my karma got so damn high. :P


      Anyways, did I tell anyone on here that I got a Dell Studio 1555 back in May? :D That was for my 18th birthday.

      That's right, I'm 18. 100% legal. (At least here Down Under lol) I'm not drinking much though, nor smoking, so don't worry, I'm keeping healthy :D


      Hurr.. exams start on Wednesday... at least they're spread out a fair bit, so that's good <3

    • Holy shit what?

      SubWoofaCS

      Man..... I haven't been here in forever.

      I'm not sure whether my activity will actually pick up here or something like that, but it might soon enough.


      So... what's happened in my end of the woods? Well, I've graduated from high school and I have finals from next week. Going to college next year to start in interactive digital media, hoping that all goes well.

      Forza Motorsport 3 comes out next week, really hyped about that game even if the developers haven't been entirely truthful about the game and its features. But hey, all developers do that, so it's cool. Still looks promising, and I'll need to get the Day 1 DLC for it cause Benchmark Ring looks awesome even if it's just a bunch of speedways lol. I'm in it for the hangar and stuff.

      Oh yeah, and I have the katana in Halo 3 now, even though I don't play online :D I have all of the offline achievements for it.

      Anyways, not much else for me to say at the moment, hope everyone else is going well :3

      Christmas is so damn close... I would tell y'all what I want for Xmas, but my parents stole my wishlist thinger, so I can't really say what I want.... (my memory likes to play retard with me sometimes)

      Anyways, so, what's been happening to the Sub? Well, I've finished Halo 3 on Heroic, bar three levels on Legendary, and got all the skulls with my friend since he's got a 360 now.

      Oh, I got my end of year report a couple of weeks back, so I'll show you all what I got:

      Someone tell me what I missed!

    • Completely inactive D:

      11 years ago

      SubWoofaCS

      Yeah, I realise I'm not on here as much as I usually am.


      Looks like the artistic side of me is starting to nail me. I've gone to the point of contemplating leaving this site for good, but I haven't yet.

      If you want to talk to me on MSN, then add me at horsley.tfr@hotmail.com because I'll be on there more often than I am on this site. Really, I prefer talking to people in live action rather than through web pages.

      Other than that, I hope everyone is still doing well.

    • Exams may fail, but.....

      11 years ago

      SubWoofaCS

      I still own at them.

      Alright, here's the ranks I got: ( = means equal)
      English: = 6th
      Maths: 4th
      Commerce: 12th in exam, 8th overall smiley0.gif
      IST: 3rd

      Science, History/Geography, and PD/H/PE I still haven't got the ranks for yet. Still got my Music final to do. I've got to do a recording in the next day or so, but won't be submitting till next Friday (when my Music final is on) so hopefully my band members do well with the instruments because I'm singing.

      Not much else happening on my front. Will update again soon smiley8.gif

    • oh wewt....... + rant

      11 years ago

      SubWoofaCS

      Well, things are going rather well at the moment. Found that I should rank in the top 10 in Maths, Info. & Software Tech, and Commerce bigsmile.png (not sure on History or Geography though...)

      Anyways, I've got to do recording next week, but it doesn't help when the other members in the group are being five-year-old-spoilt-little-shits and then resulting in one of the two not turning up to school.....

      Putting that aside, but remaining on the same subject of school, I want to rant on something:

      The state government department that runs all public schools in the state have changed their policy on internet usage i.e. the website filter. Previously, it was based on blacklist policy, but now it's whitelist policy, which I find is rather shit considering half the sites we go to designated for certain tasks at school are now blocked, which impedes our learning.

      What I find disturbing the most is the part where we try to use websites for education, yet we go and find them blocked. Proof? In Commerce, we were looking for several car deals on the internet for our teacher since her car is 16 years old ir something, and she wanted a new one. So, as you can guess, majority of the sites we checked out were blocked, which really pissed us off. And what annoyed me even more was that the teachers' account had access to site we couldn't access.

      So, I asked myself this: is there really any point in students being able to learn if they can't visit sites while teachers can? And if students had the same filter level as teachers, wouldn't they just be educated on the risks of the internet?

      Quite frankly, I'm lucky to have a good internet. Sure, it's slow compared to most other developed nations, but still, having the freedom to browse practically anything in the comfort of my own home is something that I (probably shouldn't) take for granted. But then I think of all those people that I know who don't have the internet, let alone people who don't have a computer at all.... so I ask myself this: how will they know how to handle the internet and know how to use it at the best of its ability when all they have is access to a system run by obnoxious bureaucrats?

      Really, we go to school each weekday to learn, I'm sure it wouldn't hurt if we were educated on knowing what's good and what's bad when it comes to the internet. I thought they would've thought about it a long time ago.



      If you read all that, then I shall deem you fo' shizzle :3

      Well, my Music assessment isn't until god-knows-when, so I didn't do the exam yesterday... but I did do the others.

      I was really tempted to, but then I remembered that I want a desktop computer as my next compy. Much cheaper for better performance, since I already have a laptop... but yeah, either way, money's tight, so maybe I'll end up getting nothing. =S

      Nice, I can't wait.

      And I do love me some House MD. This latest season has been really great.

    • Caboose00

      9 years ago

      Yeah, the instant I can, i'm gonna enter the code that came with my Vista 64bit DVD for the free Windows 7 upgrade.

      Should be good times ahead - once I finally get the computer working, that is.

    • Caboose00

      9 years ago

      Yeah, but it should be alright. If I devote just that 18GBs to just Vista/Windows 7, and just use my external for most other stuff, that should last me quite some time.

      Actually, that's pretty much what i've been doing anyway for the past couple of years, and i've yet to have a REAL need for more hard drive space. It's just that the extra 80 gigs would have been nice to have. Oh well, maybe another time!

    • Caboose00

      9 years ago

      Unfortunately, the only hard drive I have is also IDE. I got it with my old computer, so it's about 6-7 years old.

    • Schraver Party Hard

      9 years ago

      i cant handle racing sims. theyre boring as all fuck to me.
      although i LOVE Burnout 3 on the other hand. mostly because the soundtrack is probably the best soundtrack iv EVER herd in a game.

      but yea if i wanted to take an uneventful boring left turn with no explosions or crashes id just get in my car and drive i guess is how i feel about it.

      cudos to those who do like the genera though, more power to them and i hope it turns out to be a great game. smiley9.gif
