    72% of download complete, - I'm getting hysterical. ;-)

    A small step to human kind, but a huge leap to us xbots. Like from 2 to 3.

    EDIT

    It's pretty and a steering wheel seems to work. Demo is a bit short, but I'll have fun testing a bit around.

    There was a rear view mirror added to the hood view, so I'm happy. :)

    Game Traders has it on sale for $77 if you preorder it this month. There is also a Limited edition available but that will sell for $119.

    they killed it

    A WHAT BUTTON??? REWIND!!! What the hell is a rewind button doing in this game!?!?! "Made a mistake? Just press the rewind button (cheat) to any point in the race and continue from there". I think they copied this idea from another game I demoed a few months ago. Can't remember the name of that one though. Not impressed. I thought this was going to be a serious racing game. Sim... HA! Definitely will wait for a wheel bundle now. No hurry to get it anymore. My son will probably want it asap. He didn't like the lack of bodykit modification in NFS:SHIFT.

    I believe Grid and Dirt 2 use a similar system yet i was under the impression that you did not need to use the option if you did not want to.

    Using rewind makes your laps uncertified, and times go behind certified times.

    I have no problem when a game provides accessibily options to more players.

    I think I need some rest.

    Sorry bud. Just didn't think it was a serious option to include. It's a gimmick that Forza just doesn't need. They're brilliant games.

    edit: Found out today that the Fanatec wheel bundle will be available to order online. Not sure when though.. maybe late October. I think how it works is that when you order from them (they're in Germany), the product is actually distributed from Sydney.

    From what i read that 15 second rewind button is only for those playing on easy mode. Even then you can only use it a few times. Serious mode dont have that option.


    I was looking at that steering wheel at Fanatec and noticed they are offering it for sale to the Vatican ! I suppose the Pope likes his races against the Bishops. :)

    The game is not that far away now and you will be happy to know that you will be getting cars galore. They could not fit all the cars on the main game disk ... so welcome to disk 2 :D
