@Krzzystuff Forza Horizon - Like crack but with no comedown! Buy now!!

@LtSarge I've had a good go on it now, every track. I think I'm ready to turn it off. That skittles thing sounds cool actually. But yeah, maybe I'll get on Motorsport 8 if I get a chance to!

Took some more screenshots but my Xbox app won't update to show them so I'll try and post them later.

I didn't realise hot shot racing was leaving game pass today n all so I might have a quick go on that

I beat that Hot Shot Racing in the end. (My definition of beat in this game is win every GP on normal difficulty and see every characters ending). I really liked it. It's like a combination of Ridge Racer, Virtua Racer and a take-your-pick kart racer. You get boost by drifting and tailgating in people's slipstreams. It's cool. There's a lot to unlock and play if you choose to take it further than I did. But if anyone is interested in having a go then I'd say you could beat all the GPs and do a few extra GPs to see all of the character endings inside of 2 hours. So enough time to do it before it leaves game pass basically!

@ralphdibny I am so hyped as well. I am trying to finish 3 and then I still have 4 to play as well. I don't have it pre-installed yet so that way I won't be tempted to play it just yet.

@ralphdibny I will probably play 4 before 5 mainly because I have done that before with a series. I find that once I play a newer installment in a series it's hard to go back to an older game in a series mainly due to improvements that are made with each new installment.

I played the intro and also the first showcase event in Horizon 5. Beautiful game but I am feeling the lack of Series enhancements by playing on the One X. It will have a jarring load time between gameplay and cut scenes in the intro that I would assume is non existent on Series X! It's only jarring because of the flow of the sequence though. I'm more or less fine with the load times otherwise.

Got back into FH3 the other night mainly due to all the hype of 5 being released. I just about finished all the races in Byron Bay and just leveled up Yarra Valley to level 3. Still having alot of fun with this game.

6-8 hours into Forza Horizon 5, and I've been noticing that race dificulty is "highly skilled" drivatars only. What's the deal?? You can't bump down the difficulty. I don't want to complain that it's too hard, but.... yeah. I normally play on above average and do ok, there's a good bit of challenge, but I'm struggling to find races that aren't "highly skilled" only.

@WoomyNNYes Sounds like you're playing seasonal/challenge events. Those have set difficulty that can't be changed. All regular campaign events can be set to your difficulty of choice.

@Shigurui That's very helpful info since I'm new to Horizon 5. Thank you! I was worried there was of lot of the Highly-Skilled-only races. Man that 2020 Toyota Supra sucks (for that race). It has the grip of stock, eco Prius tires on it - maybe they're intended for drifting?

@WoomyNNYes You're welcome. If you open the map and press the right bumper, you can filter out those events and just have the regular campaign event icons appear on the map.

Oof. Lost two days of progress. I finally earned more than a million dollars, had $1,220,000, and now we're back to $330,00. Jeeze. what a downer.

@WoomyNNYes strange seeing the Supra comment. You can tinker with the setup. My silver supra 2020 is almost maxed out, just need the 25xp unlock thingy. It's my favourite car so far. Although I am a Toyota nerd and want the 2022 2 litre (the 3 will be too heavy on the gas and not good for driving to work) as my next real car after my Corolla GR Sport 2 litre. Love the Supra.

So far, I've had a great time using the 1973 Porsche, from the barn find. The way it handles with the engine in the back, has made it more solid in turns than other cars (for me, anyway), or I've really taken to how it performs compared to other cars with front engine. I put the body kit on it, and better tire compound and have had a great time with it in B class (I think it was B class with body kit and better rubber).

Has anyone tried the Rimac? haha. Jeeeze. It's electric, and sickeningly fast, like melt-your-face acceleration, and surprisingly stable. Stock, it gets to 265mph quicker than anything I've experienced in Horizon, and it sounds like a jet plane, especially when it sails through the air off a large hill. It's a bit of a freak, and helped me get an XP board on top of that shed in the speed camera zone just West or Southwest of the main Horizon Festival, at the southern end of the air strip. There's a bridge/long straight that helps aim you over a hill to land on the shed/XP board. Even with that good lead-up, there was a lot of trial and error/rewinds trying to get that board.

So I was playing a bit of Forza Horizon 3, just finishing up maxing out the last festival so now I don't get any more fans when a thought came to me. I was wondering how do you all play the Horizon games? Do you play until you finish the story do you play till you max out all your festival sites or do you play until you finish everything?

@Tasuki With Forza Horizon 3 and 5, I just played through the story mode and maxed out all festival sites basically. There's just so much content that I can't be bothered doing everything. It starts becoming a chore after you've finished the story, i.e. you need to check off every icon on the map.

@Tasuki @LtSarge For me I just play until I get bored or a new game comes along that takes my interest more. I also like to get as many acheivements out of the games as I can so I might spend a bit longer with it if the requirements are a bit more difficult than my gaming prowess allows.
