Forza Motorsport 3

November 2, 2009 Leave a comment

My dad recently bought the new Forza Motorsport 3, a highly realistic racing game, generally consisting of high-end cars going very fast on famous tracks. Well, due to reasons not suited for discussion, my dad also bought an Xbox 360 Wireless Steering Wheel!
Anyway, shortly after purchase, I bought myself (in game) a Volkswagen Rabbit GTI (an F class car) and pimped it out all the way up to a B class. The thing goes like a bullet, but evidentially isn’t quite as stable as it would be at slower speeds.

The short clip above shows me flying round the final corner of the Nurburgring at around 140-150 MPH. Now, that speed is pretty big anyway, and considering I was doing it in THE most UN-aerodynamic car there is, something was bound to go wrong!
I ended up taking the corner slightly too sharply, hit the bumper track and completely destabilised the car. Excitement followed.

Gutta love it.


DiRT 2 Demo

This is a quick video of moi doing one of the trailblazers on the new DiRT 2 Demo available on Xbox Live available here.

Apologies about the end of the video where it sort of abruptly cuts out. Windows Movie Maker was playing up, and I couldn’t be bothered to open up anything more sophisticated! The basic jist is that I came first with a time of around 3 mins 15 seconds.
