late reply here too but loving the car club! I gotta say I'm having a lot of fun with this game, Forza plus the open world is full of win.

I'll have to send a join request to the car club... I've only been playing single player and am halfway through the pink wristband. I'm really enjoying it. Kind of wishing I would have also picked this up for $15 in addition to the NFS:MW. I like both games, and had came across this at the library so I figured it was a no-brainer for a 3 week rental at no cost. Then I'll get back to Most Wanted.

It's crazy because I had tried the demo for this and hated it. The controls and handling seemed a lot more arcade-like.

You'll know my cars in the club... All are painted the same way and have my initials on them lol.

I'm pretty sure the controls are exactly the same... The real issue with the demo is the first race. Its not suppose to be winnable (though it is) and the AI rubber bands really bad.

Pretty sure I got you added to the club yesterday... (I was online goofy of on one of the monthly rival events and got myself rated in the mid 200s overall) If not I'll do so today.

In other news...

That sounds awesome but I am determined to wait and see if there is a sale of some sort on the season pass as well. I just can't convince myself to pay 4000 msp for it.

OMG! that trailer looks sick!

does this mean the free roam world is bigger now with the addition (assuming you get the addition)?

1600 points. that would push me over the 2000 point mark for the Xbox Rewards December thing... then again, I'm not even close to finishing the game. So the sane part of me says to hold off because by the time I finish, it'll probably be on sale.

I believe I read somewhere that the rally addition will be a separate part of the game and not included in the free roam portion of the single player. There will be a menu option to access the new content on the main menu.

aww. that's a major bummer. i guess it's another factor to consider.

I think they should've done it like Burnout Paradise (a game I despise) where you could add Big Surf Island to your world.

I still think it will be a great addition but I know what you mean, it would have been cool to add the new races to the current map. I tried looking for where I read that information from but couldn't find the article. I just hope they put the season pass on sale at some point so I can play the expansion and the new cars.

Hi, I finally played Forza Horizon today for the first time. I heard there was a car club from a friend on here. I would love to join. My GT is the same: TrinityQiTrance. :)

Got ya added. :)

Along with the other two people... I did not look at the club totals but I'm simply amazed at how big the club is... I thought it would max out around 20 or so... and we have at least 60! :D

Speaking of clubs... I started a new CAG club for Forza 4 the day since the CAGs who started it don't maintain it anymore. (Its called CAG3. Please fill free to join it.)

Can't stop playing mp just to see which car I unlock next. I now have an extra mercedes code for BB pre-order for trade. I'd prefer the amestop ferrari, but am open to other trades. LMK.

Just about finished up with the SP. I'm about halfway through the Purple Wristband and an overall ranking of 11 I think. Oddly enough one of my favorite cars so far for racking up points is the 2006 Audi. That car fully tuned is a monster, largely in part to being AWD and being very easy to drift.

Check your file depot for gifts from Turn 10. A RUF Yellowbird for non-VIPs and a unicorn fiesta as well as the RUF for VIP. FM4 also got a pair of gift cars. All with special liveries.

Thats awesome, I'll have to get online and check both games.

Popped in my copy that I got yesterday and am enjoying myself so far. Hopefully this time I actually try to make liveries but we shall see if time permits.

Regardless, sent a request to join the cag car club to JDawg. Not sure if I have to do anything else on my end regarding that or not.

I'm not a club leader, so I don't know if I can invite members, but I'll look tonight.

Next car pack is out on January 1St. Free car is a 95 mustang. Season pass car is Zonda cirque.

Loving the game! Played some online with my brother last night. I like that you can "rent" cars to use, because I only have 3 total so far haha.

I just got into playing it today after playing a few minutes when it came from the $15 MS Store sale last month.

Anyway, the Javelin AMX is insane for burnouts. I put maybe 10k credit into tuning it up (new transmission and the weight reduction) and I just found a little parking lot and I can get the ultimate burnout in a few seconds. I only have to do a quick tap for a turn and it does at least a 180.

I did go back to the car club in the central hub and tried sending a request in that way although it said "you already have a request pending". Hard to say.

Having never played a Forza game before, knowing this one is quite different eyed me to get it for cheap during the holidays from the Microsoft store. Having said that...I'm REALLY enjoying this so far. It's like Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, except...what it should've been.

I like being able to tailor the game to me so I find it enjoyable. It gives it a very nice, chill atmosphere to the whole premise. Something I sorely miss out of my racing games, which have just been 'we're going to push you as hard as humanly possible in order to beat it' as of late.

I can't find any messages from you. Try Inmate of Arkham as he's the club leader.

Really debating getting the season pass. Have a $25 giftcard coming so that would cover half. Then I have a $10 coupon...so $15 for the season pass seems like a no brainer, but idk. haha So indecisive.
