It's very common that not a lot happens before E3 - although Voodoo Vince just came out aside from them mentioning Game Pass is also in the works (available to Xbox Insider Members atm). Microsoft wants to get ahead of leaks, considering that's always the biggest weakness that Microsoft has to worry about, and get people buzzing about their mid-gen refresh console so not surprising they're not going to show games running on it. Hell, the beginning of this gen cycle nobody knew what the damn console from Sony & Microsoft would look like as that was a tight lipped secret. Eh, everybody's waiting for E3, that's where they're planning to have the big whabam presentation.

 

"I don't see MS doing anything new and innovative to separate themselves from its competitors"

Yeah, they've built onto the chip itself to optimize graphical horsepower, processor and memory usage and then will optimize first party games with software optimization as well - all with a goal of reaching 4K 60 fps (which has been done with a simple Forza 6 port). You get 4, not 2, free games with GwG. You can also play your old Xbox 360 games on your newer Xbox One console via Backwards Compatibility free. With Game Pass you'll be able to not stream, but download any game that's in that particular collection for a subscription service ...but that's nothing new.

#13696526 Forza Horizon 3 - Gen. Discussion Available on Xbox One & Win 10

Posted by Spybreak9 on 22 April 2017 - 12:50 AM

This weekend's Frozathon is on, up for grabs a Porsche 959, fairly easy to get too (complete a championship).

 

PSA: for the Lumberjack challenge, you need to go to the Dry Reservoir and knock over the white tree stumps, pretty easy to do if you've got the hog.

 

I mopped up all 4 challenges in about 45 minutes, the 3 Star Drift Challenge being the hardest but if you have Blizzard Mountain, just go there and use the snow and ice to your advantage.

Got them all but the 3 - 3 star drifts.  Not sure I will get that one.  There is only one spot I have been able to hit 3 stars in drifting.  It is the 15K zone on the right side of the Blizzard Mountain map.  I actually hit 3 stars there the other day without even trying.  was able to do it again there this morning and it counts.  But I need 2 more.  I just suck at drifting.  

 

Good thing all it gives you is some CR.  Don't really care that much about it.  Already got the Porsche.  

 

Also finished the Blizzard Mountain DLC yesterday.   Lots of fun but glad I waited till it was on sale.  

Thanks for that, yeah after grabbing all but the drifting challenge I decided to return back to Blizzard Mountain. Did a few there and wasn't cutting it so I looked at the one at the top near Blizzard Peak. There's a patch of ice in the middle of the thing so you can get waaay sideways on that part lol. Was able to repeatedly 3 star that one and it counted for the challenge.

 

I hate drifting with a passion. As much as I adore the Horizon series I could do without drifting and bucket list challenges.

But I wanted to say that if it's like the other Forzathon challenges so far, you should be able to do the same drift zone three times to get the achievement.

That is correct, you only need to find one drift zone you're good at and then repeat, repeat, repeat. It's easiest if you have Blizzard Mountain with the snow and ice.

 

In Forza Horizon 3, for those having trouble with the Driftworks Challenge, I can confirm you can do the same one three times. You can also rewind midway through a Drift Zone if you did well on the first part, but messed up the later parts, as long as you do not leave the Drift Zone, cross the end line, or get a Failed message. Rewinding after any of those things will not count.

 

If you're like me and are awful at Drift Zones, try using the Tesla Model S with Ludicrous Speed. It goes 0 to 60 in 2.8 seconds, so you'll be able to gain much needed speed on a shorter road. Entering Drift Zones at higher speeds is the key to more points.

I used my Chevy Corvette Z06 Horizon Edition, gives you Drift Bonus, and it worked well on the top of Blizzard Mountain. Afterwards I went back to the Byron Bay and did donuts inside the Horizon Festival pavement area/road and badink 10 Burnout skills lol. 4/4 done

Yeah I had not gotten a 3 Star Drift on a Drift Zone until just the other day lol. I was surprised I got it, but not surprised when I realized I was sliding around an overpowered muscle car. You'd think a Lambo would work there but I'd always go too fast and whip the rear end around.

 

So grab a high powered muscle car.

Bonus if it's raining. 

Toggle that e-brake!

R.I.P. Chicago Blackhawks, sweeped by the Preds.
Unreal!

I've gone against one of my rules, granted I don't have as many as Gibbs does, on buying old Xbox 360 titles that are not BC; MX vs ATV: Alive, The Outfit & Stuntman Ignition.

I'm hoping that'll match the Scorpio, unless they come out with a purple console but I'm gonna guess not on that one.

^ Saw that posted on the Mass Effect group page on FB and a lot of us agree that article is full of shit. No, it's not good advice, let Bioware be Bioware and stop telling them what to do.

 

I don't understand why people kick whomever if they're not the level they think you ought to be, can't they still see your Apex rating?!

Is Darksiders II season pass worth the 84 cents? I Ask out of does a person with a huge backlog and DLC with no achievements need this at all?

You know when you're a CAG when you ask if a Season Pass is worth it at a discounted 84 cents, here's your sign.
