Gaming Season has begun!

Games Glore!

Gaming Season, as certain people like to call it has begun, with the big titles coming or have come out! Battlefield 3, MW3, 007 Goldeneye: Reloaded, Forza 4, Need for Speed: The Run, Soul Calinur V and Ace Combate: Asault Horizon are among the titles. This really looks one of the best years yet in terms of Gaming! I just can’t wait till these games come out.

Forza Motorsport 4:Speedy Sequel

Two years ago saw the release of Forza Motorsport 3, It is a great game which I only discovered a few months ago. On the 14th October we will see the release of the sequel Forza Motorsport 4 (watch the E3 trailer) which has been co-released with the British television show ‘Top Gear’. So whats the difference? This game is everything about Forza 3 but even better! The solo (which is what I play) is all too familiar, travelling round to the world racing on famous tracks earning cash and experience points, but:

Forza 4-Mercedes SLS AMG

You will spot clearly better visuals, some of the best at the moment. With additional track side elements showing themselves. Brighter, more aesthetically pleasing scenery. Complementing 7-11 cars battling it out to win.

Cornering, Overtaking, Drifting, Slipstreaming, Tailgating, Speed etc. now get awarded by badges, which you can attached to your racer profile. Now when you level up, you get to choose from a selection of cars; you don’t get forced upon one.  You have a 500+ garage to choose from, which will keep you busy for a while.

Handling is ‘The pinnacle of the console driving experience’, each car handling differently. Using ‘Kinect’ with this game will make it much more enjoyable, as it will feel more like an intense simulator than a video game. You can play around with doors, bonnets, engines, etc. If you want, listen to a small monologue about the car and its parts from Jeremy Clarkson.

A new ‘Autolog’ rival system such as in ‘Need for Speed Hot Pursuit’ (another good racing game) has been put in to increase competitive spirit. There is a club system like ‘Clans’ in CoD were you can gather racers together and share cars and other resources. You can assign roles like tuner and vinyl designer and obviously take on other clubs!

This looks like a truly breath-taking game, one which I hope to play, it will be on my christmas list! The graphics and exotic locations really do it for me. The diversity of cars and difference between them looks awesome!
