The series have been adjusted to fit certain car categories and add more vehicles on the table. Compact Sports, SUV, Pacific Muscle, Roadster, Sports Coupe, American Muscle; Grand Touring; Track Specials, and Ultimate are just some of the series that you will be able to race in. Once you get the main handle on the game, youll be able to view around and check out your cars in the garage or the showroom. In the Garage Mode, you get to walk around and take a look around at what cars are available for that circuit. While looking around in first person mode, youll notice the cars that have yet to be unlocked under cloths, fans on the ceiling and yellow paint on the floor. I didnt notice any toolboxes, so I guess this was more of a paint shop then a mechanical shop. The Showroom is astounding. You can tour through all the cars in game in a huge building. There are still sheets over the ones that are still locked, but you can test drive them when you get farther in the game, even before buying them with Kudos. You can go up hallways that lead you to other showrooms showing off different styles of cars from various parts of the globe. I was rolling out of the showroom with a Jaguar XJ220 that you'll only own if you win the Powerball or get struck by lightening while playing your Xbox and make a TV movie out of it. You then get to run a few laps around the test track and compare each cars time to your previous runs, testing out the handling, braking, and acceleration on what car youre planning on purchasing.
The Live experience is what will not only show exactly what makes the Xbox the best console out there, but why Xbox has now made the best online gaming network to date. You will now be able to download Ghosts of the XboxLive subscribers whether theyre online or not. Being able to race the Ghost of the top players on Live should be motivation enough, if its not, then how does having a new challenge every week fit you? Well, thats what Microsofts plans are heading into this, as it will provide an even long term effect on playability. Not only will you be able to do this while on Live, but you can access the Ghosts while playing single player as long as youre connected to XboxLive. This was unheard of before this as no game has let you compare your scores or race against past leaders like this, while still being able to play on Live after that. Im very impressed with this game and Microsofts lean on XboxLive, its where its at.
Ultra Street Fighter 4 is still many months away, which means you have plenty of time to practice your combos and prepare before the the "ultimate" version of Street Fighter turns everything upside down again. Great savings for digital owners!
Since when did we get so lazy? Remember the days when we bought a new game or console, and the first thing we did before anything else was pore through the instruction manual to learn everything about the product wed just bought? Now we have video.
If youve already plunked down the cash for Battlefield 4 Premium, you may want to sit down, as weve got some bad news for you...but its likely that youve already got plenty of problems with the game already. What a bummer.
Xbox Ones self-publishing situation has been rather slow out of the gate, but the wheels are already in motion to rectify the situation. Today, Microsoft is excited to share some of the names of the many participants in its fledgling indie program.
When Microsoft’s Marc Whitten confirmed months ago that every Xbox One could be made into a developer kit, they weren’t kidding. Apparently it’s rather easy to do, but Microsoft has warned against doing so as the results could be harmful, and costly.
We dont normally report on these types of promos, as past Xbox "buy for a chance to win" contests have largely centered around junk food (and still do). At least Quarter Pounders and ravioli have SOME nutritional value, and the win odds are good!
