Hey Forza fans! Following Insight Racing’s solid start to the CTSCC season in Daytona last week, I’ve made virtual replicas of both BMW race cars for road racing and Forza fans alike to drive and enjoy in Forza Motorsport 4. To show my support for the Ohio-based team, I’ll be giving away these designs for free for the duration of… Read more →

Warthog

2554 AMG Transport Dynamics M12 Warthog FAV

Look what I just found in the Forza Autovista garage! Don’t know when or how it got there, but it has me wondering what auto reviews might be like in 500+ years. Maybe something like this: The 2554 AMG Transport Dynamics M12 Wathog FAV is powered by a 12-litre hydrogen-injected ICE powerplant. In a standard 1G environment, the Warthog has… Read more →

FM3 fantasy livery for Mitsubishi Evo 10

My FM3 JDM Shining Monkey Lancer Evo 10 GSR

Forza Motorsport 3 is out for Xbox 360 and I’ve finally had some time to sink my teeth into it a bit. The short is this game tops the racing sim market. I played Sony’s Gran Turismo Prologue and FM3 delivers a closer-to-life driving experience. My reasons are plentiful, but the biggest difference might well be the virtual tire physics… Read more →

Download the Guitar Hero 3 demo for Xbox 360

Move over Joel Zumaya, my wife and I are already getting our guitair-wailing fingers going on the heals of my beloved’s “Guitar Hero” Rock Out 30th Birthday Party.

Get on Xbox Live with cheap wireless-to-Ethernet tutorial

I played with the 360 a few weeks before subscribing to the XBOX Live service. After hours upon hours of playing PGR3, Perfect Dark Zero and Kameo over and over again all by myself, I was ready to get onto Live. My cable modem and, thus my Internet connection, is located two stories above in my office, however, the logistics… Read more →

Project Gotham Racing versus real life

Though there really is no substitute for the real thing, video games are excellent ways to curb your own need for speed. You won’t die in a fiery crash. Your insurance premiums will never go up. You don’t even have to leave the house. Although I haven’t been playing for a couple weeks now, PGR3 is definitely one of my… Read more →
