Achievement Discussion

Look Ma, No Controller!5 Use Kinect to drive any car in Free Play.
I dont have Kinect, If I want to play motion sensor I would of not sold the Wii for 50$ I won once.

Anyone dissapointed? I know its no big deal but to me that is stupid because No one IMO uses kienct.. Il probly wont get 995 but I will surely try.

Anyone else is in the same boat as me?

Whole list can be found HERE.

Same boat? You bet! No way I will ever buy a Kinect. I have seen people using it and there is no way, not for me. 995 game for me too, maybe 985, unicorn cars are hard to get.

Unicorn Cars are usually put on the auction house by Turn10 and go for stupid money like $20+ million credits so they were rare in Forza3 and hard to come by

Turn10 say they'll have there own tab in the auction house now so they'll be easier to find (but still not as easy to win) and they'll be putting more on in Forza4 so hopefully more people can get them

My friends and I were discussing that Forza 4 would probably simply have a very simple, low point Kinect acheivement... sadly, we were right. Time to borrow the roommates' Kinect!

Id rather go shoot my 300mag at a bear or anything then at the tv with a plastic thing.

A gaming system IMO you need a remote good gameplay/online and graphics. Now forza inputs kinect.

Just saying Atleast 20 people I know in town got new xbox without KINECT. Only 2 person I know that have kinect is its there parents bought it for kids.

First they did it with Rainbow Six Vegas, now with Forza? How long 'till they make something for the Xbox 360 that costs a thousand dollars and start creating achievements that require them?

Anyways, I'm definitely getting this game but I won't settle for anything less than 1000G. I might have to rent a Kinect, somehow.

This is a terrible first post for the Achievement Discussion thread. It's just going to be talk about that one achievement. The whole list is fine and balanced.

Thumbs down

The achievements list is one big disappointing for me!! Looks exactly the same as Forza 3 but now the list contains very ugly arcade-looking achievement-pictures. And it will be no fun at all to get all these achievements because completing an endless eventlist full of boring races just sucks!

The Kinect achievement makes me just angry!

Maybe the beauty of the game and the new online-options can save this game, but I'll wait untill it's low-priced!

I know i have to tread carefully, seeing as this is an achievement site and all but, Forza is one of those games you buy for the sheer pleasure of simulated driving and near realistic graphics.

Yeah sure i'm going to work towards getting as many achievements as i can but considering how many people pre ordered this game, or even had the intention of buying it before this list was revealed goes to show that the game is worth more than the achievements. How many people can honestly say they wait to see what the achievement list is for a game before deciding whether to buy it?

So yeah, the majority of people will end up with 995/1000, but to refuse to buy the game because of the kinect achievement is like finally getting a date with a super model than cancelling at the last minute because you find out she's missing a pinkie toe

Exactly! Win ALL races, upgrade again to max level, now even more demanding that players need to play up to 10th season.

As for Kinect, I suppose there is a risky method: asking those who have Kinect to "recover gametag" for those who don't to help them get that 5G. Of course this is risky since the email and password are needed

For the kinect 1, Just borrow one and quit your bitching. It's a piss easy achievement. The list looks fun and the game looks great. I love cars period, so yes I'm excited.

Yeah, I'd have to say that achievement addiction is spiraling out of control if one would actually avoid a game they've been looking forward to, simply because of the inability to add an extra five points to their gamerscore.

I remember the days when "for fun" was the only reason people played video games.

My main issue with the Kinect one is that I have no friends who have Kinect to borrow it from.

They are all old school like me and think Kinect is a kids gimmick and refuse to touch it. Being old has some disadvantages.

Ya that's pretty sad. But if that's all it takes to make you not buy the game you're not a true gearhead to begin with so that's fine.

Agreed. Achievements are irrelevant when it comes to Forza. That's what games like Portal are for...cheevos.
