Default Forza 3

Gamestop announced an LE edition of Forza 3.

This comes with

Can't wait for this game.

Nice, I couldn't spend $80 on a video game though. Did anyone see the video at the bottom? I'm guessing that's the intro video, it's not really doing the game any good IMO.

I dont know if I should get it, I want the R8 and the 2GB USB, everything else in the bonus, I dont really care.

@alvino

How do you drift in Forza 2? I tried, but I usually end up losing control, crashing, or going too slow to actually pull it off where my opponents would pass me. Got an advice?

Depends on the car you're driving and how you tune it. A good track to try it would be Mugello (last hairpin before pit straight) or Suzuka (first banked hairpin and the following 'S' curves). The key really is throttle control. Too much gas and you'll spin out and too little and you'll just straighten out. Entry speed also plays a role in your drifts as well. If you're in a relatively underpowered car you'll have to compensate by initiating your drift at a faster speed where as if you have a high powered car with plenty of torque, you can go in a bit slower and use that torque to power though.

It's mostly practice though. I just keep driving back and forth on one hairpin to get it right. The good thing about Forza 3 is the Replay feature where you can rewind your current game back to a certain point and continue from there. Great for practicing drifting.
