I don't think I've seen FH3 cheaper than this. At least physical.

This is probably my tipping point for jumping in. Thanks, OP.

Might jump on dead rising since I saw that they're apparently doing a difficulty patch early next year

Forza is amazing. I HIGHLY recommend it. It works pretty seamless from PC/XBOX if you get that version as well. As a person who conceptually loves racing games like Forza and Grand Turismo but always hits a brick wall skillwise and competition wise, FH3 is the sweet spot where its silly enough to not take itself super serious as a racer but also has those beats and many more that keep you coming back for more. Been spending a good part of my vacation playing it.

Hello everyone!

We at 3WIREL discovered that you could possibly get Forza 6 for free. We figured since this was a Forza thread (pushing an Horizon 3 deal), it was worth sharing this news here.
Xbox Turkey has put up a new promotion where any Xbox One player globally can get Forza Motorsport 6 for free. The only requirement is to have had an active gamer tag the last 7 days along with adding your Email address.

DR has a PC version? (I was referring to Forza)



sounds like my question just got answered! if it's a lagging, stuttering mess on a 1080 I'll move on.
its a mess on every system because the game only uses 1 cpu thread. its smooth at 30 fps vsyncd but the input lag is abut 150 ms. try and unlock the fps and it stutters like a mutherfucker

Some people have problems others don't. I have the play anywhere version and I've been playing almost exclusively on PC. I haven't had significant problems outside of the first few weeks before the patches. Others still have serious stuttering and low FPS problems.

those that claim they have no problems prove themselves wrong every time in the rare case they upload a video. in fact, theres not a single video ive yet seen of horizon 3 without awful stutter when not locked to 30 fps. just because stutter/input lag doesnt bother you doesnt mean the problem doesnt exist

How does Horizon play with a thrustmaster?
I picked up a Thrustmaster TX a week or so ago. It takes a ton of tinkering to get the wheel settings right otherwise you'll be spinning out like crazy. Now that I have my settings dialed in I'm starting to finish races at the head of the pack like I was with the controller.

I'm not gonna argue with you. You come into every thread that Forza Horizon 3 is mentioned and believe you speak for everyone. I personally don't have problems with the way the game plays. I don't have terrible hitching on my system. I'm not the only person who has said this to you. I recently bought a wheel to play this game on the PC. I don't have issues with input lag or massive stuttering problems. Do you think I would spend money to buy a Thrustmaster TX, T3PA Pro pedal set and an Alcantara wheel add on for a game that was performing terrible on my system?

Is this legit?
After we looked into things, it apparently is. People on Reddit has tried this and got success getting the game. We published this post due to seeing positive results on Reddit, proving this is legit. The author of this post (Verzu Chase) stated the following.

The only requirement is to have had an active gamer tag the last 7 days along with adding your Email address. By doing so you end up with the highly received racing game Forza 6 from Microsoft for free, and to increase the value of this deal Xbox users from other countries can also join this program. I would suggest using a translation program or a built-in browser translator (Google Chrome) if any Xbox gamers are interested. But make haste as the deal ends on Jan. 1st!

So, is this the lowest price it's been on PC, and if so, has the PC release been patched to the point where it will be worth getting? Yes, I read through the thread, but the video posted is from early October.

i think this is the most recent update? or close to it at least. the game is never going to be fixed. the problems get magnified during actual races with more cars on screen, dense vegetation areas, when it rains, and whenever theres more buildings in view.

im not. i have whats probably a better rig than you and have seen for myself how awful it is

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmSUpCmHujs

this is pretty representative of what people defending the game say "runs great for me!"
FH3 does NOT perform like that on my rig, at all. Its super smooth 60fps most of the time outside of the typical city areas that cause drops, but I see none of the hitching you have in that video.

What is the easiest way for me to upload a video? Not really well versed in that.

because that video doesnt use framerate smoothing
55fps for some reason seems to be my sweet spot

Is that your video? My game is not a stable frame rate (on average mid 40's) but it does not stutter that bad, but then again I'm not playing in 4K like that video, I play all may games in 1080p with my RX 480.

No, i only have the demo. I would never support this awful product with my money.

Heeeeey, for $30 I'll gamble on getting the windows store to work. I'll just start the DL when I go to sleep.

the windows store doesn't have it for sale and someone told me that the digital version of Dead Rising 4 works on Windows as well? can anyone confirm?
It's not a Play Anywhere title. There is a Windows 10 store version, buying the game on Xbox digitally does not grant it to you.

Really wish DR4 on PC would drop this low. Guess I might as well wait it out for the Steam release now.
