Ok I'm currently watching The Final Cut, and while I've seen 5 mins here and there previously, this movie is weird.

Dear Forza,
I love you and love your series. I love it even more with Play anywhere. Sadly we've driven the same turns, in the same cars for quite some time. I'm not saying we are done. But right now I need a bit of a break for all the other stuff coming out this month.
Don't get me wrong we're still friends with benefits, but I need to play the field a bit more.

Love always (except for that breaking shit they did in the last game),
Half Elf

Oh, and isn't is 'preceded' rather than 'proceeded'? Just asking.

Yes, I noticed that too.

You noticed nothing. These aren't the droids you're looking for.

After looking at Walter's site and all the logo's, the droids are probably in the scrap pit with my youth!

I picked it up for the PS4, and haven't put much time into it. I'm smuggling the kid out of the city, does the game pick up after that? Because I thought the intro was really well done.

Ok my 411 on certs is pretty non-existent, so can someone answer a few questions for me.

1) How do I check to see if my certs are "good and updated"
2) Why wait 6 months to update/remove these certs?

I think I remember participating in a beta for this game way back before its original release.

I still have my beta kit with the paperwork and NDA from MS! (I keep a record of all the games I beta test, now getting close to 125 (123 to be exact, the last was War In The West' by Matrix and on-going, constant testing of 'Empyrion') over twenty-odd years) I wish they would bring back 'Earth and Beyond'! I fuckin' LOVED that game! And they shut it down so quick, I never understood why? It was so cool! If any game needs to be revived, it's that!

EDIT: I just found out there's an emulator for it! OMG! OMG! OMG!

=-Rigs-=

Rigs... get the hell out of my downstairs closet and put all my Beta CD's back in the box!

Does that mean my credit card info is no longer safe using 1-click w/Amazon. Should I call equifax? so confused

READ THE FUCKING ARTICLE.
People who only shopped for groceries at Whole Foods should not be affected, according to the company, which said only venues such as taprooms and table-service restaurants located within stores which use a different point-of-sales system were affected.

Can a sale of the franchise for billions be far behind?

Microsoft has their $3B queued up.

Oh god shut the hell up, don't give them any ideas, or we'll have another Bungie/Halo situation, and MS will buy PUBG to be a system seller/launch title for the Xbox One X.

So it appears that Turn 10/Microsoft removed more credits for turning assists/damage/whatever on or off to increase the difficulty, and instead have mods that can be good or bad but give a bonus to credits.

As someone who's played all but Forza Horizon 2, credits have never been an issue for 2 reasons. 1) The game may have 700 cars, but it doesn't mean I'm going to buy them. 2)All the games give you a ton of credits, so much in fact I have MILLIONS of credits in each game that I will never spend because of the Auction House (which lets me buy the unicorns pretty cheap), wheel spins (which gives me the Forza Edition of cars I want, or The Forza Hub app on Windows 10 that gives me a shitload of free credits every week for the majority of the Forza games.

But what I'm surprised no one is bitching about is the fucking REWIND feature.

But again nothing in Forza 7 can be purchased with RL money beyond DLC cars/tracks, so I don't see this as an issue.

Ultimate Edition of Forza Horzion 3 actually had all but the Porche car pack I believe. But you did have to purchase the other "islands" like Hot Wheels and Blizzard (but they were reasonably priced).

Confession time.

I have seen MAYBE 45 mins of Blade Runner. I understand there are roughly 5-6 versions of the movie. Which would be THE (or multiple) version(s) to watch before seeing 2049?

I really dislike Westerns, but if you never played Red Dead Redemption you are doing yourself a disservice.
