    Post a pic of your real car

    Well, I lied.... somewhat. The charger R/T ended up being WAY out of my price range once taxes and warranties were all included in the final price tag (over $70K), so I had to compromise with a local 2016 SXT AWD, which costed less than half the price. Probably for the best considering that...

    Show off your latest purchase!

    A few things. Two essentials, two not so much. Still waiting for the dragon window sticker to show up, but aside from the floor mats being a tad too wide, its all worked out thus far. The wheel locks were my main concern, but they fit nicely.

    Post a pic of your real car

    Finally saying goodbye to my first car this coming weekend. Its not much; had to replace a few parts, transmission's starting to go (accelerating from 1st to 2nd will occasionally result in a hard jolt), the oil has started to foam with rapid coolant drops (suspect a cracked head gasket), and...

    Forza Horizon 5 Confirmed Set in Mexico, Launches November 9

    "Gift Drops – Send and receive gifts from the community. You can take one of your cars, apply upgrades and a paint job and then drop it as a gift to another player." Caught my eye. Something I've wanted for a while, but I don't see it lasting long if it results in the return of "Facebook...

    Forza Horizon 5 Confirmed Set in Mexico, Launches November 9

    So I'm more sold after watching gameplay. Convertibles actively going up & down (2:51), and the location actually looks very good.

    Forza Horizon 5 Confirmed Set in Mexico, Launches November 9

    To echo other thoughts, I'm not too hyped about this. Mainly because we're jumping between one Horizon to the next without a Motorsport to break it up and build anticipation. Makes the announcement less eventful and feel, as others say, more like a FH4 expansion than a proper release. I'm also...

    What's your Dream Car, and are you pursuing it?

    To clarify, bi-weekly as in every two weeks, not twice a week. One of those terms that means two things, but yes it is an option now.

    What's your Dream Car, and are you pursuing it?

    My dream car tends to change every decade or so. As a child I adored the Lamborghini Murcielago, as a teenager my dream machine was a black McLaren MP4-12C Spider, and as of late its a white Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante (that's a mouthful). But I doubt I'll be able to afford so much...

    Hot Wheels Unleashed Available for Pre-Order, Launches September 30

    Odd boost sound on Fast Gassin. MotorStorm flashbacks make me feel like its going to explode at any minute.

    Forza Horizon 5 Rumors Suggest Mexico Location

    Have not, and likely will not considering how long the pandemic is going. But I get a decent enough picture (lots of of yellow & orange). The southern half of the country looks nice enough, but I doubt Playground will exclude the bulk of the map to just those parts. The nice thing about...

    Forza Horizon 5 Rumors Suggest Mexico Location

    Not too excited if this is the case. I like Mexico's cultures, but its one of those countries that I think lowly of as far as landscape is concerned. If Playground wanted a country from Latin America, I would have preferred somewhere like Argentina or Bolivia. Or if they just wanted to do a...

    PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series Shortages Might Last Into 2022

    Worked my butt off to get my brother a PS5 in November (and succeeded), but now I regret not looking for a XSX for myself. Can't even see one in online stores for so much as a split second. If not for others experiencing the contrary, I'd say they haven't been restocked since December. I'm not...

    Hot Wheels Unleashed Available for Pre-Order, Launches September 30

    Some uncut gameplay from GameSpot. Can really see all the scratches and imperfections on the cars, and I love it.

    DIRT 5 Update 4.00 and Uproar Content Pack Arrive March 30

    Lafayette Eulogy brings back good memories. Though its odd that they renamed it as the Jackson Eulogy, and I don't know how people will feel about it being thrown in with the classic rally class.

    For those of you who actually received their PS5s

    Got my Brother's off Amazon through a 3rd party retailer called "Entertainment World CANADA!". They said it'd be a seven day delivery, but it only took three. The box was also mummified in tape because that was back when people were stealing consoles in the mail & replacing them with bags of sugar.
