A little work never hurt anyone. Besides, this is a lot funner than that 3 letter word you mentioned.

I think it was more that I downloaded the pack and was excited to try that new mustang and went to my garage and it wasn't there. More of a sad face moment I guess. I got the car I really have been saving for last night - the Zonda.

Yeah, I know what you mean. The Zonda is pretty sweet. Hopefully santa will bring me some MS points this year so I can spring for the season pass.

FYI for anyone on the fence, this game will be $15 at Walmart on Black Friday.

I do agree with you on the quick glance, you paid for it you should get to play with it when you want to, but truth be told if you had every car instantly from the car packs it would get old rather quickly. As krashhole said they're allot funnier to drive after earning them. :)

I saw that. I still think its mistake and they meant Forza 4 but either game at that price should an instant buy. :)

I really wanted to hold out until BF to pick up this game. Oh well, I don't have any regrets paying full price. It's a lot of fun.

MSU, looking at your gamer card I see you play XCOM. I tried the demo when it first hit the dashboard, but I couldn't get past the whole moving each player to a certain spot. I been thinking of giving it another shot because the game really looks good.

I played the originals back in the day and they are phenomenal games, the new one is too by all accounts, and it suppose to be cheap at someone's black friday too. (Wal-Mart or Best Buy, I cannot remember which.)

There are so many games at great prices for BF. I was showing my wife the BB and WM ads last night and the first thing she said was "you're not buying any games for yourself" I was like damn woman, I haven't even got to the game pages yet LMAO.

That's when you tell her, "It needn't be me but someone better be out buying me games at those prices!" :lol:

Just checked Walmart has Xcom for 25 on BF.

XCOM is great. If you can snag it for $25 that's super awesome. But you'll have to brave Walmart. I'd just wait for it to drop to $40 at amazon and call it a day. LOL. Or really I think it's nearly worth full price. I say nearly because I don't think any game is worth $60 no matter how good. Games should be $50 tops.

I like strategy games, and two of my all-time favorites are turn-based ones: Heroes of Might & Magic 3 & Valkryia Chronicles 1, which has influences on XCom. Also really enjoyed the Advance War games, and liked FF Tactics well enough.

It's not a misprint on Horizon being $15 at WM on BF, if you look at the ad, you can see Horizon's pink spine easily.

My XCom play was from a free rental from Family Video so it'll be awhile before I play again.

Oh, its clearly the cover art for Forza Horizon, no doubt about it, but let me put it this way... If people show up for Black Friday to be greeted by Forza 4 being on sale and employees who can only shrug powerless at the mistake... I wouldn't be the least bit surprised.

I made the mistake of promoting krashhole to club leader instead of just adding him to the leaders... This removed me from the leaders and I can no longer add people to the club. He's suppose to promote/add me to the leaders again.

Anyhow, I logged in today to try and add you but he has not add me so I can not help out you or anyone else... Hopefully, he be online today to take care of it.

How are more people not playing this? And why is it so damn hard to get into a game. They also should have a separate section to show what club members are online.

I played some Horizon today and sent an application to the CAG club. I'll admit I'm also playing Halo 4 but once Black Ops II comes out on Tuesday that's where most of my time will be spent :-o but I'll still play some Horizon for my racing fix.

Also, how do you get the bonus cars for playing the demo?

Once you've played the demo you will get a message in horizon where you can get the car.

halo 4 is a lot better than halo 3 in every way. I wasn't a fan of 3 either.

I have NEVER been a fan of Halo MP, only the SP campaign. But with Halo 4, the MP is awesome.

Its cool. :) I see that you did what I did and demoted yourself right off the leader list... Honestly, I'm not sure what they where think with that one click demotion thing, you should not be able to accidentally remove yourself from group leader and a co-leader all in one click... That issue, when clicking on the wrong member could outright kill a club's ability to add any members if the newly promoted member never boots the game up again.

Anyhow, I got you added to the leadership group which gives us four now... I'm not sure how active the other two are but the two of us should be able to cover stuff in the here and now. :)

Am I the only one with zero interest to play halo? I bought halo3 again because my son wanted it and I tried to play a little and was completely turned off.


No you're certainly not the only one... I know many of friends with no interest in playing the game/series... but I honestly feel that people should give it a try if at all possible. Its been a real amazing experience so far and one that while Halo does feel evolved.

I have NEVER been a fan of Halo MP, only the SP campaign. But with Halo 4, the MP is awesome.


I'm old enough to remember playing split screen MP Halo: CE and loving it... but not really loving the rest of the series minus Reach's MP... but truth be told I mostly played SWAT or Anniversary so its likely more of an engine I liked and not so much the normal MP experience.

It's not in your garage. It is in your in game messages.
