Watching this on my laptop with my 360 and Kinect on and them saying XBox is causing so many random seizures on my 360.

Wheel by itself is a $28.43 value. I have a feeling that the game will be that much lower or more on Black Friday anyways. Roll on next deal.

Kingdoms of Amalur next. This will be a rock bottom price, get ready.

I don't go to Gamespot often (or at all) so I don't know what the relationship is between these people and Gamespot itself but there is something really off putting about watching a site that covers game trying to sell you stuff.


Are you suggesting that game reviews/coverage might be influenced by a financial relationship with content distributors? That has almost never happened with the slighlty possible exception of Every. Single. Time.

My favorite example of this was when MTV created an MTV movie award ("Best Film that Hasn't Been Released") for Transformers. The show was of course sponsored by Paramount/Dreamworks.

If you are interested in the Speed Wheel, this is actually a decent deal. Because as you pointed out, the Wheel is just under $30 and last Black Friday, Forza 4 was selling at $27 - $30. So if you wait until BF, you are almost guaranteed to find this package for $60 which is basically the same amount as GameSpot's deal.

Your issue really becomes, do you have Amazon credit or not? I have a ton of BB & GameStop credit so I will wait to piece this deal together myself. ;)

It is not like game websites are covering international politics. They cover games and to stay in business they need those games to sell just as much as the publishers. You are right. No reason to ever be surprised by this. Games "journalism" is an oxymoron.

There are a lot of places where its pretty obvious what is happening but what I find more annoying is when some game journalist takes it really personally when someone raises their suspicions. I hate when game journalists act like they're completely invulnerable to advertising and gifts from publishers when in reality this stuff completely works. Its not just a few places that are completely in publisher's pockets, more like many places that are a tiny bit compromised.

Origin is fine, been using it for almost 2 years now.
Hating on Origin is so 2011.
