#13121850 Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens-SPOILERS INSIDE

Nope he died as a result of injuries inflicted by Luke , anything else is revisionist

you need to rematch Jedi, he died from the electrocution he took from the emperor when he threw him over. It fried his life support suite and he died.

Anyway, no idea where my in-laws got it, but they got me a special digital preorder of Force Awakens

I'll keep my eye on Elantras and Mazda's as well. CX3 doesn't look bad at all, regular Mazda 3 looks pretty sweet as well.
 
Weird issue with the Mazdas. Seems like everything Mazda in the city are priced 3 or 4 grand higher than what national sites are saying they should be. If I drive 35 miles to Ogden I can get some better prices. Isn't that kinda weird?


As a guy that works in auto loans, stick to foreign, cars will keep their value better trust me, we even look at that when doing decisions on cars. Hyundai is a great auto company they do have the best factory warranty on the market. 60,000 for everything, 100,000 for drivetrain. Wife and I both had hyundai's, anything happened we took it to the dealer and it was handled.

The Mazda CX-3 is a new model that just came out in October. Look at reviews, they are getting high marks for features and even power. Don't let the 143 (I think) hp fool you, it's the lightest suv on the market, making the torque much higher and more powerful, not to mention great gas mileage as a result (32 mpg). The starting 20,000 price tag is great, for a $1000 more you should be able to get all premium fetuses as well. Sun roof, heated seats, Bose sound, etc. it's a new great value.

Both Hyundai and Mazda are great options!

I think it's about time for a new car. Considering a Corolla, Civic, or Cruze right now. Something that size for sure.


What about a Mazda CX 3 crossover? Living in SLC I would figure awd would help, similar price, and great gas mileage

I guess they added gameplay to the PS4 version because the PS3 version had none.


I understand you didn't like the game, but as someone who played all the Telltale games, this one played a lot better and the rewind feature was a great part of the strategy of the game... To me that was gameplay and a step above for this genre of story telling. Up there with Heavy Rain

Finished Life is strange this morning... I actually really liked it. Squat Enix gives their try at this type of game and crush the gameplay, but Telltale can't get their shit together and release buggy messes because their engine sucks! Loved all the episodes, 5 dragged on a bit and one the endings you can choose really sucks and it makes you realize there really is only one ending that makes sense

People who saw Force Awakens early (other than reviewers who should still be under embargo) either worked on it or are connected with people who worked on it, so yeah, I wouldn't expect a ton of bad press to come from them.


Patton Oswald saw it early and he is a big nerd who would definitely say if it were bad... But raved that JJ had done it, made a good Star Wars akin to the originals

With the price of used cars higher don't you just get screwed when buying out the lease? It is a used car and has a higher value then in the past.


Notice I didn't say the value of used cars is higher, the price is. Trade ins are going for less than ever and dealers are charging a premium to sell them back because supply and demand. I work in loans and the prices dealers have been charging have never been higher. It's because buying a new car has never been cheaper and leasing is becoming very popular.

Like what was said, I know how much my Jeep will be when I buyout the lease, and I will know everything about the car. Once our lease is up, our $40,000 jeep will only need a $14,000 loan to buy. Win win since we love it and will know the car before buying

I've decided that I just want to lease/rent everything in my life.  I can't see the value in owning anything anymore (outside of a house, but even that's a bit iffy).  I'm currently leasing a van, it's been awesome.  I've had it for two years and I'm probably going to roll to a new lease this month and get a new van because why not.  My wife and I jumped on the phone leasing bandwagon this weekend and it turned out to be a really good deal (we're still on the ex-employee program so my new phone ended up being $3/month and she did the iphone forever thing for $15).  Of course the value of the phones we 'owned' is about completely tanked so it makes me wonder why anyone ever buys them outright anymore.
 
when I buy games nowadays I look at them as a short term proposition too - I play them and when I'm done I get what I can out of a resale/trade.  But if I could just rent them for a reasonable cost in a convenient way I'd be all in - like if psnow did ps4/vita games and would actually download them instead of stream them.  
 
I'd lease a laptop too if they hadn't gotten so ridiculously cheap lately.  but undoubtedly by the time I'm ready for a new laptop the one I have now will be a technological paperweight in terms of resale value.  so why own it?


As a guy working in loans... Honestly leasing vehicles is becoming more and more viable with used car prices sky rocketing. It is honestly a better option most of the time to lease. Not to mention the mileage restriction isn't a huge hump if you love the car and just want to keep it anyway. We are leasing a jeep and even though we may be slightly over on mileage, we think we are going to keep it at the end of the lease!

Tyler, same thing in Colorado. Lived here my whole live and I've had maybe 5 snow days from elementary to college... Stuff rarely closes here due to weather, it has to be so bad in order for them to do. I always laugh when I see other cities close down for a couple inches and we get 8-10 and everything is still open
