re: forza 5 or forza horizon 2 - EastcoastEER
I haven't played the original Horizon in awhile so it's a little fuzzy, but when I say no tuning, I literally mean no tuning menu. The upgrade game-mechanic is still there, identical to the regular Forza games. So you can still install new upgraded engine/suspension parts, do engine/drivetrain swa...

re: forza 5 or forza horizon 2 - EastcoastEER
Horizon 2. It will have about 90% of the car content that 5 has, but it will be set in a totally open free-roam world, with day/night cycles and weather effects. Forza 5 is track based circuit racing only, no night racing or weather. The only thing Horizon 2 will be missing compared to 5 is so...

I just downloaded DA2 (for $5) in order to get ready for Inquisition. I've had Origins for awhile now, but haven't gotten too far into it yet. I understand Origins is loved by tons of people, but I am just not feeling it at this point - I feel like I don't have a clue how any of the core syste...

re: What should the punishment for flopping be? - EastcoastEER
[quote]What should the punishment for flopping be?[/quote] I don't see how it can adequately handled 100% in-game. Everything happens too fast, and without slow-mo instant replay its often hard to tell if legitimate contact was made prior to a player going down. I think there should be an offic...

My son just turned 2 a few months back and we are seeing similar things from him.

I'm sales for a specialty industrial contractor. My sick-to-your-stomach, "oh mother of frick" moments only happen AFTER we are locked into a contract and a problem is found. I've only had one of those moments, and I was later able to find out a decent solution for all parties involved. It was n...

re: FIFA World Cup Brazil - EastcoastEER
Picked it up a last week. FIFA is not an annual purchase for me (last one I got was '12), but I absolutely love the World Cup games. Don't have much experience with FIFA 14, but the play definitely feels quick. It seems almost too easy to get behind the defense with medium-range thru balls. Al...

I hope so, but I need another 3 or so years to be able to give a more definitive answer.
