The Philippines now has XBOX LIVE (based on Major Nelson posting)

Adam Sessler's Very Strange Comment For Forza Motorsport 5

...is the part where he seems really fascinated by the 'winning credits every time you race' game mechanic.

Seriously, Adam?

Next Gen Has Begun. And I Picked The Wii U.

When the launch stream for Xbone finally got started, I couldn't even make myself sit through it.

Every single month before launch, it's been bad news after bad news after bad news for my last favorite system.

- Forza 5 cars require ridiculous grind to get. Either that, or PAY for them with real money.

- Really bad scores for Dead Rising. And it's no longer a funny game.
- Same goes for Ryse Son of Rome.
- 720p for most Xbone games

The list of bad news goes on forever.
