Played a bit and that game looks like it's gonna be really cool. I liked 2 enough but it felt a bit of a step back from the original, but 3 seems to be putting in the dumb fun stuff that was missing from 2. The first thing you do is race a guy in a jeep that is being suspended by a transport helicopter. That's the kind of dumb I can get behind.

Plus, the Australian setting looks fucking gorgeous, much better than the meh European setting in 2.

I don't know if this is the right place but can I create a TSM Group on Forza Horizon 3. I don't know if I can pass protect it and I probably wouldn't anyway.

Forza Horizon 3 just may be my GOTY so far. Looks fucking incredible and is fun as hell. They smartly went back to letting you explore around for things like the first one instead of making you go back and forth through the same areas like 2 did.

I'm already part of the Giant Bomb club (or I will when I finally unlock clubs).

Forza is just a bit too short of game. I mean there is plenty to do but I found all the barns pretty fast and the last race was a disappointment. Now I'm racing the Goliath over and over again to get wheelspins. I'm going to try online soon.

So even though I'm extremely behind on all my PS4 games I just can't quit drooling over Gears 4 (I love that series). I think the wife is going to buy me an Xbox One S and Gears 4 for Christmas.

Any other recommendations for X-Box One exclusive games?

And since I can't afford both. For those with both: better deal? Gold or PSPlus?

de Blob 2 is on sale for $3 this week. I remember playing it when I had GameFly and it just became backwards compatible and it's still a pretty fun and colorful game.

Rare Replay if you like Battletoads, Killer Instinct Gold, Banjo and Kazooie, Perfect Dark, and bunch of other games.
Killer Instinct
Sunset Overdrive is fun too.
Forza Horizon 2/3

If you play with friends, just go with the one they play on more. You do get more "free" games with Live because the 360 ones are backwards compatible.

Forza Horizon 3 is fucking tremendous and yeah, Sunset Overdrive is a really fun game you can probably get for $20 by now. Dead Rising 3 is good too, but maybe wait to see how 4 turns out when it comes out next month.

All three Mass Effect games will be backwards compatible since they are adding 2 and 3 today. Time to play through 2 again, I guess.

I would play through all three, but the first just does not hold up.

So do I ask for an X-Box One S bundle for Christmas or the Amazon X-Box One bundle with a free game download? It's $50 cheaper than the One S bundles.

December's Games With Gold are fucking boss:

- Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition (Dec 1-31)
- Outlast (Dec 16 - Jan 15)
- Outland (360) (Dec 1 - 15)
