Re: XBOX Game Pass (Ultimate)

Same on DIRT 5, Adam. Downloaded yesterday and played last night for 30 minutes. I'm petitioning Codemasters to return that half-hour of my life. Hard to believe this franchise has fallen this far, this quickly. DIRT 3 was the pinnacle of the series for me -- a perfect mix of arcade and sim. Driftin...

Re: MLB The Show 21

I'm not a baseball fan, although I enjoy baseball games. After playing this tech test, I get the fuss over MLB The Show for all these years by PS owners.

It's quality. Can't wait to buy it.

I'm still playing the ever-living-shit out of this game, and the X/S update will be a surefire $10.00 purchase.
It's a timeless classic! Love it.

Re: Going to make an interesting documentary some day

A betting man would say pain killers are involved here, this reportedly early AM and didn't get out until noonish LA time. Wonder why that is? Yep. 7:12 a.m. is an odd time to crash on a straight road in good weather. If painkillers are the culprit, the PGA Tour really needs to re-evaluate its stan...

Re: Laptop suggestions

Heh. I don't abuse laptops. They rarely leave my desk. When they do, they're in a padded computer bag. Windows 10 is Microsoft's best OS, by far. It's stable. Not as stable as MacOS, but a big improvement. It's the best Windows OS I've used since NT. Then again, the bar isn't that high. I can count ...

Re: Laptop suggestions

I was going to recommend MacBook Air or MacBook Pro with new M1 chip. Kick-ass machines. But you would need to buy 13-inch screens to fit in the budget with the Pro. A 16-inch MBP is $2,400. A 13-inch MacBook Air with the M1 chip is super light while boasting an aluminum chassis, not plastic. Why do...

Re: XBOX Game Pass (Ultimate)

I tried Wreckfest on an Xbox Live free play weekend. Was OK but not deep or fun enough to justify $30. But free? Yeah, it will get fun in a hurry. That's my same vibe with DIRT 5. I would NEVER pay for it, as I agree with DB that the DIRT franchise is slowly flushing down the bowl. The last good DIR...

The horrible performance of the Chiefs' makeshift offensive line due to injury and Bowles' decision to let his Tampa front four apply pressure without blitzes were the differences in this game. Oh, and Andy Reid's clock management at the end of the first half, which gave Brady a full minute to drive...
