    Was Terraria a GwG title for X1? If not, I think I'll pick that up. Hard pass on everything else.
    It was GwG on the 360 a while back, not X1.

    Bought Rock Zombie but having problems getting the game to recognise my gamertag (tried logging in and out, rebooting, etc, for about 2 hours last night), so I am not able to earn achievements. Anyone else? Any fixes for this yet or on the way does anyone know?

    Tempted by WRC 5, but I've never played any of these series.

    Are there people out there who have and wish to share their experience?

    From the graphics and gameplay I saw on youtube, it looks pretty decent.

    Got standard Forza Horizon 2, I'll wait until the DLC or season pass are on sale separately. Bought Brothers to play again too seeing as its a decent game and I got it with GWG on 360, developers deserve a bit more money.

    Got Terraria. Even though the 360 version betrayed me and deleted my progress a long way in to it, I can't say no to that price.

    All the problems with the forza horizon 2 and forza 5 servers happened not long after they released forza horizon 3.

    Just seems like they moved some servers over and bugged the games. Prob not the case but as a player It certainly seems like that. "Screw the old stuff focus on the new stuff." Seems to be full time company motto in the gaming industry 😒.

    Fuck you TURN 10, fix your damn games first before putting them on sale!!!!!!! Horizon 2 online components ain't workingangry. And here I was, thinking I could first do Forza 5 before doing Horizon 2 because the game has only been out for 2 fucking years!!!!!!angryfacepalm
    FH2 online seem to be affected by the recent GwG of the the first game. When I am getting to FH2, I hope everything is in order....

    UNO's good, I have a review up for it.

    Thanks for the info! I thought I remembered it being GwG but couldn't remember for which console.
    Pretend inferiority and encourage their arrogance.

    Just to be sure about Forza Horizon 2.

    The DLC (Storm Island and Prosche) are only available in the Complete Add-Ons pack which is way too overpriced. Or available separately.

    The wise thing to do here is to wait for a sale on these DLC ?
    Is there any advantage of getting car packs (Like in Forza Horizon, it helped for medals) ?

    There are no medals in FH2, so there is no advantage to buying car packs aside from having a wider choice of vehicles. Be warned that the servers are playing up and won't let you create private sessions though

    Well I'm glad I got outbid on WRC 5 on eBay this weekend since that is now bought here, might as well get the 360 version too.
    Did you buy the 360 version in the end?

    I am wondering how the 360 version specifically, runs because I've read bad things about the Xbox One version stuttering. Does the 360 version do the same I wonder.

    I've tried the PC demo and the game seems mediocre, but I figure it might be worth the sale price - IF it actually runs smoothly anyway.
