Turn 10 responds to Forza Motorsport 5 economy feedback photo
Turn 10 responds to Forza Motorsport 5 economy feedback
by Brett Zeidler

If you've been playing Forza Motorsport 5, you're probably very familiar with the game's awful microtransactions. If not, basically the game uses tokens you buy in-game that can be used to purchase cars if you don't have enough credits. The problem is it's severely broken and takes advantage of consumers, specifically with the value of said tokens being misleading.

Players are not happy, and Turn 10 responded to both their feedback and in-game data with programs to be implemented this week as a means of tiding players over for the supposed permanent changes to come to the Forza 5 economy.

The best and worst games of the week - Xbox One is here! photo
The best and worst games of the week - Xbox One is here!
by Wesley Ruscher

After last week's PlayStation 4 review domination, Microsoft finally got it's chance to strut its stuff with the Xbox One. Forza Motorsports 5, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, Crimson Dragon, Ryse, and a handful of other exclusive titles flooded our pages this week. But regardless of all the Xbox One hype, their games were far from the biggest titles of the week.

Two titles, fin fact, garnered our coveted 10 out of 10 score. Nintendo's Super Mario 3D World and from Little Big Planer creators, Media Molecule, Tearaway. If you've been holding out on either the Wii U or PS Vita, you may have just found your first two must have system-selling titles of the year.

Review: Forza Motorsport 5 photo
Review: Forza Motorsport 5
by Dale North

We've had plenty of racing games come out at console launches, but we've never had a Forza Motorsport game. Don't get me wrong -- I love powersliding around silly tracks while rocking out to Japanese techno anthems. It's just that as a racing fan, I'll end up wanting more later.

Where your typical launch racer might be a tasty fast food cheeseburger, a new Forza game would be like a dry-aged cowboy ribeye, broiled medium, and topped with butter and grilled onions. I want more. I want something I can sink my teeth into. I want something that will leave me full and satisfied, fat and happy.

The Forza Motorsport 5 Car Pass is kind of gross

It's usually not particularly surprising when a major release announces that it's sashaying to market with a season pass in tow. I mean, we live in a time where the game you bought isn't the game you get, as former EA CEO Joh...

I hope you like these new Xbox One racing wheels...

There's big talk of "equation language" for new kinds of force feedback in this Xbox One racing accessories video, and that sounds neat and all, but I think Microsoft is going to find that racing fans are going to push back o...
