Forza Horizon 3 is racing toward a delisting

Forza Horizon 3 is not long for this world. We're quickly approaching the four-year anniversary since it launched, and that's probably when it'll run out of gas -- at least for new buyers. Microsoft is delisting Forza Horizon 3 so...

Review: Forza Horizon 3

You and me, Carter! We're racing for slips! And not the "now I own your car" kind of slips, but pink slips. The loser's fired and has to go work in some other corner of the industry! Wait, what? We can both review Forza Horizon 3? Oh, that ...
