Kaens,

Thanks, I saw them, but they were answered in previous questions. Fshguy is still the only person to call VINGO and send me his win information via email

Round 1
  1. Fshguy
  2. etc

I would like that, I'm sure it will build suspense as the slots fill in, BUT if you want to keep the mystery as part of the competition I get that too. Your show and so far I think people are into it.

If you don't own an xbox one, then you can't be held accountable for Forza 5. Get what you can. During the confirmation process I will check stats and everything. No problem.

I'm not saying it doesn't suck for him, being at a disadvantage, but, giving him an 800 point lead on everyone else on one square, and then giving him (potentially) another free square puts him at much at an advantage over everyone else as he was behind everyone else.

I don't own Forza 4 or Forza Horizons, so, I shouldn't be held accountable for them, by that logic, right?

I will concede and say I answered far too quickly on the Forza answer. He will need to win the bonus like everyone else. Thank you for keeping me straight Smile

Futiles, you still need to buy all those games and 80% them, then you need to play some JRPGs.
Video games are like life, difficult, frustrating, but most of all, they're fun and rewarding when you slow down and enjoy them.
3 retails is 3 new games, therefore you will get the 3k in a week also.
3 games in a week is just finishing up games, arcade or retail, just finish 3 games.

Arcade is:
XBL, Win8, anything like that.

There's no advantage gained or lost by anyone, unlike if he changed the rules regarding Forza. XB Fitness was free for those with an XB1, for those who don't have one they'll have to buy or rent (or already own) a fitness game. I think the fitness video was more about posting something embarrassing anyway. 8)

And even if there was a JRPG square, I don't HAVE to do it...

(And I play a Turn-Based JRPG every other system. So, Dragon Warrior on NES, Grandia II on Dreamcast, Blue Dragon on Xbox 360, and I guess I will play one on the next gen console, so, X1 will likely not get one...)
