Top Gear

Not many people amaze me in the world. I’m merely mildly impressed by a lot of people –  but I have to admit I turn into somewhat of the stereotypical fan girl around the Top Gear crew. Those middle aged, fat, balding and tiny Englishmen do something to me that they really shouldn’t.

Bugger this got awkward all of a sudden.

Where was I… Oh yeah, a new video has been released by Top Gear in conjunction with the Xbox One and Forza and it definitely made me giggle.

Take a look and check out those lap times.

I’m no racing expert so I know there is no way I have any chance of betting The Stig but I’ll bet my bottom dollar that Nick is going to give this a go after his well received preview yesterday. You can also win 10 bonus internet points if you can tell me what country that car comes from and an extra 10 for naming its famous race.

Now I’m off to re-watch every single episode of Top Gear again.

      If you can’t create good publicity, you might as well pay for it. I reckon the closer we get to the bone’s launch the frequency of positive fluff articles will increase exponentially on all the major media players – until we just can’t take it any more, and we lose our shit like those kids who commented on Toys R Us’s youtube page.

      The Toys R Us incident is interesting. It exposes how toxic the gaming community has become (primarily because of the industry itself). I suppose you can argue that it’s Microsoft’s prerogative to pay Toys R Us to feature their console over the competition, but the blowback…. freaking amazing! The suits at Microsoft must be scratching their heads.

        Well, Forza and the One have to do something, GT Academy is making champions left and right, so they kind of need Top Gear to give them any kind of credibility.

      top gear signed a multi title deal for being used in the forza series… they would be stupid not to milk it

    Tiny? Are you shitting me? Jeremy Clarkson stands at 1.96m! If you mixed them all together, you would have above average heights! I can’t see the video though… is it supposed to be embedded?
