#233: The Xboxcast & Jeremy

Simone is being slack. So lets talk to Jeremy! And what should we talk about? I am glad you asked. Forza Horizon 4! Its not like any other games exist right about now... We dive into some cool Forza stats, and spend way to long going on about the drifitng and the sound of crashing into the walls. Its great! And then as per usual, its new games, some gaming news - like For Honor getting a really pretty graphics update - and giving Jeremy a very hard time. But don't worry. He gives...
