It seems as if Walmart is giving everyone a preview of holiday shopping deals. One day and one day only, in-store shopping specials which start at 8:00 am on Saturday November 7. Grab a 46″ Panasonic Plasma HDTV for $788 or a Sony Blu-ray for $148 or even better a Xbox 360 Arcade Console with a $100 gift card. With that deal you can grab COD Modern Warfare 2 for free!! As usual, quantities are limited so good luck.
Editor note: There is no definitive shape, size or style of a game review, and this is proof. This piece from Derrick Hopkins not only reviews the game, but it also challenges it by comparing it to a very real, once-in-a-lifetime experience. Enjoy.

The Nurburgring is a 13-mile-long race track in located Nurburg, Germany. Nicknamed the “Green Hell”, it was built in 1927, has 72 corners, constant elevation changes and is considered one of the most dangerous race tracks ever constructed. And for about $15, anyone can drive on it.
A lot of games have included the Nurburgring on their list of locales to simulate. The latest is “Forza Motorsport 3,” which claims to be the most “realistic racing experience ever.” “Forza 3″ gives Xbox 360 owners the option of taking on the Nurburgring and dozens of other tracks in a collection of SUVs, exotic sportscars and purpose-built racers.
My brother and I had flown to Germany for the express purpose of driving on the legendary track. And we’d do it in a rented Mercedes C230 sedan.
