Mozilla Firefox has Tracking Protection that’s enabled by default in Private Browsing for mobile apps IIRC; it’ll block most ads. The desktop version has Tracking Protection enabled by default for all browsing. Read more

One mission, “End Product”, is awful and I hate it. The mission has you protecting a truck from waves of enemies. But the area lacks any good cover and enemies will spawn all around you and at different elevations, often hidden behind the truck you are defending. It sucks and I gave up halfway through because I’d Read more

In Cruis’n World, a racing game for the Nintendo 64, you can race other cars on the moon.

I’ve generally enjoyed the new Repo Work missions, given how car-centric they are. “Blow Up IV”, “Sasquashed” and “Do you even lift?” are probably my top three favorite Repo Work missions. I’m not too fond of “GTA Today II”, though; while it’s theoretically possible to do that mission solo, I haven’t been able to Read more

I get particularly annoyed by people who use the left turn lane at a stoplight as a passing lane. I’ll be in the next lane over, trying to go straight when the light turns green, and then have to brake when a driver in the left turn lane guns it and cuts in front of me. Read more

I like the exterior styling, but I’m surprised to see that there’s only one engine offered. It would be nice to see a hybrid/plug-in hybrid option, or maybe something like the XTS V-Sport’s twin-turbo LF3 V6.

Bomb Ball is much, much easier to play when you have a custom Arena War vehicle with mounted weapons. I use a ZR380 Future Shock that’s equipped with the optional lasers; it’s surprisingly easy to send bombs careening across the field by firing your lasers/machine guns at them. You can coax bombs into the opposing Read more

That makes sense, thanks. Regarding the ads - I’ve had Jalopnik and Kotaku whitelisted on my ad-blocker for a long time, but I’ve recently started seeing really sketchy ads on Kinja sites. After clicking on an article, I’ve had Google Chrome throw up those giant red pages about how I’m being taken to an unsafe site; Read more

Regarding your car reviews - is there a reason why you guys don’t use the slideshow feature that Kotaku, Gizmodo and The Onion use? I like the photos that you guys put at the ends of your reviews, but I’d prefer seeing them in slideshows as opposed to picture dumps. It’s more convenient to load Kinja slideshows, on Read more

I’d bring back the VF Commodore. I’d give it the HSV Senator Signature styling in place of what the Chevrolet SS used, the LT1 and LT4 V8s (with stickshift options), and Chevrolet Infotainment 3.

Well, that sucks. I went to the 2017 Detroit Auto Show and was really impressed by what Mercedes had on display. Read more

AFAIK, there are only two other USDM vehicles with USB Type-C ports, and both are from GM. The redesigned GMC Terrain has a Type-C port (though the redesigned Equinox doesn’t), and the refreshed 2018 Cadillac XTS also has one.

GM also introduced a 5.3L V8 eAssist version of the current-gen Silverado/Sierra 1500 back in 2016, albeit in a very limited run of 2WD-only units for California. I could swear that Jalopnik ran an article about it, but I can’t find it.

An 8-speed gearbox, huh? So Ford still isn’t offering any USDM vehicles with the transverse 9-speed that it jointly developed with GM? Read more

My Focus has the 5-speed manual, so I’ve never had to deal with the PowerShift DCT updates.
