A smashy smashy racing game? Must check out the demo. Hope it's better than Blur and that other one that came out at the same time.

Ooh, generic racing game... lol

I got around to playing Harry Potter LEGO 1-4 Years, pretty cool. Definitely the best LEGO one so far, levels are really varied with a lot of replayability.

I think I'll put it on ice for a while now, don't want to overdo LEGO with Batman 2 coming out next month - which looks epic with all Justice League characters and an Open World map.

Will get the LOTRWITN game soon, price keeps coming down, waiting for it to get to $30 and then I'll get it.

It's already $33.75 on ebay. You're really waiting just to save $3.75?

Well, I fucking suck at RR:U Placed 4th once on the first track, but generally I'm in the last 3 places. Mad racing skillz yo!

I've unlocked a couple more tracks (you still get points if you blow) so will keep chipping away. Hopefully unlocking a few different cars will help...doubt it, though

Drifting just feels...hard. I dunno. It's not as easy as it used to be in RR, that's for sure.

Well, it's currently $28 at GAME (yay Morph!) on PS3 but I'm waiting for the 360 version to drop.
Put that in your NIB pipe from eBay and smoke it.

Popped Juiced2 - Hot Import Nights in last night, forgot how awesomely bad it is. Its even more Fast and Furious than all the Fast and Furious movies combined. I think I had a chained drift going for 12 minutes at one point. This might entertain me for a week or so.

RR Unbounded isn't a Ridge Racer game. It's basically the latest in Bugbear's Flatout series with Ridge Racer branding. I'm wholly underwhelmed but keep playing it. 1st person camera is broken, drifting feels nothing like Ridge Racer and the damage mechanic is ok while you aren't trying to smash through the corner of a building that should smash.

It's still fun. Edge were wrong on this one though.

MP could be good... but it's got nothing on Blur.

Yeah, I'm doubting the 9 now. Still, hoping I'll take to it more once I get the hang of drifting. I like the power meter and smashable shit. Don't think it's gonna replace Split/Second for me, though

MEEEEE TOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Why endanger my life when I can pay someone else to do it for me?

...another translation: Why take control over 2 ton of steel and be responsible for my own safety when I can outsource it to someone else?

Hmm. Might have to rethink that one.

Why be the designated driver ever? I am NEVER the desi.

To be honest though, not many of my mates are racers. There's a few, but I'm the only guy in my bunch of IRL mates who loves that shit.

Drives me fucking bananas trying to watch them play. I guess some people just have a spatial awareness for that sort of thing and some people don't.

Another pet peeve: 3rd person camera view. FFS, how do people drive in that view at all? Just feels like the controls are about 6 seconds behind actual input. :nerdrage:

Depending on the game, I switch between 3rd person and bumper cam...

For an arcade racer, where drifting and getting sideways are important, 3rd person for sure, so you can see your back end... for something that is F1 like, and requires tight lines to make up ten tenths, then bumper/in car.

For Forza, I switched between both. Think I used mainly 3rd person though, as once you know your lines, its easy to hit them.

1st person all the way for me in Forza. Some racing games the camera sits way too low, so I'll switch to 3rd.
Burnout in 1st person is fucking insanity. The only racing games I have played that are truly great in 3rd person are Mario Kart and San Francisco Rush.

Getting Xbox Live withdrawals bad.

Slowwwwwly getting the hang of drifting in RRU. It's so fucking touchy, though! Still haven't won a domination race but I nabbed a pure race last night (speed only, not destruction) and also a time attack. Feel a *little* less shit at the game now...but not by much

I am having severe gaming ADHD right now. Had two nights at home by myself with a bag of weed on the weekend and I just couldn't settle on a fucking game. Couldn't be arsed finishing the Harley Quinn DLC, couldn't be arsed with the challenge rooms, couldn't be arsed with Ridge Racer, couldn't be arsed with Pinball, or Fez, or Blood Forge. In a fit of sado-masochism, I put in Dark Souls while horribly ripped...it ended as you'd expect.

I need a good "project" game that's not going to test me too much. Which is why I bought AC Brotherhood yesterday in the 2 for $40 JB sale. Grabbed Rage, too. Quite fancy that.

The End.

I'm playing Mortal Kombat and Silent Hill HD 2 & 3 at the mo.

MK is really good, so glad they took it back to 2D, the levels are really cool as are the characters. It's still a bit cartoony looking and I would've preferred more realistic blood splattering everywhere, but the gameplay is sweet. It surprising how strong these fighters are yet how seemingly weak their torsos are.


Returning to SH has been fun. Finished 2 the other day and starting on 3. Forgot how fucked up these games are. The combat and controls are pretty awful but it's all about the atmosphere and settings and story and they all deliver. It's just about the nostalgia for me really so I'm just playing easy combat and normal puzzles so I don't die and have to replay too much.

dont get me wrong. its certainly enthralling to read about you guys organising to go for a beer or reminiscing about that time you lent a video game to each other. but is there any particular reason why you two fly-boys have decided to live out your bromance online through this thread instead of say email, facebook, PMs, text, or phone calls?
