Picked this one up. Really fun, great co-op. Downside with co-op is player in passenger seat of car can't do anything but look around, which is weak. But yeah, it's a fun game, and definetly enough to tide me over until March 14, when GOD OF FUCKING WAR 2 finally, FINALLY fucking comes the fuck out. FUCK!!! KRATOS!!!

Pretty fun game. Not great, but enjoyable. Target-seeking rockets rule.

I don't think the story is as strong but it's at least as good as Saint's Row. Different game though since this also has a ton of vertical exploration and I can imagine co-op would be pretty cool. I started playing yesterday and have probably logged 15 hours on it.

Hmmm...

As a game, it's not that solid. As a fun sandbox experience, it is great. If you play GTA style games to run around and blow shit up, you will enjoy it. The story is next to non-existent, butthe graphics are beautiful, the control is tight, the jumping is wicked, and the explosions are downright badass.

Forza doesn't come out until the middle of May, assuming it ships on time, and assuming you meant Forza 2. If you meant Forza 1, good luck finding it, it's pretty much not carried anywhere any more.

It's quite easy to find the original Forza in the used bins, at least in the North End. I figure that since it was bundled with the last few batches or Xbox consoles the used market got saturated with them like they did the Sega GT/JSRF bundle.

Bear in mind that there is some slowdown when running the original Forza on the 360, not enough to make it unplayable though.

I looked around downtown, and on the eastside, and didn't find it. I was jonesin' for it after I saw a badass car commercial where the camera was mounted on a car zipping around Nürburgring. It was in HD and I really wanted to drive on that track.

I guess I will just hold out for Forza 2. I loved the first one.

PGR 3 has the Nürburgring if you get jonesing too much. It's pretty cheap now as well and the platinum hits version comes with all the pay DLC the original release didn't.


Check out some of the Forza 2 previews from GDC today, some of the stuff they talked about made me salivate :)

Yeah...

I got kinda burned out on Gotham, and never got into the 3rd one. I liked Forza a lot better. I'll check out the preview.
