Dude...When my 360 took a shit, I put TT in the PS2 and tried to play it. It's horrible in comparison. I never played the MotoGP06 demo so I can't comment on that. If you spend the time with the game and build up your bike and gain achievement credits, it's a blast. Not to mention the online racing is incredible.

Finished resistance last month. currently playing motorstorm, fun but gets tiring after an hour, especially with all the metal music blaring in 5.1. nirvana's "breed" still is the schizzo though. for the next game considering fear or def jam icon. any suggestions?

Then again it was the first motorcycle game I ever played and I horribly sucked ass. I also thought Tourist Trophy sucked at first, but eventually I learned the dynamics of riding a motorcycle and it got more fun, haven't tried out MotoGP since.

What turned me off is that the only bikes available were a Ducati monster (not a fan of naked bikes) and I think a Honda RC51 IIRC. Needless to say I didn't know crap about bikes back then and I couldn't handle the high CC bikes. As you said, it was a steep learning curve I guess.

So in MotoGP06 you can build up your bike with modifications kind of like Forza/GT? All you can do in TT is add a slip-on exhaust and tune the settings, which I can do in GT and Forza, but I'm lost with these bike settings. I'm not too into all-out racing bikes... I'm the guy who likes to play Forza and plop a K20 in a Civic.

Yeah COD3 was OK, but it really wasn't that fun to me on quite a few levels since it was so tedious. I beat it on one of my non XBOX Live gamer tags, and then had to beat it again because I wanted my acheivements to show on my XBL tag. I'll probably never play it again.

Eh, why not. We talk often enough about what we're putzing around on our consoles.


And oh, GT5...but, I'm on a recess while I try to save the world in FF4.

Picked up Dirt 3 yesterday. The graphics are some of the best I've seen on an "arcade" style racer. Sound is amazing too. The game is a lot of fun but I found it pretty difficult to get used to the steering dynamics after playing Forza 3 for the past couple of years. I got the hang of it after about 30 minutes but the game remains challenging in a good way.

Been playing stuff related to PS Plus and the "free" games Sony gave out. Played Streets of Rage 2 for a few days since it was a free PS Plus download. It's amazing what we used to think were good graphics. Been playing Dead Nation for the last week or so. I've played Wipeout HD a few times...it's better than I initially thought, but still a racing game, so it doesn't have long-term appeal for me. In fact, I think I'm already over it. I went ahead and deleted inFamous and LBP. I realized I have so little interest in these games that I don't even care about trophy whoring them. I also (finally) started wrapping up my platinum trophy for Wheelman yesterday; should have it today (only needed three trophies, and got two yesterday).

Bayonetta was a lot of fun. Awesome graphics and random button mashing FTW.

I finished LA Noire which was a very intriguing and involving story. I liked it better than Heavy Rain. Sometimes it's nice to play something besides a driving game or FPS. I'm on my last level of FEAR 3. SOS hiding behind counters, hitting the slo motion button, going for head shots. I got to drive a Mech in a couple different levels but the fricking thing is so bulky and hard to coordinate. There's so much shaking in the game I get a headache.

Good to know Bayonetta was a good game. I picked it up for $10 at the Sony store recently.

Yeah, Bayonetta was a great game, although the random button mashing becomes deliberate patterns in later levels. I'm looking at Castlevania: LoS next.

I remember the combo to turn Bayonetta into a giant boot made out of her hair, that was kickass (pun intended).

I only rank that as one of my favorite fighting games...of all time!


Great game. I remember scoring it for next to nothing when the Dreamcast was being sold for peanuts.

If I pulled off any of the hair tricks (kick/boot, punch, etc.), it was by accident. I pretty much just used a handful of regular combos that I found to be particularly effective, maybe five or six out of the entire move list. I loved the finishing moves, and did those every chance I got; the one where she stuffed them into an iron maiden was great.

Hey man how's Mortal Kombat? Got sick reviews but will it be fun if I don't game online?

I finished NFS Hot Pursuit, to be honest I think I had more fun with that then the 2 months of my life I squandered on GT5. SpecB race?! Suite! I'm going to go watch some moss grow in my backyard or trim my pubes

I had the boot and punch dialed. I totally loved the Japanese graphics/style of the game with the Pachinko sound effects and the boss battles with the weird baby-faced floating giants.

I play mostly online....but Mortal Kombat story (offline) is awesome and the challenges are cool but online makes it for me. Without online its still a good game but with it I call it great. Very fatality friendly...only downfall online is the servers kinda suck and sometimes gets desyncronized and at times takes 1-3 mins to find a match.

I feel you on GT5...I gave up myself. I also finished nfs but after I bought the lambo/porshe packs I play online.
