I liked the Kinect stuff for Tiger in the demo, but I doubt I'll use it for long.  Still, I may pick it up anyway, since I'm always a sucker for it and then never play it.

Tiger Woods, although I apparently ordered it before release day delivery was available, so I should get it sometime in early April.   icon_neutral

I might be getting Ridge Racer: Unbounded, based on impressions/reviews.  I love Bugbear, but generally dislike Ridge Racer, so I have to see which side wins out.  slywink

IGN just gave TW13 a 6.5/10, but this quote tells me I'm OUT:

Quote
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 restricts access to 20 of its 36 courses. Players can rent one round on a locked course for 6000 Coins, the earnings of about 10 rounds at 18 holes, each of which takes about 20 minutes. For those who can't spend the inordinate amount of time required to borrow one round of golf, EA presents the option to pay for Coins. Rather than selling the audience iconic places like Banff Springs, it's made it more expensive than ever – and it's temporary.
 
Completing "Gold Mastery" tasks is the only way to open a course forever. The challenges are not only extremely difficult and time consuming -- sinking five Eagles, hitting the green in regulation 80 times, etc. -- but must be completed on each course players hope to own. Tiger 13 golfers need to pay dozens if their hours and/or dollars to spend additional time to possibly access a course indefinitely.
 
EA is well within its right to restrict access to as much optional content as it pleases, but Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 features an exploitative add-on system which displays complete contempt for its audience.

I dropped the extra 10 for the Collector's edition.  The wiki page has a breakdown in what courses are included where. 

There are 16 courses listed on the standard disc, 22 with the Collectors Edition (Augusta National Par 3, Oakmont, PGA National Champion Course, Pinehurst No. 2, The Old White TPC, Whistling Straits, Straits Course), with 11 DLC only courses.

Three are listed as retailer-specific preorder only.

I never bought any of the DLC courses last year and got my enjoyment out of the game.  I don't expect I'll be worried about spending real money on spacebux this year either.

Hey! That's not entirely fair, blaming EA.

This is TIGER WOODS we're talking about... that man has dedicated his life to screwing as many people as possible - getting EA to help out is par for the course!!

South Park Tenoman's Revenge is out on XBLA today for 800 points,i just played the trial,it's a typical platform,but i liked it and was laughing

Usually for 4 players and it seems each player has a special power,as i played on my own as Cartman it told me that as Kenny i can do a super jump,they should of done it like SEGA's Psycho Fox where you could change characters to do different powers if playing on your own
