Ugh good GOD is that livery hideous.

I like that the baby blue is gone. Anyway, it's not as bad as Honda's.

Edit: Yeah it is ugly in game, I don't remember seeing blue in the race last weekend, guess I was wrong about the it going away.

Edit 2: Batracer got the colors wrong, just looked at pics, its a dark blue now.

I got me a DS copy! So many games.....

I find myself messing up moves quite a bit due to the cramped space. I think they could have done something differently to make it easier to move things around. Also, it seems that the monsters level with you. Is that correct?

Where did you get it from? A B&M store?

I've been unable to confirm that the game has even been shipped to my store, via overnight or ground. Given the fact that I specifically requested the title and supposedly had over half a dozen copies earmarked for my store, it could be that it hasn't shipped to any GS/EB stores yet.

Hmm, well if they don't have it tomorrow I will just order online. Sucks because I want to play more, but I am done with the demo.

Thanks for the info Misguided.

In, would like Ferrari, just because they're my favorite team.

I didn't have a teammate as Ferrari in our OO game, is it going to be a problem passing car info when I can only access the game in the evening? Unless you have Kool Tools you have to email car settings, right?
2647  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: I will never eat Indian food again. on: March 21, 2007, 08:32:38 PM

Quote from: Kobra on March 21, 2007, 04:24:49 PM

I haven't ever tried Indian food, but man do people talk about it a lot.  We got a ton of well rated indian joints around here, I should try it I guess. I love Curry/Turmeric.

Whats a good Indian dish for a "Noob" to indian food to try that isn't too obnoxious?

Just for your info, Indian food isn't made with curry powder, thats for Chinese food or really bad Indian curries. Most indian curries are made of cumin, coriander, ground chilies and then an assortment of other spices such as turmeric or cardamoms. Also large amounts of onions are used (the sauce is made of up of minced onions in almost every curry).

For a newbie get something like a Dopiaza (means double onion), rogan josh (spiced lamb in a tomato sauce), or tika masala (grilled chicken in a curry sauce). Almost all Indian places in the states will make it as hot or as mild as you want. You can get Vindaloo (meat with potatoes) which is popular but it and Madras are supposed to be hot. Saag is meat with spinach and also great. If you don't like spicy, go with buttered chicken, tandoori, korai, or tika (tandoori and tika are not curries but grilled meats). No matter what you have, get some naan to mop up the sauce. Personally I never order tandoori as a main, it's always a starter.

Stay from buffets unless a lot of Indians eat there. I complained at one place because the food was so tasteless and they told me they had to dumb it down for American tastes. "American's don't like spicy" he told me. Also in my experience stay away from an Indian restaurant that has beef on the menu but not lamb. Indians use lamb, not beef.

I grew up on English Indian food, probably the best place to get Indian in the world. smile I heard the curries we get in the West are quite different than anything you will see in India (but I guess that goes with all ethnic food). Also if anyone is interested in some good curry recipes, go to The Curry House, I make this guys recipes about twice a week and I have never found better home made recipes that are as good as the restaurants.

Quote from: Ridah on March 21, 2007, 07:58:39 PM

I don't think anyone seriously expected the 360 to perform well in Japan. Even if it had more games like Blue Dragon being released on a regular basis, the Japanese obviously prefer their own shit whether it's better or not.

I just don't think that is true. Japanese gaming tastes are vastly different than North Americas, and neither Xbox had many of those kind of games out. When Blue Dragon came out it did sell systems over there, they just need more of those kind of games more often if they want to do well.

Bah, why did I bother trying to get this at a b&m store at lunch.  They were just finishing unpacking the DS/GBA boxes that arrived, and "Puzzle Quest?" was only good for blank stares.

Hehe that's what I am scared of. My local EB has never offered to go through boxes for me, they always tell me to come back, so I will wait an hour or two more before I head down there. I wonder if Target will carry it, they seem to be quite good for new releases.

I know gamespot typically score games lower than everywhere else, but 7.9 is kinda shocking

Yeah they gave Crackdown something like a 7.9 too, under rated I think. I really think you need to read Gamespots reviews to get a true feel for whether the game is for you and not go off the rating too much.

I will be buying Motorstorm as soon as I get a PS3. They have a few in stock around town here, and everytime I see one, I have to remind myself to wait. smile

Yeah, cause one 7.9 > all the other 8's, 9's and 10's this game has recieved.   Roll Eyes

To be fair, the game has an 85% on Gamerankings after 14 reviews, so it wasn't the only 7.9. Anyway IMHO Gamespot is much more reuputable than IGN.
2660  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: I am now officially done with Gamestop on: March 02, 2007, 05:39:10 AM
One of the local EB employees was bragging to a co-worker how he beat Crackdown a week before it came out. Yet another reason I won't go there, I am not paying full price for a used game. He wants to play, it take home a used copy when they get one.

Considering that Ron can do things like host the C&C demo (1.2GB or so) without any issue, in addition to all the movies that pop up on the front page from time to time, bandwith is the least of his concerns. biggrin

I wouldn't buy one myself, Blu-ray/HD-DVD are both 1080p, why buy a TV that 3-4 years from now won't be able to support the mainstream resolution? Especially since the PS3, and eventually 360 games will be 1080p. Pay a little more and get a TV that will support the new technology in my book.

I must not be good because I find it kinda tough on default  crybaby

How far into it are you?  When I started out it was a lot more difficult than it should've been because I hadn't yet realized the importance of taking cover, and the way that your armor recharges if you lay low for a few seconds.  Once I got that concept down, the boss assaults became much more strategic (and doable).

I prefer it on the default difficulty just because I like being an unstoppable badass and taking everyone and everything out with my bare hands. I should get driving xp for kicking a truck into a bunch of thugs, killing them.

+1, on easiest it's fun and not frustrating. I still die on occasion, usually from multiple grenades at once. I do wish, once I cleaned something out, that new thugs wouldn't keep appearing. I was trying to find the switches for a particular boss, and the amount of baddies that kept coming in was getting irritating.

Well it does unfortunately sound like a rental for me since you guys are saying 8-10 hours playtime.

It depends on how driven you are. I have probably 5-6 hours in, and I only cleared out the first gang so far. I have been driving around, exploring, and working on stats. Been having fun just doing that myself.

I guess it is just human nature to want to see things fall from grace, especially things that you can't have or afford or whatever the reason is.

Bit of a stretch, don't you think?  Poking fun at Sony for some of it's ridiculous marketing and PR gaffes has nothing to do with whether or not people can afford the system. 

Sorry, but nearly everyone that pokes fun at the PS3 or says they are not getting one, ends with saying I can't spend $500 on it or it's too much or something along those lines. I don't see how $500 is all that much more than the $400 that the 360 costs and you get a lot more with it. I mean, if you can afford the 360, the extra $100 isn't going to break the bank, is it?


Let me put it another way, I can't afford $500 or $600 for a system that looks pretty bland so far. I will get one down the road, but right now, not one game excites me enough to get one at that price.
