    TGS was great, but...

    ...they still haven't confirmed everything. Japanese release date: check. Dynamic weather: check. (an awesome check BTW) New videos: check. Rebuilt Laguna and Trial Mountain: check. How about the rest of the tracks and full car list? I'll give them a pass on the full car list. I certainly...

    How awesome would this be?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8T2mlMpkqUA&feature Considering Ferrari is in GT5, what are the odds that Fiorano is one of our tracks? For those who don't know: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiorano_Circuit I've raced it on the PC and it's a ton of fun. Not really a "race" track as much as it...

    So when GT5 comes out, what wil you do?

    With any luck, I'll be picking up my collectors edition at a midnight launch. My manager - not really my boss, but I report to him - anyway, he's one of my PS3 friends. I've already told him about November 2nd and told him I have "meetings" all day and won't be in. He asked me if he could...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVlcSyLFFEU Very nice. You even get a glimpse of the 908 cockpit. Check out the roadside cones that get knocked around and the new tire smoke and dust clouds.

    Do I need to finish Unchartered 1 first?

    I just picked up U2 and I borrowed U1 from a friend of mine about 2 weeks ago. I haven't finished it, in fact I'm only about 30 minutes into the game, but do I need to finish U1 before I boot up U2? I've got other games to keep me busy - I just took advantage of the Toys R Us buy 2 get 1 free...

    Just picked up IL-2 Sturmovik

    Great Game! I've finished the training missions and the first campaign mission, and let me say: outstanding flight-simulator And I mean simulator. Through training you're playing in "arcade" mode - easier flight dynamics, aiming help among other aids. In training, you can unlock "realistic"...

    Is anyone else tired of that Arkham Asylum banner at the top?

    Seriously, I understand the need for banner ads, but those damn snapping skeletons are now just annoying. Is it there on permanent ad status or am I seeing it because I clicked on it once? Note to self: never click on banner ads again.
