Heads up. This game, both collectors and regular edition, is $29.99 at Eb Games (in Canada, or at least Ontario) ... I think just for today. I went to EB, not knowing about the deal... and scored the collectors edition for $29.99 today. 8O That's $60 off the regular price! Played it a bit and am lik...

Hey I could do this. I'll be out of town December 25 - Jan 2, but if we can do the first race before Dec 25 (I'm available any time except Dec 18 and after christmas) I could do it. Let me know.

Generally after 9pm Eastern time for me.

Not a musician, but just curious... For those of you who are playing live shows, have you seen any evidence of the ASCAP crackdown on live covers? Any joints pulling the plug? NAH, they just pay next to nothing these days. 4 set shows at the bars (north of Toronto... newmarket, Keswick,holland land...

OT: Musicians (or just hacks) update

I know a few of us around here play some music (or noise... ) Wondering what's going on with all of you. Grant? Terry? JackB? Scoop? Anyone else? What have you been up to?

Me and two friends (and three six-packs) played through the whole thing last night. It was epic... so much fun. Six packs! Where do you guys find the time to maintain that physique?

Is there a way to practice before a race? Without going all the way back out to free play? Right now I go into an event, check the track and if I don't know it I go all the way back out to free play and find that track to practice on. Did I miss something obvious in the race day menu?

It's definitely in stores today. Was getting a movie for my kids (both are home sick today) so I rented it (on gamepass) from blockbuster this morning, and they had tons for sale.

With any luck, assuming I don't also get sick, I'll be firing it up tonight.

So what's the word on this one--in stores tomorrow? Pretty sure the stores have their copies already. It (many many copies) was in the glass behind the counter at EB Games yesterday. I said to the guy "are you just taunting me with those or can I buy one?" He laughed and apologized for taunting me.

I normalize volume on all tracks, too, which is equivalent to saying I reduce volume on all tracks. :) I can't stand the trend this decade of CD tracks being so damn "hot." The amount of clipping and lack of subtlety are rampant at such ridiculous dB levels. MP3Gain is a vital tool in my MP3 worksh...

I have it out right now on the Blockbuster gamepass. I played the SP mode for about an hour last night and had a blast. Yeah it's no sim... but it IS fun. I only played a few events on the middle difficulty level with damage set to FULL, setups OFF. Driving was fun, AI racers were reasonable.

I've been burned out on console/PC games for a while I think. I keep trying out the "next best thing" (Fallout 3, MLB 09, Killzone, Resident Evil) and they're just not grabbing me.
