Don't know why I never played it but Game sack reminded me of it. I'm bored with GT5 and Hot Pursuit so hopefully this will keep my racing itch satisfied till NFS most wanted is released :p

I got that for PC from Amazon for $4.99 on sale just last week. It has to run through Origin though. I haven't played a Burnout since 3.

A Game Sack episode got me interested in buying it too.

If you've never played GRID you should go get it. It'll be cheap by now an dits one of the best racing games out there. Especially the legendary drifting mountain tracks from japan.

I got GRID with my pc a few years back. It has a few problems running on the i7, but I believe they've fixed it.

Love Burnout Paradise but I'm not a big fan of how you have to drive around the city and find races at red lights. I don't need an adventure just to start racing in my racing games I just want to race.

If you're running it through steam try and do the file verify option. Maybe one of them got corrupted in an update.

Bought Uncharted: Golden Abyss for VITA. Loving it so far, and the fine tuned aiming with motion control really works quite well.

It doesn't auto lock. You have to turn against the enemy and press L1 to aim, and then move the Vita to fine tune your aiming. Must be that you used the auto aim option or something..

*edit. Yeah i had auto aim turned off, but when i turned it on it locks on as you said. Better turn it off and use it like in this video. It functions great if you set up the direction of aiming with the stick first. Very nice, and much easier than just using the stick.

Uncharted GA, that's the only game I want on Vita. Not enough to justify a purchase.

Path of Exile pre-order / closed beta access. Really liking the socket system in this game. It reminds me of materia from FF7 in that you can come up with some deadly combinations.

Also, I like the community so far. I leave general chat on because it's generally informative. I see myself playing this until GW2 beta this weekend, and then afterwards until it or TL2 releases. Anyone that likes hack and slash and has $10 should get closed beta access.
