Didn't they have wrestling on it for awhile

It's becoming more and more of that paranormal crap and less sci fi series.

That's why it's SyFy not Sci Fi.

You like Forza? I was thinking of getting it, but not sure if it kicked ass or not.

When I started playing, it was a similar story. I would be lucky to get a kill in. Eventually I got to where I would get a positive kill ratio most of the time, but now that I haven't played in 4 or 5 months I'm guessing I'd have to start over

Forza 3 is awesome, and you should be able to get it used for a reasonable price. It's so much fun, especially with a steering wheel.

There are a lot of add on car and track packs, all sorts of odd cars show up in the car packs, I even have a 71 AMC AMX Javelin. Well, two of them, one stock and one painted in the red/white/blue donahue colors, with about $300,000 game dollars spent on it.....it almost works as well as a real modern high performance car, but I don't have the suspension quite right yet.

Forza 4 comes out in the fall, I expect it to be mind-blowing.

There are a couple different versions of the game out there....one does not give you the Javelin, Lancia 037, Cuda'...and a bunch of others. Be sure you get the correct one. I had the game from day one and had to buy it again to get those cars...it was $25 at game stop.....I think they call it the Ultimate pack or something like that.

But yes it is by far the best racing game for a console.

I wasn't aware you could get a version of the game with the car and track packs, I've just bought the ones I've wanted on xbox live. That sounds like the way to go.

Awesome! In about a week or so he will be making you look like the n00b.

On another note, Socom 4 launches in a few days and I won't be buying it. Zipper wiped the slate and started fresh, totally ruining the gameplay. All of the good old socom elements are gone.
