gt5 is very annoying. the menus, waiting times, yawn yawn yawn. the racing itself seems fine but the game is so limiting unless you spend loads of time on it, which i am not prepared in the slightest to do. do i really have to race crappy cars for ten hours before i can race good ones in the campaign mode. jeez.
That the game of GT5, you got to learn to drive and win, and also pick the right cars and parts for the right price, it's not just about the supercars.

I played it for about 5-6 hours on Sunday and I got a couple hundred grand in the bank and some souped up small cars and saloons that'll win the easier races.

It's having to do the driving license that's the real pain, haven't started on that yet.

That aside, the times between screen does seem slower than previous versions, and also more confusing

Sorry KRLOCK,
You're a regular contributor to this thread but surely you know that all the Gran Tourismo series are like this.
Didn't you own a PS2 for the previous games in the series?
I felt the same yawn factor about GT4. Will still buy it probably.
Totally and tonally correct. I am my own worst enemy... Same with the grand theft autos and halo which make me motion sick but i still buy em!

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

For 2 players borderlands is one of the best games around.

Also finished assassins creed 2, very good, lots of fun but frustrating at times

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

If I buy a PS3 game from UK AMAZON and let it shipped to here (switzerland), will it work? multiplayer...etc? Will it be a problem?

The PS3 was bought in Switzerland.

Thanks.

Yep, no problems with amazon UK, and I bought plenty from there, except for one isolated glitch.

I got Fallout from the UK, but bought and downloaded an add on pack from the swiss online store and they never worked together, apart from that, never had troubles with updates or online gaming.

It takes ages, and it's still seems slow after, I'd hate to see it without the install. Still find it hugely enjoyable.

Really? The packs for MW2 worked. US disc, swiss packs.

On a sidenote, the stores are different depending countries, I noticed this with my US and CH accounts.

It was only fallout as far as I could tell, I got downloadable content for other games without any problems.

I watched this series sometime ago. Actually this one, and Psycho Girlfriend, Racism in America, etc etc...

I found them incredibly funny.
But the chick and the lead guy use too much expletives IMHO...only n00bs do that

And btw, check out "Halo:Reach Fails of the Weak" series on Rooster Teeth...
But wait, you are a PS3 gamer...awwwwwwww...

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

This is an amusing vid of a Troll taking advantage of a spawn glitch on Team Fortress. Get's funnier as the vid continues.
