I felt that the acting in the FMV was so cheesy, lampooning it was unnecessary, and weirdly sorts of ruins it.

The original FMV was boring as hell. The MST3K approach was the right thing to do.

Yeah, I admit to resetting the game a few times before figuring out this is how the video is *supposed* to be. I seriously thought I kept accessing a hidden option by accident.

Vance is right, the Mystery Science Theater route they chose was really the only way to go. (Of course it helps if you've seen any of them to reference) The fmv was the best part of the game for me and, like 3DOKid said, the cheat codes (the game is too chaotic!)

That being said, Forza must really suck if you are playing OWI over it.

It's not that Forza is bad so much as it's the ultimate in mediocrity. If you bought three Nascar games from consecutive years, it's solid enough... but the car pornographer in me needs more in the details.

I looked forward to 3 games this year. Uncharted 2. Which is almost worth buying a PS3 for. Operation Flashpoint. (Shooting commies never grows old) and GT5.

Please god, I beg you, make GT5 awesome.

I have heard that there is an inhuman amount of cars, but what with them claiming it takes at least two months to finish a single one, I don't know... as long as they have a robust career mode, they left that completely out of the PSP game which pissed me off...

I have three demands to make me love this; any year Toyota Starlet, a 64-66 Mustang, and a 67 Shelby Cobra.

Playing Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker now. And the new God of War game is about to come out.

And despite the Nintendo fanboys chanting that the UMD format was dead, they're still releasing those, too. Not that I like them, but it's kinda funny.

oooh, oooh, woman. Oh, how I would ban you. If i dared... oh yes.

Yes. Yes they do. The PSP saved my sanity. What fragments of it still exist. I bought a super-long-life battery for mine just before the 10 hour flight to america. and watched every episode of Married With Children Series 07. The PSP is almost too perfect.
