This is a clean slate for everyone, including me. Sorry if I got angry before. Hope we can forgive and forget what happened previously. Keep it clean, keep it friendly, and we'll be good.

What's up with everyone for the time being?

Edit: This is my third time making the PGD Lounge thread. Next time, someone else will have the pleasure of creating one. Enjoy! :)

Well, so much for letting someone else have a crack at this. Oh well. Maybe next time, folks.

The more I'm playing Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, the more I hate the game. Just seems like its one of those games that everyone said was awesome back in the day and doesn't translate quite well now.

Not really. Just like to make sure others get a chance to make it so as not to place responsibility solely on one individual.

Still enjoying Dragon's Dogma. Mystic Knight is pretty fun, not sure what I'm going to switch too once I max this one out.. It will be nice to not see my cape clipping through my shield constantly. :P

Anyone into racers? I used to play racing games when I was younger like Burnout 2 and Burnout 3, Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, Need For Speed: Underground/Underground 2, etc but I stopped. Looking at some of the racing games this generation, it seems like Burnout Paradise, Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010) and Forza 4 are the top ones -- that new one coming out looks neat, so does Need For Speed: Most Wanted. Anyone know which are the best? I have PGR3, but I've barely played it lol.

I like racing games! :D Burnout Paradise and Hot Pursuit are two of my favorites from this gen. Wipeout HD is awesome. DiRT 3 is probably my favorite overall. The new Most Wanted looks fantastic as well. Criterion are great at what they do.

Love racers. Burnout 3 is probably my all-time favorite racing title since it was just absurd fun. And FAST. 200 mph w/boost really felt like 200mph in Takedown. I played a lot of NFS when I was younger, espcially Hot Pursuit 2 and Most Wanted which where my faves there. New Most Wanted looks cool, but Criterion are fantastic devs so that's not a surprise.

This gen, I'd go with Forza 4 and Burnout Paradise as my favorite racers, but I have enjoyed DiRT 3 and Criterion's Hot Pursuit very much. All of those are really good titles.

I am and oddly enough, I also stopped playing racers around that time. Need For Speed: Most Wanted is a good one. GT5: Prologue is out and those games have always been good. Motorstorm is good fun.

I'm currently tackling Hot Pursuit (2010) at the moment and can say that it's a blast so far. A nice mixture of difficulty and great level design. I'd say go for that and Burnout Paradise since it seems that you played Criterion's earlier works.

The E3 thing has been there since E3 week.

Anyway, don't think it's updated yet. No posts on the PlayStation Blog about it yet.

Don't do that, GT5 was a massive flop. Six years of waiting for a game where there's something like 100 Nissans and 12 Ferraris, where 80% of the cars don't have an interior view and look like they've come straight out of the PS2.

Anyway, if you are willing to wait, wait for the new NFS Most Wanted, or Forza Horizon. If you're not willing to wait, then get Forza 4 (sim), or DiRT 3 (arcade).

Takedown was a very good game, but Forza 4 is easily the best racer of the gen, IMO.

Right... cuz 7.4 million copies sold makes it a flop. :roll: Guess you're just more into arcade racers than driving simulators. The game isn't perfect but still love it.

I love both genres equally. When I said a flop, I meant (this probably wasn't obvious) the quality of the game just didn't meet many people's (including myself) expectations after we waited for the best part of a generation.

I don't think I've ever seen this in a videogame, but I love how the monsters react and move in Dragon's Dogma. The wolves, for example, can be frustrating when they jump back to avoid one of your sword swipes, but I enjoy the refreshing AI for a change.

That was one of the reasons I bought a Wii a long time ago - the VC had a great selection of classics to buy and play at anytime. Like Super Mario Kart. :D I still have memories of getting beaten by friends and family with that red shell, which we came to call it as "The Terminator" shell.

"No Mess", huh? Well today I was trying to clean up a mess I had and I've now accidentally cracked my Mario Galaxy 2 disc. Fell victim to some overturned objects. *sob*

... On the bright side, I did finish Forza 4's career event list today, and I've been playing since the release date in October.

At first I did'nt know what to really think about it, but now that I know that the physics are at least somewhat based on FM and the game itself is open world ala Burnout Paradise, I'll most likely get it. I think T10 and Playground are doing the right thing by introducing new things while still retaining alot of the stuff you expect from the main games.
