    I'm not amazingly interested in this, but my brother is a massive fan of the first game and has been waiting long enough for the sequel. Sucks that they have to pull this stupid retailer-exclusive DLC mumbo-jumbo though. I mean, I assume it's DLC, likely because it'll probably go on sale after the fact to appease the people who missed out. Opportunity costs or what? But it's all just icing on what I expect to be a particular fattening cake already, though. In a good way, obviously. Hey, and, didn't Justin say his name was going to be in this game once before? Or was that a joke? Should I bother looking out for it? =p

    Grid 2 does not look good at all, but I hope I am wrong when it releases.

    Not sure why everyone is so down on Grid 2, but I personally can't wait. I wasn't big on the first one, but Codies has come a long way since the beginning of the generation.

    Same here, the first Grid is one of my favourite racing games ever, and I play a lot of racing games. I'm only bummed about the lack of Destruction Derby races in Grid 2.
