    @bowlisimo Malcolm McDowell somehow, through the sheer majesty of being, adds at least twelve awesome modules to whatever he’s doing. Even if it’s being opposite a fat, preachy William Shatner as “an evil doctor”. I must ask, what’re your thoughts on Wing Commander Prophecy? I got that in another strange game pack containing that, Blade Runner and the venerable Dune 2000. (Still doesn’t beat the bizarro three pack of Septerra Core, Gorky 17/Odium and Fly!)

    @angryjedi I’ve just been burning about online with the herd. It’s almost a shame by the very nature of the game that wanton drifting is a luxury more than a necessity. Some of the German players…good Lord…they’re running a razor-thin racing line and any squirrelling is almost a reason to hit backspace and “do ze whole sing again!” Terrific stuff, though.

    EDIT: @feenwager Whoa. I’ve never played a 3DO, but remember feeling strange and disconcerted seeing big rectangular boxes in the rental store that weren’t first run PSX titles or Saturn games. Was it an okay system?

    @unmanneddrone Funnily enough, I made the exact Daytona comparison in my mind earlier — particularly on the more “sensible” speed-type tracks. It felt like a Sega racer in the best possible way. I’m enjoying the new focus on drift-driving, too — reminds me of Ridge Racer. Looking forward to getting stuck in — it seems noticeably more difficult than past TM titles. Getting gold on the first track took a LOT of effort!

    @bluesforbuddha Don’t forget that The Last Story and Pandora’s Tower are set to come to Europe, too, I believe — so if you mod your Wii for Xenoblade and don’t destroy it you’ll be able to play those when the European editions come out, too. The Wii, she has plenty of life in her yet. I’ve actually been planning on modding my Wii at some point for the express purpose of playing Trauma Team, but haven’t had the guts to do it as yet.

    @angryjedi Trackmania 2 indeed. Very relaxing. New driving model feels like Burnout 2 meets Daytona with a dash of Mashed stickiness. ‘Tis lovely.

    EDIT: A few races into the now-retail version…breathtakingly fun!
