Burnout Paradise is awesome. I didn't think I'd like the open world style, but I loved it. You should get it for sure. You too lowfat.

I'll be getting ME2 and Dragon Age over the weekend. I might go for Mirror's Edge or Dead Space tomorrow depending on pricing.

They've done these kinds of sale events for other publishers too.

Agreed. It is an AWESOME game. I would get it but I have no credit cards. UGH!

How's online for Burnout? I think I have the PSP and PS2 version of the game, but I didn't really play it. I got way too many games to play as it is already...

Apparently I don't have the game... Must be another version of Burnout I got.

You just enable it from the in game menu and other real players will be in your city so you can race against them and such. I never did too much messing around with it though.

Dead Space has been $4.99 @ NCIX for the past month.

I meant the gameplay, like is it fun, terrible, etc.

Thanks for the heads-up! I was thinking of picking up one of the NFS classics, Porsche Unleashed, but that isn't even offered. Shame. It was their finest NFS.
