Quick catch up skim and didn't see anyone else mention it, so a quick PSA for the Need For Speed Flash sale: Shift 2 is also 75% off, I mention this because I got burned on the Summer sale buying Shift 1 because they didn't include Shift 2 with the rest of the NFS titles on the sale screen even though it is part of the flash sale. So yeah, if you are considering it NFS: Shift, just get Shift 2 Unleashed for the same price.
Also Hot Pursuit is actually a lot more fun than I expected it to be. Think of it as Burnout 4 or 5 or whatever number it left off with before going all sandboxy with Paradise and I think you'll have a good time with it. Well worth the $5 in my opinion.
Shift 2 is entertaining and a reasonably well done "sim" racer, but if you have a console and access to Forza 4 or Gran Turismo 5, it's pretty unnecessary in comparison. If you're PC only though, could do a lot worse than $5 for it.
