    Kinect is fucking pish and people who like it are:
    a) grannies
    b) children
    c) retards

    Seriously, I wish it would fuck off and die. angry

    Hopefully this will be free. It would be nice especially because I looked forward to it when they announced the free one but I thought it was terrible when playing on the kinect game. However, I bet it will not be free.

    I don't think they'll ever bring back 1v100, it's not even on tv anymore is it?
    IIRC, the show was canceled before the game's debut on Xbox Live.

    No it was still on TV when the game debuted. It was canceled before the game though. It was actually licensing reasons that canceled the game, which makes sense when the game isn't even on TV anymore. The original plan was to have a second season, with it's own achievements (similar to Full House Poker). What most people don't realize is that, while they want it to come back so they could finish it, the next season was already confirmed to have achievements of it's own, and the season 1 achievements would be unobtainable.

    I love games that allow you to use your avatar. I'll have to check this out!

    To clarify: the game was never gonna be "free", just "f2p".
    Which means to unlock achievements (and have more than 1 track/1 car) you would need to buy tracks and cars individually.
    Paying 800 points for everything upfront is much, much better and a lot cheaper in the long run.
    It is amazing how many people forgot that this was going to be a micro transaction game from the start.

    Not really sure what to say to this actually. Well I didn't see it coming, that's for sure!
    I like what I like and I don't what I don't.

    That is wrong. When first announced it was to be totally free so that they could push there avatar thing,items would be unlocked via the game and buy able in the dash board. You could 100% the game without having to pay a penny just like dash of destruction, crash course, etc

    • Race your friends in local 4-player split-screen or compete with up to 8 on Xbox LIVE.

    Please not another racing game that lacks the function to bring local split-screen players with you online (as "Guests"). It seems a lot of developers don't know the 360 can actually do this, it would be hilarious if even Microsoft Studios forgot.
