At this rate, I can't see any of my coupons becoming useful or even approaching Christmas sale prices. Except gemini rue 50% off, but that's only because it was never on daily deal to begin with...

Looks interesting, anyone played it? I'm not sure if it's good enough to pay more for it than I did for GRID.

There is a demo on Steam for it. Haven't heard anything about it personally.

Ok so here's my mini review after 15 minutes of playing the demo:

Controls are 100% arcadey, I never used the brake for cornering. Only has 3 game modes: race, lap knockout and score...none of them seemed particularly fun to me. Also, I couldn't find a MP game to join and try it.
My Xbox360 pad was properly detected and buttons were mapped (though not labeled), force feedback is abused, I didn't bother trying to disable it though as I played for such a short time.

There's about 15 available cars, graphics are lackluster. They look sharp but that's about it, almost no detail at all, backgrounds are super bland.

I installed the demo, played for 15 minutes then uninstalled it.

Verdict: this is worth at most $2.50, probably not even that to most of you, so skip it or play the demo yourselves.

This is what kills it for me. I've been learning to appreciate having multiplayer in all of my racing games, as it's always more fun when there's other people playing with you. Oh well. Looks like a fun game, but I'll wait until it's cheaper.

I'm disappointed with the lack of people to play with with F1 2011, and that's < 6 months old.

Front mission evolved is -66% only, apparently it was -75% back in august 2011 :/

Bought Dead space 2, totally worth the $5.
