The Mole: Making it Rain

Grab an umbrella - After scrolling through some recently released screenshots of "PGR4" (see above) I had to look out my window to make sure I didn't need a raincoat. The new Dynamic Weather System is stunning and can really effect the outcome of a race. Running into an unexpected rain storm or snow flurries during the middle of a race (and dealing with the accompanying change in physics) should be a blast.
"PGR4" also has a few other new features. The new career mode will offer gamers a more in-depth experience as fans will now be more actively involved. Drivers have their own fanbases that cheer them on and react to the action during the race. The Kudos system has also been revised. Drivers will now pump their fists when blowing by an opponent and in general display more emotion. A complete vehicle list hasn't been released yet but here are a few cars that have been confirmed.
2004 TVR Sagaris
1965 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray
2005 Vanwall GPR V12
1993 Toyota Supra Turbo
2005 Gumpert Apollo
1997 Panoz GTR-1 Coupe
2006 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano
1957 Maserati 250F
I wanna rock - Sony "Guitar Hero 2" owners will be getting some love this summer with "Guitar Hero 2 Rocks the 80's," new content exclusively for the PS2 version of the game. Gamers will have access to new venues, new characters, new guitars and 30 new songs from one of my favorite music era's - the 1980's. Check out a few of the songs confirmed for "Rock the 80's" below, and I dare you not to think of "The 40 Year Old Virgin" when you see the last one.
I Wanna Rock (by Twisted Sister)
I Ran (by Flock of Seagulls)
Round and Round (as made famous by Ratt)
I Want Candy (as made famous by Bow Wow Wow)
Metal Health (as made famous by Quiet Riot)
Holy Diver (as made famous by Dio)
Heat Of The Moment (as made famous by Asia)
Etc... - Sega announced "Condemned 2: Bloodshot", the sequel to the popular psychological terror, first person action thriller "Condemned: Criminal Origins" will be released in early 2008 on both the Xbox 360 and PS3...the "Forza Motorsport 2" demo is available on Xbox Live..."Double Dragon" was released for XBLA this week...I was planning on running my "Spider-Man 3" review today but haven't had enough time with the game. Look for that early next week...AND of this posting the "Halo 3" beta is only 3 days, 17 hours and 55 minutes away. Not that I check the counter at 4-5 times a day or anything.

Any word on a Halo 3 demo being available for download any time? I'm not buying Crackdown just for the Beta.
Even though I should...cuz everyone that does will have an advantage once the game comes out.

No and to be honest I'd surprised if there is one. I don't think Bungie is too concerned about drumming up interest for the game but if I hear anything I'll let you know.

Hello and glad to find your blog. I’ve recently added some pages on all the important TVR models to my website and I invite you to check it out. I’ve posted some nice TVR Tamora wallpapers, quite a few TVR Sagaris pictures and also a cool picture of the TVR Griffith. Hope you like them!
