Gran Turismo HD First Impressions (PS3)

Eurogamer has posted their first impressions of Gran Turismo HD.
"Purring along at 60 frames per second, Gran Turismo HD swept those immensely impressive old-days aerial shots of the Grand Canyon background into real-time, and in the process demonstrated that Polyphony was already in pole position in some senses - but perhaps without the hardware behind the screen to match the hardware on it. That rally track also spoke of much livelier trackside detail than we've seen even in next-gen racers like PGR3. A feast of flashbulbs, the Grand Canyon had large volumes of PS2-style spectators milling around, shuffling off-track just as the race got to them and a good range of crowd movement, including folks simply wandering back and forth between corners, to add a bit of variety. It is just the backdrop to the race, but the simple steps taken here bade well and put PGR3's well-intentioned but ultimately lifeless spectators to shame."


Race Driver 2006 Heads To Stores (PSP)

PSX Extreme has the scoop.
"Codemasters has sent word that Race Driver 2006 has shipped for the PSP and will soon be in stores, patiently sitting on store shelves waiting for you to take it home. The game features more than 60 different racing circuits and 50 vehicles."

I could give a laundry list of great lines/one-liners in movies....

However, my favorite movie monologue is...

"Ray, people will come Ray. They'll come to Iowa for reasons they can't even fathom. They'll turn up your driveway not knowing for sure why they're doing it. They'll arrive at your door as innocent as children, longing for the past. Of course, we won't mind if you look around, you'll say. It's only $20 per person. They'll pass over the money without even thinking about it: for it is money they have and peace they lack. And they'll walk out to the bleachers; sit in shirtsleeves on a perfect afternoon. They'll find they have reserved seats somewhere along one of the baselines, where they sat when they were children and cheered their heroes. And they'll watch the game and it'll be as if they dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick they'll have to brush them away from their faces. People will come Ray. The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come."

good choice there Clay... that is one of my favs too...

for another, I would say:

Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Whose gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to.

QOTD - Pretty much any quote from the following movie, but this was one of the clean ones.

"Do you know how fast you were going back there? "
"Umm... 65? "
"63."
"But... isn't the speed limit 65? "
"Yes, it is."

"I'm TOTALLY freaking out man..."

"Don't call me radio, Unit 91"
"Then don't call me Unit 91, radio"
"Are you done?"

Great movie.

"Thats my wife, well ex wife..whose that guy she's down there with?"
"I dunno, he's not wearing a name tag."
"Want me to go down there, kick the **** outta him?"
