Virtua Tennis 3: Double Fault (PS3)

5WG has posted a few interesting points about Virtua Tennis 3.
"The Federer you face has had his abilities “turned down”, meaning that he’s a pushover, and doesn’t resemble the Swiss superstar on the court in any way. This gives the player much less of a payoff, and defeats the purpose of having Federer’s likeness in the game at all. Making things worse is the fact that you’ll see this from every licensed player in the game. There are 13 male professionals in the game - and they’re the only ones you’ll ever face; they’ll just be less talented then they are in real life until you dramatically improve. Not only is this unrealistic, it’s simply silly, and it makes playing the Career Mode much less rewarding. To many players, facing someone like Federer in the final at “Wimbledon” should be the highlight of their careers, and in the game, it should be something to strive for, but as it stands, even that is a ho-hum experience - after all, to get there, you’ve probably beaten Federer 30 times already."

Forza Motorsport 2 Weekly Pitpass Report (360)

The official Forza Motorsport website has posted their Weekly Pitpass Report.
"This week we follow-up on our showing at the Game Developer's Conference with something completely different but equally as impactful for the franchise. As many of you know, Turn 10 and Forza Motorsport 2 sponsors Risi Competizione, a Ferrari racing team competing in the American Le Mans Series. This past weekend, the ALMS held the first race of the 2007 season at Sebring International Raceway in Florida. The inaugural race of the season, otherwise known as the 12 Hours of Sebring, has been a long running tradition in the ALMS."

What up!? Sweet news on the plans for the XM/Sirius merger. Listening to spring training over the last week on XM has got me so pumped for baseball season.

I usually don't eat while gaming. First of all, I only have two hands...leaving no hands free for digging chips out of a bag or anything like that.

Secondly, I already feel like a lazy fat slob while sitting around playing games, I don't necessarily think I should add to that by pigging out on Cheetoes or something while doing it.

QOTD: I'll sip on a Dr. Pepper while gaming or watching TV. On the weekends, I'll have a beer or two, as long as I don't get too gone while playing. I usually don't eat anything though when playing or watching. I feel like too much a slob then.

What's up? I'm donating tomorrow!

QOTD: Never eat while gaming - although water is a must. When watching TV, I will usually snack on almonds or a protein bar.
