    Looks like Future Shop has Burnout 3 for $25 until tomorrow (June 2). Never really played this game before, and I'm not a huge racing game fan, but I heard enough great things about this game that I think I might just have to check this out. Besides, for 25 buchs, you can't really go wrong, can you?

    In three years owning my XBox, this game brought me more fun than probably all the others combined.

    I might have to pick this up. It's great playing with friends, but for $25....hell I do blind DVD purchases for more!

    Well, even though I suck at racing games, I still had a blast playing around with this last night. I think I'll probably end up enjoying the crash mode more than the actual racing though. There's just something cool about trying to figure out just where to hit the gas truck to cause the most damage.

    Racing online via XBox Live is the single best reason to pick this up..whether it be crash modes online or actual races, it's still fun as hell.

    Playing burnout 3 is becoming eerily like playing Tony hawk-another game that I had no real interest in until playing it for the first time, and then couldn't stop playing until I'd beaten everything. Starting to get the hang of the game, but I can't seem to get much variety in takedowns. It seems about 90% of the time I'm just ramming people into walls from the side, or coming up on them from behind. Is there something else that I'm missing?

    Strangely enough though, this is the first game that's really made me want a bigger TV. It's just a little tricky to see oncoming cars on my 32" set.
