Reader Comments

  1. By the way, Nghi, I was at the game too. I wanted to cry by the end of it. It was pathetically bad, and my dad and I both left pissed. We were up in 430 though, so my crying would have been stifled by my death from hyperventilation and or oxygen deprivation.

  2. Yeah, Warhawk is great. It is singlehandedly keeping me from losing my mind waiting to get back into Oblivion since I traded in my copy toward the GOTY.

  3. I tried using the motion controls but find using the analogs much easier. What turned me off was the fact that sixaxis controls turned on meant having to use it for ground vehicles as well. I would have rather used it solely for flying. All in all though, its insanely addicting.
