    RedLynx guys deserve it. Trials was a heck of a game.

    I interviewed them last year at my old digs before I went full-time here. They’re honestly good folk.

    Grats to them.

    I really wish I could’ve enjoyed Trials, but it just made me spit expletives. Shadow Complex was one of my games of last year, never mind ‘games of XBLA’. So full of awesome!

    I think the fact that it made me spit expletives is one of the reasons I love it so much. :D

    Trails was a man maker, that’s for sure. But I can’t quite afford to buy a surplus of 360 pads so I skipped trails. I get terrible rage you see :)

    I loved Battlefield 1943, I into shooters with big maps like that. It makes it a mix of stratagy and skill, instead of running into a room and spraying bullets….

    I agree with Blerk, Shadow Complex was the better game. Trials was fun in the early stages but it eventually devolved into a frustrating and unrelentingly repetitive experience.

    Accelerate -> Crash -> Hit B -> Accelerate -> Crash -> Hit B -> ad nauseum
