I must play this game... I have it sitting in my 'incoming' folder along with about a bajillion others. I loves me a good racer and this looks like a hell of a lot of fun.

Might even have to drag out the ol' Logitech MOMO Force for this...

You'll be prying it out of my cold, dead hands. I freakin' love the thing, it's just a pain to drag it out and set it up. I'd like to use it in a custom built racing cockpit someday.

BTW, check your e-mail, your file is ready.

DiRT 2 is fun as hell, but I've swapped my "main" game to Batman: Arkham Asylum. Feels like a console port, but the story and action are pretty good. There are some very 'Batman' moments and it's cool.

Tried to play CoD:MW2, but for some reason I can't make it past that first battle (the one with the enemies on the roof shooting RPGs at the hummers). Game hangs. Thinking I'll start GTA4.

<edit> I bought CoD:MW2 on Steam ... didn't acquire it from Mexico. Didn't think software you buy months after it comes out had this sort of trouble anymore.

Nox - I don't know if you still have the RumblePad, but that controller works pretty well with DiRT2. You have to program it in-game of course, but after that, it's great. And a ton better than just the keyboard.

You know I actually went looking for one today online and couldn't find one. They've got newer ones but the button layout isn't the same and from what I've played with in the store none of them 'feel' like the Wingman Rumble FX did.

Not that I could afford it, anyway. I am broke totally for the next two months at least. Man I'll be glad when my big 'debt' is paid off.

I need to try out these other two knock off controllers I have people have given me. One of them is this stupid Nyko with a spring loaded retractable cable that is totally ghey, but the actual controller has a great hand feel. The other is one my little brother gave me and I haven't actually looked at yet.

DiRT2 is a part of the GFWL grouping, so I'm pretty sure that translates into automatic 360-controller support.
