Yes yes yes!  I've been saying that for a while on this board. 

I just bought PGR4 today, so some of you should go out and buy Flatout!!!! $19.99

I think we'd have an absolute blast with SGN derbies!!!!

I have it already, GB.  I think Adam does too.  (or did)

I'll download the Flatout demo and check it out. I'd buy a good racer for $19.99.

What night did you guys want to get together for PGR4?

I don't know if they have the derbies in the Demo, Jason.  That's where it would be at online! :)

It's definitely an arcade racer, but 1p is not easy and multi-online would be lots of bash-em-up fun!

How about Wed 10pm for PGR?  I'm a complete n00b at 4, though.  I think I rented it for like two days when it first came out, but I don't know any of the cars or tracks or anything.

Wednesdays are the one night that's bad for me, but I can try to make some arrangements if it works for everyone else.

Flatout Ultimate Carnage.  It's pretty much $20 everywhere now.

Pretty good to very good reviews, too, if you are interested:

I've always liked it a lot.

I will pick up PGR4 soonish if interest stays.  Very good game overall.

One of the fun (but disgusting) parts of the single player is the arena where you have challenges like bowling and basketball - you are basically on a drag strip and have to break at the right time, sending the driver through the windshield and hitting the targets.  The all-out balls-to-the-wall races are reminiscent of old-school Burnout games (point-to-point while inflicting carnage).  The demolition derbies are great fun.  I think the demo has one demo derby arena in it.
