First a reminder that Trials HD is on sale 400 points, along with the existing DLC is 240 points.

TODAY ONLY - BUY IT, YOU WONT REGRET IT


Now for the new DLC.

http://www.shacknews.com/onearticle.x/66542

Those bike-loving, bone-hating folks at RedLynx have announced its new DLC pack for Trials HD will launch on December 1. The "Big Thrills" DLC will be available on the Xbox Live Marketplace for 400MS Points ($5).

Additionally, on the Finnish-dev's official Facebook page, gamers can get their hands on a free, complete PC bundle of the original Trials titles dubbed Trials Legends [via Joystiq]. To get the bundle, all you have to do is give the team a "Like" on the Trials Legends Facebook page and the download link will magically appear. (We think all coding is based on magics.)

RedLynx has also open a new Trials Legends-specific forum on its website for players to discuss strategies and share tracks.

We should also mention that you shouldn't try any of these Trials stunts at home. Unless you're totally awesome. No, seriously. Don't do it.

Trials DLC is always an instant purchase for me. :)

For $5 they could do this monthly and I would buy it.  Played one run on the one easy and medium tracks. Some interesting new tracks, I particularly enjoyed the Giant Wall. Can't wait to tackle the 3 new extreme tracks.

Got it last night, and played through the easy levels, repeating a couple as needed to take Brent down. ;)  Here comes the fun as he takes them all back!

One of em took me quite a few tries to beat, which scares me as these were obviously your first few runs.

Are you chasing anyone else on your friends' list but me?  The game is so much better when you have a time to chase.  It's not nearly as fun (to me) when you are not chasing any friends and are just looking at overall leaderboard times.  It's hard to get as motivated.

You and Slumberland are the only ones on my friends list with the game. I agree that it is nice to have a few friends on the list to chase after.  I really think Jason should pick this one up as he does like moto games and I completely dominate him in them. Embarrassed

There are a couple tracks in the medium or hard area that really are not that fun.  Pirates, which is just hard to see what you are doing and I forget the level but it is basically a puzzler on a motorbike (it actually forces you to backtrack to advance, not once but twice). Another has you dealing with little red lines and other triggers that you either have to beat to the punch or wait for them to rotate, otherwise you blow up.

The one track that has me so far is the 2nd extreme track.  I got to the end in 50 or so tries but that last jump is a PITA.

My favorite so far is the clock tower. It is just a thing of beauty.

Web, I don't have the DLC yet but I've spent so long watching your ghosts disappear off into the distance over the last year or so that not only do I no longer enjoy chasing after you, I'm not even totally sure I like you any more...

It depresses me enormously to report that NFS: Hot Pursuit's Autolog stokes inside me exactly the same competitive fires that Trials did.

Okay Web, I am just going to let you go through and beat all my scores. When you are done with the hard and extreme tracks, I will then see if I have the skills to overtake you.  I did that on a couple of the easy tracks and noticed you caught that and proceeded to whip them again.

Your extreme times should be safe for a while.  Beat the first track there well below you, and timed out on the second.

I need to take those in small doses. :)

Adam, the Autolog is definitely what is attractive to me about NFS, but I'm definitely going to rent first based on a lot of rubberbanding annoyances I've seen posted about the 1p game.

The second one is a PITA.  Most of your times on the easy and medium are safe. I rarely go back to these and gold is usually the extent of ability.  For some reason I dig the hard and extreme levels.  They allow for a few screwups and still be successful. 

Right now they are the top downloaded game on XBL and Red Lynx deserves every penny it gets from the game and the DLC.

It appears we have a bit of a rivalry now with this game.  Just when I had beaten all your Hard track scores, except the last two, you wiped them all out. LOL  I got one back and with little college football on Saturday you have given me something to do.
