I just purchased Paradise this weekend, actually.  I had it for a long rental when it first came out, but only grabbed it to own now that it is very inexpensive.  I was looking for a bit more 'standard' racing when I started this thread, but I'd be happy to play in some online Paradise sessions too.

I don't have anything apart from Stuntman Ignition at the minute, though I could probably be persuaded to pick up PGR again (again, again, again as it happens...) if it was likely to have any kind of medium-term mileage.


Yes, the post-release support has been fantastic - two major additions that they could have charged for, but gave out for nothing.

The online play is fantastic Adam.  There are challenges you can do as a group depending on how many are in the room - 2-8.  Most of them involve everybody meeting up somewhere on the map and then doing tricks simultaneously ..... hard to explain unless you are playing it, but that mode has the best replay value of any.  Maybe we can get a room going - I know over a dozen people who would love to start playing this on a casual basis.

I don't have Grid anymore, but I have PGR4 and Nascar.  PGR is a better party game IMHO - I have a few non-SGN buds who would love to play if you wanted to fill a room (plus there is Fazeo, of course).

Anyone have Burnout Paradise?  That is probably the best driving game out there right now.

I'd love to do some PGR or NASCAR racing.

I'm jonesing for some online racing.  Anyone else? 
 
I know a bunch of us have Nascar, but I'd consider other options too if folks have other games.
 
PGR? GRID? Anything else?  I don't have PGR4 but I'll pick it up if it'll get folks racing again.
 
Maybe Wed night or sooner?
