Yeah, WWE All Stars. The demo was fun despite getting my ass kicked by Rey Mysterio a bunch of times.

There are two things I miss in the new YDKJ compared to the original:
1) Games are 11 questions instead of 21.
2) Picking your own category

I'm kind of glad they removed the gibberish questions though.
I forgot about the gibberish questions. Those were awesome/terrible.

Nah, I don't have a PVR. I'd love to record things and put them up, but I can't.

There are a few people on the Ubisoft forums that are top players on the 360 (and at least one on the PS3, who's currently #3) that put videos on youtube.

EDIT: This guy used to be #1 on PS3, but he mostly stopped playing.

Oh man - I forgot about those! They were my favorite....damn them!

I always thought Dis or Dat was kinda lame since only one person participates in it. The new one kinda corrects that with the "steal" aspect though.

The console version don't allow for some of the fun easter egg-y things, like buzzing in before choices are given and being required to type in an answer with no multiple choice. And then typing in profanity and having the host say they don't want to play with you anymore and shutting down the game.

I think the "wrong answer of the day" is a clever addition to the format though.

That's exactly how I feel. It was definitely a love/hate relationship.

What does a year long Xbox Live subscription cost these days? Any good deals going on? Mine is up in August (I'm pretty sure), so I'm looking in advance.

Picked up Rock Band 3, No More Heroes 2, and the latest Harry Potter (non-LEGO, for trophy wh0re-ing). They were each less <= $20, which is the price I'll buy just about any PS3 game I've ever had interest in.

Although GT5's is ok, I still prefer to blast dubstep while I'm racing
