    Best rally sport game...

    For the ultimate in realism, get Rally Trophy, don't even bother screwing around with anything else, I've played them all and I used to be a pretty serious racing simmer, but I can't seem to find the time latley. From the stats you might think those cars seem pretty slow. Just try driving one, you'll be humbled pretty quick Rally Trophy

But in general VWs are nothing special and are all over priced. Even the good old golf could sell for less, its gotta be tarrifs that cause it.

    Uhh, thats not a big block tex. Sweet V8 nevertheless As for gas milliage, as far as I know that is or is based on Ford's 351ci small block V8. Pretty old technology and a dinosaur design by todays standards, and the fuel econamy is a joke. Thats why I love the 4.6 V8 they replaced it with the following year and are still using now. It was a brand new design at the time and went into a brand new aerodynamic crown victoria/grand marquis. Gets 36 mpg (imperial) highway and is actually more powerfull than the older bigger engine. Current ones are running at 240hp in the crown vic/grand marquis and makes almost 400hp in the mustang cobra.

    Problem with European cars in North America is they're always so over priced. Probably because of tarrifs, but look at the VW beetle for example. Its an only mediocer (spelling) quality car even by american standards and it sells for over $20,000 in canada. For that money you can have a Nissan Sentra Spec-V, 180hp 6-speed transmission. And its a high quality car, among the best in the world.

    Finished resistance?

    The problem, there is always 2-3 tanks and maybe a BMP driving around the base, making approaching it almost impossible. My brother managed to beat it by stupid luck. After killing the guys around the castle he sent his whole squad running down the mountain and they were all killed except for himself. He got in the gunner position of one of the tanks, and just by chance the enemy tanks all showed up 1 by 1 allowing him to pick them off. Then when the enemy shot at him they kept hitting stuff that was in the way, and my brothers tank only took 1 hit i think. After killing the tanks he drove freely back to home base as the soul sruviving soldier.

You should see this place, it is very rare to see a car thats over 20 years old. Most cars on the road are less than 7 years old (if i had to guess). Mine is 17 years, and I have to replace the rad lines and brake lines because both are rusted almost to nothing. Back on topic: I would really like to see a mafia like game with modern cars that drive realistically. That would be great, just like on cops.

    Skip it?...well I guess I could, but it would make me feel so cheap...lol, seriously though. I don't know, it just really pisses me off, it shouldn't be this hard so early in the game. Am I doing somthing wrong? So far resistance is making the origional campaign seem like a cake walk.

    Finished resistance?

    Damn i'm having a hell of a time with resistance. I can't get past the 5th mission or whatever it is where you have to steal the tanks. I have no AT weapons and I'm grossly out numbered. The difficultly is comparable to the last few missions in the origional cold war campaign. I got resistance for my birthday in December, and havn't played it much since. I got frusterated and quit only to play some other games. I spent alot of time with mafia.

    "police" simulator

    I think its interesting to think about the mafia engine and the potential it has to make a gread cop game. Just strap me in the seat of a Crown Victoria and let me cruise....ohhh baby. You've gotta love those cars, I've been test driving a few recently but it turns out I can't afford the insurance . i don't think its even possible to get out of a Crown Vic after driving it for a while and not have a big stupid smile on your face afterwards. Oh well, good ol' Topaz is gonna have to make do for a while yet.

My clock makes kind of a low popping noise about a second before it goes off that seems to be detecteble only by myself. Sometimes it makes me jump so fast that I can actually switch it off before the music starts playing. Yeah that popping is word of some shitty time ahead, and I always get up in my freezing cold room and think of the day that lies ahead. Its like stepping out of a warm beautiful place (especially if im having a good dream) into a friged prison cell, and I get to do it every morning...except weekends.

    The best ww2 fighter aircraft

    I don't think the sea fury fought in WWII, not exactly sure but I probably would have heard of it if it did. WWII birds have been a special interest of mine ever since I was a little kid. I still remember playing Aces Over Europe when I just 6 years old. I couldn't read alot of the bigger words and didn't always fully understand what my mission objectives were, but I still had alot of fun. I fell in love with war birds after that, and I just kept reading about them and playing the flight sims. It was fortunate that I learned to read at an early age, sooner and much better than most other kids that were my age, and it got me into enrichment programs. LOL, you'd never know it now, Its like my launguage skills just suddenly stopped developing a few years ago, ive maxed out. But anyway, reading really made my childhood gaming experiance alot better than it was for most of my friends.

    The best ww2 fighter aircraft

    I would have to say p51 mustang for Its speed, manuverability and extreme range. The only major flaw is than one bullet to the cooling system would knock it out of the sky. The other one I'd say is the p47 thunderbolt, fast nad can take one hell of a beating. To my understanding it was the most heavily armmed fighter of the war (X8 .50cal mg). The p38 was good but it suffered from reliability issues, I've heard that near the last few years of the war Its pilots were not supposed to fly above 20,000 if at all avoidable. Some other planes were excellet and extreamly deadly like the spitfire series, and the FW 190, but they typically have pretty short ranges by comparison, holding back my vote.
