Downloading the demo. And it's going to take... 103 minutes?! This better be awesome or I'm going to want my five bucks back from GameStop.

Shit... now it's 120 minutes. :lol:

Oh yeah, that post doesn't make sense as is. I'm downloading the demo that was made available in the PS store today.

Also, the download now has 69 minutes remaining.

So pissed. It got to 99% and an error occurred. Now I have to start the download again! 596 minutes? Fuck you PSN, fuck you.

Correction, 2466 minutes.

yeah I hate demos on the PS3. Extremely long download times, then a long-ass install, then once you get into the game, you gotta give it like 10-15 minutes to install the update to the game.

For chrissakes just let me play the demo! :scream:

Yeah, it's seriously annoying. They're charging $60 a pop for these games. You figure the least they could do is make getting demos a little easier, because I'm not spending that much on a game I haven't even tried.

I was excited because I figured I'd get to play the demo a little before I went to bed. Doesn't look like that's going to happen now. I'm a sad, sad panda.

My demo for Turtles in Time downloaded in under 5 minutes AND installed in about 1-2? What the fuck are you guys doing to make it take so long?

I think the placement of my PS3 may be affecting my connection. It's in my bedroom and there's a bunch of copper piping between my router and the system. Strange thing is when my laptop is in my room, the connection is still really good/fast. So... I honestly have no idea.

Yeah, and it's my payday. Lucky! I pre-ordered my copy so I'd be able just to go in and pick it up on my way home from work.

I'm still downloading the demo even though trustworthy sources say the game is amazing. Getting the demo for Katamari Forever, too. The connection's much faster. I think it's because all the stupid neighborhood brats are at school.

I put in my pre-order today and picked up the strat guide. The guide kind of blows but it does tell you want you need to do unlock parts and earn trophies.

Here are a bunch of screenies from beta. In the beta only about 25% of the parts/cars were available but even with the limited selection you could come up with some nice looking stuff

Very cool. I can't wait to share my creations. They're so wonderful.

If you guys thought Assface the Bold was cool, just wait til you see my Awesomemobile.:rofl:

Oh, yeah. The download finished BTW. I've only done one race, but so far I like the game a lot.
