Indeed. Drove my sister's used Fiat Panda around Naples, Italy for a few mos. in the early 90s. Thing was the epitome of a POS car. In fact, I can honestly say that was the worst car I've ever…

Not that much of a hockey fan, even though I grew up in Philly during the height of the Broadstreet Bullies hysteria, but living in Raleigh today feels pretty good. :)

My first impression was: EA felt the original logo was too "tame" and wanted to move more copies with a brutal-looking logo that featured more blood splatter and cold steel. Perhaps that is just my…

I'm glad you see it this way. I don't. To me, it is akin to leasing a car vs. buying and I don't lease cars. For example, I have a copy of Shadows Over Riva, that I purchased when the game came out…
