alright I have joined the dark side and bought this game after much hedging (I've never paid full price for a game and rarely bought an XBLA game at launch; and now, Pinball Arcade and Trials Evolution have grabbed me).
Sheekamoo is a boss... now have a target to aim for...
online gaming for this game is not as intimidating as I thought it'd be.
apparently 100,000 people trying to play online at the same time crashed the servers...http://www.computerandvideogames.com...n-launch-rush/
Leaderboards and online interactions feature heavily in the excellent Trials Evolution, so it's a major issue when its online servers go down.
And that's exactly what happened yesterday - launch day for hotly anticipated XBLA game - when 100,000 players rushed in to post their ninja-flipping scores and replays to leaderboards.
