    Not sure, but I can't think why not. The only stuff that is Gold would probably be playing other people online. Leaderboards and stuff like that is available to non-Gold members as far as I know.

    That level gave me all kinds of issues, its that last little water blast right before the finish that ruined me EVERY SINGLE TIME. I'd fault and have to start all the way over.

    So online multi in this game sucks, really bad

    Other riders are choppy as shit, and it is the absolute worst screen-tearing I've ever seen in a video game

    Hopefully the screen-tearing isn't a problem for local multi, I was gonna do that tomorrow night with friends

    Some of my favorite racing games are platformers... Trials, Uniracers... Iggys wreckin balls... Actually that's all I can think of, but still!

    I'm glad the scorpion finally unlocked, Ive been using the Donkey and forgot how nice it is to not do backflips constantly...

    I don't know that I've ever noticed screen tearing (in anything, not sure I could even really describe what it is), and the coupe multi matches I've played were pretty darn fun.

    Added you.

    I've just passed the A license and unlocked the Phoenix. Gold medals and no faults on everything so far. You guys seem to be falling apart around the Medium tracks, it's like you don't care anymore! Beating your times by ten seconds on every track! Course, Allforce's list is full and I hear he's pretty good..

    I want this game really badly, but after my Live account got hacked and that whole ordeal I'm never tying my CC to Microsoft's system again. But I'm not in a position to go out and get microsoft points cards, unless they sell them at the local Caseys.

    Anyone else find it odd that there's an Ico/SOTC level?

    Considering this is only on XBLA, and Ico/SOTC will never hit that console?

    jclast, this is screen tearing. I notice it occasionally in single-player, but in multiplayer it seems to run rampant and it's really distracting. Other games have had this fixed with patches though (Darksiders, Bayonetta PS3) so I'm hoping it can be done here.

    I just accepted your friend request.

    You should probably check the leaderboards again...

    See there we go. Everyone needs someone who they will never beat on their leaderboards.

    Speaking of people who are awesome at Trials, how do you watch other people's runs? In HD there was a "watch replay" button. Now all I see is "race ghost."

    I read somewhere the first one is the best selling XBLA game ever (even above Castle Crashers), and the main cause is the Microsoft Marketing Machine pushing it, as the demo for Trials HD comes pre-installed on every new slim 360. My 9 year old nephew got a 360 for Xmas and it's his favorite game despite only playing the demo that came on the machine.

    So opinion time. Which is the better bike - Scorpion or Phoenix?

    So far I like the Scorpion better. It handles nicer and I seem to get better times on it.

    Can you finish all the tracks with the Scorpion? I just assumed you needed the acceleration and agility of the Phoenix on some of the Extreme tracks.

    The basketball court jump in Dark City Run is my new nemesis. Or rather, the gap in the incline is. So frustrating.

  • FuriousJodoFuriousJodo Registered User regular
    I find that the Scorpion is better unless there is a lot of stopping and jumping for me. I use the Scorpion on anything with long runs without any problems but I use the Phoenix for anything that requires me to be super hoppy and such.

  • AllforceAllforce Registered User regular
    It really depends on the course but overall the Phoenix is the best bike all around. You just have way more control and power.

    if you trust sites like amazon with you CC info (they have never done me wrong), you can buy a code for points instantly online.

    This, a thousand fucking times. I swear I had to restart over 100 attempts, at least half of which were that fucking last water blast.

    Gamertag's BlitzAce1981 if anyone wants to add me and laugh at my feeble attempts/despair at seeing my scores (delete where applicable).

    So does anybody else think platinum medals are pretty easy to get? My favorite tracks in hd were the simpler ones because every tiny bump had to be perfect to get platinum. I think I got the whole easy tier with less than 10 restarts on each.

    I know they get crazy as the tracks are more technical, but I had some pretty sloppy platinum runs

    Th...
    There are platinums!? Aaaaaaaaargh

    Ahem. I've gotten golds from the beginning through Prospector (which I now feel I could write a treatise on regarding how awful it is), but the sunset level bothered me in so many ways.

    Also, I need people to race! Only one person on my friends list has this game, and he's starting to haunt me.

    You have to get the expert tracks unlocked (130 medals or something?), but it does give you credit for any you have earned (I had 3, which I thought was really cool). I think you can tell you've gotten them by the fireworks after a run.

    Discovering that platinum existed and my inability to do even the easiest ones makes me not want to even bother golding the rest like I'd originally planned.

    I also managed to fail out of one of the flatliner tracks for too many restarts on the final goddamn obstacle (I was up to a fair number, but fully 300 or so were on a single obstacle). Terrifying.

  • musanmanmusanman Registered User regular
    I did the achievement yesterday where you beat one of the hard tracks with the smallest displacement bike in there. There were two parts on there that were cursed at...a lot.

    I am super competitive and hate losing games, but I've developed a pretty thick skin regarding trials (I'm not sure how). I think after beating enough of them and getting to yell 'THAT'S RIGHT YOU ARE MY BITCH GAME SUCK IT' makes it all worth it.

    I don't know why, but I probably just put an hour worth of restarts, rage, and expletives into getting into the top 1000 on Strike. This fucking game.

    I have to admit, I never bought the first game, but always played it at my friends house. I decided to remedy this by buying Evolution. I'm not very good at it yet, but I love competing on the leaderboards, so add me! GT is Temperature MD.

    Aww darn. I took the top spot on that course earlier and was feeling pretty good. Guess I need to go back and reclaim it!

    Edit: Top spot is mine once again. COME AT ME
