F****** lame. I just bought Avatar and now I don't have enough credit.

Lame.

At least it's out.

Actually, I'm about $1 off in my US account, and about $1 off in my Australian account. I wish you could transfer money from one store to another.

Games I have beta tested: Minigore, Cogs, Guerilla Bob, Above and Beyond: Air Combat, Baseball Superstars 2010, 33rd Division, Cash Machine, 5 star General, Flick Football... Possibly some other ones I;ve forgotten

Was expecting this next week (Really thought BIA2 would be first)

I'll wait for impressions.. Gameloft haven't 'wow'ed me with their racing titles thus far

EDIT: Going the shiny border now like EA it seems.

For those wondering it's $6.99 US

Superman, you ever sleep?

This looks/sounds nice and I'm sure it'll sell like mad, but I just don't think I need another racer; it would have to be something absolutely special to earn a spot on my iPhone at this point.

Hey guys if this is out, how come riddim ribbon isn't?? I checked the New Zealand app store (which is already the 8th) and it aint appearing...

Anyway, this game looks pretty good, but after all the other racing game I have, this will probably either need a sale or a REALLY good rating on the app store to win me over

Please help me by voting for my Doodle God contest entry here! Thanks!!
