Hahaha nice reviews! I'm thankful that you play these terrible games so we don't have to!

Fatal Inertia is probably a C. I agree with everything you say but it is worth bearing in mind that this was the only attempt at Wipeout on this gen of the 360. Graphics are great and I played the game online. It is really unforgiving and unless you can get 10 players to play online with you the computer controlled bot wipe the floor with you.

The price is right. I hope you got it for 5 cents. It looks awful. This is what the kinect gave us. Trash like this. So bad it is insulting.

Oh man I grew up watching The Price Is Right as a kid too in the summers and over the holidays. It sounds like it had potential as I enjoyed that game show. Too bad they screwed it up.

Fatal Inertia EX on the PS3 is supposed to be a significant improvement over the original game, but it's download-only. Comparing my experience with that version to your review, I would say that the combat is more engaging and less irritating, the boost is a lot more useful, and the difficulty curve is less unbalanced. There's still plenty of caroming off the ground, snagging your vehicle on obstacles remains uncomfortably easy, and the handling is the same floaty, wobbly mess (a fun mess, to be sure), but I can see that version getting a C+ or even B- from you. Give it a shot if you think that the game's unique charms are worth exploring in a better context.

Not that it helps, but I will give Price is Right the budget icon.

Your review for Price Is Right did not come across as a review for an "F" rated game until the last sentence. It sounded more like an average game with a couple missteps and omissions that could have made it significantly better. Heck, I'd wager there isn't another "F" review on your entire site that includes the words "undeniably fun". I could be wrong, but I didn't get a feel that you were explaining a terrible game until the last sentence, and that's when I glanced up at the grade and was surprised.
