  • Thanks for the updates. Going to download Race the Stig later tonight. You know he really should have his own console racing game or atleast be included in a console game version from the various series of Top Gears"Star in a reasonably priced car" going against the Stig on their course and various other courses they have raced.

  • Sadly FF6 is still horribly broken on the Air and Mini Retina. It runs fine on my iPhone 5, but on my Mini Retina, the frame rate is abysmal.
