    Not bad!!!
    Ya, referring to private conversation, that's the gemstik I have.
    It's not bad, but I don't think it'd be ideal for the Skiing-in fact, I bet the flashback sticks I love so much might not be the best, I think my Skiing scores were all with a real CX-40, the tightness that I usually don't like actually helps on this game.

    Good Deal, Man, Nice to see ya on the VCS, this'll be interesting!!!

    Need to earn yur patch on this, 28.2 seconds, game 3!!!
