    I just got Burnout paradise in the humble bundle and am lookign forward to playing that again. I've not found many to match it for terms of good handling, speed, damage and excitement.

    I look forward to the release of this, but I will never, ever pre-order a game. Ever.

    Flatout 2 is one of my favourite games of all time.. It was a favourite at LAN parties.

    Then Ultimate Carnage was released and it just improved the game! :D

    I think I put more time into the silly mini-games than I did into the racing!

    I'll wait for more in game footage or even a beta before I pre-order. I've learnt my lesson after FTruck which I didn't like at all.

    Looking on the official site at the video it shows abit more of the game which looks really good, however I wont be pre-ordering a game that isnt even made yet and not due for relase until spring of next year.

    Once early access hits people will record it to give us a better idea of how its working out. Good luck to them though as it looks like great fun.

    I like the damage models, but they really have to change it so that the car you're driving shows damage too

    I think that Bugbear should have done what PCars and AC have done and released the game with gradual updates. The money from sales would have kept them afloat once Steam Greenlight brought them into the spotlight. I wish the team all the best even if it means pairing up with a publisher.

    Not sure what the talk about anything being cancelled..the game's early access version is now available and looks to be a great star (downloading mine right now).
    Here's a vid showing someone else playing this version

    the confusion has come about as the devs withdrew from kickstarter (which prompted project cancelled emails to backers) and have instead concentrated on generating funding via pre-order:
    'Although our Kickstarter campaign has attracted tremendous enthusiasm, during the last couple of weeks it’s become obvious that we are not going to meet our goal. Because of this we have decided concentrate our efforts on the pre-order campaign'

    So looks like game on....:)

    Pre-ordered this - it is a lot of fun. This is a quick video of the demo derby section - 24 cars, everything maxed, ran at 80-90 fps.

    Next Race Game - Destruction Derby

    :eek: I've just seen a video on this and it looks as though it could be very good!

    I used to very much enjoy Flatout and the gameplay video I've seen of the demo makes it look very impressive

    Just bought this; the preview videos look fantastic and arcade racers always make a good respite from 'serious' racing sims.

    How is this working out? £15?
    Looks like a lot of fun for that.

    pre order from $25 which is about £15.

    no brainer as it would be a day one purchase from me anyway and had already pledged to the now cancelled kickstarter project

    Does anyone know it it will work with a ps3 pad?
    Is the demo a multiplayer thing?

    No but you do get 3 different events: destruction derby environment, a gravel track and tarmac track with 2, 12 or 24 cars plus the ability practice on the tracks.

    You also get access to the tech preview version 2.0 which is even more fun as it too has 20+ AI cars, weapons and a host of ramps and destructable things to mess about with.
