    Looks like another dumb "racing" game with explosions and fire around every corner.

    and buggy physX support is likely, too.


    I dont mind these silly derby racing games - flatout 2 is still massively popular at LAN events for its quick, silly, destructive gameplay with decent graphics.

    the unreal engine doesnt do AA in DX9. many unreal engine games dont bother adding DX10.

    Unreal Engine is so versatile that it can be used everywhere. Problem is, it makes everything look the same.

    Well, that was actually a good thing back in it's days that each engine had it's own feeling. But today since there are basically just two, Unreal Engine and CryEngine along with mostly inhouse build ones and a fraction of id Software works, it gets kinda old when you get a completely different game from different vendor that feels the same as all the others.

    So its a prettier version of the old "Twisted Metal" games? I'm sure you guys remember playing it on the original Playstation, with the crazy clown-driver and his ice-cream truck.

    Why can't someone bring back the POD series or something similar? The original had such amazing atmosphere and to me is one of the best racing games ever made.

    Anyways until the game is out cant exactly say how the game will be.

    It might be:
    1) The bomb
    2) An ok game
    3) Utter garbage lol.

    So probably its either 2 or 3 :laugh:

    No real gamers would care about AA. If the game was good and fun, that is all that matters.

    Besides the fact that there have been UE3 games with AA, it just has to be added by the developer.

    I fail to see how PhysX is buggy. I've yet to have a problem with it in any game that supported it, it actually works quite well. It is actually the best physics engine I've seen, saddly it is under-used because of it only being supported on nVidia cards.

    I've never enjoyed playing racing games, BUT I've liked the alternative spin games like Outlaw Golf put on a game.

    Racing is and can be fun but I get bored with it easy. Racing a car on fire is something I might be interested in.

    That's silly, just need to turn it off and play it without physx, i can't believe you moved because physx crashed your games :laugh:.

    Batman and Mirror Edge worked just fine for me, I only played Mirror Edge for like 20 mins or so though.
