GC08: Wheelman presentation

GC08: Wheelman presentation

We were invited last week to a presentation of Wheelman at the Games Convention, with the game's executive producer Shaun Himmerick and Ian Stevens of Tigon Studios. I was very skeptical before going there since the previous videos of the game didn't seem very appealing but after the demo, and as long as they fix the obvious technical issues (especially the framerate), it looks like this game could be a lot of mindless fun. I'll let you guys judge by yourself with this first video, with more to come!

Not very impressed on the framerate and chasing gameplay ( always hitting on smarts, like they are made of plastic? ) but that cutscene in-engine(?) opening and the shots direction was stunning.

I see the car control is something like Ridge Racer 1,back in '95-'96.
Damn that...seems like an awful game.No tire marks,zero shadows in the tunnel.

Thanks for the vid.

The game is planned for release around February or March 2009. There still is a lot of time to correct the framerate issues and add all the little details that make a difference. Keep in mind that the version shown was an early build of the game. :)

Makes me cross because Vin Diesel is awesome. (Chronicle of Riddick on PC/Xbox anyone)

And this sucks. But Tigon studios and him usually make far better games.

WOW! That game is completely BROKEN!

I saw a couple of nice things, but damn, it is bad bad bad. Graphics are so all over the place, and let's not even talk about framerate. Unless they plan to put a whole lot of time and MONEY into this game, this game is going to suck ass and will sell like crap--I would hope.

    toelessfoot @nostradamus: So 60fps makes it impossible? Environment reflections on console run at 30fps, the only blemish on an otherwise impeccable presentation. (9 Hours ago)

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I wonder if they intend to do more limited time modes like Fortnite. There's basically no way for them to keep up with that. (1 Day ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's still just on the test server.. hopefully they adjust that when everyone complains about it. (1 Day ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I thought this 8 player squad mode in PUBG was going to give me a reason to return... but the max party size is still 4? That's just silly. (1 Day ago)
