Interview with Simbin

Interview with Simbin

Atari's Race Pro will be released in two weeks on Xbox 360, on the 20th. Thanks to the XCN, we have a long interview with Simbin and the game's Creative Director. As a bonus, we also got the CEO's biography - Henrik Roos, who went from being a national race champion to creating games. See inside for an in-depth explanation of the online mode, AI, realism and much more.

excellent interview. Very informative. I for one is looking forward to game, and I know what I'm hoping for: The most realistic racer on x360!

'realistic' as in being seen through my eyes. ;)

GTR was my favourite racer, I'm sure Race-Pro will take over.

30fps....

I don't really like their answer. Forza 2 managed 60fps.

...and what? If you weren't specifically told you wouldn't have noticed.

It's pretty easy to tell the difference between 30 and 60fps, actually, if that's what you're saying.

well, i can accept it has no 60fps since the graphics is superior to Forza in many ways. And the meat of the game (the physicsengine) is easily on par with Forza's (if the previous simbin games counts for anything).

Keeping this in mind, I would rather have a steady 30fps than 60fps that is anything but steady.

hmm, I defo want a demo before I consider but I am interested, I for one loved forza

Only game I am looking forward to on the 360 right now. Can't wait to try it out.

What's up?

    Tiz @GriftGFX: I think MS were in full on panic mode because they wanted to add value to their box, so they showed everything. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (2 Hours ago)

    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And like.. what's the purpose of the loot itself. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I feel like what the loot is will determine the way people play. Will there be the standard common to Legendary loot? Will some loot be harder to navigate to, if so, will it be worth it? (2 Hours ago)
