A few hours from now, you'll all be able to get your hands on the trial version of Mad Riders, Techland's latest title. Technically, this new racing game is quite colorful, with highly detailed tracks, quite an impressive draw distance and the fastest framerate you've seen in a while. The game also runs very smoothly, with almost no pop-up or aliasing issues to be seen. The only catch is you must accept a rather poor physics engine and the very arcadey controls which go with it. Not sure everyone will appreciate it, but hey, that's what demos are for.
Update: Two video added along with the launch trailer.

This actually looks good. I have to download the trial. Seems more interesting than nail'd and all the other retail titles.

They sure are. :P Pure was probably the biggest surprise of 2008 for me. The game currently cost under $10 - everyone should have it.

74.6 FPS!

I've never seen flower fields in a racing game, so that's new. I got excited just watching this, the sense of speed is great, can't wait to try out the demo.

    GriftGFX The most interesting thing in that article (to me) is the dynamic optimization in Forza Apex. That's a nice piece of tech that should make its way into other engines. (35 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX But why would you? A GTX970 isn't even enough to game comfortably at 1440p, let alone 4K. Robbing yourself of performance for IQ at that point. (1 Hour ago)
