yeah, i just want Pure 2(would love a Split/Second 2 also:)) to be honest. Sad Black Rock so no longer around. We'll see how this turns out tho.

RIP Black Rock. Split/Second is my fav non-sim racer this gen by a country mile. PURE was fun too but needed split screen.

I like the idea of semi cel-shaded graphics. That sort of visual style is not very common in racing games (anyone recalls Auto Modellista?).

However, after Techlands latest contribution to the racing genre - Nail'D - I'm not very hopeful. It was a horrible game.

Pure, at the other hand, was fantastic. Too bad we'll never see a sequel.

i remember auto modellista, it was from capcom on the ps2 and it looked fantastic, i wish capcom would sell the licence to criterion ect "not EA" so they could make a next gen auto modellista using cell shading again, i think it would be cool to see it again.

only played the pure demo, havnt bothered with nailed other than videos that looked good buy judging from the comments it was rubbish, problem there is the damage is already done, who will purchase this knowing the same team who made nailed is developing it ??.

About the game

    Moonwalker This doesn't look exactly bad to me: [url] (9 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Or well... now I'm confused, lol. Probably not every single game at native 4K. Not sure if MS ever claimed that, didn't they say only their own titles? (16 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker surprised if it's going to be this and of course the remaining missing info. However after all the "true 4K" comments by them it would be pretty stupid if it won't do it after all. (19 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @droezelke: Yeah but honestly... are you surprised? Sure it sucks that Jaguar will likely be in it, but those Zen rumors were too good to be true. Sure it's a doc from right after E3, but wouldn't be (20 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @droezelke: most CPU bound games are large scale multiplayer titles in my experience. There's a reason I'm still using a desktop CPU from 2011. (21 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Moonwalker: So, it will be only slightly faster than PS4 Pro, as the CPU is the bottleneck again. (30 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX He doesn't like first person games as some kind of near-blanket rule. (1 Hour ago)
