Edit: I hate the previous driver games. But I'm in the mood to watch this video thoroughly. Yay!

bugger...so close
Edited by MrQuizmo

A new Driver game!?! Man, if only I hadn't been totally screwed by EVERY DRIVER GAME before this. Guess what I will not be buying. Hint: This Game. 
 
EDIT: Also, I think I prefer the GTA method of making parodies of cars to actual licensed cars. Cause... I don't know jack about real cars, but I see them enough to enjoy stealing one and laughing at the car's model name and company. So I at least I get a dumb joke out of it.

Darn, missed it again.

This guy seems like he thinks he's too important to be interviewed by Jeff... 

Posted by ThomasJay

I've always had a soft spot in my heart for the original Driver, so I really want this to be good.

No he is being arrogant. Watch his face when he shakes Jeff's hand.

That guy is so important. He's innovating the fuck out of the industry.
 
Driving in an open world is innovative. Walking around, stealing cars is innovative. Switching cars quickly is just a weird childish gimmick. Will get old fast.

Well, to be fair, Jeff has gone on record dismissing Driver games as bad and irrelevant before they're out a number of times. I'm not saying he's been wrong, but if you are the guy who has been crunching them out for twenty years I can see how that could predispose you against him a little bit. 
 
By the way, regardless of the end result, the wheel of the car turns more than 90 degrees. Which is very cool. Yesterday I was playing Forza and wondering why the cheap ass F class cars seem to all have the same assisted steering than a 2010 Ferrari.

Why so serious

Posted by afrofools

I loved Driver: Parallel lines. This game 'seems' lame, maybe it isn't. Tanner or whatever his name is - is a pussy they should have used a better character.

No, that's still the British accent. Trust me, as someone who has to live with that, he's not trying to be arrogant, it's just his voice...

I'm so psyched for Driver:SF.  I'm a huge fan of the series and this will be a day 1 purchase for me. It looks so much fun. Just hopping it wont be a buggy mess like 3.  

Posted by Rowr

good interview, hopefully this can be a return to form for the franchise, the premise seems interesting enough.
 
Also, you americans are retarded when it comes to judging british people.

Posted by DrBobUK

I am going to play this game with the cockpit view.
 
I love the steering wheel animations.

Posted by Eaxis

I played Driver 2 to death, and I completed everything in Driv3r. I hope they accomplish to make a good Driver game again.

I find all the comments here way too serious:|

Posted by MonkeysDad

So they got licensced cars for realism... then enabled you to magically teleport between them.
 
Hmmmmm....

Posted by ZmillA

Keeping my eye on this one. The whole coma bit still sounds completely ridiculous to me and I like it.

I don't know, where is the new Giant Bomb office?

They made Destruction Derby? I loved that game!

Online
Posted by Vorbis

No idea they made Destruction Derby, loved that series back in the day. Updated version would make a cool XBLA/PSN game.
 
Looks like Stream has started a Mac trend, good to see.

Posted by SPACETURTLE
@MrCroftLover:  
They sure did. And that is a beautiful game! But I think I have to pass on this one.

Indeed.
Posted by fox01313

Agreed a destruction derby game for XBLA/PSN would be awesome as that game took a good chunk of my time before going into other games.

Posted by fillmoejoe

Cops in comas remind me of Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes. Which also reminds me I should watch series 3.

Posted by Capum15

I probably won't, but if I buy this I doubt I'll get very far in the main campaign with all the cars I'll be crashing into each other.
 
Whoa, they made Destruction Derby? That game was awesome fun.
 
Pretty good interview.

Posted by MagikGimp

I thought Martin was very professional considering he's creative director and not PR and I think Jeff seemed like he was appreciating that.

Posted by zaglis

So its a driving game.  

Nope.

Posted by ManMadeGod

Great   interview, Jeff asks interesting questions. Game looks surprisingly good.

Give them back the Stuntman series please!

Edited by HoldOnToYourAsses

Grrrrr!
 
 
This guy is an assholder! I ONLY HAVE THE PERMISSION TO BE AN ASSHOLDER!!!
 
Just kidding,he doesn't seem like an asshole

Posted by Brendan

I can totally tell from this interview that this guy is not only an arrogant douchebag, but also hates kittens.  And probably drives a Ford Fiesta. 
Posted by artofwar420

Huh? The dude seems totally like a nice fellow and totally professional.

Posted by Captain_Insano

Driver (the first one) was one of my favourite games back on the PS and still one of my favourite games (from fond memories). Driver 2 was perhaps the worst games I ever played and one of the few I quickly returned after a day because it was so atrocious.

Posted by XenoZak

Lol people dont know arrogance. Dude was sincere and a good interview. Stop judging people all of you :|

Posted by CharlesAlanRatliff

Great interview! Glad you managed to throw in the 3DS question at the end.
