Wow didn't know it was coming out so soon.

Posted by craigymail

This just screams Burnout!

Posted by Korolev

This game is.... a game? This is the first time I've heard about it. I heard more about the Vita's Ridge Racer than I've heard about this game. Poor marketing guys. Poor marketing. I expect this game to bomb horribly, on the premise that very few have probably heard about it, and some of you even sound surprised that it comes out soon.

Posted by Gatehouse

This is weird, I was listening to the podcast just before coming here and they were talking about this maybe coming out. Nice little coincidence for me.

Ain't no Ridge Racer without Reiko

This plays similar to split/second

Couldnt get this out of my mind:

Jeremy Clarkson would love this game. POWER!

Posted by JBird

Is it me or there a lot of elements from NFS Hot Pursuit in this? the woman, the car selection/colours, even sound effects.

Why does it have to be frag?

Posted by Vitor

I've heard amazing things about Bugbear's previous Flatout games so I remain hopeful. Always happy to have a great arcade racer steal away the hours once one finally comes around.

Posted by Sogeman

Probably would have been better if they just made another good Flatout.

Also, they really missed a chance by not sampling Power wheneever you use Power.

Posted by Venatio

You gotta have POWER!

This game continues to have a stupid name.

I can tell it's the Frostbite engine just by looking at the menu.

Posted by geekbot

I know some people find the effect to be over used these days, but I really like how they implement info via text in the environment, like the number of laps, and how behind or ahead you are.

Posted by Morningstar

Qick look!

Posted by Moncole

I never played a Ridge Race :/

Posted by Nymbel

Really love the looks of this game, the menus etc.

Posted by ArcadeHero

This game looks way more like burnout than i was expecting.

Edited by Devildoll

woah, that bit where the power went out just before he hit a wall,

the game should be able to anticipate that he wouldnt have gotten there in time, and shouldnt have prompted him to run into the wall like that.

also, those menu's are hella BF3.

This seems cool. Sucks that user tracks can't be played online though.

Posted by AlphaCat

No thanks. I've seen all this before but better.

Pretty sure you can, just not in Quick Match (says so in the descriptions).

Hey, they remade...

Posted by SippyCupNINJA

Looks dull and cookie-cutter. Controls seem terrible.

Posted by KaneRobot

Is "Frostbitey" a term yet? If not, this is the first use of it. Remember this moment.

it's great in racing games, because I don't ever want to take my eyes off the road.

Posted by FuzzYLemoN

Shinnnnndo Racing.

Posted by BaconBuTTy

Does this have terrible sound quality to anyone else?

Buzzing and crackling?

You make that sound like that is a bad thing.

Posted by Death_Burnout

I love Flatout, love it, so I'm willing to give this game the benefit of the doubt, but maaan...if there is one thing I don't like about this game, is how dull and miserable it looks.

Also what is it with sunsets and racing games? who actually thinks video game dusk looks good? Because 9/10 it looks like a headache, it's never rendered quite true to life, it's just harsh orange lighting and stupidly dark shadows, and for racing games that is the worst, the worst! And they're everywhere! Flatout also a big offender.

Arrrrgh! Ok good, needed to get that out there.

Edited by Wikitoups

Getting some vibes of blur, split/second, burnout, and need for speed most wanted, with a little bit of trackmania.

You know what? fuck yeah I gotta go get this.

Edit: I wanna see a tnt of this to see the different user created content.

Posted by Winsord

This looks pretty fun, but I really dislike it visually. Everything is really dark and it's all done in the blue/orange hues; felt like it was trying to hide ugly textures or something with how heavy the effects were.

Posted by MelonMasher

Make it a downloadable game on demand and I will bite.... To lazy to make the trip to the store to find.

Edited by nomorehalfmeasuresdoctor

After playing Criterion's NFS Hot Pursuit I now would like every racing game to control like that. Crazy, I know. If anyone has this game please tell me how this game compares. I can't really tell from this video.

Edit: I wish this game had a stunt mode like rush 2049.

Posted by SexVicar

To answer Jeff's question regarding "Can you use custom tracks online?". You can do it. Set up a custom game and when gives you track selection, it will give you the option to browse online cities and put five tracks in a playlist or even use your own tracks you created.

Unbounded TNT, anyone?

Posted by Quantical

They shat in that bay.

"Those boards don't work on water, unless you've got POWER!"

EDIT: dammit, redbliss beat me to that reference. well played ;)

Edited by Gav47

This games looks pretty good, silly Namco, why isn't it on Steam?

Spoke too soon

Posted by Rotnac

im glad Jeff mentioned Burnout Revenge. I thought that EA already shut down the servers for it years ago but I can still play on Xbox Live and surprisingly enough there are still people playing.

Posted by ScoreSetter

This makes me wanna go back and play some Burnout Paradise.

Posted by Marcness

Shatter Bay? Is that where Critical Velocity takes place?

Speaking of Critical Velocity...why can't I find ANY information about this game!? I got it in 2005 when it came out. Good game, but because it's so heavy on Japanese dialogue and subtitles, I couldn't get too much into it.

Anyway, I'm wondering if Ridge Racer Unbounded has any relation to Critical Velocity....

Posted by kalmis

Bugbear throwing some Finnish language there.

Kuolansuu, from the thumbnail means something like: drooling mouth.
