Awesome, I was looking at this for something after Forza 5, and what do I find? Quick look!

Edit: and after finishing the QL, probably gonna wait till it's out of early access.

Posted by HammondofTexas

First official Unfinished! Genuinely excited about this feature!

Posted by RazielCuts

Ha, you're actually putting the build numbers of the games, you crazy people.

Posted by GraveyardPolka

Unfinished is a great idea.

Posted by GS_Dan

I support the ridiculous idea of putting version numbers in descriptions.

That scene at 13:50 may have sold me on that game

Posted by ASTROID2

You guys skipped a complete major thing in the game. The sneak peak 2.0 is a separate game on steam that downloaded when you downloaded the game.

this looks awesome

The car damage model looks really good in this.

Wish I liked racing games. This looks really neat.

Why is Jeff aware of demolition derby rules and strategies?

Posted by AlexGBRO

very cool but still early, i think the damege in the car/track is fantastic

Giant bomb will always be a threat.

Man, it's been a long time since I played Destruction Derby. This looks amazing.

Posted by Darji

Great choice for the first episode. Yeah there is barely a game yet but the promise is and looks really cool.

Posted by D4RKSH33P

Does anyone know if this game is finished?

Posted by jimmyfenix

Man it is always great to see a Bugbear game. Loved Flatout. A bit off topic i would love a new Destruction Derby come on sony!

Posted by Vod_Crack

Would buy this Day 1 if it came out on Next-Gen consoles.

Posted by BishopRen

Well the devs were big fans of the Wargameing interface.

Edited by MrOldboy

@astroid2: yes, sneak peak 2.0 is why you'd want to get this game early access. This feature is perfect though if they want to revisit it or maybe drew will show it on UPF.

Posted by Vod_Crack

@jimmyfenix: Nah, Sony blew it with that franchise ten years ago with Destruction Derby Arenas...

Posted by TheHuffness

Of course Jeff has been involved in multiple demolition derbies. I don't know why I didn't just assume that was the case.

Posted by Zaxex

I really like the crashing and deformation stuff. It doesn't look very fun to race though, that could be due to the game being unfinished or just how Bugbear make their games.

Well, it's cool to see it regardless, great idea for a feature - though I don't really want to buy into any of these Early Access games yet.

What is it about Drew that anytime he and Jeff do something Jeff seems interested, upbeat, and positive? Whatever, really fun quick look.

Edited by tbk

wonder what Vinny would have done in this...

I just hope they add the stunt events back in. Bowling with the driver was fun.

The first game these guys did was Rally Trophy which is one of my favorite rally games. It had nice physics and old rally cars like the Volvo Amazon and the Saab 96 V4.

Also I remember a lot of driving backwards and winning by last man standing in the original Destruction Derby. I may be mis-remembering however. I just remember that seeing the demo of DD and Tekken on the Demo One disc at a friend made me run to the store and spend all my saved up money on a PSX with two controllers and those two games and I did not regret it for a second.

Edited by namesonkel

I really want this game but I don't want to get it until it's finished.
This looks like Bugbear is making the game they've always wanted to make.

and don't get me wrong on this one, I love the damage modeling, but they might want to tone certain parts of it down, at least for Demolition Derby.

Posted by alex

@spacejamlunchbox: Jeff and I have a mutual acquaintance who used to run in demolition derbies at the local fair every year. Also, apart from that, I'm pretty sure Jeff is fairly knowledgeable about any and all situations in which cars wreck into other cars.

Posted by AlKusanagi

420 ramp takedowns erry day!

Edited by cikame

You absolutely have to turn on anti-spin, the cars continue to be loose and fun but it's alot more controllable.

Posted by White

Pitty they didn't show the little sandbox mode. That seems like the most fun of it all.

Posted by FlipperDesert

If anyone's interested in the game, it's really worth taking a look at their tech demo too, it's basically a room full of ways to fuck with the physics engine/models and it's awesome.

Posted by SlashDance

They could've made a post-apocalyptic racing game set in Nevada and called it Flatout: New Vegas.

What a waste.

And it's the best part, currently :P

Watch the video and find out?

Posted by Mister_V

I picked this up last night. This has the makings of a really awesome game. The damage model is really great.

And even at this early stage the AI is really fun to race against.

I also really like that wrecked cars stay on the track. It add a bit of random fun dodging them.

Posted by dahlis

I don't care much at all for racing games but there's something deeply satisfying about the damage model and physics in this game. Especially when cars start flying into the air - wow, that looks great.

Posted by WalkmanBoy

Anything with cars spectacularly crashing into other cars is good in my book!

Posted by Shtinky

Still dreaming for a game which looks exactly like the MotorStorm E305 video.

Posted by Sarumarine

Shout out to Drew's sick half-pipe takedown. Highlight of the show. This was a lot of fun to watch.

Edited by Vuud

Do they actually do demolition derbies on asphalt? That seems real super fricken dangerous.

Oh and I want to reiterate my suggestion for calling this segment "the Alpha Dawgz".

Edited by AMyggen

This looks like it has some potential.

Edited by 2HeadedNinja

In germany there is a demolition derby TV-Show on in regular intervals ... and there they score exactly like @jeff said based on how much you can spin an opponent. They have a circular track though not a big open stadium like in this game.

Edited by zenmastah

Drew needs to play the tech demo on UPF.

Dat magnetic ball...

What if the video is why he's asking?
