We need a Vinny Quick Look of this game! I'm already getting nostalgic remembering the Euro Truck Sim 2 QL. One of the best pieces of content on GB:

Definitely do need a Vinny quick look of this. Agree Euro Truck Simulator 2 quick look is some of the best content on the site.

Good news is that their equipment is already isolated from the greater CBSi network, so viruses are less of an issue.

One Alex Navarro appears to be playing the game right now according to twitter, so we'll probably get a Beast-look with Vinny, him and Austin.

I'm shocked there isn't more activity on this board. Who doesn't want to be a truck driver? Its like Elite Dangerous but a truck.

@devil240z:

This particular version (American) looks more like Rebel Galaxy, but with trucks.

I still go back and watch that ETS2 QL from time to time. One of the finest bits of content on the site.

Very excited to see what they do with AmTS and I'm pretty sure it'll be coming from the Beast Crew.

I really hope we get a full-on 2 hour slot. Or just playdate it even!

Every time I hear Adele (which is a lot considering her music is played bloody everywhere these days) I'm always reminded of Vinny tipping the truck over as he turned, gets me every time and makes listening to that music a little more bearable. :D

@dimi3je: I was playing it yesterday listening to one of the included internet radio stations and it sounded eerily like Rebel Galaxy.

If only I could get my Peterbuilt to fire broadsides.

There is a weird catharsis with these Truck Sim games. Driving is meant to be stressful dammit

Does American Truck Simulator also have multiple trashy European electronic dance music stations?

The only real question is if this breaks the 3 hour mark.

Looking forward to David Letterman kicking the door of the studio open, demanding to know how Vinny managed to email him multiple viruses.

Maybe it's just that it is more familiar to me but the idea of trucking across America seems much more fun. I need a Vinny road trip from San Francisco to New York.

Someone should make a guide on how to bypass the speed limit and be sure to upload it on a shady website.

@personandstuff: Sadly the game's only got California and Nevada at the moment, with more states coming as DLC.

I sense a Crusader Kings II style add-on release pattern.

@dave_tacitus: Right. Two states and two trucks. But only $20 dollars. It feels more like a demo at this point.

I won't link it cause other sites and all that, but the McElroy brothers did a video of this and it's hilarious. It'll hold me over until the inevitable BEAST catastrophe.

It will happen. They know they are sitting on potentially the hottest content of the year. I am feverishly waiting for it.

Soon I will begin chanting and invoking the dark arts and hexes reserved only for the most dire circumstances.

I will likely be steering (*cough*) our QL but I am trying to convince Vinny to take the wheel for at least a significant portion. He is reluctant to do so without a driving wheel.

This is perfect in so many ways. Maybe go the whole hog and hook up a HOTAS and TrackIR.

Either way I am glad this thing is getting the video treatment it deserves. God speed.

The GiantBEAST office isn't complete until it is properly equipped with a driving wheel and track IR to compliment the HOTAS (a computer desk should probably be attached to this order as well).

It could never live up to the legend that was the first one so don't even bother with it.

I think that says it all, really. Not pictured: Vinny reading a map upside-down out of frame

I don't think I've ever seen Alex that happy.

He looks like me when my first child was born. Or when I got a racing wheel.

I feel like this deserves another one of those CBS posters a la Flight Club

Alex has already delivered his part in it ;D
