Looking good! I hope you can disable power ups somehow.
I liked the song too.

The power ups seem like a rip-off from Midnight Club: LA

@linfosoma: Why would you want to play the game at all then? Might as well play a dedicated racing game.

@lordofultima:  Well, just as an option really.
The thing is that I saw that you could customize your games the way you wanted to and set your own rules (according to an interview I saw in gametrailers). So it would be nice to try it for a change of pace once in a while.

As for why I don't just get another game, Im a PC gamer and the only options I have in the arcade racing department are Burnout Paradise (which I love) and  the shitty Flatout: Ultimate Carnage, and a few old NFS games...

Looks like a much needed break in all the serious sim racers out at the moment IMO.

I'm so conflicted about this game. I want it to be good, but it doesn't look so good.

Anything with Gary Numan gets my attention.

I actually like the way this is looking. Weird and different, but still good. I'll be keeping my eyes on this.

I was really, really skeptical about this one, but this looks like it could be excellent. Bizarre continues to be awesome.

I would have liked this game more if it was about the band Blur.

I honestly see nothing groundbreaking or interesting about this game. Powerups in racing games?  Been there done that.  What's the new "Gimmick" that'll get people interested in a game like this?  I have no clue but for me this isn't it.

You can't just drop Gary Numan onto some footage and expect it to work without some decent editing.

Meh. The illegitimate offspring of Burnout and Wipeout?
