    Mad Riders (PC, 360, PS3) – Review 

    Have Techland Nail’d the notion of Pure fun, or will the competition pass this cheap racer in a Blur?

    (More …)

    @tolkoto @beige Great work on the recent EBP, guys. Always an enjoyable listen to come home to. I gotta say, though…one of the PSP’s strongest genres is racing! From Ridge Racer to WipEout, decent to great portable versions of the Midnight Club games, a very ambitious and enjoyable Test Drive Unlimited version, the TOCA games, Bugbear doing a very competent SEGA Rally Revo on the machine…not to mention Motorstorm Arctic Edge and Gran Turismo! If anything, I’d say it’s one of the machines saving grace genres.

    By the by, Beige and Rampant, love the adventure genre. The little I could spend with BS this weekend, it was good to go back and soak up the goodness again. I’d forgotten just how good the dialogue is and how no-nonsense the puzzles are. George and Nico are such a gorgeous lead couple.

    I’m kicking off Still Life pretty soon. From the little I played of it before my craptop format/reset, it seemed like a nice counter to Heavy Rain in a lot of ways.

    @scribl: I’m curious to see how Nail’d turns out. At the moment, it does remind me of an offroad Top Skater meets WipEout, and I’m cool with that. You’re right, bumper cam isn’t exactly new! Still, the whole multiple path aspect taken into overdrive is very intriguing and the levels being a single run, rather than laps, sound exciting – given their gut-churning vertical nature.

    Incidentally, it’s by the guys who did those underrated Xpand Rally games, so they’ve got good racing chops.

    It’s weird that Nail’d’s touted feature is first-person racing. Doesn’t every racing game under the sun have a first-person camera?

    I guess their main innovation is adding a letter to the vaunted four-letter racing genre.

    As far as E3 goes, I *think* I’m most interested in some of the racing titles that’ll be demoed or showcased. Motorstorm Apocalypse should be exciting to see in motion. Nail’d, from the Call of Juarez guys, looks utterly fantastic – regardless of the dubious name. I’ve a feeling it’ll cause a sudden rise in bucket and airline sickbag sales, though. See here – http://bit.ly/bGO46v
    Also, Criterion doing the new NFS: Hot Pursuit should be great! Might bring back the Burnout 2 days, hopefully.

    My only hope is that developers remember to support the Logitech wheel community. Very few do.
