    I know there are not many racing fans around these parts but sod you all I'm excited and smug to finally see this bitch in public! Esp after the last month of crunching!

    Yea thats right, did a good 4 years at black rock working on s/s and pure but went with the first blob of redundancys last year. Really miss that place, the studio was fantastic.

    Did a few months at climax games but it was pretty shit and have now moved to criterian for some contract work!

    That's awesome, Stormy. Truth be told, I'm not into racing games myself, but it's great to hear that a game from a popular series is being worked on by one of our own members, not to mention being showcased at E3.

    that screem looks too similiar to the first most wanted

    I hope they finally ditch the "gangsta" style that has been plaguing that serie for so long

    Our HQ is in Southam, that's where the main bulk of employees are. I'm at the Birmingham studio, there's over 100 of us there though.

    Nah I've not worked on DiRT Showdown. The title I'm working on hasn't been announced yet. Can't wait till it does though as I'm pretty sure I'm going to be as excited as you were to post this. It'll be my first commercial game :)

    I loved Most Wanted, but the last few NFS games have been absolute shit. They really need to buckle down and put out a better product. I hope you can make that happen, Stormy.

    Looks pretty fun. I played the hell out of the first Most Wanted, but one thing that seems to be different here is the courses aren't closed off? Seems like you're just doing the Burnout Paradise checkpoints thing which I wasn't a huge fan of. Impressive visuals though, the reflective puddles are a great touch.

    One other thing: please, pleeeeeeeease include the option to skip those crash cams. They got old super fast in Paradise, even as impressive as they were.

    (Yes I am holding you personally responsible for something you probably have no sway over. >:|)

    I never played any of the old NFS games, but I did play Burnout 3, and I loved it. It's what got me into racing games. It was my favorite, until I picked up the 2010 version of NFS:Hot Pursuit. That game is so fun, and the single-player Hot Pursuit events really get my heart going, when I'm a mile from the finish but really close to being taken out by the cops.

    However, I have played Burnout Paradise since then, and while the mechanics were great, it felt it lacking, since on all events I felt like I was either losing badly or winning handily; I never felt that tension of almost losing. I either chose the wrong route, and ended up coming last, or I chose the right route and won by 30 seconds.

    I'm not trying to be a downer; I'm absolutely confident this game will be fun to play. I just hope that it gives me the same sense of adrenaline and urgency as NFS:HP. :)

    Stormy, you're working for Criterion now? Tell your bosses to stop being cocks and get to work on Black 2. And tell them they are f*cking retards if they add health regen.

    Nice trailer. Also, one section in that trailer reminded me of my track in Race Stars. I don't think I can say what though, maybe you'll notice come release ;)

    How's it going over there? You guys in crunch?

    Yes, crunching like mad... 2 weeks till content lock then a week of bug fixing :/

    There are masses of the world no where near finished as well. The next few weeks are just going to be brutal :(

    Ahh, good luck man! We're not far off content lock here either but our world is no where near as detailed as yours. We're pretty solid art wise.

    Be strong, think of the time off after! (If you get any...)

    Great graphics but can you turn that grain filter off? Also with the cars drifting like that I'd expect more of a dust trail.

    AAAAAAAAA YOU NO YOU SEE I A MISTOOK PICTURE GAME PHOTOGRAPH WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    So I heard there's no awesomely cheesy story like in the predecessor. That sucks, like my favorite part was hearing them talk cheesy trash then pwning them.
