    It is funny to watch how the AI messes up.

    Tire squeal on snow?

    Rik, I don't think it will take that long as steam seems to say 6mbps but it is much faster once it gets going. Leave over night. I think you will enjoy this game.:tup::tup:

    I hope everyone had a good New Years.

    I looked up the IGCD list for this game's cars, and there are some cool unexpected choices, only some of which I had seen in video already. :)

    A70 Supra, CRX, Jaguar XJ-S, S30 Z, KPGC10 Skyline, Volvo 240 wagon...and even a Reliant Regal Supervan (though according to the comments on IGCD it doesn't tip over like it should).

    I ended up downloading this off steam last night, only took about 8 hours:crazy:, and even on the lowest graphics settings, some thing even turned off, it ran at about 3-5 frames per second i reckon, omg, absolutely unplayable on mine:banghead::(

    Have to say though it looked very nice, and the one crash i had was superb damage wise, oh well, have to wait another 6 months or so before we get it on console...

    I remember a few years ago I tried Wreckfest, was really dissappointed that it's nothing like Flatout and it was laggy as hell. Now I got the full game and it's a giant leap.

    Never thought I would say this but the full game gives me as much fun as Flatout 2 did. And even my low-end hardware literally eats it, runs quite smooth. The only thing I miss is the songs from the previous games.
    Bugbear is going back to its roots and all I can say is they are going to the right direction.


    What specs does your computer have? Mine runs way too smooth on medium compared to my PC specs:
    4Gb RAM
    Intel Core I3 550 (10 years old this year!)
    ASUS Nvidia Geforce GTX 1050 TI OC
    Windows 10 64-bit

    The problem is definitely the CPU. I thought I could help but the fact is that the specs are too low. Sorry for wasting your time.

    Yeah, I bought it in the Steam sale and have been having a blast with it. Wish I had picked it up earlier, but it took a hefty sale to overcome my reservations. Online is a blast, complete lack of tension compared to other games lol. You're expected to hit other cars!! :)

    Yesterday a friend came over to try a few racing sims. I told him to try Wreckfest as well. Guess what, he wasn't interested in the racing sims anymore when he tried Wreckfest. Wreckfest is what he wants!

    Oh yes, it is a pure sim. :lol:

    The physics are definitely not purely arcade.

    To anyone who's played it so far, how good is it compared to Flatout: Ultimate Carnage?

    It's not that arcade style. You'll definitely won't see cars crashing into each other while going with 180mph.

    As for me, Wreckfest is the better one, since it's a sim-like game, and I don't really like arcade games anymore. :sly:

    Wreckfest FTW.

    Wreckfest is much more realistic. The cars are very beautiful modelled. Nice scenery and realistic tracks. All the goodies from FlatOut UC are in Wreckfest. I thought of FlatOut UC as a fantasy game and Wreckfest as a more realistic game.

    All I could gather from their Twitter page a couple of days ago is that it’s coming later this year.

    No release date yet. Soon™.

    This seems like the ideal multi player racing game on console!

    While there, I poked my head into the Steam news page and found Bugbear has been posting some other updates recently:

    Introducing More Varied AI Cars
    Collision Improvements

    And this one's a bit older, but covers what is probably the main reason the console versions are coming later:

    A Look at Upcoming Performance Improvements

    Good stuff; it appears the wait for the console versions will be well worth it, as it will make for a better game (and on the disc instead of only in post-release support...what a concept!). :tup: :tup:

    Wreckfest is so much fun. I wonder what kind of game Bugbeargames is going to make next.
