    But what he didn't mention is that it's basically gone back to square 1 as far as most things are concerned with the engine overhaul. It is literally impossible to say what direction the physics will go from here, it was made more accessible in this build for keyboard and pad users because of the changes it is going through. Wait until it is in beta at least before deciding whether it's pure arcade or not ;)

    I actually want it to be arcade, but not in the way that people too often (ab)use the term.

    For example where I view Shift 2 as a failed sim, the lazy approach was taken by many to simply call it arcade as a consequence of it's failure. What I want is a sense of weight and all round robustness. I believe that they've got the depth there, I'm just disappointed that much of the community didn't have the patience to allow Bugbear progression through the game's state, rather insist on a regression.

    Arcade is not a dirty word for me. In fact I lobby for it's legitimacy. Part of that is not accepting that the words simulation and arcade are antonyms, and not accepting that an arcade game will lack depth.

    Well I don't care how they call it as long as the physics (car handling, crash physics tec...) is more towards reality than driving around without having to control the car, being able to crash into barriers without consequence. I want understeer, oversteer, torque steering etc... . :D
    It doesn't have to an off road game with Asseto Corsa physics, but I definitely want it more than just pure arcade handling.

    I want it to be challenging to drive a car, to control a car if you go over the limit. 'Driving on rails', without a chance of losing control over your car is not what I'm looking for in any race game. This is my personal definition of pure arcade. It reminds me of race games in amusement arcade (hall).

    Apparently it now has a non-placeholder name - WRECKFEST.

    The perils of placeholder names though...... Laughably, it seems that many are convinced that Next Car Game was actually a good name for the game.

    I would have liked something less generic than WRECKFEST though. "This Is What It Sounds Like When Two Tonnes Of Metal Cries" maybe?

    :banghead: The game doesn't recognize my G27 pedals hooked up using a Bodnar cable. I seen on the website a couple other people are having the same issue. :censored:

    I went for the 30% special offer this weekend.

    Interesting physics, I love the amount of scenery which can be destroyed, good graphics (after some heavy tweaking), nice tracks, FFB is subtle but grows on you. The AI isn't all that quick and does lots of incredibly stupid things, so just like online public races basically. :)

    It's still early days, but defintely a lot of potential.

    Wreckfest (Next Car Game) gameplay. The video is a race of three laps with the American Sedan car at the Gravel circuit with 24 cars.

    I also got the game at 30% off, been playing around with it a lot since then. Very fun game. I'm pretty sure there's a yellow Mini A.I. car that is programmed to only go around in circles, but other than that pretty good.
    The multiplayer games can turn into a cluster:censored: though :lol: at times I only get 2-4 FPS.

    Need ....to stay.... away from this thread. :drool:

    I'm making it very hard on myself not to start playing games again. This game looks incredible and a lot of fun.

    Is it better than FlatOut Ultimate Carnage? Because that is the game that I have.

    @AKps3 Might be an idea to edit the title of the thread with the name that the game is going by now.....

    Next Car Game: Wreckfest

    I agree this would have been a day 1 purchase for me on the X1. I haven't played a really good derby game since Destruction Derby Arenas or Test Drive Eve of destruction. Grid had an ok demo mode. Most people don't know but Destruction Derby Arenas was 20 players ONLINE on the PS2. Amazingly fun derby game.

    Man, this new pyshics engine is sure giving Bugbear a hard time, isn't it? Although I understand their worries of course, they want the game to work correctly without any major bugs while driving.

    And I'm getting very eager to get this game. I was (and I still am) a big fan of both Flatout 1 and 2, but this game is on a whole another level. It just looks like tons of fun, and I really want to see that for myself.
