Very Motorstorm RC like, could be good if the playing angles are right.

This was playable at EGX this year. Was in the Rezzesd zone I believe but I didn't find out about this until afterwards.

Think I'll be getting it anyway, looks something I'd love. Hope there's loads of unlocks and achievements too. Plus leaderboards, challenges, multiplayer maybe. lol

Yeah I knew it was there but completely forgot when I was actually there myself! :doh: Never saw it either. Or Yooka Laylee either for that matter. Thought I explored everywhere! Obviously not.

Made this video for Mik but thought i'd share it on here for anyone interested in this game.

This weeks online weekly challenge is 20 laps in the quickest time with me and Mik taking the 1st/2nd spot currently.

The video will look really boring as it is just 20 laps of the same track with no AI. But it is a good fun wee game.

So this weeks weekly online challenge is to lap a slowish opponent which takes about 2 clean laps. Incredibly your chances of being able to set a top 3 time all depends on random luck as the ai seems to crash or take the long way round a shortcut which can mean you could do 2 runs exactly the same but the ai could be an extra 40 seconds round the track. Id say maybe 1 in 20 runs you have a chance of setting a top time which is frustrating. Currently me and Mik hold 2-3 position. If i didnt crash into the ai at the end of the run then it should have been good enough for the top.
