New PSN Title 'Fuel Overdose' Revealed

After two years of development, a new classic 3/4 overhead perspective racer has been revealed by developer I-Friqiya. (Trailer and screenshots included) (Fuel Overdose, PS3)

This doesn't look great...
... first of all, I LOVE top-down racers.

That said, I HATE it when they implement weapons in it. I rather want the games to just focus on cool racing and drifting around corners, instead of getting a rocket up my ass...

But even disregarding the weapons, it really doesn't impress graphically. Not only does the fantastic Motorstorm RC look endlessly better, but so does Reckless Racing 2 for iPad and Android!

I'm really happy the old classic genres are getting back in favour by more developers these days, but there's no excuse for games to look like they were made for the PSX/Saturn.

Got to agree, this isn't looking that good. and couldn't you donate a bubble or two, it's really frustrating trying to have a conversation with only two bubbles.

edit: I wonder what the ratio is between investment and sales. It would be interesting to find that out. A game like this might not sell as much as Journey but, by the looks of it, the investment wasn't even close to that incredible game. I suppose the best way of explaining what I mean is: £1 for £3 payback V £10 for £30 payback... We sometimes overlook that when we compare sales figures, myself included to be honest, but could it be that it's actually worth making crap?

Yeah, I'm in agreement with the both of you. Graphically wise, that's pretty PS1 looking. And I normally could care less about graphics.

Hopefully, this game stands out on fun factor. But it better be damn high with that fun factor with inexcusable graphics like this.

You guys do realize this is a downloadble title right? It looks about the same as motorstorm RC. I like it.

Same, only reason why I gave RC an honest try was due to the easy plat. But joke was on me because I still play this game long after I achieved my initial goal.

Have you played any decent PSN games by any chance? If you think that quality is representative of a downloadable game then clearly you can't have.

Being a downloadable title is no excuse. The bar has been raised on that LONG ago. And this does NOT look the same as Motorstorm RC

This actually looks really fun to me.
