Today the staff at Evo are doing a little dance and breathing a huge sigh of relief. For today is the day of our fist gold master candidate, which as I write this is winging its way to assorted testers around the world ready for them to give MotorStorm: Pacific Rift one last hammering. This isn't the end, chances are there still a few bugs to be fixed, but we've finished dessert, and are now just waiting for coffee and the bill. Phew.
But rather than browsing through vacation brochures, I thought this impasse would be best spent writing a few blog posts which answer some of the questions that have been floating around the internet about Pacific Rift. The first one of which I noticed is how many people I've seen decrying the fact the lovely little pause camera from the first game isn't present in the recent demo.
Well guess what? We've taken it out because we've introduced a photo mode to the main game, essentially the old pause camera on steroids. Hopefully it will be a good substitute and give your greasy little paws something to do while the game is paused, other than just going to the khazi. No doubt some of you will probably use it for rubbing our noses into any graphical glitches you may find, or taking comedy pictures of dismounted drivers looking like they're humping trees, but hopefully more of you will use it for grabbing some ace action pictures of the carnage and destruction we've worked so hard to give you in the game. You see we like the carnage in MotorStorm.
