MotorStorm Apocalypse developer Evolution Studios has said that they're "pushing the PlayStation 3 as hard as (they) can" to provide players with an experience that "no racing game has been able to offer before".
Thats awesome the Motorstorm series is so underrated. Im really hopin this one sells better.
Me too. Motorstorm is a riot and deserves some attention. I'm also happy to see devs getting the most out of this gen. Five years in is typically where a console like the PS3 and 360 will hit their true potential. Particularly the PS3 with its unique architecture. Full Optimization simply takes time and effort and we are finally seeing the full benefit of that this gen. This is a good time to game.
But I have a question.....Are Motorstorm's tracks generally "circular" or are the tracks generally a point A to point B? Thanks
They are point A to B but there are multiple paths you can take. Some vehicles can only go on certiain routes. Check this out...
^I would consider the Mototstorm series to have the best track design of any racer, specially Pacific Rift, each track has many paths to the finish line, some paths are better suited for certain types of vehicles, so yea, they are circular with laps, but varied.
Enough with this non-sense. alot of developers sayed this, but the thing is, its all about OPTIMIZATION. You can squees everything out of the ps3, but still have a crappy looking game, because its not optimized. Look at Killzone 2. Used the PS3's full power, but with killzone 3, they found ways to optimize the game even more, so it still uses the same power, but is alot more optimized, so ends up looking better! I can make a Custom Crysis 1 map on my PC, with so many visual effects in it, so it uses my PC's full power. And yet, the original Crysis maps still end up looking better, while using the same amount of power
But optimization is a part of, getting the game to work. So if They use as much power they can get, and optimize it to run smoth then THEY archiewed getting close to 100% Optimization is a part of getting the 100%
^Above. True that, but every developer says it, while barely even optimizing it. This game looks great though
I wonder if it'll have snow.
bring it on EVO , im ready !!!
I actually never got around to playing any of the series very much. Just played the first one for a very short little while. I hope the game does well.
Motorstorm is a lot of fun, really looking forward to getting my hands on the new game.
'Yeah!!!!! Squeeze it baby!!!!!'. Hmmmmm...... that didn't sound very good did it?
Nice, Kz3 and Motorstorm ringing the PS3 dry which is always good. Ill be expecting Sucker punch's announcement about ringing the PS3 dry as well. Naughty Dog will not need to make one since it is already given.
Loved the original that came bundled w/ my 80gb PS3. Pacific Rift is an incredible game as well. Looking forward to Evo's next MS title and a day 1 buy for me!
No wonder, all those constant set-pieces surely are a technical hurdle.
My favorite arcade style racer right next to Burnout. Looking forward to this and looks like it might be the best in the series.
day one buy, loved motorstorm 1 pacific rift is the bolox
Can you say day one?
I can, this is going to be my first Motorstorm title too.
Destruction, explosions and as many particles possible...that's all I ever read. It's an arcade off-road racer, not a destructionderby. I remember Monument Valley being quite solid and low on particles in March 2007 yet it had some of the best multi-routes tracks of the series. Roaming the Grizzly, Dust Devil or the Gulch in a rallycar, online with the other gods and legends, those were the days:) Now it looks like too much over the top action to me, too much focussed on the scenery and the kaboom's and whatever, but with less attention to the tracks, the actual racing or the differences between vehicletypes. Everything that made MotorStorm great. I mean, I don't need a QTE button for some truck that explodes, just let it explode, or not, but please let me focus on the race. I sure hope there will still be some descent racing possible in all this mayhem, the series does have the racingmechanics right.
This will be the best Motorstorm yet...
