Motor Storm Hands-On

IGN climbed behind the wheel of the latest build of MotorStorm to give the mud-caked racer a thorough going over and (off)road-test its garage of turbo-charged gas-guzzlers to the limit.

The same track i been seeing for the last 2 years.

i know you 360 boys like to point out the current flaws, but before you do, keep in mind that the game is still not complete yet. the game is in it's polish/balance stage right now and those speed issues and other bugs should be fixed by the time the game is released.

The one valid complaint: This game is sslllloooowwww.... it needs a boost on the order of 2x-4x as fast to get up to interesting speeds. This does concern me greatly...

The game seems to have a very stable framerate, a very stable build, and very solid action. But under the hood, it's moving at about a fourth of the speed it should be going.

Why, exactly, would a dev make a game at a slower pace, and then suddenly ratched up the game's base speed in the last month or so of development? Would EVERYTHING turn out wrong in the end? The animations and gravity are set perfectly right now... speed up the game, and everyone would look like they were going in fast-motion on normal-speed autos.

And if the game needs to be sped up, does that mean we're going to see cuts in graphics and framerate to accomodate all the action that's going to suddenly be pushing on the processor when this happens?

Something smells really, really fishy around this "speed" issue.

Dude, this isn't Burnout, haha. I think it needs to be about 40% faster, max. IGN was basically testing the TGS version in their offices and Evolution Studios is listening to people's complaints. They're making the final version of the game faster than what we saw at TGS so everything should be fine by then.

This looks really good. Too bad I hate off-road racers but this game looks very realistic.

So Sony has 1 catagory in the winnign league and it's the racing genre something Ms always fails at!

PlayStation 3 Games That Desperately Need a PS5 Remaster

The PlayStation 3 may not have been the strongest generation for Sony, but there were still some diamonds in the rough that deserve a revisit as PS5 remasters.

Even if they could just remaster and put on PSVR2, some would still look great as VR titles and could do a whole lot to bolster the headset w these exclusives! I'd imagine the investment of reworking these titles into VR would be way less than building new games from the ground up, and they could be amazing experiences, and VR often makes flat games feel fresh again. The Resistance and Killzone games are particularly what I want to see!!

I played killzone 3 in 3d and it really changed the game per being immersive.
In vr, that would be even more awesome.

Funny you mention that... my son wanted to play some PS3 games in 3d on my PS tv and he was blown away by how good KZ3 was. It really was a great addition to the game. Im surprised there have not been more 3d games from that era being ported to the PSVR/VR2.

Killzone trilogy in VR would be amazing bonus points if they offer shadow fall.

There was a psvr1 Killzone project that supermassive was working on at one stage which wasn't up to scratch and Sony brand it back in house I was hoping we would see that on psvr2 eventually.

Personally I'd love to see some more love or acknowledgement of psvr2 from Sony in general it was a expensive headset and Sony barely acknowledge it's existence

The amount of work needed to remaster these games wouldn't be beneficial on a financial and business sense.. MGS4 would probably be the best bet as it would need the least amount of work!

Iceball2000128d ago

YEAAASSSSS! I miss this franchise and wanna play it so bad again.

Father__Merrin128d ago

The time is perfect for a resistance fall of man game campaign coop multiplayer

InUrFoxHole128d ago

The resistance series is str8 trash to me. Socom 3 I would welcome. Or killzone MP.

Marcus Fenix128d ago

A Resistance reboot will be awesome

Michiel1989128d ago

That's what Bungie should make, Ill keep saying it until it happens

1Victor128d ago (Edited 128d ago )

Resistance was ok but Warhawk and Starhawk was better and kept me coming back for almost a decade of fun and petty revenge on the loud mouth unskilled players 🤣
Edit I loved capture the flag dropping the pot on the flag carrier was extremely satisfying as well as transforming your plane in bot form and stumping them to death 😱

Resistance was the best co-op fps I ever played after L4D2
