Recentl started playing smash cars for Ps2. This is a pretty fun arcade racer. Unlock new RCs and tracks as  you go witht he ability to upgrade the cars. I absolutely suck at the stunt mode though.

Afro and myself played a ton of GT5/6 on ps3, and we play project cars now and then on ps4.  We race pretty seriously, realistic parameters.

Dude this game is the fucking tits. The stunt mode used to frustrate the shit out of me. The second stunt race in the offroad park is fucking insane. Theres one of those "500" point bonuses on top of a stack of barrels that is borderline impossible to reach.

EDIT: Sorry about the ridiculous size, you may need to zoom out on your browser. The forum did not size the pictures to fit in the space nicely

So I've been working on a low poly RC racing game on my spare time. I have three cars made so far, and I'm texturing a fourth as we speak. I want to at least get 10 done before I get serious.

I love Smash Cars, and Re-Volt, and I tried to emulate the style as much as possible. The models are all flat shaded, which means all of the detail you see on the car is texture based.

Lots of designs are inspired from 90's RC cars from back in the day. Some cars had a huge impact on my personal life, and I wanted to "immortalize" them in digital space.

This is the VICE-8600, and is a direct inspiration from the 90s Tyco Countach which is super collectible today.

...

This is Embargo, based heavily on the style of vehicles in the 70s known as "street machines". Also an obvious reference to the oil crisis, because I am a history nerd.

...

Lastly we have the Vestman-Heavyduty, which is based off of my great uncle's 94 Dodge Ram. He passed away in 2013, but his truck is still in the family.
He always had a navy blue work vest on, and could talk your ear off any day of the week.

...


I'll keep you guys updated, but I really hope this project goes somewhere. Wish me luck.

Slam, dig the work man. I still think your work on the TMSB school bus character is amazing. I have a fascination with RC Car games too, so I think these are awesome. Keep up the work. And dont forget to add a homage to the Clodbuster in the game!(;

On the topic of RC/toy racers, Micro Machines: World Series will be releasing soon. Actually, it should have released yesterday, but a few days ago it got pushed back for some reason. After seeing some of the gameplay recently, the game seems awfully slow and nothing that seems too deep compared to the original Micro Machines games. I don't have high expectations, but I plan on trying it and hopefully it'll be some lighthearted fun to relieve some stress with a bit of competition still present.

Grind your heart away.



Kinda excited for this one due to the addition of boats and planes and the fact they geared the game more towards fun than the MMO grind fest that was the first one..though still gonna be a grind fest.

I'm most excited for the boat racing. I haven't seen a good boat racer since Hydro Thunder. Many have attempted but failed.

VR Sports Powerboat Racing, loved this game as a kid, but I'll admit it's not that great.)

...

TurboProp Racing, Only played a little of and the controls are TRASH.

...

And lastly Aquadelic GT,Which is decent at best. I had some fun with it.

...

I'm hoping all the vehicles have fully fleshed out features and the boats and the planes don't feel just tacked on. The boat racing looks like it could be fun, as well as the airplanes, but they do have some grounding in reality as planes and boats race through the usually floating gates from what I've seen.

I don't expect a Bravo Air Race here, but I expect to have some fun. (https://youtu.be/Z6zCUtNUq0g)

So what do you guys think?

I ended up buying this on sale. It was really dull. Not what I expected from a Micromachines game at all.

Yeah, the game design choices were just bizarre. It seemed like most of the efforts in development went into the battle mode, which nobody asked for or wanted in a Micro Machines game. The racing itself was enjoyable but there were so few tracks (even though they were reusing Toybox Turbos assets) and there was barely even an hour's worth of fresh content if racing was all that a person cared about. Plus for being an online game, the matchmaking was completely broken. I bought it at launch and with no lack of trying, I never got to play an event with more than four players (including myself), and the majority of the time it just stuck me in an event by myself against the AI.

I've been eyeing Redout and its various dlcs for a brief bit now, may be my next racing game purchase. I do have the remastered Burnout Paradise and Wipeout Omega, but I really think the recent NFS games have shat the bed as far as what I want out of racing. The Project Cars games seem pretty solid but their releases seem so fractured as far as getting a full product that I wound up waiting 'til they were done with the dlc cycle for the first game before I looked at it....and then all of a sudden there was a Project Cars 2.

Burnout Paradise is still pretty rad, though.

I also have the burnout paradise remaster. I boot it up every once in awhile and mess around with friends, though I don't think I'll be completing it like I did in the past.

I bought Project cars 2 much to my dismay, because it requires a steering wheel to even play half decently. My steering wheel isn't supported by ps4 unfortunately.

Redout is fun, if not wayyy too fast. I got it on clearance at a target for 5 bucks. I like it, but a lot of it is going to be remembering the tracks to a Tee so you can react as quick as possible, because at those speeds a split second means a lot.

NFS shat the bed a long time ago for me. I think the last one I played was most wanted when NFS basically became Burnout.

Played the crew 2 closed beta and had a blast with it.  There are several improvements to the game that make it feel more fun and less monotonous than the first game.

1. Now you can tune every vehicle (Cars, bikes, boats, and airplanes.) To turn on or turn off as many assist as you like as well as usual tunning options as break bias and etc.

2. Handling of the cars is a lot more fun and less "wonky."

3. Since they moved more towards an image of the US than copying the US the races and map is funner to drive around than the old map, such as roof top jumps and etc.

4. A forza style livery editor which is always welcome.

5. Boats and planes are as equally fun to drive/fly.

It's a vast improvement over the original. So if you tried the original and didn't like it I advise trying out the open beta when it comes available.
