Racing Apex news
« on: February 20, 2020, 04:02:19 am »
Lucky Mountain Games just sent out an email to subscribers about some sort of reveal on the 26th Feb, so in like 6 days time. Sigh. I wonder if they'll actually have a release date in there? I wonder if it's going to support CRT... and LAN play. I'll probably grab it regardless :)

This upcoming game looks neat too, a bit of a rival for the Virtua Racing style graphics!

Currently only listed as single player unless I'm missing something..

Personally I think I need a little more graphical detail than that, but maybe it'll have options on that front.

Looks like Sumo Digital are involved too. That's certainly got me interested.

I keep pushing money against the screen but the game isn't coming out.  Looks like outrun 2 mixed with a bit of ridge racer mixed in.

nice work there, Howard :)

I love the look of this one - save that they've changed the design on the porsche, perhaps for copyright reasons. And it's great that they'r working with Sumo. I just worry that this is another reveal that didn't reveal anything. Release date of Q2 will hopefully be something they can meet, i'm tired of racing games that keep on revealing the same things and just never appear. I think we all are, at this point.

Which was perhaps unreasonably negative of me. I hope this one makes it because we're all looking forward to playing it :)

I think with Sumo being involved it feels like a game that will actually materialise at some point.

^This^  Sumo has been reliably releasing a new racer every year or so since outrun 2.  They shouldn't have a problem churning one more out.

Nice. Just skimmed through the article as I'm knackered and just about to go to bed, but it sounds like this Trevor Ley guy has the right sort of arcade racing pedigree for a project like this. Looking forward to this.

Also, and a bit off topic (soz) but as we're talking about old skool Sega games... Is anyone else hyped for Streets of Rage 4? The trailers look brilliant. Such a great idea to ditch any 3D polygon type models and go for the hand drawn 2D look instead. The inclusion of the local 4 player mode is one of the things I'm most excited about.

I think the new look is fairly hideous....I don't get why they'd give such a clean look to a gritty looking series like that.  I'm still excited to play it though.

I think it looks great myself, I think the clean, hand-drawn, cartoon style visuals feels like a natural evolution of the 16 bit pixel art from the Megadrive games. Those games were gritty, but they were never sombre. I guess it's subjective though.

Not really, 16 bit art, particularly 16 bit brawlers used super deep shading and over-exaggerated lines.  The most similar art style today would be in rough colored pencil or heavy color pastels, not a barely shaded, flash game looking style.  The point is it shouldn't be drawn clean because the originals weren't.
