It's GRID, not GRiD.

EDiT: beaten to it.

At least they're not RPG titles that don't make any sense and sound stupid, like "Infinite Undiscovery."

Dirt you can associate with rally, grids and fuel with racing in general, but an infinite undiscovery? What the hell does it even mean?


I said the same thing over on GR, and was promptly ignored.

I didn't ignore you, I just chose not to respond. :P Let's make a topic on this subject!

It looks quite impressive actually, could be very promising indeed.
However, one shot of expansive landscape just showed the same texture repeated and repeated and repeated, that bit didn't look too nice, but it's still WIP.

So with Pure and FUEL Motorstorm gets owned twice :o

This actually looks damn good. And reminds me I need to pick up GRID. Where is the cheapest place to buy GRID by the way?

Far as I know, ShopTo.net has it cheapest at £31.98.

It's $40 on Steam, if you're a PC man.

Fuel sounds pretty interesting but the developers seem never to have heard of Test Drive Unlimited.

Fuel developer, in thick French accent, said not wrote:Never before 'ave you been abool to drive anywhere you want.

Think again, mon ami!

Pure and FUEL look loads better than Pacific Rift. Which is what I was meaning anyway.

This looks interesting, but I'm just wondering if they have played GTA IV or Burnout Paradise when they're making claims like those in the video.

In the looks department, yes - Pure is among the best I've seen this generation, having said that - I'll reserve my judgement until I have Pacific Rift hooked up in HD.

Just for the record, In terms of gameplay, I don't think Pure'll match Motorstorm.

Just to chip in... This isn't actually being developed by Codies Racing Studio. The team behind it are 'Asobo Studios' (based in France, don'tcha know...).

So has the new Motorstorm upped their game yet? I wasn't expecting much going into that video but came quite impressed. Are there any new vids of Motorstorm?

Motorstorm are just throwing about some gameplay ones, I'd predict Leipzig will bring more.
