I know it breaks your arbitrary "no old games" embargo, but just get this for under a fiver and play Flatout 1 and 2. Ignore 3 as its made by some no-name Russian gooseberry fool devs.

Sorry guys, but if there's a chance of playing a modern version of Flatout UC on the XB1 then I'm in the "Take my money" camp.

Discounted price of £16.64 ($20) means it's not a huge investment.

Tempted. I did enjoy Flatout on the 360.

Kind of excited by this. Loved the Destruction Derby games back in the day, and the early Flatout games. Could be one of those situations where gaming has moved on but I’ll definitely give it a go.

The trailer makes me want a new Stuntman game for some reason but I’m pretty sure that’s never happening.

That looks pretty cool; like how I remember Destruction Derby but in today's gaming world. It's out on Thursday (!) for PC so, as a console player, this could be a chance to see if the game is gonna be worth looking out for come November.

The game's pretty solid, its just taken them years to get it out the door. I haven't touched it in months but will give it another go soon.

Also that trailer was a bit cringey.

This is the year, folks. THIS. IS. THE. YEAR.


Dude, it sounds like it may be worth taking a look at this. Eurogamer said "a true successor to the brilliant Destruction Derby" and awarded it a [RECOMMENDED] ranking.

I'll be purchasing on PS4 for sure.



Watching this clip reminds me more of a next gen Destruction Derby Raw, which had a similar setting and style of car.

Redownloaded this again, and it's much better than the state it was in last time I played. Menus are much more navigable, and the range of modes on offer is huge, by the looks of it.

Still runs like turd on my laptop, though. It didn't look that demanding, so I assume it's just poor optimisation, but you'd think after the length of time this has spent in development, they'd have that better by now.

Guaranteed purchase.

£26.85 at Base.com.
So preordered hoping to recapture the hilarious, glorious Flatout days online.
Avon, buy on PS4.

Flatout is/was so much fun with a wheel. I've got such fond memories of playing it on a LAN and just hunching over my keyboard crying with laughter at the others piling up on a figure of 8 track.

Here’s hoping online options are configurable so we can set up a set of races. Probably one of my favourite ever online gaming phase when we ran the Flatout Tournaments.

I think we need to have a GRCade championship for this.
I have both PS4 and Xbox so don't mind which version we play on.

Can we add a list of who has what machine in the opening post please?
