Got a pre-order in. I have this weird feeling it might actually end up being good, so I'll take one for the team and give it a go. Anyone else pre-ordering it or am I going to be ranging that fucking huge empty desert on my tod?

Why are we still waiting for a next-gen Rollcage update? Surely that should be a priority?

I really want this game to be good and given how forgiving I can be of driving models when the world is right (see TD:U), I don't think I'm going to be disappointed with this one

Not too fussed about a lack of demo but a lack of press mumblings about it, beyond the odd free-lunch-at-codies-spooge-fest - that's got me slightly more worried.

I think KG did the hands-on for EG didn't he?

Might be an idea to cancel any pre-orders and maybe pick it up cheap if EG's review is anything to go by.

The reason for the lack of a demo is probably all too clear.

Bugger, that's a pity.

Ah well, I'm going to take one for the team on this one then all the same. I've got bugger all to play now I'm done with InFamous..!

Ah well....

Might I suggest this would be an excellent time to crack out (matron) our underplayed copies of GRiD?

Mmm some GRID sounds like an idea, open wheel racing is groovy.

I'm glad I didn't trade my copy.

Hmm, even though the preorder for this is only 27 that sounds a little too broken for my liking.

Following the news about Dirt 2's intentional b0rking this is a tad disappointing :-(

Having bought the last couple of NFS games I figure that there's at least room for one more really shite racing game in my collection. If the MMO bits of this work out as well as I hope they will, it might more than make up for Tom's impressions of it being a bit on the mediocre side. Wish Codies weren't such stingy twunts with their preview code.

I wouldn't use "I Pity the Fuel" as a tag line because I'm bloody sure just about every other site out there will do.

I was also thinking of "I'll be a Fuel for your lovin no more" but I doubt anyone's ever come across that hoary old song.

This could almost become a thread in its own right if everyone wasnt' at each other's throats on EG again today.

So we could have:

"What kind of Fuel?" from All About Eve
"Kissing a fuel" from George Michael

Any more for any more?
