42w ago - I-Friqiya Executive Producer Skander Djerbi has shared a video today spotlighting the upcoming tactical action racing game coming to PSN called Fuel Overdose below.
To quote: In 2010, we started the development of Fuel Overdose with the ambition of offering a new kind of solo and multiplayer action racing experience, by bringing more variety to the combat gameplay as well as a tactical approach to the genre. That's why we like to think of Fuel Overdose as a "Tactical-Action-Racing" game.
Our first decision was to go for a top-down/isometric perspective, as we wanted to have a camera system that gives you the innovative features that make Fuel Overdose feel unique. Today, with the first official trailer, we're introducing the racing component of the game.
When we decided to go for a top-down/isometric camera system, we pulled our old consoles out of the closet to try to recapture the spirit of classic racing games. We immediately remembered that what we loved about them is that balance between the immediate fun they deliver and the depth of their gameplay.
With Fuel Overdose, we want to deliver a game that walks the line between arcade and simulation. In order to show their edge, the best drivers will have to master many different vehicles, each with its own specific handling.

264w ago - Speaking to ButtonBandits.com, Chief Game Designer Ralph Fulton has said that he believes forthcoming title GRID is the most exciting racing game ever made and that competing titles such as Forza and Gran Turismo are all about the car list rather than racing.
When asked if he was pleased development was now over and how he thought the final product had shaped up Ralph said "we have been desperate to get everything into it we wanted to get into it and I think we're all really pleased now the dust has settled on it with the product we've got.
I think it's a really exciting racing game, I'd go as far to say it's the most exciting racing game ever made, it looks stunning and I think were all going to take a well deserved rest after this."
On comments in forums and online on the number of cars in the game compared to competing titles such as Gran Tourismo and Forza, Ralph said "Yeah I can understand that. When you have competing games like Gran Turismo and Forza, which pride themselves on the car list, there all about the car list, that's their focus. I know Turn 10 have been quite open about the fact that Forza is just really a car list. Which is great for them.
Does it make sense for Codemasters to try and do the...
