    Just purchased Wreckfest and have played it for 30 minutes now of which 29 minutes I've laughing my behind off. What fun game!

    Who else has this?

  2. I do but, I haven't tried it lately. I think it's quite entertaining and there will be much to explore. This should be great for times when I need a break from the more serious stuff.:)

    I've got it in my inventory, but haven't been around enough to test it yet. Looking forward to a real *ahem* wreckfest riot with this one :D
  4. I also have it and have been occasionally poking at it every now and then. Unlike previous FlatOut titles I am finding it easier to control with a wheel than gamepad so far, but I have not spent too much time on dirt tracks yet.

    I think it would be pretty cool if there were enough people to get some races going. That, or Carmageddon: Reincarnation. Show those track marshals who is boss! hehehe
    Carma is farther away than NCG: Wreckfest though.

    *raises hands*
    Is MP working?
    I really want a 30 car carnage! With the latest build I do suffer from really low framerates which has not been the case before.
    Waiting for a new version...

    I have this too. We should set up a RD server some night :thumbsup:
  8. I caved in with this weekend's special offer. €18 was apparently below my impulse buy threshold for semi sims :)

    To have something to compare it to, I started up DiRT Showdown before buying to refresh my memory of that horrible blemish to DiRT's good name. There are less differences in the FFB and physics than I expected between Wreckfest and DiRT Showdown. Cars seem pretty glued to the road in both, FFB (through my T500) provides gentle hints of what the car is doing in both. But Wreckfest is otherwise a far more mature game than Showdown, and I like the tracks more too.

    Looking forward to trying out the broad selection of tracks: I'm pleased with the number of options available to actually indulge in contact-racing, as compared to demolition arenas which are definitely not my thing....

    P.S. Don't worry, I didn't buy Showdown: it came free with GRiD Autosport preorder.

    edit: after more time, the FFB has grown on me, as has the physics. This is a lot better than DiRT Showdown even at this early stage :)

    Its good fun! Had it a while now but not spent much time on it really. When multiplayer works its great fun, really nice for something different and less 'serious'.. I'd 100% be in for some club race's if RD decide to hold any... at least it would (help) hide my skill deficit...:D

    Single player is fantastic and i enjoyed a lot. But MP seems to be a bit problematic with lag and ping issues (maybe just for me). If worked smooth, multiplayer could be a fantastic experience and i would love a RD club event!

    I can confirm it is a good laugh if anything :D Mind you though that the game is still in alpha/beta/whatever and quite far from a polished, finished product. Nevertheless it has a working single & multiplayers and I love them both. Handling isn't particularly good imo at the moment but they are working on an improved tyre physics now so it will get A LOT better in the coming months.
    GET IT NOW that it's on sale :thumbsup:

    Just bought :D Downloading now, will give it a first shot after the CSGO grand finals :p
    Always had a good laugh with FlatOut as well so I think this is somewhat a must

    EDIT: Does it work well with G27? :p

    That would be lots of fun @Paul Bennett. But for that we need extra staff members to setup the events on regular basis. :)
