In January 22, 2011, I posted edit that Team6 got the green light, then out of nowhere, February 05, 2011, Bugbear release trailer for the new Ridge Racer Unbounded they are working on.Purple44 said:Want a new Flatout for the PC? If yes, then we need your help.
Shadow sent me a link to a new Flatout for the Wii that being work on by Team6:
After checking out these links, thought I should find out if there will be a PC version. I found out Team6 will need to get a green light form Zoo Games before they could get going on a new PC version of Flatout.
So this where we need the help of the Flatout community, please take the time to send an email to Zoo Games, asking Zoo Games to please give Team6 the green light to make a PC version of the new Flatout for the Wii. Here a link to contact page:
Here link to some pics of new Flatout for the Wii:
Edit: It been confirm that Team6 has gotten the OK from Zoo Games to make a better, bigger version of Flatout for the PC!!
You're making your own game? What the hell man, make a new thread for it and tell me all the details. I have just one question for now. That is, are there derbies in it? And if so, can I talk to you about it?psychicparrot said:OK. Here is what I think about Team6... hopefully this won't cause arguments!!
I've finished Flatout3 (!) and quite enjoyed it. It's nowhere near Flatout or RR, but it is still quite fun if you try to forget that it's the death of a really awesome franchise!
I was truly devastated when Flatout3 turned out to be a turkey, but you know what? If I'd paid $5 for it I'd be happy. The problem is that FO3 is being sold as a AAA game when it's clearly a budget title.
Maybe I'm more sympathetic because I've been working on my own racing game for over a year now and it's nowhere near a big title. For a one man game, I'm pleased with what I've managed to do and I really hope that people who buy my *budget* game will enjoy it - I enjoy playing it, so in terms of 'making a game I want to play' I've succeeded, which is the goal of pretty much any indie game developer! Anyway, I'm slipping away from the point.. I know how much work goes into these games and for a small team on a low budget, Flatout3 is quite cool... but it should have been a Bugbear title because they understand what makes the franchise work and can do amazing things with a game engine, car models and smashable scenery!!
I don't hate Team6 and I love the creativity that it takes to do what they do, regardless of whether or not it's a success.
The reason we all have such negative feelings toward them is because of what the publisher did to our Flatout series (which is unforgivable but no fault of Team6 I think) - I like that they love racing games as much as we do, even if they didn't yet manage to make a competitor for Flatout
That's what I think, anyway!
