Impressed they listened and came up with a reasonable solution. Too bad I have no interest in this game type.

Will we see this?

Man I hope so. Hope to have the Prat cam back too; driver expressions were great.

This mindless game is right up the alley of all the dumbed down masses of today. It like automatically caters to them, heh.

Hope they don't change a thing from the first and best, Carmageddon 1.

Glad Stainless is behind it and will be very interesting to see what the end product ends up being.

Unless they've been working on it a while now, sounds like it may be a smaller time more budget oriented title. Like 1 or 2 levels and few cars; with more to come as DLC. Sort of like how Live for Speed delivered their product.

Please just don't screw up the free flowing magic that was Carmageddon.

Looks similar to Xcom type gameplay in a simple Tron setting.

Very surprised there is no demo and thus keeps my interest from going much further than this sentence.

Yea, I have run into the same issues trying to reinstall and play both of them. I really wish someone would get ahold of them and make them compatible....

I've actually emailed GOG asking if they would or could please patch up then sell the old Carmageddons, this was their reply:

Hello,

I'm afraid that I can't comment on whether or not we'll be releasing certain titles. I can only assure you that we're doing everything possible to get our hands on the best good old games.


Unfortunately the process is very complex and difficult. Not all publishers wish to sell their back catalog, not all can be convinced that "no DRM" is a good idea, and sometimes it's just plain impossible to research who (if anyone) has the rights to a certain title. Getting an old game to work on modern systems often proves to be the easiest task.

Check out this Q/A video, featuring one of my superiors - Marcin Iwinski, for a first-hand view of how it works:

Finally, please stay tuned and check out our news page every week for new release info.

It does seem odd Rockstar is not interested in the PC platform any more. Perhaps by not as huge a margin, but I'm sure they realize there is extra money to be had on PC. Most all other companies create a PC version when they multi-platform.

Wonder what Rockstar's reasoning is?

Looking at the UI and hud of The Witcher 2, not exactly a big surprise they have a console version coming up so soon. But I'm betting it will be The Witcher 1 instead.

Looks like I'll have to import it if I want to buy it.

I'm all for digital downloads but no DVD version at all in USA, wtf?

Really? This is what gamers out there want?

They planning on mixing FarmVille with WoW and add guns or something?

Call me disappointed. Did not expect this game to turn into a hack action romp.

The trailers fooled me into thinking this would be a more mature suspenseful, clever, survival-ish type game.

Oh well, long live the dumb button mashing.

Hope this game is nothing like the tired CoD crap of today and all about old school, campy, corny, raucous, stereotype, bold, hipster, badass coolness.

I agree. As long as it is awesome and is true to it's predecessors I don't car(e) who makes it.

Staying to the true original will be a huge key factor. Even though Carma3 was very similar, look how Carma3 failed because of it's minor changes.

As was said in a previous thread, I'd be more than happy enough with a HD remake of Carma1.

I completely agree, my question to you is where did you find both C1 & C2 to buy and how did you run them? Still have a comp using win95/98? I would love to play Carmageddon again.

half.com and ebay.com

C2 runs great in compatibility mode as it is more current and engine more up to date.

C1 requires DosBox and has definite frame rate issues in -hires or high yon(.ini draw distance) settings. 3dfx emulation works and allows high resolutions but again at higher gfx settings has frame rate issues. Something in how DosBox works or how the old game engine works doesn't allow our super fast computers of today to make it fly; the game is throttled some how.

According to http://vogons.zetafleet.com/ , currently C1 pretty much still requires actual original hardware to run at decent frame rates if you want extra high settings.

Having recently, last week actually, purchased both C1 and C2. I also prefer the sprites, music and gameplay of C1. While C2 certainly is more polished, easier to run; the missing blood tire tracks, driver audio, driver face expressions, level design and quantity of peds are just better done in C1.

C1 has a more psycho, raw, personal feel to it. C2 starts to feel more like a sanctioned racing, car combat game. C1 feels like madness, randomness, free for all on the streets.

Really excited about this news but I fear the hypersensitive political correctness of today will cause this game to fail.

1. If it's a HD remake of Carmageddon 1, that'd be outstanding.
2. If it's a new game that is true to the core of the originals (Carma1+2, not 3), that'd be awesome.

Anything lesser than the above 2 will be a huge let down.

PC version please!

I'll wait a year or so. If still not out or announced, I'll borrow it from a friend or use a free rent coupon. Trying to not support consoles as much as possible when they don't support PC.
