You obviously care enough to create an account to spam a troll comment. There are some tossers on this board. I am just glad its only restricted to the two of you. You must really like yourselves.

The point you missed fruity was that this game was not made by Ratbag ex-staff. Yet the news post says it was. Big Ant != old Ratbag.

Whats your problem? Do you find it so hard to belive that someone actually comments on an article about Ratbag actually worked there, or is it just a case of penis envy? Or is it something else? Maybe you felt like a good case of the troll today or similar.

Is this better - Obviously I couldnt have worked at Ratbag, obviously I wasnt there when Midway shut us down and obviously I know nothing at all about the games the ex-ratbaggers are working on / have worked on. And this is true because you obviously know so much about everything. Thanks for making my day, your such a good bloke. <read the sarcasm here>

This game was not made by Ratbag, trust me I worked there. Ratbag is no longer, most of it's art and some coder staff mostly work for Krome Studios these days, and they are most assuredly not working on Dirt Track games.

They were working on a Powerslide sequel, as well as another post-apocalyptic vehicle action game called Scavenger (I think), which sounded kind of cool.

I don't know what to say about this. My major frustration with Ratbag was that after the brilliant "Powerslide" and the very successful "Dirt Track Racing", they then proceeded to keep making the same game over and over and over again.

So I feel a little distressed that having reformed under a new company name, they are yet again doing a dirt track racing game. Especially when their last few didn't really seem to make dramatic improvements on their predecessors, from what I read. I'd love to hear that this one is a big step ahead, but if they're just going to get back into the same old rut then I'm going to have a great deal of difficulty getting interested in their games.

I guess if their target audience is big enough and willing to pay for regular iterations of this style of game, then why not do it, but I wish they'd do something different :/

(That said, I do believe they had some new stuff in the works at Ratbag, and "Powerslide Slipstream" was in development for a while, and I think they just never got the backing they needed to finish those projects, so maybe they're simply making the games they're able to? Either way, it's all kinda frustrating.)

I would buy a decent sequel to Powerslide in a heartbeat. (You hear that, publishers??)
