Now the only question that anyone cares about: Will this stuff explode?

Was it me or did they have someone jumping out of a helicopter and onto a quad bike. lol

I guess getting back to doing car games properly was too much work?

Instead, we'll get some crazy X-Games style mish-mash where the physics will be admittedly wonky "because a true simulation just wouldn't be as fun" in a bikey-jumpy-parachuty style game.

First person view? Pass.

Maybe if I had seen a bit of crash physics I might have gotten excited, but I guess I need to hope for a crash mode mod for BeamNG or that game called "Truck Stop" by Projector Games.
