If you think the idea of weaponized supercars is a good one, then you might want to check out this new trailer for Gas Guzzlers: Combat Carnage.
I don't know if "combat racing" is very widely accepted as a videogame genre, but it certainly should be. Guns and cars go together like Mel Gibson and skin-tight leather pants on a shimmering Australian highway, after all, and if you don't believe that then allow me to draw your attention to the new trailer for Gas Guzzlers: Combat Carnage, the driving/shooting/blowing things up game from Croatian studio Gamepires that'll put the slug in your kneecap.
Gas Guzzlers will feature a wide range of cars fighting it out on more than 100 miles of racetracks of all sorts. As usual with this kind of game, you'll begin your career in a clunker, racing for the small purses that will allow you to upgrade your machine until you can run with the big boys. Progress in the game will unlock new tracks, cars and challenge categories, and of course the money needed to stay on top in an increasingly competitive field.
Will it be a high-end, high-fidelity supercar racing simulator? Probably not. But it looks pretty, it looks fast and most important of all, it looks like it might be fun. We'll find out soon enough - Gas Guzzlers: Combat Carnage is due out this spring for the PC.
