World of Speed Takes To Moscow For Gameplay Footage

We've seen car preview videos galore, but finally the Slightly Mad Studios guys have graced us with some actual gameplay footage from World of Speed.

The nearly four-minute long video shows off the RUF RK Coupe and Mercedes SLS in all their brightly colored glory as they race through the streets of Moscow, the city's towering spires reflected on the autos' gleaming hoods. The race took place during a community livestream, so it's refreshingly "imperfect" -- there's bumping and skidding and a general lack of polish (including the murder of an innocent traffic cone at 40 seconds) that you'd expect from a real race, as opposed to something carefully selected by the marketing department to show off a game's perfect brilliance.

Of course, lots of racing games look nice. We won't know for a while still whether World of Speed plays nice, but you can sign up for the beta on the game's website and hopefully find out for yourself.

The reason they fail is because they littered with horrible F2P children. Back in 2006, I played to escape real life. I was able to socialize with other players, bitch about my day whatever. Playing the game was never about reaching end game really fast and killing everyone in the server. It was about chillin and venting your problems away. People actually were positive and gave you feedback. good feedback... Now its like " too bad.. I suggest killing yourself, but first can I have your stuff ?" ... so I just quit. --

Hell, I didnt mind the pay to win, or how bad the game was, it was just a place to go and have some me time. Now, you cant have that anymore.. Anyway, a game I am eyeballing right now is albion online. I have not got a key for it, but I would like to give it a try because it may offer what im looking for.. a cross between runescape/ultma online maybe ? We shall see.

I don't really see how this game brings anything new whatsoever to the genre.
