@ limbomaster - LMAO, not gonna lie though, if this does turn out to be a game like the classic burnout games, I am gonna check it out... But it most likely won't have Road Rage, Crash more, nor the ability to throw your driver out the window... also, it's gotta be split-screen.
When i saw the logo i instantly thought of NFS Underground. This game doesn't strike me as anything new.
[Namco staff on a meeting to plan their new game] -Hey what will be our next game? -I have an -ORIGINAL- idea: let's make a burnout game and shove the name Ridge Racer on it!!! -Yeah!!!! i LOVE your -Original- idea... we could even copy the format of NFS logos to make a logo for our -original- ridge racer!!!!!
God, even the logo screams RIP OFF!!!!! Namco are using the name "Ridge Racer" to sell what should be a "new" IP. It could be fun yeah, BUT betther than any of the games tehy are copying: HELL NO! the next burnout will smash them for good.
