    Motorstorm Apocalypse is currently free to all PS Plus subscribers so get it downloaded and let's have an evening behind the wheel of a vehicle whilst avoiding crashes, explosions and collapsing buildings!

    I'm expecting to be there but start "short term" promotion whilst one of my colleagues is off sick. So may go to hell in a handcart! I may be in need of some insane driving! ;)

    I should be there. Enjoyed the first game and completed it 100%. Wish there'd been trophies at the time I was such completist.

    I'll hopefully be there too. Better put me down as a provisional though, as we might be going away Friday....

    Is there an online code in the retail box version?
    I can see it being really cheap second hand now that its free to plusers (which i'm not) and might be tempted.

    Just a reminder to folks about this event on Monday evening so that PS Plus subscribers who haven't yet downloaded it can do so in plenty of time.

    Hope to see you there. :)

    I'm on Virgin and they updated my super hub, reports are saying it's corrupting data, got it a couple of days ago so will test it tonight. If it doesn't work I won't be available :(

    Another reminder that this is on tomorrow night, so don't forget to download and install it if you haven't done so already.

    Looking forward to this, I've not played on a driving game in ages. :)

    Just tested this over lunchtime and it plays rather nicely, although I didn't have a clue where I was going with some of the tracks! Comms were very clear too.

    It's a party invite system so Halo & I will be on at 8.30pm and will chuck out invites to those who have signed up. If you've not done so yet, stick your name down so we can invite you too.

    Cheers for the games. Good fun and not a bad turnout either. Plus I got stacks of trophies just for literally playing!! Result!!

    Dont think Shroud is ever going to let me live down my infamous quote of "I'm not very good at this"....

    It was fun but playing reminded me why I dislike motostorm games, no actual track and lots of guess work lol

    Will be at the next event :) with less moaning*

    As if Slaine ;)

    Enjoyed Clarky assuming I had more driving talent than I actually possess and taking him out, it was basically bad luck. A bit like my first two races :lol: .

    Not a bad game, although left driving games behind quite some time back, may appear again who knows :shh: .

    Re: Mon 6 Aug 8.30pm Motorstorm Apocalypse - Vroom Vroom Boo

    An enjoyable evening!

    We had 6 in all playing (me, Halo, Slaine, JKrohn, Clarkyspeaks and Shroud). We had quite a few races, tried the eliminator mode (not so good) and the chase mode. I think chase mode was the best - it's a sort of a repeated elimination mode on the same track with points dished out to the top 5 and the winner being the first to reach 20 points. It added a nice bit of competition and allowed you to get to know the track a bit better due to racing on it several times.

    Comms were pretty good, no problem hearing or talking to anyone. Stability-wise it was a little flaky with a few getting disconnects over the course of the evening.

    As an arcade racer it's OK, not bad for a bit of fun but it's definitely a case of getting familiar with the tracks as the routes aren't always that clear. It's one that I would play again on occasion.
