That looks superb.

Do you know if they're going to support wheels this time? I much prefer controlling driving games with a wheel rather than an xBrick controller.

Re: Trackmania 2: Canyon In-Depth Hands-On Preview

Great preview. This turned out to be one of the highlights of E3 for me. It was not only easy to get to grips with but hugely fun and very easy to get hooked on.

Our hands-on time with the game ended up running a little over schedule as neither of us could tear ourselves away from the title. I must admit that we're a little sceptical about the decision to release individual environments, which seems like a move to maximise revenue. Time will tell and the developers have a great relationship with their community.

This was easily the best driving game from E3 as well as one of the most promising of any genre.

Re: Trackmania 2: Canyon In-Depth Hands-On Preview

Honestly, I don't think you'd gain anything by using a steering wheel. I actually think it would make the game harder and you'd probably destroy the wheel in the process

Great preview, I can't wait for this one to come out.

...I really need to download Nations again, thanks for reminding me

Hehe yes good times! Nadeo later had this to say to us about the pricing (taken from our Maniaplanet article):

"For a passerby, it is more attractive, with an entry price of 20euros. It is the best business model we could think of, to be easy on players' purses and keep our work efficient. The bottom line for players remains the same: 20euros for a game. We hope it will be seen as fair, regarding the work put in the game”.

I think it's a fair point considering how much re-playability and extra effort Nadeo put into their games with free continued support and updates, just now it's the extra environments that players will have to choose to pay extra for. Off the top of my head I think the only developer better value for money is Valve.

Thanks for your comment! Regarding control input, I think it's a case of personal preference - for me I can only imagine using a game controller nothing else, but for others it's the keyboard, joystick or steering wheel!

Actually thanks for reminding me as well that as Nations is free it is a good way to see what Trackmania is about for real, or to simply go back and race whenever the feeling arises

Re: Trackmania 2: Canyon In-Depth Hands-On Preview

Just a small update from what I've found out over the past week:

Trackmania 2: Canyon will have steering wheel, joystick, pad and of course keyboard support.

The Maniaplanet games (i.e. Trackmania 2: Canyon) will be digital download only. Any more details on this are limited until closer to release, but hopefully with Ubisoft as publisher the downloading process shouldn't be too painful for those of us with slow downloading speeds/caps.
