Thru Thick & Thin, The Unofficial Motorstorm Survivors

19 replies 8 views Edited Feb 4, 2010

As many of you know, next month marks 3 years of Motorstorm.

And if you count the Demo, 3 years is already here.

 

So who of you have been playing since day 1 ??

Do you have all 3 games ??

Do you still play ??

 

 

I have all the games. MS1 and PR I got on release day(not sure about AE?).

 

Played thru the tapping days, the slow days,

(how many of you knew they speeded up the cars 2 or 3 times after TA was 1st released?)

Then the package deal with the 80 gig really kicked the game back to life.

 

At first, I was worried about Pacific Rift, 

the online lag(still not perfect) was so bad that it was no fun to play.

But the developers fixed that, and game has worked good ever since.

Its really cool racing side by side with people from around the world !!

 

 

I know Speedee1/Sandblasted has been a Motorstormer from day 1.

 

Who else is a survivor ??

MSPR-Mon-Fri am w/ elcheapo, speedee1 & others,

MV-not so much, although I did get my arse handed to me this morning by cheap & speedee, lol.

AE-kinda lost intrest in it. Would have been better on the PS3 platform, or as add on tracks for MSPR

I bought both MS games for ps3 on day 1. I never really competed on MS1 on TA and I only have a few hundred races online but I had fun. The tapping days were really fun but it killed my thumb. :smileytongue: I haven't played all the way through though obviously, MS1 I stopped after a few months and I bought PR, played it for a few weeks and got distracted with other games. Came back to it around June and have played it primarily since then.

I played the MS1 demo at Circuit City when the PS3 first launched. 

 

That game was the reason I Purchased my PS3 way back when.  Bought MS1 on release date and bought MSPR on release date. 

 

Purchased a second PS3 back while playing MS1 so my son and I could play online at the same time.  Still play MSPR as much as I can.

I picked up the PS3 about a year after the launch. Motorstorm was the first game I bought. I was addicted, it reminded me of a game I used to play in the late 90's - early 00's called Powerslide which was my all time favourite racing game. Check out these youtube clips

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBZN5ieQpjU 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZclIgW1XZc 

 

Motorstorm was the closest that any game had come to giving me the same level of thrill and fun that Powerslide used to give me. I played it and enjoyed it thoroughly for about a year before Pacific Rift came out, and since then I have never gone back. Pacific Rift is now my favourite off road racer of all time. Yes it has it's problems, but they don't affect me that much because I race mostly in custom rooms and time attack.

 

I never picked up Arctic Edge because I don't own a PSP or PS2. I was tempted to pick up a cheap PS2 just to play this, but I guess I didn't think it was worth it. I like my HD gaming.

 

So, I guess you could call me a Motorstorm Survivor. I've never given up on this game and continue to play it more than any other game I own. I eagerly await the next Motorstorm in the series and hope it is even better than Pacific Rift (and without the problems that made so many leave the game).

 I have been playing the motorstorm(S) since first out.  I loved the tappy tap days.  The speed you could reach was unbelievable and you had to readjust to getting around the tracks.  When they took it away, it felt like you were crawling.  Lots of people left the game when that happened.  Rockhopper was my favorite track and still is.  The 2 times I played MS1 since the release of MSPR it was 99% hopper races. 

 

I bought MSPR on day 1 and it turned out to be "my" favorite of the 2.  I still play it a couple times a week and I actually have more races played then MS1.  Never reached 10K on MS1 but I'm real close if not past it now on MSPR.

Cool videos Heiseman! How did I miss that game??

 

A friend and I were addicted to Screamer 2 from a couple years earlier. We used to compete for hours trying to beat each other's time trials. I tried other racing games over the years (Driver, NFS, Midnight Club) but nothing ever seemed as fun as that.

 

10 years later, he picked up a PS3 and Motorstorm. I used to hang out with him and watch him beat people online. It looked like the greatest racing game of all time to me. When MSPR came out I finally caved and picked up my own PS3 and PR. Then I got obsessed and just HAD to get better than him
