MX Simulator

If Trials 2 has given you a taste for trail bike trashing, do investigate indy motocross sim MX Simulator. Bike handling in the two-track demo is infuriating right up until the point you realise that the default 100% 'stability' setting (found in Bike Setup) is what's causing the Kawasakis and Hondas to turn like sulky supertankers. Once you've adjusted stability to a more sensible level (40% seems…

Prices Venting: Steam Sale On

And a quick one from me too. While we really will be digging into the whole UK/US/EU pricing thing in the new year, that can wait until after Steam's new year sale. Basically, it's up to 75% savings off a mass of games. It's on until January 2nd, so I suspect I'll go through picking out the best bargains before then, but the first thing…

Trials 2 Interview and Compo

We've talked about Trials 2 a lot, we know. So we figured that it was about time we actually shut up and listened a little, and see what Red Lynx, the creators of Trials 2 had to say. A tag team of Creative Director Antti Ilvessuo and CEO Tero Virtala worked hard to answer our questions, speaking in a singular voice we will call RED…

Wheelie Good News: Trials 2 on Steam

This is proving to be a splendid day for things that RPS like. Following on from the news that there is something beyond Beyond Good And Evil, news reaches us that the gloriously hyper-difficult Red Lynx Trials 2: Second Edition is now available on Steam for ten dollars. In fact, there's a dollar off if you order now. Since we've ranted about it previously on…

Why Finns like people falling over…

Old comrade Oskar Skog mentions that his Swedish bunch of readers have done an pile-on interview with RedLynx about recent RPS-celebration subject Trials 2. It's answering a bunch of questions from their readers, and - in the spirit of international goodwill - it's written in English, not Swedish. To reciprocate next month RPS will have Swedish Posting Week, where we'll have a shot of doing…

Non-Trial New Trials Version

And if you can't decode that particularly labyrinthine syntax, "New patch for RPS fave Trials 2". The full details are here, but the two biggest changes directly answer a couple of my reservations. They've reworked the game so it accepts downloadable content, and to show off have added five courses to the full game. Four easy, and one dynamic, the former of which helps with…

Eurogamer: Trials 2 review

We've gone crazy-ranting about it before, but Eurogamer paid me to write a review of Redlynx Trials 2: Second Edition. As always, I have a leeeetle bit of a rant, and hang it off some grand theory of nonsense. Here's a bit of it... But playing Trials 2 made me wonder whether the tide's reversing in another area. In the same way that PC owners…

I Like Bike! – Trials 2: Second Edition

Okay, we blogged about it yesterday before we had a chance to actually play it. Now, I have and can only concur with the excited people in the comments threads. This is brilliant, and a perfect example of how a modern approach can rejuvenate even the most venerable of arcade games. But before I talk about that, something about my bladder. Now, I tend to…
