Stainless got their baby back, threw it at us in 2015 and hit consoles in 2016!

In other news, anyone know if the Max_Damage twitter account is official? Two tweets so far, one hyping up tomorrow and the other is a classic remark about Lewis Hamilton's race on Sunday:

Had a pleasant weekend in Monaco. Getting the gig as Lewis Hamilton's motivational coach has had a marked effect on his driving style.
If you watched the race you'll get the reference, if you haven't then go catch a replay or something because it's one of the most exciting races at Monaco since Senna binned it outside his apartment and disappeared for two days!

Browse caching is a wonderfully misleading thing when it comes to javascript based countdowns :smile:

I'm slacking at home watching the countdown before I head in to work. That's the great thing about freelance web development, I choose my own hours :lol:

Under twenty minutes now!

Hopefully this is the reason why they were so quick to slam that C&D on the guy who was remaking Carmageddon and they weren't just being a bunch of wankers.

Pretty sure that was just Squenix, who are just cocks when it comes to fan made games and remakes. They always slap C&Ds down the moment one starts looking good. The Unreal Chrono Trigger mod looked awesome and they killed that without any plans to do anything with the franchise.

Hehe, I do honestly enjoy all your entusiasm. I'm quite curious myself. Countdows can hype almost anything!

Back to a 40 minute timer?

I'm not sure what 'after a partner' means, but sounds like it's still pretty dubious.

I hope they didn't forget that besides the extreme destruction, the existing fans want pedestrian blood, gibs and limbs.

I assume "after a partner" simply means they don't have a publisher yet and are looking for one. I would also assume the timer coming back is because they cocked up the site launch :lol:

Yeah, tweets between Simone McDermott and Samantha Clegg confirm the site was hammered to death by too many people wanting to read the news lol

What are their twitter handles, Toothrot?

Don't like the sound of "downloadable title" and "xbla exclusive possible?" from that article. Hope it's unfounded speculation.
