THQ Gamer’s Day 08: Baja – AI “will drive your car while you make a sandwich”

Monday, 9th June 2008 13:37 GMT By Mike


In an interview with EGTV’s Johnny Minkley, 2XLs Robb Rinard has revealed that upcoming racer Baja will allow you to hand controls over to the AI if you need to go to the bathroom or make a sandwich.

“Real life intervenes: you’ve got to go to the bathroom, the phone rings,” said the developer.

“In multiplayer you can bring up the in-game menu and hand off your car to an AI driver and he’ll drive your car while you go make a sandwich.”

Without wanting to state the obvious, doesn’t that leave the way open to, you know, cheating?

Baja’s will hit the PS3 and 360 this autumn.

    Yeah yeah, all well and good but I’d better not come home from work to find that AI driver porkin’ my wife.

    Otherwise there’ll be hell to pay.

    Are the races so long that you might want to make a sarnie while driving or does it induce hunger or something? How bizarre!

    I wonder if it’s a bit like drivatar. Which was fine… except I could never get it as good as I could drive – plus it stole all my money.
