Real Racing 3 trailer escapes EA Summer Showcase

Friday, 3rd August 2012 01:31 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Here’s a game you will play on your phone which looks almost as fancy as any on your HD TV, even in pre-alpha state: Real Racing 3, the first title to emerge from the newly rebranded Firemonkeys.

The Real Racing series was Firemint’s baby, but now the developer has merged with Iron Monkeys to form what may be the best-named mobile studio in the world, and this si the result.

As the name suggests, authenticity is the watch word. It features licensed cars from the likes of Porsche, Dodge and Audi, and real-world tracks including Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Silverstone. Each race boasts a 22 car grid – quite a feat for a mobile racer.

Real Racing 3 is slated for 2012 release, presumably on Android and iDevice.

    Being a balanced, rational, modern person, maybe I’ll write an essay about how it’s a combination of softcore accessibilty and hardcore intuitiveness, blurring the lines between the genres, marketplaces and people, destroying one sided approaches to gaming and taking the medium to new heights while staying true to it’s roots, all that ultimately appealing to both genders, when I feel like it.

    Might create a few analogies with sex life, religion and education. And post some insightful criticism, all carefully copy pasted from blogspot websites.

    Here goes.

    There’s a difference between emoticons and smileys though. It certainly needs, quite frankly, that.

    Ultimately though it’s a matter of opinion. That said, I enjoy smileys more, by virtue of numerous evidence found on the internet they ‘re obviously superior. Incidentally though, smileys tend to lack the stylish appeal of the former.

    Personally, I prefer smileys in the same way I enjoy Google. They are incredibly adaptive. Where emoticons fail to stay relevant, smileys win on a regular basis.

    I blame the AOL and Icq. it’s destructive, and regressive. Smileys certainly need to gain back some ground, which was historically theirs for centuries.
