Well for the last two weeks I have been participateing in the Very early Beta stages of EA's newest raceing game MotorCity.
MotorCity Online places you in the era of muscl cars in the heart of american iron. You can buy cars from the 30's to the 70's and then completely upgrade the engines. Put in differant engine blocks, pistons, carbs, valves, headers anyway you get the pic.
Atm I am one of only 1500 ppl who are testing this game. My main problem with the game is the fact that right now the servers are only up 3 days for 5 hours a day. That is so they can do the repairs on the servers that are needed to achieve the stability they are looking for. Eventually it will be up 24/7.
Another great point of this game is the fact you race against other live players, be it for cash or be it for pink slips. This is going to be an amazeing game!!!! I only wish It had a Fiero in it. I have a 675 hp 350 sbc in the game I would LOVE to stick in one
Anyway just my 2 cents and thoughts on this great game!!!!

Well the interface and graphics are comparable to porshe unleashed. The latentcy is pretty good atm all things considered. The servers are as of yet unstable and crashy but the lag is non existent atm. I think that by the time the beta is over it is going to be an amazeing game.
On a second note I almost had a guy here in town convinced to trade me his 86 gt for the beta cd too bad he didn't go for it, cause I would have more than gladly given up my beta testing for fixing up a fiero
When did you receive your Beta CD? I was supposed to beta test the game as well but the game hasn't arrived yet. Are the interiors of the cars anymore detailed than in Porsche Unleashed? That was my only gripe against that game. Any chance you could post some screenies or have they a NDA agreement?
You want Fiero's i got em... although at this time for NFS 3 though! I was working on a 89 Prototype... a few peeps have the beta version of the car... then my hardrive nuked so i neeed to remake the prototype! OOPSIE! Although I pry wont if there is no demand for it... But oh well there are Fiero's for NFS that I made on my site...

I got my mc beta cd 3 weeks ago but they have only given out 1500 atm. they are going to be giving out more but it will be a little bit they want to get the servers stable for 1500 first. The interior still needs work, it is kinda glitchy atm. And as far as the game comeing out in sept. I wouldn't hold my breat. Still LOTSA bugs to get out. I would guess closer to christmas.
P.S. I will try to take some screenies tonight when I play
