A game about running ey?
What next, a game based on Extreme Ironing (YES IT'S A REAL SPORT). These days people are making up the queerest activities and claiming them as a sport. I've seen some of the street jumping acrobatics whatnot and I do agree it would take a lot of stamina and strength to do what they do, but making it into a game is just wrong.

Those are just my thoughts

^^ Have you seen the new McDonald's ad by any chance? That's parkour just nowhere near as good as the stuff I've seen on tv. If walking can be counted as an Olympic sport than running and jumping sure as hell can be a sport as well.

Hey, I don't care if they make it a sport, but making it into a game is silly. Nobody made a walking game did they?

I'm not trying to take stabs at anyone, i'm just voicing my opinion.
I've seen a few silly games creep into the gaming industry (Little Britain, lol) and it just pisses me off. Thats all.

I'll just stick with trying to win the auction one. I'm not sure of an answer currently... (Something to do with candy, perhaps..)

This is a combination of 'Cool Runnings' and the word 'Free'. There could not be a cooler thing in the world.

I know you weren'y trying to stabs at anyone man I was just trying to show what it was and no I dont have a link for the ad sorry I only know about it because I saw it on tv.

Well I've now entered. Hopefully I can keep my free stuff momentum going and win this.

Free Running is fricken awesome. If you watch the extra features on Casino Royale theres a documentry about how they did the scene at the start with Bond chasing the black guy. That black guy is like one of the best guys in the world at the sport. Very cool to watch.

Ill be entering for sure!

Pfft Aus only. icon_sad.gif Almost definitely gonna buy the game myself though, looks awesome.

RKO'd I think you'll find there'll be a lot more substance in this game than you perhaps expect (equivalent to any such sports game, THPS and the like), after watching countless documentries on Parkour, I'm sure it'll be crazy fun. icon_smile.gif

What next, a game based on Extreme Ironing (YES IT'S A REAL SPORT).


That'd be so awesome on the DS.

Control a character with an Ironing Board on their back with the D-Pad, then to set up in a certain area, a touch screen minigame comes out to set up the Ironing Board, then navigate the Iron across the item of clothing.

Heh. I've got a friend who does free running professionally.

I hadn't heard of it at all until I meet her, but seeing free running in person is... well, damn awesome... and kinda of hot icon_razz.gif. But it easily fits with other extreme sports such as skating and BMX riding, in my opinion.

The game though, I wouldn't have a clue how interesting it would be, but still sounds kind of cool regardless. Lucky PALGN readers *shakes fist*

And after doing some research, this game has been in the making for almost three years, and the trailer of the game looks mighty swish.

There's Melbournian Free Runners, Mark? I want to see it in person too!

If for whatever reason I win the game, feel free to borrow it. Or, I'll give it to you as long as I can watch some people parkouring it up locally. =D
