Carmageddon: Reincarnation... makes a smashing return

Carmageddon came out in 1997 by Stainless Games and was censored in the UK for a while, released a few months before Grand Theft Auto it was the first game that I can remember whose aim was running people over and smashing cars to bit, I also think you could race other cars as well but that was the boring bit.

At the time it was released I was a 16 year old impressionable teenager; so my first thought when I read about this game was "I must play this" and my long term best friend Hishadow agreed with this sentiment.

We rushed over to his house and loaded the game up to find that it had been censored, so we powered up the modem and hit the internet to see if someone had a patch to uncensore it.

A few days later and a big phone bill, we had finally had done it and there were zimmer frames flying all over the place and eyeballs hitting the screen left, right, and centre.

Fast forward 17 years later and I am still enjoying violent computer games, it can be a great way to relax after a stressful day.

Stainless Games are still at it and near the end of this month they are releasing a newer Carmageddon game on steam with early access on the 25th of March 2014.

Not seen much about the game until it popped up on my news feed today, but from the tech demos its looking very good.

The game will hopefully will take a Saints Row approach and not bog the game down in moral overtones and just give us the tools to have mass carnage fun!
