Back in the day, the original Carmageddon garnered quite a bit of controversy for its gory brand of pedestrian slaughter. Years later, it’s back. But is it good? Watch me play it below.


In addition to Carmageddon: Reincarnation, today’s stream will also include fantastic-looking Deus-Ex-inspired stealth game NEON STRUCT (aka “quietgame LOUDTITLE”), and gorgeous anti-war game Sunset.

Watch here, and feel free to click over to Twitch and jump into the chat. The more, the merrier, unless you’re an asshole.


UPDATE: The stream’s over, but you can watch a recording below. The short version? Carmageddon was zany but kinda repetitive, Neon Struct fused a Deus-Ex-style dystopia with Thief-style stealth to excellent effect, and Sunset presented a fascinating tale of wartime, class equality, and humanity from the mundane perspective of a housemaid.

Watch live video from NathanGrayson on TwitchThe Steam Stream is a marathon of recently released Steam games that airs every Wednesday afternoon, er, most of the time. The goal? To help you sift through the ceaseless avalanche that is Steam’s “new releases” section in a quick, easily digestible fashion. If you hate the unbridled havoc of moving pictures and prefer slow, easy-going words, fear not: each of these games will also get brief write-ups that will explain why you should (or shouldn’t) care about them.

I wonder what the next big controversy is going to be in the style of Carmageddon? Seems like it was a while ago we had a moral panic about violance in entertaiment. Is it coming back when VR such as Oculus rift is out on the market?
