Deep Silver wants you to get laid... wait... that's nail'd. Wrong euphanism, sorry.

Seriously, people need to quit naming their games after sex euphanisms. It makes it damn near impossible to use anything other than inappropriate puns to talk about video games. Not that I'd do anything different, it just doesn't leave as many choices.

Anyways, Deep Silver is publishing a new racing game called nail'd. Notice how nail'd isn't capitalized? That's on purpose, to make it seem cool and edgy. Either that or they couldn't afford to pay for the big N, so they went with the little one. Evidently, they also couldn't afford a physics engine because as the press release puts it "...nail’d eschews boring realism for over the top arcade fun". Yeah, because flying 5,000 feet in the air makes for some wicked cool jumps.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy games with a sense of hyper reality to them. But racing and jumping without the laws of physics are basically just about flying and crashing, and should then be marketed as such. Either way, we'll learn more about this game prior to its release in Q4 2010. Hit the jump for more info.
Deep Silver Announces Lightning-Fast Arcade Racer,nail’d™
 
Hermosa Beach, CA - April 22, 2010 – Deep Silver, the games label of Koch Media, a worldwide producer and distributor of digital entertainment products, announced today they will publishnail’d™, a new arcade-style off-road racer for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC.
nail’d eschews boring realism for over the top arcade fun. It’s a racer that challenges everything from player reflexes to the rules of physics. Riding on ATVs and motocross bikes with powerful boost controls, players will race down near-vertical courses of incredible jumps, stunts and obstacles at an unprecedented level of speed.  nail’d also shatters conventions when it comes to track design by emphasizing verticality and unbelievable drops instead of simply adding in a few jumps on mainly horizontal paths. 
 
“Based on the response we’ve had from those who’ve seen it, we’re sure that nail’d is going to redefine expectations of games of this genre,” said Geoff Mulligan, Chief Operating Officer at Deep Silver.  “To compete in the category, you have to be confident that you’re going to stand out and nothing that I’ve seen on the shelves compares to what we’re bringing to gamers. This game is going to give new meaning to the word adrenaline.”
 
In addition to various exciting single-player modes, nail’d features an incredibly robust collection of multiplayer options for up to 12 players.  Combined with an electrifying soundtrack featuring licensed music and original tunes composed and performed by heavy metal luminaries, un-lockable vehicle customization options and incredibly detailed leader boards, nail’d has something to offer racing fans of all types. 
 
nail’d, developed by Techland, is scheduled for a worldwide launch in the 4th calendar quarter of 2010.  For more information, visit http://www.naildgame.com, follow us on Twitter @naildgame, or on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/naildgame.
