Hey you! Good to see you. Come over and sit down; tell me about your week. Whoa, hang on! Before you start boring me to death with dull details of your days, it was only an empty pleasantry. Now shh and let me tell you about mine. It starts with an Android…

We went rapidly downhill here.
Race, Stunt, Fight, 2!
Keeping the pace and the adrenaline going, if you often bemoan the lack of relentless savage violence in two-wheeled motorsport then you’re going to love this second slice of psychotic cycle action. You may also have ‘issues’. Come pick your weapon of choice.

Say hello to the Violator 8000… no, no really. This deranged looking killbot has been unearthed as the original stand-in Android mascot concept art, as designed by Andy engineer Dan Morrill. Nightmarish, eh? Fortunately, Google thought better of it and rather than running Morrill’s spiral eyed androidenous abomination turned instead to the little green Bigdroid we all know and don’t fear.
