We’re closing in on the end of Split/Second now; only a few more episodes to go!
Today’s episode, Boneyard Rush, takes us out of the city and into a few areas rather devoid of life… the desert, the canyon, the industrial zone. Bring on the Bridge of Death!
Hit the jump to see how things went today… and to admire a stupid gag that took me probably more time and effort than it really deserved.

Well over the halfway point through Split/Second now, and we’re starting to unlock some of the top-notch cars.
There are still some significant challenges ahead of us, but today’s installment goes strangely smoothly… perhaps it’s down to the amount of gas I fill myself with before getting underway properly.
Whatever the reason, hit the jump to see how things went… and beware of the flatulence.

What could possibly make a Split/Second race more exhilarating? Why, the prospect of getting covered in poo in the process, of course!
That appears to be the unique selling point the announcer gives us for today’s races, some of which unfold in the city’s storm drains. Lovely!
Hit the jump to see how these potentially filthy events unfolded…

Look at me, I’m on camera!
Yes, after some reluctance and a surprising amount of urging from my wife (who either really wants me to suffer or genuinely thinks this is a good idea) I finally decided to show my Actual Face on one of these videos. I thought Sunday Driving was as good a place as any to experiment a bit with this format.
And yes, I know I cut the top of my head off in my GameFace shot. This is why we do experimental takes like this!

You thought we got off lightly last time around with “just” some races and time trials? This week’s episode more than makes up for that.
That damn helicopter is back, and ready to cause considerable grief. And those trucks are back, too, ready to hurl flaming death out of their rear end, much like my friend James did after he decided to find out what kind of curry a “Naga” was.
Hit the jump to see how things went.

Split/Second’s explosive run on BRTV (or, rather, its repeat on MoeGamerTV, the Dave of YouTube) continues with some challenging races that keep our contestants on their toes.
Still, at least no-one is shooting missiles at me or attempting to drop explosive barrels directly through my windscreen today, so there’s that, I guess.
Hit the jump to see the chaos unfold as it happened!

Having cleared the pre-season training and the first episode of exciting new TV show Split/Second, it’s now onto the next installment.
This episode, Splashdown, introduces the Air Strike event type. This involves helicopters firing missiles at you while you’re just minding your own business trying to drive in circles around an abandoned city.
It’s as intense and ridiculous as it sounds. Hit the jump to see how things went…
