Don't say it. I know, when you see "Ridge Racer," you long to shout it in a certain way; however, a new era is dawning for the series with the just-announced Ridge Racer Unbounded, so maybe we can all just go back to saying Ridge Racer normally. I think it's about time we all moved on, right?
At E3 2011, we got a preview of Unbounded, and our own Adam Rosenberg has the report. Seems like developer Bugbear has some tricks up its sleeve for the new title:
"Bugbear says that the story isn't a guiding focus for Unbounded, but rather a framework to give players a sense of flow as they move from race to race. As far as the actual gameplay goes, it's all about speeding through urban environments while -- in a first for the series -- making use of highly destructible environments to create shortcuts and set traps. Bugbear is probably known best for its work on the FlatOut series, so the new element in this Ridge Racer isn't entirely unexpected."

P.S. Moving on is for suckers. RIIIIIIIIIIIIDGE RACER!
