  1. I'm not going to be too active. But got a months PSN sub to try online. Play 3 rivals games and won all 3 easily. Scored about 12 goals all in and conceded 3 or so. 

    Still a Japanese team, you know me. Not sure on formation yet though. Currently 3-5-2.


    What is a recommended formation?

    I think it’s because you’re maybe not used to the Asian style of story telling.


    Theyre not in a rush to tell the story. Chill and enjoy the ride.

    Although they wrap it up normally in one season, not across generations of viewers. 

  3. The menus in Ridge Racer V are just beautiful. It feels premium today with stylish icons and superb animations. It could easily be a front end today. 


    A good sound effect when selecting or moving the cursor is important too. I love how the first Kingdom Hearts sounds. 

  4. I think it ran mostly well. Probably two episodes longer than it needed but unlike US drama, it's one series. Something that is great about Asian drama. 


    I thought it was great. Episode 6 in particular was a very difficult watch. I love how character driven that episode in particular was and it makes you question so many things. 

  5. I don't know if I'll get this. I'm kinda enjoying it with my usual Japanese team in squad battles. Parts feel good, but parts not so. It's impossible to defend at times agains the faster players. 


    When it's good it's really good. But i feel it will do the same old thing where by Christmas, fast players will kill the fun.

    Yes! Didnt the same team then do the Max Power game? 



    Rapid Racer

    Tokyo Highway Battle

    Rage Racer

    Porsche Challenge

    Rally De Africa 

    Gran Turismo (arcade mode is fun!)

    Burning road 

    Racing Groovy 

    Touge Max 2 


    PS1 had lots of good racers. 




  7. And N64 games like MRC had 3, GT64 had 3. 


    It's down to the transition between arcade experiences and more fleshed out home ones. 


    Rage Racer was a 1996 game, the arcade focus still very much a thing. 


    Thankfully, things improved. Although quality of content is always better than quantity. Again, Rage is a better game that R4.

    Good! That's the one I've started playing!

    It has less content, only 4 tracks compared to R4's 8 configurations, but the overall GP structure is better. Plus the cars are so different, it encourages manual gears too. 


    Once completed, the game has extra mode in reverse. 


    R4 is just the same single GP over and over. Such a massive shame. It has no depth at all. 


  9. Type 4 is a disappointingly structured game but plays fantastic and has unreal presentation. Rage is a much better game. 


    For the 60fps thing, games rarely run at that. The emulator might show 60 fps which often shows its running correctly but the actual games are often locked to 30. Particularly with 3d games but of course there are exceptions. 


    Rapid Racer Is 50/60 fps depending on region. And high resolution. So impressive.
