    It's a Sonic Team theme song in the vein of Sonic Adventure's theme songs, so that's a given. :v: The original actually has Knuckle's singer performing, and the Japanese version has Daytona USA's singer(!!!).

    Coincidence! That's my favorite stage too! Every match will be Burning Depths!

    I thought I might not, but I just unlocked AGES last night, and I'm really glad I took the time to do it. I especially get a kick out of the Dreamcast menu sound effects when you're in water mode. For anyone without the Wii U version, does that mode also still make VMU beeps? I noticed even in 2-player mode when I didn't have the gamepad, the VMU beeps would still only come out of the controller speaker, which is pretty cute and clever.

    I'm adoring this game. The first ASR was fun, but it always just made me feel like I'd be having more fun playing Mario Kart. ASRT doesn't have this issue; it stands on its own, and is IMO better than any Mario Kart.

    Not a shocker. Saturn era English music was a bit... "interesting."

    Here's the source track.

    And for shits and giggles, everyone's favorite Sega vocalist, Takenobu Mitsuyoshi.

    Got this on Boxing Day, hit the credits today. Some of the course design in this game is just wonderful. The Panzer Dragoon and After Burner ring races are just excellent, and I'm actually a big fan of Race of AGES. Only two things I don't like about the game, really: the reasonably frequent crashes and the hateful Twister weapon. Control-reversing items are possibly the worst thing in gaming.

    You may have misspelt awesome there.

    Don't you feel like sometimes... we should stop referencing this game? :v:

    Actually, I adore the Saturn era's musical style. I'm just saying others find it rather idiotic.

    They are incredibly wrong, but that's their opinion.

    Seeing as I got a Wii U for Christmas, I'll probably just get it on that.

    I got the 360 copy on loan from my workplace, so if anyone on 360 wants to get several of us together for a Regular Retro Rapture Race of Ridiculous Repercussions, hit me up.

    Or post here, whichever. :specialed:
     
  12. I would be up for any 360 Retro racing. Tell me your Gamertags, mines RDude09.

    PJMan586 right here.

    Lol I was getting screwed over in an online race the other day (for some reason I hit people twice with my car and I just was thrown back and got turned around). Obviously I was screwed, however I decided to even the playing field by using that early lap finish on the JSRF level from the first game. Into first I go.

    Not where I want to be.
    Sonic (?): Coming summer of 2055...?
    I cheat (is it cheating?) on the ghosts. I save my boost for one lap, and boost right before the line to get the benefits of a long-ass, powerful boost. And another one to spare.

    I feel like by the time the PC version comes out, everyone will have stopped caring and there'll be nobody to play with. :\
    EDIT: As I say this, I look up and am reminded that the PC version seems to be quite popular on the polls. Hopefully they haven't changed their minds.

    Honestly it seems like most of the Expert ghosts do the same thing, it's pretty much essential for a fair shot at beating them in my experience.

    Not that I've beaten many... :(

    Well, I got most of the week off except Saturday night this week, so whatever works for everyone.

    I'd definitely be up for this :) I'm available most evenings (usually except for Fridays).

    I already have a lot of Retro people added, but for those of you who I don't have yet, my gamertag is BadWolf18787.
