It’s Thursday, a “just kicking it show”

Hello Everyone,

On Thursday I recorded a test show which turned out to be a great conversation. We had 3 callers:

  • HGETTI 09 – Frankie
  • I Am Osirus – Darius
  • Dee Assasin – Derwin

We discussed some of the games we were currently playing and some industry perspective. Frankie, who works for gamestop shared a few things with us coming down the pipe. Check out the show.

Outrun

You have a girl by your side and you have a nice car, what more do you want? Outrun races in this past Wednesday and I must say that I like it a lot. You can pick it up for 800 Microsoft points. The game play is very clean and crisp; something we all come to expect from outrun titles. The music tracks that we’ve come to know and love (Splash wave, magical sound shower and passing breeze) are there and a few additional ones (Risky ride, Shiny World, Night Flight and Life was a bore). The game modes are as follows:

  • Outrun mode – the forever traditional get to your destination
  • Time Attack mode – beat the ghost car timesĀ  – get like a 4.50.00
  • Heart attack mode – meet your girl’s demands by getting as many hearts as you can.
  • Outrun mode 15 course – try to reach the goal with your girl through 15 courses.

The selection of cars that are readily available are:

  • F50
  • Enzo Ferrari
  • 360 Spider
  • F40
  • Testarossa
  • 288 GTO
  • 512 BB
  • Dino 246 GTS
  • 365 GTS/4 Daytona
  • 250 GTO

In the multiplayer mode you can play 6 player unranked outrun matches. You can also host your own and let people show up in your room. One of the achievements is to “Arrive at all goals (A-E)” and one of the quickest way (I believe) to get that is to:

  • Host an online match
  • Start your stage setting to start at A and change it after every match till you get to E (make sure you finish and do not get disqualified)

One of the things that I did notice is when you switch your camera (at times) and can be glitchy, this also happens sometimes when you crash. The game also does not have a multiplayer local mode which is usually a turn off for me but I made an exception on this one. Overall the game is great fun for most ages.

Prototype

This seems promising but who knows right? You might play it, beat it and trade it in two weeks later. But you gotta admit, this guy has some skills!!!

RROD

So I got the Red Ring Of Death last week and my box is on the way to texas. I hope I get it back soon. It was definitely a hardware failure. I turned the system on with the HDD and without the HDD. I also unplugged it and plugged it back in.
