Hey all! I thought it might be fun to play some video games, separately, together! I’ve always liked the idea of throwing a bunch of old racing games in a hat, picking one at random, then choosing a track and over the course of the next week, everyone who’s interested competes to get the best time they can, then we post our best times and maybe chat about strategy or the game/track/course/whatever!
Inspired by this post over on Cohost, I figured it would be good to start with a game that’s very much a known quantity in this community, so let’s kick this sucker off with a good old fashioned SEGA RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP!!. We’ll be playing the Sega Saturn version and focusing explicitly on the first track, DESERT. Real hardware or emulation is fine by me, this isn’t exactly a formal competition here. Use whatever control input method you want! I think times may be different on the arcade version and the PS2 release of Sega Rally ’95, but hey, if that’s all you have available I’m not gonna stop you. I ain’t no police cop. I know there are multiple variations of the game, even in the Saturn port, depending on your region, so I’m defaulting to the standard US release what had the silver box and all that, but again, you do you. Maybe this would be a fun way to find out which versions of the game are faster or slower etc.! Personally I’ll be playing that release on my Saturn with the wheel peripheral thingy.
With that all having been said, lights out and away we go! May all your lefts be easy and maybe!
This will go for seven days, after which I will post the scoreboard, and we can pick a new game and track!
