Oh HELL yeah. I think that the 10th anniversary of Dreamcast has somehow generated the first wave of game nostalgia in me, ever, and SFC is still my favorite system. Somehow, though, I just want to rock out like it's 1999/2000 when Sega was still a force in my life in all the best ways.

If I can't be bothered to start the Skullomania thread yet, I at least hope to make this a DAYTOOOONNAAAA weekend thread. And in the very best spirit of Daytona, I will post The Very Greatest Racing Tune Ever Made, from Wangan Midnight.

Wangan Midnight...I know the original arcade version was ported to PS2, but I don't get why the Maximum Tune series never got console releases. I didn't get to play it often in the arcades (which I rarely got to), but I did often enjoy playing it. And playing Ridge Racer 6 on X360 made me wonder why Maximum Tune never made it to consoles.

We could probably start a whole thread about arcade games that never got console releases...

Anyway, Daytona... here's hoping it's all true...

Here's hoping that Takenobu Mitsuyoshi does the soundtrack for Daytona 3 as he did before even if it might end up being called Sega Racing Classic.

I'm also hoping it won't turn out as bad as Sega's NASCAR Arcade game they did a few years back, especially after I initially perceived it as the long awaited sequal to Daytona 2.

So it is real, apparently:

Supposedly, it'll be in hi-def. But the image in the monitor window looks like the old Daytona USA:CCE. Hmm...

It's too bad they couldn't manage to aquire (or perhaps they just didn't bother) the Daytona license. Not that it matters much, but at least they'd have an excuse to re-use that tune again.

"What if..." , posted Tue 20 Oct 12:49post reply

I know how crazy of a thought this is, but just... hear me out for a second here. We all know about how awesome Takenobu Mitsuyoshi's work on the first Daytona USA soundtrack is. And most of us know that Crush 40 rocked on the second Daytona soundtrack. What if... what if...

WHAT IF THEIR POWERS WERE TO COMBINE?

I... I don't know what I'd do!

Apparently, SRS is an emulated Daytona USA with widescreen and HD output. It might as well be a MAME hack mod. Its not that I don't like the original (it would love it if say they release the original for virtual console or such service) its just that I can actually go play it in a near by arcade.

If Sega was a dude I would headbutt him so hard that both of our skulls would explode on impact.

Next they should make a 3d accelerated port of the first Virtua Fighter running in super duper HD at 2000 frames per second.

No, you would throw each other over the air and then your bodies would explode on impact.

I thought they would give Daytona the same treatment as they did for Sega Rally with Revo and After Burner with Climax. A bummer indeed.

Speaking of which, there's an arcade in my mall that has a Dayton unit up for sale (although you can play it just like any of the old regular arcades as well). It's kinda funny hearing "DAAAAYYTONA!!!" blast when you're in sunny Tampa.

"I knew it!" , posted Tue 3 Nov 13:27post reply

Somehow I knew exactly what that link was before I clicked it! Madman's Cafe, you make me happy. Still never did play Saturn Bomberman Fight!! despite how badly I wanted to get my hands on it back then.

Strangely enough, I was looking at those old Bomberman head multitaps they had for the Saturn earlier today. I still want one of those too!

And yeah, as much of a letdown as this is, I hope that Ringedge stuff will make for easy 360 ports since it's all PC-y. This shit straight-up looks like XBLA material and I hope it finds itself there eventually. A real online version of the original Daytona (not that DC nonsense) would please me, just not $60 please me is all.

The title of this post says it all. The Daytona USA series has always been my favorite racing game series (yes, I even liked the DC version). Sega Racing Classic appears to be giant step backwards, and it makes me sad. Sure, I'm glad the might reintroduce a classic to new audiences, even possible through Xbox Live & PSN. Still, it doesn't satisfy the itch of a new Daytona experience since Daytona 2 came out over 10 (yes, TEN) years ago.

At least we have Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune...oh wait, NAMCO NEVER RELEASED THAT GAME TO CONSOLES!!! FFFFFFFFFFFFFF---

Oh well, I might as well go buy Forza 3, or perhaps just play F-Zero GX or even the DC Daytona...or...

Let's face it: Arcade Racing Games are DEAD!

Right now I'm in Las Vegas, attending the IAAPA Attractions Expo. Sega is there with their latest (and not-so-hot) releases as well.

From what I've seen, Sega Racing Classics is really Daytona USA slightly revamped to run at a higher widescreen resolution and that's all. Absolutely no changes to the gameplay and only 4 cabinets linked. I don't exactly remember the original soundtrack but it seems they left it untouched.

Here's a picture of the flyer distributed at the event. Sorry for the sloppy quality, I don't have a scanner right now.

Not only that, but they also brought Sega Rally 3 and Hummer too. Hummer has that strange co-op mode, where you have two steering wheels per car (?) and take turns controlling the vehicle. Sega Rally 3 is a modified version of Sega Rally Revo, with a few tweaks here and there to make it look more like an arcade game (although there's no terrain modification, there's now a smooth 60 fps framerate).

Lots of companies are still developing racing games, as there's still a lot of demand for new titles in this genre, but very few of them manage to put new ideas together. Usually they just follow the Cruis'n formula.

I'm really tempted to ask them if there are any plans to release such a game. Thanks for the idea.
