But I can understand why they might have done that...at the time, the US had very little exposure to European sports of any sort. Heck, here in Canada, you couldn’t find a copy of FIFA in game store until the late 2000s. So they were probably forced to give it a NASCAR sheen to sell a few copies. Not ideal but Read more

I have a friend that is a huge Cyber Formula fan from when he was a kid. The first time I stayed with him in Japan, I found out he has a glass case full of memorabilia for it. When I went last, I brought him a complete copy of Cyber Spin as a gift, since I figured he’d never seen it.

I was skimming the article and when I saw the TOCA cover followed by “that other game’s” cover, I thought you had simply posted the TOCA cover as an example of a “good” game cover and the second one as an example of a “bad” game cover, and that they were completely unrelated games.

I remember that first Road and Track NFS game.  It was so clunky, even on a reasonably fast pc for the time.  I remember them adding 3dcard support years later and it was a big improvement.  The second game was better, but they moved away from R&T and I think that is when the simulator approach started fading.

I can unequivocally say, this is my next car. It launches right around the time I’ll make the last payment for my current car. Jalops, please buy these with a manual and show Nissan it wasn’t all for nothing. This may very well be the last affordable, manual dedicated sports car.

With just about every manufacturer obsessed with coining a corporate face and striving for predictable, tedious design consistency across their entire fleet, I can’t overstate how refreshing it is to see Hyundai forge this path of making wildly unique cars. Read more

Thank you for the information. I will definitely look into it. Hopefully there will still be one on sale after I get my tax return.
