I’ve been playing a bit of Dirt3 recently. Wow, is that game boring. So I found myself going back to my comfort zone of arcade racers with Sega Rally and just had to draw something. I had also been watching a lot of Bob Ross (lots of love for Bob), so this was born.
I love the Lakeside course in the original Sega Rally. It had beautiful colours and was one of the more intense races with incredibly thin roads. I wanted to capture that with the two star cars, the Toyota Celica and Lancia Delta (not including the hidden Stratos). I’m 100% all about the Celica here.
Sega sure made some great racers. Past tense sadly. Anyone seen the new Daytona 3? Sigh.
sega rally 2, mountain, stratos. that was my jam.
Also, yay if you're a Saturn owner!
That game was an arcade classic.
I did hear about the upcoming "Daytona Championship USA 3" though.
I noticed you're 17, so you missed it the first time around - but great to see you know your stuff
As for Daytona 3, it doesn't look great... would of been an ok HD reworking, but it's not living up the previous iterations
I'm okay about Daytona 3. Although I'm also okay about the cheesy, country and 80's music in some racing games.
But I'd honestly prefer Namco's Wangan Midnight (the original, R and Maximum Tune) and SEGA's Initial D considering the music being great.
Like techno (Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune (1, 2, 3, 3DX, 3DX+, 4, 5 & 5DX)) and eurobeat/super eurobeat (Initial D). Yeah, Initial D is a really hard game (So does Battle Gear (1 to 4) and not to be confused with Side by Side (1 & 2)).
Even Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune (1, 2, 3, 3DX, 3DX+, 4, 5 & 5DX) is the only game that I could ever find.
Daytona USA has become a popular Sega Model 2 arcade racing game in everybody's opinion.
Yeah when I played it, I instantly thought at Sega Rally and that old Castrol car as well. Found the game pretty good though, at least on the higher difficulties and with the brake help options turned off. Its big difference without the ai helping you
Also why was Scud Racer never ported to Dreamcast or another system later?!?
Daytona USA 3 looks meh..wonder if it will get a port even
Scud race never coming out was a huge disappointment. Same for a number of model 3 games which would of been perfect on the Dreamcast. Apparently there was a version used to demo the Dreamcast, but never the full game.
I'm getting the feeling Daytona 3 is not getting a port. I'm still holding out hopes for the 90s arcade racer, a kickstarter from many years ago... but seems like it has died, it captured these racing games perfectly.
