First thing’s first: Yes, I’m still alive! I just haven’t had anything to post in a long time…
Okay, anyway, I’ve been to a retro gaming cafe known as “Megabytes”, which is a great place, everyone should visit if they’re ever in Glasgow.
So I decided to do this thing where you get to try out and play consoles for £1 an hour, so I decided to try out a bunch of N64 racers I’ve been dying to try out, from Cruisin’ USA to F-zero X!
So I’ve decided to try out this new feature I wanted to do called “5 word impressions”, where, as the title says, I give my impression of a game in exactly 5 words! In the end, I’ll give a rating of my experience out of 10, which won’t count towards the word count.
I might end up changing the name later, though, since I don’t like the title as it is, so it’s a placeholder.
The idea was inspired by a radio station I used to listen to (that sadly isn’t around anymore) called “Rock Radio”, where they gave the weather forecast in 5 words, called “5 Word Weather”. (See what I mean? That’s a better title!)
Anyway, without further delay, let’s start on the games I tried out! Bear in mind, though, I only got to try these for 5-10 minutes each, so I didn’t get time to try them out in full.
Good old fashioned arcade fun! (7/10)
Holy s**t! This is fast! (9/10)
Top Gear Rally
How do you control this?! (6/10)
Jaguar games have ran smoother! (3/10)
F1 World Grand Prix
Weird resolution but solid racer! (7/10)
(I would’ve said “HUD”, but technically, that’s 3 words. (Heads Up Display))
So there youse have it! I had a lot of fun doing these, I hope youse had as much fun reading them!
