    Random Retro Goodness

    I'm not sure if this thread will die a death or become a go to like the other 2 Retro threads but thought this might be a good place to put random finds, thoughts, opinions and chat about what you're thinking of buying next. There's been several times where I wanted to chat about something but the "What have you brought" & "What have you been playing" threads did not cover it so thought a catch all thread about random retro stuff might be appreciated. We will see I guess and Mods feel free to remove if so!

    After all the Ridge Racer talk and being reminded why it's one of my favourite race series, I was looking online and came across this long play of Ridge Racer Revolution. It's now been playing non-stop in my headphones at work all lunchtime and I can't get some of the songs out of my head. The music track playing at 26:53 is pretty sweet!



    Actually, forget it. The whole complete soundtrack from Ridge Racer, Revolution, Rage, Type 4 and V is proper, vintage video game music. Grip...



    Lucid Rhythms, and the whole Type 4 Soundtrack is my most played album of all time, just chill out bliss.

    I've got the Type 4 album, it's just magic. Got the soundtrack to V too which I love. Ace!

    I have the 4 album too. The end credits music almost brings a tear to my eye. It's beautiful.

    How about the games itself i always saw ridge racer as a series to show off what a new system could do? While i enjoy(ed) the series i prefer to play ridge racer on a handheld, the psp ones are brilliant, as is the 3ds one.

    Shame it's unlikely were going to see another game

    Love Ridge. Tons of replay value and depth in control. Hard to master.

    I was recently playing Ridge Racer 2 on PSP because it has all the tracks from the PS1 games. I wasn't good enough to unlock all the tracks though

    Ridge Racers 2 is an absolute must on PSP. It's not UMD Passport though, and I'm loathe to drop the ridiculous price to have it on Vita.

    Revolution is where it's at for score attack though. The original is hella fun with the 13th Racing, but Revolution is a tighter game, and the handling is even more brutal than the original. You can pull off some insane times with the White Angel and Chibi 13th Racing. It's just a shame that you cannot race the original course.

    Rage is an odd one. It has much of the original feel, but it's overly-expansive in certain ways. The forced manual transmission is not to my liking, and unnecessary IMO.

    Ridge Racer fans should check out Ray Tracers. It's available on Vita/TV. It's a bizarre cross between the original Ridge Racer and Chase H.Q. The handling will likely not be to your liking, but it's quite fun nonetheless.

    You should just make this into a Ridge Racer thread I reckon @Wools.

    Must admit, I never really liked Ray Tracers.

    I think someone on Rllmuk got loads of us excited about the game and after picking it up the excitement dried up. The control is okay but with no depth and although you could argue the courses are more knockabout than other Arcade games, their was something very unrefined about the whole experience.

    As I'm setting up the PlayStation in my new front room and giving it pride of place, maybe I'll have to re-visit it.
