Ridge racer Type H-O-T!
I would just like to say how happy I am that Namco is working on GameCube titles. I am sure Star Fox will be fantastic considering how good Starblade was. However, of all the games mentioned the one that has me drooling is their unnamed racing game. When they mention that it will be the “next evolution of Ridge Racer” I get all warm inside. I think that Ridge Racer Type 4 for the PSX is the greatest racing game ever made. No other racing game before or since has been able to grab hold of me the way R4 did. I spent months with that game trying to shave fractions of seconds off my lap times. I think that ridge racer V on the PS2 was more of a shitty technology demo than a game and so I don’t really consider it a part of the series. If Namco is able to bring back all the great stuff from Type 4 like the story mode and the wicked cars then I will be one happy camper. I’ve got my fingers crossed.
