    @Deckard1

    I dunno the difficulty you are using, but using switch-drifting and getting to know the course should help. That and picking the right character - someone with good speed should keep you right at first.

    I'm bloody awful at this too, expected it to be a bit more forgiving what with all the bright happy visuals n stuff. Though I've never been much cop at driving, be it real life or stupid cartoon go-karts... Still enjoying it mind.

    Any other tips? What's switch-drifting?

    Managed to glitch race of ages last night. Flipped as I transformed from plane to car and managed to land further down the track than the teleport trigger :-\ had to turn around and drive back twice before it put me on the track again.

    Switch drifting is when you change drift direction whilst maintaining your stored boost. Quickly let go of left trigger and re-apply whilst. changing direction. It takes a few goes to get it down.

    Becomes necessary very early.

    Yeah I'm starting to get to grips with it better now. How do you unlock characters?
  • Deleted user 27 November 2012 10:07:27
    Unlocked through the main career, you'll see their silouhettes. They require stars to unlock.

    I can switch drift around almost an entire track now, I remember doing it during the first drift and boost challenge, lots of fun! I really really like the traffic events, they're so rewarding when you get moments of flukey brilliance dodging those BASTARD blue cars :)

    The thing is with switch drifting, if you're just about to hit boost level 3 and switch drift, it resets the amount of time you need to drift to hit the next boost level, so quite often you're better of just boosting and starting to drift again instead of being stuck at boost level 2 for 3 corners.

    I can't get better than second on the first fucking race. I've tried about 15 times now and I just can't do it. The stupid little pink cunt is just too fast. And if I am winning some cunt will fire a cunting bee at me or something a cunt over the cunting line before me. I'm playing as a cunting blue cartoon cunting hedgehog driving in a little blue cunting sports car and I can't even win the first cunting race. What the cunt is going on here?
    Calm down dear it's only a driving game.

    Yeah, I wish it didn't reset but I get why it has to. I get up to level 3, sure it and go straight back into another drift. Save for jumps, you can go around the entire Ocean View track like that.

    I really like this. I was never a SEGA fanboy but the game is so good I don't mind not knowing who people are.

    Played 10 minutes of this in HMV at lunchtime, didn't do any tutorial stuff but I think I got the basics of the drift/boost stuff because it seemed very similar to the method used by nintendo in Mario Kart double dash.

    Only did a time trial on the first track, managed to beat the Hard ghost after 5 or 6 laps. Really looking forward to my copy turning up.

    Also, does this have leaderboards in time trial mode?

    Dunno about time trial, but I noticed it has leaderboards for the GP cups (overall time across 4 races).

    That's pretty saucy, and a deffo arcade racing touch.

    Any word on what the Wii U version performs like? I heard gamespot say something about a few bugs, but just wondering if they';ve been patched yet. I guess this is aimed at any NA forum users, seen as no one really knows over here yet.

    This is very enjoyable. Proper good fun and I really like seeing drop-in, drop-out 4 player s/screen available almost everywhere.
  • Deleted user 27 November 2012 23:51:41
    Good to see you're enjoying it, great game that deserves to do well.

    Here's hoping for some dlc track packs. Daytona and Space Harrier would be good ones.

    F-Zero tracks are fairly unlikely. What with it being a game about Sega.

    For the game cube. Its a Nintendo franchise, I really couldn't see them putting it in this.

    yeah, a bit unlikely.

    I'd love to play a big EG race or two on this, on 360. Sometime this weekend? Sunday eve is free for me.

    Yeah this game is all about Sega and their heritage. GX was made for Nintendo. Saying that I'd love the, to make a mushroom Kingdom level and introduce Mario.

    I'm well aware of that son, my point is that there is a historical precedent of cross licensing between sega and nintendo (also olympics) and that i hope, however unlikely, that some Sega developed fzero tracks appear as dlc in this game. Also, the inclusion of Danika Patrick shows that there may be room for non sega franchises.
