As well as enjoying the delights of Area 51 this weekend, the main thrust of my gameplay has been the excellent Sega Rally Revo on Xbox 360. Typical of me, I have had the game sitting under the TV since Christmas Day, and only this weekend did I decide to give it a play.
I'm absolutely hooked! As the guy in the video explains, it has many a references to the original game and indeed the developers at the British based Sega Racing Studio, had an original Sega Rally Arcade cab (like the one I'm pictured in below) in their building so that they never lost sight of the glory of the first incarnation.
The game also provided me with my first ever online play, as I raced total strangers over the magic of the internet. That's it, I'll be obsessing over this title for a long time to come, trying to shave seconds off lap times and unlocking all the unlockable content!
It could very well knock the original Sega Rally off the top spot for my favourite driving game of all time!
