I am simply the best video game driver (not bragging totally)

Postby Giovanni » Wed Feb 10, 2016 11:17 am

None can simply understand my sheer driving superiority, as you wouldn't even know where to begin with on how excellent my driving is.
With the fact that I am an elite expert on pressing the gas button, before slamming against walls and blockades at immense speed, there is absolutely no one that can beat me in any racing genre ever, not even in need for speed bro. /sarcasm

Share your own "elitist" experiences with any games related to driving here as I even mentioned in my own post, be it driving upside down in GTA, drifting 24/7 in mad max, etc. post your stories here so we could all share laughter to each other. (Because I have no idea what else to talk about)

There was this epic moment a couple of months ago with me and broscar in rollcage...

I was racing in 1st place, broscar right behind me. I had a driller missile and he had a turbo in his inventory.

We continued for a while, coming up to the finish line for a perfect lap (new items), so i needed to dump a useless item (driller)
So I dumped my driller... while broscar was almost the rear of my car...
At the EXACT same time, he used his turbo...

The result was glorious!!! :mrgreen:

His turbo was canceled because he was hit by the "useless" driller that I dumped!

This happened because in rollcage, when you use a missile (driller, homing and leader), they spawn slightly behind you...
Right in the face of broscar...

First we were shocked, because we had no idea what exactly had happened.

After that, well... we couldn't stop laughing :lol:

(( Believe it or not that recovery was voted the best clutch on that game, like, ever. ))

2) I'm apparently pretty good at Rollcage too. I dunno. o_o

Eeeeh but I can't even beat RC1's league mode on hard, and RC2's other league mode just to continue for some reason only causes the game to crash. (If you can help me out with this it'd be preferred to message me about it, even though this is on off topic)

yeah at least I'm not the only who can't RC1 on hard and still can't figure out how I manage to beat it on the CD version when I was a kid :? ... (probably the AI not that hard)
I think when you beat hard league mode you unlock Yuri as an opponent?

No, you unlock Yuri just for beating all three leagues on Hard. You don't need to finish first in every race but you just need to win each championship.

Spoiler: show
The lore of the game is that Yuri is an undercover cop sent to disrupt the racers' illegal shenanigans and after you beat the Easy mode championships he challenges you to beat him, under the condition that if he wins then you're no longer allowed to race ((He challenges them under the honour system, I guess)). In return, if you win he offers to give you his car -- that's how confident he is of winning and shutting you down -- which was specially designed by the Neoto City Police Department to intercept the Rollcagers and defeat them at their own game.


Yuri is substantially easier to beat on Redux than the PSX and original PC versions because his stats were nerfed; his car was originally vastly superior to every other (top speed 382 km/h versus Lenny and Ria's 378 and compared to Jet and Tony's 356km/h) with his only 'weakness' being his strength - meaning that Tony and Lenny could beat him in a fight and Leon could match him - Ria, Lothar and Jet are ill-equipped without a shield. In Redux his acceleration was nerfed to match Tony's and his top speed to match Lenny's.

He's still by far the toughest opponent and honestly you need to just play to the strengths of your car; he can be beaten by anyone (even Lothar heh). I'd say the easiest cars to beat him with are Ria (provided you avoid any car-to-car contact) as she's the best in terms of overall speed/handling, or Jet (you need to take advantage of the turbo pads to negate her poor top speed, which makes Eruption - the only track in the game lacking turbo pads - a gamble). Practice Cross Over a lot - slow down on the bumpy tunnel because it's safer to go slower and make it through in one go rather than just jump into it at 400km/h and crash and if you have one use a controller. If Cross Over is still too difficult, concentrate on winning the other three races instead, as more than likely you'll have enough of a points buffer over Yuri or Ria where you can afford to come 5th or 6th on Cross Over and still win the championship. The key basically is consistency over raw speed; you lose more time being risky than you do playing a little safer and guaranteeing something.

Hope that helps ;)

I was ranked #2 in the world (yes - world) on Blur and Rageous (the guy who you hear cursing me when I flip him over) is a long-time friend of mine and easily ranked in the top 20-30. The level of strategy in that game was insane; I don't think I was the fastest, but I was definitely one of the most strategic when it came to weapons and prediction/manipulation of opponents. I was most-known for my ability to predict weapon-fire, to the point that I was known as a troll due to being able to instinctively put up a shield when someone thought they had surprised me with an attack.

That's why I love combat racers. You don't have to be the fastest to win - just have to plan carefully

Well i got a bit further in RC1 (redux). I got the, win every race on hard. (thanks lenny :D) But on expert i only got all wins in the first cup. Playing with lenny on frontier and skid pan (last tracks of the other two cups) was just to hard to get first for me :/
With Jet or so i could win on these tracks but i was worse on the others ... and playing yuri feels too lame for me. Maybe i should have switched to controller, but playing RC i used automatically the keyboard.

Keyboard not a problem. I can win any league with Lenny on Expert using Keyboard.
Just remember you got brakes, and you can slowdown. Playing Lenny is not about going the fastest possible only to be knocked out by a wall - it's about managing your speed so that you can take the turns without having to decelerate too much.

I didn't say it was easy - but that's definitely doable against bots :)

As for the specificities of keyboard, you just have to learn to "tap" correctly. Don't let your finger press the button too long - you have to give short impulses.

Also, counter steering works very well with Lenny, and allows you to take turns by drifting (but as someone said somewhere on this forum, you always take more time drifting than just slowing down and then turning. But heh, sometimes you don't really have a choice :P)

Well, I got few interesting results.

About 86 takedowns in Burnout Paradise in a single road rage (highway plus Hunter Citizen and you rock :D ). I also scored 42 millions in the Showtime (http://imageshack.com/a/img537/6097/m2DVbI.png).

Most of my "elitists" bragging would come from Need For Speed World. I basically was one of the "fair play enforcers" in that game, aka I didn't used the bugged NOS (known as Cosmic NOS, it was more powerful than Turbo in Rollcage on the most bugged cars...). How I enforced it? Well... let's say I gave out a lot of tickets to the moon xD Here are a few examples:
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjlLuzzBjJ8
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaSFfp22URs
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfJnWG7UioQ

Lastly, but definitely not the least, I'm getting some WR's in DiRT Rally with a gamepad (steering wheel, keyboard, mouse, those are also controllers :P ). Naturally with the cheaters roaming my times are not "#1" but more of the "legit WR" type. Currently trying to get all WR on Monte Carlo and regaining my WR on Pikes Peak with Quattro. Here are my latest attempts on those:
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSPXR_oNUuw
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qr9b7GxVr1M

PS. Not sure if it counts as an "elitistic", but I am quite a grammar nazi, so... yeah xD
