Can confirm. Broscar's profile pic says all you need to know.

Um, meet 'n greet! Right!
Hi. I'm Xirahii. I played RC1 and RC2 as a really teeny person when my father used to bring home CDs filled with an assortment of game demos every time he'd come home from work.
RC1, and later on RC2, were on those CDs.
I had a graphics card at the time that ran both of those games at the speed of potato. By potato we're talking baked potato - 10 ~ 15 FPS. Outstandingly, I still had a blast with both games and that was before I was old enough to think critically about the differences between RC1 and RC2. Sadly, I was totally out of touch with the RC series until several years ago when I was stricken with the desire to have a nostalgia trip. I discovered that Codemonkey had tinkered around with RC1 and RC2, so I downloaded them and proceeded to have my mind blown all over the walls because this was the first time I was playing these games at full FPS and the sense of speed was incredible. I also was getting my ass handed to me (by Extreme AI, which I instantly started on) and still had the time of my life.
Time-skip to recently - the announcement of GRIP comes along and I giggle like a giddy schoolgirl.
I had always played the RC series with a keyboard, and was reluctant to switch to analog control even though I've got an Xbox 360 remote. However, purely out of personal preference, I quickly became more comfortable with how much control I've got over my car in comparison to the keyboard and I'm trying to become 100% accustomed to it.
Until recently, I was completely oblivious that there was apparently the existence of a competitive Rollcage scene(?) which also hosts tournaments occasioally. I was like, "cool", and proceeded to lurk creepily in the shadows observing their gameplay footage on YouTube and Twitch so that I could witness how much I suck in comparison and hopefully observe how they play and use that data to help my own skill on RC1 and GRIP (although the handling here, I know, is notably different and since a few versions ago mynameisnolongerNeo)
I'm contemplating on participating in the tournaments whenever they should happen so that I can, indeed, have a first-hand experience at getting my ass handed to me, but it also sounds like immense fun. So I'll be thinking about it.
Let's make this game awesome.
TL;DR - Hi, I'm Xirahii. I like RC and this game. Please wreck me when you see me. Thanks!
