CT2 can be extra credit, but I'd like to focus on the original :)

Awesome! Glad we started a day early. I was in the mood t'nite. I'm playing the Gamecube port. And I've never played this game before, though I did play the Simpsons knock-off.

Now as far as high scores go, are we just playing the Arcade Mode, or.......?

Had to sign up when I saw this topic on Twitter. Great game, one of my favorite Dreamcast games. I'll have to hook up my DC again and get back into it. Just a couple notes if there's anyone that hasn't played the game before: If you can get past the baseball stadium and into downtown you're improving and also, my favorite part of the game is driving on the freeway/overpass in the wrong direction! Great gaming moment.

Funny related story: I was pumped for the DC release of this game and played it endlessly. The interesting thing though was that I had never played the arcade version. I gave it a try a few times and was horrible because I couldn't translate the controls on the DC to using a wheel and pedals! So long story short the DC version is the only one I can actually put up decent scores with.

On a side note, how do I add an avatar?

Yeah, arcade mode -- that would be easiest.
You could always post other stuff from the game in here, but arcade mode for the high-score ranking

I know this is sort of nit-picky, but what's with the super brief TR introduction article this month? I have never played this game before, so I would have loved one of those articles with tons of background on the game. Again, I know I'm being nit-picky, but I'm just saying that this article mainly just makes me want to go look up the game on wikipidia or other sites. And that would be fine if I haven't seen far better TR articles introducing games in the past. (don't mean to poop on anyone, seriously).
