Title: Shigeru Miyamoto in London!
Post by: Game_Freak on February 04, 2003, 10:41:00 PM
I just checked out the screens of this at PGC, it looks pretty decent IMO. Is anyone planning on getting this later this month. I think i might give it a shot, it looks pretty good.

I'll give it a hire, at most. There's no way I'm gunna fork over the money for this. Too many other great things I have to get... *Ahem* Metroid, Sonic Mega Collection, GBA SP (BTW, GBA SP has been given a $200 AUD price tag! Sweet!)

I do wish the lads who created this game the best. They created one of my most favorite games of all time (Bonk's Adventure), but I just don't like the look of this game. Too much of an F-Zero/WipEout wannabe in my eyes.

I think this will be no match for F-Zero. A plus for this game is that it's out so soon, but I'm waiting for the better futuristic racer.

It's pretty likely i'll be buying it, unless it gets horrid reviews. i've been playing a lot of Extreme G 3 lately and could use another speed fix.

My biggest concern is that racing in tubes all the time could get really boring. It's one thing to have a small section of track where you can ride on the ceiling or on a wall to breakup the monotony of racing on the standard track, but all-tube racing? We'll see.

I don't know much about this game but just the fact that it's a futuristic racer is enough for me to at least have some interest in it.  I think I'll rent it for sure unless it gets some really low reviews.  It's made by the team that made F-Zero Maximum Velocity so I'm sure it'll be good.

A definite rental, but an unlikely buy with F-Zero just around the corner and looking much better.  However, if it's any good I may buy it used sometime in the future.

Seems like the GCN has an overabundance of futuristic racing games. Why can't companies start making realistic racers? F-Zero is all the Nintendo crowd needs.

This is not a good sign... This isn't the attitude Gamecubers should have. I would think the existence of F-Zero would boost the market for this kind of game, although I understand that F-Zero is going to absorb most of the market. I just hope this game sells well.

I'd like to know how come other console markets don't act like this. The existence of Halo 2 probably won't cause Doom III to not sell worth a flip, and vice versa.

Oh well. I only plan on buying F-Zero, too. I don't have the money to throw at all games.

I like the way it looks, but also love F-zero. So I made a deal with my friend to buy Tube Sliders while he buys F-Zero. Got my bases covered.
