WRX Demon - Did you look under the AE85(Itsuki Version)? It clearly shows a yellow color available...

That cant be true. Wow, it's got two new colours... Blue and Yellow... Awn... That throws my theory out the window. sad.gif

I wonder what other cars got new colours?

I have not seen WRX Demon more excited for something other than when Shale announced she owned a Scoobie. But nonetheless. Red Impreza FTW. I still might make mine black.

Also, I'm more interested if Siona made it as a course in the final version. Has anyone that has played it know the final list of the courses?

yes i believe they were mentioned quite awhile back. check my course and character list many pages prior. a moderator should put the info up somwhere like the frontpage. anyway, the courses/characters are:

akina lake
-itsuki
-takumi
-2 guys from tokyo
myougi
-kenji
-shingo
-impact blue
-nakazato
akagi
-kenta
-kyouichi
-keisuke
-ryousuke
akina
-iketani
-kyoko
-wataru
-ryousuke
-takumi
-bunta (unlocked after all regular and hidden characters are cleared)
irohazaka
-seiji
-kyouichi
-kai
tsukuba
-toudo school guy 1
-todou guy 2 (smiley sakai)
-toshia joushima (god arm)
-hoshino kozou (god foot)
-keisuke (unlocked after all opponents are cleared)
-takumi (unlocked after keisuke is cleared)

bgm music can NOT be selected manually, nor is there a list. and yes, you can play the player next to you although online mode is what people use 99% of the time. lastly there is NO BUNTA CHALLENGE. anything else, feel free to ask.

there is definitely no siona. all the people who are in japan reporting are saying the same things we've been hearing and they have played the final version. akina lake, akagi, akina, new myogi, iro, and tsukuba that is all.

great another red option available for a car. more ricer red cars, ahoy!

Well, for one, there is no Happogahara. That is a huge blow to my interest in buying a card for the game. That is not including the cost to play it. I suppose now that the color changes to the GC8V are more than enough to try out at least a stock car to see if I will like it or not.

and MAYBE Keisukes FD might push me over the line to play it. That is, if someone gets it in New York, which is doubtful.

yeah I dont really care by the time this game comes out the closest arcade to me that will have it is probably somewheres in the city anyways. I have lost interest in general, ditching shomaru and happo has accelerated my disinterest in this game.

Well, atleast the city is a manageable drive for you. Albany isnt too far out is it? I know Binghamton is quite a hefty drive to the city.

But nonetheless, there is still Tekken. thumbsup.gif

Also, maybe they took out Shomaru and Happogahara because of the new "realistic" driving for the game. But, then again, why still keep Irohazaka?

I suppose it's up for debate to as if why this was done.

What does the physics have anything to do with taking out Happo or Shomaru? They are courses just like all the other ones. I don't really get what point you are trying to make.

Still reserving my opinion for when I actually play it... But I do hope they can update it online with some new maps and tracks.

It was just my observation that turning in the pervious versions to the new release is much different. My point was going to begin saying that maybe they were taken out because the hard lefts or rights (CP1 and CP4 in Happogahara or the M turn in Shomaru) would prove to be too difficult. I mean, you can look at any video and see the turn of the wheel is more "violent" if you will, meaning wouldnt getting used to the transition from Version 3 to Arcade Stage 4 be that more difficult? (If anyone will play it at all..)

Then again, it might not be the turning. It might just be the countersteering. Who knows. I sure as hell can't really say anything because as it looks, no one is probably going to be getting it in NY, unless what Tomo-sans suggestion says, I will definitely not be driving to the city just to pay what? 2 dollars to play? I think not.

So to those who have played it, what is the general consensus? Yay or nay?

Even if it is in NYC eventually and that is my only choice- 2 dollars a play, at least 50 bucks to park your car in a main area that is safe, or 80 bucks to train it both ways to play this game? No thanks.

I'm not judging this game one way or another I'm sure some people will find it 5 times more fun than any previous version, but they ditched my 2 favorite courses and the gameplay just looks too ridiculous for me to even want to play it. That's all I guess. Think whatever you guys want, I'm not going to waste my time or money on this game.

This is just my observation, but in almost every video I've seen, it has been the S2000 as the car that the driver is using. So I would assume that yes, "the new rx8" is the AP1.

i would assume its way too early to tell since the game is still brand new. just wait it out and we'll all know with time.
