Whenever comes down to racing games, there will be your Gran Turismos, Wipeouts, F-Zeroes, and your Garfield Karts. Now racing games have come in all shapes & sizes from cars, bikes, boats, and anti-gravity ships... Now one subgenre that not many has delved into are R/C racing games.
Of course there are some, but not alot. RCs have been around long before than you think (of course the 80s is where the RC peaks in popularity), but such a rare sight in video game form... Even more rare if you only count the good ones. Within the next week or so, I'm gonna count down the Top 5 RC Racing games. Enjoy this thumbnail.

Twisted Metal. Now that's a franchise I got in my head for quite a while... Specifically, the cancelled Black sequel known as Twisted Metal: Harbor City. I haven't done a Twisted Metal-related video, 4 years ago and that was a fan-made DidYouKnowGaming video. This one I'm busting my ass off for the past month, and two months on the main script, which I had to cut it down because of being too lengthy. Recently, I finished the last segment of the video, and preparing to finish this bitch... But I manage to build up the courage and ask a certain Dave about Harbor City.
This'll be up by the very first thing on Christmas, peoples. My Youtube's "Mace 2.0," so don't forget.
This is a screencap about a Twisted Metal would've been in an alternate universe...

So I decided to replace the previous icon with something a little more streamlined. The previous Icon I did like it on it's own merits. The "M2" icon represent the imperfections on pretty much anything you throw at it, and it's design is meant to be fit on a cirular icon, which is pretty much every website is doing at the time when Squares are taboo subjects. Now the problem for that logo in particular is that it's not that recognizable on a very small scale (usually 24x24px scale), representing red paint droplets on silver paint. It's also had a transparent background, but using that doesn't look that great (or in some cases not-so-visible) on different colors (I mean, that logo's palette had reds, silvers, greys, and slate) with the exception of Black.
So I went to the drawing board (AKA: my sketchbook) to draw some M2's. Now my main intentions for this one is 3 things:
Now I've made many possible candidates (22 exactly, plus 9 signatures), and one point, I drop the "M" in place of two 2's merged together. Now the one I currently locked down isn't final, per se... But it DOES fit my requirements. I also included several variants, which is slanted & straight, plus I'm basing the main color of scarlet (usually as the background). Eventually, this one is going to be a mainstay for sure. Previous logos I have a tendency to change every so often since I'm not always satisfied with them. The icons are 1024x1024 each and done by using Inkscape.

For 4 months, I've been working on a little list about my favourite PS2 hidden gems. In that time period, I did a lot of things, but as of this list, it's genuine... As in I did played ALL of these on the main list, many of which I didn't own in my 21-year-old hands.
Possibility: Compile the entire list into "The Feature Length" version. I said that, because it's about 2 HOURS long.

Cryptic title aside, I'm officially legal to drink, legal to gamble... In the US. I've already done that shit in Canada. So what am I going to do, today? First off, finishing off #3 off of my FAV PS2 Hidden Gems list I've started about 4 MONTHS AGO, head outta town, going to pawn shops, hobby shops, and pretty much it. It was going to be a big day for me.

The Action has begun, folks! This time, I'm talking about games I've played during my youth. I've played the rare, the obscure, and the ones that's obvious, I wouldn't consider adding one on the list... But the list here had barely started, because I've split the list into 20 parts (21 if I include honourable mentions).
