Hi, there!

Discussion in 'Introduce Yourself' started by PixelTHING, Sep 19, 2016.

  1. Hi, guys!
    I'm from Portugal and I'm a huge fan of sim racing! :)
    Started with the DOS games from the Rally Championship series, since the very first one, Lombard RAC Rally (1988). Nowadays still play the SimBin games (GTR 2 and GT Legends) and the amazing Richard Burns Rally and the recent DiRT Rally.
    As you can see, I'm a true fan of rally racing and, also, offroad. Love the Xbox 360 version of Baja Edge of Contol! :)
    Thanks for having me here!
    I also have a (retro)gaming youtube channel where I make reviews of all sorts of genres, since the Sinclair ZX Spectrum and Commodore Amiga, til the most recent games. There's a handful of racing games already reviewed and a couple of gameplays.
    Cheers!

    Hi and welcome to Race Department:)
    I'm sure you will find plenty to interest you on the site. I don't remember the first Rally Championship games first got Network Q but always thought Mobil 1 was the best. Imagine Dirt Rally with those stages, would be amazing.
    Will check out your channel I enjoy being reminded of just how far we've came.

    I still have network Q on pc although its prety much unplayable for me now lol but I did have mobil 1 rally championship for ps1 and I had IRC i think it was called on pc which was awesome. I still would like a modern rally game with full size courses though.

    THe Mobil Rally on the PC was so much better than the PS1 version I got both but gave the PS1 away as I didn't like it. I've said for years a good rally game like DR with some tracks then full country stages as DLC would be a winner.
    Apologies @PixelTHING for hijacking your intro thread.:)

    We have a racetube section where you can post videos here.
    Nice retrospective on some rally games. I think Rally Trophy has plenty of mod support and is still played by some people.
     
  7. Yes, Rally Trophy has still a huge modding community supporting it!
    Thanks ;)
