Well one place I love going to is the arcades every mall here has one sometimes even two or three. The Games I love to play are King Of Fighters I love to make peoples jaw drop when I kick their butt with my all girls team of Athena, Mary, and King since my all time favorite in the series is KOF 2003 and KOF 98. I also love spending time on Initial-D 4th and 5th stage. I probably spent countless amounts of money racing and getting licenses its all fun but be prepared to spend since that's what arcades are suppose to do you spend money after each racing match. Well that kinda turned me off, well you may call it a penny muncher place but believe me the amount I spent could probably buy me a new car literally.
Last year a game called CTRacer was released when im tired of the usual MMORPG grinding and guild politics I relax and race along the streets or go race downhill battles similar to Initial-D. This game relaxes me and even better its not a penny muncher the game is totally free to download and play. Now mid last year I stopped playing the game due to lack of any major updates and hacks also news of the pending Need For Speed Online caught my attention. So I decided to wait but just recently they decided to update the game and it seems the the update will be one big massive update from new licensed vehicles to engine parts, maps, even security updated to finally kick those evil hackers out and give us players a fair chance to enjoy the game
There are many race types like, downhill (similar to Initial-D) Regular street racing, and circuit racing there's even a quest mode and license mode to unlock higher level cars from class C to S similar to Gran Tourismo also parts like engines, shocks, neons, and a lot more and if your tired of racing you can play the cop chase mode or "road runner" as known in-game and ram the speeding law breakers out of the streets.
The maps do give you the Initial-D feel I have a copy of the one and only Initial-D released game on the P.C and from what I can say this game feels more Initial-D then the actual Initial-D game (LOL! it was a bad game)
One of the major strong points of the game was there were several events the GameMasters love to interact with the players giving contests and major prizes as much as 10,000 USD worth of items, merchandise even cash prizes were given away in the global CTracer tournament and even tho lack of any major updated the game was still enjoyable due to the online community and active GameMasters
So if you feel that your tired of the usual grinding and politics take a break enjoy yourself on one of my favorite online racing game. Ill be making a new account some time soon. So think you can beat me? I DON'T THINK SO!
