    bri's Jet Set Radio (DC)

    [October 23, 2003 05:34:25 PM]
    Won't be playing this one again soon. The Dreamcast I've been playing on has given up the ghost, so no more JSR for bri. Fortunately, we've got a lab copy of JSRF, so there are alternatives.

    Pity though, I've managed to get hold of my own copy and all, just don't have the money necessary to get hold of another DC.

    Stuck on my first skate challenge. Blasted bug-eyed dude! I can't seem to get down how to change direction while I begin a jump. It's probably a simple matter of timing, but we'll see.

    Claiming new districts of Tokyo-to is easier than I'd anticipated. Crashing through walls is a nice bit of fun too. From what I've seen though, it's only a matter of time before I come across places where it's basically impossible to lay down all the tags. Hopefully I'll have a full stable by then and have some fun characters to just run around town with.

    I'm missing the grind boost from JSRF. In JSR, grind speed depends upon the speed you're going when you start the grind. JSRF allows players to accelerate the grind along the way with a button press (and corresponding on-screen foot motion so it makes visual sense).

    Talked with Jose a bit about another difference in JSRF.. Future changes the painting interactions. Where JSR has the player string together joystick moves to paint large tags, JSRF simply uses the paint button and requires sufficient paint. There's no sticking involved. That change loses a cool dynamic, but the JSRF level designs don't really support standing in one place tagging for very long. They take a more flyby approach. (Lots of large tags next to grinds, that kind of thing.)

    bri's opinion and rating for this game

    Titled Jet Grind Radio in the US (They were afraid nobody\'d figure it out from the huge rollerblades? Maybe it was a trademark issue. Dunno.)

    Groove around the streets of Tokyo-to leaving your graffitic expressions all over town. Lay tags to expand or reclaim your territory, do some tricks, avoid the cops and the crazy firepower they bring out against a bunch of Tokyo teens trying to spread some aerosol love.
