Micro Machines V4

Choose from of a gaggle of miniature vehicles as you take the wheel to race across everyday objects and places like pool tables and kitchen sinks. What with Sport cars, street racers, stock cars, 4x4s, beach buggies, lowriders, muscle cars and an arsenal of powerups and weapons to collect to use against your competitors, that Cereal Bowl milk spillage, will never look the same again. Scoring 64% from 22 reviews on Metacritic.com

Reviews Summary
Great execution and a ton of reasons to play again and again
Extras, like a free track editor, online car swapping, add charm
Infinite longevity, a micro masterpiece in it's own right
May frustrate with slightly unhelpful camera
Having to replay challenges in order to progress is frustrating
Best part of V4 is the level design
A fab game thats as unpretencious as they come

Ouch!
The novelty of racing teeny, tiny cars is more than a little bit stale, and so is Micro Machines V4. (Gamespot)

In the mean time I have been working on The Lost Lair adventures and its coming along pretty good- but I wont be posting them till Im back online. By then I should have a few new pages to add to the first book..... hehe..
Well I hope to back soon as possible and oh' yeah you guys can go ahead and drink my tea as its probably been cold for some time now.. -Catchya' later.

gnome said...

Welcome, welcome oh Deitrix...

As for the tiny pice, I guess it'll show 'em bloody capitalists. A nice Mr. Elderly.

gnome said...

"A nice one Mr. Elderly" is what I apparently meant...

The Elderly said...

yep i can see them now, quaking in their air-conditioned board room.....no doubt this will affect (effect?) global sales......the power of one......

Gnome there was no need to clarify, you could never be miscontrued...

air-conditioned..... varmints...

gnome said...

:) Perhaps not by you wise old friend, but this thread is young. Many adolescent eyes read it, I am sure...

The Elderly said...

now your freakin me......

(elderly considers ignoring his personal hygiene as a detterant....)

however on a serious note....again mr.gnome i salute you, indeed it would be no harm if a number of parents and mainstream media had a similar approach....

gnome said...

on a serious note... don't salute me...

I didn't really mean it. Besides as an adolescent I would have had no problem reading naughty stuff... Or better watching pr0n... even better get lucky..

The Elderly said...

Then i salute your forefathers, adolescents themselves, though admitedly they had less pron to pour over...

gnome said...

You think so, but are decieved... My poor late grandpa had quite a collection of "french" postcards (he had never actually shown my grandma!!).

The Elderly said...

theres a logical reason i'm sure, she probably couldn't read French for a start!


(a lightbulb fizzles out in elderlies brain)

gnome said...

I'm pretty sure that wasn't it... Guess i'll have to ask her whether she speaks any..

Then we'll know for sure!
