Wasted Seconds Wasting your precious time since 2009.


Fast & Furious Adrenaline for the iPhone just got a fairly sizable update.

Fast-and-Furious-Adrenaline-iPhone Yeah yeah yeah, I’m well aware that this game doesn’t stand up to other racing games on the App Store like Need for Speed Shift, Real Racing, etc etc … but that doesn’t matter to me. Even though it doesn’t stand up quite as well, and it has it’s little hitches like the draw distance not being all that great. It’s still a pretty fun little game on the cheap at $1.99 and really shows how the games on this particular platform have evolved. It seems like they’re listening to the issues the players have with it and are working with them. Check out this list of stuff.


Going back to Need for Speed Underground

NeedforSpeedUndef07hWe all probably know of the “Fast and the Furious” movies. Some people love them, other people hate them. I’m of neither camp in the fact that I just kind of see it a date movie or popcorn movie. Just something to sit back, watch and have fun.

But the movie did inspire a whole slew of video games, the highest on the list that initially hit (for me anyway) was original Need for Speed Underground from 2003. And I picked it up again recently on the Playstation 2. When I first played it in either 2003 or 2004, I didn’t have any of the then current generation consoles, so I played it on the PC. Which, in reality, is the way it’s meant to be played. Of course, when I first started playing it I was running it on a system that couldn’t quite handle it at full detail. But I didn’t care. I still had a blast with it.


Remedy Entertainment has re-released Death Rally and made it free


A blast from the past that got released for free, Death Rally. I remember playing this when it first came out, and it was a hell of a game where you just race, upgrade your car and blow stuff up. It hasn't aged too well over the years, but that doesn't mean this overhead racer isn't a blast to play. You can go check out the official site, or give it a try below. It's been ported to Windows and it'll run on pretty much anything.

Power Drift for DOS


The arcade version of Power Drift was one of the most technically advanced games of 1988. Then they ported it to the home consoles, NONE of which had the power to even do HALF of what the arcade was capable of. And the PC running DOS was one of them.


Lotus III : Ultimate Challenge for DOS


Now THIS my friends, is one hell of a fun old school racer.


Outrun for DOS


The DOS version of Outrun, had I found it when I was a kid I would've definitely played it to death .. just without the music.


Mario Kart 64 - Not a whole lot changed from the previous SNES outting, but still a hell of a lot of fun.

I originally wrote this review on Gamespot, but I decided to put it up on here and update it a little bit. At least here it'll get lost in my own content rather than the typically horribly written reviews done by the people who tend to frequent that site.

Mario's 2nd kart racing game is a blast to play (especially when you get 4 people going) and has stood the test of time exceedingly well. But if you haven't played it yet, and you've already got the Gamecube rendition of it, you won't be seeing a whole lot different here than on any other version of the game. Including the SNES. Other than the horrible dual character mechanic on the Gamecube version.
