Miraculous Comeback: Ridge Racer Vita Now The Best Game Ever

Posted on Sunday, May 6 @ 04:23:03 Eastern by Heath_Hindman
I don't often convince others to become religious, but when I do, I use stories like this as leverage.


 
"Dear Lord", my prayers began, "It grievethed my soul when You punished the world by allowing Satan to make the Vita's Ridge Racer game. Please, if Thou seest fit, make this right. I don't know how, but Thou art mighty and wise".

North.
South.
West.
East.
Prayers: answered.

Here are brand spanking new DLC additions to the Japanese version of Ridge Racer for PS Vita, new cars with paint jobs sporting an Idolmaster theme. These bad girls can be purchased for a mere 500 yen (like $6 US) each. That's practically giving away such a treasure.




Also descending from above is this trailer, featuring the above cars and Idolmaster music tracks. You know this is a divine gift because that's the song that played when Sodom and Gomorrah got cooked. It's like ear sodomy -- that's good though, right? Consider it a cleansing and you learn to love it. The trailer will play in a frame thingy when you click here. Buy the four new music tracks to go with your sweet new rides for only 150 yen (about $1.75 or so) each.

Who knew that releasing Ridge Racer as a content-free generic racing game would result in such gaming greatness? Despite being released at about 1,500 yen less than a "full-priced" game, many jackasses criticized its lack of content right out of the box. How foolish they are now, in retrospect. Instead of being a 5,500-yen game with a reasonable amount of content, it's now a three-track, five-car game bought for 4,000 yen, then upgraded with four stellar music tracks and two nearly identical cars -- all of this adds up to 5,600 yen. The doubters can eat it, this business model one of the best moves ever seen in the game industry. Water has become wine, and Ridge Racer has become the definitive must-own Vita title. Cheers!

Stay faithful, my friends.
