Jamie here. Does anyone else here think that Nintendo needs a flagship racing title? Nobody better not chime in and say Mario Kart is their series because that's just sad. Microsoft has Forza, Sony has Gran Turismo, Nintendo has Mario Kart!?
I think we need a street racer title that would be online enabled and allow you create crews that you drive around with in real time and race other crews. It will have real cars by real companies and using the Wii Connect24 feature new cars can be updated to the server. Using the Weather Channel of the crew leaders Wii will dictate weather for that crew. Crews can be up to 12 people but only 4 can race at once so 8 cars on the screen. You could do things to your car like chop tops, convertibles, headlight conversions, tail light conversions, engine swaps, change your vehicles bolt pattern to fit other vehicles rims, etc. Since the game will be online instead of simply pulling into your garage to do these mods with the cash you accumulate. People will decide upon registering what they will add to the community. You can for instance select to be a shop owner and you will be given a grant of $100,000 to start your business. You select your location from a list of available ones and began your shop. People who race online and have crews or not can then go to your shop and have various things that you offer done. You can only select so many things your shop can do however. You may offer chop tops, suspension upgrades, turbo/suoercharger kits, and body kits. Someone else may offer other things. You also have to set your own prices but here's the catch. Your prices affect your profit margin. WIth the profits you get you can have your own car that you race, or put it back in your business. Some members may be undercover cops or whatever. Basically, it will be an online world of the actual world. Sorry to ramble on about this but if ANYONE has any input or anything feel free. I just think that we could at least get away with the graphics of Forza 1 for this game. And have aftermarket steering wheel support. Well, let me know, later.
