re: gt2 rubberbanding:
so it turns out that the rubberbanding IS bad, on a-class races. not just because the rubberbanding is worse -
plus because digital polyph. does upgrades in a detailed and thoughtful ('real-istic') way. they make the car faster one way, slower another, more difficult to handle but more agile, etc.
detail, if low-res. it /feels/ like every upgrade actually affects the car how it could, irl.
on a d-pad it IS heroic getting through a bend ay the right angle and speed lol.
i want the menu music. just tha. the cool, ya know, racing-adjacent jazz fusion stuff? just that. plz. for all races.
the music of grand turismo 2, US, is utter shit save for... maybe a one track. utter shit. i hate listening to
'move a- side, let the man go through, let the man go through. MOVE A- SIDE, let the man go through, LET THE MAN GO THROUGH!'
'SUPERBONBON SUPERBONBON SUPERBONBON SUPPMERBONBONNNNNN'
and i felt things were off already cos he just made the amount 20 with no care about splitting it over two cards. seemingly understanding and also not giving a care.
i figured he had something else be done after i swiped, but nope. he just gave me gas and a red bull. wtf. just go ahead, have it. bye. that's so awesome!
i use the card to pay, but it declines. this was after already using it for a few things, so it was under a bit.
attendant says 'you're good.'
again, i know not to ask or question these things when it stands to benefit you so. i know i showed confusion, said uhhh, but i didn't skip a beat in thanking him and hightailing outta there.
long story short, guy afforded me a tuna sub tonight. and obv $20 of free gas. what a saint! god this sub is so good. he did a v nice thing.
so i went to be harvested of my plasma for a compensatory payment, with which i was to use on a few things needed. one of which being gas. so my mate an i went in to pay, each with our card, 10 each. i tried explaining that to the attendant, in addition to purchasing a redbull. a transaction of 20 shows up on the digital display, and i ask about the red bull. he says 'i already got that.' oki... no, but oki. i know not to ask questions when silence benefits you a red bull! then
instead i found choco cookies. i'm oki with this.
am a yeen. enby. an enby hyena.
